    Very insightful writeup. Just wanted to add few points. Mantra chanting can be used to impress our subconscious mind easily. This helps us to achieve all our ambitions. Certain tantrik mantras when uttered consistently helps enormously. All mantras are energies in their subtle forms. When chanted this latent energy is
