Can I chant a mantra after eating?

To recite mantras, you must have a clean mind and spirit, and nothing else. It is quite OK to sing mantras after eating meat (non-veg). However, if you are eating spicy foods or salty items, then you should chant before eating so that the negative qualities of these objects are removed by chanting first.

Can we eat non-veg after chanting Lalitha Sahasranama?

No way, no how. It is beneficial to be vegetarian or eat Satvik cuisine when doing Pooja, reading shlokas or mantras, or meditating on a daily basis. Sahasranama chanting is one of the greatest kinds of Pooja and is performed with utmost reverence and devotion. Therefore, it is not acceptable to eat anything while performing this mantra.

People who are not able to give up meat completely can still perform the mantra. But only pure vegetarians are allowed to eat food while performing the mantra, as any other creature's suffering comes from hatred against life, which is antithetical to spirituality.

In conclusion, yes you can eat non-vegetarian after chanting Lalita Sahasranama.

Can we chant two mantras simultaneously?

Yes, you can sing two or more mantras at the same time. In fact, this is usually done when performing mantra yoga in order to increase its effectiveness.

The main rule with mantras is that they must be said completely before saying any other words. So if you are chanting a hundred-mantra sequence, you cannot say any other words while you are singing the mantras. When you are finished, start over again with the first mantra.

This practice is called "simultaneous chanting" and it is common in high-level vajrayana practices. The aim is not so much to recite all the mantras but to concentrate fully on each one. This allows the practitioner to gain deeper insight into whatever topic he or she is focusing on at the moment.

Simultaneous chanting has many benefits. First of all, it is extremely difficult to lose your mind while doing this exercise. Even if you get distracted for a few seconds, you can simply return to where you left off later!

Secondly, by engaging both sides of your brain together, simultaneous chanting helps to improve your memory and focus while increasing neural connectivity between them.

What are the mantras in Buddhism?

A mantra is a holy utterance (syllable, phrase, or poem) in Hinduism and Buddhism that is said to have mystical or spiritual potency. Mantras are either stated aloud or sounded internally in one's mind, and they are either repeated continually for a period of time or sounded only once. The term "mantra" may also be applied to a series of words or phrases that express some idea or concept.

In Buddhism, there are several hundred mantras, many of which are used in meditation. Some examples include: "Om", "Gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha", and "Namo Amitabha". Many other mantras not included here do exist as well.

In Hinduism, there are millions of mantras written by saints and philosophers over the centuries. Some examples include: "Om shanti shanti shanti", "Hare Krishna", and "Tat twam asi". There are also many sacred mantras that cannot be spoken aloud.

Mantras are important tools for spirituality because through their repetition we connect with our inner self, release negative energy, and grow spiritually. They can also help us focus on something for a period of time when needed.

In Buddhism, people often use songs or poems instead of mantras because they are easier to remember and speak out loud.

Do you have to chant out loud?

The sounds can be chanted aloud or internally. When you recite the mantra inwardly, the "inner sound" becomes the focus of your meditation. When you say the mantra aloud, the sound of the mantra takes center stage in your mind. This is thought to be an excellent approach to begin using the mantra. As you become more familiar with it, you can switch up how you say the mantra over time so that it begins to flow more naturally.

For example, if you start off saying the mantra quietly to yourself, then as you gain confidence and strength you may choose to speak it out loud. Eventually, you may even be able to whisper it under running water without opening your mouth. But whatever method you use, make sure that you remain focused on the sound of the mantra rather than the meaning behind it. If you think about the meaning of the words instead of just hearing them, then you have failed to accomplish their purpose of bringing you peace.

Some people believe that you should only say the mantra loudly when you are alone so that there is no chance of distracting yourself with other thoughts. However, this is not necessary. You can say it softly to yourself anywhere at any time. The important thing is that you remain focused on your breath or your chosen object (such as a candle) while you say the mantra.

After a few weeks or months, you should find that you are able to meditate using the mantra without having to open your mouth.
