Sound is a form of vibration. Actually, everything in the creation vibrates at a certain frequency. Therefore, by saying a mantra we introduce the vibrational frequency of that mantra into our mind and body so that we too begin to resonate with the vibration and words of the mantra.
More importantly, when we select a word or series of words to repeat in the form of a mantra, we are affirming it to ourselves and allowing its meaning to permeate below the surface, into our subconscious mind, helping to shift our negative patterns and habits into positive ones.

#1 Lama Tsongkhapa Mantra
Je Tsongkhapa, whose ordained name was Losang Dragpa, was a great Tibetan Buddhist Master from the 14th century who developed and promoted the Kadampa Buddhism that Atisha had introduced 3 centuries earlier.
Lama Tsongkhapa is visualized as a kind and wise guru, beautiful and smiling, with a tall yellow pandit’s hat, seated on a lotus throne, with all the signs and marks of a Buddha.
„Mig-me tze-wai ter-chen Chen-re-zig
Dri-me kyen-pai wang-po Jam-pel-yang
Dü-pung ma-lü jom-dze Sang-wai dag
Gang-chen kay-pai tzug-gyan Tsong-Khapa
Lo-zang Drag-pai zhab-la sol-wa deb.”
