Sound, Language of the Vibration of Effect (the living force of healing)

Shi Yao Hai/ June 30, 2017/ Consciousness Growth, Healing, Understanding Mind/ 0 comments

Mantram: The true essence of mantra is a method for utilizing life energy to influence the movement of karma (literally action)… There is no doer in an individual’s body nor in any personal sense of self.
