mantra मन्त्र

Definition: (From the root man, ‘think’) denotes in the Rigveda and later the ‘hymn’ as the product of the singer’s creative thought. In the Brāhmaηas the word is regularly used of the poetic and prose utterances of the Rṣis, including not merely the verse parts of the Samhitās, but also the prose formulae that betray by their style their special and archaic character.
