I am interested in knowing if there are short Vedic mantras, probably one liners to thank:
- Surya (Sun)
- Agni (Fire)
- Prithvi (Earth)
- Aakash (Ether)
- Jal (Water)
- Vaayu (Air)
Sanskrit is a Dev Bhaashaa. So, you can create your own one liner mantras which will definitely be listened by deities.Also deities are worshiped and offered respect by saluting them, thanking them is not much famous practice in Sanatan Vaidik Dharma. The mantras can be like this,
Om Suryaaya Namaha
Om Agni Devaaya Namaha (om agnaye namah)
Om Prithvi Devyai Namaha (om prithivyai namah)
Om Antariksha Devaaya Namaha (om antarikshaya namah)
Om Varunay Namaha
Om Vayu Devaaya Namaha
One thing must be kept in mind that gods are pleased by devotion and satvik karmas, along with mantras.
Coming to the topic, if one has mastered beejmantra science, then he can make mantras more effective by using the beejmantras. For example, if you add beejas like hraam hrim to above Surya mantra i.e. Om Hraam Hreem Saha Suryaaya Namaha you can attract the deity's attention effectively. The logic is that, beejmantras are like nicknames when called one gives attention more quickly. One thing must be kept in mind that one has to be careful about using beejmantras as they have immense energies in them
Most abundant practice is that one must take diksha of his Ishta Devta mantra by a good Guru with a strong spiritual lineage. Such mantras can change one's life positively beyond our imagination.
Hope it helped...
