This question already has an answer here:

I want to memorise some mantras and also some parts of the Gita to sing them, but I don't speak Sanskrit and think I would find it easier learning them in English.

However, will doing this render them impotent or will they have the same power when sung in English?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Yes they will be impotent. Mantras are energy generating syllables which have to be sung (chanted) in their original language. – user9072 Jul 29 '18 at 1:29
