According to Mahatma Buddha, the entire world  is full of miseries and unhappiness (Sarvam  Dukhamayam Jagat). Somebody is chronically ill  and doctors are unable to help him. Somebody  does not have any child even after ten years of  marriage. Someone's daughter is estranged from  her husband due to incompatibility or other  reasons. Somebody is either in need of finance  to get his daughters married or even though  equipped with necessary money, marriage fails  to take place. When a householder is faced with  such problems, try as he might, his mind refuses  to go towards his spiritual sadhana like Japa,  meditation, etc., but veers again and again round  his problems. It is only a rare few who could  pray or call on God in despair in such a crisis  and even among them many will not be able to  sustain the constant remembrance of God  essential for our liberation or God Realisation.  Yes, one cannot wait for the waves of the ocean to subside completely to enable having a bath,  but one can surely wish for a lull or interval  when he can heave a sigh of relief temporarily  and proffer his thanksgiving to the Supreme Lord.  The Science of Mantras (sacred syllables  prescribed for continuous chanting) which is an  offshoot of the Scriptures (Vedas) prescribes  different mantras for various worldly problems  which commonly confront a man. There are  several thousands of such mantras but a few  which I knew and were at first diffidently imparted  to some needy and desperate people who  approached and implored me to help them proved  to be invariably effective beyond expectations.  The effectiveness of various mantras for various  problems in life has been amply illustrated from  the incidents in the life of Late Sri Chandrasekhara  Bharati Swaminah of Sringeri in a book called  ""THE SAINT OF SRINGERI'' by R. Krishnaswami  Iyer (Published by Sringeri Math) in a chapter  entitled ""POWER OF MANTRAS''.
