Hinduism - What Is The Mantrashastra?

 


Mantrashastra is the term given to the body of knowledge devoted to the categorization, interpretation, and use of mantras or holy formulas.

Some of this knowledge is written down, but due to the secrecy of the subject matter and the traditional emphasis on oral, personal transmission from a religious teacher, most of it is only available orally.
