~Bija~

Bija is a Sanskrit term that literally translates to “seed.” In yoga, this word can be used in a number of ways. Firstly, bija is a metaphor for the starting point or origin of all creation. It’s the seed from which everything originated.

Another common use of the term is to refer to bija mantras. These are seed mantras — one syllable sounds which have no literal meaning, but connect to spiritual principles or energies. It is believed that these seeds have the potential to accelerate physical, emotional and spiritual growth and transformation.
