Coronavirus – Spiritual protection with healing chants (mantra)

Updated as of 03 Jan 2022

Disclaimer : At the outset, SSRF advises all our readers to adhere to all local and national directives to stop the spread of the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) in your region. SSRF recommends the continuation of conventional medical treatment as advised by medical authorities in your region. Spiritual remedies given in this article are not a substitute for conventional medical treatment or any preventative measures to arrest the spread of the coronavirus. Readers are advised to take up any spiritual healing remedy at their own discretion.

1. Introduction to a spiritual perspective on the coronavirus

We have put this live presentation and information pack together because over the past couple of weeks, we have been inundated with questions about COVID-19, popularly known as the coronavirus outbreak. On our website’s LiveChat, we are receiving hundreds of questions about this issue every day.

Around the world, everyone is concerned and worried.

This is but natural and to be expected. We are facing unprecedented times and humanity as a whole is making decisions in completely uncharted territory.

For those of you who have been regular visitors to the SSRF website, you may be aware that this worldwide upheaval starting in 2020 is something that we have been discussing and alerting our viewers to since 2007 when we first published articles on climate change and World War 3.

Well, the time is finally upon us, and a pandemic such as the coronavirus (as big and disruptive as it may be at the moment), is going to be just one component of the difficult times that we are going to face between the years 2020 – 2023.

Up to now governments and medical fraternities have looked at the causes of the coronavirus pandemic and ways to contain it from a physical and psychological level. However, when one looks at it from a spiritual viewpoint – everything changes.

2. How and why did this coronavirus start ?

The primary catalyst for this virus is due to powerful negative energies in the spiritual dimension.

(There are negative energies and positive energies in the spiritual dimension. Positive energies try to help us, and negative energies try to harm us.)

The true cause of the coronavirus pandemic

The negative energies that are capable of causing such a pandemic (that has worldwide consequences) are of the highest levels and are known as mantriks (subtle sorcerers). In such a situation, one of two things generally takes place. Either the negative energies create such viruses from scratch by materialising and release them, or they use the inappropriate behaviour/lifestyle and actions of humans as a medium to start and spread this virus. It could also be a combination of both. The chart below shows how negative energies created the coronavirus pandemic.

Causes of the coronavirus (COVID-19)

What causes the speed of spread of this coronavirus (COVID-19) ?

The speed of the spread of COVID-19 is unprecedented and is due to the subtle black energy of the mantriks that is infused in the virus, which augments the virulence (severity or harmful nature) of the virus. The powerful mantriks used the subordinate negative energies to spread it.

The next question is – why now ?

For this, we would need to take a step back and understand the larger picture unfolding and something known as ‘the time factor’. Everything happens as per the time and everything goes through the cycle of time.

A type of natural cycle - Day & Night

For example, each day goes through different phases such as sunrise, morning, afternoon, sunset and night. Then, it is sunrise again and so on. Just like we have a daily cycle that our Earth goes through, the universe also goes through cycles. These cycles are spiritual in nature.

Cycles of the universe as per the Wheel of TimeEach cycle goes through stages of creation, sustenance and destruction. As we approach the end of a cycle, the spiritual impurity starts to build up to a greater extent and reaches its highest levels in the environment, which eventually leads to the destruction of the cycle and the advent of a new one.

As of March 2020, we are approaching the end of such a cycle of the Universe where after 4 years (in 2024) a new cycle will commence.  Therefore, spiritual impurity is currently at its peak. Humanity (due to a lack of spiritual practice) is spiritually unprepared and hence easily affected by this build-up of spiritual impurity. As a result, overcome by the spiritual impurity of the times, people will stoop to the lowest types of behaviour that only exacerbates the spiritual degradation of the environment. 

The concept of collective destiny

This leads us to another factor that is becoming increasingly impactful and is known as ‘collective destiny’.

What is collective destiny

For every incorrect action, there is a karmic consequence that an individual needs to undergo. This usually plays out in some form of suffering that has to be undergone by the individual in either his current lifetime or in a future lifetime. This is known as his destiny (and more specifically his individual destiny). Just as individuals have their own destiny – regions, countries and the human race as a whole also have their unique destinies based on their behaviour and actions. This is known as the collective destiny of that region and its residents. While collective destiny can be good or bad, the fact of the matter is that in the current times, due to the incorrect or unrighteous behaviour of society, both individual destiny and collective destiny have a higher proportion of adversity. This is the main cause of why people are suffering in the world.

Now, in current times approximately 35% of our lives can be lived as per our free will, however, the other 65% of our lives is destined and is the component which causes us to face events that are beyond our control. If we looked at only the destined aspect of our lives, it is made up of our own individual destinies and also our collective destiny. In the current times (i.e. 2019-2023), the proportion of collective destiny has increased significantly and is shown in the table below.

Aspect of life Normal times (%)1 2019-2023 (%)
1. Collective destiny 10 30
2. Individual destiny 60 45
3. Free will 30 25
Total 100 100

Source : Spiritual Research, October 2017

Note 1 : Please note that while the proportion of destiny to freewill is 65% vs. 35% respectively, in the current times there is a fluctuation of 5-10% in the proportion of destiny in a person’s life.

What this means is that in the next 4 years, the events that will take place in our lives and on Earth will be largely influenced by the collective destiny of the region we are in, or the country that we belong to. This means that the human race at the spiritual level is especially vulnerable during this period.

Negative energies take advantage of this spiritual vulnerability of humankind

The subtle battle of good vs evil has been waged since times immemorial both in the subtle planes of existence and also on Earth.

Once again, negative energies (from the spiritual dimension) are taking advantage of the spiritual impurity generated at the end of a cycle of the universe. They have increased their activity with the sole purpose of attacking Deities, positive energies and humans in both the subtle and physical planes of the universe. For them, it is a power game – to gain control and establish a demonic kingdom on Earth and the subtle regions of the universe.

3. How will the coronavirus spread ?

As of 24 March 2020 – almost every country has cases of people having been affected by the coronavirus, some more than others.

In physical terms, we observe the spread of the infectious coronavirus due to the movement of people and person-to-person contact. However, at a spiritual level, the reasons for its spread are different.

Negative energies are using the Absolute Cosmic Air Principle to spread the virus.

As per the ‘time factor’ we discussed previously, countries will be affected earlier or later as per their collective destinies. The more the adverse collective destiny in any given region, the greater will be its vulnerability to the spread of the coronavirus. Also, the greater the spiritual impurity in an area the more susceptible are the people in that region to contracting the coronavirus. All of us are more or less to blame for this increase in spiritual impurity in the environment. Spiritual impurity can be enhanced due to a number of reasons such as a lack of spiritual practice, greed and materialism, cruelty to animals, spiritually inappropriate trends and traditions, etc.

Some aspects of life which can emit negative vibrations 

Please note : This slideshow provides just a few examples of the various aspects of our lives which will emit negative vibrations.

The Spiritual Science Research Foundation in association with the Maharshi Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay (also known as the Maharshi University of Spirituality), Goa, India have conducted extensive spiritual research in all aspects of life and daily living. This research provides valuable information about which activities we usually engage in are most likely to result in negative vibrations. It also provides invaluable knowledge about how to increase spiritually positive vibrations in our lives.

4. How will the coronavirus end ?

There are many predictions from world leaders and the medical community about how long this coronavirus outbreak will continue. However, what is more pertinent is that this pandemic is just the beginning of a series of events (which include natural and man-made disasters) that will plague humanity over the next 4 years. The period will culminate in the 3rd World War. From 2024 onwards the new era will start. While the world will be dealing with unprecedented levels of destruction and loss of life both from climate change and the 3rd World War – it will almost be like a reset button has been pressed for humanity giving us a second chance to make a better world.

There is a general rule of life that whatever is created is sustained for some time and then is destroyed. This is also true for the coronavirus pandemic. The coronavirus pandemic will end when the energy of negative energies creating it begins to deplete.

5. How to protect oneself from the coronavirus (COVID-19) ?

Modern science analyses problems at a physical and/or psychological/intellectual level. This is a myopic way of analysing problems.

Unknown to modern science, any problem actually has 3 components to it – physical, psychological (which includes intellectual) and spiritual.

The following table sheds light on each of these components with respect to the coronavirus outbreak and the solutions.

Components of the cause of the coronavirus problem Aspect to the problem How do we solve the coronavirus at each level
1. Physical The virus itself and the fact that it is spreading from person to person. Various strategies that the world is currently implementing such as social distancing, quarantining people, developing a vaccine, etc.
2. Psychological The need for people to socialise/mingle has increased the spread of the virus.

Also, there is a related problem, i.e. fear and worry in peoples’ minds of financial loss, job loss, increased social restrictions, losing loved ones and contracting the virus due to this outbreak.

People need to understand the importance of social distancing over the need to socialise.

For the related problem :


-Practising the Personality Defect Removal (PDR) process to strengthen to mind to face the situation.

3. Spiritual The spread of the virus is backed by powerful negative energies thus making it very difficult to contain.

This is the root cause of the coronavirus problem.

Spiritual healing measures and regular spiritual practice.

These measures protect one from adverse destiny and can reduce potency of the virulent attack of the virus

The following are some spiritual remedies that one can practise to protect oneself at the spiritual level.

5.1 Spiritual healing chant for coronavirus

ChantingWhen we repeat the Name of God, we attract the Divine positive energy associated with that particular Name of God and a protective sheath of the spiritual energy of that Name is created around us. Given below is a specific chant for spiritual protection against the coronavirus. The Names of God given in this chant are in Sanskrit (an ancient Indian language). The particular sequencing of this chant has been obtained through spiritual research. The chant invokes the spiritual energy from 3 Deities or Divine Principles of God. Deity Durga represents a Principle of God that carries out the function of the destruction of evil. Deity Datta among other functions in the Universe protects against problems caused by the subtle bodies of deceased ancestors and negative energies. Deity Shiva represents the Principle of God responsible for dissolution.

The chant (made of 8 chants listed below) is to be repeated in the following sequence.

  • Shri Durgadevyai Namaha
  • Shri Durgadevyai Namaha
  • Shri Durgadevyai Namaha
  • Shri Gurudev Datta
  • Shri Durgadevyai Namaha
  • Shri Durgadevyai Namaha
  • Shri Durgadevyai Namaha
  • Om Namah Shivaya

Please note that this chant can change with time so do bookmark and visit this page regularly or subscribe to our newsletter to be informed of any changes. Some people search for a mantra for the coronavirus – however in this case we have found that a chant is most helpful.

The chant mainly consists of the Absolute Fire Principle and the proportion of the Absolute Cosmic Principles is provided below. However, it does importantly also contain a proportion of the Absolute Ether Principle, the most powerful of all the Cosmic Principles. The Fire Principle increases subtle heat, which aids in stopping the virus. Along with this, being exposed to sunlight also helps in arresting the spread and potency of the virus.

Cosmic Principle Proportion as a percentage 
Earth 10
Water 10
Fire 60
Air 10
Ether 10
Total 100

How many times should I repeat the chant ?

  • I am not infected or showing symptoms : If you are not feeling any symptoms related to the coronavirus infection, you can mentally repeat this chant 108 times daily. It takes a little over an hour to do so (i.e., to say all 8 chants in sequence 108 times).
  • I am infected or I am showing symptoms : In case you feel the symptoms or are infected by the virus, you can mentally repeat this chant 648 times daily to increase your spiritual power to fight the coronavirus. This takes about 7.5 hours.

Is this chant enough to protect me ?

  • This chant protects one at the spiritual level : this is because the root cause of the creation and spread of the virus is spiritual in nature. 80% of the reason for this coronavirus pandemic is spiritual in nature and only 20% is physical/psychological in nature. This chant is required to fight the 80%-component, which is spiritual. Unless the spiritual component of the coronavirus is brought under control, it is impossible to bring the physical effects under control with medicine and social distancing. Please note that this chant does not reduce the collective destiny of people. What it does do though, is reduce the black energy in the virus (infused by negative energies), thus leaving it much less virulent (extremely severe or harmful in its effects).
  • Coronavirus healing chant and ‘time of death’ concept : For those who are reaching the stage of definite death (Mahamrutyuyoga) as per their destiny, nothing can save them. However, this chant will help all those who are at the stage of possible death (Apamrutyuyoga or Mrutyuyoga) in their lives by providing them with the requisite spiritual capacity to overcome this spiritually vulnerable state in their lives.

Refer to – A spiritual perspective on the time of death.

  • This chant spiritually cleanses the chakras of the Kundalini system.

These 7 chakras are subtle in nature and provide subtle energy for the functioning of the body organs, mind and intellect.

Name of God Chakra that it cleanses in relation to the coronavirus Reduces symptoms
Shri Durgadevyai Namaha Vishuddha-chakra (Throat chakra) Coughing
Shri Gurudev Datta Adnya-chakra (Brow chakra) Fever
Om Namah Shivaya  Manipur-chakra (Navel chakra) Body ache, Stomach ache, other bodily symptoms related to that chakra

The chant first cleanses and provides Vital energy (Pranashakti) to the chakras. This in turn helps to fight the infection in the areas of the body related to the chakras. After cleansing the chakras, the energy generated from the chant travels up through the Central channel (Sushumnanadi) of the Kundalini system and goes through the Brahmarandhra to purify the environment. The Brahmarandhra is a subtle-opening (conduit) above the Sahasrar-chakra (Crown chakra) from which Divine energy is received.

To summarise :

Way of chanting / listening Effect
Merely listening to the chant played from a speaker Mainly cleanses the immediate environment
Listening with spiritual emotion Helps cleanse the chakras and the immediate environment
Chanting with spiritual emotion

(Chanting can also be done while listening to the chant.)

Maximum benefit for both the person and the immediate environment
  • However, since the symptoms are physical in nature, we must follow all measures at the physical level too (such as washing your hands, maintaining social distance, avoiding touching one’s face, coughing into one’s elbow, etc.) as advised by doctors along with taking any medical treatment advised by them to protect ourselves from it.

Please note that chanting alone is not a substitute for physical or psychological remedies advised by medical professionals.

5.1.1 Spiritual healing chant for the Omicron variant

As of December 2021, there has been a surge in Omicron, which is the latest variant of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). First reported by South Africa to the WHO on 24 November 2021, this variant has been deemed as highly contagious. The spiritual research team at the Maharshi University of Spirituality has identified a new chant for providing spiritual protection from this new variant and it also will aid in healing.

The chant is a combination of 4 Deities’ Names and is to be repeated in the same sequence as given below.

  • Om Namo Bhagawate Vasudevaya
  • Shri Durgadevyai Namaha
  • Shri Hanumate Namaha
  • Om Namah Shivaya
  • Om Namah Shivaya

Click here to download or listen to the protective chant for the Omicron variant

Note: In areas where the Omicron variant is currently prevalent (i.e., where people have been infected with the Omicron variant), one should stop chanting the earlier provided chant, which is a combination of the Names of Deities – Durga, Datta and Shiva. Instead, one can now repeat the chant for the Omicron variant. In areas where the Omicron variant has not yet infected people, the earlier chant can continue to be used.

How many times should I repeat the chant meant for protection against the Omicron variant?

Intensity of the infection Number of hours to repeat the chant
Mild 1-2 hours
Medium 3-4 hours
Severe 5-6 hours

Even if one is not infected with the Omicron variant, it is still recommended that one repeats the above chant for 1 hour per day. This will help to provide one with protection against the Omicron variant.

5.2 Does prayer help to overcome the coronavirus ?

Prayer and CoronavirusThis really depends on which is stronger – the destiny that the person needs to undergo or the spiritual strength of the prayer to overcome the suffering. If it is a borderline case of destiny, prayer may help that individual (at a personal level).

The spiritual strength of prayer is directly proportional to the spiritual level of the person. For prayer to overcome destiny, the person praying needs to be of a very advanced spiritual level.

When it comes to collective destiny however, prayers by people of an average spiritual level do not work in counteracting the suffering that needs to be undergone. Collective prayers also do not work in this regard. At best, it provides some psychological benefit to the people praying.

The paradox is that those who are of an advanced spiritual level and whose prayers can effect changes in a worldly situation do not make worldly prayers and accept what is happening as God’s wish. On the other hand, in times of turmoil people (of average spiritual level) pray for certain outcomes (such as stopping the coronavirus) but they do not have the requisite spiritual strength to effect changes in collective destiny.

5.3 Autosuggestions to reduce worry – to help the mind remain stable in difficult times

The Personality Defect Removal (PDR) process pioneered by His Holiness Dr Athavale helps to train the mind to act appropriately in stressful and difficult situations. This enables the mind to reduce defects that cause stress and worry, which helps it to be stable regardless of the situation. When the mind is stable, one is able to function optimally.

5.4 Salt Water Remedy

The Salt Water Remedy is a simple yet potent spiritual healing remedy that removes (subtle) black energy and drains it out of our system. Negative energies harm people through their black energy which is a form of subtle energy.

5.5 Eating Tulsi (Holy Basil) leaves

Tulsi leaves as a cure for coronavirusIn these times it is recommended that people grow Tulsi (Holy Basil). This plant has Vishnutattva (Principle of God for Sustenance). Putting a leaf of the Tulsi plant in water and drinking it has a curative effect on the person drinking. Along with this, one can consume a leaf of the Tulsi plant in the morning on an empty stomach. Growing a Tulsi plant at home will help to spread positive spiritual vibrations. This plant will be invaluable as a medicinal plant in the difficult times ahead.

6. Conclusion

What the coronavirus outbreak has shown us is how frail we are as human beings, and that a microscopic virus has turned our world upside down. At the same time, the virus has taught us that what we do can impact others negatively even in far-off lands. It has taught us that given the will, we can make Herculean tasks possible such as locking down large populations (such as 1.3 billion people in India for 3 weeks), restricting travel worldwide, etc.

This is an important point as it has shown that if we as the human race unite, we can also bring about positive change, however difficult it may seem.

The best way to bring about sustainable positive change in the world is to engage in thoughts and activities that are spiritually purer. This would lead to positive vibrations being generated and a reduction in adverse collective destiny. This would reduce the effect of climate change and any other conflicts that man will engage in during the next 4 years.

Fundamentally, what this would mean in current times is that we would need to effectively overhaul the entire system as we know it to get rid of the rot (spiritual impurity) that has permeated through it. The new system would need to adhere to Righteousness. This means that we would need to reassess everything we currently engage in and give value to in this world. We would need to ascertain as to whether these things are of any value at a spiritual level. Do they emit positive or negative vibrations? If they emit positive vibrations, we retain them and if not, we should let them go. Things that emit negative vibrations are like a virus and if left unchecked will eventually be very damaging for society and the world.

If we do not come together as a human race and make this critical turnaround, the path forward will be fraught with pain and suffering.

Yet, if we do come together and make this spiritual change, the intensity of the coming times would diminish, and many more people will survive.
