Hey instructors,

Does chanting mantras attract positive situations in the moment and people, because I have seen days where I have the mantra OM MASI PADME HUM in my heart and mind, I attract a lot of people and in a positive way etc etc . its interesting and I try not to get identified with this, but why is this?

Mantras are appropriate for controlling the mind. Our actions determine our trajectory:
Mind precedes phenomena; we become what we think. ―Buddha, Dhammapada
Superior actions produce superior results. Selfish actions produce suffering. Examine the quality of your mind before and when you act. Then meditate on the action and the results, so that you can understand the causal (karmic) relationship (of interdependence).

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami
