Anumantranam and abhimantranam

In vedic and mantrik cures, dravyas such as water, ghee, herbs etc. are energized with mantras and given to the patient. There are two methods of doing this.

1. Anumantranam - Doing the chanting thinking about the meaning/purpose of the mantra.

2. Abhimantranam - the above + the dravya being energized is also looked at.
