Bija Mantra is pronounced together with the name
of the Sun God. The position of the Bija Mantra is between the sound
Aum and the name of the Sun God. For example:
Aum Hram Mitraya Namah.
Bij-akshare: The root alphabets of the Bija Mantra and the sequence
of their pronunciation are as follows:
1) h = It represents Akash. It is Suryabij, SuryaTej in
miniature. It is also called Mahapran. Heart is the source of its
pronunciation. It empowers the heart to perform all its functions in
a better manner.
2) r = It represents the element Fire hence it is called
Agni-Bij. The centre of the forehead is the source of its
pronunciation. The palate and the brain are gently buffeted by the
vibration. The result is good taste and better intellect.

When this combined vowel, as in Hroum, is uttered the minute
vibrations work upon excretory system making the organs strong and
