1. Manasa japa - mental repetition. 2. Upamshu japa - repetition as a whisper. 3. Vaikhari japa - repetition which others can also hear.
Mantras derive their power from the power of vibrations. They produce effects but need not have any literal meaning. Prayers are meaningful words addressed to Gods and produce results if said with faith and devotion.

We say, the world is created from Veda.
Even material world, objects, and beings.
What is the relationship between objects and Veda.
Primarily we have three formats of Veda.
Rik, Yajus, and Sama.
Richas of Rigveda and vibrations of certain patterns called chhandas or meter.
Yajus is prose. being sound they are also vibrations.
Sama is music. again vibrations.
The most efficient way in which material can exist in space is as a sphere.
So let us look at the sphere itself as a manifestation of the Vedas.
In the Vedic parlance Rigveda is called छन्दोभ्यस्ता
any dimension such as length, breadth, height is called छन्दोभ्यस्ता.
In the case of the sphere the appropriate dimension should be diameter.
Sphere is a body that has a single dimension, the diameter.
So, for the sphere, Rigveda is its diameter.
Samaveda is the boundary or the outer limit for everything, the boundary.
This applies to all objects.
Every object has dimensions and an outer boundary.
And also a mass inside.
Take a water tank.
How much water it can hold depends on its dimensions, its volume.
Then there is the outer boundary made of a brick wall or plastic or metal.
Then there is the water inside.
So, three things - dimensions, boundary, and the mass or material inside.
Samaveda is called त्रिचम्
Sama is three times rigveda
How much is the circumference of a sphere?
diameter multiplied by pi
roughly three times the diameter.
Do you see the connection?
If the diameter is Rigveda, then Samaveda which is the boundary, the circumference is three times that.
This is how vibrations or Rigveda and Samaveda act together to form the dimension and boundary of any object, all objects.
Even while chanting the Veda.
When Rigveda mantras are sung at a speed which is one third
If it takes 30 seconds to chant a Rigveda mantra the same mantra if sung in the sama format it would take 90 seconds. Three times.
This is the relationship between Rigveda and Samaveda.
Same in Diameter and Circumference also.
And the material that fills the space defined by the measurements and boundary is Yajurveda.
Yajurveda is called Vaya.
Rigveda - dimensions
Samaveda - Boundary
and Yajurveda, the material that fills it.
All that we see, they are all assemblages of these three.
For any body, any object at the time of creation, Rigveda becomes its dimensions, Samaveda becomes the skin or boundary of that object, and Yajurveda becomes the mass that fills it.
Like, take the case of Surya.
That its radius should be 6,96,340 km is decided and set by Rigveda.
Then outer skin based on this dimension enclosing the mass inside, Samaveda becomes that.
And the fire, the material that is inside is Yajurveda.
