Mantras for Astral Projection

In the teachings of Samael Aun Weor, there are many mantras that are taught as a mean to achieve astral projection. The latter is an ability through which we can safely leave our physical body at will in order to consciously enter the astral plane (which is in the fifth dimension), in order to explore more of the reality than what we know of here in this physical world.  This was an important practice in many esoteric and occult schools of various religions and spiritual traditions, because

After walking through this ancient site and trying to get the feel for it, I have sat down under a tree on a courtyard, which in the
