Mantra was a monthly Magic Periodical by Sam Dalal in India that began when his partner K.C. Batra became disassociated with the Swami. This publication ran for 28 issues from March 1975 until December 1977.

Each issue was a four-page sheet of tricks, with no editorials. Exotic Eastern magic or stunts ran under a column titled "Jadoo". There was a section of commentary called "The Backyard" that ran in many of the issues.[1]
