Mantras have a long history of multi-purpose use in both Theravada & Vajrayana Buddhist traditions.They might be employed to focus the mind and set intention, act as a form of protection from unwholesome or unhealthy mental activity, a means to connect "vibrationally" with benevolent guides such as bodhisattvas or wise teachers, etc., etc.
