A vajrayana practitioner doesn't know that mantras are used for various purposes? Come on man.
I hear a lot of things but I use any such mantras, do you?
Mantras on their own for specific relative purpose? Very rarely. Though as far as I can recall at this particular moment I only know of five or six like this.
No. Why would it be different?
You know after thinking about it more, you're right. Sort of anyway. As you seem to think that the only function of mantras is to put you in the natural state. But this isn't true, the 21 action mantras of Green Tara come to mind. I'm sure there are other examples related to diety practices too. And in general there are different diety practices and each have their own mantras. Each of these practices also have their own specific benefits/purposes. So it is still strange to say you only heard about such things because you've certainly done different practices in your life.
