La-Mulana 2: All Mantra Locations & Second Meanings | Locations Guide

Before you can solve many of the puzzles in La-Mulana 2, you’ll need to collect hidden mantras. Here’s where to find them all, and what all their alternate meanings are.

If you want to make it far in La-Mulana 2, you’re going to need to learn mantras. Mantras are a new mechanic — allowing you to speak words and solve puzzles. There are 10 “words” (20 if you count the second meanings) in total, and lots of puzzles in the mid-game require these mantras. Speaking the right word, or even a series of words, is the only way to progress once you’ve explored deep into the ruins of Eg-Lana.

We’ve been struggling through La-Mulana 2 for dozens of hours already, and one of the trickiest parts of La-Mulana 2 is just realizing what puzzles you can solve, and which ones you can’t. Sometimes it helps just know where the mantras are, so you don’t exhaust yourself trying to solve puzzles you can’t even complete yet. It’s so, so easy to get stuck. So let’s learn a little bit about mantras in the locations guide below. Here, we’ll show you how to “incant” mantras, and where to find all 10, including their hidden second meanings.

Putting together this guide, I was able to find lots of helpful hints on the La-Mulana 2 reddit — especially u/Blank_1’s mantras guide. Check it out if you want your information safely spoilered.
