For the past 10 months I have been working closely with mantra in my daily Sadhana practice 📿. Mantra is most commonly defined as specific sounds, words, or phrases that are repeated during meditation or prayer 🙏🏻. The translation of the word mantra in Sanskrit is recognized as “instrument of thought.” Repetition of mantra creates positive vibrations that uplift those who chant or listen 🗣. Traditionally mantra is chanted 108 times in correlation to the 108 energy channels in the body, although there is no specific amount of times you need to repeat. In my experience this practice has been helpful in cultivating a focused, and calm mind that is better suited for meditation 🧘🏼♂️. It is important to remember that mantra is not magic, but rather a divine tool used to bring you closer to where you need to be 👁.
If you are new to mantra you can start by putting your phone down, and chanting the Bija mantra “OM” 🕉. This is a simple and powerful mantra that is associated with the crown chakra 💜. Mantra can be done anytime of the day, anywhere. Give it a try, I think you will like it.
