What is a Mantra Anyway?

A simple way to look at repeated word or sound.




A mantra is a word of phrase repeated frequently. Originally rooted in Buddhism and Hinduism, it helps to focus the mind and develop concentration. A mantra doesn't have to be "religious." It can be any phrase or word that is important to you like "I am peace."


Here's an example of a Hindu mantra:


Lokah Samastah Sukinoh Bhavantu

May all beings be happy & free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute to that happiness & freedom for all.


Here's an example of a modern mantra:


I am Peace. I am Free



How to Use a Mantra


Choose a mantra that speaks to you. It can be anything, as long as it is important to you. Choose a comfortable spot, have a seat and take a few, deep breaths. Begin to repeat your mantra out lout or in your head. You can set a timer or repeat your mantra a certain number of times. Repeat that mantra to yourself throughout your day.
