Mantra Yoga is a practice that uses the power of mantras to achieve spiritual awakening. It is also an effective form of meditation.
The word “mantra” comes from the Sanskrit root mtra meaning sound, syllable or utterance. It is a mystical tool that unlocks doors to inner wisdom and higher states of consciousness.
Traditionally, Mantra Yoga is done with the help of a guru. However, many people can benefit from practicing on their own.
To start practicing with a mantra, you should choose one that resonates with you. Then, try to chant it every day for a few minutes until you get the hang of it.
You can chant the mantra aloud or silently, focusing on your breath and the rhythm of the words. Using a mala (a string of beads) can help you focus and count your repetitions.
When starting out, it’s best to choose a mantra that is short and simple. As you become more comfortable, you can increase the length and complexity of your chants.
Mantras are a powerful tool to harness the energies of nature, love and lightness of being. They can boost your energy levels, improve your physical health and bring about a sense of inner balance.
Mantras are also said to draw out specific energies that can heal a particular illness or condition, increase fertility or attract a certain person into your life. When used in combination with a clear intention, mantras can be even more potent and powerful.
