Mantras are a particular sequence of significant words, almost like a prayer, that you repeat over and over again. You can say them out loud, whisper them to yourself, write them down, or just think them. It’s a powerful and meditative technique and can be used by anyone at any time.
Mantras are words that have been received by Rishis (‘seers’) during meditation, thousands of years ago, and the words are still very much alive. The sound and vibration of these Sanskrit words are suppost to be the ‘purest’ on earth. They have a very meditative effect on our mind and are powerful enough to awake emotions in ourselves that we cannot foresee.
Some of the most known mantras might be ‘Om Shanti Shanti Shanti’ or ‘Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu’, or even the Hare Krishna Mantra.
But besides reciting these thousand year old mantras in Sanskrit, we can also come up with mantras that fit our modern world language. In this case ‘mantra’ means to repeat a sentence to yourself, over and over again, that can help you to look a little friendlier at the world and at yourself. A mantra can help you to become calmer and clearer in your mind.
