About Mantras

A mantra is a word or phrase that you repeat, silently or out loud, as a means of meditation and affirmation. Mantra comes from the Sanskrit word “manas,” for mind, and “tra,” meaning tool, translating approximately to “mind tool.” Indeed, chanting or repeating mantras is an effective and ancient technique for quieting the mind and focusing your attention on the inner self or Source.

Whether you choose a timeless sacred word, such as the Hindu syllable Aum (also spelled Om), or your own personal affirmation, the key to getting the most out of your mantra practice is focused attention.
