WHY MEDITATING WITH MANTRAS?
When I started meditating, almost twenty years ago,
I felt sitting still and silently just wasn't for me! Even though I was trying really hard and received teachings from the most qualified Masters in the Buddhist Tradition, I kept struggling with my 'monkey mind'. All the others looked so peaceful, but not me!
Sometimes I had glimpses of this silent, vast and empty space within, but soon I was distracted and my attention was jumping all over again with memories from the past or projecting the future. But every time I did a 'Puja' (spiritual practice or Sadhana) which involves visualization and mantra recitation, the experience was very different! I would just naturally and effortlessly merge with the sound and experience calm and peace while being in the present moment.
I found out this was actually another form of meditation too! Ever since Mantra meditation has been part of my daily life and it helped me go through many difficult and challenging times, with much grace, and sometimes even transforming the entire situation.
Mantra medittion is a very practical and powerful tool to center your mind, supported by these sacred vibrations bringing healing, blessings and awakening to your true nature. You can chant, whisper, or repeat it silently. Whatever works! I will be sharing some precious mantras here that I specially composed to meditate, so the length and number of repetition are designed to serve your practice and meet your needs.
I hope you enjoy meditating with mantras!
