What is a mantra? A mantra is a word, sound, or phrase repeated to help you focus while meditating.

What is a mantra?

When using a mantra, it is believed that only positive intentions and actions will fill your mind and eliminate negativity.

A mantra can be as simple as the word "love", something that you are grateful, or a phrase like “om shanti, shanti, shanti, shanti” which represents overall peace. You can also meditate on an affirmation, such as 'I accept myself'.

Many people are lucky enough to be gifted with a mantra from a teacher or guru.

However, you can choose a mantra for yourself based on what you need in life. When choosing a mantra, you should consider your inner motivations for practicing meditation.

Whether you're looking for positivity, health, happiness, self-love, or just want to find balance.
