We have brought you a collection of 5 meditation mantras. This collection of mantras will help you calm your mind, body, and spirit as well as help them all work in sync with each other.
We have all tried quick meditation without the mantras.
Let’s now try Mantra meditation. You can choose any of these 5 meditation mantras that better suit your purpose.
We’ll explain these mantras so that you can understand the meaning of these mantras instead of saying them for the sake of it. But before that let’s learn how to do mantra meditation.
# Mantra Meditation:
First, let’s start by understanding what you expect out of mantra meditation. Is it to relieve stress or to boost your immune system or to lower your blood pressure? Or is it solely for healing your spirit and letting go of harmful things?
See once you figure out what you are after then you’ll realize which mantra to pick of the lot.
Now, it can be just one mantra or more. It depends on your needs.
Mantra Meditation Steps:
Find a peaceful and calm place to perform the meditation. A place where people won’t disturb you.
Sit with your legs crossed in a comfortable position with your eyes closed and your knees below your hips level. This will ensure that your spine remains straight during meditation.
We have been always told to concentrate on your breath and to take a deep breath in and to let the breathe out.
Unlike other yoga practices and meditation here you don’t have to control your breaths.
Breathe naturally and try to focus on your natural breathes.
This might be the toughest of the part of mantra meditation because we can’t help but control breathing once we become aware of it. So, the mantra that you have to follow here is to keep trying till you succeed.
Here you have the luxury of choice with the mantra as well as how you chant it. Now, chant the mantra you have chosen as you see fit.
There is no time limit, and you can switch to meditation without mantra at any point if you feel like it. Continue meditating as long as you want.
# Meditation Mantras:
Mantra 1: Om.
It basically means, “it is, will be or to become.” Om will always exist whether it’s the past, in the present or in the future.
In the same manner, it also represents birth, death, and rebirth.
There’s a story behind how the mantra “om” came into being. It came from Hindu mythology.
Brahma was just one at the beginning of the time before the lifeforms were created. He said, “I am one, but may I become many?” It was that very thought that created vibrations, these vibrations then settled into a sound. That sound is om.
It takes you deeper into your mind and makes you aware of yourself on the spiritual level.
It is a source of positive vibes which manipulates the environment around you to give you positive vibrations.
Saying the mantra, open ups your sinuses which in turn clears the airways.
Emotional stability is the most sought-after benefit of Om. Emotional stability helps you make rational life choices.
Other benefits include improved voice, low blood pressure, normal heart rhythm, and not to forget the skin cleanse that brings the glow to your face.

We also ask the god to enlighten us with knowledge and wisdom we are always in the need of.
And finally, we thank the sun god for everything that we have because of him. Specifically for the life and for the divine.
