Discover Mantra For Yourself This Summer

A “mantra” is a sacred utterance, a sound, a syllable, or group of words often in Sanskrit believed by practitioners to have psychological and spiritual powers.  Your chosen mantra is repeated over and over to aid in single pointed focus of the mind (and can help with meditation).  The concept of mantra is that the vibrations of your ‘message’ go out into the world and into your body to create an effect, like a butterfly flapping it’s wings or you blowing a candle out. These messages can travel far and wide and work both on a practical/individual basis (I want to heal my/your broken leg) and on a collective basis (I wish my kids/those countries would stop fighting each other).
