The Benefits of Using a Mantra In Meditation

mantra meditation

What is a mantra? A mantra is a word and/or sentence spoken (or chanted) in meditation. More than just a repeated phrase, a mantra is often carefully chosen in alignment with the user's sought after benefits (whether physical, mental, or spiritual). It's not necessarily the chosen mantra that does the work - but the energy, intention, and vibration created as the meditator repeats the phrase.

How do mantras benefit meditation?

In meditation, the mind has a natural tendency to drift. To "reign in" this wandering of the mind, mantras offer a focal point. And so the process is simple - in meditation, whenever we notice the mind wandering, we simply repeat our mantra to bring ourselves back into the present. And as it's repeated again and again (chanted), it's the mantra's natural rhythm that makes it such a powerful gateway into the present moment.

Do I need to know the meaning of my mantra?

It's not essential. "Om" is the first phrase that comes to mind when most people think of a mantra. Let's use this as an example. For a beginner, knowing the meaning of "Om" is far less important than the "vibrations" it creates within the body.

That is, whether you know what it means or not, repeating "Om" creates an energetic vibratory framework which instills a natural sense of calmness, positivity, and more. Of course, if the meaning of a particular mantra is both known and "believed in," then this will magnify benefits across the board.
