In mantra meditation, you repeat a particular sound or short phrase again and again.
This can be done out loud (chanting), in your mind, or in some combination of the two.

What is your personal mantra?

What is silent mantra meditation?
The mantra works like a tuning fork, using sound to create a physical sensation that vibrates in your body and mind.

What do you say when you meditate?
