Mantram Repetition Program (MRP)

What is a Mantram?

*A mantram (Sanskrit word meaning “to cross the mind”) is a word of power, a deeper inner level of speech containing divine syllables or sounds that have been handed down for generations. Mantrams have spiritual associations and when repeated silently, continually, throughout the day or night, mantram repetition helps one to:

1. Focus attention

2. Slow thinking for mental clarity, increased awareness

3. Interrupt the stress response

4. Produce a mental change in the person who uses it

5. Tap inner spiritual resources

6. Transform consciousness

(Note: “Mantram Repetition” used here is taught according to guidelines of Sri Eknath Easwaran, a spiritual teacher of meditation, from the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation in Tomales, CA. www.easwaran.org.)
