What is Personalized Mantra Meditation?
Personalized Mantra Meditation is one of Satsang House's™ signature courses.
In our westernized, modern-day spiritual practices the word “mantra” has become as mainstream as “intention.” But the two are actually quite different. The word mantra can be broken down into two parts: “man,” which means mind, and “tra,” which means transport or vehicle. In other words, a mantra is a vehicle of the mind—a powerful sound or vibration that you can use to enter a deep state of meditation.
Like a seed planted with the intention of growing into a beautiful flower, a mantra can be thought of as a seed for energizing an intention. Much in the same way you plant a flower seed, you plant mantras in the fertile soil of your meditation practice. As you continue your practice, you nurture the seeds and over time they bear the fruit of your intentions.
The Personalized Mantra Meditation course is the signature program at Satsang House™ where students are given a personalized mantra, their Bija, which is the sound vibration the Universe was making at the time of their birth. This mantra is repeated silently over and over during the meditation practice to assist the student in transcending the activity of the mind. The mantra is silent and has no meaning so that the mind isn't focused on any particular quality or outcome. The mantra is simply a vehicle that helps you access heightened levels of awareness.
Awareness, in this context, refers to the ability to pay attention to the choices you make in your everyday life, and recognize when something isn't working so you can change it. Many people face a lot of stress day to day. You wake up, cook breakfast, feed the kids, get them to school, go to work, drink coffee for lunch, and hyperventilate through your day. By the end of each day, you are exhausted. Then you wake up and repeat the cycle the next day.
Developing a daily meditation practice helps you to cultivate a more present, peaceful, and balanced lifestyle, which ripples out into every other aspect of your life and all of your relationships. Mantras can help bring you back to that present state of mind.
In this signature course, you will be introduced to the basic principles of meditation, its history, and the importance of your mantra. You will receive personal instruction in your mantra and learn how to use it. You will try meditation for the first time using your personalized mantra.
You will then learn the practical aspects of meditation, share your experience, receive answers to any questions, and meditate with your instructor.
After group mediation and a break, we will explore the seven higher states of consciousness that can be achieved with regular meditation practice.
