Why We All Should Choose a Mantra

“When you recite a mantra, you make yourself positive, pure and your vibration is very penetrating.”

-Yogi Bhajan

Life can be hard at times and we all have different ways to cope with stress and problems that arise, but what about the mind? Sometimes negative thoughts enter that can make us unhappy.  It can be something someone said to us that wasn’t very nice or it could be our own perception of the event that manifests into negativity.

A mantra is a Sanskrit word derived from two roots, man meaning mind; and tra meaning instrument or tool, is a sacred utterance, sound, or word, that is said to give power to the person who chants or recites it.  This results in a higher level of consciousness and shifts negativity into positive, food for the soul.

Mantras can also be positive affirmations you say to yourself for encouragement.
