Before chanting any mantra, the devotee should first set the intentions in his mind. He should know what he wants to achieve by chanting a specific mantra. You can then say your intentions out loud before start to chant the mantra.

For your meditation session, set up a space that is open and free of distractions. You can sit for the meditation in a room that is well-ventilated.

Next, you want to sit in a comfortable position by keeping your spine up straight and fold your legs. There are many positions to sit in for doing meditation; you can choose any you are comfortable in.

Once you are comfortable, remind yourself of the intention once again and start chanting the mantra. You can also listen to the mantra if you don’t want to chant.

Once you have done the meditation, keep your eyes closed. Don’t open your eyes suddenly; feel the bliss of the mantra in your whole body and the vibration of the words. Then open your eyes slowly and say out loud that your intentions have been strengthened.


The healing power of a mantra lies in words and sounds it produces. These are the vibrations of these words that hit your mind, body, and soul. When said repeatedly, the words and vibrations create a positive environment in and around you and let your intentions reach the Universe.

Only with repeated sessions, the vibration can heal because only then can it be strong enough to show effects.

A mantra also provides peace to mind by withdrawing all the thoughts and concentrating your mind only on the mantra.
