THE FOUNDATIONS OF MANTRA
Foundations of Mantra
Mantra means resolution. It is derived from the words manas (mind) and trai (to defend). Often what makes the difference between thriving or suffering in life is the content of our mind. Such content can be transformed by approximating the ideal of being unafflicted (Īśvara praṇidhāna) by taking responsibility (svādhyāya) for our thoughts, speech, actions, habits and values (tapas) rather than letting them control us. Mantra practice is not only a way to defend our minds from the obstacles to wellbeing, but a way to live on purpose rather than accidentally.
