    I love learning new things!!1 This is awesome, Andrea and I am so glad that you shared it!! I would just think that doing exactly 108 repetitions would be tough. Practice makes perfect, I guess.

    Andrea, what a wonderful post! This is exactly what I needed to read today 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing. I enjoyed learning about this mantra and the specific meaning that it holds. I did yoga and meditation in San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala, which included several “Kirtan”s. This mantra was one that we chanted, and these groups made me feel so powerful and connected.

    I always wanted to do a mantra myself but I have never seen any good pattern until I found your article. This is a good content and the step by step information are very organize and easy to understand. I have done a mantra practice before when I was as young as 14years old and it helps me with something. I can’t explain how did it help me but I know there’s something happened to me. I always become a leader in our school even become a core commander of our PMT days. My leadership skills comes out as if they trusted me a lot might be because I am more conscious about every words that comes out in my mouth. Now that I’m 33 and with all the stressed and problems that came in my life I thought about doing it again to relax myself and find my innermost importance in this world. The technique of using mala prayer beads while reciting is very helpful as it’s hard to count while you’re in your deepest mind searching. I hope I can find one of this in my country. This is a good read and I will be doing this mantra. It’s just hard to pronounce the Narayanaya. Thanks so much!

  6. Wow Andrea! What an interesting topic! I’m always wanting to learn how to meditate better and this is the most perfect thing I’ve found. 🙂 I will try the mantra next time I meditate.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Andrea,

    Thanks for the wonderful post. I don’t know a lot about Mantra other than what I had been told, that it is a powerful technique to clear the mind of all negative forces and bring peace. So I listened to the audio of Om Namo Narayanaya and while I found it soothing to listen to, I’m sure to get maximum benefits one would need to be actually meditating. Thanks for an enlightening post 🙂

  8. I have been interested in Yoga for sometime but don’t know a lot about it. I found this very interesting and I will come back a reread it later to gain more understanding. I look forward to reading more of your work in the future. Thanks for sharing a great post

    hey Andrea. Great post. Some really interesting information here. I think most people nowadays lead such busy lives that we get caught up in everything that is going on around us and rarely take time out just to sit, relax and embrace something like this mantra. I totally believe things like this can help put some perspective on life and help us better cope with day to day stress. thanks for sharing.
