Taj Mahal Meditation

Mantra Meditation






Overview

- The mantra meditation you will be learning on this page is a particular method that I have been using for years. The name of this meditation is also called Japa.

- Japa meditation is an ancient mantra meditation developed about 2300 B.C in India. It has been passed down throughout history, and is cited in ancient teachings.

- The power in the mantra is the sound “Ahh” which stems from all the different names, which have been given to the Creator, whether primitive, western or eastern. The sounds share one thing in common, the sound "Ahh", the sound of joy and the sound of creation.

- Whether, you call the supreme power God, Buddha, Krishna, Tao, Ra, Allah, Jehovah, Brahman, Jah, etc. The sound of creation is within all the names of God. It is the sound of “Ahh”.

- You will be visualizing the first 7 letters of the alphabet, ABCDEFG one at a time, and making the sound of God, the sound of “Ahh”.

- When meditating, try to ignore everything around you. Keep focused on the activity at hand. Staying disciplined will enhance the meditation. If your mind wanders, simply bring it back to what you're doing.

- The mantra meditation method can be used by beginners or experts, for people who enjoy using a mantra to meditate, or just simply for stress reduction.

- There is an audio version available as well (scroll down).

The Method

1. Begin the mantra meditation with your eyes closed and visualizing the letter A. See the letter in your mind’s eye. Try to picture it as clearly as possible, right in front of your field of vision. Keep it in your vision for a moment.

2. Now, visualize just to the right of the letter A, to the next letter, B. See it as clearly as possible, just like the previous letter. See it as solidly as possible in your mind’s eye. Keep it in your field of view for a moment.

3. Shift back into the space between the two letters, A and B, and do the mantra. To do Japa, say the sound of “Ahh”. The sound should go for as long as your can. Try to continue this sound for at least 10 seconds. Focus on the sound. Feel the sound leaving your throat. Feel it entering the room. If your thoughts move somewhere else, gently but firmly, bring your focus back to the sound you are making. The sound of Japa, the sound of God, the sound of “Ahh”. Keep your focus on the sound.

4. Make the sound two times, while you’re in the space between the two letters, A and B. Focus only on the sound of “Ahh”.

5. Now put your focus back on the letter B. See the letter in your mind’s eye. Try to picture it as clearly as possible, right in front of your field of vision. Keep it in your vision for a moment.

6. Now, visualize the next letter, C, just to the right of the letter B. See it as clearly as possible, just like the previous letter. See it as solidly as possible in your mind’s eye. Keep it in your field of view for a moment.

7. Shift back into the space between the two letters, B and C, and say the mantra. Focus on the sound. Feel the sound leaving your throat. Feel it entering the room your in. The sound of Japa, the sound of God, the mantra of “Ahh”. Keep your focus on the sound of “Ahh”.

8. Make the sound twice while you’re in the space between the two letters, B and C. Focusing entirely on the sound you are making.

9. Continue by visualizing the letter C again. Go through the rest of the letters A – G using the same process. Hope you enjoy the mantra meditation!
