A mantra, or chant, often starts out up in the head, where you’re thinking about it. You think about the word—how to say it or what it means. Then the word begins to go down the throat, into a physical experience of the sound itself. Next it starts to move down into the heart. And, eventually, it becomes the engine that’s running you. You’re not singing the sound—the sound is singing you, bringing you closer and closer to another plane of consciousness.
