A mantra is “a sound, syllable, word, or group of words that is considered capable of ‘creating transformation.’” •1 The word Mantra is said to mean “that which protects the mind,” or a more
literal meaning based on etymology is “an instrument of mind.” •4 In my yoga classes, I like to remind students to be mindful of the mind, for it is the mind that will often take us out of a pose or out
of our flow faster than anything else. Therefore a mantra becomes a tool or an instrument to focus and develop our minds, to thus awaken our consciousness to higher octaves so we may play a sweeter song.
