Guided Meditation Using a Personal Mantra
A personal mantra—a mantra uniquely attuned to our individual nature and needs, received from a qualified teacher—unlocks a rich, lifelong meditation practice. But how do we make best use of this mantra, and where does it fit into our practice? For students who already have a personal mantra, Bill Ryan guides a complete meditation session, beginning with a relaxation and culminating in a focus on the mantra. Find a comfortable seat and allow pure consciousness to reveal itself. Format: Audio streaming with audio download Length: 10 min

Meditation Using the So’ham Mantra
A mantra provides a focal point and a resting place in meditation. The universal mantra so’ham (pronounced “so-hum”), meaning “I am That which I am,” can be used by every meditator and leads to clarity, peace, and self-realization. In this guided meditation led by Rolf Sovik, use breath and mantra awareness to awaken your inner observer—wise, pure, and free—and emerge with a renewed sense of lasting joy and a true self within.

Prayers of the Himalayan Tradition
Prayers and mantras are among the most central of practice resources available in the Himalayan Tradition. Prayer sets the tone for our day and connects us to a perennial source of wisdom. At the Himalayan Institute, our community recites prayers together each morning (6:00am) and evening (9:30pm). This is a wonderful practice for Himalayan Institute students to do at home as well.
