2. Find a quiet place and sit comfortably. You can sit on a chair or cross-legged on the floor, with or without support with cushions, pillows, etc.
3. Gently close your eyes and take some deep breaths by inhaling slowly through your nose and then exhaling out your mouth.
4. Begin repeating your mantra silently to yourself without moving your tongue or lips. Imagine that rather than repeating the mantra to yourself, you are actually listening to it being whispered in your ear.
