Eknath Easwaran Thoughts on Mantra

A mantra is a powerful spiritual formula, which when repeated silently in the mind, has the capacity to transform consciousness. There is nothing magical about this. It is simply a matter of practice. The mantra is a short, powerful spiritual formula for the highest power that we can conceive of – whether we call it God, or the ultimate reality, or the Self within. Whatever name we use, with the mantra we are calling up what is best and deepest in ourselves. Once you have chosen your mantra, do not change it. If you do, you will be like a person digging shallow holes in many places, you will never go deep enough to find water. A mantra is most effective when repeated silently in the mind.
