The term mantra translates as “to protect the mind”. Interestingly, it does not mean a set of words and how to repeat them. The idea behind the translation is that of valuing and protecting the precious quality of one’s consciousness. One would use phrases or affirmations that remind one of the truths of being and of the greater truths of reality.
