This came in a newsletter from Satchidananda Ashram in Virginia, where I was trained in Integral Yoga®.
The mind should dwell on a mantra and its vibrations so that it will not divert its attention to anything else. The more you repeat the mantra, the more you produce that sound vibration within you. After some time, even without your conscious repeating, you will be able to feel the vibration within. In other words, you can hear the sound of the mantra within you and that will be a sort of hold for you to get into the higher vibrations. That is why a mantra is a mystic word, which has its own special vibration and, by developing that vibration in you, you are developing a certain kind of wavelength and you will be able to attract that kind of wavelength from the cosmos.”–Sri Swami Satchidananda
