Japa meditation


A wonderful way to get our minds centered is to use an ancient meditation technique from India called Japa.

It is very simple. Japa means to say the name of God repeatedly. Depending on our religious faith, that could mean different things to different people. The practice is the same for all of us, however. In a relaxed, meditative state chant the word: Jesus, Adonai, Allah, the Divine, or whatever has spiritual significance for you and say that word over and over again.

This kind of meditation will help us get to a higher level of awareness.
