How to Practice Japa Meditation

jappa meditation

Japa meditation is an ancient practice, found in Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism, and Buddhism. It involves the meditative repetition of a mantra, divine name, or phrase.

It is believed that japa meditation can improve the health of the body and mind. Medical scientists have found that chanting japa can increase the release of nitric oxide, which relaxes smooth muscles around blood vessels and increases the supply of oxygen and nutrients to cells.

The best time for japa is during Brahma Muhurta, which is one and a half hours before sunrise. However, you can also meditate during any other time of the day as long as you do not have too many distractions.

Practicing Japa requires dedication and commitment. It helps you to connect with God and removes all worries, stress, and toxins from your mind.

To start your japa, sit in a quiet place, away from all noises and gadgets that may distract you. This is especially important for practicing at night or before sleeping.

In the simplest form, you simply hold a mala of beads in your right hand. It is usually wrapped between your index and middle fingers. Count each bead as you vocalize your mantra.

You should always chant the Mantra with perfect pronunciation and a steady rhythm. You can also chant the mantra slowly or quickly to keep your concentration intact.

The Mantra should be the one that speaks to you on a personal level and brings you peace and harmony.
