      Prayer and Mantra

      "If you find it difficult to focus the mind
      with a mantra, try some prayer first. Prayer
      brings in more thoughts and ideas, but it can
      also lead into a peaceful feeling and calmness
      of mind. It can really help you embody divine
      attributes, because you are communicating with
      God and what you think you will become. Repeating
      a mantra has a little different effect. It creates
      a harmonious vibration, that even helps the body.
      Before you begin your mantra japa, you can say a
      little prayer. The prayer collects the mind, makes
      the mind more calm, one-pointed and elevates it
      with nice ideals. When the mind becomes quieter,
      more one-pointed, then you can slowly go into the
      repetition of the mantra. In this way, you can
      combine prayer and mantra japa.

      "God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
