In the meditation science simran is a word that means repetition. The idea is to repeat a mantra over and over and eventually become attuned to the mantra and become one with that mantra. I tell people all the time that they are constantly meditating whether they know it or not. We can repeat the mantra of the world and experience all the effects of it or we can practice the simran repetition of the holy names and experience the effects of that meditation practice. Both are very powerful and have powerful effects. The mantra of the world is the repeating of all of our worldly concerns hopes and dreams. Even when we think we are taking the higher road and repeat our hopes and dreams, most often we become attached to the outcome and begin to worry about the possibility of them not turning out the way we would like. The results are stess, neck pain, headaches, and stuations being attracted that we do not enjoy.
The idea with what we call the meditation process and the simran or repetition of the holy names is to attach our minds to the higher vibration within that is all peace. This practice leads us to our true hopes and dreams without all the worry of them working or not working out the way we think we would like. I could go on and on but I will say this, I usually start people out with the mantra A U M. It is a very wonderful mantra that can be used at any time. For a free explanation or demonstration or reminder of its greatness listen to my audios The Highest Form Of Meditation and How To Meditate. They are both on this site in my free meditation section. The more we practice the simran the more beautiful our life becomes. Don’t take my word for it. Try it.
