Please share your meditation experiences. Has anyone found it helpful? What's the logic behind mantra meditations and do they really work? How many of you meditate?
whenever i use a single word mantra they seem to kick up angry feelings, etc. does it happen to everyone else too?
but i don't get that reaction when i use longer mantras "om mani padme hum" or "om shreem hreem shreem kamale kamalalaye praseedha praseedha. om shreem hreem shreem mahalakshmiyei namaha"
my breath also stops when i meditate and i have to gasp for air, this seems to disturb my meditation practise.
