You can pick any mantra if you already know few mantras or choose from Mantras for Meditation. In Mantra for Meditation I have only describe few mantras and there are thousands of mantras.

Many of you might have one question that how many times you need to chant mantra during meditation. Well the more you chant mantra during meditation you start developing more aura in your body. During meditation for beginners I advice to chant any mantra for 108 times. The strength of mantra grows the healing power. Pattern for mantra chanting are 8, 21, 108, 1008, 10….08 times.
Two steps to mediate for beginners are one be physically & mentally prepare and second to follow any simple technique of breathing exercise.

Step 1: Prepare Physically and Mentally for Meditation

Be mentally prepared that you are going to do meditation for next few minutes. For physical preparation, wear comfortable lose clothes, select silence environment and take any easy posture where you can standstill for 10-15 minutes of time. I prefer to meditate in the early morning where I get fresh air and natural sounds of birds, trees, leaves, animals, river, stream and so on. Lotus posture is regarded as the best posture for meditation from ancient time. 

Step 2: Simple Technique of Breathing Exercise for Meditation

Breathing exercise is to control your breathing i.e. inhale and exhale of breathing. During meditation we mostly choose only one simple technique of breathing. Inhale and exhale our breathing in slow, longer and deeper breathing.

Be mentally prepare yourself for meditation. Select place where you won't be disturb. Switch off your cell phone, remove alarm in cell phone or clock, disconnect telephone lines and place other disturbing things away from your meditating place. Wear comfortable clothes and take comfortable posture. Comfortable posture means the pose you can stay long. I suggest sitting in Lotus posture which is best position for meditation. If you can't then its not a problem. You can seat in a chair or bed but your back should be straight. You can even meditate in sleeping position which I used to practice when I meditate at night.

Step 2: Basic Meditation for Beginners

Very easy, inhale and exhale very slowly. Continue it for about 5 minutes. For beginners 5 minutes is sufficient and can increase time up to 15 minutes. Practice this for one week and move to little higher steps that you will get in next post Basic Meditation for Beginners Technique 2.
