A bija mantra, also known as a seed mantra, is a one-syllable sound used in meditation or yoga practice. The term comes from the Sanskrit, bija, meaning “seed,” man, meaning “to think,” and tra, meaning “liberate.”
In general, chanting a mantra focuses concentration on one purpose and/or stills the mind. The mantras are typically chanted as the yogi relaxes in a cross-legged seated position or while lying down.
The best known bija mantra is Om ॐ (or Aum) , which is the sound of Brahman, the vibration or primordial sound. It is often chanted during yoga practice and meditation.
