There are some really amazing (free) meditation, pranayama and yoga apps on my iPhone. One of my latest favorites is called "iMantra". iMantra is an app for the iPhone and iTouch that can help you learn new mantras, practice mantras, and calm your mind, body and thoughts. It is really helpful by categorizing the mantras by TYPES {Buddhist, Kundalini, Hindu, Hindu-Kabir, Universal, Planetary, Personal, and Krishna Das}. It then gives you a description of each mantra and the purpose for which it is used. You then pick how many malas you'd like to repeat it (a mala is the prayer beads, which contain 108 beads).

I have been starting my mornings a Kundalini mantra, Ra Ma Da Sa, Sa Say So Hung. Of this mantra it says....

"Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung is one of the most powerful mantras known and is extraordinarily effective in dealing with health challenges. It is powerful. It is universal. It works on many levels; the mental, spiritual, emotional and physical. Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung is called the Shushmana Mantra. It contains eight sounds that stimulate the Kundalini to flow in the central channel of the spine and in the spiritual centers. This sound balances the fives zones of the left and right hemisphere of the brain to activate the neutral mind. As this happens, the hypothalamus pulsates in rhythm with the divine gland, causing the pituitary master gland to tune the entire glandular system. A consistent listening or chanting practice becomes impressive enough to permeate the subconscious, which in turn automatically influences the conscious mind. Ra Ma Da Sa is like a rare diamond, which connects you with the pure healing energy of the universe."

They have mantras for everything under the sun, so check it out if you are interested! It's a great gateway into a regular meditation practice. <3 Namaste.
