The meaning of the mantra or visual image of sun god?or should I listen to my own voice and kep my focus on that.
I'm a fairly newbie and had been chanting Gayatri Mantra recklessly (1.5x speed of YouTube video) for 6 months. Then it automatically came to me that it should be chanted properly with devotion. So, first I went and read Om Swamiji's book The Power of Gayatri Mantra.
So now I try to do a bit properly. I'm trying.
From the last 15 days I started off with a brief invocation and chanted 108 times with focus solely set on the meaning of Mantra each time.Also when I focus on the meaning of the mantra my mind doesn't wander off to any other thoughts, if it does I switch back focus to my own voice and back to meaning in few chants.
I started discovering that my mind is doing a lot of unusual things while focused on the meaning. So I have set out again to research a bit to find out which is the proper way ? Please,can anybody help ?
