Mantra meditation is something everyone can do, here's how.
Begin with the mantra! Go straight to the essence with the Hare Krishna maha mantra – proclaimed as the most efficient and wholesome mantra for meditation by the ancient yoga and meditation texts, the Vedas.
There are no rules and there is no cost to receive this mantra
You receive it by simply reading it out loud.

Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare.
To enhance your experience and learn the correct pronunciation, listen to Srila Prabhupada, the foremost spiritual master of Hare Krishna mantra meditation in our times.
Listen to the mantra with Srila Prabhupada
1. Take a seat
2. Notice your body
3. Feel your breath
4. Speak the mantra softly and just listen
This is the heart of mantra meditation. You should clearly hear each word you vibrate. (You can even chant along with the track of the maha-mantra below).
5. Bring back your focus to the sound vibration when your mind wanders
Keep delicately bringing your mental focus back to the sound vibration. Do not be disturbed if your thoughts wander but just come back to the mantra.
6. Close with gratitude
Keep going with the mantra for as long as you want, but try initially to give yourself at least 5 minutes. Then, when you are ready to stop, take a few deep breaths, relax and offer gratitude to the divine for your experience.
