Om Shanti

As I sat, after practicing, focusing on my breath, the mantra that came into my mind was “om shanti.”  So I repeated Shanti several times internally, then outloud as well.  It felt right.  Afterward, I looked it up, and found this interesting site, that explains the mantra very well:  wildmind.  I really liked the site and plan to explore it more, and do some more reading.  I think it’s better to repeat a mantra that just popped into my head, rather than something I looked up and picked.
