The basic teaching on how to meditate in this tradition:
Sit down. Keep your back straight. Sit still. Close your eyes gently and begin to repeat your word, your mantra. Say it interiorly in silence and stillness of body and mind. Stay with the same word throughout the meditation period and at each meditation period. Keep returning to it when you get distracted. The word we suggest is:
Say it as four equal syllables: ma ra na tha.This word is an ancient Christian prayer which means "Come Lord, come Lord Jesus" (see 1 Cor 16:22). Do not think about its meaning because in meditation we let go of all thoughts. When you become distracted simply return to the word, gently, faithfully and attentively. Meditate each day, morning and evening for between twenty and thirty minutes.
