Japa Meditation Is Endorsed By Dr. Wayne Dyer

Japa meditation is Dr Wayne Dyer's recommended method. If you’ve read anything on personal development, chances are his name has come up. He is the best-selling author of such books as Your Erroneous Zones, Manifest Your Destiny, Wisdom Of The Ages and many others. He is also a renowned speaker and teacher.

In an interview with The Share Guide, Dyer talks about using this technique:

“The Share Guide: I know a lot of people don't meditate regularly because their mind wanders and they get fidgety. I know you recommend Japa meditation. Is there any particular mantra or method that you recommend?

Wayne Dyer: My japa has a mantra. It's the repetition of the sound of the Names for the Divine.

The Share Guide: So any Name of the Divine, any mantra, will have the same effect?

Wayne Dyer: Yes. Usually it has the sound "AH" in it somewhere--whether it's Yahweh, or God, or Krishna, or Allah or Ra or Kali or Durga. I list 30 of them in Manifest Your Destiny. In the New Testament it says "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." So the repetition of God is a powerful mantra. You do it outwardly at first and then inwardly.”
