- Free yourself from attachment.
- Some mantras are bijas or seed syllables - pure sounds such as OM. Mixed mantras combine bijas with words that have translatable meanings. Dharanis are phrases that are similar in function to mantras but can be translated word for word.
- It's possible to be embarrassed about self-esteem, because we think of it as self-praise, which is different. Self-praise means advertising your best qualities; self-esteem, only that you're silently and modestly aware of them. Accept even the most positive truths about yourself, without embarrassment.
