Today, Brandt talks about a popular yet very powerful mantra which is a great addition to your meditation practice. 

This is a short mantra that has been chanted in the yoga tradition for a very long time. It is a lovely chant that is easy to learn and practice, we love to refer to it as a ‘greatest hit’.
