If you spent your formative years in Catholic school (I was in one since kindergarten), and were a bit on the defiant side, chances are, you've had "Mary time" (or some variation of it). "Mary time" is when your teacher makes you sit in a dark corner facing an image of Mother Mary. You prayed to her until your soul was cleansed (or, until the next period, after a short nap).
|Om Namma Shivaya.|
You can also write down in a fine notebook Om Namah Shivaya for half an hour or more, keeping silence, repeating it in the mind also and not looking hither and thither. You will have more concentration. When the mantra notebook is completed, keep it in a box in your meditation room.
