So Ham Mantra Meditation

Soham is a Sanskrit word that is often used as a mantra in meditation and yoga practices. It is made up of two syllables: "so" meaning "that" or "universal," and "ham" meaning "I am." So together, Soham means "I am that" or "I am universal."

The repetition of this mantra is believed to help quiet the mind and bring about a sense of oneness with the universe or the divine. It is also associated with the concept of the breath, as the sound of "so" is said to correspond to the inhalation of breath and the sound of "ham" to the exhalation.

In addition to its use in meditation and yoga, Soham is also a popular name in India, particularly in the state of West Bengal.
