Today's mantra "Soham"
When it applies to a person's name, according to Vedic philosophy it means identifying oneself with the universe or ultimate reality. Some say that when a child is born it cries Koham-Koham which means Who am I?. That is when the universe replies back Soham. You are the same as I am.. It also stems from the Sanskrit word which means, "self pride."
When used for meditation, "Soham" acts as a natural mantra to control ones breathing pattern to help achieve deep breath and gain concentration.
