Namaskarm to my fellow Hindus, I am Pragasen Chetty (Preggie ) from Durban, South Africa. I would really appreciate it if someone could please assist me with the above mentioned issue. I am aware that when some people meditate, they touch different parts of their bodies while saying a mantra/prayer. I was informed by a Guru in my country that when meditating to Lord Shiva, we should touch our ears, eyes, mouth, heart , etc. And say: "Aum Kili Nama Shiva, Shiva Shivaya Namah". Not sure if that is correct. But being a devotee of Lord Narayana and Lord Hanuman, what should one say and do before meditating? Please help.
