Ram Meditation - by H.H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Meditation is not concentration, it is de-concentration. This special meditation uses a sound "Ram". The English word rays or radiance comes from the Sanskrit root, "Ra", which means to radiate, and "Ma" means myself. "Ram" means the light in my heart. In this meditation the sound of the word "Ram" is used as a vehicle for the mind to go from noise to silence.
