- from experience, I used the KLEEM mantra on it's own, and it has given me results. if you go online and research the mantra you'll see people saying that it's best to recite it on your own, I believe the same. You could either recite KLEEM silently in your head 108x or out loud, and even choose to write it down 108x while reciting it in your head or out loud to elevate the vibration. You can listen to a recording and recite it in your head as well but maybe that would be kinda like leaning on a wall it's not the full effect. Ultimately, whichever gives you most passion/emotions and makes you feel like you've experienced the meditation.
