Hallelujah (Hebrew: הללויה,) is a word of Hebrew origin meaning "Praise Yahweh".

There are various meditation techniques. Among them, mantra meditation is often practiced.

Mantra is a mantra in Indian language, and chanting the mantra brings about a mystical experience.

I think Buddhist nembutsu or chanting is similar.

I try to keep "Hallelujah" in my mind.

In the morning, during the day, and even while sleeping.

I like the word "Hallelujah" because there is nothing to remind me of my own benefit.

It is not a title, a prayer, or a mantra that I chant for myself.

It is to praise God by purely remembering the words.

I think that focusing on that act may give you some peace of mind, but I don't think that's the purpose of Hallelujah.

But that is not the purpose of saying Hallelujah.

The purpose of saying Hallelujah is to praise God.
