Word of the Day:

MANTRA:

1. Hinduism. A sacred verbal formula repeated in prayer, meditation, or incantation, such as an invocation of a god, a magic spell, or a syllable or portion of scripture containing mystical potentialities.

2. A commonly repeated word or phrase: “Today’s edutainment software comes shrink-wrapped in the magic mantra: ‘makes learning fun.’” (Clifford Stoll).

For those of you who read the previous post, you may have noticed that I used the word “mantra” in a sentence. After I posted, I realized that I wasn’t entirely sure what it meant. So here it is, mantra.

What’s your mantra?
