A Mantra In Five Heartbeats

One meditation technique calls for the practitioner to recite a phrase with relaxing associations as a kind of personal mantra, in rhythm with a slow pace of breathing. The mantra is thought or softly spoken during an exhalation that lasts for the duration of 5 heartbeats.

A phrase that I’ve tried with this technique is: Waves fall into a pebble shore.

What mantra would you use?
