In this short video, Alistair is teaching from his car while on location filming for Escape to the Country. He explains to a student that repeating a Mantra can be a useful tool of the mind, like a mental air freshener. Using a mantra to paper over legitimate emotions can be problematic. But filling your mind with a beautiful mantra rather than ugly thoughts means the mind becomes less polluted and the heart will naturally brighten.
