Mantras are an important part of Indian philosophy. There are many short and long mantras. Some are in the form of shlokas and some are long in the form of stotras. When we chant mantras, we feel an inner connection with a particular mantra or stotra. We also feel a connection with a deity when we worship them. However, this is very personal. 

Many studies show that mantras have healing powers and they help in resolving physical and mental problems. Mantra sadhana (chanting) is great for spiritual upliftment, too. Mantras can be a tool for meditation. For meditation, you can choose a mantra of your choice, focus on it, and meditate.
