Mantras – How to Chant Them and What Are Its Benefits
Chanting mantras will develop one's mental powers and take him / her to a higher level of consciousness. Chanting also improves memory and power of concentration, the essential qualities for an achiever, in any field, that one leads to pursuit. Chanting still remains a thought-after psychosomatic route to physical and intellectual wellness.
Its looks strange to some and it also seems, hard to believe that just by chanting these mantras one can bring about these tremendous changes in one. Chants are energy-based sounds. When voicing a word or a phrase the sound produces a physical vibration. Chanting done in a prescribed way affects the abdominal area [from where the chant notes arise] the lungs, and the circulatory system. Chants are known to create thought-energy waves.
Even when one does not know the meaning of the word or the phrase, mere chanting of the word or the phrase, rhythmically, creates a neuro-linguistic effect [NLE] You just have to repeat the chant over and over, without missing the punctuations , pauses, pronunciation, notation and length and force of the chant.
But when you know the meaning of the word or the phrase, that you are chanting, it will tune your mind towards the goal. This is called Psycho-Linguistic Effect [PLE] Research done on these effects have disclosed that these effects are due to production and spread of chemicals in the brain, which have a calming and curative effect on the body. Mere listening to mantras regulates blood pressure, the heart rate, brain waves and the adrenalin levels.
