Mantra chanting benefits:
The mantra is an ancient prayer seeking happiness, health, prosperity, the well-being of one and all. When reciting this mantra with sincere devotion, one experiences oneness with the creation, dissolution of the sense of separate identity and communion with all-pervading reality.
This chant is also a Peace (Shanti) Mantra and, like many other Sanskrit mantras, it sends positive vibrations to all who come into contact with them.
Negative and positive energy flows in all of us. The need is to bring the positive to the fore and suppress the negative. This is exactly what the reciting of this mantra helps us achieve. With positive and healing energy flowing in the body, the mind is better prepared to take on challenges.
Chanting of this soothing mantra also generates divine vibrations or powerful spiritual waves. These vibrations penetrate the astral and physical bodies of the practitioner and remove the root causes of suffering.
Moreover, the act of chanting mantras protects the mind, helps heal the body, and manifests human desires by connecting the individual who is reciting with the Divine.
Advanced practitioners of Sanskrit mantras have laid stress on correct pronunciation as it is this aspect that leads to precise healing vibrations, which are believed to have a magical effect on the mind and body.
The latest studies on the effects of mantra chanting have found that chanting, either done in a group or in solitude, has profound mental, energetical, physical, and emotional benefits.
”The relationship between the external, gross, verbal repetition and the subtle, internal, mental saying is not unlike that between a painted picture of a Bodhisattva or Buddha and that same figure visualized during meditation. In each case, the gross experience leads towards the subtle experience.” – Bhikshu Urgyen Sangharakshita’s quote.
