Mantras create a positive, friendly and a healing effect. In Ayurveda, apart from herbal remedies, mantra recitation also to enhance the healing.

When mantras are chanted, sound energy is generated and the vibration of that energy is diffused distributed into the nervous system by nadis through six major chakras situated along the length of the spinal cord and a seventh at the crown of the head.

These chakras can be co-related to the plexuses of the modern physiology. When energy passes from the nadis to these plexuses of the physical nervous system, it turns neural and is passed on to the nervous which in turn obey the brain and then circulated throughout the body through blood. So that each cell of our body get oxygenated and the body get high energy.


Meditation is relaxation. It is not about concentration, it is actually about de concentration. It is not about focusing ones thoughts on one thing, but instead on becoming thoughtless.

With the help of meditation, the physiology undergoes a change and every cell in the body is filled with energy, this results in joy, peace and enthusiasm.
