Benefits of Chanting: Yoga of Sound leads to positive effects

July 2, 2010 The yoga of sound involves chanting; chanting is a centuries-old technique that connects
humans with themselves, the universe, and Spirit. Chanting raises vibrations of the individual
practicing and a result, people who chant feel alive, peaceful, and centered. We all know that in
order to attain good physical health and happiness, the body requires adequate exercise, proper diet,
and rest. More importantly and more overlooked is the health of our inner self which also requires
nourishment and attention. When we neglect our spiritual, inner self, we become imbalanced and
negative in attitude and emotions.Expert Yoga teacher Adrian Cox explains, “When you chant OM with
the right understanding, it becomes a powerful yoga practice in it’s own right…Chanting OM
creates detachment and empowers all mental and spiritual processes. It can take you all the way to
deep states of yoga, if you have good concentration.” Cox reminds us that “It [can take] a long
time before [any mantra] takes effect. Depending on the number of syllables in the mantra, it can
take 16,000 or more repetitions before it ‘unlocks.’ That’s if you’re concentrating…
Having your brain wander off on to unrelated things while chanting might make it take longer.”

Chanting is fun, easy, and always available to you!

Chanting is a useful anecdote in our fast-paced lifestyles, stressful lives, and during our modern
times. Chanting is a good habit and beneficial to bring into your life, no matter how busy you are
each day:

* You can chant alone, silently, quietly , or aloud… anytime…anywhere

* You can chant with friend or a group of friends

* You can listen to chants throughout the day on your CD or Mp3 player to feel soothed and

* You can chant as you sit still, as you move, as you travel.

* You don’t have make any adjustments- you can chant in any position

Medical and research studies have shown that chanting positively effects the physical body, the mind,
and the spirit.

When a person chants, studies have shown:

* “According to a research done at the Cleveland University, USA, the rhythmic tones involved in
chanting create a melodious effect in the body called the Neuro-linguistic effect [NLE]. When we
know the meaning of the mantra we are reciting, it creates a Psycholinguistic effect [PLE] on the
body. The NLE and the PLE effects are by-products of the production and spreading of curative
chemicals in the brain. The research concludes that this is the real reason why chanting provokes
curative effects in us.

* A study by Dr Alan Watkins [senior lecturer in neuroscience at Imperial College London] revealed
that while chanting, our heart rate and blood pressure dip to its lowest in the day. Doctors say
that even listening to chants normalises adrenalin levels, brain wave pattern and lowers
cholesterol levels.

* Using chants as part of our exercise regimen, helps facilitate movement and flow of the body
during exercise.

* Studies prove that making chants a part of our daily yoga can help achieve greater weight loss in
a shorter span of time.

* Neuro-scientist Marian Diamond from the University of California found that chanting helps block
the release of stress hormones and increases immune function. It also keeps our muscles and
joints flexible for a long time.

* The body’s energy and vitality are augmented by regular chanting.

* Chanting cures depression: An 8-week study was carried out at the Samarya Center for Integrated
Movement Therapy and Ashtanga Yoga in Seattle, WA, to see the effects of chanting on general
well-being and particularly respiratory functions in people suffering from mild-to-severe
depression. The results showed that chanting helped participants increase control over their
breath and expiratory output level. The participants claimed that chanting reduced their anxiety
and improved their mood. Researchers thus concluded that if done at least once a week, chanting
is an effective means of enhancing people’s moods in the immediate present, as well as over an
extended period of time.” (http://completewellbeing.com)

Enjoy the exploration of chanting…Don’t hold back. Chanting leads to consciousness, moving
beyond thought into freedom.

Thank you. Anand ji, for your kind sentiments, unlike some others who would just ram... more  
Dineshji, i am on the verge of becoming a fan of yours for your true questioning..its a privilege to meet you...this journey of 'how OM affects health' can be taken up jointly...till so far, after shredding the complex terms used, the essence was the distinct interconnectedness of our hormonal and nervous systems...which are heavily dependent on emotional levels prevailing than on the intellectual influences.....kehne ka matlab yeh hai ki influences of breathing and 'oomm sounds' will affect these systems and hence bodily functions indirectly.
yes, the same oomm like sounds are produced in many musical instruments and their vaster range may have more beneficial affects than only 'oomm' chanting, but we could investigate this and see what we come up with..by studying...2-3 groups doing this practice and 2-3 groups doing same things but without this practice would have to be studied...
and dear Dineshji, you are not missing but are actually grasping something that others have not grasped so far...that,
healing or self-development starts by questioning and not accepting just because it is in the books/exercises of yore.
great to be friends with you..your quest is original, actual,real...wow.
yes, the breathing exercises are mystical without calling themselves so.....and if undertaken will lead to OMmm ka fundas....

you see, the mystical part of life is in the quest, the answers are just a by-product of the same..whih is what the chanting of oommm would actually lead to...what? the flowering of your unique individuality which is connected with the universe (and you can feel it as well)...let the quest continue... more  
Dinesh ji, well, it can not be proved scientifically, how chanting of OM can cure certain diseases, but with practical experience and with faith, I can tell you that if you chant OM daily for 15 minutes at least in the morning and before sleep, with closed eyes, it will certainty leave you tension free and will get you good sleep. I think, in my post, it is adequately explained, it is a question of belief and doing it. It is not blind faith only, but for achieving some thing in life, you have to believe some body. more
