Author(s): Pramod Gangadhar, Bahubali Chougala and Basanangouda Laxmeshwar
In this Paper I would like to present importance of chanting OM mantra, its methods and benefits of chanting and also my own experience of chanting ‘OM’ Mantra. When I first started practicing yoga, I was relatively surprised at how easy and natural it felt to participate in chanting. I had seen it in Temples and heard of chanting within religious practices, but I’d never actually engaged in it until being in a yoga class. It’s a mantra that, without a doubt, holds a strong and high vibration, as you can literally feel it! There are numerous mental, physical, and spiritual benefits to chanting Om, and even some scientific studies have proven the health benefits. According to the Vedas, typical sounds such as waves crashing against the shore, wind tossing leaves, etc., occur when they strike against each other, forming waves of air molecules that we then perceive as sound. However, the sound of Om evolves on its own, so it is seen as the sound of the universe, made up of all that it is. As Maharshi Yoganand put it, to chant Om is “to represent all of consciousness.”
