Vedic chant is one of the subtler tools of yoga. It improves one’s memory and power of concentration and helps respiratory, digestive, reproductive, circulatory, intellectual and cognitive systems.
Vedic chant is one of the oldest surviving chants in the world. These chants come from the Veda-s. The Veda-s are among the oldest sacred texts, dating to roughly 1000–500 BCE. They have been passed orally down the generations.
When you chant, you think of nothing else - it is a form of meditation - a one pointed focus. You are in the moment. It allows you to be in the moment. It eases stress and anxiety.
Chanting increases the length of your breath, helping with short breath and respiratory system ailments such as asthma or COPD.
Chanting gives you a stronger voice and clarity with which to use that voice.
Scientists say that when a mantra is chanted rhythmically, it creates a neuro-linguistic effect which occurs even if the meaning of the mantra is not known.
Even listening to mantra-s regulates blood pressure, the heart rate, brain waves and the adrenalin level. It calms the mind.
Come with an open heart and mind and just see. You might be surprised at the positive effects.
