The Power of Mantra Chanting

“Mananaat traayate iti mantrah” (That which uplifts by constant repetition is a Mantra.)

Sound Is Power I firmly believe that the sound of Mantra can lift the believer towards the higher self. These sound elements of Sanskrit language are permanent entities and are of everlasting significance. In the recitation of Sanskrit Mantras the sound is very important, for it can bring transformation in you while leading you to power and strength.
Different sounds have different effects on human psyche. If a soft sound of wind rustling through leaves soothes our nerves, the musical note of running stream enchants our heart, thunders may cause awe and fear.
The sacred utterances or chanting of Sanskrit Mantras provide us with the power to attain our goals and lift ourselves from the ordinary to the higher level of consciousness. They give us the power to cure diseases; ward off evils; gain wealth; acquire supernatural powers; worship a deity for exalted communion and for attaining blissful state and attain liberation.
Origin of Mantras Mantras are Vedic in origin. The teachings of the Vedas consist of various Mantric chants or hymns cognized by different seers or Rishis from the Cosmic Mind. Since the Vedas are impersonal and eternal, the exact historical date of the origin of Mantra chanting is hard to arrive at. For example, every Mantra in the Vedas, Upanishads and various religious traditions (sampradayas) within Hindu religion begin with Om or Aum – the primordial sound, the sound that is said to have its origins at the time of the creation of the cosmos – also referred to as the ‘Big Bang’

Healing by Mantropathy The chanting of Om in Transcendental Meditation has now received widespread recognition. Mantras can be used to treat tension and many other difficult diseases that are yet to come. The Brahmvarchas Shodh Sansthan, research center for integration of science and spirituality in Shantikunj, Haridwar, India, is the only place I know of which carries out extensive experiments on ‘mantra shakti’. The result of these experiments is used to testify that Mantropathy can be used scientifically for healing and environment cleansing.
Over the last 21 years of my Vedic religion broadcast, several listeners have told me how they have benefited physically and spiritually from chanting Maha-Mrtyunjay mantra for 15 minutes every morning.
How to Chant There are many schools of thought on the methods of chanting. A Mantra chanted correctly or incorrectly, knowingly or unknowingly, carefully or carelessly, is sure to bear the desired result for physical and mental well being. It is also believed by many that the glory of Mantra chanting cannot be established through reasoning and intellect. It can be experienced or realized only through devotion, faith and constant repetition of the Mantra.
According to some scholars, Mantra chanting is Mantra Yoga. The simple yet powerful Mantra, Om or Aum harmonizes the physical forces with the emotional forces with the intellectual forces. When this happens, you begin to feel like a complete being – mentally and physically. But this process is very slow and requires a lot of patience and unfailing faith.
The Guru-Mantra In my opinion the healing through chanting can be expedited if the mantra is received from a guru. A guru adds a divine potency to the mantra. It becomes more effective and thus helps the chanter in his/her healing faster.
My Personal Experience Now, let me give you my concerted opinion based on over two decades of chanting “Om Gam Ganapatayae Namah”, the Mantra given by my Guru. It has warded off all evil and blessed me with abundance, prudence and success in every walk of life. Moreover, when I chanted this Manta before beginning a journey, a new job, or before entering into any new contract or business, all impediments were removed and my endeavors were crowned with success. The credit of all my worldly and spiritual successes goes to my Guru-Mantra ‘Sadhana’ – the complete faith and adherence in the mantra given by my Guru.
Keep the Faith! It is important to have complete faith in the recitation of Mantras. It is primarily through faith – aided by strong will – that one achieves one’s goals. A sound body and calm mind are essential for the chanter of Mantras.
Once you are free from all worries and have achieved stability in mind and body, you will derive maximum benefit through the recitation of Mantras. You must have a definite object in view and a strong will power to obtain the desired objective, and then direct that will to achieve the goal.

What is Prana?
The Five Types of Breath Prana is a subtle aspect of the body. Its has a visible aspect which is the air we breath and an invisible aspect, which is the energy that flows in the body through various channels and sustains it. It is responsible for our vitality and dynamism (chaitanyam). Without prana beings cannot be alive. Prana also connects the gross body (annamaya kosa) with the mental body (manomaya kosa). 
Hence, classical yoga recommends controlled breathing (pranayama) to restrain the senses, purify the mind and body and arrest the modifications of the mind. Prana is the support for the body. Hence the Upanishads describe it often as the soul of the gross body and equate it with Atman or the essence of Brahman. Prana means life breath. We usually consider only the air that we breath through our lungs as the life breath. In Hinduism we consider it only one form of breath. There are others, which we let out through the openings in the body or through the subtle channels. Our scriptures therefore identify mainly five types of prana. The air that we breath in through the nostrils is prana. What we breath out or exhale through the nostrils is known as apana. In some descriptions, the air that travels downwards in the body and exits through the anus is also called apana. The air, which travels upwards in the body from the digestive system and exits through the throat (usually as a burp), is the digestive breath known as samana. Apart from these there are two other types of breath, which are more subtle and are not experienced like the other ones. They are the breath that is diffused uniformly through out the body called vyana and the one that begins in the throat and goes up into the head called udana. The last one plays an important role in speech and in chanting prayers and mantras. Since thought and speech are related, udana usually travels towards the head region where the mind is located. Through speech and the chanting of Vedic mantras, it connects us to Brahman and opens our hearts and minds to divine blessings. Without udana, we will not be able to activate the sixth chakra which is located in the head and achieve liberation. Prana is also used as an adjective in the sense of dearer or beloved as in case of prana-sakhi (life partner) or prana-nadha (husband) or pranesvar (God).
