By chanting mantras or repeating root tones, it is possible to silence the continuous mental chatter of the ego and to make the energy system into a whole of creative vibrations, to break through negative thought patterns, to deepen the breath into a rhythmic pattern, to stabilize consciousness, to refresh the stressed nervous system in a short time and to connect the energy system with a higher frequency of vibrations. This is all accomplished with a minimum of effort and ego awareness during practice.Read More
Mantras are used, among other things, to open the heart, to increase receptiveness, to reach higher states of consciousness, to effect healing or to mitigate the effects of bad karma. Mantras can be recited aloud, or quietly and purely spiritually, making it possible to consciously experience the enlightening and blissful nature of the mind.
The primal sound, which is approached by the AUM, also called OHM (pronouncement OM), is the foundation of all Mantras. It is the original mantra that arose at the time of creation, the moment when the separation occurred between 'me' and 'not-me'. According to the science of the mantras, this primordial sound is potentially present in the basic chakra "muladhara". It is said that the 52 sounds, represented by the 52 letters of the Sanskrit alphabet, come from that one sound.
The sound AUM should exist in three separate resonant sounds, which must be of equal duration and gradually merge into each other. AH is recited in the umbilical region, OE behind the sternum and MM in the throat, nose and forehead cavity.
There are 170 ways to make the AUM sound and every way has a different effect. The most common ways are: to keep the vowel long, which affects the surrounding world; keep the consonant for as long as possible, causing the singer to become miserable. When this is done at the beginning of a meditation, it helps to harmonize the different bodies harmonically, as it magnetizes each particle and attracts the beneficent forces.
