    Why Meditation or Pranayama?
    Respiratory rate increases on crying and decreases while relaxing. i.e when we are in distress, our breathing rate increases and when we are relaxed, the breathing process gets relaxed. Hence, to relax and enjoy happiness, one needs to reduce his rate of respiration. This is willfully done by reducing the rate of respiration. Rate of respiration can be wilfuly increased or decreased by yoga, meditation and chanting mantras. Meditation or Pranayama is the process of slow and deep breathing along with chaning mantras to lower the rate of respiration.

    Chanting AUM helps in winning over materialistic desires
    Fools are the ones who do meditation and yoga for potent boons like immense wealth, gaining powerful weapons or winning over the three worlds. People easily gets influenced to tantric and black magic to win over your opponents but they fails to realize that the aim of this materialistic life is not to win against the opponent but to win over all evil and materialistic desires.
    In verse 13 of chapter 8, lord Krishna recommends the chanting of AUM to attain the highest goal of the life. Again in verse 8 of chapter six, lord Krishna declares “The existence of AUM in all Vedas and the existence of his in all humans.”
    Chanting AUM is the way to enlightenment or self-realization
    Through continuous practice of meditation, chanting, breathing exercises and yoga, one experiences this stage of complete freedom, total clarity, inner peace and universal harmony rejecting all the desires and materialistic forces. Turiya is the eternal reality, only one that is above all universal phenomena. It is this stage that a spiritual follower realizes the divine magic of AUM.AUM is the only sound that pervades life and reaches our soul through breath.
    Just as the living body has no vivacity without the blood flowing through the veins, a mantra has no life without the AUM flowing through its words. When Vedic sages practices the art of meditating upon the AUM symbol, Pranava(life) runs because of chanting and the body no longer needs food or water. This art of meditating upon the AUM symbol is called Pranava upasana. When the seeker hears the cosmic AUM sound, his heart become serene and controlled free of all fear and sufferings. In this exalted state of consciousness, one can see the glow in his body. In this stage of enlightenment, one unites with the god and attains absolute liberation.
    Effects of chanting AUM or mantras
    Aum is the only sacred word that connects the mediator directly with the divine.
    This is the oldest divine hymn that is not chanted for monetary or materialistic gain, but for the purity and liberation of the soul.
    AUM can be generalized as
    A-Aspiration to conceive god
    U- Union with God.
    M- Manifestation of God in our heart and all around us

    HOW chanting AUM connects us to god?
    Some positive energy exists around the idol which is experienced by the devotees continuously. When we chant, sound vibrations that are produced by our concentrated mind react with this positive energy and create a divine current. This current instills some of the positive energy within our body thus bringing internal peace to the mind. This effect is very similar to the magnetic effect instilled in an iron rod that was rubbed by the magnet for few minutes. We are just a small fraction of the sum total created by god. Sometimes, the mantras are chanted with yantras(instrument) which may include musical instruments like flute, sitar, bells etc. This is done to produce extremely powerful sound vibrations that can cure illness by the constant flow of positive divine energy. It is said chanting produces certain lighting figures of deities in the mind which become brighter and brighter as we advances in the various stages of self-realization.
    How mantra cures diseases?
    Since the beginning of this universe, AUM has been used as the first aid to cure diseases. If you are a believer of science and thinks that there is no way AUM sound can do anything to the soul and body, then think once again? Infrasound and ultrasound are used in the cure of many diseases.  Ultrasound frequencies above 20 KHZ are used to cure kidney stones and tumors. It is chanted as the daily dose for peaceful mind and body by spiritual aspirants.
    Though chanting of mantras has been conventionally linked only to Hinduism and its offshoot religions like Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism, it has the backing of medical science.
    Chanting AUM in meditation has received worldwide recognition. More and more yogic followers have now started chanting AUM to remove their stress and cure alimentary diseases. “Brahmvarchas Shodh Sansthan” is the leading research center on spiritual science that has carried out several experiments to study the healing of diseases by chanting mantras.

    Music, singing and dancing is good for the soul
    Listening music, singing, dancing and chanting are some of the mediums through which the one yearns for the satisfaction of the soul. Westerners heard the AUM sound for the first time in 1968 in Moody Blues Album named "In Search of the Lost Chord". People who don’t believe in the divine effect of chanting mantras should listen to this song. Additionally, have a look at Kirlean photography for more stunning information.

    Aum is the sacred syllable that represents both, personal as well as impersonal aspect of the universal Brahman (God) -the only one who is impersonal, omnipresent, omnipotent and the source of all materialistic existence. AUM is not from any language or religion. Aum is the universal symbol for people of all faith, religion and culture. Without AUM, there is no birth. Without AUM, there is no death. AUM existed, exists and will forever exist till the end of eternity. So, chant AUM to feel the effect of AUM
