The Meaning of Mantras

Yoga

Yoga is often thought as performing acrobatic knots with the body. One who knows more about it is aware that yoga stands for physical exercises (Asanas), breathing exercises (Pranayama) and relaxation; some know that meditation is also part of yoga. Few know that Mantra chanting belongs to this category. 

By frequently repeating the word, mainly in Sanskrit, one can reach a meditative state. The words carry the positive energy. Through repeated reciting the positive energy will eventually overcome the negative energy. An old technique that modern brain research has been employing in the last few years.


Sanskrit

The language of Gods, is the oldest language of human beings. The sound of the words lets the positive energy flow and the music carries and compliments the rhythm of the words. In Eastern philosophy Mantra chanting is a practiced ritual to calm the mind, to release emotional tension and enable a true state of meditation: the popularity of meditation has spread over the Western hemisphere during the last few years. But the chanting of the Sanskrit words is still foreign to the Western ear.
