The Power of
The chanting of mantras has been heard for many thousands of years, coming from the enlightened sages who compiled the Vedas. They would gather the knowledge of mantra chanting from the cosmos which is the state of heightened consciousness while in deep meditation. The mantras when chanted create vibrations that travel through the body to the inner self. It matters not if you chant the mantra incorrect or correct; you will experience the same effect of being purified and having a peaceful mind free of diseases and agitation.
The chanting of mantras creates calmness and joy to my soul and you could find me singing under a tree or in the forest where peace is assured. If you should hear me by chance then please join me. All new mantras to the site will be added at the bottom of the page.
