How to benefit most from chanting AUMOn October 7, 2017 by Inner Flame
To chant AUM right and benefit the most, one has to understand the meaning of AUM.
There is nothing spiritual or Indian about AUM. Anything that is sound and vibration is very human.
The sound of AUM creates internal vibration like any sound. But then it is the only sound that carries the vibration all through the body in one breath.
The sound of AUM which is made of ‘Aaaaaa’ triggers the vibration at the base of our spine (mooladara) and the sound ‘Uuuuuu’ carries the vibration upwards to the heart and throat it ends with a hum ‘Mmmmm’ that takes the vibrates to the head.
The reason chanting AUM relaxes our brain is because it ends with a hum and humming produces more nasal nitric oxide. (You may google the benefit of humming).
You can now see it is very science and not Indian.
- Vibration – Physics
- Cellular change – Biology
- Chemical reaction – Chemistry
