Mantras are ancient sounds that are charged with positive vibrations. When a mantra is chanted, sound vibrations are generated which are very beneficial to the listener and the environment.

Here’s how:

  • It brings forth all the positive energy inside you.
  • It helps to consolidate and strengthen the power of the mind.
  • It creates an armor around your body. (That is why it is called mantra kavach).
  • It transform negative, repulsive vibrations into more positive vibrations.
  • It harmonizes the environment and surroundings.

Don’t believe? Try this for yourself

Can you remember a time when someone abused you verbally? How did you feel? What did it do to you?

It’s likely that you didn’t like it too much. It shook you. Verbal abuse creates some negative vibrations, causing anger, hurt or irritation to the receiver. Since the body-mind complex is connected, there is an effect in your body as well, ranging from some sensations in the pit of your stomach or in the head.

Protip: Sometimes you meet some people and you feel like talking to them. You get good vibes from them. Sometimes you meet people and you want to avoid them. Do you know why? The negative vibes around a person make them repulsive. Mantras turn around these negative, repulsive vibrations into more positive and attractive vibrations. This is the advantage of mantra chanting.

This Navratri, be different: Listen to ancient mantras and observe your day. There are many chants that you can listen to daily such as the Lalitha Sahasrama, Devi Kavacham and Argala Stotram.

In addition, meditate on the mantras from the Navratri yagyas. You can attend the pujas at Art of Living centers closest to you.
