The Ancient Power Of Chanting Mantra Validated By Modern Science:

Posted on June 23, 2017

Connecting the spiritual to the scientific seems to be a trend in today’s world, with people yearning for proof before trusting in certain practices. 

The method of chanting (mantra) is ancient, and long before science could support it, it was used to heal and ignite the higher self. Today, science has given us the ability to connect in a whole new way to this technology.

Whether chanting correctly or incorrectly, knowingly or unknowingly, carefully or carelessly, chanting has been touted as a useful tool for physical and mental well-being.

Virtually no tradition, no culture, is void of chanting for some form of spiritual or health practice. Recitation of prayers, in Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, Islamic, and Hebrew traditions, often serves as a means to either invoke Divine entities or heal people. More interest in the present day has arisen from this age-old practice, with people interested in the use of chanting for health and wellness.

There are various sciences behind mantric chanting. “Some of these are the ‘hard’ science—physics, psychoacoustics, etc.,” says Jonathan Goldman, an American author, musician, and teacher in the fields of Harmonics and Sound Healing. “Some of these are spiritual sciences such as the different yogic practices that work with sound.”

Years ago, Dr. Herbert Benson, professor, author, cardiologist, and founder of Harvard’s Mind/Body Medical Institute, observed how mantric chanting can help induce the Relaxation Response. The response is defined as the individual’s ability to prompt their body to release chemicals and brain signals that cause muscles to relax, respiration to slow, and blood pressure to drop.
