Several of these chants and mantras are ancient Sanskrit chants/Mantras. Sanskrit is an ancient language, is highly mathematical and scientific. It is considered one of the Oldest languages and is a Sacred language. It is considered by some linguist as the most “perfect language.” Sanskrit expands our consciousness – It is not just an academic language. It has 50 distinct sounds that are scientifically arrange to invigorate every nerve channel. Listening to Sanskrit chants energizes our body. Typically when we just listen to some clatter or talk we expel our “Prana” or life force whereas when we chant or listen to chants in Sanskrit, it redirects the “Prana” into our body, thereby leaving us reinvigorated and energized.
When chanting in Sanskrit it is extremely important to pronounce it right. Recent scientific studies have shown that proper pronunciation of Sanskrit words and mantras allows one to activate and trigger neurons in the brain and restructure the neural pathways between the brain’s two hemispheres that can lead us to higher levels of consciousness. There is an entire science of sound known as Nada Yoga in India that explores the sacred link between sound, form, and healing – something that modern scientists and physicists are just beginning to comprehend.
