Benefits Of Chanting The Powerful “OM” Mantra

 

Everyone wants to be Blissful and Happy. This desire lies at the very core of our inner being because our true nature is ever-blissful. Conditions and situations in this material/physical world give rise to negative feelings in us, like anger, fear, anxiety, stress, hatred etc. These negative feelings make us forget our true blissful nature. Chanting and the meditation of ‘Om’ (Aum) is a proven way to reach and stay in that ever-blissful nature. Om is considered to be one of the most important sounds in all the universe and has been chanted for thousands of years. It’s believed continuous practice leads to profound enlightenment. But there are more than just a few benefits to this powerful, ancient practice…there are many that affect us and our environment in different ways.
