Modern scientific experiments have confirmed that the japa regulates the reciter’s respiration

Nama Article 27th May 2008
 

Modern scientific experiments have confirmed that the japa regulates the reciter's respiration in a way similar to that offered by some of the exercises of pranayamas. It reduces the breathing rate to half its normal average.

 

That means, on an average, one hour's disciplined practice of the japa yoga would augment the life of the sadhaka by about five hundred breaths at least! Japa therefore could also be advised as an important health-exercise.

 

As mentioned earlier, the effects of japa awaken one's inherent virtues that naturally result in an overall improvement in his personality, and amelioration of his physical and mental potentials. These positive effects can be used for noble success in terms of worldly progress as well.

 

It is the willpower and the vision, aroused by the japa that 'transform' the difficult circumstances and obstacles into minor ones in a miraculous manner.

All mantras we use are based on the science of "Naadam" — the secrets hidden in sound

Nama Article 13th April 2008
 

We all use mantras or words all day long — repetitive, out loud, or silently — phrases such as "It's hard," or "I'm tired." "I don't know what I'm doing," "It will never happen … .. I'm stressed," "There's not enough time," or "There's not enough money." We don't even notice them becoming part of our reality by repetition. We act out on what we say, live on how we think. If our mantra is, "I am stressed," we will be stressed. Or if our mantra is, "It's never going to happen, " it's never going to happen.

 

In the beginning was the word, and the word was God. So powerful are our words to ourselves and to others and the power of positive thinking and expressions of positive thinking through words are very important.


The words in manthras are chosen not only for their meaning as words, but also for a scientific reason that goes far beyond pure definition. All mantras we use are based on the science of "Naadam" — the secrets hidden in sound.


The roof of our mouth has eighty-four meridian points, all along the upper palate. Mantras were given to us as special gifts. Long ago, highly evolved Rishis went into deep meditation. They began reciting certain sounds that made the tongue hit these meridian points in the mouth in certain combinations.


It's kind of like playing the piano — if certain notes are struck, a beautiful song is produced. With every word we speak, or in this case the mantras we recite, we hit certain "keys." If the right combination of keys is struck, then the hypothalamus, thalamus, and pituitary in the brain are all stimulated in such a way as to bring our minds into a meditative state, and even into ecstasy.

Which ever combination of letters gave the ancient seers this peaceful feeling or helped them heal their ailments, they passed it on to us. Every single manthram in the vedas are the results of their experience. Nothing is accidental.
