How does mantra meditation work?
We need to understand that Mantras are energy based sounds. The human body is essentially made up of multiple energies and therefore it’s resonates with the vibrations or frequency produced in sound. At the center of human are energy vortexes called Chakras through which the energy flows. Tensions and stress block the flow of energy causing more stress and disease. Mantra with the use of these powerful sounds helps this energy to unblock the Chakras restoring the flow and brings back balance in the body and general well being.
