Episode 51: The Power of Mantras to fight CoronaVirus a Increase immunity
The Health Tips Podcast IS about Health a Fitness. But beyond that, its about “Fitting in Fitness”. You probably know everything there is to know about being healthy : Eat Right, Sleep Right, Exercise, keep your weight in the range. And stay off depression. This episode comes to you, as we endure a state of lockdown in the times of the Corona. I thought it might be appropriate to bring you something on Mantras. For those of you who are not acquainted with the concept of Mantras – they are essentially sound vibrations. Which seem to have impact. The earliest mantras were composed in Vedic Sanskrit in India, and are at least 3000 years old. Mantras now exist in various schools of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism Mantras come in many forms, including ṛc (verses from the Rigveda for example) and sāman (musical chants from the Sāmaveda for example). They are typically melodic, mathematically structured meters, believed to be resonant with numinous qualities. At its simplest, the word ॐ (Aum, Om) serves as a mantra. In more sophisticated forms, mantras are melodic phrases with spiritual interpretations such as a human longing for truth, reality, light, immortality, peace, love, knowledge, and action So I bring you a talk by Swami Uttamananda in Rishikesh, one of the very learned gurus – to talk about Mantras, their origin and how to chant them. Please note – the sound may be slightly poor in certain sections – but stay till the end – its very interesting and a great learning. If you liked what you heard – Id love you to do something.
