Can A Mantra Or Sound Be Used As A Medicine?

(An interesting article by Padmashri & Dr B C Roy National Awardee Dr KK Agarwal in his website, on scientific explanation of benefits of chanting Mantra )

The answer is yes. The difference between a Mantra and a sound is that Mantra sound is an energized sound with medicinal values. There are many aspects of Mantra as a sound:1.      The type of sound matters. It is a well known that chanting of vowel sounds produces interleukin 2 in the body which has the same action as that of aspirin and works like a natural pain killer. Chanting of nasal consonants produces delta activity in the EEG and has similar action like tranquilizers. Chanting of other consonants has different actions in the body for example chanting of LUM reduces fear, VUM reduces attachments, RUM reduces doubt, YUM increases love, HUM increases truthfulness and AUM non-judgmental activities.
