From years of teaching experience, I notice there are some people who shun mantra chanting during yoga classes or meditation due to a lack of understanding of the science behind mantra or the wrong conditioning of fear. They do not understand the true power of science of sound. My intention in this article is to help shed more light to the non-believers and laymen.
More than 5,000 years ago, there was a time in Vedic civilization near the Ganges river of India, the use of sound technology was common in human’s daily life such as watching moving images in communion with Divine, flying an ‘aircraft’, building weapons for war, communicating with animals, breaking objects like stone etc. Just by producing certain sound vibrations, the civilization was able to lead a very sophisticated lifestyle by playing with sound and Nature. On planet earth, there are 2 traditions: 1) light -based tradition or 2) sound-based tradition i.e. the use of light particles vs. the sound particles. In the Eastern civilization, they use the sound particles to win the cosmos while the Western civilisation, they use the light particles to win over nature. In earlier period of Vedic tradition, everything was done through the sound particles. The Vedic masters were able to summon Sun and Moon and any energy just by sound and achieved whatever they needed to accomplish on the earthly plane! To them, everything is possible by creating the right sound vibrations through mantras! Unfortunately, the mass destruction of this sacred science of sound happened during the Mahabharata War and a few natural calamities, hence this powerful science of handling sound and playing with extraordinary things did not get transmitted to future generations. This is a great loss to humanity.
