Mantras can be highly beneficial for your brain. The primary effect of chanting mantras is on our mind and nervous system, not on the brain. Certain brain parts activated when we recite mantras. Mantras give peace of mind.
When you chant mantras your mind releases the positive energy that decreases the negative thoughts or stress. Chanting mantras is an ancient practice that calms your mind and soul. Chanting mantras like AUM or OM for 10 minutes can decrease anxiety and depressive symptoms in the human body.
AUM or OM is the most universal mantra. For its simplicity and specific sound, it is considered to be the sound of the universe. It represents the original vibration, the cycle of life – the birth and death.
