Mantras are ways of using sound vibrations to affect consciousness and receive the benefits of peace of mind. All Mantras are powerful in their own right. The Gayatri Mantra is specifically viewed as one of the most important of all Vedic Mantras. But why is Gayatri so special and so powerful?
The most fundamental answer has to do with light itself, which the Gayatri mantra is invoking. Light is an important element because of the power it was over darkness. Darkness does not exist in the presence of direct light…this is a basic fact.
Gayatri Mantra is about bringing light into the mind to dispel darkness, which is to say negative energy fields and unconscious patterns. Light is a metaphor for awareness and shining light (awareness) on the darkness (unconscious patterns and things that hold us back in life) is the intention of Meditation and the key technique to self-realization.
Mantras are mystic syllables, that when pronounced right can alter one’s physical and psychological states through their frequencies.
Also, Mantra chanting can promote the synchronizing of cardio-vascular rhythms, an increase in baroreflex sensitivity, a reduction in skin resistance, limbic deactivation, brain activation in key areas like the pre-frontal cortex. Mantras can have a positive influence not just on humans but also on plants!
Neuroscientists conducted a study testing the effects on the brain caused by Gayatri Mantra chanting.
This test used Electroencephalograph (EEG) and Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) to measure these effects.
Subjects who are novices in the field of meditative practices were made to listen to Gayatri mantra chants for 15 minutes. This EEG test found that post-Gayatri mantra chants for 15 minutes, the percentage of gamma/beta brain waves of subjects, increased than before.
An increase in gamma brain waves indicates a high level of conscious awareness while an increase in beta waves indicates a more alert state of mind.
This fMRI test found that various areas of the brain were activated during Gayatri Mantra chanting. The most relevant of these was the right insula, which involves bodily self-awareness and emotional experience.
In conclusion, The results showed that chanting the Gayatri mantra had maximum brain activation in the bilateral superior temporal gyri, right temporal lobe, right insula, left inferior parietal lobule, lateral globuspallidus, and culmen of the cerebellum. The entire brain becomes alive.
