In Ayurveda, it is considered that each of five elements relates directly to one of the five senses. When used correctly, the sounds of Mantras can affect our state of mind as well as overall emotional health. Sounds can have a balancing effect on the three doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The mantra is a positive sound that reminds a person of the Highest self. They are typically used in Meditation as a power to harness the mind. They are specific sounds or vibrations, when chanted aloud or repeated silently, they can create a desired effect for healing, transformation or inner awakening.
