Shlokas and their benefits
The word Shloka means ‘song’ and originates from the root word ‘sru’ which means ‘hear’.
Shlokas which have its origins from the Vedic Period, aid concentration in meditation. We have used the science of sound for centuries to communicate with the divine spirit and the universe. This helps in creating a calm and more relaxed atmosphere which in turn allows the person to channelize the positive energy received in a variety of ways.
Researchers have found out that chanting, either done alone or in a group, have profound benefits by indirectly keeping the mind alert and sharpening the intellect. The brain requires more oxygen than any other organ in the body and for it to function efficiently an adequate amount of oxygen is essential. Since chanting of shlokas is accompanied by systematic rhythmic deep breathing it brings in an added supply of oxygen and helps in releasing beneficial endorphins, which act as a pain reliever in the body, and boosts the natural metabolic process of the body. Chanting shlokas everyday helps in controlling and managing stress levels in the body along with lowering blood pressure, normalizing adrenalin levels, and even reducing high cholesterol levels. However, shloka chanting should be done in a melodious and regular pattern and never in a harsh or hurried fashion, otherwise it doesn’t prove to be effective.
Chanting shlokas daily is sure to bring immense benefits to the mind, body, and soul. By adopting this healthy, spiritual, and most importantly, highly beneficial technique, you can bring about positive changes in your life.
