The Gayatri Mantra
Students are welcome to join in the Gayatri Mantra that Umang chants at the end of each class to create wonderfully calming, peaceful and therapeutic vibrations in the surroundings that one can soak into every cell of ones being even without chanting. It has absolutely nothing to do with religion and so is the case with A-U-M vibrations.
Let me draw an analogy for you:
Imagine a guitar in the hands of someone who has no idea what a guitar is. What happens? The guitar is strung and a disharmonious, jarring sound and vibrations are produced! That is what happens to a mind-body in a constant chaotic and toxic state! But when the vibrations of this chanting soaks in, it created harmony in the being just like the same guitar in the hands of a musician creates melody!
