Health benefits of chanting Aum
Aum is the primordial vibration.It was the first to originate. Aum is most sacred sound in our Sanatan Dharma. But it is more universal than we accept as of now.
Swami Yogananda’s Guru Shri Yukteshwarnath ji has referred to it as the ‘Word’ which is mentioned in Bible too. There is a verse in Bible :
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
Shri Yukteshwarnath ji said: “This verse of Bible can be only understood by the AUM mentioned in Vedas .” When the formless wanted to create the universe, first Word AUM appeared. This is the same word which is implied in Bible too.
Some may agree and some may not with above statement. Nonetheless, the scared sound AUM has is always reverberating in cosmos in perpetual unison in everything. Every particle of creation is singing the sacred sound at very subtle level . Yogis hear this sound in deep meditation .
Such profound sound does not have only spiritual benefits, but it has many physical benefits too.
AUM is made up of three characters.
A, U & M.
“A” means to be born,
“U” means the rise, flying, i.e. development,
“M” means to become silence, that is to say “to become one with universe (Brahmaleen)”
AUM is the origin of the entire universe and the sign of the whole creation.Universe starts with AUM and ends with AUM. Know How to pronounce healthier and adopt the way to the health …

Pronounce AUM in deep resonating prolonnged voice like :
The sound of M has to be prolonged a little bit more than A and U. This helps you connect with your inner self.
You can pronounce it 5, 7, 10, 21 times as your time permits. The more you do better it is. 108ntime daily will be great.
You can start it loudly and slowly as you wish . Once you start doing it you will find your rhythm soon, mostly it ends in moderate deep resonating soothing voice.
