Chandrashekharendra Sarasawti Swami on the Greatness of Vedic Chanting

Vedic chanting is a mantrayoga…when we vocalize a syllable, the vital breath is discharged through the space intervening our throat, tongue, lips, the upper and lower parts of the mouth, etc. It is then that the syllable is voiced or the akshara-dhwani produced.

Vibrations are created in those parts of the body where the vital breath courses through as a consequence of the akshara-dhwani.

Chanting of Vedic Mantras means only voicing such syllables as would cause beneficent vibrations that would produce such mental states as would lead to wellbeing in this world and the hereafter and ultimately liberation. No other type of vibration is caused by the chanting of the mantras.
