When we chant we go deeper into ourselves, to our presence, to the now, to the awareness. We let ourselves to flow in the waves and vibrations of the mantras, and we go deeper and deeper. When we chant, our feeling, our state of being changes, and thoughts and tendencies calm down. And we experience the gunas, the three states, tamas, rajas, and finally we settle in sattva guna, a beautiful luminous state of being.
