The Gayatri Mantra, an ancient Vedic hymn, has been recited and revered for centuries in Hinduism. The rhythmic chanting of the Gayatri Mantra is often associated with a meditative practice. Meditation has been extensively studied for its stress-reducing
effects. Engaging in mantra chanting has been shown to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, promoting a relaxation response and reducing the physiological indicators of stress.Numerous studies on meditation, including mantra meditation, have demonstrated structural changes in the brain.
Regular meditation has been associated with increased gray matter density in brain regions related to learning, memory, and emotional regulation. These changes suggest the potential for enhanced cognitive function and emotional well-being.
