When you chant Sa Ta Na Ma, the upper palate is struck and vibrational energy is relayed to the hypothalamus. The effect of the movement of the tongue, coupled with the sound waves resonating in the brain, stimulates the hypothalamus to secrete all the necessary hormones, neurotransmitters and peptides that can speak the brain’s own language. Basically, your internal body systems have a dialogue with themselves, which causes them spontaneously to begin to ‘right’ whatever is wrong within your internal make up.
