Chanting OM (AUM), or any other chosen mantra, for 5 minutes or more has a direct beneficial effect on your physiology, which in turn, also positively impacts your psychological state and overall wellbeing.
Japa mantra recitation directly works to tone and strengthen your Vagus nerve, which plays an essential role in regulating your mood, speech, digestion, anti-inflammatory response, heart rate, and many other key functions in your body.
On your road to Self-Realization, continued Japa practice, directly and indirectly, works to create the harmonious and peaceful internal environment that is needed to better connect with higher states of consciousness in more ways than one. It is highly recommended that if you do not already participate in a persona Japa routine, that you start, even a short one, today.
Remember to always make your Japa practice personal, and uniquely catered, to you. This will not only ensure that you are more likely to stick to your routine for the required time needed to accomplish your goal of either Purascharna or Mahapurascharna, but also ensures that you reap the maximum benefits from your recitations as well.
Your Japa practice should be something that you look forward to doing each day.
Once you get started with a routine that is ideal for you, nothing will stop you from easily sticking with your routine (and practicing each and every single day moving forward until you reach your goal) because you will simply desire the benefits of your recitations on multiple levels without having to be pushed from an external source.
Once no external push is required, you will know that you have found the right mantra and flow for you. Keep practicing and refining your Japa routine if you have not found your optimal flow as of yet, and please note that you can always make adjustments to your Japa routine along the way as you continue to move forward.
