It is believed that Om is the first sound that emerged from the vibrations of the cosmic energy that created the universe. Chanting Om helps one to remember enlightenment by realizing delusions of the ego and separate self. When we come together to share voice, our mood goes up, and heartbeats synchronize within the group strengthening our bond. When the Om Mantra is chanted in a group, the effects are amplified and this will produce immense positive vibrations which charge up the participant and the entire vicinity. The vibration and sound created by chanting Om is felt in the entire body strengthening vocal cords and the muscles along the spinal column, as well as decrease in blood pressure leaving the practitioner feeling calm and focused.
