Chanting is an ancient, universal mode of spiritual expression, often accompanied with drums, rattles and bells. The word ‘chant’ is derived from the Latin word ‘cantare’ meaning to sing. The nature of chant is often with prayerful purpose. The repetition of the words or phrases serves to internalize the intention of the song and allows the mind to focus. Some chants are called ‘mantras.’ In the ancient Sanskrit language, the word mantra means mind protection. It is by repeating a sacred phrase or mantra, that the mind is focused and idle or troublesome thoughts are kept away, thus clearing the mind for divine inspiration.
