The sound syllable that constitutes the mantra is highly potent and is effective enough to energize the human system both spiritually and physically.

Thus the two hemispheres of the cerebral cortex are influenced by the Neuro motor response which is driven by the sympathetic response. The actual base of the mantra according to Upanishads was the 'Parma Akesh' or ancient, the eternal and underlying substratum of the universe. When mantras are chanted it usually influences the left

hemisphere of the brain and the intonation and the melody of the mantras results in enhancing the positive vibrations and thereby removing the negative vibrations from the person. The result is more powerful and the effect is more on the emotions when the mantra is chanted along with a Yantra or a picture of a deity which gives a clear visual image of the goal or attainment of Bhakthi.
