    Someone posted the following in a mailing list on Art of Living yoga invitation message. Most of the audience of this mailing list are people highly educated and working in hi-tech jobs. Wonder how low we can stretch placebo to play people's mind.

    Yoga of Sound
    Chanting allows all other senses to dissolve into one, and allows the mind to sink into itself. Chanting can be considered as the Yoga of sound.
    Sanskrit chants in particular have a very profound effect on the consciousness.
    Each Sanskrit letter has a sound, which relates to a specific subtle energy centre (chakra) in our subtle bodies. Sanskrit chanting activates subtle energy centres, which produce a soothing, purifying and energizing effect.
