Beauty chant...


"Mananaat traayate iti mantrah"
(That which uplifts by constant repetition is a Mantra.)

Chant (from French chanter[1]) is the rhythmic speaking or singing of words or sounds, often primarily on one or two pitches called reciting tones

Sound Is Power
I firmly believe that the sound of Mantra can lift the believer towards the higher self. These sound elements of Sanskrit language are permanent entities and are of everlasting significance. In the recitation of Sanskrit Mantras the sound is very important, for it can bring transformation in you while leading you to power and strength.
Different sounds have different effects on human psyche. If a soft sound of wind rustling through leaves soothes our nerves, the musical note of running stream enchants our heart, thunders may cause awe and fear.
The sacred utterances or chanting of Sanskrit Mantras provide us with the power to attain our goals and lift ourselves from the ordinary to the higher level of consciousness. They give us the power to cure diseases; ward off evils; gain wealth; acquire supernatural powers; worship a deity for exalted communion and for attaining blissful state and attain liberation.



While this chant is borrowed from the Navajo tradition, similar chants and prayers are found in many other indigenous cultures. The Beauty Chant can be a lovely daily morning prayer: its simple yet powerful words will help you become stronger and more present in your body. It can also be sung or stated any time of the day as a reminder of the beauty that surrounds us all and is within each of us, all the time.
You may use this chant when you are feeling negative–or when you are brimming over with the beauty of the world! It will help to lift you up and bring you back to a more positive and strong place, or help you to express your appreciation of beauty. It is also a powerful reminder that you can be beautiful just as you are. Say the chant here:
Beauty before me.
Beauty behind me.
Beauty below me.
Beauty above me.
Beauty beside me.
Beauty within me.
I see beauty all around.
In beauty may I walk.
In beauty may I see.
In beauty may we all be.
