「Chanting」is a sound meditation to connect us to the most powerful divine energy in the Universe. The person who chants with purity of heart and sincerity of spirit will experience an enhanced sense of confidence and courage. It is a prayer for the past when we chant for parents and for the future when we chant for the future generations. Imagine a tree. You are the leaf or branch of the tree. The roots are your parents or ancestors. If the roots are healthy and happy, then the leaves will be green. If the roots are not happy and healthy, then no matter what you do, the leaves will never be green. Chanting is the way to help the roots heal and the leaves to be eternally green and, therefore, so will future generations. Imagine the circle of life. People often struggle to get out of a generational circle of suffering, but this is impossible without deep intercession because generations are joined together, entwined. How can anyone shine with rotten roots? Chanting gets to deeper issues that have been held for a long time. Through chanting, we can let it out and relax, and attain calmness and peace of mind.
