Understanding MSRT Meditation:

In today’s busy lifestyle, finding moments of inner peace and emotional balance can feel like an uphill battle. That combined with the ever-present struggle of modern life further increases stress levels. People search for different techniques to mitigate stress but only a few can find effective ones. Well, look no further, as in this blog, we shall discuss a technique that will help you manage stress easily.

Mind Sound Resonance Technique (MSRT) is a specific yoga practice that focuses on calming the mind and body. It’s also designed to build emotional strength and self-regulation. The major difference that this form of meditation has with other forms is that it emphasizes on mindful awareness and self-regulation strategies. This meditation is developed through decades of research and clinical experience.

In addition, MSRT meditation draws influence from the principles of cognitive-behavioral therapy, neuroscience, and mindfulness. It’s a comprehensive and evidence-based approach to managing stress and building emotional strength.

Major aspects of MSRT involve:

• Loud and silent chanting of AUM (Aa, Uu, Mm)
• Chanting the maha mrityunjaya mantra
• Mental chanting of AUM of OM 9 times
• Establishing a strong mental resolve and repeating it 9 times
