Since time immemorial, there has been a belief that sacred words and their combinations called Mantras have beneficial effects on human beings, animals and even plant kingdom. This belief has been so widespread that practically every scripture refers to it in same way or other.
Recently, some investigations have been carried out on the effect of chanting of Agnihotra Mantra at sunrise and sunset, accompanied by sacrificial fire, on the germination of rice seeds.

It is known from scriptures that Mantras like OM, Agnihotra Mantra, Gayatri Mantra have benefited humanity to large extent. However, it is very difficult to pinpoint what precisely there is in these Mantras which make them so effective.
OM doesn’t have a translation. Therefore, the Hindus consider it as the very name of the Absolute, it is body of sound. In the scriptures of ancient India, the OM is considered the powerful of all the Mantras.

Vedic Mythology of Solar Eclipse and its Scientific Validation

Rig Veda, the oldest one among the four Vedas, pronounces the phenomenon of solar eclipse in a mythical language. During the eclipse, the eclipse induced gravity waves causes a reduction in ozone layer concentration in stratosphere which allows more cosmic radiations of different wavelengths, to the surface of the earth. The research carried out about the radiations received during the past eclipses and its influence on seawater reveal the scientific knowledge behind Rishi Atri’s dispelling of darkness by the Four Rigs, given in Pancavisma Brahmana. Hence, for the first time, the eclipse event is differentiated into a four stage process, as per out recent findings on the change in Oceanic PH. The influence of solar eclipse on living organisms, especially, the erratic of solar eclipse on living organisms, especially, the erratic behavior of animals, birds and marine organisms to eclipse is addressed. This new scientific findings supports strongly the Vedic predictions of eclipse and the traditional practices of Hindus, which differ from region to region.
