A "mantra" is a repetitious chant that we are supposed to keep in in our memory. It is lately taught as an aid in
meditation. In its original discovery in India, it was supposed to be a therapy that could heal. The healing is
caused by the orchestral composition of syllables that are required to be uttered with proper breathing. We
explore examples of composition in Sanskrit and examine the breathing through proper articulation.
