Yuh know meditation does wonders. The New Age ppl wholeheartedly believe in the stuff. Once, I listened to the Zoarastorians chants, did not understand a word but I felt something. I quickly snapped out of it, I suspect my mind was journeying into a strange place. Then reminded what the Bible seys about such things.
Bai, with all the craziness in the world nowadays, any kind of calm is worth the while. Just like how I like those Hindu mantras. You don't have to believe them to benefit from them.
