Scientists published a finding a few year ago about the power of the paranasal sinus cavities. These cavities supply nitric oxide to the human body, especially when the air in the passage oscillates. Humming is a good way to get the air to oscillate in the sinus cavities. Nitric Oxide is an essential chemical for our wellbeing. This important chemical allows blood, nutrients and oxygen to be delivered efficiently all over the body. A lack of this chemical can lead to diabetes and heart diseases. Recently, a pharma company has initiated clinical trials on Nitric Oxide spray as a preventative solution for Covid-19.
Bhramari or the humming-bee breath is popular among Yogis and has been known for millennia in India.. It s a powerful technique to calm the nervous system. This breath is named after the divine mother who used the power of bees to vanquish an Asura named Aruna. This Asura had obtained a boon from Brahma, the creator, that he could not be killed by bipeds and quadrupeds. Vyasa once asked Vishnu about the nature of the divine mother as Bhramari, whose seed mantra is “Hrim”, to which Vishnu replied that her power can not be fully understood. He narrated the story of the Asura Aruna as an illustration.
Many people know the significance of the sound “Om”. Fewer people know about the sound “Hrim” which is the seed mantra of the divine mother. Om is the vibratory representation of existence and Hrim is the representation of nature’s intelligence. The divine mother can unleash the fury of nature, as illustrated by the story of Aruna. However, a Yogi can harness the power of Hrim and raise his spiritual vibrations high enough to escape the limits of the human body as imposed by nature.
