Someone asked if we could chant the 6-Syllable Mantra quietly. Does the way we chant affect the result?

Good question. When it comes to chanting, there are 3 ways.

The first is to chant silently, in the mind. There is no sound because your mouth doesn’t move. We chant in our heart while listening to the recording. Our mouths don’t move so there’s no sound. This is one way. You will still gain results.

To gain greater blessings or better health, it is best to chant with sound. You will gain much greater results. You can chant aloud or softly. Chanting the “Bodhisattva Chant”, only you can hear your voice. You will gain results as well.

But still, chanting aloud gives you the best results. Chanting aloud is known as the “Vajra Chant”. This gives the best results.

So, take note of these 3 methods. You are free to choose, but the best method is to chant aloud.

The “Vajra Chant”, or chanting aloud, gives you the best results.
