Sanskrit – The effect in your brain

November 17, 2022

Sanskrit is one of the oldest languages in the world? And not only is it old, but it’s also incredibly complex. Sanskrit is so complex that it’s often used as a source of inspiration for artificial intelligence research. But what does this have to do with your brain? As it turns out, a lot!
 
It has been shown to improve cognitive function and memory recall. One study found that people who learn Sanskrit have increased activity in the language areas of their brains. This shouldn’t be surprising, given the fact that it is an incredibly complex language. But what does this mean for you? Well, if you’re looking for a way to boost your brainpower, learning the language may be a good option for you.
 
In addition to improving cognitive function, Sanskrit has also been shown to reduce stress levels. One study found that people who read texts in this language had lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol than those who read English texts. So, if you’re looking for a way to relax and de-stress, reading Sanskrit may be a good option for you.
 
Finally, it has also been shown to improve sleep quality. One study found that people who listened to recordings of Sanskrit mantras had better sleep quality than those who listened to recordings of English words. So, if you’re looking for a way to get better sleep, listening to Sanskrit mantras may be a good option for you.
 
Growing up, we were taught to scoff at people who listened to chants or mantras. They were the ignorant uneducated lot, or so we were told. Speaking polished English made you literate. It takes unlearning to realise that the world is not contained in your pond. The ocean is a bigger place. Make Sanskrit a part of that ocean.
