A living cell of every plant and animal has a nucleus and it contains the essence of our existence – chromosomes. A chromosome is made of protein and a single molecule of deoxyribonucleic acid, commonly known as DNA. It is a thread-like structure that has a protective nucleotide sequence called Telomere that protects the chromosome from deterioration. In simple language, faster the deterioration of DNA, faster you will get old. Chanting of “Om Namah Shivay” in meditation grows the length of Telomere thereby delaying the ageing process.
Our Vedas and scriptures talk about sages that lived very long. The secret lies in Telomere and keeping it long and tight at the ends of chromosomes to keep the ageing process at a distance. Long-life has been a topic of discussion since very long and many people perished looking for it outside, but it was right there, inside us. Meditation with Om “Namah Shivay” might be the elixir we have been looking for.
