The wonderful process of mantra meditation, especially when practiced congregationally, has a purifying effect on the consciousness--not only on the part of the individual performing it but on those living beings in other species who are hearing it as well. By the process of mantra meditation, a human being can simultaneously uplift the consciousness of themselves and living beings in other species of life.
In the Vedic shastra it is clearly declared that the power of the transcendental mantras is such that it has a purifying effect on all species of life. The living beings that are in bird bodies and dog bodies and so on are greatly benefited by hearing these transcendental sounds. And sometimes you will find that they chant in their own way; when you sing, they reply but in their own way according to their own vocal chords.
