The science of listening is the second limb of Naad Yoga. To talk about listening, we must talk about the physical universe on a quantum level; in other words, the sub-atomic level of existence.

The Science of Chanting

"Your real strength is not in your muscles. Your real strength is in your chemical communication system of the brain. The brain does not connect only through nerve pathways; there are chemical solutions that communicate between the different areas of the brain, which gives us our ability. This was known to the yogis before 1000 BC. They could look into the areas of the body and view its strength, flow and projection. The yogis developed a science to adjust and circulate the chemicals of the brain.
