The knowledge of how to use sound, frequency, melody, rhythm and language as meditation in order to raise one's consciousness is called Naad Yoga, the Yoga of Sound. Naad, or the essence of sound, cannot be described but only experienced deep within. One can attempt to describe it but will ultimately fail. How can we describe in mere words something as vast as the creation, and as infinite as the pure consciousness and force behind that creation?
What we can do is look to the teachings of those who have come before and practice the techniques and meditations that they have shared. I can guarantee that if you practice you will experience. What you do with that experience will be up to you.
Although nearly every spiritual discipline uses sound in some way to raise the consciousness of the practitioner, these particular teachings emanate from science based on ancient yogic teachings of Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan and the masters of the sound current, the Sikh Gurus.
Although I am not by any stretch of the imagination a scientist, I enjoy studying human biology, neuro-science and quantum physics, and my intent is to share some knowledge from these studies in the Book Blog, where it pertains to and confirms the teachings of Naad Yoga.
The Naad Yoga Book Blog will feature posts I write, transcribed portions of lectures that I have given, and any other related material that I find inspiring. Over time I aim to mold this material into my book-in-progress, Naad Yoga: The Yoga of Sound Workbook, so that I can continue to share the teachings with all who feel compelled to read, listen and practice.
