Nada Yoga & Mantras

See Video here

Human beings exist in three fields: The physical field (connected with the subcortical brain) gives us sensations and the impression that we are this physical body. The subtle field (connected with the right hemisphere gives us the impression that we have feelings. The causal field (connected with the left hemisphere) causes us to think.

In addition, our subtle body contains 7 spinning wheels of energy (chakras) which are distributed along the length of the spine. These chakras function as minds, which process the information and experiences we have on a daily basis. Our spiritual development requires that our three bodies become more integrated; that is, share information and work more and more closely with each other. For example, thoughts, feelings and actions would no longer move in different directions. Mantras and InnerTuning® sounds to balance the microchakras™ are both tools for gradually bringing about the integration of the three bodies. They do this by releasing specific gestalts (patterns) of energy, which are latent in all three bodies.

The sounds for InnerTuning are produced by Sri Shyamji Bhatnagar through vocalizations or sustained tones from a stringed instrument of ancient origin (tambura). These sounds maximize the flow of energy to the chakras and produce Soorya Akasha (ethereal space). This space quiets the mind and dissolves the blockages. Chanting oneself or listening to specific InnerTuning©recordings is an important means to energize and balance the microchakras.

SUGGESTIONS FOR OPTIUMUM EFFECTS

InnerTuning® sounds are subtle yet powerful. Adhering to prerequisites ensures best results.

-Have a bowel movement as early as possible (best before dawn) and follow with a shower.-Wearing clean clothing, sit facing east.
-Play the mantra at a low volume
-Listen to the mantra for forty consecutive days. After forty days of learning the mantra, chant along.
-While chanting, breathe through the nose only. This will supply the purest prana to the mantra and will enhance its effectiveness.
-After the recording finishes, continue sitting quietly for a few minutes.

These sounds are to internalize the senses and should not be played for entertainment.

*If these prerequisites cannot be met initially, listen to this mantra when your stomach is empty. Keep your eyes open and fixed downward at a single point.

PRINCIPLES OF NAADA

-Breathe through the nose for tuning into the 5th, 6th and 7th chakra energies.
-Allow space between mantras for soorya aakasha to be absorbed by the 7th chakra.
-Chant along to benefit the 3rd microchakras in the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th chakras.

According to the ancient Indian metaphysics of sound, eternal wisdom (richas) reverberates subtly and eternally throughout the cosmos. In the current epoch, before recorded history, they were first heard by unusually gifted seers called rishis. This wisdom was passed orally from generation to generation by means of strict methods of recitation designed to preserve its purity. These richas were later called mantras.

In the Tantric tradition, chakras are symbolized as lotus flowers with differing numbers of petals (52 in all). The petals exude sounds (matrikas-little mothers) which were heard by the ancient seers (rishis).

The 52 matrikas form the root of the ancient language of Samskrta (Sanskrit) and the base of most other languages on Earth.

Mantras are combinations of matrikas. To be effective, mantras must be given precise pronunciation and intonation as well as great devotion. They are invocations of latent potential energy. Mantra literally means “that which liberates the mind” from false identities. After this expansion, a contraction takes place which brings the three bodies into close alignment.
