The universe is one verse created by sound. Both modern science and philosophies agree with this fact.
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 light (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 closely with each other. In a well balanced person, thoughts, feelings and actions would no longer move in different directions.
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 all languages.
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, causing the person to hear their individual, fundamental note (called naada).
The InnerTuning® system uses the sounds of chakras and specific mantras to open the blockages of microchakras for the integration of the three bodies.
Sri Shyamji produces these sounds for the Inner Tuning. His method of playing a unique gourd instrument called tambura, enhances the effect of soorya Aakasha (solar space) produced by his voice. These sounds facilitate the light to efficiently reach the physical body through the microchakras. This space quiets the mind and dissolves the blockages. Chanting or listening to specific recordings is an important means to open the blocked microchakras.
What is Soorya Akasha?
Akasha (the space) is the element of the fifth chakra. It is the source of speech and listening. The quality of sound will determine the quality of akasha. The human voice is capable of producing the finest quality sound, soorya Akasha. Some of the many beneficial effects are:
• Accelerates healing
• Establishes new connections among neurons
• Produces a healing effect on the immune system
• Aides integration of all three fields: causal, subtle and physical
• Reduces breathing rate
• Brings contentment to the seven chakra minds
• Integrates the left and right hemispheres of the brain
• Refines the early (reptilian and mammalian) brain
• Aides unattached observation of phenomenal world
•Stimulates opening of the sixth microchakra™of the fifth chakra, the locus of the Inner Guru
• Facilitates meditation
• Realizing the bliss of life, called Smadhi
