“Sound vibration is within all of us and is the essence of creation itself.
In Kundalini Yoga, naad yoga “the yoga of sound”, is used as part of the process to create a chemical change within the brain.
Mantra is defined as “the creative projection of the mind through sound. Man = mind and Trang = wave or projection. The science of mantra is based on the knowledge that sound is a form of energy having structure, power and a definite predictable effect on the chakras and the human psyche.
Mantras are formulas that alter the patterns of the mind and the chemistry of the brain, according to physical and metaphysical laws. The power of a mantra is in its sound vibration. The mantras used in Kundalini Yoga elevate or modify consciousness through their meaning and rhythmical repetition. It is beneficial to link a mantra to the breath.
It’s a powerful experience that creates a beautiful effect and expands our level of connectedness. Most people take yoga classes and don’t truly understand the power of the word within us. Better yet, that our own voice has miraculous healing powers within our own bodies.
It’s part of the process to change something within us. “Chanting mantras either silently or out loud, is a conscious method of controlling and directing the mind. Happiness, sorrow, joy and regret are vibratory frequencies in the mind. Call them attitudes, or beliefs, but fundamentally, they are vibratory frequencies or thought waves. They determine the kind of program our mind plays. The scenario we choose becomes our vibration, defines how we feel and what we project to others.” P. 66.
Experiencing mantra and Kundalini Yoga gives you a radiant and elevated natural high. That was why Yogi Bhajan touched so many lives at Woodstock. Come and experience it for yourself and allow the experience of pure Love to guide you in your journey.”
