Sound meditation is the art of hearing just listening doing nothing. This technique can be done in different ways but the essence of all sound meditation techniques is to develop the art of hearing with mindfulness and the awareness to hear the soundlessness.
The sound meditation technique is a very subtle science. You have to train your ear and mind feel attunement with the sound. Forget everything else. Become the sound. You have to feel harmonious with sound.
This technique can be done anywhere. Sounds are everywhere the whole universe is full of sound anywhere you will go sounds are there you may be in crowded place or in caves of Hills when you feel that it is a very peaceful place no noise to disturb there is also the sound with the low-frequency low volume you feel harmonious with it. That is why you feel good when you listen to music because music is harmonious sounds. Indian classical music consists of so many Ragas. There are different ragas for every step of time. Ragas developed for meditation. You feel calm if a sound is musical, harmonious so in Yoga have made many experiments with sound and music to develop so many meditation techniques based on sound and music.
