Sound Meditation technique to hear the soundlessness

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.

There are two stages of  30 minutes each-

Try to hear the sounds all around you-

Be aware of dreams during sleep

Sleep has very important place in our life.A man sleeps almost 8 hrs daily so something happens in our sleep without that you can’t live more in a natural way. S o you have to focus on your sleep and dreams.You have to be aware of your dreams during sleep.This is one type of mindfulness meditation technique but it is not easy to go to sleep with awareness because you are not even aware when you are in the awakening state.You are doing so many works in your day to day life without awakening in a robotic way so start with your awakening state

Be aware of body movement or do it with full mindfulness

While you are awake be aware of your body movement when you are walking in garden be aware of it do it with mindfulness when you are doing exercise in gym be aware or eating bathing whatsoever you are doing be aware or be mindful but start with that type of works which need less attention or less intellectual efforts don’t practise it while you are studying or doing your official work.Practice it with walking eating relaxing etc.

Be aware of your dreams

when you are going to sleep some thoughts are passing at your mind. You have to be aware of  that thoughts because those thoughts are pioneer of your dreams that are the starting point of  your dreams be aware of it but it in an easy way not be tensed and not excessive effort to do it otherwise you will not go to sleep try it daily before sleep and one night that will happen that dreams are going on and you are watching them like a film is going on and you are aware of it and when you will be aware of your dreams you will see that dreams are disappearing and you are in deep sleep and in the morning you will feel more energetic more enthusiastic more joyous and a hypnotic charming glow will last on your face and others will also feel it

        sleep-330869_1920Be aware during sleep

Maharishi Patanjali compared deep sleep with SAMADHI highest state of consciousness. In deep sleep, you are in the state of SAMADHI but you have fainted at that time you are not aware if you are in deep sleep with awareness then you are in SAMADHI.You have become one with god your soul is free from all forms of bondage.

These are three states of mind.First, while you are in an awakening state that is a conscious state.When you are in sleep that is an unconscious state but aware in sleep is the third state that is a transcendental state or SAMADHI.

Try to concentrate on the gap between two thoughts

What is mind? The mind is a chain of continuously arising thoughts you go from one thought to another thought but you miss the gap of two thoughts there is a gap between two thoughts.

Sit in a comfortable posture in Indian yoga system that is called Asana it may be lotus or half lotus asana cross your legs and your back should be straight from pelvis to your neck when you sit in a straight position your mind power which resides at Muladhara chakra starts flowing to upwards.Close your eyes and try to be aware of your thoughts and try to find the gap between two thoughts then you will see that there is a gap between two thoughts that is pure silence as you will go deep you will find gap has been widening and thoughts are becoming lesser and lesser.As your dhyana will go deep you will find that there are no thoughts this is a thoughtless stage when you achieve that state then minds power will generate than the power of thoughts will generate and you will feel an eternal peace joy and happiness which is not depend on any condition that is unconditional.You have to p[ractise it almost 30 minutes daily.

Egolessness is key to connect superpower

Everyone at the earth is living with an ego to be egoistic it is not necessary to have an unlimited wealth or higher post or beautiful figure if one which is not having any of these may be more egoistic than who have all these.

The Egolessness is the state when you have not your existence physically you are there but mentally you lose your identity that is the state of egolessness and in your life when you feel some moment of joy or ecstasy is due to you have not any ego at that moment.

Ego is hurdle in expansion of yourself-

An egoistic person can not connect with people deeply two people can connect only when there is not any ego love only happen when you are egoless with ego you can make the relationship but there will be no love.

Ego is hurdle between god and yourself-

God is ready to meet with you the only ego is a wall between you and god as you become egoless you become one with god now you are not only god is present there all meditation techniques all yogas all mindfulness techniques are trying to make you egoless.

Timelessness egolessness and thoughtlessness when these three states come together in your life then you are the state of eternal joy and happiness then you are in the state of super-consciousness in the of samadhi which is the highest state of yoga then soul and god become one then no one can disturb your peace your happiness your joy.

Meditation can not be

There are so many yoga teachers and meditation instructors who claims that they will become you the master of yoga and meditation in that duration and they have developed own techniques which is nothing just the strange phenomena of words and body tactics .

I say that meditation is not a thing of doing it happens only when all your efforts and techniques end up .No meditation technique can lead you to the meditative state .By efforts you can acquire money power and status in this world and there are parameters for your efforts and success but in the field of yoga and meditation there are no such parameters.Meditation dhayan samadhi can happen in one moment just right now and it takes many birth meditation is just awareness just be witness of your thoughts your body and your surroundings.

Start with meditation technique

You have to start with technique and at the final stage you have drop technique just like stairs you use to climb and at your target you drop stairs if you struck with stairs you will never reach your target and that is happening in the field of yoga and meditation all yoga teacher and meditation instructors are struck with technique .
