Long Chant Meditation ~ A Journey into the Naad
March 7 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 7:30pm on day First of the month, repeating indefinitely
with Prempal Kaur “Dana”
First Tuesday evening of the month from 7:30-9:00 pm
Join Prempal Kaur “Dana” for a deep meditative experience as you chant a mantra for 60 minutes. Mantra is the use of sound to affect consciousness; man means mind and trang means wave or projection. Everything in this world, down to the subatomic level, is in constant motion, vibrating. The denser a material, the more slowly it moves; often the vibration is so slow or so fast that we can’t notice it with our direct senses. This vibration is pure energy.
In addition to the term ‘mantra,’ you will also hear the word Naad in connection with Kundalini Yoga mantras. Naad means “the essence of all sound.” It is a particular vibration, a fundamental frequency that comes from one common source or sound current. It is the universal code behind language and therefore behind human communication.
Naad is the glue or medium that connects the little me, the individual, to the Big Me, the Universal Self. It is the vibrational harmony through which the Infinite can be experienced. Naad Yoga is based on the experience of how sound vibrations affect the body, mind, and spirit through the movementof the tongue, the mouth, and changes in the chemicals in the brain.
“Mantras are not small things, mantras have power. They are the mind vibration in relationship to the Cosmos. 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.” ~ Yogi Bhajan
