Light of the Soul Journey through the Naad
Parvinder Khalsa will share knowledge of the ancient teachers of India (Vedanta) and their sound technology (Naad Yoga). The practice of Naad Yoga – the Yoga of Sound and of Listening – has been used since ancient times to heal body, mind and spirit and to reconnect to the original consciousness that lives in us and is life itself. Focusing on the Naad is an intensive communication between soul and mind.
There is a universal language, beyond words, culture, sex or nationality. A language of the heart that cuts across all differences and connects us to something greater than ourselves. That language is music. Sound is our connection to our deepest being. It connects us to a higher consciousness, but also to our primal selves. Each one of us has access to this innate power of sound through our voice.
Mantra. Ma means mind, na means not and tra means pattern, that which frees the mind from its limiting belief patterns.
Chanting is a cornerstone practice in Kundalini Yoga, celebrated for its accessibility and ability to bring us back to the heart. Chanting mantra is a conscious method of controlling and directing the mind.
Chanting is like asanas for the mind and the heart.” When we slip into the illusion of separation, chanting brings us back.
We can think of mantras as a code, each containing a signature frequency that we attune to as we vibrate the sounds. It’s a tender and time-tested way to train the mind, guiding it toward the Infinite.
Though not all, most of our mantras in Kundalini Yoga stem from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, the Japji.
Each mantra contains perfect mathematical symmetry, a quantum intelligence encapsulated in the word “naad,” or sacred sound. In the language of Gurmukhi, shabad means sound, and guru means teacher or knowledge that transforms you. The patterns of the Shabd Guru combine atoms of information in the smallest sound units “to release the inner energy of awareness needed to guide the mind through this wave of change.” The root meaning of shabd is that which cuts the ego.
Japji is a way to guide and enlighten other human beings about the reality of the Divine within us & everything.
The power of Japji comes from the combination of its sounds, or naad. Sounds have profound effects on the psyche, and when they are arranged in the science of naad, they have very specific transformative power.
When you repeat the patterns of sound and thought in a Shabad, those thoughts counter the direction and intensity of the habitual thoughts. The Shabad provokes a dumping of the stored subconscious patterns of thinking and feeling. If, under the torrential flood of subconscious feelings and thoughts, you persist in repeating the pattern of the Shabad Guru, then the new pattern establishes itself. Your mind clears, and you awaken dormant inner capacities or enhance existing ones.
The Shabad Guru/Naad is unique. The patterns are a perfect weave of rhythm, sound, tone, focus, and meaning. There is nothing as effective and universal as those patterns to program the consciousness to be in alignment with the soul.
