In Primordial Sound Meditation, you receive a personal mantra, sometimes referred to as a birth star mantra. Your mantra is the vibration the universe was creating at the time and place of your birth, and it is calculated following Vedic mathematic formulas.
A mantra is a specific sound or vibration—which when repeated silently—helps you to enter deeper levels of awareness.
When you silently repeat your mantra in meditation, it creates a vibration that helps you slip into the space between your thoughts to the mind’s deepest nature: pure awareness.
Meditation isn’t about forcing your mind to be quiet, it’s about experiencing the silence that’s already there and making it a part of your life. Silence is the birthplace of happiness, creativity, and infinite possibilities. From this field of pure potentiality, we get our bursts of inspiration, our most intuitive thoughts, and deepest sense of connection. Practising meditation on a daily basis allows you to weave silence and stillness into your mind and body to create a life of greater compassion and fulfilment. Even when your mind is filled with agitated thoughts, you still have access to the inner stillness and calm that always lies beneath the choppy surface of thought and emotion.
In the age of digital devices, social media, and busy schedules, the restful awareness we experience during meditation is more valuable than ever. The term “restful awareness” captures the unique combination of physical relaxation and an alert yet quiet mind.
The most direct way to experience inner silence and well-being is meditation, a tool to rediscover the body’s own inner intelligence. As scientific research reveals, when you meditate, your breathing slows, blood pressure decreases, and stress hormone levels fall.
The mantra’s vibration helps you slip into the space between your thoughts, into the complete silence that is sometimes referred to as “the gap.” Your mind is no longer caught up in its noisy internal chatter and is instead exposed to its own deepest nature: pure awareness.
Chopra co-founders Deepak Chopra, M.D., and David Simon M.D., have revived this ancient practice of sound meditation and made it available in a format that’s easy to learn.
