This is a deep roaring heartbeat rhythm Oṃ based on traditional Himalayan cave chanting. The duration of 36 Oṃ is about 50 seconds at a rhythm of slightly one Oṃ per second. This powerful chant should not be listened to while walking, running or driving. Experience the impact of 108Hz - 10Hz (a down shift by 10 Hz) Oṃ in a quiet place with a steady and comfortable pose. This frequency chant should be chosen if found easier to resonate with than the 108Hz chant. This recording is from a live breathless chanting session with His Holiness Swami Vidyadhishananda, who introduced this 10Hz shift with his voice. There is no digital manipulation for pitch or frequency adjustment. Play the recording once or up to six times per sitting. You can repeat listening to this recording separately at another sitting.
Quietening the mind and subtle energization can be effected by focusing the attention in three points on the front surface of the body: the mid-point of the eyebrows in between the eyebrows (knot of time), the heart area-point in the centre of the chest (knot of space), and in front of the bladder, five fingers below the belly button point (knot of energy). During your concentration on each point, you are welcome to synchronize the beating sound with your own heartbeat. Think of this sound as the amplified sound of your own heartbeat and merge. Breathwork is not used in this listening, and no attention on the breath is needed.
No physical or muscular pressure should be applied during this mental repose. Do not manifest tension in the body with forceful mental concentration. Simply focusing in these points will guide the subtle energy deeper into the three knots: time, space and energy. Please use good speakers or high quality headphones when listening and meditating.
