Our body and our being function with an energy, which moves like a bioelectric current within us. When everything, within us, functions perfectly, we can hear a ‘hum’ arise out of our being ——- THE SOUND OF HEALTH. Energy, electricity, sounds —– this is the play of the trinity in our being.
A rhythmic ‘hum’, means that our being is in good health. When it’s discordant, we should know that it’s in ‘chaos’. What is true of our being is true of the cosmos. Ancient sages, who illuminated us about the universe, meditated first to experience the same within themselves. Physicists say sound is merely modification of electricity. Yogis say electricity is merely modification of sound. Both are true. Sound and Electricity are two forms of the same phenomenon. Call it electricity or sound, call it fire like Heraclitus or water like Lao Tzu ……. All these are merely forms of the formless.
For the Yogi, electricity is irrelevant. Through sound, he can change many phenomena, even inner electricity. He calls it PRANA —– the inner bio-energy. That is why when you listen to classical music, you feel a certain silence —— your inner body energy changes. Listen to a madman, and you feel you’re going crazy too, because the madman’s body electricity is in chaos. Sit with an enlightened person and suddenly everything within you falls into a rhythm.
Osho has given a very powerful method of meditation. NADABRAHMA. It lasts for an hour and has tree stages : Stage 1 —-(30 minutes) Sit in a relaxed stance, eyes and lips closed . Hum loudly, so others can hear you. Visualise a hollow tube or empty vessel, filled only with vibrations of humming. A point will come when the humming continues by itself and you become the listener. Stage 2 —- (15 minutes, two sections) For the first half, move your hands, palms facing up, in an outward circular motion. Starting at the navel, both hands move forward and apart to make large arcs, left to right. The movement should be so slow that at times there appears to be no movement at all. It’s like you are giving energy to the universe. In the second half, turn the palms down and move them in the reverse direction. Let the hands come together towards the navel, as if you are taking energy in. Stage 3 —– (15 minutes) Sit or lie down, absolutely quiet and very still. This method of meditation gives deep peace and nourishes our being with universal energy . It is called the HEALING MEDITATION.
