This is a deep roaring heartbeat rhythm Oṃ based on traditional Himalayan cave chanting. This powerful chant should not be listened to while walking, running or driving. Experience the impact of 108 + 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 only once per sitting. There is no need to replay beyond this length of chanting. You can repeat listening to this recording separately at another time.
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 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.
1. Begin by focusing your attention on the mid-point of the eyebrows (knot of time). Stay focused for about three minutes on this point.
2. Move your attention to the heart point (knot of space) - feel the centre of the chest that is the most sentient point (most sensitive point below the third rib on the sternum). Hold your focus for about three minutes.
3. Finally bring your attention to the front of the bladder (knot of energy). Hold your focus here for the remainder of the recording.
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.
