"The source of all creation

is pure consciousness...

  pure potentiality seeking

  from the expression

  unmanifest to the manifest...

When we realize

that our true Self is one

of pure potentiality, we align

with the power that manifests

everything in the universe."

-Deepak Chopra

What is Primordial Sound Meditation?

Primordial Sound Meditation originates from the ancient wisdom traditions of India. Deepak Chopra, MD and David Simon, MD have revived this authentic process and made it available in a format that can be easily learned and practiced by everyone. It is an easily learned meditation technique which uses individually selected vibratory sounds, or mantras, to create a quieting influence in the mind. These mantras, or primordial sounds, are the basic vibrations in nature. The selection of the correct sound is individually determined based on the location, time and date of birth. When used correctly, these mantras guide the awareness from the level of activity to the realm of silence.

How will meditation affect my health?

Meditation is one of the most powerful tools there is to help us restore the harmony within and to gain access to our bodies' inner intelligence. Our minds become quiet allowing our bodies to gain the deep rest necessary to release stress and fatigue and improve mind body balance.

Studies have shown that people who regularly meditate have long-term reduction in blood pressure, and a reduced use of both prescription and nonprescription drugs. In addition to high blood pressure, doctors are increasingly citing stress as a major factor in such illnesses as depression, anxiety, cardiac pain, insomnia, diabetes, ulcers, cold, fever, asthma, arthritis and alcoholism.

Even though meditation should not be considered a cure by itself, research has shown that it contributes to reducing stress and achieving deep relaxation and a profound state of rest. By reducing stress, meditation has important benefits for a wide range of health problems, and also allows the mind and body to function with maximum effectiveness.

Are there other benefits of meditation?

In meditation, we rediscover the silence in our mind and make it part of our life. Silence is the birthplace of happiness. It is where we get our bursts of inspiration, our tender feelings of compassion, our sense of love. In meditation we reconnect with our essence. This connection extends into our daily lives and can result in improved health, more fulfilling relationships, enthusiasm for life and increased creativity. Meditation becomes a pathway to freedom and self-knowledge. Primordial Sound Meditation provides the direct experience of the field of pure potentiality which is the source of all creativity and energy.

What are "Primordial Sounds"?

Primordial Sounds are the basic, most essential sounds of nature. The specific Primordial Sounds which are used in meditation are mantras. These mantras are personal for each participant. They are chosen on the basis of Vedic mathematics which determines a specific sound or vibration of the Universe at the time and place of our birth. When we silently repeat Primordial Sounds as part of the mantra, they help to take our awareness away from the frenzy of daily activity of the mind to the stillness of our spirit. The effect soothes our entire physiology - mind, body and soul.

Will I need to change my lifestyle in order to meditate?

Primordial Sound Meditation can be learned by people of every age, education, culture and religion. It does not require specific beliefs or a change in behavior or lifestyle. The only change or adjustment we need to make is to allow the time to meditate regularly. Other than that, any changes in our life come spontaneously.
