“We meditate so that our minds can be sharp and alert. We chant mantras so that our souls may ignite like a candle.
In the light of this beauty we will walk.” Yogi Bhajan 22nd Feb 1999

IMG_0107     THE GONG

 

Gong

 

Yogi Bhajan encouraged Kundalini Yoga teachers to offer the experience of the gong to students during Kundalini Yoga classes to enhance and complement relaxation and meditation. The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, releases you from the torrent of thoughts and stimulates the glandular system to a higher level of functioning.  The gong impacts the body and its meridians. It releases blocks, reduces tension and stimulates circulation.

“The gong is very simple. It is an inter-vibratory system. It is the sound of Creativity itself. The gong is nothing more, nothing less. One who plays the gong plays the universe. The gong is not an ordinary thing to play. Out of it came all music, all sounds, and all words. The sound of the gong is the nucleus of the Word.” YB
