What is Primordial Sound Meditation?

Primordial Sound Meditation is a particular type of mediation that originated in India and has been revived by Deepak Chopra, M.D. and David Simon, M.D. making it available in a format that can be easily learned and practiced by everyone, regardless of a person’s age, education, culture, and religious beliefs.

What are the “Primordial Sounds”?

Primordial Sounds are the basic, most essential sounds of nature. The specific Primordial Sounds, which are used in meditation, are called Mantras. These mantras are personal for each participant and 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 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?

Meditation and Primordial Sound Mediation do not require specific beliefs or a change in behavior or lifestyle. The only adjustment required is that we allow the time to meditate regularly. Other than that, any changes in our life come spontaneously.
