Primordial Sound: Nature’s Finest Vibrations

Once a person learns to transcend, his mind is opened to itself in a fresh way. That is very beneficial, as we have seen, but it is not the whole story. You can also learn to manipulate the subtle layers of the mind. For that, special techniques exist, the first of which is called primordial sound. It takes its name from the faint vibrations that can be detected when the mind is almost totally quiet.

According to Ayurveda, these fainter-than-faint sounds are not incidental: all of nature is made up of them. In the complete stillness of the quantum mechanical universe, primordial sounds are born, form patterns, and in time blossom into matter, energy, and all the infinite variety of things made of matter and energy–Mars, trees, rocks, and human beings.

The theory behind primordial sound treatment is that the mind can return to the quantum level, introduce certain sounds that may have become distorted somewhere along the line, and thus have a profound healing influence in the body.

Wrong about sound creating matter and energy. Sound is measured as energy waves. A little elementary physics maybe would help?

Really a very beautiful article. I wish I didn't have this tinnitus to contend with. Another one of life's tests? It interferes with silence in a big way. :>)

I have lived or even briefly stayed in many towns in some 26 countries and now live in a small town in BC, Canada. The noise level experienced in downtown NewYork was less than this on a daily basis. I regard all the sounds as primordial - but that's not the same 'primordial' that Deepak refers to.
Despite the noise, I do manage to meditate regularly and also practise breathing deeply to reduce my level of stress after cringing with every loud sound.... Hopefully, my third move in this town will lead to my enjoyment of a quieter environment.

It might be worth a try. I mean, trying to repair issues by sound alignment....

I'm never in a place that's silent. There's constant traffic, sirens, alarms, kids screaming ( I live near a school) blue jays squawking, etc. Maybe that's why I'm so stressed.
