nadabrahma is an old tibetan technique which
was originally done in the early hours
morning. it can be done at
any time of the day, alone or
with others, but have an empty
stomach and remain inactive for at least 15 minutes afterwards.
the meditation lasts an hour
and there are three stages.
first stage: 30 minutes
sit in a relaxed position with eyes closed and lips together.
start humming, loudly
enough to be heard by others and create a vibration throughout
your body. you
can visualise a hollow tube or an empty vessel, filled only with
of the humming. a point will come when the humming continues by
and you become the listener. there is no special breathing and
alter the pitch or move your body smoothly and slowly if
you feel like it.
second stage: 15 minutes
the second stage is divided into two 7 1⁄2
minute sections. for the
first half, move the hands,
palms up, in an outward
motion. starting at the navel, both
hands move forwards and
then divide to make two large circles mirroring each
and right. the movement should be
so slow that at times
there will appear to be no move at all. feel that you are giving
energy outwards to the universe. after 7
1⁄2 minutes turn
the hands, palms down, and start moving
them in the
opposite direction. now the hands will come
towards the navel and divide outwards to
of the body. feel that you are
taking energy in. as
in the first stage, donít
inhibit any soft, slow
movements of the rest of your body.
third stage: 15 minutes
sit absolutely quiet and still.
