Intone a sound
A chanting meditation in four stages to enter from sound to soundlessness.
Stage 1: (10 min.)
Sitting comfortable. Start to chant AUM so that you can hear yourself clearly.
Stage 2: (10 min.)
Still chanting, but less loudly, feel the sound vibrating through your whole body.
Stage 3: (10 min.)
Intoning the sound with the lips closed, so that only you can hear yourself, feel the sweetness of the sound.
Stage 4: (10min.)
Slowly, slowly, more subtly, more subtly until the sound fades into soundlessness. Bathe in the inner silence until the sound of the gong.
