Mahapran Dhvani

Sound is a very powerful and a mystic medium for the expression of the subtle through the gross. Some sounds have power in a single continuous vibration, while others are grouped notes that make a spiritual word.

Mahapran dhvani is a kind of sound produced before entering the state of meditation. These sound vibrations transmit immense energy. Mahapran dhvani can help in intellectual development. The sound waves and the vibrations created during the pronunciation of the Mahapran dhvani penetrate and circulate throughout the brain and activate the neurons. It helps in reducing the unsteadiness of thoughts. In addition, it enhances the concentration of our mind. A sustained practice leads to enhancement of the vital energy that helps sharpen our memory. It also increases the life span of neurons and regulates the secretion from the endocrine glands. The vibrations of Mahapran dhvani smoothens the flow of blood in tissues and 0rgans.

It is of three types:

  1. The most subtle sound

How to train the mind
We have drawn a circle around the mind. We do not want to cross this circle. It is not possible to assess the potential of the mind without breaking this cordon. The mind can know the thoughts of other minds also and influence them. It can send and receive messages to and from other minds also.

Scientific breathing begins with a slow, calm and complete exhalation. Contraction of the abdominal muscles helps to evacuate the lungs by raising the diaphragm. Having emptied the lungs, the next step is to fill it up to the maximum extent.
