Au 30: day 22 OM, We are one, last day of the Chopra Meditation Challenge, they will be missed, fortunately I have the other 3 challenges before this one so I'll follow them until Deva's challenge starts. It is nice this 15 min of reflexion, soothing time for myself...Namaste!

KAYOTIC glad you also like it and also have some back-up meditation sessions to explore while the other challenge starts.

Everyone who followed the Challenge, hope you had as much fun as I did, and the time spent gave you a good insight of your potential. Namaste!

SNOWBECH unfortunately Deepak's challenge will finish on Friday. You can buy it in CDs for $39.99 or downloaded in your computer, I don't remember for how much. Check the site, they offer every 3-4 months a new free challenge.

There is the other another challenge starting in September with Deva, check the thread below, join us it is free, the experience is very nice, besides the mantra-focus meditation the music that goes along is very soothing

Au 28: day 20 Om Vardhanam Namah, Forgiveness will set us free... let go of grudges and resentments that keep us slaves of the past... I found the talk very refreshing....

Yes, each "round" so to speak brings new things, and better awareness and focus I find.

I finished day 7 today, So Hum mantra, and a nice walk through the woods to a garden....

I started also late, on Wednesday instead of Monday. I also have to stay attentive to to loose anyone. Love the new structure, I also noticed how I've improved since the first time I did a Chopra Meditation.

Hope everyone is enjoying the experience!

I love it.

I was looking for some CDs during the last weeks. Blah - you barely find some professional stuff.
So im really glad with this. I try to listen twice a day: late in the evening in my bed (i mostly sleep in on half the way...) and first in the morning.

My class/satsang this past weekend had gone marvelously.

The Master Swami got heavily into Nada Yoga (the Yoga of Sound) - though not exactly a physical practice, it is body-based because we touched on our 6th and 7th chakras, and brought the 4th and 3rd into the picture as well ... along with a heaping helping of Bhakti Yoga (the Yoga of Devotion)

Jnana and Bhakti yoga which can be practiced alongside the physical mind-body yogas (I do consider meditation a form of mind-body practice, since it involves breathing and control of the breath.

When you break the mantra "Om" into 5 syllables: you get ah-aw-oh-oooh-mmmmmmm ...."Mmmmm" is the universal sound that humans make if they try to utter any word through closed lips [Try it, and you'll see ...]

So - and there is a specific count involved in this - and you then do 60 iterations of 15-beat Om 's - and it lasts 15 minutes. The breaths are deep and slow as you chant, and there is scant breath retention involved (the more advanced are supposed to be able to avoid breath retention) Because there is power in the 5 count "mmmm" and then the 5-count silence between the Om's

It starts with the universal God-head sound of "Ah" and then moves through the expressive sounds of those 3 chakras .. and then to the point where "there ARE NO WORDS" ...



Lesser artists borrow, great artists steal.

- Igor Stravinsky

Find a way.

--Diana Nyad
