Meditation for Finding Happiness and Peace Within

Peace and happiness can only be found within. Vibrate Ong at the center of the nose. This stimulates the brain. If it makes you cough, just allow it. It is said to be the sound of the conch, adjusting the thyroid and giving power, beauty, and youth.

Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with the spine straight, chin in and chest out. Jalandhar Bandh (Neck Lock) is especially important for this meditation.

Mantra and Breath: Begin chanting Ong in the long form so that it takes approximately 10 seconds to chant one time. Chant though the “conch,” focusing at the Third Eye Point, making the sound nasal. The mouth is slightly open and the breath comes only out of the nostrils. Chant in this manner 5 times.

Then gradually begin to chant Ong faster so that you are chanting one Ong every 3-5 seconds. The mouth is slightly open, and the sound is created by opening and closing the back of the throat, focusing and vibrating at the Brow Point. Start with 1 minute of rapid Ong and gradually work up to 2 minutes.
