The Use and Science of the Gong. The most sublime instrument of the Yogi is the Gong. It is a musical instrument, a healing tool for the nervous system and a cauldron in which you can create alchemical blends of qualities that open and develop the Inner Self. Yogi Bhajan has asked that each ashram and yoga center have a gong and play it regularly. He said it would help repair the ravages of drugs in the nervous system. The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, releases you from the torrent of thoughts and stimulates the glandular system to a higher level of functioning. When you come to a Gong meditation we will begin with some gentle spinal movements to open and clear your body. You will then lay comfortably on a mat or cushions. Relax deeply in the sound and leave feeling refreshed.

KIRTAN KRIYA; often referred to as SA TA NA MA meditation, is the most important meditation in Kundalini Yoga. It was one of the first meditations taught by Yogi Bhajan and remains today as a foundation meditation recommended for every student. Yogi Bhajan said that if you can do only one meditation, this is it. It is your teacher. And as you practice it, you will come to realize that it is your best friend. Sa Ta Na Ma Meditation is becoming scientifically recognized as a powerful tool for preventing or stopping Alzheimer’s disease, increasing all aspects of cognitive function and reducing stress levels while improving short term memory. $10 read more. https://pranayogasarasota.com/ongoing-events/31-min-meditation-before-the-gong
