”Ong shabd is the creative sound of the word ‘Om.’ ‘Om’ cannot be chanted, cannot be heard, cannot be sung, but you can create it. It is a creative word. That is why Guru Nanak used Ong. It is the right pronunciation of the word ‘Om.’ Ong means creative force of God.”
”It is created in the conch, not with the mouth, not within, it is created in the conch of the human brain. It is the sound which is the combination of the breath, the mouth, and the nose. Where they two meet in the panel of the air, five airs will meet, you can create this sound.”
Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine. Interlock all of your fingers except your Sun (ring) fingers, which are pressed together pointing upward.
The right thumb locks down the left thumb. Place the mudra at diaphragm level, several inches out from the body, with the Sun fingers pointing out at a sixty-degree angle. Close your eyes.
Inhale deeply and chant ”Ong” in long form, one recitation of Ong per exhalation (approximately 15 seconds, but in a group setting, each person chants in their own breath rhythm). The sound is created through the nose; although the mouth is held slightly open, no air comes through the mouth. The sound comes from the nose by way of the back of the upper palate. Your upper palate will vibrate, concentrate to do it correctly. 8 Minutes.
”…it is very important, if you want to be in love with yourself, to practice this sound. That will give you a great essence and joy of life.”
