The Power of sound

To utter OM regularly in groups has a better effect on the subtle planes for world peace than peace demonstrations.

Rhythm and ritual

All rhythms and rituals finally aim at transforming the matter of our body in a natural way in order to enable a faster development.

Listening to the silence

When we listen to the silence, we will hear a humming sound. This is the voice of silence, the soundless sound which is heard in the heart centre.

Book: Rudra

The Water as per the Scriptures is the physical plane manifestation of the ethers of the solar and cosmic plane. They also represent the life energy. The Water Ritual (Abhishekam) aims at the manifestation of the electrical power from its invisible planes to the visible planes. Rudra, the Lord of Vibration, is the first and foremost of the Vedic Devas who enables the light beyond darkness to manifest as the light visible and tangible. He is the Lord that destroys the darkness to bring down the light beyond darkness into the perception and experience of the beings. He is also the Lord who destroys the darkness of ignorance as it exists in the mortal beings and leads them into the light. Rudra helps enable a being to experience the Divinity and its activity. The vibration of the Lord exists in all that IS. That is what is to be perceived by the aspirant who worships Rudra.

In all, the Water Ritual is given by Dr. K. Parvathi Kumar in seven steps for the benefit of the West. Step one relates to the fivefold mantra of the Lord, which enables gaining supremacy over the five senses and also develop the will of the mind. Step two is a worship mantra seeking fulfilment from the Lord. Step three relates to the ten dimensions of the Lord i.e., east, south-east, south, south-west, west, north-west, north, north-east, above, and below. With Rudra at the centre, the total is 11. This mantra enables the construction of a double pyramid around the ritualist. This enables the total protection to the ritualist. Step four consists of worshipping the Lord with his eleven chief names. The eleven names are attributed to the eleven varieties of vibrations of the Lord. Step five relates to a special hymn formulated in the Veda for propitiation of the Lord. It is the heart of the chief hymn to the Lord Rudra as contained in the Yajur Veda. Step six relates to seeking longevity of life until the ritualist realizes the myth of death and releases himself consciously from the bondage of the body. Step seven relates to the chief invocation of Lord Rudra who exists in matter, water, fire, air, ethers, and permeates all that IS.
