‘Nada’ means flow of consciousness. ‘Nada’ is translated to mean ‘sound’ or vibration.
As we develop our sound practice, we become sensitised to the more subtle aspects of sound and silence, the field from which sound arises. We recognise that sound is vibration, and that vibration can be heard through our ears, our skin, bones, viscera … We also awaken to the inner sound, anahata.
Sound can be audible, struck, ‘ahat’ or inaudible, unstruck, ‘anahat’. The journey from audible to inaudible sound, gross to the subtle is the essence of Nada Yoga.
