Meditation, in general, and Primordial Sound Meditation, in particular, enhances yoga practice by expanding the mind's awareness. PSM also offers the following additional benefits:

  • Decreases anxiety and stress
  • Reduces mental chatter
  • Awakens intuitive powers
  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Creates a stronger connection with spiritual energy
  • Reduces insomnia
  • Opens the mind, thereby eliminating a tendency to be judgmental
  • Boosts energy

To practice Primordial Sound Meditation, the yogi chooses a comfortable seated or prone position, as for any type of meditation, and closes his/her eyes. The key is to allow the mind to become quiet by silently repeating the mantra and then passively experiencing that quietness and the awakening of consciousness.
