Sabd Yoga

(Śabd Yoga)(Sk. Sabda Yoga). May be described as the yoga of sound. At Beas, near Kapurthala in India, there is a religious sect called the Radha Soami, the members of which meditate on “mystical sound.” This meditation process is called Sabd Yoga. As is the case with some other systems, this meditation begins by concentration on “the space between the eyebrows” and if the meditation is properly carried out then the beautiful sound of a bell may be heard. It is said that during the meditation a sensation of rising is experienced.
