Chanting Breath


God made this pinda (body) and this bramanda (universe) both in the form of‘omkara’. ‘omkara’ is not a particular person or figure; it is a divine power which is controlling and regulating the whole universe. Saying Om gives you the energy from the universe.

How to do

  1. Breathe in deeply through the nose. First, feel the diaphragm move down, allowing the lungs to expand and forcing the abdomen out; then feel your chest expand with your collar bones rising last.
  2. Exhale very slowly while saying Om. Allow the syllable to draw out as slowly as you can. Make sure to keep the O long and the M short. (“OOOOOOm.”)
  3. Repeat 3 times.
