The imperishable sound is the seed of all that exists.
The past, the present, the future – all are but the unfolding of OM.”

Omkar Sadhana in Bangalore is going to be an exploration of the key tenets of Indian philosophy in the context of contemporary living. These are the tenets that can help us arrive at the core, causal level of the disturbance that we see manifest in all areas of life.
The workshop probes essential Mantras & Shlokas to elucidate their practical implications on this path of self-discovery. They attempt to demystify concepts & ideas around meditation & the inner journey. Thus omkar chanting or chanting om sound does have a profound effect on one’s psyche.
Through profound insights, we initiate you onto the spiritual practice of the eternal path. The texts we refer to during the exploration come from the four Vedas (Rig, Sama, Yajur and Atharva), the Upanishads, the Bhagwat Gita, the Srimad Bhagwatam and the works of Adi Shankaracharya. We also attempt to reinterpret Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra and specifically the eight-fold path prescribed in it. From there we take on the pinnacle of Indian philosophy as a thought experiment leading to the direct confrontation of non-dual awareness. Finally the workshop concludes with the sharing of a structured, scientific and easily implementable meditation practice.
“Wake up! Seek the Truth! Rise above ignorance. Search out the best teachers, and through them find the Truth. But beware! The path is narrow, the sages warn, sharp as razor’s edge, most difficult to tread.”

Take a journey with us back in time, 10000 years, to explore the secret mystical wisdom of the ancients. It’s a wisdom that is more relevant in today’s world than it ever has been. In the modern world there is disturbance at the individual level, with rising lifestyle illnesses, depression, anxiety, etc. There is disturbance at the community level, where we are more disconnected while desperate to have connection. There is also disturbance at the global level where by our greed and ambition we are destroying the very ecosystem that sustains us.
The Global Impact
“The infinite is bliss. There is no bliss in anything finite. Only the Infinite is bliss. One must desire to understand the Infinite.”
– Chandogya Upanishad

Omkar Sadhana is not just the intensive individual practice that easily becomes part of your daily routine but is also the opportunity to become a part of a growing community working towards peace and harmony at the global level.

Illustrations of people seated with half closed eyes in meditative postures on walls of the Indian subcontinent are the oldest evidence documented on the practice of meditation. (5000-3500 BCE approx.). The Vedas also contain written evidences of different forms of meditation around 1500 BCE.
In fact, meditation in a way is our heritage and we must explore all that it can do to our lives.
“Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in the eternal awareness or pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging finitude in infinity.”
Scientifically, om meditation is said to improve attention span, creativity, problem solving, and stress response. It is also said to ease symptoms of depression, anxiety, and pain, reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, initiate compassion in you and improve sleep. Hence CHANTING OM improves pulmonary function, provides potential relief from depression and stress, increases mental alertness, and increases awareness.
When people meditate in large groups, it brings positive changes around the world like, drop in violence and crime rates, reduced suicide rates and less automobile accidents. During one such study, there was a 72% drop in terrorist activities when this group was in meditation.
A Consistent Practice
“India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great-grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only.”
– Mark Twain, American author
The ideas that we are discussing here are universal in nature. Therefore they address everyone, irrespective of belief, nationality, birth or race. Everyone wants to be happy, and that is our primary pursuit. That holds good if the cause of suffering is identified as ignorance. In fact it is knowledge that we are pursuing. Knowledge that can wipe away the darkness of ignorance. However, this is not bookish knowledge. Of course, there is study involved. But this knowledge has to be established as experiential truth.
Omkar Sadhana is just that. Also, it does not need convincing or belief of any kind. In fact it is purely experiential, and the very first time you try it, you feel its impact. The workshop in Bangalore Indiranagar at FLUX builds the context for om meditation and creates the anchors required to make it a consistent practice, i.e., a Sadhana.
“India will teach us the tolerance and gentleness of mature mind, understanding spirit and a unifying, pacifying love for all human beings.”

Would the world not be a better place to live in if more and more people were to establish in a stable, focused and non-prejudiced state of mind? It’s to have a zeitgeist that is universal, all-inclusive and compassionate on the one hand and yet is profoundly stark, hard-hitting and transformative. It’s where we are not a part of belief systems that divide us and pit us against one another. Rather there is a true direct wisdom that allows us to recognize the ultimate oneness of everything.
