"The gong is very simple. It is the sound of Creativity itself."

The Sound of the Gong
"The gong is very simple. It is the sound of Creativity itself. One who plays the gong plays the Universe. The gong is not an ordinary thing to play. Out of it came all music, all sounds, and all words. The sound of the gong is the nucleus of the Word. The gong is not a musical instrument, nor a drum. The gong is a beautiful reinforced vibration. It is like a multitude of strings, as if you played with a million strings. The gong is the only tool with which you can produce this combination of space vibration." ~Yogi Bhajan

The Gong Experience

The Sound of the Gong creates Deep Relaxation

The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, freeing us from the flood of thoughts our mind releases, and stimulates the glandular system to a higher level of functioning.

During the gong meditation emotional transformation is produced as it reduces tension, releases blocks and stimulates circulation. The result is a reorganization of the emotional energy and feelings that are tied into the body structure. The gong changes feelings that are blocked by cutting the thoughts that sustain and recreate the feelings.

The gong meditation clears the nerve endings and regenerates the parasympathetic system which is ruled by sound. The parasympathetic system sends "relax" messages to all the organs. It regulates the rebuilding functions of the body and it is vital for handling stress since it coordinates the recovery period from stress. To regenerate the parasympathetic system, nothing is more powerful than the gong.
All the student needs to do is let the entire body relax and let the sound of the gong penetrate the body and guide the mind.

The Gongs

Each has a Purpose

I Trust

Jupiter's character is evolution. Jupiter can be equated with the spiritual master, who is said to give back nine or tenfold what he is given. Jupiter supports creative power and continuous construction. Generosity, continuity, magnanimity, trust, good fortune, and expansion are its virtues. It stands for philosophical and material creativity.  

I Let Go

Pluto's character is Transformation. Growth and transcendence through conflict. Pluto breaks down the old into its component parts only to reassemble them on a new higher octave. Pluto rules the raising of kundalini, the major driving power of this ongoing process.

I Am

The Sun's character is Self. It helps to define our individuality, integrity, and independence; to overcome limiting environmental conditions, and to be in touch with our Divine seed. The Sun is the tone of the 20th century. It is the border between Yin and Yang, manifested and un-mainifested energy, between this side and the other side. It rises out of a higher dimension and stands for the magical and the transcendental. 

I Love

Venus's character is relationships, supporting higher love energy and aspiration for harmony. Enhances the sense of creativity and artistry, the ability to receive, share, and increase our love of pleasure, joy, harmony and self-appreciation.
