The Gong in Kundalini Yoga

(Originally published on the Spirit Voyage blog May 2009)

If you have never experienced the sound of a gong played to a deep relaxation, it is a real treat. Yogi Bhajan used to talk about it as a tool that supercedes the mind.

When the gong is played, the mental thought process naturally relaxes. In a new book by Mehtab titled Gong Yoga, he speaks about the different effects of playing the gong.

Here is a clip of Mehtab speaking about playing the gong:

We carry a number of Gong CD’s that can be used for personal relaxation or use in a yoga class when carrying along a gong is just not realistic.

Here are some of them:
