Throat friction meditation technique for attaining Shiva consciousness
AUTHOR(S): Jai Paul Dudeja
A not-so-well-known meditation technique and hence, not practiced by a majority of meditators, has been discussed in this paper. It is called ‘Throat friction meditation’. Its approximate equivalent in Hinduism is the Bhramari meditation. Bhramari is known as the goddess of bees and hence the sound during this type of meditation resembles those of bees. It is basically a meditation for purification and balancing the throat chakra (Vishuddhi chakra). After a prolonged practice of throat-chakra meditation, the focus can then be shifted to the third eye (ajna chakra), which helps the seeker to accrue many physical, mental and psychological benefits and finally in the pilgrimage to Shiva consciousness. The throat friction technique is also equivalent to ‘Tuvan throat singing’ in which the singers produce friction-like voice through their throats. It is also similar to ‘mmm’ meditation, which leads to mental peace, relaxation, happiness and bliss. These aspects are discussed in this paper.
