Auszug aus „Inneres Hören„:

Various attributes of the nada-sound embody helpful spiritual qualities, some of which lend it to being at least as universally accessible and useful as mindfulness of breathing, if not more so. Firstly, using the nada-sound as a meditation object encourages the attitude of listening and receptivity. It requires one to be more the open-hearted experiencer than the director of an activity. Secondly, the sound is not subject to personal control. Unlike the breath, which we can make longer or shorter or change in other ways at will, we can’t choose to make the inner sound louder or softer, make it begin or end, or indeed do anything at all with it. We can either turn to it and pay attention or not, but it’s not subject to personal direction or choice.

It thus naturally encourages a realization of the utter impersonality of experience – it has no particular characteristic that makes us think of it as ‘me’ or ‘mine’. It is not female or male, young or old, clever or stupid… it has no size or nationality, no colour or language… it simply is, with the impartiality of Nature itself. Lastly, it’s energizing, it has a naturally arousing quality. The more we pay attention to it, the brighter it tends to make the mind. It works in a positive feedback loop, so that the stronger the attention on it, the more it feeds the capacity to be attentive. It thus supports the very act of meditation by helping the mind to be more alert.
