“The gong is very simple. It is an inter-vibratory system. It is the sound of Creativity itself. The gong is nothing more, nothing less. 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.” ~Yogi Bhajan
“The gong is a sacred threshold. It is a portal that links the finite and the infinite experience of the self. The most sublime instrument of the Yogi is the Gong. It is a musical instrument, a healing tool for the nervous system and a cauldron in which you can create alchemical blends of qualities that open and develop the inner self. The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, releases you from the torrent of thoughts and stimulates the glandular system to a higher level of functioning. The gong impacts the body and it’s meridians. It releases blocks, reduces tension, and stimulates circulation. The result of this is a reorganization of the emotional energy and feelings that are tied into the body structure.”
Excerpted from The Art of the Gong in Kundalini Yoga & Meditation by Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D. and Gurucharan Singh Khalsa, Ph.D.
