Today mathomathis is going to discuss the concept of uncreated sound called as Anahata Nada(The unheard sound)

Mr. Roger Gould-King
Total silence is perfection. Silence is necessary for sound to exist, it is the aural canvas for melody’s brush in our three dimensional world. The sounds we know are produced by at least two elements – the waves on a shore, wind in the trees, the blades of a bagpipe reed vibrating together, two lips, drum and drumstick, fingering a guitar string and so on. 

One of the koans of Zen asks, "What is the sound of one hand clapping?". This sound is known in the Sanskrit tradition as "Anahata Nada," the "Unmade Sound". This means a sound not made in the way we know of it is the "sound" of the universe, the primal sound of energy itself. Ancient tradition says that the audible sound which most resembles this unmade sound is the sound of "AUM" (OM). ( Brahma Randhra: Brahma-aperture; opening in the crown of the head; "the tiniest of apertures, in which is the silent, primordial sound, which gives you the impression that you are, but you really are not" (Nisargadatta)). According to the Vedas, AUM is the most sacred of all words, out of which emanated the universe. The symbol of both the personal God and the Brahman or Absolute.

AUM is regarded by Hindus as the greatest mantra being of incalculable spiritual potency. Aum is not, in itself, the unstuck sound, but leads one to it. The mantra is composed of four elements. Three are vocal sounds: A, U, and M, while the fourth element is the silence which begins and ends the audible sound, the silence which supports it. The objective of intoning AUM is not only the mantra itself, but the experience of perceiving the unmade sound that supports it. This is the same as seeking the space which "supports" the universe and its galaxies : the "emptiness" or nothingness of space is necessary for the existence of everything seen and unseen. Everything seen and unseen, heard and unheard, smelt and un-smelt, felt and un-felt, tasted and untasted, are manifestations of pure energy.

This energy is the "container" for all things, and it is the seemingly elusive Source people have given numerous names to God, Self, Brahman , Godhead. The Absolute, the Supreme Reality, the Ultimate Reality, Truth or the Self of the Vedanta Philosophy are also used interchangeably for Brahman, and so on. Our interface with the material world is through our senses and the interpretation of these sensations with our minds our thoughts. 

I. Chakras and the Natural Number series: 

The Natural Number series is formed by adding a succeeding number to the previous root number, and is as follows :
0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,233,377 and so on. In other words, 5+8=13, 8+13=21, 21+13=34 etc. If one divides one number by another, one gets a ratio, 89/144= 0.618, or, 144/89 = 1.618, and, 144/233=0.618. This ratio, known variously as the golden section, golden mean or divine proportion, can be found everywhere in nature. It is represented by a rectangle in which the width compared to the length, is in the same proportion as the length compared to the sum of the width and length; i.e. "the smaller is to the larger, as the larger is to the whole". This sequence will be found in genetics and geometry, snail shells and in the growth formations of plants and other life forms, including the proportions of the human body.  

II. Chakras of the Head:

If one assigns the value of one to the distance between the chin and the crown of the human head, then 0.618 of this distance will be found to correspond exactly to the various locations of the head chakras.[The value 0.168 is the number we got when diving the recurring digits] 

II... I) Location of Head Chakras Layayoga - an Advanced Method of Concentration, Shyam Sundar Goswami, citing many references, describes thirteen chakras altogether; the seven standard chakras and six minor ones. The following lists the chakras according to the 13-chakra model. The location of these chakras is shown in the drawing.

The Thirteen Chakras are

Chakra Location Petals Association Color
Tone
Sahasrara above head 1000 transcendent gold 486
Guru above head 12 transcendent silver
Nirvana crown 100 mind origin white
Indu forehead 16 buddhi

Manas forehead 6 chitta

Ajna brow 2 manas violet 432
Talu/Lalana roof of mouth 12 or 64


Vishuddha throat 16 space blue 405
Anahata heart 12 air green 370
Hrit below heart 8


Manipura sternum base 10 fire yellow 324
Svadhistana below navel 6 water orange 288
Muladhara base of spine 4 earth red
 

The same method for determining the location of the head chakras, is used to locate those for the rest of the torso.

This is illustrated in the diagram.  




The physical location of each chakra is important in terms of its response to vibrations, i.e. tones, colours and so on.
