The Science of Naad & Gurbani

(As explained by Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji)

"Naad means "the essence of all sounds". All languages contain sounds which relate to one or more of the five elements of air, fire, water, earth or ether. Gurbani is a perfect combination and permutation of sounds relating to all the five elements in complete balance. When Guru Arjun Dev, the fifth Guru Nanak, compiled the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, in 1604, he put in only those Banis which were in Naad. These compositions are called Gurbani.

There are eighty-four meridian points on the upper palate of a human’s mouth. One can feel that upper palate with the tongue and experience its different surfaces. There are two rows of meridian points on the upper palate and on the gum behind the upper teeth. The tongue stimulates those meridian points, and they in turn stimulate the hypothalamus which makes the pineal gland radiate. When the pineal gland radiates, it creates an impulsation in the pituitary gland. When the pituitary gland gives impulsation, the entire glandular system secretes and a human being obtains bliss. This is the science.

Gurbani is the combination of the tongue with the meridian points. When you read and recite Gurbani, it stimulates your hypothalamus. It is totally different than any scriptures because Gurbani is made in a scientific way. There are two banis: "kachee bani" is that which does not fit on the Naad. It is not a balanced sound current. "Pakee bani" is that which fits on the Naad and is balanced. One who knows the Naad knows the Aad, the Primal Creativity. One who knows the Aad is Parmayshwaar, the Supreme God.

The whole language of Gurbani has the power to make a person divine, just in its recitation, if done correctly. One need not be concerned with the meaning for a change in consciousness. Bani has to be understood by the heart, not by the head. There is no power in the head, it is in the heart. The head is for God and the heart is for you. That is why Guru Gobind Singh asked for the head, and not for the heart. Whosoever lives with the head to God and heart for self, that prayer is complete.

The entire Siri Guru Granth Sahib is the calling of the Beloved. It is in Naad. Torah, Bible and Vedas are not in Naad because none of them felt that much pain of separation between God and the beloved. " – Excerpt from the book: Victory and Virtue (onlineprint)

  1. Wow very interesting….I must say, all of your blogs are very intesrting as well as educational, keep up the good work. Thanks for educating us and guiding us poor souls into the right direction…the quote of the day was very nice as well… Made me realize that I’m the grease that sticks to the pot…I’ve always wondered if there was any value of reading the Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji without really understanding it, now i got my answer:)

    Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji ki fateh!

    I guess I am completly wrong in all my thinking ways. The first time I had Darshan of the Guru in Stockton,Ca was an unforgetable expierience. I was shown a way to God and all that counts is my loving devotion, not anyone elses but my own.I LOVE SIKHI.
    It is good that pepole communicate if when I should be watching my mouth{typing hands} because you get so worked up in your thought process you forget thet you are the one thinking like that. My advice comes from many resources so that I dont get carried away with anothers thought process, sometimes its good sometimes its bad, I thank Waheguru when someone elses words clean out some of the garbage I had in my brain/ gives me a new perspective of myself/life-human thinking.
    Im thankful to have a place online to get perspective views “in order to form a more perfect union.”
    There are websites out there slandering the Khalsa for things they dont know or things they dont investigate.We as Khalsa need to be on the same team even if we have complete different views.
    Please email me ANYTHING I should know…If you actually email me then I was supossed to hear your opinion.Please I love advice its not a bad thing to have constructive critisisum. I will not feel like anyone is scolding me even if they are. KAL TAARAN GURU NANAK AAYAA. WAHEGURU Ji ka Khalsa, WAHEGURU Ji ki fateh!

    I agree with you Gurumustuk and I think I know what site you are talking about! It has not changed my views at all about anything despite all the negative out there about Sikhs and Sikhi. I read everything, but at the end somehow I follow my heart, mind and let the Guru Sahib guide me to put things in perpective. Sikh community of today is much smarter, informed, independent thinking and watchful of things being said by non-Sikhs and even some Sikhi experts alike at some sites and in media. All I want to say is that focus on the positives and let Guru Granth Sahib be your guide! Dharma Rai will be the ultimate judge including all the negative comments. BTW, the last three posts were really great!

    i am an indian living in pune.i had only heard about yogiji but after seeing and hearing his lectures or teachings on sikhnet i am very impressed.they are fantastic,practical,scientific and convincing.
    such information and knowledge is absent and missing in most of the prevalent yogis and sadhus even in india.
    such writings,excerpts and lectures should be posted more and more.they are very enlightening.

    Sat sri akal everyone,

    I read this blog and I found the knowledge very uplifting. The science behind the sounds of the bani is very interesting. However, what I don’t agree with is “Torah, Bible and Vedas are not in Naad because none of them felt that much pain of separation between God and the beloved.” I strongly feel that it is not right to praise about our beliefs and what our religion stands for at the cost of putting others down. I am sure if we look at the history of those religions and feel the sincerity and humility in people of those religions, the teachings would be very similar, if not the same. So I think we should all feel Waheguruji’s presence in our hearts and put aside the analysis of the mind.
