Book Review – The Practice of Nada Yoga: Meditation on the Inner Sacred Sound by Baird Hersey

Book Review
The Practice of Nada Yoga
Meditation on the Inner Sacred Sound
by Baird Hersey

Mr. Hersey has written a clear, concise explanation of the yoga of *listening*. The basics are all here. He begins at the beginning – what is Nada Yoga?

There is a section on each of the four levels of sound: how to find inner sounds, how to quiet surrounding sounds, quieting the mind and adding visual focus, i.e. sights and colors.

Each section includes guidelines and simple meditations to get started.

Moving on to the *basic* nada meditation, he includes both simple, and more complex instructions.

The author then goes to a section on *additives*, other practices that can be combined with the nada meditation, such as the “bhandas” (physical locking of the body), mantra (chanting), pranayama (breath), visual focus and grounding.

The book comes to an end with chapters introducing the reader to asana (posture), complete with illustrations, pranayama, the 8 limbs of yoga and the chakras.

Each chapter is prefaced by beautiful and insightful quotes from various sources.

If anyone is looking for a beautiful meditative daily practice, this book could be your companion on that journey.
