This audio is created for use with the "Accessing the Knowledge of the Universe" Kundalini Yoga meditation taught by Yogi Bhajan. It uses the Pran Bandha Mantra. The audio is synchronized with chimes that let you know when to move on to the next part. It consists of:
30 seconds of silence (so you can turn on the audio and get into position - this time may also be used to "tune in")
3 minutes of silent meditation using the lotus mudra
11 minutes of the Pran Bandha Mantra with lotus mudra
3 minutes of silent meditation using gyan mudra
2 minutes of breath of fire in gyan mudra
To finish: take a deep breath in and pump the navel. Exhale. Repeat two more times.
The Pran Bandha Mantra is as follows:
PAVAN PAVAN PAVAN PAVAN
PAR PARA PAVAN GURU
PAVAN GURU WAHE GURU
WAHE GURU PAVAN GURU
(The audio is a looped snippet from the 2008 Kundalini Yoga Festival.)

The sound "om" is said to be the sound of creation. It is said that chanting "om" can bring peace and connection with the divine. "Om" is also thought to clear out negative energy in the space in which it is chanted.
Special thanks to Gabriel Gonsalves of Empowered Actors for lending his voice for the beautiful "om" in this track.
