HU, An Ancient Spiritual Mantra

The God Sound: A Spiritual Exercise


Shut your eyes and look into the Spiritual Eye. (It’s between your eyebrows, in the center of your forehead.) Sing HU, an ancient name for God, one of the most powerful words for spiritual upliftment.

As you sing HU, listen for a holy Sound. It may come in any number of ways: like the sound of a rumbling train, a singing bird, buzzing bees, a mellow flute, or even soothing guitars.

It brings joy and wonder.

The holy sounds are the creative action of the Life Force, the ECK, as It moves atoms in the invisible worlds. The Sound to reach your ears resonates with your state of consciousness.

While singing HU, imagine the holy Sound of God cascading over you, like a waterfall of sparkling pure waters. It is cleansing the blemishes of spirit.

The Sound opens a secret path to the joys of love and grace. You find peace, joy, and spiritual freedom.

To Enjoy the Sound Current

The Word, the Voice of the Sᴜɢᴍᴀᴅ [God], goes forth like a wave from the center of a pond and sings Its way through all the planes in many different songs and melodies. Each is the living Word, creating and giving life to everything in each world. By its very life—this ECK, the essence of the Sᴜɢᴍᴀᴅ, the Spirit of all things—life exists.

When It reaches the end of the worlds It returns like the wave, gathering up all Souls that are ready to do God’s work. They are returned to the true home and become Coworkers with God, having completed their mission in life.

The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, Book One, p. 68

Read the above passage aloud to yourself.  Then think for a moment—what is your favorite musical instrument, sound, or melody?  Close your eyes, and imagine that you can hear it.  Let it fill you with love.  The Mᴀʜᴀɴᴛᴀ can show you where that Sound originates in the higher worlds.  Stay with this contemplation for twenty minutes or more.

*          *          *

During your day, take special notice of the harmony of life around you. There will be something that speaks to your mission in this life.

On the Mountain of God

By Sri Harold Klemp

This is a technique of the imagination.

Find a quiet place for this spiritual exercise where no one will disturb you for ten or fifteen minutes. Then shut your eyes and look behind and between your eyebrows. That is the location of your Spiritual Eye.

Now imagine you are climbing to the top of a broad green mountain. Follow the dirt path that leads to a meadow dressed in a carpet of bright, cheerful flowers. Powder-white clouds kiss the summit of the mountain and will instill in you a sense of great joy and wonder.

That is the Mountain of God.

When you reach the top, lie upon the thick, soft carpet of luxurious grass. Feel the sunshine play on your face, arms, and body. Now shut your eyes there on the mountain, too, as you did at the beginning of this spiritual exercise.

Then look gently but steadily into your Spiritual Eye for the Light of God. While waiting for It to appear, sing HU slowly, again and again.

The Light may appear as a soft field of light, similar to the soft white clouds above the mountain. Or it may be a pinpoint of light—blue, white, yellow, purple, or even green or pink.

Continue to watch for the Light within your Spiritual Eye. Now also start listening for the Sound of God—the vibration of the Holy Spirit moving the atoms of life. You may hear It as the sound of a flute, a rushing wind, the chirping of birds, a crashing waterfall, ringing bells, or the buzzing of bees. These are actual, not imaginary, sounds.

This dual manifestation of the Voice of God can bring you more love, wisdom, and understanding.

Let the experience be all you can imagine it to be—and maybe even more.
