Healing with Sound: The Five Warrior Syllables
with John Jackson
Since ancient times, meditative practices from many spiritual traditions have used sound and its vibration as an essential tool for healing and spiritual development. The Tibetan Bon Buddhist tradition is one of the oldest unbroken lineages of wisdom that uses sound for the well-being of its practitioners.
The Five Warrior Syllables practice relies on the power of sound to help heal physical illness, clear psychological and energetic disturbances, and support the spiritual practitioner to abide with clear and open awareness. Guided by the mind and carried by the subtle breath through the channels and chakras of the body, the power of sound helps to uncover positive qualities such as love, compassion, joy and equanimity.
Through practicing with five sacred and powerful sounds known as the Five Warrior Syllables, we transform our lives and discern a clear path that begins with openness and leads to spontaneous, virtuous action in the world.
Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche’s book on the topic, Tibetan Sound Healing, is available from Ligmincha Institute’s Bookstore & Tibet Shop.
