Pranava is the original vibration of the universe that is dancing your life into being. If you feel a resonance calling you back to your inner nature, to the Source of creation, then you have the seed of dharma or wisdom. To re-establish the balance between the inner and outer worlds is what the Buddha called the middle way, and what Aristotle called the Golden Mean, what Lao Tsu called the silent balance between Yin and Yang.
The animation and deep voice chanting was done by Daniel Schmidt and female voice by Eva Dametto. Also check out the documentary “Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds”.
For those asking how yantra and mantra meditation works… A yantra or mantra is a tool or mechanism for awakening inner energy and consciousness simultaneously. The mantra is simply the audible form of the visual yantra- the two are not separate; it is only our senses that filter the vibratory world. Simply be fully present and conscious, while at the same time removing all resistance to the phenomena you experience (gross and subtle sensations, visuals, sounds, thoughts, emotions, etc.). Do not try to DO anything, think anything or make anything happen, but observe reality as it actually is with a still and unmoving mind. This combination of presence and surrender to what IS, is the essence of meditation.
Pranava was created as part of the film Inner Worlds Outer Worlds. Frequently asked questions about the film and Pranava:
1) Where can I get a particular song or the soundtrack?
A: Much of the music is available for purchase at www.spiritlegend.com on various CD’s. The track “Om Shreen Hreem” is found under “Yoga” in a CD called “Universal Mother”.
2) Can I download the film and upload it to my own Youtube Channel?
A: We whole-heartedly encourage everyone to share the existing Youtube links with their friends, embed on their website, or to create screenings for their community. I’m afraid we cannot allow you to re-upload the film to your own channel for the following reasons:
a) The content itself is copyrighted and is owned by REM Publishing Ltd. Some of the video clips in the film are licensed under certain agreements and cannot be distributed or controlled by third parties.
b) Several individuals have already tried to re-upload the film and to monetize their channel and/or make a profit from selling the film without our permission, or simply to try to build subscribers for their own channel. We don’t always know what people’s true motivation is (and sometimes neither do they).
c) Our channel contains closed captions in many languages and we don’t want versions of the film floating around without these professional translations.
d) When users subscribe to the AwakenTheWorldFilm channel we can provide people future films as we release them. This is just the first of many films and our second is already in the works.
e) Our channel also provides links to our website and Facebook page and the opportunity for people to donate to the Awaken the World initiative. Money/ support is needed to make these films, and while we make them available for free, we really appreciate when people donate, offer translation skills or other support.
If you add the existing Youtube links to a playlist you can still share the film with your friends and viewers and still have it as part of your channel, just do not upload your own version. We greatly appreciate people who feel so strongly about the content that they want to share and spread the film, and hope that you will continue to do so.
3) Where can I find a screening/ workshop/ meditation retreat etc.
A: Check out http://www.samadhi.ca for meditation retreats and materials related to meditation.
