There are a number of themes that are very familiar to
people who practise Buddhist meditation: ‘mindfulness of
breathing’, where you focus on the rhythm of the breath;
‘walking meditation’, that revolves around the feeling of the
footsteps as you walk up and down a path; the internal repetition
of a mantra, such as ‘Bud-dho’ – these are all designed to help
ground the attention in the presence of this very moment, this
present reality.
Along with these more well-known methods there are
many others that can serve a similar function. One of these is
known as ‘inner listening’ or ‘meditation on the inner sound’
or, in Sanskrit, ‘nada yoga’. These terms all refer to attending to
what has been called ‘the sound of silence’, or ‘the nada-sound’.
‘Nada’ is the Sanskrit word for ‘sound’ as well as being the
Spanish word for ‘nothing’ – an interesting and accidentally
meaningful coincidence.
