OSHO Nadabrahma Meditation

A Humming Meditation to Balance Both Halves of the Brain

OSHO Nadabrahma Meditation

A Humming Meditation to Balance Both Halves of the Brain

Nadabrahma is the humming meditation – through humming and hand movements, conflicting parts of you start falling in tune, and you bring harmony to your whole being. Then, with body and mind totally together, you “slip out of their hold” and become a witness to both. This watching from the outside is what brings peace, silence and bliss.


Osho recommends having an empty stomach and doing nothing for at least 15 minutes after the meditation.


Osho explains, “While you are practicing the Nadabrahma meditation, remember that your body and mind become totally one with each other. And remember to always keep observing. Withdraw from body and mind quietly and gradually through the back door - without fighting either. Let the body be and you yourself disappear and observe from outside. "

Music for the Osho Nadabrahma meditation

The OSHO Nadabrahma Meditation lasts one hour and has three stages. Osho derived it from an ancient Tibetan technique. It is done while sitting and can be done at any time of the day or at night alone or with others. Your eyes remain closed throughout.

First phase (30 min): Loud humming

Sit in a relaxed position with your eyes and your mouth closed. Start humming, loud enough so that if others are around, they can still hear it. Hum loud enough that you can feel the vibration making your body vibrate. Let the body and mind fill with these vibrations. This creates a vibration in your whole body. You can imagine a tube or an empty vessel that is completely filled with the vibrations of humming.

There is no special breathing technique in this meditation, you can change your pitch and also move your body gently if you feel like it.  


There comes a moment when the hum happens by itself and you just listen. You become the listener.

Second phase (15 min): Circular arm movements

The second phase is divided into two parts of seven and a half minutes each. 

Stop humming. Bring your hands palms up in front of your belly. Move them forward very slowly. Then the hands separate and make two large circles to the right and left.

When you get back to your belly, make new circles in a circular motion away from your body. The movement should be so slow that you think they weren't moving at all. Feel how you give your energy to the universe.

After seven and a half minutes (here the music stops for a moment) turn your hands - the palms are now facing down - and move your hands in the opposite direction.

The starting point is again the navel region, but now the hands go apart from there on both sides of the body. Feel yourself absorbing energy. As in the first phase, you can allow slight body movements.

Third phase (15 min): Sit quietly and relaxed

Sit relaxed, still, and watch what happens inside and out.
