Virat Dharana is an ancient practice of meditation that involves supine (lying down) observation of the body guided through chanting in the Indian language of Sanskrit, in which Yoga has been traditionally preserved. 

During the practice, the Sanskrit words are also translated into English as one takes attention through each part of the body. This is one of the oldest forms of meditation in India, distinct from a Yoga Nidra because of the significance of the sound and its effect on every cell in the body. The chanting is known as ‘the sound of silence’ because it enables the listener to experience profound silence in mind and body. The technique is a lying down meditation technique and it is proven to reverse the symptoms of stress and strain. It works to bring harmony and balance to the chaotic nature of the cellular structure and teaches us how to silence the intellect. The technique promotes less struggle, less explanation and very positive effects.

The chanting is subtle and precise and has to be developed over many decades of in-depth training in the ancient traditions of meditation where it has been perfectly preserved by lineages of monks over thousands of years. We are very fortunate to have the guided Virat Dharana recordings of renowned Yogi, Dr Kumar who conveys deep silence in every syllable. It is the pure and silent quality of his mind and expertise in chanting that enables the listener to experience such deep peace when practicing. To read more about Dr Kumar please visit:

The technique has a precious lineage – it has been protected and preserved for thousands of years and is now being offered to the Community of Cornwall and being taught by Anna Sadler and Steve Braund. 

Anna will be teaching Virat Dharana to students who are attending the 8 Week Advanced Meditation Course. It will be taught to meditators who have completed an 8 Week Beginners Meditation course and have a daily practice or are willing to start one. For more information, please see the link below:
