According to Hans Cousto, the Paiste Sun Gong tone represents for him “a door from one world into another.” Cousto says with this tone you are helped to “exit from the known, mechanistic, and physical world…” and can enter ” a new world– a magic world.” Because of his calculations being based on the speed of light, he suggests that meditation to this tone “will lead the listener to a state beyond good and bad, shame and guilt, beyond space and time, knowledge and wisdom, action and rest, being and non-being.” Find your space with this gong, and he feels you will get beyond space, and this frequency can lead to a place out of duality, where you are reunited with the Creator.
The Earth Gong sounds deep, like vibrations from the womb of Mother Earth. When we play gently and carefully, the choral overtones turn into a beautiful song. The sound transforms from the ethereal to the material realms, tangible and full. It emerges like lava from inside the volcano.
The element of Earth is associated with the plane of material existence, the condensation of spirit into concrete form.
The Air (Cosmo) Gong creates beautiful, ethereal sounds at the midrange. The nature of the sounds are bright, crystalline and pleasant like floating in rich cosmic chords. This is one of the most universal gongs.
