Usually associated with:
Gamma waves
30 to 70 Hz
Processing of various attended stimuli (visual, auditory,
touch) and the grouping of the various features of a given
stimulus, particularly visual, into a coherent whole.
Important points about Gamma Waves :
(1) There is no such thing as a gamma state of mind.
Gamma waves largely play a supporting though integral-
role in the brain. From an EEG point of view, they will be
present mostly while a subject is awake, but they will always
be supported by other waves in the beta, alpha, theta, or
delta ranges.
2) They have been noted during Buddhist meditation of
compassion & music listening experiments.
Beta waves 13 to 30 Hz
Associated with attentiveness, selective attention,
concentration & anticipation. They have been related to
concentrated mental activity such as solving math problems,
anxiety, and apprehension.
Important points about Beta Waves
: (1) These are the waves of alertness, wakeful state. Most
common and most prevalent in the brain. If you are alert and
awake, you are in Beta now.
(2) In meditation, beta waves have been noticed only in very
experienced practitioners that too in a state of ecstasy and
concentration.
Alpha waves
7 to 13 Hz
Associated with relaxed wakefulness, and creative thought
where attention may wander and free association is favored.
They are also correlated with a generally tranquil, pleasant,
almost floating feeling.
Important points about Alpha Waves :
(1) Considered as the brainwaves of meditation. Most
prominent during meditation.
(2) Considered as an integral part of the relaxation process
before sleep. The alpha frequency band has been studied
extensively in meditations of various kinds (like Zen, TM etc)
and in almost all cases an increase in the alpha waves has
been noted during meditation.
(3) Use of Cannabis (marijuana) has also been linked to an

All the above mentioned five brainwave frequencies are normally present together in the
brain. However, the dominant frequency in the EEG pattern determines what shall be
called the current state of the brain. If the amplitude of the alpha range frequencies is
highest, then the brain is said to be in the alpha stage. Note, that other frequencies still
exist and it is impossible to give any "exact frequency your brain is operating on." However,
for simplification purpose, it is often assumed that such a single frequency exists.
In general, we are accustomed to using the beta brain rhythm. When we diminish the
brain rhythm to alpha, we put ourselves in the ideal condition to learn new information,
keep facts, perform elaborate tasks, learn languages and analyze complex situations etc.
Meditation, relaxation exercises, and activities that enable the sense of calm, also enable
this alpha state.
As is evident from the above table, these 5 brainwaves produce different type of
feelings and state of consciousness in people. A person, who is in meditation, can
have any experience related to alpha, theta or delta brainwaves. From this we can draw a
very interesting corollary.
When a person meditates, he finds himself in a relaxed and clam state. On a brainwave
level he reaches alpha state of consciousness. As the meditation deepens he finds himself
more calm and focused and his brainwave levels reaches to theta (and finally to delta)
state.
So if a person is not able to meditate owing to some reasons, cant we induce some extra
stimulus in his brain to make him reach an alpha or theta level? If we can do this by using
some method, we will be able to make that person calm and serene by altering his
brainwave level to an alpha, theta or delta level. This way the person will experience the
same kind of feelings as he would do on meditating in a traditional way.

increase in alpha waves in brain. Thats why many people
love the high they got from using drugs.
Theta waves 4 to 7 Hz
Associated with Dreams, deep meditation, hypnosis and,
sleep, meditation, and hypnosis. Seemed to be involved
with short-term memory. It is a state of somnolence with
reduced consciousness. The theta-state is described by
sleep researchers as stage 1 sleep or the twilight state. In
this states subjects pass out of the alert alpha-state into a
theta-state in which they lose their sense of lying in bed,
though still being awake.
Important points about Theta Waves :
(1) Subjects can be easily awoken from this stage of sleep,
and it has many interesting properties. For a brief time as
we lie in bed at night, neither fully awake nor yet asleep, we
pass through a twilight mental zone like a state of reverie.
Many people associate this drowsy stage with hallucinatory
images, more fleeting and disjointed than dreams, and
compare it to the viewing of a speeded-up, jerky series of
photographic slides. A host of artists and scientists have
credited the imagery of this twilight state with creative
solutions and inspiration for their work.
(2) This theta stage is also observed in people under
hypnosis.
Delta waves
1 to 4 Hz
Associated with deep dreamless sleep. Consistently
observed in deep sleep. The deeper the sleep, the higher is
the amount of delta waves.
Important points about Delta Waves :
(1) Meditative states associated with the increased
presence of delta waves seem to occur mostly in very
experienced practitioners, possibly because entering a delta
state and maintaining consciousness at the same time is
tremendously difficult.
(2) Also related wit the state of Samadhi, the deepest state
in meditation as appeared in ancient Indian Yoga text.

This in one way means, an end to the meditation ritual. An end to our vows of not finding
enough time for meditation or our inability to maintain a regular meditation routine.
Extending the same corollary, the similar effect of a hypnotic state, deep sleep, relaxation
etc can also be produced using external stimulus.
So is it possible to bypass meditation altogether and adopt a quick and fast
way to achieve a desired brainwave ?
Well the answer is yes and no.
Yes. It is possible to bypass meditation and use an automatic tool to achieve a meditative
state. In is very much possible to achieve a Non Ordinary State of Consciousness (NOSC)
using the methods you will learn in this section.
However, having said that, I also want to clarify that on the basis of my long experience as
a practitioner of traditional meditation techniques, I can say with full confidence that no
machine, no matter how much powerful or fast it is, can ever make the traditional methods
of meditation needless. The human brain is one of the most complicated and mysterious
things in the world. We have just explored a very little of our brain. Still we are far from
understanding the functioning of the human brain. Though many studies have been made
with very positive results indeed, it will be too early to say that meditation is nothing but a
change in our brainwaves. Brainwaves level are just one indicator of what actually happens
in meditation. Though with the help of using brainwaves you can attain a meditative state
for you immediate benefits, for a long and permanent spiritual growth you will need to stick
to a traditional meditation path. Binaural Beats shall provide you some excellent results
often instantly which will help you in many ways. However, for a permanent life changing
spiritual focus, you need to use traditional meditation methods as your primary tools. (For
more information kindly read chapters in Meditation Corner.) Here we shall stick to the
concept of instant meditation and Binaural Beats.
Let us understand now, how we can alter our brainwaves to produce a Non Ordinary State
of Consciousness (NOSC). It has been scientifically proven that brainwaves frequency in
our brain can be altered to a desired frequency using specialized sound waves.
In other words, using specialized sound waves as external stimuli, we can alter our
brainwaves frequency to an alpha, beta, theta or delta level which are considered as the
brainwave levels of meditation and other spiritual phenomena.
In order to understand how brainwaves are altered, we need to answer two
questions :
(1) How any external sound can alter our brain wave frequency? We listen so many
sound everyday. All of them must have an effect on our brainwave. Then how come
a particular sound of a particular frequency will bring change in our brainwave's
frequency?
(2) The frequency of alpha, beta, theta and delta are in the range of 1 to 30 Hz
whereas human ears are capable of listening to sounds only within the frequency
range from 20 to 20,000Hz . So how can we listen an external sound that produce an
effect within 1 to 20 Hz to attain alpha, theta or delta level of conscious?
Let us discuss both these questions.
