HU is the sound behind all sounds. Chanting HU can open your heart, helping you to find peace, expand your awareness, and gain a higher perspective on daily problems. A great way to learn about the HU is to try it out and experience it for yourself.

     “Singing HU has been practiced for thousands of years in one form or another for inner attunement. In the same way a musician can use a tuning fork to find the right pitch, the person singing HU tunes in to a higher spiritual awareness.”

All are welcome to join any of the many HU Chants held at the Vermont Eckankar Center in Burlington and at other locations throughout Vermont. Each HU Chants lasts about twenty minutes. The HU chant is followed by a brief silent contemplation and time for spiritual conversation (often with some healthy homemade goodies).

An Invitation to Sing HU

You are invited to try this simple spiritual exercise. It has helped people of many different faiths open their hearts more fully to the uplifting presence of God.

To do the exercise, first get comfortable. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Next, gently put your attention on your inner visual screen, where daydreams and images come to you.

With your eyes closed, sing HU (pronounced like the word hue) as a song of love. You may notice a feeling of peace, warmth, and comfort. You may also recognize the presence of the Divine through greater spiritual insights into your daily life. There are many ways to experience the love of God.

When you sing HU and sit in quiet contemplation, you might also perceive the inner Light and Sound. The Light may appear as brightness or colors on your inner visual screen. The Sound may be musical or the sounds of nature, such as the wind or the ocean. However you experience the presence of God, it is bringing you a broader understanding of the life you lead.
