Vaikhri Bani is uttering Naam with your mouth causing vibration in your vocal chords and in surrounding air. The attention/dhyan is focused externally.

Madhyama Bani is chanting softly localised in the throat area where your vocal chords are. It is called madhyama which means middle because attention/dhyan is half outer and half inner. The Naam vibration begins to go from outside to inside.

Pasyanti Bani means seeing, this occurs in the heart, it is chanting Naam in the imagination. It is a visualisation that is internal - attention/dhyan is totally inner. The Naam vibration has passed the madhyama/middle and is now vibrating on the inner plane of imagination. As you carry on practicing, the Naam vibration begins to grow and cleans the imagination which has a lot of Sh*t in it. 

Para Bani is beyond everything it is Oankaar.

Only thing i wished gyani ji talked about dyan, dhyata, dhaie aspect or stage and gyan, gayta, gaie aspect/stage in detailed. Also in the videos its been presented these are stages only that one has to go through each of them. Whilst from stage perspective these are true but from different aspect of meditation this is lot more deeper. From aspect of meditation perspective, one does not need go through stages as from absolute point of view at each and every moment- turiya (non dual pure awareness/knowledge) is inherently present within all of us. From gyan perspective, they don't occur in a linear fashion one after the other. They are always there exactly at the same time
