MANTRAS

Why sing mantras in a group?

"The concert is an occasion for people to become awakened to the power of mantra,” she says; “to fall in love with mantras and  experience them in the purest form that we can present. With these concerts, I hope to connect with people so that they get a sense of light and love. That is so important these days, with the political climate and environmental challenges we face. I know for myself that chanting together in these settings is super healing and super powerful for relieving stress, tension and that feeling of being overwhelmed that I think is pretty common for all of us in this day and age. It’s a way for people to come and find that sense of peace again" ~ Snatam Kaur

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna

What is the Hare Krishna mantra?

Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare

Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare

The word "mantra" means to deliver or free the mind. The word "Hare" refers to the divine feminine potency of God. "Krishna" means the all-attractive one, and "Rama" is the reservoir of all pleasure.

Hare Krishnas believe that the sound vibration of the mantra has a direct impact on the soul. According to a philosophy of ancient India, the soul is spiritually asleep. Just as an alarm clock awakes a sleeping person, the Hare Krishna mantra awakens the soul to its spiritual reality — whereby it can experience its eternal connection with Krishna or God. And devotees believe that a person need not understand the language of the mantra, because the sound vibration transcends the sensual, mental and intellectual levels of consciousness and puts one directly in touch with the spiritual.

When one is chanting the maha-mantra, one is saying: “O Krishna ! ... Krishna means the all attractive personality of Godhead, Rama means the reservoir of all pleasure, and Hare is the name of Srimati Radharani. It is the calling out to Sri Radharani who steals the heart of Krishna by Her infinite love and devotion.

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna

The Hare Krishna Mantra by George Harrison and London Radha-Krishna Temple devotees

George: You don’t get it in five minutes. It’s something that takes time, but it works because it’s a direct process of attaining God and will help us to have pure consciousness and good perception that is above the normal, everyday state of consciousness.

George: Going to a temple or chanting with a group of other people–the vibration is that much stronger.

What’s the difference between chanting Hare Krishna and meditation?

George: It’s really the same sort of thing as meditation, but I think it has a quicker effect. I mean, even if you put your beads down, you can still say the mantra or sing it without actually keeping track on your beads. One of the main differences between silent meditation and chanting is that silent meditation is rather dependent on concentration, but when you chant, it’s more of a direct connection with God.

If you open up your heart
You will know what I mean
We’ve been polluted so long
But here’s a way for you to get clean

By chanting the names of the Lord and you’ll be free
The Lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see.

“Awaiting On You All” from the album All things Must Pass

Mul Mantra

Ek Ong Kar
Sat Nam
Kartaa Purkh Nirbhao Nirvair
Akaal Moorat
Ajoonee, Saibhang, Gur Prasaad

Aad Sach, Jugaad Sach
Hai Bhee Sach,
Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach

Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach

Ek Ong Kar
Sat Nam
Kartaa Purkh Nirbhao Nirvair
Akaal Moorat
Ajoonee, Saibhang Gur Prasaad

Aad Sach, Jugaad Sach
Hai Bhee Sach,
Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach

Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach

Translation: One Creator. Truth is His name. Doer of everything. Fearless, Revengeless, Undying, Unborn, Self illumined, The Guru's gift, Meditate! True in the beginning. True through all the ages. True even now. Oh Nanak it is forever true.

The Mul Mantra translates as the root mantra from which a spiritual foundation is built.

Yogi Bhajan says on chanting the Mul Mantra:

"The Mul Mantra is a fate killer. It removes the fate and changes the destiny to complete prosperity."

Osho translates the Mool Mantra as:

"He is one, He is Ongkar, the supreme truth. He is the creator, beyond fear, beyond rancor. He is the timeless form, never born, self- creating. He is attained by the guru's grace. He was truth before the ages and as time ran its course. Nanak says now is he truth eternal and forever will he be."

The Power of the Mul Mantra

This mantra was given to us by Guru Nanak, the first Guru of the Sikhs who walked this earth in the fifteenth century. It is a mantra that gives you the compass so that you may find your true self. This true self sits within the opening of your heart. Some say that the most difficult journey in life is moving from the energy of the navel center to the heart center.

The navel center is very important especially in its balanced state. The navel in a balanced state gives you the fire of courage to stand up for truth. It gives you the capacity to know your center, to be rooted in your inner truth. It gives you the basic energy of digestion… both in how we digest food, but also in how we digest energy. One beautiful teacher, Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati once said to me, “I eat pain for breakfast” referring to the energy that she dealt with after spending time with AIDS patients. Emotional or mental pain is a part of living life, especially for someone on a spiritual path. The drug companies and popular media make you believe that one should not have pain this kind of pain. Take a pill. Do something to shut yourself off. But the moment you go through the pain, the moment you digest it so to speak… you allow it to be… you embrace it… then that pain is healed forever and released. This takes a balanced navel center.

When our navel center is in an imbalanced state we are greedy, looking to acquire things and energy that we don’t really need. We look to fill up an abyss within that can never be filled. That abyss comes from all of the pain that we haven’t figured out how to digest. This energy I believe is prevalent in the world today. What is the remedy to bring us back into a balanced navel center which allows our heart to open? How can we be fulfilled without needing things from the outside? How can we find a simpler more sustainable way to live on this planet?

There are many tools to do just these things. A very powerful mantra tool is the Mul Mantra.

Here is the mantra with the translation.

Ek ong kaar….
God is One, I am One with all beings

Sat Nam…
Truth is God’s Name… The vibration of God’s Name is what created all beings…. that vibration is within me…. therefore in my core I am true.

Karta Purkh…
God is the Doer…. God does all things… God works through me…. God works through everyone in my life.

Nirbhao…
God is fearless… I am fearless.

Nirvair…
God has no revenge…. I exist in my heart… I stay present… I don’t hold on to the past…. I live in this moment in full compassion and acceptance of what is.

Akal Murat
God exists in the undying form… God is in the purity of our efforts to live in a spiritual way, and these efforts never die… these efforts live on forever.

Adjoonee
God is unborn…. God does not relate to birth and death…. God is beyond the cycles of life…. God is infinite… I am infinite

Saibhang
God is self illumined… I am self illumined. Within me I have the power to find light, to find love, to find joy. I don’t need anyone or anything for this.

Guru Prasaad
It is by Guru’s Grace…. it is the Grace of the teachings of the Divine One…. the Guru…. Guru Nanak, Jesus, Mohammed, the Masters of all traditions that give us Grace.

Jap
Meditate!

Aad Sach
True in the Beginning

Jugaad Sach
True throughout the ages

Haibhee Sach
True here and now

Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach
Oh Nanak, forever and always true. Spirit, Truth, Love, and Light…. these are the things that are true, that have always been true.

This is the Mul Mantra….

Let us chant it together.

Let us let go of the dream… and find the reality of our truth.

We can be free.

Sat Nam.


Oneness Of Heart Meditation - Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung

Ra Ma Da Sa, Sa Say So Hung is the mantra for the sacred healing meditation first taught in the Summer of 1973. This healing meditation is used to pray for healing energy for our friends, family, and ourselves. This mantra taps into the energies of the sun, moon, earth, and the Infinite Spirit to bring deep healing. Chant it when you want to send healing energy to a loved one or need healing yourself.

It was also practiced at every White Tantric Yoga® Course following Yogi Bhajan.

Kundalini Yoga practitioners have been using this meditation for the last four and a half decades. Try it when you want to send healing energy to a loved one or need healing yourself.
Practicing the mudra and the mantra properly will optimize the energy flow and will make this meditation all the more potent.

Yogi Bhajan taught this meditation on September 11, 2001. On that day he said, in part, “This whole thing has hurt every American. Whether we like it or not, there shall be a reaction. Don’t become victim to that reaction. It has to happen. World shall act insane. There’s no sanity in what has happened. Nobody among you could believe that this would happen. Still it has happened. Unknowingly, people are attacked personally, collectively and nationally for no reason. We should send the healing energy to those who are still in pain. We should show our oneness of heart.”

Instructions:
Sit comfortably.  Bring the hands to the heart center in prayer mudra.  Eyes are closed.  The breath will come naturally.

Mantra Translation:
RA:  sun energy
MA:  moon energy
DA:  earth energy
SA:  infinity, universal energy
SA:  repeat in second half of mantra
SAY:  the personal embodiment of Sa
SO:  he personal sense of merger with Sa
HUNG:  Infinite, vibrating and real

The mantra literally means, “I am Thou.”
It is also used to mean, “The service of God is within me.”

Time:
Chant this mantra with total sincerity. Chant for 11 minutes singing with a full voice, then for 5 minutes in a whisper and then for 1 minute in silence.

To End:
Inhale deeply, hold and give this breath to those who need it. Exhale and relax.

Posture: Sit in Easy Pose (sitting on the floor, with legs crossed) or in a chair with feet planted firmly on the ground, with the spine straight, and a light Neck Lock applied (chin pulled back slightly).

Mudra: The mudra (hand position) is most important. The elbows are bent down by the sides, and are tucked comfortably but firmly against the ribs. The forearms are almost perpendicular to the floor, with the hands extended out at a 45 degree angle from the center of the body. Most importantly, the palms are perfectly flat, facing up, hands bent back at the wrists. You should feel a pull in the lowest part of your forearm as you almost hyper-extend your wrist to make the palms flat. (This tends to be the most challenging part of the meditation so it is important not to let the hands relax out of the position.) The fingers are kept side by side, except that the thumb is spread from the other four fingers.

Kundalini Yoga. Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung (13:33)

This mantra taps into the energies of the sun, moon, earth, and the Infinite Spirit to bring deep healing. It is important to pull the navel point powerfully on the first Sa and on Hung. Note that the word Hung is not long and drawn out. Rather, it is clipped off forcefully as you pull in the navel. Chant one complete cycle of the entire mantra with each breath. Then deeply inhale and repeat. Remember to move the mouth precisely with each sound. Try to feel the resonance in the mouth and in the sinus area.

Mental Focus: You can choose to mentally visualize the person or persons that you are wanting to heal, as you send this energy to them for their well­-being.

Time: Continue chanting for 11 to 31 minutes.

To End: To end the meditation, inhale deeply and hold the breath, as you offer a healing prayer.   Visualize the person you wish to heal as being totally healthy, radiant, and strong.  See the person completely engulfed in a healing white light and completely healed.  Then exhale and inhale deeply again, hold the breath, and offer the same prayer again.  Exhale.

To complete, inhale deeply, stretch your arms up high, and vigorously shake out your hands and fingers for several seconds.  Keep the arms up and hands shaking as you exhale.  Repeat two more times and relax.
