Aquarian Sadhana Format:


                                 Japji: The Song of the Soul

We listen to Japji for 30 minutes. Japji was composed by Guru Nanak Dev (1469-1539). In short, it reveals the mission of human life: Japji is the opening prayer of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh sacred writings. His simple message does not belong to any particular religion, nor any particular time in history. His timeless message experienced in ecstatic song is for all and is as vital today as it was when he first spoke the words from his deep meditative state.

                    What is Sadhana?

"Getting up for sadhana in the morning is a totally selfish act- for personal strength, for personal intuition, for personal sharpness, for personal discipline,     and overall for absolute personal prosperity." --Yogi Bhajan


Preparing for and Concluding

a Kundalini Yoga Session


To Begin

Sit quietly and be with your breath. Consciously slow down the breath and breathe from the belly. Be with the sensations in your body. Tune into your own rhythm. Allow a few minutes to calm down, center yourself and create your own space.

Tuning In

Before beginning Kundalini Yoga practice, always "tune in" by chanting the ADI MANTRA as follows:
Sit in easy pose, or any meditation posture that you find most comfortable, with a straight spine and center yourself with long, deep breathing. Then place the palms together in Prayer Mudra at the Heart Center, fingers pointed up at 60º, base of thumbs pressing against the sternum.


Inhale, focusing at the 3rd Eye Point and the heart and chant,
"ONG NA MO"
("I call on Infinite Creative Consciousness")
while exhaling. The Ong is vibrated in the back of the throat, the cranium and nasal passages. Properly done, it stimulates the pituitary and pineal glands which automatically tunes us into higher consciousness. Ooooooong is long,(o as in oh) Na is short, Moooo (o as in oh) is extended.

This mantra is chanted either on one deep breath, or if you need to you can take a sip of air from the mouth, but do not breathe through the nose between the two parts of the mantra.

"GURU DEV NA MO"
("I call on Divine Wisdom")
Gu and Ru are short. Deeeeeev is extended. Na is short. And Mooo finishes up the breath.



Inhale deeply through the nose before you repeat the mantra. Repeat 2 or more times. The purpose of this mantra is "to tune in." So chant it as many times as you feel you need to get connected. This chant protects and connects us with our higher selves. It also links us with the "Golden Chain" of teachers who brought Kundalini yoga to the world. In other words, our teachers are with us in suble body guiding and helping us.

Ong means Creator, Namo means to call upon, or to greet, Guru is the Teacher or the energy that brings light and dispells the darkness. Dev means transparent or nonphysical.


Subsequently, three times reciting the mantra:

AD GUREE NAMEEH
DJUGAD GUREE NAMEEH
SAT GUREE NAMEEH
SIRI GURU DEVE NAMEEH


Meaning: I associate myself with the wisdom that was always, all by age is the true wisdom, the supreme great wisdom.


Concluding a Set

After a long relaxation, particularly one that follows a series of exercises, you will find that doing the concluding exercises below helps to ground you and bring you back to reality:


1) On your back, begin rotating your feet and bands In small circles. Continue in one direction for 30 seconds, then in the other direction for another 30 seconds.

2) Cat Stretch: Keeping both shoulders and the left leg flat on the ground, bring the right arm back behind the head and the right knee over the left leg till it touches the floor on the far side of the body. Switch legs and arms and repeat the exercise.

  1. 1)Still on your back, bring the knees up and to the sides, and rub the soles of the feet and the palms of the hands together briskly, creating a sensation of heat. Continue for I minute



4) Clasping knees to chest with both hands, begin rolling on the spine. Roll all the way back till the feet touch the ground behind the head, and all the way forward till you're sitting up. Do this 3 or 4 times at least.

(5) Sit up in easy pose, palms together in prayer mudra at the heart center. Eyes are closed. Inhale completely and say a prayer of thanks. Exhale and let the thought go.

(6) A happy conclusion is to sing this song: "May the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you, and the pure light within you, guide your way on". Repeat.

Repeat if you wish. Then chant 3 long Sat Nam's. Saaaaaaaaaat is long and Nam is short.

This exercise will automatically get you to breathe deeply. Keep the eyes closed throughout this and other exercises so that you can feel your body move rhythmically, without visual distractions. Rest on your back for two minutes after the exercise and just enjoy its vitalizing effect!

Benefits: This exercise releases abdominal stress! It gives you an immediate boost of energy throughout your body that lasts well into the day. It also stimulates your thyroid. It allows you to breathe deeper and adds to your energy level. It moves the energy from the lower spine to the upper spine.

Relaxation

Meditation for an Invincible Spirit in 

             the Aquarian Age




 




Yogi Bhajan • February 2, 1992 

Posture: Sit straight. Left hand is in Gyan Mudra, the tip of the forefinger touching the tip of the thumb, resting on the knee with the arm straight.  Raise the right hand to about 12 inches in front of the chest, holding the mantra sheet and concentrating on the written words as you chant. If you don’t have a mantra sheet, angle your hand as if you were reading a sheet of paper, with the palm open and the wrist straight. (Ideally, you would print the mantra on a sheet of paper and read the mantra as you chant. We’ve created a printer friendly version  for you to download.) 

Eyes: Apply Neck Lock and look down the nose to see the mantra sheet or the palm.  When he gave this meditation, he asked us to focus the eyes, to pay attention and not drift. If you do not have the page to read from, use the palm but continue to focus. 

 

Mantra: Focus on the movement of the tongue and the sensation of the sound as it creates a time and space. Sing with Nirinjan Kaur’s Aquarian March. Become a symphony. 7 Minutes (27  Minutes for a 31‐Minute Practice) 

Continue chanting, close your eyes and put your hands on your heart, one palm resting 

on the other. Press the hands firmly into the chest. Press hard. 2 Minutes 

Keep your hands on the heart and begin to whisper the mantra. Whisper powerfully. 

1 Minute 

To Close: Chant without the music for 30 seconds. Inhale, exhale and relax.

Siri Akal  Great Undying One Who Knows No Death 

Maha Akal  Infinite Who Is Deathless

Akal Moort   Embodied Form or Image of the Infinite 

Wahe Guru  The Ecstatic Totality of God and Existence 

 

Note: “Great” still has a touch of finiteness; “Infinite” in Maha has no finiteness or form. 

Mantra is pronounced: Sat Siree, Siree Akaal, Siree Akaal, Mahaa Akaal, Mahaa Akaal, Sat 

Naam, Akaal Moorat, Wha‐hay Guroo. See Tools for Students/Teachers at 

www.kundaliniresearchinstitute.org to hear the pronunciation.  

Time: 11–31 Minutes  

Comments: In the face of any great change, we confront three destructive impulses:  to be 

alone and withdrawn, to deny or fantasize about the future that’s coming, and to live with 

greed or scarcity instead of prosperity.  This mantra counters these three tendencies and instills 

the mind with courage and caliber.

Meditation for Atomic Radiation, Anti-Radiation Drink, and Therapeutic Baths



















Yogi Bhajan taught a Meditation for Atomic Radiation on May 17, 1978.  He also gave an Anti-Radiation Juice recipe to Tarn Taran Kaur during the time of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. We’ve also included Therapeutic Bath instructions for decreasing radiaton levels. This is all useful information for those of us who live in areas high in ‘natural’ radiation as well as those in Japan in the disaster area. 

Our dear sister, Tarn Taran Kaur, just sent us this note about dealing with radiation:

“In 1986 when the Chernobyl nuclear disaster occurred we were living in Hamburg, Germany. The winds carried the radiation west. I called Yogi Bhajan directly and he gave us this recipe:
Anti-Radiation Juice
Drink 3 glasses daily: 1 part pineapple juice, 1 part tomato juice, 1 part apple juice

The best foods to eat after radiation exposure are:
Seaweed and Miso in various forms. Also beets, carrots, onions, and garlic. Since the radiation may be on the fresh plants, sprout seeds and beans to replace fresh greens.

We practiced the Radiation Meditation diligently.

It is very important to keep the immune and nervous systems strong. Therefore keep up with yoga and meditation. Some of us were so occupied with helping others that we exhausted ourselves….don’t make that mistake. So please also take care of yourselves, stay healthy, and sleep adequately.

Our love and prayers are with you.

Humbly,

Tarn Taran Kaur”

___________________________________________

Therapeutic baths can also be helpful for decreasing radiation levels and eliminating toxins.

Therapeutic Baths for Elimination of Radiation, Chemicals, and Metals

By Dr. Linda Lancaster

Therapeutic baths are utilized to cleanse and neutralize many types of pollutants.

  1. Baths should be taken in water as hot as you can handle without feeling faint.

  2. During the period of soaking, the toxins are drawn to the surface of the skin.

  3. As the water cools to slightly below body temperature, osmotic exchange of fluids takes place and the toxins are drawn out of the body and into the tub of water.

  4. If you have high blood pressure or heart weakness, do not make the bath too hot, and check with your doctor beforehand.

Sea Salt and Baking Soda Bath: For most types of Radiation

Pour one pound of pure salt and one pound of baking soda into the tub of hot water. Use sea salt or kosher salt—check the label to make sure there are not any additives. Soak in the tub for 20-30 minutes or until the water cools.

Baking Soda Bath: For Man-Made Radiations such as Barium Tests and Ingested Radioactive Isotopes

Pour two pounds of baking soda into a full tub of hot water. Soak in the tub for 20-30 minutes until the water cools.

Clorox Bath: For Elimination of Chemicals and Metals

Pour 1/2 cup of Clorox into the full tub of hot water. Soak in the tub for 20-30 minutes or until the water cools. Use only Clorox brand bleach. Do not use Fresh Scent or powdered bleach or any other brand.

Apple Cidar Vinegar Bath: For Elimination of Uric Acid Deposits and some Chemicals

Pour one quart of apple cider vinegar into a tub of hot water. Soak in the tub for 30 minutes. Sweating sometimes occurs.

Conquer Self-Animosity

Hari Kirin Kaur, author of Art and Yoga: Kundalini Awakening in Everyday life, leads a meditation originally taught by Yogi Bhajan to conquer self-animosity.

Meditation in der Schwangerschaft


Adi Shakti – Meditation auf die weibliche Schöpfungsenergie

Die Göttin in jeder Frau – Adi Shakti

Die Adi Shakti ist die Urkraft der Schöpfung, eine alles gestaltende Kraft. Frausein ist die Manifestation dieser Kraft auf der Erde. Jede Frau, egal welche Lebensplanung sie hat, ist auf existentielle Weise mit dieser Kraft verbunden. In jeder Frau wirkt diese Kraft in Form von Kreativität, Intuition, Anmut, Mitgefühl und Inspiration, etwas wachsen zu lassen, Unterstützung zu geben, zu reflektieren und zu erheben.

Um sich mit dieser Kraft zu verbinden, wird jeder Frau – ganz besonders während der Schwangerschaft – folgende Meditation empfohlen:

Adi Shakti Adi Shakti Adi Shakti Namo Namo

Ich rufe die ursprüngliche weibliche Energie an.

Sereb Shakti Sereb Shakti Sereb Shakti Namo Namo

Ich rufe die allumfassende und universelle Energie an.

Pritam Bhagwati Pritam Bhagwati Pritam Bhagwati Namo Namo

Ich rufe die schöpferische Kraft an, durch die Gott erschafft.

Kundalini Mata Shakti Mata Shakti Namo Namo

Ich rufe die kreative Kraft der ursprünglichen kreativen Energie der göttlichen Mutter an.


Sitze in einfacher Haltung, winkle deine Arme an, so dass deine Hände auf Höhe des Herzchakras mit einem Abstand von 7 cm voneinander parallel zum Boden sind. Die linke Hand ist über deiner rechten Hand, deine Handflächen zeigen nach unten. Deine Augen sind geschlossen. Singe das  Mantra.

Diese Meditation stärkt deine weibliche Seite und verbindet dich mit der urweiblichen Shakti-Energie. Sie gleicht die materiellen und spirituellen Anteile deines Lebens aus. In den alten Lehren heißt es, wenn die werdende Mutter in der Schwangerschaft täglich 11 Minuten diese Meditation macht, gleicht das bei einem Jungen im Mutterleib die beiden Gehirnhälften aus. Er kann sich dadurch besser mit seiner intuitiven Seite verbinden. Ein Mädchen nimmt seine Weiblichkeit bewusster wahr und lebt sie selbstverstä

Eine schöne Version des Mantras findest Du auf der CD von Snatam Kaur “Divine Birth”.

Within Kundalini yoga, it is suggested to maintain focus on a practice for periods of 40, 90, 120, or 1,000 days.

40 days...changes a habit

90 days...confirms a new habit

120 days...the new habit is who you are

1,000 days...mastery of the new habit


                       The Primal Sound


We will begin our first 11 Day Global Sadhana, a special format for a special time, on December 21st, 2012 and practice this meditation together every day until December 31, 2012.  Nirinjan Kaur, a life-long student of Yogi Bhajan, will guide us through a variation of the Antar Naad Mudra.  This meditation, originally taught in 1993 by Yogi Bhajan, is a key to opening the flow of the Kundalini.  The meditation gives you a new awareness and authority to make the right decisions to "conquer the ugliness of life".  It will help you become peaceful and secure during challenging times.  The mantra is a key mantra to understanding all other mantras.  The original practice of mantra required a mastery of this mantra before any other mantra was attempted.  It will open your chakras to total receptivity to all of your other practices, literally giving a strong foundation for the new age that you can build upon.

In this meditation, Nirinjan is teaching a Celestial Communication variation of this mudra.  Sometimes called the Antar Naad Meditation for the Full Moon, it is especially power during the full moon (which will occur during the sadhana), but can be done at any time.

Complete Mantra:

Mantra:

Sa Re Sa Sa

Sa Re Sa Sa

Sa Re Sa Sa Sa Rung

Har Re Har Har

Har Re Har Har

Har Re Har Har Har Rung 


Translation:

That Infinite Totality is here, everywhere. That creativity of God is here, everywhere.


Saa is the Infinite, the Totality, God. It is the element of ether. It is the origin, the beginning, and it contains all other effects. It is subtle and beyond. Har is the creativity of the Earth. It is the dense element, the power of manifestation, the tangible, the personal.

These sounds are woven together and then projected through the sound of ung or complete Totality. This is the base mantra of all mantras. Adversity melts before this mantra. It gives you the capacity of effective communication so your words contain mastery and impact. This mantra helps you conquer the wisdom of the past, present, and future. It brings you peace and prosperity even if it wasn't in your destiny.

This mantra takes away negativity from within oneself awakening the Infinite Creative energy to burn away obstacles to achieving higher consciousness.


About this mantra it is written, "The esoteric structure of the mantra is coded in the qualities each of the sounds represent, and the rhythm that weaves them together into a coherent and powerful effect.  Sa means the Infinite, the totality, God.  It is the element of Ether.  It initiates and contains all other effects.  It is subtle and beyond.  Har is the creativity of the earth.  It is the dense element.  It is the power of manifestation, the tangible, the personal.  These sounds are women together then projected through the sound of Ung, or complete totality, like the original sound Om or Ong."

To do this meditation:

Put the hands flat together in Prayer Pose at the navel point.  As the mantra starts with Sa Re Sa Sa start to bring the palms up the center front of the torso, about 4-6 inches in front of the body.  As you pass the Heart Center, begin to open the hand mudra to make an open lotus, by the time it reaches the level of the Brow Point.  The open lotus has the base of the palms together, the little fingertips touch, the thumb tips touch, and the rest of the fingers are spread open.  As the mantra beings Har Re Har Har turn the fingers to point down, with the back of the hands touching -- it is reverse Prayer Pose.  Slowly bring this mudra down the chakras in rhythm with the music until the fingertips reach the Navel Point on the sounds Ha Rung.  Then turn them around and being again.
