KUNDALINI YOGA MANTRAS USED IN CLASS
These are the most frequently used mantras in the practice. People new to the practice quickly learn that chanting mantra is not singing, it’s vibrating sound to create a quantum resonance. In Kundalini Yoga we use mantra to open our higher awareness. Think of it as dialing a security code… you punch in a code and the door opens. Energy vibrates so when you vibrate mantra, you open flows of energy through the mind. <DOWNLOAD>
ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO
Known as The Adi Mantra, it’s the mantra we use to tune in at the beginning of class. (at least three repetitions) The mantra vibrates the mind and tunes the whole system in to the wisdom that’s brought about by meditation.
ONG = Creativity of the universe coming into form
NAMO = to bow (infinitely – to the formless consciousness)
GURU DEV = The subtle force of the teacher within (gu=darkness, ru=light; Guru is that force that brings you out of the dark into the light)
NAMO = to bow (to the finite– to the form, yourself and the other)
AAD GURAY NAMEH
This optional, second chant after the Adi Mantra above, is a protective mantra. Its sound current creates a buffer of light around the person chanting it.
AAD GURAY NAMEH = I bow to the primal wisdom
JUGAD GURAY NAMEH = I bow to the all encompassing power and energy
SAT GURAY NAMEH = I bow to that through which God creates
SIRI GURU DEV EH NAMEH = I bow to the creative power of the kundalini, the divine mother power.
LONG TIME SUN
At the end of class we sing The Long Time Sun. The words are:
May the long time sun shine upon you
All love surround you
And the pure light within you
Guide your way on
Sat Nam vibrates in you the highest, universal truth.
SAT= Truth (universal)
NAM = Identity (Applied identity– individual and universal, from finite to infinite and back)
