We just wrapped up Sat Nam Fest Joshua Tree 2017, and our hearts are singing from the heart-opening connections made with our soul family from all over the world as we gathered together in the spirit of Oneness. It was so beautiful to participate in the growth and transformation of every Sat Nam Fest participant during our time together.
The fourth practice we would like to share in this Yoga on the Go! series is a meditation, with a mudra, visual focus and a rhythm of the breath. Don’t forget to tune-in with the Adi Mantra before you begin!
Wondering what we will chant during our morning mediations (known as sadhana)?
“In other words, as you vibrate, the Universe vibrates with you.” –Yogi Bhajan
Chanting is a pleasure that transcends the senses, it takes us beyond the bounds of time and space (which is why we don’t have to understand the mantra). Thus it soothes in a most profound way. It soothes on a cellular level. It merges our finite identity with the infinite, and so dissolves us. It relieves us from the sights and sounds and stimulation of the material world and delivers us into a spiritual space, where the sound is God. The material needs are reduced to nothing but mind chatter, and like smoke pumped into the sky, will be scattered into the expanse. Through the sweetness of devotional surrender, mantra turns the negative into positive. I once heard it said: “as music has charms to soothe a savage beast, so the spiritual sound of mantra soothes the restless mind.”
