Got Power? Get MANTRA

Got Power? Get Mantra.
What is a mantra? How does it work? Why tune-in to the Masters Golden Chain?

To center yourself before a set of Kundalini Yoga we chant the Adi
Mantra 3 - 5 times. Adi means the first or primal; Mantra is the
creative projection of the mind through sound. This mantra is the first
creative action. It centers you into the higher self and reminds your
lower minds that it is not your ego that will practice or teach
Kundalini Yoga. Technically it is the linking mantra for the Golden
Chain. The golden chain is the inner spark of Kundalini that is passed
person to person; teacher to student; guru to teacher; cosmos and God to
guru. By chanting this and linking, the exercises and meditations that
you practice are guided by your higher consciousness and all the
teachers that have brought this opportunity to you. It makes you very
receptive and sensitive to the messages of your body, mind, and
intuition. HOWEVER, it is only to be used as a link when you are to
teach. It is not like an individual mantra which is complete in itself.
It is a hook that creates a flow which you serve. If your need is
spiritual linkage and guidance then there is another form that is used:
the complete Adi Mantra. The complete individual form of the mantra
immerses you in awareness and guidance for your personal situation. It
establishes a guiding beam between you in your immediate state and your
higher consciousness that is true through all states. It is very useful
if you are entering Shakti Pad in Kundalini Yoga. It is also excellent
as a means to gain perspective and direction. Yogi Bhajan explained this
when he said, "Use this mantra in its complete form anytime you have a
lack of faith or any similar thing: Many of you will enter Shakti Pad,
or you are in it, this mantra will help: With the grace of Guru Ram Das,
when this mantra is chanted five times on one breath, the total
spiritual knowledge of all teachers who have ever existed or who will
ever exist on this earth is beseated in that person."

HOW TO RECITE: Sit in an easy pose with your spine erect. Bring both
palms in front of the heart center of the chest facing upward. Touch the
sides of the palms along the little fingers and sides of the hands, as
if you will receive something in them. Form Gian mudra in each hand by
gently touching the tip of the first finger to the tip of the thumb.
Focus your eyes on the tip of the nose. Inhale deeply and chant the
words as you exhale. Chant the entire mantra three to five times on one
breath. Keep the number of repetitions per breath constant. The sound
Dev is chanted a minor third higher than the other sounds. The sound of
devaa carries slightly on the 'aa' sound.

Continue 11 to 31 minutes for a powerful meditation and guidance. He did
not restrict longer periods of practice if you desire it.

The sound of Ong is created in the inner chambers of the sinuses and
upper palate. It is the "ng" sound that is emphasized. The first part of
Namo is short and rhymes with "hum". The first' syllable of the word
Guru is pronounced as in the word, "good." The second syllable, "ru",
has a sound that rhymes with the word "true." The word Dev rhymes with
"save." The aa in Devaa is chanted with the mouth open and the sound
vibrating as ah from an open throat.

THE MEANING: Ong is the creative energy of the total cosmos and
consciousness of the creator as experienced in this creation. It has the
connotation of energy and activity. It creates involvement without
attachment. It generates shakti, the generative force of life. Note that
the sound is not Om. That sound is for withdrawal and relaxation.

Namo means to bow to or to call on. The connotation is one of respect
and receptivity. It is the type of bowing that grants dignity through
acknowledging a higher consciousness and discipline.

Ong Namo calls on your consciousness to become subtle and receptive to
its own higher resources. It instructs the conscious and the
subconscious to let go of the normal restrictions to functioning that is
imposed by our limited ego. Guru means wisdom or teacher. It does not
mean a personality. It refers to a source of the knowledge. Not just any
knowledge. It is the kind of knowledge which transforms you, that
alleviates pain and that increases your awareness. Guru in the spiritual
context is the embodiment of the infinite. The word can be broken into
parts: Gu means darkness or ignorance; ru means light or knowledge; Gur
means a formula to systematically attain a goal; so a guru is something
which can give you a gur to transform your gu to ru! Dev means subtle,
etheric, divine or belonging to the realms of God. It implies
sophistication and wisdom.

Guru Dev Namo calls on the subtle wisdom that guides you in an
impersonally personal manner. It is a wisdom that is stored and
transmitted through the subtle and radiant bodies of the aura. It is the
realm and guidance of Guru Ram Das.

If the limited individual ego in which we normally live is a small pond,
then Ong Namo release us into a vast and endless ocean. Guru Dev Namo
gives us the experience of the wisest seer and all of his charts to
guide us to the many ports we are to serve and experience.
