Join us in person, or in spirit, for this community meditation starting promptly at 5:30 p.m. CST. If you are planning on joining in person, please arrive early enough to get settled before we start the meditation.

After the meditation please join us in fellowship and share with us some friendship and some light snacks.

We will be practicing the Complete Adi Mantra for Individual Meditation. We will be chanting "Ong Namo Guroo Dayv Namo, Guroo Dayv Namo, Guroo Dayvaa"

Sit in an Easy Pose, with a light neck lock.

Eyes: Focus your eyes on the tip of the nose.

Mudra: Bring both palms in front of the Heart Center
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 Gyan Mudra (tip of the index finger to the tip of the thumb)in each hand.

Breath & Mantra: Chant the entire mantra 3-5 times on
one breath. Keep the number of repetitions per breath
constant. The sound DAYV is chanted a minor third
higher than the other sounds. The sound of DAYVAA
carries slightly on the AA sound. ONG NAMO, GUROO
DAYV NAMO, GUROO DAYV NAMO, GUROO
DAYVAA 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 syllable GU is
pronounced as in the word good. The syllable ROO
rhymes with the word true. The word DAYV rhymes with
save. The AA in DAYVAA is chanted with the mouth
open and the sound vibrating from an open throat.
Time: Continue for 11 minutes

To center before a set of Kundalini Yoga we chant the Adi
Mantra at least 3 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 mind 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
mantra and linking to the Golden Chain, 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 also excellent as a means to gain perspective and
direction.

ONG NAMO, GUROO DAYV NAMO,
GUROO DAYV NAMO, GUROO DAYVAA
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.”
