Sadhana means daily spiritual practice. We begin our sadhana by reciting Japji Sahib which is a sacred text and Universal Song of God composed by Guru Nanak, the first Sikh Guru. In chanting this, we begin to understand ourselves, the world and universe around us and how we play a part in the vastness of it all. There are 38 pauris in Japji and each pauri has a different meaning and focus. For a complete listing of the chants, their meanings and affects, click here.

After Japji, we begin our Kundalini Yoga Kriya followed by a relaxation. We then do a series of meditation chants called Aquarian Sadhana. Yogi Bhajan gave many Sadhanas. The Aquarian Sadhana was specifically given to us to help us transition from the Picean age into the Aquarian Age. The Aquarian Sadhana consists of 7 different chants done in a particular order lasting in all 62 minutes. Most of the chants are very simple and can be learned right away. For a brief description and listing of the mantras, click here.

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
