EVERY DAY: 03:45 – 06:30
While we will be chanting before sunrise, we will build a strong energy field that will benefit all. The window between 03:00 and 06:00 in the morning, the Amrit Vela (the ambrosial hours), is the most powerful to meditate : this is the time of the day when your subconscious mind releases the most. Imagine : if you meditate during this time and invest 100 € in your energy bank, by the end of the practice, your 100 € will worth 4 000 € ! The mantra recitation and repetition (Jaap !) will be amplified fortyfold in your body/mind system ! The group practice will also benefit you, and you’ll benefit the group energy.
The Long Ek Ong Kar meditation was the first Sadhana that Yogi Bhajan taught his American students when he came to the West. It’s a foundational practice of Kundalini Yoga.
“Through this meditation, you will master the power of prana, Pavan Siddhi, until the breath of life becomes your own. It will give you the power of Vac Siddhi, the power of speech. What you say with the breath shall happen. It is hard labor. Do this Jaap, repeating it again and again until you reach 1/10th of the day: 2 1/2 hours. Your faces will be bright and beautiful and you will settle the accounts of everyone you know.”
Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine. Chant from the navel in a 2,5 breath cycle. Ek Ong Kaar – Sat Naam Siree – Wah-hay Guroo. Each sound vibrates and integrates a different chakra within the aura. Ek is very short, as when we split the atom, releasing a humongous amount of energy from the first chakra. Ong is vibrated from the second chakra, resonating through the nostrils to experience the conch of the third eye. Kaar is vibrated from the navel. Take another deep inhale and chant Sat Naam Siree. Sat is short, coming abruptly from the navel, pulling up the diaphragm. Naam is very long and resonates through the heart. Siree is the greatest of all powers, the Shakti, and is chanted with the last bit of breath. It is pulled from the navel and up through the neck lock. Then take a short breath and chant Wah-hay Guroo. Wah-hay and Guroo are released through the top of the head.
