MEDITATION — Prosperity Meditation

(Transitions to a Heart-Centered World, Gururattan Kaur Khalsa, p. 143.)

Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine.

Focus: The closed eyes must be fixed on the tip of the nose to maintain concentration.

Breath: Chant with the tip of the tongue hitting the ridge on the palate. The tongue should be stiff. The breath will come naturally.

Mantra:

Har, Har, Har Gobinday

Har, Har, Har Mukhanday

Har, Har, Har Udaaray

Har, Har, Har Apaaray

Har, Har, Har Hareeang

Har, Har, Har Kareeang

Har, Har, Har Nirnaamay

Har, Har, Har Akaamay

Meaning of Mantra: “Har” is one of the aspects of God — the Creative Infinity. Gobinday=Sustainer; Mukhanday=Liberator; Udaaray=Enlightener; Apaaray=Infinite; Hareeang=Destroyer; Kareeang=Creator; Akaamay=Desireless.

Time: Chant 11-15 minutes when you wake up and 11-15 minutes when you go to bed (and you can listen on auto-reverse while you sleep).

End: Inhale, hold 10-20 seconds, exhale and relax.

Comments: The “Guru Gaitri Mantra” (without the “Har”) eliminates karmic blocks or curses from the past and cleanses the aura so that its easier to meditate and relate to the Infinite. It is an “ashtang” mantra (meaning it has eight vibrations which balances the brain) given by the tenth and last Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh (1666-1707). The tongue hitting the palate ridge activates neurons in the brain which will bring prosperity if done correctly. The closed eyes, fixed on the nose tip, center us and stimulates the pituitary gland.
