MEDITATION –

Raa Maa Daa Saa, Saa Say So Hung

(Healing Meditation)

(Reaching Me in Me, Kundalini Yoga as Taught by Yogi Bhajan, pp. 59-60)

Posture: Sit in easy pose or in a chair with a straight spine.

Focus: Eyes are closed and focused at the third-eye point.

Breath: The breath will come automatically as you chant. Inhale deeply before you begin chanting. 

Mantra: “Raa Maa Daa Saa, Saa Say So Hung.” You may either chant out loud or meditate silently. When chanting out loud, keep your chant at full volume (loud but not raucous) throughout the meditation.

Meaning of Mantra: Raa=sun energy

Maa=moon energy

Daa=earth energy

Saa=infinity, universal energy

Saa=repeat in second half of mantra

Say=the personal embodiment of Sa

So=the personal sense of merger with Sa

Hung=the Infinite, vibrating and real.

The mantra literally means, “I am Thou.” It is also used to mean, “The service of God is within me.”

Mudra: Put your left hand on your navel point. Your right arm is by your right side, elbow bent, with the palm facing forward. You are holding your right hand up as if you are taking an oath. The movement of the hand is timed with the chanting.

At “Raa,” slowly begin moving your right arm forward from the starting position and continue slowly moving so that your arm is straight out in front of you with the palm facing downward at “Hung.” The movement begins with “Raa” and is completed at “Hung.” Then the right arm moves back to the starting position by your side and the movement begins again at “Raa.” The right arm moves as if giving a blessing.

Time: Start with 11 minutes and gradually work up to 31 minutes.

End: Inhale deeply, hold your breath and visualize the person you want to send healing to (it can be yourself). Make that image in your mind very clear and see a glowing green light around the person. Keeping that person in your mind, exhale. Inhale deeply, hold your breath and continue to send the person healing green light. Still keeping that vision in your mind, exhale. For the last time, inhale deeply, hold your breath and see the person very clearly, see the green healing light bathing the person, bathing every cell in the body. Exhale and relax.

Comments: This meditation will develop your power to heal. Yogi Bhajan taught it on December 20, 1999. He said that this is a meditation to practice for the rest of your life. It is a simple exercise that can give you the power to heal.

Variations for Healing Others:

1) You may do this kriya using your left hand to hold the hand of the person you want to heal. The right hand moves as described above. You may chant the mantra out loud or mentally and silently.

2) If the person needing healing is very ill, shaking and shivering, you can place your left hand on their navel point and place your right hand on their pituitary. You may chant the mantra out loud or mentally and silently.
