This Kundalini mantra is one of Yogi Bhajan’s 5 Sutras of the Aquarian Age. The mantra has both physiological and psychological effects on your body.
When you recite the mantra, the resultant vibration helps to activate the energy centers present on your head and face which are responsible for memory and concentration.
On an energetic level, our spiritual or etheric body, which includes our nadis (energy channels), and chakras and aura also respond to the vibration of the Kundalini mantras.
Advanced practitioners state that they can actually observe the petals of the chakras (which actually look like lotus flowers) open and brighten up as someone recites a mantra.
Furthermore, each energy center has its own seed mantra which can be practiced to increase its prana (also known as life force energy or chi) and facilitate healing in its corresponding area.
In addition, any type of sound or speech that exists is sound waves that vibrate at different frequencies.
All the energy systems of our body also operate at a unique vibrational rhythm. When they are imbalanced, we experience emotional, physical and mental illness; when our systems are balanced, we experience harmonized and perfect health.
Therefore, the vibrations created by mantra meditation heal, balance and rejuvenate, helping our energetic and physical bodies to come back into harmony.
Reciting Kundalini mantras also alters the consciousness and increases psychic power, and the sacred mantras empower the practitioner with spiritual gifts that help him reach his goals in life.
This occurs due to the fact that this spiritual practice taps into the Divine Principle which, in turn, grants supernatural and otherworldly powers (siddhis).
Sit cross-legged with an upright posture, with your neck, head, and spine aligned (easy pose). Close your eyes and inhale deeply and release your breath while starting to chant the mantra (aloud or mentally).
Chanting will allow you to feel the vibration of the mantra resonating through every single cell in your body. Practice for 11 minutes or as long as you are comfortable.
