Ang Sang Wahe Guru

Ung sung waa-hay guroo
The dynamic, loving energy of the Infinite Source of All
is dancing within my every cell,
and is present in my every limb.
My individual consciousness merges
with the Universal consciousness.

Laya-Yoga

Mantra chanting with Ang Sung Wahe Guru celebrates the realization that there is no piece or part of ourselves, no action, and no life that is not already the living vibration of the Infinite. It is all God. We are one.
Yogi Bhajan said, in The Master’s Touch, that ”…if you have put God outside of you, there’s nothing in you, and that’s why you’re suffering.” He continued, ”You need a reality that Ang Sang Wahe Guru, with every limb, with thirty trillion cells of you which change themselves every seventy-two hours, God is in you.”

This mantra is used to eliminate haunting thoughts, bring peace when there is emotional imbalance, and to counter the phobias and depression that can happen in times of war. It reminds us of the larger connection with the universe and takes us out of limited, defensive thinking.

”This mantra expresses a universal truth. Repeating it creates a thought, which gradually guides the psyche to adjust itself. It re-connects every fragmented projection of the psyche, each separated part of the body, and synchronizes the finite sense of self to the Infinite Oneness. This act of rejoining the separated parts is the quintessential act of healing. Under attack, under war, under the pressures of fear, this meditation keeps us together, conscious, and ready to act. It brings the inner peacefulness that comes only from the touch and scope of spirit.”

– A Commentary by Gurucharan Singh, KRI Director of Training

To really connect with this mantra, sit in easy pose with a straight spine and place your hands in Gyan Mudra (thumb and forefinger touching). Take as much time as you need…try 11 minutes or 31 minutes. Feel your inner guidance, the Source Energy within each cell (the Ang Sang Waheguru), and you will know the appropriate amount of time for YOU to chant.

Breath of Fire

BREATH OF FIRE:

(AGNI PRAN)

Breath of fire is one of the foundational breath techniques used in the practice of Kundalini Yoga. It is important to master this breath so that it is done accurately and becomes automatic.

Breath of Fire is rapid, rhythmic, and continuous. It is equal on the inhale and exhale, with no pause between them.
It is always practiced through the nostrils with mouth closed, unless stated otherwise.
Breath of fire is powered from the navel point and solar plexus. To exhale, the air is expelled powerfully through the nose, by pressing the navel point and solar plexus back toward the spine. This feels automatic if you contract the diaphragm rapidly.
To inhale, the upper abdominal muscles relax, the diaphragm extends down, and the breath seems to come in as part of relaxation rather than through effort.
The chest stays relaxed and slightly lifted throughout the breathing cycle.

When done correctly, there should be no rigidity of hands, feet, face, or abdomen.

Breath of fire is not hyperventilation.

There are restrictions for doing breath of fire while pregnant and menstruating.

Benefits of breath of fire:
*Releases toxins and deposits from the lungs, mucous linings, and other cells.
*Expands the lung capacity and increases vital strength.
*Strengthens the nervous system to resist stress.
*Strengthens the navel chakra.
*Repairs the balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
*Increases physical endurance and prepares you to act efficiently
*Adjusts the subtle psycho-electromagnetic field of the aura so that the blood becomes energised.
*Reduces addictive impulses for drugs, smoking, and unhealthy foods
*Increases oxygen delivery to the brain, facilitating a focused, intelligent, and neutral state of mind.
*Boosts the immune system and may prevent many diseases.
*Promotes synchronization of the biorhythms of the body’s systems.

Laya Yoga on Ecstasy

Laya Yoga on Ecstacy instructions

Sit in Easy Pose, eyes closed, hands in Gyan Mudra, elbows locked. Sit majestically, as though in the court of a king. Chant ”Wahay Guru for 11 minutes. To finish, inhale and hold your breath for 30 seconds, focusing on the crown of the head. Exhale and relax.

Yogi Bhajan comments:

Ecstacy exists within. It is the Infinite Pool to refresh the heart, giving strength to creating a better self and world. This meditation leads to that experience. So calm, so sleepy, like the merging of a raindrop into a vast, calm lake you reflect all, cleanse all. If you can cross all, you can know the extent of living in yourself, with balanced consciousness, playing with the Infinite.

Meditation for Shuniya

”Shuniya” or a “zero point”s is where the mind become still and you become the observer. This way you are not the ripple of the waves, but stillness in the depths of the ocean. There is a great meditation that Yogi-Bhajan taught on 3/7/1995 (#LA827) specifically for developing shuniya. Guru Dev, the Master of Sat Nam Rasayan said this meditation, “Is an essential meditation for shuniya.”

Meditation for Shuniya Instructions:

-Imagine that your eyes are behind your head and looking down into the tip of your nose.

-Do long deep breathing: inhale deeply, hold, exhale slowly, hold, etc.

-Continue meditation for 11 minutes.

Guru Dev Singh the healer talks about how we can heal through understanding out interconnectedness. He also talks about how you can’t have compassion if you have anxiety yourself. It is through becoming completely objective (shuniya) that we can heal others.
