Early Morning Sadhana | Free Community Practice
Sadhana means daily spiritual practice. We begin our sadhana by reciting Japji Sahib which is a sacred text and Universal Song of God composed by Guru Nanak, the first Sikh Guru. In chanting this, we begin to understand ourselves, the world and universe around us and how we play a part in the vastness of it all. There are 38 pauris in Japji and each pauri has a different meaning and focus. For a complete listing of the chants, their meanings and affects, click here.
After Japji, we begin our Kundalini Yoga Kriya followed by a relaxation. We then do a series of meditation chants called Aquarian Sadhana. Yogi Bhajan gave many Sadhanas. The Aquarian Sadhana was specifically given to us to help us transition from the Picean age into the Aquarian Age. The Aquarian Sadhana consists of 7 different chants done in a particular order lasting in all 62 minutes. Most of the chants are very simple and can be learned right away. For a brief description and listing of the mantras, click here.
Sometimes we do other chanting for the 62 minutes at times. It’s very powerful to chant together as a group.
Your body is the temple of God, and your soul is the Divine Guru within. So, you get up in the morning, meditate, chant the mantras, do the exercises, call on your spirit, regulate the breath, and you get together in group consciousness. In that way you help each other. Group consciousness in morning sadhana is to help each other.
If one has walked into sadhana with heart and soul in a prayerful mind, we will all benefit. That is the power of the group sadhana.
You can come in at at point during the early morning sadhana. Door will be left unlocked, just come in quietly. If your to tired to participate in the chanting portion. You can sleep in the cocoon of the energy & vibration of the group during the 62 minutes of chanting. You can leave early if you need to. It’s very laid back.
If your a teacher and would like to teach the Kriya or the chants, please get in touch with Amanjot Singh.

Getting up for sadhana in the morning is a totally selfish act- for personal strength, for personal intuition, for personal sharpness, for personal discipline, and overall for absolute personal prosperity.” -Yogi Bhajan
I’m teaching a 12 week Kundalini Yoga and meditation course starting Feb 2nd in correlation to the 12 steps in recovery, however everyone is welcomed. Yogi Bhajan says that it will take 500 years for the doctors to catch up to this technology. Kundalini Yoga facilitates the mind, body and soul. It’s a Raj yoga that was only taught to royalty in India and was kept secret for thousands of years. Yogi Ji came to the states to share this beautiful, healing technology to us to prepare us for this time, the Aquarian age, so we can live in vitality and live our highest purpose. I want to share this with you so please join me Mahanatma Kaur

Celebrate the Adi Shakti, Kundalini Yoga, May 11
Sut nam Yogi Friends and Family,
“Woman’s greatest art of life to win the world is to move gracefully with utmost patience, tolerance, kindness, compassion because remember, mother is not which delivers a baby, mother is which delivers the universe. ” Yogi Bhajan
Yogi Bhajan was concerned that as the roles of women become more complex and less secure, energy and prana are robbed from women. “Let us look from today onwards towards every woman on this planet as the Creative Principle and thus expect greatness,” he said. To support the great creative capacity of women to bring the universe into balance, he gave us a beautiful kriya for Throwing Off Stress and Uncovering Your Strength As a Woman. Also excellent for men!
On Thursday,we will practice this strengthening kriya as well as a mantra meditation for the Adi Shakti. “Adi Shakti means, literally, the primal, first power. Feminine in its aspect, it defines the future–both known and unknown, and is the embodiment of creativity, balance, and completion.” (Sat Purkh Kaur).
Come create space for calm and celebrate mothers, Thursday May 11 at 10:30 am at Dancing Cranes Imports, 673 E Simpson Ave. (2240 South).
As always, gong will be played for savasanah.
