Meditation for Keeping Up with the Times
Reposted from Sikh Dharma Worldwide blog
We are experiencing rapid universal transformation. Old structures, outdated ways of thinking and being are crumbling. We see it in our personal lives, in our communities, in the global news. In order to keep up with the times and truly “live for each other” as Yogi Bhajan said, we must transcend our individual consciousness and expand into a collective and Infinite consciousness.
Ten is the number associated with the Radiant Body, Guru Gobind Singh, Unity, Royal Dignity, and Fearless Courage. This meditation includes Guru Gobind Singh’s bani (prayer) to invoke fearlessness and to remove obstacles so we, as a global community, may unite in radiance and truth.
This mantra contains the 8 facets of God: Gobinday, the One who sustains; Mukunday, the One who liberates; Udaaray, the One who uplifts; Aaparay, the One who is nfinite; Hariang, the One who destroys; Kariang, the One who creates; Nirnaamay, the One who is nameless; Akaamay, the One who is desireless.
Har is “Shakti Yog (power) Mantra.” Har is the creative energy of God. The four repetitions of Har give power to all aspects and provide the power to break down barriers of the past.
Har Har Har Har Gobinday
Har Har Har Har Mukunday
Har Har Har Har Udaaray
Har Har Har Har Apaaray
Har Har Har Har Hariang
Har Har Har Har Kariang
Har Har Har Har Nirnaamay

Press the thumb and ring finger together. Look at the tip of the nose. Chant rhythmically. Pull in the navel point with each repetition of Har. Chant for 11, 31, or 62 minutes.
