Truth and Oneness Kriya

Originally taught on July 19, 2001

Part 1—Affirmation for Self Love

Posture: Sit straight in a cross-legged position.

Mudra, Movement, and Mantra: Place your right hand on your heart and say, “My heart, I love you.” Place your right hand on the eyes and say, “My eyes, I love you.” Move to the top of your head and say, “My head, I love you.” At the navel point say, “I love you.” Place your hands on both your knees and say, “I love you.”


"Mankind is divided by religions, religions are divided by sects, sects are divided by cults, cults are divided by frictions. We still live in a cave called home, with the fire burning and the meat cooking. We do not live for each other. We live at each other or against each other. If you pay a little bit of attention to yourself and show love to yourself, you will find yourself to be different. You have been taught to hate everything, and that what you do not hate will eat you up. This is your most stupid behavior." - Yogi Bhajan

Part 2—Affirmation of a Teacher

Posture: Sit straight in a cross-legged position.

Mudra: Raise the right hand by the shoulder as if taking an oath, and say: “A teacher is not a preacher. A preacher is a preacher. A teacher is a teacher. A teacher is not a preacher. A preacher is not a teacher. A teacher can only be a teacher. A teacher cannot be a preacher. A preacher will not be a teacher. That I say solemnly.”


Part 3—Meditation on Truth and Oneness

Posture: Sit straight in a cross-legged position.

Eyes: Closed.

1. Hold hands with your neighbors. Chant, “God and Me, Me and God are One.” If what you chant is true, press the hands. If not, do not. The other person will know if you have spoken the truth or if you are a liar. Continue for 11 - 31 minutes.


2. Adjust your shoulders, raising and stretching out your right arm, then the left.

To End: Deeply inhale and, without disconnecting the hands, very calmly relax, stretching the spine with one long complete exhale. Then let go of the hands and stretch your body:

a) Raise both arms straight up, twist left and right;


b) Bring both knees to your chest, lock them with the hands and press hard towards yourself;


c) Extend the legs straight forward. Feel happy and relax.


3. Again, sit straight in a cross-legged position.

Position A: Raise both arms straight up over the head and hold your hands in Sarab Gyan Mudra—fingers interlocked with the index fingers together pointing up and thumbs crossed. Eyes are closed. Rhythmically chant in a monotone from the navel:

Wha-hay Hoo, Wha-hay Gu-roo

Emphasize ‘Hoo’ and ‘roo’ and extending the second ‘hay’ longer than the first.


Position B: Then bring both hands to shoulder level with the elbows relaxed down, palms facing forward, and rhythmically chant in a monotone:

Ra Ra Ra Ra Ra, Ma Ma Ma Ma Ma,

La La La La La, Sa Sa Sa Sa Sa

with emphasis on the last …Ra …Ma …La …Sa.

Alternate position A and B three times. Relax.


4. Chant the Ek Aacharee Chand shabd: Ajai, Alai. (The version by Gurushabd Singh and Nirinjan Kaur was used in class).

Ajai Alai Abhai Abai

Abhoo Ajoo Anaas Akaas

Aganj Abhanj Alakh Abhakh

Akaal Dyaal Alaykh Abhaykh

Anaam Akaam Agaahaa Adhaahaa

Anaathay Pramaathay Ajonee Amonee

Na Raagay Na Rangay Na Roopay Na Raykay

Akaramang Abharamang Aganjay Alaykhay

Continue for 11 minutes. End by singing the Long Time Sun song, ending with three long Sat Nam’s.


5. Quickly stand up and sit down 4-6 times. 



Then dance with Bhangra music for 3 minutes.

To End: inhale, exhale, sit down and relax.
