Mantra: listen to the mantra Rakhe Rakhanhaar.

Rakhay rakhanhaar aap ubaarian

Gur kee pairee paa-eh kaaj savaarian

Hoaa aap dayaal manho na visaarian

Saadh janaa kai sang bhavjal taarian

Saakat nindak dusht khin maa-eh bidaarian

Tis saahib kee tayk naanak manai maa-eh

Jis simrat sukh ho-eh sag/ay dookh jaa-eh

Time: Suggested 11 minutes.

Comments: The hands will hold the mother instinct. It can be totally perfect. Feel that you are a divine unit. Make this very dear to your heart. Concentrate at the Heart Center.
