Meditation to Develop the Mature, Elevated Caliber of a Spiritual Teacher

This meditation will develop in you a mature, elevated caliber—a caliber with endurance, courage, patience, manners, rhythm, and communication. Caliber is the main power of the person.

Every person is afraid to identify himself or herself because they don't have caliber. Caliber is the capacity of an individual to identify the inner self, and project one's identity. Caliber is the total capacity of an individual to communicate and to project one's identity.

With a well-developed caliber, you can project and lodge yourself into the memory of every person you come across. A Teacher has a caliber standardized with grace, dignity, and the character of a sage—full of tolerance, daring intelligence, and the power to sacrifice.

Part 1:

Mudra: Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine. Bend the elbows near the sides, and bring the flattened hands to either side of the shoulders. The palms are facing forward, fingers straight and side by side, pointing towards the ceiling. Extend the thumbs out away from the hands so they are parallel to the ground and point back towards the body. Hands are flat and tight. Continue to keep the spine straight throughout the exercise.

Eyes: Look at the tip of the nose.

Mantra: Har Haray Haree Waa-Hay Guroo. Chant in very distinct syllables, in a spoken monotone, with a brief pause after each syllable. Pull in on the navel point as you recite each syllable.

Time: 31 minutes.

To end: Inhale, and move directly to Part II.

There are six houses of knowledge, six gurus of that knowledge, and six systems to reach that knowledge. And a mastery of those six areas can qualify you to be a Master of Self, which is called the Seventh Self or the Seventh Ray of the Master.

The six sounds which represent the six houses of knowledge are: “Har Haray Haree Waa-Hay Guroo."

This meditation also helps to open up the navel. Powerfully get into the rhythm and the sound current to make it most effective.

Part II:

Mudra: Continue to hold the same position as Part I.

Music: The instrumental version of Ardas Bhaee:
Ardaas Bhayee, Amar Daas Guroo, Amar Daas Guroo, Ardaas Bhayee, Raam Daas Guroo, Raam Daas Guroo, Raam Daas Guroo, Sachee Sahee. The rhythm of the music is slow.

Time: 8 minutes in the following fashion, with no break between sections:
4 minutes: Whistle along with the tape from the navel very powerfully.
1 1/2 minutes: Do Breath of Fire powerfully from the navel.
2 1/2 minutes: Sing powerfully from the navel—not from the chest or throat area.

To end: Inhale, inhale, inhale, deep, deeper, deepest. Hold 10-15 seconds. Exhale with Cannon fire breath very powerfully. Repeat 3 times total. Relax. Then listen to the music for a while, then talk to someone before you get up and try to drive or go out.

With this mantra, project out your prayer with the help of the strength of the navel. This mantra calls upon the third Sikh Guru, Guru Amar Das, and the fourth Sikh Guru, Guru Ram Das, to answer one's prayers. The literal meaning of this mantra, in the words of Yogi Bhajan is:

“The prayer has gone out. Guru Amar Das hears the prayer; and Guru Ram Das confirms it and is the true guarantee that it is accepted.”
