Chii-a Kriya: Surround Yourself with Protection

When you are losing hope and feel that nothing is working for you, this meditation is in order.

Chii-a means six in Gurmukhi. This meditation is an experience of the six “unchangeable sounds:” Har, Hare, Haree, Wa, He, Guru. They are associated with the six directions: east, west, north, south, up, and down.

When you meditate on these six in this way, the Universe covers you. You chant and God listens with love.
