Long Ek Ong Kars

This mantra is used as the cornerstone of morning sadhana, though it can be chanted at any time. It is also called Long Chant, Morning Call, and the Adi Shakti Mantra. The mantra creates a relationship between the individual soul and the Universal Soul. It is said that this meditation can balance all of the chakras, open the solar plexus, liberate you from the cycle of time and karma, and unite you with the Divine. 

The Practice

Posture: Sit in an Easy Pose with jalandhar bandh. Maintain a strong Neck Lock (jalandhar bandh).

Mudra: Have the hands in Gyan Mudra, or resting in Buddha Mudra in the lap.

Breath and Mantra: Chant Ek Ong Kaar Sat Naam Siree Whaa-hay Guroo

Chant in a 2-1/2 breath cycle, in the following manner and try not to let the pitch fall:

Inhale deeply and as you pull in the navel abruptly, chant Ek. Then Ong Kaar is drawn out. Give equal time to Ong and Kaar. On Ong let the sound resonate in the upper cavity of the head, by closing the back of the throat and vibrating the upper palate, and allowing the sound to come through the nose.

Inhale deeply and as you pull in the navel abruptly, chant Sat. Then Naam is drawn out. Then, just as you get to the end of the breath, add a quick Siree (pronounced S'ree).

Inhale half a breath, pull in the navel abruptly, chant Whaa. Then Hay Guroo (Hay should be relatively short, Guroo is pronounced G'roo and is drawn out, but not too long.)

The Ong Kaar and Naam Siree are equal in length. The Whaa-hay Guroo is equal in length to Ong.

Translation: One Creator created this Creation. Truth is His Name. Great beyond description is His infinite wisdom.
