Chanting this mantra seven or more times totally balances the electro-magnetic field of the body.

After you chant this mantra, you will feel calm, relaxed and mellow.Read: "Seven-Wave Sat Nam Meditation"

This meditation brings deep relaxation, strength and mental clarity. It brings the experience of the soul on the spot; it is soul talk. It enables one to give and keep on giving to a friend. It can change your entire destiny if you do it honestly. If you do this meditation for 31 minutes per day for 6 months you will experience the cosmos before your eyes. If you chant it 2 1/2 hours straight you can command the 5 tattvas. – Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi BhajanRead: "Soul Talk Meditation"

“The eight strokes will make you watch and count the breath and that will force you to relate to your breath. Best procedure is that you do this exercise every evening. Eleven minutes a day of eight-stroke breathing can give you enough energy to balance your (daily) consumption of (pranic) life and take you out of stress. Is it possible? Do you have eleven minutes?” ~Yogi BhajanRead: "Meditation to Alleviate Stress – The 8 Stroke Breath"
This mantra, also known as the Siri Mantra or the Magic Mantra, stops anything negative and removes all obstacles. It brings great intuition. If the mantra is chanted 5 times, it will stop the mind and put it into reverse gear. It can take you beyond duality and establish the flow of spirit.
It needs to be chanted with reverence. After chanting this mantra, anything you say will be amplified, so be positive and don’t say anything negative, at least for a while. This mantra can have a negative backlash if chanted incorrectly. So it’s best to invoke the sacred—chant or meditate before practicing this mantra.Read: "The Magic Mantra: Ek Ong Kaar Sat Gur Prasaad"
At times when the path of truth and clarity seems lost, calm yourself and still your mind, then the path will come to you. To live life according to the guidance of the inner truth is essential. If you do not, you will have doubts. If doubts are not removed, then frustration comes in. Frustration, when not released, leads to anger. Anger then leads to destructive action either to the self, others, or both. To stop this vicious cycle, create the habit to still the mind and ask questions of your own higher consciousness. This meditation can develop that capacity and strengthen your mental direction.Read: "Meditation for Guidance"
With regular practice of this kriya, you will start hearing the inner voice, knowing exactly what is being said inside.
The Siri Guru Granth Sahib is a subtle Word. It is a permutation and combination of words in ragas (a set of rules of how to build a melody). If you properly analyze it and understand it, it is beyond wonders. Slowly people recognize it and come to an understanding of the words. As was said by John, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” What was, what is and what shall be, are the same. One thing remains constant, consistent and carefree, and that is God Himself. God is not a person – it is a Self-Perpetuating Energy. And when you become near Divine, you also become a self-perpetuating energy, and then there is nothing good, nothing bad, nothing wrong and nothing high.
If you are gold, you will end up as gold. In this attitude of life, karmas do not matte. What matters is the attention you pay to your Creator. ~Excerpted from Yogi Bhajan Lecture, July 21, 2001Read: "Meditation to Hear the Inner Voice"
This is the Information Age – everybody can be informed about anything and everything. There is no secret, therefore there is no sacredness. Life is going to become an open book. When your computer is more loyal, truthful, informed and excellent than you, you will be challenged. You do not have to compete with anybody. You have to compete with yourself. Sooner or later there will be no marriages, and no relationships, because you will not have the mind to control yourself. Computers will take over your life and all you will find is frustration. You have to prepare yourself with a meditative mind and applied consciousness. Taking shelter in faith and hope will not work. It does not matter how successful you are—money, environments and success will not give you any strength at all. Those who are a slave of these and caught up in emotions and commotions are not spiritual. They have no trust in God. They have not understood the Greatness of the Ever-Prevailing Lord, the Creator of the Universe.Read: "Information Age and Meditation to De-Stress"
Guru is that guidance which takes you from darkness to light. Gurprasad means Guru’s Grace or Blessing; given by the grace of the Guru. When you are given a gift, a blessing, accept it as it is given. Don’t try to change it to your liking. Accept it with great devotion so it can open doors for you.Read: "Meditation for Gurprasad"
Practice of this meditation develops the sensory system and links the subtle body of the student to the subtle body of the Master. It is a meditation of subtlety. As long as the subtle body is not invoked, happiness cannot be permanent. This meditation works on the seven chakras, the shashara, pituitary, hypothalamus and thalamus. It is quite effective. You can warm up before practice of this meditation with 3 minutes of breath of fire, and 3 to 7 minutes of Sat Kriya.Read: "The Power of Personal Practice"
“All this knowledge is ancient and it is forgotten. We who practice Kundalini Yoga have no right to initiate anyone, because if somebody cannot initiate himself or herself, we should not be so foolish as to initiate that person. Basically, the law is that you have to be you to start with. And then you grow. Because you have three parts: a demon part, a human part and an angelic part.
At the very least you should accept yourself—you are human. Don’t talk negative, think negative, let anybody down, or participate in any let down. You should always be aware that any negative word you say negates you a hundred times more than it negates anybody else.”Read: "Attitude of Gratitude Meditation"
This meditation is to bring a meditative peace to the self. It’s so vibratory that even your lips, your upper palate, your tongue, your entire surrounding feels a vibratory effect. This mantra was given to me by Guru Ram Das in his astral self, not when I was challenged, but when Guru Ram Das was challenged. The beauty of this mantra is that it was tested. When our lives were in danger I said, ‘Folks, keep on chanting this. We’ll always be protected.’ It’s the same today. It always will be through every moment of life. It is called the ecstasy of consciousness. The impossible becomes purely, simply, and truthfully possible because you have righteous values and you have given yourself, soul and spirit, to those given values. It is then the God manifests everything.Read: "Rhythmic Harmony for Happiness"
