JAAP SAHIB for the Aquarian Age

On a calm, mid-morning day in 2002, the Siri Singh Sahib was sitting on a bench outside the Espanola Gurdwara. I was there, along with my family, Dr. Siri Atma Singh and Nirinjan Kaur.

He began speaking to me:   

“I want you to put Jaap Sahib to music. In the Aquarian Age, it can’t be done in the same martial style that its always been done.  It has to be done in a more beautiful and mellow style, with just a little bit of martial energy….but mostly mellow and beautiful”. To make certain I understood his instructions, so I could create a ‘vibe’ for creating the music, I said “So….,mellow-martial?”   “Yes, mellow-martial.  But, just a little bit of martial-energy” he emphasized.

 He continued: “There are so many people in the world who are suffering and in a lot of pain. We must give them tools to deal with the pressure. Jaap Sahib has the power to penetrate right through the chest, go directly into the heart and completely heal a person”.

He made some additional comments about how difficult and messy things were going to get in the coming years.  The then stated “Jaap Sahib is the tool for the Aquarian Age”.       

Pleased to say my son and I have now recorded Jaap Sahib to the musical direction the Siri Singh Sahib gave.  Here are the various links to the music.

One way to do Jaap Sahib is Bowing Jaap Sahib. When the Siri Singh Sahib first introduced this kriya, he used Ragi Professor Sat Nam Singh’s version, which was basically 31 minutes long.  So, I decided to go with that same tempo, keeping to the 31-minute format.

You can also chant it, read it, sing it, do your own “mellow-martial” musical versions of it, etc. Also, if you can learn to read Gurmukhi, that is the best way to pronounce Jaap Sahib correctly.  

In the original Bowing Jaap Sahib lecture, he talked about “copying the sound”.  He said “I remember that the most powerfully effective way is to copy Jaap Sahib, because you are not copying the words, you are copying the creative essence of the word, the naad. There is no other way that you can learn about sensitivity. If you can practice this meditatively, then whatever people say, you will always compute what people mean”.

Here are the instructions for doing the Bowing Jaap Sahib Kriya.

Here are Siri Singh Sahib Ji’s comments from 1983, when he first gave the instructions for this kriya.

  1. Thanks jio
    Blessings on your family for your dedication for following a hukam of our beloved SSS Yogi Bhajan
    I have been waiting for years for it after your masterful CD of Ajai Alan and Chakra Chihan

  2. Yup, fantastic! I have waited a few decades for this. I remember when we were all sitting in his lecture class thursday night in Los Angeles, Guru Ram Das Ashram. That day I heard him tell you to put each chand into popular music so people can really get into it because they will need it in the future to get through depression in the Aquarian Age. I am so happy with your good news! Yes Prof Satnam Singh nailed the Naad!!! I use it almost every day to get going and I teach it as a requirement at Naad Academy in Sahib Parnam Kriya- ad a recorded master class that is available at Naad-academy. Com

  3. 🌀 Fortunate are we all to be a part of this fantastic dharma. It takes much courage to Keep Up. We all do our best & I know that many musicians who were challenged & stepped up to share their creative genius with us in yoga classes, white tantric gatherings, solstices, Gurdwaras, various classes & group settings. 💚 Gratitude is what I hold in my ♥️ heart for such inspiring music that time & Roma again is being offered “Up” 💜
