In 2003, Sewa Singh Khalsa, was guided by the Siri Singh Sahib to create this version of the tree of life. Siri Singh Sahib Ji then gave a corresponding prosperity meditation to do while mentally focusing on this beautiful image.
Place the Prosperity Mandala in an important location in your home, focus on it and chant The Prosperity Mantra:
Har Har Har Har Gobinday, Har Har Har Har Mukhanday,
Har Har Har Har Udaaray, Har Har Har Har Apaaray,
Har Har Har Har Hareeang, Har Har Har Har Kareeang,
Har Har Har Har Nrinaamay, Har Har Har Har Akaamay
This mantra fixes the mind to prosperity and power. It contains the eight facets of the self with Har, the original force of Creativity. The four repetitions of Har give power to all aspects and provide the power to break down the barriers of the past. It converts fear into the determination to use and expand the reserve energy of the Navel Point. It invokes guidance and sustenance, all powers come to serve your true purpose.
The four HARS are combined with the Guru Gaitri Mantra, GOBINDAY-Sustaining, MUKHANDAY-Liberating, UDAARAY-Enlightening, APAARAY-Infinite, HAREEANG-Destroying, KARREEANG-Creating, NIRNAAMAY-Nameless, AKAAMAY-Desireless.
The Siri Singh Sahib translated the Guru Gaitri Mantra as follows:
One who sustains us.
One who liberates us.
One who uplifts us.
One who does everything.
One by whose grace everything is done.
Nameless and desireless.
This is what Sewa Singh says about this Mandala:
“Regarding the Tree of Life Mandala – Yogi Ji specifically instructed me to create this image. He made requests for specific themes or images occasionally before this, but this one was a particular challenge because of the scope and detail he wanted. He said that he wanted a universal tree of life that included all the saints from every tradition. The actual total number of images of saints from every tradition is, of course, an unreasonably large number for my skill level, as well as practicality in a painting. Instead, I chose those saints/images that would best represent the widest and most inclusive diversity. Of course, I avoided creating images of those saints who are specifically forbidden by their respective religions to be depicted.
I believe my internet access was limited at the time, so my exposure to the amazing diversity of traditions and their saints was quite limited compared to today. I didn’t realize until much later that the “Tree of Life” was a motif that spanned many traditions, east, and west.
I decided to use a format for the painting that honors the Tibetan thanka style because I sensed that it is one of the most inclusive and cosmic of the world’s devotional styles of painting. Yogi Ji was very pleased with the final painting and was kind enough to sign one of the reproductions for us that had been produced for a fundraising event. I was very honored by his approval of the work, as he never hesitated to level profound criticism in my direction when he felt it was required.”
“By meditating on this Prosperity Mandala, you will understand the transient nature of life and its cycles. Infinite blessings will flow to you.” ~ The Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan, 2003
