40 Day Meditation – August 2017

Come Together in Community with Our Kundalini Family.

August 2017:  Two Eclipse Events

The Lunar Eclipse: August 7, 2017.           The Full Solar Eclipse: August 21
Enter the eclipse portal with your Kundalini Yoga community.
Let’s come together to meditate!

Celebrate the powerful and transformational energy of the upcoming eclipses.  These times are expected to accelerate our evolution. As we stand at the doorway of this powerful energy, it is time to transcend our fears and move toward love.

Mercury also begins its retrograde cycle between the two eclipses at 6:00 pm August 13.

Eclipses shift the energies.
open new gateways that can lead to significant breakthroughs on our spiritual journeys. It is imperative that we are in alignment and navigate these times with courage and grace, and make time to meditate and focus consciously on breath.

Now is the time to shine, to radiate the essence of the Sun-energy (LEO). LEO is about participating, creating, giving, and stepping up. It’s about caring enough about life, our earth, and our planet to DO something. It is about creating and shaping our world because we care! LEO is the legacy we leave based on our love for life. What do you care about? What are you inspired to create and share with your community?

On August 7 at 7pm, Sada Simran and Siri Kirti present a special class, “Eclipse Magic,” to explain the upcoming energetic cycle shifts and introduce us to the Guru Gayatri Mantra with the four HARs.

Our Kundalini family will collectively begin this 40-day meditation to conquer our fears or anything that holds us back from accessing our greatest potential.

11 Min Guru Singh  Har Har Gobinday

This meditation is powerful and recommended anytime you feel stuck, need to be more grounded, and want to attract prosperity. Yogi Bhajan gave us this meditation to help us be successful during these challenging times and deal with the intensity of the energy during the shift to the Aquarian Age. This meditation is for courage and fearlessness, and builds a strong aura and radiant body. It gives you the strength to deal with all the challenges that life brings.

The Guru Gayatri mantra begins with 4 Har’s. It fixes the mind to prosperity and gives power to break down the barriers of the past. It converts fear to determination and invokes guidance. All powers come to serve your true purpose.


This meditation has 40 sounds, which together balance the 5 tattvas (air, water, fire, earth, and ether), 7 chakras, and arc line. This mantra can penetrate anything and help avoid misfortune. It has the power to break through any resistance or obstacles. It is very sacred, but not secret. Before chanting, pick one life challenge that seems difficult to deal with and place it in your heart while you chant this mantra. Let the energy infuse the situation. While chanting focus on the mantra and its energetic effects. Pumping the navel with each HAR will keep you present in your body. You can get totally absorbed into the sounds and feel very refreshed afterwards. You may be surprised at the change you feel about your current situation.


Sit in easy pose with the hands in Gyan Mudra (thumb and forefinger touching) on the knees, elbows straight.

Chant this mantra 11 minutes in the morning before starting your day to program your psyche for success and courage, to uplift your spirits, to create an aura of invincibility, and a super strong radiant body. You may even begin to glow in the dark!

Repeat before each of the eight aspects of the Divine: HAR, HAR, HAR, HAR

Pump your navel center with each HAR. Be sure to touch the tip of the tongue to the upper palate when you are making the ‘R’ of HAR. The ‘R’ if enunciated correctly will stimulate the pineal and pituitary glands to awaken the frontal lobe and deliver you to your neutral mind.

Chant in a monotone, enunciating clearly each syllable. Do not mumble. Move your mouth to make the sounds. HAR is a manifesting mantra. The other eight mantras are aspects of the Divine. Chanting HAR before each aspect pulls that energy into our physical and subtle bodies.

HAR, HAR, HAR, HAR GOBINDE – “Go bin day” –  God the One who sustains us
HAR, HAR, HAR, HAR MUKUNDE – “Mu kun day” – God the One who liberates us
HAR, HAR, HAR, HAR UDARE – “Uu dar ay” – God the One who uplifts us
HAR, HAR, HAR, HAR APARE – “A par ay” – God the One who is Infinite
HAR, HAR, HAR, HAR HARING – “Har ee ung” – God the One who clears our Path
HAR, HAR, HAR, HAR KARING – “Kar ee ung” – God the One by who’s grace everything is done
HAR, HAR, HAR, HAR NIRNAME – “Nir na may” – God the One who is nameless and desireless
HAR, HAR, HAR, HAR AKAME – “A ka may” – God the One who encompasses all

When you have finished, sit quietly and feel the effects of the meditation in your physical body, aura, and radiant body. Consolidate, contain, and radiate love. Be available for intuitive messages about your current life challenge. They may come directly after the meditation or later in the day. Be available to listen to your Soul.

“This mantra brings prosperity, happiness, and saves us from calamities. It is a sound current which brings a shield and brings good luck and removes discomfort and disease. It is the key to the doorway of self-elevation.” – YB

“When all the vibrations of you and your environments have gone negative, that is the moment to use this mantra. When you chant this mantra with the breath of life, you tap into all the angels of the Universe. It’s quick, it’s fast, it’s purposeful. It brings in what you need.” – YB


Additional Guidelines for Practice:

Practice the meditation for 5 to 11 minutes before going to bed. Then sleep with the mantra playing through the night. The following morning, before you get out of bed, chant this mantra. Sleep with this mantra and wake up with this mantra.
