TUNING IN WITH THE ADI MANTRA: ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO
Before every Kundalini Yoga class or practice session, we have to tune‐in. One way to explain the process of tuning in is to suggest that if you were going to watch this on TV, you’d have to turn to the right channel. The code letters, for the ”station” we want to access in our practice of Kundalini Yoga is reached by the sounds: ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO.
ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO invokes the blessings of the Creator, the Divine Teacher within each one of us. It links us with the entire line of spiritual teachers who have handed down this ancient wisdom from master to disciple through the ages.
Many people approach yoga from a purely physical standpoint, and that’s OK, because it has tremendous physical benefits. But do not underestimate its other aspects! The effects go far deeper than just physical improvement. Kundalini Yoga is the Yoga of Awareness.
Kundalini Yoga is a science, a sacred science; in other words, it is a spiritual practice—and spirituality cannot be taught, it has to be caught, like the measles. It is contagious. You have to get it from someone who’s got it. Which is why you want to tune‐in to the line of teachers—they’ve already “got it” —and that includes, of course, our Teacher, Yogi Bhajan, who is Master of Kundalini Yoga. It does not mean that you are tuning into his finite personality, however. Instead, you are calling upon the highest aspects, the divine consciousness, of all the Teachers in the Golden Chain. At the same time, you are stimulating and awakening your own wise, elevated, and divine Self, and making a conscious connection with the One who created you, who breathes in you. Whew! Not a small thing! This is a major, important mantra.
You could even consider chanting as a sort of “connection by osmosis.” ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO is the phone number of the Divine Teacher within you. So, turn the dial of your mind, and switch to the channel that will give you the clearest reception—the least static and interference from the ego—of the technology and the vibration that comes with it. ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO assures the correct inner guidance for your practice of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®.
SAT NAM Y’ALL!
