healing meditation done with the mantra RA
MA DA SA SA SAY SO HUNG is one of the most popular mediations
taught by Yogi Bhajan. This meditation can be done alone or in a
group for self-healing and to heal others and the world. Those who
practice this meditation participate in anchoring the healing vibration
on the planet.
group of eleven students began doing this meditation at the Winter
Solstice Celebration in the early seventies for Yogi Bhajan. We
wanted to give back to him for all that we were receiving from
him. This meditation is now done as part of the routine of every
White Tantric Meditation Course and is done on a regular basis
around the world to send healing energy to Yogi Bhajan. It is
the meditation that he requests when he needs our healing prayers.
remember when I first learned this meditation in the late 70's
when I was living in Boston. I did it when I started to feel like
the flu was coming on. To my amazement the sick symptoms disappeared.
This has become one of my favorite meditations. I do it every
evening before I have dinner. I dedicate the healing vibration
to healing the Earth and anyone else in need at the time. Above
all, I offer the healing vibration to Yogi Bhajan in gratitude
for sharing the life-changing technology of Kundalini yoga with
me and the world.
can do this meditation whenever you feel the need and the inspiration
or you can do it for 40 days or longer. Like with any spiritual
practice, it is beneficial to complement the process with conscious
living and regular Kundalini yoga practice.
can start your 40 days whenever you like. However, the New Moon
is a good time to begin a meditation. Somehow it is easier to
sustain the commitment by commencing a spiritual practice on the
New Moon or between the New Moon and the Full Moon. Try this especially
if you are having a hard time continuing a practice for 40 days.
Bhajan has said that the mantra RA MA DA SA SA SAY SO HUNG is
one of the most powerful healing mantras on the planet. The power
of this mantra comes from its ability to connect earth and ether.
This mantra is used in many meditations taught by Yogi Bhajan.
Below I explain one of the most popular meditations.

your intentions and ask for healing for yourself, others you wish
to include, the Earth and Yogi Bhajan. Then release these prayers
to the universe. During the meditation concentrate only on doing
the meditation, the mantra and the effects you are experiencing.
Get into the sensory experience and awareness. The more you are
present to your experience, the more effective you are in creating
a sacred healing space. You will use the space that you have created
at the end to share healing energy.
Sit in Easy Pose (or full lotus) with your upper arms resting
against your ribs, slightly in from the sides. The elbows
are bent, and your forearms
positioned upward and slightly angled out from the upper arms.
Your palms are flat, facing upward and pointed out from your
body at a 45-degree angle.

is very important to stretch the thumb away from the fingers.
The stretch in the webbing keeps the hands flat and helps maintain
a stretch at the wrist. You can use one hand to push down the
other hand in order to get a feel of the correct stretch in the
wrist. It is this stretch that helps balance the brain. When the
thumb is not stretched, the wrist relaxes, the hands move upward
and the mudra and its effects are compromised. When the mudra
is accurately done, you will feel energy or a pull in the center
of the palms. This creates the power to heal with your hands.

closed. The focus at the tip of the nose, creates the pressure
to cross the optic nerves at the third eye. You should be able
to feel an awareness at the third eye and be able to hold your

breath, without a cheat breath on the pause.

is the time to use the healing space that you have created.
Inhale deeply and hold the breath. While the breath is held,
concentrate on yourself and feel the sensations in your body.
Feel or allow the vibration of the mantra to penetrate every
cell of your body. Feel the mantra continue to resonate in your
body. Become the healing vibration. Allow yourself to be healed.
the above process 3 or more times with the following variations.
Inhale deeply and hold the breath. Feel the healing love pulse
in your heart. Invite in friends, members of your family and
situations and allow them to be bathed in the healing vibration.
Hold them in your body, in your heart and in the healing vibration
that you now resonate with and embody.
Inhale deeply and hold the breath again. Feel that your heart
is so big and the love so infinite that you can hold the whole
earth in your heart. Let the earth pulse with the mantra and
be healed with this love.
Inhale deeply and hold the breath for a last time. Invite Yogi
Bhajan into your heart to be healed. Be very attentive. I personally
find that my heart space increases dramatically when I invite
Yogi Bhajan in. I feel he is also healing me.
above sequence can vary according to what you are intuitively
directed to do
thing to do is to feel the Sun or a golden light in you heart:
Chanting RA creates
Expand it to fill every cell of your body. Then merge with the
group's light if you are doing this with in a group.
Feel the light expanding to radiate through the room, the vicinity,
the area, country and then the whole earth.
See/feel the earth healed.
See/feel the hearts of every person penetrated with love and
Merge everything into Universal Light.
As you come back, i.e. focus only on yourself, know that you
can maintain this healing energy and light in your being.
Intend that simply by smiling and greeting others, you share
this love and light with the world.
with the prayer "God bless this Earth with peace." Repeat
and Holding Sacred Space
used to project healing energy to others, the earth and Yogi Bhajan.
Over the years I shifted to holding the space inside me and allowing
the healing to take place inside my expanded space. This works
better for me. It feels more powerful, I can maintain my center
and concentration and I do not lose energy.
a few ideas on how to enhance and hold a sacred space for healing.
the Power of the Group
is always more powerful to do any meditation or yoga practice
with a group. Our individual energies merge to create a powerful
healing vortex that supports everyone present. Invite friends
to do this and other meditations with you. And even if they do
not choose to chant, they can lie there and receive the healing
energy. It always feels good to share like this.
is a Frequency
vibrational shift is required to create transformational. This
mantra creates a frequency where healing is possible. Be aware
that you are raising the vibration to create a shift. Then practice
holding the vibration to sustain the healing.
cause of all pain and suffering is in our consciousness. We release
our pain by changing our consciousness. Use this meditation, and
all meditations, to elevate your consciousness. We use divine
mantras to elevate the frequency of our minds to match the frequency
of the love essence of our soul. Our goal is to achieve inner
peace through the experience of the purity of our own being.
a Relationship between You and You
experience of separation occurs in our psyche. When we feel separate
from the Divine, we have the thought that we are not loved or
lovable. The relationship between the Divine and you is really
a relationship between you and you. To cultivate this relationship,
find some sensation in your body, and enjoy it. Keep enjoying
something pleasurable that you feel in your body or mind or both.
Do not let go of the connection between your attention and your
body, feelings and sensations. Do this everyday for 40 days and
then continue some more. Increase the time that you give yourself
is a great exercise to do after healing mediation because it creates
some great sensations that you just want to keep feeling. The
more we feel the pleasurable sensations, the more we identify
with them. The more we love what we feel, the easier it is to
stay in this space. This is the foundation for self-love. We can
actually feel we are love and we love it.
and self-healing are really the same process. We use the sound
current of the mantra to heal our emotional body. We do this by
working with the energy of the emotions. We soothe the conflicted
energy with the sound current. In your heart, experience the purity
of your essential essence and how it merges and becomes one with
the healing mantra. Let this experience pulse through your whole
body. Hold this sensation to heal yourself.
the space of unconditional love an acceptance that you have created
for yourself and let anyone who you wish to share healing with
enter this space of the heart. The more we experience this space
in ourselves, the more we have to share with others.
Earth and Ether
we consciously reconnect with our body, we realize that our body
is the temple, the fine-tuned instrument, and the sensory system
of our soul. The more we align in our body, the more we are able
to receive and embody universal healing energy. The more we stay
consciously connected to the vibration, the more we embodying
this energy. The more we embody the energy, the more we serve
to anchor this healing vibration on the planet.
Healing Expansion and Evolution
the following thoughts into your healing ritual and into your
general awareness during the day will facilitate your healing
process and your contribution to global healing.
is light. Sound is light. We are all reflections of light. And
we are light. The more we see everything as light creating light,
the more we connect with this reality.
there are challenges in life that we do not like and wish to change.
One of the most effective ways to create change is to let go of
our resistance. Without resistance, change happens quicker and
easier. All divine mantras can be used to infuse light into our

evolution to not be bored. Creation and evolutions create a dynamic
state of stimulation. We are here to learn and transform.
The more we learn, the more we expand.
The more we expand, the more light we embody.
The more light we embody, the more we realize that extent to which
co-creators of our own lives.
The more we release our resistance, the more we participate and
we impact creation and evolution.
our inner space and releasing our resistance aligns us with the
light. The more light, the easier it is to get support from the
universe. Allowing is the absence of judgment and resistance.
Allowing = love. Love is the purity of everything that is, was
and will always be. Love includes all. All wants to be included
and loved. And so
do we all. Start with yourself and see how your love grows to
include everyone, the world and the universe.
Musical Versions of Ra Ma Da Sa Mantra
Yogi Bhajan often requests that his classes chant this
mantra along with the CD recorded by Gurunam Singh (Dr. Joseph Michael Levry). He
asked that we chant to this CD to help heal the traumatic emotions
created by the shock of the events of 9/11. He often plays this
CD in his home. This recording (and the other CDs by Gurunam)
are especially powerful because they combine the science of Kabbalah
with the technology of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan.
It is very healing to infuse your environment
with these healing sounds by having this mantra playing in the
background. I personally go to sleep with the Gurunam CD.
Light to all.
Peace to all.

ABOUT Ra Ma Da Sa CD
CD also helps with depression and calms pets. My cat is FIV positive,
and whenever she shows signs of getting ill, I play this CD for
her. I think it helps (she is alive and well after being diagnosed
with FIV in 1991!). Play it for yourself and your animals who
feel your stress!"
was on the Yoga Technology site last night and came across the
Ra Ma Da Sa CD by Gurunam. I
played the small clip. A few minutes later I realized the sample
was over but I could still clearly hear the music! I had never
heard this music before but really recognized it deeply within
me. One of the suggestions for me to do daily to help increase
my pranic energy is to listen to this or chant daily. Last night
when I went to bed I heard the music clearly as what I heard on
the CD for over two hours. I could feel it vibrate throughout
my body. Even right now the music is playing again inside me.
I can hear it clearly and feel its vibrations."
