Healing Meditation - Heal Yourself and Heal the World

Copyright © 2003 - Guru Rattana, Ph.D.

The 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.

A 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.

I 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.

You 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.

You 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.
Healing Meditation Instructions
Yogi 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.

RA MA DA SA is the earth mantra.

This part of the mantra pulls the healing vibration into the physical plane.

SA SAY SO HUNG is the ether mantra.

This part of the mantra resonates with the universal healing frequency.

RA - Sun
MA - Moon
DA - Earth
SA - Infinity
SAY - totality of infinity
SO HUNG - I am Thou
Activating the Chakras
The mantra can be vibrated up the spine, chakra by chakra. Slightly pull on the energy centers as you chant each sound. This internal stimulation helps activate and align the chakras.

RA - base of spine
MA - belly (ma aa)
DA - navel center
SA - heart
Pause - hold at heart
SA - heart
SAY - throat ( say ay)
SO - third eye
HUNG - out the top of the head
To Begin
Set 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.

Position - Mudra
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.
(to form a 45% angle point the hands are over the legs toward the knees.)
The fingers are together with the thumbs stretched out towards the side away from the fingers.

It 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.

Your eyes are focused at the tip of your nose and the eyelids are nine-tenths 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 attention there.
The mantra is to be chanted in either of the following two versions:

Inhale deeply and chant the mantra all in one breath. Ra Ma DA SA SA Say So Hung. There is a pause between the two SAs, but NO breath. Adjust the speed so that you can chant the full mantra on one breath, without a cheat breath on the pause.

MA and SAY are slurred making two notes each, "MA AA", "SAY AY". The first SA is short. HUNG is forcefully vibrated in the skull and out the top of the head.

Chant for 11, 15, 22 or 31 minutes.
Effects and Powers
This meditation gives one the power to heal long distance and to heal with the hands.
To End:
Now 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.

Repeat 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.

The above sequence can vary according to what you are intuitively directed to do

Another thing to do is to feel the Sun or a golden light in you heart:

  • Chanting RA creates this energy.
  • 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 peace.
  • 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.

End with the prayer "God bless this Earth with peace." Repeat five times.
Enhancing and Holding Sacred Space
I 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.

Here a few ideas on how to enhance and hold a sacred space for healing.
Experience the Power of the Group
It 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.
Healing is a Frequency
A 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.
Elevate your Consciousness
The 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.
Cultivate a Relationship between You and You
The 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 attention.

This 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.
Self-love 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.
Healing Others
Hold 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.
Connecting Earth and Ether
As 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
Incorporating 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.

Everything 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.

Obviously, 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 resistance.

Evolution is the nature of both the human and the cosmic game. God created 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 we are
co-creators of our own lives.
The more we release our resistance, the more we participate and the faster
we impact creation and evolution.

Clearing 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.

Love to all.
Light to all.
Peace to all.

"Gurunam's 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!"

"I 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."
