Sangeet's Message About Tonight's Journey to Brahm Prakash Meditation
With this Journey to Brahm Prakash Master Meditation we continue to build our self-mastery in this challenging "9 Cycle."
This is a month to be remembered! We seek nothing less than to make big strides forward with renewed courage in challenging times.
On the 16th of each month a major portal opens around the world that allows us to meditate and reach the heavenly ethers to enlist the support of the ancient masters to surround this planet with the power and intention of our meditation and prayers.
Tonight's 2-1/2 hour master meditation to victory is the chant "Chatara Chakara Vartee.”
This is the closing verse of the prayer “Jaap Sahib” written by the great warrior Guru Gobind Singh who defended India against the Mogul onslaught in the late 16th Century. Chanting it dispels fears, anxieties and insecurities and brings fearlessness, courage and victory.
Here is the mantra for this incredible meditation. Please note that the first two words of the first two lines are different ("Chatara" and "Chakara") and are NOT pronounced the same! The spelling and pronunciation are so similar that during the bliss of the meditation sometimes the two different sounds get merged into some sort of third sound. Be conscious during your chanting!
Chatara Chakara Vartee
Chatara Chakara Bhugatay
Sadaa Ang Sangay
Yogi Bhajan Comments:
"Chatara Chakara Vartee is the mantra for the heart center, it gives direct energy to it. When you are sinking, if you know this mantra and can sing it, you can totally recuperate yourself.” — Yogi Bhajan
"The sound current of these lines of Jaap Sahib reveals multi-current sounds to avoid the crush of bad times. It makes even the worst situations very light." Yogi Bhajan (Master's Touch 2001)
You are pervading in all the four directions, the Enjoyer in all the four directions. You are self-illumined, profoundly beautiful, and united with all. Destroyer of the torments of birth and death, embodiment of mercy. You are ever within us. You are the everlasting giver of indestructible power. (Courtesy of SpiritVoyage.com)
We will be chanting this mantra set to a powerful rhythm from the CD "Lightness of Being" by Satkirin Kaur Khalsa (satkirin.com).
For those of you who join us in person we'll share a cozy, heart-warming vegan meal afterwards.
If you can, let us know you're coming, otherwise just show up, that's okay (even if you come a few minutes late).
Bless you in all ways, always,
Date & Time: Sunday October 16, 2016, 6:00-9:00pm.
Fee: $20 ($35 for a couple) - A warm vegan meal will be served afterwards with Yogi Tea!
Location: 9851 N. 28th Way, Phoenix AZ 85028. (Near Route 51 at Shea Blvd). Please park on Cinnabar, NOT on the cul-de-sac.
Compatibility and Support Information for Computers / Smart Phone / Tablets
Please note that on some computers, phones and tablets the video can take up to 60 seconds to start (it is buffering the video stream).
Video support for mobile devices ("smart" phones and tablets) is often iffy because they use the newer and currently less compatible "HTML5" video instead of Flash.
Desktop/laptop computers (Windows, Mac and Linux) work best because they come with Adobe Flash Player. Please check that you have a very recent version of Flash. Video support for mobile devices, however, is often iffy. Mac users often have problems with the built-in browser "Safari". Install Google's "Chrome" browser or Mozilla's "Firefox" browser and use either one of those instead. (The difference between those two mostly has to do with privacy -with Chrome, being from Google, you surrender all your privacy [same as using Safari] and Firefox, being from the Mozilla Foundation, you retain much of your privacy.)
Android Smart Phone and Tablet users -In the recent versions of Andriod the built-in browser is called "Chrome." It is most compatible and usually works very well. If the video is not playing correctly, then there is not really anything that can be done other than try a desktop computer if one is nearby -that may work better for you.
Firefox-for-Andriod (free and found in the Google Play store) usually works well. We personally use Firefox-for-Android on our Android devices rather than the built-in brower (for a number of reasons including better privacy and also better compatibility with HTML 5 video). So you might want to give it a try!
iPads and iPhones purchased within the past year or so usually work fine with the video. Older versions often struggle to keep a reliable video connection and there really isn't a way to fix it.
In general, though, if the video stops and there is just a black box without a big "Play" button in the middle of it, "refreshing" your browser usually re-starts the video. Unfortunately, interruptions during live broadcasts are usually unavoidable. However, with the new cutting-edge technology we're using in 2016 combined with you using a computer / smart phone / tablet less than 2 years old can minimized interruptions and in some cases avoid them all together. It is just the nature of this young technology, but it will improve in the coming years.
