Sangeet's Message About Tonight's Journey to Brahm Prakash Meditation
Dear Friends, Sat Nam!
Tonight's meditation is a GREAT meditation to do when your prayers really need to work for you. Doing this, you become your prayer. Your radiance of compassion and heart-centered presence truly work on your behalf!
“Isht” is the concrete realization of God. “Sodhana” purifies or straightens you out so that you have the concrete realization of you, the God, the Divine.
The three phrases you chant describe and awaken your Divine place in the Universe as an infinite soul in a finite form, living on finite Earth. It brings the Earth and the Heavens together with the compassionate heart center of the great “master of miracles” Guru Ram Das. Described below, the visualizations and hand/arm movements deeply activate your enlightened self-realization.
Yogi Bhajan loved this mantra. He told us
“My dear ones, you want your prayers to be effective.
You want your ultimate destiny to manifest.
This kriya can do it.
I know there are thousands of kriyas that we do, but it just takes one done well and this is the one for isht sodhana to manifest.”
The form of this chant is both a declaration and a salutation (as in “I salute”) and the realization of Divine Self emerges.
This meditation can also give you the frequency to manifest your intentions, directed by your intuition as a sadhu. To obtain such a power (classically known as a Siddhi), do the meditation at sunset for 31 minutes for 40, 90, 120 days.
The instructions for doing this meditation are simple:
Asana: Sit on the floor in Easy Pose (legs crossed, hands resting on knees in Gyan Mudra or in lap) or sit in a chair (with hands resting on thighs in Gyan Mudra or in lap) and do your best to keep a straight spine.
Drishti and Pranayam: Eyes focus on the tip of the nose throughout. Let the breath adjust itself as you chant.
Mantra: Note -the word “Hai” is pronounced “heh”
Guru Ram Das Hai
The Heavens Are!
Guru Ram Das Is!
Visualization and Arm Movements:
Dharti Hai Visualize from your navel down a soft gray blanket, the dust of the Earth on which the feet of saints have walked. Your arms and hands are straight, angled downward by your sides.
Akash Hai See from your eyebrows up the bright rich blue of the Heavens, vast and unlimited. Your arms and hands sweep upward to 60 degrees, palms facing each other.
Guru Ram Das Hai Bend your arms and bring them inward to fold hands over your heart, with the left hand under. Visualize and bask in the great white light of this compassionate master, Guru Ram Das. Let that light penetrate both the gray and the blue.
While doing this, hold the visualization of all aspects – the gray, the blue and the pure white light. Immerse yourself in the chant.
Optional Mudra: While this series of moving mudras was taught originally at a Summer Solstice Yoga Festival as directed by Yogi Bhajan, it has also been given with Gyan Mudra, hands resting on the knees with the tips of both thumbs and index fingers touching in little circles.
Here's How To Do It:
1. Sitting in Easy Pose or a chair, chant the Adi Mantra (the “Tuning In” mantra) three times.
2. Chant the mantra setting a pace of about 12 seconds for each recitation. (Visualization and arm movements are described above.)
3. When the meditation has finished, powerfully and deeply inhale while raising arms above your head, and hold for 10-15 seconds. Powerfully and deeply exhale.
Repeat inhale-hold-exhale once more with raised arms. Then lower your arms to your lap/knees and sit quietly.
Feel the vibrations of the mantra in you and around you.
4. Finish by singing the “Longtime Sunshine” song followed by a “Long Sat Nam.”

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.
