"Ardas Bhaee" Meditation -The "Mantra Prayer" That Answers All Prayers (Complete Practice with Intro Talk)
Please Note: This version of the video begins with Sangeet giving her “Insights about this Meditation” followed by "Tuning In" with the "Adi Mantra", then the "Ardas Bhaee" meditation (about 11 minutes) and concludes with the "Longtime Sunshine" song.
Dear Friends, Sat Nam!
This is a great meditation when to do urgencies arise or when you feel pressing needs that you do not know how to address. Surely these times call for such a magnificent chant!
You can chant it for 11 minutes or as long as you feel prompted – 3, 11, 22, 31 minutes or longer. You can use it for a number of days, weeks or months. If you do it in an extended way it will work on many issues, including working on matters you do not even know are important to you and your soul.
Two great Spiritual Masters go to work on delivering what is best for you or for the person for whom you are praying. Worries can disappear. No need to exert effort – just chant. Over time, using this mantra for numerous needs, you come to trust that all outcomes it brings are Divinely directed.
You may see the outcome you wanted materialize or perhaps something entirely different that represents a higher gift.
This mantra-prayer, as Kundalini Yoga Master Yogi Bhajan called it when he gave it to us, is “the prayer that answers all prayers.” That includes prayers you do not even know to pray!
It brings both a promise and a guarantee from two great Masters/Gurus in the 16th Century Sikh lineage – Guru Amar Das whose generosity and caring service made him known as “the hope of the hopeless,” and Guru Ram Das, the “Lord of Miracles” and king of the yogis, who guarantees that this prayer is already being delivered.
Here's How To Do It:
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 and feet flat on the floor.
Drishti and Pranayam: Ideally the eyes are focused on the tip of the nose throughout. They can also be closed and rolled up to the Third Eye Point. The breath will adjust itself as you chant.
Mudra: Relax your upper arms by the sides of your rib cage and bring the hands up to the level of the heart. Interlace the fingers with a grip somewhat tighter than normal. [Note: For ladies interlace the fingers so that the left thumb rests on top of the right thumb. For men this is reversed, with the right thumb on top of the left.]

1. Sitting in Easy Pose or a chair, chant the Adi Mantra (the “Tuning In” mantra) three times.
2. Chant the “Ardas Bhaee” meditation with this recording, a CD, or a capella in a monotone. Put your heart into it!
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.”
I was blessed to be present when Yogi Bhajan introduced this mantra as a chant at a White Tantric Yoga Course in New York City in the early 1980s and I remember clearly his translation.
The first line of the first verse literally means “Prayer is granted!” and he told us we have that assurance from Guru Amar Das. The second verse attests to the fact that Guru Ram Das puts his stamp of approval on it – and Yogi ji planted his right fist emphatically in his open left palm much as one would stamp some important document.
My prayer for all of you you is that you use this chant regularly and allow it to lighten your life!
Bless you in all ways, always,
There are three versions of this video - “Complete Practice with Intro Talk”, “Complete Practice”, and “Meditation Only.” They are each on their own web page.
This web page you are looking at has the “Complete Practice with Intro Talk” version of the video and is a good place to start if this is your first time with this meditation. Sangeet begins by giving her insights about this meditation followed by “Tuning In” with the “Adi Mantra”, then the “Ardas Bhaee” meditation (about 11 minutes) and concludes with the “Longtime Sunshine” song.
The page with the “Complete Practice” version of the video is intended to be used as a complete self-contained Kundalini Yoga practice since it begins with “Tuning In”, followed by the “Ardas Bhaee” meditation (about 11 minutes), and then concludes with the “Longtime Sunshine Song.”
The page with the “Meditation Only” version of the video is intended for adding to your existing practice since it is just the 11 minute meditation.
