In (2006), I found Kundalini Yoga but, I could not find a list of the mantras, or how to say them, anywhere. Information on this technology was scattered all over the net. Impossible to keep track of and I tried.
I made notes of everything I found on Kundalini Yoga and where I found it. After months of taking notes and book marking websites, my 10 year old Mac computer started erasing my typing and I could not stop it. So I moved all my notes to a free website, a wiki and closed it to the public. I started to organize my notes. And, I brought a new Mac computer.
No teacher could ever have answered all my questions. So, I bought the Kundalini Yoga Teachers Training manual in 2007, and read it almost in one day over 350 pages. I could not put it down, it gave me the background, I needed to know. I could see where Kundalini Yoga could bring my body back and give me health, again.
Right now, I am listening to one mantra, over and over (I just love it), I leave it playing on my computer (day and night) because the vibration, the frequency of the words and the language sets a good tone for the house. I cannot get enough of listening to it. It is Snatam Kaur singing "Ra Ma Da Sa, Sa Say So Hung". Yogi Bhajan said this is the most powerful healing mantra he taught. When you want to heal yourself or another, this is the mantra to use.
After taking Kundalini Yoga classes for about 2 months, I sent for my spiritual name, Sat Avtar Kuar. Sat means Truth, the eternal truth, the truth that never dies and that is unchanging. Avtar means incarnation, taking birth and manifesting. Kaur is a name that Yogi Bhajan gave to all women, all the men's last names are Singh. By using your spiritual name, you bring your life together and your destiny closer .
In the 1950's, when I was in High School, there was one yoga book in the Public Library, I am the only person that ever read it. In the mid 1960's, I jumped out of airplanes for fun, before the fancy chutes came out. In the 1970's, I studied at a Fourth Way School in Santa Monica, CA. run by Thane of Hawaii, aka Kenneth Walker (a student of G. I. Gurdjieff ). We studied Ontology which is the Science of Being. The I AM is not a Higher Self for the individual but rather a recognition of the ONE SELF which is the Infinite Consciousness which has been called by many names: I AM THAT I AM, YHWH, Yahweh, Jehovah, Lord, God, the Eternal One, He, He Is That He Is, Higher Self, Divine Mind, Infinite Mind, Consciousness, Being, Supreme Being, One, and so on.
What I also began learning was that no matter what information you were presented with, or who gave it to you, even a teacher, it was up to you to prove it to yourself, before accepting it, no matter who wrote it or who says it. That means not making an assumption, that that you really heard what a person says or understood what they wrote. So you ask questions, until you clarify it.
One needs to recognize that everything, that they encounter is their own consciousness out picturing around them. And everything is our own interpretation of it, our perception of it. We are all mirrors of each other. If you have people and places in your life that you don't like, well, it is your perception of what is going on, that you are dealing with. It is happening only within your mind. Change your perceptions of what is happening to you and your world will change.
In the 1990's, I studied Shamanism, I walked across hot burning coals and became a Fire walker. I also became a Reiki Master in the Usui system. At the end of 2006, I was reading Eckhart Tolle's, 2 books and Wayne Dyer's "the Power of Intention". And, then, I found Kundalini Yoga.It all fits together.
In Kundalini Yoga, I learned and do it every day, Kirtan Kriya. It settles the mind, and seems to place whatever - emotions- situations - memories - in perspective and they seem to dissappear, some forever, some need more releasing, deeper levelsl. It is a wonderful technique and very freeing.
I love Kundalini Yoga, the health and wellness that one can achieve through practicing this technology is fabulous. You can rebuild yourself mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. You can change your life totally, if you want to. I work on this site every day. There will always be something to add in and something new to do. My Desire the help people is being fulfilled through this site.
May all of you, always walk in the Light of Your Own Soul,
Sat Avtar Kaur
