Kirtan Kriya is one of the most important meditations in Kundalini Yoga. It was one of the first meditations taught by Yogi Bhajan, the mind goes out of balance when the pineal gland is dormant. The imbalance makes it seem impossible to break mental and physical addictions.

Note: Before starting a Class, Mantra, or Kriya Tune In!

Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo, Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo, Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo,

Whatever you need at the moment, it will readjust and align you to bring balance into your mind and thus your life. It is a catalyst for change because it is a very powerful spiritual cleanser.

 Do you think about an old lover and want to be liberated from the grips of the past  and release him or her from your aura? 

Why is it so challenging to drop the past?

You may have all good intentions to bring forgiveness to the past, drop old habits, and ready to move one and yet old thoughts, emotions and desires still haunt you.

Sometimes trying to let go of the past can feel like putting sticky paper in the garbage -- just when you think its gone it 's stuck there again on your hands or clothing. Source:

The Yogic Perspective

From a yogi' perspective the past is simply old experiences that now live as memories in the subconscious mind. The Subconscious Mind is a recorder and warehouse of all our actions, thoughts, feelings -- it is like being under video surveillance 24/7.

Most people are not aware of their subconscious mind, because it is below the surface of the conscious mind and can drive 85% or our behavior.

Continue repeating the sequence always starting with the index finger. The pace between each movement is approximately 1 second per fingertip. To end, inhale, hold the breath for a few seconds, focus the eyes upward, exhale and relax.

  • SA   is the beginning, infinity, the totality of everything that ever was, is or will be.
  • TA   is life, existence and creativity that manifests from infinity.
  • NA   is death, change and the transformation of consciousness.
  • MA  is rebirth, regeneration and resurrection which allows us to consciously experience the joy of the infinite.


is so primal that its impact on our psyche is like splitting an atom. The power of this mantra comes from the fact that it rearranges the subconscious mind at the most elementary level. It has the power to break habits and addictions because it accesses that level of the mind where habits are created.

Comment: I found that the 2-1/2 hours was really hard to do, but I can handle the 1 hour and either another hour or half an hour at a time. And it is great to do right before going to sleep. Forget the day. Dream Differently.
