Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo
Ong – the creator, infinity, the beyond of beyond
Namo – worship, reverent greetings, bow, call upon
Guru – the teacher, the highest self, the one/ the technology that brings darkness into light
Dev – transparent ones, the angels, spirit guides
This is the mantra we chant in the beginning of all the Kundalini classes/practices, to invoke the connection and blessings of the Spirit of Golden Chain.
We call this process – Tune In. It is like a dialing code to the divine and the highest self/all the guides / teachers. Yogi Bhajan taught that after tune in, the teacher’s job is done, because the spirit of the Gold Chain has taken over. It is then a direct relationship / experience between the practitioner and the Gold Chain of teachers.
For myself, Ong Namo Guru Dev is my go to mantra. I chant it every morning when I wake up, and every night before I close my eyes in bed. I want to be in the constant connection with the teachers, I desire to be always tuned in and in alignment with my spirit, even in my dreams :)!
I chant Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo whenever I need answers, solutions & inspirations.
I chant Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo I feel myself off centered : too busy, too emotional, too scattered, too tired … 😛 It brings me right back to the center of my being, that is so calm, present, and wise.
I chant Ong Namo Guru Dev Naomo when I am feeling great, or regardless… It is a mantra very dear to my heart 🙂
I chant Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo a lot to Shen-Qi, my two years old daughter :)!
Here is a beautiful musical version from Amrit Kirtan.
