Aquarian Sadhana is a specific 2.5 hour practice that is done during the Ambrosial hours of the morning. These pre-sunrise times house a unique and special meditative quality that allow us to clear the subconscious more deeply. The Aquarian Sadhana was given to us by Yogi Bhajan as a preparatory tool to enter the Age of Aquarius, our current Age we live in, that dawned fully in 2012. We begin by reciting the sacred Japji text in the Gumukhi language (also known as the song of the soul). We then tune in and do a physical kriya followed by a short relaxation. 62 minutes of Aquarian Sadhana Mantras (detailed below) then follow. This culminates with a short reading of a divine text to direct our day before we tune out.
Aquarian Sadhana can be done on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. It is a beautiful way to start your day.

With this mantra, we strengthen the connection with the infinite self, the part of us beyond the physical world, beyond creation.

This is a mantra of ecstasy with which we establish ourselves for victory and the right to excel.

A Sadhana quote by Yogi Bhajan:
“The greatest reward of doing sadhana is that the person becomes incapable of being defeated. Sadhana is a self-victory, and it is a victory over time and space. Getting up is a victory over time, and doing it is a victory over space. That is what sadhana is. And when you do a sadhana in the sangat, you enrich yourself in multiple ways.”
