At the beginning of each Kundalini Yoga class, we chant the Adi Mantra together, three times:
Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo
I bow to the Creative Wisdom…I bow to the Divine Teacher within…
This mantra is used to ‘tune in’ to the divine flow and to our own self-knowledge. It also links us to Yogi Bhajan, the Master of Kundalini Yoga, and to the Golden Chain of teachers.
We then chant the Mangala Charan Mantra for protection, three times:
Aad guray nameh
Jugad guray nameh
Sat guray nameh
Siri guru dev ay nameh
I bow to the primal wisdom.….I bow to the wisdom true through the ages.….I bow to the true wisdom…..I bow to the great unseen wisdom…..
