Meditation for Awareness and Guidance

The Complete Adi Mantra:

This mantra will be familiar – we use the Adi Mantra to tune in before we begin class. We chant it to tune into our higher selves. By doing the ‘Complete’ Adi Mantra, you are establishing awareness and guidance, linking your present state and your higher consciousness. It can help you gain perspective and direction.

Tune in to your meditation practice with ‘Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo’ (repeat 3 times).

Posture: Easy pose, with a straight spine. Bring your chin in so you have a light neck lock. Your hands are cupped in front of your heart centre, with your palms facing up and the sides of your fingers touching (like you are receiving something). Within this postion, your fingers come into gyan mudra (thumbs and index fingers pressing together).

Focus and Mantra: Your eyes are focused on the tip of your nose. The mantra is repeated 3 times on one breath:

Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo,
Guru Dev Namo, Guru Deva.

Time: 11 minutes.

Music: In class we used the version from Satkirin Kaur Khalsa’s album ‘Ignite Your Light’. This is available on
