Special Morning Sadhana: August 26
Yogi Bhajan was a pioneer yoga teacher who broke with the tradition of keeping Kundalini Yoga secret and sacred and brought it to the west to begin to teach it publicly. In honor of our teacher and in remembrance of the teachings, every year we celebrate his birthday with a special global Sadhana.
For morning sadhana on August 26, Kundalini yogis all over the world chant Long Ek Ong Kars for 2.5 hours. Yes, it is a long time, and it helps if you can chant with a group. If you are chanting by yourself, then imagine you are chanting with many other voices. If you haven’t experienced this sadhana before, this is a perfect opportunity. In the ambrosial hours at Lighthouse Yoga Center, anyone wishing to participate is welcome to join us.
We’ll meet at 445 am to do a few minutes of warm ups and the meditation will begin promptly at 5 am. We finish at 7:3o am and will celebrate with some yogi tea and birthday cake.
Want to learn more about the mantra we’ll chant? Here’s a short video of Krishna Kaur teaching the mantra, also known as The Morning Call.
Eleven Days of Chanting: August 15 – August 25
We start with 11 days of chanting Guru Guru Wahe Guru, Guru Ram Das Guru for 31 minutes each day. Call on Guru Ram Das using Yogi Bhajan’s personal mantra. Join the global spiritual community in connecting with the spirit of Yogi Bhajan, and offering thanks for all the blessings he so generously shared with us. If you’re interested in doing this as a group, please email us and we’ll see if we can make it happen at Lighthouse!
