Meditation on a mantra is an integral part of yoga. The sounds and vibrations of the words help to bring one-pointed focus to the mind, stilling extraneous thoughts and expanding our awareness. Kundalini Yoga in particular emphasizes the practice of using mantras for meditation, and there are a number of powerful practices to choose from. Gurusangat Singh has recorded several incredible albums that are specifically designed to support intensive mantra meditation. The albums include an instruction track that provides some very useful information, and several versions of the mantra to choose from. If you’re interested in deepening your experience with “Hummee Hum Brahm Hum,” “Isht Sodhanna,” “Guru Ram Das,” or So Darshan Kriya, check out these wonderful meditation albums.
This album has four different versions of this heart-opening mantra, which means “We are We, and We are one in God.” There is a 31 minute version, and three 11 minute versions done at different speeds. There is also a 4 minute introductory track by Gurucharan Singh Khalsa which gets you into a meditative state of mind.
This cd is designed to allow for 11, 22, 31, or 62 minutes of meditation on the mantra “Dharti Hai Akash Hai Guru Ram Das Hai.” This is a grounding meditation that connects a person with the Earth, and energies of humility and prosperity. There is a 9 and a half minute lecture by Gurucharan Singh Khalsa that will prepare you for this powerful meditation.
This cd contains 108 fast and 108 slow repetitions of the mantra “Guru Guru Wahe Guru, Guru Ram Das Guru.” This mantra was given by Yogi Bhajan and is a powerful mantra of protection. There is an 11 minute introduction by Gurucharan that accompanies the meditation tracks.
The newest album in the meditation series by Gurusangat and Gurucharan is an album to accompany the practice of Sodarshan Chakra Kriya. The recording is specially designed to help the listener to internalize the rhythm of the mantra in combination with the breath.
