Join us for Spirit Voyage’s 40 Day Global Sadhana: Honoring the Divine Feminine…the first global sadhana of the Aquarian Age!  In this video, Gurunam Singh and Ramdesh Kaur guide you through the sadhana they have designed to honor the Divine Feminine and uplift women and heal men across the globe (from the teachings of Yogi Bhajan).  For women, this practice will uplift and inspire you, helping you feel your own grace.  For men, it helps release mother phobia (which Yogi Bhajan said attracted “mean women” into your life) and release anger towards women.  For Mother Earth, any kind action you take off the yoga mat, with recycling or planting new life, etc., will honor and help her.

Thousands of people have already signed up for this journey, so don’t miss your chance to be a part of it!  Sign up for the daily support email on www.spiritvoyage.com/globalsadhana.

Instructions:

Tune in: Chant Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo 3 times.  (Chanting Aad Guray Nameh, Jugaad Guray Nameh, Sat Guray Nameh, Siri Guru Devay Nameh is optional.)

Pranayama:  The Old Gypsy Way of Calling on the Spirit

Raise your arms to 60 degrees.  Fingers are together, thumbs are loose, palms in line with the angle of the arms.  Lean forward slightly from the plane of the body.  Image a flame at your heart center.  Breath long and deep, eyes shut. Continue for 3 minutes.  To end, inhale and hold the breath in.  Send sacredness and healing to Mother Earth.  Exhale.  Inhale again and hold the breath in and bring the blessings of the Divine Mother into your heart.  Exhale.  Inhale again and hold the breath.  Taste the sweetness of life.  Exhale and relax the arms.

Recitation: Bhand Jamee-ai

Interlace your fingers, putting the thumbs together.  Place them at your diaphragm and get a cozy feeling.  Recite the shabad “Bhand Jamee-ai” 11 times.  (It is recommended to cover your head.)

Although the recitation is the practice we have chosen for 40 days, we encourage you to surround yourself with this sound current as much as possible.  Play the recitation or musical version of Bhand Jamee-ai on Gurunam Singh‘s “Honoring the Divine Feminine” in your home, while you sleep, drive, cook, or workout.  Chant aloud or just listen. Make this sacred sound current part of your life.  Also extend this practice out into the world.  If you are a woman, be kind and respectful to yourself for this 40 days.  Don’t say unkind words, even silently.  Honoring the Divine Feminine and Mother Earth in many ways, such as donating time to a women’s shelter, recycling and planting trees.  If you are  man, bring sacredness into your relationships with women.  Keep only kind thoughts and words about the women in your life and try not to objectify women in the media.  These are only suggestions, as you will find the ways to extend this sadhana out into your life quite naturally.

Bhand Jamee-ai

 

Complete Mantra:

bhand jammee-ai bhand nimmee-ai bhand mangan vee-aahu.

bhandahu hovai dostee bhandahu chalai raahu.

bhand mu-aa bhand bhaalee-ai bhand hovai banDhaan.

so ki-o mandaa aakhee-ai jit jameh raajaan.

bhandahu hee bhand oopjai bhandai baajh na ko-ay.

naanak bhandai baahraa ayko sachaa so-ay.

jit mukh sadaa salaahee-ai bhaagaa ratee chaar.

naanak tay mukh oojlay tit sachai darbaar.

 

Language:

Gurmukhi – Author: Guru Nanak, the first Guru of the Sikhs

 

Translation:

From woman man is born; within woman, man is conceived; to woman he is engaged and married.

Woman becomes his friend; through woman, the future generations continue.

When the woman in a man’s life dies, he must seek another woman; for he is bound to woman.

So why call her bad who gives birth to kings?

From woman, woman is born; without woman, there would be no one at all.

O Nanak, only the True Lord is without a woman.

The mouth which praises the Lord continually is blessed and beautiful.

O Nanak, those faces shall be radiant in the Court of the True Lord.

 

More Information:

Yogi Bhajan said that through this shabd one “develops reverence and sacredness in relationships with women. It takes away mother phobias and anger.”

To End:  Sit quietly for a few minutes and honor the Divine Feminine.  Honor women everywhere and the women in your life.  Honor Mother Earth.  You may chant, if you wish, one “Sat Nam” to mark the end of your practice.
