Potluck breakfast sharing to follow!
Guru Ram Das held a special place in Yogi Bhajan’s heart as his spiritual guide, and many meditations and mantras used by Kundalini Yogis around the world call on his energy for guidance, healing, and protection.for guidance, healing, and protection.
We have a special sadhana and chanting Dhan Dhan Ram Das Gur for 2 ½ hours in the Amrit Vela. We’ll begin with Japji (Song of the Soul) at 4am and follow with this special 2 ½ meditation. Chanting is the repetition of key phrases that vibrate at a specific frequency. It creates deep inner peace and physiological relaxation. This powerful mantra is chanted with great respect and reverence. It’s a good idea to cover your head and keep your spine warm with a shawl.
“Each one of you is the living miracle of the grace of Guru Ram Das to which I bow in all salutation with each cell of my body. May you all be blessed with his grace, may you never be disappointed in his power of absolute giving and may you excel with prosperity, happiness, and health, and share this path of joy forever.” ~ – Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga & Meditation

Blessed, blessed is Guru Ram Das; the One who created You has also exalted You.
Perfect is Your miracle; the Creator has installed You on a throne.
Sikhs as well as all Conscious people recognize You because you manifest the Creator.
You are unchanging, unfathomable and immeasurable;
You have no end or limitation.
Those who serve You with love are carried across the sea of existence.
The five obstacles of lust, anger, greed, pride and attachment:
You have beaten them and driven them out.
Blessed is Your realm, and True is Your magnificent glory.
You are Nanak, You are Angad, and You are Amar Daas;
When I recognize You, my soul is comforted.
