Here are a few excerpts from a lecture that I found by Yogi Bhajan, way back on April 8th, 1971. "The Mantra EK ONG KAR SAT NAM SIRI WHA GURU, has 8 vibrations and describes the Glory of the Infinite. In the time period 2 and 1/2 hours before the rising of the Sun when the channels are most clear, if the Mantra is chanted in sweet harmony you will become one with the One. It opens the solar plexis, which in turn charges the solar centers and connects them with the Cosmic Energy. All mantras are good, they are all for the awakening of the Divine but this Mantra is effective and it is the mantra for this time. It is a key which has eight levers and this key can open the lock of the time which is shaped in the form of an 8 (wheel over wheel). Therefore, when this Mantra is sung while applying the neck lock, at the point where Prana and Apana meet Sushumana, the vibration opens the cosmic lock. In the town of Goindwal in Punjab, India, even today this Divine Mantra is still inscribed on the walls of the Bowli Sahib (sacred well) at the house of Guru Amar Das, the Guru of Guru Ram Das, through whose blessing today we vibrate in the Divine ecstacy. I disclose to you today this secret of the Divine for the uplift of humanity and those who will follow it will be liberated and be one with the Divine." – Yogi Bhajan

    and what does it matter that it might be muslim, even if your link showed no proof. for sound is sound, as vibrations echo trhoughout the world and your eyes, ears, and every other facet of our daily lives. Respect that which is placed in front of you, be not ignorant, for that, is how you will find true happiness

    I love the long Ek Ong Kar mantra! It is indeed helpful in focussing before the banis. Brings peace into mind as well. Thank you!

    Dear Guruka Singh
    a few days ago I saw your video in U Tube Meditation 2 – Long Ek Ong Kaar,
    This is one of the most beautiful meditation techniques I have ever seen.
    I can appreciate the beauty of this by hunch as I come from a very different background
    I saw almost all the videos and I am very impressed with the quality of information you give
    that is why I desided to email you asking your advice
    I meditate regularly twice per day for 20 minutes and I am also practicing silence several times a day
    Some times I feel during meditation that I do not have sense of the position of my physical body
    I do not have the sense to understand if I am upside down or not(usually the labyrinth in the ear does that for us ,independently of touch or sight )and I start whirling (not my physical body ) .It is a very odd experience because I move on a spiral (anti-clockwise rotation).
    I had searched high and low to found an explanation on this but I am still in the dark.
    I can describe it as a joyfull experience. What is it or where I can found information for this?
    Thank U so much
    Peace and love

      The fact you do not feel the phsical body is a great sign, of high meditation.

      Regarding the anti-clockwise rotation it is a form of ascending in prayer, similar to merkaba.

      Pray to God for guidance, protection, wisdom and understanding, stay self-disciplined and continue to practice what you normally do, keeping an inner attitude of humbleness. Congratulations!

    Dina – Your subtle body can move independantly of your physical body. The long Ek Ong Kaar chant frees the subtle body to move free of the physical body. I recommend that you lie down on your back, arms at your sides and rest for 5-10 minutes after you finish chanting. make sure your physical body is completely relaxed and warm. Put a shawl over your body if you wish. Gradually you will become able to control how and where the subtle body moves when it travels.

    I’m sorry if this is a silly question. What is the good time in the morning to do this Mantra?
    Also the Audio mp3 download link not working for me.
    Thanks for sharing the proper way of reciting the Mantra.

  7. This is best done in the Amrit Vela… in the early morning before the sun rises.

    I fixed the download link.

    Thank you for your whole work, for sharing with us Guruka Singh's mantra. He communicates truth valid for many people of all religions. Esoterically, we are one. Exoterically, we are many.
