SA TA NA MA Meditation - This is a guided meditation which is very powerful & has the power to break habits & addictions because it accesses the level of the mind where they are created. It was brought to the west by Yogi Bajan, who brought Kundalini Yoga to the West in 1968. He taught over 8,000 classes & inspired thousands of people to keep up & live in their excellence.
The SA TA NA MA meditation was one of the first taught by Yogi Bhajan & remains today as a foundation meditation recommended for every student of Kundalini yoga. Yogi Bhajan says that if you can only do one meditation, this is it. It does everything for you in the order that you need, it is your teacher & as you practice this you will come to realize that it is your best friend. Whatever you need at that moment, it will readjust & align you to bring balance into your mind & your life.
Mahala will guide you through each stage & direct you on what to do ~ you have three options that you can work with, the 11 minute version, the 31 minute version or the 62 minute version, it really doesn’t matter what option you pick, as long as you do it, it will work at cleansing & clearing your subconscious mind.
While doing the meditation you may experience pictures of the past come up like on a movie screen in your mind. Let them come up & release them with the mantra, this is part of the cleansing of the subconscious mind, if emotions come up, you can also incorporate them in the chanting for example if you feel anger then chant the anger. Whatever you experience is ok, don’t try to avoid or control your experiences, simply be with what is going on for you & go through it, it is all part of the cleansing process.
The Meaning behind each Mantra that you say out loud...
SA is the beginning, infinity, the totality of everything that ever was, is or will be.
TA is life, existence and creativity that manifests from infinity.
NA is death, change and the transformation of consciousness.
MA is rebirth, regeneration and resurrection which allows us to consciously experience the joy of the infinite.
SA TA NA MA is so primal that its impact on our psyche is like splitting an atom. The power of this mantra comes from the fact that it rearranges the subconscious mind at the most elementary level. It has the power to break habits and addictions because it accesses the level of the mind where habits are created.
The Mudra that you use in conjunction as you say the SA TA NA MA Mantra out loud...
SA press the thumb and the first or Jupiter finger together with pressure. TA press the thumb and the middle or Saturn finger together. NA press the thumb and the ring or Sun finger together. MA press the thumb and the small or Mercury finger together.
The Jupiter finger brings in knowledge, expands our field of possibilities and releases us from limitations.
The Saturn finger gives us patience, wisdom and purity.
The Sun finger gives us vitality and aliveness.
The Mercury finger aids clear communication.
Each time you close a mudra by joining the thumb with a finger, your ego "seals" its effect in your consciousness.
