SAT SIRI AKAAL True Great Immortal
I said to my musician friend, about a month ago : " I do need to buy a new guitar, and I see it white".
He replied that, choosing an instrument it is not a matter of color, but of sound.
Since I am an artist, I paint everyday, colors are me, and I am the colors.
I found her, got her, called her BIANCA, and now we make music together.
Choose the companions that make you happy, exalted, vibrant. Even if they are white!
Move with the spirited beat of your heart, harmonize your inner sounds with the spheres. Fly high with the devotional songs of the 10th Master.
A full day meditating with 600 people , all dressed in white, so contained and present, aware of the sacred space and energy we were in. Waho! The Unison created during the chanting of Sat Nam, it was for me experiencing the sounds of the Spheres, all going at different speeds, yet in harmony with all.
It was truly magic, mystical, awesome, and ultimately,elevating,
This was for me the 100 some tantric experience. Always different, as I am different each and every time. Always uniquely perfect for where we are, deepening into our essence, cleaning more layers from the subconscious.
"The Beauty of White Tantric Yoga is that it is subtle, it is exalting and it works to give you the mastery of life"
"Make yourself so happy so that when others look at you they become happy too."
I was blessed to have recognized my Spiritual Teacher this lifetime.
Yogi Bhajan always encouraged me to sing and spread the Naam, to keep up with my practice, and teach Kundalini Yoga and Gatka.
In one of his letters, dated July 11, 1994 , he lovingly wrote me:
"Accept what is yours and reach out to take the hand of destiny.
Be strong and claim what is rightfully yours."
He carefully watched me grow and unfold into my essence, Siri Kartar Kaur,
the Princess of the Magnificent Creator.
Yoga and martial art are a path to experience great energy and indescribable bliss.
The Warrior is in the house!
Naad Yoga is the Yoga of sound, and it brings me always to another realm,
calmer and deeper.
Is the part of Kundalini Yoga that makes you sing.
Every time I chant a mantra, if I engage my whole being, my entirety, I rejuvenate myself, in body, mind and spirit. My mind become more clear, the stress of the day
is gone. Just few minutes of this practice offers miracles. When I become stillness,
in body and mind, I get in touch with my Real Identity.
Now try with me a simple meditation, to center yourself, calm your mind,
open your heart.
Please sit whit the spine straight, on the floor or on a chair. Bring your hands together in prayer pose in front of your heart. Keep your chin slightly in, eyes closed, concentrate at the third eye. Breathe calm, long and deep, through the nose.
Continue for a minute. Nowget ready to chant the mantra Sat Nam (True Identity). The sound Sat will be long, the Nam shorter. Inhale deep, and with the exhale chant with all your heart Saaaaaaaaaat Naaam. Keep up chanting this mantra in the same fashion for a few minutes.
At the end inhale deep, hold the breath, then exhale and relax the hands in your lap.
Congratulation. You have done it!
Wahe Guru (I am in awe with this process that brings me from darkness to light)

That Lord is Immaculate; the Lord God is Immaculate.
The Lord is Unapproachable, Unfathomable and Incomparable.
All meditate, all meditate on You, O Dear Lord, O True Creator.
All beings are Yours; You are the Giver of all beings.
So meditate on the Lord, O Saints; He is the One who takes away all pain.
The Lord Himself is the Master, and He Himself is His own servant.
O Nanak, how insignificant are mortal beings!
You are totally pervading within each and every heart;
O Lord, You are the One Primal Being, All-permeating.
Some are givers, and some are beggars; all of this is Your wondrous play!
You Yourself are the Giver, and You Yourself are the Enjoyer.
I know of no other than You.
You are the Supreme Lord God, Infinite and Eternal;
what Glorious Praises of Yours should I speak and chant?
Unto those who serve, unto those who serve You, slave Nanak is a sacrifice.
Those who meditate on the Lord, those who meditate on You,
O Dear Lord, those humble beings dwell in peace in this world.
They are liberated, they are liberated, who meditate on the Lord;
the noose of Death is cut away from them.
Those who meditate on the Fearless One, on the Fearless Lord,
all their fears are dispelled.
Those who have served, those who have served my Dear Lord,
are absorbed into the Being of the Lord, Har, Har.
Blessed are they, blessed are they, who have meditated on the Dear Lord;
slave Nanak is a sacrifice to them.
Devotion to You, devotion to You, is a treasure, overflowing, infinite and endless.
Your devotees, Your devotees praise You, O Dear Lord, in many and various ways.
For You, so many, for You, so very many, O Dear Lord, perform worship
and adoration; they practice penance and endlessly chant in meditation.
For You, many - for You, so very many read the various Simritees and Shaastras;
they perform religious rituals and the six ceremonies.
Those devotees, those devotees are good, O servant Nanak,
ho are pleasing to my Lord God.
You are the Primal Being, the Unrivalled Creator Lord;
there is no other as Great as You.
You are the One, age after age; forever and ever, You are One and the same.
You are the Eternal, Unchanging Creator.
Whatever pleases You comes to pass. Whatever You Yourself do, happens.
You Yourself created the entire Universe, and having done so,
You Yourself shall destroy it all.
Servant Nanak sings the Glorious Praises of the Creator, the Knower of all.
Finally I feel myself today, as I can acknowledge that I am vibrating within the strength of my identity. Why? Because I simply woke up in the Amrit Vela, the ambrosial hours before dawn, to do my practice of yoga, prayers, chanting.
Discipline is necessary, Its such a giver discipline! It becomes our second nature, we just do it. I see it very clear now, through my journeys, my changes, upgrades, revolutions...thank God for discipline, that allowed me to perform perfect yoga and meditation sets every morning, 3 years ago when I was so sick that during the rest of the day I could only sit in silence, or lay down, like a zombie. Small miracle, I would say. It was my touch stone, at a moment of illness when I could not hold on anything. The physical imbalance effected my emotional, mental, spiritual inner world so powerfully, to the extent that any thought or image would give me nausea ,depression, anxiety. I hold on my practice, that gave me resilience, offered me stamina even when medically was not possible to detect any trace of it! It saved me, as always does.
Gratitude, gratitude to the practice, the discipline, the resilience in me, such a gift the Creator instilled in me! I only have to keep it alive, so she can keep me alive.
