The Teacher Within

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.

Prayer for Uplifting the Men in Your Life

Guru Ram Das' So Purkh meditation recited by Siri Kartar Kaur. There is one God.
By Guru's Grace, women chant during the ambrosial hours to call the name of God to manifest here on earth; for our husbands, children, brothers, fathers, and friends.
A prayer that protects and uplifts the men in our lives.

This video is made at the Guru Ram Das Ashram in Los Angeles.

English Translation:
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.

Why Discipline is Necessary in Your Spiritual Practice and the #1 Tip for Staying Disciplined

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.
