This is the latest mantra we’ve been playing with at Chant Choir, not this version which is the one made famous by Snatam Kaur, but one of our own which I must say was sounding absolutely divine.

At last night’s rehearsal we had a lovely intimate group. The winter weather had given most of us colds, so our voices were croaky but our hearts were open. There was something really beautiful about allowing our imperfections to be seen and heard through our voices. It added a certain kind of vulnerability to what we were doing.

I’m getting warm and fuzzies just thinking about it 🙂

Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo

This mantra, also known as the Adi Mantra, comes from the Kundalini yoga tradition and is said to refine the energy within and around us.

Translation:

Ong Namo – I honour the divine and creative power, the source of all that is, that which created the universe and all that it contains

Guru Dev Namo – I bow to the great and divine teacher within me
