For fans of devotional chant, Kundalini yoga practitioners, meditators—or anyone curious about this elevating music—Kundalini Morning Chants is a beautiful listening experience and a tool to actively engage with these powerful invocations.
The first six mantras on this album are known collectively as the “Aquarian Sadhana.” These mantras were chosen and put into this particular sequence by Yogi Bhajan. Together, they form the cornerstone of Kundalini Yoga practice, and provide the focus for the 62-minute meditation in the quiet hours of the morning just before sunrise.
Each mantra connects with and activates a particular facet of the soul, bringing healing, balance, and deep remembrance of one’s Sat Nam, or true nature.
Many Kundalini Yoga practitioners who are also musicians have created melodic songs out of these mantras, each expressing their own unique experience of the Naad, or divine sound current. We offer our interpretation of the Aquarian Sadhana to be part of your morning practice—or to use whenever you would like to drop into the golden chain of consciousness, to deepen your divine awareness, and expand your peaceful bliss-nature.
The last three songs on the album are some of our favorite mantras from the Kundalini Yoga tradition, each of which is associated with a particular healing and miraculous effect.
Please note that the “Wahe Guru Wahe Jio” mantra on Track 5 is normally 22 minutes long for the morning sadhana practice. We shortened it to 11 minutes to be able to include the extra songs on the album. If you are going to use the album for practice, we recommend you repeat Track 5.
It’s important to begin your day by connecting to your own inner beauty and peace. This opens a flow of grace so you can more easily radiate and shine your light out to the world. But we invite you to listen and sing along anytime. These mantras are beneficial at all hours of the day!
