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!

Track Name: Wah Yantee (Creativity)
Waa yantee kar yantee, jag dut patee,
aadak it waha, brahmaday trayshaa guroo, it wahay guroo

Great Macroself, Creative Self. All that is creative through time, all that is the Great One. Three aspects of God: Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh. That is Wahe Guru.

More Information

• This mantra was given by Patanjali, a great Yogi. It is said that over two thousand years ago Patanjali was lecturing students on prophets who would come in the Iron Age, the age of Kaliyug. He prophesied Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s coming into the world and gave the “Wah Yantee” mantra, which describes Wahe Guru. The “Wah Yantee” mantra also predicted the coming of the “Wahe Guru” mantra.

• The “Wah Yantee” mantra is known for awakening the intuition. “Wah Yantee” is one of the mantras on every Aquarian Sadhana album. According to Yogi Bhajan, this mantra is the “culmination of hundreds of years of prayer”—which is why we revere this mantra as a gift from those who prayed and practiced for centuries.
Track Name: Mul Mantra (Inner Truth)

Ek ong kar, sat nam, karataa purakh, nirbho, nirvair.
Akaal moorat, ajoonee, saibhang, gur prasaad. Jap!
Aad such, jugaad such, Hai bhee such, Naanak hosee bhee such.

One Creator. Truth is His name. Doer of everything. Fearless, Revengeless, Undying, Unborn, Self-illumined, The Guru’s gift, Meditate! True in the beginning. True through all the ages. True even now. Oh, Nanak, it is forever true.

More Information:
The Mul Mantra translates as the root mantra from which a spiritual foundation is built. The Siri Guru Granth Sahib is based upon the concepts of the Mul Mantra. When speaking about the chanting of this mantra, Yogi Bhajan says, “The Mul Mantra is a fate killer. It removes the fate and changes the destiny to complete prosperity.”
Track Name: Sat Siri (Beyond Death)

Sat siree siree akaal, siree akaal mahaa akaal, Mahaa akaal, sat naam, akaal moorat, wahay guroo

The True Great, Great Deathless, Great Deathless beyond Death, beyond Death, Truth is His name, Deathless form of God, Experience of the Divine

More Information:
• Yogi Bhajan called this the mantra for the Aquarian Age. When we chant it, we affirm that we are timeless, deathless beings. This is one of the Aquarian Sadhana mantras. It is known for giving victory in all aspects of life.

• It is said that when we are challenged in life, there are three impulses we confront: One is to be alone and withdraw, the second is to deny or fantasize about the future, and the third is to live greedily or in scarcity instead of prosperously. This mantra is to help us overcome these tendencies and give courage and fortitude.
Track Name: Rakhay Rakanahaar (Protection)

Rakhay rakhanhaar aap ubaariun
Gur kee pairee paa-eh kaaj savaariun
Hoaa aap dayaal manho na visaariun
Saadh janaa kai sung bhavjal taariun Saakat nindak dusht khin maa-eh bidaariun Tis saahib kee tayk naanak manai maa-eh Jis simrat sukh ho-eh saglay dookh jaa-eh


God Himself is looking out for us,
gives us the light, and takes care of our affairs. God is merciful, and never forgets us.
God guides us, giving us good people to help us. God does not allow hurt to come to us.
I take comfort in the thought of God.
When I remember God, I feel peaceful and happy and all my pain departs.

More Information:
• These are the words of Guru Arjan, the Fifth Sikh Guru, and are for complete protection. It is from the evening prayer (Rehiras), which adds energy to one’s being, and helps when you are physically weak or have limited wealth. It is a victory song which allows us to be guided by God’s graceful and merciful hand. It does away with the obstacles to fulfilling one’s destiny.
• Chanting this mantra helps prevent fluctuations of the mind. This mantra is included in the Aquarian Sadhana and is done as a part of the daily practice in the morning meditations for Kundalini Yoga practitioners.

The prayer has been given to Guru Amar Das. The prayer is manifested by Guru Ram Das. The miracle is complete.

English Lyrics:
You are my life. You are my love. Everlasting peace. Healer of all. Bestower of faith. Bestower of all. I am at your feet, Beloved O Lord. Bring me to thy bliss. Bring me to thy love. The nectar of the naam, rests me in your arms. I am that I am and I am all Yours.

More Information:

• Guru is that which directs one from darkness (gu) to light (ru), from ignorance to the experience of one’s infinite nature. Guru Amar Das is the third of the Sikh Gurus and is the energy of grace and hope when there
is no hope. He lived from 1479 to 1574 and is said to embody generosity and equality.

• Guru Ram Das, his son-in-law, is the fourth of the Sikh Gurus and is the energy of miracles, healings, and blessings. He lived from 1534 until 1581 and is said to embody humility, loving service, and compassion. Ram means “servant of the Lord.”

• If you ask something of Guru Ram Das, he has to bring it to God for you. Give your worries to Guru Ram Das and let him take them to God. The God that rotates the Earth can certainly take care of your problems! This is the mantra for answered prayers.

• As Yogi Bhajan says, “Normally there is no power in the human but the power of prayer. And to do prayer, you have to put your mind and body together and then pray from the soul. ‘Ardas Bhaee’ is a mantra prayer. If you sing it, your mind, body, and soul automatically combine, and without
saying what you want, the need of the life is adjusted. That is the beauty of this prayer.”
Track Name: Ang Sung Wahe Guru/Love Like the Sun (Radiance & Oneness)
Poem by Hafiz:
Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth, “You owe me.” Look what happens with a love like that, it lights up the entire sky.

English lyrics by Ananda Yogiji:
So make your love like the sun and shine down on everyone.

Ang Sung Wahe Guru

The dynamic, loving energy of the Infinite Source of All is dancing within my every cell, and is present in my every limb. My individual consciousness merges with the Universal Consciousness.
The Infinite Being, God, is with me and vibrates in every molecule and cell of my being.

More Information
• As Gurucharan Singh, director of training at the Kundalini Research Institute, writes, “This mantra expresses a universal truth. Repeating it creates a thought, which gradually guides the psyche to adjust itself. It reconnects every fragmented projection of the psyche, each separated part of the body, and synchronizes the finite sense of self to the Infinite Oneness. This act of rejoining the separated parts is the quintessential act of healing. Under attack, under war, under the pressures of fear, this meditation keeps us together, conscious, and ready to act. It brings the inner peacefulness that comes only from the touch and scope of spirit.”
