The Adi mantra

is used to tune in at beginning of the class

ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO
means I invoke that divine presence which is within me

calling on the inner wisdom within us all


Ong  is vibrated through the nasal chambers stimulating the pituitary gland
Bringing our palms together balances the left or moon side with the right or sun side to bring a balanced body / mind – it centres our energies before we begin
Thumbs against sternum – pressure here helps you to concentrate eyes gently closed and focused at brow point
Concentrate on whats happening to you from the inside out …
Sit up tall shoulders rolled back and down
Bring your thoughts to this time and this place, focus your attention at the brow point
Remain alert yet relaxed

Inhale deeply through the nose
Begin the mantra
ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO

Chant 3 times

  1. once for the inner self (make yourself as concentrated as you can on inner core)
  2. once for the outer self (spread yourself out – as big as you can)
  3. and again for balance of the two (blend the two together)
