I find that meditation is one of the most delicious items on the menu of life and once you’ve had a taste, once you’ve experienced the nutritional value of doing a sadhana, you’ll be back for another helping of this low-fat, high-energy spiritual food. One way to enhance the sadhana meal is to serve it with a healing and supportive condiment of chant music. The mantras can help keep you centered and awake and, if you’re meditating alone, gives you another voice in the room to connect with. Light of the Naam: Morning Chants by Snatam Kaur is currently my go-to CD for morning meditation. The melodies are sublime and the mantras (as taught by Yogi Bhajan) are written out and transcribed inside the CD cover, which adds another layer of understanding to your practice. There are so, so many meditation CD’s out there. Find one or two that resonate with you. Sit down. Push the Start button. Let it flow.
