Tip of Your Tongue

Mantra as Medicine

Humanity today enjoys great technological ability that could be used to solve world problems. However, many people are full of fear during these times. The Internet and a global culture have brought our world closer in many ways—but at a cost. Your mind is receiving more daily input than ever before in the history of human existence. Luckily, there’s an ancient technology to help sift through all this information.

At the tip of your tongue is a simple way to move out of survival mode, utilizing the unlimited power of your mind through the science of sound, mantra and meditation. A daily mantra practice is one way to align with the power of the creative Universe, helping you to tune in to your own being, while interrelating with this increasingly complex world.

Mantra means mind (man), projection (trang). It is an ancient sacred technology that utilizes breath, sound, mudra (hand position) and sometimes a body posture to give you access to the unlimited power of the Creative Mind. Mantra, as a meditation, will clear your mind of the overwhelming informational input from the world and provide the opportunity to focus inward, so you can become aware of your purpose for being on earth.

Sacred music turns un-productive thoughts and emotions into opportunities to heal, evolve and love. Mantra helps your mind navigate through challenging situations, like “mantra medicine.” Take a few minutes out of your busy day to do this powerful mantra to heal yourself, your loved ones—even the entire planet!

Ra Ma Da Sa, Sa Say So Hung (as taught by Yogi Bhajan)

Ra – Sun
Ma – Moon
Da – Earth
Sa - Impersonal Infinity
Sa Say - Totality of Infinity

This is one of many mantras that will focus your mind and allow you to project the highest aspect of yourself into Creation. The response of the Universe will be to supply your every need and desire so you are able to live the life you love.
