Miracle Mantra Marathon: Dhan Dhan Ram Das Guru

Saturday, 14 October – 9:30AM-12:30PM • Clerkenwellbeing

In honor of the anniversary of Guru Ram Das' birth (which is on 9 October), join us at Clerkenwellbeing to chant Dhan Dhan Ram Das Guru for 2 1/2 hours. You can deepen your meditative practice as you chant Dhan Dhan Ram Das Guru which Yogi Bhajan said can bring miracles into your life and make the impossible possible.

The fourth of the ten Sikh Gurus, Guru Ram Das is considered to be the patron saint of Kundalini Yogis. Yogi Bhajan called him the Lord of Miracles and meditating on his name can bring deep healing and a connection with the divine. Meditating on Dhan Dhan Ram Das Guru can also bring bounty, beauty and bliss.

There is a science to the sound, so it is not necessary to be a Sikh - or even to know what the words mean - to benefit from this meditation. You benefit from the physical act of chanting. Through the generation of sound, you create a vibration which stimulates the pituitary gland. Movement of the tongue stimulates 84 meridian points in the mouth which also impacts the pituitary gland. The entire glandular system is affected allowing you to strengthen the immune system, increase energy, calm the mind, heighten intelligence and intuition, and experience a state of bliss.

Everyone is welcome to join this mantra marathon, regardless of prior experience with Kundalini Yoga or with long meditations. If you feel uncertain about or a little intimidated by the thought of meditating for such a long period of time, you might find helpful our recent article about rising to the challenge of a 2 ½ hour meditation.

Please bring a bottle of water to drink and a shawl or wrap to keep warm. Finally, you are encouraged - but not required - to cover your head, which helps to contain the energy you produce while chanting. If you do not have a head cover, some will be available for purchase for £3.

TRANSLATION:

Blessed, blessed is Guru Ram Das; the One who created You has also exalted You.
Perfect is Your miracle; the Creator has installed You on a throne.
Sikhs as well as all Conscious people recognize You because you manifest the Creator.
You are unchanging, unfathomable and immeasurable;
You have no end or limitation.
You are unchanging, unfathomable and immeasurable;
Those who serve You with love are carried across the sea of existence.
The five obstacles of lust, anger, greed, pride and attachment:
You have beaten them and driven them out.
Blessed is Your realm, and True is Your magnificent glory.
You are Nanak, You are Angad, and You are Amar Daas;
When I recognize You, my soul is comforted.
