Mantra for Atomic Radiation: Free Recording of Praana Apaana by Sat Darshan Singh and Sirgun Kaur

The recent earthquake in Japan shook up more than an ocean or a nation. It shook the world. We can interpret shaking as the physical phenomenon of the quake itself, but also as an energetic aftershock that woke us up to the universal heart.

Screen Shot 2014-05-19 at 10.43.33 AMEven if we were far removed from the island of Japan, we saw the rubble that could have been our own home, or the displaced people that could have been our neighbors. We saw the tears that could have been ours (and some may have been). We felt the pain of their loss. By the grace of Youtube and Facebook, we were able to experience all of this alongside our Japanese brothers and sisters. Long distance, language and cultural barriers did not apply.

We had felt this before with Hurricane Katrina and the earthquake that struck Haiti last year, as well as with many other international events. Yet, it seems to me, we responded to this incident with even more awareness of our Oneness as an Earth family.

Shortly after the Japanese earthquake, even those harboring doubt about our inter-connectedness had no choice but to understand (on a certain level): the threat of radiation was Universal!

As yogis, we have so many amazing tools to call upon in these sorts of “desperate times.” I am so thankful for 3HO for posting the radiation survival kit on their website, where we can find an anti-radiation juice cocktail, detoxifying bath recipes, as well as a mantra-mediation that creates a protective aura around our genes.

Being the forward-thinking enterprise that it is, Spirit Voyage asked Sat Darshan Singh and I if we could record something for people to chant along with. After all, no such recording of the little-used “Praana Apaana” mantra (Ed: Read Kundalini Yoga Meditation for Atomic Radiation for the full meditation) existed thus far. We believe this is a very important mediation for people to know and practice right now, so we were delighted to be able to serve!

(Editor’s Note:  The words are:


On the track you will hear Prittam Hari’s guitar playing, and il’il Paz-el’s percussion, as well as Sat Darshan’s voice, and mine.

I am so excited about this project, I’ve decided to create a “music video” of people all around the world chanting along to the mediation track. I’d love for you to participate!

All you need to do is send 30 seconds of footage to Sit in the correct posture, facing the camera, and chant along to the meditation track we’ve made.

Humans of the world unite! Strike the musical strings of your heart and protect your radiance from radiation!

(Editor’s Other Note: A very special thank you is due to Ek Ong Kaar Kaur Khalsa, who approached me with the melody for this mantra/meditation and asked that I reach out to a musician to record it.  Without her inspiration and humble suggestion, we wouldn’t have this wonderful recording to share with the community.  Thank you Ek Ong Kaar!)
