Mantra for the Aquarian Age: Sat Siri Siri Akal

Screen Shot 2014-05-20 at 10.14.50 AMWhen we’re faced with challenges, we all have different reactions.  Some of us retreat and withdraw, finding comfort in hiding ourselves out of view.  Others still deny that anything is going wrong, preferring a fantasy to the harshness of reality.  Still others give into greed or scarcity, preserving a protecting themselves at the expense of others.  Of course, there are positive reactions to challenges.  But the people who face the difficult times with their heads held high, facing their fears and walking forward, and helping others to do the same live with victory.  They have connected to a sense of timelessness and strength that is beyond them and their small circumstances.

In the Aquarian Age, Yogi Bhajan warned, we would need to be victorious.  The challenges that we face will require us to be steady and to connect with something larger than ourselves.  That’s where the Kundalini yoga mantra “Sat Siri Siri Akal” comes in.  Known by Kundalini yogis as one of the mantras in the Aquarian Sadhana, this mantra is actually known as the “Aquarian Mantra”.  It’s ability to allow us to relate to ourselves as timeless, deathless beings grants us victory over circumstances and imparts a deep sense of peace to the chanter.
