The sound “Hummm” is a bija mantra that vibrates within the 4th (heart) chakra. It governs our ability to love unconditionally and to heal.
The love of the heart chakra is divine love, love as a state of being, and it brings with it a profound sense of inner peace.
The meditation using this mantra was first taught by Yogi Bhajan on April 19th, 2001 in Los Angeles, U.S.
“The most difficult thing to believe is “We are we and we are God.” I may teach another 100 years, but I will not be able to convince you that you are God. Occasionally, you do not even believe that you are a part of God. You do not even believe that the One who rotates this Earth can take care of your routine. Once you believe that you are God, Mother Nature will start working for you. Just sit down, close your eyes, calm down and be. Practice this meditation to be a creative human being.”

With mantra meditation, the use of a mantra is used to focus the thoughts while quieting the mind. Mantra meditation exists in many different cultures along with a variety of practice techniques.
Daily practice of mantra meditation can awaken within you a deeper spiritual awareness and allow you to make that awareness a part of your daily life.

Sit in a comfortable cross-legged position (preferable sukhasana pose) with your hips elevated above your knees, with your eyes closed and with your hands resting on your laps. This will help you sit with a straight spine, which is the best position for your body to absorb the mantra’s vibrations and concentrate on your intention. Close your eyes and concentrate on your breath until you are completely relaxed.
Start to recite the mantra aloud or in your head. In addition, from the starting position, the forearms and hands move out to the sides, palms facing down. Pull the navel point in energetically and lift the solar plexus and diaphragm smoothly in a focused motion. As the arms move back in, the navel is released. The navel is pulled in as the arms again move back out to the sides. Continue the mantra recitation and hands movement for at least eleven minutes.

Amitayus Buddha is commonly described seated in a meditation posture with a kalasha in His hands, which contains amrita (the elixir of immortality) and leaves of the Ashoka tree. It represents “a long life without the misery of disease.”
Daily practice of Buddha Amitabha mantra will eliminate the heavy guilt ever since beginningless and will get blessedness and wisdom of endlessness. The “A” in Amitabha represents the original nature of “impartial and equal attitude towards all beings”; also translates as the mantra and the mother of all Buddhas.

Mantras from Sikh tradition are very powerful and should not be used without proper intent and wisdom. These mantras are an instrument of the mind, a sacred vibration which is a coded sound or phrase, so you can use them to enter into a deep state of mediation.
This mantra is very purifying and it is commonly chanted at the conclusion of evening ceremonies at the Gurdwara and also chanted as part of Sikh funeral services.
Spiritual awakening is the realization that you are not a physical body or mind, but the pure conscious awareness beyond both. The first thing the mantra does is remove everything that is not aligned with the Supreme Consciousness.
This commonly begins with the mind. You will find that when you practice mantra meditation, all type of memories, thoughts, and emotions are coming up. Those should be witnessed without judgment. The mind is being defragmented, like your hard disk, by the power of the Kundalini mantra.
The mantra also purifies the energy body, and even the physical body ultimately, after all, the physical body is just the densest manifestation of the energy (prana) body, which is the blueprint and template of the physical body. When the energy body gets transformed, the physical body too will change.
Moreover, the mantra has the power to dissolve negativity, both outside you and within you, and it supports you in concluding your day in peace, happiness and tranquility. This mantra can be found on pages 12 to 13 of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh Holy Scriptures.
By practicing this mantra, the energy is stimulated to rise up the spinal column and activate the pineal gland (also known as the third eye or Ajna chakra). Once activated, this energy center enables you to properly use the prana of the mind and emotions.
Furthermore, chanting the mantra will shift brain activity to the frontal lobe which will improve your mood and create awareness. Thanks to the power of the mantra, in this awakened state of consciousness, you are able to be in control of yourself rather than being controlled by your emotional body.
“The active mind becomes still when you meditate, and the passive mind becomes active. When thoughts come to you, don’t get upset; let them pass through. After some time of meditation practice, you will find a time when no thought will be released by the passive mind. Then you will enjoy a state of bliss.” – Yogi Bhajan

A time for new projects, aspirations and beginnings, and offering your reverence and dedication to the Goddess Shakti is an auspicious deed.
Mother Durga and her nine avatars or aspects are revered by Hindus devotees across the world. Of the nine forms of Universal Mother, also known as Shakti, Katyayani Mata is worshiped and adored as the 6th form of Navdurga.
According to Hindu tradition religious texts, Goddess Parvati (the Hindu Goddess whose love saved the world) was born at the home of saint Katya, hence, this aspect of Goddess Parvati is known as Katyayani. The Goddess stands for knowledge, the triumph of good over evil, and courage.
Moreover, in Hindu traditions like Tantra and Yoga, the Goddess is ascribed to the sixth chakra – Ajna (also known as the 3rd eye chakra) and Her blessings are invoked by concentrating and meditating on this energy point.
The third eye chakra is associated with light. As you work with this energy vortex, you may want to see the Ajna chakra as access to a cosmic vision, illuminating everything as it is without the filter of your actions from the past, your judgment, or your expectations.
The Goddess inspires women to fight for their rights, to face challenges, for what is right and believes in their inherent strengths and wisdom. Girls who worship the Goddess on the sixth day of Navratri pooja are blessed with the desired and perfect husband to fulfill their destiny.

Namgyalma is a Bodhisattva commonly illustrated white in color, with 3 faces and 8 arms. Buddha Amitabha is sitting in the Bodhisattva’s upper right palm, meaning that her ultimate realization is equivalent to that of Amitabha Buddha’s, and is granting the blessing of Buddha Amitabha.

For humans, the current life will be their last rebirth from the womb.
