Although Aquarian Sadhana wouldn't be complete without Morning Call and all of the tremendous preparation that it provides for our practice, Wah Yantee truly marks the beginning of the sadhana journey for me. Perhaps it is the beginning of the music itself or the reverberations created by Morning Call, but when I begin chanting Wah Yantee I can't help but feel joyful and vital.
The historical account of Wah Yantee is a beautiful one. It was given by Patanjali, the author of the Yoga Sutras. It is said that over two-thousand years ago, he was lecturing students on prophets who would come into the world and that he prophesied Guru Nanak - the First Guru in the Sikh tradition - as well as the "Wahe Guru" mantra. Yogi Bhajan said that this mantra creates a connection with the Infinite Self, strengthens our intuition and take us beyond the physical world of our meditation. It is an ancient mantra, with vast creative energy, that represents thousands of years of prayer.
I believe we can use this representation and the great creative power of this mantra to ask for the aspects of the Divine that we would like to embrace. Asking ourselves: What do I need in this moment? In this meditation? In this day? While moving through through this life, in this body? Bliss. Prosperity. Divinity. Tranquility. Dignity. Abundance. Fearlessness. Peace. Power. Beauty. Courage. Harmony. Grace. And then, with an open heart, surrendering all of those prayers into the limitless possibility of this mantra, knowing and trusting that it has been received.
With love and light,
