I bow to the infinite teacher within, and open myself to the infinite source of wisdom and creativity within me.
At the beginning of any Kundalini Yoga practice we tune in with the Adi Mantra. This mantra calls upon the Creator, the Divine Teacher inside every human being. It establishes a strong and clear connection so that we can receive the highest guidance, energy and inspiration. Always chant it at least three times before beginning any practice of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan.
ONG is the Creator; NAMO means reverent greetings or salutations; GURU is the giver of the technology (GU = darkness, RU = light ); DEV means transparent (non‐physical).
Pronunciation: ONG uses the conch in the nasal cavity to create this initiating sound, feeling a vibration around the nasal cavity; ONG NAAMO GUROO DAYV NAAMO is the traditional transliteration.
