Guru’s Wisdom

by SS Sada Anand Singh, Japan
Winter 2009

My way of sharing Guru’s wisdom in my daily life is simple. In Japan, we often have holistic fairs where I offer free five-minute yoga counseling sessions as “Yogi Khalsa.” I invite the individual to sit down, relax, close his eyes, take a deep breath, and we tune in. After a few minutes of sitting in this healing space, I ask him to open his eyes.

A simple conversation follows:

“How are you?”

“So-so.”

“What’s the difference between “so-so” and great? How do you get beyond the negative self-limiting mental mantras?”

Then we will try a universal mantra such as “I am bountiful, beautiful, blissful” or Sat Nam; whatever is right for that person.

I can tell you that almost daily,I see people touched, expanded, elevated by the Shabd Guru. People who may have done yoga for years, yet without an experience of their true identity, may be forever changed by a “chants” encounter with the Guru.
