“The Mind. It’s Projection and Multiple Facets,” by Yogi Bhajan with Gurucharan
Singh Khalsa, PhD, Kundalini Research Institute, Espanola, NM, 1998, page 151—“Meditation for the Sattvic Guna.”
Before beginning any Kundalini Meditation,
please Sit Straight and Tune In.
Listen to Soul’s Whispers!
This meditation will refine
the sattvic guna of your mind. Sit down very calmly and quietly. Make your spine straight.
Put your hands on opposite shoulders. Your arms must cross. Hold your shoulders
well, the arms relaxed on the chest. Close your eyes. Listen to this tape of the mantra.
(You can buy a single track download of this mantra very inexpensively when you click here, then scroll down to the Downloads. My favorite one for
this is by Guru Nam Singh in the album "Chants for Haiti.") And here is a free one that has been timed for
this meditation using chimes.

As you listen to the instruments play this tune, whistle with it. Hear the sound
of the whistle at the brow point. Keep the eyes closed. Inside of yourself, be very
calm, quiet. This is a posture of peace. Continue 15-31 minutes.
Then begin long,
slow, deep breathing. Mentally listen to the echo of your whistling. Hear the sound
you created before. Bring your unified power of the mind, the subtle sattvic (refined and peaceful) guna
(energy condition) of the mind to listen. Once you learn to listen this way, you can listen in exactly
the same way to what God’s Will is. When you can still the mind, refine it, command its guna, then
you can listen to God’s Will, discern what it is, then act. Life will be very easy, content, and
fulfilled. In the Bible you are told the same thing. There is a word called “Behold.”
Behold yourself. Be within yourself and listen. Continue for 3 to 11 minutes.
End with the three
powerful breaths: inhale deep through the nose, hold for 5-10 seconds, then exhale powerfully through the
mouth. As you hold the breath in, put all the pressure downward on your shoulders with your hands.
Press them down, and keep the spine steady and straight. Repeat the breath three times.
