In honor of my upcoming album Angels & Space, I'm releasing one of my favorite songs from the album as a single. It's free for a limited time! Make sure to check out the fundraiser for more info.
As taught in the kundalini yoga tradition, chanting this mantra known as "Rakhe Rakhanhar" helps against fluctuations of the mind and the illusion of negative forces. It can be translated to mean, "You are in a place of protection, flow, and guidance."
Rakhay rakhanhaar aap ubaariun
Gur kee pairee paa-eh kaaj savaariun
Hoaa aap dayaal manho na visaariun
Saadh janaa kai sung bhavjal taariun
Saakat nindak dusht khin maa-eh bidaariun
Tis saahib kee tayk naanak manai maa-eh
Jis simrat sukh ho-eh saglay dookh jaa-eh
"God Himself is looking out for us,
gives us the light, and takes care of our affairs.
God is merciful, and never forgets us.
God guides us, giving us good people to help us.
God does not allow hurt to come to us.
I take comfort in the thought of God.
When I remember God, I feel peaceful and happy
and all my pain departs." -Spirit Voyage
*Special Note: God to me is a spirit filled word connecting me to everything and everyone. Also, it can be thought of as goddess or (god =good orderly direction or generator, organizer, deliverer or destroyer). You can decide what feels best for you. It can be felt as great spirit, source, creator, replace the meaning to what makes your heart sing!
More on the Mantra and Effects:
"These words of the saint Guru Arjan are for complete protection. It is from the evening prayer Rehiras, which adds energy to one’s being, and helps when you are physically weak or have limited wealth. It is a victory song that allows us to be guided by the Divine graceful and merciful hand. It does away with the obstacles to fulfilling one’s destiny. Chanting this mantra helps against fluctuations of the mind." -Spirit Voyage
