Experiencing Ardas Bhaee

“Normally there is no power in the human but the power of prayer. And to do prayer, you have to put your mind and body together and then pray from the soul. Ardas Bahee is a mantra prayer. If you sing it, your mind, body and soul automatically combine and without saying what you want, the need of the life is adjusted. That is the beauty of this prayer.” — Yogi Bhajan

I heard and recited Ardas Bhaee at White Tantric Yoga yesterday which was a challenging, intense and  powerful experience.  They say one of these sessions can be like weeks/months of therapy.  This was my second time. I attended the session last April and the results were very different. This time I left feeling energized, light, and wanting more. It started at 9am and went until 6pm!

I'm an on-time person which is good considering I am Dominican,  so upon arrival I was matched up with a male partner. We greeted each other and talked for about 2 minutes when we jumped right in with Ong Namo.

I interpreted the Kriyas practiced as going through the stages of a long term relationship in fast forward. 

First few dates while deciding if this person is a good match:
Look each other in the eye and tell each other a story for 62 minutes while holding each other by the tops of the arms. Mantra is playing in the background.

Series of dates before committing to one another:
Look each other in the eye and ask each other probing questions for 62 minutes while interlocking fingers and arms bent in front.

After being committed for a while: 
Turn backs to one another while interlocking fingers and mediating. Remember "God Is" when mind drifts 31 minutes.

Being grateful for one another:
Hold hands as best and comfortably possible eyes closed recite Wahe Guru 31 minutes.

Seeing oneself through the eyes of your partner:
Look each other in the eye while holding each other by the shoulders and recite Ardas Bhaee for 62 minutes.

Choosing to love and embrace the idiosyncrasies of the partner unconditionally:
Embrace in a hug while keeping backs straight and rest chin on each other's shoulders and recite Ardas Bhaee with eyes closed for 31 minutes. 

The next session is in November, last year I could only handle one White Tantric Yoga in a year.  Lets see how many I can handle in 2016. 

For now I'm meditating with the mantra:
