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.
For now I'm meditating with the mantra:
