What is Mantra ?
A scientific way of using a sound current to create a specific state of consciousness.
Why do we chant mantras in Kundalini Yoga?
Chanting mantras, either silently or laud, is a conscious method of controlling and directing the mind. Happiness, sorrow, joy, and regret are vibratory frequencies of the mind. We are creating with every word we speak, with every word we think. When we chant a mantra we are choosing to invoke the positive power contained in these particular syllables. Wheather is for prosperity, peace of mind, increasing intuition, simply by chanting the mantras we are setting vibrations into our motion that shall have an effect. It doesn’t matter if we understand the meaning of the sound or not.
Why Mantras work?
There are 84 meridians points located on the hard palate of the roof of the mouth. The movement of each part of the tongue stimulates these meridian points. The points are like a keyboard input to a computer. The computer is located in the hypothalamus area of the brain. It receives the impulses from the repetition of the patterns of sound in the Shabd. This is translated into instructions that regulate chemical messengers that go to all vital areas of the brain and body. The hypothalamus lies just bellow the thalamus in the middle of the brain. It is connected by blood vessels to the pituitary gland, the master gland of the body. The hypothalamus is known to regulate vital functions like hunger, drinking, body temperature and sleep. It also trigers the regulations of moods, emotional behavior and sexuality. The special patterns of the mantra stimulate the hypothalamus to change the chemistry of the brain. This ajusts the functions of the endocrine system and the metabolism to create a neutral ballanced mind, and to strengthen the immune function. Many positive states of the mind can be created using the Shabd Guru. It can conquer depression, enhance intelligence and intuition, and open the power of compassion.

SO PURKH – Mantra-meditation to attract divine love
This beautiful prayer has the power to uplift the men in your life to their highest consciousness and to attract the ideal partner to your life. So purkh was given by Guru Ram Das, the 4th guru of the Sikhs, to women as a way of helping them raise the vibration of the men in their lives. A woman can recite So purkh for a particular man in her life, such as her husband, to help him live up to his full potential; or she can recite it to attract her perfect mate if she has not met him yet. So purkh, if recited for a minimum of 11 times a day for 40 straight days, is said to manifest God in physical male form before the eyes of a woman. I received this mantra a few times in my life and always is a beautiful, healing process that I could feel was releasing my own karma around men, softens up the energy. I could also see positive changes happening in the lives of the men for whom I was saying the prayer. So purkh works!
This mantra is great for women to ready themselves for the masculine. To create the space for the masculine to arrive in a healthy and organic way that allows for them to be who they are so she can be who she is. A healthy relationship is one which allows for this spaciousness. It can also be helpful for anyone who needs to heal the masculine within, especially men looking to step into their sacred vibration.
That said, reciting the So Purkh for 40 days in order to manifest the Divine in the men in your life is a specific practice. It requires that the mantra be recited aloud in Gurmukhi for 40 days, 11 times a day. (Nirinjan Kaur Khalsa’s version So Purkh That Primal God is 31 minutes long and includes 11 repetitions, which is all you would need for one full day of the So Purkh).
Reciting aloud is important because when your tongue hits the upper palate of your mouth it activates energy meridians that stimulate the endocrine glands to release hormones, causing a change in brain chemistry.
Pronunciation and rhythm are important, and the perfection of each leads to maximal effect. However, since you do not know Gurmukhi, you simply do the best you can and form a relationship to the spirit behind the words, the shabad guru.
The shabad guru is the teacher in the sacred Gurmukhi words, and that shabad guru is an energy that is carried on the words, correctly spoken. The shabad guru is also an energy that is carried into your heart by the purity of your intentions.
My advice to you is to work with Nirinjan’s recording in Gurmukhi, attempting to speak the words as she does, forgiving yourself when you make mistakes.
“Once you recite this mantra correctly, it will give you the power that whatever you say must happen. When you chant this mantra you have the power to surpass anything.”
Jappa means recitation of a mantra. Its a special yoga practice that allows to work with our negative mind and clean it from the negative behavior patterns. While chanting (reading the text again and again) we will increase the certain vibrations, or we will vibrate the Universe, so that we send certain requests in to the cosmos, to change our life or the life our beloved people to the better, because the Universe understands only the language of the frequencies or vibrations.
Jappa is a special process useful for beginners as well for all those who chant this mantra daily. Its a chance to get in touch with a very subtle and very effective and transformative technique of mind purification and redesigning your destiny.
What So Purkh do for men?
– heal traumas and pain of your men (your partner, husband, son, father, brother, friend, any masculine relative or the collective)
– to improve the character and develop as a personality
– to realize a potential
– liquidation of the negativity in their destiny
– supports your men to give up harmful addictions
– to give your son divine qualities (to recite during pregnancy)
– to elevate men till the highest divine consciousness
– to attract opportunities into his life to open his heart and do service for people
OR if you don’t have a partner, you can also attract your soul mate, by vibrating this text in to the Cosmos
The most important component of this meditation is not pronouncing every word accurately but the intention you put behind receiving the vibration of this divine prayer. Are you looking to heal your masculine wounds? Are you looking to receive the masculine in your life? Are you a male who seeks to enter into his divine vibration? Are you looking to heal the connection between yourself and your partner? Having this intention clear in your mind, and even spoken aloud is paramount.
“Attracting a soulmate? Well, now this is definitely a matter that we take very seriously. Really, it’s simple. You are your own soul’s mate. The creative consciousness within each being is that being’s soulmate. It’s true that chanting So Purkh can support the men in a woman’s life on their spiritual journey. So Purkh can also conjure the presence of God in a woman’s life. She might see him in the form of a man, but she can realize that the male energy within her consciousness is the soulmate that she continually searches for. Her search for a soulmate has less to do with finding a companion, but has everything to do with the beauty and perfection of the process of searching, that pure state of longing.
A woman’s prayer is powerful, but a woman’s prayer when she is in search, when she is longing, is even more powerful because her prayer is accompanied by the energy of the search. Those are the real companions: Prayer and Longing. Prayer and Longing are the lovers. Then, in this devotional state, when she engages in chanting So Purkh, she can synchronize her mind with the Naad, the sacred sounds of the primal divine creative energy. She can go into ecstasy and feel the Beloved’s heartbeat within her heartbeat and within the heartbeats of all beings. She can totally synchronize every beat of her being with the beat of the Primal Being. Her soul will be at peace. So, a woman who chants So Purkh can anchor her being with the Naad of the Beloved’s heartbeat.
Yogi Bhajan said, ‘Human love is for one thing only: to love your soul. Then, the Infinite world around you will be in love with you.’ That’s it. We’ve come full circle back to love and oneness. The truth is simple. If it is not simple, it is not the truth. Dissolve into the wisdom of ‘God and Me. Me and God. Are One.’ And you will realize the soulmate that is always available in the here and now.”
