Yogi Bhajan Birthday Celebration
2 ½ Hours of Long Ek Ong Kar Meditation
This incredible Sadhana will be hosted by Sada Simran and Marilyn Smith at the Jackson St Studio 2609 Jackson Street on the side of South Capitol Hill. Everyone is welcome. We will teach you the Long Ek Ong Kars if you have never done this before. This is an experience like none other …to chant for 2 ½ hours!
In the Ambrosial hours we chant the sacred sound current, the mind moves into the meditative space, duality recedes, awareness expands, and a state of oneness prevails.
It is said that chanting Long Ek Ong Kar’s, also known as Morning Call, Long Chant, and the Adi Shakti Mantra, opens all the chakras, charges the solar centers, connects the Soul to the Universal Soul, and liberates us from the cycle of karma. The ambrosial hours are the ideal and most effective time of day to chant this mantra. It has been said that a person can attain liberation by chanting this Ashtang (eight-part) mantra correctly for 40 days, for two and one-half hours before sunrise (the ambrosial hours).
“In the time period two-and-a-half hours before the rising of the Sun, when the channels of energy are most clear, if the Mantra is sung in sweet harmony, you will be one with the Lord. This will open the solar plexus, which in turn will charge the solar centers. The person will get connected with the Cosmic Energy, and thus will be liberated from the cycle of time and karma.” ~ Yogi Bhajan
