Sat Nam Lovely!
This is another of my favorite Opening the heart center Meditations. The mantra is absolutely beautiful!
Sat Kartar mantra meaning:
”God is the Doer.”
This mantra can also be translated as “Doer of the Truth” and, when repeated as an affirmation, will increase the energy flow of the heart.
The word “Sat” in the mantra is first identifying the Soul’s True Sound. “Kartar” literally translates as ”Doer,” and when the two words are mixed, it is to say “Doer, Manifestor, or Walker of the Truth.”
Sat Kar Tar is a key to living in a state of faith. We are calling our souls to walk, to experience, to do. When we open to the flow [of the Universe], we establish a path for the Universe to flow back to us in response.
Practicing the mantra balances the functioning of the endocrine system, which normalizes the production of hormones, and that generates a general wellness system.
How to do the meditation: (make sure to watch the video)
Sit in an Easy Pose, with a light jalandhar bandh.
Eyes: The eyes closed, looking up, focusing at the Brow Point.
Mantra: SAT KARTAAR
As you say SAT, the hands are pressed together in Prayer Pose at the center of the chest. As you say KAR, the hands are extended out from the shoulders, half-way towards the final position. Fingers are pointing straight up. As you say TAAR, the arms are fully extended out to the sides and parallel to the floor, fingers pointing up. Make the transition from step to step a flowing movement.
Time: No specified time. I usually do it for 11 minutes when I'm in a hurry and 31 when I have some time!
If you feel your heart is closed and there is no flow of love, and you want to open your heart, do this meditation.
P.s. Yogi Bhajan gave different ways of meditations to his students. My teacher who was Yogi Bhajan’s student gave me this meditation this way. There are a couple of different ways other teachers teach this meditation and i have done both ways. This way has been my favorite and I felt connected to this meditation this way. Try the other way for yourself and see which one you resonante with the most!
