As I chanted the mantra with Gurumayi in this beautiful recording, my mind became very clear and still. It felt as if the mantra had gently bathed my mind, cleansing it so that its inner light could shine forth with greater purity and clarity.

For a long time I have been interested in learning about the effects a particular raga has on our experience of a chant. After reading the introduction and listening to the chant, I closed my eyes and began to feel the mantra and started chanting it. I felt the vibrations inside me and became aware of the feelings evoked by chanting the mantra in the Bhairavi Raga. I had a direct experience of the effect of a raga.

Chanting in this raga brings me into a deep sense of peace and silence. It gives me the awareness to see all situations as they are, without judging or reacting in a way that causes more stress or frustration.

Mahashivaratri has always inspired in me a sense of mystery, wonder, and reverence. Each February I look forward to immersing myself in the powerful vibrations of the mantra, especially on this holy day. When I read that for this year’s celebration Siddha Yogis would be chanting Om Namah Shivaya in the Bhairavi Raga, I just had to begin chanting right away!

I only had a few minutes before I had to leave my home, but I played the recording and just jumped into the ocean of the mantra and let it wash through my being. To my surprise, I immediately experienced myself sitting with thousands of other Siddha Yogis chanting the mantra with Gurumayi. The mantra instantly transported me into the blessed presence of my Guru and the global Siddha Yoga sangham! My mind became still, and a light pulsation of joy arose in my heart as we sang in community.

I chanted Om Namah Shivaya with this audio clip, and I could see how my body very gently relaxed and my mind went into a state of absolute stillness. By just chanting the mantra for five minutes and listening to my beloved Guru, I was able to enter into a profound meditation.
 
Thank you for these divine gifts!
