Assimilating Gurumayi’s Message for 2016

A Series of Exercises Based on the Four Wheels of the Shaktipat Intensive

Assimilation through Mantra

The Siddha Yoga mantra Om Namah Shivaya means “I bow to my inner Self.” This mantra is chaitanya, enlivened by the Guru’s grace. Each syllable, therefore, vibrates with the spanda, the subtle pulsation of the Self; each syllable arises from and subsides back into the Self.

Mantra japa, or repetition of the mantra, attunes our being to the spanda. As we repeat the mantra Om Namah Shivaya—“I bow to my inner Self”—we immerse our awareness, more and more, in the Self.

In this exercise we will practice mantra japa as a means to imbibe Gurumayi’s Message. As we access the most profound level of our being through mantra repetition, we support the mind and body to become even more receptive to the Guru’s teaching.
