    Don't Let Fear Come into Your Heart

    Don't Let Fear Come into Your Heart

    Swami Satchidananda addresses the fear expressed during another health crisis—AIDS. He said that no matter what the disease or condition we face, "The fear of the disease is worse than the disease itself. Many people lose their life because of the fear. Not because of the disease." These words of inspiration, wisdom, and comfort, from a world renowned and beloved Yoga master apply as much today as they did in the 1980s.

    Hari OM

    Hari OM

    "Hari Om" chant led by Yoga master Sri Swami Satchidananda.
    Hari Om is a universal chant and does not belong to any particular religion. Begin with the sound “ha” at the naval. By repeating that sound, the abdomen contracts and you will feel something at the naval area. Try it: Repeat “ha.” Your energy is sleeping at the naval and the repetition of the sound wakes it up. You can feel the “kick” at the naval when you repeat that sound. It’s the best way of giving yourself an energy boost.

    When you repeat “Ha,” you feel it in the abdomen and when you repeat the second syllable spelled “ri” but pronounced, “re,” the sound comes up to your throat. Then the moment you begin repeating the “O” sound of Om, the entire head vibrates above the throat. And when you close the lips to repeat “mmmmm,” the vibration rises up into the crown of the head and even above the head. You are literally lifting yourself up and above to have communication from above. This is a very simple, but efficient practice to have communication with a higher vibration.

    From the CD (available for digital download): Integral Yoga Kirtan from Shakticom.org.
