Sadhana Mantras
 

One of the requirements for becoming certified as a Kundalini Yoga instructor is to attend early morning group sadhana.  Early morning sadhana begins at four oclock in the morning with a recitation of the Sikh prayer Japji Sahib.  At 4:20 is yoga followed at 5:00 by an hour of chanting the seven mantras specifically selected by Yogi Bhajan for this sadhana.  

 

Not long after writing this melody for Rakhe Rakhanhar, I began I found one of the mantras, Rakhe Rakhanhar, particularly difficult to learn.  So, I sat down one day in front of my stereo with a pencil and a piece of paper and worked through the song word by word until I had the rhythm of the mantra written out.  Once I had the words in my head, a melody to go with them wasn't far behind and I soon had written my first mantra song.
