Laya Yoga is a science of meditation relating breath, rhythm and mantra to produce higher states of consciousness.
Hum Dhum - Tantric style call and answer meditation used by Yogi Bhajan throughout the world.
This mantra has been chanted since ancient times to open the heart and create a powerful force for communication. Guru Gobind Singh is credited with saying that this ancient mantra contained the rhythm of the beat of a galloping horse. Hum is a mantra meaning the God within ourselves, Dhum signifies the God outside. Microcosm and macrocosm. Har is the creative power of the universe. Sing with it, dance to it or exercise with it.
Waheguru - Tantric style call and answer meditation used throughout the world.
We will use the mantra of Wahe Guru chanted in a special form and rhythm. It is a Guru Mantra that means; the ecstasy of God-consciousness that is beyond words to express.
Note - The chanting was recorded in tantric style (men and women alternating.) However, to do the meditation as it was given you may sing every line.

Mata Mandir pours devotion into each note that he sings. His gentle voice creates a sacred atmosphere for healing and connectedness, helping students calm their minds and open their hearts. His Sikh-inspired mantras invite listeners to have a personal experience of the Divine.
A longtime student of Kundalini Yoga Master Yogi Bhajan, Mata Mandir learned early on about the power of the sound current for elevation. "Yogiji told me a long time ago that if you play any instrument in a rhythmic pattern, that will put you into harmony with the whole universe," he says. Inspired by Yogi Bhajan's life-changing teachings, Mata Mandir then embarked on a journey of helping others come in tune with the rhythm of the universe. "Everything has a frequency and vibration, everything has its own song," he says. "When you tune in to sounds of the world, like the sound of your breath or your heartbeat, for example, the world becomes different. You create a new intelligence in your life and you begin to see rhythm where before you only saw chaos."
Mata Mandir currently performs and teaches classes on the science of chanting and listening both across the United States and internationally. In his upcoming book, Naad Yoga - the Yoga of Sound Workbook, he explains how one can use mantras to stimulate the brain and glandular system and reach deep states of bliss. "There's a cascade of chemical changes in every word we speak," he says.
Sharing a deep passion for Naad Yoga, Mata Mandir uses music to guide his students to the present moment and into a natural state of empowerment. Adding to his detailed teachings on chanting, he also emphasizes the importance of learning to deeply listen. "The eyes can create a lot of illusion," he says. "But the ears are very accurate and can distinguish all different notes, all different sounds."
