JapJi is the very first composition in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, (the Sikh Scripture), and is a fundamental description of Gods nature and the nature of man and the universe. Japji is the poetic meditation which links the mind of man to his soul or infinite nature, and relates to the element ether. Japji has the power to control ones "Ji" or soul. Whenever you cannot feel your soul or when the radiance of your soul is weak, Guru Nanak* gave Japji to recite. He said that the forty pauris (stanzas) would liberate humanity from the cycles of birth and death. Each pauri addresses different aspects of the relationship between man and God and each has a specific power and gift that comes with it. The particular power of each pauri lies in the combination of sounds which create the chemical and magnetic change in and around the being who recites it. Enjoy! - Mata Mandir Singh
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."
