The powerful poems (over 63 minutes long) of the two saints intersect and drift across time and space for use in our daily lives to create a vibration where peace can prevail among the human beings of our planet. It is clear that war does doesn't bring peace or prosperity for anyone but the arms merchants and these days the oil companies. Perhaps we can sing for peace to prevail. Pease use this free song for peace as you like. Sing with it, meditate to it, go to sleep with it. You may copy it for your friends, neighbors or give it away with our blessings.
The enemies of peace in these modern times have not changed much since the time of Guru Gobind Singh. Hatred, the use of violence for political and economic ends and corruption in leadership combine to create widespread hardship and poverty for much of humanity. Violence is just the ultimate expression of ignorance or lack of light in the mind.
In Naad Yoga we say that everything in the universe is vibrating. The rocks, the trees, the planets and the stars and we all vibrate at various frequencies. As Einstein said, matter and energy are one. The vibrations or primal Word that created this creation we are a part of, pervades all matter in the universe. Words are also a form of energy. They are crystallized though forms or energy templates that can create heaven for us here on earth or a living hell. The ancient and present day saints and sages understood this fact and also understood that potential power we as humans have for vibrating consciously, the frequency we want to create in our world through our words.
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."
