It was a true blessing to join with Satwant Singh Khalsa to teach the first, Your Path to Prosperity Class, at the SDI Academy Tent this year at Summer Solstice at Ram Das Puri, in Espanola New Mexico. The energy was very high and the prosperous flow created, was felt by all who attended. We shared personal stories about prosperity and led the class through several, practical tools that can be used in a daily practice for abundance and grace.
All of the tools shared in the class are included in this post for all to experience. One participant shared her testimonial of the power created by this class,
“Thank you for offering Your Path to Prosperity Class at Solstice!
My husband’s business signed 3 new clients the very same day I took the class!”
Here is a video with some of the highlights from the class:

The Guru Ram Das Mantra – Guru Guru Wahe Guru Guru Ram Das Guru
This is a mantra of self-healing, humility, relaxation, protective grace, and emotional relief. It calls on the spirit of humility and grace of Guru Ram Das. The Siri Singh Sahib told Satwant Singh many years ago that chanting this mantra was the secret to prosperity (see video highlights above for Satwant Singh’s personal story of the power of this mantra).
The Guru Ram Das Mantra is an ashtang mantra. Ashtang mantras have eight parts. They catalyze the kundalini energy to initiate through your own effort and devotion. The first half of the mantra, Guru Guru Wahe Guru, projects the mind to the Infinite, the source of knowledge and ecstasy. The second half, Guru Ram Das Guru, means “the wisdom that comes as a servant of the Infinite”.
This mantra projects the mind to the Infinite and then brings finite guidance on a practical level.
Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with the spine straight.
Mudra: The hands can be in any comfortable position (Gyan Mudra, folded in your lap, on the knees, etc.).

Mantra: Chant the Guru Ram Das Mantra for 5 – 31 minutes. Sing along with the melody of your choice or recite in a monotone. Try to complete the whole mantra on one breath. Pronunciation: Guroo Guroo Wha-hay Guroo, Guroo Raam Daas Guroo.

Three-Minute Har Prosperity Meditation
Taught by Yogi Bhajan, Summer Solstice 1996
“When there is a vacuum, God must fill it. I’m not saying that you are poor. But you could have more. Giving is the way of the rich—giving services, giving expertise, giving work, giving to others to get blessings, giving something for prayer, giving to the needy…
I’m trying to give you a very handy tool so that you can be anywhere, and you can become rich. I’m not going to give you printed money, but I’m giving you a tool of prosperity. Will that be cool? All right, let’s do it…
To become rich and prosperous with wealth and values is to have the strength to come through. It means transmissions from your brain and the power of your intuition can immediately tell you what to do. By practicing this meditation, you will be in a position to immediately change gears. If you need to go in reverse, you can go in reverse. If you need to go forward, you can go forward…
You should not do it more than 3 minutes when you are working during the daytime or you’ll become too rich!”
POSITION: Sit in Easy Pose with a light Jalandhar Bandh.
MUDRA: Bend the elbows, angling the forearms up and outward with the fingers at the level of the throat. Begin with the palms facing down. Alternately hit the sides of the hands together timed with the mantra below. When the hands hit facing down, the sides of the Jupiter (index) fingers touch and the thumbs cross below the hands, with the right thumb under the left. Yogi Bhajan said that crossing the thumbs in this way is the key to the meditation. When the hands hit facing up, the Mercury (pinkie) fingers and the Moon Mounds (located on the bottom of the palms) hit.
EYE FOCUS: The eyes are 1/10th open. Focus at the tip of the nose.
MANTRA: Chant the mantra HAR with the tip of your tongue as you alternately strike the Jupiter area (palms facing down) and the Moon area (palms facing up). Pull the navel with each HAR. This meditation was taught to the rhythm of Tantric Har by Simran Kaur.
TIME: 3-11 minutes.*Three-Minute Har is a complete kriya in itself and is also the first part of the 5 Part Kriya called Subagh Kriya that the Siri Singh Sahib gave for prosperity. Visit www.sikhdharma.org/subagh-kriya for more info on Subagh Kriya.

The 25th Pauri of Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s Japji Sahib ~ Bahuta Karam
POSTURE: Sit in Easy Pose, with a straight spine.
MUDRA: The hands are resting on the knees in Gyan Mudra (first fingers and thumb tips are touching).
EYES: The eyes may be open or closed.
MANTRA: The 25th Pauri of Japji Sahib. Time: 11 repetitions.
COMMENTS: “If you recite the 25th pauri of Japji 11 times a day, it will bring you prosperity and wealth. It is a promise. There are many people who have done it and they became prosperous. The 25th pauri adds up to seven. It is a platform of levitation. It means wherever you are and whatever you are, this pauri will elevate you, levitate you, to the point of achievement, no matter what! Prosperity is a state produced immediately by the mind. When the sun comes out of the clouds, everything is lit. When the mind comes out of duality, prosperity is there. And the 25th pauri has the power to take away duality, because it covers every aspect of the projection of the self. It works on the tenth body, the Radiant Body.”

The Sacred Art of Dasvandh
What is Dasvandh?
Dasvandh, which literally means “tenth part”, is the tithing practice of contributing a portion of your earnings in the name of your Guru or spiritual source. The principle of Dasvandh is that if you give to the Infinite, Infinity, in turn, will give back to you. It is a spiritual practice through which you build trust in the ability of the Infinite to respond to the flow of love and energy that you give. This energy then expands tenfold and flows back to you in abundance.
The Siri Singh Sahib has promoted the power of tithing, by giving your Dasvandh, as a way to connect with your highest self and as a powerful tool for increasing prosperity. He said,
“Give to God what belongs to God. It is called Das-vandh: One-tenth of your time, income, thoughts, projection, communication, belongings and one-tenth of every act. Every act is blessed in which one-tenth belongs to God.” ~ Siri Singh Sahib – Yogi Bhajan
Starting Your Own Dasvandh Practice
While tithing through Dasvandh is traditionally one-tenth of one’s income, many people give whatever amount they can. Just by starting the process of giving back to your spiritual source, you open up new avenues of returned happiness and abundance in your life. It is one of the greatest leaps of faith that we on a spiritual path can take.
“My Dasvandh today is 40 times my first salary and 400 times my first Dasvandh!” ~ Anonymous Dasvandh Donor
“Many blessings and thank you for your message and for your service. We feel grateful to give at this level every month as we have without break since sometime around 1985. Our lives are a testament to the benefits of giving to the unknown in the name of God, with confidence that God will return that contribution many fold. We are grateful to support the Siri Singh Sahib Ji’s mission. Giving is the greatest gift we give to ourselves.” ~ Anonymous Dasvandh Donor
You too can experience the blessings of Dasvandh and we invite you to take your first step today.

Patience Pays ~ The Path to Prosperity
An affirmation for prosperity by the Siri Singh Sahib Yogi Bhajan
“Patience pays. Wait. Let the hand of God work for you. The One who has created you, let Him create all the environments, circumstances, and facilities and faculties.
Too kaahay doleh paraanee-aa tudh raakhaigaa sirjanhaar
Jin paidaa-is too kee-aa so-ee day-ay aadhaar
Oh individual, why you are in a very doubtful state? The One who has made you will take care of you. The One who has created this Universe, all the planets, planetary faculties and facilities on Earth, He is the One who has created you. Wait. Have patience. Lean on him. And all best things will come to you.
Dwell in God. Dwell in God. Dwell in God. Befriend your soul. Dwell in God and befriend your soul. Dwell in God and befriend your soul. Dwell in God and befriend your soul. All the faculties and facilities of the Creation, which are in your best interest shall be at your feet. You need million things. Million things will reach you if you are stable, established, firm, patient. Remember, Creator watches over you and Creation is ready to serve you, if you just be you.
So please take away the ghost of your life and stop chasing round. Consolidate. Concentrate. Be you. And may all the peace and peaceful environments, prosperity approach you forever. Sat Nam”. © The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan
