A Shabad to Block Animosity and Bring Protection and Prosperity
Written by Guru Arjan Dev Ji, the fifth Guru of the Sikhs, this powerful shabad can help overcome any obstacle.
“This mantra meditation from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib is a gift to you that will let you penetrate the unknown without fear. It will give you protection and mental balance. It is very simple and rhythmic. If you do it nobly it will be extremely helpful. Whenever you are effective and create a success in your life, you must also generate some opposition and animosity. That is called the Law of Polarity. It is called facing a square in your life. This meditation will totally eliminate enemies and block the impact of animosity forever. It can give you mental self-control and let you command your five tattvas for effective living.” ~ Siri Singh Sahib Ji
The Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan also said that if chanted for 62 minutes, the best time being between 3-4 am, Aap Sahaaee Hoaa can relieve unbearable financial pressure. Many have chanted this mantra to help resolve tricky legal matters with the highest good and outcome for all.
Chant the entire shabad 11 times a day to bring the blessings of protection, focus and abundance into your life.

Aap Sahaaee Hoaa – A Personal Story
Guru Singh, one of the Siri Singh Sahib’s first students, shares the following story:
Thirty eight years ago I was running a booming business as well as teaching. Like today, the economy suddenly tanked and we were way over-leveraged to survive a deep slow down. I sat with Yogi Bhajan at the Los Angeles airport and explained this dilemma. He gave a mantra to me – which was the first time anyone had heard this mantra in our spiritual family – Aap Sahai Hooaa Suchay Daa Sachaa Dooaa – Har Har Har. He said to have it playing in the office 24-7. In 1980 the only way to accomplish this was to use a 60 second cassette loop (made for answering machines). We recorded 60 seconds of this mantra repeating and we played that cassette until the media fell off the tape nine months later. During that nine months we came up with revolutionary ways to not only survive but to thrive. This mantra overcomes all challenges.
