Mantra for Love: Sopurkh

This article was originally written by Ramdesh Kaur for 3HO

There is nothing more powerful than the prayer of a woman, and I strongly believe that it is a responsibility and an honor for women to support their men in the process of union with the Divine.  Imagine the results for the men in our global community if each woman chose three men to recite Sopurkh for, even if only for 40 days. We could profoundly change our community, and then turn our hearts and prayers outward and profoundly change our world.  This is my personal story with Sopurkh, but I challenge all women who love the teachings of Kundalini Yoga to discover their own story with it.  Let’s band together as a flock of eagles and help lift the men in our lives to their highest destiny.

There is a beautiful practice in the tradition of Kundalini Yoga that involves the recitation of the mantra So Purkh or Sopurkh. Sopurkh was given by Guru Ram Das, the 4th guru of the Sikhs, to women as a way of helping them raise the vibration of the men in their lives. A woman can recite Sopurkh for a particular man in her life, such as her husband, to help him live up to his full potential; or she can recite it to attract her perfect mate if she has not met him yet. Sopurkh, if recited for a minimum of 11 times a day for 40 straight days, is said to manifest God in physical male form before the eyes of a woman.

I had been reciting Sopurkh for 39 days for the men in my life. It was a beautiful, healing process that I could feel was releasing my own karma around men. Many nights I had dreams where I met old boyfriends for tea and we had conversations about our present day lives and said goodbye. I could feel karma lifting and ties being cut. I could also see positive changes happening in the lives of the men for whom I was saying the prayer.

On the 40th day of my recitation, I happened to met the Dalai Lama. He came to Parmarth Niketan in Rishikesh to speak and stayed in a room just down the hall from mine. He shook my hand and looked kindly into my eyes. Ladies and gentleman, Sopurkh works. God in male physical form was manifested in front of me on the 40th day. One week previously I had no idea that the Dalai Lama would be coming to Rishikesh, and on the 40th day of my meditation, I received the blessing of the one who many consider to be the holiest man alive.

I’m still reeling from the meeting. His energy was graceful and peaceful, self-confident and humble. I certainly can’t stop my meditation now—if that happens at day 40, what can happen at day 90 or even day 1,000?

A beautiful recording of Sopurkh was done by the lovely Nirinjan Kaur Khalsa (Sopurkh That Primal God).

  1. For me… So Purkh open the Sky for me. Was awesome… of course I get a man… but ALSO I got a lot of things in what I was thinking or asking for… I saw many manifestations of my mind :) like miracles…
    Also was like angels or God talking to me… They show me all what I need or asking… some things in few hours… others in few days.

    I did twice a day…
    First, chackra meditation
    Second, OM
    Then, So Purkh.

    Well, after that, I finish with this man because I made an error when I described him.

    Many years after I decided to work with Monks in India, who pray for you, to get a good man.
    Now my work is to help women who want a husband (or a serious partner), with those monks.

    And I use SO PURKH to open the Sky and see miracles in my life.
    Is my favorite mantra, that give me the sensation to be with God and Angels. (Also I felt the sensación of complicity with the divinity).

      Sat Nam Laila, this shabad is written in the language of Gurmukhi. Gurmukhi literally means “the mouth of the Guru, the light which illuminates the darkness.” It is written in Naad, or sacred science of sound, uniting us with the One Infinite Truth. The initial Gurmukhi script originated with Guru Nanak, the first Sikh Guru. You can learn more about Gurmukhi and find a class that teaches Gurmukhi here:

    I recited So Purkh for 40 days, there was misunderstanding between me & someone I was dating. Exactly 40 days later he got in touch, all misunderstandings were clear. Its been 6 months and next year with the grace of Wahe Guru we are getting married.

    • OngKar Kaur Khalsa says:

      Wahe Guru. Thank you for sharing, Nisha Kaur. All the best to you and your fiancé. Love and Blessings.

    I am praying 11 times per day for the entire 40 days. I absolutely love a man and want God’s blessing, guidance, and this brings me back to real love. Praying for my man to come home back to me. For life. With God’s blessing. Thank You for such beautiful music….

    • Glad it worked for you. I’ve not tried but would like to know of are these efforts truly helped after finished reciting? I would like to see miracles happen if its true. Please advise me.
