When the crop of life has matured, it bends, breaks and perishes; why take pride in that which comes and goes? ~ Guru Nanak Dev Ji

This is a three-way energy. This mantra will help people who are going through Shakti Pad.
Posture: Sit in Easy Pose.
Mudra: Extend the first two fingers of the right hand and the index finger of the left hand. Touch them together at the tips to form and upside down “V” pointing up. The remaining fingers are bent and joined with the fingers of the other hand from the first to second joint. Thumb tips meet and point toward the body. With the elbows bent, bring the hands up and in until they meet just below the level of the throat.
Eyes: Eyes are closed.
Mantra: Chant in a monotone the following mantra:
Ardaas Bhayee, Amar Daas Guroo
Amar Daas Guroo, Ardaas Bhayee
Raam Daas Guroo, Raam Daas Guroo
Raam Daas Guroo, Sachee Sahee
Translation: The prayer is offered, oh Guru Amar Das. Guru Amar Das, the prayer is offered. Guru Ram Das, Guru Ram Das Guru Ram Das, it is truly sealed.
Time: 11 minutes
Comments: This is a three-way energy. This mantra will help people who are going through Shakti Pad. If a man cannot relax himself voluntarily, cannot communicate voluntarily, cannot understand himself voluntarily, and cannot project within, the outside world becomes nothing but a misery.
