Prosperity Meditation – Purify the Subconscious


POSTURE: Sit in Easy Pose.

EYE FOCUS: The eyes are closed. Focus at the tip of the nose.

MUDRA: Using your intuition, choose a mudra for the left hand and place it at the knee. Place the right hand over the heart on the upper left chest.

MANTRA: Chant the mantra. Chant with the tongue, not the mouth.

Har Har Har Har Gobinday
Har Har Har Har Mukanday
Har Har Har Har Udaaray
Har Har Har Har ApaarayHar Har Har Har Hareeang
Har Har Har Har Kareeang
Har Har Har Har Nirnaamay
Har Har Har Har Akaamay

TIME: 5 to 11 minutes.

GUIDELINES FOR PRACTICE: Practice the meditation for 5 to 11 minutes before going to bed. Then sleep with the mantra playing through the night. The following morning, before you get out of bed, chant this mantra. Sleep with this mantra and wake up with this mantra.

COMMENTS: In the tongue, the pair of nadis called the ida and pingala meet with the central nadi, the shushmana. That is the only place where the three powers meet—ida, pingala and shushmana; nowhere else is that union possible. Everywhere else they crisscross each other; the tongue is the only place where all three are straight. When you chant this mantra it will create an experience of unison—an intercourse, a merger—and you will be happy. So chant with your tongue not with your mouth.

It takes about 30 seconds to chant this. So, in one minute you can chant this whole Ashtang Mantra twice. There are eight powers described in these words—the eight facets of God that you have to deal with, whether you like it or not: Gobinday, one who sustains us; Mukanday, one who liberates us; Udaaray, one who takes us across, uplift us; Apaaray, one who is Infinite; Hareeang, one who does everything; Kareeang, one who by grace everything is done; Nirnamay, one who is not bound down, he is without the identity of the name; Akaamay, one who is by itself. These are the eight facets. HAR is a Shakti Yog mantra. HAR is the original God, and sometimes, if you chant just that one word, HAR, with me, you will realize God in just a couple of seconds.

When your subconscious hears this mantra at night, it will not allow for garbage. The subconscious will become pure. Acknowledge and practice this for 10-15 minutes in the evening and in the morning; it will do the work. Learn one thing: become the hub and everything will come to you, become the rim and you will go everywhere. When you want two hundred thousand things, where are you going to go? You go crazy running this way and that way, and who cares? That’s not living; that is hustling.

      When this meditation was shared by the Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan, it was common to have “Auto-Reverse” cassette players. Today, in 2020, this can be done by setting your digital device or phone to “Repeat Mode” so that an audio track will repeat continuously. If you can not find a recording of this mantra by a known recording artist, you can make your own by simply recording your own voice reciting the mantra and then use that to play continuously through the night.

      • ‘Chant with the tongue, not the mouth.’ I can’t say it properly when not using the mouth – is it still ok to record my voice with incorrect enunciations and play it throughout the night? Thanks

        • Pritpal Singh Khalsa says:

          Yes, this can seem strange. The intent here is to focus more on making the sounds predominantly with your tongue and minimize the movement of your lips. If you make a recording of your own voice, use your lips in a normal way so that the pronunciation on the recording is as correct as possible. Then when you chant aloud with the recording you can limit the use of your lips.

          • Is it ok if the mantra is sung by different artists – and its played without sound throughout the night? Does my mobile have to be right next to me on the bed? Or is it ok if its in the same room? Thanks :)

          • Pritpal Singh Khalsa says:

            The actual recording you use can be by anyone. The point of playing it throughout the night is that the volume should be loud enough that you can just barely hear it, wherever it may be in your room, but not so loud that it disturbs your sleep.

          • Pritpal Singh Khalsa says:

            You can try all the meditations. But the instruction to use only the tongue is not a general instruction so only use that technique when it is specifically mentioned in the instructions. It is common to practice a meditation for at least 40 days before being able to really understand the effect. It is recommended to practice meditations and kriyas which are from a KRI-certified source. This website of Hari Nam Singh does not appear to be a KRI-certified source. You can search other reliable sources like this website ( such as or or

      • How important is it for the recording to have the four Hars? Theres quite a few recordings out there that doesn’t have that preceding each of the eight names. Thanks!

        • Pritpal Singh Khalsa says:

          This is very important. There are different versions of this mantra that Yogi Bhajan gave and it would not be acceptable to use one when another was specifically directed to be used. The version with 4 Hars is less common, with fewer recordings done. But that is the correct one to use – not the one with 3 Hars.
