This is a day to celebrate hope, renewal and, most of all, heart – compassion, love, and the awakening of deep innocence. This was the legacy of Guru Ram Das. This is the day, Oct 6th that we celebrate Guru Ram Das’s birthday, which was really his birth for merging with the Divine.
Such an interesting day for me for it is also the day my Beloved Teacher, Yogi Bhajan, left his body. Triple 6, my precious daughter, also left her body on the 6th December. 6th, my son was born on April 6th. The 6th of June is when Indira Gandhi took her tanks and troops into the Golden Temple, where you don’t even wear shoes, and created mass killings which cost her her life. So we always have a Gurudwara (Sikh Temple) service on that day, every 6th of each month.
It is a power date to remember all who have aligned with that date. We knew our Teacher, Yogi Bhajan, waited until that date to leave. Where my daughter was concerned, the date was the farthest thing from our minds as we were in this timeless, spaceless zone of just being with her, but she chose to leave on the 6th, and, by doing so, let me know that she would always have a temple service to honor her being.
So, on this day, please allow the grace and heartfelt service of Guru Ram Das, the Guru of the Heart, the 4th Guru to serve you. He was known as the Guru who was a Guru by day and who, by night, went out into the streets dressed as a beggar to help take care of the poor, the sick and the homeless. His temple, the Priceless Golden Temple, is the temple many come to India not only to see but, most of all, to be in the vibration with. You can’t imagine what the water in the Temple is like. Picture this water that surrounds this temple that has 22 hrs of chanting each day. Immerse yourself for a moment in that vibrational bath. Someday, we will go there together so you can have that transformational experience in body as well as spirit. It’s called, “take and sip and dip in the water,” but what it really is, is becoming at one with the frequency of this water, this Naad, and there is nothing more to do.
This temple, the Golden Temple was built to heal not for any particular event or death or birth or… wedding or anything, it was built just to heal. So this day is your chance to heal.
Do this meditation today to claim and radiate healing:
- Sit in easy sitting pose for you. Close your eyes bring your hands palms up fingers together like little begging bowls, receptive. Bring your elbows into your side.
- Chant RA MA DA SA SAY SO HUNG. There are many versions to chant this with. Go to iTunes or Spirit Voyage and claim one that vibrates for you.
Happy Blessed Guru Ram Das’ Birthday and all those who serve that healing on the planet.
Wahe Guru love and blessings showering upon you,
