Power of the Master’s Touch Meditation
This mantra will give you the power of the Master’s Touch: Aad Such, Jugaad Such, Hai Bhee Such, Naanak Hosee Bhee Such.
These are the words of Guru Nanak. They are the permutation and combination and projection and power to bring the entire Purkirti, the existence, into the being of the Purkha.
These are the four stages of truth, which must prevail through one touch. That is the definition.
The Gift of the Master’s Touch
Guru Ram Das Center volunteer and fund raiser, Hari Charn Kaur, wrote this message along with executive director Shanti Shanti Kaur. They have been practicing the meditation together and want to share their experience.
“Since the first day we started our personal practice, we have taught this meditation wherever we travel, all around the world. People brand new to meditation, people who have never meditated before, people who had never practiced a meditation for 2 1/2 hours in one sitting, have experienced the Meditation to Invoke the Master’s Touch. We have started Master’s Touch meditation groups in cities throughout the world, and are inspired by the people who keep them going.”
Message from Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga
“The Master’s Touch is like a Philosopher’s Stone, any matter which touches that stone becomes gold. In the Age of Aquarius, the message is, ‘Take me where I can get experience’, that is the difference. Experience means work, experience is not talking, it is practice. I am grateful to that man of God who touched me and put me through it,” Yogi Bhajan said before he instructed the meditation. He titled it “The Meditation To Invoke The Master’s Touch.”
We are not practicing the meditation for what it promises for the future. We are practicing it for what it delivers now. We’ve come to realize this meditation has been given as a gift from the Master, and we want to share it with you.
We invite you to do something perhaps you think you cannot do. We invite you to practice the following meditation for 2 1/2 hours every day, for 40 days. Perhaps 90, 120, 1,000 or more. You decide. Let us know what your experience is.
Meditation to Invoke the Master’s Touch
From a lecture given by Yogi Bhajan on July 13, 2000, and further communication with him regarding specifics of practice
Practice of this meditation develops the sensory system and links the subtle body of the student to the subtle body of the Master. It is a meditation of subtlety. As long as the subtle body is not invoked, happiness cannot be permanent. This meditation works on the seven chakras, the shashara, pituitary, hypothalamus and thalamus. It raises vitality and increases mental clarity. You can warm up before practice of this meditation with breath of fire, and a few minutes of Sat Kriya.
Posture: Sit in Easy Pose, with a light jalandhar bandh. Feel like you are the greatest incarnation of Lord Buddha. Feel saintly, concentrate.
Mudra: Place the pad of the right index finger (Jupiter finger) on the pad of the left index finger, so that the finger prints are touching–not pressing–forming an approximately 45 degree angle with the index fingers pointing upwards. Right palm faces out from the body, the left palm faces towards the body. Other fingers are curled into the palms, with the thumb over. Hold the mudra lightly at the heart center, elbows resting along your ribcage with shoulders relaxed. This is Maha Gyan Mudra.
Eye Focus: The eyes are slightly open, focused at the tip of your nose.
Mantra: The mantra for this meditation is Aad Such, Jugaad Such, Hai Bhee Such, Naanak Hosee Bhee Such. This means, True in the primal beginning; True through all the ages; True here and now; O Nanak, forever and ever True.
Chant or sing the mantra aloud, in a monotone.
The “Such” sound is made with the tongue touching the upper palate and then coming down. The ch in Such is emphasized, but not extended, as if saying, Suchch. Pull the navel point in on each Such. Chanting in monotone affects the lungs.
As you chant aloud, listen to the mantra with your inner ear. Let the inner ear vibrate.
Breath Rhythm: The breath rhythm is a simple, long deep breath for each round of the mantra. Not too long or too short.
Timing: The Meditation to Invoke the Master’s Touch is recorded in the scriptures to be practiced for 2 1/2 hours in one sitting. Do less if you can’t go the full time. This is a personal sadhana and does not replace group sadhana in the Amrit Vela.
Ending the Meditation: To end, inhale, hold, exhale and relax the mudra and relax your breath. Close your eyes and rest for two minutes.
