“If you have put God outside of you, [then] there’s nothing in you.And that’s why you’re suffering.”
The quote above was given to us by Yogi Bhajan, one of the yogic masters who taught us that we ourselves are God (or Source, or the Divine, or your personal preference for this concept).
Yogiji, as he was called endearingly, acknowledged that we often feel empty inside, no matter what our outside lives look like. He knew, as we do, that it was possible to have money, friends, a career, a beautiful home, a life partner, and more, and yet to feel that something was fundamentally missing from our life. That which is missing is very often our own Self.
The emptiness that we feel inside, may never be filled by anything that is outside.
It must be filled from the source of that emptiness; the recognition of our inner self, our higher self, our divine self. Our union with the all that is.
Therefore, to fill this void inside, Yogi Bhajan helped us to connect with that greater part of Creation from which we come. We can do this easily, and then ask it to fill our cells, our Selves, and our lives. One way to do this is with the mantra that he shared from the Kundalini Yoga tradition, “Ang Sang Wahe Guru” (pronounced “ung sung wah-hay goo-roo”).
Traditional mantras are effective because of the vibration that they produce, not because of the literal translation. The effect of this mantra means, essentially, “all of my cells vibrate with the ecstasy of the universe.”
To recite or meditate with this mantra can bring feelings of bliss, ecstasy, love, and remembrance of how Great we really are.
It brings us closer to the All. It reminds us where we come from. It fills that inner void.
One version of this mantra can be heard here.
May all of your cells now vibrate with the ecstasy of the universe.
