- The Water Is Wide (04:33)
A variation on a traditional Scottish folk song.
- Namo Namo Namo Namo (08:02)
By taking even one step toward the Guru, with humility and devotion, the Guru takes a million steps toward you.
(Bhai Gurdaas Ji)
- Naaraa-in (08:40)
Naraa-in is one of the many different names for the Divine and relates to the quality of water. As a plant needs water for its flowers to blossom, in the same way chanting Naraa-in nurtures the Divine Identity within you so that your soul can bloom into its full beauty and grace. Narayan is the quality that allows life to become fresh, lush and green again. It is also part of the Peace Mantra.
- Har Har Naam Nidhaan Hai (07:20)
The name of the Lord, Har Har, is the greatest treasure. . . . Chanting the name of the Lord, all poverty and pain depart.
(Guru Ram Das ji)
- Moo Laalan Sio Preet Banee (06:52)
Builds unwavering devotion in relationships.
- Kusam Basant (04:40)
This shabad works on prosperity and the Positive Mind; great practice for the Spring.
- Kundalini Surjhee (04:41)
With this shabad, it has been said that one, in whose fortune it is not so written, even he can experience the Chardi Kala, the rising of the Kundalini. If you shall sing it, it shall penetrate through all the chakras, including the sahasrara, and resettle to immaculately purify that person no matter what their destiny is.
- Chattr Chakkr Vartee (11:29)
These final four lines of Jaap Sahib written by Guru Gobind Singh bring the universe inside and the inside outside. This mantra for the heart center, it gives direct energy to it. When you are sinking, if you know this mantra and can sing it, you can totally recuperate yourself.
(Yogi Bhajan, July 12, 2001)
- Jai Te Gang (10:28)
This is a Mangala Charan of Bhagvati, the Goddess of Power, which we normally associate with a sword. It can temper a person and give them courage, grit and self-esteem that nothing on the planet, no matter how negative, shall affect. This is the only shabad which is a complete mantra.
(Yogi Bhajan, October 1, 1989)
