Sat Nam,

Yesterday I had a new experience - teaching at Santa Monica College. I was a guest teacher at Donna Quesada's Asian Philosophy class. I taught about Kundalini Yoga, Sikhism, and shared a little about my life's journey. And, we of course practiced Celestial Communication together!

The students were brave and jumped in with the new experience of Celestial Communication. So far in the semester, they have learned about Hinduism and Yoga. I filled them in on the practice of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, and Sikhism, which is usually excluded from Asian Philosophy and Religion survey courses. 

At right, we are doing a Celestial Communication to the Mool Mantra from Japji Sahib by Guru Nanak. We also Celestially Communicated to "I Am What I Am" by Aykanna, which I like to think of as a modern way of saying "Sat Nam". 

The students asked brilliant questions, and I only wish that we had another hour together to thoroughly discuss them further!

Many of the effects of mantra meditation, as explained in this post, also apply to Celestial Communication. There are aspects, such as the effect of correct pronunciation and the tongue hitting the roof of the mouth, which don't apply, but all of the other effects do! Plus, with Celestial Communication you get to harmonize the body, mind and spirit, and you literally embody the mantra. 



Many thanks to Donna for inviting me to share in her class, and for her enlightening article about mantra!

All blessings, Adarsh Kaur
