We sat down with RA MA Institute teacher Harmanjot. Here’s what she had to say….
How did you discover Kundalini Yoga?
I was cast in a movie right out of college. I was having a terrible time. I wasn’t getting along with anyone in the cast. The director was…well that’s another story! I was so freaked out.
We were on location so I was sharing a hotel room with another actress. She thought Kundalini yoga could help me manage the roughness of the shoot. She was right.
40 days after that I moved to Los Angeles and within another 6 weeks I met Guru Jagat. I quit the industry and started studying. I was always both very sensory and very philosophical, so Kundalini yoga fulfilled for me to need understand the world through both intuition and cognition. It took care of all the vanity needs of a former model/actress – but on the positive current: fitness without over working out; beauty from the inside out. The practice was supernatural and cool. But above all, I realized I could use Kundalini yoga to help people.
Dignity for all humans is my deepest prayer. I don’t think there’s a single family line that has gone unscathed in the last 5,000 years. So there’s a lot of work to do to remember that there is nothing more beautiful, more conscious than the human being. The time has come for self-value. That’s what I’m about.
What are some ways that you use the technology of Kundalini Yoga for success in your everyday life?
Kundalini is ultra useful in my family dynamics. I use the mantra Ang Sang Wahe Guru to keep us unified, yet individuated.
I am also very much into the practices that offer a creative-intelligence edge. There’s nothing more fulfilling that feeling oneself as an organic, living consciousness. In the future, when we are living in the throes of technology, a creative human experience will be more magical than ever.
What’s your go-to kriya or meditation to get out of a negative thought stream?
Inhale sat. Exhale Nam.
What do you recommend for people to stay grounded during these times on the planet?
Enjoy it. If you can’t beat it, and you can’t leave it, and you can’t change it (right away), enjoy it.
If your life were a playlist, what are 3 songs that are on it?
Dhan Dhan Ram Das Gur has REAL miracle power
Ik Ardas will give you destiny
Rakhe Rakhan Har will protect your lineage 7 generations front and back
What are 3 things you do to keep a healthy glow?
Oh the basics, drink water, practice sarbang dandes. I love pranayam breathing exercises. They really give you that mega watt radiance.
What’s one thing you hope someone experiences in your classes?
I hope someone who comes to my class gets the energy they need to achieve what they came to the planet to do. And that includes having a great life. At the very very very minimum, we all came down here to have a happy, beautiful experience of what it means to be alive.
