In the early days of Kundalini Yoga practice, we were taught to chant the mantra Alak Baba Siri Chand de Rakh (only once per day) in times where we felt psychically attacked. We know to be careful about this. This mantra calls upon the assistance of Baba Siri Chand, who is known to have been the protector of the Sikhs and was one of the sons of Guru Nanak, the first Sikh Guru. Gurutej Singh, as an early student of Yogi Bhajan’s, has great knowledge of this chant. He and I will discuss his knowledge and experience of this practice as well as share about some different variations and uses of this mantra.
