    I was talking to my friend at work who fancies herself your garden-variety neo-Pagan. Talking about our spiritual practices I mentioned Naam simran as a process of chanting "Waheguru". We've also spoken about head-covering in different religions too.

    She said that when it comes to chants like "Om" one needs to "cleanse their chakras" and stuff first to make sure that as you raise your own energy level you don't bring any garbage with you. She assumes the same would hold true for Simran and cautioned me against the practice without tending to my chakras first.

    She also said something about covering ones head being related to protecting the crown chakra when dealing with divine energy and stuff.

    Um... what's the sangat's opinin of all this? What is the general Sikh view of chakras and energy and all that seemingly "new age" jazz?

    Thank you.

    Term Dasham Dwar/Penail Gland/Sahstaerdal Kamal is used in Gurbani so is Hirday Kamal.Chakrar are some glands for intemediatory stages and are more to doi with physical boidy but Turya Pad is still higher.(read book Wahiguru Naam Abhyas by Jathedar Patna Sahib).

    Dear Ishna ,

    Chakras / Energy Centres are related to Yoga . And among various types of Yoga Kundlani Yoga is considered Supreme due to very Practicle and Quick results even for Householder ( in Family ) Yogi.

    Yoga helps prepare your body and make it more enduring and strong to do mediatation .It sis more sort of start with body but ultimately leads to divine with Prper Guidance as believed by practicing Yogis

    One of the greatest Yogi of our times Happen to be Great Sikh Personality Yogi Bhajan /Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh JI Yogi and he introduced and blessed thousands with Sikhi and Yoga way of life in the west ( America / Europe)

    So if any body who is interested in Yoga in Sikh way of Living then I think it is the best guide .

    For information about Yogi Bhajan JI and the organisation 3HO :

    Thanks

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
