Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo- Das Adi-Mantra zur Einstimmung
Es kann vor einer Meditation oder Yoga-Praxis angewendet werden, da es eine Art Schutzkreis erzeugen soll. Dieses Mantra verfeinert die Energie um und in uns. Es dient dazu, den Fluss der individueller Energie mit der universeller Energie einzustimmen und verbindet uns mit der höchsten Quelle der Weisheit.
„Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo“
Bedeutung: Ich verbinde mich mit der kosmischen Energie und dem erhabenen Weg, der mich vom Dunkel zum Licht führt.
Mit diesen Worten verbeuge ich mich vor meinem höheren Selbst, meinem eigenem Guru, der Weisheit, die mir innewohnt, sowie auch allen anderen unsichtbaren Kräften, die durch ihr Wirken zu meinem Wachstum beitragen.
"Ong" is the creative energy of the total cosmos and consciousness of the Creator as experienced in this Creation. It has the connotation of energy and activity. It creates involvement without attachment. It generates shakti, the generative force of life. Note that the sound is not "Om." That sound is for withdrawal and relaxation.
"Namo" means to bow to or to call on. The connotation is one of respect and receptivity. It is the type of bowing that grants dignity through acknowledging a higher consciousness and discipline.
"Ong Namo" calls on your consciousness to become subtle and receptive to its own higher resources. It instructs the conscious and the subconscious to let go of the normal restrictions imposed by the limited ego.
"Guru" means wisdom or teacher. It does not mean a personality. Rather, it means the source of the knowledge; not just any knowledge, but the kind of knowledge that transforms you, that alleviates pain, and that increases your awareness. "Guru" in the spiritual context is the embodiment of the Infinite. The word can be broken into parts: "Gu" means darkness or ignorance; "Ru" means light or knowledge; "Gur" means a formula to systematically attain a goal; so a "Guru" is something which can give you a "Gur" to transform your "Gu" to "Ru"!
"Dev" means subtle, etheric, divine or belonging to the realms of God. It implies sophistication and wisdom.
"Guru Dev Namo" calls on the subtle wisdom that guides you in an impersonally personal manner. It is a wisdom that is stored and transmitted through the subtle and radiant bodies of the aura. It is the realm and guidance of Guru Ram Das.
If the limited individual ego in which we normally live is a small pond, then "Ong Namo" releases us into a vast and endless ocean. "Guru Dev Namo" gives us the experience of the wisest seaman and all of his charts to guide us to the many ports we are to serve and experience.
