From the recording Ananda Yogiji and Jaya Lakshmi: Live at the Altar of Love~Disc 2
You're the Creator.
You're the Sustainer.
You're the Destroyer of all.
You're my lover.
You're my partner.
You're my teacher of all.
I bow to you.
You are the earth from which all things grow.
You are the water, the eternal flow.
You are the fire that glows on and on.
You are the air I breath in for this song.
You are the sweetness that embraces me.
You are the all pervading truth and beauty.
You are the infinite love, bestower of grace.
You are the compassion, the healing
Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo
Ong Namo -I bow to the subtle divine wisdom
Guru Dev Namo - I bow to the divine teacher within.
Yogi Bhajan taught this is ancient yogic mantra as a tool to relate instantly to the divine teacher within. Adi means primal or first. In Kundalini yoga, this is the first mantra that should be used for any yogic or meditative practice. It is used to tune in before Kundalini Yoga classes, to center us in the higher self, and to spiritually guide both the teacher and the students during the class.
