When the mind is agitated with worry, sorrow or frustration the best medicine is to meditate. Listening to chanting or the meditations like the ones below can relieve distress. If you listen to these with some concentration your mind will cease its obsessing and your heart will feel the happiness of your own Self.
Om tryambakaṃ yajāmahe sugandhiṃ puṣṭivardhanam
urvārukamiva bandhanān mṛtyor mukṣīya maamṛtāt
This is a powerful healing and calming mantra. Instead of worrying, meditate or listen to mantras. One meaning is ‘we revere the one, Lord Shiva, who gives his complete fullness ti all and can restore us to good health’.

Recorded in Ann Arbor in 1975 or 76 this was one of the first recordings made of kirtan, chanting in Siddha Yoga.
Om Guru Om Guru
Om guru Om guru Om gurudev
Jaya guru jaya guru jaya gurudev
Recorded in the ashram a few years ago this is one of the most beautiful chants.
Looking for the Upward Shift
There is peace, energy and love within you. Try to find it by listening to this meditation.
You can always have the meditation you are having
A lot of people think they cannot meditate. Everyone can meditate. The key is to be with whatever experience you are having and learn to accept it and sit with it. This is the first step to learning to know and love yourself.

Love the Ann Arbor chanting. I’d love to hear other chants from that time.
Dear Devi Ma
Thank you for your beautiful and beautifully written stories. As I read them I am transported in time and can feel the Shakti you speak of and am moved to tears…I may or may not get to India, but your stories as well as Swamiji’s have given me a glimpse of what that may feel and look like.
All my Love and Gratitude
It would be wonderful to see you there. We will say a prayer for you on Thursday evening. xo
