Alakh Babay Siri Chand Dirakh
Baba Siri Chand was the eldest son of Guru Naanak, the first Sikh Guru. Rather than being chosen to follow in his father's footsteps as the next Guru, he was given the leadership of the Udasi Sikhs, which is a group who practice a yogic way of life and do not follow all of the hukams (commands) which were eventually laid out by Guru Gobind Singh, who was the last of the living Gurus. Baba Siri Chand apparently mastered yoga as he was said to have maintained the physique of a young boy throughout his lifetime. He had long, flowing hair and is depicted with blue skin in paintings. Emperors were said to have come to consult his wisdom. At approximately 160 years of age he wandered off and is said to be sitting in meditation somewhere in the mountains to this day.
His power can be invoked by speaking the words, Alakh Baby Siri Chand Dirakh, which translates as, "the powers of Baba Siri Chand are limitless." Speak this mantra once a day to support your normal psychic boundaries. When under psychic attack, it is appropriate to chant the mantra for three minutes while using a combing motion with your hands, as if running them through your hair (imagine you have long flowing hair like Baba Siri Chand).
There are differing opinions as to the intent to hold when chanting this mantra. Yogi Bhajan said chanting Alakh Babay Siri Chand Dirakh would reflect the negative energy back to it's source. I choose to use the mantra to transmute negative psychic energy into white light. Sending the energy back to its source involves me in the negative karma of its owner. Transmuting the energy raises the vibration of the Universe by choosing the Path of Peace.
Kriya Gong Yoga and Gong Bath
Kriya Gong Yoga is based on brief kriyas which target specific muscles that are linked to physical and emotional issues. Practitioners can create individualized kriyas to work on whatever is present in the moment.
The sound of the gong distracts the human ego, making space for deeper, transpersonal reflection and can be considered a transpersonal practice. Gong Bath or Gong Meditation is an opportunity to take a break from the chaos around you and experience deep relaxation and healing
Starting in July, 2017!

Karambir Singh Khalsa, M.A. is designing clinical research to study the effects of gong bath on human consciousness. He has spoken at the 1st International Conference on the Humanities and Transpersonal Psychology as well as the 2nd Conference on Spirituality and Psychology.
Sound healing has been clinically proven to provide physiological and psychological benefits to human consciousness. Among the effects are increased Alpha- and Theta-wave activity in the brain, reduced cortisol and norepenephrine, and activation of the the Hippothalmus-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis which influences the delicate balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
Research is lacking as to the effects of gong bath on human consciousness. Karambir will be designing and conducting clinical research in this are as part of his upcoming doctoral studies in Clinical Psychology at Sofia University beginning in Fall 2017.
