Each and every kundalini yoga practice begins with the Adi Mantra. We bow to the subtle divine wisdom, the divine teacher within. An ancient yogic mantra which allows the chanter to relate instantly to the divine teacher within.
Adi means primal or first, and mantra means the creative mental projection using sound. The Adi Mantra centers us in the higher self, and spiritually guides both the teacher and the students during the class.
The words to the mantra are “Ong namo Gurudev namo.”
