Musings Meditation, the Japji Sahib and Sikhism

An Early Meditation and the Japji Sahib leads to a Renewed Interest in Sikhism and Kundalini Yoga
The Meditation

Over the last few days I have changed up my morning routine. On the days that I am not working at Target, I have started my morning with a twenty-minute meditation. Typically, my meditation comes after my yoga. Both times I have done this my meditation has been very very good. I think I will keep it that way at least for a while. I also think the music I used for the soundtrack.had a hand in making the meditation better. Both days the soundtrack was from the album Alive in the Vortex by Steve Roach.  Steve Roach is one of those musicians whose name I know but whose music I never listen to much. I think I’ll have to change that, and check out some more of his stuff. read more
