Mul (or Mool) refers to the root, as in mulaband (root lock), or muladhara (root chakra). Our root center informs our sense of security. Often when we think security, we think job, money, roof over our heads, and food on the table. There's that. There's also the sense of security in belonging. In our longing to belong, we seek external approval and make decisions based on our need to be a part of a group. When this seems out of reach, we become vulnerable to addictions.
This mantra forges your connection with the Universe, the life force, the Earth, nature, the Creator. And in fact, you begin to realize that you are that. You always have been, and you always will. You can’t not belong.
Once you’ve embraced this at the cellular level (mantra affects you at that level), everything outside of you falls into place… and what doesn't belong - meaning what's misaligned - falls away, making you lighter and freer, giving you greater capacity and energy to move forward in your authentic self. When you have you, you have everything.
Here's the mantra:
Ek Ong Kar
Aad Such Jugaad Such
Nanak Hosee Bhee Such
Chant this to music (search Mool or Mul Mantra), or recite it 11 times a day. Watch the video to hear how one round of the Mul Mantra sounds.
