Ra Ma Da Sa, Sa Say So Hung
The mantra for sacred healing
This healing meditation can be used for healing on ourselves, others or the world and is particularly effective in long distance healing. Those who practice this meditation participate in anchoring the healing vibration on the planet.
Mantra is a Sanskrit word that means “Transforms the Mind”. This mantra is comprised of 8 “seed” sounds. They are not words by themselves and although we’ll outline the translated general meaning below, it is the sounds themselves that are powerfully transformative, not their meanings.
This mantra consists of 8 basic sounds:
Ra Ma Da Sa,
Sa Say So Hung
Listen to my favorite rendition by Snatam (pronounced Sn-autumn) Kaur here:
Ra is the energy of the Sun: strong, bright and hot. It energizes and purifies.
Ma is the energy of the moon: receptive, cool, and nurturing.
Da is the energy of Earth: secure and personal. It is the ground of action.
Sa is the impersonal Infinity. The cosmos in all of its dimensions, openness, expansiveness and totality is Sa.
Sa is the impersonal Infinity.
Say is the totality of experience and is personal. It is the feeling of a sacred "Thou." It is the embodiment of Sa.
So is the personal sense of merger and identity.
Hung is the Infinite, vibrating and real. The two qualities together (So and Hung) mean: "I am Thou."
Set your intentions and ask for healing for yourself, others you wish to include, the Earth and humanity. Then release these prayers to the Universe. During the meditation concentrate only on doing it, the mantra and the effects you are experiencing. Get into the sensory experience and awareness. The more you are present to your experience, the more effective you are in creating a sacred healing space. You will use the space that you have created at the end to share healing energy.
Mudra means “seal,” “gesture,” or “mark.” Yoga mudras are symbolic gestures often practiced with the hands and fingers. They facilitate the flow of energy in the subtle body and enhance one’s journey within.
Sit in Easy Pose (or full lotus) with your upper arms resting against your ribs, slightly in from the sides. The elbows are bent, and your forearms positioned upward and slightly angled out from the upper arms. Your palms are flat, facing upward and pointed out from your body at a 45-degree angle. (to form a 45% angle point the hands are over the legs toward the knees.)
The fingers are together with the thumbs stretched out towards the side away from the fingers.
It is very important to stretch the thumb away from the fingers. The stretch in the webbing keeps the hands flat and helps maintain a stretch at the wrist. You can use one hand to push down the other hand in order to get a feel of the correct stretch in the wrist. It is this stretch that helps balance the brain. When the thumb is not stretched, the wrist relaxes, the hands move upward and the mudra and its effects are compromised. When the mudra is accurately done, you will feel energy or a pull in the center of the palms. This creates the power to heal with your hands.
This mantra taps into the energies of the sun, moon, earth, and the Infinite Spirit to bring deep healing. It is important to pull the navel point powerfully on Hung. Note that the word Hung is not long and drawn out. Rather, it is clipped off forcefully as you pull in the navel. Chant one complete cycle of the entire mantra with each breath. Then deeply inhale and repeat. Remember to move the mouth precisely with each sound. Try to feel the resonance in the mouth and in the sinus area.
Time: Best if repeated for 11 to 31 minutes.
Effects and Powers
This meditation gives one the power to heal long distance and to heal with the hands.
Now is the time to use the healing space that you have created. Inhale deeply and hold the breath. While the breath is held, concentrate on yourself and feel the sensations in your body. Feel or allow the vibration of the mantra to penetrate every cell of your body. Feel the mantra continue to resonate in your body. Become the healing vibration. Allow yourself to be healed and uplifted.
Repeat the above process 3 or more times with the following variations:
Inhale deeply and hold the breath. Feel the healing love pulse in your heart. Invite in friends, members of your family and situations and allow them to be bathed in the healing vibration. Hold them in your body, in your heart and in the healing vibration that you now resonate with and embody.
Inhale deeply and hold the breath again. Feel that your heart is so big and the love so infinite that you can hold the whole earth in your heart. Let the earth pulse with the mantra and be healed with this love.
Inhale deeply and hold the breath for a last time. Invite any elevated being such as the Dalai Lama, Christ, Krishna, Mother Mary, or Infinite Spirit, God, ect into your heart. Be very attentive and feel deeply.
To complete, inhale deeply, stretch your arms up high, and vigorously shake out your hands and fingers for several seconds. Exhale and relax.
