The Winter Solstice is one of the most powerful days of the year, and this December 21st is an extraordinary, historic day. It marks the end of a 26,000 year evolutionary cycle and the beginning of a completely new era for all humankind. We are in a very important moment in history for we are about to witness the birth of a new Age. Therefore, it is vital for us to come together as we are, at the Naam Yoga LA center and across the world via a live global webcast, to vibrate the holy Naam and use the miraculous power inside ourselves to tap into the beneficial Light being radiated by the Heavens toward the Earth, so that we may help to bring about the positive changes that are required to set in motion the transformations and transitions that will lead this Earth back to the Light. We invite you to join us in this unique time and space, for when thousands of people come together to vibrate the holy Naam, with the positive power of their minds and hearts, they gain the power to tip the scales within this Universe and transform the darkness into Light.
Scientific studies from institutions and universities across the globe have shown that when the square root of 1% of that population aligns their consciousness in meditation toward peace and harmony, the result is observed in the remaining population. This means that as there are currently about 7 billion people in the world, the square root of 1% of the world population is 8,367 people. That’s it. That is the number of people needed to bring about an immediate, positive ripple effect that will uplift the whole world. By positively changing the thought patterns of the collective consciousness of humanity we open the door that leads to salvation and transformation, and spread the Light of true freedom far and wide. This World Peace Prayer and Meditation Marathon during the Winter Solstice Celebration is designed to work with the forces of the Cosmos so as to revitalize our entire Being. Accelerating and aligning the meridians and spiritual centers, it brings a new level of heightened awareness to all those involved. Let us work with the infinite power of prayer at this historic time in order to fill each cell of your being with the soothing and healing vibrations of this Winter Solstice, so that you may be attuned to the heavens, and attract as many blessings as you need, as you breathe in the new Light that is being showered upon the Earth during this pivotal time.
This is the dawn of a New Age, a time prophesied by the ancient traditions as the moment when the Great Laws of Love, Wisdom, and Truth will descend from the world of Eternal Light to illuminate the minds, regenerate the hearts, and renew the souls of all men and women. Global enlightenment and personal resurrection will follow. The world will reach the platform for its primordial state of spirituality, and the opening of the portal of the New Age will cause us to realize that we each are a spark of the Divine, born from the mind of God; that we each carry inside ourselves a piece of that same creative power that formed the very world and universe in which we live, and that created the very miracles that allow life to be. Therefore, we must stay positive in our mind and in our heart, and know that by coming together on this very powerful Winter Solstice and vibrating the holy Naam we will indeed contribute to the creation of a mighty pillar of Light that will create the foundation for a world of harmony, love and beauty.
On December 21st, 2012, the last Winter Solstice of this era, the veil will be lifted between Man and the Tree of Life, and the platform for unification, from which we are able to recognize the connection between the macrocosmic consciousness of the Source and the microcosmic consciousness of humankind, will be created. The portal of expansion and co-creation with the Divine will shower the Earth with an abundance of Light and allow us to acknowledge our power so that we may recognize our Divinity. The time has come for us to have a relationship with our Spirit, so that we may realize that we have the power to change the world, and no matter who we are, where we are or what we have, we can make a difference, we have the power to banish all darkness and turn this world into a beautiful place of Love, of Peace and of Light.
Spiritual Practice for Winter Solstice 2012
Specific Meditation Series for December 21st, 2012 and Beyond
These mantras will take care of you. They will help you transition gracefully to the vibration of this new Age. They will clear away astral debris and all unwanted influences from your life. Your tolerance and devotion will also be enhanced. We invite you to practice this complete set in a group or by yourself on December 21st, otherwise be sure to do at least the meditations marked with an (*). Thereafter, you may choose to incorporate the following meditations into your personal practice.
Part I - Tuning In: Gurur Brahma (*)
To prepare, put your hands in prayer pose at the heart center to create neutrality in the magnetic field. Close your eyes and begin breathing deeply. With each inhale welcome the breath, and with each exhale send all sickness out of the body. The longer and deeper you breathe, the more you will start to feel lighter, brighter and more beautiful. Slow and deep breathing automatically controls the mind and causes the motor system in the brain to readjust the function of the entire body so that it is under your physical control. Once things come under your physical control, your positive, hidden subconscious desires, such as being healthy, strong and prosperous, are given a chance to manifest. As your heartfelt prayers begin to project out of you, the body creates the environment needed to crystallize them. When you feel ready, tune in with one complete recitation of Gurur Brahma:
To end, inhale very deeply and exhale. Inhale deeply, expand your shoulders as well as your chest and exhale. Inhale very deeply, expand your body, exhale and relax. Now you are ready to begin. Suggested Music: Primal Vibrations CD 1, Track 3
Comments: Gurur Brahma is a Sanskrit prayer that connects you to the Light of all the teachers on the astral and divine planes, up to the ultimate Teacher. It originates from the Guru Gita, which is a part of a larger Sanskrit text called the Skanda Purana, compiled between the 6th and 15th centuries.
Note: For Parts II through VI move swiftly from one meditation to the next to create a continuous Naam Chain of Light.

Comments: The Bij or seed mantra RAM is essential now, more than ever, for we must be careful not to fall into negative patterns of thought and/or behavior. These negative patterns that stem from the seven karmic influences and are inscribed in the deep recesses of our subconscious mind are repeated in our destructive habits. From December 21st, 2012 on, RAM must become your foundation, for it will remove the negativity you attract via the seven karmic influences, and guide you toward positivity and peace. RAM stands for our Soul, or our consciousness, and is symbolic of the inner fire that, when activated, burns away all physical, mental and spiritual impurities. By vibrating RAM, you are creating the proper conditions for the descent of the Spirit of God within you. It will open your Soul to Divine Power so that you have the strength to overcome any challenge.
RAM is the Bij mantra of RAMA, which represents the joy that comes from Divine Love. Present in all of us, the seed of RAM lies dormant for many lifetimes, only coming alive when we vibrate it, and allows the soul to introduce us to our Higher Self, creating enhanced self-awareness. RAM destroys the karmic walls that have long kept you separated from God, thereby becoming a guardian angel that brings rhythm, harmony and equilibrium to your body and mind, and serenity and joy to your life. RAM will help you build up a strong, magnetic quality, with its accompanying vital aura. It attracts the creativity and blessings of the magnetic field of the entire Universe, thereby protecting our magnetic field and bringing our original self out from the shadows.
RAM is as practical as it is powerful. RAM activates the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system causing the Vagus Nerve to vibrate harmoniously thereby taking care of our heart. It balances both sides of the brain, so that the restless mind can become still and peaceful. RAM recharges the body and cleans impurities, while enhancing your mastery of mind, senses and emotions. It induces sound sleep in the seeker by helping to alleviate insomnia. It integrates the personality so that your behavior is positive. In turn, you become sincere, honest and straightforward in word, thought and deed.
Part VI: Hari Om & Rama Rama Rama Rama Rama Rama Rama Ram for Purity
Close your eyes and focus on the mid-brow point. Bring the hands in Gyan mudra, thumb touching the index finger of each hand. Bend the arms so that the arms rest comfortably at your sides and the hands hands are at shoulder level. The palms are facing in front of you. Begin reaching toward the sky with each hand, still in Gyan mudra, alternating raising the left hand and then the right in a smooth continuous motion with each repetition of Hari Om. When the mantra switches to Rama Ram bring both hands to the starting position, palms facing in front of you in Gyan mudra at the level of the shoulders. Continue for 7 minutes. To end, inhale deeply, suspend the breath and tighten the body. Exhale powerfully. Inhale again and expand your shoulders as well as your chest, hold the breath and exhale. Inhale very deeply as you raise your arms above your head and suspend the breath. Exhale and shake out your hands.

The combination of these two Names of God, deals with the personal and impersonal aspects of the Divine. Hari is a personal aspect, whereas Om is the impersonal.
