Sirgun Kaur is an Arizona-based sacred songstress, avid blogger, Kundalini Yoga instructor, and mother of two. Sirgun has released five albums of sacred chants: -8, Reclaim Your Happiness, Dayaal, The Cosmic Gift, and The Music Within. Sirgun's first two albums were funded entirely through the generous support of her global fanbase, for which she is infinitely appreciative.
There has never been any question in Sirgun Kaur's mind what she should do "when she grew up." From collecting nursery rhymes as an infant, to sharing her adolescent woes with a sympathetic piano, or touring the United States as a singer-songwriter in her early 20s, music has always been an anchor in Sirgun's life. It was not until she discovered Kundalini Yoga, chanting, and mantra, however, that she understood the transformative and healing potential of music. Since then, Sirgun has released five albums of sacred chants: -8, Reclaim Your Happiness, Dayaal, The Cosmic Gift, and The Music Within. Sirgun's first two albums were funded entirely through the generous support of her global fanbase, for which she is infinitely grateful. She lives in Phoenix, AZ, with her husband and two sons.
The human voice is the most portable, most readily available musical instrument.
Everything is vibration. So, when we sing in a devotional way (chant), we tune our body instrument to the frequency of our Highest Potential. We find the acceptance, the beauty, the joy, and the validation within our own Self.
I know how these sacred mantras can lift us beyond our limited reality, into a blissful and ecstatic space, and I love to share that experience with others.
Chanting and happiness
Happiness is the evidence of our spiritual connection. The feeling of HAPPY tells us we are moving in the direction of our ever-expanding Source. It feels GOOD to be tuned to the frequency of our vision, our mission, our purpose. That is all happiness is. It is simple to achieve because it is our natural state. So long as we aren’t preventing our self from feeling our innate happiness, HAPPY is the default setting. Any way that we can raise our vibration is in itself a CHANTING experience because we are vibrating the cells of our body to the frequency of our Source. “Chanting the NAAM” is exactly that. It is vibrating at the highest frequency we can reach for. NAAM is who we really are, and NAAM sets the frequency to which we will experience happiness when we tune to it. There are many ways of “chanting”, but a very effective way is through the voice because it resonates the entire body with harmonizing and aligning sound.
happiness has a momentum
Momentum is harnessing the energy that creates and maintains the Cosmos. We all have momentum that drives our moments, but much of our momentum isn’t working for us. Limiting beliefs that we have collected a lot of evidence to support, create strong momentum that seems difficult to shift. When we have a practice that aligns the ME and the me, we see new momentum begin to create itself automatically. But we must also recognize that every moment is an opportunity for “practice,” and that our mental focus can maintain or undermine our pursuits. When we gather new evidence that supports a momentum in harmony with our Vision (hint: it will FEEL really good!), the law of attraction brings us more and more such evidence, creating stronger and stronger momentum in the “right” direction.
This is what I believe Yogi Bhajan meant when he said “keep up and you’ll be kept up.” When you choose a focus in any moment that keeps you elevated and happy, the Cosmos holds you there... KEEPS you up. The only thing you need to do is focus on the being UP part, which requires an alignment in yourself, which is the purpose of spiritual practice.
