It is said in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib that when Narayan is chanted, death...

But can you be satisfied with expressions?...

Yogi Bhajan Teaches the Kal Akal Siri Kal Mantra

Recently, a question arose about the correct mantra to recite while carrying the Siri Guru Granth Sahib during Sukhasan at the end of our Gurdwara ceremonies.  For many years, the Espanola Gurdwara mostly chanted “Kal Akal Siri Akal Maha Akal Akal Moorat Waheguru”.  However, this mantra does not exist in any manuals or anywhere online.  Alternatively, the mantra “Kal Akal Siri Kal Maha Akal Akal Moorat (Waheguru)” is listed in the KRI Teacher Training manual and was recorded by Guru Shabad Singh at the Siri Singh Sahib’s request.  Additionally, Los Angeles Gurdwara kirtanis only play “Kal Akal Siri Kal...
