A Mantra for Prosperity and New Opportunities:

Har Har Har Har Gobinday

If you read the papers or listen to the news, you’ll confirm that our economy has been in trouble.  Housing, banking, unemployment rates, and the value of the dollar seem to be plummeting.  Yet if you look around, there are plenty of people living in great abundance and thriving; regardless of what the papers have to say about the state of our world.

Most spiritual practices teach us that we have the power to create the life we truly desire.  We have the inner tools to create a new reality for ourselves, live in peace, and control our thoughts and actions.  One of the most ancient tools for creating the life you want is the mantra Har Har Har Har Gobinday.

In the Kundalini yoga tradition, Yogi Bhajan taught that this mantra creates wealth, new opportunities, and removes obstacles.  Kundalini practitioners consider these teachings actual technologies that affect our brain patterns.  By chanting the Har Har Har Har Gobinday mantra 4, 7 or 11 minutes a day, we stimulate the upper palate of the mouth; which in turn stimulates a host of meridian points.  These points affect our pituitary and hypothalamus glands releasing hormones that make us feel powerful, happy, fearless, and positive.  Sounds like a powerful cocktail to attract abundance if you ask me!

The mantra translates as:

Har – Infinite Divinity.
Gobinday- Sustainer.
Mukunday- Liberator.
Udaaray- Enlightener.
Apaaray- Infinite
Hariang- Destroyer
Kariang- Creator
Nirnaamay- Nameless
Akaamay- Desireless

For pronunciation click here: Har Har Har Har Gobinday These words were written by the 10th Sikh Guru, the Guru Gobind Singh.

“This mantra is to fix the mental to prosperity or power. It will produce
money, it will come. Opportunities will come. Richness will come…”
– Yogi Bhajan
“When you chant this mantra with the breath of life, it’s quick, it’s purposeful, and it brings in what you need to bring in…”
– Yogi Bhajan

Since Har literally means God, it has been said that Har symbolizes prosperity and creativity, all that “is”.

Once you chant the Har Har Har Har Gobinday mantra a few times, you’ll start to feel the power of it and may even be pleasantly surprised as it runs through your head spontaneously throughout your day.  When I’m in fear about money, I chant this mantra and quickly find peace in my heart.

  1. Hi, Tamara. This is a very interesting topic for me.

    Do you know if this theme of using Yoga for material wealth and power has a long history in India? Or was it a theme Yogi Bhajan adopted when he brought Yoga to America, to appeal to American mind?

    Love to hear from others on this, too.

  2. Tamara says:

    Thank you Bob. My understanding is this: Health, wealth, power, love, joy, peace, etc..are our natural states. Our ego/mind gets in the way and blocks this natural flow. Kundalini yoga removes the blocks, enabling our natural flow. There is a long history, and yes back to India, of Kundalini practitioners living in this flow. It was kept under tight wraps and only through Yogi Bhajan has been revealed to the masses 44 years ago.

  3. I'd like to know more about this. Any reading sources would be much appreciated.

    I see a lot of articles about how Yoga was strictly spiritual in India, and then was corrupted into a more materialistic practice when it got to the West. Human nature what it is, I've always wondered if there was a lesser know or deemphasized tradition of Yoga for wealth and prosperity in India.

    This is particularly interesting to me at the moment, because I'm reading a book about how ancient Yoga philosophy was a very strong influence on much of today's "New Age" religion and philosophy, some of which is all about acquiring wealth.

    Most people would consider that a corruption of Yoga philosophy. But not so much if there is a long tradition of Yoga for wealth, as described in your article above, in India.

    (The book I'm reading is American Veda: From Emerson and the Beatles to Yoga and Meditation How Indian Spirituality Changed the West)

    I agree Bob~fertile ground for discussion. Prosperity in all forms; health, wealth, love, etc…is our true nature. What I've learned of Kundalini yoga is that it removes our human/ego/mind blocks and restores us on our path of true nature.

  5. 'Most people would consider that a corruption of Yoga philosophy. But not so much if there is a long tradition of Yoga for wealth, as described in your article above, in India.'

    So India=not corrupt? A spiritual Eden until the Western snake crawled into it?

    That idea, so popular in the yoga/Buddhist/new age crowd, is pure Romanticism and, as such, ironically, very very Western–the idealizing of the other that's simply the other side of the coin of degrading the other, just as idealizing the past is the other side of the modern dismissing of the past.

    Why do we assume this narrative of original purity and later corruption? What if what we think of as the "corruptions" of the ancient yoga tradition actually came first, and the good stuff was added later?

    Thanks for this piece, and the subsequent conversation. Very meaningful topic in these times when folks are so distracted and troubled by financial snags. Does that distraction block our path? Or put us in a space where we can discover that we may have all we need?

    Dear Bob, YogaforCynics, et al:
    Like everything else, Yoga has always been a mixed bag from the beginning, and this is beautifully expressed in the idea of vidya (light) and avidya (dark) tantra, that there are forces in nature and life that draws us toward union (yoga) and also repels us from that same union. More specifically, avidya tantra (or black tantra) is known for its alchemical use of nature to control its powers and use those powers for personal gain. In the Atharva Veda (3000 BCE), for example, there are a lot of these types of avidya tantric passages and spells to acquire wealth or harm people.
    So, yes, Bob, these kinds on mantric incantations have been part of Vedic and Tantric traditions since the beginning and go back to shamanic times. Just go on any Hindu marriage or astrology website or some weird Tantric website and you will see a lot of these kinds of mantras for prosperity and for getting the right partner, etc.
    Within avidya or white Tantra, there is less emphasis on this and in the more esoteric practices these type of practices are not used at all as the idea is that as long as we are in a spiritual frame of mind we will get what we need. And we do! Even if what we get is less than we need, due to a catastrophy, or a recession!, we will still be fine as long as our spirit is balanced and harmonious and happy. That is, after all, the goal of yoga is it not–to be happy no matter the circumstances, that your spirit is prosperous even if you have little material wealth. The more we align with spirit without forgetting the body and life around us in general and see all as One, the more we will prosper and be balanced on all levels. I personally do not use these mantras myself as my practice involves surrender on all levels of being. And when that happens, which is not always, of course, but when it does, everything is is just perfect no matter the circumstances!
    And, yes, YogaforCynics, India was never pure, has been corrupt for a long time, but still has hope, just like good old US of A.

  8. Very interesting, Ramesh. I knew you'd have a lot of great insight into this.

    loved this Ramesh….all of it.

  10. Ramesh says:

    One more thing to add is that Hara, the mantra, signify that aspect of God that steals or unloads our mental baggage, so by repeating Hara, or in this case Har, our minds are becoming free of unwanted clutter and thus, as Tamara says, we prosper.

  11. Padma Kadag says:

    Ramesh….was Har also an old norse word for god?

  12. Padma Kadag says:

    Vajrayana Buddhism addresses wealth. Just as it addresses all aspects of attachment and desire. Wealth deities and wealth have mantra. Nothing is left out in Vajrayana. Wealthy and a diligent practitioner is wonderful. But the references may appear as abundance and are then offered completely for the enlighten ment of all. In an ordinary sense wealth for the practitioner can arise as positive circumstances so that one can practice without obstacle. Food and shelter. A teacher. Support for one's practice is also wealth not just the accumulation of money and wealth as we in the west will refer to it. Ultimate wealth is the enlightenment for all sentient beings.

  13. Tamara says:

    Please hit the link…Har is pronounced HUD as you draw in your belly.
