This is a bij (seed) mantra meditation. Bij mantras such as Sat Naam are sounds which can totally rearrange the habit patterns. We all have habit patterns—we could not function without them. But sometimes the patterns we have created are not wanted. You have changed, so you want the patterns to change. By vibrating the sound current Sat Naam in this manner, you activate the energy of the mind that erases and establishes habits.
This meditation is good as an introduction to Kundalini Yoga. It will open the mind to new experience. A long-time student will still meditate in this way, particularly to clear off the effects of a hurried day before beginning another deep meditation. After chanting this mantra, you will feel calm, relaxed, and mellow.
