Chanting Akal for a Falling Star

“The chanting of Akaal creates a vibratory frequency that assists the departing soul on its journey through the ethers to final liberation.” -Shakti Parwha Kaur

Yogi Bhajan asked the students at one of his classes to chant Akaal for someone who had passed. Here are his words:

“You have chanted Akaal which you chant three times with the breath of life for the soul. It gives absolute freedom, eternal peace, and eternal rest.

Akal Chanting

Shine like the Morning star, dear one. We will meet again.

Akaaaaaaaaaaaaal.  Akaaaaaaaaaaaaal. Akaaaaaaaaaaaaal.

Meditation: Sending the Soul to God 

Mantra: Akal


Sit in easy pose, with a straight spine, and slightly tuck the chin in. With the elbows straight bring the hands into Gyan Mudra. Gyan Mudra is where the Jupiter finger touches the thumb and the elbows are straight as seen in the picture, with the hands resting on the knees.

Teacher’s Notes & More Information:

Yogi Bhajan taught that a soul stays in the Earth’s vibration for 17 days after leaving its body. Chanting Akal daily for those 17 days is very helpful for them. It is a very powerful chant when done with a group, especially if that group is focusing its group energy on a single soul.

For your own practice, you would ideally chant twice per day for the first 3 days, 2 ½ hours before sun rises and sets. Then continue on once daily for the reamining 14 days.
