Mantras are an essential aspect of Kundalini Yoga practice, each geared towards targeting different chakras and energies.
The Ong So Hung mantra is used to access the energy center known as anahata in Sanskrit, or the heart center. This promotes positivity, warmth, and optimism within us with many benefits, including support during grief, boosting compassion for yourself and others.
This guide will explore these benefits of the Ong So Hung mantra, and the meaning of the sounds and vibrations themselves.
Ong So Hung Mantra Meaning
Put simply, Ong means “the creative consciousness of God”, and So Hung means “I am that”, so it literally translates from Sanskrit to “I am one with God, the creative consciousness”.
The creative consciousness is held within the heart chakra, and this mantra connects this chakra to the divine energy, opening it up to the universe and drawing in the infinite strength and power.
The vibrations of this mantra work to soothe and open a blocked or upset heart, making it an effective energy center mantra.
Ong So Hung Mantra Benefits
Sanskrit mantras hold significant power within all Kundalini students’ practice, but the Ong So Hung mantra is considered particularly effective in drawing on the relationship between our bodies and their energy.
This is useful in strengthening the bond between our body and the universe, facilitating the flow of energy between the two and regulating the shared vibrations.
By using this mantra, we are opening up the heart-center of the body and saying to the universe and its divinity “I accept you, please open my eyes and guide me”. It enables compassion on the deepest level, and deepens our experience, awakening the senses.
In doing so, the Ong So Hung mantra enables us to revel in our vulnerability, while strengthening our barriers against negativity. Other benefits that are noticeable when we spend time opening up the heart chakra include:
- Strength when working through grief or trauma
- A heightened intuition, and trust in your judgement
- Confidence in your own conviction and power of the heart
- A sense of compassion, trust, and love
- More vulnerability, but also greater strength and courage
- Reaching a higher level of consciousness, and deeper spirituality
It is an easy mantra to sing, as its rhythm is simple and repetitive, and the vibrations feel powerful through song. But it is also a very versatile mantra, and is effective when spoken in the mind during meditation, or even whispered rhythmically during movement meditation.
