Global Climate Strike Meditation: Guru's Shabad

September 20th, we are reaching out to you to join us in prayer for Mother Earth for 40 days.

Editor's Note:  3HO is a non-profit organization who provide services to spiritual aspirants of all kinds. Along with hosting Kundalini Yoga meditation events they often encourage the yoga community to participate in simultaneous spiritual practices. 
In light of the recent climate strike the newest call to meditate is on the pressing issue of climate change. What is noteable about this particular call to prayer is that it is simply the recitation of a shabd from Guru Amar Das ji. Truly Gurbani is the greatest power and we are happy to see people of all colors who will surely participate in reciting it. As we all should want to do. Below is the invitation from 3HO: 


As people of consciousness all over the earth begin to wake up to the climate emergency and demand change, and in honor of all the children of the earth who are asking the adults to join them in solidarity for the Climate Strike on September 20th, we are reaching out to you to join us in prayer for Mother Earth for 40 days.

The Prayer for Mother Earth

Let's pray for Mother Earth together. Guru Amar Das wrote this Shabad in India hundreds of years ago. We practice it today to bring healing to our Mother Earth. Prayer is powerful. Hold this prayer with us: "When the Earth calls out in distress, the One answers with ease and strength, and there is peace in the land." 

We will practice this Shabad 11 times a day for 40 days to help us as human beings break any negative habits that block us from the expansion of awareness regarding the climate crisis. 

Kalmal ho-ee maydnee ardaas karay liv laa-ay.
Sachai suni-aa kann day Dheerak dayvai sahj subhaa-ay.
Indrai no furmaa-i-aa vuthaa chhahbar laa-ay.
An Dhan upjai baho ghanaa keemat kahan na jaa-ay.
Naanak naam salaahi too sabhnaa jee-aa daydaa rijak sambaahi.
Jit khaaDhai sukh oopjai fir dookh na laagai aa-ay. 


When the earth is in distress, it attunes itself with love and sends out a prayer.
The True One hears it, and with total ease is pleased to give Its strength and steadiness.
It sends a command to the Power of Rain, and the rain pours down in torrents.
The wealth of grain and corn grows thick.
A person cannot describe its value.
Oh Naanak, appreciate the Divine Identity.
You, Divine One, cause the life-giving food to be given to all the creatures.
Eating this, peace grows, and the cycle of pain comes no more.

By reciting this Shabad 11 times a day (or for 11 minutes) for 40 days as a global community, we can rewrite the destiny of the earth and adjust our habits to develop new habits that serve the highest good for Mother Earth and humankind.
