Comment: Yogi Bhajan taught this meditation on September 11, 2001. On that day he said, in part, “This whole thing has hurt every American. Whether we like it or not, there shall be a reaction. Don’t become victim to that reaction. It has to happen. World shall act insane. There’s no sanity in what has happened. Nobody among you could believe that this would happen. Still it has happened. Unknowingly, people are attacked personally, collectively and nationally for no reason. We should send the healing energy to those who are still in pain. We should show our oneness of heart.”
