Every year a large group gathers to chant the Re-Man. We will sit together and continuously chant the Re-Man Shabad for 7 days until 11,000 repetitions have been completed. Yogi Bhajan said that chanting the Re-Man 11,000 times gives one a “Golden Aura.”
The Shabad comes from the writings (Dasam Granth) of the 10th Sikh Guru: Guru Gobind Singh.
Yogi Bhajan said that “the perfection of the Re-Man brings total health to the person that practices it and that it penetrates through the mental body directly to the spirit and develops a Golden aura. You will have wisdom and purity of a yogui.”
Where: Hotel Fiesta Inn Mérida, Yucatán, México.
This year, the Mexican city of Merida was named the American Capital of Culture for a second time, highlighting the Yucatán capital’s abundant riches.
Merida’s culture is a distinctive blend of traditions inherited from the ancient Maya civilization dating back to 2600 B.C. and customs brought by Spanish conquistadors, who began colonizing the territory in the 16th century. The city of Merida itself was founded by Francisco de Montejo y León in 1542 on top of an ancient Maya city called T’ho, whose stonework was repurposed by the Spaniards as foundations to erect lofty Catholic churches and colonial mansions. After 500 years of coexistence, different rituals and beliefs created a vibrant cultural identity that continues to shape this dynamic city.
One of Mérida’s biggest draws is its gastronomy. Local markets, like the bustling Mercado Lucas de Gálvez and Mercado Santiago, are bursting with exotic fruits and vegetables. Wander the markets alone or with a guide to taste local produce like spicy habaneropeppers; chaya, a local green similar to spinach; rambutan, a red shell fruit with sweet white pulp often sold as “agua fresca” juice; Seville oranges, a staple in Yucatecan cooking for its acidity; and huaya, a lime exclusive to the Yucatán region that’s typically eaten with a sprinkling of chili powder.
Narrow streets are safe and squeaky clean with picturesque periwinkle, sherbet pink, mint green, and vibrant peach facades. The main zócalo is a spacious square trimmed with well-preserved 16th century mansions built for the family of founder Francisco de Montejo, as well as San Ildefonso Cathedral, one of the oldest churches in Latin America. Further north lies the leafy Plaza Santa Lucia, a neighborly hub where locals come to socialize and dance, and Paseo Montejo, a wide tree-lined avenue inspired by the Champs-Élysées and dotted with palatial Beaux Arts homes. On Sundays, city plazas come to life with locals enjoying cultural events, folkloric dancing and tented markets.
