This is the first of 7 in the Aquarian Sadhana mantras. If you had to choose one to chant for, say 11 minutes, this is a great one to do. It balances each of the chakras* and initiates the kundalini, thereby initiating the relationship between our finite Self and the Infinite.
*This is an ashtang (8-limbed) mantra: Ek Ong Kar Sat Nam Siri Wahe Guru. Each word corresponds to each of the 8 chakras:
Ek corresponds to the 1st chakra (at the rectum, which governs our feelings of security). Color: Red
Ong corresponds to the 2nd chakra (the reproductive organs, which governs our sexual & creative energies). Color: Orange
Kar corresponds to the 3rd chakra (the navel point, which governs our personal power). Color: Yellow
Sat corresponds to the 4th chakra (the heart center, which governs boundaries and compassion). Color: Green
Nam corresponds to the 5th chakra (the throat center, which governs the projection/ expression of our personal power). Color: Blue
Siri corresponds to the 6th chakra (the 3rd eye, which governs our ability to see the unseen, know the unknown- our intuition). Color: Indigo
Wahe corresponds to the 7th chakra, also known as the 10th gate (the crown center- fontanel at the top of our head), which governs our ability to know the Oneness of all). Color: Violet
Guru corresponds to the 8th chakra, also known as our aura (the magnetic field that surrounds us, which protects us from negativity and depression). Color: White
While chanting Long Ek Ong Kar, you may also wish to focus on the corresponding chakra and visualize the color as you chant each mantra.

Remember to Tune in with Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo (3x) before starting. And while I am not wearing a head covering here, it is an excellent idea to do so during this meditation.
