breath

“When the breath of life becomes short, you become short tempered. When the breath of life becomes long and deep, you understand who you are."

The slogan of Age of Aquarius. “I know, let me help take you there.”

Sat Kriya

1. Sit on the heels and stretch the arms over the head so that the elbows hug the ears (A).

2. Interlock all the fingers except the first ones (index) which point straight up (B).



Sat Kriya is an essential key to the processes of Kundalini Yoga. It is one of the few exercises that is a complete action in itself. That is the connotation of the word, "kriya"; an action or series of actions that completes a process and has a predictable outcome. Most kriyas consist of a series of exercises that synergize. Sat Kriya can stand alone like a precious gem. The main effect is a control and balance of the lower three chakras or energy distribution centers in the body. It does this by mixing the prana and apana at the navel center. This generates a heat in the system and opens the inner channels to the upward flow and rotation of energy. Sat Kriya also rejuvenates the sexual system and helps the brain and body to recover from toxicity and memory loss due to drug abuse. It is good for removing energy imbalances in the lower three chakras and, as a result, is good for problems in the lower back and alleviating mild depression.

A beginning student should start with 3 minutes of this every day as part of a personal practice. The times can be built up from that base.

Posture: Sit on the heels (Vajrasan asana). The heels are straight up into the buttocks, stimulating two acupuncture pressure points, one in each buttock. The knees can be slightly open. Lock in the chin; stretch the arms over the head until the elbows hug the sides of the head. Interlace all the fingers except the index fingers which are together and pointed straight up. Cross one thumb over the other.

Focus: The eyes are closed and focused at the third-eye point.

Mantra: The mantra is "Sat Nam". Chant the "Sat" from the navel point. As you chant "Sat", pull the navel point in with an obvious jerking motion. Imagine you are receiving pranic energy from God / your higher source through the navel point. Chant "Nam" and send the energy back out into the cosmos through the third-eye point.

End: Inhale, hold the breath and apply root lock, squeezing the energy up from the buttocks up the spine and out the top of your head through the "crown" or 7th chakra. Exhale, release the lock and repeat two more times. Relax in corpse pose for at least as long as you have practiced Sat Kriya. (Ideally, the relaxation is twice the length of time as you practiced this exercise.)

The rhythmic contraction and relaxation produces waves of energy that circulate, energize and heal the body. While chanting, the spine stays still and straight. This is neither a spinal flex nor a pelvic thrust. You stay firmly seated on the heels through all the motions of the kriya. The abdominal contraction is focused at the navel point. There is an automatic contraction of the rectum and the sex organ areas as in the lower body lock called "root" lock or mulabandha, but the lock is not forced and is pulled naturally from the navel.

To build Sat Kriya in time and effect, start with rotation cycles: 3 minutes of Sat Kriya with three minutes of relaxation. Repeat this cycle 3 to 5 times. Build gradually. Then switch the cycle to 5 minutes Sat Kriya and 5 minutes rest. You can then add 3 to 5 minutes to the kriya time as you are comfortable until you are able to do an entire 31 minutes.

KY exercise miracle bend

What It Will Do for You

This exercise is called “Miracle Bend.” It adjusts the navel point and helps bring an emotional and angry person to calmness. 1f the spine were bent to 90° and the breath were four times per minute, it would also totally calm you, but it would take a very long time, whereas this exercise takes only a short while. There will be a strong and automatic tendency to shake in the posture.


How to Do It

In a standing position with knees and heels together, feet are flat on the ground and angling out to the sides for balance, arms are raised straight overhead close to the ears with the palms facing forward. The thumbs can be locked together.


Keeping the legs straight, bend back from the base of the spine 20°. The head, spine, and arms form an unbroken curve with the arms remaining in a line with the ears (1).


Hold the posture and keep the breath long, deep and gentle. Continue for 2 minutes.


From this position, very slowly bend forward to the maximum extent keeping the arms straight and close to the ears (2). Inhale and with the breath held in as long as possible, pump the navel point. Then exhale and do the same on the held exhale. Continue this process for 2 minutes.


KY meditation to prevent aging


What It Will Do for You

To brighten your auric light, have a radiant face and prevent yourself from aging, practice this meditation.

How to Do It

Sit straight in easy pose. Chant the Mul Mantra, inhaling completely before each phrase:

EK ONG KAR; SAT NAAM; KARTA POORKH (let the whole breath go through the nose); NIR BHAO; NIR VAIR; AKAL MOORT; AJOONEE; SAIBHUNG; GUR PRASAAD; JAP (let the whole breath go through the nose); AAD SASHSHHH (releases breath with a hiss); JUGAAD SACHSHHH (releases breath with a hiss); HAI BHEE SACHSHHH (releases breath with a hiss); NAANAK HOSEE BHEE SACHSHHH (releases breath with a hiss).

Each time you inhale you must do so to your maximum capacity and each phrase must use the entire breath. On words like AKAAL MOORT, where the sopund isn't reaslly extended, release the breath through the mouth with a light "uhh..." sound. On KARTA POORKH and JAP, release the breth through the nose. This is the whole secret: the last 4 phrases are ended with the breath released through the mouth like the sound of a hissing snake.

Chant for a minimum of 11 minutes a day for 40 days. Since each person has a different lung capacity, this meditation should be done individually instaed of in a group.

Note: This is one of five meditations given specifically “to prepare for the gray period of the planet and to bring mental balance.”

Power and Effects of the Daily Banis

Japji Sahib: This bani controls one's "ji," one's soul. When your ji, your being, is endangered, when the radiance of your soul is weak, recite Japji. Guru
Nanak said that the thirty-eight pauris of Japji would liberate the humanity from the cycles of birth and death.

Shabad Hazare: This is the highest love letter by a disciple, written by Arjan to Guru Ram Das. Its gift is that it gives the benefits of a thousand shabads,
and one's soul will merge directly with God. It makes the separated ones come home with grace. One who recites this shabad will never be separated from
their beloved.

Jaap Sahib: The naad of Jaap Sahib rouses the soul and the self of the Being. "Sahib" also means grace. Recite it when your position is endangered, or
when your authoritative personality is weak. This bani brings grace and greatness. It will also give you the ability that, whatever people say, you will
automatically be able to compute what they are actually saying. Once you are able to recite it correctly, it will give you the power, the siddhi, that whatever
you say must happen. Man can direct God, and God can direct man. Guru Gobind Singh recited Jaap Sahib so we won't become beggars at the doors of
others.

Tavprasad Swaye: This bani was spoken by Guru Gobind Singh. When you are not getting any satisfaction out of life, this is the bani to recite.

Anand Sahib: Whoever recites the forty pauris of Anand Sahib will have endless bliss, because the Guru is limitless. In this bani, mind and body are
explained in relation to cosmic divinity. Guru Amar Das gave us the song of bliss, which is Anand Sahib, to qualify the mind and to understand the depth.
For husband and wife to get together, recite it together, alternating sutras (lines).

Rehiras Sahib: This bani is recited after one has worked and is tired. It adds energy (raa-hu) to one's being, to one's total concept. Also, recite it when
your principle worldly wealth is endangered. In naad, reh means live, and raas means commodity, so Rehiraas means living commodity. Rehiras Sahib
helps you when you are physically weak, or weak in money, property and earthly goods.

Kirtan Sohila: This bani is done before sleep at night. It is the most harmonious naad ever uttered. It multiplies the aura to the sensitivity of protection that
it eliminates any negativity for miles and miles. When you are endangered by any species of direct or indirect source, and when you want to protect
yourself with the surrounding of the entire magnetic field of the earth, recite Kirtan Sohila.

Word Definitions
Rensubhai - Continual repetition of Gurbani
Naad - The essence of all sounds
Gurbani - A perfect combination of sounds related to all the 5 elements in complete balance
Bani - That which ??? on the Naad and is balanced

One who knows the naad knows the Aad, which is God.

Siri Guru Granth Sahib

Siri Guru Granth Sahib is the Guru, and it contains the Guru. What is the Guru? It is the formula for experiencing one's own divinity. Siri Guru Granth
Sahib has the power to give one the experience of God because it is a Siri Guru. Here is the progression: Guru, the one who tells you the truth of the
formula, and Siri Guru, the one who tells you the universality of the formula, the application of the entire applied formula. Siri Guru Granth Sahib always
tells you what you need to hear in order to be able to rise above the limitations of the particular time and space. Waheguru is the ecstasy of the experience
of the application of the formula. In other words, by doing what the Guru says, you experience the blessing of that.

The Science of Naad and Gurbani
Naad means "the essence of all sounds." All languages contain sounds which relate to one or more of the five elements of air, fire, water, earth and ether.
Gurbani is a perfect combination and permutation of sounds relating to all the five elements in complete balance. When Guru Arjan Dev, the fifth Guru
Nanak, compiled Siri Guru Granth Sahib in 1604, he only put in those banis which were in naad. These compositions were called Gurbani.

When we break up the words, "Siri Guru Granth Sahib," into their naad, the syllables of each word tell the essence of the meaning of Siri Guru Granth
Sahib. Every word has a naad, and every naad has a combination.

Siri means the entire light of the sun's creativity, Lakshmi. Whatever has been created, whatever is possibly created, shall be created or can be created, is
called siri.

Guru ("Gu" means darkness, and "ru" means light) means from darkness to light, from ignorance to knowledge. Guru is one who gives you the technology
to remove your ignorance about something.

Granth ("gra" means knot, "an" means ultimate, and "naath" means owner, master, God) is that which creates the ultimate knot with God. Anything which
creates the ultimate knot with God is called a granth. Granth is not a book and can never be a book. Sahib ("saa" means light, infinity, and "hib" means
now) is the totality of here and now.

How Naad Works In Recitation of Gurbani
There are eighty-four meridian points on the upper palate of a human's mouth. One can feel that upper palate with the tongue and experience its different
surfaces. There are two rows of meridian points on the upper palate and on the gum behind the upper teeth. The tongue stimulates those meridian points,
and they in turn stimulate the hypothalamus which makes the pineal gland radiate. When the pineal gland radiates, it creates an impulse in the pituitary
gland. When the pituitary gland gives impulses, the entire glandular system secretes and a human being obtains bliss. This is the science.

Gurbani is the combination of the tongue with the meridian points. When you read and recite Gurbani, it stimulates your hypothalamus. It is totally
different than any scriptures because Gurbani is made in a scientific way. One who knows the naad, knows the aad, which is the primal creativity. One
who knows the aad is Parameshwar, the supreme God.

The whole language of Gurbani has the power to make a person divine, just in its recitation, if done correctly. One need not be concerned with the
meaning to experience a change in consciousness. Bani has to be understood by the heart, not by the head. There is no power in the head; it is in the heart.
The lead is for God and the heart is for you. That is why Guru Gobind Singh asked for the head, and not for the heart. "Whosoever lives with head to God
and heart for self, that prayer is complete." (Siri Singh Sahib Yogi Bhajan)

The entire Siri Guru Granth Sahib is the calling of the Beloved. It is in naad. The following are the daily banis given by Guru Gobind Singh, and which
tattvas (element) they relate to:
à Japji, Shabad Hazare Ether
à Jaap Sahib, Tavprasad Swaye Air
à Anand Sahib Fire
à Rehiras (including Bentee Chaupaee) Water
à Kirtan Sohila Earth

These banis should be read from the gutkaa (book of banis), so that one does not get engulfed in one's thoughtfulness. They are best read, even though
one may have them memorized.



Experiencing and Understanding Gurbani
The Guru's Word (Gurbani) is what the Guru spoke. It is the imprint of the essence of God. It is the pathway to God. If the ordinary human being speaks
it, it will always elevate him to that state of consciousness of the Guru. The Guru's consciousness is united with God, so the person will automatically get
united with God, if he speaks the same words. It is a scientific and direct way to unite the finite with the Infinite Consciousness. The hypothalamus will get
the same tingling. The impulses of the pituitary will function the same way and get the other glands to secrete also in the same way as it was in the body of
Guru Nanak.

Gurbani is nothing but a total illustrated, facilitated science of naad for human knowledge. It is an individual effort. Read Gurbani in the way Guru says it,
and understand it, and you will be in such ecstasy you will not believe it! Concentration on the construction of the word, and the sound is the proper way
to recite Gurbani. As you are creating the sound, the meaning will automatically come to you, now or later. It is just a matter of time and space. You must
listen to your own construction of the Gurbani. This is the technical way in Naad Yoga.

There are two ways to go about understanding Gurbani. The first is to know the meaning through purposeful study; and the second is to recite it, and you
will automatically understand the meaning intuitively. Gurbani has to be recited with the tongue, through japa. But, when you read meditatively for the
purpose of understanding the meaning, it is okay.

The Power of the Shabad, Gurbani Kirtan, and Nam Simran
In Siri Guru Granth Sahib each shabad has its own individual domain, power, ridhi (worldly riches), sidhi (spiritual power), and nau nidhi (nine
treasures). All occult powers are there. The recitation of shabads gives you the power to redeem the environments. Shabad is a part of the power of God,
and when the shabad merges in you, you become God.

The lotus feet of God is the shabad of God. The sound itself will uplift you and take away the disease and sorrow from within you. Meditate on the lotus
feet of God in your heart. The sound of the spirit is the shabad. Decorate yourself with it. Shabad is the fountain of spirit. It will always keep you flowing
and growing.

The neutral mind records the shabad, the Truth. When your mind is freaking out, the shabad automatically comes. The shabad has the power to control
you and your mind. Otherwise there is no way you or your mind can be controlled. Shabad brings inner balance. The power of inner balance is the shabad,
and the power of the shabad is inner balance.

When controlled, our minds can create great things, because the power of the mind is also very infinite. When disciplined, it can change the vibrations and
the magnetic psyche of the earth. That is why we come before Siri Guru Granth Sahib and do kirtan (singing of God's praises). Kirtan is to change the
magnetic psyche of the universe with those vibrations of the Word of the Guru, the naad, so that we can principally enrich the self in ecstasy.

Nam simran (continuos remembrance of God's Name, of Self) is the preparation for Gurbani. You grind the ground, make the earth ready, and then you
do simran. Simran is gurmantra (mantra given by the Guru). Khalsa is to recite Waheguru, and a Sikh is to recite Sat Nam. Sat Nam can elevate the
consciousness of any person to Infinity, and Waheguru can bring you the experience of that Infinity. Wha means Infinite, he means Thou, and guru means
self. When chanted, it brings you very near God. Sat Nam is a panch shabad (mantra containing five parts). Saa means Infinity, taa means birth, naa
means death, and maa means resurrection. Sat Nam is the shabad in which you have superiority over God. God is a slave in the hand of the devotees. Sat
Nam purifies the entire time and space, when you speak it even once; it does not matter when. It is superior self-power of God. God is remembered by His
actions. Nam simran is a must to prepare for Gurbani to have its effect. It is the complete science of the word and sound. It changes a human's biological
and psychological metabolism of his body, mind, and soul.

Nitnem: Daily Recitation of Guru's Bani
The following is a story which Siri Singh Sahib ji told at Khalsa Women's Training Camp: "There is a surprising story about my grandmother. She never
spoke in a loud voice. I have never seen that woman offending anybody, and I have never seen a single human being offend her. The respect was so great
that everyone would settle disputes by Mata ji's decision, without going to court. Whatever she would say, people would accept it as the truth and nothing
but the truth. That reputation and non-offensiveness was built from her perfection of her nitnem, her sadhana and Gurbani.

I am trying to illustrate to you that after a certain age in life, if you do not have nitnem and sadhana, then you will not churn yourself. When milk is
churned, it takes a lot of milk to make a little butter. As milk has to be churned to make butter, like has to be churned. Gurbani works to churn the brain
waves through the hyp0othalmus. You need not be a Sikh. In India, for example, there are a lot of Hindus and Muslims who recite Gurbani. Gurbani is for
a person who wants to be graceful, a person who wants to be balanced, and a person who wants to do things by their radiance. A person's presence alone
should see the job done."

Nitnem in Gurbani gives you a very powerful meditative mind. It gives you the balance required. Energy comes to a person from the head, and the head is
the distributing center through the spine. It is a must that when one reads Gurbani, it be done in the correct harmony and rhythm.

It is compulsory for Khalsa to read all the five banis daily. They were given so that a person's incarnated personality may elevate itself to defend through
any negativity or misfortune.

Daily Yoga Meditation Shown to Improve Memory, May Prevent Alzheimer’s

http://www.seniorjournal.com/NEWS/Alzheimers/2007/7-06-12-DailyYoga.htm

Kirtan Kriya Meditation

Instructions

Based on an original research pilot project of the

Alzheimer’s Prevention Foundation International

Kirtan Kriya meditation, for increased mental energy, increased creativity and heightened intuition, utilizes the primal sounds that mark the stages of life. They are: Saa, which means birth, infinity, or cosmos; Taa, which means life, or existence; Naa, which means death or completion; and Maa, which means rebirth. Chant these sounds repeatedly, in order: Saa Taa Naa Maa.

L Form of Concentration

Repeat this mantra while sitting with your spine straight. The focus of concentration is the L form (see illustration above). With each syllable, imagine the sound flowing in through the top of your head and out your third eye point, in the middle of your forehead. For two minutes, chant in your normal voice. For the next two minutes, chant in a whisper. For the next four minutes, chant silently. Then reverse the order, whispering for two minutes, and out loud for two minutes, for a total of twelve minutes. The mudras, or finger positions, are very important in this kriya. On Saa, touch the index fingers of each hand to your thumbs. On Taa, touch your middle fingers to your thumbs. On Naa, touch your ring fingers to your thumbs, and on Maa, touch your little fingers to your thumbs (see illustration below). To come out of the kriya, inhale very deeply, stretch your hands above your head, and then bring them down in a sweeping motion as you exhale.

Dhi-aan Bibhoot charaa-o
and meditation the ashes you apply on your body.

Taatee geho aatam bas kar kee
Catch your burning soul (self) and stop the flames.

Let the soul (self) be the alms bowl in which you collect the sweet Naam and this will be the only support you will ever need.

Baajay param taar tat har ko

What is Shabad?
Shabad means without the ego (Sha- ego, bad- without). Shabads are sacred combinations of sounds that when recited bring a state of ecstasy, healing, and grace. Shabad is a sound current that permeates the entire being on every level from subtle to physical. Shabad permeates the mind and replaces unhealthy thought patterns with healing vibrations.

One Shabad in particular resonates especially well with the practice of Bound Lotus. We refer to it as the “Ray Man” Shabad, from the first line – “Ray Man eh bideh jog kamao…” – Oh my mind, practice yoga in this way…

In the Ray Man Shabad we journey into the way of yoga, or union. It is an instruction to the soul to practice yoga in every thought, word, or action. It is about living in reality and being human and still achieving inner transformation and discovery of the Self.

When you listen to and/or recite this Shabad, there is a sound current that has a subtle but profound effect on all levels of your being. This sound current travels through every cell of the body and adjusts your inner vibratory frequency to a happier, healthier, holier state. This has been described as a state of grace, the state of the Golden Buddha, and by many other terms in many spiritual traditions.
The Ray Man Shabad is uniquely beautiful and perfect for Bound Lotus. This Shabad permeates the mind with the sacred sound current which allows you to experience your own infinity. This Shabad has eight verses. Eight turned on its side is infinity. (The number eight relates to and represents infinity) In Bound Lotus the physical body creates the symbol of infinity with the position of the body, arms and legs.

The Ray Man Shabad was written by Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Guru of the Sikhs, who was a master of yoga, a master of poetry, a master warrior, and a master of the Shabad Guru. By practicing the Ray Man Shabad with the Bound Lotus we embrace the essence of Guru Gobind Singh, the essence of fearlessness, and the ability to rise above any challenge, any chaos, or any dream to find the state of pure presence and awareness in the pure golden throne of our own discipline and daily practice.

“Let every cell of your body vibrate and extend that vibration to every extent. Feel it as a big whirlwind of energy, circling with each cell of your body.” - Yogi Bhajan

What Yogi Bhajan says about this Shabad:
“Guru Gobind Singh’s entire Shabad is meant to penetrate through the mental body, right into your own spirit. The secret of this Shabad is that it is a pure Naad Yoga. The combination and permutation of sound is totally practical in his Shabad. The tongue creates a certain pressure on the upper palate. This Shabad has the capacity, if man is bewitched by incurable disease, if sung properly through the tongue and mouth, can bring total health. Each sound must be said exactly correctly. It can lead to perfect state of mental health and surrounding spirit.”

“Perfection of this Shabad can make you like a Golden Buddha. You will have wisdom, you will have the purity of a Yogi, and you will have an essence. I request everyone who believes in higher values to remember this Shabad in perfect sound. It is very perfect combination. As a Shabad you can sing 11 times a day, you will feel the miraculous effect of it on your body, mind, and soul.”

Yoga and Meditation for Stress

domenica, giugno 03, 2007

Meditation for the Arc Line

Meditation for the Arc Line

  1. Sit in Easy Pose, eyes closed. Drop your elbows, holding forearms out, parallel to the ground, palms flat. Cup your palms and hold them above your knees.

  2. Move your arms behind your head, stretching your arms as far over your shoulders as possible. Visualise scooping up water and casting it through your arc line, over your shoulders, by flicking your wrists. The action is seamless and rhythmic. Carry on at four scoops to 10 seconds chanting 'Wahe (pronounced Wahay) Guru, Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru, Wahe Jeeo' for a time between 3 and 31 minutes. Do one complete round per repetition of the mantra; scooping up, throwing, and coming back to the starting point.

  3. To complete, breathe in, and stretch your hands back as far as possible. Hold for 10-15 seconds. Breathe out, repeat three times in total. Relax.

Yogi Bhajan comments: 'This meditation is for the arc line and to clear karma stored there. Wahe Guru is just a hand of prayer. Remember the power of infinity is not outside, it is inside. When 'I' and infinity create an impact, you'll become totally Divine. Otherwise there's a duality that keeps you away from reality.'

Commentary on the Meditation

Yogi Bhajan teaches a model of the energetic body as comprising five parts: the radiant body, the subtle body, the pranic body, the auric body and the arc line, each with specific and complementary roles.

The arc line describes an arc of light from earlobe to earlobe, known as the halo. A brilliant arc line is recognised by many cultures as a the mark of a realised transcendent consciousness.

It is seen in magnificent depictions of the Boddhisattvas in Tibetan Sacred art, in the deities of the Hindu pantheon and the iconography of orthodox Christianity.

The function of the arc line is to attract and repel different qualities of energy and store energetic repercussions you have experienced and created in your life. This residue dulls the brilliance of the arc line and reduces its impulse frequency.

This practice enables you to gently erase the tarnished detritus from your arc line using a precise combination of visualisation, projection, sound current and movement typical of the multi-sensory mode of a kundalini kriya.

Maintaining a visual image at the Agia centre, the pituitary gland or third eye, etches the projection at its screen which is then transferred via the visual cortex to the brain and the endocrine system through the blood, to the organs and tissues. Water is a universal healing agent, a global metaphor for spiritual sustenance which quenches the fire in the soul. Water cools, cures, cleanses, refreshes and revitalises.

In the realm of metaphysics, the present is before you and past behind you. The movement of the hands which have the five elements in harmonious balance, showers the arc line with water and carries the spent energetic residue into the past behind you.

The entire bio-system is immersed in the sonic template of Wahe Guru Jeeo: 'ecstasy is transformation of my soul'. This mantra was first recorded by revered Rishi Patanjali, author of the seminal text The Eight Limbs of Yoga, and adopted hubdreds of years later as the 'the mantra of transformation' by the Sikh Gurus, a line of yogi sages culminating in the warrior saint, Guru Gobinde Singh.

Arc Line Meditation

Your arc line can protect not only yourself, but also others. It can also help you project and manifest whatever you want in your life.

The arc line is the 6th chakra or energy center located in the center of the brow at the “third eye.” Your arc line is the balance point between the physical realm and the cosmic realm; it coordinates the inflow of universal knowledge from your higher self and integrates it through your body, mind and spirit. By regulating and balancing the nervous and glandular systems, the arc line protects your heart center so it is safe for you to live with an open heart.


This meditation, also know as Dhrib Dhristi Lochina Karma Kriya, will develop your ability to acquire the insight of the future. Its effect on the subconscious mind will be heightened if practiced on the full moon. Mastery of this practice brings the power to heal with your eyes and inspire with your words. You will be able to project your personality and to know the effect of any cause you begin.

Sit in an easy cross-legged position. Bite the tips of the front teeth together. Touch the tongue to the upper palate and focus the eyes on the tip of the nose. Mentally project the mantra “Sa Ta Na Ma” out from the center of the brow (also called the third eye). Practice for 15 to 31 minutes, 1-1/2 hours.
