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.”

2009 Meditation: The Water Element Narayan Kriya: Clearing and Clarity for Prosperity

Healing Posture: Easy Sitting Pose. Tuck the elbows into the body with the forearms angled up so that the hands are at the level of the Heart Center, chest width or slightly wider. The hands are in Gyan Mudra, palms up.

Eyes: 1/10th open at the tip of the nose

Mantra: Take a deep breath and sing the mantra in a monotone on one breath. Take a deep breath between each recitation of the mantra.

Sat Narayan Hari Narayan Hari Narayan Hari Hari
(Pronunciation: sut naraayun haree naraayan haree naraayan haree haree)

To End: Inhale deeply and hold. Exhale. Repeat twice more.

Time: 11 Minutes

After doing this meditation for 11 minutes, chant Wahe Guru for 3 minutes. Hands are in Gyan Mudra at the knees or relaxed in the lap, right hand resting on the left, with palms up. Chant it in a monotone long form—Wha-Hay-Guroo—with equal time given to each of the three parts of the mantra. This seals the effects of the practice.

Comments: As you hold the breath, visualize your relationships and bless, forgive and understand. Use this breath to heal these relationships; use the mantra to knit back together any tears within the fabric of your relationships.

Other Tips for Success: The 'r' is a quick, percussive sound, almost like 'duh'; the sound is dental, using the tip of the tongue against the palate, for example, the name, Tara, would be pronounced 'tu-duh'. The 'a' in many mantras sounds like a short 'u', for example, sat is pronounced like hut.

Quote of the moment

The mind of woman is very fertile; it thinks at three levels. What she is, what she can do, and what she possibly can be. Man thinks at only one level, what he can do and where is the loss and gain in it. Man's thinking is totally different from a woman's. - Yogi Bhajan
