Developing a Meditative Mind

Taught on 1/10/00

In the Computer Age we need a meditative mind and applied consciousness. We need to develop that mental power that can guide us so we are not ruled by outside circumstances. This exercise uses a simple touch with your breath of life so that your body and your subtle body can bring changes for your betterment. It is a natural form of meditation.

Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with your spine straight, chin in and chest lifted. Use the right hand to pinch the right earlobe between your thumb and Jupiter (index) finger (the hand is like Gyan Mudra, except the earlobe is in between the thumb and index finger).

Let the arm hang so that the weight of the right arm pulls the earlobe gently downward. This combination of pinch and pull is acupressure for the brain. Place your left hand over your navel.

Eyes: Close your eyes.

Breath: Breathe through the mouth. You must whistle on the inhalation. Then breathe out.

Time: Continue for 31 minutes.

To Finish: Inhale deeply, hold the breath for 15-20 seconds, stretch your spine, and pinch the earlobe as much as you can.

Exhale. Inhale deeply again, hold the breath for 15-20 seconds, stretch your spine and pinch the earlobe as much as you can. Exhale.

Last time, inhale deeply, hold the breath for 15-20 seconds, stretch your spine, press your left hand against your navel, and pinch the earlobe as much as you can. Exhale and relax.

This meditation can be found in Praana, Praanee, Praanayam, available through KRI.
