Kriya to Communicate and Create Companionship

Originally taught by Yogi Bhajan on September I 0, 1983

Learn companionship. Communication should create companionship. "C" is equal to "C." Communication creates companionship. In life never try to control. Whatever you will control, you will pay the toll. Whatever you will win, you will lose the self. Create companionship and create companionship with communication. Purposefully in your life believe and learn that life is a communicative companionship.

Posture: Get into pairs and sit in Easy Pose.

Part I

Mudra: Put your left hand over your Heart Center. Put your right hand out, palm to palm with your partner. As you speak, touch hands with your partner. Whenever you speak, as the lips move, the hands must create the same effect. Let the movement of your hands reflect the movement of your lips and the movement of your conversation. Say good things. Communicate and create companionship. Practice, practice for the experience.

Part II

Now sit in Easy Pose and repeat after the Teacher:

"I shall never transport my mood."

"I shall never transport my mood."

"I shall never transport my mood."

"My mood is not me."

"My mood is not me."

"My mood is not me."

"I shall never transport my mood."

"My mood is not me."

"My feelings are my feelings."

"I will deal with my feelings myself."

"I will transport myself to deal with other selves."

"I will not transport my feelings to deal with other feelings"

"I need harmony"

"Not clash."

"I shall not be rash and transport my mood."

"Mood is no good."

"Mood is mood."

"Mood is no good."

"Mood is mood."

"I am bright and beautiful."

"I am bright and beautiful."

"I am bright and beautiful."

To end: Now assess yourself. Go inside and assess your gains. Feel it and understand your ability to communicate.

Comments: From the minute you start talking there needs to be a range—Improvement, dis-improvement, satisfaction, dissatisfaction—in your communication style. This exercise is meant to benefit your communication style.

Time: Continue for 35 minutes.

Part Ill

Posture: Sit in Easy Pose as though you were a great yogi, who has sat for 200 years at the top of the mountain, through snow, through rain, and through time-and never budged an inch.

Mudra: Not specified.

Mantra: This mantra is a special sound. It is a lesson in the creation of sounds that can melt the hearts of people.

                        Har       Har        Har        Re            Har (pause)   Har

Use only the tip of the tongue. Speak evenly, with a slight emphasis on Re. (Re is chanted a half-step note higher than Har.) Feel that when you speak, you are communicating directly, face to face with Almighty God. When you utter these words. it's a communication with the Infinite, most beautiful thing which is called God. Whatever your image is of God, communicate with that. It may not mean anything to anyone else: but it means all to you.

To End: Inhale deeply and hold for 30-45 seconds. Any part of your body you feel is weak, take your inhaled breath to that area and reenergize it. Let it go. Relax.

Time:  Continue for 11 minutes.
