Taught by Yogi Bhajan on July 21, 2001
"If you practice this, you will start hearing the inner voice so strong, you don't need a friend. You will exactly know what is being said inside."
-Yogi Bhajan 7/21/01
Begin, as always, with the Adi Mantra (Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo} 3 - 5 times.
Posture: Sit straight in a cross-legged position. Place your hands over the ears with the thumbs stretched forward under the jawbone.
Eyes: Eyes are closed.
Mantra: Pull up the navel on each word as you chant the mantra, Sat Siri Siri Akal (the music used in this class was from Raga Sadhana by Sangeet Kaur and Harjinder Singh). Be straight and be positive. Try to hear the inner voice.
Time: Continue for 31 minutes (you can start with 11 minutes and work up gradually).
To end: Inhale deeply, hold, and press your ears as hard as you can. Exhale. Repeat one more time. Then inhale deeply again, hold, and keeping the hands over the ears, bend the body from side to side 2-3 times. Relax.
If you feel dizzy after doing this kriya, drink water to come into balance.
