Kundalini Yoga: The Joy of Effective Action

This meditation works on an aspect of the mind that gives the ability to enhance and utilize anything that enters your domain so that you are inspired by the bliss of intending an action and having it happen. The joy of intelligent effective action is all around you.

!f this aspect is too strong, you can leap before you check the downsides. You assume if it comes into your domain, you should do something with it. It is hard to let go of things even if they are not your task. "I am worthy if I work” is a common theme.

If this aspect is too weak, you have many ideas but lack a practical sense of how to do it, or you feel insecure about whether it can really happen. The insecurity is, "Will I succeed?”

When this aspect is balanced, you put things in to sequences that lead to desired consequences. You organize resources in yourself and others to deliver a project, goal, and creation. You can be very serious and focused. You quickly discern what is your task and what is not.

Posture: Sit in a meditative pose with spine erect. Arms are by the sides with the elbows bent to 90 degrees and palms facing each other at the level of the navel.

Eyes: Eyes are 1/10th open or looking down the nose.

Har har har har gobinday
Har har har har mukanday
Har har har har udaaray
