Meditation Minutes

By Gurucharan Singh Khalsa

Do you ever wonder why some meditations are given for 11 minutes, and others for 62? Do you wonder if it makes a difference? Actually, the various times affect the effects!

In 3 minutes, you affect your circulation and blood chemistry.

In 11 minutes the pituitary gland and the nerves start to learn and change.

In 22 minutes your three minds (negative, positive, and neutral) start to work together so your mental integration changes.

31 minutes affects your whole mind and your aura, and the 31 tattwas[1] are balanced.

37 ½ minutes reflects from the whole aura to Infinity and back, stimulating the perception of Naad—the inner sound.

In 62 minutes your "shadow mind" and your positive projection are integrated.

2 ½ hours completes the cycle of prana and apana so what you gain will hold through the cycle of the day. It holds change in the subconscious.

[1] Tattwas: qualities associated with earth, water, fire, air, and ether
