Three Minute Kriya to Develop a Meditative Mind

A meditative mind gives one the intuitive ability to realize the consequences of a sequence of actions and therefore gives one a guideline for dealing with cause and effect and minimizing karma

Posture: Rock Pose, sit on the heels with a straight spine.

Mudra: Press the palms together, with the fingers and thumbs pressed together, and stretch the arms straight up over the head with the elbows locked and the upper arms pressed against the ears; apply about 15 pounds of pressure against the ears.

Breath: Deeply inhale, suspend the breath, and completely exhale. The inhalation and retention, together, should last 60 seconds; quickly exhale and repeat. Repeat the series for a total of 3 repetitions.

Eyes: I/10th open.

Mantra: Mentally vibrate any mantra you wish.

Time: 3 minutes.
