Meditation for Maturity and Wisdom

Taught by Yogi Bhajan on 8/2/96

Your handicaps travel ahead of you, and your reputation is known before you even reach a place. So it is very beautiful for humans to drop their past, change their attitude, have an altitude, and make sense to themselves. Then everybody can be sensibly made to understand that you are beautiful, bountiful and blissful, trustworthy, gracious, with divinity and dignity, and you can be a friend unto Infinity. You must understand: there is no prize which can give you back your honor.

To make sense to yourself:

  • First look great, look gracious, look good.
  • Deal with everything from a point of wisdom, and say things to the other person so he can understand what you say. Say it so that it's understood.
  • Be priceless in all dealings; it doesn't matter where and why.

Posture and Mudra: Bend your elbows down by your sides. Extend the forearms up so the palms are a few inches in front of each shoulder, palms flat and facing the body. Then bend the palms back slightly at the wrists, until the palms are facing up and are somewhat relaxed and somewhat cupped. Just hold this position.

Movement: Without using the breath in any specific way, begin to pump the navel point powerfully. Pump very hard and very fast. (Not Breath of Fire.)

Eyes: Stare at the tip of the nose.

Mantra: None indicated.

Time: 31 minutes.

To End: Inhale, and pump the navel vigorously. Hold 10 seconds. Exhale. Repeat 3 times total. Relax.
