This is a meditation to practice for the rest of your life. It is a simple exercise that can give you the power to heal. So much of our suffering comes from the perception of separation, and this mantra is a means to reclaim the wholeness of which we’re a part.
There are several variations of this healing meditation, and the moving meditations can be done alone or with a partner.
Posture: Sit in Easy Pose.
Mudra: Put your left hand on your navel point. Your right arm is by your right side, elbow bent, with the palm facing forward. Hold your right hand up as if you are taking an oath.
Movement: The movement of the kriya is timed with the chanting of "Raa Maa Daa Saa Saa Say So Hung."
On Raa slowly begin moving your right arm forward from the starting position and continue slowly moving so that your arm is straight out in front of you with the palm facing downward at Hung. The movement begins with Raa and is completed at Hung.
Then the right arm moves back to the starting position by your side and the movement begins again at Raa. The right arm moves as if giving a blessing.
Start with 11 minutes and work up to 31 minutes. Gradually over time, you may increase the time to a maximum practice time of 2 ½ hours.
You may do this kriya using your left hand to hold the hand of the person you want to heal. The right hand moves as described above. You may chant the mantra out loud or mentally and silently.
If the person needing healing is very ill, shaking and shivering, you can place your left hand on their navel point and place your right hand on their pituitary. You may chant the mantra out loud or mentally and silently.
Ra Ma Da Sa, also known as the Siri Gaitri mantra, is a mantra for healing. It loosely translates to “the sun, the moon, the earth, Infinity, all of that, I am thou.” Ra Ma Da Sa is a sushmuna mantra, with eight sounds that stimulate the kundalini to flow through the central channel of the spine.
The first part of the mantra ascends and expands into the Infinite. The second half of the mantra pivots those qualities of the highest and most subtle ether, and pulls them back down. It interweaves the ether with the earth, aligning us with the unconditional love of the heart space, from which spontaneous healing occurs.
