Indra Nittri means the eyes of Indra. It connotes the feeling that every pore of the body becomes an all-seeing eye. It represents knowledge that comes through the soul and intuition. The body is a temple through which you can experience the consciousness of the Infinite. As that happens, all knowledge and bliss flow through you.
This mantra—the Siri Mantra—contains the essence of the wisdom of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, the holy scripture of the Sikhs. It is said to bring great intuition to the practitioner.
After chanting this mantra, don’t say anything negative for some time. It is a creative chant which can amplify and manifest anything you speak. When you are in this state, give your prayers and most positive projections for health, happiness, and holiness.
Posture: Sit in Easy Pose, with a light jalandhar bandh.
Mudra: Grasp the knees firmly with the hands. Keep the chest and spine lightly lifted.
Eyes: The eyes are closed or 1/10th open.
Mantra: Meditate through the Brow Point on the movements of the tongue as you chant the Siri Mantra in a steady rhythm:
EK ONG KAAR, SAT GUR PARSAAD
SAT GUR PARSAAD, EK ONG KAAR
Pull the Navel Point in on EK. Release the Navel Point on KAAR. Lift the Diaphragm Lock with SAT and GUR. Release the lock on the sound of PARSAAD. This will create a wave-like motion of tension and relaxation in the torso. It will release great heat in the body.
Continue for 11-62 minutes. To end, inhale, hold the breath comfortably, and relax.
Supposedly this meditation was taught by Guru Nanak to his eldest son Baba Siri Chand, who became a great baal yogi—one who does not grow old and still looks like a young boy even in his old age. It is said he lived to be over 160 years and was acknowledged as a great yogi by many different traditions.
