Kriya to Experience the Joy of Effective Action

This meditation works on the aspect of the mind that allows you to take opportunities and see things through.

The Practice

If this aspect of the mind is too strong, you can leap before you check the downsides. You assume that just because an opportunity arises, therefore you should do something with it.

If this aspect is too weak, you have many ideas but lack a practical sense of how to do it, or feel insecure about whether it can really happen.

When it is balanced, you are able to make a plan and execute it, organizing resources in yourself and others to deliver a desired outcome. It is easier to focus, and you are able to quickly discern what is your task and what is not. The joy of intelligent effective action is all around you.

Posture: Sit in a meditative pose with spine erect. Arms are by the sides with the elbows bent to 90 degrees and palms facing each other at the level of the navel.

Mantra & Movement: Chant the mantra:

Har har har har gobinday
Har har har har mukanday
Har har har har udaaray
Har har har har apaaray
Har har har har hareeang
Har har har har kareeang
Har har har har nimaamay
Har har har har akaamay

God God God God Sustainer
God God God God Liberator
God God God God Uplifter
God God God God Carrying Through
God God God God Destroyer of All
God God God God Creator of All
God God God God Beyond Category
God God God God Beyond Desire

With each chant of the sound Har pulse the hands in toward each other, then back out. The width of the movement is about 6 inches. It is quick, forceful, and precise. Hold the hands still for the other sounds such as Gobinday.

Eyes: Eyes are 1/10th open or looking down the nose.


Continue for 31 minutes. To end, inhale deeply, tighten the forearms, hands, and fingers. Focus at the brow. Exhale powerfully through the mouth. Do this three times. Relax.
