This meditation is said to bring the realm of thoughtlessness quickly. It brings the awareness that redemption is not necessary; we are already redeemed. When we experience inner calm, it leads to the experience of the entire universe, and nature serves us in harmony.
This 11-minute practice requires some pressure at the backs of the shoulders, which works to awaken the heart. It is not always easy to keep the arms up. If you feel pain in the physical posture, modify or visualize as needed.
Posture: Sit with a straight spine in a comfortable cross-legged position.
Mudra: Place the thumbs over the Sun and Mercury fingers (ring and pinkie), extending the Jupiter and Saturn fingers (index and middle) straight upward. Pull the elbows and the shoulders back, creating a pressure on the spine between the shoulders and the nape of the neck. The hands are held at ear level.
Eyes and mental focus: Closed. Concentrate on the top of the head.
Breath: Breathe long and deep.
Continue for 11minutes.
