In the face of any great change, we confront three destructive impulses: to be alone and withdrawn, to deny or fantasize about the future that’s coming, or to live with greed or scarcity instead of prosperity. This mantra counters these three tendencies and instills the mind with courage and caliber. It is a practice for the Aquarian Age to help us act with integrity and clarity, so that we can remain human under the pressures of the times and the distractions of change, ego, and emotion.
Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine and apply Neck Lock.
Eyes: Look down the nose to see the mantra sheet or the palm. Focus the eyes, pay attention and don't drift. If you do not have the page to read from, use the palm but continue to focus.
Mudra: The left hand is in Gyan Mudra resting on the knee with the arm straight.
Raise the right hand to about 12 inches in front of the chest, holding the mantra sheet and concentrating on the written words as you chant. If you don't have a mantra sheet, angle your hand as if you were reading a sheet of paper, with the palm open and the wrist straight. Ideally, write or print the mantra on a sheet of paper and read the mantra as you chant.
Mantra: Choose a recording of the mantra and chant along with the music. Become a symphony.
