The word perseverance is used to refer to the quality of someone who doesn’t give up no matter what. When you keep up despite discouragement, setbacks, blocks, or negativity around you, you have perseverance. This meditation is known to develop that quality of perseverance. In yogic terms, it is the idea to keep up no matter what.
Posture: Sit in a comfortable meditative posture with a straight spine.
Mudra: Place both thumbs at the base of the Mercury (pinkie) fingers. Fold the other fingers over the thumbs into fists. Place the right fist directly over the left fist at the level of the heart. Keep the fists as tight as possible. Relax the elbows.
Eyes: Eyes are closed. Focus at the Brow Point.
Breath: The breath regulates itself as the mantra is chanted.
