This is a bij (seed) mantra meditation. Bij mantras (such as Sat Naam) are sounds which can totally rearrange habit patterns.
We all have habit patterns; we could not function without them. But sometimes the patterns we have created are not wanted or no longer serve us. By vibrating the sound current of “Sat Naam” in this manner, we can activate the energy of the mind that erases and establishes habits.
This meditation makes a good introduction to Kundalini Yoga, and will open the mind to a new experience. For more experienced practitioners, it can also help you to feel calm, relaxed, and mellow, and is also a good way to clear off the effects of a hurried day before beginning another deep meditation.
Posture: Sit in Easy Pose, with a light jalandhar bandh.
Mudra: Place the palms flat together at the center of the chest in Prayer Pose, with thumbs touching the center of the sternum.
Eyes: Focus at the Brow Point.
Breath and Mantra: Inhale deeply, concentrating on the breath. With the exhale, chant the mantra in the law of seven (the law of the tides). Vibrate Sat in six waves, and let Naam be the seventh.
On each wave, thread the sound through the chakras beginning at the base of the spine at the First Chakra.
On Naam, let the energy and sound radiate from the Seventh Chakra at the top of the head through the aura, unto Infinity.
As the sound penetrates each chakra, gently pull the physical area it corresponds to: The first center is the rectum; the second is the sex organs; the third is the Navel Point; the fourth is the heart; the fifth is the throat; the sixth is the Brow Point; and the seventh is the top of the head.
Continue for 11 – 31 minutes.
