The Mind of a Soldier-Saint

To respond quickly and fearlessly, regardless of apparent size of the problem or opposition, the soldier-saint has a single-minded focus on duty and objective. The soldier-saint systematically eliminates everything that doesn't lead to the goal. Everything she or he does, or others do around them, must move toward the objective and not limit or hurt their position.

This meditation takes one beyond fear and lets the soldier act direct and true.

Posture: Sit with a straight spine. Relax the arms at the sides with the elbows against the ribs. The forearms are parallel

to the ground and angled outward to form a 60-degree angle between them.

Mudra: Hands are in closed Lotus Mudra, the fingers and thumb tips all touching and

pointing up.

Eyes: Eye focus is at the brow point.

Breath and Mantra: Inhale very deeply and fully. Exhale completely. Lock the breath

out. Pull the navel point in. Apply a firm Mul Bandh. As you hold the breath out, repeat

mentally in 16 beats:

Sa Ta Na Ma

Sa Ta Na Ma

Sa Ta Na Ma

Sa Ta Na Ma

Inhale again deeply, and exhale immediately. Repeat the sequence.

Time: Continue for 31 minutes.
