Charan Japa: Nourishing the Soul of the Unborn Child

The Practice

Instructions:

  1. One partner on the left, one partner on the right. Typically, the person on the right side represents the masculine polarity and the left side represents the feminine. This does not necessarily mean biologically male and female, but choose accordingly. Join hands.
  2. Walk together, and coordinate your steps. Chant Sat Nam together as you step your left feet forward, and Wahe Guru as you step with the right.
  3. Walk up to 3-5 miles per day.
  4. If you do not have a partner, practice in the same way outlined above, just alone. You could also walk with a family member or friend
Charan Japa: Nourishing the Soul of the Unborn Child

Charan Japa is a form of BreathwalkⓇ, which has been proven to reduce stress, improve health, and increase emotional control. BreathwalkⓇ is where conscious breathing, walking, and meditation come together. If you are in a wheelchair or otherwise physically unable to walk, you can move as you naturally would, bringing meditative awareness to your movement.

The idea is to walk side by side with your partner, establishing a rhythm and frequency between you. This creates a sense of trust and bonded consciousness, which, during pregnancy, is said to nurture the soul of the child.

According to the teachings of Kundalini Yoga, the soul enters the body on the 120th day of pregnancy. This time onward makes for a very impactful time to practice walking meditation such as Charan Japa. The idea is to walk side by side with your partner, establishing a rhythm and frequency between you. This creates a sense of trust and bonded consciousness, which is said to nurture the soul of the child.  If you do not have a partner, you can practice on your own or with a loved one.

This kriya is a walking meditation. The simple, age-old method is designed to create a rhythm and a frequency between partners. It is especially beneficial when a couple is expecting, as it increases one’s sensitivity and nurtures the soul of the child.

Charan Japa means “repeat with the feet,” and is a form of BreathwalkⓇ which integrates specific breath patterns and mantras with walking. The length and duration of this walk is a suggestion, and should be adjusted according to physical ability and what feels appropriate for you.
