“When your mind is going berserk, apply a gutka. What is a gutka? It is a stopping lever. . . . It is a lever that can stop you and take the entire weight of the reverse balance. So whenever there is a reverse balance, if you apply the gutka, it will stop it. When the energy is in reverse and it is stopped, it will go to the positive and you’ll be good again. Isn’t that a simple way to fix yourself?”
1. Sit in Easy Pose with your spine straight. Use the thumb to lock down the Mercury finger (pinkie) and Sun fingers (ring). Raise the Saturn finger (middle) up at a diagonal and lower the Jupiter finger (index) down at an angle (like scissors). Stretch your arms straight out in from of you, parallel to the ground, with the palms facing down.
When the Saturn finger is higher and the Jupiter finger is lower and they are on a diagonal to each other, it is called Gutka Kriya.
Close your eyes and concentrate at the Third Eye Point. Begin a brisk continuous chanting of Ek Ong Kaar Sat Gur Prasaad, Sat Gur Prasaad Ek Ong Kaar. One complete recitation of the mantra takes about 4 seconds. Continue chanting for 11 minutes.
If you can stretch it tight, put the fingers straight, have the angle right, and concentrate at the Third Eye Point, you will start feeling something. Something will start happening right there. Don’t wait for tomorrow, feel it today. Now.
2. Then inhale, hold the position, stretch the arms, stretch the spine, and hold the breath as long as you can. Exhale (in class the breath was held for over 1 minute.) Then rapidly and powerfully inhale-and-exhale three times. Each inhale and exhale takes about three seconds.
3. Relax and put your hands in your lap. Put your attention at your Third Eye Point and be aware of what is going on there. 1 minute.
Referring to the Third Eye Point, the yogic scriptures say, “Kamal bigaase, sabh dookh naase (the moment the lotus turns around, all disease and pain go away).”
4. Keep your attention at the Third Eye Point and visualize a huge rectangular tank of water surrounded by a marble walkway. Imagine that there is a huge gate on the west side of the walkway. From this gate a bridge goes out to a holy temple in the middle of the tank of water. In the temple music is playing. Hear it and experience it. 2 minutes.
To end: Inhale deeply, exhale, relax, open your eyes, and bring yourself back to ordinary awareness.
