Mudra: Sitting in easy pose, bend your elbows down by the sides with a 30-degree angle made between the upper arm and forearm. With your forearms straight up, bring your hands in front of each shoulder with the palms facing forward. Ring and pinkie (Sun and Mercury) fingers held down by the thumb. Forefinger and middle finger (Jupiter and Saturn) pointing straight up and slightly crossed – stretch the index (Jupiter) finger slightly in front of the middle (Saturn) finger.
Eyes: Focus at the tip of the nose.
Mantra: Breath long and deep for a few minutes. Then chant in a low monotone: Aadays tisai aadays. Aad annel anaad anaahat jug jug ayko vays. Speak from the navel. Continuously recite this over and over, pumping from the navel on each word. Make sure the tip of the tongue strikes against the upper palate.
Time: Not more than 11 minutes.
Comments: This meditation can help break the cycle of cause and effect. The words are designated to create the touch of the tongue with the upper palate’s meridian points to stimulate the thalamus and hypothalamus and that controls the entire brain area. Its effect is long, and deep; slowly and gradually you will find that you are achieving stability. You will be jubilant, you will have a good posture, you will be well contained. It’s amazing how much it can help your mental strength.
