Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with the spine straight, and a firm Neck Lock.
Mudra: Interlace the fingers, keeping the Sun (Ring) fingers together pointing upwards. The right thumb is on top. Hold the hands several inches out from the diaphragm, allowing the Sun fingers to be pointing up at 60 degrees.
Eye Focus: Eyes are closed.
Breath & Mantra: Inhale deeply and powerfully chant the sound:
The sound is prolonged and continuous, and created by holding a strong Neck Lock, closing the back of the throat and using the head like a conch. The sound is vibrated through the central subtle nerve channel the Sushmana, accessed by vibrating the center of the nose.
When chanting in a group, each person should use her own breath rhythm.
Time: Unspecified. Suggested practice: 5 or more repetitions.
The power of this chant, when correctly done, must be experienced to be believed. Only 5 repetitions are necessary to totally elevate the consciousness. When you have a hard day to face, this meditation will give you absolutely powerful energy, and it will balance your most effective computer – the brain. The meditation can also be done when you are able to sleep afterwards. It is the best thing to do for “brain drain.”
