This meditation is excerpted from the book “Dying into Life: The Yoga of Death, Loss and Transformation” by Dr. Jivan Joti Kaur Khalsa. It was originally taught by Yogi Bhajan on August 21, 1996.
This meditation strengthens the Radiant Body and Arcline to elevate consciousness.
Posture: Sit with a straight spine and apply Neck Lock.
Eyes: Lock the gaze down, beyond the tip of the nose.
Mudra: Cross the index and middle fingers. The Jupiter (index) finger represents positive expansive knowledge. The Saturn (middle) finger represents the lord of purity and discipline. The crossed fingers represent two things. First, that your knowledge is supported with the discipline to act on it and to keep it pure. Second, that these two linked energies cut your karmas. It is an ancient mudra of blessings. The other fingers are held onto the palms by the thumbs. Bring the hands up to shoulder height. Palms face forward.
Mantra : Aadays tisai aadays, Aad aneel naad naahat, Jug jug ayko vays
(I salute thee, the Primal One, timeless, pure, beyond form and boundaries, Age after Age You are One.)
Speak this mantra in a special way. Pull the Navel Point in rhythm with the words. Speak from the Navel Point with projective energy. Let the pull of the Navel Point move the tip of your tongue.
Time: 11 minutes.
Comments: This mantra strengthens the Radiant Body and Arcline to elevate consciousness. You are addressing the infinite, and the company of those who have elevated themselves to serve and heal. These words of Guru Nanak are a salutation to the Infinite—to the God beyond the Infinite God. If you master this Pauree (#28) from Japji, it elevates and opens your insight, giving you intuitive knowledge of your Self and the universe. It is the yogi’s humble obeisance to the Infinite in all. One repetition takes about 5 seconds.
Dying into Life: The Yoga of Death, Loss and Transformation: Second Edition – Coming Soon!
Death and loss are universal experiences, which we all experience in our lives. The experience of death and loss are never convenient, and everyone responds to them differently. For some, death is an ending, a tragedy, a wall of sorts; for others, it is a beginning, a door or an opportunity for tremendous personal growth and transformation. With training, we can prepare ourselves to view and respond to these transitions with more grace and inner serenity. We can also help others in their own transformative journey. Dying into Life book and course will give you such a training.
