will it do for you?
Kriya is fundamental to Kundalini Yoga, and should be practiced
daily for at least 3 minutes. Sat Kriya strengthens the entire
sexual system, stimulating its natural energy flow, relaxing sexuality
phobias, enabling control of the sexual impulse, and rechanneling
the energy to creative and healing activities.
maladjusted people benefit from this kriya, since mental problems
are a result of unbalanced energy in the lower 3 chakras. General
physical health is improved, and the heart is strengthened from
the rhythmic up/down of blood pressure.
to do it:
on the heels and stretch arms overhead, elbows hugging ears,
fingers interlocked, index fingers extended straight up,
and chant "Sat Nam" in a constant rhythm, about
8 times per 10 seconds. Chant Sat
from the navel & solar plexus, pulling the umbilicus
in to the spine, and on Nam
relax the belly.
for at least 3 minutes. Then inhale and squeeze the muscles
tightly from the buttocks all the way up the back, mentally
allowing energy to flow up the spine and out through the
top of the head. Ideally you should relax for twice the
time you practice.
this exercise stimulates and channels Kundalini energy,
it must always be practiced with the mantra "Sat Nam".
("Sat Nam" rhymes with "but Mom".)
may be built up to 31 minutes, but ALWAYS with a long, deep
relaxation immediately afterwards. A good way to build duration
is to start with 3 minutes and rest for 2 and continue in
this way for 25 minutes.
is not just an exercise - it is a kriya that works on all
levels of being, known and unknown.
not jump from 3 to 31 minutes, even if you are feeling strong
or are a yoga teacher. Respect the power of the technique,
and allow this kriya to properly prepare your body for higher
experience. You might block the more subtle experiences
of higher energies by pushing the physical body too much.
Or, you could have a huge rush of energy, an experience
of higher consciousness, but be unable to integrate it into
your psyche. So prepare yourself with constancy, patience
and moderation. The end result is assured.
you have not taken drugs, or have cleared your system of
all their effects, yo may choose to practice the kriya with
the palms open, pressing against each other. This releases
more energy, but is not generally taught in a public class
because someone may have weak nerves from drug abuse.
that you emphasize pulling the navel point in - don't try
to apply Mulbhand
(which occurs naturally when the navel is pulled). The hips
and spine do not flex, and the only motion is a slight up
and down of the chest and arms with each "Sat Nam".
is no specific breath for Sat Kriya - follow the instructions
for chanting and pulling the navel point, and let your body
find the right breath.
you have time for nothing else, practice this kriya daily
to keep the body a clean and vital temple of God!
