Extend the arms straight out in front of the body parallel to the ground. Bend at the elbows and draw the forearms in until the hands meet at heart level.

Deeply inhale and completely exhale as the mantra is chanted.

The eyes are 1/10 open.

Chant the following mantra in a monotone:

GOBINDA, GOBINDA, GOBINDA, GOBINDA, GOBINDA, GOBINDA, GOBINDA

Emphasize the second syllable of each “GOBINDA.” As you pronounce the syllable BIN, make a grin on your face. Then relax the face.

Strongly emphasize the last syllable (“DA”) of the last “GOBINDA.” -Pronounce the mantra properly at all times.

Lock the thumbs and maintain the lock throughout the meditation.

Focus on the mantra and be sure to pronounce each repetition properly.

Begin with 11 minutes and slowly build to 31 minutes.
