Yogi Bhajan October 29, 1979, Los Angeles, CA
Sit in easy pose with a straight spine.
Press the hands on the breasts, palms in, fingers pointing toward each other. The hands are relaxed with the fingers extend and joined. This a comfortable position with very little pressure and no tension in the arms and hands.
Close the eyes nine-tenths of the way.
Deeply inhale for five seconds. Completely exhale for five seconds, and hold the breath out for 15 seconds.
Begin with 11 minutes and slowly build to 31 minutes. Comments:
This is a very simple and ancient meditation to resolve conflict in us. If you do it, you’ll enjoy it. Just see what changes you go through; just supervise yourself. It is a psychotherapy. The moment the body knows the breath is out it starts adjusting at the highest rate of efficiency. Work the automatics of your body. If you are really honest with your breath you are really honest.
The theory is that when the breath is out, and the prana is not there the pranic body starts penetrating through the other bodies to create the combination. Let the computer figure out how to make you survive with your cells which need x amount of oxygen. You may have a most grave situation to handle and five minutes of this will take care of it.
There is no mantra for this meditation.
