Meditation - Guidance of the Soul

(The Master’s Touch, p. 38)

Posture: Sit in easy pose or in a chair with a straight spine with a light neck lock (Jalandhar Bandh). 

Focus: No position given.

Mantra: Tantric Har. One movement per second. Remain silent. 

Mudra: Touch the tip of the index finger to the tip of the thumb. The other three fingers should be kept straight, with the fingers spread apart as wide as possible. Secure the bent elbows firmly down into the sides of the ribcage. Place the hand mudra in front of each shoulder, palms facing forward. Tilt the forearms forward at a 45 degree angle from the shoulders. This is your starting position.

Movement: On each repetition of the mantra, Har, arc the hands from the position, up and back about 12 inches so they stop at a dead halt, next to each ear. The result will be a quick jerk of the body. The palms will continue to be facing forward. Then quickly resume the original position. Continue in a fast pace, keeping the fingers stiff and separated during the entire movement. Do it so powerfully that you feel yourself lifted with each rise of the hands, and then you feel yourself come back down with a jerk on your buttocks.

Time: 11 minutes.

End: Not specified. You may always inhale, suspend the breath for 5-10 seconds, then relax the posture and

breathe normally.

Comments: “Hari” represents the action and flow of “Har,” the creative aspect of Infinity.

This meditation is a Sacred Kundalini Yoga Kriya. It is called Guidance of the Soul. If perfected, that person shall have power over life and death — not only for himself or herself, but for all that exists. The exercise may become painful. The more you are in pain, the more you must push. A stage will come when there will be no pain. Learn to confront your pain, your calamity, and overcome it. Give power to yourself through the universe.

Make sure that the three fingers remain apart and stiff the entire time.
