    My neighbor and friend want to start the 40 day radiant body sadhana. I know it is over but we are wondering if you have each day recorded and stored somewhere and if so can we use them and where would we find them?

    Otherwise should we just go ahead and do 40 days of any videos we can find?

    Kind regards, Betty

    Ah, the radiant body! Much of the time we use the mantra’s for the radiant body (Shakti Mantras) to overcome depression and to gain self mastery because they are so effective so quickly.

    In this age the Radiant Body is what Max Factor, People Magazine, Lady Gaga and Coco Chanel are all missing….inner attraction!
    What is attractive in us is not our covers, our makeup or our dress or undress. What is attractive is the radiance that comes from within our being. Our absolutely RADIANT body
    is a shining armor all around us. This subtle shining armor protects us and attracts grace and opportunities. The strength of this armor relies on your using your prana and breath
    every day. Breathe absolutely consciously.precede Recite the words of this Shakti Mantra AJAI ALAI………… with precision and with a very focused breath. You will build this radiant body and it will surely precede you when you walk into any room or place anywhere and bring the “wow” factor to your presence…..in a very deep and subtle genuine way.

    alas it was very easy to find.

    Perfect 40 day…working on my commitment to my practice. Morning is best. It’s good in the evening when there are things to do…it’s pranic flow energizes the chakras, moving through the sushumna brings me great awareness. My heart is alive and mulbandh is clear, good for a new day or a walk with the moon. Darshan Jot in Calgary

    Wahe Guru! Thank you for so much you’re doing. This global sadhana is SO beautiful!
    I only received Day 1 email support but not Day 2 or Day 3, so I was wondering if we’re still getting a daily support in our mail boxes. Thank you!

  16. Jiwan Shakti

    Please can you provide rationale why we only balance on the left leg, and do not repeat on the other side. I am just curious. Sat Nam

  17. Trisha

    Can you recommend any modifications to the kriyas for pregnancy? I’m in my third tri, and am feeling these don’t feel just right to do right now.


  18. vilasini

    With the balance pose, do we repeat this on the other side?

  19. Julie

    Can anyone provide me with a written version of this kriya? I really want to do it but am having problems with the video! Many thanks, Julie

  20. jai satya kaur

    Ok – started it today with all of you – hope I can sustain it along with finishing nabhi kriya (have 12 more day so or so and So Purkh – have 30 left on that) Wanted to do something with everyone’s energy – having to improvise just a bit – using the wall for help on the left ft. balance since I hurt it this month – fell into a gopher hole….may have broken the outer bone – but it is healing slowly with ice, heat and YL oils….Sat Nam and hoe to read lots of interesting results from others as we go along these 40 days…

    Thank you kindly

    I`m very exciting to star to the Sadhana with you, but I have some question as:
    1. How many minutes do I need to do in each position?
    2. the tips of your fingers touch between them in meditation?
    3, Which is the focus of attention in meditation?
    Blessings !
