Thunderbolt Of Shiva (Trishula Kriya)

This super-charged meditation can bring about powerful shifts in your physical and mental bodies. Shiva is one of the Hindu Trinity of Gods, and is known as the destroyer or regenerator.

This meditation balances the three gunas - the three qualities that exist in all of creation: rajas, tamas, and sattva. It also balances the nervous system and activates your bodies self-healing process. It is also said that this practice gives you the ability to heal with your touch, or even at a distance with your projection. This meditation may also be particularly helpful for restoring mental balance to those with psychological imbalances and phobias.

Yogi Bhajan recommended practicing this meditation in a cool room, or in the evening when the temperature outside is cooler because this practice directly stimulates the kundalini, generating a great deal of heat in the body.

Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine and a light Neck Lock.

Mudra: Bring your elbows to rest on your ribs, with your forearms extended slightly up, at a 10 degree angle above parallel. Your right hand rests gently in your left hand, palms facing up. The palm of your right hand lies along the lifeline of your left hand. Your thumbs stretch out to the sides. Your hands will form the shape of a trident. There is no bend in the wrists - the arms from the fingertips to your elbows form a straight line.

Eyes: Close your eyes. Look straight ahead at the back of your eyelids.


Inhale through your nose and pull back on your navel point. Suspend your breath for as long as you can while mentally chanting Har Har Wahe Guru until you need to exhale. Also, as you suspend your breath on the inhale, visualize your hands surrounded by white light.

Exhale through your nose and visualize lightning shooting out from your fingertips. When all of the breath is exhaled, suspend your breath out, pull mulbandh, and again mentally chant for as long as you can.

Continue for 11-62 minutes.


Har Har Wahe Guru


The Creator is bliss, Great is the Guru.

Chanting this mantra creates balance between the earth and ether, and eliminates subconscious blocks from the past.

Additional Information

Yogi Bhajan also taught a version of Trishula Kriya using electric blue light.

Yogi Tips

Create a long, slow, deep breath pattern. There is no need to struggle with the breath suspension. Hold it as long as you comfortably can. Your lung capacity will improve with this kriya!

This practice can be very intense. If you are new, you may choose to start with 11 minutes, and slowly work your way up to 31 minutes, or even 62 minutes. Give it a try and see how you feel. Trust your intuition to guide you to what is best for you at this time.

If you able to do the full 62 minutes, wonderful! Global Sadhanas are a fantastic time to push yourself beyond what you thought you were capable of! The energy we are creating with our practice elevates everyone else that is participating. Together, we are creating a very high vibration for the planet!
