Meditation on Being a Yogi

Meditation: Meditation on Being a Yogi

  • Mantra: Ang Sang Wahe Guru
  • Posture:

    Sit in Easy Pose, chin in and chest out. Turn your tongue with the upper palate, so your tongue is folded over itself and the tip of the tongue faces the back of the throat. Close your mouth and lock your molars.

    Breathe consciously; inhale and exhale consciously.

  • Time: 11 to 31 minutes
  • Eyes: Focus at the tip of the nose
  • Teacher's Notes & More Information:

    See yourself as a great Yogi sitting on the top of a mountain, just visualize that. Keep your chin in and chest out, get ready for the introspection, and slowly and gradually start looking, where the tip of your nose is. The moment you press the back side of the upper palate, the thalamus will become alert; just as by fixing the eyes and giving tension to the optical nerve, you are creating a pressure on the pituitary directly. Listen to Ang Sang Wahe Guru as you practice this meditation.
