Meditation for Stress or Sudden Shock

Meditation: Meditation for Stress or Sudden Shock

  • Mantra: Ashtang Bij Mantra
  • Posture:

    Sit with the legs crossed in easy pose with a light jalandhar bandh (neck lock). Sit straight. Relax the arms down with the elbows bent. Draw the forearms in toward each other until the hands meet in front of the body about 1 inch above the navel. Point both palms up and rest the right hand in the palm of the left hand. Pull the thumbs toward the body and press the thumbtips together.


    Chant the mantra 3 times.  The entire mantra must be changed on only one breath.  Use the tip of the tongue to pronounce each word exactly, and chant in a monotone.  The rhythm must be exact.

  • Time: 11 to 31 Minutes
  • Eyes: Focus at the tip of the nose, through eyes 9/10th closed.
  • Teacher's Notes & More Information:

    This meditation balances the western hemisphere of the brain with the base of the eastern hemisphere. This enables the brain to maintain its eguilibrium under stress or the weight of a sudden shock. It also keeps the nerves from being shattered under those circumstances.
