You are standing in the middle of a chaotic city-action. Around you are frantic people wearing virus-masks and in the distance you hear turmoil, explosions and ambulances. You pick up the basic nervosity of the zeitgeist.
Behind you is a house called “3HO” with entering and leaving yoga-students.
In front of you is an ancient building with the sign:
The Sodarshan Chakra Kriya School
You enter the entrance hall and hear those words:
On one wall you see a
Pedigree of Sodarshan Chakra Kriya
And on another a sign:
You see a very wide, slowly ascending corridor with panels on different rooms, stating:
Sodarshan Chakra Kriya
Meditation for focus and mental purification
Here is a meditation that makes use of prana to cleanse mental garbage and purify the mind. Of all the 20 types of yoga, including Kundalini yoga, this is the highest kriya. This is a very powerful meditation for prosperity. It will give you a new start. It is the simplest kriya, but at the same time the hardest. It cuts through all darkness and all barriers of the neurotic or psychotic nature. When a person is in a very bad state, techniques imposed form the outside will not work. The pressure has to be stimulated from within.
The tragedy of life is when the subconscious releases garbage into the conscious mind. This kriya invokes the Kundalini to give you the necessary vitality and intuition to combat the negative effects of the subconscious mind.
POSITION: Sit with a straight spine (either with legs crossed or sitting on a chair with feet flat on the ground)
Slight Neck-lock (head bent forward slightly)
Eyes are focused at the tip of the nose, or closed if you prefer.
MUDRA AND BREATH:
a) Block off the right nostril with the right thumb. Inhale slowly and deeply through the left nostril and hold the breath.
Mentally chant ‘Wahe Guru” 16 times, while pumping the navel point 3 times with each repetition (once on ”Waa”, once on ”hey”, and once on ”Guru”) for a total of 48 pumps.
b) Unblock the right nostril and use the right index or pinkie finger to block the left nostril. Exhale slowly and deeply through the right nostril. Continue, inhaling left nostril, exhaling right.
TO END: Inhale and hold 5-10 seconds. Exhale. Then stretch and shake the body for about 1 minute to circulate the energy.
TIME: Suggested length for this kriya is 31 or 62 minutes a day. The ideal is to start at 31 minutes, but you can begin with 11 minutes, then build up to 31, then 40, and eventually 62.
You are reading a placard, on which is written:
- There is no time, no place, no space, and no condition attached to this meditation.
Each garbage pit has its own time to clear. If you are going to clean your own garbage, you must estimate and clean it as fast as you can, or as slow as you want. You have to decide how much time you have to dean up your garbage pit.
COMMENTS: If you can do this meditation for 62 minutes to start with, then build up to the point where you can do it 2 1/2 hours a day (1/10 of the day), it will give you the following: ”Nao nidhi, athara sidhi,” which are the nine precious virtues and 18 occult powers. In these 27 total virtues of the world lies the entire universe.
When practiced for 2 1/2 hours every day, it will make you a perfect superhuman. It purifies the subconscious and takes care of the human life. It will make you extremely intuitive. It brings together all 27 facets of life and makes a human saintly, successful, and qualified. This meditation also gives one pranic power. This kriya never fails. It can give one inner happiness, and bring one to a state of ecstasy in life.
(as taught by Yogi Bhajan on December 1990)
You proceed to walk further through the building up to its backside and see a beautiful sanctuary-garden with a fountain from which a fresh breeze of air does bathe you.
In front of you a vast view of a beautiful long valley arises in which a society does thrive – lifely, yet not as frantic as in front of the house.
The stairs which did lead out of the college continue to build a majestetic ramp up to a pyramid-shaped mountain at the end of the valley.
At both sides of the valley, rock-formations rise, nearly as tall as the pyramid-mountain. You can’t see what is above the valley, but it seems that it is possible to view the life down here clearly in a heavenly peace.
Towards the right side it is possible to climb up the mountain, and in the other side of the valley, long ascending plateauts are hammered into the rock-formations, which also lead to the top.
Then you hear this speech in the garden:
At the very end of the valley, where the meditation goal is reached, you hear the sound of bliss:
For a while you continue to observe the lively action within the valley where climbers do fly with hang-gliders to the other side;
some let themselves glide down from the plateauts to the stairs, some rise up to them in teleferics;
and from the mountain top a clear river flows into the valley which does carry balanced people in gondolas.
You write an event into your calender for today in a year with the title: “SodarshanChakraKriya.com”.
By then you will know whether this kind of school is to your liking.
