This practice opens the heart center and the feeling of the positive self. It is a gesture of happiness. It has a great history and is said to have been practiced by many wise spiritual people such as Buddha and Christ. The hand mudra (position of hands and fingers) became a symbol for blessing and prosperity.
Sit with your spine straight. Curl the ring and pinkie finger into the palm of each hand. Bend the thumbs over top of them to lock them into place. Keep the other two fingers straight. Bend your arms so that your elbows are by the sides, and the hands are by the shoulders with two fingers of each hand pointing straight up. Bring the forearms and hands forward to an angle of 30 degrees from the vertical position. Press the shoulders and elbows back firmly but comfortably. The palms face forward. Eyes closed and rolled up gently to focus on the brow point or Third Eye area, located at the top of the nose where the brows would meet. Steady, deep, slow and complete breathing.
Mentally pulse rhythmically from the brow point out into infinity the sounds:
SAA TAA NAA MAA
Saa is Infinity. Taa is Life. Naa is Death. Maa is Rebirth/Transformation.
This describes the cycle of life. This kriya brings a total mental balance to the psyche. This mantra means: “I meditate on Truth, Truth that I am.”
Try it for 40 days. During that time eat lightly and speak only truth directly from your heart. Practice it for 11 to 62 minutes.
To finish this meditation inhale deeply and exhale 3 times. Also open and close the fists several times. Relax.
