Cross-Heart Kirtan KriyaSit in Sukhasana (Easy Pose) with a straight spine. Close your eyes and then open them just a little bit. Stare at the tip of your nose. Meditating here will help still a noisy mind. Cross the forearms below the wrists, in front of the chest.
Work with the mantra Sa-Ta-Na-Ma.
Saa – Infinity
Begin to chant, Saa - taa - naa – maa as you play the fingers by touching the thumb tip to the fingertips in the following fashion:
Saa – touch the tip of the thumbs to the index fingers
Taa – touch the tip of the thumbs to the middle fingers
Naa – touch the tip of the thumbs to the ring fingers
Maa – touch the tip of the thumbs to the pinkie fingers
Continue for 11 minutes. To end, inhale, hold, close the eyes, and become completely still. Relax. The hemispheres will balance; a new sense of peace will ensue.
If you have a specific question or prayer that you need answered, you may wish to light a candle to help illuminate your answer.
