Comments: Yogi Bhajan first taught this meditation on January 31, 1996.

Sat Nam Wahe Guru” is a Jupiter mantra. The most graceful power and knowledge come from Jupiter. Jupiter controls the medulla oblongata, the neurological center of the brain and the three rings of the brain stem.

When you are very tense, please do this and you will become calm, quiet, peaceful and tranquil. If you get a headache doing this exercise, it may mean that you have poor circulation. If you miss when you try to touch your fingers, it means you are not concentrating.

Yoga is a science of reality and an experiential proof of the sacredness of life.”
