MEDITATION FOR MENTAL FATIGUE

(Meditation as Medicine, Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa, p. 254)

Posture: Sit in Easy Pose or in a chair with your spine straight.

Focus: The eyes are closed and focused at the third-eye point.

Breath: The breath will come automatically as you chant.

Mantra: Ong (pronounced “Ooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng”). This is chanted monotone, with your mouth open, but the air flowing through your nose as you chant. The sound is far back and up in the soft palate.

Ong means the manifested creator — the primal vibration from which all creativity flows.

Mudra: Place your ring fingers together and interlace all the other fingers, right thumb on top of the left. Hold your hands several inches our from your diaphragm with the ring fingers pointed upward at a 60-degree angle.

Time: 3 minutes.

End: Inhale deeply, hold your breath for 10-20 seconds, exhale and relax.

Comments: This meditation should only be done when you can relax afterward. Done correctly, it is very effective against brain drain. It also imparts a balanced mental state and can give you absolutely powerful energy.
