MEDITATION FOR THE SIXTH CHAKRA

(Meditation as Medicine, Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa, p. 249)

Posture: Sit in Easy Pose.

Focus: Look at the tip of your nose (the lotus tip).

Breath: Long, slow and deep breathing through the nose.

Mantra: There is no mantra.

Mudra: The hands are in Gyan Mudra with the pads of your index fingers touching the pads of your thumbs. The other three fingers are straight.

Time: 11 minutes.

Comments: It is said that by practicing this meditation between the hours of

4:00 am and 6:00 am local time, you will control the entire glandular system for

the next 24 hours. This means the glandular secretions will be released in

exactly the right amounts. As this occurs, the chemistry of your blood will change

for the better.
