Monthly Sadhana

A practice to help connect with the Guru
instructions by Swami Yogiraj Nanak on occasions Guru Purnima ‘02

1. Relax the body and mind by slow and deep breathing. The deep inhalation produces a mild tension. The exhalation drains out all tensions from the body. Once the body is relaxed, we relax the brain and mind in the same way.  The body and mind become completely languid and rested.

2. Place a picture of the Guru at a place slightly above the level of the eyes.
 Chant the holy Guru mantra silently while gazing at the picture. This recitation should be Non-vocal.
Chant in different speeds - slow, medium, and fast. Finally taper off  chanting to a very slow pace.

3. While reciting the Gurumantra allow the eyes to close gently.

4. In the quietude thus created, view the image of the Guru within yourself.
Feel His internal presence,  in the Gross (bodily) form ,  then in the Subtle, transparent form.
Go on to view in the Aura body.

5. Next distance  yourself and begin to  remove  ego from the self. This experience of Oneness with the “Guru Govind” should become easy and natural as the ego begins to  vanish . View the all encompassing presence of “Guru Govind” prevails.
This experience produces a novel tingling sensation. The aspirant  should be able to feel  the luminous wisdom and grace of the Guru fill every bit of ones life - big or small.

6. At the close of this Meditation, rotate the index finger in a spiral movement near the third eye, in the middle portion of the forehead.
Conclude by rubbing the palms together to generate energy and spread it evenly by moving the hands over every part of the body from head to toes.

7. Sit quietly and  feel the presence of the Guru’s Light from within and around.
Remain silent as you transition to your  daily  activity.
