Mantra Meditation Instructions
Sit in Easy Pose (sukhasana) with your upper arms resting against your ribs, lightly in from the sides. The elbows are bent, and your forearms situated upward and slightly angled out from the upper arms. Your palms are flat, facing upward and pointed out from your body at a 45-degree angle, to form a 45% angle point the hands are over the legs toward the knees.
The fingers are together with the thumbs extended towards the side away from the fingers. Eyes are closed and centered at the third-eye chakra. The breath will come automatically as you chant. Inhale profoundly before you begin chanting.
This mantra should be sung in one complete exhalation. As you start chanting the first syllable „Sa”, your navel point is pulled in so that this syllable is abbreviated. You should rest for four beats between the first „Sa” and the second syllable „Sa.”
You should also pull your navel point in as you chant „Hung”. Hung should be vibrated at the root of the nose.
The rest of the syllables are drawn out in a strong, energetic chant. Aim to keep your chant at full volume (loud, but not raucous) throughout the mantra meditation.
Meditate for eleven minutes, increasing gradually to 31 minutes.
End meditation: Inhale profoundly, hold your breath and envision the person you want to send healing to (also, it can be yourself). Perceive that image in your mind very clear and see a glowing green light around the person.
Keeping that person in a mental plane, breathe out. Inhale profoundly, hold your breath and continue to mentally send the person healing green light. Still keeping that image in your mind and exhale.
For the last time, inhale profoundly, hold your breath and see the person very precisely, see the green healing light bathing the person, bathing and energizing every cell in the body. Exhale and relax.
