Sit up straight, with the hands in Gyan Mudra. Inhale deeply and in a single breath chant:
SARE GA MA PA DHA NE
SA TA NA MA RA MA
This mantra is chanted as in a
normal major scale (DO RE MI FA… ) Begin with a low note to enable you to complete the nineteen components
of this mantra.
Inhale deeply and repeat. One cycle
takes about 15 seconds. This, Kriya
may be practiced for any legth of
time, the longer the better.
Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Da Ni Sa Ta Na Ma Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung
Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Da Ni Sa: musical scale
Sa Ta Na Ma: Birth, life, death, rebirth, the panj shabad or five primal sounds
Sa: Impersonal infinity
Sa Say: Totality of infinity
So: Personal sense of merger and identity
Hung: The infinite vibrating and real. (So hung: I am Thou)
This mantra is used in Kauri Kriya, a meditation in which the mantra is sung in ascending musical scales. It is great for rainsg the kundalini and activating healing energy.
Kauri Kriya is a first step towards raising your energy from the lower to the higher centers. It will take the apana (eliminative
energy) into the prana (generative energy) region, balancing
and aiding in properly channeling these energies. Eventually,
prana and apana will both end up in Saraswati, the lotus of one-thousand petals. This will turn the chakra upside-down so the nectar will run out of it. “By virtue of the Nam the nectar starts dripping in me.”
This Kriya will give rhythm and melody to all your utterances. Any prayer that is lacking in these two areas will not be answered
Contained in this Kriya are mantras of the earth SA RE GA PA DHA NE SA; mantras of the ether SA TA NA ~ and the Siri Gatri mantra RA MA DHA SA SA SE SO HUNG. In ancient times, this kriya was practiced by large groups sitting under a single dome in concentric circles. A single person would sit in the middle and lead the chanting. Besides the effects of balancing the inflow and flow of energy, this kriya will make the glandular system secrete totally in the same way that it does on the 11th day of the new moon (a time of lunar fasting where no food or liquid is taken to potentiate the secretory process of the glands).
