SEXUALITY & SP TR TTUAL T T y ~
sexual energy is the nost powerful
form of energy kna.m to us. It creates
life!
In the Judeo-C1ristian tradition,
sexuality and spirituality are regarded
as polar opposites and sexuality is
seen as a stumbling block to spiritual
attaimnent.
Not so in Kundalini and Tantric
Yoga. Instead of contending wi.th,
repressing or defeating our procreative
instinct, we accept and rejoice in
our sexuality and are then able, thru
yoga exercise, pranayama and meditation
to harness and tra.nsIm.lte that ~ u l
energy for healing, rejuvenation,
longevity, spiritua.l developnent ,and
improving our human caliber.
1'We are rot to be celibate", says
Yogi Bhajan. In the 'art and science
of Kundalini yoga, sexuality is a
requisite for spirituality.
Kundalini Yoga was developed to
raise sexual energy to the higher
chakras, transforming it into spiritual
energy and preparing us for higher
levels of consciousness as well as
for a healthy, balanced, physical,
mental, atOtional and sexual life.
!hese, in turn, open up new possibil-
ities for sexual relationships. With
a vital body, and a soul-conscious
mind, 'He can attract and cultivate
meaningful relationships that vibrate
in higher frequencies of love, joy
and peace, and that are nore fun and
nore exciting than before.
'niE URGE ro MERGE
Tc:x:lay, many of us are experiencing
an urge to 11'erge wi.th God wi.thin,
and wi.th Q:ld in another person. 'Ihis
impulse to identify wi.th higher cons-
ciousness is part of a rapidly e"s:a.lat-
ing hLJInan evolution 'He are now partici-
pating in at the dawn of t.be New Age.
Not only is there a deep desire to
consciously connect wi.th mind, soul
and Universal Energy and to experience
"God in me", but there is a simultan-
eous urge to experience 1IGcd. in ~
in an intimate relationship.
NEW REIATICNSHIP POSSIBILITIES
!here is now abundant planetary
love energy to support each of us
going inside and finding our own purity
light, hannony and peace inplementing
the sharing of unconditional love
wi. th another human being wi.thout fear,
restriction or wi.thholding
0Jr attitudes towards relationships
are changing, not on!y J:::ecause 'He
feel the new possibilities "in the
air", but also because we realize
that finding and loving curselves is
the first step in finding and loving
a partner. !he basis for happiness,
security and peace in a relationship
is finding it wi.thin curselves. Having
\lIOrked on ourselves and grown, we
are then ready to share love wi. th
a partner.
New relationships go beyond need
fulfillment, ccmpanionship and sexual
gratification. No longer are we look-
ing for a ec:ok. or bread winner. We
are attracting partners in destiny,
rej oicing in the experience of being
male or female and sharing our yin or
yang energy wi. th a partner.
The new relationships include rrore
meaningful se.'rua1 rapport than simple
physical orgasm. !he 11'erging of t\110
souls in deep, joyeous, penetrating,
and radiant sexual pleasure, magnetiz-
ing their bodies and integrating human
and divine energies in pure love is
what 'He are seeking.
11
'lmLS FOR LOVE
Transcendent love in tantric unio-r.
is what we are looking for. To enjoy
this type of union, sane basic skills
and qualities are useful.
1. A healthy and attractive physical
enhances sexual union and ability.
With a strong nervous system we can
handle the increased energy. Both
men and wc:men need strong pelvic and
abdanin'3.l muscles for satisfaction
and endurance. A balanced and well-
functioning thyroid gland keeps us
attractive and slender, in addition
to regulating the function of all
the other glands. '!he pituitary and
pineal glands control physical growth
and developnent, and the associated
energy centers prcm::>te psychic growth
and developnent.
2. Activated and open energy centers
(chakras) enhance the unimpeded flow
of subtle, psychic energy. In addit-
ion to the lower chakras which 'We
must activate to generate and raise
sexual energy, the navel chakra must
be strong to join that energy with
higher energies. '!he opened heart
chakra amplifies the power of love,
attraction, ccmpassion and rejuvenation
allowing us to becane "super-humanly
human" as energy rises to the higher
centers.
3. 'Ihe ability to control and move
energy is one of the fruits of Kunda-
lini Yoga practice. To enjoy tantric
union, we must be in touch with our
subtle energy and able to manipulate
it at will.
4. A meditative mind is aware of and
able to rrove energy, and through med-
itation and focus we are able to per-
ceive the electromagnetic forces flow-
ing in and around our bodies.
5. Em:>tional balance sustains healthy,
satisfying and nurturing relationships.
A couple should make love only when
they are serene and clear. Upset,
worry and other negative m:x::ds are
imprinted on the aura and in the psyche
and can be transferred, causing depres-
sion and unhealthy mental states.
Stress drains energy and gr.-adually
wears down magnetic forces until the
initial strong attraction between
the partners disappears and "the chem-
iStry" isgdle. en the other hand,
self-esteem and the feeling of personal
fulfillment amplifies one's own and
one I s partner I s energy.
6. Spiritual balance, and an atm:::lsphere
of calm and peace enables partners
to feel and help IrOve each other I s
energy. IDv'e is shared and cultivated
in an atmosphere of joy, kindness,
canpassion, gentleness, respect
honesty.

THIS MANUAL
'!he techniques presented in this
manual produce the talents and qualit-
ies necessary for evolved human relat-
ionships. But they are equally impor-
tant for those of us not currently
engaged in such relationships, to
raise kundalini energy, elevate cons-
ciousness and attain evolved states of
awareness and being. '!hey are offered
in the spirit of love. Practice and
share them in that spirit.

TNTRODUCTTON TO KUNDALINT VOGA
as taught by Yogi Bhajan, Master of Hatha, Tantric & Kundalini Yoga
Kundalini Yoga is the science, art
and technology that enables one to ac-
cess and utilize his own creative en-
ergy for purposes in addition to repro-
duction. '!his power ( "shakti" ) is
thought to lie oormant in the l<::l'lNer
end of the spine and is often pictured
as a COiled, sleeping sP-rperlt ("kundal-
ini", meaning "coiled") until it is
awakened, spontaneously or by yogic
techniques and arises to unite with
universal energy ("prana") , empowering
an individual with consciousness expan-
ded beyond ordinary awareness and
perception, and powers ("siddhis")
beyond ordinary abilities. (See ''Bene-
fits of Kundalini yoga".)
Kundalini Yoga, as practiced
by Yogij i 's students, consists of
exercises or postures (Asanas) with
special breathing (Pranayama) , hand
and finger gestures (Mudras), bcx:1y
locks (Bhandas), chanting )
and meditation (see Canponents of
Kundalini Yoga - Appendix), together or
in sequence to create exact, specific
effects. This science has been studied
in the rronasteries of India and Tibet
for thousands of Years, and if we
practice it exactly as taught by the
master, we will achieve the powerful,
precise effects predicted. A kriya
is an exercise or group of them, with
one or rrore of the other canponents,
whose total impact is greater than
the sum of the parts. The sets taught
by Yogi Bhajan are kriyas, rather
than simply calesthenic series.
Kundalini Yoga is the rrost power-
ful and inclusive of There
are many other schools of yoga: Hatha
Yoqa, the best known school in the
in the West, is mainly, but not exclus-
ively physical. Raja Yoga claims
to be the highest Yoga (Raja means
"royal") but emits the physicaL
Mantra, Japa and Nad Yoga concentrate
on sound and meaning, Swara Yoga on
breathing, Bhakti Yoga on devotional
prayer and meditation, Karma Yoga
on and service, and Tantric Yoga
attains enlightenment through the
union and balance of male and female
energy, either in sexual intercourse
(Red Tantra or the Left Hand Path),
or in non-sexual union (White Tantra
or the right hand path, as taught
by Yogi Bhajan).
All yoga aims at the same goal -
union with the Universal, Divine Source
or GcxJ. It has been said that the
practice of Hatha Yoga leads to libera-
tion in 16 years, but that time can be
greatly reduced according to the dedi-
cation of the practitioner, by prac-
ticing Kundalini yoqa, (a a:xnbination
of raja and hatha yoga, according to
Yogi Bhajan.)
Kundalini Yoga is addictive1
Once the results are experienced.
we want IIOre! 'logi Bhaj an has taught
thousands of sets and medi tations,
(an embarassment of wealth, really, for
students with access to class notes),
an abundance covering every phase
of human and super-human experience,
(and attesting to the tireless dedica-
tion of Yogi Bhajan. nus material
can only be given by a master like
Yogi Bhajan.) Luckily the notes have
been preserved, fran his earliest
classes here in 1969, through the
later, video-taped material. We are
honored to be able to 1ranscribe and
prepare it for the general public
for the very first time.
Many of the kriyas are venerable
and ancient, having been passed down
by of rrouth from guru to initiated
chela (protege-student), and are there-
fore sacred and secret. Yogiji has
at last made them available to the
public, saying that knowledge belongs
to everyone!
Practicing Kundalini Ym at Home
cnce you try it, you probably won 't be
satisfied with just a weekly class
and will begin to practice at hone.
13
Optimum results are obtained by prac-
ticing 115adhana", early rrorning (4:00
ish) ~ hour exercise and meditation.
lwbst beginners -,.;ill not ccmnit to
practicing in the lIambrosial hoursII
until they discover its benefits.
A new student may simply wish to add
a Sunday session to his weekly class,
and build practice slowly fran there.
others may do it only when they have
the chance, and of course, sane will
do it every rrorning!
It is generally best to choose
and do the same set daily until it
is mastered (when the poses can be
held for the specified tines), but
it isnI t necessary to do a set for
40 days (as it is reccmnended for
meditations) sare sets, however ,
do specify 40 days in a row, and if
you are working on a particular talent
or problem, you may wish to do a set
daily, tmtil the desired effects are
achieved..
. Reccmnended Procedure
1) Wake Up Series (in bed).
2) Cold sha.er
3) Tune in with the Mi Mantra
4) Warm ups (see page 17 ) ani.t
those that appear in prop:::>sed set.
5) Perform chosen set
6) Relax a few m:xnents
7) Meditate
8) Grounding exercises (see page 18 )
If you wish to meditate later,
but haven I t time for a set, warm up
the spine first with spinal flexes,
and try one or rrore of the "Meditation
Facilitators
ll
A session can be as
long as 3 hours and as brief as 15
minutes.
Always practice at least 2 hours
after eating in a clean, quiet place,
with the hair pinned on top of the
head (in a "rishi knotII , or at least
confined) and feet bare for maximum
effectiveness. Like the yoga classes
you may be attending, at-heme yoga
practice should be approached with
reverence, dedication, resolve and
gratitude. (So, take the phone off
the hook and really slow down for
this precious time with yourself.)
After you establish regular at-
hone practice, try to attend regular or
occasional classes, too, for the group
energy and that passed frc::rn teacher
to students, as 'Nell as to keep the
~ l and tempo of the discipline. (To
locate local Kundalini Yoga classes, as
taught by the master, look up 113HO"
Healthy, Happy & Holy Organization) in
the nearest large town and call them
for information.
After each exercise, it is import-
ant to pause a rranent to observe its
effects and the altered flow of energy.
Each exercise generates its own spec-
ific effects, unlike calesthenics,
so relax and take a breath or two
before going on to the next one. An
important adj unct of Kundalini Yoga
practice is body awareness. If you
becane sensitive to your own body,
aligning the spine, and making neces-
sary adj ustments, knowing when to stop
or press on, feeling the urge to rrove
a certain way, you will multiply the
benefits and prevent possible inj uries.
(A teacher cannot see everything to
correct your errors, so you must rely
on your own sensitivity For example,
if the spine is misaligned and you
perform Plow Pose, you will not achieve
the benefits and you might aggravate
the problem, but if you nove it as
awareness indicates, you can also
adjust it). Close your eyes and visu-
alize the spine, and see if you can
make adj ustments to align it, especial-
ly before meditation. (see Relax
and Renew for sets to adj ust the spine
and neck.)
All of us carry physiCal tension
in various places, like shoulders,
groin or neck. Exercise or massage
can often alleviate that problem.
But if the intestines are in knots,
energy cannot pass fran the lower
chakras up the spine, and it is dif-
ficult to Perform or appreciate Root
I.Dck (Mulbhand) We can relax the
intestines by simply corcmanding them
to relax, in a kind and gentle marmer
with the eyes closed and the breathing
slowed down.
14
Many of us find it alroost impos-
sible to relax the heart, which can
be constricted by negativity, self-
hate and fear (see Transitions to
a Heart-centered World) and this muscle
can also be relaxed by a simple, kind
camand, allOWing energy to flow to
the higher centers. If you exper-
ience these problems, take a nanent
or two for internal relaxation before
yoga practice, and learn to "tune in"
to your body rrore often.
If you simply cannot perform
an exercise as given, after doing
your best, it is helpful to visualize
doing it, which benefits
the body almost as much as the act
itself, and also facilitates actually
doding the exercise. COncentration
on a mantra or the breath can make
holding a pose easier. Flexibility
can be attained slowly, by holding
the ends of a towel looped Oller the
feet in forward bends. Q:)n 't force
anything. Everyone was a beginner
once, and with consistent' practice
improvement will be much faster than
imagined.
t-bst beginning students find
it easier to pull Mulbhand during
inhale, but with practice it can be
done with the breath held out or in.
Some of us find that attention (on
the Crown Olakra, for example) or
projection, or raised energy can be
held only on the inhale. But with
practic'2!, you can pull it up (or pro-
j ect it out) and keep it there, and
infact, therein lies the magic of
Kundalini Yoga! loDst of us have dif-
iculty gazing at the nose while prO-
j ecting out of the Brow Point. Prac-

Raising Kundalini
Central to the practice of Kundalini
Yoga is the raising of
'I11is can be done, quite simply by
practicing the kundalini sets, in
of the legendary difficulty
in doing it. 'I11e trick is in keeping
it up. In the Fast there is so much
tradition about the phenanenon that
we 'NOnder why neither Jesus Olrist,
Gautama Buddha nor M::>harrmed ever men-
tioned it. It has been postulated
(by Bhagwan Rhajneesh - see Meditation
the Art of Ecstasy) that when the
central channel is clear, the ascent
of Kundalini energy is imperceptible,
and it is only in piercing through
blocked chakras (subtle energy centers)
along the spine - see Appendix) that
it is felt.
A few people have spontaneous Kundal-
ini arousals that sanetimes result
in trauma, and even psycho/physical
inj ury and or mental disturbance,
(which explains why Kundalini Yoga
is considered a dangerous practice
by sane uninformed individuals). Such
traumatic, spontaneous Kundalini arous-
als occur arrong the practitioners
of 'IM and other disciplines that try
to raise psychic energy, without pre-
paring the physical body which results
in high voltage blow out. 'nUs never
happens to those who practice Kundalini
Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, because
the body and nervous systewm are pre':'
pared for this potent energy. This
regular practice not only raises Kunda-
lini energy safely, it keeps it up
for life on a higher plane (see "Bene-
fits of Kundalini Yoga").
We have been told by female yogis
that raising Kundalini is very muCh
like experienci ng orgasm. (Men,
unfortunately, have no such reference.)
Apparently it is unique for each person
(like an orgasm or an LSD trip).
some experience it as heat along the
spine, and others see it as brilliant
light. It is described as spiralling
up the spine by sane, and as shooting
straight up the spine by others.
Whatever the individual perception,
it is definitely a pleasant, delightful
and euphoric sensation, often attended
by extraordinary phenerrona, and leading
to raised consciousness.

The following are exerpts frem
lectures and conversations by Yogi
Bhajan in 1969, borrowed fran Kundalini
Medi tation Manual.
"I have recognized, by the bless-
ing of my Master, that it is possible
to be Healthy, to be Happy and to
be Holy while living in this society.
But you must have energy so that your
dead computer rray live and pass on
the signal to you, and canpute all
that you want to do in this society.
We call this energy, in the olden
science, Kundalini (which has been
blocked in the Muladhara, the lowest
of' all chakras or lotuses). '!hough
these are all imaginary things, there
is a way of setting our computers
to be in direct contact with Him,
the biggest canputer, and all things
must then \VOrk autanatically. '!hat
cannot \VOrk until the Kundalini (the
spiritual nerve) breaks through the
blockage and travels up to the stage
of Superconsciousness in consciousness.
\Vhen the Soui is (thus) awakened,
this vehicle of yours will be chauffer-
ed by the soul instead of the negative
ego and you will have found Gocl in you.
You must generate the pressure
of Prana (spiritual, life-force energy)
and mix it with Apana (eliminating
energy), and when the two join, you
get heat in the Pramc center (at
the 8th vertibra). With this heat,
you put pressure (or a charge) on
the Soul Nerve, or Kundalini, which
is coiled in ~ circles on Muladhara,
and this will awaken it so that it
rray pierce through the chakras and
pass through Jalandhara Bhanda (Neck
!Dek), the final blockage in the spine
before the energy reaches the head.
Prana is the life force of the
atan, and Apana is the eliminating
force. When these t\VO forces, positive
and negative, are joined the pressure
brings Kundalini up the central nerve
channel, Sushurrana, and when it reaches
the higher chakras, man can look into
his future, his psychic power is activ-
ated, he knows the totality of his sur-
roundings, and he is a blessed being.
Under the 8th vertibra, there
is a cavity called the "Pranic center"
Where prana is s ~ o r e d Yogis create
pranic energy reservoirs in that cavity
and live on the reserve. ALL IT IS
IS CREATING PRANA (THRCUGH DEEP BREATH-
ING IN THE CAVITY AND MIXING IT WITH
APANA (THROOGH MULABHANDA), AND TAKING
IT r:x:::MN, PO'ITING PRESSURE CN KUNDALINI,
CAUSING IT ro RISE. THAT'S IT! After
one inhales prana deep down to the
navel point, and pulls apana up to
the navel point (with Root Lock) prana
and apana mix at the navel (Nabhi)
chakra at the 4th vertibra. Heat is
felt during Kundalini awakening. That
heat is the filament of the Sushumana
being Iit by the joining of prana and
apana. Energy leaves t.i-J.e navel and
goes to the rectum and then it rises.
There are six IlOre chakras through
which Kundalini must rise and it will
happen all at once. Once you have
raised it, thehardest job is to keep it
up &keep the channels clean and clear.
Fran the rectum to the vocal
cord is known as the Silver Cord.
FRan the neck. to the top of the head
is the passage. Fran the 3rd Eye
(between the brows) to the Pineal
Gland (Crown Olakra) is the Golden Cord
To make energy rise through these cords
and passages, you apply hydraulic locks
just as YOU do to bring oil out of the
ground. Mulabhanda (Root Lock) brings
Apana up to the navel at the 4th verti-
bra, the central seat of Kundalini.
Uddiyana Bhanda (Diaphragm Lock) takes
it up to the neck and Jalandhara Bhanda
(Neck !Dek) takes it up the rest of
the way. '!he Pineal Gland (seat of the
Soul) does not work when the 1Oth Gate
(Crown Olakra) is sealed. But the Pin-
eal Gland will secrete when Kundalini
Heat comes and your Pituitary will act
as radar, keeping the mind fran nega-
tivity Kundalini is known as the Soul
Nerve. Your Soul is to be awakened!
Is it difficult? '!here I s no
secret. In 20-30 days of honest prac-
tice you can do it.
CAUTICN: You are playing with
energy that is the life force of the
atan! But with proper preparation
(tuning in, warming up) and following
directions carefully, AND ALWAYS APPLY-
ING NECK LCX:K (neck perfectly straight)
there is no danger."
16
TUNING IN
'lUaNG IN
Before begiMing Kundalini Yoc;a prac-
tice, always "tune in" by chanting
the ADI MANTRA as follows:
Sit in meditation posture with a
straight spine and center' yourself
....i th long, deep breathing. Then
place the palms together in Prayer
Mudra at the Heart Center, fingers
pointed up at 60

The effects of the sets and medita-
tions is er.hanc:ed by thoroughly 1olaJ:m-
ing up the spine and stretching before
practice (see following rage).
IlJRING EACI
During each exercise, focus at the
3rd eye (b:'O'.l) point unless otherwise
specified, without blocking out other
(breath, posture, etc.)

Unless otherwise directed, inhale,
and hold the breath (still Iraint:aini.ng
the posture) and apply "Mul Bha.t'l4"
( root lock - see apperrlix) either
with the breath held in or out.

Relax a m::ment afterwards, and go deep
within to observe the effects of each
exercise (making each exercise a
mini.-med:i tation)
PRCX:ElJRE
If yeu are unable to Co the exercise
for the specified time, cut them
all proportionately (ie. in half) and
then repeat the set if tlOssible.
Always follO\ol directions as precisely
as possible. Neither anit nor add
an exercise, and Con't skip around,
but Co them in order, without inter-
uption for maximum benefits.

Conclude each set with adequate relax-
ation follo-oed by "grounding exer-
cises" (see "Concluding a set").

a::Mon!Nl'S: In our culture, 'Ne are taught to vie1!7 sex in teJ:mS of pleasure
and reproducticn. we aren't educated in the need for Jl'Clderation in sex in
order to maintain health and nerve balance. sexual experience in c:orrect
consciousness can give you the experience of God and bliss, but before that
can cx:cur, you must charge ycNr sexual batteries and possess a real potency.
SEminal fluids, male and female, CCI'1tain high c:ax:entratioos of minerals
and elements crucial to proper nerve balance and brain functicn. '!he sexual
fluid is reabsorbed by the body if it is allowed mature. Its essence, or
"Ojas" is transported into the spinal fluid. Running ycNr mind with ojas
is like rumi.nq a car without oil - you wear it out quickly. About 90' of
"your sexual energy is used to repair and rejuvenate the organs of the body.
!be normal span of potency for a yogi is equal to the length of his life.
In the United States, potency wanes even in the early forties. 'Ihis kriya
generates sexual energy and transmutes it into ojas and healing force.
SEXUALITY: There is energy in you and you
have to channel it. Highly energetic (in
games, sports) people are not very sexually
desirous. Inactive people are more sexually
oriented, a release for the energy.

c:x::MMENI'S: '!he ancient understanding of manIS 1X>tential was that power was
in his seed or bindu. If a man could prcrluce a conscious 1X>tency in the
bindu and his organs could creatE: enough semen and bindu to reabsorb the
bindu as constituants of the blood, then \\OTIaIl was a willing servant to
that man. (Ancient kings in the rnatriarchial traditions were de1X>sed
or slain when they became impotent.) Besides, with this power, a man
could decide to have a roy or girl child. (If the sperm penetrates the
ovum deeply, itis a boy; otherwise itis a girl.)
'!his is a powerful ability to develop. A woman is no:rmally 16 times
nore powerful than a man, but in her wisdcm, she plays weak. In the same
way she creates a man in her wanb, she creates a man in her astral body.
To restore proper balance, the man must realize he is part of Infinity.
Tkhen a ~ will \IIOrship him and create him to be great.
'!his exercise will develop and circulate the bindu to every 1X>re.
If a man practices fran the time he is 13 years old, he controls binduI s
strength. If you are serious about this practice, begin rroderately doing
itevery day, and b.1i.ld up to 31 minutes on each side for 40 days.

KUNDALINI
Whenever there is a manifest-
ation of what is ordinarily
called supernatural power or
wisdom, a little current of
Kundalini must have found its
way into the Sushumna. When-
ever there is divinity in you,
the Kundalini Power must have
touched the central nerve.
Only, in the vast majority of
such cases, people have ignor-
antly stumbled on some prac-
tice which set free a minute
portion of the coiled up Kun-
dalini. All worship, cons-
cious or unconscious, leads to
this end. '!he man who thinks
he is receiving a response to
his prayer, does not know that
the fulfillment comes from his
own nature, that he has suc-
ceeded by the mental attitude
of prayer, in awakening a
bitof Infinite Power which is
coiled up within himself.

low back pain. 'Ibis kriya is helpful

cn1MENl'S: '!be body is a temple of human expression and evolvement. We are
often told by the media and friends that itwears out, has many illnessness

and is extremely fragile. But that is not true. '!he body is sensitive and
self-repairing. As Yogi Bhajan puts it:
"'!his beautiful body cannot be eaten by anything except your own

ego. -God doesnIt kill you. '!bere is no death except your own
ego and your own negativity. '!hat reduces the voltage of your
life force so your circumvent field becanes weak and death creaps
into your body. '!his body is beautiful! It was made by a very
special imagination of the Creator."
VE are creators also, and have some ability to create the environments we

want to live in. We create our bodies with each thought and activity, as
well as with each meal. So we must clean the body and readjust the flow
of energy periodically since we are all products of our habits, and since
few of us are without ego.
I
This kriya, which is a variation of the standard Frog Pose is very powerful.
I
You must keep the chin locked in. Itreadjusts the sex energy and the balance
of prana and apana. Itis gcod for digestion and circulation to the head.
Ifdone with powerful breathing, itwill make you quickly sweat.

PRANAYAMA FOR CONTROL OF METABOLISM
People who cannot control their eating have no
control over' their metabolism. It is a problem
in the Eastern Hemisphere of the brain, which res-
ults in lack of endurance, effectiveness, and self-
respect. To . correct the problem, breathe long
and deep through the left nostril for 31 minutes
a day for 90 days. Once you can control this,
you can control anything.

september 20, 1971 &october 19, 1971
'!be radiance and beauty of a person depends on the clarity and
glitter of his circumvent force field which in depends on the balance
of energy in the left (M:on) and right (Sun) sides of the body. '!be first
pranayam creates this balance and allows the mind to rid itself of doubts.
'!be mind has many stages and states, constantly gnerating the waves of
thought needed to relate to this world. Nonnally meditations are taught
to restrict the flow of thought. But you cannot stop thought production,
you can only alter your relation to them selectively. Most meditations
lead you to a state of suspension or the state of void. Few even teach
you to reach the state of pratyahara. To focus the mindI s meditation
to this state (pratyahara) is the job of the 2nd pranayam.
1. In Easy Pose with an erect spine,
eyes wide open and gazing straight
ahead,. axms straight, hands on knees
in Guyan Mudra, inhale constantly
for 5 seconds, hold the breath for
10 seconds, and exhale constantly
for 5 seconds and continue this rhythme
for 10-1 5 minutes, gradually increasing
inhalation time to 10 seconds, holding
to 15 seconds, and exhaling to 10
seconds. Meditate on the inflow and
outflow of breath, the divine spark
of life.
2. In Easy Pose with a streaight spine, .
focus attention at the Brow Point,
and using right index finger, alter-
nately open and close the nostrils
in the following sequence: Inhale
deeply through the left nostril, hold
45 seconds, exhale through the right
nostril in 4 equal parts or strokes.
Continue this rhythm for 3-4 minutes
and then increase the exhale to 8
equal strtokes and continue for 10
. minutes.

(The Sermon on 2 Cushions, Part 1)
MEN & WOMEN: Women a
opposite from men - they
ing in common. It is o n ~ y the
mysterious thing called love which
rings them together. We cannot
know what is going on inside the
other's head. Admit that you do not
know what the other's world is
like - just agree that you have
he right to be you and he/she
has the right to be"'himlher
WOMEN: Men .do not understand woman, what
affects her (the Moon chanqes). Men want
women who do nbt fluctuate. But a woman
's not a woman if she ~ s not fluctuate
June 23, 19.72
WOMEN & MEN: Man is born of woman and you cannot
deny that. However much you. get it together in
life, you owe it to that woman who carried you and
made your body for 9 months and who taught you in
the first 3 years the very basic things of walking
on this earth and talking. So, all desires, enter-
prizes and goals are focussed on woman. You have
sprouted from a womb, one half of you (the lef
side) is polarized female and you seek fulfillment
in sprouting again in a woman. If you can, you
will find your way into every womb on earth. You
learn about yourself through being hurt by a woman
The thing to do is to respect every woman and
try to increase her grace

,TENUS KRIYAS
]:.. Venus Kriya is an exercise
done by a couple - ideally a
male and a female, (but it
may also be done by 2 wanen or
two men). "Kriya" means can-
pleted action, and ''Venus''
refers to the Rcman goddess
of love and beauty.
A Venus Kriya scientifically
and precisely canbines male
and female p:::>lari ties with
asanas, mudras, mantras ,
pranayam and meditation to
generate a strong psycho-
magnetic field, through which
energy is drawn in and direc-
ted p:::>sitively towards subconscious cleansing and the raising of conscious-
ness, through the chakras to higher, di.vine consciousness.
'Ihese kriyas were originally taught for as long as 31 minutes each, in
the early 70's, and have not been taught by Yogi Bhajan since then. How-
ever, in the 80' s , a time lindt of 3 minutes each was set, and must still
be abided by.
Venus Kriyas are similar to Tantric Yoga except that while White Tantric
yOga can be practiced only in the presence of the Mahan Tantric, Yogi
Bhajan, the Venus Kriyas can be done without his supervision if specific
guidelines are followed. They are extremely powerful. It is, therefore,
important to follow the guidelines given below.
1. No Venus Kriya may be done for longer than 3 minutes.
2. A kundalini yogci set should be done in preparation.
3. They should be done in the proper environment, in a quiet, inspiring
and relaxed place, with incense (optional), and in conjunction with yoga
and meditation.
Begi:nning Steps
1. Sitting opposite your partner, tune in with the Adi Mantra (see "Tuninq
In", page16 ), 0 n g N a. m 0 G"U. r 1...l. De"," N a. m 0 _

2. Then, for divine protection, chant the Guru Gaitri Mantra 3 times:

(I bow to the Primal Q.lru)
(I bow to the Guru of the ages)
(I bow to the true Q.lru)
(I bow to the great, invisable Guru)
3. Hands still in Prayer Mudra, look into the eyes of your partner and
bow your head in recognition of the God-consciousness in him or her, pro-
jecting love, divine light, loving thoughts and/or positive affirmations.
'!hen proceed with the Venus Kriya of your choice.
Steps
1. End each Venus Kriya by stretching the anns up and twisting frcm side

Balance &
'!hi s is an excellent daily practice for couples to renove EiltCtional blocks
and balance their energies. It is also done individually when you are
working al your 0'Nn issues. It is the meditation for w:men to clear out
the psychic effects of past relationships.
Sit back to back with your partner,
spines straight and aligned with each
ot.l}er, and meditate at the Brow Point,
chanting the 5 primal sounds of the
Panj Shabad

("Sa" Infinity, COsrtOs, beginning, "Ta"

For the first 5 minutes, chant in

next 5 minutes whisper again, and
for the last 5 minutes return to the
normal voice. Meditate on these primal
sounds in an "L" shape: let each "Sa

Cdhakra and project itout to Infinity
through the 3rd Eye.
.
CD1MENl'S: All meditation stops at "Sa Ta Na Ma" - there is nothing beyond
it. Kirtan Kriya is the most important meditation in Kundalini Yoga.
If you oould do only one meditation, this is it! It does everything for
you and in the proper order. Over a period of time it can be your best
friend. Each time you close a mudra by joining the with a finger,
your ego "seals" its effect in your oonsciousness: Guyan Mudra with thumb
and index finqer effects knc:l'Nledge, Shuni Mudra (middle, Saturn finger
and thumb) gives wisdan, patience and discipline, SUrya Mudra (rinq, Slm
finger & thumb) imports vitality and energy, and Bhuddi Mudra (little,
Mercury finger and thumb) gives the ability to camnmicate. Itis import-
ant to do this meditation properly, using the ''L'' fonn so that the sound
follows the "Golden Cord" entering at the 1Oth Gate (top of the head),
and projects out through the 3rd Eye to Infinity. As always, the spine
must be straight and the Olin Wck must be applied.

MEDITATION TN
Meditation in conjunction with the
practice of Kundalini yoga is the
most powerful, safe and effective
means of achieving altered states
of consciousness. The practice of
Kundalini yoga strengthens the nervous
system and the entire physical, mental
and emotional being to receive and
utilize the higher frequencies induced
by rreditation. Therefore, practition-
ers of Yogi Bhaj an's technology do
no experience destructive, traumatic,
spontaneous Kundalini arousals, camon
among those who practice other types
of meditation and yogic traditions.
Instead, they experience the gradual,
repeated, safe and alnost imperceptabJe
ascent of Kundalini energy, with
its attendant pleasures and talents
and without the traditional fireworks
and pain.
The Kundalini Yoga/Meditation canbin-
ation brings the meditative mind
into everyday life and elevates day
to day living to a higher plateau.
Yoga without meditation is like cake
without frosting, and meditation
without yoga practice is like the
dessert without the dinner.
These meditations are actually pre-
meditations. Each focuses conscious-
ness to implement specific effects
through the mantras and mudras.
The real meditation begins AFI'ER the
chanting is done. (So be sure to
savour those precious post-chanting
rnanents' to enjoy a conversation with
God or your higher self, or to use
the heightened awareness to survey
the. 00dy and take stock of its needs.)
Most of all, this is the time to
listen and know.
Mantras are the repeated words, sounds
ot' phrases in one of the sacred lang-
KUNDALTNT VOGA
uages (sanscrit or Gurmuki - so desig-
nated because in these languages
the sound of the word vibrationally
approximates the concept it repres-
ents) . Yogi Bhaj an has given us
several mantras in English, too.
Though affirmations have a powerful
effect on the mind, taking one from
a negative to a positive mind-set,
mantras take you from the polarities
of the positive-negative mind to
the Universal, neutral mind, and
link the finite self with the Infinite
self.
Prayer is another powerful tool,
but it is usually a one-way affair,
(asking for blessings, or thanking
or praising God for those already
bestowed) . Olanting mantras opens
up a two-way ccmnunication, tuning
us into cosmic frequencies I enabling
us to listen and receive, as well
as press our cause.
The sounds of mantras affect the
cosmic spheres as well as individual
consciousness. '!he meaning, (though
unintelligible to the Western cons-
cious mind), has a powerful impact
on the subconscious mind. '!he touch
of the tongue on the palate, addition-
ally, reflexes to impact the brain
in a scientific and precise manner ,
when the mantras are correctly chant-
ed. Repeated repetition makes the
effect "kick in" despite blocks and
scepticism, too. Lastly, the music
that often accanpani.es the chanting,
touches the heart and opens one's
sensitivities. '!his is called "Nad
yoga" or "the yoga of the mind".
It is of paranount importance to
chant a mantra correctly. To enjoy
its full effect, ask your teacher
for the correct pronounciation, rhythm
and the prescribed breathing, melody

and meaning.
Two ways to empower mantras are (1)
to visualize the mantra written on
a screen before the closed eyes as
it is intoned, and (2) to listen
to the mantra while inhaling bet'tNeeIl
repetitions. You may also feel the
mantra - pulsated at the heart, vibra-
ing in the head, circling up the
spine, or penetrating the body down
to the cellular level.
During the course of chanting, take
your time. Attend to one thing at
a time - if visualizations are spec-
ified, first set the breathing and
chanting on "autanatic pilot". '!hen
add pictures, movements ot energy
or pulsations. After a little prac-
tice you will find it is possible
to hold several things in the mind
at once, and this will be useful
in all phases of life.
MmI'rAT:IK; AT IDE
1. First, "tune in" (with the Adi.
Shakti Mantra: CNG NM-D, GURU DEV NM-D)
'!hen do warmups, especially spinal
flexes. Fbllow with a Yoga set of
your choice. '!hen relax a few minutes
on the back before meditating.
2. Sit in a clean, quiet place.
Meditating at the same time and in
the same place everyday, gradually
sanctifies the area. But if you
are meditating in a subway, or stand-
ing in line, imagine a sanctified
place and program yourself to tune
out distractions. Nature offers
gc:x:rl settings like under a tree,
beside a .stream or the ocean, and
churches are ideal retreats.
3. '!he very best time to meditate
is in the early rrorning before sunrise
as yogis do. (sadhana! ) 2'; hours
before sunrise is the usual time
to begin - the "primal hours". Other
powerful times are at 4:00 P.M. and
at sunset. Bedtime is a must! Medit-
ation and yoga actually replace sleep,
so you will find you need less sleep
when you do a norning and evening
routine (which processes the subcon-
scious fears and concerns of unsettl-
ing sunrise dreams).
4. A timer of sane sort is useful
to avoid "clock watching", and or
wondering.
5. '!he hair should be worn up, in
a knot on top of the head (to prevent
energy , leakage' ) , and you should
be seated on a natural surface -
ie. wool, cotton, '!he feet
should be bare.
6. You may wish to begin with short
meditations (sane are as short as
3-5 minutes in this I:x:x:>k) and proceed
to longer ones with Practice. It
is recarmended to practice one medi ta-
tion daily for 40 days to achieve
its effects. 90 days can break a
habit pattern. If you like variety,
sample a different one every evening,
perhaps, but stick to the same one
every norning for at least 40 days.
7. M:>st of Yogi Bhajan's meditations
are designed to attract or deliver
specific results. You can program
yourself with Prayer or visualization
of the desired results, before and
after the meditation, consolidating
the entire effect. But, during the
meditation, concentrate on the speci-
fied techniques and absorb yourself
in the sound and the energy.
8. What you may encounter: Because
of a misconception that one can simply
sit down and quiet the mind for med-
i tation, many people are discouraged
fran meditating. '!he mind generates
one thousand thoughts per wink of
the eye, and when we sit to meditate,
we becane acutely aware of these
thoughts. '!bat is why we use mantras

telephone number? A combination of

SAT
STIMULATING
Sit on the heels and stretch arms overhead, ..lS hugging ears, fingers
interlocked, index fingers extended straight up md ch.:mt "sat Nam" in a
constant rhythm about 8 times per 10 seconds. Olant S a. t frcm the navel &
solar plexus, pulling the umbilicus in to the spine, and on N am relax the
belly. Continue for at least 3 minutes. 'n1en inhale and squeeze the muscles
tightly from t.he buttocks all the way up- the back, mentally allowing energy to
flow up the spine and out through the top of the head. Ideally you should
relax for twice the time you practice. ("sat Nam" rhymes with "but M:xn".)
m1MENI'S: sat Kriya is fundamental to Kundalini
Yoga and should be practiced daily for at least 3
minutes. sat Kriya strengthens the entire sexual
system, stimulating its natural energy flow, relax-
ing sexuality phobias, enabling control of the sex-
ual impulse and recharmeling the energy to creative
and healing activities. severely malajusted people
benefit frcm this kriya since mental problems are
a result 'of unbalsanced energy in the lower 3
chakras. General physical health is improved
and the heart is strcmgthened frcm the rhythmic
up/down of blood pressure. Since this exercise
stimulates and channels Kundalini energy, it must
always be practiccYi with the rna:t:ltra "sat Narn".
Time may built to 31 minutes but always
with long, deep relaxation immediately afterwards
A good way to build duration is to start with 3
minutes and rest for 2 and continue for 25 minutes.
(D:> not jump frcm 3 to 31 minutes, even if you are
feeling strong or are a yoga teacher. Respect
the power of the technique and allow this kriya to
properly prepare your body for higher experience.)
'n1is is not just an exercise - it is kriya t.l1at
\YOrks on all levels of being, knor.m and unknown.
You might block the more subtle experiences of
higher energies by pushing the physical body too
much. Or, you could have a huge rush of energy,
an experience of higher consciousness, but be un-
able to integrate it into your psyche.) SO prepare
yourself with constancy, patience and moderation.
'n1e end result is assured.
If you have not taken drugs or have cleared your system of all their
effects, you may choose to practice the kriya with the palms open, pressing
against each other. 'n1e releases more energy but is not generally taught
in a public class because someone may have week nerves frcm drug abuse.
Notice that you emphasize pulling the navel point in - don't try to apply
Mulbhand (which occurs natrually when the navel is pulled). The hips and
spine do not flex and the only iTlOtion is slight up and down of the chest and
arms with each "sat Nam". IF YOO HAVE TIME FOR NamING ELESE, PRAcrICE THIS
KRIYA DAILY 'ID KEEP THE BODY A CLEAN AND VITAL TEMPLE OF ooD!

BREATHING TO CHANGE NOSTRILS AT WILL

Close yr:ur eyes. COncentrate on
your breath at the tip of yOJr
nose. see fran W'hich nostril you
are breath.in;. Within 3 minutes I
,
you shcW.d laxlw. '!hen change it.
If ycu are breathin; prinarily
through your left nostril,
I
conscioosly change to YOJr right
nostril. Be sure to keep yOJr
shoulders c:arpletely relaxed. You
should have a pressure at your
han:js, but none at yoor shc:W.ders.
I

Practice d'1an;ing this breath back



an:3. forth for as long as you like.
1 minute is a good time. Ycu can do
up to 31 minutes.
I
What it will do for you: nus exercise will alter your energy by changing
the active nostril. If you are thinking sanething neurotic, and find
I
that you're breathing through your right nostril, start breathing through
the left nostril, instead. (nus changes the energy fran fire to cool).
If you cannot relax or sleep, change to the left nostril. But if you
I
are irritated, depressed, or in a wierd nental state, start breathing
through the right nostril. If you are tired and need extra energy, change
to the right nostril. In 3 minutes you will be a different person.
I
nus ability to change nostrils should be taught to children within their
first 3 years. Exercising this ability can prevent nervous breakdowns.
I
NOI'E: With practice, you can switch nostrils simply by concentrating
and shifting the gaze to the side you want to breathe. through. Another
technique is to lie <bm on the side of the operating nostril and put
a small cushion under that annpit, pressing it with the weight of the I
body. '!he science of the nostrils is called Swara Yoga. It teaches that
when one nostril is daninant, the opposite hemisphere of the brain domin-
ates. '!he left nostril and right hemisphere of the brain are considered
I
lunar, and the right nostril (and left hemisphere), solar. It is recan-
mended to change nostrils at the first sign of disease.

108 times, to canpletely open the channels.
You are to visualize yourself sitting before millions upon millions of people
getting them to chant the mantra. You, yourself, are not chanting, but
the whole being should chant and you should hear the mantra as a vast, cosmic
flow, rather than a vibrating ego. Experience a C'.Jrrent of energy from
the base of the spine to the top of the head, like a brilliant beam of light.
'This mantra also has a special use. It can be used when the stars are poorly
aspected. "Adi Shakti" is the primal power, "sarah Shakti" is all power,
"Prithurn Bhagawati" - which creates through God, and "Kundalini Mata Shakti"
is Kundalini, the r-bther Power, and "Name" means I bow down to, recoqnize.
::his is a heavy, hea-"Y mantra. When a woman cha'1ts the mantra, the Universal
:energy will serve her. a man chants it, goodt:sses \-1ill serve him.
Break the barrier of intellect - give your heart to praise of the Lord, and
the four comers of the world will bow down to. God is not more powerful
than you. God is weaker than you if you realize him. Nothing can come
between A'IMA and PARAMA'IMA, (soul and Universal Soul) when theD! is love.

WHAT IS LOVE? Love is between you and you.
It is an experience of oneself in oneself. Your
"soul mate" is your own sou
Undated
Quoted in sadhana Guidelines
START LOVING YOURSELF: God gave you the gift
of life - fall in love with it. Go crazy for
it! Value it, feel it, have it, understand!
There is no God, no divinity, no reli9ioD,
nothing if yoU cannot fall in love ~ t yourself
Your problem is that you love somebody else
Do you want to be like God? It's not difficult
Love yourself!

it over and build yourself up to it. '!be mind is the biggest sex organ
in the human body. sex is an attitude of love, when every cell and
part of the hody is stimulated and awakened. In the days before, take
time. to do.the Venus Kriyas.
2. eatmuni.cation must be open. wanan is shy and secretive by nature and
will pretend enj oyment rather thanrisk hurting man Is ego. 'Itle man
must draw her out and find out W'hat she wants and needs throughout their
relationship. Con It take anything for granted.
3. '!he sanach must be empty. You should not have eaten for hours
in advance. '!be law of sexual enlightenment = light (enment) in the

5. Your three nervous systems must be in balance before intercourse.
If the parasympathetic nervous system is out of balance, the man will
have difficulty getting an erection. If his sympathetic nervous system
is out of action, he will ejaculate quickly. If your action nervous
system is out of balance, he will have a problem ej aculating at all.
Kundalini Yoga corrects these problems

ELEVEN MOON CENTERS
Fran a Lecture by Yogi Bhajan
There are eleven sites of the moon on a woman, through
which the moon moves in a 28 day cycle, spending 2';' days
at each center. The sequence varies with each woman, and
it does not coincide with her menstrual or zodiacal moon
cycle. It is different with each woman but the sequence
remains constant in any individual woman except in the
case of an emotional shock which does change it. It can
be predicted and known only by observation. A woman can
always feel it if she just concentrates with sensitivity.
A man can also learn her cycles with sensitive observation.
(The male's moon center is in the chin, just as is. the
woman's center, but because of his hair, there, he is more
steady and not as changeable as.a woman.)
In terms of sensi tivi ty, the most important is the
hair line and then the cheeks, where they are pink. Third
is the lips, then the sun spot on the ear lobes, the back
of the neck, breasts, belly button area (or the correspond-
'ing area on the spine), the inner thigh, eyebrows, clitoris
and the membrane in the vagine.
To understand a woman's emotional fluctuations, it
is necessary to understand the moon center cycle, as her
mood changes wi th her moon changes. In the lower organs
or in the thighs, she is very confirmative and wants to
substantiate everything. When it is in the clitoris or
vagina, she is eager to socialize, is out-going, charming
and talkative. She is most insecure when it is in the
navel or spine opposite it, but when it is in her breasts,
she is compassionate and giving to the extent of foolishness
At the back of the neck she is very romantic, and at such
a time, one little flower or gesture can make her nuts.
When it is around the cheeks is a dangerous time and she
is almost out of control. About the eyebrows, she is imag-
inative, illusionary and all you have to do is trace the
brow and she falls right over. At the earlobes, she dis-
cusses values. When it is in the hairline, she is intrac-
table so that nothing can move her an inch. The hairline
is close to the arcline, her halo, so a woman is most real
when her moon is in the hairline.

In secluded ashrams and monasteries,
certain orders of Buddhist monks prac-
tice AVATAFA Y(X;A, oiling their skin,
smcothing the soles of the feet with
pumice stone, practicing physical
and mental techniques to beautify
and preserve their b:x:hes, not in
vanity, but in reverence for God,
who gave them these bodies.
Far from allowing their bodies
to passively bow before the threat
of time, they actively seek to attain
and retain physical - beauty for as
long as possible, as the first step
on the path of achieving union of
the individual soul with the soul
of the universe, the individual mind
with Universal Mind. '!heir ideal.
is irmer beauty in a well-cared-for
shell, and so they also cul tivate
cleanliness, wholesomeness, strength
of character, and spiritual awareness.
Based on Hatha yoga, Avatara
yoga embraces many techniques to delay
physical agin, acquire a well-developed
supple and agile b:dy, srrcoth skin,
graceful I'OC>vement, serenity and beauty
of expression. '!hese are closely
guarded secrets, passed fran teacher
to disciple by word of I'OC>uth only
to the spiritually awakened who could
appreciate their purpose, and have not
yet been made available to the Western
world (but we susPect that Yogi Bhajan
has brought us many of the techniques,
which we have presented in the preceed-
ing pages.)
The doctrine (. there is no flower,
beast or star as beautiful as the
hmnan form') asserts that final spirit-
ual enlightenment is achieved after
a certain .stage in the physical con-
.n.... '-7 a t -:. a r a "\-,.. c> 9 a
quest of time, when the J:ody tecanes
the vessel of the intermediate nature
or soul (paralleling the Hatha yoga
precept that physical perfection leads
to victory of the spirit).
Many Avatara/Hatha yo;a techniques
invert the body to enable blood to
flow to the head and face, reversing
the influence of the downward pull
of gravity. others assume postures
to direct circulation there, increasing
arterial flow to head and neck, to
revitalize the glands, organs and
nerves, feed-ing starved facial tissues
Pranayama., or Lifeforce breathing
is of utmost importance, purifying
blood, improving circulation, feeding
the nerves.
Glandular stimulation is a third
canponent of Avatara yo;a and just
as in Kundali ni yoga, there are many
postures which stimulate and regulate
the pituitary, pineal, thyroid and
adrenal glands, as well as the ovaries
and gonads for 'We are just as young
as our glands'.
AIrong the postures for these
purposes, headstand (although Yogi
Bhajan has cautioned that it is danger-
ous for the neck) , Shoulder Stand
and Plow Pose.
Another strategy is going to
bed early twice a week to relax facial
tension, rest muscleS, reduce strain
on glands and nervous system and to
replenish and conserve stocks of vital
energy. There are rrany exercises
to improve digestion and correct cons-
stipation, a common cause of dull
eyes and bad skin, and occasional
fasts are recorrmended.

*Avatara: cne ...me combines 3 elements
in his being: 1) Inspiring divinity,
2)a highly evolved intermediate nature
or soul, the channel of that inspiring
divinity, and 3) a pure, clean physical
b:dy. Or, a celestial being manifes-
ting through the ageless b:dy of a
fully liberated soul.
'!here is general agreement that the
Indian saint, Sai Paba, is a genuine
avatara, and other candidates included
Yogananda. '!he Hindu God Krishna
is an Avatar of Vishnu, and many of
his other avatar forms have been cele-
brated in song and story.

}k)ld the thought: THE YEARs WILL PASS
BUT THIS FACE WILL NC1l' AGE. Delays
further aging.
To grow younger, a yogi evokes his
image-. of 10, 20 years before, and
merges it with the - present likeness
tmtil eventually -the younger canpletely
obscures the older face. Intense
concentration, will-poINer, patience
and faith are necessary for success.
'!'O increase circulation in the face,
here is a set of 5 asanas ('!bey
are prohihited in cases of high blood-
pressure. )
1. Head of a Cr:M Pose. In Rock Pose
on heels, raise and bend the right
arm behind the head, clasping the
left hand which is bent up behind
the back. Hold the pose with eyes
closed,' face relaxed, and deep breath-
ing. Concentrate on increasing circul-
ation to facial tissues, finning and
toning the skin. Wannth will soon
be felton the left side of the face.
Conclude by exhaling and bending for-
ward, hands still clasped til forehead
touches the floor. RePeat on the
opposite side. Use a towel. if the
hands cannot rreet at first. Practice
makes it easier.
2. Pose of a ChiIQ, variation: A
pleasant, relaxing position,' normally
practiced with anns at sides, this
variation increases circulation to
the head. In Rock Pose, rest forehead
on the floor. Clench fists and press
them together behind the back, as
the neck, with thumbs resting on the
jawbone, near jugular bone. Inhale,
exhale and lean forward till face
rests on the floor, at the same time
pressing with the thumbs. Wi th head
still down, inhale and release thumb
pressure, and exhale as you cane up.
Should be practiced carefully.
Knees-to-stcmaCh: en the back, inhale
and draw knees up to stana.ch (chest),
holding them -pressed against body
with the hands, and hold the breath
and pose tmtil the ~ l face is flush-
ed with blood. Release, and relax.
5. '! Shoulderstand or Half-candle
Pose: en back, raise the legs and
then lower torSo up, supporting 'Weight

flow of blocxi, but legs are straight
up. }k)ld the pose with deep breathing
with closed eyes, facial muscles relax-
ed 'lIDtil you feel the cheeks growing
warm and full as blocxi reaches tissues.
The longer the pose is held, the great-
er the benefit. Holding the pose,
see yourself as ever young, unchange-
able. cOnclude with Plow Pose, feet

toes with hands, hold briefly, and
slowly return to relaxation on back.

Kundalini yoga is closly related to

ordinary consciousness. '!here are

FRANA & APANA


Frana is the basic life force of cons-
ciousness in the air we breathe and
the food we eat, assimilated effort-
lessly, and Kundalini yoga practice

enhances its absorption. Apana is the


eliminating energy stored in the lower
chakras. When it is raised and united
with prana (by breath retention & body
contractions or locks), psychic heat
is generated which raises Kundalini
through the chakras.

Place the tongue on the roof of the
mouth and inhale as slowly as possible,
allowing only a thin stream of air
to flow. When you can no longer inhale
begin to exhale at the same slow,
steady pace. Both inhale and exhale
are through the nose. You will fill
the lower portion of the lungs first,

expanding the diaphram, and then the
top, expandi.rig. the chest. If you
can slow the breath down to 6 or fewer
breaths per minute (5 seconds of inhale
and 5 seconds of exhale), the pituitary
is sti.mulated, autanatically activating

BENEFITS OF KUNDALINI YOGA
AND MEDITATION
'!he meditatioos and yoga exercises
in this manual present an opportunity
to acquire the mental, ~ y s i c l and
spiritual capacity to enjoy life
to the fullest. Instead of becarming
stressed fran the intensifying energy
and rapid changes occuring on the
planet today, we will be able to
"get high" fran the transition to
the New Age. Practiced, these tech-
niques will "tune us in". Kundalini
Yoga is a powerful scientific tech-
nology, developed over thousands
of years, to access higher light
energy and produce a conscious rrcde
of. living, implementing creativity
and productivity fast! We can
expect the following results.
PROBLEM SOLVING: We cant always
avoid problems, but we can ".be acre
effective in handling them. By chang_
ing.perspect.ives, being less E!tOtional
arid uninVolVed, W'e can raise our
consciousness to attract or provide
solutions, thereby rising to a posi-
tion of 'fX)Wer,. able to effect change
rather than helplessly stand by play-
ing the victem.
-.
C'LFANSING: Yoga and meditation power_
fully cleanses us of ~ y s i c l mental
and em::>tional obstructions, \lolOrn-
out attitudes and beliefs, leaving
us space to acquire beneficial and
useful new ones, and opening us to
access higher knowledge and our own
inner selves.
-.
A BEITER WAY OF LIVING: '!here are
three levels of being -
..
1. Life is a series of problems to
.-
be solved, .and the best we can hope
for is to find solutions, or that the
problem will justgo away.
2. Life is a series of OPPOrtunities,
and problems can be turned intooppor-
..
tunities for lessons and growth.
-.
3. Life is a miracle, a series of
synchronistic .events unfolding at
the right time and place, in a cons-
tant flOW'. As we raise our vibration-
al frequency, we nove into miraculous
living.
OPPORUNITIES & VALUE FULFIUl1ENT:
'!he ability to manifest our deepest
desires reveals itself, and we can
perceive and draw opp::>rtunities to
us. We no longer have to go out
and manipulate or fight for what
we want.
.a:NTROL: As we gain more control
over our lives, we have less need
to exercise control, because we are
in the process of discovering and
accepting life as it unfolds, and
W'e feel rore secure and trusting.
DIVINE A'I'lTroDES: As we transcend
the minds duality, new attitudes
aOOut life, ourselves and others
appear like acceptance, trust, grati-
tude and non-attachment, and we live
with fewer expectations or judgements.
0iARACI'ER: Greater mental clarity
and focus is achieved, and it is
easier to act consistently, to finish
tasks, be truthful, fair and honest.
HEALING: C>..1r healing powers manifest
and our presence, touch, \lolOrds or
smile heals.
HEALTH: '!he iIrmune system is streng-
thened and we enjoy vibrant health
~ abundant energy.
PRESENCE: With the developnent of
the electro-magnetic field (aura),
not only .is our health improved,
but we beccme more poised. and effect-
ive human beings.
PURE KN<lING: Wi th medi tation comes
intuition - knowing and feeling what
194
is right and best, and no longer
having to reason through the pro t s
and cons t s of each situation.
PROl'EX:I'ICN: Intuitive powers alert
us to dangers, and lJlle do - not attract
negative forces. 5anetimes the univ-
verse changes our plans so that we
dont t get on the plane that crashes!
PRAYER PatlER: -- Clarity, humility
and devotion clear the channels for
our prayers to be heard and answered.
I
JOYFUL LIVING: Life beccinesrelaxed
and fun. we feel taken care of,
and becane "unrea.s6riably happyii. --
HIGHER AWARENESS: 'lhrough meditation
we establish an intimate relationship
with ourselves and the God within.
This relationship opens us up to
higher level relationships with others
THE ~ L ~ C N '!he congru-
ent alignment of b:xiy, mind and spirit
opens channels to other dimensions
of existence and the universe unfolds
within our minds.
IMPACI'ING - ~ PEACE AND BEO:.f.1MING
A FORCE FUR GXD: '!he rore we elevate
consciousness and the quality of
our internal being, the rore posit-
ively we affect the world and those
around us. Inner peace beccmes outer
peace.
A DRUGLESS HIGH: Recreational drugs
are used to fulfill the deep longing
for spiritual identity as much as
for the euphoria, relaxation, sensual
delights, mental and physical energy
and the other pleasures they may afford
sane drugs enable us to talk with
God, transcend time and space, exper-
ience sights and sounds cellularly
and perceive the \\lOrld as pure sens-
ation devoid of meaning and rorality,
and ourselves as simples I sensers '
without character, purpose, - self-
interest or ego. other durgs, of
course, magnify the ego and seem to
sharpen the rational achievement-
oriented mind while d:imi.nishing sensory
awareness. But the price is always
high - loss of health, freedan, self-
respect, dignity, family, friends,
merrory, feelings and/or mind!
In practicing Kundalini yoga,
we can experience the same pleasures
without the loss of character, ego
or values. FUrthermore, 'Ne are enabled
to apply the insights gained to the
physical \\IOrld, it allows us to exer-
cise more (rather than less) control
over our lives, and 'Ne are enpow'ered
to live successfully in, enjoying
its demands and challenges without
judgements. M::lreover it is eminerit!y
healthy, perfectly legal and satisfies
the deep craving for spiritual meaning.
