Sadhguru: Isha Kriya is an extremely simple process but a powerful tool. These three ingredients – your breath, your thought, and your awareness, in the right combination, if you use them, your ability to use the mind and the body is so greatly enhanced that you almost look superhuman for somebody else. But I’m telling you, “This is human.” This is not about being superhuman. This is about realizing, ‘Being human is super.
’ Speaker: Isha Kriya instructions. Preparation: Sit in a crossed-legged posture with spine comfortably erect.
If needed use a backrest but no headrest. Doing the kriya facing east offers extra benefits. Keep your hands upon your thighs, with your palms facing upwards.
With your face slightly upturned, eyes closed, keep a mild focus between your eyebrows. This meditation will happen in three stages. Stage 1: inhale and exhale gently, slowly. With each inhalation mentally say to yourself, “I’m not the body.” The inhalation should last for the whole duration of that thought.
With each exhalation mentally say to yourself, “I’m not even the mind.” The exhalation should last for the whole duration of that thought. Repeat this for 7 to 11 minutes. Stage 2: Utter the sound, ”Aaa” seven times with mouth wide open, exhaling fully into each sound. The sound should come from just below the navel.
You need not utter it very loud but loud enough to feel the vibration of the sound.
Stage 3: Sit for 5 to 6 minutes with a slightly upturned face, and keep a mild focus between your eyebrows. The total time of this practice is between 12 to 18 minutes. You can sit longer if you wish. Please note, when you sit to do Isha Kriya, do not pay attention to the activity of the mind or body.
Whatever is happening in your body or your mind, just ignore it and simply sit there. Do not take a break in between as it will disturb the reorganization of energies that happens during the practice.
The kriya will yield maximum benefits if you do it for a minimum of 12 minutes each time. Do it twice a day for 48 days, considered as a full mandala or cycle, Or once a day for ninety days Anyone can practice this Kriya and enjoy its benefits. Simply follow the instructions without making any changes.
This is a simple but very potent Kriya. You can remind yourself that, “I’m not the body, I’m not even the mind” anytime during the day. It would be best to use the voice in the video as support when doing the Kriya. However, you can also do it without using voice support. Sadhguru: Sit in a crossed-legged posture and keep your hands open, facing upward.
Sit with your face slightly upturned.
The moment you sit this way, with a slightly upturned face, you will see naturally your focus will shift between your eyebrows. To maintain this mild focus between your eyebrows. As I utter these two sentences, with inhalation you take this thought “I’m not this body,” with exhalation ”I’m not even this mind.” (Please Close Your Eyes) “I am not the body; I am not even the mind.
” Sadhguru: ”Aaa” Sadhguru: Keep your eyes closed and just sit still, with your face slightly turned upward. Sounds of Isha music – Instrumental Music… Sadhguru chants Yogarathova Bhogarathova… Sadhguru: Take your own time, take your own time, slowly, very slowly open your eyes.
Speaker: Daily practice of Isha Kriya will bring health, dynamism, prosperity and well-being. It is a powerful tool to cope with the hectic pace of modern life and empowers people to experience their lives to its fullest potential..
