Basic Kriya Yoga - Microcosmic Orbit

Breath in while visualizing energy going up the spine to the back of the head. Hold in a moment. Breath out visualizing the energy continuing the circle to the front of the body downwards back to the bottom of the spine. Hold out a moment. Repeat 24 times.

 If there is a daily practice, 12 repetitions can be added to the mix every month.

 Quality of Intent is everything in this practice.

 If any pain or discomfort is felt stop and fix the physical or energetic imbalance before continuing. 

Balance and honesty devoid of ambition is the way to not get hurt.

This seemingly simple and innocent practice can be a life line and savior for spiritual people living in stagnant routines, a wild flyer and physical and energetical weakness.

 At the very least it gives a level of physical wellbeing.

 At any rate, balance is a necessity so ocasionally one should give it up for some time and work in silent awareness without any action involved, in order to avoid being entangled in it as a routinary affair.

  • Thank you, Dorje.

    If it's okay with you I moved the discussion to the Kriya section of Yoga and Tantra. Eventually I hope other Kriyas will be posted there and it would be nice to keep them together. (You can move it if you prefer by pressing 'Edit' )

    This is a good point. To never lose the innocent marvel of being within a form manifested by Shakti for our wisdom and delight. To be constantly enthusiastic about the miracle of our Being. It just popped up strongly for me yesterday this thing about avoiding routine, to untangle from any 'practice', so it's good to find it echoed :)

    ''If you can adopt the attitude of purposelessness through purpose and effortlessness through effort, then you are on the right track. Try not to have the strong feeling of being the doer. Let the kriyas 'happen' through the mandala of your being.''
