Kirtan Kriya ~ Meditation

I just received another addition of my Yoga for EveryBody newsletter. Today they included an amazing meditation, with a mantra as well as some hand movements. I just went through the meditation with the video and must say it is very powerful.

The Mantra is easy to remember it's just Sat Nam ~ which means truth and Name. When you repeat the mantra you are saying that you are part of the universal truth (which we all are).

The mantra breaks down into 4 parts. Sa Ta Na Ma. You press your thumb together with each of your fingers on each syllable. So for Sa you would press together your thumb and pointer finger, for Ta it would be thumb and middle finger, Na is thumb and ring finger and Ma is thumb and pinky.

This uses aspects of acupressure to change your brain waves. It is said to be very good for managing addictions as well.

The host of the video walks a executive on business through the meditation, and provides excellent instruction along the way.

If during the day you find yourself getting frustrated with the kids, not being able to get done everything you'd hoped, why not take five minutes to stop and do a little meditation to get you back in the right frame of mind.
