This meditation is said to redeem all negativity of the past and present, smooth out your day-to-day problems and create a positive tomorrow. It will change your luck and allow prosperity to flow.
This beautiful and powerful meditation has a history in its name. The ancient symbol for this was the Hindu God of Knowledge and Happiness, Ganesha. The other name for Ganesha is Gunpati. Ganesha was depic
ted as a rotund man with the head of an elephant. This huge body balances and rides on a rat, conveying the message that even the impossible can be done with this meditation. The rat represents the quality of penetration. A rat can get in almost any place. So Ganesha can know anything and can get past any blockages. Wisdom and wise choices grant you happiness in your life. The impact of this meditation is to clear the blocks from your own karma.
Each of us has three regions of life to conquer: The past, which is recorded in our samskaras and which brings us the challenges and blessings of fate, and is balanced by these sounds; the present, which must be mastered by karma yoga—the practice of action with integrity in the moment; and the future, recorded in the ether and at its best and most fulfilled, is called dharma.
This Ganapati Kriya allows you
to let go of the attachments to the mind and to the impact of past actions so you can create and live a fulfilled life.
How to do it
Posture: Sit in Easy Pose, with a light neck lock.
Eyes: The eyes are 1/10th open. Concentrate at the Third Eye Point.
Mudra: Place the wrists over the knees, hands in Gyan Mudra, with the arms and elbows straight.
Mantra: Saa-Taa-Naa-Maa- Raa-Maa-Daa-Saa- Saa-Say-So-Hung
Chant the mantra on a single breath, as you press the fingertips of each hand sequentially (thumb to fore finger, thumb to middle finger, thumb to ring finger, thumb to little finger) with each syllable. Use a monotone voice. Continue for 11 minutes.
Inhale deeply and hold the breath. Move the body in a slow twist and stretch motion. Move each muscle of the body. Move the head, torso, arms, back, belly and hands. Then exhale powerfully. Repeat this 5 times.
Immediately sit straight. Look at the Lotus Point, the tip of the nose. Become totally calm, absolutely still. Meditate for 3 minutes.
To End: Inhale and hold the breath for 30 seconds as you physically move and rotate your body as if it is going through spasms. Every muscle must be stretched, squeezed and turned around, from the muscles in your face, head and neck, down to your toes. Exhale. Repeat this 3 more times. Then inhale, sit calmly and concentrate on the tip of your nose for 20 seconds. Exhale, and relax.
“It is called an impossible-possible Kriya. All the accounting of past negativity, now and tomorrow, will be redeemed. Now sing it with a natural, heart-center voice. Come on, ‘Sa Ta Na Ma, Ra Ma Da Sa, Sa Se, Sohung.’” -Yogi Bhajan 11/2/88
The Ganpati Kriya has the ability to work miracles. By chanting primal sounds, you realign the chakras, you stimulate the glandular system, raise the energy through a new pattern. This energy cuts through these samskaras, freeing you little by little. When you do these meditations, and chant these mantras, you end up changing the channel. Instead of the vibratory signal of your karma, you change the frequency of your whole being and a new vibration sends out a signal to pull in a different stream of thoughts. You no longer subscribe to the wheel of Karma. You create enough energy to make a better choice and choose a better thought to energize.
This can happen so fast that sometimes you won’t believe it. Believe it. There’s a part of us that’s infinite, so we expect fast change and miraculous progress, but when it doesn’t happen we get negative. Kundalini yoga is a super human technology that works really fast to dump garbage and allows you to move in a more po
sitive direction. Question is, can you keep up with it enough to let the changes happen?
