Dharana
(Concentration on Energy)

Sakti Kriya utilizes the trinity of prana (breath), mantra (sound), and pasyanti (light) to develop concentration power. It is also known as kundalini-in-action. This trinity is a powerful tool to focus and calm the mind. It serves as a bridge to cross from the outer world into the inner world.

Nada Prasyanti Variation 1 (Sound Light)

  • Sit in a comfortable position, with spine lengthened. If needed or as an option, recline.
  • Visualize energy (kundalini) as a brilliant white light at the base of the spine.
  • Inhale with the mental mantra of OM; see the light extend to the crown chakra.
  • Exhale with the mantra of AH using an aspirated breath or pronouncing it mentally.
  • During the exhalation, light expands from the crown chakra surrounding the body in the aura of white light.

Dharana2

The light is limitless and the cosmic sound is continuous. Feel the expansiveness of consciousness as the energy permeates the body, mind, and spirit.

Dharana3


OM is the mantra for the Universal Energy.

AH is the mantra for sahasrara chakra (crown energy center), which represents Universal Consciousness.
