How to do the Meditation
Ready to get started? If the moon is full, you can do this mudra meditation. Find a spot that is comfortable, where you can be alone in your practice. Next, follow these steps:
While doing this full moon meditation, you will need to chant the following Kundalini Yoga mantra:
“Sa Ray Sa Sa, Sa Ray Sa Sa, Sa Ray Sa Sa, Sa Rang
Har Ray Har Har, Har Ray Har Har, Har Ray Har Har, Har Rang”
You will need to keep repeating the mantra as you focus your attention on a meditative state.
Hand position and movement:
1. Bring your hands together to adopt the Prayer Pose at the Navel Point. As you chant the mantra, you will move your hands in sync with each of the words.
2. When you utter ‘Sa Ray Sa Sa’, you should bring your palms toward the middle of your torso. Keep them around four to six inches from yourself, parallel to your body.
3. Next, when you pass the Heart Center, open up your hands. By the time that you have reached the Brow Point, your hands should have created the Open Lotus position.
4. That means that your palms will be together at the base and your little fingers will touch each other. Equally, the tips of your thumbs should be touching. The rest of your fingers need to be open like petals.
5. Next, as the mantra moves onto the ‘Har Ray Har Har’ part, turn your hands inward and upside down. Your fingers should be pointing down with the back of your hands touching. This is the Reverse Prayer Pose.
6. Finally, bring the mudra down your chakras until you reach the Navel Point. This should be in sync with the ‘Har Rang’ sound. Next, return your hands to the starting position and go again.
You can engage in this full moon meditation for between 11 and 31 minutes. If you are new to the realms of Kundalini Yoga, you may want to start out with a short time period and work your way up.
