Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine and a light Neck Lock.
The eyes are fixed at the tip of the nose. This meditation is not to be done with the eyes closed.
Block the right nostril with the right thumb. Inhale slowly and deeply through the left nostril. Suspend the breath and pump the navel point while mentally chanting the mantra, Waahe Guroo 16 times.
Each of the 16 repetitions of the mantra consists of 3 progressively deeper pulls of the navel. On "Waa", pull the navel in 1/3, on "Hey" pull the navel in 2/3, on "Guroo" pull the navel in all the way, and then release.
After the 16 repetitions, unblock the right nostril. Place the right first finger to block off the left nostril, and exhale slowly and deeply through the right nostril. (The fourth finger can also be used for blocking the nostril.)
Continue this breath sequence with segmented navel pumps.
Practice anywhere between 5-150 minutes. Start slow and build your way up.
