Meditate on all the muscles as you lift the b:xiy, as slowly as possible, muscle by muscle, until the nose is on the ground between the knees. Hold for 3 minutes and relax. 4.

Uses Kundalini energy to project the mind to Infinity. a::Mon!Nl'S: In our culture, 'Ne are taught to vie1!7 sex in teJ:mS of pleasure and reproducticn. we aren't educated in the need for Jl'Clderation in sex in order to maintain health and nerve balance. sexual experience in c:orrect consciousness can give you the experience of God and bliss, but before that can cx:cur, you must charge ycNr sexual batteries and possess a real potency. SEminal fluids, male and female, CCI'1tain high c:ax:entratioos of minerals and elements crucial to proper nerve balance and brain functicn. '!he sexual fluid is reabsorbed by the body if it is allowed mature. Its essence, or "Ojas" is transported into the spinal fluid. Running ycNr mind with ojas is like rumi.nq a car without oil - you wear it out quickly. About 90' of "your sexual energy is used to repair and rejuvenate the organs of the body.

!be normal span of potency for a yogi is equal to the length of his life. In the United States, potency wanes even in the early forties. 'Ihis kriya generates sexual energy and transmutes it into ojas and healing force.

SEXUALITY: There is energy in you and you have to channel it. Highly energetic (in games, sports) people are not very sexually desirous. Inactive people are more sexually oriented, a release for the energy. August 21, 1972

'!his exercise measures your age and sensual, creative productivity • If you can p..lt your nose bebleen your knees and hold it for the given time, your effective age and capacity is that of an 18 year old.

your tongue will be out, but there is nothing

which can match this.

as the foot pressurizes the sciatica, and

the straight spine stimulates special nucleus

DO YOU BELIEVE IN GOD? God loves us and we don't accept Him. God created us and we don't trust Him. God is with us and we never feel it, and so on. We do this to Almighty God and we do it to our fellow human beings, and we do it to our insti­ ions and organizations, but above all, we do it to our relationships. Do you believe in God? Do you? Do you feel God? NO! You love God, you know God, you feel God and you understand all about God when, in the Name of God you stand up and BLESS OTHERS! If you cannot share God with others, you do not what God is. Whenever a human shares himself (with another) it is human and emotional, but when a human shares himself in the Name of God, it is divine, it is sacred, and it is forever. If you have not shared your God, you never got it. When you stand up to any challenge, and bless someone in the Name of God, you invi te the Almighty Infinite God behind you forever.

KRIVA FOR PELVIC BALANCE, ENERGV AND POTENCY To walk with grace and strength is to feel connected to the ~rld and ready

to act. Experiencing this is not;. only a matter of mind but also of physical balance. When the pelvis and muscles that shape its posture are out of balance, many systems of the body will begin to show signs of stress, exhaustion, limi ted endurance and low back pain. 'Ibis kriya is helpful for maintaining energy and balance, and, if apracticed regularly, it helps maintain potency. NOI'E: Be sure to warm up the spine, first, and beginners should proceed slowly and carefully. 1. Bridge Pose. Hands just behind hips, palms down, fingers pointing back bend knees placing feet before buttocks and inhale, raising torso and thighs so that they form a straight line, parallel to the floor, keeping elbows straight and allowing head to fall back. Apply Mulbhand and hold with normal breathing for 1-3 minutes. Inhale, exhale and relax. strengthens back and aids metabolism.

2. Wheel Pose: en back, bring soles of feet to buttocks, and hands behind shoulders, fingers pointing to feet, with the tips just under the shoulders. Inhale and raise torso, straightening arms, so that J::xxJy forms a continuous arch fran the heels to the palms of hands and hold with Breath of Fire for 1-3 minutes. strengthens lower back, stimulates energy flow through the spine and chakras and aids metabolism.

KEEPING

THE

BODY

BEAUTIFUL o::tober 1969

1. In Easy Pose with an erect spine,

breathe long and deep through both nostrils, focussing on the life~iving flow of the breath for 3 minutes • '!ben inhale, hold the breath a few seconds and relax it.

2. Frog Pose, squatting on balls of the feet, heels touching each other , hands on the ground between knees, spine and arms straight. Press chin in and d::7..In but not forward, placing it finnly in the cavity at the top

of the breastbone where collar bones

meet. '!ben inhale as you raise the

buttocks and straighten the legs (still on the toes), and exhale into original position, 10 times. en the 1Oth, stay dc7vm and take 3 deep breaths, exhaling canpletely on the 3rd and holding the breath cur as you apply Mulbhand and feel the energy rise along the spine, for 10-20 seconds, without straining. Repeat the exercise 26 times. 3. Life Nerve stretch. Sit with legs

straight out in front and relax forward

holding on to toes, for 3 minutes.

cn1MENl'S: '!be body is a temple of human expression and evolvement. We are often told by the media and friends that it wears out, has many illnessness and is extremely fragile. But that is not true. '!he body is sensitive and self-repairing. As Yogi Bhajan puts it:

"'!his beautiful body cannot be eaten by anything except your own ego. -God doesn It kill you. '!bere is no death except your own ego and your own negativity. '!hat reduces the voltage of your life force so your circumvent field becanes weak and death creaps into your body. '!his body is beautiful! It was made by a very special imagination of the Creator." VE are creators also, and have some ability to create the environments we want to live in. We create our bodies with each thought and activity, as well as with each meal. So we must clean the body and readjust the flow of energy periodically since we are all products of our habits, and since few of us are without ego. This kriya, which is a variation of the standard Frog Pose is very powerful. You must keep the chin locked in. It readjusts the sex energy and the balance of prana and apana. It is gcod for digestion and circulation to the head. If done with powerful breathing, it will make you quickly sweat.

CXlo1MENI'S: Ecstasy exists within at all times, independent of the whims of circumstance and personality • It is the Infinite Pool to refresh the heart, giving strength to creating a better self and ~rld. '!his meditat­ ion leads to that experience. 'l11e rrantra is a triple sound • In stage one, the mind enjoys the rhythm, but daily thoughts continue to enter, and you don I t wish to put all your energy into ecstasy. In stage 2 the self conscious mind will let you feel yourself, and the usual, disturbing thoughts slip away. In stage 3, you want to get rid of self-consciousness and unconsciously iJrmerse yourself in ecstasy.

So calm, so sleepy, like the merging of a raindrop into a vast, calm, beaut­

iful lake.

You reflect all, cleanse all.

If you can cross all, you can

know the extE.nt of living in yourself, with balanced consciousness playing

with the Infinite.

Kunda.lini yo;a sets and meditations also. use visualization, Proj ection and focussed attention to attain "speci­ fic effects. 'Ibis knowledge has been a ; guarded secret, handed down fran Guru to selected students for centuries but" thanks" to Yogi Bhajan, it is now offered to the public. 'nlrough the practice of Kundalini yoga an individual can unite his cons­ ciousness with Cosmic COnsciousness on a regular basis by carefully per­ forming the exercises and meditations in SPeCific sequence and canbination.
