Bound Lotus Kriya Tonight for Summer Solstice!
Adesh will be leading bound lotus kriya Wednesday at 7:30 PM at Mystic Water to usher in the transformational energies of sumer solstice. If you couldn’t make it to New Mexico for white tantric this year don’t be dissapointed. Come to Mystic Water and immerse yourself in the powerful healing kriya “bound lotus.”
Harnam Singh: “Bound Lotus is a crucible for consciousness. It’s many things, but most of all and most profoundly, it is a space for deep healing which you are able to enter by putting yourself into an asana. You begin by coming into full lotus pose and then one at a time you cross your arms behind your back and grab a hold of your big toes. Then you bow and stay there for up to 31 minutes. Very few people can just get into the full pose when they begin because there is an extraordinary level of physical flexibility required. Most people have to work up to it. Bound Lotus begins once you get there and stay there, but the physical is only one aspect of it. Both your arms and legs are making the shape of infinity, and by bowing, by putting your head beneath your heart, you are allowing your heart to rule. You are balancing your intellect with your compassion.” The last thing you do in the posture is place the tongue against the roof of the mouth, which stimulates the acupressure points. The pituitary gland releases hormones that place you into an even deeper state of consciousness and meditation. Bound Lotus is a physical kriya and it is a mental meditation. Once you are in the physical posture, then you begin to address the mind. That’s the hard part. The mind and the ego will think of a jillion different reasons why you shouldn’t be in that position. You will automatically be uncomfortable; the ego wants no part of this posture. After about five minutes, your mind will try to get you to get out of it unless you can breath and bow to the infinite. Any acrobat could get into Bound Lotus, but you have to be a yogi to stay there.”
Most of the class will be spent preparing the body for full lotus, modifications and props will be given to those who are unable to come into the full posture. Yogi Bhajan said that if you hold any posture long enough the universe will come to support you:)
Hope to see you all there. The healing capacity of this kriya is very powerful so get ready to move some energy tonight!
