Tat Tvam Asi: "You are that"
-Chandogya Upanishad

Welcome to Yoga Journey March 2016!

Yin Metal Rabbit Month is the perfect time to journey into the world of yantra meditation! The roots of the Kailaish Dhanraksha yantra stem from a circular metal pendant created well over a thousand years ago atop Mount Kailash. Vedic and Tibetan sacred texts tell of a group comprised of six Lamas and six Indian rishis who energized the pendant with Twelve sacred mantras over a Twelve year period. Each of the animals on the original pendant represent a corresponding mantra. 

Blushing Buddha’s Kailash Yantra Meditation Practice:

Place the Kailash Yantra in your right hand.

 Sit in down on your yoga mat and come into easy pose.

Focus your gaze on the patterns of the yantra.

Place the yantra down on your yoga mat while still gazing at the patterns. 

Take a deep breath. 

Rub your hands together briskly to create warmth.

Proceed to massage the base of your spine until you feel a stirring of energy. 

Allow thoughts and emotions to emerge without labeling them. 

Visualize milky white energy transporting your thoughts and emotions upward into your throat chakra.

Breathe deeply and stay alert. 

Speak out loud: "Amrit Hala Hala Om Namah Shivaya".
Focus on a small blue gem forming inside the white energy in your throat chakra. 

See the blue jewel growing larger as it absorbs the white energy substance.

Finish the transformation by allowing the blue jewel to emanate bright blue light inside your throat chakra. 

Watch through your mind's eye as the blue energy gently changes your skin color to a vibrant blue. 

Shine in your awareness. 

When you're ready, end the meditation by thanking Shiva for your lesson in transformation through steady awareness. "Om Namah Shivaya!"

Wishing you a very Happy and Healthy Yoga Journey,
