From the manual: I AM WOMAN.
In the face of any great change, we confront three destructive impulses:
to be alone and withdraw,
to deny or fantasize about the future that is coming,
and to live with greed or scarcity instead of prosperity.
This mantra counters these three tendencies and instills the mind with courage and caliber.
Focus on the movement of the tongue and the sensation of the sound as it creates a time and space.
Note the subtle difference in the meaning of the words "Siri" and "Maha".
"Great (Siri)" still has a touch of the finiteness; "Infinite (Maha)" has no finiteness or form.
POSTURE: Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine, and Neck Lock.
MUDRA: Left hand in Gyan Mudra resting on the knee with the arm straight. Raise the right hand to about 12 inches in front of the chest, holding the mantra sheet and concentrating on the written words as you chant. (You can download and print a copy of the mantra from KRI or type it up and print it out yourself). If you don't have a mantra sheet, angle our hand as if you were reading a sheet of paper, with the palm open and the wrist straight.
EYE FOCUS: Apply Neck Lock and look down the nose to see the mantra sheet or palm. When he gave this meditation, Yogi Bhajan asked them to focus the eyes, to pay attention and not drift. If you do not have the page to read from, use the palm but continue to focus.
MANTRA: The mantra is The Mantra for the Aquarian Age.
(a) Chant with the mantra. I like Sat Siri by Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda (its available on Spotify or iTunes). Chant for 7 minutes.
(b) Continue chanting, close the eyes and place the hands of the Heart Center, left palm on the heart, right palm resting on the left. Press the hands firmly into the chest. Press hard for 2 minutes.
(c) Keep your hands on the heart and begin to whisper the mantra. Whisper powerfully. 1 minute.
(d) Chant without the music for 30 seconds. Inhale, exhale and relax.
