Meditation for the Tenth Gate:
Tune in to your meditation practice with ‘Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo’ (repeat 3 times).
Posture: Easy pose, with a straight spine. The chest is out and the chin is in - apply a light neck lock. The hands are resting in your lap (right hand on top of left) with the palms facing up, pads of the thumbs touching.
Focus and Mantra: Your eyes are focused upward, guiding your attention to the top of your head, your 10th Gate (7th Chakra). The mantra (chanted to yourself, not aloud) is ‘Har, Har, Mukanday’. As you mentally chant ‘Har, Har’ pull your Navel Point in. Hold Navel Point in, then press the tip of your tongue against the roof of your mouth as you mentally chant ‘Mukanday’. Concentrate deeply and immerse yourself. Feel yourself expand beyond time and space, into a realm of total peace and joy.
Time: 11 minutes.
Music: In class we used ‘Har Har Mukande’ from the Crimson Collection, Volumes 4&5 (available from Spirit Voyage).
