“HAR” AEROBIC KRIYA (Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan)
Kriya: A kriya is a set of Exercises to accomplish a certain objective.
This Kriya, uses the Mantra “Har” in each exercise.
Mantra: “Har” means “the Creator, the Source from which all visible or invisible Creation has emerged”. This Mantra has the power to clear all blocks and strengthens will power. It is also a Prosperity Mantra which means repetitive use of “Har” can create abundance and prosperity.
There are 84 Meridian Points on the roof of the mouth. When we say “Har”, the tip of tongue hits the upper palette on the Meridian Point which stimulates the hypothalamus which then stimulates the Pineal Gland situated in the brain, causing impulses in the Pituitary Gland. This reaction causes secretions from the entire Glandular System creating a feeling of inner bliss.
- This set is to be done quickly proceeding from one exercise to next immediately.
- Each exercise is to be done 8 times.
- Whole set is to be repeated 5 times.
