If your mind also remains restless, then you can adopt Shantam Kriya to keep your fickle mind calm.
Yes, the name of this state is Shantam Kriya. This kriya is a compilation of the exercises of asana, pranayama, and meditation. And it has been made keeping in mind today’s time. It heals all the parts of the body and also keeps the mind calm, concentrated, and healthy. This new kriya is based on breathing techniques and can be done for three minutes at any time of the day. Anyone can do this meditation anywhere, anytime. It calms the mind and also promotes feelings of love, enthusiasm, patience, concentration, and memory. This unique yoga practice to control the fickle mind includes three different types of practices such as-
For the first minute, focus on your breath. For this, close your eyes and sit in a relaxed posture. Inhale slowly, filling your lungs to capacity. Release the breath without making any sound and without holding the breath. Usually, the cycle of deep breathing should be five to six minutes, so take deep breaths in the first cycle of 10 to 12 seconds.
And if you want to learn different types of yoga asanas then you should join a Yoga in Rishikesh.
After focusing on the breath for one minute, make a low humming sound with your mouth closed to exhale. Concentrate on the humming sound (AUM). And then repeat this process five or six times.
The mind becomes calm by humming the sound. The third action is to enjoy this blissful mood, focusing on your normal breathing process. This speed can be increased and decreased. Notice this particular sound while inhaling and exhaling. This is the sound of ‘So-Hum’. When we inhale or exhale, we make a sound like ‘hum’. This is called Ajpa Jaap.
But after listening to the sound, peace starts coming into the mind, this experience is later immersed in Ajpa Jaap. After this, sitting in the posture of meditation with joy, you are complete and full of love. And do not imagine anything at this stage and remain silent even with the surrounding environment. Focus on yourself and sit quietly in witnessing for some time. Finally, rub your palms together and apply on your eyes. After some time remove the palms and open the eyes. But before doing this yoga, consult your health advisor or yoga instructor.
