L Form of Concentration
Repeat this mantra while sitting with your spine straight. The focus of concentration is the L form (see illustration above). With each syllable, imagine the sound flowing in through the top of your head and out your third eye point, in the middle of your forehead. For two minutes, chant in your normal voice. For the next two minutes, chant in a whisper. For the next four minutes, chant silently. Then reverse the order, whispering for two minutes, and out loud for two minutes, for a total of twelve minutes. The mudras, or finger positions, are very important in this kriya. On Saa, touch the index fingers of each hand to your thumbs. On Taa, touch your middle fingers to your thumbs. On Naa, touch your ring fingers to your thumbs, and on Maa, touch your little fingers to your thumbs (see illustration below). To come out of the kriya, inhale very deeply, stretch your hands above your head, and then bring them down in a sweeping motion as you exhale.
