Perfect Kundalini Sadhana – Do these 3 Practices Daily and Change your Life

There are over 3,500 Kundalini Yoga practices yet there are three practices that when done regularly, are all you ever need.

These three Kundalini Yoga practices do it all. They balance the five elements (tattvas) of the body, align the seven energy centers (chakras), and regulate the five basic energies (vayus) of the subtle body.

When all three are practiced daily as a Sadhana, life becomes transformed in ways that are unimaginable to a Kundalini Yoga practitioner. They provide a complete therapeutic approach to healing.

And having said all of that, they are the most basic and fundamental practices that create the foundation of Kundalini Yoga.

#2 Kirtan Kriya (Sa Ta Na Ma Meditation)

Yogi Bhajan said at Winter Solstice 1972 that a person who wears pure white and meditates on this sound current for 2-1/2 hours a day for one year, will know the unknowable and see the unsee-able. Through this constant practice, the mind awakens to the infinite capacity of the soul for sacrifice, service, and creation. Learn how to practice Kirtan Kriya here

#3 Sat Kriya

If you have time for nothing else, make this kriya part of your daily promise to yourself to keep the body a clean and vital temple of God. The rhythmic contraction and relaxation produces waves of energy that circulate, energize, and heal the body. Learn how to practice Sat Kriya here.

Surprised? Probably not. But very few Kundalini Yoga students and teachers do all three every day. If you do, then you are doing what I call the Kundalini Yoga Therapy Sadhana. Like every sadhana, there are various levels you can choose to engage these practices, from that of a beginner to a long-term practitioner, depending upon how long you choose to do them.

The main thing is to do the three practices daily as you can manage. Begin where you are and see where these can take you.
