Sodarshan Chakra Kriya

Meditation for Transformation

This meditation is lauded as one of the greatest and most powerful of all exercises. It is a meditation for transformation. It realigns the relation between inner and outer universe and gives the ego perspective on the Soul. It promotes the purification of karma so we can become more efficient in our creativity and enjoy the surrender to the Divine Will of the Bigger Picture in the flow of life.

Vagus Nerve & Healing

The exercise releases healing energy from the Mantra “Wa He Guru” through the Nabh energy cemtre into the left, right and central channels and makes the Sodashan Chakra, the wheel of clear vision, turn. The rhythmic pumping movement of the navel brings an invigorating stimulation to the vagus nerve which connects the conscious and subconscious parts of ourselves.

The Sodarshan Chakra as a symbol can be seen on the index finger of pictures and statues of Lord Vishnu, the lord of transformation.

Bhagat Jai Dev

“The breath is drawn in through the left nostril,
it is held in the central channel of the Sushmanaa,
and exhaled through the right nostril,
repeating the Divine Name sixteen times.
I am powerless, my power has been broken.
My unstable mind has been stabilized,
and my soul has been adorned.
I drink in the Ambrosial Nectar.

Within my mind, I chant the Name of the Primal Divine, the Source of virtue.
My vision, that You and I are separate, has melted away.

I worship the One who is worthy of being worshipped.
I trust the One who is worthy of being trusted.
Like water merging in water, I merge in the Master.
Says Jai Dev, I meditate and contemplate the Luminous, Triumphant Divine.
I am lovingly absorbed in the Nirvana of the Divine.”

– Bhagat Jai Dev (ca 1170 – 1245) in Raag Maru in Siri Guru Granth Sahib
