Mul (Mool) Bandh

Mul Bandh, the Root Lock, is a powerful contraction of muscles and stimulation of energies that helps to redirect sexual energy into creativity and healing energy. The Root Lock is often applied at the end of exercises and meditations, and helps to seal the healing and uplifting effects and stabilize your senses. Root Lock is a smooth motion that consists of three parts.

To apply the Root Lock:

Sit with a straight spine

Contract the anal sphincter and feel the muscles lift upward and inward.

Keep these muscles contracted and then contract the area around the sex organ. (You will experience a slight lift and rotation inward of the pubic bone that is like trying to stem the flow of urine.)

Contract the lower abdominal muscles and the navel point towards your spine.

Apply these three actions together in a smooth, rapid and flowing motion, and hold.

The root lock can be applied with the breath in or out and is sometimes held during and throughout a meditation or exercise. This can be done because the muscles used in the root lock are not the muscles used for breathing or the movement of your upper torso.

The root lock blends the energies of Prana and Apana, the energies that generate and eliminate, respectively.

By mixing these energies, a pressure is created that helps direct your energy upward and through your physical body and your chakras in a moderate, stable and balanced way.

The Chakras

The Knot of Brahma - When you apply the Mul Bandh consciously and correctly, it is said to "untie the knot of Brahma". The Knot of Brahma is located at the first chakra, at the base of your spine. When the knot is untied and the energy is flowing smoothly, you feel balanced and free from your attachments to form and the senses.

The Great Lock - Maha Bandh - is the application of all three locks at the same time, with your breath held out. Maha Bandh is practiced after many meditations, exercises and pranayam exercises, in various postures, and with different mudras (yogic hand positions) and mantras.

When the great lock is applied consciously and correctly, the body is said to enter into a healing state of balance. Yogic tradition tells us that the healing effects of this lock may help with menstrual cramps, poor circulation and preoccupation with mental fantasies.

We must apply discipline to work through the blocks that keep us from moving towards consciousness and kindness. The practice of these locks can help. Apply them consciously, whenever indicated, and feel the effects. Find Yoga Classes In Your Area.

Kundalini Yoga Basics

Yogi Bhajan

Tuning In - Each Kundalini Yoga session begins with the repetition of the Adi Mantra ... Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo. Pronounced Onnnggg Namo … Gooroo Daaaaayyvv Namo.

Kriya - Kriya literally means a "completed action" utilizing a combination of posture, mantra, breath and movement - designed to bring about a specific effect on the body, mind, and consciousness. A Kriya may be one specific exercise or sequence of exercises.

Pranayam - The practice of Kundalini Yoga involves the use of various yogic breathing techniques beginning with conscious long deep breathing.

Meditation - The Practice of Kundalini Yoga Meditation involves the use of various mantras, mudras, postures and yogic breathing techniques.

Sound and Mantra - Kundalini Yoga practice uses both sound and mantra, audible or silent. Mantra is a syllable or combination of syllables that help focus the mind.

Deep Relaxation - Deep relaxation is as important as exercise or meditation. Deep relaxation helps release stress from both the mind and the body adjusts the glandular balance and allows the body’s natural self-healing energy to function, resulting in mental clarity and physical ease. "When you’re at ease, there’s no dis-ease." -- Yogi Bhajan

Projection Prayer - After adjusting your body and mind and experiencing your connection to spirit, you take time to concentrate your newly focused energy toward peace, healing, and love – positive thoughts. "Prayer is when you talk to God. Meditation is when God talks to you." -- Yogi Bhajan

Practicing the Locks

Sit on the heels and spread the knees apart. Put the palms on the thighs.

1. Inhale, exhale and apply the root lock then inhale and relax it.

2. Inhale deeply, exhale completely and apply the diaphragm lock. Then relax the lock and inhale gently.

3. Then apply the neck lock and relax it.

4. Repeat exercises 1, 2 ,3 in a continuous sequence. The body will sweat, the breath naturally goes out on the first two locks. Continue for 3 minutes. This will give you the ability to distinguish the locks from each other. You will also develop a sense of how the energy moves in the pranic nadis (nerve channels) and spine.

Kundalini Rescue

There is no question in my mind that Kundalini Yoga is the most powerful personal transformation technique on the planet. I should know - I have practiced it and many others for nearly four decades!

The danger comes by mixing ignorance and power. Simply said, anything with such huge power as the Kundalini must be completely understood to be able to be completely controlled. Otherwise the results can be catastrophic.

I have recently seen a number of Kundalini Yoga students who are having powerful but disturbing experiences during or after the practice of Kundalini Yoga. Their symptoms are one or all of the following:

Extreme heat at the base of the spine or moving around the spine
Bright or flashing lights
Strong electrical sensations throughout the body
Strong humming sound heard inside.

So what is their problem?!! Nothing. You are practicing Kundalini Yoga, that is what is supposed to happen. These are the classical signs of the Kundalini being activated. This is a blessed moment the Kundalini is about to rise, your life is about to take a huge step towards perfection.

Nowhere in Yogi Bhajan's published yoga manuals or teacher training manuals is the Kundalini activation – Kundalini Raising and the possible side effects – discussed.* The result is that when such an event takes place the students are not properly prepared for it and are often overwhelmed frightened and confused by it. And since most Kundalini Yoga teachers have never had activation or raising they are just as unaware as the student!!! This is exactly why many believe Kundalini and Kundalini Yoga to be dangerous.

Besides the above mentioned symptoms, there are numerous hallucinations, which may occur during a normal Kundalini activation, many of which can be very pleasing. But if you don’t know the meaning of what you are experiencing it can be at least stressful.

When activation occurs, with the associated side effects mentioned above, the Bhram Nadi (the central of four nadis held within the Shushmna) must be opened to allow the Kundalini to rise through it. This is done by uniting the Shushumna and Alambousa Nadis through contraction of Mul Bandh -- Maha Bandh. It is only through the Bhram Nadi that the Kundalini will travel up the full length of the spine and eventually reach the cerebral cortex. Which is its final destination and where the transformation of consciousness takes place.

Giving any person who has the money the right to teach such powerful techniques as Sat Kriya, Sodharshan Chakra Kriya, etc., without giving the complete Vidya (knowledge) to them is like training a chimpanzee to drive a car and then giving them a Ferrari.

In a rush to popularize, commercialize and profit from the blessed power of the Kundalini, those who market and live of Kundalini Yoga, have omitted vital information about its safe practice.

*NOTE: Ask your Kundalini Yoga teacher about Kundalini activation and rising before you practice with them! -- Source.

Tratakam Meditation

Tratakam is the meditative technique of gazing. Gazing with the eyes is recognized as a powerful method for focusing life force energy. In the yogic Scripture it says, "even a glance from the eyes of a holy man can cure mental and physical imbalances." Gazing with the eyes is recognized as a powerful technique for focusing pranic energy. The pranic energy gives life to the atom, all material, and the mind.

Tratakam Gaze
Gaze into these eyes for 3 minutes for affect.

The laws of regulation and interaction of pranic energy form the basis of most occult sciences, and explain many obscure passages in the scriptures. The general technique of gazing is called Tratakam (Trataka, Tratakum). Applying Tratakam to a particular image of a teacher is Guru Yoga. The stories surrounding the practice of gazing are so many, the simple truths have become obscured. If one reads the old literature of yogic and mystic lore that was published around the turn of the century, there are descriptions of yogis gazing at the sun all day.

This ancient literature describes a glance that hypnotizes, removing one's will, and eyes that shine beams of light for miles. In many modern movies, the power of eye communication is used as main technique to represent emotional states. At the base of all this, there is an exciting and different understanding of man, energy, and the nature and function of vision.

More about Tratakam.
