Taught by Yogi Bhajan December 14, 1977
Sit comfortable in meditation pose and cup the hands together at heart level, palms up, upper arms pressed against rib cage, eyes 1/10 open and allowed to close. Feel that you are asking for a blessing from God. Keep making your spine straighter -(a crooked spine will make one crooked, even in prayer).
Feel that something is dripping to you from the heavens: -the light of God, the flow of life, the supreme energy -whatever you believe in. Jesus Christ is sending you cookies! Or Moses. Or Santa Clause. It doesn't matter.
Feel something is dropping from above into the cup of your hands. Lower yourself into this hallucination until you start feeling it as a reality. Get into your very simplicity - just ask for simple grace. Do it for just 3 minutes - it cannot be done for a long time. But do it as best you can.
Note: There is a slightly different version of the same meditation - time unlimited and the following comments: Gurprasad means "gift of the Guru". As you practice this meditation, feel yourself showered by all the blessings of heaven - health, wealth, happiness, your ultimate caliber and capacity. Just let it happen. Fill your heart and soul with all the bounties of nature. Simply meditate on the boundless flow of the Universal Soul, and feel a deep inflow of spirit. This is a very restful posture. The subtle pressure against the meridian points in the rib cage gives immediate relaxation.
Comments by Yogi Bhajan: Let us become old, old human beings, centuries old. We used to draw ourselves onto our knees - we never used to stand up in our cave and we had some kind of hair things where we used to sleep, curled up like a dog. Have you seen a dog sleeping? That was the human way of sleeping. Early in the morning a human being would not get up -he would crawl on his knees, come out and sit on his heel or stretch his legs forward. I'm telling you the original, comfortable way of prayer. In Islam they still do it. In their prayers, this prayer exists: At first, everything is an imagination, like a blueprint. Then you start feeling the experience and it becomes the reality. That's the difference between imagination and reality. Just be simple. You are not simple. That is why it is hard for you to concentrate.
