Sit in easy pose and do this mudra with both hands at the same time. First touch the thumb and pinky (Mercury finger), then touch the thumb and middle (Saturn) finger, and then touch the thumb and index (Jupiter) finger. Continue this sequence but do not touch the thumb and ring (Sun) finger.
Keeping your legs in easy pose, lift and release both knees at the same time as you touch each finger with the thumb. Legs move up and down like a butterfly flapping its wings. Keep the arms bent near the torso, palms toward the body as you play the fingertips and lift the knees.
Chant "Humee Hum, Brahm Hum" along with Nirinjan Kaur's tape. Chant touching the tip of the tongue to the upper palate. When properly chanted in this manner, it will sound strange. One word of the mantra corresponds with one touch of finger and thumb.
Focus: Eyes are focused at the tip of the nose.
Time: 31 Minutes
This meditation can be taught to children in either their third or fourth year. The practice time can be adjusted to suit their attention span.
