Advice for beginners

You are not likely to master vastra dhauti on the first day. It may take a few days or even a few weeks before you are able to swallow the cloth. It is strange but true that the less you try the easier it becomes; the more you relax the more easily the cloth will go down the throat. If you forget that the cloth is a piece of cloth and merely swallow, then the cloth will automatically drop into the stomach. Do not hurry, take your time.

Practise for about ten minutes whether you can swallow the cloth or not. Practise every day. After a few days you will become accustomed to the cloth entering the throat. When your mind accepts the idea then it is a short step to mastering the technique.
