Hatha Yoga Kunjal Kriya

This is a technique for cleaning the digestive tract from the stomach to the mouth. It involves drinking warm, salty water until the stomach is full and then voluntarily expelling it through the mouth. This may seem a little repulsive to some people, especially if done intentionally, but actually kunjal kriya is a simple practice and all that is vomited is salty water containing impurities from the stomach. As such there is no unpleasant taste, smell and nausea accompanying the action as there is during times of sickness. It is these uncomfortable sensations that all of us find repulsive. Without these disagreeable factors the practice of kunjal kriya becomes simple and not at all unpleasant.

The biggest obstacle in trying this practice for yourself is your mental concept of what is involved. Try to throw away your prejudices and read this chapter with an open mind. Then attempt the practice once yourself, either alone or under the guidance of a yoga teacher. If you find from personal experience that what we say is true, then you will more than likely continue to do this kriya regularly.
