Besides the practice that we have just described for vishuddhi, you should also continue to do practices that increase your sensitivity to mooladhara, swadhisthana, manipura and anahata chakras and kshetrams. This will maximize your sensitivity for kriya yoga practices to be introduced in Book III.
If you can easily locate the other chakras and kshetrams then you should practise the method of chakra shuddhi4. That is, you have to chant Aum in time with the pulse 21 times at each of the chakras and kshetrams. Preferably you should also use a mala, since this will be a valuable preparation for kriya yoga practices.
If you have difficulty in locating the centres then continue to practise the specific techniques prescribed for each centre in the previous four lessons.
