There is a definite relationship between the sense of smell and the mooladhara chakra. This is clearly stated in various yogic scriptures and one can also experience it for oneself. During the previous 7 kriyas mooladhara chakra has been gradually stimulated. This heightens one's sense of smell. One becomes aware of very subtle smells.


The word tadan means 'beating' and kriya means 'technique'. Therefore, a direct translation is 'the beating technique'. A more descriptive name is 'beating the kundalini'.

This is a very simple yet powerful kriya. It brings almost instant bliss, but it must be practised in the correct sequence of kriya yoga.

This is the last of the kriyas that are intended to induce pratyahara (sense withdrawal); the next group of kriyas are intended to induce dharana (mental one-pointedness).
