At the end of swaroopa darshana your body should be as stiff and motionless as a rock.
Immediately start linga sanchalana. Keep your eyes closed.
Feel that your whole body is inhaling and exhaling.
As you inhale imagine that every part of your body is taking in air.
With exhalation, air is expelled through every cell, every limb of your body.
Continue to imagine this process for a short time.
You will notice that your body seems to expand with every inhalation and contract on eveiy exhalation.
Yet, at the same time, your body, your physical body, remains as stiff and immovable as a stone statue.
It is a peculiar feeling; how can the body remain rigid yet simultaneously contract and expand? The answer is simple ... it is your astral body that is expanding and contracting, not the physical body. Observe this process.
Gradually the rhythmical expansion and contraction will become more intense and more pronounced.
The extent of expansion, however, will remain the same but the degree of contraction will become more pronounced. Be aware of this process, synchronized with breathing.
Expansion takes place to a constant limit, but contraction is becoming more and more, until eventually the astral body reduces to a single point oflight.
Your whole being seems to contract to one tiny, concentrated point.
When you have this experience, discontinue this kriya.
KRIYA 20: DHYANA (MEDITATION) Dhyana means meditation. It does not mean pretty or nice thoughts or psychic pictures; it is a transcendental state of being, the experience of which will transform your whole life.
Actually, dhyana is not, and cannot be a kriya technique, since it is impossible to practise dhyana. The word kriya implies that you practise something and in dhyana you do not practise anything. You do not create or make the state of dhyana - it happens by itself, spontaneously, when your mind is ready and receptive. Therefore, the name of this kriya is really a misnomer; it should be called 'the preliminary to dhyana'.
