Sit in the seven-point Vairocana posture, and, after thoroughly exhaling the stale air by means of the ninefold exercise, with your right hand touch your left knee, then your right knee, then your chest and finally click your fingers above vour right knee with a rhythm of four counts, each corresponding to, or at least not faster than, the heart beat of a healthy person when relaxed. Thus each of these complete cycles is equivalent to four counts. This method of marking time is better than looking at a watch or listening to a sound signal because it does not en^a^e the mind and does not hinder any subsequent concentration or visualization. For these reasons, it is necessary to train in this until it becomes completely natural.154
