Smiling Buddha Kriya

Smiling Buddha Kriya

COMMENTS: “The story goes that a brahman found Siddhartha nearly starved and in an unhappy way, unable to walk after a forty-day fast. The brahman nursed him back to health, and when Siddhartha finally began to smile again, the brahman taught him this smiling buddha kriya. Siddhartha went on to become Buddha, who found enlightenment under the bodhi tree!” — Gurumukh Kaur Khalsa

“Historically, this is an outstanding kriya. It was practiced by both Buddha and Christ. You have likely seen this mudra (symbolic hand gesture) in paintings and statues. It is a gesture and exercise of happiness and it opens the flow of energy to the heart center. You needn’t worry about learning this kriya to be a Buddha or a Jesus — just learn it to be yourself! Be a little selfish for your higher consciousness. Master the technique and experience the state it brings. Then share it by creating beauty and peace around you.” — Gururattan Kaur Khalsa

POSTURE: Sit in easy pose, with spine straight and pull a slight jalandar bandh (neck lock)

MUDRA: Curl the ring and pinkie fingers in, pressing them down with the thumbs, remaining fingers extended straight up. Hold arms up to the sides, with elbows pushed back, creating a 30 degree angle between the upper arm and forearm. Forearms parallel with palms facing forward.

EYES: Close eyes and concentrate powerfully at the third eye point.

MANTRA: mentally chant “Sa, Ta, Na, Ma”.

Sa – Infinite
Ta – Life, existence
Na – Death
Ma – Light & regeneration

The whole mantra means “I am Truth”.

TIME: Continue for 11 minutes

TO END: Inhale deeply, exhale, and open and close your fists several times, and relax. “You will be smiling by the end!”.

BENEFITS: helps you to smile from the inside out; opens the heart gateway, to allow energetic blocks to clear, balance and flow once more; increases radiance and positivity; builds confidence; raises consciousness and assists the third eye to open for clearer intuition.
