Kriya - Toning the Kidneys

1. Easy Pose. Apply Root Lock, chest high, chin in. Have
your hands grasping the waist. Twist left and right.
Inhale and exhale powerfully as you swing fully to the
left and to the right. Continue for 5 minutes.
This puts pressure at the kidneys and helps flush them

2. Back Platform Pose. (How to do it: Sit straight with

your legs stretched out in front of you. Place your
palms on the floor beside your hips with the fingertips
pointing toward your toes. Apply Root Lock and keep it
steady. Raise your chest and hips so that you are in one
straight line from chest to toes, while still keeping your
feet on the floor. Roll your thighs inward to keep the
sacrum stable.
Raise and lower your buttocks rapidly with Breath of
Fire. Continue for 3 minutes.
This gives relief to the kidneys.
3. Cobra Pose. (How to do it: Lie on your stomach with
your palms flat on the floor under your shoulders.
Apply Root Lock. Rotate the pelvis, elongate the lower
back and arch the chest upward as you straighten your
arms. Lift up until you are balanced on the palms of
your hands and the tops of your thighs. Keep the front
of the thighs rolled together to protect the sacrum and
keep your feet touching. (It might be helpful to place a
block between the thighs. The thighs have to press
together to keep the block in place and this makes it
difficult to compress the sacrum as you arch backward.)
The Root Line in Cobra is directly from the navel point
into the ground. The shoulder blades move down the
back to leverage the lifting of the chest. As the chest
rises, the arms can straighten out. Only rise up as far as
you can go without compressing your lower back. Keep
your elbows by your sides. Do not let them fan out.)
(If you have a problem with Cobra while keeping your
pelvis on the ground, lift the pelvis off the ground.
More flexible, advanced students can leave the pelvis
on the ground.)
In rhythm with Breath of Fire, raise and lower yourself
from flat on your stomach into Cobra. Breathe heavily.
Continue for 1 ½ minutes.
4. Easy Pose. Apply Root Lock. Lift the chest up, chin in.
Meditate on the sound of “Ek Ong Kar.”

(Yogi Bhajan played the gong.) Concentrate at the third
eye point and the navel. See the energy flow between
the two points. Two minutes.
Chant loudly, “Ek Ong Kar Sat Gur Prasad Sat Gur
Prasad, Ek Ong Kar” all in one breath. Do this for 6
“This is the mantra that works like the “gutka” on the
Persian prayer wheel changing the direction of the mind
from negative to positive.
Just repeat it five times if you ever want to switch your
mind from negative mind to positive mind.”
— Yogi Bhajan

Comments: Yogi Bhajan taught this kriya on October 24, 1984.

Meaning of the Siri Mantra:

Ek Ong Kar Sat Gur Prasad, Sat Gur Prasad, Ek Ong Kar.
God and We are one.
I know this by the Grace of the True Guru.
I know this by the Grace of the True Guru.
That God and We are One.

This mantra is a gutka shabd — one that reverses the mind. It is the essence of the Siri Guru. If the
mantra is chanted just 5 times, it will stop the mind and put it into reverse gear. The Siri Guru will sit in
your heart. It can stop anything negative. It is so strong that it elevates the self beyond duality and
establishes the flow of spirit. This mantra makes the mind so powerful that it removes all obstacles. Its
positive effects happen quickly and last a long time. It needs to be chanted with reverence, in a place of
reverence. This mantra brings great intuition to the practitioner. After chanting this mantra, anything
you say will be amplified and created with great force. So have a positive projection and do not say
anything negative for awhile.

Normally when you chant mantras correctly, you benefit, and when you chant them incorrectly, they
don’t have any ill effect. But if you chant this mantra incorrectly, it has a backlash. Normally we invoke
the sacred before practicing this mantra. Chant the Mul Mantra or the Mangala Charn Mantra before
practicing it. (Excerpted from The Aquarian Teacher, p. 84).

meditate on the sound of 'Ek Ong Kaar''
Concentrate at both the third eye
point and the navel and on the flow of
energy up and down between these off
points. 4 minutes.

Then begin to chant as loud as you can:

''Ek Ong Kaar Sat Gur Prasaad Sat
Gur Prasaad, Ek Ong Kaar'' all in one
breath. 2 Minutes.
(Yogi Bhajan played the gong
throughout this entire meditation.)

To finish: inhale deeply, hold the

breath for 15 seconds, and then keep
the breath held another 10 seconds while
you move the navel. Exhale and relax.

Comments: Those for whom God is the security, they shall always
merge in God.
