Kundalini Yoga Venus Kriyas Fish Pose
Steps to follow:
1. Sit opposite your partner and begin with tuning in with the hands in prayer mudra (hands together before the chest), by chanting three times: "Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo" .
2. Then chant: "Aad Guray Namay, Jugat Guray Namay, Sat Guray Namay, Siri Guru Devay Namay" three times.
3. With hands still together, look into the eyes of your partner and bow your head in recognition of the God-consciousness in her or him.
4. When looking into each other's eyes, project love and divine light. Project humbly: for example, "I am nothing, you are great." This opens the heart to let love flow, the real love that Yogi Bhajan defines as "the experience of selflessness within oneself." If no mantra is specified you may chose any loving thoughts or positive affirmations.
Venus Kriya Fish Pose:
Sit on your heels with your knees against your partner's knees.
Lean back onto the top of your head with your arms relaxed at your sides.
Eyes closed. Go into deep sleep. The past will be forgotten. Open yourself and sleep.
Continue for 3 minutes. Then inhale, straighten your head, exhale, stretch your legs, and complete the exercise with steps 5 and 6.
(Originally given as a 31-minute kriya.)
5. Stretch up, twist from side to side, again bring hands together, look into the eyes of your partner, and say: "Thank you, Sat Nam", (that is Truth is my Identity), and bow deeply before your partner.
6. Massage each other if you feel like it, and then relax completely.
