Kundalini Yoga Venus Kriyas One Unit
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 One Unit:
Then standing back to back with your partner, clasp hands and touch heads in any relaxed manner (1).
Meditate on being one unit. You are Infinite consciousness, you are a mind only which is supporting the body. Normal breathing for 2 minutes.
Then seperate and bend over, legs straight, to touch the ground (2). Keep the hands on the ground for 1 minute.
(Originally given as 3-5 minutes back to back and 1 minute bending over.)
Complete the kriya with steps 5 and 6.
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.
