HOW TO PERFORM:

1. Bhramari:- means the goddess of a honeybee. (A two-minute exercise)
- Allow your eyes to be closed with the tips of your forefingers and close your ears too with the help of your thumb.
- Now slowly inhale deeply and while exhaling tries to make the 'hmmm' sound without opening the mouth (Also known as bee breathing technique).
- Try to maintain a focus on this “Hmmm” sound and feel its vibration deeply.
- Do this 3 times at a minimum.
Note: Before opening your eyes, you have to rub your hands gently for a minimum of 30 seconds which will create energy known as ‘heat energy’ and place your hands all over your body parts and then open your eyes slowly.
2. Aum (OM) chanting:- ( a three-minute exercise)
Aum is the universal sound. This mantra is known as the most effective method of meditation. This represents the power of the highest vibrations. One feels relaxed and stress-free after feeling its pure form of vibration. ‘OM’ is the short form of ‘AUM’.
- It activates our root chakra. This is done with Gyan mudra but to gain more benefit, this can be done with pran mudra as well. Doing meditation with these mudras helps us to increase our concentration power.
- Allow your eyes to close and make a sound with the word ‘O’ and feel its vibration.
- You’ll feel a sense of vibration in your abdominal area.
- Repeat this three times.
- You can end this by saying ‘Shanti’ 3 times.
Note: It purifies the environment and soothes our nervous system.
