1. CAN 84- 12 Gururaj. Right now listen, Yoga Nidra is a Practice that is done in three stages. Now this is the first stage and once you get established in the first stage, I will start teaching you with the second part and then the final part of it. The purpose of Yoga Nidra is to be able to be totally aware of everything around you even while you are fast asleep. The whole idea is, the whole idea is to be consciously aware twenty four hours of the day of the Divinity that is within you. Now when people are fast asleep they are not aware of Divinity at all because the conscious mind goes asleep although the subconscious mind and the superconscious mind is continuously working. But the whole idea of Yoga Nidra is this, that even while you are fast asleep you are still consciously aware of that Divinity within you. Now let me tell you about myself. In St. Thomas’s Hospital. Professor Fennick who is a Professor Psychologist, Neuorologist and what have you they have sleep laboratories, they wired me up and it this was not only at St. Thomas’s Hospital but also at Gruute Schuur Hospital in Cape Town where they wired me up and they have monitors and machines, electrical machines that could show you what depth of sleep you are in and yet on the machines it was recorded that I was fast asleep, totally deep sleep and yet I was aware totally of everything that went around me, who came into the room, who came to check me, came to check the blood pressure and this and that and everything which nurses came in and what they spoke to each other and all that. Right. Now this is a very, very ancient art where you are totally aware for twenty four hours of the day of Divinity. Now if you can be totally aware for twenty four hours a day of Divinity, that would mean that you could be aware of Divinity for eternity and that is the way where you find that Isness, that oneness with everything around you. So we will start right and of course all of you have these slips, you must take home with you good. Now lay back very relaxingly and wiggle your toes, just wiggle them, just wiggle them, wiggle your toes we’re going to get all the tensions out of your bodies, wiggle your toes in whichever direction you like, just wiggle them, just wiggle them and one , two , three, four, five, six. The other direction whichever. One, two, three, four, five, six. Now rotate your ankles whichever direction you like, lift them slightly off the ground and rotate your ankles, rotate, rotate your ankles, rotate your ankles, one, two, three, four, five, six. Why only one, why not the other one, both, both. That’s it. Rotate the ankles, rotate them, rotate the ankles, we are getting all the tension away jus rotate your ankles. Now lift both legs and shake your calf muscles, right, lift them, shake the calf muscles until they feel loose. Come on, come on, come on, come on until they feel loose. Yeah. Shake them, shake them, get the tension out of the calf muscles and they’ll feel loose they will shake like jelly in a moment. You just carry on. Good. Right, right, right, right one and two and three and four and five and six and relax.

2. CAN 84- 12 Now lift your right leg as high as possible high, high, higher, higher - come on higher don’t bend your knees, higher, higher and down and number two, up again up, up, up, don’t worry about your dress I’m not looking, up, up, up, up, up and down.

Right number five, in again, in again, in, in, in, in, in, ah oh, its creaking, in, in, in, in, in, in, and relax . Ad the last time in, in, in, in, in, in, I can’t any more - relax. Right. (Laughter) Relax for a moment. You know I have a habit of giving you techniques that are so simple, very effective and I can do it very humorously, so make play of it. When you teach, a true teacher would know how to teach it give the proper things and yet make it into a play. Now pull in your abdominal muscles as much as you can , let your stomach touch your spine if you can in, yeah, yeah, relax. And the second time in, in, in, in, abdominal muscles abdominal muscles in, in, in and relax.

In again, in, in, in, in, in, in, in, (baby cries - yes my darling) in, in, in, in, in as much as possible - the more you do it the better for you and relax. And the last time in, in, in, in, in, in, in, in, in, and relax. Now just relax, just relax, just relax. Let your palms face upwards, just on your side just let them face upwards, upwards. Let your palms face upwards and relax. Now start watching your breathing. Do not concentrate on your breathing. Do not concentrate on your breathing just a gentle awareness of your breathing at the tip of your nose and you are relaxing, relaxing. Your breathing is slowing down gradually slowing down and you are going into a nice state of deep relaxation. Just relax and watch your breathing, watch your breathing. Do not concentrate just be aware of your breathing, just be aware of your breathing slowing down , calming down. If you fall asleep it does not matter, in a deep state of relaxation, a deep state of relaxation, just watch your breathing, just relax.

3. CAN 84- 12 No w very slowly sit up on your elbows. Do not rush, do not rush, do not rush. Sit up on your elbows. That’s it. Sit up on your elbows, there we are. Oh Chetan is gone to heaven. Now there we are. Now stretch your neck in the clockwise direction as far back as possible, as far back to the side, as far forward, as far back and on you go that was one. And two and three and four and five, take your time, take your time stretch them, stretch them, feel the creek in the neck. There we go and four and five and there we go and six, six, six, six, six, six. And heads are forward now when you’re ready, now anti clockwise the same thing one and two. I’ll start again one and two, three, four and five and six, six and a quarter, and there we are - relax. Now we’re going to do breathing. Now many people do not know how to breathe. So if you watch me I will show you how proper breathing is done. Now people normally breathe - oh this thing - thank you love. Do you know why all this absolute must be mixed up with the infinite and the - ah. Most people breathe there in their chests. That is not breathing. Your entire system is not oxygenated . Now by oxygenating your entire system, you are drawing through the breath what is called Prana, the vital force of energy, the vital universal force. The proper way to breathe is to breathe into the stomach first like this and then you push it up to the chest as high as possible, right, (Gururaj demonstrates the breathing) This way don’t mind my darling. That is called a yogic stomach , meditational stomach you breath into the stomach why you push the breath as high as you can. So what happens that your entire system is filled with that vital force of oxygen right or what we call Prana, oxygen is just a superficial word really. Okay. You’ve got the idea now. Where am I, I have to study my own notes. We do it six times while lying down, it doesn’t matter. Breathe in, into the stomach first and shift it up to the chest and out, and again, and again, and again, - take your time. I’m in no hurry and again and again. Fill the stomach and shift the breath up to the chest and out, and again. Start again to the stomach and up to the chest and up, up, up, as high up, fill the lungs and then out and the last time. Fill the stomach, fill the stomach, fill the stomach up and up, up, up, up, up fill the lungs as much as possible and out. Just relax. Now stretch your arms to the sides of you, stretch out, stretch out like a cross, stretch out.
