We need to understand through compassion—instead of passion—or we will misunderstand. Passions are like tides coming and going. The mind can't be steady because the tidal waves of passion will always take the mind up, down, and all around.
Compassion is like a trade wind carrying you across an infinite ocean. Turn your passions into compassion by feeling others are you and you are others. Remove the barriers of the ego self and feel the self in all. It's only when you come from your heart that your words can penetrate every heart. When a human being becomes totally a being of compassion, then your words can shake every heart.
Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with your spine straight. Mudra: Cross the Saturn Fingers (middle fingers) over the Jupiter fingers (index fingers) of each hand. Place thumbs on mounds of Mercury, which is just at the base of the pinkie.
Mantra: Sing with a lyrical version of Rakhay Rakhanahaar. Rakhay rakhanhaar aap ubaariun Gur kee pairee paa-eh kaaj savaariun Hoaa aap dayaal manho na visaariun Saadh janaa kai sung bhavjal taariun Saakat nindak dusht khin maa-eh bidaariun Tis Saahib kee tayk naanak manai maa-eh Jis simrat sukh ho-eh saglay dookh jaa-eh Jis simrat sukh ho-eh saglay dookh jaa-eh
Movement: On the first line of the mantra, bring the hands up and press the left hand over the right at your heart centre. On the second line of the mantra, lower the arms so the wrists rest on the knees. Continue alternating in this way, but keep the hands at the chest for the last line that repeats twice. Then briefly lower and raise them again for the first line.
