In the context of the teacher training, i'm required to practice a 40 days kriya or meditation. This diary will record the experiences i'll get through.

Choosen set: Kriya for the magnetic field and the heart center (as publihed in Sadhana Guidelines, and later in the Aquarian Teacher, with some slight diffrences)

Reasons of this choice: I have been practicing this set for at least 90 days over the last year, with numerous interuptions, as the aim was not a 90 days sadhana. I first choosed it a month before the European Yoga festival last summer, merely as I found it convenient to train Breath of Fire, and keeping arms lifted over the head in preparation for the White Tantra. I eventually found it very pleasant in effect. Over time, this kriya became a part of me; it is also an experience of discovering a kriya in depth. As Yogi Bhajan wrote in "Sadhana Guidelines": "understand a kriya in depth, and you'll understand all of them". Or something like this.

My present understanding of this kriya This wonderful kriya is a spiritual lesson, it teaches you everyday a bit more about God, the Universe, the Creation, the Human, your soul. It is a travel through your chakras to get balanced and connected. It is a beautiful meditation. It is a long prayer.

Spiritual lesson When you read the book, and description of the set, it is just some kind of physical exercices. With practice, you discover something like the Paurees of the Japji Sahib. You experience what is taking you away from connexion, and what is connecting you. You are shown the Illusion of Maya, the reality of your longing, your place in the Universe, your divine nature. As yet, some exercises i understand, some i don't.
