I have had the blessing to hear Dr. Michael Joseph Levry talk about the power of this mantra and studies being done on mantra and brainwaves. I was at a live Naam class with this beloved teacher one evening in Arizona in December, 2017. One day shortly after that talk, I was having a particularly hard time shifting my attitude and my head felt foggy, irritable and I was under some stress to get back to my normal, happy state. I suddenly remembered this mantra explanation and immediately knew it was what I needed! I popped it on, got into *Silver Triangle Mudra. I did the 15 minutes of the track and literally felt like a miracle had happened within me. I felt light, I began seeing everything more clearly and I was full of bubbly, laughing playful energy so that my significant other had to ask what I did in my practice to cause the shift!
Try this especially if you have stress of any type in your life. I use it a lot when I do my in-home Naam Yoga Therapies with children and notice their attitude about dinner, tidying up, cooperation or moodiness shifts right away and laughter and easy going mood returns for all of us. I also used it on a long car ride heading to and returning from vacation or to get back to happy being out of my normal routines in my recent vacation. You can do any mantra relatively quietly so don’t be shy, but also be inventive! It is worth doing anything new so you can feel comfortable and be in the frame of mind to enjoy yourself and those you care about, your work or anything you have on your plate for the day.
A nice hand posture which directs energy I mentioned above is *Silver Triangle Mudra which creates healing energy in the body and system for any purpose. It is very good for the kidneys and re-balancing the kidney meridian in the body which is responsible for healthy eye sight and fear.
Silver Triangle Mudra: Press the Thumb of each hand to the pad of your ring and pinkie finger. Index and Middle fingers are fairly straight.

Take a deep breath and make the sound small and nasally to make it through the whole verse in one breath. It takes time so be patient and sneak in breaths as needed. It is all ok! You will get a fantastic cardio experience and strengthen your lung capacity which is explained further in the mantra write-up about the mantra below.
For an ideal experience do this mantra and mudra for a minimum of 3 minutes
Work your way up or continue for 5, 7 or 11 minutes until you reach the way you would like to feel! Repeat as needed! Begin your day with this mantra and have your own experience! How does your day start and feel? Repeat this mantra after 4pm and dinner time and see how it can revitalize you and get you ready for a nice evening.
Make any experiences with yoga, breath and mantra Joyful! Living joyfully and trying out new things with a playful attitude makes all the difference. But no matter your approach, you will FEEL a difference with this one!
