KY meditation to handle a grave situation

What It Will Do for You

This is a very simple and ancient meditation to resolve conflict in us. If you do it, you'll enjoy it. Just see what changes you go through; just supervise yourself. It is a psychotherapy.
The moment the body knows the breath is out it starts adjusting at the highest rate of efficiency. The theory is that when the breath is out and the prana is not there the pranic body starts penetrating through the other bodies to create the combination. The computer must figure out how to allow you and your cells, which need x amount of oxygen, to survive.


if you have a most grave situation to handle, 5 minutes of this will take care of it.

How to Do It
Sit with the legs crossed. Press the hands on the breasts, palms in, fingers pointing toward each other. The hands are relaxed with the fingers extended and joined. This is a comfortable position with very littie pressure and no tension in the arms and hands.

Close the eyes 9/10 of the way. Deeply inhale for 5 seconds. Completely exhale for 5 seconds, and hold the breath out for 15 seconds.
Begin with 11 minutes and slowly build to 31 minutes.

Surya Namaskar or the Sun Salutation is a most complete series of postures. It is a very good exercise which takes only a few minutes to do and serves as a warm up routine before the practice of yoga asanas. It is one of the best home exercises requiring little space, only eight by three feet. Be sure to have enough space to lie down, and enough clearance to stretch the arms above the head while standing.

Surya namaskar consists of a sequence of twelve postures performed continuously and combined with synchronized breathing. Each position counteracts the preceding one producing a balance between flexions and extensions. The postures are as follows:

surya-namascar1 1. Namaskar - salute. Stand erect with feet together and join the palms in the center of the chest in the style of Indian salute and inhale. Then exhale and push the hands down straightening and lowering the arms until the elbows touch the sides. This standing pose is also known as tadaasana.
surya-namascar2 2. Chandraasan - crescent moon pose. Inhale and raise the arms above the head and extend the spine backwards arching the back from the waist and moving the hips forward. Let the eyes follow the hands while relaxing your neck.
surya-namascar3 3. Hastapadaasan - bending pose. Begin to exhale bending forward from the waist and place the hands on the floor besides each foot. Relax with your head and neck in a bending pose.
surya-namascar4 4. Surya darshan - sun gaze. Inhale and putting your weight on the hands stretch the right leg behind like a stick resting on the toes. Bend the knee and place it on the floor with your weight on the left foot and arch the spine backward. Lift the head and neck first up and then back. Roll the eyes up. The left foot remains between the hands.
surya-namascar5 5. Himalayan - mountain pose. Exhale and bring the left foot back in line with the right. Lift the hips up high like a mountain. Push the heels and head down and look at the toes with the head down between the arms.
surya-namascar6 6. Sashtang dandawat - lie down. Put the knees down first and then bring the chest down. See that eight parts of the body are touching the floor including two feet, two knees, two hands, the chest and the chin or forehead. Sashtang means eight limbs and dandawat means paying homage by touching the floor. Make sure the hips are slightly raised above the ground. Inhale and exhale in this position. Keep the feet together.
surya-namascar7 7. Bhujangaasan - cobra pose. Lower the pelvis and abdomen to the floor. Inhale and stretch the toes on the floor. Raise your head slowly up, arch the spine and neck and look up. Keep your legs together and the elbows alongside the body slightly bent and keep the shoulders down.
surya-namascar5 8. Himalaya aasan. Exhale and wiggle your toes forward allowing your feet to rest on the soles while your raise the hips as your did in number 5.
surya-namascar4 9. Surya darshan. Inhale and bring the right foot forward and assume pose number 4 exactly as before.
surya-namascar3 10. Hastapadaasan. Exhale and bring the right foot forward and assume pose number 3.
surya-namascar2 11. Chandraasan. Inhale and stretch up in a standing pose with your arms up and bend backwards like in pose number
surya-namascar1 12. Namaskar. Exhale and stand erect bringing the hands back to the center of the chest with palms together as in pose number 1.

Maurizio Cattelan

Yes, I know, this is a very old and famous work. But isn’t it still amazing? Bidibidobidiboo (1996), by Maurizio Cattelan…
I think, I must go and see it.
Does anybody know where it's been displayed at the moment, preferably in Europe?
