61 Points – Sushanti Meditation – Perfect Calm

Sushanti Meditation also known as Shavayatra, 61 Points or Perfect Calm, is a wonderful practice that promotes profound relaxation and a sharp mind.

This simple and powerful meditation asks that you systematically move your attention through specific points of your body. You can bring light into each point or simply count up the numbers.

 

The conscious connection of the brain to the different parts of the body in a sequence can be a playful challenge in the beginning because the busy mind is eager to distract you and find some mundane thing to disrupt you.

As you become skilled at staying on track with the systematic rotation, you will feel a sense of unshakable inner peace that lasts for hours.   With practice, this gentle meditation will support you even on the most challenging of days.

To get the best out of this meditation be aware of the gentle rise and fall of the body. Invite light. If you lose your way, simply smile, keep going and see where you end up. I recommend 1 to 3 rounds once per day. Morning, noon or night.

Shanti!
