sound*the*bell.*

7. Vighna Apaharaṇam - Removal of Obstacles.


 With the fists tap the temples with the thought that the Spiritual Nectar which has collected
there (according to Yoga Sastras) is now dissipating throughout the body.
śuklāṃ baradharaṃ devaṃ śaśi varṇaṃ catur bhūjam |
prasanna vadanaṃ dhyāyet sarva vighnopa śāntaye ||
The* AllNpervading* Lord* is* to* be* meditated* upon* for* the* removal* of* obstacles;* clad* in* white* garments,*
resplendent*like*the*Moon,*the*four*armed*and*cheerfulNfaced.*

8. Prāṇāyāma - Control of the Breath.


 This is done symbolically by folding the index and middle fingers into the palm of the right
hand and then closing the nostrils with the thumb and the ring finger while reciting the
following:

oṃ bhūḥ oṃ bhuvaḥ oguṃ suvaḥ oṃ mahaḥ oṃ janaḥ oṃ tapaḥ oguṃ satyam oṃ tat
savitur vareṇyam bhargo devasya dhīmahi | dhiyo yo naḥ pracodayāt || om āpo jyotir
raso’mṛtaṃ brahmabhūr bhuvas-suvarom ||
Oṃ*The*material*world,*Oṃ*The*realm*of*mind;*Oṃ*The*realm*of*light;*Oṃ*The*realm*of*vastness;*Oṃ*The*
realm*of*creative*delight,*Oṃ*The*realm*of*unobstructed*Will;*Oṃ*The*realm*of*the*highest*Truth;*Oṃ*may*
we*meditate*upon*that*Adorable*Light*of*the*Divine*Creator,*and*may*He*impel*our*intellect.*Oṃ*He*is*in*
the*water,*light,*flavour,*nectar*of*immortality*and*also*pervades*the*three*realms*N*physical,*mental*and*
spiritual.*He*who*is*denoted*by*Praṇava*is*all*these.*

 Thereafter do Śrotrācamanam by touching the right ear with the right hand (Gaṅga resides in
the right ear). Then make Brahmāñjali by placing the left hand upturned on the right thigh
and then clasping it with the right hand downturned.
