Lalita Devi Inner Yoga Practice
Below is a guided inner yoga practice (audio).
We will practice with Lalita Devi’s bija mantra (root mantra)
The mantra HREEM is the mantra of manifestation. Each letter represents the different stages of manifestation,
from the formless to the subtle to the physical, and all these stages together are the Goddess.
Chanting this mantra will align you with Lalita devi Shakti,
a primordial creativity and the power to manifest the vision of your heart.
In this practice, we place the mantra HREEM inside the pelvis, heart and head.
Instead of visualizing or witnessing these areas of your body, ride on the sound to the inside of your body.
Feel the physical sensation as the sound vibrates inside the body.
We will follow the sound even deeper than the body into the subtle vibration of Self awareness
inside the body, and even deeper; into the Field of Consciousness permeating all.
The word “mantra” comes from two Sanskrit words: “manas”, meaning mind, and “trai”, meaning to “free”.
In the literal sense then, mantra means to free your mind.

If you have time, do the Goddess rinse and/or the Kundalini Awakening Dance before sitting down.
You will need a place to sit undisturbed for approximately 24 minutes.
Begin with finding a comfortable position, and settle your awareness inside.
In this guided practice, we begin chanting HREEM 3 times long, and then 108 times short.
After that you will continue chanting the mantra in your own way throughout the practice, until you are guided to let the mantra fall silent.
After the practice sit or lay down and rest.

So gather close the wisdom in your bones.
Honor the fire in your belly.
Bow before your holy body.
Listen to its voice.
Remember the language you were born knowing.
Remember how the body knows.
