Yoga in GoaYoga in Goa


Purification is of two kinds : Antar-Dhauti (internal cleaning) and Bahir-Dhauti (external cleaning).

KUNJAL KRIYA :- (the practice of vomiting water)
Stand near a sink or toilet, or if the weather is warm, in a suitable place outside in the gardern or near an open drain. Drink at least six glasses of the prepared water one after the other, as quickly as possible, until it feels that the stomach cannot hold any more. It is most important to drink fast and not just sip the water.

When the stomach is full, the urge to vomit will occur automatically. Lean forward, keeping the trunk as horizontal as possible. Open the mouth and place the middle and index fingers of the right hand as far back on the tongue as possible. Gently rub and press the back of the tongue. This should induce the water to gush our from the stomach. If there is no expulsion of water it means the tips of the fingers are not far enough down the throat or that the tongue is not being pressed. The more the practitioner relaxes into the practice, the easier it will be.

During the expulsion of water the fingers may be removed from the mouth although this is not necessary. When the flow of water creases, again places the fingers in the mouth and repeat the process. Continue in this way until stomach is empty.

Plain water may be used on the advice of a yog teacher. Salt water, however, dissolves mucus and also inhibits the secretion of acid in the stomach, making it generally preferable, and a must for those suffering from excess mucus and hyperacidity.

Some people are unable to bring up the water at first. The water in the stomach will then simply pass through the system in the normal way. The expelled water might be discoloured, especially on the first few attempts. This can be caused by fermented food particles, bile or mucus from the stomach. When the stomach is completely clean the water will become clear.

Dant Dhauti (cleaning the teeth), Jihva Dhauti (cleaning the tongue), Karn Dhauti (cleaning the ears), Mula Sodhana Dhauti (cleaning the anus), etc. These are being done by you all everyday. I need not tell you much about these.
