Jala Neti


Neti with Salt Water


Fill the specially made vessel, the Neti Pot, with warm, salty water. The temperature of the water should be 38-40° C, with about 1 teaspoon of salt per 1 litre of water*. Bend the head over a wash basin and gently insert the spout of the Neti Pot into the right nostril (which as a result, closes it). Bend the head slightly forward and at the same time tilt the head to the left so that the water may flow out of the left nostril. Breathing takes place through the opened mouth. Pour approximately half the contents of the pot through the right nostril.

Now gently insert the spout of the Neti Pot into the left nostril and tilt the head to the right, so that the water may flow out through the right nostril. When finished, blow out all remaining water from both nostrils using the technique of Kapala Bhati Pranayama (see Hatha Yoga Kriyas 5).

To complete the purification of the nose, strongly expel the breath a further 3-5 times through each nostril while holding the other nostril shut (as when blowing your nose). It is important that the mouth remains open during this process to prevent water getting into the ears.

It is recommended that Neti be performed daily.


Has a positive influence on all sense organs in the head. Strengthens vision and relieves tired eyes (e.g. after working long hours at the computer). Neti can also be helpful in relieving headaches. Memory and concentration are improved. It is also beneficial for problems associated with the nasal and sinus cavities. Neti has a preventative effect against head colds and sinusitis. With regular use, Neti can also cure or at least ease hay fever and pollen allergies.


Do not practice if you have a severe cold or are suffering from ear ache.

Meditation in Rishikesh, India


Meditation is considered to be a subjective art, science and philosophy. The disciplines of Meditation are expounded through experience, and are given to humanity for the exploration and recognition of that hidden part of man which is beyond the awareness of the senses. Meditation is the art of studying the behavior of consciousness, which has three functions: cognition, conation and motion. It shows ways of understanding the functioning of the mind, and helps to quieten their movements, leading one towards the undisturbed state of silence which dwells in the very seat of consciousness. Meditation is thus the art and science of mental discipline through which the mind becomes cultured and matured.

Meditation on Inner-Silence (Antar Mauna)

This practice integrates a person through the journey of intelligence and consciousness from external to the internal. The practitioner learns to observe and think, and to intensify one’s effort until eternal joy is attained. The characteristic feature of this type of meditation is the maintenance of an uninterrupted flow of attention on a fixed point or region, without intervention or interruption. It makes you exercise your awareness, to make it flow with peace and poise.

Tantric Meditation

It helps to know the limitations and capacities of the body and mind. It prescribes techniques for the expansion of consciousness and liberation of energy whereby individual limitations are transcended and a higher reality experienced. It enables to perceive and experience the world within and around himself, to touch the divine joy of all creation.

Meditation on Emptiness (Soonya Meditation)

This practice brings about harmony between words and their meaning, and a new light of wisdom dawns. The memory of experience steadies the mind, and this leads both memory and mind to dissolve in the cosmic intelligence. It helps to have an uninterrupted awareness, in thought, word and deed. All sorrows and hatred are washed away and everlasting unalloyed peace comes to the seeker.
