The following are excerpts from emails, letters, and personal statements
sent by people who have been practicing Bound Lotus. While everyones
experience of a regular practice is unique, it is interesting to hear what
others have discovered through their daily practice of Bound Lotus.
Unconsciously, we all try to run away from our challenges in life,
from the things we dont want to face in ourselves. Since I started doing
this practice, for half an hour every day I dont have that opportunity.
There I am, tied up, roasting like a chicken trussed on the grill. Wow. No
where to run to! All I can do is relax and surrender. And that surrender for
31 minutes every day has been the great gift of this Kriya
This practice has given me a sense that my Soul is divine, that my
body and mind have the blessing to serve it, and that yes- the power to heal
I had read Mahan Kirn's story about her experience with Bound Lotus,
but it wasn't until I began to personally work with her that I got the courage
to do it. She showed me great techniques to warm up, how to use props and
pillows, and most importantly, she helped me feel a deep sense of the possibility
to heal even the impossible.
First we named it Torture Pose, then Transformation Pose, because it
moved us on all levels. My chronic hip pain, which plagued me for a year,
slowly faded away. I released old emotional patterns and a lot of anger. I
became more intuitive and calmer and started feeling a deeper connection with
myself and who I truly am: infinite, godly, beautiful, and happy. This pose
changed my life so much that even the physical pain could not stop me from
doing it. It works miracles!
I have practiced various meditations for 40, 120, and 1,000 days, but
none have made me change so much and so quickly as Bound Lotus. It has taken
away pain and attachments that were really deep in my soul. I feel free, secure,
strong, and fearlessbut most of allhappy.
As I practiced each day I began to learn the meaning of each word in
the Ray Man Shabad. The Bound Lotus posture put me into a state where I began
to not only understand the meaning of the Shabad but experience the mantra
healing me on a cellular level. At times I would just listen to the Shabad
while in the posture. Other times the pain of being in the posture was so
great that I turned to the Shabad and sang with all of my heart. As I chanted
the resonance of the words not only got me through the Kriya but also gave
me a real sense of being cleansed down to the core. The resonance of the Shabad
became my own resonance as the words stayed with me throughout the entire
day and would come into my mind at just the right time to help me through
particular situations. I began to realize that the energy of the Shabad was
alive and had entered into my being and was working with me in every possible
way to bring about healing.
For me, the most important thing is to be properly warmed up so that
then the position becomes easy. I pray that my body, even into old age, will
allow me to do this position as the sublime states of physical and spiritual
well-being that it brings to me are truly profound.
Bound Lotus has helped my mind and emotions to have a stable projection
to be able to go through the darkest imaginable fears. It keeps connecting
me to who I am. There is no room to run away from any problem. I committed
to doing it for a year to stop feeling sad that my mom had died by suicide,
and it worked. You can pick any reason to do it and it will be great.
One month before Mahan Kirn came to Toluca, Mexico; I had Pneumonia,
and still had a very bad health problem when she arrived. I was praying to
God and Guru to bring me back to full recovery which I thought I was far from.
Then she taught us (my daughter and me) the miraculous Bound Lotus pose and
the beauties that Siri Singh Sahib had told her about it. I still havent
mastered it, maybe it will take me 10 more years and 20 pounds less, but it
doesnt matter, it made its effects right away on my lungs and my general
I have noticed this pose works in many levels: karmic, meridians, internal
organs, very deep sadness, or anger, etc., I have done it for 93 days now,
and I feel so great I think I will do it for the rest of my life.
At the beginning, when I was told how to do this Kriya I thought to
my self I will never be able to do that, thats only for those
yogis that are meditating the whole day up in the mountain But since
I heard wonderful things about it, I decided to try it out. The first month
was the most painful; I thought that my legs were going to break every time
I came out of the posture. I really thought that the pain was getting harmful,
but nothing catastrophic happened, on the contrary, I started feeling less
pain every time I came out of the posture. With this Kriya my mind gets trained,
concentration and patience take over. It might be for just a minute, but that
minute extends each day. I had a severe digestive problem since birth and
now this Kriya has done the job.
