Happy Buddha Meditation Technique
Meditation for Joy & Positivity
Spring is finally here, a long winter is winding down and nature is eagerly waiting for warm, sunny days and refreshing, starry nights. This is a time for much celebration, and so to usher in this new season I thought it would be great to introduce the uplifting and joyous Smiling Buddha Meditation.
It is reputed that this meditation was prescribed to the Buddha, by a rishi (saint) to help him regain his positive mind and recover emotionally after a long stretch of meditation and fasting. Although, this meditation appears to be a simple technique, it is actually incorporating many important aspects of Kundalini Yoga to achieve it’s results.
The meditation uses, the power of mantra (sound vibrations that create corresponding states of consciousness), mudra (hand positions that create certain energy flow in the subtle body), eye positions, mental focus and the science of spirit to bestow it’s wonderfully uplifting benefits.
Smiling Buddha Kundalini Yoga Meditation will be the 13th entry in our ongoing and popular Free Online Guided Meditation Techniques E-book. As it is also considered a Kundalini Yoga Kriya, I will include it in the Free Illustrated Kundalini Yoga Exercises E-Book as well.
If you are suffering from the winter blues and depression (SAD), this is a great technique for you to do. Also, if you are aware of the 10 Bodies of Light Numerology and have been told you need to work on your Positive Mind (third body of light), then too this is the meditation of choice for you to do.

- Bring your hands to the side of your shoulders (about 8-12 inches away), palms facing forward. Your elbows will be bent and your index and middle finger will be pointing straight up.
- Close your eyes and apply Sambhavi Mudra. To do this, turn your eyes upwards such that you are looking through the center of your forehead. Do not strain when applying this mudra. If your eyes tire, release the mudra and then re-apply it once ready.
- SMILE. Don’t forget this step .

- Throughout the meditation make a conscious effort to relax, be at ease and be positive. Allow the mantra to take over and feel great happiness, peace and joy within you as you chant silently.
- To end, rub your palms together vigorously and gently place them over your eyes, allowing the warmth to sooth and comfort them.
- You can start with 3 minutes and work you way up to 31 minutes.
