Sodarshan Chakra Kriya

One of the most popular Kundalini Yoga Kriya’s is Sodarshan Chakra Kriya, which is why the article detailing this magnificent and powerful exercise, 3 Most Powerful Yoga Pranayamas, is always in the top 10 most read articles on Mastery of Meditation and Yoga.  Many of you who have been interested in this Kriya have requested clarification on the technique, and to help make everything crystal clear, I have now created a video demonstration of it .  So below you will find a free video of Sodarshan Chakra Kriya, and I am sure this will help you in learning and mastering this wonderful yoga technique.

Kundalini Yoga’s Supreme Kriya Sodarshan Chakra Kriya

Below I will go over this kriya briefly, but for all the details please read the article I mentioned above, as that is a comprehensive overview of this technique.

Sodarshan Chakra Kriya Overview and Benefits:

Sodarshan Chakra Kriya, comes from the school of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, and it is not Sudarshan Kriya, which comes from Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s Art of Living teachings.  This particular exercise also uses pranayama techniques, and combines with them the power of mudra and mantra to bestow it’s many profound benefits.

The pranayama used, is left nostril inhalation with breath retention, to stimulate the meditative right hemisphere of the brain.  The mudra used is Nasikagra Drishti, or nose tip gazing, to develop mental focus and activate the root chakra.  The mantra used is Wa Hey Guru, to take you beyond the ordinary mind.  And yes, it also uses powerful navel contractions to stimulate Kundalini and help clear blockages in your subtle energy channels.

The benefits of Sodarshan Chakra Kriya are physical, emotional and spiritual.  Perhaps best knows for it’s ability to bestow psychic powers, this kriya is also excellent for your physical health and well being.  It helps your digestive, respiratory and immune systems.  Also, the kriya is used to dissolve destructive patterns of behavior and help one overcome past traumas and hurts.

One important note I would like to make with regard to this yoga kriya, is that in it’s full (advanced) version it is really quite powerful, so please proceed gently with your practice of this exercise.  The most common issue with this kriya, is the creation of too much heat in the body, so you should be on the lookout for that, and use counter techniques if you notice this happening to you.  Start with the beginner’s version which I have demonstrated in the video as well, and move forward from there systematically. 


This video will become part of the free online video libraries that we have here on Mastery of Meditation and Yoga.  As Sodarshan Chakra Kriya is considered a Kundalini Yoga Meditaiton as well, this video will be included in the Free Guided Meditation Videos for Daily Practice series, and I will also be adding it to the Free Yoga Pranayama Videos.  Sodarshan Chakra Kriya is also already a part of Free Online Yoga and Meditation Classes, and specifically it is part of the Introduction to Kundalini Yoga and Meditation Class.

Once again please do refer to the main article on Sodarshan Chakra Kriya – Most Powerful Pranayama get all the details.

    Dear Sir,
    Namaste and I just want you to know you and my godfather are probably the closest thing I will get to a guru. He always believes in me and it keeps me going. I so appreciate what I have learned from you so far. I do want to become a teacher but I must finish graduate school and become better practiced as a beginner.
    Again, Thank you and please put me on your mail list.

    Hi Anmol

    I am a beginner. Please could you advise me on how to do the Sodarshan Chakra kriya if my left nostril is completely blocked? I suffer from nasal polyp on left nostril.

    Your help will be most appreciated. I cannot take in much air through left side of nose when doing this kriya. If I inhale less, or more gentle would my practice be less effective?

    Hi Meditation Books,

    Thanks for your comments and participation on the website. This Kriya is not Sudarshan Kriya, which is different. This is indeed Sodarshan Chakra Kriya. Some comments above explain the differences in detail.
