Kirtan Kriya – form of meditation – Amen Clinics

Dr. Amen’s favorite form of meditation is called Kirtan Kriya.

This twelve-minute meditation involves chanting the following simple sounds—“saa” “taa” “naa” “maa”—while doing repetitive finger movements.

  • Touch the thumb of each hand to the index finger while chanting “saa.”
  • Touch the thumb of each hand to the middle finger while chanting “taa.”
  • Touch the thumb of each hand to the ring finger while chanting “naa.”
  • Touch the thumb of each hand to the pinkie finger while chanting “maa.”
  • Repeat the sounds for two minutes aloud.
  • Repeat the sounds for two minutes whispering.
  • Repeat the sounds for four minutes silently.
  • Repeat the sounds for two minutes whispering.
  • Repeat the sounds for two minutes aloud.
  • When you finish, sit quietly for a minute or two, and try to merge your calmed mind and body with your regular mode of being.
