Get ready for yoga nidra. Lie down in shavasana, the dead man’s pose, and make yourself as comfortable as possible. Keep your feet apart and let them flop a little sideways, arms slightly away from the body with the palms of your hands upwards.
Adjust your blanket, clothes and position, so that you can practise yoga nidra without moving and with no physical discomfort. Please close your eyes and keep them closed.
The practice of yoga nidra is the act of hearing and the act of feeling, these are the only important factors.
In yoga nidra you function on the level of awareness . . . plus the level of listening. In dreams you have no control, in yoga nidra you are the creator of the dream.
Say to yourself mentally, ‘I will not sleep, I shall only listen to the voice’ . . . repeat to yourself, ‘I will not sleep.’
Give yourself some time to become calm and steady . . . take a deep breath and as you breathe in, feel calmness spreading throughout the body.
As you are breathing out, say to yourself mentally, ‘R-e-l-a-x.’
Become aware of sounds in the distance . . . become aware of the most distant sounds that you can hear.
Let your sense of hearing operate like a radar beam . . . searching out distant sounds and following them for a few seconds.
Move your attention from sound to sound . . . without attempting to identify the source.
Gradually bring your attention to closer sounds . . . to sounds outside this building . . . and then to sounds inside this building.
Now develop your awareness of this room . . . without opening your eyes visualize the four walls, the ceiling, the floor, your body lying on the floor, see your body lying on the floor.

Become aware of the natural breath, become aware of the deep, natural, spontaneous breath, do not concentrate for this will interfere with the natural process.
Keep on listening to me, and know that you are breathing.
The practice of yoga nidra begins now . . . say mentally to yourself: ‘I am going to practice yoga nidra. I will not sleep. I am going to practise yoga nidra.’
This is the time to make your resolve.
Simple resolve . . . simple resolve. Please state your resolve clearly with feeling and awareness three times.
Rotation of consciousness
Rotate your consciousness through the different centres of the body . . . as quickly as possible; the awareness has to jump from point to point. Please repeat mentally the name of each part after me, and simultaneously become aware of that part. The practice always begins with the right hand . . .

Be completely aware of the respiration, navel to throat, throat to navel . . . do not try to force the breath, just awareness.
Maintain your awareness and at the same time start counting your breaths backwards as follows: ‘I am breathing in 54; I am breathing out 54; I am breathing in 53; I am breathing out 53; I am breathing in 52; I am breathing out 52.’ and so on from 54 to 1 or from 27 to 1. Count to yourself mentally as you follow the rise and fall of your breath from navel to throat and back again.
Total awareness of breathing and counting.
The breathing is slow and relaxed . . . please continue counting.

Imagine before you a transparent screen through which you can see infinite space . . . a space that extends as far as the eyes can see.
Concentrate on this dark space and become aware of any phenomena that manifests within it; whatever you see is the manifesting state of your mind.
Continue your awareness of this space but do not become involved, practice detached awareness only.

You walk between trees, beautiful trees . . . bare trees and trees with leaves, wide spreading trees and tall stately trees. There is a clearing between the trees . . . in the clearing is a small temple with an aura of light around it.
Go to the door, it is cool and dim inside . . . inside on the walls there are pictures of great saints. You sit down on the floor, close your eyes and become still . . . a sense of deep peace and harmony envelops you as the sounds outside fade into the distance.
Continue your awareness of meditation inside the temple . . . stay there for some time until peace and harmony pervade.
Bring your awareness back to chidakasha, bring your awareness to the dark space you see in front of your closed eyes.
Actually this space can also be visualized in front of the forehead, so if you want to explore it a little you can shift your gaze slightly upwards . . . but do not strain.
Watch the darkness that you see before you very carefully, with detachment, do not become involved.
Rest your mind in this warm and friendly darkness . . . if any subtle phenomena manifests, for example colours or patterns, simply take note of these and continue with your awareness.
If thoughts occur let them come and go but continue watching the dark space, continue this with detached awareness.
Now remember your resolve, your sankalpa. Repeat the same resolve you made at the beginning of the practice in the same words and with the same attitude. Repeat your resolve now three times clearly, with feeling and emphasis.
