This meditation was the shortest one so far. Just a bit over 5 minutes. It was a very focused meditation that’s sole purpose was to “program” the bagha.

The bagha, according to the author, is a deep, hidden secret in the meditative world. At one point in the program, he states that he was directed to not share this information for at least 50 years after he learned it. What’s funny though is that, for being such a deep hidden secret, just about any book you ever look at today almost invariably mentions this technique. It’s just never called the “bagha.”

What is this mysterious technique you ask? It’s pretty simple. It’s touching the tip of your tongue to the roof of your mouth. Maybe what makes it a secret is that the author stresses you have to do this technique with intent. Not really sure. I know that in most eastern philosophy books on meditation, especially the ones that focus on moving Chi (or Ki, Qi, Prana, Kundalini, etc.)

I forget what terminology they use, but the idea is the the chi in your body flows in a circle. If you look at a person from the side facing to the right, the chi flows up the spine, makes a loop in the head, and comes down the front of the body, through the Dan Tien, and ends at the base of the spine again. The circuit breaker for this circular flow is the roof of your mouth and tip of your tongue. When you actually touch the tongue to the roof of your mouth, it completes the circuit and chi can flow freely.

With that being the case, then it makes perfect sense that the “bagha” would be so important in these meditations. It increases the life energy that you have available to use. The more energy you have, the more able your spirit/soul is to be able to bring to you what you desire, whether that’s money, friends, knowledge, etc.

So, all in all, even though it’s short, this meditation is probably one of the more important ones. It’s going to provide the source energy to power the rest of the meditations.
