Day 6 - Today we are heading to the highest saltwater lake in the world, Pangong Lake at 14,000 ft. It's a five hour drive from Leh and we are camping there for two nights.
This meditation is for when you are faced with serious challenges. The mantra is called Guru Gaitri Mantra, a classic mantra that is noted for the capacity to break through deep-seated blocks. The eight mantras are aspects of the Divine and is translated as Gobinday (Sustainer), Mukanday (Liberator), Udaaray (Enlightener), Apaaray (Infinite), Hareeang (Destroyer), Kareeng (Creator), Nirnaamay (Nameless), Akaamay (Desireless). To the medtation, sit in easy pose with a straight spine. Interlace the fingers inside plams. Place the mudra at the solar plexus, palms facing up, fingers pointing up. The thumbs are straight and point forward. The eyes are open one-tenth of the way.
Chant the Guru Gaitri mantra as fast as possible so that the words are indistinguishable. Continue for 11 minutes.
