Nauli Kriya - How to Do, Precautions and Benefits

    Nauli Karma or Nauli Kriya or Laukik Kriya is one of the Shat Karma (the yogic procedure done for cleansing of the body), which is a kind of abdominal massage which provides exercise to abdominal viscera and abdominal muscles. Nauli is derived from two words Nau means boat and li means ‘to adhere to or ‘to grasp’. Therefore, Nauli is the procedure in which Sadhaka (practitioner) make their body tubular shape in the middle of the abdomen, by bending forward and pushing the abdomen backward, In this procedure, abdominal organs movement is done transversally and vertically like the waves (Lehar) movement. Nauli Kriya is mentioned as Laukik Kriya in Gheranda Samhita.

    अमन्दावर्त वेगेन तुन्दम सव्यापसव्यत: । 

    नतांसो भ्रामयेदेषा नौलि: सिद्धै: प्रचक्षते।। 

     

    नौलिकर्म- यदि कोई साधक अपने कन्धों को नवा (नीचा) कर उदर को वाम एवं दक्षिण की ओर शीघ्रता के साथ घुमावे तो उसकी इस क्रिया को सिद्धयोगी नौलि कर्म कहते हैं।। 

     

    Nauli karma – If a seeker makes his shoulders down (lowered) and moves his abdomen towards left and south with speed, then his action is called Siddha Yogi Nauli Karma.

     

    Hath Yoga Pardipika, Dwitya Updesha, 34

     

    मन्दाग्नि सन्दीपन पाचनादिसन्धायिकानन्दकरी सदैव।

    Benefits of Nauli Karma

    To bring intensity to the digestive fire, to digest the consumed food, to keep the body always happy, to destroy all the diseases of the stomach, all these are special qualities.

     

    Gheranda Samhita, Pratham Updesha, 52

     

    लौलिकीयोग:

    अमन्दवेगे तुन्दञ्च भ्रामयेदुभ पार्श्वयोः। 

    सर्वरोगान्निहन्तीह देहानलविवर्द्धनम्‌।। 

     

    प्रबल वेग से जठर (पेट) को दोनों ओर घुमाने की क्रिया को ही लौलिकी कहा जाता है। इस लौलिकी योग की साधना करने से समस्त प्रकार के रोगों का विनाश होकर देहानल की वृद्धि होती है। 

     

    The act of rotating the stomach (stomach) on both sides with a strong velocity is called louliki. By doing the Sadhna of this Laaliki or Louliki Yoga, all kinds of diseases are destroyed and the body increases.

     

    लौलिकी क्रिया के अन्तर्गत उत्कटासन की अवस्था में बैठकर पेट के अन्दर अवस्थित दो मोटी नाड़ियों को तीव्रता से दाँयें-बाँयें घुमाया जाता है। इस क्रिया को करने से कुण्डलिनी जागृत होती है, जिसके फलस्वरूप ज्ञान का उदय होता है। इसे शक्तिचालन भी कहा जाता है। यदि दो घड़ी तक इस शक्तिचालन का अभ्यास किया जाय तो शरीर में विचित्र प्रकार का योगबल होने के साथ-साथ बस्ति और शंख प्रक्षालन   क्रिया स्वयमेव सिद्ध होकर शारीरिक कान्ति एवं आरोग्यता की प्राप्ति करवाती है।  यह क्रिया सुयोग्य गुरु के उपदेश द्वारा अवश्य ही जानने योग्य है।

     

    Under Laukik Kriya, sitting in the state of Utkatasana or Uddiyana Bandha, two thick Nadis located inside the stomach are rotated vigorously from right to left. By doing this kriya, Kundalini is awakened, as a result of which knowledge emerges. It is also called a power drive. If this power is practiced for two hours, then along with having a strange type of yoga force in the body, the practice of basti and conch shelling proves itself to attain physical radiance and health. This action is worth knowing by the instruction of a qualified Guru.
