What are the Benefits of the Khechari Mudra?

A regular, proficient practice of Khechari Mudra is said to release the very elixir of life. The term “khechari” is derived from two Sanskrit roots that are translated as meaning “one who moves the sky.” In other words, an ardent practice of this tongue lock mudra will propel a devotee into a state of the universal awareness of God. As the tongue puts pressure on the soft palate in the middle indentation located on the roof of the mouth, a variety of sensitive glands are stimulated and are release tiny drops of ambrosial nectar.

This nectar is known as amrita in Sanskrit. It is said to relieve all hunger and thirst in very advanced practitioners. For the rest of us, it clears the energetic pathways of the Sashumna Nadi and allows the awakened Kundalini Shakti energy to continue her ascension up through the seven chakras until she pierces the Crown Chakra where the devotee’s consciousness merges into God’s consciousness. A regular practice of this mudra will keep these energetic pathways clear and stabilize a practitioner’s consciousness in the higher chakras.

Practicing the Khechari Mudra also stimulates the release of “feel good” neurotransmitters such as dopamine. With the release of calming and soothing hormones, a Khechari Mudra practitioner also experiences a profound state of calmness and well-being. Additionally, applying pressure to the points on the roof of the mouth helps to balance out the energetic pathways throughout the body. In this way, incorporating a regular practice of the Khechari Mudra into your Yoga practice will help to revitalize your entire being as the nectar of the gods is released and flows from the bindu located at the Third Eye Chakra throughout your whole body. It is even said that practicing the Khechari Mudra has the power to awaken the divine Kundalini Shakti energy that lies coiled at the base of the spine.

Khechari Mudra

To practice Khechari Mudra, sit in a comfortable position on a chair or on a blanket or Yoga mat on the floor. Close your eyes and fold your tongue back and up towards the soft spot in the middle of the roof of your mouth. Gently apply pressure to this point with the tip of your tongue. Practice Ujjayi breathing or ocean-sounding breath as you perform Khechari Mudra. Hold this mudra for several minutes. When you have completed the practice, sit for a few moments and feel the calm and expansiveness throughout your being.

    For centuries Mankind has searched for the Holy Grail/Chalise
    Its rumoured to hold the Nectar of life within it.
    Drinking this Nectar Legend states gives immortality.
    .
    Sai Baba says the Holy Chalise/Grail exists within
    mankind.
    There is no need search here and there.
    The Holy Grail/Chalise and Nectar of Life is activated within.

    LESSONS FROM GOD- THE HOLY GRAIL/the Holy Chalice
    Sept 2005
    .
    I remember being taught to roll the tongue upwards and slightly backwards in our Kriya Yoga Initiation and Qigong and by my Guru Sathya Sai Baba, (of course when we talk we allow the tongue to straighten)!
    .
    Roll the tongue always said our masters-=- all the time.
    I had meticulously rolled my tongue for approx 6 months, when one day I became fed up.
    .
    I went to the mirror and looked at myself and said Sai Baba I am Fed up no more rolling my Tongue I look stupid, I feel stupid No More.
    .
    I stopped rolling my tongue.

    A Couple of hours later I was praying in my car when suddenly Sai Baba stood in front of me and said, “Amarjit come with me”.
    .
    Baba then took me out of my body and we were hovering over Biggin Hill Airport looking down into my body.
    .
    I could see myself sitting in the car praying with my tongue rolled backwards.
    Sai Baba said, “Amarjit, look what is happening to you when you roll your tongue!”.
    Then the most incredible drama happened. Sai Baba gave me X-ray eyes-I could see into my body.
    .

    I saw this huge Divine (click here) Chakra, opening in my forehead.

    I was shown this Nectar of life being formed and secreted flowing down my brain, throat into my spine and flowing into where it was Karmically needed.
    The Taste was Unlike none other. It was the Holy nectar of the Gods.
    Then Sai Baba said
    “Why does mankind seek the HOLY GRAIL here and there. ( click here : Holy Grail )
    .
    The Holy Grail lies within your Temple, your body. This Holy Grail/ Soma/Nectar/Ambrosia can be activated by rolling your tongue upwards and backwards, Amarjit!”
    .
    In your body is contained all the universes of creation. Cherish this!
    Roll your tongue as much as you can, so long as you roll this the Nectar of life/Soma nectar will be activated “.
    .
    This Soma Nectar/Amrita is released down our spine into our 72,000 Nadi system. Wherever the Soma Nectar drips there we will never accumulate Karma. Its like a Cosmic Teflon, where Karma cannot accumulate.
    .
    Imagine a force which enters your life and says from now on in this particular circumstance you will not accumulate any Karma here. this is the force of the Soma Nectar. Pictures of Shiva shown with the Crescent moon on his forehead The moon is the Soma Chakra. Because this Nectar is Akin a Nuclear explosion only a small amount is released at any one time. It can only be activated Thru Gods Grace or initiation in a dream or by the grace of a True Sadguru in flesh.
    .
    When you roll your tongue the Great wine of the Yogis the Nectar of immortality starts flowing. (You will notice an increase in saliva flow. This gives much stilness in your mind, great calmness and healing). Also the increased saliva will help with any stomach problems.
    .
    The Yogis snip below the tongue for greater flexibility. Sai Baba says this is not necessary for us.
    .
    To activate the Holy Grail/Soma Chakra into a great force the Kechari Mantra is mentally chanted while rolling the tongue upwards and backwards.. This achieves Immortality of the Ego Mind Personality.
    .
    “HRIM BHAM SAM PAM PHAM SAM KSHAM”
    .
    Swami Sivananda says 500,000 repetitions of this great mantra banishes wrinkles and grey hair. Why roll the tongue at all.

    Sai Baba says “Why does Mankind keep running around looking for outside HIGH’S
    When within the human Body God has bestowed on us Divine Mansions”
    (Jesus said “In my Father’s House there are many mansions”
    our body is our Fathers mansion.
    .
    The greatest ecstasy comes from chanting the Name of God with the tongue rolled up or service to mankind, . Mother Teresa did not need drugs etc she was on constant high serving and chanting the name of God :
    .
    What is kechari mudra? Let’s put it in terms that we can easily
    relate to. A centimeter or two above the roof of our mouth is located
    one of the most ecstatically sensitive organs in our whole body. It
    can be reached relatively easily with our tongue. It is located on
    the back edge of our nasal septum, and when the nervous system is
    purified enough through advanced yoga practices, our tongue will roll
    back and go up into the cavity of our nasal pharynx to find the
    sensitive edge of our septum.
    .
    When this happens, it is like a master
    switch is closed in our nervous system, and all of our advanced yoga
    practices and experiences begin to function on a much higher level.
    When kechari is entered naturally, we come on to the fast track of
    enlightenment
    ========================

    English Translation: Extract from The Sikh Guru Granth Sahib
    RAAMKALEE, FIFTH MEHL: It is beyond the three qualities; it remains untouched. The seekers and Siddhas do not know it. There is a chamber filled with jewels, overflowing with Ambrosial Nectar, in the Guru’s Treasury. || 1 || This thing is wonderful and amazing! It cannot be described. It is an unfathomable object, O Siblings of Destiny! || 1 ||

    Its value cannot be estimated at all; what can anyone say about it? By speaking and describing it, it cannot be understood; only one who sees it realizes it. || 2 || Only the Creator Lord knows it; what can any poor creature do? Only He Himself knows His own state and extent. The Lord Himself is the treasure overflowing. || 3 || Tasting such Ambrosial Nectar, the mind remains satisfied and satiated. Says Nanak, my hopes are fulfilled; I have found the Guru’s Sanctuary. || 4 || 4 ||

    LESSONS FROM GOD : Holy Grail Holy Chalise Our tongue – Our Energy Electric switch. (Kechari Mudra)

    Sai Baba spoke, Our tongue is one of the secret activation centres within our body.

    It is the Main electrical switch to access our Divine Spiritual Meridians
    In our previous lesson the Holy Grail, the Soma Nectar,
    the Nectar of Life,
    is activated by rolling our tongue upwards and slightly backwards.
    How many of you practice this?
    For those who do :

    It increases Calmness and our concentration into deeper God conciousness.

    It increases the flow of Saliva? This aids in digestion and dissolves
    many diseases in the body!

    Roll the tongue as you mentally chant your prayers/mantras as they become even more powerful!

    `Rolling the tongue creates an abundance of Internal Healing Chi and fluid.
    This fluid which flows like a waterfall down through the palate across
    the upper palate to the back down to the mouth and the throat (Twelve storied pagoda)
    from where we are able to swallow it down to fill the other two Tan Tiens. This water is also known as the nectar, water of life or the golden elixir the Soma Nectar.
