According to Gheranda Samhita or Hatha Yoga Pradipika there are six cleansing processes we have known as Shatkarma means ‘Shat’ → six, ‘karma’ → procedures.
Six Procedures are:
- Washing (physical and mental body)
- Nasal cleansing
- Abdominal purification technique
- Eyes and Mental cleaning
- Shining head kriya
These six procedures are helping us to clean our physical and mental body. As well as it helps us to be spiritual.
These shat kriyas has lots of powerful benefits.
As the beginners, all kriyas should practice under a good guidance because incorrect knowledge about these kriyas can be problematic sometimes.
Once you become a good practitioner according to your body condition you can practice it by yourself, but before that you should collect all correct information about it.
