Vaman Dauti - Stomach and Food passage cleansing - Yogic method

Vaman Dhauti. Kunjal Kriya or Vaman Dhauti (regurgitate cleansing)

Preparation :

Wash the hands and make sure the nails are carefully trimmed.

Prepare about two liters of lukewarm (body temperature) water per person, adding one teaspoonful of slat per liter according to taste.

Technique I : Kunjal Kriya (the practice of vomiting water)

Stand near a sink or toilet, or if the weather is warm, in a suitable place outside in the garden or near on open drain. Drink at least six glasses of the prepared water one after the other, as quickly as possible, until it feels that the stomach cannot hold any more. It is most important to drink fast and not just sip the water.

When the stomach is full, the urge to vomit will occur automatically.

Lean forward, keeping the trunk as horizontal as possible.

Open the mouth and place the middle and index fingers of the right hand as far back on the tongue as possible.

Gently rub and press the back of the tongue. This should induce the water to gush out from the stomach.

If there is no expulsion of water it means the tips of the fingers are not far enough down the throat or that the tongue is not being pressed.

The more the practitioner relaxes into the practice, the easier it will be.

During the expulsion of water the fingers may be removed from the mouth although this is not necessary.

When the flow of water ceases, again place the fingers in the mouth and repeat the process.

Continue in this way until stomach is empty.
