There used to be some recommended rules and guidelines to follow before doing any Pranayama and meditation.

Udgeeth involves chanting of AUM (OM) with every exhalation.

We do Udgeeth in a sequence of Pranayam like Bhastrika, Kapalbhati, Anulom Vilom, Bhramari and then Udgeeth. So I don't know whether I should call Udgeeth a Pranayama or Meditation.

Can I do Udgeeth any time? What are associated guidelines or rules for doing Udgeeth? Like in the case of other meditation people recommended for empty stomach and morning time and we should do it under guidance of some Guru. How seriously such guidelines should I take in case of Udgeeth?

In short, are there any guidelines to follow before doing Udgeeth or I can do anytime whenever I am feeling like to do?

  • You can simply follow the teachings of Baba Ramdev regarding these pranayamas.
