I want to share my experience of practicing the Laghu Shankhaprakshalana yesterday.

As mentioned in the post above, I was suffering some symptoms for the past week and decided to do the short cleansing.

Anyway, I had the house for myself so less commotion as recommended in The Bihar University of Yoga book I followed.

The sequence of 5 yoga asanas is familiar to me as those are part of my daily morning exercise, however I took the time to read all the directions and notes again and found many things forgotten in my daily practice. About 3 years back I had first practiced the cleansing and had photo copied the relevant pages so the asanas are laid down before me and no need to browse back and forth as I go through the process.

Because I was weak I took it slow and eventually stopped after 1 and half sets (2 cups of senile water, 8 times 5 asanas, another two cups and another half set).

I had good bowel movements and eventually ran almost clear water out (just little brownish)

I rested 30 minutes then started cooking the Kichadi. I added cumin and turmeric but no garlic or chili pepper that I do on regular days). Also added carrot, cabbage, pees and green beans

After eating about 3 bowls of Kichadi I had a long burp, that means the stomach is full.

I took mellow boiled Chai with fresh ginger that I had cooked earlier in the morning adding honey and squeezing lemon.

I took a warm shower with a minute of cold stream in the end.

Then I went for a walk. It was around 7:30 pm and the sun was allready beyong the horizon. I usually stop for a sample coffee at the local Trader Joe market. I didn't feel like having too much and thought it may be to pungent but after walking about one kilometer i felt I could handle it. So I had to mini cups (about 50ml. each) with one teaspoon of sugar and a dip of half-&-half cream. Then I rested and had two glasses of water in another cafe and then, about 9pm, walked another kilometer to the house.

In the evening I had a hard boiled egg, fresh green vegetables with olive oil. The green onion tasted much spicier then in regular days.

Today I feel my stools are little soft but also slide out much smoothly then before.

My damp respiratory system is still so but I feel somewhat better.

That is so far...
