100 On The Yoga of Death III
To practice the Yoga of Death you must first achieve balance in the body, then balance in the mind.
When you are at that level of balance, then you must begin to choose the process of dying.
Start by lying in the nidra asana, lying down, on the floor or some other solid surface.
Feel your body relax completely, know that it is dead, that it has slipped away from you and you have lost it. Remain centred in your meditation, do not flee from this reality.
Know that your emotional bonds have slipped away, that all your desires and ties to people and things in your life are lost.
Know that your mind is disappearing, your knowledge is gone, all that you have learned in the world falls away.
Realize that what you called life is over.
Know that the guru is there, with you, and all of the Buddhas.
Proceed until there is nothing left of what you believe to be your self.
Remain there, unattached, as pure meditation, undistracted.
Realize that you are already dead.
You can enjoy and appreciate all things, because you know that none of them are yours, they are already done.
Thus you become free of conditionings and karma.
Repeat this meditation regularly, for no less than 21 days, and afterwards at other times in your life, that you may not forget you are dead and thus forget how to live.
Live knowing that you are going to die, because you will.
Then life will flower all around you, and you can accept life on its own terms, without conflict.
