The Mantra Sadhana has to be done for 21 days starting from a Monday and each day, the Sadhak has to chant 21 rosaries of the Third-Eye Opening Shiva Mantra given in this post.
|Shiva Trinetra Mantra to Open Third Eye|
Before starting the Mantra Japa, one has to use his right hand's ring finger and middle finger and very vigorously rub the third eye area in a vertical or a diagonal motion. One has to sit facing the east direction on a white Aasan [white colored sitting mat]. The Mantra Japa should only be done early in the morning before 9 am.
Other than this, Basic rules like lighting a Pure Ghee [pure clarified butter] lamp, worshipping Shiva and Ganesha or any other of the aspirants favored deities have to be performed.
This Mantra Japa should only be done if you have already activated all the other Chakras below the Ajna Chakra or else, it will bring calamatic situations for your body, you may suffer from diseases, you may start behaving like a bipolar disorder person, you may feel immense amounts of giddiness, fatigue, inability to keep your eyes open, feeling very sleepy, etc. One must also mediate at least 5 minutes on all the other Chakras after doing this Mantra Japa.
The Shiva Trinetra or the Third-Eye of Shiva symbolizes the ultimate occult, secret, divine and paranormal powers in the Cosmos. Gaining Siddhi over the inherent paranormal forces in the Universe is the dream of most Yogis and advances Sadhaks.
