Just like I had mentioned, I have tried the "Mutra Neti" today. I am going to share my experience with you guys. I am sure many of you might find it amusing could have a good laugh, some of you might find it helpful if you plan to do it yourself as well.
Based on what I had read on how should one practice this, I attempted it to do it accordingly in the best way. Out of all that I had read about this practice, the most important ones that I believed were 1) Sattvic diet. 2) First Urine in the morning.
1) Sattvic Diet: I have not got enough time to read all about this and have a sattvic diet lifestyle either. But I believe since I am vegetarain that would make me quite sattvic if not 100%. I still want to mention that I do have onions and garlic in my diet sometimes which I have read are tamsic food. I do intend to be 100% sattvic at some point. Just not ready yet. So basically I did this without have a 100% sattvic diet.
2) First Urine the morning: This was not possible for me either. My nostrils are uually blocked when I wake up in the morning and so I am not ready for doing any "Neti" I usually do Neti after doing some asanas and pranayamas which opens up my nostril for a more comfortable Neti.
OK so here are the details:
I woke up today morning. Had 1 full glass of hot water; 1 of my daily routine. Used the bathroom. Lost the first urine since I am sure would not be a good idea to store it and use it.
Started doing my asanas. Felt the urge to pass urine. Was almost done doing the asanas. My nostrils were quite open now after my body getting warm after the asanas. Went to the bathroom. Filled the Neti pot close to 70% with urine. Started doing Neti on the first nostril. OMG. THIS WAS SO DISGUSTING. The smell, very little taste. There is no way I could describe how disgusting the feeling was. The thought of it right now gives me a feeling to puke. Finished half of the urine so and stopped so I could do the other nostril. Pushed out all urine out of noth nostril by exhaling. The smell was killing me. My god the thought of it right now while describing this is so disgusting. I am thinking about the smeel and the taste. Started doing it on the other nostril. MUCH MORE DISGUSTING. I was so determined that no matter what I am going to complete the pot; but then I felt NO WAY, I CAN"T do this. I did complete most of it; but finally STOPPED. CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!!!! Exhaled all urine out of both nostrils which was again smelly and taste was killing me.
Once I was out of bathroom; I was just glad that this was over. I was glad that I completed something that I decided I will. But even after that when I would try to clear my throat or my nostrils, sinuses, I would feel the smeel and taste of urine which was disgusting. I had this smell and taste of it almost all day.
The whole process of very disgusting becuase of the act itself, the smell and the taste. I do not think there were any side effects though. If I take away the disgust factor, I would say I did not find much difference between the salt water neti and mutra neti. Not sure what the long term experience would be once you practice it on regular basis. As far as I am concerned, this was too disgusting for me to do it again; definitely not soon:-D:-D Or maybe this is what I think today. Who know what I might do after a few days?? :-D:-D
