So far the devotees have only been sitting and reciting mantras with the use of the mind
and words and the hands have been used to do the oblations. Now it is time to walk on the path of
the y³jóic life and on this depends the success and purity of life. Now starts the journey
of doing noble actions. The pradakÌiñ³ symbolises this journey. Start walking on
whichever side is indicated in the yajóa for the pradakÌiñ³. In action that is done there
are four stages 1) Resolution 2) Beginning 3) Effort and 4) Concentration. Any work done
with the combination of these four will definitely be successful. This taking of the initial
steps and completion of four rounds or pradakÌiñ³ is like an introduction to the leading
of a y³jóic life. To reach the goal of unity, balance, purity and love, it is necessary to
adopt a life of worship, self- study, service and discipline. These are represented by the
four pradakÌiñ³ or circumambulations.

Everyone should turn right of the yajóaï³l³ and start the pradakÌiñ³. If the space
does not allow everyone to take full rounds of the yajóa-dais then each one can stand in
one place and turn towards all four directions which will make one full round - this
pradakÌiñ³ can be done once only. While taking the steps the glory of Mother G³yatrº
should be sung with folded hands. According to the time available either the
maòtra only is chanted or together with it a ïloka of glorification.
