Vamana Dhauti (Kriya)

Sthiti: Tadasana


  • Drink about one and a half liters of lukewarm saline water (about 1% saline) as quickly as you can until you feel like vomiting it out.
  • Churn the stomach by twisting exercises.
  • Now, spread the legs about two feet and bend the trunk forward forming an angle of about 90 degrees to the ground.
  • Now with the help of the middle three fingers of the right hand, tickle the back of the throat to vomit out (vaman) all the water.
  • Repeat the process of tickling the throat until no more water comes out, which may mean that all water has been vomited.
  • With continued practice one can stimulate the vomiting sensation and vomit out the water without using the fingers to tickle the throat.
  • Relax completely in DRT for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Have a bland breakfast after about half an hour.


  • This is to be done early in the morning on an empty stomach.
  • A bland breakfast could preferably consist of Indian kichadi (rice and lentil-dhal, cooked with or without salt), along with a tea spoon full of pure ghee. Avoid coffee or tea for breakfast.
  • With long practice one can learn to vomit all the water as if it is a continuous jet. This is called Gajakarani.
