 Sutra NetiMaterials requiredSterilization facility.Rubber catheter (ordinary urethral catheter Nos: 3 (or) 4.Technique

Sutra Neti is practised by using thread traditionally. But in modern times a small rubber catheter No.3 (or) 4 is used. Rubber catheter can be sterilized and used again.

Take sterilized rubber catheter and introduce the blunt end slowly into one nostril without any force.

Eventually feel for the end of the tube emerging at the back of the throat.

Introduce index finger and thumb or middle and index finger and reach into the throat and pull out the blunt end of the rubber Neti through the mouth smoothly.

Hold the ends with the hands and gently pull the catheter backwards and forwards. So that it gently massages the nasal cavity.

Perform this for 5 times and gently remove the tube through the mouth. Now repeat with the other nostril.

Precautions: Sutra Neti (Rubber Neti)

Check the rubber tube, don’t use the catheter with cut or damage at the ends or in any other part of it.

Sterilize the rubber catheter before use.

Practise in empty stomach (to avoid vomiting). Preferable time is morning.

Nails must be cut neatly and hands cleaned.

Press the nose upwards and insert the tube parallel to the palate very smoothly otherwise the delicate nasal passage may get injury or the tube may get struck in concha.

Keep the head in correct direction and mouth open.

Inhalation through the nose in which the catheter is being inserted,by closing the other nose with fingers and slight twist of the catheter will help for the practice but never give any undue force.

When the catheter is pulled in and out of the nostril and mouth and brought out through the mouth for removing, it should be done smoothly with one’s own speed.

Persons suffering from blocking of the nose, congestion in nose, swelling of nasal mucosa, nasal polyps, and deviated nasal septum should practise Sutra Neti under proper guidance.

Apply lubricant (like ghee) on the rubber tube or practise Jala Neti before practising rubber Neti that makes the practice easier.

Avoid spectacles; one may get sneezing when the tube touches the sensitive olfactory mucosa present in the roof of the nose.

After the practice if one feels dry, sore and raw in the nasal passage introduce few drops of ghee or milk into the nasal passage by holding the head back.

After practice sterilize the tube, dry it and keep it safe.

  Benefits For Spiritual Aspirants

It is beneficial practice for Kapalabhati and Pranayama.

Neti helps to keep air-sinuses and nasal passages healthy and thus helps in learning spiritual practices like OM (AUM)-pranava and other mantras more efficiently.
