The “Sol” or S-Rune According to Friedrich Fischbach (1900)
The “S” is represented by the Sun-Rune = sôl . While the Nordic Rune shapes represent the Shooting-Down of the Rays as a simple Lightning-Flash, in the South: richer Lightning-Characters are popular, and finally the rounding of the shape in our modern “S” comes to the forefront.
Several times “M” (the Character for Man = mädr ) was used for ‘Helios the Invincible’ in Greece and elsewhere. In Old-Norse we also find the Character, which probably indicates the fertilizing Sun-Beam [befruchtenden Sonnenstrahl ] descending to Earth.

The “Sol, Sal, Sul, Sig, Sigi” Rune According to Guido von List (1907)
sol, sal, sul, sig, sigi , Sun [Sonne ], Salvation/Health [Heil ], Victory [Sieg ], Column/Pillar [Säule ], School [Schule ], Aim/Goal [Ziel ], etc.
An Eleventh still I also know in Combat,
When I lead the Beloved:
I’ll sing it into the Shield and they will triumph in Battle,
They will go in one piece and come home in one piece,
They remain in Health [Heil ] everywhere.
“Sal and Sig !” – Salvation and Victory [Heil und Sieg ]. This thousand-year-old ur-aryan Greeting and Battle-Cry is also found in an enlarged form as the Call-of-Inspiration: “Alaf Sal Fena!” This phrase means “Universal Solar-Salvation [Alles Sonnenheil ] to whosoever is Conscious-of-Force [Kraftbewussten ], that is to say: Capable-of-Procreation [Zeugungsfähigen ]!”
“Alaf Sal Fena” has become a Symbol in the Sig-Rune (Victory-Rune [Siegrune ]), the eleventh Character of the Futhark, who’s motto is: “The Creative-Spirit [Schöpfergeist ] must be victorious!”

However, let us remember that every person on this planet from our present Root Race is considered Aryan, according to the Theosophical, Anthroposophic and Gnostic understanding (not just one group or color, etc).

The “Sol, Sal, Sul, Sig” Rune According to Ernst Tristan Kurtzahn (1924)
Exoterically: Victory [Sieg ], Light, Salvation/Health [Heil ], Gain/Win [Gewinn ]
Esoterically: Soul [Seele ]
Generally: Success, Pillar/Column, School, etc.
With this Rune, the names sol and sul are immediately noticeable and one is involuntarily reminded of the English word ‘Soul’, which is indeed almost identical with the Rune-Name.
The Rune consists of three Aspects which symbolize:
1. the Life of the Soul with (in) God,
2. the Falling away into the material World, and
3. the Reunification with God after Overcoming Matter/Material.
The ancient germanic Greeting “sal and sig” = “Salvation/Health and Victory [Heil und Sieg ]” was also composed of the Names for this Rune. The Latin word Salus = Salvation/Healing [Heil ].
It is clear that this Victory-Rune [Siegrune ] was often attached to Arms and Weapons, or that this Call was heard in Battle, which is sufficiently indicated by the Rune-Song.
A certain similarity of this Rune with the Hook-Cross [Hakenkreuz or Swastika] (from two Victory-Runes one could form such a sign!) is unmistakable and gives Subject for Thought.

The “Sol, Sal, Sul, Sig” Rune According to R.J. Gorsleben (1930)
Letter S and Number 11.
The Sal, Sol, Sig Rune is the Zig-zag, the Lightening and the Sunray that descends suddenly, in an Instant [bil ].
The Rune means Victory [Sieg ], victorious, soul, blessed, column, school, seal, sigil, Sun, solum (from Latin meaning “the All-One”), goal/aim [Ziel ], Ziu, Zeus, Sal-ute, Salman, lightning, “Sal und Sieg ” – which is an ancient battle call and salute.
If Sol is the Sun, then Scholle is Earth; above and below: Sol and sole .
Dr. Friedrich Teltscher’s Ur-word is Wille meaning “Will/Willpower”.
“This I know as eleventh, if into battle
I lead the friend, the beloved
I sing it into the shield so that he wins in battle
And well-being is all around him.”
Sal is the Rune of victory, the incendiary spark of victorious thoughts, the twitching lightening bolt out of black clouds, the flooding light of the Ether, which is in need of rich imagination or imagery, and one could recognize in this Rune a man with the victoriously elevated right hand. The Latin salus (meaning “Hail”) is a composite of the ancient call of victory “sal + sig ”. We see this Rune of victory and of well-being on weaponry. Salve = sal-fe or sal-fa = “create well-being” or “create salvation”!
Each victory over oneself and others is an increase, an occasion that makes us happy, it is sal (“salvation” and “well being”), proven superiority and tested strength. But in the use of the acquired might and the exploitation of the victory there is the distinction between human and sub-human. In victory, the sub-human will never have that warm glow for the defeated in their eyes, and with which the human is capable of reconciling when they stretch out their hand to the opponent.
The true human being, the child of God, is never more benevolent, never more Divine and never more irresistible than in victory. “Sal and Sieg !”, he calls out, “Salvation and Victory” achieved, thus says the salige , the blessed Sal -man (the man of salvation, Solomon).
The victor continues: “I wish you, who was defeated, that you too should be well and that you remain so, because of that I am happy about this victory, this is thanks to you, I can only experience this because of you, over whom I was given to be victorious.” There is no victory that would not make us brighter and more ‘well/healthy’ up to this point. This alone is why we want to be victorious, and therefore we are happy! “Alaf sal fena ! All hail to the healthy/well-born ones!”
This Rune has a rushing, hissing, foaming, sounding characteristic as well as that of lightening: a radiating out, sending out, going from one place to another.
Spiritual relations to the Sal -Rune are also contained in the German words Seele (Soul), Selbst (Self), sehen (to see), sühnen (to atone), ver-söhnen (to make up), Sal-man (Solomon), Sa-mane, Schamane (Shaman), Skalde (Poet).
-Paraphrase from The Peak-Time of Humanity [Die Hoch-Zeit der Menschheit] (1930)
by Rudolf John Gorsleben
The “Sig, Sal, Sol” Rune According to S.A. Kummer (1932-1933)
(S) The S-Rune, Sig, Sal, Sol, the Rune of the Solar-Force [Sonnenkraft ], of Victories [Sieges ]. The Sig-Rune is the Rune of the Warrior and the Victor [Kämpfers und Siegers ]; it provides Victory and makes the Enemy sick, weak and powerless. – Numerical value is 11.
Sig is the Sun-Light; the Sieve (or Strainer), the Seventh [Siebener ] (the Head of the Congregation). Shimmering, Glimmering, the ‘shining Lake’ reflects the glittering and radiance of the Sig-Rune.
It also corresponds to the Psalter [Salmane ], to Samane , and to Semnone (the Knower of Silhouettes and Shadows), the Initiate of the Shadow-Dance who knew how to read in the Shadow-Runes.
The Sig-Rune is the Rune that ‘gives Victory’ [Sieg verleiht ], in other words, subdues the enemy, makes him “sick” (wounded): without power and without force. The Victor has the Upper-Hand, and thus is the Superior, while the “Sick-One” is the Inferior, the Forceless, the Low-Sunken.
It is the Rune of “Sal und Sieg” or “Salvation/Health and Victory”, of the Light, of Salvation, of the Soul, and of the igniting Lightning [zündenden Blitzes ]. Our Ancestors carved it into their Weapons.
Long ago, it was customary for those who wanted to be victorious to carry a “Victory-Stone [Siegstein ]”. This Stone gave the bearer Victory through Strength, Beauty and Virtue. Those handed down to us usually contain the inscription “Tiu”, “Ti-ur” or Sig-Tyr twice carved or written (meaning that this God was called upon twice).
The triangular shape is characteristic of Victory-Stones [Siegsteine ], which also symbolically represents the “Thorn”. The Life- or Death-Thorn that leads to Rebirth. Thus, the Sig-Rune also points to Rebirth.
In an ideal Way-of-Life [Lebensweise ], one’s longings are fulfilled, leading to Salvation [Heil ] and through the Overcoming of Matter, of Substance, as well as through Victory over oneself, one gets closer to All-Father. One thereby becomes blessed/blissful [selig ], victorious and one receives spiritually illuminating/sunshiny Power and Force [sonnige Macht und Kraft ].
According to Herman Wirth, the Sig-Rune also means sol or ‘Sun’, the holy Light of the Land, sulu sigi. Sig is the Rune of the Celestial Serpent of Summer-Time, of the Heavenly-Fire, of Lightning, of the heavenly Serpent that flashes from the Thunderstorms of high Summer-Time down to the Earth and brings the heavenly Fire and Rain.
The Demonic of the Sig-Rune is the Zil-Rune = Aim/Goal [Ziel ], Gain more by physical Force, Teat-Phallus, Zizza = Teat, female Breast, Egoism, Passion.
Alaf sal fena! All Hail the Well-Born!
Motto: “The Creative-Spirit must be victorious!”
Kummer’s Full Body Rune Exercise(s):
The Student takes up the Ich-Rune-Position, does the Breathing-Exercise and then lowers the Upper-Body towards the Knees (placing the Hands against the Body) so that when seen from the side: one represents the Sig-Rune.
This Exercise (which is a kind of Squatting) is somewhat difficult, so the Student should not overstrain themselves, but rather rest a little and repeat it again until they become comfortable with it.
In this Position there is a particularly strong effect on one’s Sympathetic-Nerves and on the Solar-Plexus. One now vocalizes the word “Si-i-i-i-i-g” first in a high, then in a low Tone. In doing so, one visualizes that the Universal-Currents [Allströme ] flow through their Spinal-Cord. For further Experience of the Sig-Rune, I also recommend the “s-s-s-” hissing and the following Sound-Formula: “sa-se-si-so-su”.
The Practitioner will become one with their vocalization and then a Tingling, Pulling and Trickling, along with a delightful Sensation, is felt. This perception has nothing to do with Imagination or self-suggestion, and can only be felt by the Student who has already sufficiently developed themselves through the previous Exercises.
The Student is advised to practice this Sig-Rune-Position often so that, later, they can easily sustain it for 15-20 Minutes.
In solitary Rune-Exercises, the positive Sig-Rune is to be taken. The upper Body-Posture must be completely upright, the Small-of-the-Back [Kreuz ] pulled-in, the Head slightly tilted downwards, the Eyes directed to the Root-of-the-Nose, with the Thighs, Knees and Feet pressed together (while the Hands and Arms are placed against the Body) and the Heels are slightly raised.
If one does not yet succeed in the straight Upper-Body-Posture in this Exercise (also called the positive/male Sig-Rune-Position), then one alternately practices the Sig-Rune, Pauses, and then does the Squat with only the heels together (‘closed heels’), but with legs opened wide, which is also a Sig-Rune-Position (called the negative/female Sig-Rune-Position). Do not forget the Breathing-Exercise and Meditation, including the “s-s-s-” hissing.
So the Student alternates several times with the Sig-Rune and the Squat (or negative/female Sig-Rune-Position). With time, they will also master the positive Sig-Rune-Position.
After the magnetizing Hissing [magnetisierenden Summen ], the Meditation is directed to a specific Aim/Goal (for example, to a Friend in great Need [Not ] or the like). Subsequently, Emptiness-of-Thought is initiated.
In lighter Meditations, as well as in Outdoor Conversations with like-minded people, the easy Squat can be done with closed Heels and Straight-Body posture (the negative/female Sig-Rune-Position).
I remind you of the well-known indian Yoga Siddhasana-Position (with crossed feet), which also contains the Sig-Rune. However, I advise against this Position, as our nordic Rune-Position has a more significant Receiving and Transmitting capability.
The Student tries with Patience and Perseverance to attain this most difficult of all Rune-Positions, because it contains a great Power [große Macht ] and unspeakable Blessings.
Dear Brother & dear Sister, I may now only give you hints about the Deep Mystery of the Sig-Rune, but they are enough if the immeasurable Wisdom, Force, and great Love from above, helps you. Know that the Sig-Rune gives you divine Forces [göttliche Kräfte ] to protect your Brothers and Sisters from Injustice, Sorrow, Hate and Enemies: you bring them sunny Salvation [sonniges Heil ].
In your Striving for an ever more noble, pure and conscious Life, the immeasurable Solar-Force and the Power of the Sig-Rune will also be revealed… at the right Moment.
The Divine-Spark [Gottesfunke ] in you must prevail. Heil und Sieg! [Salvation/Health and Victory!]
Kummer’s Hand Rune Exercise (‘Mudras’ or “Rune-Grips”):
The Rune Practitioner should take up the Ich-Rune-Position (Military “At-Attention”); this is followed by a deep Breathing-Exercise three times, with thoughts directed toward physical and spiritual purification; which must be observed with all the Rune-Grips. Figure 11 shows Sig-Rune-Grip.
This Grip is performed with the left Arm extended (like the Ka-Rune-Grip) and the right Arm slightly bent, with the Fingers extended and together. The left Thumb touches the tip of the Index-Finger of the right Hand.
Its Sound-Formulas are: “S-s-i-g” and “sa-se-si-so-su”.
Remember that each Rune-Grip must be repeated three times (for 3 Minutes each, followed by a short Pause in the Ich-Rune-Position between sets), since otherwise no satisfactory Collection of Subtle-Force [Feinkräfte ] can be reached in the Hand-Centers.
Inner Thoughts are directed towards Victory over one’s own Errors and Weaknesses, on Absorbing sunny, victorious Healing/Salvation-Force [Heilskräfte ] and the Inherited-Memory of magical Power and Force [magischer Macht und Kraft ].
By this Grip, too, a great Accumulation of cosmic Subtle-Forces is obtained in the Hands. The left Hand becomes warm, and the Rune Practitioner will feel how the Current also passes into the right Hand. Here, too, an Ozone-like odor can be detected on the Hands.
When it is Circulated in the Body by conscious-willpower [willensbewußt ], the Currents can be observed throughout the entire Body.
This Grip produces a strong Power- and Victory-Awareness in the Practitioner.
With sufficient Development of the Rune Practitioner, higher magical Laws will come into Force.
The astral Color is golden-yellow by Day, and silver-grey by Night.
-Paraphrase from Holy Runic-Power [Heilige Runenmacht] (1932)
& Rune Magic [Runen-Magie] (1933) by Siegfried Adolf Kummer.
Additional Note: Kummer’s Comments for the Practitioner
In the chapter on the Sig-Rune, Kummer also says the following:
‘Victory means: being strong before Humanity and God [stark sein vor Menschheit und Gott ],
Therefore, learn to bow to All-Father’s Power.
Not giving heed to the Blasphemy and Mockery of Others,
This is how you climb to the Light, out of the Night of Everyday-Life.’
The Practitioner often repeats to themselves the following Thoughts:
‘All Rune-Characters that are handed-down to us hold a deep Meaning, a magical Force [einen tiefen Sinn, eine magische Kraft ].
The Runes are not arbitrarily chosen Characters, but rather they are like living People in holy Positions.
The Runes are human-like, physical Characters, that I must learn to sense in their Depths, to grasp, and to use properly.’
The Solar-Plexus is one of the main Centers of the Body. Every Sensation, every Feeling, every Thought has an effect on it and influences the Nervous-Currents which in turn flood the whole Body as Carriers of Thoughts.
If someone thinks good or bad, high or low thoughts, these Waves pulse through their whole Body.
Since the Human-Being now protrudes like an Antenna into the Universe, they also absorb their Thoughts and corresponding Waves, Currents from the Universe; and this again has a positive or negative effect on their Solar-Plexus.
I emphasize once again that above all, correct Thought- and Breath-Training is required in order to be Successful in all Rune-Exercises.
Therefore, the Student should vigorously fight against all weak and bad thoughts, because these strongly influence their solar plexus, which must be avoided at all costs if one wants to achieve good results.

Rosicrucian and Gnostic
The “Sig” Rune According to Huiracocha
The SIG Rune signifies Spiritual Power, numerically it corresponds to 11.
After the AR Rune: two Beings follow, that is to say, the material Being and the divine Being.
SIG is the Rune of the Sun itself and its symbol, as a letter, is the S or the Infinite.
At the same time that the ancients said “SOL”, they also said “SAL”. That’s where the word “SAL-UD ” (meaning “HEALTH / WELL-BEING”) comes from. This Rune has the shape of Lightening, that is, the shape of a Thunderbolt or Ray .
The ancient Romans said “SALVE” (meaning “HELLO, GREETING, HAIL, WELL, and GOOD HEALTH”) and raised their hand in order to make it descend in that zig-zag form. There still exist today secret rites where the same movement is executed. This has the significance of triumph and of victory.
No modern mason suspects that his signs of recognition are nothing more than the descriptions of Runes and that the primitive masons took these signs from the Druids. In the Druid Lodges these explanations are given up to this day, since there is more ancient knowledge there than in masonry.
After man has comprehended the meaning of the previous Rune ( the AR Rune) and has become a Child of the Sun (that is to say, an ARIO ), then he corresponds to Victory, triumph……
Only in this way do you get SAL-UD, that is to say, HEALTH/WELL-BEING…
In Hitler’s Germany, the salute was “SIEG HEIL” (meaning “VICTORY” & “SALVATION”, or “VICTORIOUS SALVATION”) which is a mantram that the people uttered without realizing it, and which could have been an operation of White Magic, if understood properly.
The ancient Dukes (the Leaders of the Nobles) carried this Rune as a symbol that (as the disciple will observe) is a Z, or the Omega to which Jesus refers when saying “I am the Alpha and the Omega or the Beginning and the End”.
These two Runes (the AR and the SIG) contain the Power of all the others.
There is much to meditate on regarding these exercises of A and Z, or of AR and SIG…….
We leave as a final instruction, the explanation of how you can cure all diseases with the Runes and give a nomenclature of them. Also the Runes serve in order to give us good luck, as is done with the letters, but this is much safer and a very old science which we are going to revive. We only call attention to it today, regarding this SIG Rune, because it is the one that returns one’s lost Health.
The Archaeologist or Paleogeographist, Herman WIRTH, says that SIG is the CENTRAL SUN and calls it “SULU-SIGI-SIG” which is also the name of the Serpent, that is to say, of the Kundalini or sexual force in us.
It is remarkable that the five-pointed star, the Macrocosm, is nothing more than a constant repetition of the Rune. SIG or SIZ is what the ancients also called the Phallus or sexual member and thus we return again through Runic Magic to Sexual Magic.
The Magi say that there is no possible incantation without employing this design along with those Kabbalistic names. May the brothers who have works of Magic, see them in those books. This is the only constant in Ceremonial Magic.
No one, neither Faust nor Eliphas Levi, could have evoked anything if they had not used that sign. It is the one who gives triumph. It is the universal seal, the Force that opens up like lightning or the thunderbolt……
Everyone who uses weapons in order to defend themselves, must put this Rune on them. In our times in the Military, we always carried it on our sword embedded like an amulet.
PRACTICE: The practice for this Rune is to pronounce the previous Mantrams tracing Lightning (or the Thunderbolt) with the hand and the index finger extended…. with the mind concentrated on this slogan: “YO QUIERO VENCER EN TODO. ASI SEA.” or “I WILL BE VICTORIOUS IN EVERYTHING. SO BE IT.”
With the present course, I can only lightly touch on the great secrets of Runic Magic, which are older and superior to the Kabbalah, and later the occult world (especially the Theosophists) will thank me for having been the first to address these great problems, of which they had no idea, and that Blavatsky herself did not even suspect.
-Paraphrase from Runic Course [Curso Rúnico] (1931-1935)
by Arnoldo Krumm-Heller (Huiracocha)
available in Gnostic-Rosicrucian Runology
The “Sig” Rune According to Samael Aun Weor
It is indeed difficult to depict the enchantment, the inebriation of ecstasy, the communion of the Saints during nights of meditation. On one such night, the Patriarch JACOB (living Reincarnation of the resplendent Angel ISRAEL), while resting his head upon the Philosophical Stone, read within the stars the promise of an innumerable posterity… And he saw between heaven and earth the mysterious septenary ladder through which all the Elohim are ascending and descending.
To experience what is the Truth, the Real, or ‘THAT’ …is only possible when we are absent from the “I”.
On the day of the LORD, I was inspecting, searching, inquiring into the Mysteries of my own final hour. I saw and heard things which the profane and profaners are not allowed to comprehend. Then, I directly experienced the final stage, the setting of the “I”, the catastrophic ending of ‘Myself’. Thus, I could live the Crucifixion of the INTIMATE CHRIST and the descent into the Holy Sepulcher. The fight against Satan was terrible… Then, my Priestess-Wife sealed my sarcophagus with a large Stone while sweetly smiling, and from the Golgotha of the Father: lightning, thunder and terribly divine voices were heard…
All of this reminds us of the SIG Rune, which is the terrible lightning from the Central Sun and “SULU-SIGI-SIG” which is the secret name of the frightfully sacred viper Kundalini.
In ancient times, human beings trembled before the Pentalpha, which is certainly a constant repetition of the SIG Rune. This star resembles the trace of the zig-zag of lightning. In the Archaic Mysteries, SIG was the Phallus, and through it we return to the Maithuna (Sex-Yoga).
SIG is the Sun, and its letter is the ‘S’, whose sound (when wisely prolonged) is converted into the subtle voice, into that sweet and pleasant whistle that ELIAS heard in the wilderness.
The Final Initiation is sealed with Lightning, with the SIG Rune, and amongst thunder & lightning these tremendous words are heard: “My FATHER, I Entrust my SPIRIT into YOUR HANDS.” The luminous flaming sword (which threateningly turns in every way in order to keep the way of the Tree of Life) has the dreadful figure of the SIG Rune, and reminds us of the zig-zag of Lightning.
“Woe unto the Samson of the Kabbalah if he permits himself to be put asleep by Delilah! The Hercules of science, who exchanges his royal scepter for the distaff of Omphale…” Unhappy is he who permits himself to be seduced by the original She-Devil, the no-name woman, who is a rose of perdition from the infernal abyss. Disgraceful is the Initiate who falls inebriated into the arms of any others who lead us from the Path…
Woe! Woe! Woe to those Initiates who succumb to the fiery kisses, not of the many women, but of that symbolic woman who does not try to seduce with the suggestions of mere animal sensation, but with the most delectable arts of subtle sentimentalism and romantic emotionalism. Therefore, it would be better for these Initiates not to be born or for a millstone to be hung about their necks, and that they be drowned in the depths of the sea…
Disgraceful are the ones who instead of rising towards the Golgotha of the Father and descending into the Holy Sepulcher, will be fulminated by the terrible lighting of Cosmic Justice. They will lose their Flaming Sword and will descend into the Kingdom of PLUTO through the black path. The terrible Ray of Cosmic Justice also precipitates those fallen Bodhisattvas (who never want to rise again) into the abyss.
Every Great Work, any Judgment, is always sealed with the SIG Rune, with the flaming sword.
PRACTICE: You must seal all of your magical works, invocations, supplications, healing chains, etc., with this Rune. The zig-zag of lightning must be traced with your hand and your index finger extended, while also sounding the letter “Sssssss” as a prolonged sweet and affable whistle.
-Paraphrase from The Magic of the Runes [Magia de las Runas] (1969)
by Samael Aun Weor
The letter “S” is the SIG Rune and has a terrific power. When we vocalize it, lightning is produced in the internal atmosphere, which has the power to awaken the Kundalini.
The esoteric name of Kundalini is SULU-SIGI-SIG. This is also the name of the central sun. Each one of these letters should be vocalized in the following order: Ssssss Uuuuuu Luuuuu – Ssssss Iiiiii Gggggg Iiiiii – Ssssss Iiiiii Gggggg.
Every letter must be vocalized, prolonging the sound of each letter, just as we have indicated. It is important to prolong the sound of each vowel. The letter “S” is like a sweet and affable hiss. The Bible speaks to us of this sweet and affable hiss in the following verses:
“And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before Jehovah.
And, behold, Jehovah passed by,
and a great and strong wind rent the mountains,
and broke the rocks into pieces before Jehovah;
but Jehovah was not in the wind;
and after the wind an earthquake;
but Jehovah was not in the earthquake:
“And after an earthquake a fire:
but Jehovah was not in the fire:
and after the fire a still small voice [hiss].
“And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle,
and went out, and stood in the entrance of the cave.
And, behold, there came a voice [hiss] unto him,
and said, what doest thou here, Elijah?” (1 Kings: 19: 11-13)
The “S”, as a Mantram, permits us to leave our cave (the physical center) and to enter upon the mount (the astral plane). The disciple must become sleepy while vocalizing the sweet and affable sound of the “S”. When the disciple reaches that state of transition between vigil and sleep, then they must rise from their bed and leave the room, going towards the Gnostic Church. Once in the Gnostic Church, we will teach and instruct them in the Divine Wisdom.
However, we must clarify to our disciples that this explanation which we have given must be understood as an immediate action. The student must rise up from their bed, as naturally as would a child who knows nothing of occultism. It is not a mental practice. It is a practice which must be understood as a concrete action, just as when we rise up in the morning in order to eat breakfast.
