By Swami Harshananda

Laukikī is the fourth ṣaṭkarmas or the six purificatory exercises for cleansing the body prescribed in the works on Haṭhayoga. It can be performed by moving the stomach and intestines with great force from one side to the other. It destroys all the diseases and increases digestive power.[1]
