“Dhouthivastistathā neti trātakam noulikam thathā kapālabhāthischaithani shat karmāni prachakshatell'.

The six acts are named Dhouti, Vasti, Ne'ti, Trātaka, Nauli and kaphālabhāti. These six acts that purify the body should be kept secret as they produce various wonderful results and are held in higher esteem by great yogin-s / Hata Yoga Pradeepika.

The shat karma are very powerful practices that can never be learned from books or taught by inexperienced people. In India there is a tradition that only those who are instructed by the Guru can teach others. One may think he has the capacity to teach, but actually he may not have adequate experience or knowledge to guide others proficiently, and this applies to the shat karma in particular. If unqualified people teach them they are likely to make serious mistakes. Also one can make mistakes if one practices them independently without the instruction-s of Guru.
