Power of purifying body, mind and psyche with Mantra and Yantra

Hari Om,
This Sunday morning we embark on a Yogic journey with the ancient practice of Antar Nyasa (“internal placement”) including profound work with Mantra and Yantra, followed by the deep meditation in Yoga Nidra (“psychic sleep”). We will “connect all the dots” and “retune all the strings” 😉 I mean it.

Shanti Prem,
Matarishvan

"Nada yoga, such as mantra, kirtan and raga, are sensorial phenomena that can be tools for transformation, enabling us to transcend mental, physical and spiritual suffering.

...we can, therefore, realign, release and revitalize the pathways of energy as well as tone the nerve plexuses and balance the endocrinal and other systems of the physical body. So, with sound we are able to vibrationally attune ourselves with the subtle, intelligent, all pervading consciousness. We can activate these subtle and causal realms and thereby expand our own awareness, understanding and knowledge, and experience inner states of profound fulfilment and joy.

...different mantras, as a consequence of their origin, can therefore liberate, and reorganize and re-align the mind's tendencies, which eventually quietens the mind, intensifies its focus, concentration, and energy levels.

...the magnet of the mantra can realign and release energy, creating positive energy and thoughts, enabling the individual consciousness to develop a more harmonious level of experience."

Psychospacial Meditation


Q: I have been mediating since 14 now I am 20 initially I felt quite calm any detached but slowly I became  irritated and depressed sort of. Should I stop meditation and yoga?

A: The irritation/depression is likely to be frustration with your life. You might like to think about what you want out of your life and go after it systematically. A good place to start is a vision board and new experiences and training. Meditation and yoga just reveals what is there, it doesn't create the difficult emotions, it just allows them time/space to rise up and inform our lives.

———

If one focuses the Mind’s-Eye in a directional spacial orientation:

1. Clarity — occurs as a single-point in front of the two eyes. 

2. Maturity — is at the top of the forehead. 

3. Serenity — is at the temporal lobes above the ears. 

4. Joy — is found by focusing the mind’s-eye at the nostrils and following the breath there. 

5. Happiness — (the absence of closure and sadness) is found by focusing at the crown of the head and this lifts sadness in the lungs/throat/diaphragm. 

6. Nondual Peace — After running through the full sequence then a painful knot of “need” is felt in the solar plexus. This knot in the solar plexus is then dissolved by focusing the mind’s-eye on the brainstem. By practicing clarity, maturity, serenity and joy all at the same time; this then translates as peace. 


Psychospacial Meditation is like a gate opener for connecting the Uraeus, the brainstem and the solar plexus brain. These psychospacial gateways allow the knot of need/control in the solar plexus to be accessed and dissolved by first passing through clarity/maturity/serenity/joy/happiness and then finally this control-knot is “touched” and healed through the “brainstem.” So perhaps final letting go of the reactive distress of our separation and unenlightenment is done in this way. When we are talking of resistance, division, judging, distancing etc... we are probably talking about feeling helpless or the “need to control.” So this is the tension that prevents Unity Consciousness and harmony with our environment.


Interestingly the pain and deficit in the solar plexus knot was not apparent to awareness until I had done all the focus points. However this knot must subliminally always be there as a permanent ongoing wound. I theorize that if one clears the larger-noisier emotions out the way, the finer more nuanced emotions would be felt and one’s inner life should deepen and refine, becoming ever more precise in communicating subtle emotional resonances and information from the Void.

I intuit that the sequence is important. Clarity is necessary prior to maturity. Maturity is necessary prior to serenity. Serenity is necessary prior to joy. Joy is necessary prior to happiness. Happiness is necessary prior to overcoming deprivation/need. Thus there is a specific flow to the unfolding of energy in the body. Psychospacial meditation will permanently rewire one if done consistently. Individual reasons and issues for suffering are not important, it’s a matter of rewiring and changing the vibratory state of the tissues. Thus all hurts are one, and all healing is one.

The key to psychospacial meditation: I found the sequence to the psychospacial gates by simply by holding the word in my mind and seeing where my mind’s-eye went. This way we should be able to find the psychospacial focal point for any such word, eg: forgiveness, fortitude, gratitude, benevolence etc.... Focus your mind’s-eye on any pain, constriction or ill feeling in the body and ask “what is this?” After a while a word will arise reflecting the dominant emotion connected with that blockage in the flow. Then find the opposite word and send the mind’s-eye on a hunt to search for the location and the mechanism that switches the stuck negative emotion into its opposite resonance. In this way we can shift any vibration over to the positive. By emotionally spring cleaning in this way we do not have to remain victim to entrenched, stressful states that play havoc with our health and well-being.

Power of Nada Yoga and Sanskrit Mantra

***YOGA EVENTS, CLASSES, CONCERTS***

Hari Om,

We are blessed to live in the lands with wide variety of Yoga classes to choose from. There is abundance of sacred spaces, temples, Yoga studios for us to step into in order to escape the continuous race of creating the material comfort. However, often, in the gushing flow of life, we find ourselves stuck with the habitual ways and keep the doors of opportunities shut, otherwise allowing the shift in the perspective, which essentially allows us to see the world in full splendour.


Most people, who already found their way to Yoga came seeking basic desire to have a better health, longevity, vitality, sense of connection with others and the reality. As the journey unfolds, we move through the chapters, dig deeper, encounter new teachings, new paths, enriching our experience, until suddenly finding ourselves in a state of peace with ourself. Often, however, the state of blissful peace that the practice of Yoga gifts us with, leaves suddenly, and again we get carried away by the sway of emotions, worries, infinite thoughts and confusion. Yoga journey is always filled with the continuous discovery of the transient nature of our mind-based reality, always a subjective experience, until liberation from the bond of Karmic pendulum comes, and the mind gets a chance to rest in peace. This highly-sought achievement comes to never leave, as it is, as taught by all masters throughout eons, entirely granted by the grace from above according to our applied efforts.


In Yoga, the main idea of the above and bellow, heaven and earth, connecting the material and spiritual realms in perfect equanimity, comes first with addressing the needs of the body as it is, working out the physical tensions, gradually affecting the state of the mind and emotions. At higher steps in Yoga, when the mind has been significantly purified, meditation state emerges spontaneously.


✡ Science of Yoga has originated in India, the land of Rishis - sages - many many years ago. Countless civilisations emerged and collapsed on the surface of our Earth, artefacts turning to dust, so that no modern material science can even grasp the depth of the culture once present. A whirling spin of the Creatrix from golden to dark ages, and so many times, in eternal dance of matter and consciousness, intricate “pa’s” of creation and dissolution until all bits grasp the inconceivable grandeur of the Two, which are the One.


🗝 Indian culture holds the key to the lock of our bonds, and as per Ashtanga Yoga of Patanjali, initial steps of the 8-fold path (Ashtanga) - social and personal discipline, asana-pranayama practices bring us into a state where the mind factually is capable to separate from the 5 senses into a state of pratyahara. Most of the meditation techniques are exactly that - routinely train the mind to split from the sensual world and discover the true potential of our being. What comes next, is the merger moment at the eyebrow chakra - Ajna - the seat of our inner Guru, our internal guidance, tapping into the world of Vijnanamaya Kosha - the field of intuition, from where we, as if surrendering to the flow of a river, just keep an effort to stay afloat and be guided to the other shore.


🎶 One of the most significant practices inducing the state of sense withdrawal is Mantra chanting. The pure sound vibration of ancient Sanskrit syllables is a potent way to connect with particular packets of patterns in our mind and release them. Hindu culture since the times immemorial holds the knowledge of all the spell “pills” to cure the mind of its dis-ease.


In ShantiDwara Yoga Temple, the powerful ritual of Healing Mahamrityumjaya Mantra and Havan is held weekly for the upliftment and wellbeing of all - participants and all those kept in the heart while the chanting is performed.


♥️♥️♥️ To see more details of weekly Saturday "Mahamrityumjaya Havan” at ShantiDwara Yoga Temple visit this event https://www.facebook.com/events/862230674113304/ or https://shantidwara.com/page/view-event-profile?id=2 


From 5 May to 23 June there is a deep-dive course of Sanskrit chanting on Sunday mornings, which will include Sri Hanuman Chalisa hymn, 50 Matrika sound meditation, and other Vedic prayers of sonic indulgence, which might include Sankatanasha Ganesha Stotram, Guru Stotram, Guru Padukam, Shiva Shodakshara Stotram, Mahishasura Mardini Stotram, Devi Suktam, Purusha Suktam, Ganapatyatharvashirsham. In this course we get a chance to weekly connect with the purest vibration of well-known traditional invocations that tightly grasp a hand of a soul and direct it in the world of power from within.

Friday, 26 April there is a classical Indian music performance at ShantiDwara by Soul Sangeet project of Shivam Rath.


Soul Sangeet is a new musical term & genre with a Sanskrit twist.


The concept is inspired by Indian Classical music but presented for a wider world. For the past few years Shivam Rath has been developing this world music culture with a particular passion for universal sound healing & ancient mantras. In all his travels across the world he feels that Indian Classical imbibes most of his preferred qualities with its vast spectrum of emotions, speeds & subtleties, its deeply devotional and vedic philosophy plus its inherent nearness to nature within the mystical world of Raga & its mastery of Tala (time/rhythm)


Plus we are particularly delighted to welcome back 8th generation Sarangi Meastro Sangeet Mishra back to Australia for his third international Soul Sangeet tour with Shivam on the 22 string Crystal Slide, Mico Sundari Vocals, Shen Flindell & Massimo Bidin both on Tabla.

Swami Yogamanas Saraswati

profile on ShantiDwara

Sw. Yogamanas has taught Satyananda yoga, a systematic integrated and meditative style of yoga, with an emphasis on awareness in all aspects of practice since 2000, 17 of those years on a full-time basis. 

 

Starting the daily sadhana and study of yoga and meditation in 1996, following 10 years of martial arts, he has been blessed with great teachers that put him in good stead for teaching in a variety of settings. Some of these settings include institutions – from early childhood centres and schools to AFP and prisons, for sports people – footballers to athletes, private clients – in their homes, live via the web – for international corporate clients, many government departments and workplaces, ashrams – dedicated yoga centres, and various workshops and retreats.

 

Aspects of a class include Mantra, Asana, Pranayama, Yoga Nidra, and Meditation. There are other aspects not mentioned here from the various branches of yoga e.g Nada, Bhakti, Kriya etc. that will be utilised as appropriate.

Classes aim to balance and focus energy, the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Often we are reactive and habitual – limiting our experience. With the practice of yoga, you become the conscious knower of yourself – an expansive experience.
