Sanskrit Chanting and Yoga Nidra course concluded.

Sanskrit Chanting and Yoga Nidra course concluded.

This morning we had the last Sunday class for Sanskrit Chanting students. It was a wonderful journey for me personally, as the path has opened up nicely before my eyes. Inspiration overflow is nicely experienced due to intense sadhana (practice) of a prolonged time while working through the numerous chants organising, systematising, editing and packing into packages and courses that can be run in the future in ShantiDwara. This 8 Sundays course was somewhat introductory giving the basics in Sanskrit pronunciation, getting acquainted with the essential shlokas, hymns and mantras. It was also sweetly spiced up with more esoteric practices of studying Matrikas, associated Vrittis, chakras-

Six - Arishadvarga - 6 enemies of the mind

"Excessive eating or harnessing property, strenuous endeavors, idle talks, neglect of principles, the company of the worldly and fickleness; these six make the devotion perish."Ambrosial streams of this text shall feed the lotus of devotion till it blossoms in full.The basis of yoga sadhana is shuddhi (purification), sthiti (the illumination that comes through concentration as a result of purification) and arpana (awakening and conscious unification with the higher force within). Purification comes by awareness around the 6 enemies of the mind. In the evolutional journey of the spiralling up and down, we often stay unaware of the intricate interplay of the major basic 6 strings that our
Sleep Yoga of Naropa

Sleep Yoga of Naropa

Naropa's Yoga Of Sleep utilises practices of very simple chakra visualisation (basically just points of light without much imagery) + mantra (again very simple 1-word utterances) + breath coordination (easy) that are performed sequentially during the sleep time with a waking interval of 2hrs. I was quite stoked to discover that they worked flawlessly from the first go (after simply reading a book and committing to the practice), new dimensions for mind exploration have opened up and allowed to clear lots of doubt on the shaky path of seeking truth."By visualising a specific chakra, the subtle winds (which follow the mind), enter the central channel. The chakra at which they enter is imp

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 th
