Hari Om. 

My name is Matarishvan. This website has been created as a platform for sharing inspirational information about Yoga - all the threads that bring up the divinity in us all. Various branches of Yoga, be that Ayurveda, Mantra, Bhakti, different lineages of Yogic path, philosophy, Yogic techniques, scriptures, Sanskrit, holistic lifestyle, permaculture, etc. - all but the paths we thread to purify our self and realize. To come closer to our own true self. They have been defined and systematized. Those, proven by the time, were sifted through the multitude of choices and passed on through the generations of knowledgeable teachers. In the modern age of monopolies, rat race and "copy-paste-rebrand" sales, people mostly forget what it means to truly be authentic allowing the uninhibited creativity to take the reign. Lacking the grand view, most people stay unaware that history might have gone back in time beyond what's in the curriculum. Walking in the narrow deep trenches paved by the peers. 

My personal Yoga journey has been running up, down and in circles for more than 20 years. I have always been attracted to the transcendental. While being steadily shaped by the family to be equipped to survive, doing various degrees in finance, economics, management, hospitality, acquiring tradesmen skills of hairdressing, retailing, I have been often found at the high altitudes in the magnificent mountains of Central Asia, if not in solitude then in the company of uplifting beings. Always drawn to study civilizations, history, psychology, culture and an array of various esoteric teachings that helped me try to understand why people group in a particular way and why humankind faces downfall in evolution every now and then. My life has brought me up an absolutely optimistic person with unshakeable faith in the powers lying within. Infinite gratitude goes to the volumes of metaphysical material that inspired on the way, but most of all - to the people who have shared their wisdom. In the late teenage, I encountered Bhakti teachings of Swami Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada, transcendental meditation of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and wealth of works by a great Russian philosopher and painter Nicholas Roerich. Thanks to my Mother and Grandmother, I have been always drawn to fine arts and literature, thanks to my Grandfather, I have been roaming a child of the forest, knew how to survive in any conditions with the mightiest reverence to the plants and animals. In fact, teachers were so many in number that they could be able to fill in the whole spectrum of light the eye can see. All this treasure of the fundamental knowledge has not been given for granted, every being gifted their share without seeing the whole of mine. Thus the road to Yoga, so to say, was a bumpy one (and taught me that "what taste as nectar acts like a poison, what tastes as poison is the true nectar"). I have been called so many names in a lifetime that at some point, naturally, a deeper understanding evolved that I was not all those names. 

When only 17 years old still in my native country Kyrgyzstan, something magical happened when I got picked up by the teachings of the master of Yoga, where the fantastic Yoga manual "A Systematic Course in the Ancient Tantric Techniques of Yoga and Kriya" by Swami Satyananda Saraswati has taken me on a journey of a "straight" Yoga. Life is everything but straight, but there are teachers and teachings that smooth the path. This was one of such impressive and adequate work on Yoga, it had everything one needed to succeed in life. And I mean the true success, not the bells-n-whistles. Nevertheless, there are also powers hidden behind the scene - collectively called Karma - the sum total of the impressions made in a course of being that orchestrate the direction our soul takes. I was still nibbling on the first chapters of this massive volume on Yoga, when moved to Australia, having started and pushed the international software business, as well as marriage, while being torn in a gazillion directions trying to make sense of life. After the birth of my first boy, still deeply unsatisfied by IT business and marriage, after a chain of long water fasts, dramatic change in lifestyle, seeking the wholeness, I was looking to undertake a challenging icy mountain climb, and given that Australia did not have any to suit my ego at that time, but New Zealand's Mt Cook's season was closed for tourists, I searched the Internet for a retreat to catch a breath. To my surprise, just in 1.5hr car drive from my house, there was a Satyananda Yoga center, which caught my eye by its Yoga name and daily routine shared on the website of waking up at 5 in the morning and silence after 8pm. Just what I needed. It was 2009, and it was the year I started the unparalleled 1500hr Yoga Teacher training in Mangrove Mountain Yoga ashram, which happened to be a place with a 40-year old history of Yoga propagation in Australia. Not a Yoga studio, not a Yoga gym, not a Yoga Spa, it was a truly unique perfected home of Yoga. Unfortunately, the first years of the ashram in the 70s were shady and poorly unorganized, a sinuous senior visiting teacher, one of the unethical disciples of Satyananda, was installed to manage the organization, and child abuse and power misuse have been happening for the first 10 years. The place has been cleared of the vicious individual, reshaped itself by the selfless work of dedicated Yogis who come and go like bees in a beehive, and all who got to know about this part of the history have learned the multifaceted lesson about neglect and misuse of power. The ashram as an educational organization rose up tall with thousands of Yoga seekers calling it home, when suddenly in 2015, it suddenly made profit, and waves of sensationalist publications and lawsuits started tearing down this incredibly upright place to pieces, until it disappeared in 2019, tainting the name of Paramahamsa Satyananda Saraswati in Australia in dirt of fabrications. Very sad and unjust, but this is the culture of the 1st world where $ rule the ball, and the unaware mob does not see the culture from the cult. Despite all this, still, no matter what style of Yoga people teach, mostly everyone, consults hundreds of publications made by Swami Satyananda Saraswati - the founder of Bihar School Of Yoga - the largest Yoga institution in India, which throughout the 20th and 21st centuries has made the greatest contribution to the science of Yoga.

In the latest 10 years of my Yoga study, I have been privileged to travel well throughout India, studying with different masters and learning the origin of Vedic heritage, drinking the culture of Bharata land - an affectionate name of the Hindu continent, and the original cradle of civilization. At some point, pulled into a swirl of Buddhism, studying Siddha Yoga of South Indian tradition, made a two-year in-depth journey into Shamanic culture of tribes of Eurasia and South America, learning Kriyas, Jnana Yoga from the unsurpassable teachers, pilgrimaged to the multitude of Shakti Peeths - the most significantly charged places for the seeker of purity, my Sri Vidya teacher found me and a classical Hindustani music teacher found me as well, the journey goes on. It never ends.   

So here I am, with this humble attempt to create a free portal for people to share authentic knowledge, by people for people. 

Here we can upload files, video, audio, post articles, discuss, share events, list personal profiles as well as our Yoga-related organizations. Endless opportunities. Time to pull our energy out of monopolies like FBook.   


Over the years, a dream to create a space for Sangha with a deep prayer for the steady upliftment of all, deep transformation of the body-mind duo and quenching the heart’s most sacred thirst. With this Sankalpa, somehow, the seed grew strong, the soil has been gracefully fertile, and with the support of our Elders - Vedic, as well as the Aboriginal Land Custodians, blessings have nourished and brought it to life. Now, ShantiDwara Yoga Temple has been physically born in Middle Pocket, NSW, Australia with a multifunctional online portal to share the resources.


Feel free to join and share your inspiration for the good of all.

In faith,

Matarishvan

Days roll by, all different, all special, all precious. Here's a peek at how just one day at ShantiDwara came and went. Live it along with us, all in under 10 minutes. 

1

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-meridians in the body, and anga nyasa (superimposition of matrikas onto one’s own body temple).


Here is a list of sound tracks I uploaded for the students and anyone else interested to start somewhere.

Please, apologies for the quality of recording, singing and pronunciation. I am an eternal student, neither a Sanskrit scholar, nor a musician.

I fill honoured to share the limited knowledge in Mantra and am encouraging everyone to practice and do their own research, while polishing the skills over and over.


Recordings to refer for home practice (also find some traditional Hindu way of reciting on YT and sing along).

GURU ŚLOKA गुरु श्लोक with different melody - https://shantidwara.com/page/view-sound?id=13


 

PRAYER WHILE LIGHTING A LAMP:

(apologies for the noise on the background)


शुभं करोति कल्याणमारोग्यं धनसंपदा ।

शत्रुबुद्धिविनाशाय दीपज्योतिर्नमोऽस्तुते ॥


śubham karōti kalyāṇam 

ārōgyam dhana saṁpadaḥ |

śatrubuddhi vināśāya 

dīpa jyōtir namōstutē ||



दीपज्योतिः परब्रह्म दीपज्योतिर्जनार्दनः ।

दीपो हरतु मे पापं दीपज्योतिर्नमोऽस्तुते ॥


dīpajyotih parabrahma 

dīpajyotir janārdanah |

dīpo haratu me pāpaṁ 

dīpa jyōtir namōstutē ||


The accurate meaning of the mantra is: "I fold my hands before the light that brings prosperity, auspiciousness, good health, abundance of wealth and destruction of the enemy's intellect". Here, Darkness symbolizes enemy's intellect and with the arrival of light, darkness disappears. Likewise, light (God's Grace) destroys darkness (enemy's intellect). 


Salutations to the Light of the Lamp 

The Light of the Lamp represents the Supreme Brahman, the Light of the Lamp represents Janardhana (Sri Vishnu),

Let the Light of the Lamp Remove My Sins; 

Salutations to the Light of the Lamp.


śri nārada uvaca


praṇamya śirasā devam gaurīputram vināyakam । 

bhaktāvāsam smaren nityam āyu: kāmārtha siddhaye ॥ 1 ॥ 


With my head bowed, let me unceasingly worship in my mind the god Vinayaka, the son of Gauri, the refuge of his devotees, for the complete attainment of longevity, amorous desires and wealth.


prathamam vakratuṇḍam ca ekadantam dvitīyakam । 

tritīyam kriśṇapingākśam gajavaktram caturthakam ॥ 2 ॥ 


First, as the one with the twisted trunk. Second, as the one with the single tusk. Third, as the one with the fawn coloured eyes. Fourth, as the one with the elephants mouth.


lambodaram pancamam ca śaśṭham vikaṭameva ca । 

saptamam vighnarājam ca dhūmravarṇam tathāśṭamam ॥ 3 ॥ 


Fifth, as the pot-bellied one, Sixth, as the monstrous one, Seventh, as the king of obstacles, Eighth, as the smoke coloured one


navamam bhālacandram ca daśamam tu vināyakam । 

ekādaśam gaṇapatim dvādaśam tu gajānanam ॥ 4 ॥ 


Nineth, as the moon crested one, Tenth, as the remover of hindrances, Eleventh, as the Lord of the hordes, Twelfth, as the one with the elephants face.


dvādaśaitāni nāmāni trisandhyam yah paṭhen naraha । 

na ca vighnabhayam tasya sarvasiddhikaram prabho ॥ 5 ॥ 


Whosoever repeats these twelve names at dawn, noon and sunset, for them there is no fear of failure, nay, there is constant good fortune.

"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 mind is playing all the time. Often a combination of some of them, occasionally all of them at once this creates the most dramatic effect to the observer or participant, depending on what our presence tells us. All the emotions that spring into the play are sprouting from one of the original six Arishadvargas, which in turn can also be traced and reduced to the original one, somewhat like a telescopic lense.

Lobha - greed, miserliness, narrow minded; Mooladhara

Kama - lust, craze, desire, passion, obsession; Swadhisthana

Krodha - anger, hatred, motivation, aggression, dynamism; Manipura

Matsarya - envy, jealousy, show or vanity, and pride. Anahata

Moha - delusory emotional attachment, infatuation;  Vishuddha 

Mada or Ahankara - pride, stubborn mindedness, arrogance, superiority complex; Ajna


These are the 6 enemies, which can be made friends with by simply acknowledging their existence and interaction in our life.


Amritananda Natha Saraswati writes "All these binding negatives come from the fixation that “I am this body, mind and intellect and these are mine. ... Anger against these children of “I” and “mine” pushes them away. Thus we become a life in everyone. We become mothers to this illusory world giving the positive elements protection and nourishment.”


KAMA... Wanting something that is not mine is lust. Desire for riches, property, honour, status, fame, children. Attachment to all things of this sensory world.

KRODHA... The object of lust not coming to me creates anger.  Yearning to harm others and cause ruin to them.

LOBHA... The object of my lust comes to me and the emotion that I should not lose it creates possessiveness. Determination that no one else should partake of even a small fraction of what one has earned or what one has. Even in times of distress, one's possessions should not be diminished by use.

MOHA... The feeling that I cannot live without it is delusion. Seeing life incorrectly. Unable to see reality, living in illusion. The delusion that some people are nearer to one than others and the desire to please them more than others, leading to exertions for earning and accumulating for their sake.

MADA/AHANKARA... The sense that only I have it and no one else has it is pride. The false pride that develops when one feels that he has either scholarship or strength or riches or high birth or good looks or fame, more than others. Even when one has not got these, Mada makes men move about without reverence for elders and consideration for others' feelings and stimulates craving only for one's own comfort and security. Mada is extreme egoism or self - centeredness.

MATSARYA... The sense that others have it and I don’t have it is jealousy. Finding it intolerable that others are as happy as oneself, Matsarya makes one miserable; over other s good fortune.  Only I should have all things  is the feeling of Matsarya.





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 important in order to realise specific practices, for example, meditating on the syllable 'Ah' in the navel chakra is important for the practice of Tummo, or inner fire, the basis of the 6 yogas of Naropa. Meditating on the 'Hum' in the heart chakra is important for realising the Clear Light of bliss and emptiness. Meditating on the throat chakra is important for lucid dreaming and the practices of dream yoga. And meditating on the crown chakra is important for consciousness projection, either to another world, or into another body." (Naropa)

Generally speaking, just knowing about chakras is already doing its wonderful job, redirecting the normally wondering senses within. But practicing Yoga Of Sleep (do not confuse with Yoga Nidra, it is another meditation) opens up the portals to the subconscious mind and allows to seek guidance within through lucid dreaming and ability to decipher the mind's keys.

Dear Gurumayee .I have just uploaded a pdf book titled Shiva the Outlaw written by Sadhguru. Please let me known whether it has been uploaded properly. Namoh Namoh. Will be in touch tomorrow.🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻❤❤❤

I fill honoured to share the limited knowledge in Mantra and am encouraging everyone to practice and do their own research, while polishing the skills over and over.


Recordings to refer for home practice (also find some traditional Hindu way of reciting on YT and sing along).

GURU ŚLOKA गुरु श्लोक with different melody - https://shantidwara.com/page/view-sound?id=13


 

PRAYER WHILE LIGHTING A LAMP:

(apologies for the noise on the background)


शुभं करोति कल्याणमारोग्यं धनसंपदा ।

शत्रुबुद्धिविनाशाय दीपज्योतिर्नमोऽस्तुते ॥


śubham karōti kalyāṇam 

ārōgyam dhana saṁpadaḥ |

śatrubuddhi vināśāya 

dīpa jyōtir namōstutē ||



दीपज्योतिः परब्रह्म दीपज्योतिर्जनार्दनः ।

दीपो हरतु मे पापं दीपज्योतिर्नमोऽस्तुते ॥


dīpajyotih parabrahma 

dīpajyotir janārdanah |

dīpo haratu me pāpaṁ 

dīpa jyōtir namōstutē ||


The accurate meaning of the mantra is: "I fold my hands before the light that brings prosperity, auspiciousness, good health, abundance of wealth and destruction of the enemy's intellect". Here, Darkness symbolizes enemy's intellect and with the arrival of light, darkness disappears. Likewise, light (God's Grace) destroys darkness (enemy's intellect). 


Salutations to the Light of the Lamp 

The Light of the Lamp represents the Supreme Brahman, the Light of the Lamp represents Janardhana (Sri Vishnu),

Let the Light of the Lamp Remove My Sins; 

Salutations to the Light of the Lamp.


śri nārada uvaca


praṇamya śirasā devam gaurīputram vināyakam । 

bhaktāvāsam smaren nityam āyu: kāmārtha siddhaye ॥ 1 ॥ 


With my head bowed, let me unceasingly worship in my mind the god Vinayaka, the son of Gauri, the refuge of his devotees, for the complete attainment of longevity, amorous desires and wealth.


prathamam vakratuṇḍam ca ekadantam dvitīyakam । 

tritīyam kriśṇapingākśam gajavaktram caturthakam ॥ 2 ॥ 


First, as the one with the twisted trunk. Second, as the one with the single tusk. Third, as the one with the fawn coloured eyes. Fourth, as the one with the elephants mouth.


lambodaram pancamam ca śaśṭham vikaṭameva ca । 

saptamam vighnarājam ca dhūmravarṇam tathāśṭamam ॥ 3 ॥ 


Fifth, as the pot-bellied one, Sixth, as the monstrous one, Seventh, as the king of obstacles, Eighth, as the smoke coloured one


navamam bhālacandram ca daśamam tu vināyakam । 

ekādaśam gaṇapatim dvādaśam tu gajānanam ॥ 4 ॥ 


Nineth, as the moon crested one, Tenth, as the remover of hindrances, Eleventh, as the Lord of the hordes, Twelfth, as the one with the elephants face.


dvādaśaitāni nāmāni trisandhyam yah paṭhen naraha । 

na ca vighnabhayam tasya sarvasiddhikaram prabho ॥ 5 ॥ 


Whosoever repeats these twelve names at dawn, noon and sunset, for them there is no fear of failure, nay, there is constant good fortune.

"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 mind is playing all the time. Often a combination of some of them, occasionally all of them at once this creates the most dramatic effect to the observer or participant, depending on what our presence tells us. All the emotions that spring into the play are sprouting from one of the original six Arishadvargas, which in turn can also be traced and reduced to the original one, somewhat like a telescopic lense.

Lobha - greed, miserliness, narrow minded; Mooladhara

Kama - lust, craze, desire, passion, obsession; Swadhisthana

Krodha - anger, hatred, motivation, aggression, dynamism; Manipura

Matsarya - envy, jealousy, show or vanity, and pride. Anahata

Moha - delusory emotional attachment, infatuation;  Vishuddha 

Mada or Ahankara - pride, stubborn mindedness, arrogance, superiority complex; Ajna


These are the 6 enemies, which can be made friends with by simply acknowledging their existence and interaction in our life.


Amritananda Natha Saraswati writes "All these binding negatives come from the fixation that “I am this body, mind and intellect and these are mine. ... Anger against these children of “I” and “mine” pushes them away. Thus we become a life in everyone. We become mothers to this illusory world giving the positive elements protection and nourishment.”


KAMA... Wanting something that is not mine is lust. Desire for riches, property, honour, status, fame, children. Attachment to all things of this sensory world.

KRODHA... The object of lust not coming to me creates anger.  Yearning to harm others and cause ruin to them.

LOBHA... The object of my lust comes to me and the emotion that I should not lose it creates possessiveness. Determination that no one else should partake of even a small fraction of what one has earned or what one has. Even in times of distress, one's possessions should not be diminished by use.

MOHA... The feeling that I cannot live without it is delusion. Seeing life incorrectly. Unable to see reality, living in illusion. The delusion that some people are nearer to one than others and the desire to please them more than others, leading to exertions for earning and accumulating for their sake.

MADA/AHANKARA... The sense that only I have it and no one else has it is pride. The false pride that develops when one feels that he has either scholarship or strength or riches or high birth or good looks or fame, more than others. Even when one has not got these, Mada makes men move about without reverence for elders and consideration for others' feelings and stimulates craving only for one's own comfort and security. Mada is extreme egoism or self - centeredness.

MATSARYA... The sense that others have it and I don’t have it is jealousy. Finding it intolerable that others are as happy as oneself, Matsarya makes one miserable; over other s good fortune.  Only I should have all things  is the feeling of Matsarya.





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 important in order to realise specific practices, for example, meditating on the syllable 'Ah' in the navel chakra is important for the practice of Tummo, or inner fire, the basis of the 6 yogas of Naropa. Meditating on the 'Hum' in the heart chakra is important for realising the Clear Light of bliss and emptiness. Meditating on the throat chakra is important for lucid dreaming and the practices of dream yoga. And meditating on the crown chakra is important for consciousness projection, either to another world, or into another body." (Naropa)

Generally speaking, just knowing about chakras is already doing its wonderful job, redirecting the normally wondering senses within. But practicing Yoga Of Sleep (do not confuse with Yoga Nidra, it is another meditation) opens up the portals to the subconscious mind and allows to seek guidance within through lucid dreaming and ability to decipher the mind's keys.

Dear Gurumayee .I have just uploaded a pdf book titled Shiva the Outlaw written by Sadhguru. Please let me known whether it has been uploaded properly. Namoh Namoh. Will be in touch tomorrow.🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻❤❤❤
