Joy!

Last night, I was at the movies.  I was curious if I could go into meditation without pranayama.  I would close my eyes, do the Jyoti mudra (without using my hands) and immediately the prana would flow back from my hands and start moving within to the Brahmanadi.  My hanands and feet would become numb.  …

Guidelines for Yoga / Rules of Yoga

I changed the name from rules to guidelines. The reason for calling it rules, is because in my opinion, doing yoga is like going into battle where one is constantly battling ones sanskaras.  In other words, in order to win this battle, certain rules must be followed. If one reads any scriptures regarding Yoga and …

More clarifications

These clarifications are from Yogananda Maharaj and some from personal experience.  There are three worlds.  Gross physical world, the subtle world and the causal or karana world.  The three forces, a sort of autonomic intelligence, hidden from the human eye are Virata, Hiranyagarbha and Ishwara respectively.  To give an eg.  the function of Virata is …

For …

A beacon!

Every human being is a beacon!  They are constantly emiting and transmiting vibes which attracts the universal vibrations which translate into karam.  This has been said by Patanjali, Mirdad and all great souls.  Every thought we have becomes a nidus which attracts similar universal vibrations.  One should constantly, no matter what and no matter what …

Nada

A common misconception is the hearing of Nada.  The truest of true nada occurs when the prana actually ascends in the sushumna.  These nadas have the following characteristics 1) Extremely soft, no longer heard by the physical body 2) Extremely pleasing and one truly just wants to hear it again and again 3) On hearing …

Jesus Christ

Today, I was reminded of a few experiences I had about Jesus.  They were within the last 15 years.  1)  I was new to USA and had no idea or concept about Good Friday.  I was deep in meditation and I had a very clear and concise vision of Jesus.  Later that day, while driving …

Potpourri

I tried to hide the fact I had eye glasses from Gurudev.  So, I made sure I did not wear my eye glasses or anything around him.  However, out of the blue a few days after I was with him, he suddenly said, if you do Tratak properly, you wont need eye glasses.  This was …
