#kundalini #yoga Image
When the mind is fixed at Kutastha, a strong current of prana rises through the chakras in the spine producing at the ajna chakra a wondrous sound called nada.
#kundalini #yoga Image
It is called the conch shell of Sri Krishna because it is heard at the ajna chakra seat of Kutastha or krishna consciousness. With this sound a light appears at the ajna chakra~ Sri Sri Pranahamsa Yoganandaji Maharaj

Chakra 5 Vishuddhi
#Yoga #Kundalini #spirituality

Vishuddhi chakra is 'purification center'. Sanskrit word shuddhi means to purify; in this chakra the purifying a harmonizing of all opposites takes place. Vishuddhi is also known as 'nectar & poison center'.
#Yoga #Kundalini Image
Here, the nectar which drips down from bindu is said to be split into the pure form and the poison. The poison is discarded and the pure nectar then nourishes the body, ensuring excellent health and longevity.
#Yoga #Kundalini #spirituality Image
Vishuddhi represents a state of openness in which life is regarded as the provider of experiences that lead to greater understanding. One ceases to continually avoid the unpleasant aspects of life and seek the pleasant. #Yoga #Kundalini #spirituality Image

Paramahamsa Yogananda teaches Kriya Yoga which was rediscovered by Lahiri Mahasaya in 19th century. Main problem with Kriya Yoga is, everyone says my kriya is original taught by Lahiri Mahasaya; hence we more Kriya masters than Kriya disciples.
#Yoga #spirituality Image
Sadhguru’s technique is somewhat relatable to Kriya Yoga as both use focusing on the third eye whereas TM and AOL practices are against such things.
#Yoga #spirituality Image
However, it should be noted that the grandmaster of Kriya Yoga, Lahiri Mahasaya himself was against building any organizations or turning people into monks.

Kundalini. Chakras. Bodies.

Bindu visarga

Location or seat of bindu is at the top back of head, exactly at the spot where Hindu brahmins leave a tuft of hair growing. Although this custom is still being followed, its original purpose is completely forgotten.
#Yoga #kundalini Image
In Sanskrit that tuft of hair is called shikha, which means 'the flame of fire'. Here, the word 'flame' stands for the flame of vasanas or the hidden karmas belonging to the previous life.
#Yoga #kundalini #spirituality Image
During the period of sandhya, when the child underwent the thread ceremony and was initiated into mantra, they used to hold and tighten this tuft as much as possible and then tie it.

Aanahata chakra---

Love overcomes ego ------------Anahata chakra can be aroused and awakened by the practice of bhakti yoga, in which there is no place for egotistical consciousness.
#Yoga #spirituality ImageImage
Your devotion can be for God or guru. It is easy to practice devotion to God because he does not check your ego, or even if he does, you don't know it. But when you practice devotion to guru, the first thing he does is 'egodectomy.'
#Yoga #spirituality Image
So when you direct your devotion to guru, you have lots of difficulties. If you only meet your guru from time to time, the problems are invisible, but if you live with him, the problems are greater.

The vision of yoga is total. Yoga means the total. That is why Krishna is called a mahayogi, one who has attained to the highest yoga.
#yoga #SanatanaDharma Image
There are any number of people who claim to be yogis, but they are not really yogis because they all have their choices, they all lack unity and integration. Choicelessness is yoga.
#yoga #SanatanaDharma Image
It is impossible to fit Krishna into logical moulds and patterns, because he does not accept your logic, he does not recognize any divisions of life as you are used to doing.

How does yoga benefit your brain?

#Sringeri #Jagadguru #SriSri Chandrashekhara Bharati Mahaswamiji explains the importance of #Karma in simple terms & how it acts as a cleansing agent :

the real happiness lies in us, we are not aware of it because of ignorance. This ignorance does not allow us to escape the attractions of worldly pleasures. We deweed, put manure, water and then sow the seeds in the field. We also continuously watch the growth

of the plants to get good harvests. So we should de-weed our minds of the #adharma or wrong behavior, manure it with #dharma or righteousness, and observe our behavior continuously and carefully to cleanse the mind. Then the mind becomes worthy and potent to realise the

🧵A #MustRead : #Jagadguru #Shankaracharya #SriSri #Chandrashekara Bharathi Mahaswamigal on the "Conquest of Desire":

"Do not depend on outside things to make yourself happy.."

To call a man healthy, it is quite unnecessary to postulate of him that he had some disease..

before and that he is now cured of it. Freedom from sickness is a condition of health and certainly not an antecedent sickness and a recovery from it. Similarly, happiness can only mean freedom from unhappiness. And it cannot be a necessary condition of happiness that it

should have been preceded by a state of unhappiness. The health which is not preceded by sickness is more natural, true and permanent than the one obtained on the cessation of a sickness. Similarly, happiness which is not preceded by a mental disturbance is sure to be more

How do you move your kundalini energy out of your head?

People who feel that kundalini energy is “stuck” in their head usually say that it’s the sort that rises from the base of the spine and stops in one of three specific places:

at the base of the skull, at the prominence of the occipital bone, and at the crown of the head about two inches above the fontanel.

Myth: Kundalini awakening is about power.

*Adding my insights, bringing another vision. Not the kind of stuff you will ever find on google.
#yoga #Kundalini #Chakra
Kundalini awakening is not about acquisition of powers, it’s actually about cessation of being. Kundalini will lead you to enlightenment, which is nothing but death, the final death and getting into eternal bliss.
#yoga #Kundalini #Chakra
You have a soul, the soul acts on kundalini and chakras, the chakra system acts on nervous system and nervous system acts on bones and muscles.

Astral body is connected with physical body with Silver-Cord, this cord is invisible but very powerful, it is flexible and magical because of this silver cord you receive the signals and information about your physical body.
#yoga #Kundalini #Chakra
1. E.g. Digestion or urination process occurs & when your physical body needs to go to washroom while you are in astral plane, your subconscious mind sends you signals through silver cord “Return Urgently” & you start seeing images of washrooms or clocks in your vision.
2. E.g. - If someone tries to wake you up or insect bites you then again your subconscious mind sends you signals and you hear voices like “wake up” or seeing insects.
