Rediscover love for self and the Whole

I had such a fantastic time in Taiwan last week teaching the second module of Mothers Love Kids Yoga Teachers Training. During this training, I had added one important process for the six aspiring teachers – Love Samyama so that they could once again re-connect to the original space of love for self and the Whole. Some of the teachers were moved to tears as they had disconnected from this space for so long. This is such an important click especially for teachers who are going to work with children’s space. Their ability to experience this space of love for self and the Whole will help them transmit the qualities of self-love to the kids. Unless we are able to relate to this pure space of love for self and the whole, we can’t experience the feeling of being worthy, creative and alive.

Let me explain the meaning of samyama. I learned the secrets of Samyama from my Guru, a living incarnation – Bhagawan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam (fondly known as Swamiji). He revealed that samyama is the technology through which the extraordinary experiences and power; which are in your super consciousness, are expressed through your body to the world. Your super consciousness is all knowing, all pervading, but preparing your body and mind to radiate some of those great powers and expressing those powers, that technology is samyama. Samyama is the essence of the Hindu tradition, the core of Vedic tradition.  Samyama is the “applied science” of pure yoga science. Science has 2 parts – theories & applied in practical life. Samyama is the applied science that brings value to pure science. Powers like materialization, teleportation, levitation etc. are a part of Hindu Vedic tradition, the applied science is used to inspire people towards pure science. All the juicy part of Sanatana Hindu Dharma is the applied science.

Science of Pranayama

For the first time, I am going to share the science of Pranayama in the second module of Mothers Love Kids Yoga Teachers Training next month. The content is not confined to what I have learned in my yoga teachers training but I will also be transmitting the experiences in my muscle memory and bio memory from the initiation I received from my Guru, Bhagawan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam (fondly known as Swamiji).  

What is pranayama?

The word pranayama comprises of two roots: prana plus ayama. ‘Prana’ means ‘vital energy’ or ‘life force’. ‘Ayama’is defined as ‘extension’ or ‘expansion’. Therefore, the word ‘Pranayama’ means ‘extension and expansion of prana’.

Understanding desire from Vedic tradition

Do you know that the desire to exist is not something separate from existing?

In the Vedic tradition, there is one truth called Sat Chit Ananda – existing is Sat, knowing that you exist is Chit, celebrating your existing is Ananda. Existing, Sat is eternal because it is eternal, the desire to expand is also eternal. The desire to expand is not a crime, only if the desire to expand comes from abusing, grabbing or destroying others, it is a crime. Hence expansion is not a crime, desire to exist is not a crime. The Yoga Sutra 172 Chapter 4 verse 10 solves one of the important problems of physics, the continuous expansion of the Universe. Existence means expansion. Anything that exists expands, anything expands exists – this is the Cosmic Law. Therefore, if you have the desire to exist and the desire to expand, it is not a crime as taught to you by some other religions.
