24 Yoga Dharanas

 



1. Focus the mind on something inside or beyond the body. Maintain the position for a while. Dharana is my name. You'll have to do something on a regular basis. Dharana is the foundation of Laya-Yoga.

2. Purify the mind first by doing Yama, Niyama, and Dharana, and then move on to Dharana.
 Concentration is useless if it is not pure. Concentration is a skill that certain occultists possess. They, on the other hand, have no decent character. That is why they have not made much spiritual gains.

3. Those who have a steady Asana and have cleansed the Yoga Nadis will find it easier to focus. If you eliminate all distractions, the concentration would be intense. A real Brahmachari who has maintained his Veerya would be able to concentrate extremely well.

4. Some rash, eager students rush into Dharana without first completing the required ethical preparation. This is a huge mistake. The value of ethical perfection cannot be overstated.

5. You should focus on any of the seven Chakras on the inside and any Devata, Hari, Krishna, or Devi on the outside.

6. Focus requires a high level of attention. He who has honed his focus capacity will be able to concentrate well. A man packed with love and all kinds of wonderful impulses can hardly focus on something for more than a second. Like a monkey, his mind would be racing.

7. He who has mastered Pratyahara (withdrawing the senses from the objects) will be able to focus well. You'll need to take the spiritual journey one step at a time, stage by stage. To begin, lay the foundation of Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, and Pratyahara. Only then can Dharana and Dhyana's superstructure be successful.

8. You should be able to see the focus of concentration clearly even though it is not there. You must be able to recall the mental image at all time. You should be able to do this without too much hassle if you have decent concentration skills.

9. You should focus on the tick-tock sound of a watch, the flame of a candle, or some other object that is appealing to the mind in the early stages of meditation. This is an example of concrete focus. There will be no focus until the mind has anything to rest on.
A fun thing may be set in the head. Fixing the mind on any object that it dislikes is extremely difficult at first.

10. You must reduce your worldly habits if you wish to improve your concentrating capacity. Every day, for at least two hours, you must observe Mouna.

11. Concentrate on the object of focus until the mind is well founded on it.
Carry the eye back to the object as it wanders away.

12. The other senses are disabled when focus is strong and heavy. A individual with tremendous psychic abilities who practices focus for one hour a day has tremendous psychic abilities. He'll have a good desire to succeed.

13. Vedantins attempt to retrain the mind to focus on Atman. Their Dharana is this. Hatha and Raja Yogins focus their attention on the six Chakras. Bhaktas are solely focused on their Ishta Devata. Other meditation objects are identified in Trataka and Laya Yoga. Both aspirants must be able to concentrate.

14. Focus practitioners progress rapidly. They can complete any task faster and more efficiently. What some can do in six hours can be accomplished in half an hour by anyone with a focused mind. Concentration purifies and calms raging impulses, activates mind currents, and clarifies concepts. Concentration often aids a person's material advancement.
In his office or business-house, he can produce excellent results. What was previously cloudy and hazy becomes simpler and definite; what was previously complicated becomes simple; and what was previously nuanced, befuddling, and confounding becomes easily graspable. Concentration allows you to do something. Nothing is difficult for someone who practices focus on a daily basis.
Concentration is needed for clairvoyance, clairaudience, mesmerism, hypnotism, thought-reading, music, mathematics, and other sciences.

15. Find a peaceful place to retreat to. Close your eyes for a moment. When you dream about an apple, see what happens.
You might consider its color, form, and scale, as well as different sections such as the skin, pulp, and seeds. You might consider the countries from which it is manufactured, such as Australia or Kashmir. Its acidic or sweet flavor, as well as its effects on the digestive system and blood, can come to mind. Other fruits' ideas can also attempt to join into the rule of association. The mind might start to entertain any other unrelated thoughts. It could start to stray. It might consider seeing a friend at 4 p.m. at the Railway Station. It might consider buying a towel, a tin of tea, or some biscuits. You should strive to follow a clear path of thinking. There should be no pause in the thought process. You must not entertain any other thoughts that are unrelated to the current subject. The ego will do everything it can to stay in its old grooves. You'll have to put in a lot of effort at first. It's a little like trying to climb a steep slope. When you achieve concentration success, you will be overjoyed and overjoyed.

16. Just as physical laws such as gravity and cohesion exist in the physical universe, definite mental laws such as association, relativity, and contiguity operate in the mental plane or thought-world. These rules should be well understood by those who practice concentration.
When the mind considers an entity, it can also consider its attributes and components. When it considers a source, it can also consider its consequence.

17. You will get new ideas each time you read the Bhagavad Gita or the Vicar of Wakefield with attention. You can gain knowledge by concentrating. In the realm of mental consciousness, subtle esoteric interpretations will emerge. You will comprehend the metaphysical significance's inner depth.

18. Don't fight your mind while you're concentrating on an object. Tension can be avoided in the body. Continuously think about the object in a gentle way. When one is starving and recovering from an acute illness, it is very difficult to practice concentration.

19. Don't be bothered if feelings interfere with your focus. They're going to die too. You'll have to tax your willpower if you want to scare them further. Get a nonchalant manner. The Vedantin uses the formula "I am a Sakshi with mental adjustments" to push away emotions. It makes no difference to me. “Get out of here.” The Bhakta actually prays, and God responds with assistance.

20. Develop a good habit of focusing on a variety of objects, both gross and subtle, of different sizes, over time. When you sit down to concentrate, the mood will come to you quickly and effortlessly.

21. Focus is needed when reading a novel. It's pointless to skim through the pages in a rushed way. One page could suffice. Bring the book to a close. Pay attention to what you've read. Find parallel lines in the Gita, Upanishads, and other sacred texts.

22. At first, the process of concentrating is disgusting and exhausting for a neophyte. In his mind and brain, he would carve fresh grooves. He develops a strong interest after a period of time, say two or three months. He's experiencing a different kind of pleasure. The only way to get rid of the miseries and tribulations is to concentrate. Your only responsibility is to gain discipline, and it is by concentration that you can achieve the ultimate beatitude, Self-realization. When it comes to concentration, charity and Rajasuya Yajna are nothing.

23. Do not want to fulfill impulses that emerge in the subconscious. As soon as they appear, reject them. Desires may be diminished over time by gradual exercise. The mind's modifications would now be greatly reduced.

24. You must eliminate all behavioral weaknesses, superstitions, and erroneous and incorrect Samskaras. Only then would you be able to focus your thoughts.




A YOGI'S POWER



A Yogi forgets about his or her body in order to focus his or her attention on the Lord. 

By learning breath management and manipulating his nervous system, he conquers heat and cold.

Via the practice of Bhastrika Pranayama, a Yogi induces psychic heat in the body.

He doesn't like being exposed to extremes of temperature.

He lies on the snow and uses the heat from his body to melt it.

A Yogi uses a sheet dipped in very cold water to protect his body and dries it with the Yoga heat emitted from his body. Some experts have dried up to thirty sheets in a single night.

In the end, a perfect Yogi cremates his body using the Yogic heat provided by his Yoga strength.

8 IMPORTANT YOGA SIDDHIS



In the direction of Kundalini Yoga, an experienced Purnayogi has eight main Siddhis: Anima, Mahima, Laghima, Garima, Prapti, Prakamya, Vasitvam, and Ishitvam.

1. Anima: The Yogi will shrink to whatever size he wants.

2. Mahima: The antithesis of Anima. He has the ability to grow to whatever size he desires. He has the ability to enlarge his body to enormous proportions. He has the ability to occupy the whole universe. He will take on the form of Virat Svarupa.

3. Laghima: He has the ability to turn his body into cloth or feathers. This Siddhi is used for Vayustambhanam. Control is also exerted to a limited extent in Jalastambhanam. Plavini Pranayama makes the body lighter. Swallowing huge draughts of air causes the Yogi's real gravity to decrease. With the assistance of this Siddhi, the Yogi will fly across the heavens. In a single second, he will fly thousands of miles.

4.Garima is the polar opposite of Laghima. The Yogi's specific gravity increases as a result of this. Through drinking draughts of air, he will make his body as big as a mountain.

5. Prapti: When a Yogi stands on the ground, he or she has the ability to hit the highest objects. He has the ability to touch the sun, moon, and sky. The Yogi obtains his desired artifacts and divine energies through this Siddhi. He gains the ability to forecast future events, as well as clairvoyance, clairaudience, telepathy, thought-reading, and other abilities. He may communicate with animals and birds in their native tongues. He can also communicate in languages he is unfamiliar with. He has the ability to heal all illnesses.

6. Prakamya: He has the ability to dive into the sea and emerge at any moment. Benares' late Trilinga Swami used to spend six months living under the Ganges. It's the method by which a Yogi will become invisible at times. Some writers describe it as the ability to access another person's body (Parakaya Pravesh). Sri Sankara joined the body of Benares' Raja Amaruka. In Southern India, Tirumular penetrated the body of a shepherd. This was also done by Raja Vikramaditya. It's also the ability to maintain a youthful beauty for an extended period of time. This was the influence of Raja Yayati.

7. Vashitvam: This is the force of taming and keeping wild animals under order. It is the ability to hypnotize others and make them obey one's desires and commands with the use of willpower. It is the control of one's impulses and passions. It is the ability to subjugate men, women, and the elements.

8. Ishitvam: Attaining spiritual power is what Ishitvam is all about. The Yogi ascends to the role of Lord of the Universe.

The Yogi who has this strength has the ability to bring the dead back to life. The deceased could be brought back to life by Kabir, Tulsidas, Akalkot Swami, and others.

7 INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOGA SIDDHIS


1. The Yogi achieves a flawless physical body by Hatha Yoga—Rupalavanya Bala Vajrasam-hanana Kaya Sampat. “Beauty, elegance, resilience, and adamantine hardness are the characteristics of a flawless body.” Kaya Sampat encompasses the ability to withstand intense cold and heat (Titiksha), as well as the ability to survive without water or food (perfection of body).

2. Since the Hatha Yogi's body is perfect and strong, his mind is also firm and focused. He scales the highest rung of the Yogic ladder and achieves Immortality through Yogic Samadhi through the rituals of Dharana and Dhyana. The Yogi who has attained the highest level will possess all of the major and minor Siddhis.

3. The sum of meditation at various Chakras and Tattvas, as well as the awakening of Kundalini, determines the attainment of energies. Mudras, Bandhas, Asanas, and Pranayamas will also aid in the acquisition of Siddhis.

4. The Siddhis obtained through the practice of Mudras can also be obtained through the practice of Bandhas, Asanas, Pranayamas, and emphasis on various Chakras. That is dependent on the aspirants' temperament and capacity. One exercise and various techniques may be used to achieve the desired objective. As a result, if a particular exercise fails to yield results, the individual must resort to other options.

5. Many of the eight main Siddhis are not achievable at this time (Kali Yuga), when the vast majority of people's bodies and minds are not in good enough shape. Several Siddhas have the ability to practice some of the Siddhis even today. When people ask them to do something, they either hide or say, "I don't know." They don't give a damn about these Siddhis. Their aim is to dismiss these as unreal and strive for the top. They're the only ones who can really call themselves Yogins. Many people have the ability to use those abilities but have no idea how they do it.

6. It is possible to hear the minds of someone. In London, a man receives the divine message of Indian sages. Several people have been seen killing the venom of cobras by singing Mantras or just touching them. Incurable conditions may be healed by offering any kind of leaves. There are men who can teach you all about your life, present, and future. Some may have the ability to see astral beings.

Yogic rituals are responsible for stopping the functions of the heart and transforming the minds of others, among other things.

7. Nowadays, it is difficult to locate a Yogi who has any of these abilities. When a person gains those abilities, he is influenced by Maya and false Tushti (satisfaction) and uses the abilities for his livelihood or fame. As a result, he is unable to progress to achieve perfection. The Yogic Kriyas haven't made a mistake. You do not lose hope. You will achieve success if you have faith, focus, honesty, and earnestness.

8 Alternative Yoga Mudras



Sambhavi, Manduki, Aswini, Tadagi, Matangini, Bhuchari, Aghori, and a variety of other Mudras are among them. I've just listed the most appropriate Mudras here. Refer to my book "Hatha Yoga" for detailed advice on all of the Mudras.



MUDRAS AND BANDHAS INSTRUCTIONS:


1. The Maha Mudra, Maha Bandha, and Maha Vedha are all part of the same community. They resemble three phases of a single workout. Mula Bandha, Uddiyana Bandha, and Jalandhara Bandha belong to a different community. Mula Bandha is used in Puraka, Kumbhaka, and Rechaka, as well as meditation and Japa. During Rechaka, Uddiyana Bandha is performed, and during Kumbhaka, Jalandhara Bandha is performed.

2. Mudras and Bandhas, as other Yogic Kriyas, can be performed when the stomach is empty. Mudras can be practiced according to the same general guidelines as Asanas and Pranayamas.

3. The advantages conferred can not be realized only by the use of Mudras. Pranayamas, Asanas, Japa, and other Yogic Kriyas must all be combined.

4. Khechari Mudra must be performed under the supervision of a Khechari Guru. Cutting the lower tendon at regular intervals should be performed with caution. If aspirants begin this Kriya after the age of 25, when the muscles and nerves have stiffened, they may not be effective.

5. Advanced courses such as Khechari, Shakti Chalana, Vajroli, and others need not be practiced by anyone. Aspirants can check with the Guru to see whether they are physically fit for such advanced exercises, as well as whether they meet the other conditions for the course.

6. Tadagi Mudra is another name for Uddiyana Bandha. Matangini Mudra refers to the Seet-Krama and Vyut-Krama . Mula Bandha is what you can do. Allow it to go. This is all I keep coming back to.

It's known as Aswini Mudra.

7. Those who have not completed the preliminary portion of Khechari Mudra (lengthening the tongue) should merely turn their tongue upwards on the palate. Nabho Mudra, also known as Manduki Mudra, is a hand gesture.

8. Only deep mental attention will lead to true results in Mudras.

SOUNDS OF ANAHATA




The Yogin hears mystic noises during his trance, which he refers to as Anahata sounds. It is a symbol of Nadis' purification. Some students can distinctly hear it with one hand, while others can hear it with both. There are both harsh and soft noises. Through the noisy to the soft, and from the subtle to the subtler, one must reflect. Beginners can only detect the sound with their ears closed. Even without shutting their ears, advanced students can focus on the Anahata message. Omkara Dhvani is another name for Anahata tone. They start from the Sushumna Nadi's Anahata center.


Place yourself in your normal Asana. Thumbs are used to close the ears. Through the ears, listen to and observe the internal vibration. You will become deaf to all external sounds as a result of the sound you hear from within. Close your eyes as well. You can hear a lot of noisy noises at the start of the session. Later on, they can be heard in a more subdued manner. The subconscious, having initially focused on a single tone, becomes permanently attached to it and immersed in it. The subconscious becomes insensitive to external stimuli, becoming one with the sound as milk becomes one with water, and then quickly consumed in Chidakasa. The Chitta, which is still immersed in the inner scent, does not long for sensual things, as it is bound by the sweet fragrance or Nada and has lost its flitting existence, just as the bee drinking honey alone does not care about the odour.

The sound emanating from Pranava Nada, which is Brahman, is effulgent in nature.

The subconscious becomes engrossed in it. The mind persists as long as there is tone, so when it stops, it enters the Turiya state. That is the highest level of government. It is the condition of Unmani. Constant emphasis on Nada absorbs both the consciousness and the Prana. The body resembles a log of wood, with no sensations of hot or cold, pleasure or sorrow. Different types of sounds (Anahata sounds) emanate from the heart.

There are ten types of nada that can be heard by the ears. The first is the sound of a bell; the second is ‘Chini-chini'; the third is the sound of a conch; the fourth is the sound of a lute; the fifth is the sound of cymbals; the sixth is the tune of a flute; the seventh is the tune of a flute; the eighth is the voice of a drum (Bheri); the ninth is the sound of a double-drum (Mridanga); and the tenth.

You can't begin to hear something right after you shut your ears. You should focus and keep your attention on one thing. It's possible that the sound you hear now isn't one you'll hear every day. However, all of the ten Anahata sounds can be heard.

Laya via Nada, Anahata is the sound mentioned above. In the same way, focus at the tip of the nose (Nasikagra Drishti), the area between the two eyebrows (Bhrumadhya Drishti), meditation on the five Tattvas, Soham Mantra, Aham Brahma Asmi, Tat Tvam Asi Mahavakyas, and other methods will affect Laya.

BHAKTI YOGA



The reverence of elements and dead deities is the lowest rung on the Bhakti Yoga ladder. This is the most obscene form of worship. The worship of Rishis, Devas, and Pitris follows. Each person's confidence is influenced by his or her personality. The guy is made up of his religion, and he is even that. 

Those who worship Avataras such as Sri Rama, Krishna, and Narasimha belong to the third class. The Saguna method of worship is practiced by the four groups of Bhaktas mentioned above. The Bhaktas are the next group, who perform Nirguna Upasana on an attributeless Brahman. This is the highest level of worship, and is appropriate for educated people with good willpower and bold knowledge.

Ahamgraha Upasana or Jnana Yoga Sadhana is the name for this pose.

Bhakti is a skill that can be learned and developed. Bhakti can be infused by the practice of the Nava Vidha Bhakti (nine ways of devotion). Constant Satsanga, Japa, Prayer, Reflection, Svadhyaya, Bhajan, Svadhyaya, Svadhyaya, Svadhyaya, Svadhyay


Bhakti will be developed by service to saints, Dana, and Yatra, among other things.


 The 9 strategies for improving Bhakti are as follows:


  1. Sravana:—hearing of the Lilas of God
  2. Smarana:—remembering God always
  3. Kirtan:—singing His praise
  4. Vandana:—Namaskaras to God
  5. Archana:—offerings to God
  6. Pada-Sevana:—attendance
  7. Sakhya:—friendship
  8. Dasya:—service
  9. Atma-nivedana:—self-surrender to Guru or God


Sri Ramanuja suggests the following 10 Bhakti-development measures:


  1. Viveka:—discrimination
  2. Vimoka:—freedom from all else and longing for God
  3. Abhyasa:—continuous thinking of God
  4. Kriya:—doing good to others
  5. Kalyana:—wishing well to all
  6. Satyam:—truthfulness
  7. Arjavam:—integrity
  8. Daya:—compassion
  9. Ahimsa:—non-violence
  10. Dana:—charity


Namdev, Ramdas, Tulsidas, and others were among the fortunate ones who received God's Darshan. Yoga-Bhrashtas were these Bhaktas. They were born with a large number of divine Samskaras. They worshiped God with heartfelt reverence in many births. In their final incarnation, they didn't do any Sadhana. Because of the force of previous Bhakti Samskaras, their loyalty was normal and spontaneous. Ordinary people should take extreme steps and practice unique Sadhana in order to develop Bhakti quickly. To the greatest extent possible, new grooves and pathways must be carved in the old stony, devotionless middle. A Bhakta should lift his consciousness to a high degree and attain Para Bhakti, highest wisdom, and Supreme peace by daily meditation, Japa, Kirtan, service to Bhaktas, charity, Vrata, Tapas, Dhyana, and Samadhi. The meditator and the meditated, the worshipper and the revered, the Upasaka and the Upasya will merge in advanced stages of meditation. In Samadhi, Dhyana will come to an end. It is important to train on a daily basis.

A Hatha Yogi attains the highest level through the practice of various Mudras, Bandhas, Asanas, and other exercises; a Jnani attains the highest level through the practice of Sravana, Manana, and Nididhyasana; a Karma Yogin attains the highest level through selfless works (Nishkama Seva); a Bhakta attains the highest level through Bhakti and self-surrender; and In either instance, the goal is the same, but the strategies are different.


Concentration and meditation on Shakti, the primal spirit, is merely a variation of Jnana Yogic Sadhana. Raja Yoga is the practice of concentrating and meditating on the various energy centers. Hatha Yoga is characterized by concentration on the various Chakras and Nadis, as well as physical approaches for awakening Shakti. Concentration and concentration on the Devata, the presiding deity of the various inner Chakras, can be done as a Bhakti Yoga advanced course. Different Sadhana strategies should be mixed for swift results.

When the Bhakta meditates on the presiding deity or Devata, he imagines a different kind of God for each Chakra. For each Chakra, detailed explanations of God and the Devatas are provided in Mantra Shastra books. They take on the form of God in various ways depending on the attitude of the students. In any situation, the aspirants' perceptions and emotions differ. As a result, I'm not going to list any of the Devas and Devatas. When a person closes his eyes and meditates on the inner Chakras, he has numerous visions and sees God in various ways. That is the best he can hold on to. Only then is true growth feasible. The general knowledge presented in this Kundalini Yoga's theoretical section would undoubtedly aid concentration and meditation on the Chakras.

MANTRAS



Mantra has an influence on Kundalini awakening as well. Bhakti Yoga is a part of it.

Some aspirants should recite their Guru's Mantra tens of thousands of times. 

The Guru utters a specific Mantra during the Diksha of an Uttama Adhikari, and Kundalini is automatically awakened. 

The student's awareness is lifted to a very high level. This is dependent on the student's belief in his Guru and the Mantra. 

Mantras are extremely effective when obtained directly from the Guru. 

Only after receiving a proper Mantra from a Guru can aspirants in Kundalini Yoga begin this Mantra Sadhana. 



As a result, I will not go into great depth on this topic. Mantras can't help you whether you hear them from everyday people or from books. There are several different Mantras, and the Guru should choose one that will awaken the consciousness of a specific student.

YONI MUDRA

 


Sit in the Siddhasana position. 

Close your ears with your fingertips, your eyes with your index fingers, your nostrils with your middle fingers, your upper lips with your ring fingers, and your lower lips with your little fingers.

This is a lovely way to do Japa. 

Deepen the meditation and focus on the Shat Chakras and Kundalini.



This, like other Mudras, is not for all. In order to succeed in this, you would have to put in a lot of effort.

If you want to be effective in Brahmacharya, you must be well-established. Even Devas find it difficult to attain “Devanamapi durlabha.” 

As a result, understand the significance of this Mudra and use it with caution. Yoni Mudra is another name for Vajroli Mudra.

KHECHARI MUDRA



‘Kha' denotes Akasa, and ‘Chari' denotes movement. In the Akasa, the Yogi runs. The Akasa holds the tongue and the subconscious. As a result, it's known as Khechari Mudra.

Only a man who has completed the preliminary exercise under the direct supervision of a Guru who practices Khechari Mudra may perform this Mudra. The first step in this Mudra is to make the tongue so long that the tip of the tongue touches the gap between the two brows. 

Every week, the Guru would gradually cut the lower tongue tendon with a bright, clean knife. The cut edges can not join together again after being sprinkled with salt and turmeric powder. Cutting the tongue's lower tendon once a week for six months can be performed on a daily basis. 

Draw out the tongue by rubbing it with fresh butter. Take the tongue between your fingertips and move it back and forth. Milking the tongue entails grasping it and drawing it out, similar to how a milkman milks a cow's udder. You will lengthen the tongue in any of these ways to meet the forehead. This is the first part of the Khechari Mudra.

Then, when seated in Siddhasana, turn the tongue upwards and downwards until it touches the palate, close the posterior nasal openings with the reversed tongue, and focus the eyes on the gap between the two eye-brows. 

Prana can now go across the Sushumna Nadi, leaving the Ida and Pingala behind. The breathing will come to a halt. The tongue is resting on the mouth of the nectar well. Khechari Mudra is the name of the mudra.

The Yogi is cured of fainting, hunger, thirst, and laziness after practicing this Mudra. He is unaffected by infections, decay, aging, or death. 

This Mudra transforms an individual into an Oordhvaretas. Even virulent poison would not kill the Yogi because his body is packed with nectar. Yogins receives Siddhis from this Mudra. The greatest of all Mudras is Khechari.

VIPARITAKARANI MUDRA



Lay down on the deck. Raise your knees straight up. 

Hands can be used to support the buttocks. 

The elbows should be resting on the field. 

Maintain your composure. The light is at the navel's root, and the moon is at the palate's root. 

The method of bringing the sun upward and carrying the moon downward is known as Viparitakarani Mudra. The sun's and moon's roles are reversed. 

Do it for a minute on the first day. Increase the time to three hours gradually. In six months, lines and gray hair on the skin vanish. 

Death is conquered by the Yogin who does this for three hours a day. As the gastric fire rises, those who practice this Mudra for an extended period of time can drink some light refreshment, such as milk, as soon as the Kriya is completed. Viparitakarani Mudra is another name for Sirshasana.

SHAKTI CHALANA MUDRA



In Siddhasana, sit in a secluded spot. Forcibly draw in the air and join it with Apana. 

Mula Bandha should be done before the Vayu reaches the Sushumna. 

Through maintaining the breath, the Kundalini awakens and travels through Sushumna to Brahmarandhra, feeling suffocated.

Sit in the Siddhasana position. Slowly beat the Kanda with the foot, which should be kept above the ankle. Tadana Kriya is the name of the practice. 

Kundalini can also be awoken using this form. It is possible to become a Siddha by practicing this Mudra.

VAJROLI MUDRA



In Hatha Yoga, this is an essential Yogic Kriya. To achieve complete success in this Kriya, you would need to put in a lot of effort. 

This act is performed by a small number of individuals who are specialists in it. Yogic students draw water first from a silver tube (specially made catheter) inserted 12 inches into the urethra.

They draw milk after enough practice, then oil, honey, and so on. In the end, they drew mercury. 

They will be able to pull these liquids straight into the urethra without the need of the silver conduit in the future. This Kriya is extremely beneficial for maintaining complete Brahmacharya. 

The catheter can only be inserted into the urethra for one inch on the first day, two inches on the second day, three inches on the third day, and so on.

You'll need to practice before you can send 12 inches of the catheter inside. The path opens up and becomes smooth and winding. Raja Bhartrihari possessed exceptional dexterity in performing this Kriya.

Even a single drop of sperm cannot escape the Yogi who performs this Mudra. And if it has been discharged, he will reclaim it with this Mudra. Death is defeated by the Yogi who gathers and protects his sperm. His body emits a pleasant odor.

This Kriya was perfected by Varanasi's late Trilingaswami. This Mudra is taught by Sri Swami Kuvalayanandaji of Lonavala.

Mayurasana is also known as Vajroli Mudra. Yoni Mudra is another name for Vajroli Mudra. Yoni Mudra, on the other hand, is defined separately.

The aim of Vajroli Mudra is to achieve perfection in Brahmacharya. When aspirants use this Mudra, their minds are unwittingly diverted to sexual centers, and they are unable to achieve success. 

When you read the definition of this Mudra, it will become clear that strict Brahmacharya is needed. There is no need for a woman or other physical contact in order to practice this. 

Since the Grihasthas have wives and believe that Vajroli Mudra is a birth-control system, they have a strong desire to practice this Mudra. They haven't grasped the strategy or the intent of this crucial Kriya.

Mula Bandha, Maha Bandha, Maha Mudra, Asanas, Pranayamas, and other yoga practices can automatically help you learn and succeed at Vajroli. This must be carried out under the supervision of a Guru.

Slowly draw in a breath. Keep your breath.

When raising the buttocks, the Asana must be intact and strong. 

This Kriya eliminates death and decay. The Yogi gains mental control and defeats death. Maha Mudra, Maha Bandha, and Maha Vedha have very little in common. They resemble three phases of a single workout.

The right leg should be stretched out. Two hands can be used to grasp the toe. Inhale deeply and hold your breath. 

Firmly press the head against the stomach (Jalandhara Bandha).

The length of life is lengthened. It bestows wonderful Siddhis on those who practice it. The Yogi typically performs Maha Mudra, Maha Bandha, and Maha Vedha. 

This is an excellent mix. Then only the greatest rewards are obtained. This can be done six times a day, in the morning and evening.

Alternatively, return to the same location and inhale. 

You should take your hands to the back instead of holding them on your heels. 

In the right hand, grasp the left wrist. This posture heals all types of abdominal problems.

“Nothing in the universe compares to Mudras for achieving success.”


Mudras and Bandhas are used to treat dyspepsia, constipation, piles, cough, asthma, spleen enlargement, venereal disorders, leprosy, and other incurable diseases. They are the most important exercises for preserving Brahmacharya, without which no progress on the spiritual direction can be achieved.

MULA BANDHA



With your left heel, press down on the Yoni. Keep the right heel squeezed against the space just above the generation organ. Draw the Apana Vayu upwards by contracting the anus. 

Mula Bandha is the name for this. The Apana Vayu, which is responsible for excreta ejection, has a natural propensity to shift downwards. 

The Apana Vayu is forced upwards by the practice of Mula Bandha, which involves contracting the anus and forcibly pulling it upwards. 

The Prana Vayu is joined to the Apana Vayu, and the Prana-Apana Vayu is directed into the Sushumna Nadi. 

Then the Yogi \sattains perfection of Yoga. The Kundalini has been reawakened. The Yogi consumes the Immortal Nectar. In Sahasrara Chakra, he loves Siva-pada. 

He receives all of the holy Vibhutis as well as Aishvarya. Anahata sounds (mystical inner sounds) are heard clearly when the Apana is united with Prana. When Prana, Apana, Nada, and Bindu come together, the Yogi achieves Yoga perfection. This is the highest point that can't be achieved on the first try. This can be done over and over again for a long time.


The use of Bandhas and Mudras aids in the attainment of Siddhi in the practice of Pranayama. Mula Bandha helps to maintain perfect Brahmacharya, provides Dhatu-Pushti (nerve vigour), relieves constipation, and boosts Jatharagni. Mula Bandha should be used in conjunction with focus, meditation, Pranayama, and all other Yogic Kriyas.
