What they had was not just intelligence but intuition. They could see, hear or feel beyond the realm of the five senses. They did not need telescopes, microscope or other scientific equipments to unravel the mysteries of the cosmos. They only relied on the most powerful instrument in the world the human soul which has it in a latent sense, omniscience and omnipotence.

The earth plane was actually designed as a laboratory for the evolution of souls, so the GOD send us His reprsentatives in the form of Siddhas, Yogis and Rishis to show us the way. This great souls are in every part of the world, but particularly in India and especially in Tamil Nadu, the land of the Mystics.

Education, which cannot give peace to the soul or cannot give the knowledge of the Self and the inner satisfaction, is not education. Education, which cannot wipe the tears of others, known or unknown, is not education. Education is understanding the situation - leading the life that can make the life, the Life Divine, where the ultimate goal of the life is the God-Realisation.

During 2012, the Sun, Earth and Karthigai star, will be in alignment resulting in more of the grace light entering the Earth plane. Thereafter, it is predicted that the Karthigai - Lord Murugan energy will be responsible for the transformation of the planet and of the genetic evolution of the human species into Gods and Goddesses status. This energy will allow humans to return to their original blueprint. The most important thing to remember about these new energies is to stay conscious and match our frequency to receieve it through proper worships, rituals, yoga and mystical knowledge according to great siddha masters.

The Siddhas were scientists, particularly in their investigations into chemistry, astronomy, plants, human anatomy and physiology. They applied their extraordinary powers, developed through intensive yogis practices, to research these areas on atomic and universal levels without the use of sophisticated equipment. In the long linege of Siddhas, one does not know when they came into earth's existance. Whether they still exist or are they Ascended masters teaching humanity the various sciences and philosophy, will perhaps, be never known.

In the teachings of the Siddhas the human body is a temple of God. Man is a miniature representation of Paramatma or Supreme Intelligence. The purpose of life is to realize God.To manifest that realization in all planes of existence.

Using special salts as well as herbal formulae the Siddhas developed the unique science of rejuvenation, known as "kaya kalpa", which allowed them to prolong their lives until the long term effects of Kriya Kundalini Pranayama and similar yogic practices could complete the process of transformation, bringing about physical immortality.

Siddhas followed the ancient Guru- disciple apprenticeship method. They revealed their secrets to those students whom they felt could be trusted not to misuse the science. The science of Kaya kalpa was limited to those great sages. who were prepared for the uplifting of humanity. Ayurveda came much later as discipline.

The Siddhas had vast knowledge of human anatomy. Their single-minded concentration was unique. It was was achieved with perfection. Their literature on medicine was extensive. The Siddhas were a close-knit community and preferred to preserve their knowledge. They reduced this knowledge to codes and symbols and their literature was steeped in mysticism. Only a Siddha can decode the writings of a Siddha. A beginner could not gain any appreciable knowledge without the Siddha accepting him as a student.

Siddhas such as Thirumoolar, Agastyar, Boganathar, and many more had realized their capacity for experiencing and manifesting the Divine. This was not only limited to the spiritual plane of existence. The Cosmic Spirit would descend into the more lower and gross planes of consciousness, the intellectual, mental, and physical bodies. This for us is a limiting thought as our yogic parasites are not as intense as the Siddha. With progressive surrender of their being , their ego and their very lives the Divine would indeed transform them. With intense practices of various Kriyas, hatha and bhakti yoga, meditation, mantras and Kriya Kundalini Pranayama they merged with the Cosmic Spirit . This was race against time as the natural breakdown of cells, catabolism, had to be reversed to anabolism to prolong the extent of their age. They had to complete the Divine transformation. With Kriya Kundalini yoga and using specific herbal and mineral salts they were able to prolong their youth for the Ultimate transformation.

The Universe was created out of a Cosmic Thought . No civilization be it the Inca, Atlantis or Egyptian had such a precise knowledge as the Siddhas. They were proficient in the science of longevity or deathless state, alchemy, medicine and physics.

Notable Quotes

Albert Einstein said: We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made.

Mark Twain said: India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grand mother of tradition. Our most valuable and most structive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only.

French scholar Romain Rolland said: If there is one place on the face of the earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India.

Hu Shih, former Ambassador of China to USA said: India conquered and dominated China culturally for 20 centuries without ever having to send a single soldier across her border.

WHY then are we not able to use our own ancient knowledge?
It is a law of nature that every thing in creation must go through cycles of time. The period of light must be followed by a period of darkness, and period of wakefulness must followed by a period of sleep. And the period of happiness must followed by period of sorrow; otherwise, the human mind will not give the due value to happiness. After a period of sorrow, the happiness that comes next will be much more heartening. Hence, according to that law, the higher psyche of Indians is at sleep now. Will it wake up in the near future? Can we see it during our own lifetime? Yes. Some astrologers, both Indian and Western, have predicted that India will awaken to a part of its prestigious glory in about two decades from now.

"The moment I have realized God sitting in the temple of every human body, the moment i stand in reverence before every human being and see God in him - that moment I am free from bondage, everything that binds vanishes and I am free". Swami Vivekananda(1863-1902)

Interpretation of the Gayatri Mantra

Gayatri Mantra
Hmmm Bhur Bhuva Swaha

Tat Savitur Varenyam

Bhargo Devasya Dhimahe

Dhiyo Yona Prachodayath

The literal meaning of the mantra
Rishis selected the words of the Gayathri mantra and arranged them so that they not only convey meaning but also create specific power of righteous wisdom through their utterance. The ideal times for chanting the mantra are three times a day. These times are known as three sandyas-morning, mid-day and evening. The maximum benefit of chanting the mantra is said to be obtained by chanting 3, 11 or 108 times. The syllables of the mantra are said to positively effect all chakras or energy centres in he human body. Gayatri mantra is devoted to God Savitur refers to Sun. Sun here does not imply the sun of our solar system. Rather it implies a Sun of all suns. Sun that it is the source of eternal light that provides life, knowledge and enlightenment. Light that can be illuminate the soul.

Scientific interpretation of the mantra
The earth(bhur), the planets(bhuva), and the galaxies(swaha) are moving at a very great velocity, the sound produced is Hmmm(om),(the name of formless God). That God(tat), who manifest Himself in the form of lights of suns(savithur) is worthy of bowing/respect(varenyam). We all, therefore, should meditate(dhimahe) upon the light(bhargo) of that deity(devasya) and also do chanting of Hmmm(Om). May He(yo) guide in right direction(prachodayat) our(nah) intellect(dhiyo).

So we notice that the important points hinted in the mantra are:-

The God could be realized through the saguna(gross), upasana(method), i.e,

(a) by chanting the name o the supreme as Hmmm(om)

(b) By meditating upon the light emitted by stars(suns)

Why should women not chant Gayatri Mantra?
It is widely believed that some of the Vedic Versus are so powerful in nature. Once a women starts chanting these versus regularly, she likely to lose her female-hood character and get manly tendencies developed in physical appearance. In majority of cases, it might cause hormone disturbances in the body`s physical mechanism and disturb menstrual cycle.
It is a fact that to keep women in their natural glory and beauty, the ancient scholars did not allow them to chant or recite these versus. They knew precisely all the effects and side effects of what they did. However, they were allowed to do so once they cross their menopause stage, then the chances of disturbances in their body mechanism were minimal. Also the Gland functional in their body stops, at certain age - any further physical growth is minimal. Certainly it was not for any discriminations but purely on the aforesaid reasons and points.
"Truth is one, paths are many. Stick to one path, but do not say to others that this is the only one. Recognize all other paths and respect them". Swami Satchidananda(1914-2002), Founder of Intergral Yoga Institute and Satchidananda Ashram

Asthanga Yoga

Introduction to Yoga

Yoga is a complete science of life that originated in India many thousands of years ago. It is the oldest system of personal development in the world, encompassing body, mind and spirit. Anyone can practice yoga. You don’t need special equipment or clothes – just a small amount of space and a strong desire for healthier, more fulfilled life. The yoga postures or asanas exercise every part of the body, stretching and toning the muscles and joints, the spine ant the entire skeletal system. And they work not only on the body`s but the internal organs, glands and nerves as well, keeping all systems in radiant health. By releasing physical and mental tension, they also liberate vast sources of energy.

Yoga in your Life
Many people are first drawn to yoga as a way to keep their bodies fit and supple – good to look at and to live in. Others come seeking help or relief for specific complaint, like tension or backache. Whatever your reason, yoga can be a tool, an instrument for you – giving you both what you came for, and more. Anyone who continues with regular practice becomes aware of a subtle change in their approach to life – for, through persistently toning and relaxing the body and stilling the mind, you begin to glimpse a state of inner peace which is your true nature.

The Physiology of Yoga
Ageing is largely an artificial condition, caused mainly by auto-intoxication or self poisoning. Through keeping the body parts clean and well lubricated, we can significantly reduce the catabolic process of cell deterioration. In recent years, medical research has begun to pay attention to the effects of yoga. Studies have shown, for instance, that relaxation in the Corpse Pose (Shavasana) effectively relieves high blood pressure and that regular practice of asanas and pranayama can help such diverse ailments as arthritis, chronic fatigue, asthma, varicose veins and heart conditions.

The Meaning of Yoga
Yoga literally means `union`. It means union of individual self with the cosmic self i.e. Brahman, as per Hindu scriptures. To be more direct, it means union of man with God. This is the highest goal of mankind, as stated in the holy scriptures, which leads to liberation i.e. Moksha. On attaintment of liberation, one is freed from endless cycles of birth and death, as he has realized the ultimate goal of his life – Godhood. Our scriptures profoundly proclaim, `Thou art that` i.e. you are God. But the truth of this statement has to be discovered by individual himself, before he claims, `I am God`.

The Eight Limbs of Raja Yoga
Compiled by the sage Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras, the Eight Limbs are a progressive series of steps or disciplines which purify the body and mind, ultimately leading the yogi to enlightenment: yamas; niyamas; asanas; pranayama; pratyahara; dharana; and Samadhi. The yamas or restraints are divided into five moral injunctions, aimed at destroying the lower nature: non-violence; truthfulness in word, thought and deed; non-stealing; moderation in all things; and non-possessiveness. The niyamas or observances are also divided into five. Fostering positive qualities, they consist of: purity; contentment; austerity; study of the sacred texts; and constantly living with an awareness of the Divine Presence. Asanas are the postures and pranayama is regulation of breath.
Pratyahara means drawing the senses inward in order to still the mind, in preparation for dharana or concentration. Dharana leads to dhyana or meditation, culminating in Samadhi or superconsciousness.

The Five Principles of Yoga

1. Proper relaxation
– releases tension in the muscles and rests the whole system leaving you as after a good night's sleep.
2. Proper Exercise- is given by the yoga postures or asanas, which work systematically on all parts of the body – stretching and toning the muscles and ligaments, keeping the spine and joints flexible and improving the circulation.
3. Proper Breathing-means breathing fully and rhythmically, making use of all, not just part, of your lungs to increase your intake of oxygen. Yoga breathing exercises or pranayama teach you how to recharge your body and control your mental state by regulating the flow of prana – the life force.
4. A proper Diet-is one that is nourishing and well balanced, based on natural foods. It keeps the body light and supple and the mind calm, giving a high resistance to disease.
5. Positive Thinking and Meditation-help you to remove negative thoughts and still the mind, ultimately transcending all thoughts.

"We do not know the various kinds of saints, how they behave, what they do and eat, etc. We only know that by God`s grace they manifest them selves in this world to liberate the ignorant and bound souls". Shirdi Sai Baba(1838-1915)

"Bring our culture back and educate our children on the great science of Hinduism”

Swara Yoga - Science of Breath

Swara Yoga - Science of Breath

How to get attuned to cosmic rhythms to get Health, Wealth and Happiness in a simple way?

Get up each day at least 45 minutes before the sunrise.
Find out the dominating nostril. Kiss the corresponding hand. With the same hand, touch or rub face, neck, chest, thighs and feets. Then while stepping out of the bed, the foot that corresponds to the operating nostril should be placed onto the ground first. Then one can proceed for the morning activities.

This simple practice called Swara Yoga ( Science of Breath ) helps you align the subtle flow of energy that ensures success in everything that happens for that day. Swara Yoga is an ancient science of nasal breathing that correlates the breath with sun, moon and five elements. The nose can be seen as main switch of cerebral hemispheres. It can stimulate electromagnetic activity on one side of the body and it can switch the hemisphere activity on and off at will.

"Give up everything to Him, resighn yourself to Him and there will no trouble for you. Then you will come to know that everything is done by His will". Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa(1836-1886)
