Mooladhara chakra January 20, 2010


“The first centre is called the Mooladhara centre. It has four petals (sub-plexuses), is placed below the triangular bone, and is responsible on the physical level of the manifestation of the pelvic plexus which looks after all our excretion, inclusive of sex activity. When the Kundalini rises, then this centre becomes inactive in the excretion functions but active in the support of the rising of the Kundalini. Though the Kundalini has to rise through six centres, the first centre of Mooladhara protects the purity of chastity of the Kundalini at the time of its awakening.” – Shri Mataji

“The second centre is the centre of Swadhisthan. It has six petals and caters on the physical level to functions of the aortic plexus, and is the one which supplies us with the energy of creativity, of thinking, of being futuristic. It supplies Power to the brain cells by converting fat cells into brain cells.” – Shri Mataji

Purification of Swadhistana chakra May 24, 2008


From couple of months my attention was to find relations between different asanas and chakras.

Couple of days ago I start my meditation with couple of minutes in Padmasana (Lotus Pose) and after I remain in  Siddhasana.

My personal feeling was very quick purification of Swadhistana chakra, specially the right side.

During this exercise, please use your vibratory awareness and discrimination. 

Good luck. 

 

 

“YOGA IS TO STILL THE PATTERNING OF CONSCIOUSNESS” April 15, 2008


I.2  Yogas- citta-vrtti-nirodhah

yogah = process of yoking; union

citta = consciousness

vrtti = patterning, turnings, movements

nirodhah = stilling, cessation, restriction

Yoga is to still the patterning of consciousness.

May be this is the most popular sentence from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. How many of us can really experience this state? Are we looking to achieve this state? Believe me, I had a chance to be there and it is beyond description.

I am not so satisfied from Sanskrit translation as well. Please find below some clarifications from Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.

“’Chit’ is the attention, the ‘Consciousness’.  You are just now conscious and listening to me.  Every minute, you are conscious.  But every moment is becoming dead into the past.  Every moment is coming from the future to the present.  But you are conscious at this moment and are listening to me”.

“I do not know what is the word for ‘Vritti’ in English language.  It is not ‘aptitude’ but a person gets ‘prone’ to, or his Attention is dragged to – I do not know if there is a word in the English language for Vritti. Vritti means a temperament by which you are drawn to.  Whatever is your temperament, it acts like that.

For example, if you see a man walking, say, blindly, he cannot see things.

One person may get angry with that person.

Another may have pity for that person.

Third man may come forward to help him out.

Is the vritti, is the temperament you have developed through your three Gunas.

That is why this Attention becomes identified with you, and when you are identified with this, your vritti, your temperament then you are still in a misidentified area.”

“But for a Sahaja Yogi the most important thing is : ‘you must save your attention’. Is called as Chitta Nirodha. Nirodha : saving of your attention. ” Where is it going, It’s such a precious thing for me. Were is it running” ?

Then how do you save your attention ? Is through concentration. Concentrate. Try to concentrate. Don’t allow your attention to wobble. Gradually you will develop concentration”.

I hope with these clarifications it will be easy for you to comprehend the message of Maharishi Patanjali.
