Sadhaka should be well conversant with the knowledge of the anatomy
of the body so that he knows the points where by tankore the light of
Yoga can be appreciated. The light can be developed anywhere in the
body and its intensity increased and It can be spread all over. This
results in the realization of Yoga. The following are the points for
the development of Yoga light :-
A. In the Physical body : 1. 84 Yoga Points
2. 7 Richas
3. 7 Tyachas
4. 7 Chakras
B. Antah Karan 5. Sun and Moon activation
6. The Rainbow activation
7. Twelve Yogic points in Brahmanda
1) 84 YOGIC POINTS
These points are situated in every joint :
1. Joints of all the fingers, thumbs and toes below the nails. 20
2. Joints of the arms (Shoulder, Elbow and Wrist) and legs
(Hip, Knee and ankle) 12
3. Joints of the Spine 34
4. Centres for the organs of senses 10
5. Points of Sun and Moon 2
6. Ida and Pingla 2
7. Chitrini, Vajra, Brahma Nadi, Sushumna 4
RICHA-Tyacha and Chakras :
& (3) Tyacha and (4) Chakra-their position is as given below :-
7. Thousand petalled lotus
Sun and Moon Points : The sun points is just above the right brow and
the moon is above the left eye-brow. These develop into Chakras. It
is because of this that the right eye is sun and the left eye is moon.
Similarly the two swaras are understood as Sun and Moon.
RAINBOW : In the inner self something like a rainbow as in the sky is
seen. The rays of the sun has seven colours and these mix-up to form
the white colour. For the realization of complete light seven colour
are differentiated and realised and when they are visualized, the rainbow
become clear. The rainbow starts from the resting place of the subtle
body and culminates in the aperture of Divine light. Therefore the activation
of points of both the ends is essntial.
Twelve Yogic Points : 84 Yogic points of the physical body are centered
in the twelve points in Brahmanda. These twelve points are further in
four parts and each of these four parts merges into one point.
This division is affected by pooraka, Kubbhaka and Rechaka of Sun, Moon
and Fire. The above Yoga points are activated for the development of
Divine Light in the following manner :-
1. The arousing of the centres.
2. To make the light move from this centre.
3. To enlighten other places and channels by moving this light.
4. The following rules must be observed for the development of these
I Faith, confidence and intensity of purpose.
II The stomach should be empty and before starting the process, Urine
and feaces must be voided so that the abdominal wall can be compressed
fully. Always take satwic food.
III The practice should be done at dawn.
IV The knowledge of the process of Tankore.
V The knowledge of activating the tatwas.
following practices should be done for arousing the centres :-
1. By Tankore
2. By Breathing practiced
3. By the Japa of seed alphabets
4. By subtle body
5. By Hatha Yoga
1. By Tankore Practice :-
Each Yoga point can be activated by Tankore. Sit facing North and start
Tankore practice, on each Yogic point. The Tankore should be practiced
under the nails. A small vibration is felt and this point must be kept
2. By Pranayama :
Practice-poorka-Inhaling, Kumbhaka holding the breath and rechaka-that
is exhaling gradually. The Japa of Aum should be performed in the ratio
1:2:1, 2:4:1. The eyes should be kept closed and the concentration should
be done in the center of the eyebrows. Try to direct the light to different
places of the body. In weeks time small luminous Yogic points will be
For awakening of Sun and Moon open the mouth and breath in and out forcefully.
Repeat it 11 to 21 times. The body becomes warm. Now hold the breath
very slowly exhale. During kumbhaka press the eyes with fingers and
concentrate in the center of the eyebrows. Sun-Moon and other visions
will be perceived. The intensity of light depends upon the force of
breathing. When the light intensity decreases repeat this practice again
and do it as long as possible. Do not flex the neck.
and the Ganges of Knowledge :
Sit in a clean place facing north and extend the left foot. Bring the
right foot close to the left knee joint but keep the right knee joint
standing, catch hold of the great toe of the left foot with the left
hand. Close the right hand with thumb out. Clench the right fist. Concentrate
on the tip of the nose. The right hand should not touch the right leg.
See the vision and establish it in the center of the eyebrows and again
visualize it with closed eyes and try to merge in it. The breath is
not to be stopped. In a few days practice the sun point becomes visible
and the rays of different colours emanating from it will be visible.
These are of different colours and are respectively Ida, Pingala, Sushumna,
Manas, Intellect, chit and knowledge. The perfection of this practice
is the visibility of these colours.
If one does not get success in the above practice then one should perform
the following to dispel the darkness of ignorance :-
1. Inhale with force through the left nostril and hold the breath in
the triputi then gradually exhale. Repeat at least 20 times. Faint light
can be seen. After the above practice become perfect rainbow or the
Ganges of several colours can be successfully seen.
2. Richa, Tyacha and the awakening of chakras :- By the wilful practice
of the Tankore with prana any center can be awakened. However, it should
be done in an order. This should be from below upward otherwise there
are chances of failure because the flow of prana is from below upwards.
It will be described in detail in the chapter on Kundalini Yoga.
3. By the japa of seed alphabets by applying pressure on the 84 points
of the body the light appears early. It is done with full force by the
japa of seed alphabets it should be done in the following way - On the
toes - Ram Ram - 7 times
On each joint of the legs - Sham Sham - 7 times
On the Rectum and urethra - Ham Ham - 7 times
Under the navel - Lam Lam - 7 times
On the fingers - Yam Yam - 7 times
On the joints of the hand - Sham Sham - 7 times
On the face - Ham Ham - 7 times
On the tip of the tongue rolled backward(Throat) - U U - 7 times
On the ears - Ham Ham - 7 times
On the eyes - Ham Ham - 7times
On the nostrils - Ham Ham -7 times
On the center of the eyebrows - Bam Bam - 7 times
These are 7 seed alphabets which are ram, sam, ham, Yam, Lam, Vam, that
ram, yam, ham, sham and Aum. By the careful japa at all these centres
they can be activated easily. After the perfection of the body by this
practice the knowledge of the subtle body becomes easy.
4. By the subtle body - If the subtle body is active and one is conversant
with the process of controlling it, it can be directed to any place
in the body and light can be produced and complete yogic description
can be obtained. Generally this practice is done for the points in Brahmanda
along with Tankore practice. The subtle body has an important background
regarding the activation of 12 yogic points in Brahmanda. The subtle
body arouses the sound by Tankore and enjoys the divine Nada and practically
visualises the seed alphabets. All out efforts must be made for the
perfection of this practice. It is a complete practice by itself.
5. By Hatha Yoga : The 184 practices of Hatha Yoga are integrated in
21 practices which are responsible for arousing light outside and in
the inner self. First-the light outside is visualized and then inner
light is realised. Now a description of how the external light is awakened
is being given - (1) Arousing of the light point (2) Arousing of light
at the tip of the nose (3) By the light of Sun-Moon-Stars, the arousing
of complete light.
Arousing of the light point
(A) Make a black point on a paper and keep on looking into it with concentration,
the light point is visualized.
(B) Concentrate on one point on a pitcher the light points is aroused.
2. Arousing of light at the tip of the nose
Sit in an easy posture, flex the neck and touch the chest with the chin.
Visualize the tip nose or fix the gaze on one point on the earth. After
some time the point on the earth disappears and gradually the light
spreads like sun light. It is an important practice and one must practice.
3. By the light of Sun-Moon-Stars
(A) During dark night hours gaze moon or any star either sitting or
lying down. Do not blink and keep on gazing for some time. In a few
minutes the light of the star disappears and complete light is aroused.
(B) By constantly gazing at the Sun instantaneous perfection is obtained
but there is a danger of losing sight. This practice is therefore not
6. Sit with an easy posture and breathe in and out slowly and then forcefully.
Close the eyes with the palms and apply pressure. The Sun and Moon are
aroused in the right and left eyes and finally these two get mixed together
and it becomes full light. This is still a limited light which gradually
gets changed into full light. It is like millions of Suns and is blissful
and many graceful figures can be visualized.
Absolute necessities :-
1 - The food must be satwik during the practices of Hatha yoga for by
2 - It should be lonely open place
3 - The place where the practice is done should not be hollow under
4 - Inner light after completely activating the external light close
the eyes at once. The light outside becomes visible inside. When the
intensity decreases repeat the practice and enjoy according to the time.
