By joining the fingers and thumbs of both hands different shapes are conceived
and different parts of the body are touched, this constitutes different
Mudras. Out of many Mudras, a few are being given below :-
1. Yoga Mudras - for activating the 84 yoga points.
2. Gyan Mudras.
3. Mudras for increasing health.
4. Mudras for salutation.
5. Mudras for invitation etc.
Here only four types of Mudras are being described :-
1. Mudra : Close the fingers and make it a fist, the thumbs should be
upwards and keep them on the thighs and sit in a position.
2. Mudra : Keep the fingers straight and the thumbs also and bring in
all the five tips together and keep them on the tihgt separately.
3. Mudra : Make a counch like figure and keep the hole straight from above
downwards and put in on chest.
4. Mudra : Flex the 2nd, 3rd, 4th fingers of one hand and press them with
the thumb keeping the index finger straight. Keep the 2nd, 3rd and 4th
fingers of the other hand straight and flex the index finger and unite
it with the thumb. Keep the hands on their respective knees with the palms
facing upwards. This is the Gyana Mudra.
Mudra No. 1, 2 and 3 are for the prana to enter the Nadis, which bestows
knowledge. The Mudras cause an increase in the circulation of blood towards
BRAHMANDA. This results in greater availability of atoms of Tatwas in
blood for the creation of Prana. The mudras also infiuence various nerve
centres and the flow of prana is always present from below upwards towards
Since these are not very important as compared to Tankore therefore it
is being discussed in brief. If the Sadhaka practices the above mentioned
Mudras in his daily practice the light intensity increases easily.

There are many paths of Yoga, a few are being described below :-
1. Yoga Practices.
2. Kundalini Yoga Practices.
3. Nada Yoga Practice.
4. Devotional Yoga Practices.
5. Hatha Yoga Practices.
6. Tantric Yoga Practices, Mantra and Yantra Sadhana.
All the practice need the Master, but even then till Master is achieved
the various practices can be carried out. The sadhaka will of course not
only well utilize his time during practices but shall make himself fit
to be a disciple. Mantra practices are also done for the attainment of
If somebody wants to have some spiritual experience he should practice
any of the described disciplines with faith. If by doing a practice one
gets even a little experience, he should continue the practice with full
faith, devotion according to the prescribed procedure. The success of
each practice augments the desire for Yoga. The sadhaka should in the
meantime try to search for the Master and if fails, one should establish
a mental Master.
Those Sadhakas who have the guidance of the Master, they are advised to
accept the orders of the Master as Supreme and do those practices which
the Master ordains.
The influence of the practices on the Body :
On closing the eyes an ordinary individual sees darkness all around. This
darkness is appreciated by internal eyes. In the beginning the Manas is
unstable because of thoughts, doubts, reasons and illogical argument,
which keep on haunting the Manas. The success in one or many practices
bring faith in the Manas of the Sadhaka. The darkness gradually lessens
and is replaced by atoms of light, point, a line, clouds, clusters of
stars, and different colours. The colours may be red yellow, green, rosy,
violet, blue, orange and can be visualized either separately or in a mixed
form. These colours are some times visible in the form of lines, points
or circles or in each other or are, sometimes seen clearly. These may
appear like coloured lines flowing from below upwards. Gradually after
the visualization of these colours they appear to be of high, medium intensity
or of darker ones. Thus seven colours because of difference of intensity
become 21 which lend capacity to the sadhaka for activation of complete
light. The colours of five 'tatvas' are visible at the respective places.
Hence one should not get confused by ordinary colours. The colours of
a tatva can be activated by the process of Tankore. The appearance of
the colour is an indicator of tatvic activity. Once the tatva is activated
it is subjected to Tankore by Prana. The Prana is made to flow upwards.
Therefore the earth tatva should be activated first :
The practice of the Prana assumes special importance in increasing inner
light. The success of every practice in fact depends on the energy of
the Prana. Therefore the Pranayam practices must be practiced efficiently.
The Pranayam is of varlous types. The internal Kumbhaka and the external
Kumbhaka are practiced for Yoga. The former increases the strength while
the latter activates the seed alphabets. It is essential to have the complete
knowledge of Apana. Udana and prana for activating the prana atoms from
Prana are flowing both in the gross and subtle body. Everything is active
and alive, because of prana ; it is made up of very fine praticles of
light. These are generated by tankore and collision. By collision, heat
and sound are also produced along with light . the sound is produced according
to the places. Thus there are fifty seed alphabets at different places
of the body. In fact the 50 seed alphabets are contained in the five tatwas.
These generate the seed alphabets. From the Nada practices different sounds
are gradually differentiated with indulgence in-to different sound and
should be heard individually. This gives rise to the knowledge of the
places of its origin, e.g. if from the sound of Anhad the sound of Ang
be differentiated and analysed it reaches the neck root or vishuddhi chakra
immediately. It is of course difficult to hear the sound of the different
seed alphabets in the Anhad sound. It will be easier if the external ears
first hear the sound of the seed alphabets and get used to it. Similarly
one should get used to hearing the sounds of the seed alphabets individually
in the Arti aound. The mixed sound is made up of the Nadas of the seed
alphabets, the sound of the seed alphabets originates from the rays of
the sun, and from the collision of particles of light and electricity
in the body. The particles which generate electricity by Tankore catch
the sounds of these seed alphabets from the rays of the sun. These are
first audible and later on visible. Later on these sounds get converted
into the Ishta Mantra and become visually appreciable. One should repeatedly
request the Master for its detailed understanding. For the realisation
of Yoga, the practice of Nada is very easy and absorbing for the Manas
runs after the object of its desire. Once the divine Nada is heard the
Manas wants to hear it again and again. It is a proof also for the Anahada
Nada. Hear this Nada daily and the Manas will become stable in it and
the stability goes on increasing gradually every day. When one experience
that the time has come to a standstill during the practice of Nada hearing,
one has acquired the process of samadhi automatically, try to follow it
in toto. The stability of the mind gives birth to vibration in the Manas-chakra.
These vibrations result in the activation of the subtle body. The other
practices are in fact included for the activation of the subtle body which
results in quick attainment of the desired results.
For maintaining strength in the body good nutritious food and for increasing
the Satvic particles, Satvic food and drinking of nectar is essential.
The nectar fluid is just like water which gets converted into light in
Antah-karana. The Nectar drinking gives greater benefit to the subtle
body. It is done by touching the tip of the Uvula and the pharyngeal wall.
The meeting of the two tips results in the flow of Nectar. It has no taste.
Along with this the sadhaka should also try to learn three more practices
from the Master :-
i) How to attract the electricity of the clouds, for this very electricity
is present in the Brahamanda of the pinda i. e. physical body ?
ii) How to attract the rays of the sun towards Antah Karana responsible
for the creation of different seasons ?
iii) Practice of Yoga to be performed 45 minutes before sun rise for the
protection from the evil influences of the evil planets. It means that
in Antah-Karan, group of clouds are visible which produce heat in the
body from the sun by the flow of prana through the right nostril. The
collision in clouds by heat produces electricity.
In order to unite the inner sun with the outer sun try to visualize the
sun repeatedly. It should not be done in the afternoon. For the collision
of sun's rays, in the Antaha Karana, Pranayam and pure feeling are helpful.
The particles of pure prana move about in the atmosphere at dawn. The
sanskaras of the previous life make the practicles impure and produce
evil effects. This is called the evil effects of the planets therefore
it is advised to make a store house of these pure Pranas early in the
A huge store of these particles of pranas increases the intensity of the
light of Antaha Karana. The evil thoughts producing impurities in the
Manas are automatically depleted. This results in the experience of peace.
In this light Nadis become visible and prana start flowing through them.
It is impossible to have the knowledge of Nadis, until the white light
is obtained. Among the Nadis one should try to attain maximum knowledge-about
Sushumna, Ida and pingla for these take the substance of prana flow after
collecting it from all parts of the body, towards Brahmanda. Sushumna
Nadi should be realized in an orderly fashion. The knowledge of the BRAHMANDA
Nadi is obtained only after having attained the knowledge of the above
mentioned nadis by the grace of the Master, otherwise it is not possible.
After the regular practices laid down in various disciplines and by analysis
of the experience so obtained one definitely concludes that activation
of the Nadis, Yoga points, generation of the atom of Prana, increase in
the light, stability of the Manas by pranayam etc. are all based on the
energy of prana. The energy of prana is likened to the strength of the
elephant. By establishing control on the elephant i. e. pranas in Mooladhara
one attains entry in Sushumna and by control in Vishuddhi chakra one obtains
Nectar drinking, Swara grace of lord Shiva and control over Manas Chakra
etc. are achieved.
By the trumpeting of the elephant the sounds of the 16 vowels are activated
in Vishuddi chakra. By these sounds one can proceed towards the centre
of the ten sense organs. Here the sounds of the alphabets and the sense
organs meet. Meditation on this spot increases the peace experience. This
is the peace of Yoga.
Even in this stage of peace the Sadhaka has a normal behaviour, some impure
thoughts keep on coming in small quantum but the pure intellect quietens
them gradually, automatically the success is quickened.
If somehow impure thoughts influence the Sadhaka then before practice,
one should command them to leave the place for you have to indulge in
good realization. Your own faith and the desire to realise God will help
The peace experienced during practices is the experience of BRAHMA in
a very small quantum. Gradually with a few months practice the Sadhaka
experiences the self realization. This sprouting tendril of self-realization
gradually starts assuming a larger form because of daily practice and
by the grace of the Master is converted into mature BRAHMA KNOWLEDGE.
All the practices described here have been learnt from the Master in the
pure form. Each practice has its effects. For God realization many practices
are to be performed for each practice has its own limits. ( By success
in one practice God cannot be realized. It is essential to keep on mentally
analyzing the practice along with their practices ) .
