is a place in Antah Karan which has the maximum light and where many flame,
divine forms, seed alphabets, or other forms can be visualized. This is
called Brahmanda. It is situated just behind the Agnya chakra. The centre
of Brahmanda is the knot of the Agnya Chakra that is way it is stressed
that the knot must be clarified and meditated upon. There is a point bestows
the knowledge of the Brahmanda. This luminous knot. The realisation of
this points bestows the knowledge of the Brahmanda. This luminous Brahma
point of the stable point of subtle brahma is known by many names. Just
as by concentration on a small point the light spreads similarly when
concentration is done for some moments on this point the light spreads.
This spread of light represents Brahmanda. All the divinities and the
seed letters merge into it and emerge from it. This fact prove that in
one small point many forms can merge. The Brahmanda of the man gets merged
in a point light which is having the dimensions of the tip of the needle.
In addition to this the external Brahmanda and many other Brahmandas are
merged into the Brahmanda of the individual. Therefore many Brahmandas
are being contained in one and the same dot is permeating many Brahmandas.
PLACE OF BHAHMANDA :-
Following practice should be carried out for realization of Brahmanda.
i) Sit with ease and do the four practices of Antah Karan and activate
the Brahma flame. There is a luminous point in the lower part of the Brahma
flame and under this is a dark spot. This dark spot is the gate way to
ii) Sit with ease and perform the four practices of Antah Karan and activate
Ida, pingla and Sushumna. Then visualize the three nadies in the light
of Antah Karan. This is the place of the three spots. Give the Tankore
of prana on this spot. The light which is activated above. It is of the
iii) See carefully the movement of Sushumna Nadi from below upwards. Clarify
chitrani, vajra and Brahma Nadi in separate dots. Brahmanda starts where
the Brahma Nadi ends.
iv) The fontanalle is a very thin place in the head of an infant where
there is no bone and pulsations can be felt there. This the top most part
of the head.
OF BRAHMANDA :
The following practices can be done for activating the Brahmanda :-
(1) BY PRANA :
i) visualize the Brahma flame. Identify a luminous point under which lies
the dark spot. When it is clearly visible then give the tankore of prana
with full force.
ii) This dark spot is in fact of a deep blue colour. It has red, violet
and green colours. These colours become visible by the tankore of the
iii) Repeated tankore for 4½ minutes results in disappearance of
all the colours and white light is generated.
iv) Merge the pranas for a few moments into the white light which is a
minute dot. This is the universal form of the dot.
v) When the light is generated do not hold the breath. The breathing should
be easy and continuous. The scene of completely activated Brahmanda becomes
(2) BY BRAHMA NADI :
a) Throw out Apana and sit with an easy posture or posture of adepts.
Make the prana directly enter Sushuman at the Mooladhra.
b) Watch the flow of prana in Sushumna Nadi. The Prana can be seen ascending
up as if some fluid is flowing in a glass channel. Follow it till its
end. A place will come in Antah Karan when the flow is not visible. This
point is the end place of Brahma Nadi. Always keep it in mind that the
end of BrahmaNadi is situated at the knot of Agnya. Touch it with your
finger and be sure.
c) Do all practices of Antah Karan and give tankore on the end point of
Brahma Nadi. The light of Brahmanda becomes activated.
(3) BY THE SUBTLE BODY :
a) Sit easy and activate the Udana and direct it to the subtle body and
b) Direct the subtle body to Brahma flame and perform the four practices
of Antah Karan.
c) Attract the prana from each part of the body and make them enter into
Antah Karan. Both the great toes will show light vibrations.
d) The light is the proof the activation of Brahmanda. The vibration is
because of the movement of the subtle body.
THE NATURE OF BRAHMANDA :
The light of Antah Karan is all pervading but it is maximaly concentrated
at the centre of Brahma flame. It is known by the names of subtle point,
subtle brahma, Radiant. Brahma point, stable Brahma point etc. when this
light expands then it becomes Brahmanda, or the Universal form. The subtle
body has seen each seed and the divine forms merging into the subtle point
and arising out of it but in Brahmanda these move about in their own spheres.
All the things like richa, tyacha, chakra, kundalini, Divine powers which
are present in the gross and subtle body are visible here. With this universal
vision the subtle body it should be understood as follows :
a) When the prana enters the Brahmanda, the subtle body and the pranas
are one and pranas can be termed as subtle body and vice versa.
b) Sushumna etc. do not exist in Brahmanda. Here there are Gyanvardhana
Prakashdaayinee Nadies mainly which sometimes manifest their form.
c) Each seed alphabet, it situated here in an order.
d) Master Yogins, rishis Munis Hans, Param Hans devotees and divine powers
keep on manifesting there according to the modification of the Manas.
e) The practice of Brahmanda realisation depends upon the divine will.
The power of the Guru has special importance here.
AIM OF BRAHMANDA PRACTICES :
1. To enlarge the subtle knowledge gained by the sadhaka by various practices.
2. To have vision of divine powers.
3. To visualize the seeds.
4. To have the knowledge of Brahma-Randhra.
5. To learn the practices of leaving the body.
THE VISION OF THE UNIVERSE BY THE SUBTLE :
The eyes of the subtle body are divine and minutest things can be seen
withthem. The inner eyes cannot see the most minute points. For example
the Luminous point in the lower part of the Brahma flame appears as the
white dot by the inner eyes, from which the radiating rays of light are
not visible. But by the divine eyes a small point of the size of the tip
of the needle and of light blue radiating colour can be clearly seen in
the luminous dot. Radiating rays of light can also be seen in this dot.
The Universal form is only visible by the divine eyes for very minute
things are hidden in it. For the activation of the divine eyes do the
following practices :-
1. To visualize the Brahma flame repeatedly and offer pranas as an oblation
2. To merge the subtle body into Brahma Flame.
3. To visualize the Brahma point repeatedly and practise to visualize
it always even while moving about or in any state.
When the Divine eyes are seen by the Inner eyes they appear red but are
extremely radiant. When the divine eyes and inner eyes meet then the rays
of light coming out of the divine eyes merge into the inner eyes. When
it happens the subtle body directs its powers of knowledge to the gross
body. Hence attempts should be made for the two eyes to meet with each
other and for this do the following practice :-
a) Sit easy before sunrise and activate the subtle body and the Brahma
b) Repeatedly request the subtle body to manifest completely.
c) The subtle body is visible sucking its thumb, made up of blue colour.
d) See into the eyes of the subtle body with your inner eyes. When the
sadhaka has become confident that he has obtained divine eyes he should
contemplate the following :-
1) Conclusions of the practices carried out so far.
2) Visualization of the manifest Divine Powers arising out of Brahma flame
and merging back into it.
3) Light radiating out in all directions from the subtle Barahma point.
4) The degree of satisfaction of the soul. On contemplating one will realise
i) The physical body and the subtle body though appear as separate entites
but are the parts of the same being, that is, the sadhaka exists into
ii) The prana which is flowing in this world is the same which is flowing
in the gross subtle body, Antaha Karan and Brahmanda.
iii) There is something or the other hidden in each part of the body and
all of them are visible in Antah Karan and Brahmanda at one place.
iv) The energy for activating all the things has been obtained from Prana
e) Sound, seeds, divine forms cannot be realized without the knowledge
of pranas. The same power which exists in the point is manifest according
to its different attributes.
f) Just as the powers permeating the Brahmanda are parts of the divine
powers, similarly the subtle body is also a part of the Brahma. It means
everything which is visible in Brahmanda is the manifest form of Brahma.
The subtle body is a witness of the above conclusions. When the Pranas
of being enter Brahmanda the disturbances disappears. But the desire of
the subtle body to gain more knowledge remains which means that there
is still more to known.
Practices of Brahmands :
These are mainly divided in the following categories :
1) By the subtle body.
2) By Prana.
3) By the subtle body and the Prana.
BY THE SUBTLE BODY
The following should be practiced in Brahmanda
a) To have divine visions and the knowledge of the directions by the subtle
b) To talk with divine powers and Masters through the subtle body.
c) To recognize the Brahma-Randhra.
a) To activate the divine powers who had been inactivated for years and
to appease the appetitc of Rishis and Munis.
b) To activate Prana in the Nadis of Brahmands.
d) To practise disciplines which produce nectar increase light and energy.
3. BY SUBTLE BODY AND PRANA
a) To break open the Brahma Randhra by the subtle body after they have
accepted the pranas or after they have been activated by Pranas.
b) To merge in the power of the Master or Divine powers etc.
These practices should be performed in the following way indicated in
The four practices of Antah Karan :
1) Sit in an easy posture and generate Prana from Udana and prana at the
2) Visualisation of light at Agnya and by contracting the abdomen establish
prana in the centre of the eye brows.
3) Touch the chest with the chin, close the ears and hear Anhada and increase
the light intensity by gradually applying pressure on the eyes.
4) To drink nectar.
These practices result in complete knowledge of the following :-
1) Complete control over Prana.
2) Use of Tankore in different practices.
3) To generate light like fire at any point by Tankore.
4) To activate heart and neck chakras by Tankore and to control them.
5) To throw out pranas through the ears along with impure particles with
the help of Tankore.
6) To activate very minute sounds by Prana.
7) To activate other points by the subtle body and prana after they are
activated by sound.
8) To unify all the activated parts and finally merge with them.
The knowledge of Tankore is most essential and the attainment of Yoga
depends upon it.
After attainment of and with the knowledge of the above eight practices
the light in Brahmanda is activated, the following practices are done.
1. Visualize different lotuses, their petals and chakras.
2. To poise the subtle body and the prana in different chakras after recognizing
3. To clearly visualize the subtle body and to catch the rays of light
and experience their 14 colours.
4. To gain complete control over prana and then to direct them to any
spot in the body.
IN BRAHMANDA IN THE SUBTLE BODY
By now the Sadhaka must have realized after the activation of the subtle
body that the sleeping subtle body lies on the right side of the Agnya
chakra : By the Tankore of prana close to Ham seed the subtle dody gets
activated. From the navel udana is directed and filled in it. It now gathers
energy for movement and even for flying. It gathers so much energy from
different sources that it never sleeps again and always remains active.
The following are the steps for the complete realization of the subtle
1. To reeognize the subtle body (Already discussed)
2. Activation of the subtle body ( " )
3. To make it move about ( " )
4. To gain control of the physical body by the subtle body.
How to make it move about ? It is the active subtle body only which can
be made to move about It is very much like a small child first made to
sit, walk, run freely and learn directions etc. The subtle body after
doing different practices returns back to its position of rest and keeps
on watching the internal activities of the sadhaka. To invoke the activated
subtle body at the gateway of Antah Karan, to visualize the light flame
of Antah Karana and to realize visually the subtle Brahma in the Brahma
flame, the visualization of the creation and merger of the seed alphabets,
the subtle body becomes active. These practices also result in opening
of the divineres of the subtle body and now it can decide independently
after visual impressions. The subtle body is to be watched carefully for
its activity by the inner eyes, for after activation, the subtle body
is to be carried like infant in arms to the desired place and is asked
to perform a particular practice. This is an immature stage. For its maturation
the following practices should be carried out :-
1. Increase the store of udana and bestow it to the subtle body. The udana
particles provide energy to the subtle body for moving, running and even
PRACTICE : The opening of the udana nadi is at the navel in the form of
a small orifice. This straight reaches the subtle body and directs udana
prana through it.
Take an early posture and separate udana from other pranas. Contract and
expand the abdominal wall again at least for 21 times. Breathe through
the open mouth or both the nostrils. Then take a deep breath and expand
the abdominal wall and apply pressure over the navel. Visualize light
at Agnya. A dark spot can be seen at the navel. Direct the prana into
it by Tankore.
Now contract the abdominal wall with a jerk. The pranas enter the subtle
body. Repeat this practice at least for 7 times for few months.
2. After clearly visualizing the place of rest of the subtle body make
your activated prana particles contact it repeatedly. If the subtle body
is active the rosy or red colour will be visible here. A red line can
be perceived going from the right side to the left. There is rosy colour
around it. Direct the subtle body to move along with this red line and
Practice is to be carried in the following manner :-
i) Sit it an easy posture, activate prana by udana and prana and take
it to Agnya Chakra. Now direct the prana towards the Right side of Agnya
and there the subtle body is visualized. At the end of the sun Nadi a
red line arises and proceeds towards Brahmanda. Grasp this line.
ii) Drink nectar, flex the neck forwards apply light pressure on the eyes
and do not be concerned about sleep. Otherwise the subtle body will halt
to hear the Nada and not proceed towards Brahmands.
iii) If the subtle body has reached the Brahmanda, the rosy and red colour
mix up to make it deep red (mahavari), It is because of the mixture of
the nectar. The development of Mahavari colour indicates the arrival of
the subtle body in Brahmanda.
3. Activate the different nadis. The three points of Ida, Sushumna, and
Pingla should be clearly visible in Agnya. Here Vam (Brahma), Vam Brahma
and Brahma and Mam (Mahesh and Shiva) are present. The blue, green and
white colours of these gods become visible. Meditate on the green colour
and give repeated Tankore by Prana. A Particle or a form swimming in the
green colour becomes visible. This is the subtle body, which is swimming
n Brahmanda. The green colour bestows peace.
4. Sit in an easy posture.
i) Breathe though the left nostril, hold it and breathe out through the
right nostril. Repeat it at least 108 times. Meditate in the centre of
the brows. The Sun and Moon appear on the right and left. The light of
the sun twinkles and the sun is visible at the end point of the sun nadi
in the form of a small light spot. The moon is visible in the form of
a crescent or full moon, at the end of Moon Nadi.
ii) View the light of sun and moon for some time and you will realize
that the sun is visible after the activation of Moon, and that the activation
of the sun and moon mutually increases the intensity of the light of the
Antah Karan. Many colours become visible in Antah Karana, after the vision
of the sun which may be 7 or 14 in number.
iii) It is in a form of rainbow or in lines of different colours. Watch
the green colour and start moving from the sun point till the Brahmanda
is reached. It is clear from this practice that the sun is activated after
the moon and the sun reaches Brahmanda along the light. It is therefore
always useful to practise Yoga practices when the moon nadi is active.
Fill in the breath by the Moon Nadi and exhale through the right nostril.
The pranas are made to exit in this order at the time of death. The subtle
body of the Sadhaka along with the light of the sun disappears in the
Brahmands. This is called the northerly direction while opposite to it
is southern direction and bestows rebirth. The sadhaka of Yoga should
adopt the northerly directed path :-
When different colours become visible and one can identify the green colour
and the subtle body in it, do not stop the breathing beeause only on the
incoming of Prana the outer prana can meet the Brahmanda prana and become
one. One should keep in mind the following in the above practice.
1. The breath is held till the subtle body reaches the Brahmanda and after
that no pressure or control is necessary.
2. The subtle body is not allowed to hear the sound of Nada otherwise
it will come and sit in the right ear.
3. The subtle body gets energy from Udana which is green in colour. If
you perceive green colour in Antaha Karan then the Udana particles have
entered Antaha Karan. Udana and Prana meet to form the red or yellow colour
while udana plus prana plus samana unite together to form the blue colour.
When the subtle body leaves its place of rest and enters the Brahmanda
then samana is made to enter which becomes possible in ordinary movement,
of breathing automatically, like this all colours first arise and are
visible separately then the subtle body is established in the green colour
and directed to the Brahmanda. All these colours unite to form a blue
colour which is clear like the sky sun and whatever visible in it, will
be clearly visible. This colour denotes that the sadhaka has reached Brahmanda,
and this is completely activated Brahmanda. Full practice of the above
makes them easy and they can be accomplished easily later. The subtle
body now can easily go and come back from the Brahmanda. After this the
following practices are done.
1. To give tankore in Brahmanda by the subtle body - the subtle body when
enters Brahmanda and its coming in the going out of the Brahmanda become
a simple affair then the subtle body reaches any place which it desires
and keeps on enjoying the bliss. Usually it takes rest close to the place
of Sun and Moon (The empty places outside the eyes can be felt by fingers)
The idea of producing pressure on the eyes by fingers is to move the subtle
body from these places and direct towards Brahamanda. Therefore by pressure
on the eyes the light increases and the subtle body starts movements.
For giving Tankore in the Brahmands practice this :
i) Sit in an easy posture and search for the subtle body. They can be
seen the Inner eyes taking rest some where like a child. Bring him to
the nave. :
ii) Eight fingers above the navel is situated the subtle body which should
be activated, completely. It is possible by activating and establishing
iii) Take the subtle body from the point situated eight fingers above
the navel and quickly enter the Brahmanda. The more speedily you take
it up the more sound will be generated.
iv) Waves are visible in the light of Brahmanda. This is a proof of the
perfection of the Tankore practice.
v) By tankore, sound waves, light in the form of seeds and energy from
the light is generated. By striking with the subtle body sound, light
and energy are perfected. By this practice any of the seed alphabets can
be visualized. Only request is to be made to the subtle body.
vi) The sound waves from the place where tankore is given are generated
and spread all over, which are visible. This is called Ulpha practice
which is described in detail in the chapter for practices generating Nada
and Antaha Chakra.
2. The visualization of seeds by the subtle body :
i) Sit is an easy posture and activate the prana and take them to the
left side of Agnya chakra and wait for some time and touch the Ham seed
on the right side.
ii) During holding the breath sham, sham, sham, sham, sham, sham, sham,
ham, ham, ham, ham, ham, ham, ham, japa should be done and do the four
practices of Antaha Karana.
iii) Touch the Manas chakra with Prana.
iv) Quickly take the subtle body to Brahmanda.
v) Do the japa of Ham, Ksham, Lam, Kam, many thousand time when their
sound is activated it can be heard along with mental Japa.
vi) First the seeds Ham, Sham, Lam, Kam are clearly seen and then the
subtle body entering into them becomes visible.
vii) Ham, Ksham, Lam, Kam, that is blue, yellow white some times red and
sometimes rosy can be seen changing. After this many seeds are seen.
These seed alphabets are clearly visible by internal eyes and the divine
3. THE DIVINE VISION BY THE SUBTLE BODY : The sadhaka should decide as
to which divine power he wants to visualize and then he should practice
here. Because the subtle body cannot be given directional instructions
after it has reached Brahmanda.
Now do the following practices :-
i) Sit easy visualize AUM, and quickly perform the four practices of Antaha
ii) Do the japa of Vam, Vam, Mam and seed alphabets many times from the
time of the visions of AUM, till one reaches Brahmanda. Brahma, Vishnu,
Mahesh the three gods are visualized clearly. By their grace the vision
of other gods is also obtained. The meaning of visualization of Vam, Vam,
Mam seed alphabets, is the grace of these three gods.
iii) Take the subtle body to Brahmanda and make it sit at any place, In
a few moments the divine power becomes visible. Request this divine powers
to give you the vision of its unmanifest nature.
iv) Go to your Ishta Deity daily and do this practice whenever you want.
It can be done even while lying straight. The manas does not have vision
because of impurities, only they are felt.
The signs of complete activation of the subtle body and its Power : Request
your teacher or your co-brothers that he should hide some seed alphabet
in the Brahmanda. If your subtle body can find it out then you can conclude
that the subtle body has become perfect. It is satvik perfection. Hence
it will be utilized only in Yoga practices.
ii) The energy of prana is absolved by the subtle body, and therefore
where ever the prana reaches the subtle body can reach in a moment.
iii) To pass message to any body and to take message and to teach yoga
practices is just like a play.
iv) By absorbing power from the seed alphabets the various forms and attributes
of god can be realised.
v) Once the subtle body is perfected it is not necessary to do practices,
by the physical body. There is complete control of the physical body.
vi) In samadhi, practices are automatically done by the subtle body and
the subtle body passes on all the experience to the physical body.
PRANA PRACTICES IN BRAHMANDA : Prana, Udana and Samana are made to enter
Brahmanda by different practices. Of these the Udana is meant for the
subtle body. The samana is for the gross body and strikes balance between
the pranas of the physical body, subtle body and Brahamanda. By the pranas
many inactive places of Brahamanda are activated and later on all the
pranas are mixed with each other. In this way leaving apana all the pranas
are to made to unite in Brahamanda.
1. ACTIVATION OF ALL THE PLACES IN BRAHMANDA :
i) Sit in an easy posture breathing in and out through the nose or mouth
atleast 21 times so that each organ of the body is full of prana.
ii) Collide the udana and prana at the navel and establish prana in the
iii) Do the four practices of Antaha Karana quickly.
iv) Move the prana into Antaha Karana, in all parts and directions of
the Brahmanda again and again forcefully
v) Repeat the practice many times, at places Devas of Rishis and Munies
can be seen with mouths open. Give then your pure prana. As soon as they
get fresh prana they are satisfied. In turn they bestow their knowledge
vi) Bhu, Bhuva, Swah, or Bhu, Bhuva Swah, Maha Jana Tapa and Satyam japa
of these words must be done many times in Brahmanda. Use AUM as a prefix
three times or seven times. Many Nadies of the Brahmanda are activated
by this sound and they glitter in the light.
vii) The three spheres develop into 7 spheres. Therefore by tankore of
these seven seed alphabets the whole brahmanda trembles and at many places
small or large flames of light of different colours become activated and
this is the proof of the activation of the whole Brahmanda.
2. Practices bestowing bliss and increasing energy and light.
i) Practice which increases light : Practice to sit for a long time in
an easy posture, breath through the left nostril without any movement
with complete relaxation, hold the breath and exhale through the right.
Increase the time for holding the breath more and more and when it can
not be tolerated exhale slowly. Drink nectar and apply pressure on both
the eyes and gradually go on increasing it. Hear the Anahad Nada by the
ears atleast for 11 minutes. This produces intense light in the body.,
whenever necessary repeat the process.
ii) Practice for increasing Energy : Sit in an easy posture and visualize
the point in the knot of Agnya chakra. Take the prana fire form the navel
to the center of the eye brows and fill the throat with the Prana. Now
give offering at the tip of the tongue and do the japa of AUM. Increase
the intensity of light by pressure on the eyes. Hold the breath as long
as possible and whatever fluid is generated in the throat drink it.
iii) Practice producing bliss - sit in an easy posture and close the orifice
of the body by fingers and thumbs. Contract the anal canal and close the
mouth with the teeth pressing each other. Hold the breath and do the japa
of AUM at the navel and take it to Agnya. Listen to the sound in the right
ear. Here many sounds are activated and in the end of the sound of SAM
RAM GAM MAM PAM DHAM NAM are heard enjoy them as much as you want once
the sounds are clearly heard do not hold the breath.
The above mentioned 3 practices must be done daily. First these are practiced
individually and later on these three practices are mixed to gether and
converted into one practice. The already described four practices of the
Anataha Karana and these three practices and up to make 7 practices. When
the seven practices are merged into one practice knowledge of the entire
antaha karana and Brahmanda can be obtained.
subtle body and practices of Prana :
( Mixed Yoga practices ) : These are the practices of Samadhi which will
be described separately.
Shantih Shantih Shantih
Yogi Raj the Master.
The order of the attainment of Yoga is destined according to natural laws.
By not conforming to it the vision to the body object is illusory i. e.
the object does not appear in its true form and at its right place, for
example to imagine the knot of AUM and to enter it without its vision.
The difference between Bhakti and Yoga is of sentiments. Yoga has no sentiments.
Whatever is existing visualize it in the same form and understand and
go ahead. The divine powers guide the sadhaka in the path ahead but obstruct
the path of those who are undeserving. The obstructions in the path are
not produced by any weapon or stick but the intellect of the individual
itself becomes illusory. He cannot recognize the true objects and by spending
his time in false things brings an end to his life. This happens according
to the Karmas of the individual.
By practice different karmas are produced and the generated sanskaras
spread everywhere. The strong sanskars gain energy from their own pranas
and become so strong that they destroy the results of the bad sanskaras
of previous times. Like this a battle goes on between the good and bad
sanskaras developed from the activities of the gross body. When many ill
feelings and doubts arise in the Manas of the sadhaka the antaha karan
provides solace because of the good sanskaras. When the sadhaka in antahkarana
visualizes many things, visions of light, seed alphabets of divine powers
clearly or vaguely then the confused intellect because of bad sanskara
starts differenting between truth and falsehood, automatically. The faith
of the attainment of truth permeates the Manas and the brain of the sadhaka.
In this way the sadhaka starts progressing towards truth and deviates
from false activities.
The light seen by the inner eyes is white but is not completely white
as it has got a shade of light yellow, therefore all the yoga points,
richas tychas, chakras nadies and other things are clearly visible, After
identification of this light all things become clear and they appear as
if seen with the external eyes. The practices of Prana are most essential
for the increase of light. There are thousands of Prana practices of which
a few are useful, e. g. the collision between prans and Udana resulting
in the generation of Prana. Its establishment in the centre of the eyebrows
and tankore by Prana. Any centre can by visualized when the light is clearly
activated, First every object appears in slumber, that is, there is no
flow of prana. All the centres of energy, light and prana which are present
in the body of yogi are also present in an ordinary human body but they
are not activated. The adept yogi has completely activated all the tatwas
and places and has complete control over them while in an ordinary man
it is not so. The sadhaka must have the full knowledge of prana of their
directional movement and control. One should master tankore and then by
practising it with practices sadhaka can attain Yoga. There is no doubt
about it. It is difficult to understand Tankore. By the grace of the Master
and repeated practices tankore can be understood. If one does not understand
he should repeatedly ask the Master and practice it again and correct
his mistake. Tankore helps in the activation of Antaha karana and its
various places otherwise the Sadhaka will keep on doing false practices
and will also imagine that he has attained kaivalya. Kaivaly is not an
imagination but is obtained by divine vision. You will believe this statement
only, when you have visualized the prefect form of Divine Light.
Yoga automatically bestows knowledge. It is first little and later on
universal. The sadhaka gradually does many practices but has not attained
full faith in realization of God and in objects of the Antaha Karana but
should keep on doing practices with full faith in the Masters words. When
he gets success and visualizes different things in Antaha Karana, then
he develops faith. He can now provide confidence to others and can definitely
proclaim that God is present within the Antaha Karana etc. Like this gradually
he progresses from, the state of ignorance to the attainment of knowledge.
The practices are responsible for knowledge of yoga. The practices give
rise to Yoga in turn gives rise to knowledge. This happens because of
the experience of the sadhaka, which results in maturity of thoughts.
Manas, intellect and chita do not affect the sadhaka much now i. e. the
sadhaka is not scared of Manas, whether it would be stable or remain unstable
during practice. The poor Manas also gets tired and becomes quit and cuts
off its relations with the sense organs and starts enjoying itself in
the Antaha Karana. It gets involved in different chakras or beautiful
places and keeps on enjoying there.
The ego resides in the gross and subtle body the being starts experiencing
according to Union affacted. For example in the gross body it is impure,
in subtle body it is devoid of impurities and in conjuction with Parmatama
it becomes complete Brahma. Therefore in conjunction with the subtle body
the sadhaka attains the state of Liberation during live time i. e. jeevan
Mukta. In communion with God i. e. during samadhi, it is of the form of
God and on coming back into the gross body, it is again surrounded by
different impurities i. e. engaged in sleeping, getting up, eating attending
the call of nature performing activities for the maintenance of livelihood
and activities for father, mother, children etc.
He should spend as much time as possible with comfort and ease and should
remain busy in Sadhana and whatever he does he should surrender unto God.
Activities surrendered unto God do not constitute sanskaras and therefore
the sadhaka is not afflicted by bad and good deeds. Like this the order
of sadhana keeps on its continuity. The success of practice, the vision
of deities or the visualization of seeds does not mean that every thing
will be available at home without any effort and that the sadhaka will
not be afflicted by evil or pious deeds. The karma does have its effect.
The existence of the gross and the subtle body, itself means that some
Karmas are still left behind and when no karmas are left then these bodies
cannot exist and the individual becomes God himself. One shall have to
do karmas. It may be in any form therefore one should always perform activities
with the idea of surrender unto God. The karmas which bring unhappiness
and unstability of mind should be avoided. It means one should be a follower
of non violence i. e. do not inflict injury to others. This will be of
immense benefit to the Sadhaka.
The knowledge of the gross body and in the gross body light in the Antaha
body and Anth Karna, their combined knowledge, realisation of their individual
indentities and then to leave the gross body and with the help of the
subtle body to attain the knowledge of Brahmanda etc. are different stages
of development of the Sadhaka. God is permeating every thing. The realisation
of God attained by practices is the manifest form is little knowledge,
In its universal form God is present at every place and in every form
and can be experienced just as one feels the touch of air and the temperature
of heat etc. That the quality or energy attributes in objects are manifestation
of God. The God which was being visualized in its manifest form can now
be experienced in its unmanifest form. For a clearer understanding of
this we will have to take the help of gross and subtle bodies. The prana
will help in this process, for the flow of prana exsists from God unto
the gross body and in nature. This very order will take you upto God.
For this we have to be conversanta with the external air, different pranas
in the body, the prana particles, the subtle prana and the universal prana,
This experience can be obtained by hard practices only. The realisation
of subtle prana and to merge them in universal Prana can be accomplished
by the practices of Samadhi. In fact, the gross and the subtle body are
borne by pranas. In one sentence the whole sadhana can be summarized-understand
and realise Prana. Prana is God and contains the power of Brahma. The
change in form the unmanifest to the manifest is a divine play. The Yogins
are the spectators of the divine game and when they are mature they also
join the game.
