under taken when the Chitta is stable are called Samadhi practices.
Classification of Samadhi
5) Poorna Samadhi
Tandra : It is a yogic sleep state in which Manas, Prana, Heart etc. keep
Moorchcha : Here the Manas and Prana become quiet.
Ardha-Samadhi : Prana, Sushumna, Sun etc. perform activities along with
Tatwas. This is for a small span of time.
Samadhi : Antah-Prana is not stand-still. The phenomena of inhalation
and exhalation may come to a halt.
Poorna ( Complete ) Samadhi : The breathing is normal, the Chitta is stable.
The vision of AUM is persistent and the japa of AUM is continuous, Prana
flow is uniform and all the modifications of Mind and attributes are in
for Samadhi :
The following are to be observed for Samadhi :-
1) Practices should be performed before sun rise.
2) The atmosphere should be pure.
3) Always face North during practices.
4) Obeisance should be paid to the Masters before the start of practice.
5) Complete knowledge of prana is essential and reverence paid to it repeatedly
i. e. Prana lead to the perfection of Samadhi.
6) AUM should be meditated, visualized and japa of AUM carried out in
7) Complete knowledge of the subtle body.
helpful for Samadhi :
Food consumed daily gives rise to flatulence which is obstructive for
Samadhi, hence before practising Samadhi the quantily of food consumed
should be as less as possible. For non-depletion of energy the aspirant
should use the following medicines :-
1) Ripe figs as much as one can eat, even one fig is very useful.
2) Seeds of Shyama Tulsi at least one Tola should be chewed and gulped
3) Red or white Onga - Make a drink of it without sweetening it.
4) Make a Milk pudding of seeds of Poppy ( Poshta ) and eat it.
The figs and seeds of Shyam Tulsi are extremely beneficial.
The three states of Samadhi are :-
1) Visualization of the flame of Atma.
2) Visualization of the centre of the flame of Brahma.
3) Evolution of complete light from the upper part of the flame and to
develop light on the nose and to merge it into the flame.
Visualization of the flame of Soul or "Brahma"
It is visible just as one enters the realms of Antah Karana. The Sadhaka
should perform the following for the merger of the flame of the soul and
the external light :-
i) Sit in the easy posture and perform the four practices for Antahkarana
and activate the Brahma flame.
ii) Concentrate on the tip of the external flame and visualize it clearly.
iii) After seeing the external flame, close the eyes and merge the two
iv) The merger of the two flames, clarifies the flame of Brahma still
more. Specifically recognize the already described spots in the lower
part of the flame.
v) Merge all the sense organs.
vi) Stabilize Manas, Intellect and Chita.
OF THE CENTRAL PART OF THE FLAME
After the above practice the lower part becomes completely developed and
the middle part becomes wider and more radiant. Perform the four practices
of Antah Karana, this gives complete knowledge of Tankore and if nectar
drinking process is being correctly done, a drop of nectar as soon as
it drops, the light of the flame will become wider. This is termed as
offerings ( Ahuti ) by nectar.
OF THE DEVELOPED FORM"
The radiance of the light appears spreading in Brahamanda. Sun, Moon,
groups of stars, different chakras, Nadis, Psychic Centres, seed alphabets
and Divine powers start manifesting in this light. In order to maintain
this universal aspect of divine light one has to perform, nectar producing
practices, light increasing practices and energy generating practices
For the perfection of the flame of soul or Brahma it takes about 1 to
3 days. For the maintenance of brilliance in the flame, meditate on its
middle portion. The perfection of Jyoti or flame bestows the Sadhaka the
knowledge of the following :-
1) Storage control and direction of Prana.
2) Activation of the flame by Prana.
3) To effect unison of Manas, Intellect and Chita.
4) To have vision of AUM in the flame.
5) To have vision of Kundalini.
6) To unite all the flames of the Brahmanda into one.
7) To have vision of seed alphabets and Divinities.
8) To activate light flames at different places.
9) To activate sound of the seeds.
10) To merge the subtle body into the flame.
11) To offer the Ahuti or offerings of Prana.
12) To unite the Atma Tatwa with Brahma Tatwa.
13) To realize the manifest and the unmanifest.
If the aspirant has visualized the flame of Brahma completely he will
automatically get the knowledge of above.
The perfection of Tankore practice causes the manifestation of the above.
The Samadhi practices should be performed as under :-
Sit in an easy posture and relax and breathe in and out with force through
the mouth at least 20-21 times. The breath should not be held. Concentrate
in the centre of the eye brows. Apply pressure on the navel and expand
the abdomen fully and then contract with full force. The repetition of
this process 3 to 7 times results in Tandra. The Sadhaka can fall down
hence no solid object should be kept close. After some time the Sadhaka
comes back to normal. One sees extremes of light and consciousness is
lost and one gets the sensation as if Pranas have been dragged out of
the body. This is called Tandra.
Exhale and inhale with full force and press the abdomen completely and
Tandra starts developing , but the practice must be continued.
After some time when consciousness returns search in the memory as to
what had happened in this period. One shall not be able to recollect any
thing. This is Moorchchha. Keep some one close in attendance while doing
the practice. If Pranas do not return then the attending person should
make some sound in the Right ear. The pranas come back instantaneously.
The experience of Tandra and Moorchchha are pleasant. The subtle body
also becomes fearless. Other practices are also carried out because the
external and internal prana do not merge into each other.
i) Sit in an easy posture and do the four practices and visualize AUM.
ii) Enter the Knot of AUM along with the subtle body.
iii) See the Black spot in the lower portion of the flame of Brahma.
iv) Give tankore with prana and the subtle body on the black spot.
v) With the disappearance of the Black spot universal light appears. The
small dots of light, clusters of stars, Sun-Moon, Many Gods, Rudra, Warriors,
Gods with Ferocious Faces, Gods with Saintly faces, Rishi and Munis doing
Japa with rosaries, flowing water, high mountains, white mountains, flower
gardens, birds, huge serpents, handsome Ganas Ganas riding respectively
producing sounds and Rishis performing Yagnas and Yoga are seen.
vi) Collect pure prana and again give Tankore the above scenes will disappear
and universal light shall now appear. Some times only Sun, Moon and Stars
are visible and appear rising and setting. Their light radiates In all
directions. This light is for the help and guidance of the subtle body.
The subtle body becomes quiet on seeing this light and bows down to God
Almighty again and again. Here only the sound of AUM is heard. The light
of Sun, Moon & Stars is cool.
vii) The subtle body tries to merge in this cool light. The lights of
the the Sun & Moon come close to the subtle body in form of circles
and then recede. The subtle body merges into those activities of light
and keeps on enjoying the bliss. At this stage it assumes the form a very
fine shiny dot. It can be visible either moving about or stationed at
one place. The Brahma Bindu has a fixed place in the flame of Brahma at
the knot of the Agnya Chakra but this spot of the subtle body can be visible
viii) Keep on drinking nectar and increase the store of Prana and enjoy
the bliss of samadhi as long as you want.
ix) By regulating pressure on the eyes maintain the intensity of light.
A) By regulating pressure on the eyes maintain the intensity of light.
B) Recognize the three points of Ida, Pingla and Sushumna in Agnya Chakra.
C) Give Tankore on the end point of Sushumna and merge Ida and Pingla
into it by Tankore. A great flood light appears. The three end points
disappear in this light. Pale, Red and Green colours in patches or in
particles can be seen in this light, give Tankore of Prana in these colours
and search the subtle body in the green colour. The subtle body appears
in absolute peace. It can be directed to any spot and the bliss enjoyed.
If the black dot appears remember that the subtle body has disappeared
hence repeat the practices of Prana.
Bydirecting the subtle body to the Ishta Deva or the Master one enjoys
the bliss of half samadhi, for the subtle body is given directions for
reaching at a particular place by following and searching it with inner
eyes and visualize the subtle body and Ishta. This is devotional sentimental
Half Samadhi :
1) Prana, subtle body and meditation are united together.
2) The store of prana is increased by Kumbhaka i.e. holding the breath
which helps in increasing the light and the intensity of meditation.
3) If the light decreasing, or if the Manas becomes unstable the Prana
practices are further repeated.
4) Once the practices are mastered the Sadhaka has not to interfere with
Prana. Do not make efforts to control it. The Prana of its own accord
becomes normal and minute.
5) When the prana becomes natural and normal the Sadhaka should do the
japa of Soham and should try to combine this Japa with the sound of the
breath. When the inhaling is done there is the sound 'So' and when it
reaches the navel it is 'Ham' and when there is exhalation the sound of
'Mam' is heard. The sound of 'Mam' seed should also be listened to in
Brahmanda. The concentration should be at the tip of the nose or in the
centre of the eye brows. Try to merge the sound of Soham japa and breath
with the automatic sound of soham in Brahmanda.
6) These practices should be carried out every day for at least 8 minutes.
Pay repeated obeisance to the Masters and make all out efforts to keep
your Antah Pranas pure. The purity of prana is responsible for the success
of Samadhi practices.
Mastery over half Samadhi leads to success in Samadhi practices. During
Samadhi the Sadhaka automatically gains the knowledge of the following:-
1) The knowledge of the form of the Master and his visualization.
2) The experience of one-ness of the soul with Brahma Tatwa.
3) By Samkalpa the yogin can attain the knowledge of any thing in the
universe and complete realization of Thousand petal lotus along with seed
4) Realization of the eternity of the self :
Genesis of Samadhi
Many Nadis come and meet at the navel from different parts of the body
gathering prana from different parts. From here the prana travels upwards
via Ida, Pingla and Sushumna to Brahmands. This effects the merger of
the prana of the being with prana of Brahmanda. Thus their complete merger
gives genesis to Samadhi. The navel centre is the point of genesis of
When the prana travels towards Brahmanda from navel the intensity of light
increases. Thus the light on centres 1,2,3 is less as compared to Brahmands.
The main aim of Samadhi is to maintain constant light in the Brahmanda.
The Gateway to Samadhi :
The magnifitient central spot of the hexagon, the opening of Brahma Nadi
is the gateway of Samadhi. The Hexagon is made up of Ida, Pingla and Sushumna,
Air Sphere, water sphere and the sphere of Fire. It is described in details
in the chapter on activation of Nadis.
1) First define the Hexagon by practices already described.
2) After performing the four practices of Antha-karana give the Tankore
on the opening of the Brahma Nadi.
3) Direct the subtle body into the intense light and stabilize the prana.
4) When the prana is stabilized, the subtle body Manas and Chita become
If the light radiations are so intense as to resemble the brilliance of
many Suns then remember that the gateway to Samadhi has been obtained
i.e. the Orifice of the BRAHMA NADI has opened up. Contemplate and visualize
this light for many days.
Yantra for Yoga perfection
The subtle body visualizes the following Yantra in the state of Samadhi.
This yantra is being illuminated by many suns radiating in Brahmanda hence
here the worship of Sun is of Prime importance. Pay obesciance to the
suns repeatedly and visualize their positions. All the suns are reflecting
on the central cardinal Bindu situated in the central triangle. Direct
the pranas to this point and bid them to enter it. The process of Tankore
helps them to enter it. All the seed alphabets, chakras and Dieties become
one here and in this great effulgence some one or the other (either Chakra
or Diety) becomes illuminated and activated. The intensity of light can
be diminished or increased by pressure on the eye lids. It will be realized
that vision is always more elear in light. Thus it is stressed that pressure
must be applied on the lids and regulated from time to time. This process
is also helped by the light of the Antah Sun and Moon, so that the scenes
may be clearly visible.
When the Tankore of Prana is directed to the central cardinal Bindu of
the central Triangle of the yoga yantra then the movement of the Prana
becomes still more subtle and by coming in touch with different chakras,
Suns and Moons it becomes universal. The subtle body experience a sense
of universalism and visualizes every thing under the control of its own
The subtle body visualizes many places and keeps on enjoying them. This
is the bliss of Samadhi. It has the vision of many rivers, ponds, mountains,
gardens, animals and birds. It gets into the practice of moving from one
place to another in a moment. At this time rays from the central point
of the thousand petalled lotus get activated and illuminate the subtle
body and attract it towards themselves.
It catches these rays and follows them and visualizes his Master i.e.
Lord Shiva himself.
The visualization of Shiva and Shakti :-
Shiva and Shakti are visualized in the State of Samadhi. They are the
Masters, The subtle body knowingly and unknowingly keeps on searching
them in Brahmanda. The Master tests his disciple and when he is convinced
that the disciple is really in quest of divine knowledge, then he graces
the disciple and manifests his form, such a disciple who has visualized
his Master in this way becomes a yogi.

for 'Clear Visualization of BRAHMA-RANDHRA'
The Anatomy of the Randhra
The orifice through which the utmost minute Satvic Prana escape out or
the body and merge into Brahma Prana for ever is called Brahma Randhra
or Andha-Randhra. It is covered over by a shining slimy membrane which
is further covered over by a net work of nerves. It can only be realized
and recognized by Divine vision.
The anterior fontanella in an infant represent Brahama Randhra. The powerful
pranas can exert a pull on this membrane and bring it to the knot of Agnya
Chakra. It is impossible to realize it without the Master's grace. Lord
Shiva is himself present in his Rudra form at this place. The deserving
Sadhaka is helped by Raudra who points out the Brahma Randhra by his trident
but if an undeserving person tries to realize it, the Lord Rudra presents
him many gate ways and this confuses him. Thus the whole effort of the
Sadhaka without the grace of the Master has no meaning. The Master is
none else but Lord Shiva himself.
Here three orifices are visible. The real one is realized by the Master's
make a contact with the Randhra -
The following practices are helpful in attaining a contact with the Brahma
1) The knowledge 0f the end points of Ida, Pingla and Sushumns.
2) Brahmanda practices of Udana and Prana.
3) To establish Prana anywhere in the Brahmanda.
4) Complete knowledge of Anahada sound.
5) Complete knowledge of the thousand petalled lotus and activation of
seed sound by tankore.
6) To increase the intensity of light and maintain it always in Brahmanda.
7) The grace of Shiva-Parvati and Ganesh i. e. ( the grace of the Master
Sit in an easy posture and do the following :-
1) Perform the four practices of Antahakarana and close all orifices through
which the air can escape and apply gentle pressure on the eye lids.
2) Direct the subtle body to Brahmanda.
3) Make the subtle body sit on the orifices of Brahma-Nadi and hear the
sound of Aum and do its japa.
4) When the light is fully illuminated then let there be normal breathing
and keep the subtle body steady on the opening of Brahma Nadi.
5) From the end point of Sushumna a Nadi proceeds towards Brahma-Randhra
which some times shows brilliance.
When this Nadi shines a jerk is experienced in the neck region. Catch
hold of this Nadi i. e. direct the subtle body to find out the end point
of this Nadi. This point is BRAHMA-RANDHRA.
clarify the Randhra
The practice of trataka is necessary for its clear visualization. There
can be infinite light on a single point by Trataka. This Trataka on the
end point of Brahma Nadi gives immense light and the above scenes are
visble in that light. This is the kingdom of Shiva and Shakti. The Kundalini
stops here and remains here in company of Shiva and Shakti.
Sit in easy posture and do the following :-
1) perform the four Antah karana practices and collect a huge store of
Pranas in Brahmanda.
2) Clarify the end point of Brahma Nadi.
3) Perform Trataka on the end point of Brahma Nadi by inner eyes ( Antah
Netras ) and Divine eyes.
4) In the light so generated search for the hole in the slimy membrance.
5) Take a forceful inspiration and hold it. Give Tankore by Pranas and
touch the Brahma-Randhra.
6) On touching many colours become visible, and the net work of nerves
covering it becomes clear.
7) By touching with the subtle body it appears very slimy and shining.
It is difficult to stay here for more than a moment.
If the whole picture is vivid it indicates that the grace of Shiva and
Shakti i. e. (Master ) has been received and you have reached Brahma-Randhara.
perforate the Brahma-Randhra
The yogi should practice Trataka more and more so that his vision remains
steady. This practice is essentially of great benefit at the time of death.
The following knowledge is essential:-
1) To contact all the places of the seed alphabets in the thousand petalled
lotus and to activate them and hear them.
2) To activate the twelve petalled lotus situated above the thousand petalled
3) To visualize Brahma Randhra clearly.
4) To activate Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh and do the japa of Vam, Vam, Mam
and then to activate AUM seed alphabets.
5) To recite repeatedly sham, Vam, Ham, seed alphabets and to give Tankore
by Sham seed into the Brahma Randhra repeatedly.
These should be followed by the following practices :-
1) Perform the japa of seed alphabets sham, vam, ham repeatedly after
clarifying them in Brahma Randhra and give tankore on the Randhra.
2) Breathe forcefnlly twentyone time and then slowly seven times and then
again with force 21 times.
3) Trataka should be done on the Bindu of the Lid. The force of breathing
increases the temperature in Brahmanda and the membrane melts. It should
be kept in mind that the membrane cannot be broken. It only gives way
after melting. Some fortunate one only be successful in this process.
4) Only fire remains on the opening of the Randhra. Hence in Yoga Fire
is the last to be worshipped. The sun and moon clarify the Randhra by
their rays and help the Sadhaka in identifying it. Thus by the help of
Rays of Sun and Moon the Sadhaka clarifies the Randhra and offers his
Prana as offerings into the fire. In fact when the Brahma Rundhra gets
perforated the Pranas are automatically offered as offerings and the Yogi
gets liberation. When the membrane melts the randhra is visible as shown
5) At this stage on the spots 1, 2, 3 & 4 the Yogi should worship
the related deities. After this attempt should be made to enter the Brahma-Randhra
and for this do the japa of the following Mantra of Seed alphabets.
Sun : Ham seed or Sooryam Shaswatamidam.
Moon : Sham seed or Chandram Shaswatachandray namah.
Fire : Ram seed or Agni Shaswata Agnaya namah.
All Devas : Am seed or Sarva Deva Devaya Namah.
Aumkar, Pranava, Poorna Brahma Sarva Devaya Namah.
Activation of Brahma-Randhra :
The membrane covering the Brahma Randhra melts away because of the heat
generated by Yogi's Pranas and the gate way to Brahma Randhra opens. Scenes
viewed after the worship of Sun, Moon, Fire and other deities are indicative
of an active Brahma Randhra. These should be understood as follows :
When the sound of Am, Kam, Lam, Ram, Sham, and Ham merge into each other
only the sound of Ham remains and finally the seed alphabet Ham is visible
here. It is just above the place of Lord Shiva and is a clear proof of
the activation of Brahma randhra.
1) Do Pranayam in an easy posture. Perform all the four practices of Antah
Karana and fill up the inside with Prana while reciting AUM.
2) Quickly visualize Am to Ham seed alphabets of the thousand petalled
3) Visualize Lord Shiva in the centre of the thousand petalled lotus and
have the vision of Sham seed alphabet.
4) Ham is situated over Sham and now view it clearly.
5) The vision of Ham seed clarifies Am, Kam, Lang, Ram, Sham and Ham or
one gets the vision of Kam, Lam, Ram, And Vam. The sound close to Shiva
resembling Kalarava means this in fact.
6) This practice should not be done for more then three minutes, and one
must keep in mind the place of Brahma Randhra for the last journey.
The auxillary orifices of Brahma Randhra : Randhra he can use navel as
an alternate channel.
Proofs for the entry of a yogi into Brahma Randhra :-
When a yogi melts away the membrane covering the Brahma Randhra by the
heat of his Prana and enters it, he has different experiences. The important
ones are the following :-
1) Vision of intense light without any beginning and end.
2) Antah eyes or Divine eyes cannot be fixed for long on Brahma Randhra.
3) There is no divine form and neither there is any impure vibrations
of Manas, intellect and Chita.
4) The subtle body does not move or become invisible.
5) Definite knowledge regarding manifest and un-manifest God.
6) Practical realization of the Divine power of God.
Atma Tatwa :
Atma or the Atma Tatwa is the sixth one apart from the five Tatwas. The
subtle body when bears it and rests close to the heart is termed Jeevatma.
It means that when complete light is with limits it is called Jeevatma
and when it has no limits it is called 'ATMA'.
The form of the ATAMA :
It is an endless light without any colour or form and one cannot stay
in it for a long time and its vision provides liberation from thoughts
and the instability of the subtle body. An object whose vision or mere
contact gives the knowledge of unmanifest and manifest, where no question
arises and if at all any question arises then the answer to that question
is also got automatically, such experience are only obtained when 'Atma'
or 'Atam Tawa' is Perceived.
Please Keep in mind that :-
1) The idea of obtaining complete knowledge of Atma, Atma Tatwa or Brahma
Randhra is to realize God.
2) The idea of melting the membrane and breaking it away does not mean
the exit of Pranas out of the physical body. They leave the body at the
3) In complete effulgence there is no distinction between manifest and
unmanifest. Whatever is visible here it is in the unmanifest form and
remains permeating in the endless effulgence.
This complete activated light is in contact with Brahma. It means that
Atma Tatwa itself gets converted into the Brahma Tatwa. The meeting place
of these tatwas is called the sphere of Shiva and Shakti.
The Domain of Shiva and Shakti :
The limitless effulgence which is nothing but absolute peace starts gradually
becoming less and less and gets converted into such a light which cannot
be compared. The nature of this effulgence can only be experienced by
one's own self.
The place where the light of Atma merges into the light of Brahma is called
the Domain of Shiva-Shakti. The manifest Shiva who rules the whole universe
is Lord Shiva and the one who keeps this universe active is Shakti. Thus
creation and control, are respectively known as Shakti and Shiva. They
are realized in one form. Shiva cannot be separated from Sham, Sham, Sham,
Sham and Ham is generated. The japa of this mantra helps in the realization
of Shiva and Shakti.
1) Sit in an easy posture and completely relex.
2) Do not comtemplate any manifest form of God and neither keep any form
in front of the eyes.
3) Perform the four practices of Antah Karana and activate complete light
and clearly demarcate the Randhra.
4) Breathing should be easy.
5) Dig into the great effulgence with meditation and visualize the subtle
body. You will realize that the subtle body is not visible anywhere and
neither there is any sound or colour in that light. Experience this light
of the soul for many days.
6) Do the japa of Shiva Mantra. On attaining Shiva's vision give the Tankore
of Sham seed on each part of Shiva's body including the Trident and Damru.
The rays of light keep on emanating from the head. This is the Ganges
and maximum visualization should be of Ganges. The great Bull 'nandia'
sitting close by must be saluted. If Parwatiji is present in the vision,
do search her lap. The child Ganesh is poised here. The lion stays close
by. This completes the Shiva family. This family is to be meditated upon
as long as one lives. This can also be visible in the form of Sham.
7) After the visualization of Shiva family the yogi can also have its
vision through AUM. Concentrate only on the Moon and Sun Bindu of Ham
seed otherwise the subtle body remains engulfed in the manifest form of
Shiva and does not obtain the knowledge of the unmanifest.
8) The Sun and Moon dots disappear and only light remains. On observation
you will discover that the flow of breath has become very minute. It appears
as if there is no exhalation. This is the state of complete Samadhi, one
can enjoy it as long as one likes.
Shiva is the main deity :
Do practices for yoga or for the control of nature etc. shiva is mainly
worshipped. It can be understood as follows :-
The five tatwas unite for creation. These are joined by Brahma Tatwa and
a being is produced. It is essential that the five should unite in fixed
proportions and that they should not remain activated-otherwise nothing
can be created e. g. the active fire element. Means high leaping flames
and if any other element is mixed into it no creation is possible. The
same is true of the other tatwas.
The work of mixing the tatwas in proportion and their control is effected
by Shiva through Shakti. From time to time and according to the need this
Shakti assume many forms and keeps Lord Shiva pleased. During Yoga when
the Sadhaka first causes his prana to rise, then at least one of the 84
yoga points becomes activated. The Bindus are related to the Antah Karana
and each other hence even the activation of one point, some part of the
Prana, may be infinitismally small, reaches the Brahmanda. The Shiva Ganas
inform Lord Shiva that the Sadhaka is practising. The 84 yogic points
are in fact the 84 Shiva's Ganas.
In the gross body the element Earth is very important. This gives grossness
to the body and the person is engulfed in activity, works etc. This is
controlled by eleven Rudras. This control is effected by the particles
of Prana. The eleven Rudras are busy actively effecting control at the
navel. The eleven Rudras at the navel means that there is the union of
eleven Nadis. It can be picturized as follows :-
If it is analyzed from another angle the conclusion will be Shiva i. e.
Nature. Thus the Master who is present in every particle or his power
is Shiva itself and none else, this is Truth. Shiva is known by many names
e. g. Baba, Bhole, Nath, Aajnma ( never born ), Ajar ( Never old ) and
Amar Briddha Purush ( The eternal old person ).
The sharp flow or flare up of tatwas is controlled by Lord Shiva. Thus
Shiva is extremely powerful and quiet. Thus he cannot be disturbed by
disturbances of any magnitude. He is always in samadhi. For the disciple
he sends his particles through his Ganas. He is responsible for the liberation
of the beings i. e. he protects from impurities. Thus Shiva is most venerable
and is and the Master of Yoga. The protection from impurities is possible
only by Samadhi. Thus the knowledge of complete Samadhi can be obtained
by the grace of Lord Shiva.
Complete Samadhi :
To have complete Samadhi means to have no thoughts and no impurities and
to get established in one's own form, these are also called ' Laya Practice
' and are of two types :-
1) External practices.
2) Internal practices.
External practices :
These are meant to generate complete light outside the body. When the
internal and the external light are merged into another the yogi merges
into his own form. It should be done in the following way :-
1. By a lamp flame :
(i) Keep a burning lamp flame in front and perform Trataka the its flame.
Do not blink and do it as long as possible.
(ii) Breathing should be normal.
(iii) The flame disappears and there is nothing but light every where.
The disapearance of the flame in the light signifies that practice has
been done successfully.
2. By many lamp flames :
(i) Keep seven such flames in front separated by small distance and do
Trataka on any of the flames.
(ii) After some time it will be observed that all the flames have united
and become one and there is maximum light.
(iii) The flow of breath should be easy.
(iv) Activate light on the tip of the nose and fix it with your own vision.
There will be light every where.
3. By Shadow person :
(i) Keep a lighted lamp at your back, your own shadow will be in front,
see the head and neck of the shadow.
(ii) Let the breathing be normal and fix the place of vishuddhi Chakra
in the neck. Do Trataka there.
(iii) Gradually the activated light spreads in the whole shadow. Later
on this also disappears in the light.
4. By meditation on stars :
This is done on a dark night by lying straight in a relaxed posture. Practices
Trataka on a star, after some time there will be light every where, and
other stars disappear in that light.
5. By Meditation on Moon :
Do Trataka by lying down or practice the shadow person in a sitting posture.
Once practised in sitting posture the shadow person can also be practised
in the standing posture.
Internal Practices :
1) Practice Trataka on any inner ( Antah ) point. Do not hold the breath.
There should be no obstruction to breathing. If external Trataka has been
practiced the internal trataka becomes easy and quickly the body disappears
2) By the mixed practices of Pranayama light can be generated in Antah
Karana. Having developed complete light outside and inside the body, do
the following practices complete samadhi.
i) Sit in an easy posture, pay obeisance to the Master and relax.
ii) Activate light on the nose tip and do Trataka on this point.
iii) Drink nectar.
iv) Breathing should be easy. Observe how far is the flow of breath. You
will find it is reaching up to the navel and disappearing there.
v) Breathe through the mouth and do the japa of Sham seed at the Navel.
The Prana ascends from the navel then do the japa of Vam at the root of
the neck and touch the Brahmanda and do the japa of 'HAM' and when it
goes out do the japa of Sham. This will form an order of Sham, Vam, Ham.
vi) Gradually increase the duration of this practice. Ten minutes per
day is benefical.
vii) After full practice is achieved, merge Sham into Aam and Vam into
Um and Ham into Mam. That means do the japa of these pairs. Thus mix Aum
The success of this practice bestows complete Samadhi. Here you will experience
how the body keeps on getting energy and what status the Manas and sense
organs are every thing is quite. One is not conscious of body, and no
experience of any sound, form or Deity is felt. This is the experience
of Unmanifest BRAHMA. It is experienced only in complete Samadhi.
Brahma Tatwa :
1) It is that power of God who is activating all things, Devas, seeds,
alphabets sound etc. and they are merging back into it.
2) The power of the attributes of any Tatwa and the capacity to experience
3) To continue life by prana and to get results by Karma automatically,
free of any bondage eternal.
4) Experience or knowledge gained by practices or by analysis whatever
is left as a conclusion.
5) Action done by various God forms, and their attaining the Unmanifest
6) Not connected to the impurities of body in any way and always in own
7) Creator of the five Tatwas but not engulfed in them.
8) Not related to any of the five elements. The fire cannot burn it, the
water cannot decompose it and the air cannot dry it and the sword cannot
9) Always established in its own form, devoid of desires and sex distinction
is the Brahma Tatwa i.e. God.
