Sushumna Kriya Yoga Initiation at Shilpakala vedika, Hyderabad


Today it gives me great pleasure to meet all of you here and also all the Sushumna kriya yogis around the country and the world through YouTube. Sushumna kriya yoga to be described in simple terms is the latest "inner" software designed by Pujya Guru Bhoganadha Siddar Maha Rishi and the Great Master Mahavatar Babaji.

In this world we keep doing our daily prayers, pujas and yagnas but we do not realize that within us there is a soul and inside this soul lies immense energy. Using the Sushumna Kriya Yoga technique we can live every second of our lives in pure bliss.

First we must understand one underlying aspect in life, that is, whatever happens small or big, good or bad is only due to our Karma Siddhanta (theory of Karma). Nothing happens without our past Karmas. This is the very base - all of us must realize and understand this very clearly.However, by practicing this technique we can create our own reality (slowly unbinding ourselves from Karma). That is, people who use and practice Sushumna Kriya Yoga from today will be free from all tensions and negative thoughts in their lives.

So, why is this technique so powerful. This technique is so powerful because it is a combination of four steps.

The first and most important step is the Yoga Mudra. The very base of Sushumna Kriya Yoga is the Yoga Mudra.
The second step is the Omkara. The third step is taking deep breaths and the last step is concentrating between the two eye brows.

If these steps are considered distinctly, Mudra meditation is first and by using different Mudras and keeping our eyes closed is called Mudra meditation. By chanting Omkara with our eyes closed for 15 to 20 minutes is called Omkara meditation.Likewise by closing our eyes and using any breathing technique is called breathing meditation and last concentrating between our eyebrows is called third eye meditation.

Hence, in this Sushumna Kriya Yoga technique all the four different techniques are combined as one and hence all of us receive immense energy and progress four times faster in our lives.

How was I initiated, how I had seen great visions during my meditation I have never discussed this with anyone in any of my classes. I would like to discuss my spiritual journey with everyone here and then I would go into the initiation.

In 1982 at Madanapalle, BT college, Guru Swami Chinnamayananda was conducting a 14 days meditation course. I had attended the full 14 days. I did not meditate but I was feeling very happy.and wanted to meditate. Then I purchased the Bhagavat Gita written by Guru Swami Chinnamayanandha. Till 1992 Feb I had not opened the book and also did not feel any time that I should open the book.

In 1992 Feb one evening and every evening around 5.30pm to 7.30pm I would feel a great fragrance around me. I was not able to pin point the fragreance. It wasnt any perfume, roses or jasmine smell. It was very different fragrance, I would ask everyone around me whether anybody could feel the fragrance. During these times of fragrance I would feel very drowsy and my eyes would close automatically. After one month I would eagerly wait for the evening 5.30pm time, for the fragrances and I would not have any work nor go out during this time.

This went on till July. On 12 July my mother left her worldly body.Till the day before I used to feel the fragrance but it stopped from that date. Till that date I was happy conducting pujas, yagnas, going to the Temple, fasting, reciting Lalitha and Vishnu Sarasanamam and if I did not recite this even for one day I used to feel bad. After my mother left her worldly body I went into a depression state for one month. Then one day I felt like reading the Bhagvat Gita After reading the Bhagvat Gita I felt very happy.

Three things or three slokas which touched my heart were,

1. (Sloka from the Baghavad Gita)

You are responsible for your Karmas.

2. (Sloka from the Baghavad Gita)

You have to face your Karma and be born again and again to clear your Karma.

3. (Sloka from the Baghavad Gita)

It is only through the path of meditation can one easily clear their Karmas.

These three points were what I was looking for but whatever I did I did not see or feel God.and I was feeling very upset. Then I got to read an article carried by Ramakrishna Prabha.

In this article Swami Vivekananda asks his guru Ramakrishna Paramahamsa whether he has seen God. Guru Ramakrishna Paramahamsa tells him that he has seen God as clearly as he is seeing him. Swami Vivekananada is very happy and asks his Guru whether he (Vivekananda) can also see God. Guru Ramakrishna Paramahamsa tells Swami Vivekanananda yes I will show you but first
we must go to the river. Then taking him to the river Guru Ramakrishna Paramahamsa asks Swami Vivekananada to take three dips in the river and along with Swami Vivekananada enters the river and after Swami Vivekananada has taken two dips and was taking his third dip Guru Ramakrishna Paramahamsa hold the head of Swami Vivekananada with his two hands and presses hard and with great difficulty Swami Vivekananada comes out of the river.and asks his Guru why he was holding him under water instead of showing him God.

Guru Ramakrishna Paramahamsa asks Swami Vivekananada how he was feeling when he was held under water. Swami Vivekananada tells his Guru that he was very determined to come out of the water at any cost. Guru Ramakrishna Paramahamsa tells Swami Vivekananada that if he was as relentless in his quest to see God and could concentrate hard he would be able to see God for himself.

This touched my heart and then I realised that I was not been able to see or feel God because I was not relentless in my quest and I was not concentrating enough. A week after reading that article I was sleeping and I could see that I was sleeping I was hearing a voice telling me to become an Yogi. After a week I opened the Bhagavat Gita again and there Lord Krishna is telling Arjuna to become a Yogi and that a Yogi is the ultimate human being. Arjuna asks Lord Krishna how one can become a Yogi. It was written that to become a Yogi one has to concentrate between the two eyebrows. Then I realized that I had to concentrate and because of my Gurus and Gods blessing I was able to concentrate for 8 hours every day.I was able to do this because I had the time. That is how I started to concentrate for 8 hours everyday.

Afterwards in 2005 I once again started to feel the same fragrance in the evening. Once or twice I would fear that like my mother somebody near me would leave this world but I was neither worried or depressed anytime. Then I realized it may be  due to my meditation that everyone has to leave this world after completing all the tasks assigned to them automatically and we need not worry too much about it.

That day was Vinyaka Chathurthi. I would usually meditate between 3am to 6am everyday. I can say definitely that day was the start of a new life for me. I have felt many visions earlier but this was a wonderful vision. This vision was as clear as seeing a TV. Till that time I had not seen or heard about Pujya Guru Bhoganadha Siddar. I had read the book an Autobiography of a Yogi but in this book I had read about the Great Master Mahavatar Babaji and I did not know that Pujya Guru Bhoganadha Siddar was the Guru of the great master Mahavatar Babaji.

In this vision I could see very clearly the very place were Pujya Guru Bhoganadha Siddar had intiated the great master Mahavatar Babaji - that is Kutirgammam in Sri Lanka. I was there in my astral body along with Pujya Guru Bhoganadha Siddar and the Great Master Mahavatar Babaji. I could not see my body but I knew that I was there and next to me was this transparent body; I could understand what Puja Guru Bhoganadha Siddar was telling me - "I am giving you the simplified version of Sushumna kriya yoga for the present generation." I could feel the entire process in my body and see each step as explained by Puja Guru through the transparent body.

In this Sushumna kriya yoga the very base and the most important part is Yoga Mudra and through this Yoga Mudra we can speed up our meditation and we can progress faster. In this Yoga Mudra we lock our three fingers and when we breathe air enters through our nostrils normally but in the transparent body I could see cosmic energy entering through every small pores in our skin and with great force and when we lock our fore fingers I could see clearly cosmic energy  entering our nostrils to Ida, Pingala, Sushumna Nadi and from the top
cosmic energy was coming down like a light or a fire and was entering with great force into the Sushumna Nadi and I could feel the entire process in my body and I could see the process very clearly.I could not hear any voices but step by step I could see a circle formed around us with great cosmic energy when we had locked our three fingers and I could see cosmic energy entering through our nostrils into Ida Pingala Nadi and when we locked our fore fingers great cosmic energy entering from the top directly into Sushumna Nadi and all these process I could see step by step. Thereafter I saw a Shri Chakra formed with great energy around Mani Pura Nadi.

This is definitely not our first birth. We have been born many times.In our past lives we would have without our knowledge felt anger, been indifferent,felt fear under many circumstances and all these negative emotions would get imprinted very strongly in our Manipura Nadi chakra Therefore when we sat in Yoga Mudra there was a protective cosmic energy around us, there was Sri chakra inside of us the rising of Sushumna Nadi. All this happened simultaneously and I felt this process was the most wonderful experience.

Next Omkara. When we chant Omkara from our Nabi chakra there is great vibration in our entire nervous system.Next deep breathing. When we breath deeply extra energy is sent to our brain cells and automatically we attain a thoughtless state. Meditation is nothing but attaining a thoughtless mind. Thus with Omkara and deep breathing I could attain a thoughtless state very easily. I could see this entire process crystal clear.

Parama Guru's main purpose was that through this simple technique we should create an awareness and lead the human race into spiritual path because we were not born in this world to suffer. God wanted every one to lead a happy worldly and a spiritual life. No Guru would advice you to leave your worldly duties for meditation.The real meaning is that along with our worldly duties we should take care of our soul. Just as we move fast on our outer journey we must also move faster in our inner journey.Do we not move fast when both our legs are healthy and slow down when we are crippled? Likewise our progress is not complete with our outer journey and is only complete with our inner journey, otherwise our life would remain a half circle without our spiritual journey.So everybody from their early age must use this technique for one hour everyday. We can all feel how wonderful our life would be without any depressions and tensions.

 Now I will start the  initiation for everybody here. First without the blessings of Pujya Guru Bhoganadha Siddar and the great master Mahavatar Babaji none of us would have gathered here. We are all blessed.All these days we were not aware of this technique, now we all have learned about it.

First all of us will meditate for 49 minutes and then we will discuss this technique.

 Everyone should sit comfortably and relaxed, totally relaxed. Sit straight, very straight. Before going into the initiation our feelings should be totally neutral and we should forget who we are including our name and profession. This is the time to inter act with our soul so we should become the manifestation of our soul. Keep you hands in Yoga Mudra.

I will chant Omkara 21 times and all of you should chant the Omkara with me. If aoh is one time uhmm should be two times. We should chant Omkara with feeling and chant Omkara from our navel and by listening to the Omkara chants then only can we feel the wonderful feelings in our body.Then deep breathing.

Without disturbing the next person everyone should take deep breaths from our navel slowly inhaling and exhaling for 14 times. Why should we meditate for 49 minutes, Omkara for 21 times and deep breaths for 14 times. The base is the number 7 because there are 7 chakras in our body and 3 times Omkara and 2 times deep breaths for each chakras.

There are energy spots on earth and when we visit those places our chakras are activated and when we meditate we can receive immense energy that much easier. Like when we feel the sun rays it is not concentrated but use a lens on a paper it will burn.The seven chakras on earth is in Andhra Pradesh and it is the seven hill at Tirupati which millions visit everyday. Next time when you are in Tirupati meditate and see the wonderful experience.

Next 49 minutes nobody should open their eyes because when you open your eyes 80% energy escapes through our eyes. Thoughts will come for beginners, then without disturbing others take deep breaths. You should not go with your thoughts. You should realize that you are here to meditate and you would not allow your thoughts to disturb you and you are here to receive great energy from our Parama Guru. Only then, will you be able to receive the cosmic energy.

With an open mind we will meditate for 49 minutes by being one with our soul till I ask you to open your eyes come out of your meditative state and press your finger tips to your eyes because our finger tips carry lot of energy which our eyes can receive easily.I hope every one has understood the procedure.

Sit relaxed and straight. Keep your hands in Yoga Mudra,chant Omkara for 21 times with me, take deep breaths slowly for 14 times with feeling that we are inhaling good, positive qualities and exhaling bad, negative qualities. Then keep your concentration between your eyebrows just as Arjuna for whom the eye of the bird was the only thing he could see we should also maintain our concentration between our eyebrows.

When we get unwanted thoughts we should without disturbing others take deep breaths.Now we all will close our eyes, do not touch anybody and chant Omkara with me..

Here there may be many people who may have not been able to understand me or the procedure, so the procedure would be explained both in english and hindi. Then I will continue the initiation.

  OHM- OHM- OHM. Then take deep breaths for 14 times with feeling and then concentrate between your eyebrows happily.

Now come slowly from your meditative state. Now we will clap for 1 minute for coming out of our meditative state. Everybody have meditated very well and we all have received great energy.To realize the true power of Sushumna Kriya Yoga meditation start meditating from today for 49 minutes every day and when you do this you will definitely realize its immense power.

Some people may have doubts as to which time is suitable for meditation.Normally early morning 3 am to 6 am is very suitable for our body to meditate.For people who may not be able to meditate at that time they may meditate in the evening between 5.30 pm to 7.30 pm and for people who may not be able to meditate at both these times they may choose their suitable time to meditate, but if you miss a single day you may have to add ten more days. Just like how we charge our cell-phones everyday we should also charge our life enhancing energy through Sushumna Kriya Yoga meditation. Along with our daily meditation we should also introspect ourselves for 5 minutes before sleeping. That is all the unnecessary deeds,talk and thoughts we could have avoided during the day.We are aware of only the day to day pollution which is only 20% but in reality world is polluted 80% by our thoughts.When we release a thought it goes in a
circle around the world and would ultimately come back to us. This is called the Universal law.

We have talked about how we can create our own reality. Just as the thoughts we generate our lives will be defined. So the first point every Sushumna Kriya Yogis should be aware and practice is their thought process and to have at all times only positive thoughts and the second point is every Sushumna kriya yogis should never have negative thoughts, such as, whether they can sit and meditate for 49 minutes every day, whether they will have the time, whether they can receive the cosmic energy from the masters, whether they can benefit from this meditation.No one should have this negative thoughts. When I could do it, when our great master Babaji could do it, we all can do it. Every one should start their meditation positively.

Last year's meditators want to share his and her experience with you and then we will discuss further.

We would have studied in history about Nalanda Takshasila Vidyalaya. In this Vidyalaya, both physical science and spiritual science was imparted. Even in those days  when there were not many modes of transport many people from all over world wanted to come down and many great people have come down and learned these great spiritual sciences.

In 1992 when I was reading the 'Autobiography of a Yogi' I was searching whether there was any mention of Sushumna Kriya Yoga meditation. Today there is a card mentioning how this can be practiced but there were none in those days. In this book which is full of energy, I could see every page as a vision very clearly. It was such an energetic book. Then I started my quest for Sushumna Kriya Yoga in 1992 and I was initiated only in 2005. Today every one of you is so lucky to receive it in your own city.

Now when we start something we must take a very strong resolution, like I will take up this meditation and a commitment to complete it without fail. The foremost benefit when we take in the cosmic energy slowly this energy will penetrate every nook and corner of our skin and reach all parts of our body we will feel very healthy.Then all the impressions created by our past karmas which cannot be cleared by any technique, medicines, doctors or by any methods are cleared through this meditation.Since we keep adding all our karmas from our previous births all these added karmas are cleared by this meditation.Thus when our karmas are cleared we feel a sense of eternal bliss.The pleasure we feel in this world is only peripheral but the inner pleasure we feel after meditating is the real eternal pleasure which can never be described by mere words.I want every one to feel this eternal bliss and pray that next year on Mahavatar Babaji's birthday we will have Sushumna kriya yoga meditation initiation at this very venue and I hope to hear from every one here that you have also felt this eternal bliss.

Sri Sri Sri Bhogar Siddhar
Pujyasri Athmanandamayi Ammagaru
The Heavenly Creator of Sushumna Kriyayoga

Sri Sri Sri Boghanadha Siddar is one among the eighteen sacred Siddars. The books of the ancient ascetics show that the life of Sri Sri Sri Bhoganatha Siddar spanned for more than twelve thousand years, starting from even before the beginning of Kaliyuga. He obtained upadheysa on all forms of Meditational practices from the revered Siddar Sri Sri Sri Kalinganadha Siddar. As part of his spiritual education, he was an expert practitioner of the Kayakalpa Sikitsha (for enhancing one’s life span). With the aim of attaining Lord Subramania's Holy grace, Sri Sri Sri Bhoganatha Siddar meditated on the hills of the Sathuragiri and Sivagiri. At the age of 14, Sri Sri Sri Boghanadha Siddar was shown the “Saakshatkara” of Lord Subramania at Cuttralam. He later shifted his practice to Kandi Katirgamam in Sri Lanka, before moving onto the Palani Hills in Tamil Nadu, where he practiced Yoga and Meditation for many years. Sri Sri Sri Boghanadha Siddar created and installed the “Navapashana” idol of Lord Subramania at Palani. At Katirgamam, Sri Sri Sri Boghanadha Siddar initiated Sri Sri Sri Mahavatar Babaji into the practice of Kriya Yoga Sadhana. Before the start of Kali Yuga, Sri Sri Sri Boghanadha Siddar, with the aim of uplifting the common man from the darkness of the shroud of ignorance and the cloak of Maya that confounds his earthly existence, initiated the confluence of ideas through discussions with numerous spiritual masters. The result of such a massive Divine Exercise manifests in the form of Sushumna Nadi meditation that shall awaken us to our Divine Self and help us attain the state of utmost bliss – being One with God.

Why Should One Meditate?
This human incarnation that we have embarked on is precious and invaluable. It is by virtue of the positive Karma that we have accumulated over numerous incarnations, that we are born human. However, driven by our sensory desires, we succumb to Maya and enter the seemingly unending cycle of birth and death. During these cycles of life, there are numerous people in this world who are suffering in various forms – physical, financial and psychological. They predominantly believe that these sufferings are given to them by God. However, these are not God-given. These are of our own making – through the negative Karma that we accumulated over our past lives. So says the Sanskrit verse,

“Purva janma kritham paapam,
Vyadhi roopaena peedyathae”

Meaning, “It is the negative Karma that we accumulated over our past incarnations, That is making us suffer in the forms of various diseases” The cornerstone of nature is the Karma Sidhantha. According to the Karma Sidhantha, the incentive or sufferance that befalls every human is in essence driven by one’s own thoughts and deeds. Every entity in this Universe culminates its journey at the place of its origin. Hence, we shall have to be very careful about our thoughts and deeds. Whatever the manifestation (love or hatred, good or bad) that originates in our Self, its effect upon the passage of time will definitely get back to us. So, our thoughts, words and deeds should be of utmost purity and always beneficial to those around us. Now arises the question – what should one do to attain such a state? All that one has to do is to use God-given wisdom and listen to one’s Inner Conscience. This is essential to rid of ourselves of vicious grip of Karma. In the Bhagawad Gita, Lord Krishna reveals a powerful insight,

“Jnanagni dhagdha karmanaam”

It means that our entire Karma will get decimated in the Inner Fire of Supreme Knowledge that one awakens to. One can experience this Supreme Knowledge through Meditation and thus attain the Ultimate Goal of Enlightenment. There many popular misconceptions among people about meditation and the attainment of Enlightenment. While some think they should leave their families, and go to the forests, caves or the Himalayas, others think that these are pursuits of the elderly; some even think that these were practices of the sages of yore. However, let it be known that in order to meditate one need not go anywhere, need not be beyond a certain age, or spend any money. Let it also be known that it is as relevant today to everyone of us as it was to the sages of yore. We are presently part of a transformation period on Earth. This transformation is taking place at a rapid pace, in effect speeding the elapse of Time. That we are here on Earth at precisely this juncture is surely a great opportunity to each one of us. That which took the sages of yore hundreds of years of meditation to achieve could now be achieved by us through few years of meditation. If we, through meditation, put one step forward then God and the Holy Masters will certainly take ten steps towards presenting us with Supreme Knowledge and unbound joy. Meditation is simply the highest and the most elevated spiritual path. The preeminence of meditation as a spiritual path has been cited in the Vedas. The following Vedic verse,

“Pradhamam vigraha pooja,
Japa sthothradhi madhyamam,
Thrithiyam maanasa pooja,
Soham pooja uthamothamam”

essentially means that idol worship is the most basic of them, followed by the practice of chanting sthothras/mantras outwardly and higher to both of these is the inward incantation of God from one’s heart. And the highest and foremost is meditation.
Lord Krishna says in the Uthara Gita,

“Koti pooja samam sthothram,
Koti sthothra samam japaha,
Japa koti samam dhyanam,
Dhyanam koti samam layaha”

“The recital of one crore poojas is equivalent to the invocation of a sthothra,
The invocation of one crore sthothras is equivalent to the performance of a japa,
The performance of one crore japas is equivalent to one sitting of meditation,
One crore sittings of meditation is equivalent to being one with God.”

“Thapasvi Byodhiko yogi, Jnani Byodhi Mathodhika.
Karmibhyaschaadhiko yogi, thasmaadyogi Bhavarjuna.”

Meaning, Meditation, Yoga or Penance are all the same.
“A Thapasi (one who does penance) is one who performs prayers, festivals, fasts
and gives himself bodily/corporeal suffering;
A Jnani is one who studies all the Vedas, Upanishads, Puranas and epics and is fully conversant and immersed in them. That is, one who acknowledges the eternal truth through the sacred literature; A karma yogi is one who performs yagnas, yagas and other allied rituals and spiritual sacrifices.“
According to Lord Sri Krishna, Anubhava Jnana (the knowledge gained through the experience of meditation) is more profound than the mere performance of penance or knowledge of sacred literature or the rituals and allied sacrifices. It is only through meditation that one gains perspective of the Spiritual Truth.

“Yogaha Karmasu Kausalam” Geetha: 2-50

“It is only through meditation that we can achieve efficiency, accuracy and proficiency in all our day-to-day activities.”

“Yogo Bhavathi Dhukaha” Geetha: 6-17
“It is only through the practice of meditation that our sorrows be completely
eradicated.” Why does the common man come into this world? What is his real work here? Has he taken birth only to eat, drink or amass wealth? What are the reasons for our various pains, losses and sufferings throughout our life? Where do we go after death? What do we do after death? Despite achieving multiple successes throughout our life, do such accomplishments give us eternal happiness? To start with, one should have an aspiration to attain enlightenment – the state of eternal bliss and happiness. Why do our thoughts remain perennially centered around our bodily desires? Shouldn't one be aware of his eternal Athman (the Soul) and dwell on it? Shall our lives and learning be filled with fulfilling our bodily desires? Don't we have a desire to learn about our Soul? It is along this lines that one should question himself. The answers for all these questions and more can be gotten by regular practice of meditation.

Prayers, fasts, sacrifices, Bahya Mantra Japam (outward chant of mantras), Bhajans (group singing of devotional songs), Antharangika Mantra Japam (inward silent chant of mantras), reading puranas/spiritual books are all but preparatory stages to meditation. We perform the above acts with the notion that we are distant and detached entities from God. However, through meditation we experience the oneness with God. Through meditation we can gain the understanding of the fact that God is within us. It is through meditation that we begin our search for the Eternal Truth. It is through meditation that we gain unbound energy; beyond human comprehension and more precious than all worldly riches. Through meditation we can gain deep realization and insight. One who meditates will perform his everyday activities and responsibilities with enthusiasm, joy and perfection. It is through meditation that one can gain the highest state of living. Meditation lifts our Mind and Soul towards the Eternal Truth. In meditation, we raise ourselves from corporeal manifestations of our worldly existence to the state of Divine existence. Meditation is the precious tool that enables us to stabilize our ever turbulent waves of disturbing thoughts and gives us lasting peace. Meditation can reform the wicked in to the Holy, and transform the physically, mentally weak to the realization of their profound strengths.
One can gain the entire spectrum of virtuous and harmonious living through the regular practice of meditation – health, mental peace, mutual understanding, concentration, memory, tolerance, common sense, bravery, constant awareness, self-confidence, self-control, release from bad habits, purity, contentment, mental strength, steadfastness, mental strength and stability, spiritual wisdom and Eternal Bliss. One who meditates fills this entire creation with kindness, empathy, generosity and love. Through meditation who can rid himself of unwanted desires and gains everlasting peace. In life one experiences the extremes of emotions - profound joy at the heights of success and suffers from bouts of depression at the depths of failure. Meditation enables one to treat these varied and volatile experiences with equanimity and empowers one to be joyous and confident even in the face numerous adversities.

Sri Sri Sri Bhoganatha Siddar's Gift to Humanity
The manifestation of God, Parama Guru Sri Sri Sri Bhoganatha Siddar, wishing the entire world Eternal Peace and Happiness, gifted the unique form of Sushumna Kriyayoga. He revealed that through the regular practice of Sushumna Kriyayoga, one can attain Moksha (Enlightenment or Eternal Bliss), while living a normal samsaric life of a grihastha (the married person). Sri Sri Sri Bhoganatha Siddar taught the practice of Sushumna Kriyayoga to Pujyasri Athmanandamayi Ammagaru in her meditation, in the Brahma Muhurtham, on the sacred festive day of Vinayaka Chathurthi – Wednesday, the 7th of September 2005. Sri Sri Sri Bhoganatha Siddar conveyed to Pujyasri Athmanandamayi Ammagaru that the taught practice of Sushumna Kriyayoga is adapted from the age-old art of Kriya Yoga Sadhana, in tune to the needs of modern times. The Sushumna Nadi meditative process is Kriya Yoga. Practicing Sushumna Kriyayoga One should be seated comfortably in either Sukhaasana or Padmasana. Make sure to keep your head and back straight as far as possible. Close your eyes and bring your palms together in the Yoga Mudra, as shown, The index fingers and thumbs should be kept together, with the index fingers pointing outwards from the body and the thumbs pointing inwards towards the body. The little, ring and middle fingers should be interlocked. When we meditate, the interlocking of the three fingers ensures the crossinteraction and the balancing of the Left and the Right parts of our brain and body. By placing the thumbs and index fingers together we enhance the flow of more prana or Divine energy into our system. Hence, when we meditate in this Yoga Mudra, the enhanced flow of the Divine energy spreads throughout the body and balances the spreading evenly towards the left and the right side of the mind. The mind then re-channelizes this energy into our body. Hence, we can gain greater concentration, alertness and peace.

Chant the Pranava Nadha – Omkara for 21 (Twenty One) times.
The chanting of the Omkara (Aum = Ah+Uh+M) begins with a deep inhalation and during the exhalation, the 'Ah' starts from our abdomen and as we proceed upwards the 'Uh' begins and remains so till it reaches the base of the neck, where we end it with the 'M'. 'Omkara' (Aum) is the confluence of Ah, Uh and Ma. When we utter Ah, the energy vibrations intensify and activate the Muladhara, Sadistana and Manipuraka Chakras. In uttering Uh, the energy vibrations activate the Anahata Chakra and when Ma is uttered, the Visudhi, Aagnya and Sahasrara Chakras get activated. Hence, when the 'Omkara' (Aum) , the vibrational energy that fills the entire cosmos, is chanted the vibrations of the Divine Energy/life force will be attracted and channelized towards our body. And this activates all the seven Chakras in our body, enables us better concentration and turns our mind inward (Antharmukam).

Deep breathing should be performed Twenty One times.
When we breathe slowly and deeply, our lungs will be filled with air. Hence, the body is filled with more oxygen and spreads the life energy (prana sakthi) throughout the body and also to all the cells in the mind. When we breathe we should do so with a sense of purpose and with dedication. When we inhale should have the Bhava (feel) that we are inhaling the Godliness, good health and virtuous qualities. And when we exhale we should have the Bhava that we are throwing out our hatred, jealousy, laziness and all our ill health. When we perform this deep breathing with such Bhava, we stand to gain concentration and a thoughtless state quickly. The mind then retains a peaceful countenance and does not get agitated easily. It is to be noted that when we are in a worried or disturbed state, the practice of deep breathing helps to redeem ourselves from anxiety.

Focus should be maintained between your two eye brows and a
thoughtless state should be gained.
This means to concentrate at the central point of your forehead. Do not chant any Mantra. Do not think of any form of God. Thereby, focusing the sight for sometime, we reach the thoughtless state. Slipping into such a thoughtless state and to remain there is meditation. Now the mind is in
bliss and when this bliss combines with our prana sakthi (life force), Divine Energy emerges in our body taking us 'Inner' and further immersing us into meditation and a stand still stage. This reaching of this 'Inward State' essentially means that our life force which flows in the outward direction from us through our thoughts, eyes and other sensory organs will begin to flow in the inward direction in to our body and mind. In such a state, abundant Divine energy passes through our 72000 Nadis (subtle astral tubes, which spread the Divine energy in our body) and cleanses, energizes and activates the entire Nadi Mandalam giving us complete health. During meditation, God's Divine energy will encircle us and takes us to such a blissful state. Some practitioners might achieve this state while meditating for the first ever time. For others it may take some days, for others some months or even years. This depends on their intensity in meditation, their karma from previous births, their present thoughts, cultures and their spiritual elevation.

Important Points To Be Noted
* It is best to meditate in the Brahma Muhurtham, between 3 AM to 6 AM.
Those who are unable to do so can meditate at any opportune time for them.
* It is best to drink a glass of water, either before or after meditation, in order to decrease the body heat that is generated due to the intense energy and to stabilize the body temperature.
* If we meditate just before sleep and thereby slowly slip into sleep it results in deep yogic sleep.
* If meditation is practiced jointly with other practitioners (group meditation), we can gain even more Divine Energy than when we meditate alone.
* Sushumna Nadi meditation can be practiced by all irrespective of religion, age or gender.
