FAMILY KARMA

FAMILY KARMA


Karma is only personal, when we talk about the karma of a clan or family, we mean “ancestral programs” or “birth canals”. Karma is the consequences that our heirs face. The causes of the consequences are the wrong actions committed by a person during his earthly life. The family program is active throughout the life of representatives of seven generations. Therefore, your great-grandfather or grandfather, with his deeds, emotions and thoughts, creates a program for your life.


In fact, the generic program is the information that your ancestors have accumulated over the course of seven generations. Information about their actions, thoughts and emotions is stored on the subtle plane: the sacral, sexual chakra of Svadhisthana, being an important factor that directly affects who you are now and the circumstances of your life. Information about the relationship between husband and wife is also located in the Svadhisthana chakra. Family relationships are built on three levels: physical, psychological and spiritual. Harmonious family relationships arise when there is physical satisfaction, psychological understanding and spiritual unity.

Question:
I was initiated into Kriya yoga, and have been practicing with your videos for many years now. You speak? that the lower Dantian is the same as the lower bindu. According to you, the lower bindu is located in the prostate-womb. But how is it that the lower Dantian is located under the navel 2-5 cm, inside the body, all Qigong sources talk about this. The prostate is anatomically located under the bladder, it is approximately the level of the pubic bone, not even close to the lower Dantian. The uterus in women, ideally, according to anatomy, is a level approximately between the navel and the pubic bone, but in reality, in all 99% of women, the uterus is lowered, in old age there is even a prolapse of the uterus through the vagina. How can there be bindu or lower Dantian? It seems to me that the lower bindu is not in the prostate, but 2-5 cm below the navel, as all Qigong sources interpret. But this is Kriya yoga, not Qigong, and Yogi Ramaiah taught you, you know better. Please clarify this extremely important issue for everyone!
Answer:
How to learn to meditate for beginners, how to understand where the chakras and bindu are? First of all, it is important to remember that there are many schools and directions of Qigui and Yoga. Therefore, we must be prepared that in different directions there may be different systems and a different understanding of the location of both the chakras and the bindus. Alas, it often happens that Chinese Qigong teachers deliberately hide the true information from students if they are not immediate relatives. Such is the tradition. This means that the Chinese Qigong masters are well aware of the true location of the lower Dantian, but do not reveal this information. All energy points in the human structure are always manifested quite physically. This is the reason why God created the physical body. The nervous system, internal organs, all this is part of the energy-information system. If the lower bindu (lower Dantian) were just a couple of centimeters below the navel, how would that relate to the body? It is important that this is connected with the manifested system of internal organs.

kriya


Question:
Tell me, what is the best hand position for practicing Kriya Yoga meditation? I read that Lahiri Mahasaya crossed his fingers as shown in the photo. Perhaps this is the best option?
Answer:
There are many possible hand positions, in yoga they are called mudras. There is no fixed position for the practice of Kriya Yoga meditation. Frankly, it is difficult to say what position of hands Lahiri Mahasa held during meditation. It is possible that it is exactly the same as in the famous photo, but perhaps not. Sri Yukreshwar preferred to keep his hands on his knees during mediation. My yoga teacher Ramaiah sometimes crossed his arms. The best hand position is the one you like best. The position that allows you to better concentrate on the process of meditation, to feel complete relaxation, is the one that is most correct for you personally.


KRIYA YOGA MEDITATION IS THE SCIENCE OF BREATHING

Kriya Yoga Meditation is the Science of Breathing


Babaji


An important basis for the breathing system in Kriya Yoga Meditation is Ujaya, the hissing breath. It allows you to inhale and exhale gradually, slowly, consciously. Hissing breath has a therapeutic effect on the entire nervous system and brain. More and more people from different countries are practicing meditation, mantras and yoga, asking philosophical questions. The apparent availability of ancient knowledge does not make it easier to apply, understand, practice.

Goals of Yoga

In ancient times, the famous emperor Janaka lived in India, he was not only a wise ruler, but also a practitioner of meditation and yoga. Once the emperor learned that Sage Ashtavakra had settled in the forest near his city. The emperor instantly left his palace and went on foot to the forest hut of Sage Ashtavakra. Upon entering the shelter of the Sage, Emperor Janaka modestly sat in front of him and asked several important questions about the essence of the spiritual path. This is how a wonderful philosophical text called Ashtavakra Gita appeared. This text is a philosophical conversation between Emperor Janaka and Sage Ashtavakra. Reading texts on the philosophy of Vedanta, one should see the deep meaning. The disciple asks his question, the Guru gives the answer, this is how the ancient texts of Vedanta are built. In relaxation and openness, all unnecessary disappears and eternity remains. Some prefer to call "this" Consciousness, some God. It makes no difference what you call eternity, words are the fruit of human intellect, they give rise to concepts, that is why in the Vedas they sometimes say “That” to describe eternity. The word “That” ideally reflects the transcendence of the Absolute Consciousness.

Satsang and Kriya Yoga

SATSANG
Author: Svetlana Dubyanskaya


The word Satsang comes from ancient Sanskrit, meaning communication with true spiritual seekers, being in the company of real yoga and meditation practitioners. It is also associated with communication with a guru. Satsang can be translated as "association" or "union". Satsang usually includes reading the scriptures, contemplation, discussion, and joint meditation. For many esoteric traditions, Satsang is a spiritual practice that helps achieve spiritual realizations.


Babaji


The idea of satsang​ is an auspicious spiritual environment, such as the presence of holy people and a guru, listening to scriptures or beautiful music, which allows one to raise his mind. Satsang is one of the main practices along with meditation, self-exploration and self-control. The great gurus of the Kriya Yoga tradition speak about the importance of Satsang.

Satsang comes from the Sanskrit words "sat" (being, essence) and "sanga" (communication). Yogananda, the great guru of the Kriya Yoga tradition, named his hermit abode Sat Sangha, which means "communication with the truth." The word Satsang refers to communication with people having similar spiritual aspirations, as well as communication with God in meditation.

Kriya Yoga: Advaita and Sankhya, Yoga Sastra, Jainism, Buddhism


Mandukya Kariki is written by Gaudapada most likely influenced by some Buddhist ideas. Religiously and socially, Adi Shankara acted more as a traditionalist and conservative. The study of numerous Vedic literature was traditionally strictly forbidden to the representatives of lower castes. There are many versions regarding the perception of Advaita philosophy set forth by Shankara as a disguised Buddhism. In the first centuries of the new era there was a sharp controversy between various schools of Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism in India.


Researchers note that in the culture of modern India, this is a complex topic demonstrating that the claims about the disguised Buddhism of Advaita are a great simplification of the true and real relationship and interconnection of Buddhism and Vedanta, their mutual influence and correlation. A number of European Indologists consider the Advaita Vedanta set forth by Shankara aslo be the most natural, absolutely logical and accurate interpretation of the main Upanishads.


Adi Shankara identified Avidya as Maya Shakti, the creative cosmic power of Brahman. Avidya Maya in his philosophical system is not defined as a really existing force. Unlike the concept of Shakti in the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism not as a perfect illusion.
