Sadhana: Kundalini Yoga

What is sadhana?

When you seek to know about Kundalini Yoga, sadhana is a daily spiritual practice, a self disciple of the mind and body to serve the soul.

Aquarian Age’s motto is “I Know, Therefore I Believe.”

Three Reasons Why To Attend The Sat Nam Festival 

Here are 3 Top reasons why we are  looking forward to attending the Sat Nam Fest: 

1) MUSIC: World renowned musicians such as Snatam Kaur, Mirabai Ceiba, Simrit, Ajeet Kaur, Aykanna, and Jai-Jagadeesh all encompass the healing power of the sound current Naam. They perform passionate concerts that uplift and inspire. 


2) LIKE-MINDED SOULS: The Kundalini community is one of the strongest yoga communities in the world; practitioners deeply connect with each other through yoga ​practices, sadhana, and seva (selfless service). During the festival chanting the mantras and practicing the kriyas together, personal individual efforts are amplified to create a beautiful and powerful healing group energy. 

3) YOGA: Sat Nam Fest West expects to see more than 1,000 people this year. With 3 stages, there will be opportunity for everyone to jump into the vortex. You’ll see a lot of people wearing white, but there’s no dress code. Wearing white is a part of the technology of Kundalini yoga. It boosts your aura and helps you feel radiant. Spirit Voyage suggests bringing something to cover your head during meditation, but it’s not required. It’s best to wear what brings you joy and elevates you! 

Gurdwara, you will need to cover your head as a part of the tradition. Covering the head helps to raise the Kundalini energy up the spine, makes meditation more effective, keeps you grounded when you’re doing a TON of powerful pranayama and chanting, it makes many of us feel great! Kundalini yoga can be done by beginners and yogis at any level. There are often things that a beginner won’t be able to do…but you just do the best you can. If you can’t get into a pose, don’t worry… just do your best. Kundalini yoga is very non-competitive and is just about your personal, private experience. You definitely will be able to enjoy the yoga in Ramdesh’s relaxation workshop with Ashana. She’ll be doing lots of gentle movement and lie-flat-on-your-back relaxing gentleness. But most of all jump in and have fun no matter which class you opt for! 

What is Gyan Mudra?

A mudra is a hand position that guides energy flow and by utilizing hand positions we can affect many systems in the body, each representing different emotions and behaviors.

Each finger relates to a planetary energy and the thumb represents individual persona. One of the most common mudras is Gyan Mudra (forefinger known as Jupiter finger and thumb touch) This mudra activates wisdom. By touching the fingers and palms, we can effectively communicate to the body and mind. It is a technique for giving clear messages to the mind-body-energy system.

Gyan Mudra is a powerful mudra practiced for thousands of years by yogis that bring peace, calm and spiritual progression. Spiritual masters such as Yeshua (Jesus), Buddha, and Guru Nanak are all shown regularly with this hand position relating to planet Jupiter.

 

How to do Gyan Mudra:   

Connect the thumb and the forefinger tip to tip. The other fingers are straight but relaxed. Pressure between the thumb and Jupiter finger is light.

Why practice Gyan Mudra?

Gyan Mudra has variety. Stimulating the root chakra, it eases tension. Relates to expansion and knowledge. It is extremely calming and brings forth a spiritual openness and ease in meditation. Also, known as Vaayu-Varhak in traditional Ayurveda, this mudra boots the air element (Vaayu), stimulating the brain, empowering the mind, nervous system, and pituitary gland. Gyan Mudra’s benefits include stimulating the endocrine system and through the air element it dries out joints and cartilage which might be full of fluid, causing joint stiffness and pain.

Gyan mudra is most often practiced with the hands resting on the knees and the elbows straight. When the palms face down, the feeling it conveys is grounding and rooting oneself to the earth. When the palms point out, you are connecting yourself to celestial knowledge.

This wonderful technique can be done anywhere at anytime! For more information on mudras, mantras, meditations and kriyas, follow us on Facebook Twitter and Instagram

Peace to all, Life to all, Love to all, Sat Nam. Sat Nam means truth is my identity and Om Shanti.. Shanti means Peace.

Enchantment Mantra

Self-love. It can be a hard thing to pull off,  and also the greatest gift we can give ourselves. By loving ourselves openly, honestly, and completely, we can heal the wounds of the heart and feel truly beautiful. It helps, asking the universe for support. Getting to a quiet space and consciously changing thoughts. I realize more and more that we are the products of our own thought patterns. When you change the conversation everything within you shifts and in this intimate space you can truly embody the goddess within and create a loving life!

Kundalini Yoga and Meditation gives us technologies to feel beautiful from the inside out. The mantras and meditations tap us into a place of unconditional love and connection with the divine.

A beautiful simple mantra that is in the language of English is:

I am Bountiful, I am Blissful, I am Beautiful

beautiful-blissful-1

Give it a try and see how you feel. Three minutes a day for 40 days you will see a huge shift in your vibration and in life.

Sat Nam (truth is my identity)

Making Your Own Ghee At Home

This liquid gold making at home is a simple task that can be accomplished very quickly and easily. Ghee can be used in place of butter and is an ideal cooking oil, as it does not burn unless heated excessively. It makes a wonderful body oil for massage and can serve as a base for herbal ointments.

Ghee is a digestive. It helps to improve absorption and assimilation. It nourishes ojas, tejas and prana. It is good for improving memory and lubricates the connective tissue making the body flexible and, in small doses, is tridoshic. Yogavahi, Ghee is- a catalytic agent that carries the medicinal properties of herbs into the seven dhatus.

Ingredients:

Organic Unsalted Butter

Directions:

Simmer sweet butter for 10 minutes over medium heat. Let cool for a few minutes, then remove all the white foam from the top. Clear yellow ghee will remain. Pour this through a cheesecloth into a container, not allowing any white sediment at the bottom of the pan to slide in.

Cover your jars loosely and let your precious ghee set for several hours at room temperature.
