Importance of Vata among tridosha

Vata is the most important among tridoshas. Pitta and kapha are less important. The vata carries them to different places. Like in nature, clouds are moved by wind, similarly vata maves pitta and kapha to move all over the body.

Vata or Vayu is described as Ayu, or life as bala or strength. Prabhu or master and the entire universe itself is travelling under the control of vata. Acharya Charak described Vayu in Charak sutrasthan in 12th chapter in a symposium as Vata.

The reasons behind its important are given below.

These points can also be reffered as vata sworupa or physiology of Vata

My expirence on the path of Samadhi

Last article was just an introduction to Samadhi.

To be in Samadhi one should have zero mind. i.e think nothing. Everybody says this statement, but question arises here HOW?

It’s all practice you need to do. The qualities of Mind are Aanutwo and Aakatwo. i.e to think single thing in its minute nature.To go to its deepest possible cause. This is the quality of mind. However in modern time, right from birth mind start to divert elsewhere. A child feels borde to watch the shows that has less frame rate. His mind is totally diverted from the original property of mind. Now he can’t stay calm from mind even for a second. That is why I am still unable to get Samadhi, and this may be the cause in you. So we must first make our mind to gain its original power or qualities. It is possible only by practicing. Continue reading My expirence on the path of Samadhi

What is Samadhi?

Some says wisdom lead to Samadhi. Osho says sambhog is one path to Samadhi. Some also say LSD is false way to Samadhi. So what Samadhi really is? Is yoga a path of Samadhi? How do we acquire it? Is it that; we must always try to acquire Samadhi? Many questions on mind.

In our seminars we take people through a process until their perception of any one single event is perfectly balanced. The event is no longer good or bad, right or wrong, it is simply perfect as it is. At this point amazing experiences occur for the person undergoing the collapse process. With a perfectly balanced perception of the event, the individual is free to acknowledge the order in that event. They are then free to become grateful to the person, persons or thing that caused the event, and in so doing release love. Samadhi means to merge—bring both sides of duality and judgement to one at which time, in perfect symmetry, love is birthed.

Life, Yoga and the Universe

Yoga texts divide the universe into two distinct areas, above and below, or purusa and prakrti.  Purusa is above. It is unchanging, constant and that part of us capable of ‘real’ seeing and perception. Prakrti is below. It is that part that is ever changing—our mind, memories and emotions. All material things, matter and life is prakrti, the source of which is the one—the original matter from which all things are formed.

We have a soul—a timeless, spaceless entity which is outside our body. This soul (pupusa) is unchanging, constant. We are the higher mind, and that is our being which has the ability to listen to the soul, or the material world, of prakrti. The material world is a reflection, a mirror, of the soul and as a consequence we are challenged to see the perfection of creation in our lives as they are in the material world. It is therefore a challenge to be in the material world, to interact and participate with others and to master, rather than escape from, the seven areas of life.

Person is Equal to universe (Lok-Purusha Similarity)

As living body is also one object in the universe; Lok (universe) and Purusha (Person) are similar. This statement is important to know about purusha(person) from the study of universe. Also all the chemical and physical laws are equally applied to external objects and in human body. In human body, just with a little modification; due to the presence of mind, intellect and sprit in man. (dhee, dhriti, smriti) .

Aacharya Charak in his “Shareer sthan” of Charak Samhita purusha vichaya chapter gives a list of similarities in between man and world. Continue reading Person is Equal to universe (Lok-Purusha Similarity)
