Are You a Spiritual Hacker?


All the religions in the world are our common human legacy, yours and mine. This is both our spiritual starting point and ending point. But, like Nation, Gender and Age, we humans are also categorised and separated by Religion or the lack of belief in it. The usual starting point of spirituality for anybody would be religion of his/her birth and the type of association he/she forms with such religion. The ending point is where the true spiritualist recognises all religions (and none), not as exclusive to each another, but where they are cognized as an integrated whole, and this whole [...]

Introduction to Yoga Psychology


The basis of all psychological systems based on the Yogas and the Tantras is Self-Identification.The Self-identification is the primary attribution based on which there is individual, unique, perception of the world, the self and the interaction between the two. Self-identification is necessarily psychosomatic or psychological as well as physical. It is the contention of the Yogic Sciences that it is this very attributional Self-identification that is the Base, the Source of our abilities, our disabilities, our pain and intermittent pleasure. Now, what is to be noted here first and foremost is that Yoga Psychology does not accept substantial reality of this [...]

7 Chakras- The Top 5 Positive Psychological Qualities of the Chakras


Muladhara Chakra/ Circle of the ‘Order of the Foundation’ : Based on the World of Instinct and the Core Physical Body, the Muladhara Chakra is also the Foundational Circle of the Earth Element, the last of the manifest Elements. Stability: Without an active and balanced Muladhara, there can be no stability in the psychosomatic person, in the body and the mind. Scattering of the mind in terms of hyperactive thinking processes, unsteadiness of the breathing cycle and a weaker skeeto-muscular structure will be the result of a weakened or unbalanced Muladhara. For achieving anything, a stable mind and body are necessary. [...]

7 Chakras: Part Two- the World of Brahma and the first 3 Chakras


In order to understand the first 3 Brahma Chakras or energy centres within our pyscho-somatic selves, we must first understand the concept of Brahma. Brahma, the word is made up of three parts. Like everything else in the Sanskrit language, the meaning of any word in Sanskrit is the combination of its Mantra sounds. In normal languages of human communication, a word is constructed through popular usage over a period of time. Not so in Sanskrit. Being a science of mantra sounds, and not strictly speaking a language, every word in Sanskrit has been ‘heard’ or ‘observed’ by the Rishis, the [...]

Yoga Psychology | Breaking the knot of Lust


The Human mind, as per yogic traditions has 3 modes of being- the Instinctive, the Intellectual and the Intuitive. Every thought, emotion and action comes from a cognitive base dominated by one of these three, but in which the other two modes are also present to varying degrees. According to Yogic Psychology, lust is the instinctive version of intellectual affection, as is love the intuitive mode of instinctive lust. From desire eternal, springs the hope of acquiring, or accomplishing that which is desired, then comes the joy of the hunt or the search, followed by the accomplishment or acquirement and its [...]

Yoga Psychology | Overcoming Fear


Fear arises with Life, for all that is born will surely die. A star, a planet, a human or a tree, all of these have a life expectancy upon the expiry of which period, they all succumb to the opposite of life, death. The most primal fear, that of not-being, or death, is shared by all manifest objects in the Universe. In Yogic Psychology terms, this primal fear-emotion is said to be concentrated in the Mūlādhāra Chakra or the Root-Identity Consciousness. 4 Parts of Fear Physical Fear Primal fear is, in the human, to be seen in four parts. The first [...]

Yoga Psychology | Root Identity – The Muladhara Chakra


As per Freudian psychoanalytic theory, there is in the normal human mind the awareness of the Ego, the Id and the Super-Ego and these together make up the persons sense of identity. The Id is instinctive and is constructed of basic pleasure principles, the Super-Ego is the idealist and the ‘conscience’, whereas the Ego is the practical sense of identity that negotiates and acts between the two. So Id comes first, followed by Ego and lastly the matured Super-Ego, in a vertical. In Yogic theory, the tripartite division of the cognitive sense of identity is horizontal, unlike the vertical of the [...]

The Yoga Revolution-Taking it to the Next Level


There is a lot of talk in Yoga circles today, of the watering down of Yoga by Yoga teaching institutes in alliance with an American registry of Yoga teachers. Accusations fly through the internet that the American registry has converted Yoga education into a vocational business. Doubts are cast on the skill and knowledge levels of a lot of the ‘teachers’ included in the registry. Fingers point to the fact that most of the students paying top-dollar for their 200 or 300 Hour TTC/ Certifications are in no position to perfect all the asanas, let alone teaching them, within just one [...]

Yoga Psychology | The Four Types of Courage


The 4 Types of Courage - Four Viryas When we see speak about courage in Yoga, it is of four kinds- DharamVir, KaramVir, YudhaVir and DanaVir, namely the Courage of Righteousness, Courage of Right Action, Courage in War and Courageous Generosity.

Yoga Psychology | The Heart of Faith


Doubt, sans questioning is a self-destroying mechanism and eats away at the emotional Heart like a cancer. Cardiologists around the world agree that stress, or forms of stress are the single most common supporting factor for the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases. During the mental process of doubting the breathing process becomes shallow and the lung capacity is reduced as one indulges excessively in self-destructive doubting. A lowered lung capacity would mean lowered blood oxygenation at first and over time this would lead to stenosis in the systemic organs as well as the CNS-Brain system. In turn, such stenosis would lead to [...]
