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

2019-11-29T07:03:30+00:00

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

2019-12-20T04:43:32+00:00

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 | Root Identity – The Muladhara Chakra

2019-12-25T14:14:06+00:00

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 [...]

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

2019-12-21T15:53:22+00:00

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 [...]

"As a human being, one has been endowed with just enough intelligence to be able to see clearly how utterly inadequate that intelligence is when confronted with what exists." - Albert Einstein Chitta, in Samskrit, the ancient language of Yoga, can be understood either as the entire range of consciousness, or the sub-conscious total memory storage area of the mind, depending upon the context in which the word is used. When Chitta is seen as the sub-conscious total memory storage area of the mind, the mind itself is seen as being composed of the following four parts: 1. Manas or the [...]
