 ISHTA KRIYA इष्ट क्रिय

Breath of Life
Asta Yoga of Siddha Rishi Agustya

A Siddhar is an alchemist, scientist, poet, wizard, engineer, mathematician, physicist, logician etc. 
Adept in all 64 talents, searching for the limit of human existence they discovered 
the limitless.

What is Siddha today?
A sādhaka wants to accomplish something; he is a seeker. Sādhana is the means of accomplishment. What is to be accomplished is sādhya. What is to be accomplished gives meaning and determines the means or sadhana. When the sādhaka has accomplished the sādhya, employing the sādhana, he is called a siddha.

Sadhana can be as simple as going to get a newspaper at the corner store or a cup of coffee.
For all of us today, work is our sadhana. In short staying on top of your game, putting food on the table, paying the rent or mortgage, maintaining a lifestyle and keeping all our relationships together.
If we can accomplish all that we are a siddha today.

Absolute Power Arises in Absolute Stillness

The ability to voluntarily influence the body through the breath is a secret that has long been kept by the Siddhars. 

The body as the counter for enjoyment.

Before you can go milking the body, it has to be milkable. In other words it has to have juice, ojas.
Milking the body through the Siddha Kriya Method the full enjoyment of the world is possible.

The Siddha Kriya Method leverages the Swara, the flow of sun and moon – vitality and magnetism flowing through the body’s nadhis (energy flows). This keeps the body full of qi – chi. Revitalising the whole system on a daily basis the Siddha Kriya Method maintains the body’s juice and keeps its natural state of balance and resilience

The daily regime of ISHTA-Mala इष्ट माला (asana sequence) coupled with ISHTA Kriya इष्ट क्रिय keeps the body energy subtle bringing it under our complete control. Once the body has been trained and is able to sit in siddhasana we can use it to do the Siddha Kriya Method of breathing and use its combustable and expandable energy to enhance vitality. Giving dimension to pranashakti, the body’s life-force, the practice awakens the resilient dynamism making it a diamond body.
As vitality flourishes it increases our immunity to disease. Becoming filled with magnetic dynamism, the accomplishment of yoga and all our relative goals in life is possible. 

Reversing the ageing process of the body Kriya re-boots our immune system bringing the Swara (the flow of life energy) under our full control. Awake and alert to the full force of Siva and Sakti (consciousness and energy; Sun and Moon), the two dynamic principles governing and powering the body and the universe, no longer dormant, as we fully master the swara, mastering our lives, dynamically and synchronistically achieving anything is possible.

Depending on the desire and the karma (action) taken –  drawing on the vital power of Sun and Moon already at our disposal, the more accomplished (siddha) we become as a yogi, the more we accomplished we become in the world.

At Patanjali Samadhi with Sri Lasri Sivananda Pulipani Pathira Swamigal dynastic head of the Boghanathar Siddha Parampei which spawned the Patanjali sutras.
Visiting Rameshwram the Siddha Patanjali’s Samadhi. Known by his Northern name Vyagrapadar, Sage Patanjali was a disciple of Sri Pulipanni Siddha the ancestor of Srilasri Sivananda Pulipani (pictured here with John and an astrologer Krishna Ayer). Patanjali did Sadhana at Shiva Giri Mountain Palani and in Pulipani Siddha Ashramam. 

Kriya – Path to Pathless. 

Ultimately a clear prepared mind (adhikari) and body makes moksha, freedom and liberation from all pain and suffering in this very lifetime possible. 

As we age our body becomes sluggish and mind restless and lazy. Being unresponsive makes accomplishment difficult. Yet the body mind is our only vehicle and only tool we have to get anywhere. 

Merging the pure power of prana and shakti – energy and magnetism – opens the door. Once Sushumna nadhi becomes fully alive and active, becoming our own wish fulfilling tree, the full power of magnetic dynamism brings synchronicity into our lives and harmonises our relationships with the whole universe.
Succeeding in all our actions our whole life becomes beautiful.
