Breath of Life
Asta Yoga of Siddha Rishi Agustya

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

What is Siddha today?
A sādhaka is one who 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 getting a newspaper at the corner store.
For us all today, work is our sadhana. In short, staying on top of our game, putting food on the table, paying the rent or mortgage, maintaining a lifestyle and keeping our important relationships together.
If we can accomplish these we are 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. 

Our body as the field or counter of enjoyment.

Before you go milking the body, it has to be made milkeable. It has to have the juice, called Ojas available.
Milking the body with the Siddha Kriya Method ones complete enjoyment in and of the world is possible.

Because the Siddha Kriya Method leverages the Swara, the flow of sun and moon – vitality and magnetism flowing through the body’s nadhis (energy flows) keeps the body full of power and vitality – called qi or chi. With the whole system revitalised on a daily basis by the Siddha Kriya Method, the body’s juice and its natural state of balance and resilience is maintained

Together with a daily regime of ISHTA-Mala इष्ट माला (asana sequence) ISHTA Kriya इष्ट क्रिय keeps the body energy subtle and under our control. Once the body has been trained 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 prana, shakti, the body’s dynamic life-force, awakens making the body resilient – called a diamond body.
As the power of vitality flourishes and increases it automatically increases our immunity to disease. Becoming filled with magnetic dynamism, the accomplishment of yoga (balance) makes all our relative goals in life achievable and possible. 

Reversing the ageing process, Kriya re-boots the body’s immune system bringing the Swara (the flow of life force energy) under full control. Awake and alert to our full force as 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, dynamic synchronism makes achieving anything possible.

Depending on the desire and 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 accomplish 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 makes moksha, freedom and liberation from all pain and suffering in this lifetime possible. 

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

Merging the pure power of prana and shakti – energy and magnetism – is the key. Once Sushumna nadhi becomes fully alive and active, we become our own wish fulfilling tree. The full power of magnetic dynamism means synchronicity immediately harmonises our relationships with the whole universe.
Succeeding in all our actions our whole life becomes a rich and beautiful tapestry.
