What it means to be Siddha today
A sadhu doing sadhana is attempting to gain that which is not yet gained. Anyone successful at sadhana is called as a Siddha.
Today our work is our sadhana. Staying on top of our game, trying to stay healthy, keeping our relationships or marriage together and putting food on the table. .
To succeed at our sadhana a healthy body and healthy mind is key.
A healthy body is a healthy happy mind.
In its natural state the body is a perfect vehicle. The practices of yoga and adhering to strict diet and lifestyle, helps keep it that way. Taken as exercise, yoga clears the toxins (Am) from the system allowing prana to flow (the body's vital energy) in the energy pathways (nadis). Keeping the body chemistry (dhatus) at optimum yoga maintains a healthy balance of the bio-elements (doshas).
Once the energy pathways are clear, pranayama - the next stage of yoga - expansion of our vital energy through Kriya breathing exercises is possible.
Pranayama is actively controlling and managing the vitality (pranasakti - vasi) of the body by doing Kriyas (controlled power breathing exercises). Sublimating the vital force (pranic force or Shakti ) is the ultimate goal. Once absolute stability and vitality is reached - energy - Vasi - becomes abundantly available.
The ageing of the body is inevitable. इष्ट माला ISHTA-MALA combined with इष्ट क्रिय ISHTA Kriya reboots the bodies immune system bringing whole body back to life. Power - Vasi - is the vital resource needed to live a successful lifestyle.
Without vitality succeeding at any sadhana becomes difficult.
