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 being human one discovers 
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 getting the newspaper at the corner store or a cup of coffee.
For us 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 all our relationships together. If we can accomplish all these 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 go milking the body, it has to be milkable. In other words have juice, ojas. Milking the body through the Siddha Kriya Method all the enjoyment of the world 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) and keeps the body full of qi – chi. Revitalising the system on a daily basis maintains the body’s juice and its natural state of resilience

The regime of ISHTA-Mala इष्ट माला (asana sequence) and ISHTA Kriya इष्ट क्रिय done daily,  keeps the body energy subtle bringing it under our control. Able to sit in siddhasana we can use the Siddha Kriya Method of breathing to combust and expands our energy and vitality. Giving dimension to pranashakti the body’s life-force, the body becomes resilient and dynamic; a diamond body. As the vitality flourishes and increases so our immune system is able to ward off disease. Becoming filled with magnetic dynamism, the accomplishing yoga, the accomplishment of all our goals in life is possible. 

Reversing the ageing process of the body Kriya  re-boots its immune system and brings Swara (the flow of life energy) under our full control. Awake and alive in full force, Siva and Sakti (consciousness and energy; Sun and Moon), the two dynamic principles powering the body and the universe, no longer dormant, ignite under our full control. Once we fully master the swara, becoming fully magnetised our lives become dynamically synchronistic and achieving anything is possible.

Depending on our desire and karma (action) taken to achieve our goal and conscious behaviour – dharma-  drawing on the vital power of Sun and Moon at your disposal, the more accomplished (siddha) you are as a yogi the more you accomplish and more you succeed in life.

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 accomplishing 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, the full power of magnetic dynamism brings synchronicity into our lives and harmonises our relationships with the whole of nature. Succeeding in our actions our whole life becomes successful.
