Siddhars have made a science of exploring their unlimited power. What does Siddha mean today?
Sadhana: gaining what is not yet gained. Accomplishing a relative goal. Anyone successful at sadhana is Siddha.
Sadhana can be as simple as getting a newspaper at the store. Today our work is our sadhana. Staying on top of your game, putting food on the table, paying the rent or mortgage, while trying to maintain a secure, healthy, happy lifestyle and keeping family relationships and marriage together.
With a clear prepared mind (adhikari), the goal moksha, freedom and liberation from all pain and suffering is possible.
To succeed at any sadhana requires discipline and a clear mind.
Kriya - the path to effortless wellbeing.
As we age our body becomes sluggish and mind unresponsive. Yet our body is our tool to help us accomplish all our relative goals and objectives. Practicing Kriya yoga helps to maintain the body's natural state. While asana clears toxins (am) - the Kriya practices give prana, the body's life force responsible for healing dimension. As Prana flourishes, building and expanding the body's subtle energy flows the whole system flourishes.
Once the nadhi pathways are suddhi, purified and wide open, the next wave of yoga - that of dynamically expanding the body's vitality giving dimension to prana begins. Through the process of Kriya the vital pranas merged with pure shakti become fully dynamic and powerful, strengthening the subtle connection between the subtle body (the enjoyer) and physical body (the counter for enjoyment!).
Without being healthy, true enjoyment is not possible!
