A Practice For Life

'Complicated practices distracted and separated me from the oneness of yoga. 

When you experience yoga as yourself it is raw and naked.' 

 इष्ट माला ISHTA Mala 

इष्ट माला ISHTA-Mala is my own personal practice. A signature sequence designed to awaken the raw naked power and pure dynamism of Sun and Moon (YIN & YANG) nadhis. 

The sun and moon are already the eternal forces of nature that power our life. Harnessing their flow your whole life becomes beautifully synchronistic.

The secret of how to awaken the nadhis and make their pure magnetic power (swara) flow in your life has always been kept by the Siddhas.

The end of Yoga

 इष्ट माला ISHTA-Mala purifies the nadhis (the body's main magnetic energy flows) and helps establish you in siddhasana. From this the solid platform you get the leverage for pranayama - the expand the vitality, vigour and dynamic power in the body. Doing इष्ट माला ISHTA-Mala  and adhering to a moderate diet and lifestyle (mitahari) daily you gain the fruit of yoga.

Part of the powerful siddha purification process called Kaya Kalpam, clearing आम ama  (toxicity from the body) allows ojas the juice, or sap in the body responsible for its immune system to flourish. The powerful siddha kriya breathing and meditation practices can then start.  (see इष्ट क्रिय ISHTA Kriya Yoga )
 the nadhis are purified siddhanta the end of yoga is possible. Until the nadhis are pure, achieving yoga is difficult. 

Called Rasa Vidyam successful in yoga the abhyasi (yoga practitioner) becomes adhikari ready to glimpse the Truth.

Freed from all limitation, इष्टम् ISHTAM the flowering of the human being in Self Knowledge is then possible (see इष्ट विद्या ISHTA Vidya).

 Using the apparent limitation to free ourselves from limitation   

Observing the behaviour of the human body yogis noticed that falling on the earth the body uses the earth to lift itself. This tantric principal weaves its way through योग yoga,तन्त्र tantra, आयुर्वेद ayurveda and सिद्ध siddha medicine. Using this example yoga uses the body through which we as conscious individuals 'appear' to fall to lift ourselves back up again.
First we use the body to bring it back to its natural state through asana practice, then through pranayama we dynamically awaken and expand the body's energy and finally through gnanbuddhiyoga thoughts and their modifications are used to free the mind of limitation.

* The term इष्ट माला ISHTA-MALA derives from Ishvarapranidana the heart of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. इष्ट माला ISHTA-MALA is a garland of practices used to balance the doshas and help re-establish and build ojas in the system. A healthy body paves the way for establishing your personal relationship with your Ishtadev - your personal deity. The job of your Ishtadev is to bring you to the Truth. A prepared and clear mind, called adhikari, is ready (mumukshutwam) to glimpse the Truth (darshan).
Doing माला Mala daily is an offering of Tapas at the feet of Isha the Divine.
