A Practice For Life

Sthira Sukham Asanam (Seated posture should be steady and comfortable.).

Using the apparent limitation frees you of limitation   

Observing the behaviour of the body we notice the body uses whatever it falls on to lift itself back up again. Falling on the earth it uses the earth to pull itself back up again. Taking the body’s example yogis have been using the body through which we as conscious individuals ‘appear to fall’ to lift themselves selves back up for generations. Then using the breath to magnify and expand our body’s energy (pranayama) and finally the thoughts and ideas to break free of the limitation of the mind, becoming siddha accomplished, free while living the person is what is called jivanmuktah – free while living. 

Using the limitation to break free of all limitation is the principle that weaves it sway through yoga, तन्त्र tantra, आयुर्वेद ayurveda and siddha medicine

The end of Yoga

Purifying the nadhis (magnetic flows of energy) इष्ट माला ISHTA-Mala helps establish a steady comfortable seat – asana. Called siddhasana it becomes the launch pad used in pranayama because it allows full leverage of the body’s dynamic force. Merging the flow of power and magnetism in the body, prana & sakti, while adhering to a moderate diet and lifestyle (mitahari) practicing of इष्ट माला ISHTA-Mala daily can bring about the full harvest of yoga.

Based on the timeless teachings of the Tamil siddhas, the rejuvenating practices called Kaya Kalpam help clear आम ama (toxicity) from the body allowing ojas, the body’s natural juice or sap responsible for its immune system to flourish.

The powerful siddha kriya breathing and meditation practices (see इष्ट क्रिय ISHTA Kriya Yoga) can then be used to unlock the raw dynamic force and energy asleep in the nadhis. Only when the nadhis are completely purified is siddhanta, the end goal of yoga possible.

Also called Rasa Vidyam, looking for the limit to ones existence, the successful yogi or abhyasi (yoga practitioner) becoming adhikari discovers the limitless.

 इष्ट माला ISHTA Mala 

इष्ट माला ISHTA-Mala is a signature sequence, a personal home practice designed to tear away toxicity and reawaken the raw naked state of power and dynamism that is the human body. 

As consciousness you are already the power of sun and moon (Yin and Yang) the primal force of nature working in the body. Harnessing the power of raw magnetism (स्वर  Swara), becoming fully dynamic we find our lives becoming beautifully synchronistic.

The secret of how to keep the nadhis at full power (स्वर swara) and magnetic dynamism has always been kept by the Siddhas

 इष्ट माला ISHTA-Mala – Pure Power for the 21st Century

A householder staying on top of their game requires a discipline not many are prepared for.

इष्ट माला ISHTA-Mala* is retro style yoga at its best. Yoga without the frills and spills. A suite of yoga asana designed to maintain the body’s elasticity and avoid injury, इष्ट माला ISHTA-Mala meets you at the very heart of your yoga practice. Meeting the needs and time frames of each individual once you commit माला Mala to memory yoga practice becomes the purifying essence of joy and happy living.

Glorying in the Truth, (darshan) freed from all limitation the person having a prepared mind – mumukshutwam – flowers in Self Knowledge. Experiencing the Oneness इष्टम् ISHTAM .
that is themselves, liberated while living the person is 
jivamuktah. (see इष्ट विद्या ISHTA Vidya).

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