A Practice For Life

'Complicated practices keep distracting and separating us from oneness. The essence of yoga is already existing. Experiencing yourself as the yoga itself is effortless raw and naked.' 

 इष्ट माला ISHTA Mala 

 इष्ट माला ISHTA-Mala is a personal home practice. A signature sequence designed to take away the toxicity and awaken the raw naked power of pure dynamism. 

Already the power of sun and moon (Yin and Yang) are the primal force in human beings. Harnessing their flow (स्वर  Swara) makes life whole and beautifully synchronistic.

How to keep the nadhis pure, awake and full of magnetic power and dynamism (swara) is a secret kept by the Siddhas

 इष्ट माला ISHTA-Mala - Pure Dynamic power for the 21st Century

As a householder keeping on top of your game in the 21st Century requires discipline. As a practice इष्ट माला ISHTA-Mala* is retro style yoga without frills and spills. A yoga suite designed to suit the individual, fitting all needs and time frames. Once committed to memory माला Mala becomes a pure practice for life.

 Using the apparent limitation to free yourself of limitation   

Observing the human body it will be noticed, the body uses whatever it falls on to lift itself. Falling on the earth the body uses the earth to push itself back up again. Taking the body's example, siddha yoga uses the body through which we as conscious individuals 'appear to fall' to lift our ourselves up again, pranayama to dynamically magnify and expand our energy and finally, using the mind we break free of the minds limitations. Thus through using the limitations we can free ourselves of all limitation. Becoming free and accomplished  - siddha one is able to relish and enjoy the nectar of life. This principal of using the limitation to break the limitation weaves its way through all yoga, तन्त्र tantra and आयुर्वेद ayurveda.

The end of Yoga

Besides purifying the nadhis (magnetic flows of energy) इष्ट माला ISHTA-Mala also helps establish the sadhak in siddhasana, the seat or asana of siddha yoga. Siddhasana is the launch pad from which pranayama, full expansion of power and vitality in the body takes place. Doing इष्ट माला ISHTA-Mala daily while adhering to a moderate diet and lifestyle (mitahari) able to sit in siddhasana you gain the leverage to harvest the fullness and fruit of yoga.

Passed on through a powerful siddha tradition, the purification process is called Kaya Kalpam. Once the body is cleared of आम ama (toxicity), ojas, the body's juice or sap responsible for its immune system flourishes. The beautiful siddha kriya breathing and meditation practices (see इष्ट क्रिय ISHTA Kriya Yoga) are experienced once you unblock and unlock the dormant power of the nadhis.  Once purified, awakening the nadhis makes siddhanta the end of yoga possible.

Also called Rasa Vidyam, a successful yogi or abhyasi (yoga practitioner) looking for the limit to ones existence, becoming adhikari, discovers the limitless.
eady to glimpse the Truth, one is f
reed of all limitation. That person with a prepared mind - mumukshutwam - experiences इष्टम् ISHTAM the flowering of Self Knowledge. Awake, free while living the person is jivamuktah. (see इष्ट विद्या ISHTA Vidya).

* 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.
