 ISHTA KRIYA इष्ट क्रिय

Exploring Asta Yoga of Siddha Rishi Agustya Muni

What does being accomplished – Siddha – mean today?

Sadhana is as simple as walking to the corner store to get the newspaper.
Today our work is our sadhana. In short, staying on top your game. Putting food on the table, paying the rent or mortgage and maintaining our relationships.

‘A sādhaka is one who 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.’



Be Your Own Wish Fulfilling Tree. 

Ultimately yoga and our life purpose is to prepare our mind (adhikari) to be able to accept the truth being spoken of in all the scriptures. Wanting moksha the goal of life at all costs, desiring freedom and liberation from death in this very lifetime, no matter what, letting nothing stand in the way, we use the limited bodymind, the only vehicle we have, to get us to the limitless. Once there, no longer a sadhaka, sadhana is successful and we have accomplished our goal.

As we age the body mind becomes sluggish, docile and lazy. For sadhana to be successful and have any impact on the things, requires discipline and a bodymind that is responsive and fit for the job.
Kriya boots the immune system and makes accomplishments possible. S
ucceeding in all our actions, our life becomes a rich meaningful tapestry. 


Absolute Power arises in Absolute Stillness. The ability to voluntarily influence the bodymind through breathing has been a secret long held by the Siddhars. 

Asta Yoga of the Siddhas

Our body is a counter for enjoyment. 

ISHTA Kriya इष्ट क्रिय sadhana is the Kriya Siddha Method to generate all the power, stamina, vitality and vigour we need to fully enjoy our existence and journey in the creation. As much as vitality, ojas can be enhanced through yogabhyasa and pranabhyasa, ojas can also be depleted through a volatile lifestyle. Through Asta Yoga of the Siddhas we are able to milk the body of its vital juice and create amrit the magic nectar.

To succeed at yoga in the 21st century, your body has to be ‘milkable’.

In Asta Yoga we learn how to trick the body into releasing its juice. Plying the body milking the body of its life force, expanding pranashakti, magnetic dynamism and pure potentiality is a trick. Before you can go tricking and leveraging universal life force, the body needs to be prepared or, it can burn out. Tapping into nature’s unlimited power supply, the complete practice of Yoga requires the body’s main nadhis (energy flows or pathways) to be fully open! This comes through regular daily asana practice which ISHTA Mala इष्ट माला asana sequence is designed to do. 

The sun and moon Nadhis are the two main energy flows that control the flow called Swara which when open allow the fullness of vitality and dynamism to flourish.


magnetic dynamism

Siddha Kriya Method

The more shakti, magnetic dynamism and life force we have, the more we can ignite our ideas and flourish in the world making all our achievements and desired dreams and goals possible.

By reversing the ageing process, the Siddha Kriya Method brings the full flow of Swara under our personal control. Doing the Siddha Kriya Method, allows the full dynamism of Siva and Vasi (consciousness and energy), Sun and Moon energy, the dynamic principles governing the creation to flow through our lives.

No longer dormant, as though waking up from deep slumber, becoming our own wish fulfilling tree, mastering the swara, energy, whatever karma (action) we take to achieve our desired goal is more likely to succeed.

Being Born human is the most exotic thing that can happen in our lifetime.

Seeking more exotic experiences, no experience is more profound or exotic than 

Simply Being Human
