Prarambhik -Asans (part 1) (आसन शृंखला: प्रारंभिक – 1)

The different systems of the body like the muscular, skeletal, nervous or excretory work together in tandem to keep the body and it’s functioning in harmony. To keep the body disease-free, its important to stop its manifestation in the physical body as soon as possible. Disease first manifests in the pranic layer also referred as the aura. The clairvoyants at Dhyan Ashram describe this layer in the form of colours, a grosser colour indicating disease. If prevention is taken at this stage then the disease would not manifest in the physical body. Sanatan Kriya details the techniques to do this. The asans that we will discuss today are called the prarambhik stihi and prepare the body of the practitioner for higher practices of yog and ensure that one exudes a healthy glowing disease free body. 

शरीर की विभिन्न प्रणालियाँ जैसे कि  मासपेशीय तंत्र, कंकाल प्रणाली, तंत्रिका तंत्र उत्सर्जन तंत्र, ये सभी आपस में तालमेल कर शरीर और उसकी कार्यव्यवस्था बना रखने हेतुं निरंतर कार्यशील रहते हैं | शरीर को रोगमुक्त रखने हेतु, ये आवश्यक हैं कि रोग को स्थूल शरीर में व्यक्त होने से पूर्व ही रोक दिया जाए| रोग सबसे पहले प्राणिक कोश में, जिसे 'औरा' के नाम से भी जाना जाता है, व्यक्त होता है| ध्यान आश्रम के दिव्यदृष्टा इस कोश के स्वरुप का वर्णन रंगों के रुप में करते हैं, जिसमें गाढ़ा रंग दिखना रोग का संकेत होता है| यदि इसी स्तर पर निवारण कर दिया जाए तो रोग स्थूल शरीर में व्यक्त होता ही नहीं है |सनातन क्रिया में इसके लिये तकनीक दी गईं हैं| इस लेख में हम जिन आसनों की चर्चा करेंगे वे प्रारंभिक स्थिति के आसन हैं , जो साधक के शरीर को योग के उच्चतम अभ्यास हेतु सक्षम बनाते हैं और आपको स्वस्थ, तेजस्वी, रोगमुक्त शरीर प्रदान करने में सहायता करते हैं|

Sit with your legs outstretched. Ensure that the back is straight and both legs and heels are joined together. Place the palms on the ground next to your hip, fingers pointing away from the body.
अपने पैर सीधे फैलाकर बैठें| अपनी पीठ सीधी रखें और अपने दोनों पैरों और एड़ियों को जोडें | अपनी हथेलियों को ज़मीन पर कूल्हों के समीप इस तरह रखें, जिसमें आपके हाथों की अंगुलियाँ आपके शरीर से विपरीत दिशा की ओर इशारा कर रहीं हो| धीरे से श्वास अंदर लें और आपके पैरों की अंगुलियों को नीचे ज़मीन की ओर खिंचें| सात गिनने तक इस स्थिति में बैठें रहे| अब श्वास को बाहर छोड़ते हुए, दोनों पैरों की अंगुलियों को विरुद्ध दिशा में मोड़ियें| यह
प्रक्रिया सात बार दोहोराएँ।


Gently inhale and push your toes towards the ground pointing downwards. Hold for a count of seven. Exhaling, bend them in the reverse direction. Repeat this seven times. Maintaining the same posture, rotate your feet in a clockwise direction inhaling in half of the rotation and exhaling in the other half. Repeat this seven times in clockwise motion followed by anticlockwise seven times. Its vital to synchronise your breath with each rotation. 
इसी स्थिति में बैठकर, आपके पैरों के पंजों का घड़ी की सूई के अनुसार पूर्णतः चक्रानुक्रम में घुमाएं, आधा चक्रानुक्रम श्वास अंदर लेते हुए करें और आधा चक्रानुक्रम श्वास बाहर छोड़ते हुए करें| यही प्रक्रिया सात बार घड़ी की सुई की दिशा अनुसार करें, फिर उसकी विपरीत दिशा में भी सात बार करें| हर चक्रानुक्रम के साथ श्वास को समक्रमिक बनाएँ रखना आवश्यक है|

Next, keeping right leg stretched, bend the left leg and place the ankle on the thigh of the stretched leg. Support the left ankle with your left hand and hold the toes of the left foot with your right hand. Rotate the left ankle seven times in clockwise and anti-clockwise direction each. Inhale in half rotation and exhale in the other half. Repeat this on the other leg.
 These seemingly simple rotations play an important role in removing the energy blockages in the various joints that are rotated. It is advisable to keep your eyes closed and maintain the internal awareness of the body part that is being rotated to ensure maximum benefits.
इसके बाद, दाहिना पैर सीधा रखें, बायां पैर मोड़िये और एड़ी जांघ पर रखें| अपनी बाईं एड़ी को बाएँ हाथ से सहारा देते हुए पकड़ें और बाएँ पैर के पंजे को दाहिने हाथ से पकडें| अब अपनी बाईं एड़ी को सातबार घड़ी की सुई की दिशा में और फिर सात बार घड़ी की सुई की विपरीत दिशा में घुमाएं| आधा चक्रानुक्रम श्वास को अंदर लेते हुए करें और बाकी का आधाचक्रानुक्रम श्वास को बाहर छोड़ते हुए करें| यही प्रक्रिया आपके दूसरे पैर से भी करें|

ये आसान प्रतीत होनेवाले चक्रानुक्रम आपके शरीर के जोड़ों में ऊर्जा के संचालन में होनेवाली  रुकावट को हटाने में अत्यंत मत्त्वपूर्ण होते हैं| अधिक लाभ के लिए इन आसनों को करते समय अपनी आँखें बंद रखें तथा अपना पूर्ण ध्यान शरीर के उस भाग पर रखें , जिसका चक्रानुक्रम किया जा रहा है|

YOGA FOR KIDNEY STONES

There are two bean shaped organs in the body, one to the left and the other to the right in the pelvic region, and their function is filtration of the fluids of the body. The residue after filtration is then expelled from the body as urine. I am referring to the kidneys. Kidneys assume greater significance in our lives, given that are body is 60-70% water. And this water needs to be regulated constantly.
The kidneys are so fine an organ that they remove all the solids from the water. Certain solids which are heavy and cannot be expelled completely, get calcified. This leads to kidney stones. When the kidney stones grow in size, they block the top of the kidney or are pushed into the urethra thereby blocking it. Early symptoms are pain. And this pain need not be limited to the lower back area, and may even be experienced in the lower chest area.  This is because when the kidneys gasp for prana, they can put pressure on any nerve in the body. Another symptom is weight gain. When kidneys …

KALKI THE EXTINGUISHER OF EVIL: A GLIMPSE OF THE FINAL INCARNATION

“Whenever and wherever there is a decline in righteousness, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of vice – at that time I descend Myself. In order to deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to re-establish the principles of dharma, I advent Myself epoch after epoch” Since the beginning, Lord Vishnu incarnated in various forms on earth from time to time. Whenever there was a disbalance in Creation, it was ensured that the avatars worked on rectifying it. The avatar was bespoke of the yuga as the yugas needed to change with time. He took birth as a Brahmin (Parshurama) to annihilate the corrupt Kshatriyas, as a prince(Rama) to slay the demon king of Lanka and as a cowherd(Krishna) who executed the cunning Kansa and steered the Pandavas to victory. Lord Vishnu is said to have ten avatars (dashavatars) in the present cycle of four yugas. Now, being the Kalyug, is the time when the tenth and the final avatar of Lord Vishnu will take birth on Earth. If we …

SHED YOUR COLONIAL MINDSET OVER COWS

The British punctured our roots, killed cows and poisoned our minds, and left behind generations of ‘brown Englishmen’, writes Yogi Ashwini Macaulay in his infamous ‘Minute’ in 1835 changed the course of how Bharat (or India as we call it now) would be perceived by its countrymen. He planned to uproot the Indian culture through English education. He advocated education for a selected class and wanted to create eminent clerks to serve the lower cadres in British administration, “Brown Englishmen”. The fact that most of us find it perfectly normal to address him, who ravaged our culture, as “Lord” Macaulay and find the idea of cow, which nourishes us, being our mother or goddess absurd, is a direct indicator of the fact that Macaulay succeeded in brainwashing us. A brainwash to the extent that no matter what we write here or whatever stats we share, the Brown Englishmen, even if they make it through the end of this article, would still not find anything wrong in killing cows or eating bee…
