shavasan is that yogic posture practicing which one
is able to still his hyper active brain, control thought process by gaining absolute
control over one's breathing. In practice very few people breathe correctly. Most
inhale air through their mouth instead of nostrils and suck it into stomach. Air
is supposed to be inhaled into the chest to keep your body hale and hearty.
Without proper oxygen intake the whole body structure tends to malfunction. You
frequently fall ill, leading to Heart Strokes and failures. Exercising helps the
body to gain fresh oxygen into the blood stream and expel out impure waste air.
Shavasana is the highest form of yogic exercise, which helps one to promote self
to highest level of Spiritual evolution.
Did you know ... You can establish contact with the creator by establishing absolute
control over Shavasana. Mahavira
did it. Gautama Buddha learnt it though later in Life. Jesus
Christ came to India to learn it. Prophet
Mohammed practiced it while hidden in caves. Without gaining control
over breathing process through shavasana ... one cannot Realize God. It is an
importance of learning the correct rhythm of Shavasana is evident in the fact
... while trying to establish contact with the Almighty Creator you may pronounce
"OM" innumerable times, the results being always nil.
Spiritual syllable or mantra needs to be pronounced after attaining a certain
level of Spiritual upliftment. Understanding the literal meaning of a word does
no good. We have to delve deeper to learn the Cosmic Truths, the hidden meanings.
Once the meaning is clear, chanting a mantra makes it resonate all over the Cosmos
resulting in invocation of the deity it is meant for. Chanting of "OM" brings
us near to God Almighty.
Chanting of any mantra when done in shavasana pose brings multifold results. The
chanting is done not by the body but by atman the soul within. For an Atman to
work in unison with the body, it requires stillness of the body. No tension ...
Shavasana can be properly learnt from any Yogic Teacher adept in Yoga (Meditation).
Most Indian Saints are well versed in spiritual practices and yogic exercises
form a part of their daily curriculum.
One can easily locate the right guru (The Spiritual Teacher) for purpose of learning
shava asana. Shavasana is best practiced in early morning hours before getting
up from the bed or in the night while going to sleep. One can always by practicing
shavasana make his body go to deep sleep enabling atman the soul within to play
its part. During mid-day rest after meal also one can practice shavasana.
Shava asana is a pose
to be practiced whenever body is under tension. Shavasana completely releases
all tensions within the body giving the body a new vigor. One must daily practice
shavasana posture. It not only helps elevate one on Spiritual plane but also improves
the quality of Daily Life.
When I was in 8th standard, my Father found me sleeping in my room in a disheveled
posture. Though I was having a sound sleep, when I got up he insisted on teaching
me a posture in which one can have an absolutely sound sleep. (I used to have
severe head-aches, perhaps that was the reason of his wanting to teach me this
me shavasana, a form of Yogic Exercise. In this Asana, one by one all parts of
the body are to be presumed drop dead. A stage comes when complete body gets stilled.
One can distinctly hear the breathing of the self. Now it is very possible to
invoke those mighty powers whom we call deities, Man Gods and The Creator himself.
My Father when
he taught me this very special art was not aware of what gems of Yoga he was disseminating
to me. It was only later when I looked at my Father ... a person of the materialistic
World ... I realized that the full potential of this art "Shavasana" had been
utilized only by me in the whole family.
Initially when I practiced this art, I fell asleep ... a deep sleep very
invigorating and refreshing. As I lay down to sleep, I tried to keep awake and
concentrate on opening a dialogue with an imaginary God on matters of which I
wanted the solution. Many queries getting solved one by one. I felt ecstatic at
times when I got up in the morning. I gained control over my senses and mind to
a stage when I could take myself (I as an Atman, The Soul Within in its primitive
pure form) out from the body at night ... travel all over the Cosmos.
The best part I liked
doing was rotating round and round over 400KV electricity cable lines ... one
factor, which confirmed that atman the soul within can never be a slave of any
Worldly Manifestations. Even electricity was something to be enjoyed. The Mind
waves always travel at frequency higher than that of electricity. In the night
Working in Zero Gravity, pursuing fighter planes and space objects while in sub-conscious
state was becoming exhilarating day by day.
My intuition told me I was not practicing a prohibited form of Yoga. I was practicing
Yoga in its highest form. By Yoga is meant invoking pure thoughts through a Body
conditioned perfect by Yogic Exercises.
This practice of shavasana unknowingly was awakening my Kundalini. Kundalini is
that aspect of a manifested body which when awakened brings about the changes
in the physical body.
All the bliss, Ecstasy is felt owing to Kundalini awakening. The awakening of
Kundalini results in secretions within the brain leading to opening up of dormant
energy sources within the brain.
The higher we proceed on the path of Practicing "Shavasana"... More advanced are
our Spiritual gains. Shavasana can be best practiced by one who is truthful in
all acts of his Life. Apart from Truthfulness, celibacy is also required to be
practiced in right earnestness. Only then can we hope of getting the desired results.
