According to the yogis, there are two nerve currents in the spinal column, called pingala and ida, and a hollow canal called sushumna running through the spinal cord. at the lower end of the hollow canal is what the yogis call the “lotus of the kundalini”. They describe it as triangular in form, in which, in the symbolical language of the yogis, there is a power called the kundalini, coiled up. When the kundalini awakes, it tries to force a passage through this hollow canal, and it rises step by step, as it were, layer of the mind becomes open and all the different visions and wonderful powers come to the yogi. When it reaches the brain, the yogi is perfectly detached from the body and mind; the soul finds itself free. We know that the spinal cord in composed in a peculiar manner. if we take the figure eight horizontally(∞)there is 2 part which are connected in the middle. suppose you add eight after eight, piled one on top of the other, that will represent the spinal cord. The left is the ida, the right pingala, and that hollow canal which runs through the centre of the spinal cord is the sushumna. Where the spinal cord ends in some of the lumbar vertebrae, a fine fibre issues downwards, and the canal runs up even within that fibre, only much finer. The canal is closed at the lower end, which is situated near what is called the sacral plexus, which, according to modern physiology, is triangular in form. The different plexuses that have their centres in the spinal canal can very well stand for the different “lotuses” of the yogi

Tantric japa yoga start with gayatri japa of activation of internal power first. Activation of internal power centers by gayatri japa yoga.The master of gayatri japa yoga know that words are uttered by different parts of the mouth such as, throat (larynx), tongue, teeth, lips and the root of the tougue.during speech, the nerve-fibers of the particular part of the mouth from which sound emits stretch up to different part of the body and put pressure on the corresponding glands. If particular glands of the person concerted are diseased or dysfunctional, he starts stammering while uttering the specific words. There are many large and small, visible and invisible glands in the body. Yogis know that some specific energies lie hidden in these glands, shat chakaras(six energy centre) related to the sushumana are quite well known but there are several other such glands in the body. His utterance of different words has its impact on different glands and such impact stimulates the energy of these glands. Mantra has been composed on this basis. There are twenty-four letters in gayatri mantra, which are related to twenty-four such glands located in the body, which, on getting stimulated, activate and awaken the power of righteous wisdom. By uttering gayatri mantra the sitar (some thing make musical)of the subtle(sooksham (spiritual body) )body of the sadhak(person who doing japa) stars playing, tinkling at twenty four points, creating sound waves which impact important elements of the invisible world. It is this impact, which becomes more and more pronounced and tangible through gayatri japa yoga.

The flow of sound of these twenty-four letters of the gayatri mantra is of deep significance. The experts of the science of sound know the power hidden in sound and the results, which can be achieved by its subtle vibrations. Sound is synonymous with Brahma(universal energy). It is Brahma from whom the original first creative vibration issues fort resulting in 108-time chating of OM. Just as the pendulum of a clock keeps on moving by swinging to and fro, in the same way the sound waves of OM create vibrations which regulate this creation. And this vibrations respectively flow in this current. It is further divided into branches and sub branches which are known as BEEJA_MANTRA. The letters, words and clauses of gayatri mantra have been seen by a seer vision and emanate from the unified field of creative energy, arranged in a specific and special sequence and inter-relationship. Chanted with sincere devotion, they plug the sadhaks soul into the supreme and inexhaustible fount of spiritual energy.

The vibrations of a specific sound spread in the ether and attract atoms of similar type and return to their origin within few moments, duly charged with appropriate energy which exercises curative impact in the appropriate area. This is how mantras accomplish miraculous effects. The chanting of gayatri mantra activates the network of nerves in the mouth and stimulates specific glands. No sooner do they get stimulated, a vedic symphony is created which spreads in the ether, takes a round of the entire universe, coming back to the source with its energy augmented manifold, capable of fulfilling the desired purpose. Gayatri sadhana. Thus, become a spiritual as well as a material boon for the sadhak.

Gayatri activates the twenty-four divine qualities . With their growth, varied accomplishments.(siddhis) and prosperity start manifesting in the life of the person. Most of the people think that some god or goddess is bestowing these gifts because they are unable to see and understand the working of these subtle divine energies and the transformations flowing therefrom. Once they understand that transformations are taking place as a result of their own sadhana they would realise that it is not by way of some unexpected gift from somewhere but is the result of a well organized scientific process of spiritual growth.

Tantric japa yoga starts with Gayatri mantra chanting. And the most remarkable result of gayatri japa that the eternal energy of body and mind is the basic source of the origin and functioning of the miraculous living laboratory existing in a human being.

By gayatri mantra, chanting and meditations will make happy and healthy state of the mind and body as melodious tunes produced by the divine vina . This mantra sound loses its order and become unclear in the negative states of tension, anger,sickness,etc.

Tantric japa yoga is not based on blind faith but has a solid scientific basis.

Japa means the repetition of a mantra. A mantra is a sound structure of one or more syllables which represents a particular aspect of the divine vibration. Concentrated mental repetition of a mantra produces vibrations within the individuals entire system, which are in tune with the divine vibration.

Being Sensual Is Not Only About Sex

Sensuality and how we relate to our surroundings are two of the most important factors in our daily lives.

After all, without touch there would be no feeling; without sight, we wouldn’t see beauty; without sound, there would be no music; without taste, food would hold no delight; without scent our lovemaking would not hold the enchantment we long for.

Humans need to be touched. Physical contact is important for both our mental and physical well-being. I recently read that we need 14 hugs a day to be healthy. It’s not unusual for individuals to go for long periods of time without even getting a hug from another person. When in a relationship we may take kisses and hugs for granted, but when single, we may lament the loss of touch and sensuality in our lives. So, how does a single person find the nurturing and sensual feelings of touch without going the route of one night stands and quick flings? For many people, the idea of sensuality is associated with sexuality. We think of sensual touch, sensual kisses, and sensual moments between the sheets.

At its core, however, being sensual is not about sex at all. Being sensual is about living in your senses as opposed to your mind. It means connecting to your physical body as it exists, perceives and feels in this very moment. The Way of the Peaceful Warrior speaks to this…being present…in the moment. It is a philosophy embraced by many religions.

Sensuality is taking pleasure in the world around us. It is being Present and aware of our surroundings.

You can become more sensual at any moment by becoming aware of your five senses. What are you hearing? What are touching? What are you tasting? What are you seeing? What are you smelling? Find the sensual energy in everything: your foot rolling through a step, your fingers tapping on the keyboard, your lips and tongue pronouncing words, your eyes moving from one object to another. No action is too small to ignite your senses. Move your body freely and often. Walk. Dance. Bike. Swim. Swing your arms. Stretch.

Don’t be in a hurry to move onto the next thing. Don’t rush a conversation to a close, a career to its next level or a kiss to sex.

A sensual person experiences each moment totally—and knows that a simple, complete, fully present, deep inhale can evoke as much ecstasy as anything.

Sensuality is taking pleasure in the world around us.

Who doesn’t enjoy slipping into bed with the scent and the feel of freshly laundered sheets, hung outside to dry, against our skin? Especially after a warm shower or bath in which we slathered our bodies with softly scented luxurious oils and creams? I have a few favorites, don’t you?

I love getting prepared for my love to come over. Shaving all the parts he likes smooth and leaving those he likes to be simply manicured. Smoothing oils & lotions with heady aromas on my warm skin; my hair washed & softly cascading over my shoulders.

Clean soft bedding, candles everywhere so there is no harsh light to jar our senses. Softly playing seductive music in the background from a playlist so carefully constructed. Our favorite tidbits of fruits & sweets to nibble on….our favorite beverages…bliss… sensual bliss.
