Vijayawada: This Maha shivarathri, people in Vijayawada will get a rare opportunity to participate in a unique yoga called the Sushumna Kriya yoga, which focuses more on meditation and concentration of the mind than on physical exercises. It involves the taming of mind and channelling of thoughts to achieve spiritual excellence and oneness with the ‘Creator’.
The Divya Babaji Sushumna Kriya Yoga Foundation is holding a special session on Sushumna Kriya Yoga on March 4 at Shubham Kalyana Vedika in Ramavarappadu. The renowned spiritual master Aatma Anandamayi Mataji will lead this special session. She will also deliver a discourse. The yoga incorporates the legacy of the Siddhas. “It provides respite from worldly troubles and gives a tangible meaning to life. It will also help fine tune the mind and create positive thoughts,” said Pola Sruthakirthy, one of the organisers.
She said that Sushumna Kriya Yoga is a rare form of Yoga that involves the three Nadis – Ida, Pingala, and Sushumna. These Nadis get activated which in turn travel vertically through the Shatchakras (six chakras) – Mooladhara, Swadhishtana, Manipuraka, Anahata, Agna and Sahasrara. “This takes the practitioner to an elevated state of mind,” she explained.
She added that unlike other Yoga forms, this form is quite handy as it does not involve physical strain. This form of yoga was handed down through the millennia by saints and gurus.
“The science of Kriya Yoga was revived and reconstructed to meet the transformed lifestyle of modern-day man. It is the most powerful, spiritual, and scientific technique. It was imparted for the first time to a living yogi, Aatma Anandamayi Mataji on September 7, 2005,” Sruthakirthy said.
Sushumna Kriya meditation can change the mentality or the thinking pattern of a people and redirect them towards the path of spirituality. “It fulfils the spiritual purpose of man on earth giving him higher states of spiritual consciousness,” she added.
