Swara Yoga Lessons by Tantra Master Ma Shakti Devpriya ji

Question:

Shivoham! Ma,

I am noticing my swara since few days. I take a note right at the time of sunrise. And few more times in the day. I have noticed that during the sunrise, some days it is as per the tithi. but some days it is not and even if I try to change it, it does not change. During the day, i have understood that most of the times it is surya that is active. I remember you said that chandra should be active during the day and surya in the night. So what should i do to correct it. Although i try few methods to change but it does not change for a long time. And how do i ensure that the correct swara is active during sunrise.

K.P.

Shivoham!

Dear K.P.

This is almost a common query, that all the new practitioners and enthusiasts of Swar Vigyaan have, that Swara is not according to the tithi. There are few reasons for this. Although I did share in the class, about how we can predict about our coming day, paksha, month and even year by reading our Swara during sunrise. But I had also mentioned, to predict correctly, we need to achieve proper working of the Swara.

When the swara is not according to the tithi, the first thing that should be attempted is to change the swara. This can be done by any of the method I had taught during the class. As you mention, that even if you try to change the swara it does not change and you also share that most of the times it is the surya swara that is active, so let us understand what can be the underlying causes for the same.

The first point to understand here is that there is certainly some problem/issue or disease. It can be on mental level and/or physical level. So try to contemplate on the following pointers.

Health of respiratory system

First step is to understand the health of your respiratory system. It means right from the nose to the lungs. Nose is a very important organ when it comes to understanding of the swaras and so its upkeep is very much necessary. Have you ever suffered from sinusitis, or currently are you having blocked nostrils or nasal passages. Also understand if there is unusual dryness in the nostrils? Do remember to do Jal Neti every morning, it will ensure you have clear nasal passages. Applying ghee (clarified butter) in the nostrils once daily will be helpful if you experience dryness in the nose. Also be sure of any anatomical issues like nasal septum deviation etc. There can also be some swelling in the throat or nasal area. If you are suffering from any of the above issue, proper treatment should be taken.

Health of Digestive system:

Problems with digestive system actually reflect on the overall health of our body. If you study and correct your swaras daily, you will soon realize that they are first ones to tell you that there is some problem with your digestive system. Over active pingala nadi or surya swara, can mean too much heat in the body. It can be reflected as hyper acidity in the system. Too much toxin buildup in the body is also a cause for overactive surya swara.

Posture:

This is also an important but many times overlooked cause for disturbed swaras. Overactive surya swara can simply mean that nerves in the left side of your body are weak. You must have noticed yogis sitting with a straight back and maintain the graceful posture for longer period of time. It has a reason behind it, when you sit with a straight back, you actually let proper functioning of the nadis to happen. Even a little bit of bent on either sides, affect the subtle nadis and that can be easily understood by reading the swara. Do you find yourself bent mostly towards your left side. Suppose you sit for longer periods of time, which side do you bent to?

Other less known Factors

If you are into any spiritual practice, especially mantras.. notice which mantras you are chanting because certain mantras (the most potent of those are of Agni, Surya, Narsimha and Hayagreeva) tend to increase fire-activity in the body thus disrupt the swara cycle.

Tattvic imbalance is another factor which come in the way of restoring normal swara cycle. In our lineage for the uninitiated ones we suggest Panch-Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya for this issue.

Nadi-Shuddhi is not just desirable but mandatory for achieving perfection in Swara Yoga discipline. Anyone who wishes to achieve greater success in Swara Vigyaan must conduct oneself through the Nadi-Shodhan practice on daily basis because it is a Complete Wellness Programme in itself and removes all diseases from body.

Weight shifting is general phenomenon that impacts swara cycle. Notice which leg do you tend to put your weight on, when standing for long time? Which side of the body do you use more?  As you will answer these questions you will find insight into functioning of your swaras.

Further any infection, pain or even dental filling in your left jaw can trigger surya swara dominance.

Once you are able to understand the underlying cause, for one swara dominance and rectify it, the functioning of the swara according to the tithi during sunrise will also start happening.

Finally, I would add a word of caution here. We tend to think about our bodies like machines, and feel that just tightening some screws here and there is going to heal it. You should understand that your body is a play of subtle energies and your lifestyle, emotions, situations has caused wear and tear to your body over many years, so it will take time in bringing harmony and balance in it.

If you do not take care of these minute things it may not be possible to bring perfect balance. If you continue having erratic lifestyle (includes sleep cycles, food quality and timings, exercise, pranayama and of course stress) there is less hope.  So minimize the damage you do to your body and experience the wonderful support of swaras in your life mentally, physically and spiritually.

5-Day Swara Yoga Retreat : by Ma Shakti

THE 5-DAY SWARA YOGA RETREAT

 5-DAY   RESIDENTIAL  PROGRAMME    FOR       SWARA-YOGA  LEARNERS  BY  MA  SHAKTI   The   Ultimate  Secrets   of    Swara – Vigyaan

Swara-Yoga is an ultimate practical science in the Tantric lineages for achieving greater success & siddhis in material life. What more can be said about it. It is said in the scriptures that “Swaras are the essence of ‘atman or consciousness’ itself. The one who possesses the knowledge of Swaras is capable of creating success, attain great health, predict future events and even know about one’s destiny beyond the Golden Gate of Death.

 

With Swara Yoga Everyday is a ‘Present’ –

The Swar Vigyaan is a complete science of success working on the principles of aligning individual actions with the cosmic cycles of ‘Energy Principle’. Human Life on planet Earth is not an isolated event. The whole cosmic arrangement supports life on it. The sun, the moon and the 5-Great Elements regulate the activities on mental, psychical and spiritual levels. A seasoned Swar-Yoga practitioner is capable of identifying the most productive energy cycles and knows how to use them for benefit of others and self. The true SwarYogi is one who can turn any moment to an auspicious moment, any endeavour to a success,  mend relationships and even warn about the probable fallouts. With this unparallel intuitive knowledge which comes through persistent practice the Swara practitioner turns everyday to ‘the rewarding gift’ of cosmos.

Few things everyone should understand that Swara-Yoga is a science of breath and has nothing to do with the religion. Not a single mantra or deity salutation is to be done during the practices. The practices can be learnt by anyone who is willing to experiment with one’s body and breath. Most people feel this science to be an open source due to availability of books on the subject but that is not true. The knowledge presented in the every Tantra book has always been encrypted and Swara-Vigyaan is no exception.  All ancient systems were presented to able and dedicated disciples in Guru-Disciple system (the great Guru-Shishya parampara). With all the experience at my command and great humility I say that  without my Guru I would have not succeeded in it. There are various secret ‘Keys’ that are revealed to students only by able teachers upon seeing their capabilities. Without understanding those keys the true practical  knowledge of Swara Vigyaan can never be gained. Also you evolve in your practices as you continue your discipline with SwayYog. Therefore what you learn in these 5-days you must be ready to apply it because Swara Yoga is a lifelong learning. ” says Ma Shakti Devpriya.

Contents of 5-Day Swara-Yoga Retreat

Swar Yoga 5-day retreat is a residential program by Ma Shakti that takes the participants on a magical adventure with their body-breath rhythms in the lap of mother nature. You shall begin here from ground zero to reach the zenith – in just 5 days!

This retreat is unique in a sense as it trains the learner in all aspects of Swara Vigyaan. It begins with covering all the topics of Swara Yoga basic workshop. You are given many secret tips that will be useful in your daily life and those advanced ‘keys’ which are capable of elevating you to the stature of an accomplished ‘Swara Yogi’.

The cursors to the contents of programme are as below –

Swara Yoga Retreat – Day 1

One the first morning of your retreat the day starts with mild Yoga practices. There are two sessions of classroom teachings scheduled during the day. The first session happens just after breakfast and the second session is taken later in the afternoon. The evenings will be an opportunity for you to experience and immerse your being in the unconditional love of maiden nature. Unforgettable!

Swara Yoga Retreat – Day 2

The day shall begin with learning Yogasanas and Neti practices. The first class-room session on Swar Vigyaan with Ma Shakti will be happening after the breakfast.

Your second day shall reveal many secrets about Swar Vigyaan practices over the two classroom sessions. The second classroom session will be conducted after lunch and karma-yoga session. As a participant in the retreat you shall be assigned some service work that provides an opportunity for karmic cleansing. The day shall end in star gazing for 1 hour.

Swara Yoga Retreat – Day 3

A day full of experiential learning. Swara Yoga is more practice oriented than any other stream. When you are trying to recognize the 5-Tattvas in your being it becomes really important for you to understand what is the best suited method for your personality type. You should be able to recognize rhythm and beauty of Tattvic currents and that doesn’t come without opening  to them.

This day shall deliver all the good experiences of morning and night light every other day but the experiences with Tattva Dharana will be extremely profound. This process once you know and experience becomes your guide for choosing the best way to connect and recognize the Tattvic energy in your being.

 Swara Yoga Retreat – Day  4

Learning Swara-Yoga is one thing but what matters the most is its continuous practice and application. Many participants think this science to be a subject of intellect and memory but contrary to that Swar Vigyaan is a practice work. The classrooms and even practical sessions are there just to introduce you to the techniques, make you recognize different patterns, train you in identifying tattvas and many more things but real fun is in its application.

There’s hardly any activity of the day which is not connected with the swaras. Right from the day you get up to the time you go to the bed your success and failures are governed by how much you were able to pay attention to swaras and what measures did you take to orient/plan/execute your activities according to the best suited patterns.

Swara Vigyaan helps you in planning your day, estimate the outcome of an effort, predict the success of an endeavour, improve the quality of your interactions with others, help you resolve your conflicts effortlessly, help you decide your projects, improve your intuitive muscle, give you powers to communicate with others just using your mind, deepens your meditations, accelerate your spiritual growth and award you with the highest – Liberation from cycle of birth and death if you choose that to be. All the above and even much more is there to accomplish and master but remember that comes with applying Swara-Principles in life diligently and consistently. Correctly it has been stated ‘Practice makes the man perfect.”

Day four of your stay will be more practice and experience oriented. You will learn various mudras and take up practices pertaining to Vayu and Akasha Tattva as well. The day will be populated with variety of activities to keep you in high spirits and best of your moods.

 Swara Yoga Retreat – Day 5

The retreat’s last day is refreshingly loaded with wisdom and path forward. Acharya Agyaatadarshan Anand Nath ji speaks about Swara’s connection and reference in spiritual practices.  He shall also guide you to many practicals & amazing swara-vigyaan applications.

The centre of attraction for all of you will be revelation of the secret practice of ‘Laghu Chhaya-Purush Upasana’ by Ma Shakti Devpriya ji. This particular practice has also been taught in its elaborate form in the Islamic Tantra traditions in another name (it is called ilm-e-hamzaad there). This is for those courageous and fearless students who wish to amaze themselves with their own super-human capabilities.

The day generally ends with a musically uplifting evening. Local artists showcase their talent to thrill and sway the group. We plan a visit to an Energetic place like temple, lake, mount or forest as well.

Important scribbles

One thing that a learner should keep in mind is that this residential programme mark the beginning of a New phase in your life. From hereon things will not remain the same for you, the only condition being the learner should continue with the practices and conduct his/her life according to learnt principles of Swara Vigyaan.

Second important point is that by application of the practical tips and secrets of the Swara system that are offered by Ma Shakti ji in this 5-day residential programme you ensure your growth in the Swara Yoga Practices.
