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.

Swar Yoga – Ultimate Science of Success from Shiva

Ultimate Science of Success from Shiva!

The Swara Yoga – Workshop for Beginners

Success sutras from the First Yogi & Tantra Master – Lord Shiva  find elaborate mention in the Tantric discipline called ‘Swar Yog‘ or Swara Vigyaan. This 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. One who attains the knowledge of Swaras is capable of creating success on all fronts of life. The one who knows the essence of Swaras attains complete knowledge of Vedas and other scriptures.”

What is Swar Yoga

Breathing is an important aspect and function of the physical body. Breath carries the most vital aspect of life that is prana. Prana is the connection between mind, body and consciousness. Most of the people are aware of the long list of benefits Pranayama & various controlled breathing process offer for one’s physical and mental well-being. For any spiritual aspirant the breath is tool and a vehicle for attaining the ultimate goal—Self Realization.

Swar Yog moves beyond all this. It offers a deeper insight into the rhythms of breath and its Tattvic quality. Swar Yog utilizes the different cycles of the Elements (tattvas) in the body for mental and physical healing igniting perfect intuition needed for successful living. According to Swar Yog, the right side of the body has solar dominance while the left side has lunar dominance. When one breathes from a particular nostril, one is capable of absorbing certain type of psychic and Tattvic energies from the outer universe. Also, depending on the nostril one is breathing through different types of energies are generated within the body. All the mental and psychic faculties are greatly affected by the nasal dominance. A seasoned Swar Yogi uses his/her persistent state of awareness to use these Tattvic cycles for the benefit of self and others.

Benefits of Practicing Swar Yog

Swar Vigyaan is the science of creating all round success in life. Our lives are the sum-total of all the choices and decisions we made till now. We could change our lives only if we knew how to choose the best among the choices available.

The Master of Swar Vigyaan and Founder of The Shakti Multiversity, Ma Shakti Devpriya says “The best capacity endowed with the practitioners of Swara is wisdom of making right choices. A Swara Yog practitioner intuitively acts on the ‘best choice’ always. Therefore his/her life is free of obstacles and is always in synchronicity with the best divine has to offer.”

Is it Easy to Learn?

One must keep in mind that Swar Yog is the highest practice in the domain of breath-sciences. Although the principles of this science had been available freely but true knowledge of Swar Vigyaan had been limited to the circles of Masters only as it requires rigorous discipline and dedication from the practitioner to achieve perfection in the subject. A SwarYogi needs to be extremely disciplined and free from all negative influences.

In a nutshell, barring few the practices of Swara Vigyaan are easy to learn but mastering them may require lifetime of efforts – Of course a living Master is mandatory who will decide how much to give you, depending on your capacity*. Swar Yoga Basic Workshop is a good beginning for anyone who is willing to explore this fantastic science.

*Note – Few Swar Vigyaan practices have always been closely guarded, primarily because they deal with very subtle energies of the body and cosmos. Such techniques allow the practitioner to take complete control of anyone’s mind and being but if done wrongly, in any manner they may not only harm the practitioner but completely derail one’s spiritual development. It is therefore advised to every practitioner that he/she should engage ONLY in the specified practices.
