Detailed discussions and scientific explanations are provided on subjects such as 'Who Am I?', Imprints of actions and their purification, Karma Yoga, Relationship between Man and Society, Benefits of Blessings, Greatness of Women, Cause and Effect System, Philosophy of Magnetism, Evolution of Universe, and Living Beings.

Meditation Practices include meditation on Chakras, Five Senses, Five Great Elements, Universal Energy Field, and the Absolute Space.

Introspection includes
  • • Practices of self-analysis designed to take stock of positive and negative characteristics in our personality.
  • • Eliminate the unwanted and incompatible aspects of one’s character.
  • • Strengthen the habits of good thought, word and deed and discerning and rejecting the habits which are unwanted.
The five techniques of introspection are:
  1. 1. Analysis of Thoughts.
  2. 2. Streamlining of Desires.
  3. 3. Neutralization of Anger.
  4. 4. Eradication of Worries.
  5. 5. Realization of Self.

  • • Develop values such as Integrity, Equanimity, Love, Compassion, Strength of Character and Courage.

Silence Programme:

There is a unique programme in which we maintain Silence in a Retreat. Yogiraj Vethathiri Says that when one is Silent, God talks to him.

When one sits in a calm place and just keeps quiet, he can observe the numerous thoughts that come into one's mind. Where do these thoughts come from? The thoughts are nothing but the expression of the mind. Mind's frequency is but the frequency of the Life Energy Particles. The Mind records whatever we do at our genetic center and when we are quiet replays it for us. Our Mind shows that we have all these imprints inside ourselves and keeps showing us these imprints when we get into that state of mind again.

So when we are quiet and silent, when others do not disturb us, we are doing meditation and conserving our Life Force. But our purpose should be during this time to concentrate on the Inner Self, and treasure what we get due to this contact and live by them.

Brahmagnana and Teacher Training:

After proper training in the above mentioned courses and meditative practices, the qualified personnel are welcome to attend the above course. The aspirant gets knowledge of the Brahman (Absolute) and trained as a teacher to be service to the Society.

Simplified Kundalini Yoga

Simplified Kundalini Yoga meditation practice:

A systematic training of mind to bring about tranquility, increased sense of awareness, clarity and strengthening of mind.

During the waking state, human mind works at 14-40 cycles/second (cps). At these frequencies the mind is said to be working at beta level. When mind is disturbed by the emotional moods of greed, anger, miserliness, immoral sexual passion, jealousy, vengeance, etc., the mental frequency increases. Decisions taken and actions done at higher frequencies cause pains and miseries to self and others. The lower frequencies are generally reached when one is sleeping. The alpha level of 8-13 cps during dream state, the theta level of 4-7 cps during deep sleep and 1-3 cps during coma state i.e. delta level. In these states, though the mind is at lower frequencies it does not reap the benefit because it is not aware.

During different levels of meditation the mind goes to alpha, theta and delta levels. When these levels are reached and the mind is wide awake, there is tremendous effect on mind.

Usually our mind is directed by senses and we act emotionally. So, we get into problems. By sincere practice of this meditation, the senses are controlled by mind and we do our actions with constant awareness of cause and effect system.

Agna Meditation

Normally the life energy is functioning at 'Mooladhar Chakra', the physical centre of our body, located at the lower end of our spinal column. Under this condition, mind works at an emotional level and is unable to come out of unwanted habits. A trained master initiates the student into meditation practice by changing the working centre to 'Agna Chakra', the mid-point between the eye brows and focusing the mind on life energy at that point, the mind is given a new and positive direction which brings about reduction in mental frequency from Beta to Alpha level making the mind calm, providing control over senses and developing the power of concentration.

Shanthi Yoga

Generally for any SKY practitioner, after a few days of the initial practice, energy increases in the upper centers may be felt excessively. At this time Shanthi Yoga will be taught in order to balance the excessive flow of energy in the head.

Doubt Dispelled ABOUT SHANTHI YOGA Maharish
Question : What is the importance of Shanthi Yoga?
Answer : physical well being. Here one should just observe the life-force at Mooladhara. The practice of 'Aswani Mudhra', which is contraction and release of anus, ten to twenty times, will be helpful in getting successful Shanthi Yoga Meditation. One should do concluding blessings from Mooladhara only and need not go up to the Agna Chakra.

Thuriya Meditation

After one month, the aspirant is taught Thuriya Yoga. The Master by his graceful sight passes the Divine Yogic Power through his eyes into the eyes of the aspirant. Then the Kundalini Shakthi is lifted from Agna Chakra to Thuriya (also called Sahasradara) the crown of the head, giving a very pleasant sensation. In addition to being a blissful sensation, Thuriya meditation will increase spiritual awareness & understanding, if practiced regularly along with Introspection.

In Thuriya meditation or meditation at Crown Chakra, the dormant brain cells are activated resulting in sharpness of intellect, increase of memory and development of will power. Many other meditation practices are given at higher level courses.

Thuriatheetha Yoga

By the thought-force of the Master the aspirant is taken to the Thuriatheetha State. Here the soul merges into the Absolute State, the Almighty. This is also called Jeeva-Brahma Aikyam meditation. This is a psychic practice to attain ‘Samadhi’ and leads to God-Realisation.

Thuriatheetha meditation, the third stage in SKY, merge your consciousness with Obsolete Universal Being. The birth cycle will come to the end and you will be completely liberated to reach the Eternal Source. Here, the mind shrinks itself from the mind's four dimensions (volume, force, time and distance), approaching towards Absolute State. It is a state of restful awareness. It is the process of elevating the consciousness towards perfection. When the mind reaches the absolute state by the Thuriatheetha meditation, that itself is Samadhi. When the mind is able to become one the Primordial state of its Own Self, that is realisation of Self and realisation of God.

Benefits:

  • 1. Reduces the mental frequency.
  • 2. Enhances awareness.
  • 3. Improves intellectual sharpness and understanding.
  • 4. Increases the will power and concentration.

When to meditate?

There is no particular time and specific direction for doing meditation. Since it is the process of merging the soul with the Absolute, it can be practiced daily at any time and direction. Just as the house wives clean daily the utilized vessels in the kitchen for next day's use, the same process is to be followed in the case of mind too. The mind should be trained to merge with its source daily, so as to purify the soul.

At the beginning when we meditate for ten minutes, even if the mind is stable at least for half a minute, that itself is a great gain for us. Putting more efforts would give better result. The longer the meditation, the stronger becomes our thought, (i.e.), our conscious mind.

Conclusion:

This Kundalini Yoga has been systematized and simplified to suit the modern man. One's personality is the sum total of all his karmas, these karmas should be purified once for all. Thus, we come to a clear concept that peace of mind, intellectual sharpness, duty consciousness are the simultaneous achievements through this SKY system. After surrendering body and consciousness to God and Society, one attains peace, which is Called "Perinbam" in Tamil which means Greatest pleasure (i.e.) ecstasy. This happiness and peace will thus be continuous and will not be interrupted by any event. Let all of us try to achieve this valuable treasure which is within us.

When man realize the Greatness of his own Self, he reaches the highest peak of consciousness. He is then able to respect the needs and ambitions of others. Such perfection alone will secure .and maintain peace within Self, between individuals and between Nations. Only then all the problems will be solved.

The SKY guides and leads you to attain Spiritual perfection and reach the goal of Self-Realization. 'Happiness is never perfect unless it is shared'. So, let us all share this everlasting happiness with one another and may all of us enjoy the Eternal Bliss.
