2.44— svadhyayad ishtadevatasanprayogah
Self-study leads towards the realisation of God or communion with one's desired deity.
The word "ishta" means desired or preferred and "devata" means a deity. Ishta Devata thus refers to one’s deity of choice. The ishta devata deity can be visualized when a mantra to the deity is chanted with total devotion and ardor. The necessity to visualise God as an object, or an ishta devata, arises on account of the difficulty of the mind in transcending space and time ( mere Sanskrit language knowing halfwit indophiles wont understand quantum physics inherent in Vedas) . Halfwits cannot understand this concept. In Hinduism we are given a free choice on what we want to focus our mind on . We are not armtwisted to focus our mind on a man bleeding to death on a cross. Muslims make fun of Hindus as being idol worshippers. What do they know ? Allah is a straight lift from brahmAn. Ishta Devta can be find out from your horoscope alone. Though in modern times ishtadevata is your free choice.The ishta devata becomes, for our purposes, a conceptual ideal that we have placed before us, on which we foist all the greatest qualities of God. We consider the ishta devata as an all-pervading essence concretised in one form. Shallow minded people who do not understand the essense of meditation , will never understand why Hindus worhsip idols, though our god is brahmAn ( the morphogenetic consciousness field ) which cannot be picked up by the 5 senses . Kula Devata is the God/Goddess worshipped by the family, by tradition. This Kula Devata is the God to whom the family would do prayer before any auspicious occasion is done at home: like marriage, upanayan sanskar etc. Kula Devata cannot be substituted by Ishta Devata as Ishta Devata can be specific to each person, even in a family. Ishta Devata is the personal Deity who will guide the soul to its real home- Moksha. You need to necessarily search through your aged relatives to find the Kula Devata.An ishta devata is our own God, whom we worship and adore. Though theoretically it is conceded that God is everywhere, the mind cannot conceive this everywhereness. Even when we agree that God is everywhere, the idea of God being everywhere will be a kind of externalisation of form. Even if we think of God as the universal Virat Himself, when we think of the Virat, He will appear to be an object which we are cognising. Remembering the deity and internally building a relationship with (or through) them is considered essential to the yogic practise. Within the Advaita schools it is held that the human mind needs a concrete form to understand the divine that ultimately can never be defined. Just as one can understand the abstract concept of a color only after one has seen a concrete form, one can only realize the deity through a form of murti. The advaita god of brahmAn cannot be picked up by the 5 human senses.The immoral white invader used this Ishta devata concept to drive wedges. They made devotees of Vishnu and Shiva fight and abuse each other using the FAKE and backdated mutts. Hindus must know that the TRINITY works in tandem and in harmony. Typically a practitioner worships their Ishta-Deva through the form of a murti. This worship may involve offering items while in a grateful disposition to their chosen divinity such as incense or flowers, reciting mantras, singing their names and offering prayers. Mantra sadhana done with faith and intensity leads to ishta devata samprayogah, which means that the ishta devata appears before the sadhaka in a human form, a sound vibration or a light.Svadhyaya has been mentioned twice in the sutras, first in sutra 2.1 as part of Kriya Yoga and later on as one of the five niyamas. Since the practice of Svadhyaya brings one face to face with their deity of choice, it means that the practicing yogi is expected to have an ishta-devata. Though consciousness survives within the body, it needs to be knocked by the practice of yoga asana and pranayama, wherein the intelligence acts as a bridge to connect awareness of the body with the core and vice versa. This connecting intelligence alone brings harmony of body, mind and soul, and intimacy with the Supreme Soul (Istadevata). Traditionally, svadhyaya has been explained as the study of the sacred scriptures and recitation mantra, through which the sadhaka earns a vision of his tutelary or chosen divinity, who meets each of his wants. Svadhyaya is the study of scriptures and also practicing our individual sadhana (spiritual pursuit) that we have been initiated into. Through this practice we can get a "darshan" or a vision of our own deity of choice. Every mantra that we chant is usually identified with a deity and through intense sadhana, the deity may appear in human form or in the form of light or a sound. Svadhyaya literally means self-study but also refers to study of sacred texts. In Vedic times, it involved recitation of vedic hymns until memorized. OM has been referred to as the representative sound for Ishvara (sutra 1.27), it is apparent that Patanajli is referring to Ishvara and its manifest forms as ishta devatas. When we surrender to God, we essentially become free of material possessions and thus free of any worries. This leads us to an attitude of detachment which is a requirement for the state of Samadhi. Samadhi means tranquility of mind which is achieved when we dedicate everything to God and are free of attachments.Of all the attainments mentioned in the sutras which result from practicing the various yamas and niyamas, it is only through the practice of Ishvara-pranidhana that samadhi, the goal of yoga, can be attained. As we recall, in sutra 2.1, Ishvara-pranidhana is mentioned as a part of Kriya Yoga, and now again it is mentioned as one of the five niyamas. Even though in chapter 1 on Samadhi Pada, Ishvara-pranidhana was mentioned as one of the options to attain peace of mind. However, in chapter 2, Patanjali makes it a requirement if we want to follow the eight limbs of yoga. The ultimate goal of yoga is realization of atman (individual soul) as a part of brahmAn, the mother field. In the Bhagavad Gita, Arjuna asks Krishna as to which of two paths is superior – the path of knowledge based on the imperishable, unmanifest or the path of devotion (shloka 12.1). Krishna states that even though one can attain liberation using the former path, but that path is difficult to follow. He adds the one following the path of devotion is the best among the yogis.Even though Patanjali’s main focus is calming the mind and realization of brahmAn, he has given ample evidence of the use of bhakti (devotion) as a means to that attainment.
Svadhyayam is the exercise of the self, by the self, and for the self as in exercises at the end of chapters in technical textbooks. Aspects of the phenomenal universe as apprehended are exercised through the model of the cognitive process. The three fundamental questions are 1) how do I happen to be aware of this now?, 2) why does it appear to me in this way instead of another way?, and 3) what about me that latches on to this particular manifestation? The phenomenal universe is surrendered to Ishvara who will present the impression of the undifferentiated subject to a clear mind. When one experiences who the subject is one is distanced from the body which feels pain and suffering.The following five points emerge regarding the meaning, sadhana and outcome of swadhyaya:-- Study of scriptures, Study of one’s own self, Mantra japa, Some form of meditation practice, Attainment of the ishta devata..The study of sacred scriptures such as Bhagavad Gita constitute a great aid to sadhana. A broad intellectual background is necessary for achieving success in any sphere of scientific endeavour. Since yoga is a science par excellence, this is also true of yoga. This part of swadhyaya, however, is only the first step. Constant introspection on the fundamental truths and deeper problems that have been studied is more important. This constant reflection gradually and imperceptibly begins to take the form of meditation in the ordinary sense of the term, i.e. the mind becomes increasingly engrossed in the object of the search. Thus it slowly becomes ready to receive real knowledge from within and the aspirant begins to obtain a deeper insight into the problems of yogic life. The scriptures are meant not only for rational, intellectual, logical understanding. The value of their teaching lies in being able to apply what we have understood in everyday life. Our study will have no benefit if we do not make an effort to live up to the teachings. Practical application of material suitable for our temperament and relevant to our mode of life is necessary if we wish to derive any permanent, substantial benefit from our study. Studying the scriptures does not mean just scanning the pages, but trying to understand every word, studying with heart. The more often we read, the more we understand. We see things in a new light. That is the greatness of the holy scriptures. We gradually rise upwards. This implies elevation of the mind and expansion of its horizon, which further implies a better understanding of everything within and around. We are attuned to the authors who were realized souls, great saints, seers and gurus who trod the path of truth, and encountered and removed difficulties. Thus they give us hope and vigour. Daily reading is one of the most powerful methods of keeping the mind fully alive to one’s ideal. A host of powerful, positive ideas rushes to the mind and the mental powers are at once sharpened. The reader is inspired and uplifted, and enabled to conquer the lower forces in everyday life. Therefore, a sadhaka should not give up swadhyaya, even for a single day. By reading inspiring sentences over and over again, they become indelibly engraved in the heart and a part of one’s inner nature. Such repetition gives strength and pushes an idea into the innermost chambers of the heart and mind. Then the idea percolates into the subconscious mind. As a result, the negative thoughts lurking there are gradually annihilated. Spiritual books like Bhagawad Gita act as consoling companions under all vexing circumstances, ideal teachers in all difficulties, as a guiding light in the nights of nascence and folly, as a panacea for evils and as shapers of destiny.Witnessing yourself and studying one’s own personality is another equally valid and widely accepted view of swadhyaya. This implies the ability to read one’s life like a book, to be aware of each and every page. In other words, it is the analysis of our own personality, being aware of our individual qualities, strengths and weaknesses, in order to know what and who we are. Introspection and self analysis is useful only if translated into action. A yogi will not cheat himself during self analysis. He can fail himself. Self reflection for a yogi is a humbling process. Always use adversity to introspect. These are god given opportunities to drive real change. The heart and mind of a person can be understood by knowing what he aspires to be- not what he is or what he was. There is only one thing in this cosmos which you can be cock sure is bringing change to yourself with self discipline. The other is death. Everything which irritates us about others can lead to an understanding of ourselves. Your current comfort zone and safe boundaries were once unknown frontiers. You can take off your clothes and show yourself to a whore. This is not the real opening up. Rather opening up is about revealing your soul ( dreams, thoughts, fears etc )— this is the true meaning of being naked. Swadhyaya is a process of witnessing our own consciousness. Swadhyaya implies continually watching our actions and reactions in different situations, circumstances and events with more awareness. We should try to know the reasons for our happiness and sorrow, anger, greed and attachment. As a result, we will gradually find out how our mind works and will become more aware of the things that disturb our mind. With an understanding of our weaknesses in particular, we can chart out a multi-faceted program to weed them out, and thus prepare the ground for our gradual upliftment. Thus this type of self-analysis is of great value in our life.Mantra repetition is a swadhyaya because it helps to explore the inner recesses of consciousness. Such a sadhana harmonizes the lower vehicles of consciousness, makes them sensitive to the subtle vibrations, and ultimately brings about a partial fusion of the lower and higher consciousness. Each mantra has a deity, or a name and form. Every Suryanamaskara asana pose has its own mantra. Mananat trayate iti mantrah is the definition of mantra. It means that as a result of regular and intensive mantra sadhana, the distractions, deviations, fluctuations, turbulence and disturbances of the mind slowly cease. The mind is relatively harmonized, calm and quiet. Such a mind is capable of focusing, looking within, and communing with the inner nature. Another relevant view of swadhyaya relates to meditation experiences. Accordingly, if an aspirant sees visions in meditation, he should let them come. They should not be suppressed as they will tell the aspirant a lot about the things that are embedded in the subconscious mind: memories, deep-rooted problems, etc. Many may be causing persistent problems without the aspirant’s knowledge. By conscious observation, the aspirant may easily face them and get rid of them. In the context of meditation, swadhyaya also means closing the eyes and observing one’s own self, as is done in antar mouna practice. This gives rise to a faculty by which one is able to focus deeply on the god or goddess of one’s choice. Meditation, as understood in the usual sense of the term, may also be regarded as swadhyaya. When we meditate on a mantra, an image or a thought, an abstract form or the formless, this is swadhyaya. This type of meditation deepens our understanding and brings us closer to our nature. Self-analysis is a great tool of jnana yoga. It can be concluded that if these approaches and techniques are practised with faith, sincerity and regularity, and under the right guidance, they will lead to mental peace, emotional harmony and bring the aspirant closer to the inner nature. Ishta devata darshan, or experience of the self, will not remain too distant a goal. Swadhyaya is the practice of self-study and self-analysis. Sva is interpreted as ‘self’ and adhyaya means ‘investigation or inquiry’. Yogis, we are encouraged to self-inquire daily through practices such asana, pranayama and meditation. Traditionally, swadhyaya is attributed to the study of sacred texts. According to Patanjali, in order to attain a greater understanding of one’s true being, the study of scriptures is important. The scriptures are used to assist one in engaging in life spiritually through self-inquiry.We can often go through life without looking deeply within ourselves, our values, actions and the impact we have on others by our thoughts, words and actions. The yogi is encouraged to engage in self-reflection by analysing the impact they have on others. You may think you come to yoga to build fitness and build strength and flexibility; which of course is true; however, through these practices we are engaging in the act of swadhyaya. We flow through postures using breath and movement, building concentration… we scan the body, we bring our awareness to our breath, we still the mind…all practices of self-reflection. By doing this, we get to know ourselves more honestly and see ourselves for what we are, not who we think we are. Svadhyaya inspires and elevates the mind to high spiritual altitude. It clears doubts. It weeds out unholy ideas. It cuts new spiritual grooves for the mind to move on. It reduces wandering of the mind or Vikshepa. It helps concentration. It forms a kind of lower Savikalpa Samadhi. It serves pasture for the mind to graze upon. When you study the sacred books, you are in tune with the authors who are realised souls. You draw inspiration and become ecstatic. Svadhyaya clears doubts. It strengthens the flickering faith, it induces aspiration or strong yearning for liberation. It fills the mind with Sattva or purity; it inspires and elevates the mind. It helps concentration and meditation. It cuts new Sattvic grooves and makes the mind run in these new grooves. To translate the precepts contained in the books of the sages and saints into action is to have your afflicted body soothed, to have your bruised soul healed, and to save yourself from all kinds of ills of life which are due to ignorance. Spiritual books act as consoling companions under all vexing circumstances, as ideal teachers in all difficulties, as guiding lights in the nights of nescience and folly, as panacea for evils and as shapers of destiny. Acquire wisdom by digesting the books of sages and saints, philosophers and mystics. By wisdom, master the secrets of all sciences, know the exact nature of things, tune your localized being or individualised personality with the workings of the divine nature of the Laws of Truth. Wisdom is the key to the plenitude of power and joy. Wisdom annuls countless sufferings, innumerable sins, cuts the root of ignorance, and confers upon you peaceful harmony and absolute perfection
Someone asked me about mind and space time.
The mathematical space-time model that joins space and time into a single idea called a continuum was written in Vedanta 7000 years ago.
German Jew Albert Einstein lifted from it and made himself famous. Wherever an important quantity of matter exists, it bends the geometry of spacetime.
THIEF Einstein wrote that space and time are relative -- an object in motion actually experiences time at a slower rate than one at rest.
This is a direct lift from a Vimana travel story of King Kakudmi and his daughter Revati.
Let me quote Wikipedia-
QUOTE: Kakudmi was able to take his daughter Revati with him and travel to Brahma-loka (the plane of existence where Brahma, the Creator, resides) and to speak with Brahma at will.
Meeting with Brahma
Kakudmi's daughter Revati was so beautiful and so accomplished that when she reached a marriageable age, Kakudmi, thinking no one upon earth was worthy of her, went to the Creator himself, Lord Brahma, to seek his advice about a suitable husband for his daughter.
When they arrived, Brahma was listening to a musical performance by the Gandharvas, so they waited patiently until the performance was finished. Then, Kakudmi bowed humbly, made his request and presented his shortlist of candidates. Brahma laughed loudly, and explained that time runs differently on different planes of existence, and that during the short time they had waited in Brahma-loka to see him, 27 catur-yugas (a cycle of four yugas, totalling 108 yugas, or Ages of Man) had passed on earth.
Brahma said to Kakudmi, "O King, all those whom you may have decided within the core of your heart to accept as your son-in-law have died in the course of time. Twenty-seven catur-yugas have already passed. Those upon whom you may have already decided are now gone, and so are their sons, grandsons and other descendants. You cannot even hear about their names. You must therefore bestow this virgin gem (i.e. Revati) upon some other husband, for you are now alone, and your friends, your ministers, servants, wives, kinsmen, armies, and treasures, have long since been swept away by the hand of time."
King Kakudmi was overcome with astonishment and alarm at hearing this news. However, Brahma comforted him, and added that Vishnu, the preserver, was currently incarnate on earth in the forms of Krishna and Balarama, and he recommended Balarama as a worthy husband for Revati.
Kakudmi and Revati then returned to earth which they regarded as having left only just a short while ago. They were shocked by the changes that had taken place. Not only had the landscape and environment changed, but over the intervening 27 chatur-yugas, in the cycles of human spiritual and cultural evolution, mankind was at a lower level of development than in their own time (see Ages of Man). The Bhagavata Purana describes that they found the race of men had become "dwindled in stature, reduced in vigour, and enfeebled in intellect."
Daughter and father found Balarama and proposed the marriage which was accepted. The marriage was then duly celebrated. UNQUOTE
Wherever an important quantity of matter exists, it bends the geometry of spacetime. This results in a curved shape of space-time that can be understood as gravity. In classical mechanics, the use of spacetime is optional, as time is independent of mechanical motion in the three dimensions of Euclidean space.
When a body is moving at speeds close to the speed of light (relativistic speeds), time cannot be separated from the three dimensions of space as time then depends on how close to the speed of light the object is moving.
The mind of a liberated jivan mukt can transcend space time. He has extended his consciousness into the infinite.
Ordinary folks like you and me can do it only during REM sleep. At about 70 to 90 minutes into your sleep cycle, you enter REM sleep. You usually have three to five REM episodes per night. Your eyes jerk rapidly in various directions under your eyelids, thus the name Rapid Eye Movement (REM) Sleep, where most muscles are paralyzed with occasional twitches. This level is also referred to as paradoxical sleep because the sleeper, although exhibiting Beta EEG waves similar to a waking state, is harder to arouse than at any other sleep stage. Vital signs indicate arousal and oxygen consumption by the brain is higher than when the sleeper is awake. There is shallow rapid breathing. REM stage has increased heart rate, raised blood pressure, erection in males, and the body does not regulate its temperature. Most of the vivid dreams occur during REM sleep, once awaken at this stage a person can remember the dream. Adults spend 20% in REM. Older adults spend progressively less time in REM sleep. People are more likely to remember the dream if they are awakened during the REM phase. Males have an erection and females have enlarged clitoris during REM sleep. However this is NOT because of thoughts of sex, sorry. No matter what a dream is about, REM sleep will cause an erection in a man who is not impotent. Even newborn boys have a boner during REM sleep! The reason why men sometimes wake up with a hop is simply because they were having a dream when they woke up. In females, nocturnal clitoral tumescence or NCT is accompanied by vaginal blood flow and transudation ( lubrication ). Twice the amount of blood flows to your brain during REM than when you are conscious. Unless a dream is particularly vivid and if one wakes during or immediately after it, the content of the dream is not remembered, unless you write it down immediately within a few seconds . Primarily REM is the brain's way of ensuring that the consciousness can be “booted up”, in the absence of an external trigger. In the absence of external stimulus, the brain might stay in deep sleep coma continuously until dehydration causes death. Humans cannot go into hibernation.Non REM sleep restores our body physiologically , as when the body is at reast more cell division and repair happens..REM sleep restores us mentally. REM sleep thus plays a huge role in learning and memory. During REM sleep, your brain consolidates and processes the information you’ve learned during the day. REM has an UNLEARNING and memory-consolidating function . Some of these memories taken in by our senses may be rejected by the mind as useless, while others may be seen as valuable and retained.There is information exchange from the conscious left lobe ( for right handers ) to be sub conscious right lobe. Learned skills consolidate in the brain during the REM sleep. This is why after a brain storming session, the thoughts must be left to incubate till an REM sleep. Major decisions are kept pending till then. REM has been shown to have links to memory consolidation and to learning. Adults who are deprived of REM sleep have trouble remembering and learning new things. REM sleep stimulates the brain regions used in learning. People taught a skill and then deprived of non-REM sleep could recall what they had learned after sleeping, while people deprived of REM sleep could not. People participating in an intensive language learning course experienced an increase of REM. This indicates that the brain requires more REM sleep in order to assimilate the new information. REM sleep provided endogenous stimulation to prevent the brain from being shut down too long. REM sleep also acts as an escape valve for letting off the “psychic steam” that accumulates from emotional stresses during the day. During REM sleep, the body’s inner temperature is no longer well regulated and tends to shift toward the temperature of its surroundings, just as in reptiles. Astronauts take a Schumann field generator with them to produce 7.83 Hertz ( which is also the frequency of the earth and Hindu king mantra OM ) , to get proper REM sleep. This Schumann generator can generate full strength Schumann resonance which is in harmony with the 7 chakras of the human body. Without this resonance, the top 3 chakras in your body are rendered ineffective. HAARP can deprive you of your REM sleep.
Time is a pool out of which we can pull up the past, the present and the future; and time, mind and consciousness are synonymous. If past , present, and future are happening simultaneously within us at all times, this means that by examining our past lives, we should be able to see what our futures hold. But in truth, the future is not fixed. This is because through exercising our free will, or our ability to make choices, we have the capacity to re-create our renegotiate our future. The concepts of past and future exist only with reference to the concept of the present moment, which is the central point in time. What was once present is now past, and what will once be present is now future. Both the past and the future are the present when they occur. But more importantly, the past and the future are both concepts that exist only in the present moment. Therefore, relatively speaking, the present is the only point in time that is real.
6000 year old Bhagawad Gita is all about being in the moment. It asks us to seize the moment. Though all that passes by it is constantly changing, the present moment itself always remains without undergoing any change, and hence it is the static gateway through which we may pass from the illusion of ever-changing time to the reality of our ever-unchanging being.
If something travels faster than light, it means that it can penetrate any matter as though it wasn’t there. Therefore scalar waves pervade all matter and cannot be shielded against by Faraday cages . Vedic healing waves ( lifted by Reiki ) waves pass through the earth.

Quantum physicists went to the heart of matter and were astounded by what they saw. Matter was not solid at all as our senses tell us but merely energy in motion. It is written that time and space are relative. This is the heart of Vedanta. 6000 years ago the Bhagawad Gita declared that what binds us to wheel of samsara are the three mental bonds known as desa, kaala and nimitta, - space, time and causality and that these are purely mental bonds which we have created ourselves. We have created this world of concrete objects and superimposed a false reality on them. Again and again our scriptures tell us that Absolute reality is beyond these three upadis -desha, kaala and nimitta or space time and causality. This world which we think we see is maya or an appearance. It has no permanent reality. It is only a passing show and has no permanence. Our bodies which are made of the same material - the five elements are also perishable. BUT we are not solely these bodies. Our reality is something far greater since we are actually the atman - which is imperishable and eternal and untouched by the changes of the body which take place in the world of space /Time. The moment we demarcate ourselves as belonging to a specified place and time, that moment we separate ourselves from our roots and thus bring suffering on ourselves. We are the creators of time and space. When we bring energy to conscious awareness, through the act of perception we create separate objects that exist in space through a measured continuum called time. By creating time and space we create our own false separateness. If we want to understand the universe we will have to see it as a dynamic web of interconnectedness. Human beings are a coalescence of energy in a field of energy which is connected to every other thing in this universe. This energy field is the central engine of our being. We can never be estranged from the other aspects of this universe since we are all bound fundamentally to this field ( brahmAn )!. Our soul is just a part of brahmAn, the mother field sheared off with lowered frequency and sent to planet earth for gaining experience and evolution. As the soul evolves its frequency increases. When the frequency is increased to match the frequency of the mother field , moksha happens and the soul merges with brahman. YOU are now god. YOU share your experience with god in a closed loop. BrahmAn knows everything . Human suffering stems from this very fact, that we have cut ourselves off from our roots and have condemned ourselves to a life of isolation. This was not how nature meant us to be. Modern physics has thus given us a correct evaluation of our place in the world. The human consciousness (as our scriptures have always told us) is a crucial factor in making up this universe. Sub atomic particles settle down from their constant erratic movements and take on solid shapes only when we observe them. Matter is composed of subatomic particles that have no design or shape and do not follow any standard order. Sometimes they behave like waves and sometimes like particles and sometimes they are both as well as many things at same time. Hence these physicists actually proved the maya theory in a scientific way. The entire white skinned Quantum physicists wrote in their wills that they want to be cremated and not buried. As the Gita tells us in chapter 3, “ Sahayajna praja sristwa purovacha prajapati.” - The creator created all of us and instilled the idea of yajna or selfless action in us. No man is an island and no one can live without any sort of dependence on others and on nature. There is no me and mine as we think but all things are connected in an amazing way to the energy field. “Mamta and ahamta” (me and mine) have always been considered to be the two knots which alienate us from god. In this unified field there is no place for EGO laden me and mine. Any selfish act immediately isolates us from the world and from nature and many such acts eventually bring unhappiness, discontent, ill health and continuous bad luck which we blame on others and on our fate etc. never realizing that it is only a consequence of our own selfish actions. Here is where the law of karma comes into play. Our world is shaped by our own actions. In this respect we must understand that our thoughts are also actions. As Krishna says in the human being, INTENT is even more important than the actual action. Pure energy as it exists on the quantum level is not bound by time or space but exists as a vast continuum of fluctuating change which exists here and now. This moment, this tiny bit of time and space we are existing now is the only truth and reality. The past is a dream and the future a fantasy. What exists is the present which again has only a fleeting reality. Bhagawad Gita tells us to be in NOW- to seize the moment. This is this planet’s ultimate lesson and can never ever be surpassed.Quantum physicists agreed with Bhagawad Gita ,that individual consciousness does not die with the death of the body . Krishna says, “Like a man changing his clothes so also the spirit changes one body for another. But the spirit lives on so why grieve when someone dies. It is only his body, which was unreal in any case, which has passed on to the elements from which it came into existence. His reality is the atman which was never born and thus can never die. Quantum physicists discovered that the world as we see it and as the maharishis stated is not real. The quantum world deals with shadow symbols, it is a dream world but it is not the ultimate reality as they themselves are willing to admit. It is a shadow quantum world beyond the veil of MAYA and we see only the shadows of things but not their reality. The shadows appear to be the whole world and this is because of a strange phenomenon in which our minds get bound up in the cocoon of time, space and causality and imagine the shadows to be real. This is the world which the Gita describes in the 7th chapter.. “Bhumi, aponalo vayu, Kham mano, buddhi eva cha. Ahamkaram itiyam me bhinna Prakriti ashtada. “My lower Prakriti is eight-fold and is composed of the five elements, earth, water, fire, air, space, mind, buddhi and ego. But this is my lower Prakriti which is available to the senses and which we believe to be real.. He then goes on to say “Apareyamitastwanyam Prakriti viddhi me param.” “But know this to be my lower nature. My higher nature is that spiritual being which sustains this entire universe and which is totally different from this.” Krishna continues in the 7th chapter, “These two natures form the womb of all beings. I am the origin and dissolution of the entire universe.” Krishna declares, “All things exist in Me but mark my mystery, I do not exist in them” What he means to say is that god in not a sum total of all creation. Even though they are in Him, he is not in them and that is why no amount of enquiry into the shadow world can give us the truth of absolute consciousness. Sanatana Dharma is not for halfwits. The Newtonian scientist will NOT accept the TV remore works as he cant pick up the invisible waves with his 5 senses. Till now the experimenter's job was always to get out of the way of the experiment and not interfere with the purely mechanical process involved in the experiment. Now it was proved by the scientist that the individual consciousness has everything to do with the final outcome of the experiment. This consciousness stems from a phenomenon known as super-radiance which is a state of perfect coherence. Quantum particles act in a haphazard fashion of chaos or disorder but when the individual consciousness is brought to bear on them, they lose their individuality and begin to act as a single unit. This coherence extends into the world. This coherence of consciousness represents the greatest form of order known to nature and can help to shape and create order in the world. In meditation and especially in the state of samadhi, our brain reaches that zero point field of the chitta which has perfect coherence. This is the substructure which underlies the whole universe. It is a recording medium of everything, by which everything can communicate with everything else. Consciousness of people has incredible powers. It can increase order in the world and make it as we wish it to be. If a number of individuals concentrate and wish for the same thing it has even greater force. It is not a wise thing to hijack the Sabarimala pilgrimage or the Thrissur pooram. What do these COLLEGIUM LAWYER TURNED JUDGES know?A large number of individuals meditating at the same time can produce a great amount of coherence in the world outside. . The fractal minds of our rishis opened our eyes to a world of mystery and beauty. Kosher thieves have lifted the essence , patented in their names and wrangled Nobel prizes.
2.45- - samadhisiddhirishvarapranidhanat
Realization is experienced by making the Lord the motive of all actions.
Patanjali's concept of Isvara in Yoga philosophy functions as a "transformative catalyst or guide for aiding the yogin on the path to spiritual emancipation" When my elder son was leaving India to study computer science at Cornell, Ithaca, US, my wife took him to the Muthappan temple at Calicut. In a corner of the temple premises was a small room with a lit lamp inside . The shrine was empty-there was NO deity . Outside the tiny shrine was written in Malayalam GURU. My wife told me that this is the shrine of their KULADEVATA ( family gotra deity ). Obviously is it brahmAn, the field.
In Hinduism the Hindu has the freedom and choice of conceptualizing Isvara in any meaningful manner. No dogma is imposed. During the white invaders rule the FAKE and backdated Bhakti movement of Jew Rothschild created dogma. We had devotees or Shiva and Vishnu fighting like cobra and mongoose. In the practice of Yoga Nidra, we look to reach the hypnagogic state – the state between waking a dreaming in which the ego-mind isn’t as in control as it might usually be. When we’re in the hypnagogic state, we’re able to relax even more than we might do when sleeping. The hypnagogic state of consciousness, during the onset of sleep has been lifted from Vedanta and termed as the Alpha state by modern scientists. Since life began, the Earth has been surrounding and protecting all living things with a natural frequency pulsation of 7.83 HZ—the ancient Indian Rishis called OM. The fundamental mode of Schumann's resonance is a standing wave in the ionospheric cavity with a wavelength of the circumference of the earth. In deep meditation, when waves of alpha and theta rhythms cascade across the entire brain, a resonance is possible between the human being and the planet. Energy and information which are embedded in the zero point field or aether field are transferred. The planet communicates with us in this primal language of frequencies. Alpha brain Frequency of 7.83 HZ on the EEG, is also known popularly as Schumann’s ( Vedic ) Resonance . 7.83 HZ or the ALPHA frequency is the gateway that leads into deeper states of consciousness. Most people are in an alpha state during the short time immediately before they fall asleep and when the conscious nervous system switches over to the subconscious. 7 to 12 HZ range is frequency range for relaxed consciousness , psychic Stimulation , mind body integration , inner awareness , visualization and whole brain thinking. The alpha wave state is a sign of deep relaxation while awake. You experience a liberating sense of peace and well-being. The "alpha state" is where meditation starts and you begin to access the wealth of creativity that lies just below our conscious awareness. Alpha is also the home of the window frequency known as the Schumann Resonance, which is the resonant frequency of the earth's electromagnetic field. When we intentionally generate alpha waves and go into resonance with that earthy frequency, we naturally feel better, refreshed, in tune, in synch. It is, in fact, environmental synchronization. The frequency of the living Earth, the “Schumann Resonance” of 7.83 HZ is the lowest common denominator of psychic activity repeatedly observed by EEG and EKG observations. Schumann Resonance waves propagate with little attenuation around the planet.. For thousands of years the Schumann Resonance or pulse (heartbeat) of Earth has been 7.83 cycles per second, recently due to military ELF waves from HAARP , GWEN and Woodpecker, this resonance has been slowly rising. Modern spacecrafts are said to contain a device which simulates the Schumann waves. by producing a 7.83 Hz pulse ( frequency of OM ) with a field generator (Schumann device), we can counter the effects of the irritating man-made fields. By replicating the Earth's natural rhythm, we may be providing ourselves (at least in our immediate vicinity) with a more healthy environment. Theta brain waves are associated with " subconscious mind " --while delta is connected with " unconscious mind " Beginners of meditation can go only to alpha and theta. The ancient Vedic rishis (lesser ones ) took Soma , a potent drug stronger than LSD to go into the delta range for terrific intuition . They could tap into " universal knowledge " ( the mind beyond our own or the collective unconscious. Mind is an outgrowth of the basic laws of quantum physics together with the actions of the observer, which are the acts of consciousness. Feelings and thoughts show the same type of duality as waves and particles. Consciousness is created by quantum mechanical phenomenon that takes place in brain cells. This is why a supercomputer cannot recognize a joke or tell the moral of a story like “ Unity is strength” . We have unlimited access to the radiant field of consciousness which is infinite active universal intelligence. We all have direct and immediate access to the scalar field of consciousness . There is a connection between DNA and consciousness .The brain and the DNA are transducers for quantum information from the scalar field. Quantum coherence in the micro tubules of every cell is the key to consciousness . This explains the mysterious powers of Reiki. The greatest discovery of our Earth is its consciousness. A visible attribute of consciousness is an energetic field that governs the shaping of organisms. Morphogenesis is a scientific term to explain this very shaping of tissues, organs, and entire organisms. Consciousness is the creative force of the entire universe. The entire universe is in fact a single living conscious organism with complete awareness of itself. This is the power of brahmAn, the field. 99.99% people never raise their consciousness much above that of the animal and the spark of divinity within them remains dormant the whole of their lives. We see incredible order and harmony and pattern which no accident can produce. The material universe is the result of an image projected by the creative power. Each mineral is crystallised according to a definite design or image. The image of the human being is contained within the microscopic DNA strands of the fertilised egg in the womb. Some kind of intelligent force ( consciousness ) must have started with an image or blueprint which ultimately manifested itself as a particular form. Consciousness is a form of electromagnetic energy which with focused thought and intent can achieve extraordinary things. After the conversations about Indian philosophy, some of the ideas of Quantum Physics that had seemed so crazy suddenly made much more sense." - W. Heisenberg (German Physicist, 1901-1976). Surrendering our ego and our selfish desires is very closely linked to the concept of ‘letting go of the fruits of our actions’ and ‘non-attachment’, which is a focal point of the Bhagavad Gita. In our daily life off the yoga mat, Isvara Pranishana can be seen as less of a devotional dedication or a surrendering, and more of an ‘opening up to what is’, and instead of fighting against life’s twists and turns, remaining open to experiencing life as it unfolds. Remaining fixed and rigid in our conditioned patterns, habits and limitations only leads to a limited life. Surrendering is hugely challenging, because it means transcending the ego, and the ego will do everything it can to hold on to some control. Without the conditioning, worries, perceptions and judgements that we falsely hold so closely to us, the ego would not exist, and therefore it tries desperately to cling on when we work on quietening it. Surrendering to what is requires trust in our deepest Self, our intuition and the courage to express ourselves for who we are, as we are, with all of our perfect imperfections, which ultimately leads to freedom. This state of being is also known as ‘creative surrender’, as it is a deliberate and conscious relaxation of the mind and body. When we reach this state, we surrender and open up to reality, creating space in the mind for reality to flow through. The hypnagogic state sheds light on how our thought processes can be very different when we’re truly relaxed than when we’re in our usual mindset. It is said that the hypnagogic state is one in which there is a ‘loosening of ego boundaries’ and creative ideas are more fluid. Yoga is about creative surrender and entering a state of deep relaxation. In the borderlands between wakefulness and rest is a strange and fascinating state of consciousness characterized by dream-like visions and strange sensory occurrences. Psychologists call this stage "hypnagogia," but centuries before they created a term for it, artists were using the hypnagogic state to tap into some of their best ideas. During this state, the mind is "fluid and hyperassociative," giving rise to visions that can "express layers of memories and sensations". Similar to REM sleep -- the state of deep sleep when our dreams occur -- the mind is cycling through thoughts, ideas, memories and emotions, making free and often distant associations between diverse concepts. But unlike REM, during hypnagogia you're conscious enough to be at least partially aware of what's going on. Scientists have observed the presence of both alpha brain waves -- which are the dominant brain wave mode when we are conscious but relaxed, for instance when daydreaming or meditating -- and theta brain waves, which are associated with restorative sleep, during hypnagogia. Typically, these brain waves occur only separately, and it may be the unique combination that gives rise to unusual visions and sensations. The state is also marked by reduced activity in the prefrontal cortex of the brain, which is involved in planning, decision-making and social behavior. In some ways, hypnagogia is the best of both worlds. You get the free flow of ideas and associations that occurs during REM sleep -- when the brain reviews and processes memories, thoughts and feelings -- but you're still awake enough to be somewhat conscious of what's going on. For this reason, creative people have entered the ZONE OF THE MAHARISHIS and found hypnagogia to be a rich source of ideas and inspiration. By surrendering the results of our actions, as told by Krishna 6000 years go, or simply learning to trust in the universe a little more; each time we do choose to surrender, we move closer to freedom. Nikola Tesla has told about his creative visions while in the zone of the Indian rishis. Ishvara is the Absolute Brahman, the Unchanging Reality. Praṇidhana is used to mean a range of senses including, "laying on, fixing, applying, attention (paid to), meditation, desire, prayer.” The word Ishvarapraṇidhana means committing what one does to the supreme purusha who is the first GURU (paramaguru) and is free of all hindrances and karma. It literally means acceptance. Patanjali's concept of Isvara in Yoga philosophy functions as a "transformative catalyst or guide for aiding the yogin on the path to spiritual emancipation"
Recently or ex-CJI Markandey Katju was making extremely sarcastic of Srinivasan Ramanujan for asking his Kuladevata permission to travel abroad . By the way Katjus are Kashmiri Brahmins , who opportunistically converted to Islam during foreign muslim rule ( for cushy jobs ) and then converted back to Hindusim when the power passed on to the white invader. Almost all of the Katjus eat beef and most of them are still muslims. It took Srinivasan Ramanujan three days to connect with the field while sitting in deep meditation within the shrine of Goddess Namagiri. Suddenly Ramanujan woke up from the theta state and told his well wisher that the Goddess has permitted him to go to England . Peabrained Katju will never understand the secrets of the human mind.
Early morning before daybreak Hindu women draw Kolams outside their home doors as a Isvara-pranidhana. These morning offerings, like so many everyday rituals in India, embody the yoga practice of Ishvara pranidhana—surrendering (pranidhana) to a higher source (Ishvara). Ishvara pranidhana is a “big picture” yoga practice: It initiates a sacred shift of perspective that helps us to remember, align with, and receive the grace of being alive. To shallow minded west idea of surrender as a virtue may seem savage.
Many of us have only experienced surrendering to a higher source as a last resort, when we’ve confronted seemingly insurmountable problems or in some other way hit the edge of our individual will and abilities. But in the Yoga Sutra, Patanjali transforms “surrender” from this sort of last-resort, emergency response into an essential ongoing practice. Patanjali repeatedly highlights Ishvara pranidhana as one of the five niyamas, or inner practices, of the ashta-anga (eight-limbed) path.In Indian yoga, intuition is the single greatest tool to finding happiness . Intuition is soul guidance or the inner voice. Intuition helps you stay in the present, like what is advocated in the Bhagavat Gita. It has little to do with predicting the future. . Playfulness and relaxation usually stimulate the intuitive process. All the human senses are channels for intuition and every cell can be an antenna to receive information. Intuition is a gift of crisis--- It tells you the right thing to do when you don't have time to figure it all out. Intuits are able to see possibilities and alternatives that aren’t immediately apparent. Your inner knowing comes from first your instincts, second your intellect, and third from your intuition. Intuition is not pseudo-science . It is an essential psychological function like thinking, feeling and sensing. The divining power of intuition comes from our inner self. It arises from very rapid processing of bits of information that are stored in our subconscious. Intuition thinks in terms of metaphor, feelings, pictures, and the spatial whole and doesn't fit neatly into the cause-and-effect model. It is about trusting your own integrity - trusting your gut, trusting your heart.. . Your intuition will not force you to do things that are truly wrong for yourself or other people in contradiction with the laws of the universe. Intuition is listening to the inner voice or heeding the promptings from within. Intuition is a ability to cut through the thickness of surface reality . Intuition and confidence go hand in hand. Your sub-conscious which operates a dozen times faster than your conscious mind has picked up on signals that your conscious mind has not yet processed. We function through partial information, and intuition gives us an overview, a whole sense of things. Intuition acts like a bridge between your logical reasoning and the sum total of your experience-based knowledge. Intuition is a knowing, a sensing that is beyond the conscious understanding — a gut feeling-- flashes of spontaneous thought that are done apparently without relating to facts or logic. Intuition is fast, based on pattern matching. The divining power of intuition comes from our inner self-- very rapid processing of bits of information that are stored in our subconscious. We cannot command our gut feeling to use it at will. It just surfaces spontaneously when certain circumstances are present. Intuitive insights suddenly appear as ideas or feelings.Intuition is now an EQ competency. It’s considered something necessary to successful living, and something to be respected and valued. Intuitive decisions are NOT guesswork . Intuition has an important role to play in decision making . Intuition is not limited to opinions but can encompass the ability to know valid solutions to problems. Intuition usually shows up in the areas where you have passion and talent. By logic that we prove, by intuition we discover. Intuition is a sudden and inexplicable knowing. It lies at the roots of spontaneity, humor, creativity, inspiration, and even genius. Intuition has its own unique language for communicating with you through touch, sight, taste, sound, and smell. As you pay attention to your senses, you’ll begin to understand the “vocabulary” of your intuition. Mental static and ego can get in the way of tapping into intuition. Intuition bubbles up from within and can be overwhelmed by old mental or emotional "tapes" . Intuition gone wild becomes “jumping to conclusions”. By going too far out on a limb , you risk misinterpreting the situation and start harming others. Intuition should not be overused. Your brain is a complex tapestry of interacting neurons, all working together to provide you with insights that guide you through life. It’s complicated. So complicated that your conscious brain cannot keep up with everything it’s trying to tell you. So what exactly is intuition? It is the messages from your unconscious mind making contact with your consciousness. . The uncanny ability to detect patterns in the world around us, and to extrapolate larger truths . Use it always, never ignore it. Our instincts and intuition are more reliable in a decision making, than our conscious brain. . By listening to what our heart and soul tells us to do - and then doing it - we can take ourselves anywhere we have ever dreamed of going. Your consciousness only uses a tiny proportion of your brainpower and your intuition accesses the residual power and communicates to your consciousness the bank of wisdom and knowledge it has available. This is done subtly through thoughts, feelings, sensations, images, sounds or any combination of them. Just as animals have a natural survival instinct so humans are born with the natural ability to be intuitive; your human instinct. Traits often found in those with high intuitive intelligence include-- an awareness of one's personal value system, a healthy awareness of one's own feelings, an ability for self-direction and self-management, a powerful level of self-trust, a desire for innovation, a refined knowledge of one's strengths and weaknesses, and a high degree of self-regard and freedom. Never ignore the inner spark , the gut feeling, the sixth sense or hunch that ignites vision and leads you to success. Intuitive insights motivate us to grow closer to the creative source, thereby igniting our own creative spark and expression, which is the essence of our true self. When you feel excited about something, that's a hint about what to pursue. Isvara Pranishana is less of a devotional dedication or a surrendering, and more of an ‘opening up to what is’, and instead of fighting against life’s twists and turns, remaining open to experiencing life as it unfolds. Remaining fixed and rigid in our conditioned patterns, habits and limitations only leads to a limited life. Surrendering is hugely challenging, because it means transcending the ego, and the ego will do everything it can to hold on to some control. Without the conditioning, worries, perceptions and judgements that we falsely hold so closely to us, the ego would not exist, and therefore it tries desperately to cling on when we work on quietening it. Surrendering to what is requires trust in our deepest Self, our intuition and the courage to express ourselves for who we are, as we are, with all of our perfect imperfections, which ultimately leads to freedom. Patanjali advises us to ‘surrender’ to this Supreme Being or higher self, which in essence means cultivating a deep and trusting relationship with the universe and to follow the laws of the universe. This is indeed the meaning of spirituality .The yogi is aware that something bigger, more profound and pure exists other than himself.. The ‘easiest’ path to peace and realisation, requiring no effort or pain on our part – we simply let go, devote everything to a higher power and completely devote our actions to whatever we consider that higher power to be….Surrendering our ego and our selfish desires is very closely linked to the concept of ‘letting go of the fruits of our actions’ and ‘non-attachment’, which is a focal point of the Bhagavad Gita.The practice of surrendering here requires us to acknowledge that we can do our very best in each situation, but we can’t really do any more than that; realising this essentially allows us to fully engage and be present in what we’re doing, bringing all our energy to that moment , the NOW, and experiencing it fully just for what it is – what happens after, happens after. Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength. This is the message of Krishna in Bhagawad Gita. It is way different from single holy book religions which command you to kill all those who does not worship your god.

Ishvara-Pranidhana is listed as the fifth niyama by Pantanjali. In Hinduism, the Niyamas are the "do list" and the Yamas are the "don't do" list, both part of an ethical theory for life. This Niyama of Patanjali adds the characteristics of Isvara as that special Self which is unaffected ( aparamrsta) by one's obstacles/hardships ( klesha), one's circumstances created by past or one's current actions ( karma), one's life fruits , vipâka), and one's psychological dispositions/intentions (ashaya).
Isvara Pranidhana is about cultivating a deep and trusting relationship with the universe, and making each action an offering to something bigger than us. The Ishwara of God in yoga is NOT a deity— it is a field ( brahmAn ) of which the soul is a detached part with reduced frequency. This soul must evolve by the laws of Karma, raise its frequency and merge back to the mother field of brahmAn to provide the feedback loop. .This is real evolution , not the monkey to man concept of madman Charles Darwin. In Yoga sutras Ishwara is a logical construct. This is a means to begin the process of dissociating from external world, connecting with one's inner world, focusing and getting one-minded in Yoga. Isvara is not an ontological concept, rather it has been an abstract concept to meet the pedagogical needs for human beings accepting Yoga philosophy as a way of life. The main components of an ontology are concepts, relations, instances and axioms. Jew Rothschild created Arya Samaj and Brahmo Samaj – lifted from Christian and Islamic movements in India – to conceptualize Ishvara as a monotheistic all powerful Lord. Sorry, this is NOT Sanatana Dharma. It wont work . Sanatana Dharma leaves the individual with freedom and choice of conceptualizing Isvara in any meaningful manner . The need and purpose of Isvara, whatever be the abstraction of it as "special kind of Self" or "personal deity", is not an end in itself, rather it is a means to "perfect the practice of concentration" in one's journey through the eight limbs of Yoga philosophy. In the Samkhya school of Sanatana Dharma, Purusa is a central metaphysical concept, and envisioned as "pure consciousness". Further, Purusa is described by Samkhya school to exist in a "plurality of pure consciousness" in its epistemological theory (rather than to meet the needs of its ontological theory). In Yogasutras, Patanjali defines Isvara as one among the plurality of "pure consciousness".Isvara Pranidhana can be thought of as ‘offering up the results of one’s actions to the divine’, or as per the laws of the universe to humanity. Isvara Pranidhana in your work and ‘dharma’ or ‘life duty’. When we reach the hypnagogic state, we surrender and open up to reality, creating space in the mind for reality to flow through. The hypnagogic state sheds light on how our thought processes can be very different when we’re truly relaxed than when we’re in our usual mindset. There is a a ‘loosening of ego boundaries’ and creative ideas are more fluid. Patanjali does not ask the yogi to surrender to a deity on a pedestal , you are asked to surrender to the Ultimate Reality. Yoga makes us feel good; it heals us when we’re hurt, and it helps us find light when all we see is dark, but it also shows us what we’re made of when things get tough. Isvara Pranidhana is an easy path to peace and realisation, requiring no effort or pain on our part – we simply let go, our proactive actions to whatever we consider that higher power to be….The state of ‘creative surrender’, is a deliberate and conscious relaxation of the mind and body. When we’re in the Hypnagogic state, we’re able to relax even more than we might do when sleeping. Whether it’s surrendering to a moment of difficulty or a moment of joy, surrendering the results of our actions, or simply learning to trust in the universe a little more; each time we do choose to surrender, we move closer to freedom. For Patanjali, Ishvara pranidhana is a potent method for dissolving the endless agitations of the mind, and thus a means to the ultimate unified state of yoga: samadhi. Because Ishvara pranidhana shifts our perspective from the obsession with “I”—with our narrow individual concerns and perspective—that causes so much of the mind’s distraction and creates a sense of separation from our Source. Since Ishvara pranidhana focuses not on ego but on the sacred ground of being, it reunites us with our true Self. Ishvara pranidhana provides a pathway through the obstacles of our ego toward our divine nature—grace, peace, unconditional love, clarity, and freedom.Ishvara is the inner compass, pranidhana is remembering to stay connected to that essence not just occasionally but throughout the day. A yogi always stands on high moral ground and uses his conscience. Using his personal charm to wheel and deal like the modern hustlers is never in his agenda. He has core values like fairness, integrity, transparency, respect , tolerance for culture, responsibility , spirit of inclusion etc. A yogi can respect and appreciate culture in terms of itself. He is sensitive to cultural nuances. . There is no inner state, emotion, or obstacle that is beyond the positive influence of Ishvara pranidhana. The West must know that Surya namaskar is a method of Ishvara pranidhana. We live in, Kali Yuga in which all humanity has fallen away from grace.

You are brainwashed to admire the graceless and UGLY and shun the divine and beautiful.
Ishvarapranidhana is more than just bowing to a deity in a altar. It is an attitude and a way of being which allows one to identify with the eternal aspects of one’s own self rather than identifying with the everchanging mind and body. Ishvara is known as divine awareness, absolute consciousness, the eternal witness that lies within each of us. Pranidhna indicates aligning with, applying one’s self to, surrender, devotion and dedication. Ishvarapranidhana can be regarded as orientating and aligning ourselves with our own internal eternal divinity. An example of this is the surrendering of our mind and ego in order to witness our true self. Patanjali states that it is this surrendering of the active mind with dedication and devotion that allows one to attain and perfect Samadhi; union with the divine. Advanced practitioners of yoga and meditation will agree that surrendering the activities of the mind is crucial in attaining deep states of meditation and beyond. Yoga is not a mere physical exercise. This type of surrender does not mean losing a battle or giving up , or throwing down the towel in a negative sense. This is a surrender from the heart. It encompasses trust, devotion, and love for our Divine Source. It shifts our perspective and awakens us to our deep connection to God or ‘higher power’.To surrender is to let go of our expectations, habits, judgments, prejudices and criticisms. Surrendering is about allowing life unfold with gratitude. As we let go of our limiting perceptions, life flows with freshness and freedom. Ishvara pranidhana is not about what your yoga can do for you, but about approaching your practice in the spirit of offering.Surrender is the simple but profound wisdom of yielding to rather than opposing the flow of life.We let our heart determine our choices instead of our minds. When we surrender we see through the eyes of love. We start to accept life in its crazy, beautiful entirety, and in doing so we free ourselves up to do what makes our heart sing. We begin to let the divine spark inside us express itself. Life becomes an adventure. We allow happiness to alight on us like a butterfly rather than chasing it. We give our body, mind and spirit to the path of love by surrendering every act to love and sharing. . In Isvara Pranidhana, we devote our practices to a higher power without expectation. With devoted practice, we cultivate awareness, intuition and oneness with the universal energy that flows through us. With devoted practice, we build our personal connection to this life force such that the act of surrendering is not complacency, but trust. Surrendering and devoting our actions to this higher power. Ishvara pranidhana helps you to remember that the universe does not revolve around you, that you don’t need to have all the answers. Ishvara pranidhana is the surrender, consecration of our actions and the will to something greater than ourselves. You trust in the Divine, the abandonment peace, non-attachment (moha) or craving of pleasure (lobha) that generates pain (soka), confident that the problems are transient phenomena and that everything passes, and that time heals .
