of KAYA KALPA
term "Kaya Kalpa" has three meanings:
1) withstanding the aging process
2) maintaining youthfulness, and
3) postponement of death until the time one wishes.
Ever since man started curing illness, he began to discover the
causes for illness. Then prevention of illness also was added in the
evolution of culture. While he was enjoying pleasures and suffering
from pains through his five senses, through his sixth sense he
started to understand the perfect functional order of nature, i.e.
the principle of cause and effect.
efforts to cure and prevent illness he further thought over the
avoidance or postponement of death. By continuous search and
research for generations, man found several methods of rejuvenating
his physical body with foods, medicines, herbs, exercises and
austerities. Each method showed a certain effect and some very
effective methods are still in use all over the world in various
places. Yet a perfect system has not been found to suit all sections
of people of all countries, climates and ecological conditions.
centuries before Christ, the need for a system of rejuvenation and
withstanding the aging process was felt by Lord Buddha, when he
thought of alleviating suffering from disease, old age and death. He
was not given any help by the intellectuals of the day to find the
secrets of aging and disease. The question remained unanswered for
hundreds of years, but the urge and search were going on
Between the tenth and fifteenth centuries some alchemists, called
'Siddhas' in South India were successful in their research and lived
as long as they wished, and after death their bodies were impervious
to decay and disintegration. Eighteen well-known saints demonstrated
their longevity to the people and the people saw that their bodies
did not decay after death. Nowadays, there is no descendant to
personally teach their system, but the processes of rejuvenation,
withstanding aging and postponement of death are scattered bit by
bit in the writings of the Siddhas. The processes to be followed are
all written in obtuse language, and although written in Tamil, even
a scholar cannot understand the meaning clearly today.
youth, even before my teen age, the crucial questions: "What is
God?" "What is Life?" "How does poverty exist?" - started in my
mind. At that age I could not discuss these subjects with other
enlightened men. In my teen age I started reading some books written
by the Siddha saints. I came across several philosophical
expositions in poetic form. I could not get clear answers to the
questions which had been haunting my mind constantly for years. In
the course of study, I learned of several herbs and medicines to
cure diseases. Interspersed in the Siddha's teachings, there were
some indications about the process of Kaya Kalpa, victory over
death. It was a confusing subject to me although it engaged my
interest. Meanwhile, I earnestly studied medicine and got diplomas
in Ayurveda, Siddha and Homeopathy. I began practicing exercise for
rejuvenation, general health and to avoid begetting children.
years later, after I had good experience in Kundalini Yoga and got
realization of Self (Consciousness) I happened again to study the
same Siddha texts. What a wonder. I could easily understand the
meaning of the philosophical terms and also the process of Kaya
Kalpa with its science and practical exercise. I taught these
exercises to some close friends and by enquiry, I found they got
am teaching this wonderful process. Kaya Kalpa, to hundreds of
people yearly. The practitioners are obtaining satisfactory results,
both in physical strength and vitality and in curing some illnesses.
Furthermore, there is significant spiritual benefit. The sexual
energy is transmuted into spiritual energy by directing it to the
Crown Chakra. The enlightenment of consciousness, which is the
purpose of birth, is naturally gradually achieved. The temperamental
moods developed in man's personality will be naturally sublimated
into spiritual awareness and more behavior for the welfare and
happiness of all.
Practice of Kaya Kalpa involves two main exercises:1) toning up the
nervous system to withstand the aging process and 2) "Ojas breath" -
to recycle the sexual vital fluid to rejuvenate the body and
postpone death. These two exercises are very simple to learn and
course is taught in two sittings of 11/2 hours each. In the first
sitting the science of body chemistry and functions is elaborately
explained. In the second sitting the practical exercises are taught
so that the student becomes well acquainted with their sequential
order and duration. As this practice is a restructuring process of
the body in a natural way, no medicines or herbs are involved.
Significant results will soon be noticeable if moderation in food,
work, rest, sex and use of thought force is observed.
person after maturity is eligible to learn and practice Kaya Kalpa
without previous experience in meditation or spiritual practices.
Also this may be practiced in conjunction with any other spiritual
practices or physical exercises. Kaya Kalpa is a valuable and
powerful practice and was kept secret by the Siddhas who discovered
it. I will personally teach it to anyone who takes an oath not to
teach it to any other person without my express permission.
