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.
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.
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.
ABOUT SHANTHI YOGA
What is the importance of Shanthi Yoga?
Shanthi yoga is also a meditation. Many people tend to
ignore its value. It is very important for 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.
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
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 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
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.

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.
