Samadhi

Samadhi or Enlightenment is a superconscious state. In that state, union with God or Supreme Being is attained.

The state os Samadhi cannot be described by any means or language. To know what is this state, person must experience this state through direct intiutive cognition.

We can say that this state is all-blissful joy and peace, but the person must feel this oneself.

In Samadhi, the meditator loses his identity and becomes identical with Supreme Self. In this state, meditator and meditated become one.

This experience arises when the ego and mind are dissolved, but samadhi is not a "stone-like" inert state, as many foolish peoples think, it is a magnificient experience of unity and oneness, experience beyond the senses, where seer and sight become one.

Samadhi is the property and birthright of every human being.

There are basically two kinds of Samadhi, and that is Savikalpa and Nirvikalpa Samadhi.

In Savikalpa Samadhi or Samadhi's, there is a triad: the knower, knowledge and knowable. This Samadhi is possible when there is one-pointedness of the mind. There is only partial inhibition of the mind, and the Samskaras or Mind impressions are not burnt.

Nirvikalpa Samadhi is a condition of perfect awareness. In this state, there is a complete inhibition of all mental functions, and Samskaras or Mind impressions are totally burnt. When the Yogi is perfectly established in Nirvikalpa Samadhi, then the seed of rebirth or reincarnation can be totally burnt. Through Nirvikapla Samadhi Yogi attains immortality, the highest or transcendental wisdom and eternal bliss. In this samadhi, the mind, intellect and the senses entirely cease to function. All affections like ignorance, egoism, likes and dislikes, clinging to life mundane, are destroyed. The three Gunas or qualities of the Mind entirely cease to act, and the Yogi is attained Kaivalya, or supreme independence or freedom. The past and the future are blended into the present, and everything is "now" and "here". Time and space are transcended. All sorrows have ceased, all miseries have disappeared. There is eternal freedom.

This state is like ocean without waves. The Yogi experience the exalted state of limitless joy and Immeasurable Peace.

This experience is stupendous, grand and glorious.

  1. Life today is full of stress and strain, of tension and nervous irritability, of passion and

    hurry. If man puts into practice a few of the elementary principles of Yoga, he would be far

    better equipped to cope with his complex existence.Yoga brings in perfection, peace and lasting

    happiness. You can have calmness of mind at all times by the practice of Yoga. You can have

    restful sleep. You can have increased energy, vigour, vitality, longevity and a high standard of

    health. You can turn out efficient work within a short space of time. You can have success in

    every walk of life. Yoga will infuse in you new strength, confidence and self-reliance. The body

    and mind will be at your beck and call. Body is the temple of god. So it is our duty to keep it

    clean, fresh, and fragrant through developing compassion and love.Yoga gives you the capacity to

    face up to life's challenges. Similarly, when you respect your body, you tend to do things that

    will enhance its vitality. Many people who practice yoga become vegetarians and follow a

    macrobiotic diet. Apart from other exercise practicing yoga is more effective. It is not that we

    need to practice yoga daily try finding a once-a-week yoga class.
    yoga therapy is highly recommended for people in

    competitive, stressful working environments, for those who suffer from headaches, back and

    shoulder aches, allergies, and asthma; and for anyone over the age of 40.

  3. Ayurvedic Yoga therapy
    Yoga teaches us tolerance and love for the whole universe.
    Some months ago scientists found in their research something that left them puzzled.
    They discovered that human DNA structure is less complex than they had thought and it’s very similar to animal DNA.
    Upset by this discovery, which threatens human supremacy, the scientific community is frantically looking for confirmation that proves and guarantees that human beings are highly superior to the despised animals.
    In addition there is another prejudice which is about to become obsolete: it has long been thought animals were created to serve and feed human beings in the same way that the universe only exists so that human race can be at the centre of it.
