Ajapa Yoga - Royal Way to Kundalini Awakening

A simple yet powerful way to mental peace and spiritual progress as taught by Bipin Joshi.

Essence of Yoga
The word Yoga means union. Union with the God. The God is referred by many names. Some call Him Atman, some Soul, some Bramhan and some others Creator. Whatever you name Him the underlying principal remains the same. In these lessons we will call him as God because it is the most common word than everybody understands and can relate to. Though the meaning of word Yoga is union it also refers to all the means and processes adopted to achieve this union.
Kundalini and Chakras
Kundalini is the sleeping dormant energy in human beings situated at the base of the spinal column. In most of us Kundalini resides as a static or potential energy. However, using various yogic techniques it can be made dynamic or kinetic. A piece of wood has inherent energy of fire. That means wood already has static energy. If you ignite it this static energy gets converted to another form i.e. it becomes dynamic. Similar thing can be said about water. Water has inherent potential of steam energy. We need to supply required temperature and this transformation happens. In case of Kundalini this transformation is brought by means of various yogic practices. The word Kundalini literally means “the one who is coiled”.
Practice of Ajapa Meditation
Breath goes out with the sound of Ha and comes in with sound Sa. If we combine these two letters in the form of exhalation and inhalation it becomes HamSah mantra. If we combine them as inhalation and then exhalation it becomes SoHam mantra. Both of these mantras have the same meaning. The Sanskrit word SoHam is combination Sah + Aham. Sah means 'That' and Aham means 'I'. Here, 'I' means Jiva or individual soul and Sah means Shiva or Supreme Soul.
