The following principles of yoga: the perfection principle, the principle of energy.
Perfection - as if you did not do the exercises in yoga, if you try to do them according to the instructions that you have received, as if you did not work (or not stretch the muscles, etc.), you're doing them perfectly (Principle of Perfection). Even if it looks not like the way it require to do. The fact of performance makes it perfect, but definitely on the approach to the approach is the perfect execution will be modified (cleaning canals, stretching and so on. D.), Until such time until it reaches the constant perfection. Therefore, the concept of the exercise is "wrong" in some way incorrect. The most important thing to do is regularly and continuously, and be sure that in our personal universe at this time we do it completely (as if it did).
Principle Energy (Funnels). Just as a ball thrown into the funnel, always slipping into the mouth, like this, when we are about doing something, or that exercise in yoga, we excite the energy, and the energy acts on the body in such a way that bends (transforms) the body fit for yoga way. No need to worry about the correctness of the exercise, the main thing about play and do be honest, for a long time and regularly.
Narration on Hatha Yoga (based on workshop).
1. Adya Shakti asked my (girlfriend): "How did the science of the body and breathing?"
She said: "The original (Shiva), Lord of life and death for the benefit of all living things, gave the teaching Hatha yoga people. He himself has mastered this science, and made numerous feats in the practice of Hatha Yoga. "
2. Adya said: "Tell me the science and where it is known to you?"
A friend said: "I taught her Shiva himself and you should know the following" (here begins the exposition of Hatha yoga).
3. She said, "As much as there is in the world of living beings of different species, there are the same number of poses of Hatha Yoga.
4. The person before you reach the human body, passes a series of animal bodies. During evolution they live millions and millions of lives in the bodies of animals before to earn the fortune to be born in the human body.
5. Living in the body of an animal, the soul performs or does not perform the commandments of life of the animal. And that has not complied with the soul in the body of an animal, is transmitted to the human body, as karma.
6. If, as a snake (reptile) soul is completely mastered the body of a reptile and reached success in this, then in the human body has all the qualities (positive) from the time of the reptile's body. If, while in the body of a reptile, the soul is not destined to fulfill all her in this body, the imperfections are transmitted in human body. And a person can suffer one or other diseases, or lack of flexibility, or lack of certain qualities that he should develop in the body of the animal.
7. Therefore, in the precious human body detected flaws (imperfections) from the time of life in the animal body.
8. Siva in His mercy specify the method as in one human life to correct the many, many flaws (imperfections), accumulated over billions of lives in the body of animals. This method is called asanas.
9. In carrying out the asanas, one removes all the impurities, the seeds of disease and other prints that are present at times in the bodies of animals. Performing asanas, people first neutralize the negative trends (ie while he is engaged in Hatha, illness go by the wayside, but once ceases to engage, they return), and then rebuilds your body so that it becomes perfect and, even if he not engaged in yoga, the body is not rolled back.
10. Just as rolled a heavy stone up the hill, to pass the stone can slide back and then pass the stone itself is heading in the right direction. Passes are called Sidhi in asana (perfection in performing asanas).
11. Upon reaching Sidhi in asana if you continue to practice yoga or not, a positive quality of the asanas is with you always, as a burnt pot no longer soak the water and burnt in the fire of yoga the body is no longer susceptible to disease. "
12. She said: "There is a law coupling coarse, fine and very thin. While working on the physical body, you get the effect on the subtle body, acting on the subtle body, you get the effect on the gross body.
13. Prana is the link between the bodies (which transmission link). "
14. Adya asked: "How should I do Hatha yoga?"
She said: "Shiva gave Hatha yoga and the one who performs this yoga is becoming knowledge. He gave it to those who are tired of the endless empty arguments about the superior nature of the universe.
15. Siva said: "You can not know what yoga is and do not have any knowledge, but if you practice, you will gain all of the knowledge, including knowledge of yoga.
16. To be successful, you have to practice every day with care, vigilance and consistency. It is only since acquired success in Hatha Yoga. Blank discussion is useless.
17. By performing asanas, you're not only cleanse the body and rebuild it, but also understand the law in such like, which states that the entire universe for the Hatha Yoga - his body, and his body - the whole universe. And changing your body, you change the universe, and by making changes in the universe, you change your body. And there is no difference - inside the body or outside.
18. Of all the countless forms of living beings, which are passed through the human soul, Shiva chose 64.000 64.000 creatures or asanas. Of these, in the modern era are relevant 85. Of the 85 most important 35. Of the 35 major 3. Of these three, the most important one - siddha in Assane.
19. Begin to learn Hatha yoga from simple to complex. Master a single exercise, then another and so on until you rack up exercise group. Then make another group, the third and so on, all 85 exercises included in this or that group.
20. Practice hatha yoga every day, preferably in the same place at the same time. If you can not do all the exercises group, do those who can. If you can not do the usual time for the duration, do as much as you can. If there are no conditions for this, at least I think about what I had to do. If you forget and think, do it the next day. "
21. Adya asked: "Why fear when studying Hatha yoga and how not to make mistakes when performing?"
A friend said: "Fear of laziness. Avoid delusion of mind. The principles of the comprehension of Hatha Yoga as follows: first principle - the principle of perfection (perfection of consciousness), the second principle - the principle of energy (energy performance, or a funnel principle).
23. The principle of perfection says, as if you did not do the exercises of Hatha Yoga (asanas)
if at the same time you're trying to make them according to the instructions (which you received from the teacher or from the text), as if you did not, you're doing these exercises perfectly, even if apparently they do not look like that were instructed to do. The very fact that exercise makes it perfect execution. But getting better and better on the approach to the approach you will get. Therefore, it is an intermediate perfection. Over time, as you reach the same (final) perfection. Therefore, the concept of "do the exercise properly" does not make sense. The most important thing to do is regularly and continuously, and be sure that in our personal universe in this time and in these circumstances, you do it all, as if you did not do.
24. The principle of energy. Just as the ball always rolls in the funnel into the neck, like this, when we make a particular asana, we excite the energy, and the energy acts on the body in such a way that bends (transforms) the body necessary for the body properly. No need to worry about the correctness of the exercise. The main thing about play asana, making it fair, for a long time and regularly. Excite energy and energy will do yoga.
25. Adya asked: "What is the measure of success in the implementation of Hatha yoga?"
A friend said: "The habit of practice Hatha yoga every day. Habit - is inertia behavior and thoughts. Bad service play a negative habits. There is no worse enemy. But Siva in his mercy has given people such asanas that if included in the habit of doing them, they bring the highest good in life and then release. Laziness, obscuration of mind, uncertainty, anxiety, weakness, intelligence, anxiety, neurotic poor digestion, bad complexion, terrible disease, dark karma and more overcome by habit to engage in Hatha yoga. If you feel that without training you can not live a day, you have attained perfection (success), you go to the right, towards the light. It is a sign on the road. "
Adya 26. asked, "Is there still any signs of success?"
She replied: "Well-being, mind, stability, body beauty, nice complexion, strong digestion, ability to remain motionless, the ability to capture opinion on the subject, the lack of mental chatter, the first manifestations of excess capacity, well-being, joyful attitude, the deep mysterious dreams, tranquility , increased sexuality - these signs, showing success in Hatha yoga. "
27. Adya asked: "What are the interference in Hatha yoga and how to get rid of them?"
A friend said: "extraneous sounds in the classroom, such as empty talk, quarrels, squabbles; when in a room where you do, there is someone else; when during the lessons stick with questions, mock and point the finger; When someone says that yoga is done properly; when a lack of nutritious food clean, pleasant and tasty; when the air is poisoned by toxic fumes or adverse city locations; endless arguments and defend their views before the ignorant; attempts to convince the fools; initiation into the affairs of idle curiosity; hindrance is, if you do yoga in one place and at one time; an excessive amount of work or excessive amounts of idleness; improper waste energy on all sorts of things; excessive ugnetanie of his body; uncaring about your body and not allowing him to relax and frolic; excessive waste of energy through sex (see Yoga sex.); self-doubt; questioned the doctrine - that some of the noise. "
28. Adya asked: "What are the consequences in the performance of Hatha yoga and whether the negative effects and, if so, how to neutralize them?"
She said: "Whatever exercise you do, the internal sense and sensation must be your principal advisers. If they say that it is necessary to reduce the load, it is reduced if you increase - increases. Remember the principle of energy - a funnel. Energy will show you how to do the exercise. It transforms your body. It will give a sense of what to do and what not she warn you about the negative consequences. Listen to her! "
29. In the early stages of yoga when the body is cleaned, when the channels are dirty (yet), there is the effect of ups and downs. As a man walking in the hills, the hard climb to the top, it is easy runs down, like this yogi is eagerly rushes into yoga, it hardly makes himself engaged to her. The gaps between the ups and downs become more and themselves ups and downs smaller. After a year or more practice goes on even level without exaltation and without deep falls. If you hold on a flat level for another year or more, increased sensations (off) starts. But it may come through a complete change of life. If the practice will last six months, he starts to develop a habit.
30. It should be particularly attentive to the implementation of respiratory exercises in Hatha yoga. There should be more careful and use more common sense than anywhere else in yoga. Neutralize possible negative consequences, reducing stress, changing exercises, increasing the rest, creating a comfortable living environment, eating delicious healthful food, having sex only in accordance with the yoga of sex, used drugs (medicinal herbs, pills, cleaning procedures, etc.).
31. Learn yoga treatises, consider them, communicate with the practice of yoga, live among them, find a competent teacher, to ask him, in every way you serve it and take initiation from him, using common sense, listen to the sensations. Comply with the regulations and thus avoid all possible negative trends of their karma. Foolish, careless, foolish student can be damaged, even if he eats soup, not to mention the more difficult things. "

NARRATION hatha - yoga.
Adya asked: Tell me what the word Hatha and how it is to be understood?
A friend said: HA - a father, Tha - is mum. Ha - this is my mother, Tha - is Pope. Hatha - their union, their child. Ha - sun, Tha - moon, ha - the moon, the TXA - the sun. Hatha means eclipse. HA means a day TCA means the night, HA - is the night, TXA - a day. Hatha means sunrise and sunset. Ha - this breath TXA - a breath. HA - is exhalation, Tha - is breath. Hatha means when there is no inhalation or exhalation when breath absorbs breath and exhaling absorbs breath. HA - is vowels. TCA - is consonant. HA - is consonant THA - is vowels. Hatha means mantra. Ha - it is right, Tha - is left. HA - is left, Tha - is right. Hatha means the middle. Ha - it is white, Tha - is red. Ha - this red, Tha - is white. Hatha means sky-blue. HA - aware of this, TCA - this act. HA - it means to act, TXA - aware. Hatha means to achieve higher results. Ha - voltage TXA - relaxation. HA - relaxation, TXA - voltage. Hatha - a way of life. HA - then push yourself, Tha - is to allow yourself. XA is to allow yourself, TCA is to force yourself. Hatha - to achieve the highest achievements in life.
Adya asked: How is it to be understood?
A friend said: This yoga you can do the exercises as a method of HA, and by TCA. You can practice all the exercises of yoga by the mother of wisdom - energy method, the method of sensations. Or his father's method of self-overcoming - by consciousness, by determination. In the treatises it says that just as the need for the child's birth mom and dad, as well, and for understanding the practice of Hatha Yoga should be practiced exercises and by energy - the mother and the method of consciousness - his father.
She said: The word Hatha can be explained as the union of thoughts and feelings, as a union of mothers and fathers, as a union of consciousness and energy, as a union of the left and right, as a union of vowels and consonants, as a union of night and day, as the union of inspiration and exhalation, as the Union descending and stay as Union forces and inaction, as the union of asceticism and pleasure, such as that lies between the extremes. Give up and you embody the extremes of hatha yoga. This is a great way of non-suffering and ignorance.
Adya asked: What does it mean to practice the exercises by female energy, and what it means to practice the method of the male mind?
She said: When you do the exercises continuously and without too much effort, when you give the feeling when you allow the energy to wake up in you, and in the right way by bending your body, do the exercises of Hatha yoga - this is called the maternal energy method, wisdom, experience. Not caring about the correctness of the exercise, some accept a pose and waits for the awakened energy of your body flex itself properly. Energy as a caring mother will lead you to achieve perfection. Trust the energy of the body, like his mother. This method of power, wisdom, feeling, female method.
She said: Now hear about men's method of consciousness when performing yoga. Perform each exercise for a limited time, even though it will be a time of inspiration. Strain all his will, making use of every effort, the inner eye vid itself is already a perfect yogi, to subdue his body. Max uses his will and determination. But do not hurt yourself. Transitions from pose to pose, like Shiva dancing. This method is called consciousness, by his father's efforts and determination, winning inertia and body imperfection.
Adya asked: How should acquire previously unknown postures and how to practice already known to pose?
A friend said: The wise say that the best place to start to learn postures energy method as a caring mother feeds a newborn baby, and energy method allows to establish themselves in the beginner yoga exercises. Let it will be at least one exercise per day. Then, as much as the baby mother breast-fed begins to see and play with Dad like this beginner yoga, one must also learn yoga by his father's mind.
She said: In everyday practice choose 5-7 exercises and do each of them, for at least 20-30 breaths, energy method. Or do during the same time the maximum number of postures of Hatha yoga, passing from one to another method of consciousness
She said if the yogi is already proficient in Hatha yoga, it can perform daily group exercises first energy methods, duration, and then all the same exercises by consciousness - a short time with the will and effort. This cute yogi can also use these two methods simultaneously. That is, to begin the exercise by power, surrendering to sensations and complete method of consciousness, forcing herself. Or vice versa begin to carry out the method of consciousness, forcing himself and finish the energy method, allowing yourself to enjoy the feeling of fulfillment. In future this nice yogi himself determines for himself what exercises to do by the mother energy, which his father's method of consciousness, and which exercises the two methods. But just this union of two methods the yogi achieves the final result in Hatha yoga. About Adya, is well aware of my words, and you will avoid many obstacles and traps in the way of Hatha Yoga and attain supreme happiness.
Adya said: You told me about the two methods of Hatha yoga exercises. Tell me about the negative aspects of each method.
She replied: Man practicing the yoga only energy method is prone to slide into inertia and passivity. If he practices only by consciousness, he slips into fanaticism, ie excessive activity and impose their views on others. Only between these two extremes is a narrow path to achieve higher results Hatha yoga, so wise and say, "Give up the extreme and you will achieve success." Uravnoves parent method by his father and be born as a perfect immortal Hatha Yogi. Once again, and once again think about it Adya. Refuse from the extremes, they have no effect.
"Now I will tell you about Bandha and wise ...."
147. Hear me, my student, a mysterious practice. As a person in vneoplatnom debt to their mother and father, as well as yoga to the grace of Shiva, who told them to this section. The human body is a great country in the heart of the country - Mount Meru. Everything revolves around it. In this country there are fields and forests, seas and rivers, there are creatures living in it, there dwell the deities and sages, there is the sun and the moon, constellations and planets, and much, much more. Yogi, as a skilled ruler, governs all this inner universe.
148. When the body - the country cleaned or during the cleaning process, should be used mudras and bandhas. Bandhas yogi stops the flow of energy in your body, and redirects them to another channel, like a river dam spans artfully created. As grower irrigate their fields, blowing reviver then one, then another of irrigation canals. Wise - it's gestures, gestures invitations that make manifest certain energy vibrations within the body, and beyond. Just as a gesture of the hand, we invite each other to enter into our house like this, reproducing a particular mudra, we invite a certain deity manifest in our inner world or outside of us in the universe. Each deity has its own inherent energy. Someone angry, someone is peaceful. For a deity manifested through the emanation of energy that causes a particular emotion or energy flow, both inside and outside of it. Wise student should know the necessary mudras and bandhas. It is a pledge of his victory.
149. Mudra and bandha should be kept a secret, you should not devote nondevotees people in them, greedy, those who do not respect the teachers, insidious and discreet and chatty and not practicing yoga. You should always respectfully refers to Siva, who told this science. Shiva said to study and wise bandh you need a secure, secluded, in every sense a favorable place where you will not disturb any neighbors or passers-by, no animals, no insects, no bad weather. But most importantly, you do not have to worry or your wife, or your children, or your friends and acquaintances. Place it should be a nice, safe, near a source of water and make it easy to produce their own food for sustenance. When reached perfection and mudras and bandha studied such severe restrictions are not necessary.
150. She said there are three groups bandh. The first group refers to the upper gates of the body, the second group to the lower gates of the body and the third group to the body. Mudra is there for the manifestation of energy mainly inside the body or outside. Combinations and combinations of various bandhas and mudras from different groups achieved a total energy of the awakening process and disclosure of comprehensive cosmic consciousness outside or inside. When there is no division of this or that, when the actions of the current object, and action process itself one inseparable one.
151. Wash your body, alone in her hut for practice Throw all my clothes sit on a mat on the ground and begin to practice the bandhas and mudras.
152. She said, in the lower part of the body below the navel and in the crotch area of Apana - is the energy responsible for the release of the body and its tendency to flow downward. In the upper part of the body in the area of light energy of prana, and its tendency to leave the body, flying up. The combination of these two energies is achieved yoga (union) you should mix the prana and apana. As a result of the clear nectar is born, the first drop which cures all diseases. Send it to the navel center and the energy enters the sushumna. From this Nadi tremble like leaves in the wind. So you, O student, must make Apana rise up and prana descend.
153. Now, listen of mula bandha. Nerodivy and respectful student once did not succeed in it. Before practicing mula bandha knowing makes preparatory exercises. Put your body to the navel in the warm clear water. Use a large and ring finger. Insert into your anus and cleanse the colon from all the dirt. Carefully rubbing her this finger.
