Yoga meditations have a goal of realization of the union of the individual and the universe. It is a Hindi practice of bodily, intellectual and religious order. Here the mind activities can be mastered to reach ideal condition of religious insight and transcendence.
There are practices used to help people attain this state of mind. One such is the tantra of the Sahaja. This tantra seeks to enable people awaken the kundalini, which can help them find self realization which is full of peace, joy and love.
Kundalini is described as a spiritual and maternal energy which can be found in the latent status in the triangular sacrum bone at the lowe end of the spine. The energy can always be awakened by a process of enlightenment, where the kundalini moves up the central channel, causing a feeling of a cool, or in the case of imbalance, lukewarm breeze crosses the palm and sole of the feet. When the energy is awakened, it automatically purifies the subtle system thus dispelling all mental, physical and spiritual diseases.
The benefits of this tantra are seen when ones face becomes radiant, looks much younger and ultimately they become conferred to the status of divine union. The kundalini is believed to be the actual state of reflection. As such, all other tantras rest on its awakening.
Raja meditations have a foundation on the soul as being the point of light. It seeks to help one understand the self and mind. Here the soul has three main faculties, namely the brain or consciousness, the intellect and the subconscious.
This tantra shows how thoughts from the subconscious mind flow to the conscious mind, as well as feelings and emotions associated with these thoughts. Thus the state of mind at any given time is governed by these thoughts. An individual can thus through meditation and deep contemplation, control these thoughts so that only positive ones are what they have in mind.
The end result is thus a constant state of well being. These are just a few of the many tantras available for people seeking to unite with the divine. There are also physical poses associated with yoga.
These are known as asanas. Here one excepts a certain seated posture for meditation. Objects, as well as mantras are then used to achieve a state of mind calmness. Whichever method one prefers, yoga meditations have a goal of helping people attain physical benefits as well as mental stability.family, fitness, health, Meditation, metaphysical, self improvement, Yoga
