Description

Preface:

The hamsa yoga or soaham sadhana is crowned in the Indian scriptures as the paramount spiritual endeavor that enables natural conjunction of the individual consciousness and the Brahm. Despite being superior in terms of its culminated effects, this sadhana is easiest and free from the ascetic disciplines and difficult practices of yoga that are associated with other higher level spiritual sadhanas. The treatise of Sabda Brahm-Nada Brahm (volume 19 of "Pt. Shriram Sharma Acharya Vangmaya" Series) devotes one full chapter to this important topic. The present book is compiled from the English translation of this invaluable text.

Meditation on the sounds of "soa" and "ham" - produced continuously by the harmonized inhalation and exhalation in each breathing cycle during a pranayama - is practised in the initial phase of the hamsa yoga. The hakara (sound of "ha" ) is regarded as a manifestation of God Shiva in the cosmic energy currents of prana and sakara (the sound of "sa" ) represents the existence of the eternal power of thy super consciousness in the spiritual impulse of prana. The surya swara (through the solar nerve) is awakened by hakara and the candra swara (through the lunar nerve) by sakara. These swaras are harmonized in the higher level pranayama of the hamsa yoga. The contemplation phase of this sadhana involves total sacrifice of the ego and dissolution of the identity of the "Self" in the supreme consciousness-expression of the Brahm.

The soaham sadhana enables realization of theNada Yoga through Prana Yoga. The science and philosophy of this sadhana is also discussed here in the special context of the ajapa japa of the Gayatri Mantra and the Kundalini Sadhana. The author has been thorough, yet lucid in discussing this esoteric field of the science of spirituality and yoga. He also provides trenchant guidance for practising this prana-yoga in day-to-day life. The fundamental importance of the subject and the detailed and authentic knowledge presented in a perspicuous style make this book a precious asset in the scholarly disciplines and a milestone for all aspirants of the realization and illumination of the individual Self.

About the Author:

Shriram Sharma Acharya, a pioneer of spiritual renaissance was born on 20th September 1911, in Anwalkheda, Agra District. He scrupulously carried out the biddings of his Guru, a great Himalayan Yogi, when he was fifteen years of age.

Testimonials
Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
