KarmYog Ashram Volunteer

Based on the teachings of:Mahacharya sourabh J sarkar

Mahacharya shri sourabh J sarkar was on Behtar Yatra with his KarmYogi team. This time he was guiding school students towards a Behtar Life. During his tour, he learnt about the famous Tryambakeshwar temple in the vicinity which he wanted to explore. His camera lead Sanchita was ecstatic about the ‘darshan’. So reaching the temple, he casually threw question at Sanchita- What is Darshan? How do you see what you see?

What was lingering as a question…was put to rest by the Man himself, at today’s satsang… Read on….

‘Darshan’ or the act of seeing….is a yogic phenomenon. The entire universe is conceived…perceived and grasped first by the primary act of ‘Darshan’. From the idol atop the mountains, to meeting your best friend…to the latest Sharukh flick and even the latest budget update…the act of engaging with everything around, is first through the primary act of seeing (Darshan). But …How do you see what you see?

In a world of convenient blur…

How do you clearly see?

HOW DO YOU SEE,

WHAT YOU SEE?

 

He explained, To SEE what we see, the parameters of Darshan must be worthy of the act.

“Darshan is the culmination of the three ‘D’s- Drashta, Drishya, Drishti.
Drashta is the beholder, the subject, the ‘purush’, or the one who ‘sees’.
Drishya is the sight, the object, the prakriti or what is ‘seen’
Drishti is what we call in hindi the ‘niyat’ or the ‘nazariya’”

 

It is important for the Drashta to develop a healthy ‘Tann’ ‘Praan’ ‘Mann’ ‘Chit’ to participate in the act. The Drishya to be nurtured in the lines of ‘Satyam’ ‘Shubham’ ‘Sundaram’ and Drishti to be aligned with the intent of the action. When this happens then…

You have seen…

Yet not seen before”

Mahacharyaji’s Mantra to Flex Your Praan Shakti

“Who are you?
What makes you, You?
Who am I?
What is my unique I am ness”

Our session today began with these mind baffling questions tossed at us by Mahacharyaji. ‘I am’ ness he explained derives from our whole being…precisely the four aspects of our being- TANN PRAAN MANN CHIT.

“Our Tann is at one extreme of the spectrum and chit on the other…
What joins both is the bridge of Praana”

Prana or the energetic dimension which wakes us up in the morning, carries us to work…nudges us to rest..in short takes us through life. While he was explaining all these…I couldn’t resist the temptation of asking- “…Praan Shakti Burhayekaise?.” I mean, we hit the gym to increase our muscle calibre, do cardio to power up our heart…but how do fortify Praan Shakti.

“Oxygen ahaar se…”

Well that’s precisely it. Mahacharyaji explained, just like any other form of energy. Praanshakti is a by-product of combustion.

“Fuel burns in oxygen to generate Shakti in our body”

Fuel? You guessed it right. Fuel is the food that we digest and oxygen is what we breathe in. Our respiratory system burns them to produce – praan Shakti.

“So you see the quality of your praan Shakti comes from: 1. What your burn (fuel) 2. How good your burn.”

umm…So… What is the SOP of going to sleep?What is the SOP after waking up? Well that’s for you to decide my friend.

“I wont give you a prescription
We all have to make our own vidhis…
our personal sanskars
And take the ‘sankalp’ to stick to it”

So according to Mahachryaji, to increase Praan Shakti, the trick is to eat right and breathe right. Coming to breathing right, do you know Pranleela is one of the advanced technique to flex your praan Shakti and it greatly benefits our nervous system.
