Marilena Shyama Shakti

“Prana is Spandana or vibration. When all this universe shall have resolved back into its primal state, what becomes of this infinite force? Do they think that it becomes extinct? Of course, not. If it became extinct, what would be the cause of the next wave, because the motion is going in wave forms, rising, falling, rising again, falling again?”
~ Swami Vivekananda, Advaita Vedanta

ΜΑΘΗΜΑ 1

Το πρόγραμμα μας αυτό θεωρείτε συνέχιση σπουδών, για εμβάθυνση, κατανόηση και αυτογνωσία. Δεν είναι εκπαίδευση εξειδίκευσης. Χρειάζεται χρόνος να αφομοιωθούν όσα πήρατε πέρσι στα μαθήματα, να εφαρμοστούν σταδιακά, να αποκτηθεί βιωματική εμπειρία και στη πορεία εξελίσσοντας εσάς, και εμβαθύνοντας στο δρόμο σας, έρχονται όλα σταδιακά. 

Η γίογκα οποιουδήποτε μονοματιού ή συστήματος είναι μια διαδρομή αυτογνωσίας, αυτοανακάλυψης, μέσα απο τη πρακτική και αγάπη σε αυτό επι της ουσίας και όχι της ιδέας.

Σας προσκαλώ λοιπόν με αγάπη να αγκαλιάσετε τον εαυτό σας ακούγοντας, μελετώντας, εφαρμόζοντας και συνθέτοντας τη ζωή σας, με τρόπο που να εξάγεται το καλύτερο από τον δικό σας αόρατο εσωτερικό κόσμο και δυνατότητες.

ΠΡΑΚΤΙΚΗ

  • επι τόπου βηματάκια
  • ζεστά χέρια και τοποθετούμε στο λαιμό & αυχένα
  • ζεστά χέρια και τοποθετούμε στους μαστούς

Η επίγνωση και παρατήρηση ττου εαυτού μας είναι το κλειδί στην εφαρμογή. Με ευγένεια και καλοσύνη στις ανάγκες μας και στα ευρύματα μας, χωρίς επίκριση και τιρωρητικό τρόπο. Έτσι διαμορφώνουμε καλή σχέση με εμάς και γίνεται κίνητρο για να συνεχίσουμε την αυτοβελτίωση μας.

ŚARĪRA TRAYA ~ 3 BODIES

Śarīra, Traya, means ‘three bodies’ and is the Doctrine of the Three bodies in Hinduism, the human being is composed of three Śarīras or “bodies” emanating from Brahman by avidya, “ignorance” or “nescience”. They are often equated with the five koshas (sheaths), which cover the atman. It is an important doctrine in Indian Philosophy and Spirituality that includes Vedanta, Yoga, Tantra, and Meditation.

SŪKṢMA (PURUṢĀRTHA) ŚARĪRA ~ SUBTLE BODY

It is made up of five subtle elements. Also, five sense organs (Pancha Jnanendriya) are its components. The eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and skin are the five sense organs. When we refer to sense organs, we mean the subtle perception and not the physical part of it. For example, the physical eyes belong to the gross body, whereas the power of seeing belongs to the subtle body.

Tantra, like other schools, accepts PURUṢĀRTHA ŚARĪRA through the four goals of human life as natural and proper:

  1. Dharma: the right way to life, the “duties and obligations of the individual toward self and the society as well as those of the society toward the individual”
  2. Artha: the means to support and sustain one’s life
  3. Kāma: pleasure and enjoyment
  4. Mokṣa: liberation, release.

In SŪKṢMA-ŚARĪRA ~ SUBTLE BODY there are 3 koshas: 

  1. Prāṇamayakośa (the vital sheath)
  2. the Manomayakośa (the mental sheath)
  3. the Vijñānamayakośa (the sheath of intellect)

A. MATERIAL. Scriptures say that Subtle Body is born out of subtle Matter, which in turn is composed of 5 subtle elements. Just as there are 5 gross elements, there are corresponding 5 subtle elements:

  • Subtle Space
  • Subtle Air
  • Subtle Fire
  • Subtle Water
  • Subtle Earth

So even though the elements are subtle, the subtle body is material in nature.

B. COMPONENTS. The Subtle Body has 19 instruments of experience:

  1. The 5 Sense Organs Of Knowledge. There are 5 sense organs of knowledge: eyes, ears, nose, tongue & skin. By sense organs we do not mean physical organs which belong to the physical body. We are referring to the subtle power of perception. The subtle body is the instrument of perception. The points on the physical body where sense perception seems to occur are not the actual sense organs. Perception is only possible when the mind is behind the sense organ. The eyes may be open but the visual data received from the eyes will have no meaning if the mind is day dreaming or occupied elsewhere.
  2. The 5 Organs Of Action. Where the first 5 organs of knowledge are meant to perceive the world, the next 5 instruments are organs of action meant to respond to the world. These 5 organs of action are: speech, hands, legs, anus & genitals.
  3. The 5 Pranas. The next 5 instruments are called the five-fold Prana (Life force). Prana controls the activities of the 10 organs of knowledge & action. Prana is also responsible for the health & vitality of the body. The 5 Pranas are:
  • Prana – The respiratory system.
  • Apana – Responsible for any sort of waste removal from the body.
  • Vyana – Responsible for circulating oxygen & nutrition throughout the body.
  • Samana – Responsible for converting food into nutrition.
  • Udana – Operates the reversing system at the time of death when all processes of the body are reversed because it is time for the body to die. It also ejects the Subtle Body from the Gross Body at the time of death. Udana also handles the reversal function at the time of emergencies.

C. The 4 Internal Organs

The last 4 instruments are the 4 internal organs of the Subtle Body. These are the Mind, Intellect, Memory & Ego. These 4 internal organs can also be collectively called the Mind, or Antahkaranam in Sanskrit.

  1. Mind (Manas) – Mind stands for the emotional faculty in the Subtle Body, the feeling function, or what we call the “heart”. The mind also integrates the various sense perceptions received from the organs of knowledge and passes them on to the intellect. It also relays instruction from the intellect to the organs of action. Another function of the mind is to act as the doubting faculty.
  2. Intellect (Buddhi) – We can call the intellect as the rational faculty or the judging faculty or the knowing faculty or the reasoning faculty. The intellect gathers knowledge, remembers, analyses, inquiries into problems and discriminates. From the enlightenment perspective intellect is the most important aspect of the subtle body since liberation is nothing but removal of ignorance from the intellect.
  3. Memory (Citta) – The function of memory is to receive and record our experiences. The sense data received from all 5 organs of knowledge are stored in the memory. Sometimes even memories from past lives can be remembered by the mind.
  4. Ego (Ahamkara) – When awareness seemingly forgets its limitless nature and identifies with the Subtle and Gross Body and creates a secondary and limited identity which it calls “I”. This “I” is called the Ego. The term Ego can be a very misleading term. In the modern spiritual world, the term Ego can mean a lot of things.

D. FUNCTION. The function of the Subtle Body is to transact with the world using these 19 instruments.

These are the steps:

  1. The 5 organs of knowledge receive sense data from their counterparts in the Gross Body. This sense data is passed on to the Mind.
  2. The Mind integrates the sense data and passes it to the intellect for analysis and decision making.
  3. The Mind also stores the sense data in Memory.
  4. The Intellect analyses the sense data. It also retrieves past experiences, past decisions and things previously learned, from Memory, to help in decision making.
  5. The decision arrived at is passed to the Mind and also stored in Memory for future use.
  6. The Mind parses the decision and instructs appropriate organs of action to respond to the external world.
  7. When all this is happening the Ego plays a very peculiar function. The Ego is responsible for the “I sense” within us. When the stimuli is received from the external world by the organs of knowledge, it is the Ego which causes us to believe that “this is happening to me”. And when the organs of action respond, it is the Ego which causes us to think “I am doing this”.

E. NATURE

There are 3 features of the Subtle Body:

  1. The Subtle Body is also subject to change. The instruments of the Subtle Body can improve or weaken.
  2. The Subtle Body has a longer life compared to the Gross Body. The Gross Body exists for only one birth, whereas the Subtle Body continues into future lives as well. Bodies after bodies are changed but the Subtle Body continues. That is why we are able to sometimes remember past life events. The Karma from past lives is also carried forward because of the continuity of the Subtle Body. The Subtle Body continues until the dissolution of the Universe (Pralaya) where it gets dismantled.
  3. The Subtle Body is only evident to myself, not others. Only I can know my thoughts and feelings, not others. Because it is only available to me and not others, it’s called the Subtle Body.
MANOMAYA KOSHA

MANOMAYA KOSHA, the mental energy sheath, is even more extensive and powerful than the Prānamaya Kosha. Its scope is infinite. The mind and thoughts can reach anywhere without any loss of time. Therefore, it is very difficult to control the thoughts.

Vedanta philosophy coined the saying: MANO MĀTRA JAGAT – “The whole world exists in your mind.”

Innumerable levels and worlds exist in the mind of each individual. Every thought, every idea and every feeling form a separate world for itself.

Only through controlling the mind can we gain control over our destiny! The best method of mastering the mind is to foster good thoughts and qualities. Following the rules of YAMA and NIYAMA, understanding, giving, praying and practising Mantra purify our karmic phenomena. (The Chakras Network)

Manomayakosha belongs to the SŪKṢMA (PURUṢĀRTHA) ŚARĪRA ~ SUBTLE BODY. It is the “self” having Prāṇamayakośa as its body. The organs of knowledge and the mind form this kosha which is the cause of the sense of the “I” and of the “mine” and of the varying conceptions. It creates difference of names etc., because organs of knowledge are dependent on and determined by the mind which is of the nature of determination and doubt. It is powerful because bondage and liberation depend on the mind which producing attachment binds a person and which by creating aversion for them liberates them from that self-made bondage. It pervades the Prāṇamayakośa. It is the sacrificial fire, the five organs are the priests who pour into this fire the oblations of sense-objects, which fire fuelled by various Vāsanā (mental imprints) burns out the world created and expanded by the mind that when fouled by rajas (“projection”) and tamas (“concealment”) superimposes the Saṃsāra (the concept of reincarnation or rebirth) but when free of rajas and tamas can bring about the state of being established in Brahman.

Manomaya means composed of manas or mind. The mind, along with the five sensory organs, is said to constitute the Manomayakośa. The Manomayakośa, or “mind-sheath” is said more truly to approximate to personhood than Annamayakośa and Prāṇamayakośa. It is the cause of diversity, of I and mine.(WIKIPEDIA)

The Mind Sheath refers to the psychological functions in a Jīva. Emotions, doubts, the feeling function belongs to the Mind Sheath.

This sheath is also called Icchā Shakti or Desire / Will Power. Icchā stands for desire OR energy of will, and Shakti means power.

Kriyā Shakti (Action Power) is preceded by Icchā Shakti (Desire / Will Power), because desire and will prompts one to act. Therefore the Mind Sheath pushes the Vital Air Sheath to act.

The sheath consists of:

  1. The 5 organs of Knowledge.
  2. Mind, Memory and Ego of the 4 internal organs

MINDFULNESS ~ ΕΝΣΥΝΕΙΔΗΤΟΤΗΤΑ

Επίγνωση: πλήρης, σαφής και ακριβής γνώση σχετικά με κατι, συναίσθηση.

Eνσυνείδητα.: που υπάρχει ή συμβαίνει στη συνείδηση ή που γίνεται με επίγνωση· συνειδητός/ή. Ενσυνείδητη πράξη / ενέργεια / συμπεριφορά.

Συνειδητός -ή -ό: που γίνεται με επίγνωση, σκόπιμα και νηφάλια. Κάτι για το οποίο έχουμε συνείδηση, πλήρη αντίληψη. Παράδειγμα: Συνειδητή ενέργεια / προσπάθεια. 

Προσοχή: στροφή του νου σε ένα ερέθισμα (διανόημα, εντυπώσεις κτλ.) ενδιαφέρον, περίσκεψη, σύνεση, επιμέλεια, φροντίδα.

Η προσοχή είναι ο πιο σημαντικός πόρος που έχουμε. Γιατί από την προσοχή αρχίζουν όλα. Αν δεν μπορούμε να επικεντρώσουμε την προσοχή μας κάπου, τότε δεν μπορούμε να κάνουμε τίποτα. Δεν μπορούμε να διαβάσουμε, να παρακολουθήσουμε μια συνομιλία, να εργαστούμε, να δουλέψουμε, να αλλάξουμε. Η προσοχή είναι αυτή που μας δίνει τη δυνατότητα να αντιλαμβανόμαστε : τον έξω κόσμο, τις σκέψεις μας, τα συναισθήματά μας τις πράξεις μας. Η προσοχή και οι εμπειρίες από τη ζωή μας είναι στενά συνδεδεμένες.
Αν συνέχεια βάζουμε την προσοχή μας στο πόσο δύσκολα είναι τα πράγματα, στις ανησυχίες, τότε τα νευρωνικά δίκτυα στον εγκέφαλό μας που αφορούν τις δυσκολίες ενδυναμώνονται. Αν βάζουμε την προσοχή μας στην ευγνωμοσύνη ή στην αυτοπεποίθηση τότε δημιουργούνται νευρωνικά δίκτυα στον εγκέφαλο μας και ενδυναμώνονται χαρακτηριστικά που αφορούν την ευγνωμοσύνη, τη συμπόνια, την αισιοδοξία. Η προσοχή μας είναι πολύ ευαίσθητη. Ο νους μας συνεχώς αποσπάται και πηδάει από το ένα πράγμα στο άλλο. Διαβάζουμε ένα mail και σταματάμε για να κοιτάξουμε το κινητό μας. Μιλάμε με κάποιον και κοιτάμε αλλού γιατί ξαφνικά κάτι άλλο τράβηξε την προσοχή μας.

Being Still 

We’re addicted to movement. We get uncomfortable when our minds are asked to stand still, to do nothing, to wait, to listen, to rest. Mindfulness and meditation help us notice how much we habitually chase distraction, and help teach us to get more comfortable with stillness. The problem with distraction is that it takes us away from the present moment, the only place in which it’s possible to experience true happiness and contentment. When we’re always chasing things, happiness is always somewhere out there – away from where we are. When we’re present, quiet and still, we open ourselves to the possibility of recognizing that where we are is pretty good. It’s in the stillness that we’re able to see the true nature of our minds, and we’re able to recognize that true nature as one of contentment and joy. We can work with mindfulness of stillness both on and off our meditation cushions. Below is a brief exercise to calm the mind in meditation, and another to try as you go about your day.

Being Still Mindfulness Meditation

  • Take a comfortable seat in the most quiet place you can find, far from distractions
  • Set a timer for 3, 5 or 7 minutes
  • Close your eyes and draw your attention to your breath
  • Give yourself permission to rest, to do nothing, to simply be still
  • Rest in the presence of breath and body awareness
  • Each time you notice the ‘doing’ of future thinking, or the ‘doing’ of rumination on the past, remind yourself that you have permission to let it go, to stay present, to rest
  • Feel your mind relax back into the freedom of spaciousness
  • Let your mind take a break and rest in a sense of ease

Being Still Tasks

  • Try the following as you go about your day…
  • Do only one thing at a time, avoid multitasking
  • Notice how often during your day you get the opportunity to do nothing
  • Can you take advantage of these moments and do less?
  • Notice when you fill space with mindless or busy-ing activity
  • Notice when you fill space in your mind by thinking
  • How often, outside of formal meditation, do you just sit and notice and listen.
