Panch Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya – Experiencing the Power of Tattvas!

Are you desiring to achieve a perfect state of physical, mental and emotional well being?

Do you wish to improve your relationship with self and others?

Do you yearn for spiritual growth & balance in life?

Normally such holistic growth requires one to enter in a spiritual path with complete dedication and spend huge amount of time with the able Master or Guru but neither everyone has so much of time nor everyone is ready to take the plunge.

If you too are looking for success, health and peace; If you are searching for answers in your life Panch Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya* is your answer.

Our whole being resonates with the rhythm of the universe. This unique amazing rhythm of the universe is created by the play of five elements also known as Panch Mahabhuta. The Five Great elements are not only supporting us on the gross level, but they are the foundation and basis of who and what we are. Our every thought and action arises from the play of these five elements and further affects them too. Working with the five elements simply means tending to the roots.  Panch Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya is an ancient Tantric Kriya that purifies and balances the five elements.

The Five Great elements are Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space. The Chakras in our body are the abode of the five elements. The Earth element (Prithvi) resides in Root Chakra (Muladhara). The Water element (Jal) resides in Sacral Chakra (Swadhisthana). The Fire element (Agni) resides in Solar Plexus (Manipura Chakra). The Air Element (Vayu) resides in Heart Chakra (Anahat) and Space element (Akasha) resides in Throat Chakra (Vishudh).

bliss3Health of the chakras determine our physical, mental and spiritual well being. Although the Chakras are a part of our energy body, but they are also connected to the various endocrine glands in the body. The endocrine glands release hormones directly into the blood influencing and controlling various aspects of growth, development and daily activities. When we start to work on the five elements with Panch Mahabhoot Shakti Kriya, the chakras are also cleansed and balanced. In turn they affect the related endocrine glands leading to better well being of the physical body. The physical body feels light and is completely de-stressed after practicing the Kriya.

Almost all physical and mental disturbances are caused due to blocks in our energy system. Our energy system is made up of Chakras and Nadis. If you feel sad, angry, irritated  and depressed most of the times, it is because of blocked energy channels leading to sluggish chakras. The breathing techniques done during Panch Mahabhoot Shakti kriya cleanse the nadi system and free you from negative emotions like anger, worry, anxiety and depression. Practicing the Kriya just once makes you feel happy and relaxed. Having a perfect emotional well being leads to more creative and prolific life.

bliss5

If you have been meditating for a long time or have just started to meditate, you must have certainly confronted the biggest hurdle that is of achieving a thoughtless state of mind. Every person who has practiced Panch Mahabhoot Shakti Kriya, have said to achieve that state. In exact words of a practitioner after practicing Kriya just once”First time in life I have felt so calm and focussed both at the same time while doing a practice. Although it was just for a few moments, but I know now what I am capable of” Achieving a state of thoughtlessness is dream of every meditator and by practicing Panch Mahabhoot Kriya you can surely achieve it.

bliss7

Revered Tantrika and Tattva Shakti Vigyaan propagator Ma Shakti says “If you really want to change things in your life do something about it. Through Panch Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya it is so possible only by giving few minutes daily to yourself. This Tantric Kriya starts re-wiring your life-energies by harnessing the power of Five great Elements. The positive impact of this restructuring becomes visible in all life situations, health, relationships in less than 3 months itself. Pancha Mahabhuta Shakti kriya** opens the further growth avenues for spiritual growth. ”

By giving just few minutes to Panch Mahabhoot Kriya daily you change your life forever. The effects are incredible and benefits are immense.

In the praise of Kama – The Expanded Meanings

Kama is the highest element. Human life is driven by Kama. In every action and emotion Kama is the undercurrent. Life is impossible without kama. Elevating the qualities and transcendence of kama is altogether different story. The region of Kama extends from bhoga (sense enjoyment) – lipsa (deep longing or desiring) to Yoga – Veepsaa (expansion or permeation). In Vedas Kama  has been called agni (fire).. The mantra is as under –

यो देवो विश्वाद् यमु काममाहुः
यं दातारं प्रतिगृहन्तमाहुः |

यो धीरः शक्रः परिभू अदाभ्यः
तेभ्यो अग्निभ्यो हुतमस्तु एतत् ||   (अथर्व 3/21/4)

यः देवः विश्व-आद् = That deity which keeps consuming (eating) all (everything)

यम् उ कामम् आहुः = That in full certainty is known as kama

यं दातारं प्रतिगृहन्तमाहुः = That entity is what engages in ‘giving’ and ‘receiving’

यः धीरः शक्रः परिभू अदाभ्यः = That who is patient, powerful and all pervading, the one what can not be won over and is immortal. अदाभ्यः – The one which can not be ignored or condemned and that which is insuppressible.

शक्रः – The who is able, capable, has power; is valiant and has forbearance = इन्द्र

तेभ्यः अग्निभ्यः हुतम् अस्तु एतत् = I offer aahuti (offering in fire) of my discourse in that fire of kama. In vedas the words agni (fire) and kama (the power of desiring.. not essentially sexual) has been interchangeably used.

Agni (fire) is an entity that burns. Kama also has that quality. The power to burn also lies in Surya (Sun) and therefore mandala (region) of surya is abode of kama. Surya is kama in it. Surya is kaami (the one who has kama). There is a story that Surya coupulated with Kunti (mother of Pandavas of Mahabharata) while she was a kanya (As per scriptures ‘kanya’ is a damsel in the age band where she should not be engaged with sexually but Surya did so. The guidelines of Scriptures are for humans not for Devas!) Without caring for the rules Surya Deva put his seed in the womb of Kunti and Karna (कर्ण ) was born. ( कृ हिंसायाम् कृणाति + नक् = कर्ण ) कर्ण – A violent and valiant warrior.

Agni (अग्नि) has been called shakra (शक्र), It is the name of Indra (इन्द्र). By this we can deduce that devas are potently kaamuka (desirous of everything including sexual desire). Kunti has 6 sons, all born of Devas. From Surya – Karna, from Dharma – Yudhishthir, from Vayu – Bheema, from Indra – Arjuna, from Naasatya – Nakula and from Dasra – Sahdeva. Amazing! Isn’t it? When Devas are upto this then what to say of Humans. Humans supercede Devas both in Bhoga and Yoga. My salutations to all Kami Individuals!

In the same mantra above Kama has been called vishwaada (विश्वाद् = the one which eats everyone or everything). Agni and Kama are the two sides of the same coin. The inner Agni (fire) is Kama and outer Kama is Fire. Till the time body has Agni (Fire, heat) kama pervails. As soon as the fire (warmth) goes from body the kama is gone and vice versa. As soon as kama intensifies in the body – the body gets heated (warmer). The agni  burns the body, log of woods and such materials but the kama  burns mana, buddhi and ahamkara. Man thinks that he is enjoying the bhogas (objects of pleasures) but in reality the bhogas consume (take in) the man. Bhogas stay as they are but the body becomes weak and fragile thus incapable of enjoying them. Bhogas then leave the body.. what is the capacity of human to leave the bhogas?

There are four type of creatures – Andaja, Pindaja, Udbhidja, Swedaja [अण्डज, पिण्डज (जरायुज), उद्भिद्ज, स्वेदज] and they all are under the control of kama. This srishti (The world and the activities of this world) in motion due to kama. Therefore Kama himself is Parameshwara. There is this shloka in the epic Mahabharata (Shanti Parva) –

यतः सर्वे प्रसूयन्ते ह्यनङ्गात्माङ्गदेहिनः |
उन्मादः सर्वभूतानां तस्मै कामात्मने नमः ||

यतः सर्वे प्रसूयन्ते – From which everything is born.

हि अनङ्ग् – आत्माङ्ग् – देहिनः – The one who without any doubt or hinderance does not have his own body but essentially uses body of every creature(s)/species as his own.

उन्मादः सर्वभूतानां – The one who lives as unmaada (blind but intense desiring, intoxication, pride, frenzy, highest pleasure etc.) in every creature.

तस्मै कामात्मने नमः – I bow down to that kaamatma param (ultimate) purusha (being).

Kama has been called ananga (अनङ्ग् ). Ananga means – Motionless, or formless, the one which does not move. This is surprising that an entity which does not move keeps this cosmos in play. In fact this is true. Word Anga (अंग) has been constructed by using two words i.e. Anga (अङ्ग) and Gatau (गतौ).  Hands, feet, mouth and even inner organs etc. have movement therefore these are anga. The one through which an action (or activity) is performed is called anga. Therefore the one from which no action is performed is called ananga [अन् (नञ) + अङ्ग  = अनङ्ग् ]. The activity happens through something having form. In our world whatever is perceivable can be treated as the cause of an activity. So if something is beyond perception it will have to be treated as ‘inactive’ or ineffective (exactly the same logic has been applied to reject the existence of God as the creator of this cosmos).  That inactive (imperceivable) entity or tattva is Kama. It is cause or trigger of activity. The element (entity) that causes activity is called ananga and the one through which (means) the activity is performed is called anga. The ‘activity’ (क्रिया) flows through the ‘means’ (करण) but ‘root cause/ trigger’ (प्रेरक) or the reason for the activity is the real ‘doer’ (कर्ता). Kama is the all pervading tattva. Any tattva that is all pervading can not be perceived to be moving. The one who is present everywhere need not travel (move) to reach some place because that is available at all places. Like Akasha like kama. Akasha is inside and also outside in the same way kama is present inside every object and outside all the time. The one which has anga (organ or means of activity, or with a form) can not be all pervading. Only ananga can be all pervading. I bow down to that ananga!

It is my honour to place above the literal translation of 
understanding given by Veda-Guru paramhamsa Shri ‘Aatharvan’ 
Ji Maharaj. The permission to translate his works in English was 
given by Guruvar in 2016 itself.. but due to my various engagements 
it could not begin earlier. This Chaitra Navaratri of 2019 I have 
finally taken up the himalayan task of translating his works in
English language as per his wish so that non-hindi people and even 
westerners can taste the divine nectar of his profound understanding 
of Vedas. I must say that all the substance and great teachings 
in this text are of His and in this translation if there are any 
mistakes those have to be mine. In reverence I humbly bow down to 
divinity in Gurudev for his personal guidance.

Menstrual Hygiene Day- Keep yourself clean energywise

Truly in the praise of womanhood when Ma Shakti says “You are not the untouchable during those days but others are for you…!”
Shivoham!

Tattva Shakti Vigyaan

In the praise of Womanhood! 

Today is  International Menstrual Hygiene Day, which came into existence in 2014 to bring awareness regarding menstrual hygiene. Yes, this is a very important issue and needs a great force to bring in this awareness. The world is coming together on various platforms to address this issue by organizing events, rallies and even concerts.

We are today thinking of bringing awareness on the hygiene part of menstruation but there are still questions about menstrual impurity and cultural bondage’s that comes with it. Women today are getting aware and want to know why is it that they are considered impure during the five days of periods. Many women have somehow just accepted this fact that there is something wrong with their bodies during this period and therefore keep on questioning on what they can do and what they cannot. And one more important question that…

Agni Upanishad – In the praise of divine fire (यज्ञभावनम्-2)

.
Shivoham!
.
Yagya (yajna) revolves around the entity called Agni or fire and this sacred fire is said to be the soul of the yajna. The ritualistic yajna came into existence only when the fire was discovered (produced) by human beings. The beginning and end of this very life is in yajna. Yajna is the expansion of life. In deva-yajna (divine) there are great pleasant aromas and in daitya-yajna (demonic) there are foul, bad smells. In paishaach-yajna there is excess (mostly only smoke) of smoke and there is lack of light and flames. Smoking of cigarettes, hookah, bidi  etc. is paishaach-yajna. In this you get smoke, bad smell and pollution. In this there is destruction and only destruction. Motor bikes, vehicles emitting smoke is also representative of paishaach-yajna. The fruit (result) of such yajna  is dominance of sourness (unhappiness, negativity and destruction) with very little sweetness (goodness and positivity). This paishaachic-yajna of kaliyuga is so much prevalent that knowingly or unknowingly is it happening everywhere and is being done by almost everyone.
.
There is no possibility of life without yajna. The yajna is giver of life and it can even take away life. Wherever there is yajna there is fire (agni). Wherever there is fire there is yajna. This ‘yajna’ has infinite forms (ways/types) because fire (agni) is of infinite forms (anantmoorti). But the yajna where mantras of rishis are used is known as agnihotra. The aahutis offered with the mantras ‘bhooyaasama ( भूयासम्  )’ is proper agnihotra. The one who does this type of yajna is called agnihotri (अग्निहोत्री ). Below here the Agni-upanishad is being cited.. There are mantras also using which an initiated one can do agnihotra on daily basis and attain all the four purusharthas.

There are innumerable benefits or Yajna and in my next post I shall write about them.. even enlightenment can be attained with this divine process of yajna.

Shivoham!

– Acharya Agyaatadarshan Anand Nath 
Just as mantras, mudras, kriyas and sankalpa etc. are
the tools given in Tattva Shakti Vigyaan Sadhana; The
Yajna is the most powerful tool available in Vedic
system. Gurudev Shri Aatharvan ji Maharaj who became
enlightened through the agnihotra sadhana & Suryopasana
proudly tells that he is a humble worshipper of the 
Fire (agni) and it became possible only by the divine
grace of Agni(Deva) himself.

Understanding the secrets of Yajna! (यज्ञभावनम्-1)

यज्ञ, Yajna or Yagna is a mysterious process. It is much more than just burning certain grains, herbs, solids or fluids in the fire-pit.. The act done in prescribed time with specific mantras coupled with deep intentions of benevolence brings about unbelievable manifestations in the material world. There are innumerable hidden divine forces (deities) that accept the havya and somehow convert this energy into material objects. The science of Yajna is almost lost in the times but in our Gurumandala we have it intact.

Tattva Shakti Vigyaan

The following post by Acharya Agyaatadarshan Anand Nath ji captures the exact understanding as given by VedaGuru Shri Atharvan ji. On one hand SadhGurudev Shri ‘Atharavan’ elaborates on the principles of yajna on the other he simplifies it for the ordinary man. Gurudev  Shri says “Just as rivers flow towards and merge in the ocean, just as every drop from cloud falls on earth, in the same way only due to grace of Lord almighty the rays of deep secrets of Rishis shine in my heart and I humbly imbibe that knowledge in my personal life and disseminate for all.”
Describing the simplest process of a powerful yajna he goes on to say “Nurturing a lamp’s flame – keeping it uninterrupted, continuously is an eternal yajna. Wherever it happens that place becomes the abode of divine energies (shakti-peetha). In my place we have two flames that are uninterrupted…

Can I practice Shambhavi Mahamudra with SriVidya Sadhana?

 

Respected Guru,
I would like to know if it is good to continue shambavi mahamudra of inner engineering exercise of ISHA yoga,along with my Sri vidya sadhana. I am not a regular practitioner of shambavi. I took the program in 2013 due to chronic back ache (which I had been having for around six months due to a muscle strain, not slipped disc ) . On practicing for 2 weeks my back pain disappeared, I also felt lighter with more energy. but I did not practice it regularly for some reason. I practiced it off and on, whenever I felt very low on energy or I started my back muscles aching. Till date I haven’t had any problems while doing the shambavi Maha mudra.

I started Sri vidya last guru poornima (July 2018). My guru told me to not do any other yoga techniques and just follow my sadhana. At the most, I can do surya NAMASKAR if I wanted to, he said.

I just wanted to know if there is any harm in doing shambavi of Isha yoga because once a while my back starts aching and that’s when I do shambavi for a week or two.

I have read the articles on this site about pranayam and its dangers and also readers experiences of Sudarshan Kriya. Couldn’t find anything about Isha yoga practices specifically though it does contain breathing exercises. I just wanted to do the shambavi for a few days till my back ache goes away. Is it harmful for me and my sadhana? Please let me know.


Yours Sincerely,

Dr NIRMAL RAJ

Shivoham!

Dr. Niramal Raj,
There may be 1001 reasons for something to be done or not but I prefer to answer the questioner rather than the question and thus my observations are as following.

Your message begins with addressing me as ‘Guru’ but the truth is I am not your Guru. You are probably displaying your respect and humility through these words and I accept that yet I would suggest you save this word to gracefully address your Guru and try not using this word anyone else other than your Guru. Now to your issues and question.

You seem to be suffering from stress related issues and your back pain is linked to your stress levels. This process that you mentioned just relieves you of the stress and you feel better. The particular process you are engaged in has some asanas, nadishodhan (alternate nostril breathing with of without hold), chanting of pranava (aumkara) with Mudra (specific hand gesture), Bhastrika (fast breathing with focus on exhalation) followed by Baahya (outer) and Antara (inner) Kumbhakas (hold) while holding Bandhas (the yogic muscular locks) and relaxed awareness of few minutes at the end.

Looking at the overview and rough structure of the process you can also clearly see that the sequence is not involving any major works in the spiritual dimension except one small period of chanting i.e. one generic seed mantra. Primary this process (mahamudra as you call it) is about relieving mental and bodily stress. I am sure it would be effectively delivering its desired results provided one follows the taught sequence. However I can tell you there is NOTHING spiritual about it but still it can surely help you relieve pain and stress etc.

Having said that as a practitioner of a Sri Vidya, a Tantric system that is received only through initiation (initiation is direct passage divine spiritual grace through the Guru) is much greater, probably the greatest (if your tantric practice is received in unbroken lineage with adept Guru’s promise to handhold one’s disciple) spiritual practices available to the mankind and only through this all purusharthas are achievable. Maybe you don’t know but here in this system your Guru is no other than embodiment of Shiva himself. Thus respect and follow the laid down rule : In case of any doubts you should consult your Guru and follow his instructions verbatim.

Dr. Nirmal, I do understand the pain of a modern day disciple. It  is common to see Gurus not being available for further guidance after the grand deekshas (initiations) are over. Such behaviour on the part of a teacher is not only unethical and inappropriate but against the rules laid down in Tantric scriptures. If such is not the case then contact your Gurudev and share your issues with him and do whatever he suggests. His word should be final not mine.

In the praise of Kama! (कामबोधनम्)

Aum namah!

On the horizon the Earth is embracing Akasha. Rivers are mating with ocean. Creepers are embracing trees. Electric currents are getting entwined with clouds. At dawn and dusk day and night are merging in one another. Males and females are attracted and bound to each other. Meditator is eager to merge in the object of meditation. The power or shakti due to which all this is happening is called kama (काम).

Mother is feeding her child keeping close to her breasts. Cow is feeding and licking her calf. Earth is revolving around dancing on its axis. All the planets are joyously dancing in their respective orbits. Giant clouds are roaring like they are playing kettledrums. Lightning streaks, like beautiful maidens are shining and flashing in their dance. Leaves are swinging and singing in puffy blows of air. Flower-laden trees are smiling and giggling. Chirping birds singing in the praise of that eternal power, the Shakti or Mahamaya as we call her. The tone of the force through which this all is happening is called kama.

To obtain which Parvati conducted herself through great penance, that Shiva-Tattva is kama. For which Sita abandoned Ayodhya and followed Rama to the forest, that is Kama. The emotion overpowered by which Indra violated Ahilya, the wife of Gautam rishi is kama.

Motivated by which force the great Muni Parashar impregnated the womb of Matsyagandha, the daughter of a fisherman to give birth to great Muni, Vedavyaasa; that force is kama. The power that motivated rishi Vishwamitra to copulate with heavenly beauty (elf), Menakaa to give birth to a girl child, Shakuntala; the power that made the Mitra and Varuna to ejaculate upon seeing the beauty of Urvashi giving birth to Agastya and Vashishta is kama. The power due to which the non-dual reality (brahman) take the duality in – Akasha-Prithvi, Fire-Soma, Rama-Janaki, Shiva-Parvati, Vishnu-Laxmi, Brahma-Vani, Indra-Shachi, Atri-Anusooya, Purush-Prakriti, Man-Woman, Brahm-Maya is kama. Due to its quality of extensiveness kama is also called Tada (तद् ).

[ तद् = तन् तनोति + क्विप् नस्य दः ]

The element that grows, expands itself, becomes extensive is Tad (तद् ). Thus every particle in universe is filled with Kama. Every body is filled with kama. Kama outside.  Kama inside. Kama ahead, Kama behind. Kama near you and Kama is at far distances. Here and there.. everywhere it is the kingdom of Kama. There is this sentence in upanishad.

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तदन्तिके |
तदन्तरस्य सर्वस्य तदु सर्वस्यास्य बाह्यतः ||
.
Having derived the essence of Tad (तद् ) as Kama the meaning of above is –
.
तदेजति  Kama moves. तन्नैजति Kama is still (does not move). तद्  दूरे  Kama is far, तद्  Kama  is near. तद् अन्तरस्य सर्वस्य तद् उ सर्वस्य अस्य बाह्यतः Everything exists within and outside Kama.
.
Kama is divine and worthy of our worship.

  • We bow down to that kama due to power of which adolescent boys and girls lose their self-control.
  • Salutations to that kama due to which a woman, moving in the cycles of fertility raises the fire of a man and then dowses that off.
  • Salutations to that kama which has power to pull down a person from his place and dignity.
  • We bow down to the power that pushes the man in the endless cycle of luring, serving, using and abusing the woman.
  • We bow down to the power of the kama that drives a man to seeking and keeps a disciple attached to the chosen path of worship, deity & Guru.
Vishwakaamaaya namah!
विश्वकामाय नमः!
Shivoham! 
– Acharya Agyaatadarshan Anand Nath
It is my honour to place above the literal translation of understanding given
by Veda-Guru paramhamsa Shri ‘Aatharvan’ Ji Maharaj. The permission to
translate his works in English was given by Guruvar in 2016 itself.. but due
to my various engagements it could not begin earlier. This Chaitra Navaratri
I have finally taken up the himalayan task of translating his works in English
as per
his wish so that non-hindi people and even westerners can taste the
divine
nectar of his profound understanding of Vedas. In reverence I humbly
bow down to divinity in him and for his personal guidance.
