Are You Giving 100% in Your Spiritual Endevours?

Preparations you MUST do before starting Yoga and Pranayama!

||Acharya Agyaatadarshan||

||Acharya Agyaatdarshan||


I started kapalbhati day before yesterday, after doing around 30 breathouts a bad headache started and it almost ran till yesterday noon, even today after kapalbhati I’m experiencing headache. Please help me.
Waiting for your email.
Megha CA
Beloved Megha.
You shall find varied opinions about whether to do Kapalbhati or Bhastrika Pranayams right from day one or not but I have firm conviction based on the experiences of thousands of people that it is not advisable to engage in any fast/rigorous breathing techniques/pranayams of Kriyas without having completed preparation.
If you are courageous and patient enough to follow my advice, here it goes –
1. Stop the practice of Kapalbhati/Bhastrika etc.
2. First of all work on these things for 3-4 weeks –
 a. Aahaara Shuddhi
 b. Vihaara Shuddhi
 c. Shareera Shuddhi
Aahaara suddhi – Means having light and digestible Veg food. Avoiding multiple meals (unless you have been suggested by your dietitian for some reasons). And also take lots of fresh juices, salads and sprouts.
Vihaara Shuddhi – Means bringing discipline in your routine. Avoiding contact with people who gossip, bitch around and are into any kind of addictions. Sleeping and getting up on time (Leave the bed at sunrise). Having your food well in time especially in the evening (minimum 2 hours before you go to bed).
Shareea Shuddhi – Try releasing toxins by drinking water (2-3 glasses) early in the morning. This water should be drunk before everything in the morning. Do some physical workout (you may do some simple asanas.. I recommend 5-10 rounds of Surya Namaskara) to trigger sweating. Give your body comforting oil-massage (once or twice in week is ok) and sun-bath (daily or minimum alternate days for 50 minutes). This will strengthen and purify your body. Drink lots of water during the day (close to 5 liters) One thing along with this Shareera Shuddhi which you need to engage yourself in, is ‘Yogic Breathing’ or most commonly referred as ‘Abdominal Breathing’ – Through this kind of breathing you are able to achieve two things – i) Your lungs’ capacity improves ii) You will partially unload your body of finer toxins.
3. After having completed these shuddhis (which should happen in 3-4 weeks) – Now you are ready to engage in Alternate Nostril breathing. Warn you – ONLY ALTERNATE NOSTRIL BREATHING. This alternate nostril breathing (this is not nadi-shodhan.. it is anulom-vilom) is capable of giving you 70 to 80% benefit of all so called Pranayam practices without injuring your nadi system. And please remember you don’t need to practice any other pranayama. This is enough for you if your aim is only to gain physical and mental fitness through Yoga. If you wish to awaken your spiritual energies and your age is above 28 years then Yoga may not be suitable way – try Tantra!
If you want to move further then this Final step goes without saying.. Find a teacher who follows authentic Vedic Yoga system and learn more. Which means that he will train in holding (kumbhaka) the prana vayu using bandhas while conducting the nadi-shodhan regime and not teach you any other pranayama until he is sure you have achieved moderate level of Nadi-Shuddhi.
Don’t question why teacher?  …Teacher is an unavoidable Evil here (smiles)

How can I learn to accept silence?

cropped-jungle-panna.jpgPath of a seeker is always full of moments where one is overwhelmed with mind’s focus of unwanted, negative things.. Everyone has a Pandora box of unlimited emotions, thoughts, memories and so called experiences between his ears and above his eyes and a naughty handler of it called mind. It is not that we get stuck by anything negative or positive.. we are stuck in this play of mind – as we tend to enjoy it. We take ‘rasa’ in it.

There are different categories of mind. One type is possessed by people who are called quick learners – they learn easily and what is learning all about? Learning means deriving yet another deeper, more profound thought (we call it lesson) by processing available emotions and bundle of thoughts. Quick decision making mind are those which take action on the outcome of learning. Some don’t learn at all. Some are fake learners.. So on so forth… And there’s hope with every kind of mind with the grace of Mother Divine and Guru but one should continue to be observant of what are signature traits of one’s mind as that leads to some silence within. And only a silent person can accept and enjoy silence.. not otherwise.

Remember it that You are lovingly accepted as you are.. Always!

Is Baba Ramdev teaching right Yoga?

|| Pranayama ||

|| Pranayama ||

I am attracted towards yoga because of its magical benefits as told by many books on yoga and Baba Ramdev. But at the same time I have heard yoga is a ” Do Dhari Talwar”. If done wrong it can harm you. I love to do pranayam and I do the 8 pranayam sequence told by RamDev Ji. I have got some benefits from it but at the same time I doubt because on internet there are many people including you who says that this is not the right way of doing pranayam. It needs some preparation and asanas should be done first and like doing lots of Kapalbhati can harm. So from you MY QUESTION is very simple. As a lower middle class man who cant afford a yoga teacher and a proper place for doing asanas (just a little bit place to sit and do pranayam) should I continue doing yoga or stop it. And if I continue what yoga should I do as a beginner and according to my health problems mentioned above.

Thankyou in advance, looking forward for your answer.

 – Obhishek Das


Beloved Obhishek,

Before everything I must say that… There is no need for me to comment what others are teaching but to promote what authentic scriptures talk about and what I have learnt through my Gurus. Every teacher has right to teach and propagate what he/she feels right and every practitioner has freedom to choose any teacher of his/her like.

I have written enough about this subject but still people continue to ask the same questions (or at least similar questions) repeatedly. One last time I wish to answer and clarify on this subject. There are two types of people following Yoga –

  1. Those who learn it from a Teacher/Master/Guru
  2. Those who try learning it by themselves by reading, watching and listening

If you are in the first category, facing any issues the most suitable advice to you is that go back to your teacher or Guru. Place your query and get answered.

For all those who fall in second category – Stop practicing breathing practices.. focus on Asanas, that too simple asanas. Please read more and more authentic books. Refer to Vedic literature which is the foundation of Yoga. And I am sure that after reading many books you shall get some confusions. Now is the time to search for a teacher in person. Use all means to find one good teacher who follows an authentic system (not self-invented). Thing to keep in mind is that a popular teacher may not be a perfect teacher and your knowledge acquired through self-study shall come handy.

Whether you are in first category of second, define your objective of getting into Yoga and in my opinion you should always refrain from fast-breathing pranayams and kriyas without completing preparatory steps.. As such 80% of population of world is suffering from breathing the wrong (polluted) air  why become victim of breathing in wrong ways. I repeat fast breathing pranayams are not safe.

Happy breathing..

Acharya Agyaatadarshan’s reply to a confused youth..

|| You seek and help will be there ||

|| You seek and help will be there ||

Acharya ji pranam,

first of all thanks for your reply….i am a 21 years old boy and i have been doing masturbation for the last 10 years continuously…of course i have tried to leave it many times but failed…now i am surrounded by all sorts of problems…i m losing my hair, i have become very skinny, no energy , feeling tired and fatigue all the time , my mental health has also gone down considerably…i feel tensions, anxiety and headaches all the time…cant concentrate, become very nervous for no reason at all …avoid people and all sorts of things.

sir , in these last 10 years i have had literally no one to share my feelings, i have lived more of a lonely life…and thats why a tremendous amount of negative emotions thoughts and feelings have set inside me…i feel no way out of this

i was an extra ordinary student (because of my memory, my understanding) upto my school level but then everything fell apart….

respected sir …i seek ur help and look forward to u reply to this….i am really in a lot of pain and unhappiness .thank you.   

 – Amit
Beloved Amit,

Although 11 years of age is too early to get into the habit but still understand that all your issues are not related to ONLY masturbation. There are many more things which you should contemplate on changing in your life –

1. Lack of energy, weakness and untimely hair-loss may have to do more than on your routine and eating habits.

Suggestion : In fact you need no authority to tell you that you should get up early in the morning and sleep on time, Exercise regularly without fail (10 rounds of Suryanamaskar after little warm up would be ok). I suggest you consult a physician also to be assessed for any specific deficiency or unknown ailment and adjust your diet & medication (if needed) and food supplements accordingly. It is better to take vitamins and nutrients from natural sources.. (sprouts with milk with added dry-fruits is best morning breakfast).

2. Your lack of concentration and loss of memory is also impacted due to loneliness and feeling of continuous guilt & love-deprivation.

Suggestion : You should start socializing a bit. If not possible to get in to friend circles due to prolonged loner attitude its better to engage yourself in some kind of social activities. Join a social group and engage yourself in service of people. Open communication channels with your parents and siblings.. they would definitely have consideration for you. Spend less time on computer & phone.. better reach out to people and interact.

3. I can see you are seeking help to come out of this habit of Masturbation.

Suggestion : Any habit is formed by repetitive behavior and only way to come out of that is to become aware of the aftermath (future) and choices before you engage yourself in any action. Any time you get an urge for that.. go out, take a walk.. read something good. Make sure you do not expose yourself to erotic materials and keep yourself alone for long duration because both would aggravate your desire.

Lastly, if you have time and resources get initiated in “Tattva Shakti Vigyaan”. The next program is in Delhi on 13th of October’2012 at India Habitat Center, Lodhi Road. Tattva Shakti Vigyaan  has helped many students and young people in harnessing their energies in constructive way. Do not think you are different.. every one has some or the other issue in life to deal with. Earlier we recognize the problem we would get access to solution.

To increase your will power.. in the first place decide your days of fasting and abstinence and adhere to that. Remember – a promise broken would weaken your will-power further. So decide yourself what you can promise and fulfill.

Baby steps please..
