Mahamudra – An Integral Part of Kriya Yoga
The integral part of a healthy, fit and balanced life and harvesting the cosmic energy through the Susumna Maha Nadi.
Mahamudra is an integral part of Kriya Yoga. When the advancing Kriya Yogi gets the taste of the inner joy of deep meditation, he tends to sit in meditation for long periods. This can hamper blood circulation in the lower limbs, may also compress the nerves and jamming of the joints. These can damage the health of the lower limbs and can lead to disability (partial). Mahamudra can prevent all these. Also, you may be practicing the quick Mahamudra of the first Kriya or the classical Mahamudra of the second Kriya. Both are of tremendous physical, mental, and spiritual benefits.
1st Kriya Mahamudra:
It helps in banishing lethargy, sluggishness, and makes the body and mind alert, flexible, calm, and perceptible vital energy. One can feel it. The greatest obstacle to any practice is physical and mental lethargy. These are known as the Taamasi shakti or the power of dullness, idleness, lethargy, and covering the Saattwik and awareness of the Soul or the Spirit. Success and perfection depend on practice. Mahamudra has the greatest role. In addition, Mahamudra dramatically improves the Energy level of all the systems of the person. This is a single technique for immense, simultaneous physical mental, and spiritual benefits.
2nd Kriya Mahamudra:
Many Masters call it the Panacea of most diseases. It is a rare divine present, from God. No discussion or description can do full justice to the glory and greatness of this Mahamudra. It contains many BANDHAS, MUDRAS, ASANAS, PRANAYAM, PRATYAHARA, and much more. Success is sure if practiced daily, correctly, and sincerely. The basic requirement is, learning Kriya Yoga techniques, personally from the Master or the Guru. Learning and practicing the first Kriya well and then the second Kriya.
May God and Guru Bless, Guide, Protect and Inspire each one of us and the Whole Universe.
