5 proven techniques to achieve liberation from the cycle of birth and death

Following are 5  proven techniques to achieve liberation from the cycle of birth and death:

 

 

 1. Bhakti yoga

 

Bhakti Yoga is also known as the path of devotion to God. Bhakti yoga is considered the finest and easiest path to liberation – Moksha. The path of devotion is a path of love towards the Creator and all things in the universe. This path is followed by those who come to realize through any means that there is nothing in the world that has not been created from the essence of God. Thus, if there is no reality but God and God is the cause and consequence of creation, then it stands to reason that we are also nothing but God himself – in body mind and spirit. When that realization truly and practically dawns on the individual, all he can feel is love for the Lord and the person is said to be in Bhakti Yoga. Thus Bhakti yoga is a state of being in love with God.

  1. Gyaan Yoga

 

Gyaan Yoga, or the Yoga of knowledge, is not a state of being like Bhakti Yoga. Instead it is a guide map that helps us walk on the true path to liberation and not get lost on the way.  The Yoga of knowledge is essential since if we don’t correctly know the nature of God; the nature of the world and the path to Godhead, we cannot walk the true path. Gyaan yoga is preparatory to liberation and is an integral part of achieving realization. When ‘Gyaan’ or knowledge is realized, it leads to the spontaneous generation of love for the Lord and devotion to the lord. The danger in the path of knowledge is that till the knowledge remains theoretical, it tends to strengthen the Ego and such a person has a tendency to fall from the lord’s grace.

 

 

  1. Raja yoga

Raja yoga is a system that integrates various aspects of yoga that are required to find liberation. The embodied soul’s attention, is naturally tuned to flow outwards into the world and the attention of most beings is towards the indulgences of the world. This is the exact opposite of the state of liberation or Moksha. Raja yoga through various means such as knowledge , practice, discipline , austerities and sacrifice,  tries to guide the outward flow of desire and turns it inwards towards the path that leads to realization. Yam-acts, Niyam-rules, Dhyan-meditation, Dharna-visualization, Samadhi-thoughtlessness etc are some of the stages that Raja yoga helps the seeker to take on the way to liberation. If Gyaan yoga is the gaining of knowledge then Raja yoga is like a university that has various levels of study that ultimately lead to graduation that is Moksha.

 

  1. Karma yoga

Karma yoga is actually walking the path to liberation. It is the implementation of all that has been learnt in Gyaan Yoga and through Raja Yoga. In essence Karma yoga is the path of non-selfish action. Action is inevitable in this world and no being can live without taking action. It is the action and its fruit that binds us through the law of karma to the cycle of birth and death.  But karma yoga, while keeping us in the action mode, also provides us with an opportunity to escape from the cycle of birth and death. If we take actions that are not for our personal purpose but are done as a sense of duty and without any personal gratification, then that action is no longer karma but takes the stature of Dharma and we are free of the consequences of our action. A good example is that of a soldier and a murderer. Both these individuals take lives but the soldier does it as a duty while the murderer takes a life for some personal gratification. The consequences are very different. In the case of the soldier, his action does not bind him and instead becomes a tool for liberation while the acts of a murderer bind him more firmly to the wheel of rebirth.  Karma yoga is necessary to all other Yoga’s and systems mentioned above since for the seeker of liberation , all knowledge gained has to be put in practice and without that liberation cannot be achieved.

 

(5) Surat Shabd Yoga

No discussion on the paths and techniques of liberation will be complete without mentioning Surat Shabd yoga. This is the actual path that the soul takes when it gains the capacity to leave the body consciously and fly. This path is known as the path of Surat-Shabd yoga. When all other previous yoga’s have been mastered and the being is in a state of devotion (Bhakti) to the Lord, then the soul of such a devotee naturally rises like a hydrogen balloon and is ready to actually walk the path to liberation. Such a soul is guided on the path by divine sights and sounds. ‘Surat’ means Soul and ‘Shabd’ means the divine sound that can be followed as a guide by the ascending soul till the soul reaches those regions that are indestructible and with that the soul has achieved liberation. From the region of creation, the soul enters the region of the Creator, where it realizes it’s true nature and is thus liberated.

 

Devotion or Bhakti arises when the being falls in love with the Lord. The nature of love is such that the person in love can do nothing else but constantly think and obsess about the thing he loves. He can do nothing else. A being who is in love with the Lord, employs the following means to always be in remembrance of the Lord.

  1. Satsang Bhakti

Satsang Bhakti happens when the devotee seeks the company of those people who also love the Lord just like him. In such a company the being finds peace since all people in that company can do nothing but talk about the Lord.

  1. Shravan Bhakti

The act of hearing the tales and deeds of the Lord is called Shravan Bhakti. This is another means of being in the remembrance of the Lord – by hearing more about him through various means such as stories, kathas, experiences of others, bhajans, hymns etc.

  1. Kirtan Bhakti

This is the act of singing the praises of the Lord through bhajans, hymns, songs in praise etc. The being who sings the praises of the Lord, loses his sense of self by the act of singing and thus that person achieves a feeling a oneness and bliss since he has for a temporary time lost his sense of self and has merged with the Lord.

  1. Sumiran Bhakti

Sumiran is the act of constantly thinking and being in remembrance of the Lord. When one’s  mind is constantly engaged in thinking about the Lord or in taking his name, then such a person is said to be in Sumiran. It is said that as one thinks, so one becomes and the person who thinks about the Lord constantly , cannot but reach and be merged with the Lord.

  1. Archana Bhakti

This is the act of worship that one offers to God. The Lord loves the being who loves him and who offers him the act of devotion through simple means but some people like to offer their devotion through special means or prayers or worships or sacrifices. All conscious acts of offerings to the Lord, simple or special, are called Archana and are a form of devotion. The Geeta says in chapter 9 verse 26 that “Whoever offers Me with love a leaf, a flower, a fruit or water, I, appear before that selfless devotee of sinless mind and delightfully partake of that article offered by him with Love.”  This act of offering all that one uses for oneself first to the Lord, is called Archana Bhakti.

Meditation

In 20th and 21st century, Aadishri Arun gave piyush as a healing therapy for diseases to the world in the form of Meditation.
Meditation is a quality to blossom within you, if meditation has to blossom within you, if you cultivate your body, if you cultivate your mind, if you cultivate your emotion and energy to a certain level of preparedness, meditation will blossom within you.
Using meditation therapy is such a natural and safe way to treat and heal your self. To meditate, you need to change your brainwave state into theta, which is relaxing, or alpha, which is resting. When you are able to make your brain rhythm slow down in this way, your heart rate, metabolism and breathing rate slow down and your blood pressure lowers. Natural painkillers called endorphin are released into your system when your mind is calmed like this.
Meditation therapy is widely practiced and can relieve nervous system complaints such as headaches, depression, stroke, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis. If you suffer from digestive system concerns, meditation therapy could help you to treat such ailments as irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers, Crohn’s disease and nausea.

By using the meditation therapy you will be able to make yourself stronger and better one.
Meditation is the antidote. By reducing the production of stress hormones, it counteracts all the stress-related changes in the body, giving a boost to the immune system and helping to prevent and manage chronic disease. It also helps prevent and treat cardiovascular disease and can even reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels too.
Meditation has no negative effects, only good ones. So if you are suffering from an illness, whether mental or physical, it is worth trying meditation therapy as a means of relief or cure.

What happened when you start doing meditation?

What happened when you start doing meditation?
We know deep down that life is short, and that death will happen to all of us eventually, and yet we are infinitely surprised when it happens to someone we know. It’s like walking up a flight of stairs with a distracted mind, and misjudging the final step. You expected there to be one more stair than there is, and so you find yourself off balance for a moment, before your mind shifts back to the present moment and how the world really is.

LIVE your life TODAY! Don’t ignore death, but don’t be afraid of it either. Be afraid of a life you never lived because you were too afraid to take action. Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside you while you’re still alive.
The life of most people is not good only because they spend most of their time in doing those activities that they don’t like. They live in negative barren thoughts. Your mind and heart are not in the work you do. The result is mediocrity and failure and you lose confidence in your abilities. You somehow carry on in order to survive. Your life becomes a burden to you.
Shabd-Surat yoga is a solution that can help you. Surat-Shabd yoga will start bringing about a change that will appear miraculous to your defeated mentality. You will see miracles happening in your life and you will start believing that you are worthy of God’s love.

Meditation:

Meditation is a quality to blossom within you, if meditation has to blossom within you, if you cultivate your body, if you cultivate your mind, if you cultivate your emotion and energy to a certain level of preparedness, meditation will blossom within you.
There are two ways within – Jyoti Marg (Light) and Sound Marg (the way of light and the way of sound), respectively. The holy Light keeps the soul fixed and absorbed and to certain extent leads the soul as well, but the holy Word pulls it upward and carries it across from plane to plane in spite of various hurdles on the way, like blinding or bewildering lights, densely pitch darkness, etc., until the soul reaches its destination.
Holy Word has a magnetic pull which is irresistible, and the soul cannot but follow it to the spiritual source from whence the music emerges. The soul is helped by this process to slide out of the shackles of the body and becomes fixed in the heavenly radiance of its Self (Atman), and it led on to the heavenly home of the father.
Success in meditation depends on various factors. The first is to meet a Sadguru. In today’s time, to meet AADISRI ARUN who connects us to God is the height of good fortune and the greatest blessing. The second is that before sitting in meditation, pray to AADISRI because that will give impetus and help to your meditation. You can sit in Padmaasan, Siddhasana or any position which is comfortable. The idea is that body should not cause discomfort and disturb the meditation. Thirdly, the best time to meditate is before sunrise i.e. between 4:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. This is called Brahma-Murtha.

Shabd-Surat Yog:

Man must know where he is going; Light and Sound are both a necessity to know where you are going, and the Sound will be dragging you like anything. You do not know where you are going, so both things should be developed. Sound Principle is the guiding principle. Those who take up only Light, they may be enveloped by Light, but do not know where to go further. The Sound Principle guides there. Both things go hand in hand.

You should listen closely whether any higher Sound is coming, and while listening closely, repetition of the five names should not be done. You will have more Sounds than one, but you have to stick to that of a big bell, a conch, drum-beat, a violin (Saarangi), the flute, and Veena or Bagpipe which are the higher types of Sounds and leave all the rest.

As regards the Sound of Veena, it somewhat resembles the sound of the instrument which the snake-charmers use to play to catch the snakes. Its tune resembles that of a flute – the difference is that the sound of the flute is shrill compared with that of the Veena – just as the sound of a violin is shrill when compared with that of the flute – and the Sound grows more in volume and thicker and continuous as the soul traverses higher. It is a continuous Sound resembling that of a bagpipe. When you listen to the Sound you are not to follow it to trace out its source of emanation, as in that way it fades out. You should simply keep on listening at your eye-focus with rapt attention. It will draw closer, grow stronger, and ultimately come from above. As for hearing the Sound Current, you will please put in equal time for that soon after your sitting for withdrawal. If, however, this is not possible, you may devote time separately for each practice.
Shabd-Surat Yog technique continue for 20 minutes regularly.

Effect of doing Deep breathing technique:

Deep breathing is completely scientific, it boosts immune system by strengthening the lymphatic system of body. Deep breathing has effect on brain’s certain areas like frontal lobe and amygdala. It helps in brain’s response towards ‘flight or fight’ response. In overall, boy learnt that deep breathing reduces tension and pressure blood and hence it is very much helpful in calming the mind.
Deep breathing technique is being carried out for 5-10 minute regularly.
Effect of doing Kapalbhati Pranayama:
Kapalbhati is shaktipat it means it purify the mind and body. It has vital effect on frontal lobe of brain thus it is also called frontal brain technique or skull lightning technique.

Effect of doing Anulom – Vilom Pranayama:

In simple word, Pranayama means control of breath.

Pranayama has Sanskrit words: Prana and Ayama are combined in one word Pranayama. Prana means life and Ayama mean control. Therefore, Pranayama is the control of life.

Prana is the Energy or Life Force that is universal in nature and it is omnipresent. A portion of that prana is present in the human body. It flows at a superficial level to maintain the body and its organs. Ayama means expansion or stretching. When we used the two together in word Pranayama it means the extension and control of the breath.

Breathing is the most important function in our body but it is the most neglected one. Learning to control our breath allows us to control our body chemistry. Awareness and control of the breath also allow us to control our emotions. Mastery of the breath is vital to our spiritual growth. Pranayama is a form of breathing exercise and works as the supreme aim of spiritual awakening in yoga.

Breath is the life force that sustains life. When the breath stops, life ends. Normal breathing uses only a fraction of our potential respiratory capacity. Pranayama helps to control this life force in an extraordinary way to get the tremendous benefits. It brings benefits such as increased energy and perception, and development of various brain faculties. Pranayama purifies the channels that will carry the increased prana to some areas of the brain.

Benefits of Anuloma – Viloma:

Physical benefits:
1. Anuloma Viloma cleanses and strengthens the lungs and entire respiratory system and balance the nervous system.
2. As exhalation is twice the time of inhalation, stale air and waste products are drained from the lugs.
Mental Psychic benefits:
1. Anuloma Viloma helps to calm the mind, making it lucid and steady.
2. It makes the body light and the eyes shiny.
How does yoga affect your brain and memory:

For example when you heard any sound or noise, When you engage with sensory stimuli like sound,
Thalamus heard this and it gives signal to the temporal lobe (listener) and amygdala.
Amygdala gives this signal hypothalamus. Temporal lobe gives signal to Frontal lobe.
Hypothalamus gives signal to sympathetic nervous system to take appropriate action.
sympathetic nervous system takes action according to Hypothalamus and increase heart rate as per the implicit or explicit memory of sound (if it is not previously heard and scary then heartbeat increases) via signaling via thalamus to your brain.
Here frontal lobe tells mind (or you) how to respond according to sound.
