Course Outline

Develop concentration through Mantra Meditation

Using mantras, sounds with the rhythm for meditation is the most ancient and effective tool. Mantra provides you a crystallized state of mind and the state of beyond mind, into the state of true being.

The power of the Mantra meditation lies in the way you control the flow of energy through the various organs. You will see this in the program as one way to improve the favorable effects of meditation. When you meditate, you open the energy channels, starting from the base chakra located at the base of our spine.

Each of the chants is associated with a specific organ. One mantra you use is the all-powerful AUM sound. This mantra sounds like the bees and it raises the inner base chakra by stirring it.

Unlike Yoga Nidra where you can achieve samadhi or total peace in all the organs of the body, here you stimulate them to the metabolic activities become augmented. This is found in Nyasa, where Sanskrit mantras remain placed in specific organs of the body. By stimulating specific organs, you can get rid of ailments and cure infections.

The other big advantage of using a mantra is that you become free of repetitive thought. Through deep meditation, you can go behind the thought and understand why and how you get it in the first place. The emotional upheaval you experience comes from negative thoughts like pride, greed, and anger. But, they last only for 90 seconds at a time. When you chant a mantra, you are voiding the mind for that crucial period when you suffer the emotional disturbance. This helps block the drain of energy.

Know Yoga Nidra - a specific form of Meditation

Yoga Nidra meditation is a guided meditation technique which helps and directs you in a conscious state of sleep. Yoga Nidra is a state of existence of the yogi during the meditation which goes from wakefulness to sleep and then comes back to wakefulness. It highlights the presence of stages of transitions associated with different states of the mind. Shortly, you can say this is the state of conscious sleep. It is the easiest and effective meditation to purify the back edge of your unconscious mind.

The Mandukya Upanishads speak of the three states of consciousness - waking, dreaming, and deep sleep. This deep sleep state is called prajna. Through this yoga Nidra, you can purify the Samskaras that drive the karma. These Samskaras are deep-seated impressions existing on some plane within you. The difference from sleep is that when you sleep you lose your path. In yoga Nidra, the consciousness of the world remains lessened but the inner relaxation is deep.

The guiding clarity or light is the spiritual path you must seek (sadhana) and is entirely based on creative visualization. Yoga Nidra prepares and refines the yogi (sadhaka) who does the sadhana on various planes of existence such as the emotional, the spiritual, the physical, and the mental improving the consciousness and awareness.

The result of such a meditation is a realization, where the mind is aware of its own shortcomings and virtuous deeds and awareness, or bliss state where the yogi is in communion with the divine. They showed under experimental conditions, the yoga Nidra achieved (and they recorded) 70% alpha waves.You will get practical experience when you do your 100-hour meditation teacher training course.

In yoga Nidra state, you remain relaxed but aware of events taking place around yourself. This allows you to examine the deepest feelings and make the needed changes. By seeing the world around in conjunction with yourself, you can perceive things from a real perspective. This helps you make better decisions.

Mindfulness meditation

Mindfulness means being present, now and here. The mind is always moving here and there behind thoughts and you keep on missing this present moment. Life of modern men has become a dreaming state, they are never in real life. Which is just here and now. Mindfulness methods of meditations is an opportunity to realize the value of being here and now.

Kundalini Meditation

According to yogic terminology our life force, the dormant energy which is sleeping into the root chakra at the base of spine, is called Kundalini. Until Kundalini is sleeping a person has to live into his minimum conscious state. Once the Kundalini power wakes up and starts moving upwards human achieves the higher state of consciousness.

Various methods of meditations are there which is helpful to wake up kundalini power. They provide the best atmosphere and methods to teach and practice kundalini meditations.

Dancing meditation

If you can dance, and dance totally, no other meditation is needed. Dance is the best way to meditate. All explanations are unnecessary because this state of dancing in totality is something that is needed to be experienced in a beautiful setting. Triguna yoga provides this setting, dancing meditation techniques, and guidance so you can just experience it and provide a setting for others to have this experience.

Tantra yoga kriyas

Tantra yoga kriyas are some tantric breathing and sound with yogic postures, mudras, and bandhas. Tantric yoga kriya meditations awaken our sleeping potentialities. These techniques used to be hidden methodology. Triguna yoga is offering some of these important techniques to their students and practitioners.

Vipassana Meditation

Meditation of Vipassana was there in Hindu mythology previously but later on Gautam, the Buddha developed these techniques in a very clear and profound way. These techniques of meditation are based on observations practices. And finding the separation between seer and seen, observer and observed, experiencer and experience.
