Dziś udostępniam jeden z najbardziej inspirujących fragmentów z Astadala Yogamala.

Guruji opisuje jaki ma na Nas wpływ praktyka

• SALAMBA SARVANGASANA
• HALASANA
• SETU BANDHA SARVANGASANA
• PASCHIMOTTANASANA

i jaka jest różnica pomiędzy nimi.

Serdecznie polecam :).......................................
“When you do a good and perfect Paschimottanasana, have you not experienced a state of silence? When you do Halasna with a prop, is your mind silent or not? When you say, ''Yes'', then is it not meditation? Why do you yourself get confused? Silence is the first goal of yoga. You are experiencing this in Setu Bandha Sarvangasana, you are experiencing this in Halasana as well as in Paschimottanasana. I will tell you the difference between these asanas. They take you to the state of silence, even perfection. But in that silence you find various differences.

In HALASANA, the silence is passive and makes you pensive.
In SETU BANDHA SARVANGASANA, it is a half-pensive and half-dynamic state of silence. In Halasana, you can go to sleep, but in Setu Bandha Sarvangasana you cannot go to sleep and you cannot oscillate either. In Setu Bandha Sarvangasana you cannot oscillate, you can never be inattentive even for a second, otherwise you lose the balance. Yet you feel cool in the head.
In PASCHIMOTTANASANA you experience serene silence.
You have to study yourselves, when you do each and every asana and see what behavioural changes take place in your temperament and mind and where they lead.

In Paschimottanasana, the behavioural pattern of the mind is of one type.
In Salamba Sarvangasana, the behavioural pattern of the mind is of a different type.
In twistings, the behavioural pattern of the mind is different.
In backbends, it is different. I say, in backbends your mind is in a full state of awareness and sharp. If your intelligence is not sharp, you collapse.
In Salamba Sarvangasana or in forward bends, you can relax a bit here and a bit there.
In Halasana and karnapidasana you can completely relax.

So you can learn from different asana the three states of consciousness, jagrata, svapna and susupti (wakeful, dream and sleep). Sometimes, in between these three states you learn by experiencing the state of mind merging deep inside, as if you are in turiya state. Each and every one of you has experienced this but your intelligence is not able to catch it. Once you catch this experience, you find in each asana that the states of consciousness change. You begin to survey in various asana the behaviour of your mind and body cells, like a person who flies in a helicopter and surveys an area. Do not be confused if somebody says to you that this is physical yoga, be indifferent to such words and stick to your practices. Even for spiritual yoga, the body has to be used. Can spiritual wisdom be imparted without speech? Without opening one's mouth, can one explain to you what spiritual yoga is? One has to use various means to explain the spiritual life. Without physical means, the essence of spirituality cannot be expressed. So never get confused. "
