126. SAMAADHI

Prev     Next

  • If we are not thinking about anything for a very short duration such as one or two minutes, this state is called Dhyaanam. If we are in Dhyaanam for a long duration such as one or two hours, then this state is called Samaadhi.
  • Thus, Yoga consists of these eight parts. Our Anatomic Therapy treatment is nothing but the first two parts of yoga. Please do not see Anatomic Therapy and yoga as two separate things. If you have understood the first two parts of yoga, you have understood Anatomic Therapy. The first two parts of yoga deal with what we should not do and what we should do.
  • Thus, Anatomic Therapy and Yoga are not different from each other. In all yoga centres, straightaway they teach you about yoga asanas or Dhyaanam or breathing exercises. The benefit we may get from such exercises will be less because we skip the first two parts of yoga.
  • First of all, a person should know about the things that he should not do and he should stop doing these things. Secondly, he should know about the things that he should do and he should start practicing and doing these things. Only as the third step, he should start doing yoga asanas, that is, yogic exercises. This is the proper way to do yoga.
  • Therefore, those who are already doing yoga exercises can understand the first two parts of yoga through our treatment and then if they do the yoga exercises, they will get better results and it will also be highly beneficial to them.
  • Initially we had named our treatment as “Aachaaram and Anushtaanam”. Chaaram means habit. Aachaaram means good habit. Anushtaanam means implementation. Several years back, we started the exercises in Coimbatore under the name “Aachaaram and Anushtaanam” and distributed thousands of pamphlets and notices to the public. But nobody turned up. People told us, “We know all the good habits. Why should we come and learn from others some good habits that we already know?”
  • Then we arranged workshops about how to prepare Dasa Marundhu (Medicine made of ten herbal ingredients). We advertised that we can prepare a medicine called Dasa Marundhu by using the things available in our kitchen and we can cure all the diseases in the world using this medicine. We explained to the people who turned up about this treatment in detail and told them that by converting the food we eat into good quality blood diseases can be cured. Still, not many people responded. Thus, there was only a lukewarm response from the public for several years when we told them that we would teach them good habits and practices.
  • Finally we renamed this treatment as “Anatomic Therapy”. When the name sounded Greek and Latin to them, people started coming in large numbers. Then only we understood one thing. Only when something is given an unknown and strange name, our interest is aroused and we come forward to learn about it thinking that it has something which we do not know.
  • In very cold countries such as Switzerland, Norway, etc. the people need to make more body movements. In very hot countries such as Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, etc. it is sufficient if the people have a little physical activity. This is because the temperature will be high in these countries.
  • Have you ever heard of servants being employed for household chores in cold countries such as England, USA, etc.? But in hot countries such as Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, etc. people come from other countries to work as household helpers. This shows that in cold countries people streamline their heat energy by doing more physical activity by doing their works by themselves. Our blood should remain hot. Then only it will have its potency. At the same time, if people in hot countries give more work to their body they will get diseases. So, these people should reduce their physical movements.
  • People living in cold countries have a necessity to do physical work for more hours every day. In hot countries, there is no necessity to do physical exercise, yoga asanas, etc. But these people need to do Savasana, meditation and similar such exercises in order to reduce the heat in their body.
  • Physical exercise will give heat to the body. Yoga asanas heat up the body. Savasana, also called Santhi Asana, which is an exercise wherein we lie down and relax the body, cools down the body. If we do breathing exercise, the body temperature will rise and the body will heat up. If we understand these facts, know which exercise should be done more and which should be done less and do exercises according to the weather in the country and area where we live, we will always be healthy.
  • Thus, in hot countries, yoga exercises and breathing exercises should be reduced and Savasana and Dhyana should be done more. In cold countries, Savasana and Dhyana should be reduced and physical exercises, asanas and breathing exercises should be done more. In countries where the weather is neither hot nor cold, all exercises should be done in equal measure in a balanced manner.
  • Keeping these in mind, we have designed an exercise called Naalumaa Yoga. This exercise is of one hour and 15 minutes duration and it cures all the diseases. You can buy the Naalumaa Yoga DVD and do this exercise even when you are at your home. Naalumaa Yoga has been separately explained in this book. You can read it and get an understanding about it.
  • We are going to shortly introduce an exercise called “Aga Oli Dhyaanam” which can give in just five minutes all the benefits that can be obtained by doing physical exercise, asanas, Savasana, breathing exercise and Dhyaanam for half an hour each. It is somewhat difficult to teach this exercise directly to a person who does not know anything about yoga. Therefore, this Aga Oli Dhyaanam can be taught to only those people who have practised Naalumaa Yoga for at least a period of one year.
  • Those who do not get sufficient time to do physical exercise can use this Aga Oli Dhyaanam to increase, reduce and balance the body heat in just five minutes. You can understand about this exercise in this book by reading the matter under a separate heading.

Food liked by your tongue is food right for your body.
