Techniques & Effects Of Ajna Chakra Meditation
Shakti asks Shiva:
What are the techniques & Effects Of Meditation?
Ajna Chakra is the place of meditation.
- The two physical eyes (sun & moon) see past and present while the 3rd eye (fire) reveals the future.
- All experiences and ideas serve to clarify one’s perception in the Ajna Chakra.
- Ida, Pingala end in their respective nostrils and the three nadis Ida (lunar current), Pingala (solar current), Sushumna (central neutral current) meet at Triveni (the main seat of consciousness).
- After crossing the fifth chakra and before reaching the 6th Ajna Chakra, the Sushumna bifurcates.
- The anterior branch continues upward with :
- Raudri &
- Brahama Nadi
- The posterior branch has only “The Fire” element.
- The sun works as the Pingala nadi outside the sushumna and As Vajrini and Jyeshtha Nadis inside.
- The moon works as the Ida nadi outside the sushumna and As Chitrini & Vama Nadi inside.
- The Fire works as posterior Sushumna And inside the anterior Sushumna , as the Raudri Nadi and the Brahama Nadi, the innermost Nadis.
- The posterior Sushumna consumes in its fire all the impressions (samskaras) that are stored in the buddhi (intellect).
- Concentration on the seed sound AUM ,especially on the Bindu (the dot above the crescent in the syllable AUM written in sanskrit script) is helpful in activating the energy through the posterior sushumna.
- The third eye pineal gland helps to pierce Rudra granthi obstructing the anterior Sushumna.
- I-consciousness is destroyed by meditating on goddess hakini 4 heads which signify:
- Thought Control
- Undivided Attention
- Perfect Concentration
- In real meditation neither the dhaiye ( who is meditated upon ) and Dhyata ( who is meditating) exists.
- Meditation on one particular aspect of divinity focuses mind and leads to concenteration.
- Concentration on Lingam helps to absorb thoughts and lead to Meditation.
- The reduction of Lingam to Bindu is Absorbtive Meditation.
- When the yogi performs mantra japa (sound repetitions) on SOHAM, ”That I Am” (sa-that, aham-I am) in the sixth chakra, the syllables automatically become reversed, forming the mantra HAMSA, which is the Sanskrit word for swan.
- Thus meditating on the Self (in the Bindu) (the dot representing infinity in the syllable AUM) transforms the Yogi into a Paramhamsa, who stays in supreme consciousness.
- Those who meditate on this chakra eradicate all their sins and impurities and enter the seventh chakra, beyond Ajna door. The AUM drone generates from their body itself.
- They are beyond the Tattvas (tattvatita). All desires come from Tattvas.
- Those who have become adept in third eye meditation go beyond desires and multi-direction movement. They become one pointed.
- They bring their breath and mind in control and hence are always in Samadhi during all actions. Whatever they desire comes true.
