Self Development technique - Savita Dhyan

Today I would discuss the self development technique, i.e Savita Dhyan. It gives lot of energy and lot of Vitality. Practitioners get success in every field of life through this practice.

A disciplined mind helps in physical, mental and spiritual well being. There are several techniques of meditation among them Savita Dhyan (Meditation on rising Sun) is highly effective and beneficial.
Pandit Śrīram Sharma Acharya in a Sadhana Camp described the practical aspect of Savita Dhyan. In his words: Mental concentration on some gross objects e.g. the rising Sun, is most convenient for majority of people; because, the human mind, in general, is not so developed that it could be focused for a stretch without any visible or perceptible symbol. However with sincere practice, one begins to realize the presence of spirit in his inner self and learn to meditate upon it.
How to practice it? Select a well ventilated calm and clean place for the practice. It will be more effective if the timing is of sunrise. Sit in padmasana, Siddhasana or Sukhasana (simple cross legged) with the spine erect and body parts relaxed. After the body part awareness observe the natural flow of breath. Slowly bring the awareness at center of brain and try to visualize the light spot of rising Sun.
For further assist your mind you can keep a picture of rising sun infront of you. Keep concentrating on this red bright ball. Later on feel the energy and warmness in your body. Just feel that with every inhalation you are absorbing the cosmic energy. You are gaining the physical strength, mental power and spiritual energy with the timebeing. Keep on practicing for 10 to 20 minutes or untill you feel comfotable. To quit the practice rub your palm and seck your eyes.
After a few days practice the infusion of light in the brain in the mind should inspire the practitioner to become a witness of all the internal experiences.

Self realization process (So- Ham Sadhana)

One of the effective technique which helps in Self management, is the topic of discussion today. So-ham Sadhana is a technique of meditation to realise the oneness of human consciousness and super consciousness. I am Thou- is the base of this sadhna-the meaning of this mantra. Only due to ignorance we are not able to recognise ourselves. We repeat the mantra with every breath but because of lack of awareness we are not able to understand it.

Method: - Sit in padmāsana, Siddhāsana or Sukhāsana (simple cross legged) with the spine erect and body parts relaxed. After the body part awareness observe the natural flow of breath. With every inhalation the sound of “So” can be observed and with every exhalation “Ham” sound can be observed. Just watch the breath and feel it. No breath should enter or pass out without your knowledge. The breathing will become slow and the total concentration will be on “So-Ham” mantra. The sound of this mantra is śāswat, you don’t have to produce. It will come itself. With every inhalation So-o-o and with every exhalation Ham-m-m. The feeling will be I am Thou (This means supreme God, Thou means supreme power, Thou means super consciousness).

Watch the breath, observe the mantra, feel the oneness of soul and body. Concentrate on it for at least ten minutes. The feeling of So-Ham will become stronger (I am Thou) for end the practice slowly remove the awareness from “So-Ham” mantra and observe the outer environment. Move the fingers and toes, hands, legs and neck slowly. Rub the palm and keep on the eyes. Open the eyes slowly.

After practice sit quietly for a moment and feel the change in your mood, in your behavior in your thought process........

Self Management Process

Managing the self is not so easy, therefore it needs lot of practice. One can start managing the self through health consciousness. If the physical body is fit he can manage the inner self. Just watch how do you feel today........? If the body functioning is well one can think beyond it. otherwise the body becomes the obstacle in the path of self upliftment.
Be conscious of your body weight, according to your height. Be conscious of your Pulse-rate, Heart bit, Respiration -rate, Blood pressure and other normal parameters through the general physical health check-up. Just watch there is no pain in the joints, there is no fatigue in the body......
If you are lacking somewhere this is the right time to manage your physical self through Yogic practices like Asana, Pranayama, Shatkarma etc...
If you are totally fit you should now watch your mental health.........
The stress level, the anxiety level, the concentration level, the memory level and so on.........
If you feel lacking on these point this is the time to practice Yogic Techniques again.
This all come under self Management
