Dedicated to everyone, who is searching answers to these questions: What is ayurveda? How is this ancient medical system connected with yoga, meditation, healthy food, relaxation in nature and modern life style?
The word yoni means womb. Yoni mudra invokes the primal energy inherent in the womb of creation. It makes the body and mind more stable in meditation and develops greater concentration, awareness and internal physical relaxation.
One of these two mudras should be adopted whenever practising meditation. Chin mudra is performed in the same way as jnana mudra except that the palms of both hands face upwards, with the backs of the hands resting on the knees.
Tapa cleanses the mind, so that it experiences sat-chitta-ananda. It makes the body radiant, youthful and prevents it from aging. Tapasya is the process of lightining this fire. Shiva and his followers were Tapasvins, fire-churning ascetics.
Surya Namaskara, Salutations to the Sun, is complete Sadhana, spiritual practice, in itself. It includes asana, pranayama, mantra and meditation. It is an effective way of loosening up, stretching, massaging, toning all the joints, muscles and internal body organs.
In Asian culture, people greet each other by joining their palms, termed as Namaste. When we greet one another with Namaste, it means, may our minds meet! The real meeting between people is the meeting of their minds!
Time of year when the city of Kochi transforms into a madhouse! The Cochin Carnival is the biggest gala of Fort Kochi and a great time for merrymaking and feasting along with hundreds and thousands of people before stepping into the New Year.
