The direct path can lead to realizing the subject “I”.  Socrates distilled this insight with the statement, “KNOW THYSELF”.

The central channel is the domain of MAHADEVI KUNDALINI.  Entering the central channel is a challenge every sadhu must face.  Developing BHAKTI (sentiment) is the classical path to a sadhu’s success in doing so.  When the sentiment has matured, Devi listens to the sadhu’s calling.  At the end of the retreat sadhus will join in a ceremony to invoke her presence.

We will learn and practice chanting mantras and bija (seed) sounds of the chakras in a specific manner to maximize purification of the Central Channel.  We will also learn to understand the relationship between and role of thoughts, feelings and emotions.

Classical Tratak meditation will be advised to all sadhus.

______________________________________________________________

As fundamentally divine beings, we are all designed to be joyful and content. There is no need to settle for less. The stresses of life, however, often sabotage us with negative thinking, emotional issues and physical toxicity.

The Three-Body Purification Retreat is designed to flush out accumulated toxicity, interrupt obsessive patterns of thinking, and resolve buried feelings.

The detailed practices will allow you to gradually rise above the mind, make right choices, and find the joy in each day, despite external circumstances.

Sri Shyamji Bhatnagar, the Chakra Institute’s founder, offers more than four decades of experience and has guided thousands of people around the world. His unique ability to produce the ethereal element of soorya akasha with his voice allows many people to experience powerful changes.

 

Through his chants and teachings, and through meditation and a dietary protocol, you will begin to purify your three bodies: the physical body, the causal body (thoughts) and the subtle body (feelings).      

Many participants have found this program to be life transforming.

About the Three Bodies:

Physical body: Between the cells of our physical body, there is considerable space. The other two bodies (causal and subtle, described below) pervade this space—like radio waves pervade the “solid” walls of a room.

Subtle body: The seat of our feelings. The subtle body has seven major spinning wheels of light energy (chakras), energized by the five basic elements: earth, water, fire, air and akasha (space). Elements—and combinations of elements—play an essential role in determining how we feel. Under conditions of stress and toxicity, the elements lose their purity and potency. This may have a negative effect on our feelings. For example, when the earth element is in abundance, we feel solid and grounded, and our confidence is strengthened, while if earth is dispersed, we may feel weak and sluggish. When air is plentiful, we may feel buoyant and more loving; if polluted, it can cause us to feel uncaring.

Causal body: Where our thoughts reside. Human beings, in the process of survival, evaluate changes in their environment first in the causal body by means of thought. Thoughts generate feelings in the subtle body, which are then expressed in the physical body. Thoughts, feelings, and sensations influence one another.

The retreat's dietary protocol will address allergies, skin problems, headache, joint pain, sore throat, constipation, fatigue, and other health issues.

We experience these symptoms when our lymphatic system is compromised. The ayurvedic fall protocol will help to cleanse the toxins stored in our fat cells, stabilize your mood, and increase mental clarity.

The diet is designed to enhance fat metabolism in the cells. Because fat is a stable fuel, you will experience a sense of calm when you enter the fat metabolism mode. You will have an opportunity to learn how to prepare and enjoy organic, gluten-free purifying vegetarian meals. The diet will be supplemented with cleansing and digestive herbs and supplements.

This diet will help to detox and nourish your lymphatic system.

 

It takes four days to purify the physical body. As Sri Shyamji’s sounds and mantras are chanted, emphasis shifts to the subtle body and feelings that have been buried beneath our awareness. The subtle body begins to respond to the sounds, and there is increased awareness of the sounds. This supports the purification process.

Purified energy from the physical and subtle body is refined enough to penetrate the causal body. The process of thinking itself may begin to feel clearer.

Sri Shyamji and participants chant sounds that produce Soorya (golden) akasha (space), expanding and strengthening the path of subtle energy to enable lasting healing and create clarity of mind. This highly refined akasha pushes dense and toxic residue out of the thinking body.

When we are purified, our breathing rate drops and we meditate with ease. 

Physical body: Physical purification sharpens all five senses. It inspires the desire to keep the body healthy. The dietary protocol is intended to cleanse the internal organs (liver, kidney, bladder, spleen, blood and intestines), strengthen the immune system, and decrease sensitivity to allergens. InnerTuning movements associated with each chakra are practiced and assist the purification process. Regular exercise and a healthy diet become part of our routine.

 

 

Subtle Body: Purification of the subtle body cleanses our feelings and emotions. The negative ones may have been buried beneath our awareness. Sometimes, old memories from early childhood emerge. This is part of the purification process. Since all participants are present for the same purpose, they provide a supportive environment for one another. As participants become in touch with their real feelings on a deeper level, they begin to lay the groundwork for improvement in relationships, creating contentment as competitiveness evaporates—one can truly feel happy when others are also succeeding. Helping others becomes a reward in and of itself. Sri Shyamji’s sounds and mantras act deeply on the subtle body, increasing awareness of the effects sounds have on body, mind and spirit. Many have reported a greater sound awareness as the retreat’s ends

Causal Body: We discuss deep questions such as: “Who Am I?”; “Why Am I Here?”; and “How do I create and maintain wellness and happiness in my life?” The educational experience is empowering on many levels. The process of thinking itself may begin to feel clearer. Interest in abstract thinking naturally emerges, along with the desire to turn the senses inward (pratyahara). We chant sounds and mantras that produce soorya (golden) akasha. This highly refined akasha pushes dense, toxic akasha out of the causal body. The absorption of soorya akasha purifies apana, and helps to integrate the three bodies, facilitating meditation and life transformation. Consequently, the breathing rate drops dramatically and participants feel freer to meditate, refining thinking and facilitating life transformation

The three bodies are energized by five major pranas, or vital life forces. Of these five, the apana prana is the detoxifier.

Apana prana normally operates below the navel, where it facilitates bodily functions of elimination such as urination. The stress of modern life putrefies apana, however, affecting the purity of higher pranas. Therefore, different regions of the body can manifest disorders ranging from constipation to depression, memory problems to dementia, and even schizophrenia. When the apana is purified, digestion and bowel rhythm is improved, and one feels grounded, clear, stable and light.

 

The light of the chakras travels through subtle pathways called microchakras™. Blockages in the microchakras cause stress, anxiety, addictive behavior and lack of confidence. When open, these pathways lead to a more meaningful, productive, and joyful life, in harmony with the laws of nature.

A MESSAGE FROM Sri Shyamji: "I conducted an experiment and would like to share the remarkable results.

As many of us are really in need of strength and understanding during these very difficult conditions, I decided to do an online purification. To my surprise, I have found both characteristics (strength and understanding) to be fully present at the online purification retreat, in the same measure as during an in-person event.

Our participants found the online purification (at their home), an extraordinary opportunity to chant freely and without the concern of being judged by others. Their saboteurs also felt alarmed and became weak. Participants could ably manage their fears on their own, in the comfort of their own home. Actually, they recognized this occasion as an opportunity do their Sadhana (spiritual work) more seriously in seclusion and in silence.

The participants were given the protocol and ingredients to purchase, for their use during the purification. Online InnerTuning movements, yoga and answers to all of their questions about their needs and nutritional advice by Marina were available on demand.

I could not imagine such impressive results. The participants' testimonials bring a great sense of contentment to me and Marina.

We may not have the freedom to be together at this time, but cannot be stopped from purifying, growing spiritually and feeling better about ourselves."

        More information:

        In the classes Sri Shyamji will introduce:

        Microchakra Psychology™ and InnerTuning® practices which include potent matrika sounds, rhythms and mantras that releases blockages so the subtle body can become realigned and physical and mental health can be restored. Sri Shyamji Bhatnagar developed the InnerTuning technique and the Microchakra Psychology, a blend of ancient wisdom and contemporary psychology that explains the workings of the subtle body and how openings or blockages in the chakras can either encourage or sabotage psychological health and spiritual development.

        Naada Yoga (yoga of sound)

        Sounds offer specific frequencies to alter vibrations in the microchakras and through this change the neurochemical pathways of the brain. This results in feelings of peace and clarity.

        Sounds of chakras

        Chanting is a natural path to meditation. It liberates the mind from false identities and activates the subtle energies, reduces stress, and leads to serenity.

        Sri Shyamji has the most unique voice radiating Soorya Akasha (ethereal space) which puts people in touch with a deeper state of awareness. The pure energy of the sounds  chanted by Shyamji enable listeners to absorb Soorya Akasha. To be effective, mantras must be given precise pronunciation and intonation as they are invocations of latent energies of major potential.

        Soorya Akasha

        Akasha is the element of the fifth chakra, the source of speech, listening upon the quality of the sound, akasha will be more or less refined. Among the finest akaaha is soorya akasha. Some of the many beneficial effects of Sorya Akasha are:

        • Establishes new connections among neurons

        • Produces a healing effect on the immune system

        • Aides integration of all three fields: causal, subtle and physical

        • Reduces breathing rate

        • Brings contentment to the seven chakra minds

        • Integrates the left and right hemispheres of the brain

        • Refines the early (reptilian and mammalian) brain

        • Aides unattached observation of phenomenal world

        • Stimulates opening of the sixth microchakra of the fifth chakra, the locus of the Inner Guru

        • Facilitates meditation                                         

         

        Sri Shyamji is a master of the ancient Indian Healing arts of sound (naada) and breath (svara) which he has practiced and perfected for the last 50 years.

        One of Shyamji's most important contributions to the living tradition of yoga is a diagnosis and treatment system he calls InnerTuning, which operates on subtle-body structures never before recognized in yogic literature: the microchakras. Microchakras are components of the larger chakras, the energetic vortices located along subtle channels analogous to the physical spine. When a microchakra is fully open, healing energy flows freely. The therapeutic effect is profound. Microchakras associated with sounds and mantras are known to evoke harmonious brainwaves, settling the breath and calming the mind.

        Sri Shyamji will demonstrate how to use sound as a healing tool. He will chant to alter everyday awareness and increase insight into the causes of chronic ailments. Thousands of participants throughout the world have testified to the power of Shyamji's work.

        Sri Shyamji learned these practices at age twelve by his Guru he met in the Himalayas. He received the knowledge of the Microchakras in one meditation, as a divine transmission. From this, unified with his mastery of Naada (sound) yoga, he created InnerTuning®, a comprehensive system for understanding and transforming human energies.

        What are the Three Bodies?

        Physical body: Between the cells of our physical body, there is considerable space. The other two bodies (causal and subtle, described below) pervade this space as radio waves through the "solid" walls of a room.

        Subtle body: The seat of our feelings. The subtle body has seven major spinning wheels of light energy (chakras), energized by the five basic elements: earth, water, fire, air and akasha (space). Elements and combinations of elements play an essential ls role in determining how we feel. Under conditions of stress and toxicity, the elements lose their purity and potency. This may have a negative effect on our feelings. For example, when the earth element is in abundance, we feel solid and grounded, and our confidence is strengthened, while if earth is dispersed, we may feel weak and sluggish. When air is plentiful, we may feel buoyant and more loving; if polluted, it can cause us to feel uncaring.

        Causal body:  Where our thoughts reside. Human beings, in the process of survival, evaluate changes in their environment first in the causal body by means of thought. Thoughts generate feelings in the subtle body, which are then expressed in the physical body. Thoughts, feelings, and sensations influence one another.

        How the purification affects each body?

        Physical body: Physical purification sharpens all five senses (smell, taste, sight, touch and hearing). It inspires the desire to keep the body healthy. The dietary protocol is intended to cleanse the internal organs (liver, kidney, bladder, spleen, blood and intestines), strengthen the immune system, and decrease sensitivity to allergens.

        Subtle Body: Purification of the subtle body cleanses our feelings and emotions. The negative ones may have been buried beneath our awareness. Sometimes, old memories from early childhood emerge. This is part of the purification process. As participants become in touch with their real feelings on a deeper level, they begin to lay the groundwork for improvement in relationships, creating contentment as competitiveness evaporates one can truly feel happy when others are also succeeding. Helping others becomes a reward in and of itself. Sri Shyamji's sounds and mantras act deeply on the subtle body, increasing awareness of the effects sounds have on body, mind and spirit. Many have reported a greater sound awareness at the retreat's end.

        Causal Body: We discuss deep questions such as: "Who Am I?"; "Why Am I Here?"; and "How do I create and maintain wellness and happiness in my life?"  The educational experience is empowering on many levels. The process of thinking itself may begin to feel clearer. Interest in abstract thinking naturally emerges, along with the desire to turn the senses inward (pratyahara).  We chant sounds and mantras that produce Soorya (golden) akasha. This highly refined akasha pushes dense, toxic akasha out of the causal body. The absorption of Soorya akasha purifies apana, and helps to integrate the three bodies, facilitating meditation and life transformation. Consequently, the breathing rate drops dramatically and participants feel a deep sense of Self and transformation.

        What is Apana?

        Our three bodies are energized by five major pranas, or vital life forces. Of these five, the Apana prana is the detoxifier.

        Apana prana normally operates below the navel, where it facilitates bodily functions of elimination such as urination etc. The stress of modern life putrefies Apana, however, affecting the purity of higher pranas. Therefore, different regions of the body can manifest disorders ranging from constipation to depression, memory problems to dementia, and even schizophrenia. When the apana is purified, digestion and bowel rhythm is improved, and one feels grounded, clear, stable and light.

        This is a life time opportunity to experience the light through the sacred sounds!

        When all our desires are fulfilled, we are content and live reality in the present moment.
