1 Patanjali: To know the Mind, focus on the Heart ( By practicing Samyama on the heart, knowledge of the mind is acquired ) Samyama is a particular practice of focus and absorption 1

2 Obstacles: The Knots or Granthi 3. Rudra Granthi transcend action to attain wisdom centered in the mental bodies of knowledge or jnana: Manomaya and Vijnanamaya Kosha: these forms of knowing still retain attachment to I-consciousness or ego The knot lies in attachment to knowledge as my knowledge located in the Ajna Chakra (between the eyebrows), the seat of knowledge and the customs station for passage to higher forms of awareness. The obstacle is attachment to I-consciousness; keeping one s awareness of self as a drop, holding back from the ocean This is a high level of achievement, going beyond diversity to perceive unity; but with that comes powers and attainments, which can reinforce a sense that I have attained this 2.Vishnu Granthi the feeling of desire and fear, which is transcended to act for the good centered in body of prana: Pranamaya Kosha faith, love & compassion The knot lies in attachment to the cosmic good and the desire to help humanity with attachment to traditions and idealism our way This knot is located in the Anahata Chakra (heart), which is also the seat of the prana, which controls the mind and emotions The heart chakra is the seat of faith, love & compassion, which can present obstacles so far as compassion forms attachments not to desires or sense objects, but to the good, and to a desire to help humanity. One adopts the vow of the bodhisattva to relieve the world from suffering but by doing so gets caught up in the world of doership. A person at this level sees the unity in diversity, but gets caught up in diversity; though he is disciplined and one-pointed, he is still restless with the desire to do something. Practice: pranayama as loosening sense of doership 1.Brahma Granthi feeling of separateness centered in the physical body: Annamaya Kosha This knot is located in the Muladhara Chakra, concerned with one s security Related to the experience of name and form. A person at this level sees only diversity and is restless with desire and fear. Because of this knot, it is hard to meditate well because of restlessness and the inability to become one-pointed. Practice: purification (physical practice yoga) Vishnu Brahma Rudra 2

3 The Heart Chakra Hope Anxiety Repentence Endeavor Shiva Indecision Posessiveness Fraudulence Arrogance Shakti Energy flows to and from the petals with Lustfulness Incompetence the inhalation and exhalation, activating 12 Petals of the Outer Heart representing movement of energy in the 12 directions Egoism Discrimination the 12 Vrittis 3

4 Inside of the Heart Chakra there is an additional 8 petaled lotus situated to the right of the physical heart. In its center is a spiritual or etheric heart known as Hrit Pundarik or the Heart Lotus. Untouched by physical impurities, it is the seat of the self and waking consciousness and in the dream state. It can only be reached when the Sushumna starts working which is awakened through directing the breath or prana into the Sushumna. The stalk of this lotus is associated with Chitrini, the pure or Sattvic quality of the Goddess associated with the central layer of the Sushumna, the Chitra Nadi. 4

5 The Layers of the experience of the Sushumna are influenced by the Gunas the qualities of action and experience Pingala Right Nostril Sun Ida Left Nostril Moon As the Sattvic layer of Chitra Nadi is experienced, the Heart Lotus becomes active Sushumna experienced as Tamas (inertia) beyond time Vajrini the Sun experienced as Rajasic (active) poison Chitrini the Moon experienced as Sattvic (illumination) nectar Brahma Nadi or Brahma Dvara at the end of Chitrini: passageway of awakened Kundalini 5

6 In the waking state, the physical heart works, but the spiritual heart remains dormant. East (Purva) Desire to do holy deeds The experience of these wakeful desires and emotions changes as the energy flows in the direction of different petals, activating the mental modifications (vrittis) connected with them. Charity Dullness, Laziness Tyaga acts of renouncing Vairagya mature detachment North (Uttara) Sexual desire Renunciation Anger, Cruelty South (Dakshina) In the dream state, energy from the spiritual heart flows towards the 8 petals of the Lotus, generating desires and emotional states that are experienced in the waking state. Movement Happiness, joy, playfulness: Lila West (Paschim) Desire to do Bad Deeds Within the Lotus there are the layers of the Sushumna: from fire, to sun, to moon, to the radiance at the center (Brahma nadi), where pure renunciation is experienced. From that center, the pure virtues arising from renunciation radiate out and express themselves through the pure petals of the heart. 6

7 The seed sound (Bija Mantra) of the heart Chakra is Yang the sound of the air element. The Kundalini, represented in the heart as a beautiful goddess (for the first time), undoes the second knot, Vishnu Granthi Within the heart, the pure sound of Aum is visualized as a pure, clear light. That light is experienced as the sound of Aum, the Anahata Nada or sound of the heart, and the sound is experienced as light. It is represented by the black antelope or musk deer, which is a symbol of the heart itself. The deer is restless, leaps with joy, and is caught by mirages and reflections. A special quality of the musk deer is that it is enchanted by the smell of musk. Not realizing that the fragrance arises from its own navel, the deer runs everywhere in search of that smell until he gets exhausted and lays down to rest. Curling up, the deer realizes that the smell is coming from his own navel. Graceful and gentle, the deer represents the nature of the heart chakra. The eyes of the deer symbolize purity and innocence, and the deer is said to die for the sound of pure sounds the inner sound or Anahata Nada, the sound of the heart. 7
