    Bone Marrow cleansing - the Science of Kriya Yoga

    Hello all,

    One of the Bone Marrow cleansing techniques that Sigung teaches on the spine level is actually an ancient Yogic technique to help cleanse karma for full self-realization. Basically, the technique is simply to send Chi up and down the spine. (Note for beginners - this is very powerful).

    Sigung has stated that sending Chi to the bone marrow level cleanses deep karma.

    I was reading “An Autobiography of a Yogi” by Parahamsa Yogananda, and in one chapter, he describes the effect of this exercise on a long-term basis.

    It’s very fascinating to say the least!


    Excerpt is provided below. Enjoy:

    The Kriya Yogi mentally directs his life energy to revolve, upward and downward, around the six spinal centers which correspond to the twelve astral signs of the zodiac, the symbolic Cosmic Man. One-half minute of revolution of energy around the sensitive spinal cord of man effects subtle progress in his evolution; that half-minute of Kriya equals one year of natural spiritual unfoldment.

    The astral system of a human being, with six (twelve by polarity) inner constellations revolving around the sun of the omniscient spiritual eye, is interrelated with the physical sun and the twelve zodiacal signs. All men are thus affected by an inner and an outer universe. The ancient rishis discovered that man's earthly and heavenly environment, in twelve-year cycles, push him forward on his natural path. The scriptures aver that man requires a million years of normal, diseaseless evolution to perfect his human brain sufficiently to express cosmic consciousness.

    One thousand Kriya practiced in eight hours gives the yogi, in one day, the equivalent of one thousand years of natural evolution: 365,000 years of evolution in one year. In three years, a Kriya Yogi can thus accomplish by intelligent self-effort the same result which nature brings to pass in a million years. The Kriya short cut, of course, can be taken only by deeply developed yogis. With the guidance of a guru, such yogis have carefully prepared their bodies and brains to receive the power created by intensive practice.

    The Kriya beginner employs his yogic exercise only fourteen to twenty-eight times, twice daily. A number of yogis achieve emancipation in six or twelve or twenty-four or forty-eight years. A yogi who dies before achieving full realization carries with him the good karma of his past Kriya effort; in his new life he is harmoniously propelled toward his Infinite Goal.

    The body of the average man is like a fifty-watt lamp, which cannot accommodate the billion watts of power roused by an excessive practice of Kriya. Through gradual and regular increase of the simple and "foolproof" methods of Kriya, man's body becomes astrally transformed day by day, and is finally fitted to express the infinite potentials of cosmic energy the first materially active expression of Spirit.


    Best wishes,

    Note for beginners - definitely not something to be attempted without being taught

    Thank you - yes, I also meant to say that do not attempt without supervision of a master.

    Yogananda mentions the same thing in the text above as well as to guard against overtraining. A normal human body is similar to a fifty watt lamp and this exercise will generate billions of watts of power.

    I find it fascinating that the Yogis have discovered that our spines and chakras correspond to the outer movements of the 12 zodiac signs. Cleansing the spine with energy essentially neutralizes our past karma and beats the effects of time by having our body evolve internally.

    Yogananda appears to be saying that 30 seconds of this exercise can evolve your development 1 year forward. So 6 minutes can push you forward 12 years. If you think of where you are now (physically, spiritually and mentally) versus 12 years ago, I'm sure a lot would have changed for the better.

    Best wishes,
    Stephen
