This body is made of earth and gold,
Sky and stars, rivers and oceans,
Masquerading as muscle and bone.
Every substance is here:
Diamonds and silver, magical elixirs,
Ambrosia that gives visions,
Herbs that nourish and heal.
The foundation of the planet,
Immortal magnetic iron,
Curculating the blood. - Vijnanana Bhairava Tantra / The Radiance Sutra's

🌙Fasting Ramadan and the Yogi's 5 Koshas🌙
.
#Yoga philosophy explains Atman (the self or the being) as composed of 5 koshas (sheaths) layered like the layers on an onion. These 5 koshas are:
#Annamaya: the physical layer (our body and food we eat).
#Pranamaya: the energetic layer (manifested in the breath and how we feel).
#Manomaya: the mind (how we self identify).
#Vijnanamaya: the intellect and wisdom (how we form our will).
#Anandamaya: absolute truth and bliss state (think how we are when in restful deep dreamless sleep).
.
In Islam - Ramadan is a month of physical, energetic, mental and spiritual cleansing.
Muslims around the world perform the following practices daily during Ramadan:
📍From dawn to sunset - we fast from eating and drinking, then carefully choosing how we hydrate and nourish our bodies during evening hours - thus cleansing our physical self ➡️annamaya kosha.
📍We fast from worldly desires, temptations, anger, and aggression. We prioritize compassion, kindness, giving, and community involvement - thus cleansing our energetic self ➡️ pranamaya kosha.
📍We increase our practices of meditation and self reflection - thus cleansing our mind ➡️ manomaya kosha.
📍We increase our prayers and devotion practices - thus connecting to our wisdom and the spiritual ➡️ vijnanamaya kosha.
📍We do these daily practices throughout the whole month to connect to our state of bliss ➡️ anandamaya kosha.
.
Ramadan Mubarak to all and especially to those observing it. May find peace in these blessed days.

5 senses... windows to the world. Our senses perceive and then our mind passes a judgement and/or forms a reaction based on our storehouse of memories and associations. Develop the pause. We don't need to be ruled by our patterned reactions or even by our senses. Yoga offers us the tools to cultivate the awareness that resides in a deeper place of knowing. Move to the heart and allow responses and actions to originate there. Therein lies the "key" to supreme intelligence. Intelligent awareness that rests, even, outside the physical form altogether. Put your senses to use: seek to understand your inner patterns. Put your senses to rest: go within to abide in broadest awareness. Notice your self to see you are not separate. This will give you the eyes to see clearly others, to listen to the truth which underscores all, the nose to smell a rat, the taste to speak love, and a touch of appreciation and gratitude for every. single. thing, and for everything...

Look at those wise eyes... 👀Vicky's on the fourth of five Koshas tomorrow night! It's vijnanamaya- whew, a mouthful! (Vijnana means “the power of judgment or discernment”). It’s often translated as “intellect,” but the real meaning is broader, encompassing all the functions of the higher mind, including thoughts, beliefs and wisdom. Vic will guide you through a fun physical flow that will help your understanding of this Kosha. ✌🏽 #livetolearn #koshaflow #fundlowthursdays #hotyoga #vijnanamaya #livingyoga

At the 300th page of my phenomenal @elizabeth_gilbert_writer book, the heroine realizes she was blaming the whole world for her pain, never realizing how much the world had done for her. How many people had sacrified their joy for her happiness. When we are deep into our own limited perspective and needs, the world can seem so unfair. But when we look at the whole picture, there is love and meaning in every turn of our lives. Why not? Why not trust a grander plan that doesn't involve pleasing us every step of the way?
Kindness is our strength. Taking moments to see life through other people's eyes, a pathway to mental sanity. When everything doesn't revolve around what can please us, we can see the other. And be kind to him 😊😘 #kindness #vijnanamaya #wisdom #ElizabethGilbert #humanconnection 🇫🇷Hier soir, j'ai été scotchée par le retournement de situation dans le livre que je lis. L'héroïne, pendant 312 pages, nous fait souvent de la peine car elle ne se considère pas assez jolie, appréciée, entourée, considérée. Et tout d'un coup, une personne qui la connaît lui dévoile tout ce que les autres ont sacrifié - pour elle. J'étais scotchée. Pour l'intrigue et pour ma propre vie.

Nous planifions souvent notre vie pour qu'elle nous arrange - nous - au maximum.

Hier soir, une chère élève m'a offert un bouquet de fleurs "sans raison" et non seulement je me suis sentie comme une reine pendant trois heures, mais ça m'a donné envie de retourner le compliment à dix autres personnes aujourd'hui. (Prépare toi, monde!) La gentillesse est notre force. Sortir de notre tête, notre devoir.

Chaque personne que nous rencontrons est entrain de faire face à des défis dont nous n'avons même pas idée toi et moi. La gentillesse vient du mot gens. Aimer les gens.

Tu as tant à donner au monde.

Don't just look- observe.

Don't just sleep- dream.

Don't just think - feel.

Don't just exist- live.

Surrender to what is. Let go of what was. Have faith in what will be...
Where ever you go- there you are. Love more, worry less.

FIVE KOSHAS: [Part 1]

In philosophy, the body, mind and spirit are understood as one continuity, but in fact eastern and western thought were never in agreement with each other. Western philosophy originated from Greece while eastern philosophy originated in India. Greek philosophers in general and western philosophers in particular spoke about the object. Indian philosophers in general and in particular spoke about consciousness, and for many centuries western thinkers could never accept anything beyond object as tangible: here is the object, I can see it, I can touch it, therefore it is.

However, in #yoga and in #Vedanta, object and consciousness are interrelated. In fact, modern science, what you call physics, speaks in exactly the same way as yoga. Both modern physics and ancient yoga move absolutely parallel to each other in explaining the reality of matter and consciousness.

Body, mind and spirit are interconnected, interrelated and interpenetrating. Therefore, a person is a combination of three things: firstly, the gross body, secondly, the subtle or astral body and thirdly, the causal body or unconscious. These three bodies constitute you, me and everyone, but they are gross divisions, broad classifications.

Each body has a dimension and a layer. You can call it a field. Just as you say electromagnetic field or radioactive field, in exactly the same way there are fields in your body. In vedanta, they are known as koshas which means ‘sheaths’. These koshas are five in number: annamaya, pranamaya, manomaya, vijnanamaya and anandamaya, and are further sub-divisions of the three bodies, which represent the three states of your daily experience.

Every day you have three types of experiences. One is the waking experience in which you experience through your senses and mind. The second experience is dream. In dream you do not experience through the senses, but through your subconscious mind. The third experience is sleep in which there is no knowledge of time and space, no knowledge about yourself or about anything in sleep, but when you get up in the morning, you know that you slept well the night before.

I keep getting this card.
This is the third time in a row. I'm getting a bit worried.

How I lay the cards lately is body-mind-spirit, what I see more as the physical (annamaya kosha) - where your dealings with the outer world are concerned, the vital/energy body (pranamaya kosha) - dealing with emotions and thoughts, and the combination of mind/intellect (manomaya and vijnanamaya koshas) - the knowledge/knowing.This card came in the position of annamaya/physical, twice.
And now I took a single card for guidance about a certain situation. This card again. The Tower.

Join our retreat and and bath in this kosha: http://www.leisatimms.com/yoga-retreat.html

vijnanamaya kosha
Wisdom

You begin working with the first three bodies as soon as you start practicing yoga.

#Coordinating your breath with your movement brings you present on your mat—synchronizing your physical, energetic, and mental bodies. However, the next layer, your wisdom body, takes a little more internal #awareness that is cultivated over time.

Beneath the constant stream of thoughts, feelings, and sensations (the processing, thinking, and reactive mind), lies an inner knowing and higher intelligence in your wisdom body, which is called the #vijnanamaya #kosha, from vijnana, or “intellect.” Your #intuition, #conscience, and the reflective aspects of your consciousness are all part of your #wisdom body. Here, we develop our awareness and deeper insight into the nature of who we are and how we relate to the world around us.

The #practice of #yoga helps quiet the mental body so that our wisdom body can be heard and begin to guide us. One simple way to start working with your vijnanamaya kosha is to simply pay attention to any sensations or pulsations taking place internally throughout your practice.

For example, after a Bridge Pose or backbend, once you’re back down on your mat, close your eyes, feel the sensations taking place on the inside, and become aware of your heartbeat.

First day of my short course in the foundations of meditation "Take a Seat" @yogarisepeckham 🙏🏻


We discussed the Pancha Kosha's (the layers or "sheaths" of being & experience) as a way to cultivate steady awareness and connection with the Ātman (space and presence.) Noticing our natural tendencies to attach and narrate around the Maya/fluctuations, we worked towards holding a conscious and truthful space around them and ourselves 👌🏻❤️✨

Workshop com Rita Keller da Alemanha.✨✨Menopausa 🙏🏻 O asana tem a capacidade de transformar, em cada asana a mente deve tomar seu acento; a permanência no asana
precisa ser estendida para que a consciência se estenda, a permanência te leva à mudança!

Inward Journey of Yoga
According to yogic philosophy every person has five bodies, each made of increasingly finer grades of energy, from the denser physical body to the finer spiritual. In order to live a healthy, well balanced life, all of these bodies need to be exercised and kept in good condition.
1. Annamaya/Physical Body- Encompasses nourishment to the body by food. Eat foods that will nourish your body
2. Pranamaya/Energy Body-the breath of life. We exercise this by practicing yogic breathing through asana practice and meditation
3. Manomaya/Mind Feelings and Emotions-it’s what makes you who you are and you are different than me. “It processes input from our five senses and responds reflexively” like a beating heart in coma patient. This kosha can be enhanced by meditation
4. Vijnanamaya /Thoughts and Beliefs-this is comprised of the intellect. We exercise this by continually learning.
5. Anandamaya/Bliss/Joy-this is the unconscious body that continues to function when the mind and body are sleeping. I like to describe this as coming closer to God or awareness of your divine nature.
