Asana Asana

Hatha yoga is inseparably linked to Raja yoga. This connection is explained as based on the nature of the perfect, nondual state, attained by the Yogi in samadhi. It means the nature of Perfection originally involves the unity of these two yogas.

Accordingly, irrespective of our perception of asana, it primarily contains "the stable light state in which the mind remains in its authentic form". I believe it is what one should strive for.

Bhakti Bhakti

One of the most important things in the Natha tradition is stability. Bhakti (devotion) is expressed in stability; bhakti happens when we sacrifice ourselves, our body, our breathing and our mind to Alakh Niranjan. Alakh Niranjan is manifested in us, as well as in a Guru. Stable adherence to a Guru, stable asana, stable breathing and stable consciousness, rooted in God – these things are important for the yoga adept.

Gorakshanath Gorakshanath

Gorakshanath is a certain tattva (essence), it represents the state of yogic perfection, and it’s in us. The aim of the worship of Gorakshanath is to feel his perfect condition in yourself. Gorakshanath means "the one who controls the senses". For this reason, we consider him as a protector of yogic way and followers of any dharma, also Gorakshanath is the patron of the Dharma. Gorakshanath is the symbol of Shunya (emptiness) therefore few people can feel him.

Prana and pranayama Prana and pranayama

Prana is usually associated with consciousness, and with his work. Also prana is associated with breathing, but prana means "vital energy", and it especially manifests itself in breathing, because breathing is important function in our organism. But all other processes in the body such as metabolism, digestion, temperature, operation of the nervous system, reproductive, circulatory, muscular and other depend on prana. If you slow down some functions, the prana spent on their activity is preserved and resource of prana becomes bigger.

In Hinduism vāmāchāra is considered to be a closed form of worship. It is closed for many reasons, three of them, the most significant, are listed below.

Thus, cognizing this micro-universe in own body, Nath comes to the comprehension of the whole creation.

The body of human being consists of Gross body (Sthula sharira), Subtle body (Sukshma sharira) and Causal body (Karana sharira).
