    Hi there,

    I thought i should mention it here, as it has absolutly wonderful effects on my meditation. After about 2 months of using AYP, i feel bliss rising up through every meditation and througout the day. While doing pranayama, im sometimes near an orgasm... thats of course not the reason for its existence, but i can recommend it to anyone instead of viagra ;-)

    AYP Home Page - Free Lessons in Meditation, Pranayama, Kundalini, Tantra

    An integral, open source yoga system which has unbelievable bliss effects.

    Just were in a, about 30min long samadhi like state. Again, i just can recommend this path to everyone, who wants to experience his true inner self, and is maybe as resistant as i was ;-)

    Ok that probably was no samadhi state, now that i even know what samadhi is :)
    But blissfull or ecstatic indeed.

    Yogananda says, a normal human beeing needs 1-2 million years development by nature, and just a few to maximum about 50 years by doing kriya yoga (which has similar techniques then ayp). Sounds useful somehow. Does this fit into the category advertising? :)

    50 years kriya yoga to reach what ?

    Union with what some may call god. Have you ever had any samadhi? This state, where one stops breathing and is absolutly one with the cosmos and god.

    All these realizations that many people have, can be realized through meditation, if one is ready for it. But its a difference to just deeply realize the truth, or to be it. Where there are no physical and mental borders anymore, even in the human body.

    Just my point of view. For me just the mantra changed, and i added some pranayama, but it had markable effects.

    I've been reading through that site since you posted it. I think I'm gonna try adding Pranayama to my practice, it sounds very interesting and rather easy to do.

    I've decided to give it a go. Do you just use pranayama, Pan?

    For anyone who was following this thread or wondering about if this works, I would recommend doing pranayama before meditation. I've been doing that for a little while now and it really does prime you for meditation. I've been doing pranayama for 5-7 minutes, then relax a bit, then start my mantra. I don't worry about the length of the session or really anything else during meditation anymore. I let it go its own way and release whatever arises. The quality of the sessions has improved since I incorporated it into my practice. And i'm still on LF10...I feel like there's more to be experienced on this level since I started it with pranayama.

    Since it is so powerful, i've experienced some smaller emotional upheavals than I remember experiencing with just the mantra. It's always the following day though. When I do it, it's at night before I go to bed, I feel completely clean, relaxed, and light. When I wake up, I usually feel a bit off...but it's not completely off-balancing...

    It's just getting rid of what was going to come out regardless. :)

    Oh sorry Midnight, seems like i missed your post! My practice is as recommended by AYP, 10 minutes of pranayama (spinal breath) and 20 minutes of meditation (I AM mantra), followed by 5 minutes of samyama (very powerful, recommended) - twice a day.

    Maybe the nearly 1,5 years with LF have build a solid ground for my experiences now, but AYP feels very intense and strong for me, and since im doing it, inner changes are going on.

    Im glad you tried it, so you can see how powerful pranayama is :) :)

    I'm glad you posted about it, Pan, because it's awesome.

    I didn't know there was a breathing exercise to be done afterward, i'll incorporate that in and see how it goes.

    Also, I wanted to correct a typo in my other post: "Since it is so powerful, i've experienced some larger emotional upheavals than I remember experiencing with just the mantra"

    I had said smaller before, but what meant to say is that I had more upheavals than I did before, but they were smaller in intensity to a huge one. Hope that made sense

    Perfectly :)

    Samyama is no breathing technique, to be true - its a sort of letting go. All well described in the lessons :)

    Ah, yeah I read about it. I don't know why I typed out that it was a breathing exercise. But yeah, it sounds really interesting and I will let you know how it goes!

    Pranayama - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Prana is the indian name for what the Japanese call Ki (as in ReiKi) and the Chinese call Chi (as in Tai Chi). It refers to the energy or life force that is in every thing in the universe, and the breath is often seen as a flow of a part of this energy around the body.

    Yama mean to restrain or control.

    Thus PranaYama refers to a controlling of the breath of energy flow.

    An update for you all:

    I highly recommend adding pranayama and samyama to your meditation practices. You can read about it on the site Pan posted in the first post. I won't really say more because you should experience it for yourself :)

    I found this last night and was thinking of trying it and since it seems to be positive for everyone I'll jump on the wagon as well. I'm not a fan of mantra however, its like words don't resonate with me very well. I like listening to nature sounds and I can feel my energy surging in harmony with what i hear. Maybe I'll try again or maybe I'll try a different mantra.
