Daily Sadhana Practices
The context of The Soma Kriya Shakti Teaching is derived from the Rig Veda, an Ancient text dating back to around 2500 or 3000BC arguably recognised as the oldest religious texts.
This was an era where worship was not based on any particular idol but on the formless essence of God. There were 33 Gods during the Vedas that were worshipped which are given below :
12 Adityas which represented the Sun God
8 Vasus which represented the elements like Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Ether, etc 11 Maruts associated with God of wind and storms
2 Ashwins associated with God of health and medicine
These 33 Gods were associated with nature itself (within and outside of us) and what is worshipped is the formless energetic essence of these Gods invoked through chants and prayers. Most chants, hymns and prayers in the Rig Veda however were directed towards invoking three main deities:
Indra was considered as a heroic God full of energy and virility. Agni, the sacrificial fire, was considered as a purifying God. Soma, the elixir, was the God of nectar, ever flowing bliss and joy with healing propensity.
The purpose of The Soma Kriya Shakti Teaching is primarily focused on these 3 deities and the qualities they represent:
Indra – Self empowerment through inner wisdom
Agni – Self Purification through inner ceremonial offering to fire within
Soma – Self expansion and healing through inner juice or RASA
All suffering is self created. It happens when we go against our true and real nature of ever expansiveness, uninterrupted bliss and authentic offering for self purification. This creates self contraction which develops knots or blockages within our physical and energetic body causing a host of physical and mental diseases. Unless we don’t remove spiritual ignorance that creates suffering in the first place,we won’t be able to attain lasting peace, happiness and success in our material and spiritual life.
Through the Soma Kriya Shakti Sadhana, we are able to address this by reversing the old habitual self-contracting patterns and replacing them by what is inherently our true natural state of bliss and ananda (SATCHITANANDA) through a step by step KS-way of invoking the Divine powers of these 3 Vedic deities.
