Siddha Nyasa is quite effective and beneficial Nyasa (trust). We are the beneficiaries of the generous trust set by Dr. Swami Hardas, inventor and founder of Swami Hardas Life System. The problems like physical diseases, mental disorders, sleep disorders, sleep talking, sleep paralysis, sleepwalking, sleep inertia, night terrors, sleep apnea, anger, fear, tension, stress, anxiety, hypertension, lack of concentration, memory loss, depression, etc are effectively solved with regular practice of Siddha Nyasa.
What does Nyasa mean?
In Hinduism, nyasa is a spiritual ritual that involves a series of touches in specific locations on the body. This is done by a “seer,” or rishi, who chants a specific mantra to “place” it on a body part. It is thought that this ritual imparts the presence of a deity in the body, or makes the body of the individual more divine.
In Sanksrit, nyasa means “placing” or “touching.” In Tantric yoga or meditation, practitioners may lay hands on themselves or mentally “place” a mantra in specific locations on the body.
What does Siddha Nyasa mean?
Siddha Nayasa is an outcome of rigorous penance performed in the year 1989 by Dr. Swami Hardas through which, He received unique and pious Siddha energy from Lord Shiva and Siddha Gorakshanath for the welfare of everyone on this earth. Siddha Nyasa is one method among many others invented by Dr. Swami Hardas. It needs no specialty or mastery to practice and avail of the desired benefits.
Physiology of Siddha Nyasa
Before we know how to do Siddha Nyasa, we need to know about the following 36 points of our body:
|Legs (for veins)
|Agya chakra (in between two eyebrows)
|Sahasrara chakra (top center of the head)
These are 18+18=36 points of our body, which are easily identified and can be easily memorized. In addition to the above, if there is any such point, which has pain or trouble, the same can also be included in the sequence of the above.
How to perform Siddha Manaspooja?
If our life runs with the grace of His Almighty, then it is full of satisfaction, happiness, and peace, etc. Keeping these intentions at the highest level, Siddha Manaspooja (mind worship with Siddha method) has been created which is most important and gives success in achieving our pious goal immediately. Many practitioners have experienced this. This is one kind of Sadhana, which has been categorized into three parts i.e. (1) Shavasana, (2) Pronouncing Om, and (3) Manaspooja (mind worship). The time of performing this Siddha Manaspooja is especially before going for sleep or whenever the time is available.
Method of Siddha Manaspooja
Spread carpet or bed sheet on the plain ground/floor and lie down straight on the back. Give a support of a thin soft pillow under the head. Make both the legs apart; the distance between them must be one to one and a half feet. Hands should be by the side of the body, palm, toes, and head pointing towards the roof or sky.
Start deep breathing like it is done while sleeping. Maintain deep breathing, and get ready for step 3.
Now concentrate and gather your complete energy, which is to be placed (imaginary) in between both the eyebrows i.e. at Agya Chakra. This will control and help the body to be in condition like a dead body. This is called ‘Shavasana’, the first category of Siddha Manaspooja.
After attaining this position, start reciting Om during deep breathing. The first letter O of Om should be uttered at long length while exhaling with making a mouth shape like a pot having a narrow mouth and while inhaling M of Om should be completed by shutting the mouth. Both these actions should be performed slowly and at a long length. The waves created while uttering Om are called Alfa Waves. This action should be repeated a number of times with a break for a while.
This performance is called pronouncing of Om, the second category of Siddha Manaspooja. It should be performed peacefully, with concentration, having no tension on the body, and in a natural way. The third category of Siddha Manaspooja (mind worship) should be performed with the continuous pronunciation of Om.
What are the benefits of Siddha Manaspooja?
This Manaspooja, being the most important Sadhana, gives the following benefits:
- The tension of the body, the mind is removed and physical and psychological health is achieved.
- Pranshakti (life energy) is collected and stored.
- Aatmashakti (soul energy) is developed.
- Concentration and memory are developed and control on the mind is ensured.
- Most importantly, our God gets satisfied, who cares for us from all the way. The expected/unexpected obstacles are avoided, drishtanth is experienced during sleep and we get the required guidance from time to time. Such dreams should not be considered like normal dreams.
This way, Siddha Manaspooja gets completed, which creates positive energy in our life. Learning of Manaspooja has been explained to help/guide you to successfully perform Siddha Nyasa for achieving numerous benefits.
How to practice Siddha Nyasa
Method step by step
The following method of Siddha Nyasa is to be adopted and practiced step by step for the well-being of any person irrespective of sex and age:
Step 1: Spread carpet or bed sheet on the floor, lie down on the back keeping whole body tensionless. Keep a thin pillow under the head. Repeat 1st and 2nd steps of Siddha Manaspooja about 7 to 8 times as explained earlier.
Step 2: Remember your favorite God and recite a related mantra keeping the live image in mind. Any person of any age or sex can recite the mantra of his or her own choice. There is no specific mantra for practicing Siddha Nyasa. Those, who adopted Siddha methods, should use the Siddha mantra as per their choice.
Step 3: Now, concentrate your mind on each point of your body (as mentioned in the above table) starting from Toe to head. Recite mantra 3 times on each point in sequence i.e. from ‘Toe’ to ‘Center of the head’. In case if there is any such point, which is affected by pain or trouble, the mantra should be recited at that point 7 to 8 times and to be ended at the last point.
This way, after finishing the first round, repeat it the second and third time. Sometimes, you may fall asleep but there is no need to worry. This kind of sleep is good since it is considered as ‘Nidra Samadhi’.
This Siddha Nyasa may be performed after the performance of Manaspooja.
Health benefits of Siddha Nyasa
The following benefits are achieved by performing Siddha Nyasa:
- The points where you concentrate and recite the mantra, they receive Pran Shakti. So the point(s) will become free from the problem and become energetic.
- During the mantra chanting, most of the time you will fall asleep. It is considered Nidra Samadhi (deep and devout meditation) and hence drishtanth (an illustration) will be experienced, which will help solve most of the problems if any.
- The problems of sleep disorders will be solved and peaceful sleep will be gained.
- After a few days’ practice of Siddha Nyasa, eyes and face will begin to glow.
- Calms the central nervous system, aiding the digestive and immune systems
- Calms the mind and reduces stress, and anxiety
- Reduces headache, and fatigue
- Helps lower blood pressure
- Promotes spiritual awakening and awareness of higher consciousness
This is one kind of sadhana and is very much effective because while performing Siddha Nyasa, Sthool Mana (Gross Mind) is towards the points of the body and Sukshma Mana (Subtle Mind) is concentrated on reciting a mantra. This way, maximum benefits can be achieved effectively from the Siddha Nyasa, which is easy to practice, and hence everyone should perform it regularly for well-being.
How Nyasa is explained?
Nyasa is often performed before or during pujas (acts of reverence), at the hands of a seer, or by the individual who is chanting or meditating. There are different types of nyasa practice. Some of the most common are:
- Rishi nyasa
- Kara nyasa
- Matrika nyasa
- Sadanga nyasa
In some nyasa practices, a mantra from a book is considered ineffective. Instead, it is believed that the mantras should be produced by a rishi.
However, the Siddha mantras have already been made effective by Dr. Swami Hardas so that practitioners can avail the benefits of Siddha Nyasa just by reading this article.
The relaxation, meditation, and visualization exercises, also called Yoga Nidra that are used at the end of Yoga practice, and during which, practitioners place efforts of relaxation on specific body parts – originally stem from mental Nyasa rituals.
