As a culture that takes reincarnation for granted, yogis discovered that all past lives leave samskaras or memory traces in the mind field. In a deeply quiet mind, these more subtle impressions can be examined. For the average person, keeping track of this lifetime is complicated enough! The Dalai Lama has said that he clearly remembered his incarnations when very young, but by the age of seven or eight, they had faded away. Maybe He had more pressing things to attend to! SUTRA 3.18 is now mentioning SAMSKARAS again and that if we focus, meditate and get absorbed into these SAMSKARAS (the impressions of the mind collected along the way in this life or past lifes if you will), we will remember. Yay, mystic powers… siddhis…
In the Panchatantra, an ancient Indian collection of moral fables, siddhi may be the term for any unusual skill or faculty or capability.
Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras
In Patañjali’s Yoga Sutras IV.1 it is stated, Janma auṣadhi mantra tapaḥ samādhijāḥsiddhayaḥ, „Accomplishments may be attained through birth, the use of herbs, incantations, self-discipline or samadhi“.
And then there is JALANDHARA BANDHA, also known as the “throat lock” becauseit involves bending your head forward so your chin presses into your neck. Understandably, it’s associated with Vishuddhi Chakra, or Throat Chakra. In kriya practice, this lock is often used with pranayama. It helps you to concentrate and to relax your mind while sitting, bringing your attention to the breath. And we will jalandhara Bandha today…. And the Bandhas would go in the category of the self discipline practices on the YOGA path.
Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything. Says PLATO so holds its own SIDDHIes, mystical magical powers…
Giving soul to the universe and wings to the mind are these flight captains of imagination…
