By-Yogacharya Prof Jaydev Dansana(Founder of Tadit Mantra Swaasa Yoga)
Tadit Mantra Swaasa Yoga assimilates Gaayatri Mantra with the practice of Yoga-byaayaam (yoga-exercises), yogaasanas (physical postures), and praaNaayaamas (breathing exercises/control of breath).
Any utterance, especially mantra (incantation) deals with Sabda Brahma (Primordial sound / God-manifesting sound). Sound is uttered to convey an idea to someone or some group to extract certain response; while producing a sound we don’t bother about spelling a word correctly.
Cyberscript in a way guides us in uttering a sound: the sound may pertain or belong to some language, or literature, or culture.

While teaching tymnastic yoga and learning it and practicing it we have to quote from kosali, odiaa, Bengali, hindi and English ; hence the need of cyberscript : but, for that reason let us not be bogged down to it. All except Brahma, the Supreme Principle, the epitome of absolute peace and bliss are indicators to guide us to attain that state. Let us move together on the spaceship Mother Earth with the massage of Param Shaanti (absolute or perfect peace.)
BIIJAMANTRA AND MAATR*KAA
Let us deal with this topic ‘biijamantra and maatr*kaa’ from three closely knitted quotes from Swami Vivekananda on Imagination-and-Kundalini :
1. Imagination properly employed is our greatest friend; it goes beyond reason and is the only light that takes us everywhere.
2. The more powerful the imagination the more quickly will the real result be attained and Kundalini awakened.
3. To raise the Kundalini is the complete object of Raajayoga.
Imagination best employed concerns susumnaa naadi , chakras, biijamantras and maatr*kaas. The naadis are the canals carrying life-current to the nooks and corners of the body: There are one crore and one naadis spread throughout the body: that one most important naadi is the susumnaa naadi that spreads inside the spinal cord in the subtlest way from the mulaaDhaar chakra at the base of the spinal cord to the sahasraara chakra at the crown: the other two very important naadis closely knitted with the susumnaa are idaa and pingalaa. These three naadis are conjoint at a point midway between the anus and the genitals which is called mulaaDhaar chakra, an imaginary celestial lotus with its thalamus and four petals: in Nuclear Metaphysics we designate this chakra as M4, M indicating the name of the chakra mulaaDhaar and 4 indicating the number of petals of the lotus: when the concentration practice of the yoga saaDhaaka stimulates the thalamus of M4 its throbbing produces the sound LM (pronounced as LANG): this LM is known as the biijamantra of mulaaDhaar chakra. When the petals of M4 throb they separately produce the sound vm shm sHm sm (pronounced as wang shang Shang sang): these sounds are known as maatr*kaas of M4, that is mulaaDhaar. This M4 is known in Indian Cultural Language (ICL) as yukta TribeNi: from this M4 on the left side of the saadHaka rises life-current upward along idaa naadi, and on the right side of the M4 rises life-current upward along pingalaa naadi. Thus inside the spinal cord of the yoga saadHaka practicing DhaaraNaa Dhyaana samaaDhi (together known as sanjama-saaDhanaa) rise three life-currents, one centrally along susumnaa, and two beside it—on its left along idaa, and on its right along pingalaa. As the life-currents move upward inside the spinal cord idaa and pingalaa criss-cross each other intertwining along suSumnaa. At the meeting points of the three life-currents sacred live power stations are generated known as different chakras. Above M4 is S6 (above the karmendriya paayu), known as swaaDhisTaana chakra: its biijamantra is VM (pronounced as wa^) and its maatr*kaas are bm bham mam ym rm lm (pronounced as ba^ bha^ ma^ ya^ ra^ la^.) Then, above S6, opposite the navel on the susumnaa naadi is maNipur chakra designated in Nuclear Metaphysics as M10: its biijamantra is RM (pronounced as ra^), and its maatr*kaas are dm dhm Nm Tm Thm Dm Dhm nm pm phm (pronounced as da^ dha^ Na^ Ta^ Tha^ Da^ Dha^ na^ pa^ pha^). Then, above M10, opposite to the hr*Daya-kuupa (heart-well) on the susumnaa is A12, anaahaTa chakra with 12 petals: its biijamantra is YM (pronounced as ya^), and its maatr*kaas are km khm gm ghm ua~ chm chhm jm jhm nia~ tm thm (pronounced as ka^ kha^ ga^ gha^ ua^ cha^ chha^ ja^ jha^ nia^ ta^ tha^). Then, above A12 is B16, opposite to kantha-kuupa (throat-well) on the suSumnaa: it is bishuDDhi chakra with 16 petals: its biijamantra is HM (pronounced as ha^), and its maatr*kaas are the vowels a aa i ii u uu r* rr* ae e ai o ou a^ a: a~, all incorporated in the symbol V. Then, above B16 is A2, opposite to the forehead; it is aagyaa~ chakra. A2 in ICL (Indian Cultural Language) is also known as mukTa TribeNi, because the three naaDi’s idaa, pingalaa and suSumnaa converge in this power house for the last time: thereafter suSumnaa naadi alone spreads up to the sahasraara chakra, designated as MS in Nuclear Metaphysics, M indicating 1000 and S indicating sahasraara, The bjjjamantra of A2, aagyaa~ chakra is om (pronounced as AUM), its maatr*kaas being hm and kSm (pronounced as ha^ and kSa^). The biijamantra of sahasraara chakra is Nm (pronounced as Na^); and its maatr*kaas are all letters from ‘a’ to ‘kSa^’, incorporated in the symbol L.
These biijamantras and maatr*Kaas are the bases of all mantras. When during saaDhanaa or yoga practice a person concentrates on them he stimulates the thalamus and maatr*kaas of different chakras and thereby effects a change in his body chemistry; this transforms the mind of the practitioner. This verily is the mechanism that evolves the mind and moulds a Baalmiki out of a Ratnaakara. This mechanism of mental evolution should be made compulsory in all schools and colleges and universities and HRD cells: this is the surest way to check corruption of the mind and society, and usher in peace, bliss and happiness in the society. This yogic practice is one of the surest ways to change mind, character, family, society and humanity. It is unfortunate that educationists and social scientists don’t yet know its efficacy. Let more and more individuals join the Absolute Peace Drive (APD)/ Param Shaanti Abhiyaan and raise the Spiritual Average Condition (SAC) of human beings: it is the PERFECTING INDIVIDUALS practicing tymnastic yoga who definitely expedite the mental evolution of homo sapiens. Swami Vivekananda says, “Physical evolution stops with man; thereafter continues mental evolution.” Pursuit of Nuclear Metaphysics and practice of Tymnastic Yoga definitely achieves it.
Now, we shall put together the chakras, biijamantras and matr*kaas, so that we know definitely the seats from which the different SOUNDS/ (SHABDA-BRHMAS) are emanating. They play a very important part in concentration-practice and raising Kundalini, which is the ultimate goal of yoga: the efficacy of a yoga-system is to be justified by this. Yoga, which is the goal of yogaabhyaasa/ practice of yoga is the eighth organ of aStaanga Yoga of MaharSi Patanjali is experienced and attained only by raising Kundalini: at this stage of yoga practice the siDDha saaDhakas/ the tymnasts experience samaaDhi of different intensities — sabikalpa, asampragyaa~Ta, nirbikalpa, sahajaananda and kaibalya: at this stage of consciousness is experienced ABSOLUTE BLISS/ param aananDa of ABSOLUTE PEACE/ param shaanTi. Educationists, social workers, social scientists, politicians, philosophers and spiritualists should take up this mental adventure, and lead humanity on the path of peace-and-bliss through practice of SANJAMA, that is DhaaraNaa+Dhyaana+samaaDhi.

CONCENTRATION-PRACTICE AND PERFECTING INDIVIDUALS
Remember, concentration makes all the difference between animal and man as between man and man. It is concentration that deepens into meditation which further deepens into samaaDhi: this samaaDhi is YOGA, and all other exercises are on the part of the practitioners only steps to experience, achieve, attain and be enriched and embellished. Thus we are to note that CONCENTRATION is the most important organ of yoga-practice. We in Tymnastics Formula No1. had stressed on getting by heart the formula and, know with certainty that we, the tymnasiasts and tymnasts are developing our physical and mental abilities. Formula No1. dealt with ‘Yogaabhyaasa o byakTiTTwara bikaasha’/ ‘Yoga-practice and Personality- development’. Tyms Formula No2 is ‘praak shaariirika cheTanaa panchaka’, which in English we render as ‘Pre- Physical Penta-consciousness’: we in our ‘Hourly Diary’ and ‘saaDhanaa daaaeri’ refer to this item as P cube (p3). All the yoga practitioners of Gangaadhar Meher Tymnasium everyday during ‘Utterances’ declaim this P cube (p3). A sincere tymnasiast gets by heart the following five ‘cheTanaas’: they mean in course of time to live or materialize in their personality the following 5 items of knowledge. All tymnastic yoga practitioners of Gangaadhar Meher Yogaalaya everyday utter the yogakriyaas in Kosali, whatever be their mother-tongue. In another tymnasium of Sambalpur town named Naaraayan Satsang Mahilaa Tadit Mantra Swaasa Yogaalaya,(Baidyanaath Chhak) the saDhikaas utter the following yoga-items or yogakriyaas in their fixed Hindi translation.
1. cheTanaa nambar ek: TadiT mantra swaasa joga aStaanga jogara kSepaNaastra aTe. aSTaanga joga—jama niyama aasana praaNaayaama praTyaahaara DhaaraNaa Dhyaana samaaDhi.: jama (5) ahi^saa saTya asTeya brahmacharya aparigraha: niyama (5) shoucha sanToSa Tapa swaaDhyaaya iishwara-praNiDhaana

English version of praak-shaariirika chetanaa panchaka (pre-physical penta-consciousness):
Consciousness No1: Tymnastics is the missile of Astaa^ga yoga. Astaa^ga Yoga : 1.yama (don’ts) 2.niyama (do’s) 3. aasana (physical postures) 4. praaNaayaama (control of breath) 5 pratyaahaara (rejection) 6. DhaaraNaa (concentration) 7. Dhyaana (meditation) 8. samaaDhi (trance) …Yama (don’ts)(5)—ahi^saa (non-violence), saTya (non-falsehood), asTeya (non-theft), brahmacharya (non-wastage), aparigraha (non-bribery). Niyama (do’s)(5)—shoucha (cleanliness), santoSa (contentment), Tapa (austerity), swaaDDhyaaya (study-and-introspection), iishwara praNiDhaana (prostration to Lord).
Consciousness No2: aSTaa^ga yoga are not 8 steps; they are practiced simultaneously.
Consciousness No3: Individual Will and Destiny: Endeavoring is individual will/ will-power; whatever is happening is to be thought of as the blessings of God, and accepted with consciousness and cheerfulness.
Consciousness No4: Lecture and Yoga: Lectures cannot effect change; application, application and application – union alone of knowledge with personality can effect change.
Consciousness No5:- Path and Goal: A step in the right direction is as good as reaching the goal.
Deliberation on Tyms Formula No2, we refer to as, P3 (P cube—Pre-Physical Penta-consciousness): In tymnastic yoga we attune the minds of saaDhakas (practitioners) of all levels to the idea of living an ABHUL life, that is, A1 Blissful Healthy Useful and Long life. As the tymnasiasts and tymnasts live their life they are to apply the ideas and thoughts ingrained in P3 (P cube). AND WHEN DO YOU APPLY ALL YOUR THOUGHTS AND IDEAS? Remember, there is no other time but NOW.
With the concept NOW also remember ‘present SECOND’— S for Sincerity, E for Enthusiasm, C for Cheerfulness. O for Ordinary Profoundly, N for Non-me and D for Dedication. Never forget that Life = Time = Present : there is no time but the Present SECOND. Remember the two concepts ABHUL and SECOND simultaneously: first—ABHUL, and second—SECOND.
Tymnastic yoga practitioners of Gangaadhar Meher Tymnasium deal with Gyaana Yoga (Utterances), Karma Yoga (Yoga Byaayaam ,Yogaasan and PraNaayaam) and Bhaki Yoga (DhaaraNaa, Dhyaana and SamaaDhi) in a major way in Kosali language the inhabitants of Kosal, wherever they be of the spaceship Mother Earth, carry their Kosali Self with them which is manifested in SabDa Brahma (primordial sound) through different languages such as Sanskrit, English, Hindi, Kosali, Bengali and Odiaa mainly. These languages work on the personality of the Kosalis and enrich it. One important issue the awakened Kosalis are very likely to miss is to know definitely about the NATURE of Kosali language, script,literature and culture.
Now that we have talked of CYBERSCRIPT and Tyms Formula No1 as ‘Yogaabhyaasa o byakTiTwara bikaash’, and Tyms Formula No2 as ‘P3’ (Praak shaariirika cheTanaa panchaka), we assign the status of Formula No3 to ‘ABHUL’ and Formula No4 to ‘SECOND’…. Jiiban kenTaa hebaar kaThaa ? Jiiban ABHUL hebaar kaThaa— A for A1 for ‘Excellent’ meaning ‘uTTama’; B for ‘Blissful’ meaning ‘aananDamaya; H for ‘Healthy’ meaning ‘susTha’ in all its four aspects—‘physical, mental, social and spiritual’, in Kosali referred to and understood as ‘shaariirik, maanasik, saamaajik and aaDhyaaTmik’; U for ‘Useful’ meaning ‘paropakaari’; and L for ‘Long’ meaning ‘Diirgha’. Thus while living life we are to be conscious that it becomes ‘Dirgha , susTha, paropakaari o aananDamaya—such a life becomes ‘A1/ excellent/ uTTama.’
Formula No4 is ‘jiibana = samaya = barTamaan (muhurTa): extend your mind to the concept’s English version ‘Life = Time =Present (SECOND). As you live your ABHUL life, also remember its ‘seconds’— S standing for ‘Sincerity’ (niSthaaparaTaa); E for ‘Enthusiasm’(uTsaaha); C for ‘Cheerfulness’ (prafullaTaa); O for ‘Ordinariness profound’ (saaDhaaraNaTaa mahaan); N for ‘Non-me’ (naah^=akarTaa=iishwarechchhaa); and D for ‘Dedication’ (samarpaNa). So, we are to live our ABHUL life ‘SECOND by SECOND’ Sincerely, Enthusiastically, Cheerfully, profoundly Ordinarily, Non-selfishly and Dedicatedly
