Gita jayanti, srimad bhagavad gita, swara yoga

Gita jayanti is an auspicious occasion to contemplate on the message of srimad bhagavad gita for application in our daily life.

Srimad bhagavad gita is high level communication between Bhagwan krishna and arjuna before the war of mahabharata.

We must remember here that this was an extraordinary conversation in higher level language, that’s why it’s done in the middle of two armies just at the start of the war. We humans usually communicate in vaikhari vani or gross speech of spoken word but advanced yogis can communicate in silence or para vani/pashyanti/madhyama so it is possible to communicate advanced knowledge in short time which is difficult to understand by common man. 

Gita jayanti is celebrated on ekadasi because it is day when lord krishna communicated the message of bhagavad gita on that lunar day( 11- mokshada ekadasi, shukla paksha or waxing moon, margashirsha ).

There is a traditional way to approach the gita jayanti and study shrimad bhagvad gita and deeper we go we can contemplate and try to understand deeper meaning which can be applied in yogic way.

Yoga as union of atma to paramatma is described in a special way in srimad bhagavad gita and all 18 chapters of gita suggest different phases through which the soul passes in search of god.  

Swara yoga is the yoga of rhythm of breath and pancha tattva in breath which can be applied to our daily life. 

As per shiva swarodaya swara or breath is an expression of soul and when you regularly tune your swara cycle with the cosmic cycle of sun and moon you are in tune with the subtle rhythm of nature.

And this tuning is going on naturally in every individual but due to different body-mind-environmental factors our swara can run opposite to the cosmic rhythm which we have to tune.

One of the best time for tuning or aligning or checking natural alignment of our swara cycle with cycle of sun and moon is during morning-sunrise time on waxing and waning moon phases which is given in detail in another post of this blog or my ebook on swara yoga in detail

By being in tune with cosmic cycle our swara or breath run in different durations during day and night and  being aware of swara and tattva in form of breath can help us to settle us in witness mode or sakshi bhava  or observer mode or mindfullness which is starting point of yoga for self realization and when we practice this sakshi bhava or observer practice our awareness can start to expand  if we persists with intensity and we may passes through different phases on our journey of expanding awareness or self realization as suggested by srimad bhagavad gita in18 chapters.

And while being in sakshi bhava and praying and remembering to god will keep us in touch of bhakti yoga and doing daily action with sakshi bhava or observer mode can keep us in mode of karma yoga and growing in awareness or sakshi bhava can keep us in mode of jnana yoga which is amazing way to integrate message of gita in our daily life for health,fitness,success and happiness.

So this is simple and one of the best ways to approach the gita as per little understanding of me which can be helpful for people on this auspicious day.
