Recommended by Nandhi since there is a high degree of similarity in the ancient yoga of the Siddhar Sages that is called Turiya Yoga and Sri Yogani’s Advanced Yoga Practice “AYP”.
Sri. Yogani does a great service to offer from heart online the vast esoteric wisdom in practical steps anyone can take.

FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES of AYP (similar to Siddhar Tantira Yoga and in clarity taught)
1. Attraction to truth and/or God, expressed as desire It is Love.
2. Purification and opening. A process every human nervous system is
naturally inclined to go through.
3. Inner silence Pure bliss consciousness, our native state that
shines though our nervous system as purification and opening occur.
4. Ecstasy Experienced when our nervous system is stimulated by the
awakening our inner life-force.
5. Union our transformation to a permanent state of compassionate
unity, the fruition of the merging of our inner silence and ecstasy
It is Love.
These fundamental principles of enlightenment begin with love and end
with love. It is love that leads us through human spiritual
transformation involving the purification and opening of our nervous
system, which reveals the principles of inner silence and ecstatic
conductivity in us, and their merging. To accomplish this,
love employs the methods of yoga, which take advantage of
natural abilities we all have that are associated with the five
fundamental principles. Let’s list those abilities now:
1. The ability that desire, consistently applied toward an objective,
has to move our inner and outer expressions of energy (life-force) in
ways that fundamentally change our experience of life.
2. The ability our mind has to move naturally toward stillness. This
is awareness without any objects also called inner silence, or pure
3. The ability of the mind to effortlessly refine the thought of a
sound, naturally bringing the mind to stillness over and over again.
Certain sounds resonate with certain aspects of our nervous system.
These sounds can be used selectively to stimulate the nervous system
toward an orderly transformation.
4. The mind-body connection that enables naturally cultivated
stillness of mind to induce stillness of our body, metabolism, and
breath. This is the connectedness of yoga, experienced in many ways
through our opening nervous system.
5. The ability of our nervous system to naturally sustain the quality
of stillness, our silent blissful inner consciousness, even when it
is not being cultivated. This is called a state of “silent
witnessing,” among other things.
6. The ability of restraint and regulation of breath to influence the
flow of life-force in the nervous system, producing a sensation of
relaxation and, ultimately, feelings of ecstasy in the body.
7. The ability of inner silence and the flow of life-force in the
body to remove obstructions lodged deep in our nervous system,
purifying and opening our awareness gradually to an expanding
experience of inner peace, creative energy, happiness, and love.
8. The ability of restraint and regulation of breath to “awaken” the
vast storehouse of life-force located in our pelvic region — sexual
energy that is drawn upward in our nervous system to compensate for a
reduced intake of oxygen when the breath is gently restrained.
9. The ability of attention to influence the flow of the life-force
in the body, especially when combined with restraint and regulation
10. The ability of certain nerves and nerve plexuses to be stimulated
physically to enhance and direct the flow of life-force in the body.
11. The ability of the neuro-biology in the center and front of the
head (the third eye) to connect with and direct (control) the neuro-
biology near the base of the spine and the vast storehouse of life-
force (sexual energy) in that region.
12. The ability of the nerve in the center of the spine to conduct
the life-force and ecstatic energy between the pelvic region and the
third eye. This is called the spinal nerve.
13. The ability of the spinal nerve to radiate life-force and
ecstatic energy throughout the entire body, enlivening every aspect
of the higher neuro-biology within us in a smooth and orderly way.
This is the rise of permanent ecstatic conductivity.
14. The ability of the nervous system to amplify the power of a
thought when the thought is initiated deep in inner silence, yielding
great purifying effects in the body and surrounding environment.
15. The ability of inner silence and ecstatic energy to merge and be
sustained as one self-conscious presence in our nervous system. This
is experienced as ecstatic bliss. This we come to know as the
expression of our Self.
16. The ability of ecstatic bliss to flow out from us to our
surroundings as divine love. Then we find our Self in the form of all
we encounter. This is the natural flowering of divine love in service
to all beings.
All of these abilities exist in us, and only need some nudging to
begin to manifest changes in how our nervous system is functioning.
With the full range of advanced yoga practices, we can do a lot of
nudging, stimulating every natural ability we have that can move us
along the path of human spiritual transformation.
Everyone reacts a little differently to the processes of stimulation
through yoga practices, due to the differences we each have in the
structure of inner obstructions that are to be steadily and safely
dissolved. We all can make the journey of transformation through
yoga. It is only a matter of managing the conduct of our practices.
This we call, “self-pacing.”
We have built up an integrated system of practices that stimulate the
activation of the abilities listed above, bringing to our conscious
experience the fulfillment of the five fundamental principles.
Let’s now list the practices for review.
1. Cultivation of desire for practices bhakti (love of truth and/or
God in the heart). Bhakti/desire is the engine that drives all yoga
practices. We accomplish it by favoring a chosen high ideal (ishta)
with all of our desires and emotions, whether they are positive or
negative. In this way, a huge momentum driving us toward
enlightenment is created within us and around us. Then everything we
need to progress on our journey is drawn to us magnetically,
including the willpower to engage in daily advanced yoga practices
for as long as it takes to complete our journey.
2. Deep meditation with the mantra “I AM” (plus two mantra
enhancements along the way). Meditation involves easily favoring the
mantra to bring the mind (and body) to stillness over and over again
twice daily, stimulating deep purification in our nervous system, and
yielding permanent inner blissful silence.
3. Spinal breathing pranayama, the primary practice for awakening
and balancing the life-force in the spinal nerve between the third
eye and root. The life-force is also called kundalini.
4. Enhancements to spinal breathing using throat opening on
inhalation, restricted epiglottis during exhalation, and tracing
ascending cool currents and descending warm currents in the spinal
nerve during inhalation and exhalation. These enhancements increase
stimulation of the life-force in the spinal nerve.
5. Mulabandha/asvini manipulations using the anal sphincter muscle
to awaken the life-force (kundalini) at the root.
6. Sambhavi a means for producing direct physical stimulation of
the neurological mechanisms of the third eye in the head, involving
raising and centering of the eyes toward the point between the
eyebrows, and slightly furrowing the brow. Controlled and stable
stimulation of kundalini at the root and throughout the nervous
system is achieved in this way.
7. Asanas (postures) systematic bending and stretching of the body
that is a natural complement to spinal breathing pranayama and deep
meditation. Asanas help cultivate and purify the nervous system.
8. Siddhasana a powerful way of sitting during practices for
awakening kundalini at the root. The heel is placed firmly at the
perineum, and constant stimulation of sexual energy is achieved. Over
time, the entire nervous system is illuminated by this procedure,
performed effortlessly during all sitting advanced yoga practices.
9. Yoni mudra kumbhaka a practice that helps open the third eye
with air pressure in the nasal passages and sinuses, and awakens the
life-force/kundalini in the entire nervous system through kumbhaka
(breath retention) and associated mudras and bandhas.
10. Tantric sexual relations (the holdback method) similar to the
dynamics of siddhasana and used during sexual relations with or
without a partner. Tantric sex is a powerful way to enliven and
distribute the life-force (kundalini) throughout the body.
11. Kechari mudra (four stages) raising the tongue upward in stages
to (1) the roof of the mouth, (2) above the soft palate to the
spiritually erogenous edge of the nasal septum, (3) to the top of the
nasal pharynx cavity, and (4) to the point between the eyebrows
through the spiritually sensitive nasal passages. Entering stage 2
kechari is one of the most dramatic transitions in all advanced yoga
practices. It is a primary stimulator of kundalini, and a major cause
of the rise of permanent ecstatic conductivity in the nervous
12. Uddiyana bandha and nauli stimulating the upward movement of
kundalini using the diaphragm and abdominal muscles. Nauli involves
twirling the abdominal muscles, and is highly stimulating to
13. Dynamic jalandhara (chin pump), with or without kumbhaka (breath
retention). This is rotating the head while systematically dropping
it toward the chest with each rotation, stimulating ecstatic energies
between the heart and head, and throughout the body.
14. Samyama, the process of initiating and releasing particular
thoughts (sutras) deep within our inner silence, producing powerful
purifying effects throughout the nervous system. The effects can
manifest as so-called supernormal powers, which are called siddhis.
Samyama is done for spiritual purification.
15. Spinal bastrika, rapid breathing in the spinal nerve between the
third eye and root, which dramatically accelerates the purification
of the spinal nerve, and the entire nervous system.
16. Targeted bastrika, for the third eye, throat, heart, abdomen, or
pelvic/root area. This rapid breathing method is for focusing on and
clearing out stubborn karmic obstructions lodged in particular areas
of our spiritual anatomy, as needed.
17. Crown to root bastrika, This is also rapid breathing in the
spinal nerve, going between the crown flower cup and root. It is best
undertaken only after extensive purification of the nervous system
has been achieved through third eye to root spinal breathing, deep
meditation, and other methods that cleanse the nervous system of
karmic obstructions in a smooth and progressive manner. Premature
opening of the crown can lead to much difficulty, discomfort, and
distraction on the path, so this advanced practice is best undertaken
only when tests of stability have been successfully conducted at the
18. Loving service to others a conscious practice, and a natural result
of the increasing outward flow of divine love resulting from the
purification and opening of the nervous system produced by advanced yoga practices.
This is our natural state of being an endless overflowing of
ecstatic bliss and divine love. Nothing on this earth, or beyond, is
more real or more powerful than this great truth that is inherent in
every one of us. The reality of divine love is the ultimate truth in
us. As we become advanced in yoga, this becomes crystal clear. For
some it is known right from the very first sitting in deep
This lesson has been to summarize all that we have covered so far,
including the fundamental principles of human spiritual
transformation, the natural abilities we have within us that bring
about our transformation, and the key advanced yoga practices that
stimulate our natural abilities into action.
With a twice-daily routine of practices, we place ourselves on
a “fast track” to enlightenment. It is potentially so fast that it is
essential that we develop skill in regulating the practices we are
doing each day, measuring each practice by the clock. We adjust
practice times as necessary to maintain smooth and steady progress
without incurring excessive discomfort due to too many obstructions
being released in our nervous system.
This regulation of practices is called “self-pacing,” and it too is a
practice one of the most important practices. For, without good
self-pacing, we are not likely to get very far on the road to
Another aspect of advanced yoga practices is the prudent handing of
experiences, whether they are mundane or extreme. This is a path of
enjoyment, and we are entitled to enjoy the “scenery” we encounter on
our journey to enlightenment. However, the scenery is not what will
advance us on our path, It is our practices that will move us ahead.
So, after an admiring look at the passing scenery, no matter how
beautiful or attention-grabbing it may be, we easily go back to the
practice we are doing. If spiritual experiences come while we are in
our daily activities, as they certainly shall, we then can continue
to enjoy the experiences, or go back to whatever it is we are doing.
We always have a choice. Spiritual life is not something that must be
hijacking us from ordinary life. If it is, we have probably engaged
in some kind of excess in the past, and a stable routine of practices
can correct this. Spiritual life is something that can be cultivated
to fulfill our daily activities in everyday life, whatever they may
be. We are free to live our rising spiritual experiences in a way
that is compatible with our needs. It is our life, our journey, and
our enlightenment. We have no one to become but our Self.
The guru is in you.
