These practices are deeply rooted in the ancient Siddha tradition.
Here are some key aspects of Siddha Practices
1. Yoga and Meditation
Siddha practitioners emphasize the practice of yoga and meditation as essential tools for self-realization and spiritual growth. These practices involve physical postures (asanas), breath control (pranayama), and meditation techniques to purify the mind, awaken spiritual energies, and attain inner stillness.
2. Rasayana (Alchemy)
Siddha alchemy, also known as Rasayana, involves the preparation of medicinal formulations using metals, minerals, and herbs. These formulations have rejuvenating and therapeutic effects on the body and mind. They promote health, longevity and spiritual transformation.
3. Pranayama and Kundalini Awakening
Siddha practitioners engage in various pranayama techniques to control and channel the life force (prana) within the body. Additionally, their aim is to awaken the dormant spiritual energy known as Kundalini. This energy lies at the base of the spine. With the correct practice this energy flows upwards along the spine or to specific areas of the body.
4. Mantra Chanting
Chanting of sacred mantras is a common practice among Siddhas. Mantras are powerful sound vibrations that have transformative effects on the practitioner’s consciousness and can lead to higher states of awareness.
5. Internal Alchemy
Siddha practitioners engage in internal alchemy, wherein they seek to purify and transmute the physical body and mind to achieve spiritual awakening and self-realization.
