A detailed tutorial with profuse diagrams showing what actions to take in the subtle body to investigate the senses faculties. The meditator must first establish the location and function of the observing self. That self must be screened from the thoughts and ideas which usually hypnotize it. In the first and second chapters that screening ability is developed with applications to the smelling and tasting senses.
Initially, devaPriya Yogini meditated to discover the sense orbs in the subtle body. Her notes and diagrams were studied by Michael Beloved who used her manuscript in completing the practice. This is the result of their endeavor. This book was to be titled Sense Orbs but we realized that it is hardly likely that a meditator would develop the abstract objectivity to see the orbs. Instead there would be direct comprehension of the sense faculties.
Feel assured that by reading this book, you will develop a deeper state of consciousness during your meditations. Each technique herein was practiced by one or both of the authors. This is recent and relevant. It complies with Patanjali’s requirements in the Yoga Sutras for samyama on the subtle sense organs.
About the Author
Michael Beloved (Yogi Madhvacharya) introduced the inSelf Yoga kundalini and meditation procedure. He first charted the basic mind diagrams and published them in the book Meditation Pictorial. This is for mastery of the 5th stage of yoga, pratyahara sensual energy withdrawal, for concentration of soul power and shift of focus to transcendental planes of existence. Michael designed, used, and tested these methods on the basis of meditation instructions received from several yoga teachers and from the information in the Bhagavad Gita, Uddhava Gita, and Anu Gita and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. devaPriya Yogini (Erinn Earth) is a Yoga Educator. Yoga is an ancient science of introspection, psychological purification and ultimate, effortless togetherness with the Supreme Person through meditation. After graduating from Quincy University in 1996 with a degree in Psychology, devaPriya discovered Yoga as the greatest of humanities psychological studies. Practicing the 8 steps of yoga shed a bright light on the nature of existence and inspired a deeper understanding of reincarnation. Yoga teaching began in 2000 after formal training at the Sivananda Ashram in the Laurentian Mountains of Quebec. Here, she lived in a tent and studied with monks, engaged in yoga austerities. In 2013 she began training with inSelf Yoga master, Michael Beloved in breath infusion for subtle body transformation, a form of kundalini hatha yoga."
