SIDDHA SIDDHANTA PADDHATI PDF

It is based on his own transcendental experience and is a work which does not get into dialectics, logic, arguments in support of or against viewpoints. While, the credit for writing the Siddha Siddhanta Paddhati SSP is attributed to Guru Gorakhnath, however, like all ancient texts there are many views on who authored the text with some researchers propounding names of other nath yogis. There is a broad agreement that SSP was written by Guru Gorakhnath or at least presents his teachings. Guru Gorakhnath is believed to have lived and taught somewhere in 9 or 10th century AD and is known and revered as a mystical figure. He was a disciple of Guru Matsyendranath. There are several stories associated with his birth and the most popular local story attributes his birth to ashes given by Guru Matsyendranath to a childless woman who asked for his blessings to have a child.

The Buddha also used a posture where pressure is put on the perineum with the heel, similar to modern postures used to stimulate Kundalini. The aims of these practices were siddhis supranormal powers such as levitation and mukti liberation. The text also attacks Vajrayana Deity yoga as ineffective. This text does not mention the preservation of bindu, but merely says that liberation is achieved by controlling the mind through controlling the breath.

Instead this "democratization of yoga" led to the teaching of these techniques to all people, "without the need for priestly intermediaries, ritual paraphernalia or sectarian initiations. According to James Mallinson, this reliance on non-duality helped Hatha Yoga thrive in the medieval period as non-duality became the "dominant soteriological method in scholarly religious discourse in India".

It consists of shlokas verses in four chapters: [23] Chapter 1 with 67 verses deals with setting the proper environment for yoga, ethical duties of a yogi, and asanas postures Chapter 2 with 78 verses deals with the pranayama breathing exercises, control of vital energy within and the satkarmani body cleansing Chapter 3 with verses discusses the mudras and their benefits. Chapter 4 with verses deals with meditation and samadhi as a journey of personal spiritual growth. It is notable because fragments of this manuscript have also been found near Kuqa in Xinjiang China.

The text discusses khecarimudra, but calls it saranas. The text is also notable for dropping the nadanusandhana inner sound technique. It presents 6 cleansing methods, 84 asanas, 24 mudras and 8 kumbhakas. Many texts explicitly state that it is practice alone that leads to success.

Sectarian affiliation and philosophical inclination are of no importance. The texts of Hatha Yoga, with some exceptions, do not include teachings on metaphysics or sect-specific practices. It eliminated the need for "either ascetic renunciation or priestly intermediaries, ritual paraphernalia and sectarian initiations". Later in the 20th-century, states Mallinson, this disconnect of Hatha yoga from religious aspects and the democratic access of Hatha yoga enabled it to spread worldwide.

Negative impression for the Hatha yogis continued during the British colonial rule era. According to Mark Singleton , this historical negativity and colonial antipathy likely motivated Swami Vivekananda to make an emphatic distinction between "merely physical exercises of Hatha yoga" and the "higher spiritual path of Raja yoga". Yoga as exercise , of the type seen in the West, has been greatly influenced by the school of Tirumalai Krishnamacharya , who taught from until his death in The Hatha yoga texts state that a successful yogi has certain characteristics.

Section 1. It extends well beyond being a sophisticated physical exercise system and integrates ideas of ethics, diet, cleansing, pranayama breathing exercises , meditation and a system for spiritual development of the yogi. For example, sections 1. Eating, states the Gheranda Samhita , is a form of a devotional act to the temple of body, as if one is expressing affection for the gods. The text does not provide details or recipes. The text states, according to Mallinson, "food should be unctuous and sweet", one must not overeat and stop when still a bit hungry leave a quarter of the stomach empty , and whatever one eats should please Shiva.

Its texts vary in specifics and number of cleansing methods, ranging from simple hygiene practices to the peculiar exercises such as reversing seminal fluid flow. For example, Gheranda samhita in section 3. Its texts state that proper breathing exercises cleanses and balances the body.

Siddha Siddhanta Paddathi by Guru Gorakhnath : About the Book and Author

F O R E W O R D I have great pleasure in drawing the attention of the scholars and philosophers interested in the Yoga system of philosophy to this collection of 10 works of the school of the system known as that of the Natha Yogis or Kanphata Yogis, which the learned Dr. She has, by doing so, rendered a great service to the cause of Indian culture in its spiritual aspect because the Natha Yogis continue in an uncorrupted form the ancient Hathayoga tradition, whose origin goes back to the proto-historic times when there lived the great Siddhas of the Mahesvara sect like the great sage Panini, who have left behind for the benefit of civilised man, wonderful works on such scientific subjects as grammar, linguistics, mathematics, medicine, classical music etc. Gopinath Kaviraj had, in the first quarter of this century, published in the Prince of Wales Sarasvati Bhavan Text Series two works of that sect of secondary importance, namely Goraksa-siddhanta-samgraha and Siddha-siddhanta-samgraha. The former thereout is a 17th century work made out on the basis of extracts drawn from works and the latter is a summary of the Siddha-siddhanta-paddhati of Nityanath, who flourished long after Goraksanatha whose achievement in the matter of the revival of the Siddha tradition is comparable with that of Siddha Vasugupta in the matter of that of the Kashmir Shaivism and of the great philosopher Samkara in that of the Advaita Vedanta. But the learned editress of this collection has placed before the public the full text of that work based on a copy of a MS. The language of the text is ungrammatical at places.
