Soham Sadhana incorporates Sadhana techniques like Pranayama, Swaryog Tratak, Sakshibhav Pranav Sadhana, and Sudarshan Kriya.
It is basically the Rajyoga Diksha prescribed by the Nath sect. This Sadhana has a set pattern-Bhastrika.
Aumkar Uccharan Ujjayi Shavasan and then constant observation of the self without active participation. By watching the slow moving rhythm of the breathing process, the mind is
brought under control. Sham Sadhana is the art of experiencing the formless Gagan and imbibing its essence by making the Mana (mind) ride the chariot of Pavan.
This Dhyana technique
is most effective on the vaastu-dosha associated with north-east direction, which affects the souces of positive energy flow. The north-east directional deficiencies produce
detrimental effects matching in intensity to those originating from the Vaastu-dosha in the South-west direction.
As such Soham Sadhana, which derives its strength from all the Yoga disciplines is beneficial as a remedy against Vaastu-dosha in the north-east direction.
Soham Sadhana vanquishes the Doshas related to the four basic elements- Prithvi , Aap, Tej, and Vayu-by focusing sublime qualities of the element Gagan on the mind. Bhasrika removes
the bad habits like laziness and sleepiness in the Sadhak, facilitating Nadi-Shodhan (refining the Nadi). Pranav Ucchar awakens the senses in the deep confines of the inner Pran-kosha.
Ujjayi Shwasan creates a link between natural Soham reaction and the individual breathing process.
This in turn constructs a bridge to Pinda-Brahma, which is essential for smooth
passage of the Pran Shakti. Then, the dormant Mana (mind) can easily ascend to the Gagan. Since Soham Sadhana is a ritual suited for Rajyoga. It is smooth, easy, and safe.
In Maharashtra this Sadhana has been rejuvenated through the efforts of Shri Swarupananda,, Shri Madhavnath,and Shri Yoginitai.
This chapter discussed the relevance of different yogic practices for pacifying the mind and body subjected to ill effects brought about by flaws in qualities of Vaastu directions.
The benefits of the above yogic disciplines are manifold.
An individual not only acheives stability of mind and mental peace, his body and mind develop the strength to successfully counter the ill effects of direction related Vaastu-dosha.
Thus, he is blessed with a cosmic protective shield.
