Surya Yoga in English
Surya yog is an advance yoga technique for balancing one’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. Surya yog is not concerned with one’s religion deity or mode of worship. It belongs to the whole of humanity and cannot be tagged to any group, nation or economy.

We are all aware of the importance of sun in our life. Sun controls the seasons and the passage of day and night. It is the source of all life. The importance of sun was realised very early by the ancient civilizations.
Today the worship of sun has been redefined with a new spiritual system developed by a navi-mumbai based acharya jowel k. Gopinath popularly known as surya swami.

Surya sadhana is developed by surya swami. This course is fully scientific. Surya yog is a beautiful amalgamation of yoga, nada, rishi reki and silence (buddha) and can be performed in nine steps. This technique is conducted outdoors in the morning with the idea of invoking the sun’s energy through a series of exercises. This includes gazing naked eye at the sun, chanting, deep breathing and a few yogic postures.

(1) aalphaa sheetali or sheetali pranayama :- you have to fold the tongue , breathe in through the mouth slowly to the count of 4 seconds. Hold the breathe while doing hold the nostril with ring finger and thumb of right hand and bend the middle finger to touch the base of thumb. Index finger can be opened and kept at the area between the eyes brows. Breathe out through right nostril to the count of 4 seconds (slowly increase it to 8 seconds). Hold the breathe for a second and breathe in through rolled tongue and mouth. Breathe out through left nostril. This completes one pranayama. You have to do 21-22 pranayama to open both nostrils. This exercise not only opens up both nostrils and nadi, it also cools the body.

(2) aalphaa asan :-   (1) hands at the side, slowly raise over head, breathe in (inhale); when hands are at the top, looking up interlock the fingers, turns the palms facing the sky, hold the breathe. (2) slowly bring the hands to the right to a level above the horizon, looking at the fingers exhale 3,5,7,9. Bring the hands above the head, exhale pause for 7 seconds4, 6, 8. Repeat step 2 but move the hands to the back (9). Move the hands to the front towards the ground (10). Bring hands down slowly exhaling pause for few seconds. Repeat step 1-10 two more times.

(3) aalphaa or aura purification and unlock the energy :- rub the palms of your hands together briskly for about 15 to 30 seconds. This helps to actuate the overall sensitivity. Rub the palm of the right hand to the left and vice versa. Keep the right hand in alpha mudra. Unlock the energy by placing(keeping) the thumb in the middle of the left palm and rotate it anticlockwise as it opening a clock. Do the same with the left hand. Keep hands apart and move them to and fro till you feel the magnetic pull. Make a ball of energy. Slowly move the hands to and fro from the earth to draw magnetic energy from the earth. Move hand up and down from the sky to draw cosmic energy. Keeping the fingers curled and maintaining a distance between the hand take them to the back of the head as far as possible and remove all the imourities slowly from all parts of the body. Collect the impurities and give them to surya. Repeat the process twice more, once to remove the impurities from the glands and after wards from the chakra.

Then hands in position mentally chant “om shri sryanarayanay namah” minimum 10 times. Draw some more energy from the sun, hands in position chant the gayatri mantra minimum 12 timesloudly. Hands in alpha mudra position, look at the sun, inhale and exhale through the third eye. Stand in position and concentrate on surya for at least 2 minutes.
