We got 4 new students : Prabin, Mukti, Bhagi Gautum and Dhanmaya, who joined our class today. Welcome to you all.

I. Here are the highlights of our class:

  • We had a quiz today, the grades are attached below
  • Good percentage of the class have done their home and the rest of the others promised to do it regularly this week.
  • We had a referesher on the old chakras and had learned two new chakras today:
    • Vishudha chakra  (Throat-Chakra)  : When it is open, negative experience is transformed into wisdom and learning. Meditation upon this chakra is said to bring about the following siddhis or occult powers; vision of the three periods, past, present and future; freedom for disease and the ability to move the 3 worlds. •
    • Anahata Chakra (Heart-Chakra): Anahata is considered the seat of the Jivatman, and Para Shakti. In the Upanishads, this is described as being like a tiny flame that resided inside the heart. Anahata is so called because it is in this place that sages hear that sound (Anahata – Shabda) which comes without the striking of any two things together.” .  It is associated with the element of air, the sense of touch, and with actions of the hands.    Meditation on this chakra is said to bring about the following siddhis, or occult powers; he becomes a lord of speech. His senses are completely under control;
  • We did meditation concentrating on the Vishudha chakra with omkar kirtan.
