More on Bhuta Shuddhi
The goal of yoga is to make the mind crystal clear so that we can see what lies beyond it. Bhuta shuddhi, the kundalini practice presented here, is a significant step toward attaining that clarity. This practice purifies the basic elements of the body — earth, water, air, fire, and ether — and their corresponding chakras — the muladhara, svadhishthana, manipura, anahata and vishuddha. It involves visualization, pranayama and repetition of a specific mantra. The accompanying CD and booklet take you through the practice step-by-step. A beautiful color poster of the seven chakras aids the visualization exercises.
Benefits of bhuta shuddhi:
The practice is designed for those who have an understanding of yoga philosophy, yoga postures and breathing techniques and who have established a meditation practice. It should not be undertaken by those with heart disease, high blood pressure or nervous disorders.
