From the point of view of yoga, today we celebrate the birth of Bhagwan Hanuman ji and look at the greatest soul who through the power of his Bhakti became the next Brahma in line in the next cosmic creation. If we look for the greatest master of Bhakti yoga, we will realise that there are more than one interpretations available for Hanuman ji.
As “Hanuman,” he is the one without any doubt (anuman) as to the existence of Ram (God).
As Anjaniputra, he is the one who comes accidentally into this world, but by his efforts ascends to the greater heights of spiritual evolution.
As Vayuputra he is the breath body in us and can help the lower self (Sita) that is lost to ignorance to reunite with its true companion, the inner soul (Ram). As Veeranjaneya, he is the source of courage and confidence for many a timid heart.
As Bajarangbali, he is strong in both devotion and physical strength. He is an ocean of virtues and friend of the pure hearted. He loves the ascetic qualities in man because only those who are detached and mentally free from the luxuries of life and desires of their bodies can truly concentrate on the divine and attain Him.
In the macrocosm Ram represents the Supreme Self and Hanuman as his devotee, the individual Self. Within in the microcosm of the embodied Self (jiva), Ram represents the embodied Self, who is caught in the cycle of births and deaths (Samsara). Sita represents the physical Self or mind and the body complex (Kshetra). Ravana with his ten heads represents the ego with ten senses which have fallen into evil ways. Hanuman ji represents, the breath. When ego and the senses carry away the mind and body and put them to wrong use, with the help of breath the embodied soul restrains the senses, silences the ego, regains the control of the mind and body and stabilises them in the contemplation of God.
Here are 2 important mantras for Bhagwan hanuman ji
To understand the importance of yoga we must also learn about the Story of Kaliyug. But let’s begin our journey on understanding what are the main components of a Yogis Dharma. It’s sometimes represented symbolically as a bull having Four legs. The reason to chose the bull is it’s nature if never giving giving up and always working, along with the association with Bhagwan shiv ji, hence it’s Dharma has been personified as a Bull. Each leg represents one unique feature for Dharma to Strive.
1) Tapasya = Austerity
2) Shauch = Purity
3) Daya = Kindness
4) Satya = Truth
तपः शौचं दया सत्यं इति पादाः कृते कृताः |
अधर्मांशैस्त्रयो भग्नाः स्मयसङ्गमदैस्तव ||
During Satya Yuga, the bull of Dharma stands on all its four legs. As time passes and the Yugas change, one by one the legs are weakened and lost.
As we enter Treta Yuga, tapasya vanishes, this means that darkness has entered 25% of this world.
In Dwapara Yuga, Shauch is lost. This also means the world is now left with only half the population which is embodied in higher pursuits and remains pure at heart.
And in Kali Yuga, Dharma is left crippled only on one leg, and by the end of the yoga in ghor kaliyug even satya is lost. This also means that the majority of the world that is 75% lives in their ego and seeks sensual pleasure rather than devote life to higher purposes.
We are now in kaliyug, it is an age where every step we take can either be towards god or towards our own demise. We must chose our steps carefully and force ourself to create habits which brings us closer to the supreme shiv consciousness.
Due to the powerful influence of Kali Yuga, truth will steadily get eroded as the dark age progresses. As long as you are alive, learn to bring back the virtues which are the flag bearers of dharma, walk the path of truth, for it is said that the beauty of shiva is experienced only through truth “Satyam-Shivam-Sundaram”
Lasting for 432,000 years (1,200 divine years), Kali Yuga began 5,124 years ago and has 426,876 years left as of 2023 CE. Kali Yuga will end in the year 428,899 CE.
Now if we were to accept kaliyug is supposed to be having a life of 100 years, it means each 1 year of kaliyug is equal to 4,320 years human years, meaning as of today kaliyug is roughly about 1 year and 2 months (approximately).
This means kaliyug is only like an unaware child whose just entered this world. Now imagine the situation if the world today, take a moment to measure the extent of all the ongoing problems, combine each and everyone of them, this is what an unaware child who is just born is doing.
Now if this is the chaotic madness it can cause in its unaware state, what will happen when it becomes aware, what will happen when it enters its teen, what will happen when it becomes young and strong and what will happen when it’s old and doesn’t want to let go of it’s life.
Here are some shocking predictions about Kaliyug:
In Kali Yuga, wealth alone will be considered the sign of a man’s good birth, proper behaviour and fine qualities. And law and justice will be applied only on the basis of one’s power.
Men and women will live together merely because of superficial attraction, and success in business will depend on deceit. Womanliness and manliness will be judged according to one’s expertise in sex, and a man will be known as a brahmana just by his wearing a thread.
As the earth thus becomes crowded with a corrupt population, whoever among any of the social classes shows himself to be the strongest will gain political power.
The citizens will suffer greatly from cold, wind, heat, rain and snow. They will be further tormented by quarrels, hunger, thirst, disease and severe anxiety.
Men will no longer protect their elderly parents.
Cities will be dominated by thieves, the Vedas will be contaminated by speculative interpretations of atheists, political leaders will virtually consume the citizens, and the so-called priests and intellectuals will be devotees of their bellies and genitals.
Servants will abandon a master who has lost his wealth, even if that master is a saintly person of exemplary character. Masters will abandon an incapacitated servant, even if that servant has been in the family for generations.
In Kali-yuga men will develop hatred for each other even over a few coins. Giving up all friendly relations, they will be ready to lose their own lives and kill even their own relatives.
Uncultured men will accept charity on behalf of the Lord and will earn their livelihood by making a show of austerity and wearing a mendicant’s dress. Those who know nothing about religion will mount a high seat and presume to speak on religious principles.
The maximum duration of life for human beings in Kali Yuga will become 50 years.
Religion, truthfulness, cleanliness, tolerance, mercy, duration of life, physical strength and memory will all diminish day by day because of the powerful influence of the age of Kali.
This is why I keep on insisting, chanta the maha mantra OM NAMAH SHIVAY, spend time in seeking wisdom, do yoga asanas, meditate, self reflect, focus on your yogic sadhana, seek moksh and get out of here. The times are dark, it’s impact in you is dark, doing things isn’t easy and getting out isn’t easy, but it’s not impossible either.
Through your sheer willpower, having faith in the suspense shiv consciousness, break the chains of the maya and enter the light, it might seem tough, but ask yourself, what’s tougher, to remain here and go through endless suffering or to put some efforts and achieve moksh.
Important: some dos and donts for lunar eclipse (To my students I will send you more detailed personalized ritual details)
Dos and Don’ts for Lunar Eclipse: Following the Ancient Rituals and Purifying the Self
During a lunar or solar eclipse, certain regions of the world are affected, and to honor this event, we must follow the prescribed rituals as laid out in the scriptures. Our esteemed gurus advocate for embracing the sanctity of the occasion and abiding by the following practices:
The Shikshãpatri, a revered text, commands us to stop all activities at the time of the eclipse and chant the name of God in a purified state. After the eclipse, householders must bathe with their clothes on and then donate according to their means. The Purãnas tells the story of how the eclipse came into existence, narrating how during the churning of the ocean by the gods and demons, the nectar of immortality was produced, and a demon named Rãhu, disguising himself as a god, drank it. Thus, when God beheaded Rãhu, he became a planet, and during certain times of the year, he holds the sun and moon by his mouth (Grahan), causing solar and lunar eclipses.
The rules to follow before, during, and after an eclipse are as follows: Before the eclipse, one must not eat for 12 hours before the solar eclipse begins and for 9 hours before the lunar eclipse begins. During this period, one must not offer meals to God, but one can perform arti, pray, and sing devotional songs. If the solar eclipse occurs before sunrise, one may see the eclipse only after the sun has risen, and in this case, one must not eat after sunset the previous night.
During the eclipse, one must sit in one place, chant the name of God, and sing devotional songs. One must also observe a waterless fast while the eclipse is in progress.
After the eclipse, one must bathe immediately with clothes on and preferably with cold water. The Satsangijivan recommends offering donations according to one’s income, as this expresses one’s joy at the release of the Sun and/or Moon god from Rãhu’s grasp. Sadhus rejoice by performing puja.
To remain pure during the eclipse, one must get rid of extra cooked food, and not touch anything such as clothes, food, personal items, etc. After the eclipse, one must not touch anyone, and if one has touched anything by mistake, it must be purified by washing or by sprinkling water over it.
It is crucial to take a bath after an eclipse as darkness during the eclipse symbolizes impurity. Once the eclipse is over, light returns to the earth, and to rejoice, one must cleanse the impurity that darkness brought, worship God, and offer donations to express happiness.
We must also remember that we are all engulfed by an eclipse in the form of mãy, and purifying ourselves on this occasion will enable us to transcend this illusory world and reach the ultimate goal of yoga. Let us embrace the sacredness of the lunar eclipse and follow these ancient rituals to purify ourselves and connect with the divine.

There are 108 human delusions or forms of ignorance, and 108 marmas in the subtle body. When reciting mantras on the mala, it is essential to remember the mantra with sincerity, devotion, feeling, and full attention.
In the practice of counting the number of repetitions of the mala, 100 beads are counted as completed, with the remaining 8 beads being offered to god and guru and used to cover errors or omissions.
Some say there are 108 feelings, with 36 related to the past, present, and future. The numbers 1, 0, and 8 have symbolic meanings, with 1 representing higher truth, 0 representing emptiness or completeness in spiritual practice, and 8 representing infinity or eternity.

om tryambakaṃ yajāmahe sugandhiṃ puṣṭivardhanam urvārukamiva bandhanānmṛtyor mukṣīya maamṛtāt
The Mahamrityunjaya Mantra is a powerful chant that is believed to have originated from Rigveda. It is considered to be one of the most potent mantras for healing and is chanted to invoke the blessings of Lord Shiva, the three-eyed Lord who sees everything, both visible and invisible. The mantra seeks the Lord’s protection from disease, death, and all forms of suffering. The mantra begins with the sacred syllable “Om,” which is a mystical symbol of the universe and the divine. The word “Tryambakam” refers to Lord Shiva, who is known as the three-eyed one. The next line, “Yajamahe,” is an expression of worship, adoration, and reverence.
“Sugandhim” means fragrant and is a reference to the Lord’s sweet-smelling nature. “Pushthivardhanam” refers to the Lord’s nourishing and life-giving qualities. The Lord is seen as a good gardener who takes care of all his creations, making them thrive and prosper.
The line “Urvārukamiva” compares the Lord’s protective powers to that of a cucumber, which is shielded by its strong vine. The Lord’s protection is believed to be as powerful as the vine that holds the cucumber. “Bandhanān” means bound down, and with “Mṛtyormukṣīya,” it means “liberate from the bounds of death.”
The last line, “Māmṛtāt,” can be interpreted in different ways. One interpretation is “Free me from death but not from immortality,” implying that the mantra seeks protection from death but not necessarily eternal life. Another interpretation is “Give me some life-rejuvenating nectar,” which implies that the mantra seeks the blessings of the Lord for a healthy and long life.
The origin of this secret mantra is steeped in mythology, with Rishi Markandeya being the only one in the world who knew it. Legend has it that the Moon was once in trouble and cursed by King Daksha. Rishi Markandeya gave the Mahamritryunjaya Mantra to Sati, Daksha’s daughter, for the Moon’s well-being. The mantra is also known as the Rudra mantra, symbolizing the furious aspect of Lord Shiva. The Tryambakam mantra alludes to Shiva’s three eyes and is sometimes called the Mrita-Sanjivini mantra, as it forms a part of the life-restoring practice given to the primordial sage Sukracharya.
The Mahamritryunjaya Mantra is a potent tool for seekers of yoga and spirituality. It has found its place in the Vedas and holds within it the essence of the divine. So let us invoke the blessings of the three-eyed Lord Shiva and elevate our consciousness to new heights.
The Mahamrityunjaya Mantra, a sacred and powerful invocation to Lord Shiva, is renowned for its benefits to mental, emotional, and physical health. This moksha mantra is believed to grant longevity and immortality, and to protect against untimely death. When chanted, the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra imbues the practitioner with energy and guidance from the divine, while reconnecting the consciousness to its true nature. This transformative practice is known as Japa, which involves the repetition of the mantra and leads to greater concentration and awareness.
The Mahamrityunjaya Mantra can be used in various ways, including during the smearing of Vibhuti over various parts of the body, as well as in Japa or Homa (havan) to manifest desired results. While the Gayatri Mantra serves to purify and guide spiritually, the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra provides healing, rejuvenation, and nurturance to the practitioner.
सिद्धार्थ – that’s how we write SIDDHARTHA in Hindi/Sanskrit through the Devanagari script. Following is how this powerful name came into existence.
Noun: सिद्धार्थ (siddhā-rtha)
“He who has fulfilled the object (of his coming)”
Name of the great Buddha from shakya clan (Siddhartha).
One of the names for Bhagwan Shiv among his sahastra naam
Adjective सिद्धार्थ (siddhā-rtha)
One who has accomplished an aim or object, successful, prosperous
Leading to the goal, efficient, efficacious
One whose aim or intention is known
” was the original name of Buddha and a name which is formed of two words “Sidh” whose meaning is “perfect” and “Artha” whose meaning is “purpose” both are from the language of Sanskrit and combined they mean “the one who perfects ( sidh ) his purpose ( artha )”.
“Sidh” whose meaning is that which “achieves” and that which is “perfect” then expands and becomes “Siddha” whose meaning is “perfected” and “supernatural” and this is then seen in “Siddhanta” whose meaning is “the end ( anta ) of perfection ( siddha )”.
“Sidh” also becomes “Siddhi” whose meaning is “perfection” “skill” and “art” and this is seen in the “Asta Siddhis” which are the “eight ( asta ) perfections ( siddhi )” yogis who can become “larger than a planet” and “smaller than an atom”.
“Siddha” whose meaning is “perfection” can be seen in this verse from the Gita where “Siddhaye” and “Siddhanam” are translated as “perfection” the Gita spoken over 5000 years ago, long before the appearance of Buddha and the language of Pali.
“Out of the many thousands among men, one may endeavour for perfection, and of those who have achieved perfection, hardly one knows Me in truth.” Gita 7.3
“Sidh” expresses that which “binds one ( si ) to the motion ( h ) of light ( d )” as in the “light of the soul” as in the “light of illumination” while its secondary meanings of “beatitude” and “perfection” are an expression of mystical and spiritual states.
As it journeys to other languages “Sidh” is seen throughout Europe as “Sidus” a word from Latin whose meanings are “star” “group of stars” and “constellation” and “Sidereal” whose meaning is “starry” “astral” and that which belongs to the “constellations”.
Around the early 17th century Gallileo wrote his “Sidereus Nuncius” whose meaning was the “message from the stars” a message which announced his “clusters ( si ) of light ( d )” all of which move around the satellites of Jupiter thus proving the rotation of planets around the stars.
“Sidh” expresses the nature of Sanskrit, which expresses the nature of the Vedas, which expresses the nature of the divine, and this can be seen in words such as “Consider” whose meaning is to “observe ( con ) the stars ( sidus )” and also “Desire” which means to “long for ( de ) the stars ( sidus )”.
These words from the Ancient language of Sanskrit go back in time over 5000 years, long before the 2500 year old date for Panini, long before the 3500 year old date for the stone tablets of Armana, long before the 4000 year old date for the disappearance of Sarasvati, and long before Buddhism and the language of Pali.
To truly understand the concept of the divine, we must understand the concept of time. Time is the ultimate manifestation of the divine, present in all things and driving nature itself. It both creates and destroys, and in the end, only time remains when all else fades away. The ancient sages knew that to Understand god they must understand the concept of time, which is why they named Shiva Mahakal and Shakti as Mahakali, the great gods, and goddesses of time. These divine entities are beyond our limited selves and hold the key to the fate of our soul’s journey. Even if you do not consider yourself religious or spiritual, it is crucial to respect time. For, in the end, only time is ever victorious, and it determines the course of our lives. Let us learn to appreciate the power of time and honor its place in our lives. By doing so, we can connect with the divine and find a greater purpose in our existence.
In Vedic thought there are four goals of human life, not just relative the physical personality but to the Atman within.
First is DHARMA, which relates to our purpose in this physical incarnation, what our karma dictates and what develops our buddhi or inner intelligence.
Second is ARTHA, which relates to the resources and achievements necessary to fulfill that.
Third is KAMA, or the enjoyment in our dharmic activities.
Fourth is MOKSHA, or our liberation from body, mind and karma into our inner being, through the fulfillment of our dharmic purpose.
This isn’t in the main but sometimes is considered as fifth – AROGYA, or wellness of body and mind as the necessary instruments and vehicles to promote our dharma.
For those without awareness of their inner purpose, these four goals get externalized in the form of career, wealth, pleasure in general and personal freedom, but these get us caught in further karma and don’t align us with the Atman within.
“Where to hide the divinity was the question” ask Gods. So Lord Shiva called a council of the gods to help him decide.
“Let’s bury it deep in the earth,” said the gods. But Shiva answered, “No, that will not do because humans will dig into the earth and find it.”
Then the gods said, “Let’s sink it in the deepest ocean.” But Shiva said, “No, not there, for they will learn to dive into the ocean and will find it.”
Then the gods said, “Let’s take it to the top of the highest mountain and hide it there.” But once again Shiva replied, “No, that will not do either, because they will eventually climb every mountain and once again take up their divinity.”
Then the gods gave up and said, “We do not know where to hide it, because it seems that there is no place on earth or in the sea that human beings will not eventually reach.”
Shiva thought for a long time and then said, “Here is what we will do. We will hide their divinity deep in the center of their own being, for humans will never think to look for it there.”
All the gods agreed that this was the perfect hiding place, and the deed was done. And since that time humans have been going up and down the earth, digging, diving, climbing, and exploring–searching for something already within themselves.

If you are really seeking to find the truth then Sivaom School of Yoga is what you need. For me it is a life changing point.
Learning yoga at the Sivaom School of Yoga was a journey of awakening and deep knowledge. Becoming a teacher is a great responsibility and one has to be very well prepared to manage with human body, mind and soul. Studying yoga at the Sivaom School of Yoga I was exposed to the original Vedic scriptures and was prepared by my GuruJi Siddthartha Shiv Khanna to be able to teach the Sivaom practice, developed by himself and that includes a union of the four main branches of Yoga (Raja, Karma, Jann and Bhakti). By practicing this combination of teachings we are enabled to bring ourselves in to balance and a perfect alignment between body, mind and soul.
The most authentic classes in Greece, is very important for the world to know that yoga its not just asan, I am very glad that the siva om school of yoga is out there spreading the real teachings! If you are looking for yoga classes or trainings thats the place you need.
Siddharth is a great teacher. Due to my constant back pain I had reached out to him to help me strengthen my back and get some movement. He guided me throughout the sessions and got me back to where I was able to go out for a walk and have confidence in myself that I could do things and have a normal life despite the constant back pain. Now I am mobile however it’s a work in progress and with Siddharth’s guidance I am sure we will get there.
I have attended a few other yoga classes but Siddhartha is the best yoga teacher....his way of teaching yoga not only gives you a healthy lifestyle changes your outlook on life making you a mentally stronger person ....SivaOm is a highly recommended place .
I had my first class at Sivaom school of yoga a few weeks before and it was a unique experience. What I loved most was the feeling coming close to myself, finding joy, connection and deep focus. Many teachers can teach you the physical alignment of yoga asanas but Siddharta spreads the teaching of enlightenment, showing others that the greatest kingdom one can have dominion over is the realm of the heart!
If you are looking for an authentic yoga experience or teacher training then I cannot recommend Sivaom school of yoga enough!! Siddhartha is a unique and extremely knowledgeable teacher, his classes offer a wealth of information, taught with humour and love with no question is left unanswered. I have done several trainings but none like Sivaoms teacher training. Highly, highly recommend, 5 stars are not enough🙏
Being the only yoga teacher from India in Greece it is a privilege for one to learn yoga from Siddhartha. Personally I have been to India and couldn't find the same quality of yoga class. Siddhartha eats, drinks and breathes yoga and takes his students' development and well-being very seriously. I highly recommend this school
