As a result of this fusion, creation happens, which is represented by visarga ( :)With the addition of visarga (ḥ :) at the end of सौ (sau) becomes सौः (sauḥ).This is the throb or pulsation of the Divine towards creation, causing the emission( release )of His three energies contained in AU.

5-WHAT ARE THE QUALLITIES OF SIX CHAKRAS?
There are 114 chakras in the body. There are many more, these are the major ones. You can see them as 114 junction boxes or confluence of nadis. These junctions are always in the form of triangles. Because it embodies movement from one dimension to another, it is referred to as a “chakra,” which means “wheel” or “circle,” but it is actually a triangle.
1]-Out of these 114, two are outside the physical body. Of the remaining 112, only 108 can actually be worked upon, the remaining four just flower as a consequence.If your energies are dominant in Muladhara, then food and sleep will be the most dominant factors in your life.
2]-Chakras have more than one dimension to them. One dimension is their physical existence, but they also have a spiritual dimension. This means that they can be completely transformed.
3]-The second chakra is Swadhisthana. If your energies are dominant in Swadhisthana, pleasures will be most dominant in your life – you seek pleasures, you enjoy the physical reality in so many ways.
4]-If your energies are dominant in Manipuraka, you are a doer; you can do many things in the world.
5]-If your energies are dominant in Anahata, you are a very creative person.
6]-If your energies are dominant in Vishuddhi, you become very powerful.
7]-If your energies are dominant in agna or if you attain to Ajna, then intellectually, you are realized. Intellectual realization gives you peace. Experientially it has not happened yet but intellectual realization has come to you, which brings you to a certain state of peace and stability within yourself irrespective of what is happening outside of you.
8]-Once your energies hit Sahasrara, simply like crazy you are ecstatic. There is no external stimulant, there is simply no reason, but you are ecstatic simply because energies have touched a certain peak.
6-WHAT IS THE MEANING OF SADHANA CHATSHTAYA / SHATSAMPATI (Four Means and Six Virtues)?-
FOUR means of practice include Six Virtues (Shatsampat), are cultivated on the path of Self-Realization by the school of Vedanta or Jnana Yoga. These allow a clear, steady foundation for the three stages of the practices of listening to the teachings (Sravana), reflecting on those teachings (manana), and deep contemplative meditation on those principles (Niddhidhyasana)
1. Discrimination (viveka): The first of the four means is that of discrimination. It is the gradual unfolding of the ability to explore and discern the difference between the real and the unreal (sat and asat), the permanent and the temporary (nitya and anitya), self and not-self (atman and anatman). Discrimination (viveka) is a foundation principle of the Yoga Sutras..
2. Non-attachment (vairagya): As a natural byproduct of discrimination, there is an decrease in attraction to the objects of the world and the inner desires for those worldly fruits. It is a process of gently reducing the coloring of attractions and aversions in the inner field of mind. This dispassion does not mean abandoning ones responsibilities to other people or to fulfilling of ones duties to society at large. One who has successfully cultivated non-attachment is actually more effective in the world, as well as more prepared for the subtleties of seeking Truth. Non-attachment is also a major foundation of Yoga. ......................................................................................
3. Six virtues (shat sampat):-
Six virtues, areas of mental training, and attitudes are cultivated so as to stabilize the mind and emotions, allowing the deep practice of contemplative meditation to be performed..VIZ,
1) Tranquility (Shama): Intentional cultivating an inner attitude of tranquility, peace of mind, or contentment is a foundation on which the other practices can rest.
2) Training (Dama): Training of the senses (indriyas) means the responsible use of the senses in positive, useful directions, both in our actions in the world and the nature of inner thoughts we cultivate.
3) Withdrawal (Uparati): With a proper inner attitude of tranquility, and the training of the senses, there also comes a sense of satiety, or natural sense of completeness, as if no more of the sensory experience need be sought.
4) Forbearance (Titiksha): Forbearance and tolerance of external situations allow one to be free from the onslaught of the sensory stimuli and pressures from others to participate in actions, speech, or thoughts that one knows to be going in a not-useful direction.It is the power of endurance that An aspirant should patiently bear the pairs of opposites such as heat and cold, pleasure and pain, etc.
5) Faith (Shraddha): An intense sense of certainty about the direction one is going keeps one going in the right direction, persisting in following the teachings and practices that have been examined and seen to be productive, useful, and fruit bearing.
6) Focus (Samadhana): Resolute focus towards harmonizing and balancing of mind, its thoughts, and emotions, along with the other virtues, brings a freedom to pursue the depth of inner exploration and realization.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. Longing (Mumukshutva): An intense, passionate, longing or desire for enlightenment and liberation from the levels of suffering that comes from the repeated cycles of suffering and delusion. It is a longing that is so strong that it gradually swallows up all of the other, smaller desires.
7-WHAT ARE THE THREE STAGES OF PRACTICE?-
Built on an increasingly solid foundation from these Four Means and Six Virtues, one is ever more able to follow the three stage practices of:
1- listening to the teachings (Sravana)
2-Reflecting on those teachings (manana)
3-Deep contemplative meditation on those principles (Niddhidhyasana).
For contemplative meditation, one might deeply absorb and merge with the wisdom of the great contemplations or mahavakyas of VEDAS, or reflect and meditate on the deepest meanings of the OM Mantra.
8-WHY JAPMALA IS OF 108 BEADS?-
The number 108 has manifested in the human system because it is a significant number in the making of the solar system. The diameter of the sun and the distance between the earth and the sun is 108 times. The diameter of the moon and the distance between the earth and the moon is 108 times.
The diameter of the earth and the diameter of the sun is 108 times. And hence, 108 is significant in various spiritual practices.an auspicious number in Hinduism and the number of countable beads on a Japa Mala or rosary for repetition of Mantras)
9-WHAT IS PRASTHANTRAYI?--
1-Prasthana trayi literally means " three points of departure." and they collectively refer to the Upanishads , the Bhagawad Gita and the Brahma Sutra. . These three texts are considered as authentic texts in Hindu philosophy.
2-The Prasthanatrayi consist of;--.
2-1-The Upanishads (sruti prasthana)
2-2. The Bhagavad Gita (sadhana or smriti prasthana)
2-3. The Brahma Sutra (nyaya prasthana)
3-The Upanishads are considered as shruti prasthana meaning that which is heard. The Upanishads were in the form of dialogues between the guru and shishya ( teacher and student ) and whatever was taught was heard by the student . so called shruti prasthana.
4-The Gita is called a smriti prasthana meaning that which was remembered . . It is a dialogue between Lord Krishna and Arjuna in the battle field of Kurujshetra ,. The Gita is a part of the Mahabharata which was composed by sage Veda Vyasa.
5-The third is the Brahma sutra which was called a nyaya prasthana - a logical text which set forth to explain logically all the doctrines taught in the Upanishad and the Gita.. Badraya is believed to have composed the Brahma Sutra. .
6-All these texts describe the nature of the Self, the goal of Self realization, and the means to attain this goal. Our scriptures accept these texts as pramanas meaning an instrument of knowledge. Sastras accept four pramanas- pratyaksha- direct perception, inference- anumana, upama- comparison and agama- tradition.
7-So sastras accept these three texts as instruments of knowledge.The Gita deals with important concepts such as Ishwara, / Brahman, jiva- living being or individual soul, prakriti- nature, dharma - duty in accordance with the Divine law and kaala- time...
