ACTIVITIES TO BE PERFORMED DURING A PARTICULAR SWARA;-

2- The right side of the body (including the right nostril) is controlled by the left hemisphere and vice versa.
3- Solar energy means all male planets like Sun, Mars, and Saturn while Lunar energy means all female planets like Moon, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter. Hence every Sunday, Tuesday and Saturday the right nostril works with the ruling planet of the day for one hour; half an hour before sunrise it changes and the nostril of the day takes over.
4- All activities that require physical strength (vitality) need Solar energy and hence come under right nostril activities while all activities that require emotional strength are left nostril activities.
5- The dominance of right nostril during the night and the left during the day makes one healthy, wealthy and happy and is conducive to longevity. So one can sleep to the left so that right nostril flows during the night.
6- One nostril should not work for more than 2 hours unless you are practicing swara yoga for a specific purpose.

2-Perhaps one need not even try to change the swara, for it will happen naturally. These things are included in the list for two reasons. First one to give the reader a taste of the original concept as one would find it in the ancient texts. Secondly, because it might interest a few academically.
ACTIVITIES ... WHEN SUSHUMNA NADI IS ACTIVE;-
1-Third Swara "Sushumna"is Located at the Center of the spinal cord.
2-It represents "Shiva" (pure consciousness) in the state of "So-Ham".
3-Sushumna is said to be active when Left & right swara flows together.
4-No worldly action are recommended, because work gives no result.It indicates non attachment to the mundane things
5-While third Swara is active Meditation is recommended according to Rhythms of Swara.
7-Sushumna or the shoonya swara is active, it is better to
do work which requires minimum exertion or attention.
'Shoonya' indicates the state of mind aroused when
sushumna is stimulated. The mind becomes less involved
with the physical world.
8-The shoonya swara is even referred to as the'evil'
or 'wicked' swara or nadi because, if you have
any intentions or expectations of material profit and
success,your hopes can be ruined at that time. If death is
due, then surely it will occur when this swara is predominant for a long time.
9-As far as the yogic texts are concerned, there are only
two types of fruitful action which should be done during
the shoonya swara; one is yoga abhyasa, or yogic
practices, and the other is some type of fearsome or evil
action which requires a completely steady and one-.
pointed mind .Therefore, the Shiva Swarodaya advises
that actions which lead to attainment of moksha should be done at that time.
10-The text states in unequivocal terms that it is
foolishness to undertake physical action or mental work
when the shoonya breath is flowing. However, if you sit for meditation, you will not have any difficulty at all.
MYSTERY OF SUSHUMNA NADI & KUNDALINI SHAKTI;-
1-Kundalini Shakti awakens and rise up Susumna, energizing the seven chakras. From Muladhara chakra, Ida and Pingala alternate at each chakra until they reach Ajna chakra where they meet again with Sushumna. In Ajna chakra, the meeting of the three main nadis is called Mukta Triveni (Mukta : “liberated”).
2-Continuing beyond Ajna chakra, Ida and Pingala end in the left and right nostrils respectively.Once the Kundalini Shakti has ascended through Sushumna to Sahasrara, the highest psychic center at the crown of the head, it reverses its course and returns to rest in the base center again.
3-Susumna Nadi generally remains dormant when the other Nadis flow strongly and is activated only when the breath comes through both nostrils simultaneously. It operates automatically at dawn and dusk, calming the system and facilitating meditation.
4-It is said that when Susumna becomes active, the yogi becomes invisible to the world. It is then that the yogi’s real work begins.
SUSHUMNA NADI for NON- DUALITY;-
1-Every body in Universe standing at the window of Duality, looking at Duality, while being influenced in all aspects of Life by DUALITY, we talk about NON- DUALITY. This is our Pitiable Situation & Condition of Individual One"
2-The Divine Theory of Advaita (non duality) were introduced by Bhagvad Shankracharya ( 1350 years ago). He manifest the Goal of Advata (non duality) & obligated the human race for the welfare of living & non living.The revered Bhagawan Shankracharya included all paths & practices in the Divine Path of Non- Duality.
3-He offered "Suandaraya Lahiri " to World & also gave formal acceptance to Tantrik Spiritual Practices. The final goal of His Life was Non- Duality. To attain that Goal a person must follow some Spiritual Path or another, purify his Chitta (psyche, mind stuff), and be worthy of non- duality.
4-His non -duality was not opposed to any spiritual practice, rather it was the foundation of all Spiritual Path of Universe."
5-It was an Divine Ocean in which all kinds of waves would rise, and into which rivers would flow from all directions. It was like an Infinite Sky where innumerable small & big stars would spread their own Light.
6-We want to jump straight to the non- duality state, ignoring the Spiritual Paths of Bhakti (devotion), Yoga & karma (actions). We also Ignore detached Karma, which weakens Prarabdha (destiny created by past Karma) & prepares the foundation for the experience of Non - Duality."
7- In general, people ridicule Devotion, which fills the heart, mind & chitta & give rise to an ordent desire for non- duality.
They believe that Yoga that brings control over mind & chitta, purifies the power of discretion(judgement) and makes one worthy of grasping the Vedanta (True & Pure Knowledge) is superfluous(unnecessary) .
8-Even when fully besieged/Captured by Maya (the grand Illusion, In modern Life it is Materialism), we say that Maya is False.It is True that , in principle, Maya is not Real, but its Falsehood must be experienced . As long as one is influenced by the ILLUSORY WORLD it is a Grand Mistake to call the World an Illusion.
9-We forget that comparative analysis itself involves Duality Comparison is Only possible between Two, and hence Non - Duality can never be proven with comparative Analysis .
10-So Ida-Pingla channels involve Duality..the ILLUSORY WORLD while Susumna Nadi is the paragon of Non - Duality..
