White Tantric Yoga is an integral part of Kundalini Yoga. It’s held in Los Angeles twice a year. The course is facilitated all over the world. When I participated in White Tantric Yoga in France some of the languages it was simultaneously being translated into included French, Spanish, Hebrew and German. We sit in pairs as part of a group meditation. We wear white to enhance our magnetic field and aura and we keep our crown chakra covered. The crown chakra (7th) is our connection to the highest self; our relationship with the unknown. It’s key characteristic is surrender, that humility that enables you to literally bow before the infinite. We have a kriya with a mental focus or mantra. The postures are held from eleven minutes to twenty two, thirty one and up to sixty two minutes. The idea is to break through our subconscious blocks. Yogi Bhajan, master of Kundalini Yoga and Mahan Tantric Master, said we must disipline ourselves. Our souls are shrouded in personal karmas. We can stay shrouded or if it is our karma, some souls will be brought to a technology; an opportunity to stay for the teachings or to keep running away, usually from one addiction to another. Some people will experience “Shakti Pad”. Shakti Pad is when someone is at the place where they decide to stay on the spiritual path or quit altogether. They will trick themselves into believing the spiritual practice doesn’t resonate for them any longer. It’s the ego’s way of going back to the old comfort zone. Mere words can’t describe the experience of Kundalini Yoga and White Tantric. It has to be felt.
Each posture will affect everyone differently. Some postures are easy for some and more challenging than others. Because of an injury that hasn’t healed yet I had some additional difficulties but I never gave up.
Yogi Bhajan, master of White Tantric said “Since ancient times humans have found that they have zillions of thoughts, billions of feelings, millions of emotions, thousands of desires, hundreds of fantasies, multirealities and personalities. Ultimately, our mind and thoughts rule us and bog us down. We try every method available to get rid of this pressure because it is eating us up inside. In the shortest time, you can experience release from a lot of the burden and extra weight that you carry in your head. As you see and act on each moment with clarity, you will gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your life will change. Your mind, body and soul will act together as one. This is the path to personal freedom and awareness, and will bring more success to every area of your life”.
