Shambavi Mahamudra, locks your energies, and divert them in a completely different direction - turn it around in a way that instead of a loss, there is a gain. There is also medical evidence of the benefits. The cortisol awakening response, and brain derived neurotropic factors show significant increase. The inflammatory markers greatly improve; and after 90 days of practice the DNA shows that you are 6.4 years younger!

What is Brahmcharya?

In this profound article, Sadhguru tells us what Brahmcharya really is. He says, Brahmcharya means to simply be life, to live the way you were born - alone. If you do not do anything - you are a Brahmchari. You do certain sadhana, so that you do not give in to the tendencies of the earth, the material that you have picked up - otherwise your life will become cyclical. These tendencies are not natural to you - it is like the tendencies of a vehicle you have gotten into, like the tendencies of your car. One takes on the path of Brahmcharya, to break this cyclical motion of life.
