Kayakalpa yoga is wonderful technique of the SIDDHAS of South India and has a threefold objective.
a. Withstanding the aging process.
b. Maintaining youthfulness and physical health.
c. Postponing death until one reaches spiritual perfection.
Ever since man started getting illness, he began to discover the causes for
illness. The prevention of illness thus came to be added in the evolution of
culture. Even while he was enjoying pleasures and suffering from pains through
his five senses, he began to understand the perfect functional order of Nature
i.e. the principle of cause and effect through his sixth sense.
In his efforts to cure and prevent illness he further thought of avoidance or
postponement of death. By continuous search and research for generations, men
found several methods, of rejuvenation his physical body with foods, medicines,
herbs, and exercises and austerities. Each method showed a certain effect and
some systems are still being practiced in some parts of the world. Yet a perfect
system has not been evolved to suit all sections of people of all countries,
climates and ecological conditions.
So, centuries before Christ, Lord Buddha renounced his crown in search of the
root cause of sufferings and questioned the scholars of the day about the
reasons for diseases, old age and death. Intellectuals of the day could not
answer these questions. These remained unanswered for hundreds of years, but the
urge and the search was on.
Success came though some alchemists of South India, called "Siddhas" between
theirs tenth and fifteenth centuries. They actually lived as long as they wished
and after death their bodies were impervious to decay and disintegration. Twenty
of them actually demonstrated their longevity to the people and showed that
their bodies did not decay after death. Their findings were however,
deliberately kept hidden in obscures language, in so many bits and pieces in
their writings, in the form of Tamil poems. Although these poems are
descriptively simple, even great scholars have been unable to decipher the real
YOGIRAJ VETHATHIRI MAHARISHI had occasions to go through the literature of the
Siddhas, even at his teenage, in the course of his study, he learned of several
herbs and medicines to cure diseases. Interspersed in the 'Siddhas' teachings
were indications about the process of kayakalpa. However they were in puzzles
to which there seemed to be no key.
Meanwhile, he studied medicine and got diplomas in Ayurveda, Siddha and
Homeopathy. To the limited extent he could understand the meaning of the Siddha
scriptures, he began practicing exercises for rejuvenation, general health and
Many years later after Maharishi had attained self-realization through Kundalini
Yoga, he happened to study the same Siddha texts. What a wonder! Everything was
now clear about KayaKalpa with its science and practical exercises. Initially
he taught these exercises to some close friends and found that they got immense
Now he is teaching this wonderful process to thousands of people every year both
in India and abroad. The practitioners have obtained immense benefits not only
to physical strength and vitality, but also in terms of cure for some
Further more Kayakalpa gives significant spiritual benefit. The sexual energy
is transmuted into spiritual energy, by directing it to the "Crown Chakras". The
enlightenment of Consciousness, which is the purpose of birth, is gradually
achieved. The temperamental moods developed in man's personality will be
naturally sublimated into spiritual awareness and morality for the welfare and
happiness of all.
Practice of KayaKalpa yoga involves two main exercises.
1.Toning up of the nervous system to withstand the aging process and
2."OJAS breath" -- to recycle the sexual vital fluid to rejuvenate the body and
postpone death. The two exercises are very simple to learn and practice. These
hardly take five minutes in the morning and the evening.
The Course is taught in one session of three hours, in the first part the
science of body chemistry and its functions are explained in detail, in the
second part the practical exercises are personally taught so that the student
becomes well acquainted with their sequential order and duration. As this
practice is a restructuring process of the body in a natural way to medicines or
herbs are involved. Significant results will soon be notified if moderation in
food, work, rest, sex and use of thought force is observed.
Any person after physical maturity is eligible to learn and practice KayaKalpa
without previous experience in meditation or spiritual practices. Also this may
be done in conjunction with any other spiritual practices or physical exercises.
Maharishi will personally teach this to anyone who takes a pledge not to teach
to any other person without prior permission from him.
