Ghrit Neti – Medicated Cow Ghee in Nostrils

You can use 5ml of pure cow ghee into each nostril. This practice is called Ghrit Neti which helps us with – Stop White Hairs, Hair Fall Treat Migraine, tension headache Cure Trigeminal Neuralgia Treating Tinnitus, Hearing problems Treating Vision problems Cure Lack of Memory and concentration
It emphasizes that one continues to be called a living being till the time ‘the pran vayu'(Oxygen) circulates in the body, otherwise one is ‘dead’ in its absence. Thus ‘pranayama’ is like a nectar i.e. something life-giving for the living being. A perfect control on ‘pran vayu’ that can only be achieved through ‘pranayama’ make the man not only immortal but also makes him capable of enjoying the ‘Eternal Bliss’ and the divine powers of Almighty.
Purak, Kumbak, Rechak First inhale deeply through the right nostril. Retain the breath is stomach or head and then release it through the left nostril. Now reverse the process by inhaling through left nostrils and releasing through right.
Bhastrika Sit in the lotus pose. Now exhale and inhale alternately. It should be deep and rapid resembling the working of a blacksmith’s bellows.
There are three forms of kapalabhati. Vatakrama (wind cleansing), Vyutkarma(sinus cleansing) and Shitkarma (muscus cleansing), which are performed in the following ways:
Vatakrama: This form is appropriate to practice in a group classroom setting. Sit in a comfortable position, inhale deeply into both nostrils to begin, then exhale sharply, lifting the diaphragm, in order to emphasize the exhale, allowing the inhale to come as a passive response. Start with 3 rounds of 10 ‘pumps’ each and gradually, as you gain proficiency, increase the number of pumps and the number of rounds. Keep the physical eyes closed and gaze internally toward the third eye (ajna chakra). Vatakrama can also be done through alternate nostrils, by using the right hand in Vishnu mudra to direct the passage of air through the left or right nostrils. Although breathing is used in this technique it is not a pranayama practice and there should be no breath retention.
Vyutkrama: This practice is similar to jala neti. Take a warm bowl of mildly salted water, scoop some water into the palm of your hand and sniff the water through the nostrils. Let the water flow down into the mouth and then spit the water out from the mouth. Repeat several times.
Shitkrama: This practice is the reverse of vyutkrama. You take a mouthful of warm salty water, push it up through the nose and blow it out. The sound it makes is the sound of ‘sheet’.
On a physiological level, kapalabhati strengthens the immune system and the will to live through balancing the kapha dosha by removing excess phlegm from the tissues of the body. This makes the body of the yogi as beautiful and as attractive
It is simple but subtle practice that brightens and rejuvenates the face and eyes and brings about a state of balance leading toward increased awareness and meditative level. one of the techniques of Ashtang Yoga, meant for causing the prana (vital air) to reach the brahmarandhra (topmost portion of the skull), to make the mind completely steady and to give rise to nada (subtle sounds), the hearing of which is described as nadanusandhana.
As mentioned in Darshana Upanishad (VI 32-36), one sits in the swastika posture, inhales deeply, and holds the breath inside (kumbhaka), accompanied by the mula bandha.
While doing kumbhaka, the Shanmukhi mudra is employed by covering the openings of the ears by the two thumbs, the eyes by the index fingers, and the nostrils by the remaining fingers. This is said to make the prana reach the brahmarandhra, giving rise to nada, comprising various sounds like that of the sea, the clouds, drums etc.
Swami Ji was given the responsibility of this yoga movement in heritage. In 1888, his lineage started Shri Yog Abhyas Ashram Trust. In this 21st century, Swami Amit Dev is the torchbearer, spreading the yogic light to the world.

Thirteen years later, Yogashwar DeviDayal Ji Maharaj took over as the Third Guru Gaddi and brought radical changes in the organisation. He went on to establish more than 17 state-level bodies which are running more than 70 temples of yoga across India. They are poised to grow manifold in the coming years.
Towards the end of the last century, in 1998, Yogeshwar Surender Dev Ji Maharaj was declared the fourth guru. He established the first Yogeshwar Devi Dayal Mahamandir in Delhi the same year. Today, there are more than 75 such divya yoga mandirs around the world.
The flame his lineage lit decades ago burns bright in Yogacharya Amit Dev ji. He took over as the fifth guru in 29 October 2016 and has been since involved in innumerable activities to spread yoga to the world.
The aura of Yogacharya Amit Dev leaves everyone who interacts with him overwhelmed. With his caring heart and deep knowledge of yoga and vedas, he has enriched innumerable lives around him over the years. the organisation, is just not involved in teaching and curing people through yoga, but is also engaged in extensive research in Yogic health care and meditation.
