Re: Surya Namaskar Ritual
Instead of starting another Surya Namaskar Ritual thread, or adding to the puja thread, I thought I'd ask my questions here.
Firstly, I have no problem understanding the asanas. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surya_Namaskara#Practice and
I may have a flexibility problem and a bit of an "obstruction" in my midsection but I can do them "after a fashion" to start. In fact, I need to develop flexibility.
My question really centers on the mantras. For example, what is meant by the seed? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surya_N...ce_and_chakras Is it recited before the mantra? I'm sure I can look up the chakras, as the instructions are to focus on the chakra associated with the particular asana being performed.
