Raja Yoga

Raja yoga is the second stage large stage of the psychoenergetic direction of yoga. (The first stage is hatha yoga).

This stage implies special work on cleansing and developing specific energy systems of the organism — chakras and meridians and also refinement of the consciousness. Among other things, one has to learn:

1. To move with the lump of the consciousness from one chakra to another. The criterion that the exercise is done correctly is one’s gaining the ability to look from the chakras.

2. To work with the microcosmic orbit; this facilitates cleansing and refinement of the energies inside the body and the cocoon.

3. To cleanse the main meridians.

The purpose of work with these structures is to cleanse them to transparency and also to develop them — in order to connect through them with the Divine level of subtlety.

The term Raja yoga is used in Hindu and Buddhist traditions. Variations of this practice were developed also in Chinese Taoism and Muslim Sufism. They existed on the territory of Russia before its “christening”, but the only spiritual practice of this level that is known in Christianity is the Jesus prayer.
