The Energization Excercises of Paramhansa Yogananda
“O, Infinite Spirit!”, Yogananda taught to pray at the beginning of these exercises:
“Recharge this* body with Thy Cosmic Energy
Recharge this* mind with concentration
And recharge this* soul with Thy ever new joy.
O eternal youth of body and mind
Abide in me, forever and forever.”
(*or you can say “my”)
The Energization Exercises, as taught in the Ananda Course in Self-Realization, are a wonderful system of exercises originated by Paramhansa Yogananda. They are, undoubtedly, his unique contribution to the science of yoga.
Based on ancient teachings and eternal realities, Yogananda explains that the whole physical universe, including man, is surrounded by, and made of cosmic energy. We can, through the act of our will, release tension that blocks the energy flow to our body and mind, and draw on this infinite storehouse of life-force all around us. Through daily use of these exercises we can systematically recharge our bodies with greater energy and train our minds to understand the true source of that power.
