Bhuta Shuddhi Initiation Process

(Shadadhva Shodhan Initiation Process)

Guru performs Shadadhva shodhana or Bhuta Shuddhi initiation process if he find disciple a deserved candidate, by which the disciple gets liberated from all bondages.  Kalaa, Tattva (element), Bhuwan (shape), Varna (color), Pada (deity), and Mantra (seed mantra)  are 6 kind of adhvaas.  First Adhva  is Kalaa.  There are 5 types of Kalaa adhva which is the form of earth etc. five elements.  Nivritti Kalaa is form of earth element, Pratishtha Kalaa is form of water element, Vidya Kalaa is form of fire element, Shantikalaa is form of air element and Shatyatithakalaa is form of sky element.  This way, the stable element (earth), non-stable element (air), cool element (water), hot element (fire), integrated and pervasive sky element are contemplated in bhuta shuddhi or shadadhva shodhan initiation process.  Tatva, bhuwan, varna, pada and mantra, these 5 adhvaas are pervaded by 5 kalaa adhvaas. Purification of 5 kalaas and 5 elements and integration of these in avyaya (indeclinable) Brahma (God, supreme-self) is known as bhuta shuddhi or shadadhva shodhan.  For that, first of all guru awakens kundalini power of disciple which resides in muladhara chakra, and pulls it up via way of sushmana nadi piercing swadhishthana chakra, manipur chakra to anahata chakra seated in heart.  There resides conscious (jiva) of disciple in the form of flame of earthen lamp.  Gur puts this jiva in mouth of kundalini and pulls it up piercing vishuddha chakra (in throat) and ajna chakra (between eyebrows) and takes it to sahasrara chakra situated at brahmarandhra.  God resides here at Sahasrara chakra.  Guru merges (or unites) kundalini with jiva in supreme-self.  During this process, earth element (square shape, yellow color, Brahmaa deity, seed mantra Lam, Nivritti Kalaa, from sole of feet to thighs) is merged in water element (from thighs to navel, half moon shaped, white color, Vishnu deity, seed mantra Vam, pratishtha kalaa).  Water element s merged into fire element (from navel to heart, triangle shape, red color, Lord Shiva deity, seed mantra Ram, Vidya Kalaa).  Fire element is merged into air element (from heart to eyebrows, circular shape, smoke color, Ishan deity, seed mantra Yam, Shanti kalaa).  Air element is merged into sky element (from eyebrows to brahmarandhra, spherical shape, transparent color, Sadashiva diety, seed mantra Ham, Shantyateetha kalaa).  After that sky element is merged into ego (ahamkar), ego is merged into Mahat tattva (intellect), intellect is merged into nature (prakriti) and prakriti is merged into paramatma (supreme-self).  This way guru purifies the subtle and casual body of disciple and meditate on Paap Purusha (Man of Sin) in left womb of disciple.  Brahmahatya is the head of man of sin, theft of gold is his hands, drinking wine is his heart, going against order of guru is his lower back, sinful people are his legs.  His all body parts are made of sin.  He is fulfilled with desire for sex and anger and has swords etc. weapons in his hands.  To desiccate this man of sin (paap Purusha) guru recite 16 times the seed mantra of air element "Yam" with breathing in, and meditate that he is desiccate that man by air produced by seed mantra Yam.  After that guru keep the breath-in (kumbhak) and recite 64 times seed mantra of fire element "Ram" and man of sin with subtle body of disciple is reduced to ashes by the fire produced by seed mantra Ram.  Then to expel this ash, guru recites air element seed mantra Yam 32 times with breathing out.  Then Guru meditates that this ash is immersed into nectar particles produced by reciting water element seed mantra Vam.  Then he meditates that this ash is solidified by reciting earth element seed mantra Lam, and establishes emotion of self in it, and construct all body parts of casual body of disciple from head to toe with reciting sky element seed mantra Ham.  THen construct the pure subtle adhvamaya body of disciple from prakriti (Nature) to fove elements.  Then invoke Ishta dev on heart and worship him there, and takes kundalini to muladhara chakra again.  Then guru consider residence of God itself in disciple, and sets divine properties/powers like anima etc. in the disciple illuminated by brilliance of God.  And pray God "O God! Be happy on me!" and again meditate divine powers of omniscience (sarvagyata, kowing-all), contentment (tripti), realization of cause-endlessness, everlasting power, freedom, infinite power in disciple.

Then he gives mantra of Ishta Dev to disciple and pray to Ishta Dev "Please fulfill whatever I did." and then guru and disciple bow down to God (Ishta Dev). After bow down, guru disperse Ishta Deva from place of initiation as well as from sacred fire of hawan.  This way, disciple becomes pure and divine through Bhuta Shuddhi initiation process or shadadhva shodhan initiation process by getting love, power, proximity, complete union and grace of God and deserves worship of Ishta Deva.

When a devotee doesn't have any guru and makes God itself Guru and worship him with deep love and devotion then Ishta Deva comes and sits on lotus seat of heart of devotee and the bhuta shuddhi or shadadhva shodhan intiation is performed by God at suitable and appropriate times, but devotee is not able to understand this process.  He feels something is happening with him, but he doesn't come to know what exactly is happening and how.  Still a devotee imersed in love and devotion of God, is purified completely, becomes divine and gets love, power, nearness, complete union and grace of God.  He also possess divine powers of omniscience (all-knowing), contentment (tripti), realization of cause-endlessness, everlasting power, freedom and infinite power by the grace of God.

Even then, such kind of devotee himself or on intuition can perform the above said bhut-shuddhi process.  He should concentrate and meditate on "God himself is my guru and he is awakening the kundalini residing in muladhara chakra, god is pulling it up towards heart" and so on.  By doing this the obstacles in yoga practice are destroyed and speed of practice is increased.

Next step of Yoga system is Hearing (Shravan).
