Yoga is the timeless practice of unity and connection with the Cosmic Consciousness. In its essence, Yoga signifies the eternal bond that ensures we are never separate from the divine source of Cosmic Energy, which sustains our very existence.

At the heart of Yoga lies the philosophy of Sunyoga, where the concept of “Yog” embodies the inner light within each of us. This inner light merges seamlessly with the universal light, illuminating our path toward oneness with the Cosmos. The true union between our inner selves and the celestial realms occurs when the frequency of our internal vibrations aligns harmoniously with the universal vibrations.

In this sacred union, we realize that the entirety of the macro cosmos also resides within the microcosmos of ourselves. Every aspect of the Universe, every spark of light, is intricately woven into the fabric of our being. Through self-realization, the veil of existence is lifted, revealing the profound secrets of Creation.

Self-realization stands as the ultimate remedy to life’s myriad challenges. When we attune ourselves to the frequency of the Universe, enlightenment dawns upon us. It is in this divine alignment that we truly comprehend the essence of existence and experience the boundless radiance of enlightenment.

Yog means “inner light,” which becomes one with universal light when ignited. The union of the inner self with the Cosmos or the heavenly father occurs when our internal vibration’s frequency matches the universal vibration’s frequency. Whatever exists in the macro cosmos also exists in the micro cosmos or individual self, meaning that all the light of the Universe may also be concealed in the physical body. Everything in the Universe is inside us; when self-realization happens, the secret of existence and Creation becomes evident. Self-realization is the ultimate solution to life’s problems. When we are one with the Universe, then we experience enlightenment.

Sunyogi directing

In our journey through life, we often find ourselves seeking guidance in all directions, yet feeling disconnected and confined by narrow awareness. The path to true connection may seem small, but it requires a delicate balance of inner and outer harmony, shedding the layers of ego that cloud our perception.

Through the practice of meditation, we can expand our consciousness beyond the confines of our physical bodies, reaching out to embrace the essence of the five elements – Earth, Sun, galaxy, and Universe. This expansion, from the individual to the cosmic, is what defines Yoga. It is the sacred union of our souls with the Supreme Soul, a connection nurtured through the science of Yoga.

Within the realm of Yoga, there exist diverse paths, each offering unique techniques to facilitate this connection. Yet, true effectiveness is found in methods developed by enlightened saints. Unfortunately, the purity of these techniques often becomes diluted over time as they are tampered with by those lacking complete understanding.

Having a physically alive, fully enlightened guru to guide us is invaluable. Their wisdom can help us navigate obstacles that may impede our progress. While physical health through practices like Hatha Yoga is important, it is merely a stepping stone on the path to Cosmic Consciousness.

Certain forms of Yoga, such as meditation focusing on the third eye, can accelerate our progress. By balancing higher chakras like the Ajna Chakra, the lower chakras naturally align. These paths, known as Gyan Marg or the Knowledge Path, include Sunyoga. In Sunyoga, the Sun serves as a conduit for connection to Cosmic Consciousness or Cosmic Energy. The cornerstone of Sunyoga is Sun Meditation, a powerful practice that leads us towards the profound realization of our unity with the Universe.

What is Sunyoga?

Unlocking the boundless potential of Cosmic Energy is within reach through our connection to the Sun, the ultimate source of life. Balancing our bodies and minds becomes effortless as we tap into this universal energy. But how do we establish this connection? It all begins with creating the right mindset – one of gratitude, reverence, and unwavering focus.

As we embark on our meditation journey, we direct our gaze towards the Sun, engaging our third eye. Our eyes remain wide open to absorb the Sun’s brilliance, yet angled maximum upwards to prevent direct rays into the eyes. Ultimately, the Sun will not be visible with our physical eyes. All the time, it is crucial that we intend to create and feel friendship with the Sun and free our minds from all expectations. Thus avoid getting distracted by our thoughts and instead surrender and fully immerse ourselves in the experience.

Photon Energy vis the five Elements to Life described by Mahavtar Babaji to Sunyogi.

Mahavatar Babaji revealed to Sunyogi the transformative power of Photon Energy, which, upon entering our bodies, is transmuted into the five elemental energies – Space, Fire, Air, Water, and Earth. These vital forces course through our being, nourishing every cell and organ and restoring balance and vitality. Even the most entrenched ailments yield to the healing touch of this cosmic energy.

However, Sun Meditation is merely the pinnacle of Sunyoga – a comprehensive path to spiritual enlightenment. Emphasizing the importance of a solid foundation, Sunyoga advocates for disciplined practices like Yama, Niyama, and Asana. With this groundwork, our spiritual ascent becomes steady and sustainable, leading us toward a state of perpetual meditative awareness.

Through dedicated Sunyoga practice, we transcend personal barriers, fostering inner peace, harmony, and brotherhood. Each day brings us closer to self-realization, equipping us with the wisdom to navigate life’s myriad challenges. In the radiant light of the Sun, we find not only illumination but also the profound purpose of our existence.

Sunyoga basic principles

Before delving into Sunyoga, it’s crucial to lay a solid foundation by embracing key principles that purify the mind and enhance concentration through meditation. These principles, elucidated through the first three steps of the eightfold path of Yoga – Yama, Nyama, and Asana – form the bedrock of spiritual practice.

Yama, the cornerstone of Yoga, marks the inception of the seeker’s journey. It’s a stage of introspection where fundamental questions like “Who am I?” and “What is the purpose of life?” are pondered. Here, one formulates a life plan, aligning their aspirations with inner calling and surrendering to a higher purpose.

With a plan in place, Nyama ushers in the phase of execution. Discipline and punctuality become paramount as the seeker navigates challenges with unwavering resolve. The strength of the foundation laid in Yama determines the ease of implementation in Nyama, underscoring the importance of clarity and commitment.


Asana, the third step, emphasizes the cultivation of correct posture and attitude. Central to this practice is maintaining a straight and relaxed spine, allowing the free flow of divine energy through the body’s energy channels. With the spine aligned, the seeker is poised to embark on the practice of meditation, with postures like Padmasana, Siddhasana, and Gomukasana serving as effective conduits for spiritual exploration.

By adhering to these foundational principles, seekers prepare themselves for the profound journey of Sunyoga, where the radiant light of the Sun illuminates the path to spiritual awakening and inner transformation.

Ancient Sunyoga techniques

Sunyoga, once widely understood, has seen its spiritual essence diluted over time by evolving belief systems. As elucidated by Manly P. Hall in “The Secret Teachings of All Ages,” ancient religions perceived the visible Sun not as the primary source of power, but rather as a reflector of the invisible spiritual Sun – the true wellspring of life, light, and truth.

Developed by Sunyogi Umasankar under the divine grace of Mahavatar Babaji, Sunyoga represents a modern adaptation to contemporary culture and society. Worshiping the Sun, seen as the ultimate visible embodiment of spiritual energy, is a natural progression for cultures that recognize its significance on the path toward enlightenment. Human instinct gravitates toward honoring the Sun as the giver of life, reflecting our innate reverence for its radiant energy.

Over time, teachings evolve, influenced by changes in language, symbolism, and cultural contexts, potentially leading to misunderstandings. Enlightened gurus play a vital role in safeguarding the integrity of these teachings, guiding seekers to uncover the genuine wisdom hidden within. Across continents, various forms of Sun Gazing or Sun worship have been practiced, each reflecting humanity’s deep-seated connection to the Sun’s spiritual symbolism.

Looking back thousands of years, before the advent of formal religions, human societies operated within an intuitive framework, incorporating all aspects of life into a unified continuum. This holistic worldview recognized the Sun as the closest gateway to heaven, symbolizing the highest embodiment of spiritual enlightenment on the physical plane. It was an era where humanity revered the Sun as the source of life and identified themselves as the children of the Sun, dwelling in paradisiacal harmony with its divine light.
