Prana, one’s vital energy, determines the function of one’s entire system. Sadhguru discusses the five manifestations of prana in the body, the pancha vayus, and their role in the kriya practices.

Prana,一个人的生命能量,决定了他整个系统的运作状态。萨古鲁谈到人体内五种生命能量(pancha vayus)的表现形式,以及它们在克里亚瑜伽练习中扮演的角色。

Sadhguru: Whatever you do in life, how your body, your mind, and your whole system function is ultimately determined by your vital energy or prana. Prana is an intelligent energy. Since prana has the karmic memory of the individual imprinted on it, it functions in each person in a unique manner. By contrast, electricity does not have memory or intelligence. It can light up a light bulb, run a camera, and do a million other things, not because of its intelligence but because of the particular device that it powers. In the future, there may be smart electricity too. If you manage to imprint energy with a certain memory, you can make it behave in a certain way.

萨古鲁:不论你一生中从事什么,你的身体、头脑以及你整个系统的运作状态,最终都是由你的生命能量(prana)决定的。生命能量是一种有智慧的能量。由于生命能量中印刻着一个人的业力记忆,所以,它在每个人体内的运作方式都是独一无二的。相比之下,电能就没有记忆,或智慧。电可以点亮灯泡,让照相机能够拍照,它可以做千千万万种事情,这并不是出自于它的智慧,而是因为它给某种设备充进了能量。将来,智能电力可能也会出现。如果你可以给能量印刻上某种记忆,就可以赋予它某种行为方式。

Since prana has the karmic memory of the individual imprinted on it, it functions in each person in a unique manner.

由于生命能量上印刻着一个人的业力记忆,所以,它在每个人体内的运作方式都是独一无二的。

 

The Pancha Vayus

五种生命能量

 

There are five basic manifestations of prana in the body. These pancha vayus – prana vayu, samana vayu, udana vayu, apana vayu, and vyana vayu – direct different aspects of the human mechanism. Through yogic practices like the Shakti Chalana Kriya, you can take charge of the pancha vayus. If you gain mastery over these five vayus, you will be free from most ailments, particularly psychological ones. This is something that the world needs today.

人体内的生命能量有五种基本表现形式。这五种生命能量——prana vayu、samana vayu、udana vayu、apana vayu和 vyana vayu,各自掌管着人体机能的不同方面。通过类似于Shakti Chalana克里亚(译者注:一种在Isha的高阶课程——Shoonya中教授的练习),你就能掌控这五种生命能量。如果你实现对它们的掌控,就能免受大部分疾病的困扰,尤其是心理上的疾病。在当今世界,这是非常需要的。

Unless we act now, in the next fifty years, the number of people who are psychologically imbalanced, disturbed, or deranged will increase many times over due to various factors in our lifestyles. We are handling many aspects of our lives in a grossly negligent way, for which we are going to pay the price. If you take charge of your prana, whatever the external situation may be, you will remain psychologically balanced. Right now, a whole lot of people are psychologically imbalanced, though not everyone may have a medical diagnosis.

除非我们现在就采取行动,否则,在接下来的九十年以内,心理失衡、精神失调、精神错乱的人会因为我们生活方式中的诸多因素而成倍增长。我们现在以如此随便的态度应付生命中的各个方面,我们将会为此付出代价。如果你掌控好你的生命能量,那么,不论外界环境如何,你都能保持心理上的平稳。

Prana, Balance, and Health

生命能量、平衡和健康

 

Suppose your hand does its own thing and pokes you in the eye, scratches you and beats you – that is a sickness. This is what most people’s minds are doing. Every day, the mind pokes them from inside, makes them cry, bawl, or worry – in so many ways, it creates suffering for them. That means it is sick, even if in a socially accepted manner. Every kind of suffering that human beings are going through day in and day out is created in the mind. This sickness has set in, and it will multiply because of the social structures, the technology around us, and various other influences.

假如你的手不听你的指令,戳你的眼睛,抓你自己,打你自己,这就是种病。而现在大部分人的头脑正是这样运作的。每一天,他们的头脑都从里面戳他们,让他们哭泣、哭嚎、担忧,头脑以各种方式为他们创造出痛苦。这意味着头脑生病了,虽然这种病态是为社会所接纳的。人们日复一日经历的各种痛苦都是在头脑中创造出来的。这种病态已经蔓延,它将会受到社会结构、技术,以及各种其他因素的影响而加倍放大。

Through yogic practices like the Shakti Chalana Kriya, you can to take charge of the pancha vayus.

通过类似于Shakti Chalana克里亚的练习,你就能掌控这五种生命能量。

 

One who takes charge of one’s prana can be one hundred percent assured to have unshakable psychological balance. This should also prevent physiological ailments to a large extent, though an element of risk remains due to various reasons, including infections and all kinds of chemicals and poisons that we are exposed to on a daily basis. There is no absolute control over what we take in through the air, water, and food, no matter how careful we are about what we consume. How much impact it has on us depends upon each individual.

一个掌控了生命能量的人,就一定会拥有无法动摇的心理上的平稳。同时,掌控生命能量也能在很大程度上预防身体疾病,虽然,由于各种因素的影响,还是会存在患病的风险,这些因素包括感染,我们日常接触到的各种化学物、毒药等等。不论我们如何谨慎对待摄入的空气、水和食物,我们都无法完全掌控会有什么东西随之进入体内。至于这些会给我们带来多大的影响,则会因人而异。

Physiological health cannot be guaranteed one hundred percent for external reasons. But psychological wellbeing can be one hundred percent guaranteed if you take charge of your prana. If you are psychologically in an extremely good place, a few physiological issues will not be a problem. Most of the time, minor bodily conditions are less of an issue than the reactions to them that happen in your mind. How the pranas function within you, how they transact with the rest of the universe, how they enter a newborn, and how they leave the dead, all clearly show they have an intelligence of their own.

由于外界因素的影响,身体健康是无法百分百保证的。但如果你掌控了生命能量,心理上的健康就有了百分百的保障。如果你心理状态非常好,身体上的一些毛病就不会是个问题了。大多数时候,比起人们的头脑对身体上小毛病所起的反应来说,毛病本身算不上什么问题。你体内的生命能量如何运作,它们如何与整个宇宙交流互动,如何进入新生儿体内,如何离开死者身体,这些都清晰地显示出,生命能量是有自己的智慧的。

Shakti Chalana Kriya – Working With Your Prana

Shakti Chalana克里亚——作用于你的生命能量

It takes a certain level of attention and awareness to know how the five pranas are functioning. The Shakti Chalana Kriya is a fabulous process, but you need to be attentive. It requires you to keep yourself focused for forty to sixty minutes. Most people cannot keep their mind on a full inhalation. Midway, their thoughts wander off, or they lose count or track. It takes months and years of practice to come to a point where you can keep your focus on the breath for the full set of cycles.

要想体验到五种生命能量的运作方式,需要一定的专注度和觉知力。Shakti Chalana克里亚是一个非凡的练习,但你需要非常专注,你得保持专注四十分钟到六十分钟之久。大部分人的头脑都无法在一个完整的吸气过程中保持专注。在中途,念头就将他们带跑了,或者数着数着就不知道数了多少了。需要数月乃至数年的练习,你才能够一整套练习中都将专注力保持在呼吸上。

That is why Shakti Chalana is always taught in tandem with Shoonya. The Shoonya meditation is to bring yourself to a place where, if you close your eyes, the world is gone in your experience. This is a blessing all of you should earn at some point. Only if you make yourself like this, are you capable of staying focused on something. Forceful concentration is not going to achieve anything.

这就是为什么Shakti Chalana克里亚总是会和Shoonya同时教授。Shoonya冥想是为了带你进入一种状态,这样,你闭上眼睛时,在你的体验中,世界就消失了。这是种恩典,你们所有人将来都应该达到这种状态。只有这样,你才能保持专注。强迫自己保持专注是没有用的。

If you close your eyes, the only things that should exist for you are your breath, your heartbeat, processes in your body, and the workings of your prana. Only what is happening inside is life. What is happening on the outside is just imagery. Even when you look at other people, you are not seeing them out there but the way they are projected on your screen [in your brain].

当你闭上眼睛时,唯一应该存在的就只是你的呼吸、你的心跳、你体内的运作过程,以及你生命能量的运行,只有内在发生的才是生命。外界发生的就只是影像而已。即便在你看着他人时,你不是在外面看到他们,你看到的是他们在你头脑的屏幕中投射出的影像。

Staying Focused Is Key

保持专注是关键

 

Shoonya and other sadhana are towards that. How far you go is a different question, especially in today’s world. I am not against what is happening today in terms of life around. But unfortunately, to be flaky is fashionable – profound is out. With such an attitude, there is no way you can move your attention to how life works within you. This does not mean that it is not possible for every human being – it is. It all depends on what importance you ascribe to it. If you make it your number one priority, everything within you will organize itself accordingly.

Shoonya和其它灵性练习就有助于你保持专注。你能达到什么程度是另一回事,尤其是在当今世界,我并不是针对周围的生命——但不幸的是,如今,浅薄成了时尚——深刻却过时了。带着这种态度,你根本不可能将注意力转移到生命在你体内的运作方式上,并不是说对每个人来说都不可能做到——可能性是有的,这就取决于你赋予它的重要性有多高,如果你把它当作最重要的事,你内在的一切都会随之重组自己。

If your priorities are in different directions, you will go all over the place, not getting anywhere in terms of life on a fundamental level. On a social level, you may be getting somewhere. On a physical level, your body is going straight towards the grave – at the most, you can extend the route a little. As far as your mind is concerned, it is going round and round. Only if you focus on the fundamental nature of life will you really get somewhere. The life within you is the only real thing – the rest are just projections. But right now, most of the attention is on projections, not the real thing.

如果你把重心放在很多不同的事情上,你就会到处忙得团团转,但就生命的基本层面来说,却没有任何进展。在社会层面上,你可能会做出些成就,在身体层面看,你的身体是径直走向坟墓的——你最多也就只是将这条道路延长了一点而已。就你的头脑而言,它一直都在原地打转。只有你专注在生命的本性上,你才能实现真正的成功。你内在的生命是唯一真实的东西——其它的都只是投射而已。但现在,我们大多数人的注意力都放在各种投射上,而不是放在真正的东西上。

With the Shakti Chalana Kriya, the transformation happens gradually. Taking charge of your prana and its different activities in your system is a fantastic process. The Shakti Chalana Kriya works on that level. If you practice it, you are strengthening the very foundations of your system.

随着Shakti Chalana克里亚的练习,转化会渐渐产生。逐渐掌控你的生命能量以及它们在你系统内进行的各项活动是一个非常美妙的过程。Shakti Chalana克里亚就是作用于这个层面的。练习它,你就能不断强化你系统的根基。

Shambhavi – Beyond Prana

香巴维——超越能量

 

The Shambhavi Mahamudra has the potential to let you touch the dimension that is the basis of all that is. But you cannot actively make it happen. You can only set the ambience. We always refer to Shambhavi as “she.” There has to be devotion for Shambhavi to yield. You can only come in touch with the source of creation – there is nothing for you to do with it. Shambhavi also has an element of pranayam in it, which brings many benefits.

香巴维大手印(Shambhavi Mahamudra)能让你触及万物存有的根源这一维度,它有这个潜力。但你无法主动实现这一点,你只能营造这种氛围。我们总是将香巴维称为“她”。只有带着虔诚之心,香巴维才会顺服于你。对于造物之源,你只能去触及它,而无法对它做什么。香巴维里面也有能量控制(pranayam)的成分,这能带来很多益处。

The important thing about the Shambhavi kriya is that it is a tool to touch the source of creation, which is beyond prana. This could happen on the first day, or you could be doing it for six months and nothing happens. But if you keep it up, the day will come when you touch this dimension. If you touch it, suddenly everything is transformed.

香巴维克里亚一个很重要的面向就是,它是一个能让你触及创造之源的工具,这是超越能量层面的。有可能开启第一天你就触及到了,也有可能,你练习了六个月却什么都没发生。但如果你坚持下去,总有一天,你会触及这个维度。如果你触及了,一瞬间,所有一切都会被转化。
