Gorakshanath: Siddha Siddhanta Paddhati: #HathaYoga #Adinath

'The Parampada is also known as Anama, or the nameless. The Pinda itself is Shakti. Pinda means, literally, a ball or an egg. This egg is the cosmic egg or Macrocosm. and also the microcosmic egg, or the human being. It has six forms, called in this text Para (Supreme). Anadi (Without Origin), Adi (Origin), Mahasakara (Great Body), Prakrita (Natural Body) and Garbha (Womb-born Body).

Each of these six aspects of Pinda has itself five factors, these being subdivided into five other divisions. So each of the six aspects of Pinda has 25 qualities.

The five divisions partake of the nature of Space, Air, Water, Fire and Earth -- the five elements or Bhutas. This work primarily belongs to the Kanphat or Gorakhnathi tradition, and having many contacts with the Adinath tradition, should be compared with Kaula Jnana Nirnayam (Prachya Prakashan, 1986). Descriptions of the chakras should not be taken at face value. Many different chakra systems exist. It is only in recent history that the one described in Avalon's Serpent Power has come into general vague.

The first of the six Pindas is Para, or the Supreme. This is identified with Shakti, whose 25 divisions are shown as follows:
