Chapter 88- Discourse on Chaya Purusha Lakshanam

Swami started explaining the ‘Chaya Purusha Lakshanam’ kind of yogic secret to them saying, “Son! One should concentrate his mind on one’s own ‘Kantha’ (neck) and then with a sacred heart should look at the clean sky. Then ‘Chaya Purusha’ would be seen by the individual. If he appears to be shrunken then that indicates – loss of wealth for the individual. If he appears in yellow color, that indicates – profit and long life for the individual. If the ‘Chaya Purusha’ appears as bulky (hefty), that indicates – wealth. If he appears in blue color, that indicates – death for the individual. If he appears in red color, that indicates that the individual would gain position, or throne (‘Rajya Prapti’). If the ‘Chaya Purusha’ appears without a head, that indicates – the death of the individual in next six months”.

Swami continued, “If that ‘Chaya Purusha’ appears to be having a hole in his center (belly) then it indicates – famine for the country. If he appears with brilliance (‘Tejas’) that indicates that the earth would be fertile, and prosperous. If the ‘Chaya Purusha’ appears without shoulders, that indicates that – the individual’s sons would die. If he appears without having a phallus, that indicates that – the individual’s wife would die”.

Swami concluded saying, “Moreover, if an individual practices seeing this ‘Chaya Purusha’ daily, then that ‘Chaya Purusha’ would become like a friend to the individual and would bestow him the power of becoming a ‘Trikalagyani’ (one who can know past, present and future)”.
Govindayya thanked his father many times and everyone went inside the Mutt for ‘Shva Puja’ (to worship Lord Shiva).

  4. "Chaya Purusha Sadhana: Meditation on the Shadow Man

    The cultivation of the shadow man is another method of concentration. To do this exercise, stand in the sun when the sky is perfectly clear so that your shadow appears clearly and distinctly in front of you, approximately five to ten feet in length. Focus your attention on your shadow at a point at the base of its neck. Hold this view with the eyes steady, the lids slightly opened, for as long as you can. When the eyes become tired and begin to tear, close and open them a time or two, and then raise the head to look into the clear sky. There you will see a figure, a full shadow which is capable of appearing in many colors. Hold this figure in your concentration for as long as you possibly can. By practicing this exercise regularly, the shadow will become transparent, and then you will see two shadows. The first, an outer shell, will appear gradually more transparent, and eventually you will see features on the shadow. Finally these features will turn to face you and you will realize you are looking at yourself. This is a concentration exercise which may be done as a part of your usual practice. This practice may also be done on a moonlit night. It is only suited to those localities where cloudless skies are available for several months."
