"Everything in the great cosmos contains many linkeages. Any object that has any type of interaction with another object, and within itself, has an opposing, yet interdependent nature. This opposing and interdependent nature, is due to the interaction of Yin and Yang. The Yin and Yang philosophy is a means to understand the laws of nature. It is the empirical reasoning for the production, development and perishing of all things in the great cosmos." (Grandmaster Liang) from Qigong Empowerment ..
The best book on Qigong including Medical, Taoist, Buddhist, and Wushu Energy Cultivation) Recommended reading for my classes. I have the most respect for Master Liang and spent 10 years sometimes reluctantly attending his classes, it was the hardest thing I have ever done because it is difficult to be consistent living in the world raising children. It is easy when you are young but as you get older time pulls us in so many directions, you may be able to do it in your 20, 30's and 40's but it is the true seeker who can keep going . Keep on going, do not stop!
If we personalize Yin and Yang discussed by Master Liang into the Traditions of India, Yin is (Shakti) the Feminine Principle innner, and Yang (Shiva) Masculine outer, the laws of nature the Mahabhuta's, the Guna's, Creation Bramha/Saraswati, Maitenance Vishnu/Laxshmi and destruction Shiva/Parvathy.
This Life is ... one strange trip with many winding paths.
I remember the Taoist Story told to me by Grand Master Liang, I am sure many have heard this story.
" This farmer had only one horse, and one day the horse ran away. The neighbors came to condole over his terrible loss. The farmer said, "What makes you think it is so terrible?"
A month later, the horse came home--this time bringing with her two beautiful wild horses. The neighbors became excited at the farmer's good fortune. Such lovely strong horses! The farmer said, "What makes you think this is good fortune?"
The farmer's son was thrown from one of the wild horses and broke his leg. All the neighbors were very distressed. Such bad luck! The farmer said, "What makes you think it is bad?"
A war came, and every able-bodied man was conscripted and sent into battle. Only the farmer's son, because he had a broken leg, remained. The neighbors congratulated the farmer. "What makes you think this is good?" said the farmer.

Medical Qigong is the Chinese system of Taoist energy work there are millions of ways (energy work Chi or Qi is energy, Kung or Gong is work, you will see it spelled in a variety of different ways but it is all the same) it is taught that one must continually keep a flow of fresh light and prana.
(Prana is the Indian sanskrit term for breath, breath or life force or energy) it is important to keep this prana or Qi circulating through our bodies to prevent disease. Our bodies can be energized with this flow of energy and circulated on a daily basis to prevent stagnation of energy from becoming solid mental forms. Remember thoughts are things and they can solidify and develop a life of their own, we can create an independent life that can create conflict or disease in our very own home, our body.
The Heart and Intestines can store, hate cruelty and impatience, Fire too much heated, you will hear people say man they are on fire what a hot head or heated debate, too much energy is stored in the heart this must be cooled down.

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
It is my thought there is very little respect.. this does not mean being blind.. Respect is an understanding that this person has really given there life to their art…. It is a blessing to even be allowed to learn the techniques…
It does not belong to us… In western culture we are so used to taking and selling.. ….
The bowing is respect for the gift that the giver is bestowing on us…. it is much more but I think as Westerners we take and give no credit or respect to the ancient traditions….it goes so much deeper, and the depth will only come with respect, both in Yoga and Chinese martial arts..
Grace comes through the lineage.
To reach deeper and deeper levels you must be worthy, there are divine beings watching on the subtle levels, when you enter the Masters space you are automatically being watched on the subtle level. I also realize most of the people teaching yoga are not Masters, they are teaching fitness classes, so I would say just friendly respect, the kind of respect you would have for everybody and everything…..
There is a difference between a master and a regular person, these distinctions also need to be made. Practice by treating everybody with respect.. animals, trees, flowers, yourself and all that you meet… love all, respect all…serve all…
Below is an outline of Respect when receiving teaching from a lineage teacher… Master, or sacred teachings..
٭ Bow to Shifu when entering and leaving the training hall!
٭ If you are late for class, bow to join in. If you need to leave
early, tell your Instructor! This also applies to instructors who are taking classes!
٭ If you know you will be missing classes, tell your instructors in
advance. Don’t just disappear!
٭ Help to keep the school clean & tidy – when you see something that
needs doing, DO IT!
٭ Have Respect for all, including yourself.
Your martial arts training hall is a School and a
Family! Endeavour to Help and Love each other.
(As Shifu says: Respect from each other, Help from each other, Love
from each other.)
٭ Be Humble. Be Kind. Be Patient.
٭ Be open to learning, (to the teachings) and keep a positive attitude.
٭ Always try and do your best.
٭ Strive to do better, to improve, to be more successful – Persevere.
٭ Cultivate Virtue: Morality, Righteousness, Honesty, Trust, Loyalty, Courage, …
٭ Be a good person. Lead by Example!
٭ Any problems (physical, financial, emotional…) – tell
Instructor/Shifu – feel free to talk.
٭ When watching other Students and Instructors – Individuals, please
keep in mind:
Basics & Principles are the same – flavour, preference & understanding
may be different.
٭ ٭ ٭ ALWAYS BE RESPECTFU!!! ٭ ٭ ٭
Trishula Productions presents:
Baul Mystic Yoga & Qigong Synergy
Techniques for Empowerment, strength, health, happiness, balance and Love.
Manifesting your inner self , creating your outer world. A Sankalpa revolution strengthening focus and determination towards your personal dharma including a jyotish reading to aid you in focusing in the right direction. Learn to become the seer in your own life.
I created this web sites www.mysticbhakti.weebly.com and www.trishuladas.com, along with the blogs with unique articles about mysticism, the Lineage Bauls of Bengal and the Vedic, Tantric and Purnaic Goddesses of India. These articles come from my own experiences and the experiences of my husband "Babukishan aka Krishnendu Das Baul” a Mystic Baul from Bengal, an ancient oral living lineage thousands of years old, a rare and unique mystical bhakti tradition.
Babukishan spent 12 years as a Vedic Monk in the Ramakrishna order in Kolkata, fluent in Sanskrit. He has been a cultural representative of India for more that 40 years traveling worldwide lecturing and performing Baul around the world. He is a multi-talented Indian Master of classical, folk, Baul and an Award winning Bollywood music composer and a Master of world fusion music. Babu has played with the best of the East and West including Bob Dylan & The Band, George Harrison, The Rolling Stones, Miles Davis and many more.
For More info on Babukishan
Baul Mystic Yoga is about being in the World but not of the World, having one foot firmly planted in the world and one foot firmly planted in heaven.
Baul Mystic Yoga and Qigong Synergy is mystic yoga and qigong for the western mind although I am married to an Indian I have a western mind with the unique opportunity of being exposed to the original authentic traditions. I have translated these traditions into easily digestible practices keeping as close to the original as possible. This is an experiential Yoga and Qigong for self-realization and empowerment, a recognition of the divine feminine and bringing together heaven and earth.
Coming soon we will be publishing our books listed on the ‘Product page’ along with my designs of clothing and unique Yoga Jewellery , this has been in the works for sometime and will be presented soon. I will be presenting hand-made Baul instruments, all carefully crafted, tuned and empowered with mantra shakti.
A portion of everything sold will go to the ‘Non- profit, “Ektara Foundation” in support of the ‘Bhava Project (Baul Historical Ashram and Vedic Academy) BHAVA for the
preservation of the Bauls of Bengal, including education, food and health care for the Bauls in Bhirbum, Bengal, India.
The BHAVA Project has been a dream of Babukishan's for 30 years but due to circumstances it never came to fruition. He wants to help the poor Bauls and preserve his tradtition through education. The Vaishnava Bauls are very poor and almost extinct, they are a unique and intangible history of mankind, as it is the Vaishnava oral history of Bengal India going back thousands of years. More details will be developed over the next few month out, there will be a board of directors appointed to oversee this project.
I am a Baul scholar initiated and tutored in the tradition by Babukishan aka Krishnendu Das Baul an authentic Baul trained in the oral tradition. I am not a scholar in the regular sense of a PHD who is not inside the tradition, but a Baul scholar from inside the "tradition" I have been graced by being tutored from inside the tradition of the only Lineage of Baul from an authentic lineage Baul sampradaya. Through Sadhana and through thousands of hours of recording Babukishan for the preservation of the Vaishnava Baul Sampradaya, thousands of hours listening to him sing and being told the stories 24/7 for an intensive 6 years. Babu has also tutored me in Shakti-Sadhana and all Indian Philosophy especially the authentic stories of the origins of Vaishnavism in Bengal, stories that have never been heard. Stories of the original and authentic the truth that has been covered up and distorted. 30 years of learning Yoga, Indian Philosophy, Vaishnavism, Jyotish, prepared me and provided a foundation to enter into this profound conversation with Babukishan.
