Shatkarma - knowing it's meaning and significance

Arpita A.
24 Jan 0 0

Maharishi Gherand has described the six Shatkarmas as the first part of Yoga in the "Gheranda Samhita". He believes that without the practice of Shatkarma, no seeker can achieve success in the path of yoga.

The word "Shatkarma" is derived from the combination of these two words "Shat" and "Karma".

Here "Shat" means "six (6)" and "Karma" means "action". Thus Shatkarma refers to "the six special actions" by which the body is purified.

In Hatha Yoga, these six types of purification activities are called Shatkarmas.Without the cleansing of the body, it is difficult for the seeker to move forward in following the other steps of yoga.

Practicing the Shatkarmas not only results in physical purification but also mental and spiritual purification. Thus we can easily move forward on the spiritual path.
