  1. What is the best method of transmutation for semen retention?

    There are some techniques in this book: Practice of Brahmacharya - Sri Swami Sivananda " Do not overload your stomach at night. The night meals should be very light. Half a litre of milk or some fruits will constitute a good regimen or menu at night. " " A sexual act shatters the nervous system. The whole nervous system is shaken or agitated during the act. There is excessive loss of energy. More energy is wasted during coition. But it is not so when emission occurs during the dreaming state. In a wet dream, it may be the outflow of the prostatic juice only. Even if there is loss of the vital fluid, there is not much draining. The actual essence does not come out during wet dreams. It is only the watery prostatic juice with a little semen that is discharged during nocturnal pollutions. When nocturnal emission takes place, the mind which was working in the inner astral body suddenly enters the physical body vehemently in an agitated condition. That is the reason why emission takes place suddenly. "
  2. Breath Retention and "Shock" Effect

    @Trunk Hey good video. What does he say here at 15:54? "I'm going to bring the hands down to ______." And then, as his hands are lowered, are they touching the torso/abdomen, or simply resting on the legs/feet?
  3. Tapping the meridians of the body

    Your attitude is bad.
  4. Breath Retention and "Shock" Effect

    Thanks for the tips. So would you say that you hold the retained breath in the chest or the stomach? Because I feel like I can take a big breath, close the glottis, and then either push my belly out or keep it in the chest. If I keep it retained around my chest, my heart will become very active (sometimes uncomfortably) If I keep it retained around my stomach, my navel area will be active and warm. Thoughts?
  5. Breath Retention and "Shock" Effect

    If I'm absorbed, then I've no idea what I'm absorbed with, because there's no sense of "I" -- well this description almost sounds good, but no, no, it's likely the former - just getting knocked out from too much breathing. Carry on folks, no samadhi as of yet.
  6. Pranayama and breath holding

    As far as penis tips are concerned: During meditation, when I focused around my ajna chakra, a sexual feeling started and a mild arousal began. As I focused more on the pleasurable feeling in the ajna, it was connected to the tip of the penis. As I narrowed on in this penis-tip point, I had my first self-induced non-contact non-ejaculatory mind-orgasm. So there is *something* related to that point, yes. Though how exactly it relates kundalini in the perenium, I don't know.
  7. Breath Retention and "Shock" Effect

    bhastrika followed by antara kumbhaka results in a pressurized building of energy, then a powerful "surge" wherein I occasionally lose my senses for a bit (2-6 seconds) When I come to, I'm slowly involuntarily exhaling while my whole body is buzzing. It's slightly uncomfortable. The more breath I take in prior, the more likely the surge is to happen.

  9. Spinal breathing circuit blockage

    Anyone else?
  10. Spinal breathing circuit blockage

    Sorry. I will do better next time. Thank you for correcting me.
  11. Spinal breathing circuit blockage

    In which way? Breathing up the back of the spine and down the front of the body? You want to know which scriptures refer to this breathing practice? Can you please gather and compile for me all scriptures *specifically* related to explanation of techniques (breathing, breath-retention, energy-channels, bodily areas to focus on, etc.), and I will read them.
  12. Spinal breathing circuit blockage

    So this practice of breathing up the back of the spine, and down the front of the body, whether it's learned from kriya yoga or mantak chia's microcosmic orbit, either way, it's difficult for me to feel anything below the navel. There's usually a pain around the navel if that's relevant. Even on the backside, it's a bit fuzzy from the perenium to the heart, but the heart and above seems to be solid. This image illustrates.
  13. Hello

    Howdy. I know little about Daoism. Maybe I'll learn something. Hey, I wanted to ask a question about my meditation practice experience and get some advice. Which subforum is the best place for that?
