"Once you empty yourself, Devi has no choice but to be with you. And if Devi is with you, I also have no choice." - Sadhguru

Bhairavi Sadhana is an opportunity to bring forth devotion from within.

The sadhana starts during early Uttarayana, when the sun’s run shifts to the northern hemisphere, a time conducive for spiritual receptivity.

Initiation is on the same day for both ladies and gents. However, for ladies, the sadhana culminates on Thaipusam (the full moon day in the lunar month of Thai) and for gents on Thai Amavasya (the new moon day in the lunar month of Thai).

Culmination for Ladies: 18 Jan 2022

Culmination for Gents: 31 Jan 2022

Please refer to the recipe recommended below:

HOMEMADE HERBAL POWDER

For Body - Recipe 1

Spread 1 cup of dry mung beans on a tray (or moong dal with the skin) and sunbake them in direct sunlight for a day, or put in a low temp oven (200 degrees) for 30-40 mins. Let the beans cool and then put the dried beans into a food processor and add 1/4 cup white rice. Grind the beans and rice together in the food processor into a fine powder. (Use a sieve to remove any coarser pieces as necessary.) Mix 2 tsp. of turmeric into the powder and store in a sealed container. This powder can be kept for months if stored in a cool dry place.

To take a herbal bath: Mix 1-2 Tbsp of fine powder with a little water to make a thin paste. Rub the paste into your skin and let it air-dry for a couple of minutes before rinsing.

For Body - Recipe 2

First, Make a powder mixture base:

Green gram (Whole Moong/Moong Daal) powder and Chickpea flour (Besan) are very good bathing powders. Mix both and your powder mixture base is ready. Even if just one of these ingredients is available, it is okay️.

Upon availability and preferences, you can add any or all of these ingredients in your powder mixture base.

For 1 cup of Moong+Besan powder mixture base you can optionally add:

  • 1 tsp organic Turmeric powder/Haldi
  • 1 tbsp Rice flour
  • 1 tbsp Amala
  • 1 tbsp Tulsi powder
  • 1 tbsp Neem powder
  • 1 tbsp dry lemon or orange peel powder

Adding these ingredients isn’t mandatory but is beneficial if included.

Mix all of the added ingredients together and put them in an airtight container.

Before bathing, take two tablespoons of the mixture and mix it with water. Make sure there are no lumps.

You can take a bath right away, there is no need to soak the mixture for long.

For Hair - Recipe 1

Ritha, Amala and Shikakai are considered to be the best combination for hair cleansing and nourishment and have been in practice since long by our ancestors.

Traditionally, they are cooked together in an iron utensil and kept overnight to apply on the next day.

Since the cooked mixture has a short shelf life and the preparation process might not be practical in most of our daily lives, we can buy them in powder form and soak them in water before applying.

For best results take the required amount and soak an hour before or overnight. Make sure the paste is thick enough so that it doesn’t flow away easily.

Dampen your hair, apply the mixture gently and wash thoroughly. There is no need to let it rest for a longer period of time.
