Super BrainYoga/ Thoppukaranam
It’s normal to forget things every now and then. We’ve all misplaced our keys, blanked on an acquaintance’s name, or forgotten a phone number we’ve dialed a hundred times before. When we’re young, we don’t tend to pay much mind to these lapses, but as we grow older, sometimes we worry about what they mean. Past two months I am suffering from memory loss while asked the doctor for reason He said Memory loss has multiple causes including a number of chronic medical and psychological conditions, trauma, medications, drug or alcohol abuse, and infections, Depression. or due to frustration. He asked me to do Super Brain Yoga a fast, simple, drug-free method of increasing mental energy”. While him explaining the procedure as I understand this is none other than THOPPUKARANAM.
Thoppukaranam is a traditional practice in Indian Schools, accepted from Gurukula system of education to make the child sit and stand catching both the ears with hands crossing each other symbolizing punishment for lethargy, laziness and not memorizing or grasping and to improve brain power etc. Most people do it in front of idol of Ganesha by crossing their arms and holding the ear lobes between the tips of the fore and middle finger; next they bend their knees and get up–doing this three times. This prayer is called thoppu karanam.
“Thorpi: Karnam ” is thoppukarnam in its corrupted form. Which word, is related to the Sanskrit “Dvau-bhuja-karnam”“Thorpi = means with the hands, and “Karnam” = means ears. Hence “Thorpikarnam” means holding the ears with the hands. Each and every performance followed by Hindu culture is backed by some scientific truth. Thoppukaranam’ activates the acupuncture points at right and left ears thereby activating the right and left brains. Fifteen minutes of ’Thoppukaranam’ increases the brain power immensely according to sources.The physical body is a very complicated subtle electronic equipment. When a proper energy wiring connection is made, it produces the right results.
The right ear lobe corresponds to the left brain.The left ear lobe corresponds to the right brain.
When the right ear lobe is gently squeezed with the left thumb and left index finger with the thumb outside, it produces the necessary energy connection. This connection causes the left brain and pituitary gland to become energized and activated. Similarly, when the left ear lobe is gently squeezed with the right thumb and right index finger with the thumb outside, it produces the necessary energy connection, which causes the right brain and pineal gland to become energized and activated. which causes the right brain and pineal gland to become energized and activated.For energizing and activating the Left Brain and the Right Brain, the left arm must be inside, while the right arm must be outside.
Superbrain Yoga not only energizes and activates the brain, but also assists in balancing the energies of the heart, throat, ajna, (center of the brain-eyebrow center )forehead and crown energy centers.( The Crown energy center (also called the spiritual heart) located on the top of the head is the entry point to higher spiritual consciousness.) Synchronizes the right and left side of the brain to improve function and promote calmness, energizing of cells and nervous system, sharper mind, focus, additional energy .This amazing yoga which you can do anywhere, anytime, any age. In my childhood daily I put Thoppu karanam in front of God. Later whenever knowingly or unknowingly If I done mistake I put 11 thoppukaranamas saying sorry to god.. Now for gaining memory I am doing as exercise.
