What is Sanyas Yoga
Many of us have heard of these yogas as the name itself shows the nature of this yoga. This yoga is also known as Pravrajya yoga. The meaning of this yoga is if a person has this yoga, he will live like an ascetic.
I will tell you how yoga is going to work in one’s life.
Before that let me tell you, you can find this yoga in Chapter 27 of Pahaldipika mainly, but there are various other texts which say about this yoga.
I will write down certain conditions.
- When the 10th lord is conjuncting 4 planets and placed either in Kendra or Trikona, then such horoscope shows a strong condition for Sanyas yogaIf at the time of birth 4 or more planets are in the one house, that is a sanyas yoga
- If the moon is in Kendra with Saturn and aspected by Saturn and mars
- If the Moon sign lord is aspected by Saturn.
There are other conditions also, but these are the most prominent condition for Sanyas yoga.
In addition to that, I have if a person has three planets in one house also he will have a shadow of Sanyas yoga in his life.
In sanyas yoga, the person will have to go through a lack of marital pleasures. An ascetic is born to be spiritual and he is not destined to get a lot of materialistic pleasures like love, money or anything which is perishable. He is destined to focus on imperishable matters like God and soul.
If he is focusing on anything which is against his spiritual life will make his life directionless.
There are various kinds of Sanyas yoga which shows the life should be like a celibate.
Some so many people are married with sanyas yoga. Certain sanyas yoga do not deny marriage, but even in marriage, the person will be isolated from the spouse, it can be more physical distance than emotional connection. Lack of continuity in sexual pleasures is a signature of Sanyas yoga. For example, either of the spouses can live in a different location and meeting each other once in a while. Some people stay abroad and thus stay away from their spouses. That is a condition of Sanyas yoga.
If you are a corporate employee with sanyas yoga, then, you will have a recurrent disagreement with your teammates, as you are destined for spiritual life, but at corporate, you are working for a materialistic goal.
Isolation and detachment are the signatures of this yoga. A person with this yoga will surely feel an emptiness if they are following a life with parties and huge networking for the sake of pleasure.
People with sanyas yoga will get into back-to-back relationship issues as well.
Such people should actively take part in spiritual practices. Spirituality has no connection with going to a temple, or church, or mosque. Being spiritual means placing the spiritual principles in life and giving them the first place. Spending at least 10 minutes daily in prayer and meditation will help you to have a great focus in your life. Reading spiritual and philosophical texts also will give you a lot of guidance on what to do in such a life.
There will be a lot of confusion in life as multiple planets are in one house and they are putting a lot of influence in their ways. Finally, you will go clueless about which direction you need to go. If you are a person with this yoga, then there is no other way than to make spirituality your signature.
The different planet shows a different kind of Sanyas yoga and there are certain yogas among this which shows no marriage and a clear ascetism.
If you further want to learn the essence of this yoga, you just have to understand the life of Gautama Budha. His story will tell you about the mental conflict he went through and how he got rid of it.
