Kangana Ranaut .
Mumbai: Bollywood star Kangana Ranaut recently took off for an intense eight-day yoga camp in Coimbatore, which included eight days of silence and long hours of meditation. Few days after the camp, Kangana opens about the program ‘Samyama’, an intensive residential program, and how it has changed her.
Speaking on how she ended up attending the program, Kangana said, "When I first met Sadhguru after my initiation in US, he looked at me and said that I should do Samyama, and then I realized that it was like the Phd of Isha universe. But I was very happy with Shambhavi, the 21 minute Kriya which was a part of inner engineering program. It gave me back my exuberance and energy levels. And I told him I should take it slow, but he insisted that I should."
"So, I started taking advanced levels, and when I started Samyama, I was very scared. People attend this program after 5-6 years of Kadi Sadhana, but for me, it was just one year. And then suddenly, on 5th of 6th day, it just opened up. I am so grateful I did this. It’s difficult to explain the experience in words, but before this, Shiva for me was a dimension, and something I could mentally understand. But after Samayama, he has unleashed Shiva in me, he has become my breath. When I felt him for the first time, it took me back to my time as a kid I lost him, I could tell this was what was missing from me. I told my mother that I am home, I have found what I lost, and everything makes sense. Something so profound has happened to me, that no amount of success, money, awards, relationships have ever touched me like that."
On the professional front, Kangana recently announced that she will be working on Jayalalithaa biopic after she winds up work on Mental Hai Kya and Panga.
