“Balancing” or “even essence,” represents an important concept that inspires the Hatha Yoga practice in Hridaya Yoga. It was a very important notion in the Siddha Yoga movement in Southern India (800-1200 A.D.), especially in regards to Hatha Yoga. Sama rasa is the condition in which the physical body expresses divine perfection—it the process of opening towards Shiva and divine energy at the level of the physical body. Better said, it is an awareness of the divine nature of the physical body. Sama rasa reveals the union with Shiva Consciousness, a state in which all differentiation has disappeared. It stands for the process and state of resonating bodily in harmony with the Divine.
