To acknowledge that our spirits shall rise to unite with God is the most beautiful gift of Samadhi. This is expressed through the gift of breathing.
The tongue holds the key to experiencing God. Energetically, the tongue has a direct connection to both the origins and endpoints of the energetic channels, from the hips to the inner brain, from the Muladhara chakra to the Sahasrara chakra.
Promoting compassion, goodwill, kindness and service bring out our highest spiritual potential, Sattva (Sattwa). This positive, calm and content predisposition, is inherent to all and could be practised even without the physicality of yoga.

Externally, Guhyasanas, resemble asanas (poses) but they go beyond. They defy many of the commonly accepted physical alignment principles. The body surrenders to the innate flow of the primal energy, the Kundalini.
The euphoria attached to Samadhi is beautiful. It is many times addicting too. The student knows his limitations so he could easily get out. Once or twice in this lifetime is enough. To chase it could lead to a painful downfall. He needs to come back so he could share this wondrous spiritual journey.
