Supar Brain Yoga Is Indian “Thorpikarnam”

I want to share this article which my friend and sister Dr.Padmini Sharma sent me as a mail attachment. Do take a look at the video and read the article.

When I first saw it I laughed. It was like a punishment kids used to get in schools for not doing their homework or learning their lessons. Maybe the idea was to sharpen their mind. Choa’s Super brain yoga, or “Thoppukaranam”, the reverential practice done by Hindus in front of Lord Ganesha’s temple. A simple devotional action. This practice has been there in India since ages but it is a new discovery by the Americans which has now swept over the world. One feels sad that many of our traditions are being copyrighted by the western world, and the latest is “Thoppukaranam” being copyrighted as “Super Brain Yoga”.

“Thorpi: Karnam ” is thoppukarnam in its corrupted form.

“Thorpi = means with the hands, and “Karnam” = means ears. Hence “Thorpikarnam” means holding the ears with the hands.

Hiduism has always been a scitific religion and many of its religious postures are part of the yogic exercises. Over the last few years, awareness of Indian Culture and the depth of our academic achievements is being recognised. Our knowledge and achievements are far superior than those of any other nation in the worldbut somehow we are not able to imbibe it in your daily life. We do it only only when it comes covered it the western high profile glam covering.

What a shame ..

It is high time that we research the various ancient practices and got a patent for them before the west steals them and brands them as their own.

The technique however has helped me tremendously and now even my teenage boys have started doing it five min. in the morning and five min in the evening. It has helped me to calm down and breath easy.

Here is the copy of the original article for all my readers.


Dr. Paul Nogier MD, a neurologist, spent 20 years from 1950 to about 1970 doing medical research. He rediscovered that the ears correspond to the whole body. The ear corresponds to an inverted fetus curled in the womb. The ear lobe corresponds to the head [ref: Nogier, Dr. Paul M. F., Handbook to Auriculotherapy, (France, 1981)]. The correspondence of the ear to the whole body was already recognized by the ancient Chinese acupuncturists and also to the great rishis (teachers) in India, who developed a technique to increase people’s intelligence. Now we know it worked because it was based on the principle of ear acupuncture.


Clairvoyants, with the use of their psychic faculties, have observed that the physical body is surrounded and interpenetrated by a luminous energy body, which resembles the visible physical body. Clairvoyants call this the etheric double or etheric body. The “energy body” as they called it was first photographed by Russian scientists Semyon Davidovich Kirlian and his wife in 1939. With the aid of Kirlian photography, they observed, studied and photographed small bioplasmic articles* like the “light” or bioplasmic energy of the fingers, leaves, etc. It is through this energy body that prana or vital life energy is absorbed and distributed throughout the whole physical body [ref: Master Choa Kok Sui, Miracles Through Pranic Healing, (Phil, 1987), 5]

Prana or ki is the life energy which nourishes the whole physical body. The visible physical body is molded after the energy body. They are so closely related that what affects one affects the other. Without life energy, the body will die. If the energy body is depleted or congested, the physical body gets sick. When the physical body is healed, the corresponding energy body also gets healed. This may manifest gradually or may happen almost instantaneously if there are no interfering factors. The energy body, through energy centers (also known as chakras) , controls and is responsible for the proper functioning of the whole physical body including its different organs and parts.

Major energy centers are actually major acupuncture points. Energy centers are very important parts of the energy body.

Based on the research of Dr. Joie P. Jones, Dept. of Radiological Sciences, University of California in Irvine, California: The acupuncture points are made up of 2 parts: an upper part and a lower part. These 2 parts are constantly moving in opposite directions. When the upper part is moving clockwise, the lower part is moving counter clockwise. This motion alternates from clockwise to counter clockwise.

Dr. Jones calls this the “twisting motion” of the acupuncture point. The major acupuncture points in the Indian tradition are called chakras, which means whirling energy centers.

The major energy centers or chakras are just like power stations that supply life energy to major and vital organs of the visible physical body. They are responsible for the proper functioning of the whole physical body as well as its different parts and organs.

A lot of ailments are caused partially by the malfunctioning of the energy centers. Some energy centers are sites or centers for psychic faculties. When activation of certain energy centers occurs, they can even result in the development of certain psychic faculties.

The energy centers may be understood more easily as energy transformers. When energies from the lower energy centers move upward into the higher energy centers, they are transformed into other forms of energies of a much higher frequency. When higher forms of energies from the upper energy centers move down into the lower energy centers, they are transformed into other forms of energies with a much lower frequency.


The Superbrain Yoga technique is described in the book. The complete procedure must be practiced as described in the book in order to experience the benefits. This section describes how the energy connections can be produced to energize the brain.

The physical body is a very complicated subtle electronic equipment. When a proper energy wiring connection is made, it produces the right results. When the connection is wrong, expected results are not achieved.

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.

For energizing and activating the Left Brain and the Right Brain, the left arm must be inside, while the right arm must be outside.

The correct arm position is important for energizing and activating the brain.


Superbrain Yoga® transforms or internally alchemizes the energies from the lower energy centers into higher subtler energies. These energies are then utilized by the upper energy centers. When those centers are highly energized, they energize the brain so it can function with greater efficiency and effectivity.

Superbrain Yoga® not only energizes and activates the brain, but also assists in balancing the energies of the heart, throat, ajna, forehead and crown energy centers. (For detailed information on the 11 major energy centers, their location and function please refer to “Miracles Through Pranic Healing” by the same author)

When energies from the basic energy center and sex energy center move up to the heart energy center, they are transformed into inner peace. When the energies go up to the throat energy center and the ajna energy center, they are transformed into greater intelligence and creativity. When they go up to the forehead energy center and crown energy center, they are transformed into a higher degree of spirituality. The lower energies are transformed into subtle energy, which is utilized by the brain to enhance its proper functioning.

This is why some people have experienced stress reduction by practicing the Superbrain Yoga®

Other benefits noted from the practice of Superbrain Yoga® include greater psychological stability and an ability to regulate the sex drive. This is especially helpful for teenagers. Prolonged practice of the Superbrain Yoga® can make the practitioner, in general, smarter and more psychologically balanced.

There are multiple factors that may affect the results of the practice of Superbrain Yoga®. For example:

* Facing the correct direction
* Positioning the arms properly
* Positioning the fingers properly
* Breathing correctly

Results cannot be predicted if these and other procedures given in the book are not strictly followed.

The effect of Superbrain Yoga on people with severe ailments such as cancer, sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s), severe heart conditions, is unknown. Any form of physical exercises should not be undertaken without first consulting a medical doctor.
