Now, more than 10 years later, I realize that "contacting Uranus" is not a bad metaphor for what the spiritual master was really telling me to do.
Though it might seem to be a simple physical movement, contracting your anus with awareness can be the first step on a trip toward contacting your cosmic identity. Have you ever heard the instruction "Apply mula bandha" or "Apply the locks" in a yoga class? Did you suspect that most of the students—perhaps including you—didn't have the foggiest idea how they should go about this? Often a teacher mentions mula bandha but never really explains what it means or how to do it.
In Sanskrit , "mula" means root; "bandha" means a lock or binding. Not only physically but also in more subtle ways, mula bandha is a technique for containing and channeling the energy associated with the mula-dhara "root place" chakra.
Located at the tip of the spine, muladhara chakra represents the stage of consciousness where basic survival needs dominate. As we begin to refine our thoughts—restricting and binding the intentions behind our actions—the actions themselves become refined.
In yoga practice we bind our body and mind, restricting our impulses into the orderly channels of ethics, individual responsibility, and right action. It's possible that teachers shy away from explaining mula bandha because they find talking about the anatomy of the pelvic floor embarrassing.
But the advantages to a full understanding of mula bandha far outweigh any embarrassment suffered. The reason one practices yoga is to have experiences which transcend the banal, and the bandhas—along with asanas, kriyas purifying actions , laya meditative absorption , yamas ethical restraints , and dharana concentration —are yogic techniques that can lead to transcendence.
Mula bandha is said to cut through brahma granthi , the energetic knot of our resistance to change, which lies in mula-dhara chakra. On the physical level, practicing mula bandha creates attentiveness in the supportive musculature of the pelvis.
This increases the stability of the pelvis, and, since the pelvis is the seat of the spine, its stability creates a safe environment for spinal movement.
Thus, mula bandha strengthens—and teaches the importance of—the solid foundation that should underlie any movement. Mula bandha also lifts and compresses the bowel and lower abdominal region. This creates a solid foundation, a platform under the breath that makes it possible to increase or decrease the pressure inside the torso and facilitate movement. The bandha creates lightness and fluidity; when it is properly applied, the body is less earth-bound and more mobile.
Through gradual refinement, mula bandha becomes less muscular and more subtle, energetic, and etheric. This movement from outside to inside, from mundane to rarefied, from unconsciousness to enlightenment, is the basic pattern of transcendental yogic awakening. On an energetic level, mula bandha allows us to feel, restrain, and then direct our energies toward enlightenment. Finally, when practicing mula bandha on the highest level, the yogi sees the Divine in all with equanimity and detachment.
On a physical level, mula bandha consists of a contraction, a muscular lifting-up in the floor of the pelvis. Although the pelvis itself is primarily a bony structure supported with ligaments, the pelvic floor consists of muscle fibers and fascia connective tissue. These tissues intersect and overlap in complex ways; for our purposes, we can divide the pelvic floor into three muscular levels, each of which can be sensed and moved separately. The most superficial physical level of mula bandha corresponds to the "contract your anus" instruction.
