Finding The Core

By YOGI ASHWINI



The universe is constantly expanding; modern scientists validate this fact. In the beginning, you were a part of that param shakti. But as time moves on, as a result of this expansion, you are drifting away from it. With every passing moment, you are moving away from the place you came from. You are constantly going away from your core, your truth.
This is evident if you take a look at the youth of today?weak eyesight, frail bodies, disease, lack of direction, addiction to machines and an artificial life. Just two or three generations ago, people had much stronger bodies. They did not take too many pills. Today, we have developed health supplements, we claim that quality of food has improved, various equipment and machines have been developed to keep one healthy, yet good health eludes us.
Before the British conquest of India, there existed a local cure for smallpox in India. Imperialists who wanted to promote their vaccinations suppressed the use of this local cure. As a result, few million children died of small pox. Recently, it was in news that the polio vaccine that is being administered on a mass scale in the country is causing paralysis in children. Despite all the advancements, people’s health is deteriorating and so is their condition. Which means the truth is moving away from us.
Rishi Markandeya told us that as time progresses, every new stage will be worse than the previous, and the specialty of the last phase of kaliyug will be that yog gurus will start selling yog and that will render it ineffective. Seeing them, others will also join in to sell it in the market under new names. Nobody would understand what is being sold or bought and yet it would be happening. And at that time the few who will be defending yog and vedas would be laughed at. It is these few who will become the rishis in the new yug.
The only way to carve your way back to the core is through practice of yog and Sanatan Kriya. Everything else is an unending cycle, taking you further away from the ultimate reality with every passing moment, rendering you weaker and older than before.

SHED YOUR COLONIAL MINDSET OVER COWS

The British punctured our roots, killed cows and poisoned our minds, and left behind generations of ‘brown Englishmen’, writes Yogi Ashwini Macaulay in his infamous ‘Minute’ in 1835 changed the course of how Bharat (or India as we call it now) would be perceived by its countrymen. He planned to uproot the Indian culture through English education. He advocated education for a selected class and wanted to create eminent clerks to serve the lower cadres in British administration, “Brown Englishmen”. The fact that most of us find it perfectly normal to address him, who ravaged our culture, as “Lord” Macaulay and find the idea of cow, which nourishes us, being our mother or goddess absurd, is a direct indicator of the fact that Macaulay succeeded in brainwashing us. A brainwash to the extent that no matter what we write here or whatever stats we share, the Brown Englishmen, even if they make it through the end of this article, would still not find anything wrong in killing cows or eating bee…

YOGA FOR KIDNEY STONES

There are two bean shaped organs in the body, one to the left and the other to the right in the pelvic region, and their function is filtration of the fluids of the body. The residue after filtration is then expelled from the body as urine. I am referring to the kidneys. Kidneys assume greater significance in our lives, given that are body is 60-70% water. And this water needs to be regulated constantly.
The kidneys are so fine an organ that they remove all the solids from the water. Certain solids which are heavy and cannot be expelled completely, get calcified. This leads to kidney stones. When the kidney stones grow in size, they block the top of the kidney or are pushed into the urethra thereby blocking it. Early symptoms are pain. And this pain need not be limited to the lower back area, and may even be experienced in the lower chest area.  This is because when the kidneys gasp for prana, they can put pressure on any nerve in the body. Another symptom is weight gain. When kidneys …

OVERCOME OBSTACLES TO MEET SHIVA

Mata Parvati was the daughter of a great king. When she chose to marry Lord Shiva, her parents objected and ridiculed her decision. They asked her why she would want to stay at Mount Kailash where there is nothing but snow, instead of marrying a man owning a huge kingdom and a palace. To this, she replied that all of these are temporary.
When her parents didn’t believe her, she gave them a glimpse of their future. They were shocked to see that their lavish palace was nowhere to be seen, it didn’t exist. That is when they understood what their daughter was saying. That is when they got the gyan.

Everything that is a part of the physical world—the body, property, relatives, friends and riches—is unreal and will
leave us one day. It is only when you are able to access Shiva that this gyan flows and you get the darshan of what is real.
The path leading to Shiva, however, is not easy. Sadhaks, who choose to tread this path, need to possess traits like Shiva—tapasya, vairagya (deta…
