“I am more than just a physical being”

BY ARTI DAS | NT BUZZLife becomes simpler and easier when you find a path to self discovery. For actor, Nikita Anand this path is the Sanatan Kriya that she has been following for quite some time and believes that it is one of the best things that has happened to her
Actor and former Miss India, Nikita Anand is a content soul; much happier and calmer today. This is how she likes to define herself and this now active follower of Sanatan Kriya and Yog attributes all her success to her guru, Yogi Ashwini.
She is here in Goa to promote Yogi Ashwini’s book on anti-ageing titled, ‘Sanatan Kriya, The Ageless Dimension.’
Nikita has been religiously following Sanatan Kriya for the last six years and it all started for her when she realised that by working out in a gym she was actually stressing her body.
“There was a time when I used to work out every day and run 5 to 6 kilometres. But then I started developing lower back problems. That’s when I realised that I am not doing any good to myself and started doing asanas instead,” says Nikita sitting in the correct asana posture.
Now she considers herself healthy and is thinking beyond her body. When asked about the size zero which is being endorsed by some actors vis-à-vis some actors vouching for plump body, she adds, “I think one should able to think about oneself beyond their body. They are only thinking about their physical body and size zero or whatever is just a fed” opines Nikita who does not consider herself to be part of any race.
Nikita who practices Sanatan Kriya everyday claims that it is not like doing any asanas or some physical activity. It is more like meditation where you go on internalizing. She also endorsed of having a guide or a guru who can show you the path of achieving your inner strength. “It is very important to have a guru. It is all about connecting with your guru and there can’t be a flow of energy without a guru. There is much more to us than just a physical being. Like before I was not aware about blockage I am creating to my ‘prana’ and removing it with ‘Chakra Santulan’ or balancing the chakras of my body” explains Nikita.
She however didn’t elaborate about diet plans as she considers it that it all depends on individual to individual. “I eat what I like and do not like to starve myself” adds Nikita who recently turned vegetarian.
Yogi Ashwini on this point maintained that there is a tailor made diet plan for Nikita. “There are rasayanas and supplements which are individual based” states Ashwini.
Elaborating further about the point of ageing, Nikita maintained that our lifestyle is mainly responsible for it. “Nowadays we find most of the youth who are just 25 or so having grey hair. We are exposed to so many toxins, radiation etc. It is due to the fact that now we are moving away from nature and stressing ourselves unnecessarily. We need to conserve our energy like when we work out in a gym we lose our body fluids which you cannot replenish afterwards. So, this book gives an account of how we can work on ourselves and the Sanatan Kriya is the starting point of that” concludes Nikita.

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…


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 …


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…
