Who are “You”?
By Yogi Ashwini
Every person, each one of you has a corresponding star, from where you have come and where you return to after every birth. Each star is a specific divine energy. What you are is a reflection of that unique star. That is why earlier it was said that when a person dies s/he becomes a star. We have more stars in the creation than our population. So then what are we and where are we? Are we here or are we there? The answer is- we are neither here nor there but there and here simultaneously. How?
The sloka Om poornamadah poornamidam poornata poornamudachyate poornasya poornamaadaya poornamevava shishyate Om implies that infinity plus infinity is infinity, infinity minus infinity is infinity, infinity multiplied by infinity is infinity and infinity divided by infinity is also infinity. But infinity has no definition or does it? If two mirrors are kept facing each other and you stand in between the two, then would you be able to count the number of images? No that is infinity. That is why the star, the creation, is called infinity, everything has originated from it and will go back into it and it has no boundaries. Can you explain something which has no boundaries, something which has no limits?
Have you thought about this- What is there beyond the boundaries we know? Afterall there has to be a limit to what has been created. This creation should end somewhere. Everything that is created or manifested is limited and so it should have boundaries. We can see the sky and we know after that there is the space. So till where does space exist? How can it be infinite if whatever is created is finite and is always defined by boundaries? Just think about this, you do not even know the basics of your existence - where you are and till where that extends, who you are or why you are where you are. But what you do know with certainty is how big your house is, what car you own and what you would like to have in dinner tonight! This is all you know of!

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 …


“Whenever and wherever there is a decline in righteousness, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of vice – at that time I descend Myself. In order to deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to re-establish the principles of dharma, I advent Myself epoch after epoch” Since the beginning, Lord Vishnu incarnated in various forms on earth from time to time. Whenever there was a disbalance in Creation, it was ensured that the avatars worked on rectifying it. The avatar was bespoke of the yuga as the yugas needed to change with time. He took birth as a Brahmin (Parshurama) to annihilate the corrupt Kshatriyas, as a prince(Rama) to slay the demon king of Lanka and as a cowherd(Krishna) who executed the cunning Kansa and steered the Pandavas to victory. Lord Vishnu is said to have ten avatars (dashavatars) in the present cycle of four yugas. Now, being the Kalyug, is the time when the tenth and the final avatar of Lord Vishnu will take birth on Earth. If we …


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…
