BEING HUMAN


Acclaimed speaker and Yoga master, Yogi Ashwini is in the city to address the people on vedic sciences. He is the guiding light at Dhyan Foundation, a spiritual and charitable organisation which conducts free yoga classes all over the world. When asked about his trip to the city of Nizams he said, “The bottomline is that Hyderabad has certain people who practice serious advanced Yoga. There are people who have been benefited with the practice and I will meet them today.”
Under the guidance of Yogi, the organisation is involved in innumerable charitable activities including running free schools for the underprivileged, vocational training centres for women, feeding dogs daily, running animal shelters, feeding thousands of animals daily, feeding thousands of poor people daily and many more.
Yogi Ashwini believes that the world has become selfish and no one thinks about others. “Selfishness congests you from inside. When you are disturbed from inside, an imbalance is created in your body and you fall prey for diseases,”says Yogi.
When asked about the solution for this problem he pointed out, “Sanatan Kriya is the solution for this. It stills you from inside. It gives one the much needed peace of mind which removes all the disturbances. You are at bliss once you practice this.”
He further added, “The main problem is that we think only about ourselves and our family. Then when we fall sick we go to dietitians and following their steps we again fall sick of something else.” Emphasising on the wellness part in the society, Yogi said, “People should eat everything but at the end of the day do right things follow right practices.”

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 …

KALKI THE EXTINGUISHER OF EVIL: A GLIMPSE OF THE FINAL INCARNATION

“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 …

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…
