TIME TO PROTECT ANIMALS

"Recently, monkeys have been declared as ‘vermin’ in the city of Shimla, allowing for their culling. These monkeys harass people and destroy agricultural produce, reason out the policy makers. The above is a clear indicator of the rise of asuric vritti among humans that has limited their thinking to the self-destructing philosophy of I-me-myself. Their buddhi is polluted and they cannot think of benefit of creation.
An animal needs food and shelter. Declaring monkey as vermin is an example of anti-humanity as it is the land mafia that has usurped their forests by breaking every law possible and it is them who are instigating the policies to kill them so that their lands can be taken over. It is this mafia that is vermin, not the monkeys." Yogi Ashwini



There are two aspects to creation—the positive (sur) and negative (asur). The surs are responsible for protection and preservation of creation, asurs engage in its destruction. So, the ones who are feeding the poor, saving animals, protecting environment would be termed as surs. And the ones who kill animals, destroy forests, and abuse fellow beings would fall in the category of asurs.
The surs and asurs can be found across religions, communities, geographies and ages, and the battle between them has ensued since time immemorial.
Agastya Muni had prophesied around seven thousand years ago, when he caused the asurs to go underground upon request of devtas, ‘after Mahabharat, Kaliyug will start and then these asurs will resurface on earth and create chaos’.
If you look around, his prophecy is coming true. Crime against humans and animals is at its peak and our environment and resources are fast deteriorating.

An animal that is happy if it gets its food and its children are safe, cannot be killed because humans have taken over its habitats and food sources. The world over, the animals are protected. Forests are conserved and a reserve area is demarcated where these animals are provided for. If only they come out of that area are they ordered to be killed. Nowhere is such blatant killing of animals ratified. This is the asuric vritti at play.
Let’s not forget, it was monkeys who helped Lord Ram in his battle against the asurs. Killing them would be equivalent to siding with the asurs and the fate would be similar to what was meted out to the asurs in treta yug.
Killing animals unleash great pain in the planet and breaks the ecological chain. The results would be disastrous karmically and on the area where this pain would be unleashed, they might retaliate by killing humans in revenge.
This would unleash chaos and have a devastating effect on tourism and India’s image the world over.

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…
