Dhyan Foundation fighting to save neglected animals in India

What goes around, comes around
Recently 50 dogs were poisoned and burnt alive in Keezhampur village of Kancheepuram, in Tamilnadu. Charred carcases were found in the village, spreading the stench across the village. Many crows, birds and cats died later due to feeding on these poisoned carcases. The atrocities on animals are increasing manifold in all possible ways.
Some people feel that killing animals is not a sin since they don’t have souls. The reason behind this vague belief is that the weight of animals remains same before and after death whereas there is always a difference in the weight of a person before and after the soul departs. People consider it as weight of the soul, but it is the weight of karma.
To this effect in 1901, an experiment was conducted in Massachusetts by Dr. Duncan MacDougall over six dying patients who were placed on specially made weight scales just prior to their deaths. His intention was to weigh each body before and after death to determine any differences measured by the delicate scales.
The patients were selected based upon their imminent death. Once the patient died, a sudden loss of three-fourths of an ounce was noted. Everything was taken into account, from the air in the lungs to bodily fluids, yet they were unable to explain the reason behind the sudden weight loss. They concluded it is the weight of soul…but soul has no weight, it is in fact the weight of karma which we carry forward lifetime after lifetime.
The weight in animals remains same even after death because they are not bound by karma amd their progression is natural. We must remember that humans progress or regress depending upon their karmas. If we don’t become the voice of these voiceless animals, hurting or harming them then we are proceeding towards hell where we would also have to undergo similar kind of pains.
In the Mahabharata, after the Kurukshetra war, Dhritrarashtra asked Krishna the reason why all of his hundred sons got killed in the war. To which Krishna replied that fifty lifetimes ago, he was a hunter. While hunting, he tried to shoot a male bird, but it flew away. In anger, he ruthlessly slaughtered the hundred baby birds that were there in the nest.
The father-bird had to watch in helpless agony. Simply because he caused that father-bird the pain of seeing the death of his hundreds sons, he too had to bear the pain of his hundred sons dying.
Yogi Ashwini says that ‘Law of karma is universal. It bounces back’.

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…
