The Great Secret

Accessing your Guru means, you think of something and your Guru does it for you. No matter what that is. A Guru is ready to do anything for the shishya, but you need to have that connection, dedication and attraction that he cannot refuse you, even if it is something as frivolous as guarding your body. There are only two ways to access your Guru, bhakti – that nothing else exists for you or shakti – if you tie your Guru with shakti, he will get tied. You need to decide which category you fall in and then walk just that path.
But whatever you get, whether it is Guru’s shakti or bhakti, you will try to put it on display and show others how much ability you have. That is the time to exercise control and focus on just your path, otherwise you will get carried away. The shakti of bhakti and your own shakti, both are there only to light up the path for you, so that you pick up some speed and instead of 5 seconds you reach in one second. The path is just one.
People tell me they want to do yog but when I ask them if they are following the five yamas, they start looking here and there. You are at A and you have to reach B, the path is very small, all you need is to access your Guru. You can go straight and reach in five seconds or you can take zigzag routes of curing illness, mending relationships, to learn and understand, etc - for even a hundred years and still not make it. And you will take birth again on the route you had left and again keep wandering and again you will not reach your destination. I never asked for solutions from my teachers or my Guru, I never judged them, nor assessed them. I simply tried to access them completely in every aspect that they taught me. I know what I want and I want it completely, not even partially, because I just want that, nothing else. Unless you have this intensity, you will just keep going in circles searching for solution to your problems.
All your problems, big or small, are a result of your karmas. Your Guru has the capacity to remove those problems, but then you are taking your Guru as a means to solve your physical problems and wasting the phenomenal force that you have access to.

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…
