It is a scary experience. The first reaction of the passengers usually is to grab their seats tight, some of them fasten their seat belts and some even put on the oxygen mask. But then, would it prevent the plane from crashing? Or would it save them in the event the plane crashes? No.
You have boarded the plane and are now moving with the energy of it. The control over the plane is not in your hands, you are a mere passenger.
No matter what your social status, how many assets and wealth you possess or how good you look, you cannot save the body or the physical assets.
What should you do then, when you realise the plane is crashing? People tell me, will you pray for it not to crash? Maybe your prayers get answered and the plane does not crash that once. But then, how many times and for how long may this work?
The physical is temporary, it is bound to go. There is no one I know, who had been able to hold onto anything they collected. The plane has to crash some day. You, however, need not crash... yoga, under a guru, is the path to that.
The reason you panic is because you are body-conscious and because of the impressions of past experiences of the deaths in your previous births, which flash before your eyes as the plane crashes. It is the fear of what awaits on the other side of life, the pain and trauma you will have to go through, to pay back for all that you did while you were on the plane.
Plane crash does not literally mean a plane crash. It is indicative of death which is around the corner.
You need not wait for the plane to crash to know where you are headed. There are specific kriyas in Sanatan Kriya through which you can get the experience beforehand.
A student of mine reported seeing people burning in boiling oil, and people with strange looking insects all over them… and this is just the beginning for those who spend their entire life living for the self (which they understand as the body), turning their face away from the pain and misery of fellow beings and creation at large.
You either move up in creation or you move down, you can never be stationary. This applies to all aspects of life—health, finances, relationships and even spiritual evolution.
Even if today you have all that you desire, it won’t last for long. Yet, you keep chasing it because your consciousness is limited to the body and the five senses.
You neither know nor have experienced the realms beyond, which exist (sadhaks in Dhyan Ashram are living testimony to the fact) and it is these realms that control and govern the physical body.
When you take the body to be the finality, you panic in a crashing plane. If, at that time, you take your awareness to the sushumna nadi and focus on Shiv at the agya, you will not die; you will merge back into the source.

Why is vedic civilisation the most advanced civilisation across time?

Vedic civilisation is perhaps the most advanced civilisation across times.
Vedic civilisation is perhaps the most advanced civilisation across times. The kind of knowledge and understanding of various aspects of creation that was possessed by the Vedic seers and is documented at length in ancient texts is unmatched till date. While the rest of the world was inhabited by barbarians as per modern historians, Vedic masters were dispelling the gyan of shanti (peace), preservation and protection of nature and its resources, compassion to animals and envisioning universes and galaxies far and beyond. One such phenomenal Vedic master was Sushruta who taught the world the art of surgery, long before the advent of modern medicine.
Around 600 BC in Kashi, known as Varanasi today, there lived an old man. No one knew of his past or birth or whereabouts, he just seemed to have come from nowhere. Rumours had it that he was the disciple of Dhanwantari, the physician of the gods and perhaps he descen…


Mata Parvati was the daughter of a great king. When she chose to marry Lord Shiva, her parents objected and ridiculed her decision. They asked her why she would want to stay at Mount Kailash where there is nothing but snow, instead of marrying a man owning a huge kingdom and a palace. To this, she replied that all of these are temporary.
When her parents didn’t believe her, she gave them a glimpse of their future. They were shocked to see that their lavish palace was nowhere to be seen, it didn’t exist. That is when they understood what their daughter was saying. That is when they got the gyan.

Everything that is a part of the physical world—the body, property, relatives, friends and riches—is unreal and will
leave us one day. It is only when you are able to access Shiva that this gyan flows and you get the darshan of what is real.
The path leading to Shiva, however, is not easy. Sadhaks, who choose to tread this path, need to possess traits like Shiva—tapasya, vairagya (deta…


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…
