YOGA FOR DIABETES-PART 2

In the previous article we understood how and why a disease manifests in the body and how one can cure it. The Arurvedic remedy for diabetes was detailed, that needs to be taken every day along with certain yogic asans that will help control the rising sugar levels in the body. A combination of Ayurveda, Asans and Mantra chanting will have an immediate effect on controlling diabetes.

ASAN

It is important that the breath rate and heart rate do not shoot up while performing asans. But since these are repetitive asans, there is a possibility of a slight increase in the breath rate while performing them. Therefore it is vital to perform them in tandem with Sanatan Kriya to balance out or decrease the number of breaths taken overall. It is advised you learn the practices at a Dhyan Foundation centre near you.



·        VEERBHADRA ASAN – Stand straight. As you inhale, slowly bend forward keeping your spine straight. Touch both hands on the ground and raise your left leg up so it remains parallel to the ground as you balance the body on the right leg. Gently exhale and bring the leg down. Repeat this 7 times.

·        NATRAJ ASAN – Inhaling, bend your left knee backwards and lift the left leg behind you and raise your right arm up while you look upwards. Support the left ankle with left hand. As you exhale bring your hand and foot down. Repeat 7 times.

·        UDYAN & JALANDHAR BANDH – Stand straight, inhale and expand your stomach as much as possible, then exhale from your mouth emptying the stomach and the lungs as much as possible. The area below the rib cage has to be pulled inwards but only enough so it does not cause any discomfort or trauma. Do a chin lock, Jalandhar Bandh, your chin touching the chest as you look down. Exhale while the abdomen is pulled inside. Gradually release the abdominal lock then the chin lock.

Caution – Kapal Bhati pranayam should be avoided completely as it causes hyperactivity and is not advised for diabetes.

MANTRA TO STRENGTHEN THE MANIPOORAK

Along with the asans it’s important to strengthen the Manipoorak chakra (navel), as diabetes is caused due to an imbalance in the Manipoorak chakra.

The Beej mantra of Manipoorak chakra is RAM. Sit in Sukhasan or Vajrasan. Place both palms on the navel, one on top of the other, and chant ram. To hear the correct uccharan of the mantra, visit www.dhyanfoundation.com. This mantra activates the Manipoorak chakra.

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…

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…

OVERCOME OBSTACLES TO MEET SHIVA

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…
