BEATING ANXIETY AND STRESS......THE VEDIC WAY

Image result for stress 
Have you wondered why we like being with some people and why we want to stay away from some? 

The reason is simple, anyone who is calm and at peace, or shant creates a serenity around and people feel good in such a person’s company and those who are disturbed, stressed , anxious or ashant create the same disturbance around them thereby giving signals to people to stay away.The difference is the difference in positive and negative vibrations.  

The frequency of the waves that a person radiates directly affect his immediate environment, and the Creation at large and as an equal and opposite reaction the state of the person also gets affected by his/her immediate environment. Thus, a person who is troubled, stressed, anxious would spread disturbances into his surroundings, and as its effect he would in turn get more and more disturbed; a vicious circle… and all this would have a chaotic and cumulative effect on the whole environment.  

The above clearly tells us as to why the present state of the world is what it is today. We, the selfish beings of today cannot think beyond ourselves and just want peace for the self, failing to understand that if there is disturbance around us how can we ever be peaceful!  


But our Vedic rishis had realised that being at peace is possible only if there is peace all around us. They showed us the way to have complete peace, complete shanti, which is not just being at peace with ourselves but to have peace all round ­they gave us the beautiful Shanti path. When you are chanting this mantra you are praying that — first there should be peace in the universe, then our mother earth, then the plant kingdom should be at peace, the herbs and medicines should be at peace, the gods around, and Lord Brahma should be at peace. We should be at peace like all of them. There should be shanti all around.  

You can also experience the power of shanti or peace even in this day and age through the Sanatan Kriya and Vedic Havans.
  Here I am giving a simple technique from Sanatan Kriya.
  •          Sit in a comfortable position preferably cross legged on the floor.
  •          Closing your eyes pay reverence to your Guru.
  •       Gently inhale and exhale such that your breathing takes on a soft rhythmic   movement.
  •         Then take your awareness to your Anahad chakra (the chest region).       Become aware of the entire Creation in front of you. Feel one with the whole Creation and then chant the Shanti path. (for correct uccharan of this mantra visit www.dhyanfoundation.com
  •           You can repeat this mantra seven times.
  •        When you get up (make sure you get up very slowly after paying reverence  to your Guru) you will carry the peaceful vibrations not only inside you but also around you.
  
         VEDIC HAVAN
         
            Vedic havans, which are routinely conducted by sadhaks at Dhyan Ashram are     also very powerful means to experience what peace actually is.
          To perform a Vedic Havan:
  •     Take a copper bowl/kund, put some cow dung cake in it along with sesame and guggul. 
  •     Light fire using camphor and give oblations of ghee from a desi cow while   chanting the mantras.     
  •      You may also acquire a ready ­to­ do ­havan kit from Dhyan Ashram.

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…

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 …

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…
