PRIORITISE YOG


Yog is a beautiful journey, it is a journey into the physically manifested Creation, enjoying its aspects and then going beyond them into higher forms of pleasures and higher dimensions of experience. I get people from all walks of life and from all strata of society who come to me with a zillion questions about the physical life and what lies beyond it. The interesting thing being in all those zillion questions is that they can be divided into five heads as I have previously written in my last article, the sixth head being the true seeker, these are the people who have lived with me in previous lifetimes and have been a part of me and my various lives, whether on the battlefields of Afghanistan or the dunes of Rajasthan or the ashrams of Narmada and the Himalayas. They have started their journeys with me many lifetimes back and have now come again to continue them…in this life.

I normally have been questioned by many people about the experiences which one gets on the spiritual path, the highly educated (in the modern sciences) call these experiences a play of the subconscious combined with the hidden desires and the not-so-educated (the believers) keep on asking me for an experience. It is a regular problem which I face whenever I am teaching energy sciences, “please give me an experience, just once” and a few thousands of you who have done dhyan with me can vouch for the fact that the experiences happen and they happen more than once but you always ask for more…this thought is not for all of you, it is for those who have not as yet got their experience.

For the last one year, I have been repeatedly asked by a specific sadhak for an experience, every time he comes to the ashram, the question is the same…”when will I get my first experience?”, so this time I thought that let me give him some gyan of the inner world and show him his lacunae.
I asked him to come and see me at 8 pm at the ashram and said that I would be waiting. The gentleman landed way beyond 9. I had a casual conversation and then asked him to come the next day at the same time. He again landed way beyond 9. This time I asked him the reason for his delay. He, in a very casual way, told me that the driver got lost…”the driver got lost? In this day and age of satellite maps to locate a well-known ashram, the driver got lost?”

My next question to him was about the time when he left his place. He again casually gave a window time of 45 minutes to an hour, when the driving time is a minimum of 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Next I asked him whether he had ever gotten late for any of his business meetings. If he could remember even one time…the expression on his face told me that he was struggling to find even one such incident.

Priority. The science of the spirit does not ask you for priority, it demands it as a law. Giving your mundane acts of life priority over this ultimate science, this final frontier, the journey beyond, out of the clutches of the physical life.

If one takes it in such a casual way then the experiences will elude, or they will be just as the intellectuals and the highly educated say, “it is in the subconscious.”
So if you choose to venture into this dimension with me, then please be prepared to give it the foremost priority….or else you will waste your time, this is a real science, it is not in the mind, its boundaries are limitless and the experiences phenomenal, but it demands like any other science…priority.

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…
