SANDS OF TIME

Do you know when Suraiyya died?
Do you know when Dev Anand died?
Do you know when K L Sehgal died?
Or when Rajesh Khanna died?
Or do you remember any incidents from their lives after their heydays had passed?

If you know any of the above, then it is pointless reading the thoughts below because then they are nonsense. But if you don’t, then these thoughts might turn out life changing for you…so please memorise them.

At the peak of their careers each one of the above used to go around with security that was not even given to the politicians of that time, and I am talking about just 40 or so years back. It was said about Dev Anand that there was a court order prohibiting him from wearing a black suit because when he used to wear one and walk on the road, women would commit suicide in the frustration of not having been able to meet him. Suraiyya could not go to her movie premiers as even security could not keep fans at bay and they would mob her. None of the above paid media for publishing their pictures or writing about them in social dos as is the trend with today’s celebrities and movie stars. Within few years of having reached their peak, they disappeared into nothingness, complete blank. No one chasing them, all the glory gone, even moving on streets without being noticed. Can you imagine the loss?

The world is a temporary phenomenon. For all of the above, a time was there when people gave their lives for them. Within a few years, all of them died alone. Time changes and all that is there passes away or changes form. What is temporary cannot remain. Beauty, wealth, health, popularity, these are all temporary aspects of manifested world which shall slip out of hands just like sand slips out of your fists slowly without even realising that it is going or that it is gone. Wasting your time on frivolous temporary aspects of life pushes you into a whirlpool of devolution where each passing day is more painful than previous. If these people could not retain what they had, I can assure you that you will also not and imagine…you only have a fraction of what they had.

Now if you look at the lives of saints, the likes of Guru Gobind Singh, Saibaba, Ram Krishna Paramhans, you will find that people remember them and sit and talk about them and their popularity is increasing with passing time. The reason being that they were focussed on the permanent and so, they are progressively permanent. They left their bodies satisfied while those mentioned before, left their bodies dissatisfied.

Till when there is time, wake up from your slumber, dreaming of the temporary world. Wake up to reality. Find a Guru.

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 …

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 Eyes and Ears

Yoga was conceived millennia ago; it is a science which has stood the test of time, survived invasions from races across the globe. Yoga has survived because it is shashwat (eternal), what it was, it will remain. Invaders and plunderers can destroy all the records, but they cannot destroy Yoga for it is a blessing straight from the Creator. The gyan of Yoga is handed down from the Guru to the shishya, the reason its theories are being rediscovered by modern scientists. As per Yoga, it is possible to maintain vision in the eyes along with good hearing abilities till the last. We have occipital lobes at the back and temporal lobes in the front of our brain, sides of the brain, right behind the temples. These two are directly connected to the sight and hearing abilities. Actually when you hear, it is not the eardrum that is resonating, it’s the lobe and when you are seeing, it is not the retina, but the lobe which is responsible for the vision. If your lobes are healthy, then the hearing …
