YOGA FOR A CALM MIND

A healthy mind dwells in a healthy body. Usually it is said that the mind is the brain. Although in Yoga the mind is something different than the brain, mind is that energy that is controlling the brain and that is the bindu visarg chakra. It is present at the back of the head where brahmins generally tie knot in the pigtail, the nectar of life is constantly produced here and this is what gives one their beauty and glow.So we will discuss today how to maintain beauty and glow with yoga and maintain a calm mind.

TECHNIQUES :
I detail here some techniques from the book, Sanatan Kriya, The Ageless Dimension’, to develop the calmness inside and the glow outside.

  • Take 4 Desi amlas (small in size and golden glow as apposed to a hybrid alma which will have a yellowish greenish glow)
  • Remove the juice and add a spoonful of one year old single flower honey. Honey as it ages gains medicinal and nourishing qualities. So this will nourish you back to beauty and glow.
  • Drink this early morning on empty stomach.

Within 3 months it will start showing its effects.When it goes to the stomach vital prana is drawn out from these two herbs and it goes to the bindu visarg chakra directly and nourishes it. The body runs on prana and not what we eat or drink. The human body can survive without food and water for sometime.  Even if the breath is stopped the body can survive for a few minutes but without prana the body cannot survive even a nano second.

Take this tonic for one month regularly and only after that you start with the calming pranayam, as detailed ahead. Its vital to be patient and follow as told.

  • Now you have to generate a gentle kind of pressure around your face. Inhale and try to force the air out but block the mouth and the nose.
  • Constrict the throat so it does not go down back. Hold as long as comfortable then gently exhale.
This creates a backwards pressure. An immediate change in appearance will be evident after this practice. This removes the toxins collected at the Bindu visarg. When you push back the breath it removes all the heaviness and negativity and when you exhale it very gently releases the nourishing fluid which comes towards the face from the bindu chakra. This practice would also improve your vision. The effect on the face is instant, a glow and radiance is observed.

  • Before you go to sleep take some pure essential oil of rosemary.
  • Put 2-3 drops in a bucket of warm water and put your feet in it and relax.
  • The water should not be hot, only warm.
The feet have the property of pulling in prana wherever you put them, so here the property of rosemary oil is again relaxing the area of the brain.

YOGI ASHWINI
These two simple herbal formulations conjoined with the pranayam will relax you. Nowadays medical science acknowledges the presence of sushumna nadi. A thin strip of energy running from the mooladhaar chakra (base of the spine)  to the agya chakra (forehead). On dissecting the body scientists found the vagus nerve, a very thin nerve running next to the spine. In the next article we will talk about two basic asans pertaining to vegus nerve which will keep the body healthy and glowing.

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…
