YOGA FOR ARTHRITIS

How to cure Arthritis by Yoga (Part I)
While most arthritis patients take to physiotherapists for treatment, they are unaware of the psychosomatic origins of the disease. Arthritis is essentially a manifestation of emotional congestion that arrest most people by their late twenties. This congestion causes the vital fluids in the joints to dry up slowly. Likewise a lot of friction is produced in the joints, making them brittle in the long run.

Nagging Pain in the wrist, pain felt in knees while getting up, or pain in ankle joints , shoulders, pain in finger joints while writing, basically any pain felt in the joints, is the beginning of arthritis. What is the cause of this pain ? As per Ayurveda, this pain is a collection of ama (toxins) in the body which manifests as swelling. If we don’t immediately make amends then arthritis sets in. To remove these symptoms and get rid of arthritis it has to be corrected at the root. Yoga and Ayurveda go to root cause of the problem and the root cause is the emotional centre, the person is emotionally congested.

Clairvoyantly, emotions are seen as small beings/devils flying all around, looking for a weak point to sit on. Wherever they find weakness/instability they go and sit there and keep collecting and form a colony and then start draining the body of the vital prana. Prana, the force that holds the creation together as well as your body. As this prana is constantly being lost from a part of the body it gasps for prana, the same way like you gasp for breath, due to which there is a reaction in the body, somewhat like an allergic reaction which leads to swelling there, that’s arthritis. So simply stop getting emotionally congested, stop being emotional, But then you will ask how is that possible for a normal person? Yes it is definitely possible. You have to lead your life for yourself, for your personal experiences, if you do this there is no question of you being emotionally congested. But if you lead a life to control other people, telling them what they are supposed to do or the other way round people telling you what you are supposed to do then the problem of emotional congestion  starts. So the simplest way to arrest arthritis is stop being emotional. If you think that’s too difficult then lets take help of yoga and Ayurveda.

Since the problem finds its roots in something that is beyond physical, the solution too calls for a more holistic approach. In the book ‘Sanatan Kriya, The Ageless Dimension’, I have detailed a technique to get riddance from heavy emotions by cutting connections with heavy prana from the surya chakra. This would remove all the heaviness and the body would feel light instantly.

Ayurvedic remedy

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…
