Yoga for Anger Management (Part-1) Yogi Ashwini


'Have you lately been getting very angry? is anger your second nature? are you angry all the time? if your answer is yes then you are moving towards the next problem after anger which is hypertension. hypertension is a manifestation of the weakening of the heart. Excess of negativity and hypertension weakens the muscles of the heart, which is controlled by the mooladhar chakra.' 


Just relax and rub your hands together to warm them up and slowly bring them together at your mooladhar chakra. You’ll feel some tingling at the tips of your fingers. If the chakra is weak then you will feel nothing and your hands will come together without any resistance. If it’s strong, you’ll feel pulsations and resistance as your hands try to come near each other.
The basic reason for the mool chakra becoming weak is hyperactivity which exhausts the vital prana. Don’t forget that prana is limited. The cells of your body cannot be recharged. You can only spend it and hyperactivity ensures you spend it fast. If you want to conserve it, then stop getting angry.

In gita, lord krishna tells arjuna,
krodhaat bhavati sammohah sammohaat smritivibhramah | smritibhramshaat buddhinaasho buddhinaashaat pranashyati ||2-63||from anger comes delusion, from delusion a lapse of memory, from lapse of memory there is destruction of buddhi, and from destruction of buddhi person is destroyed.

Anger and other hyper emotions increase the metabolic rate of the cell and dry up the fluidity of the body, as a result the body ages very fast. When the metabolic rate shoots up, it results in a faster pulse rate and rapid breathing. These are also the symptoms of a person who is dying. The key to health and longevity is in slowing down. I will give you a combination of ayurveda and specific yogic kriyas to manage your anger.

Ayurvedic remedy

The first remedy and one of the easiest solutions is sugarcane. Just have two to three glasses of sugarcane juice throughout the day and it immediately has the effect of relieving you of anger.

You may also consume rose sherbet. Take some petals of desi gulab (not the english or hybrid variety). The desi gulab is small in size and sweet smelling. The petals are a little bitter if you eat them. Take about 100 grams of petals and boil them gently for about half hour and then filter it. Add a bit of brown sugar and store this solution. whenever you feel you are getting angry, take a bit of this sherbet, put in some cold water and gulp it down.

When you are angry, the heavy emotions immediately affect the surya chakra which inturn disturbs the anahat chakra. Rose has the soothing property of calming down your anahat chakra.

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 …

KALKI THE EXTINGUISHER OF EVIL: A GLIMPSE OF THE FINAL INCARNATION

“Whenever and wherever there is a decline in righteousness, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of vice – at that time I descend Myself. In order to deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to re-establish the principles of dharma, I advent Myself epoch after epoch” Since the beginning, Lord Vishnu incarnated in various forms on earth from time to time. Whenever there was a disbalance in Creation, it was ensured that the avatars worked on rectifying it. The avatar was bespoke of the yuga as the yugas needed to change with time. He took birth as a Brahmin (Parshurama) to annihilate the corrupt Kshatriyas, as a prince(Rama) to slay the demon king of Lanka and as a cowherd(Krishna) who executed the cunning Kansa and steered the Pandavas to victory. Lord Vishnu is said to have ten avatars (dashavatars) in the present cycle of four yugas. Now, being the Kalyug, is the time when the tenth and the final avatar of Lord Vishnu will take birth on Earth. If we …

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…
