Mystic Mantra: Practice Yams and Niyams in totality to realise God

Make your connection so powerful that every time you undergo pain, He experiences it too and is forced to look at you and give you what you desire.



If we look back in history, some of the most amazing scientific feats are attributed to Bharatvarsha, be it the concept of “shunya” or “purna”, mechanism of solar system, the law of gravitation, Pythagoras theorem, science of metallurgy and more, all were mastered by the Vedic seers.

Some of the most wondrous pieces of architecture were built thousands of years ago by the Vedic masters and remain unparalleled in this age of modern technology. Not just this, the strength of their bodies and the abilities they possessed is unheard of in present times as are their descriptions of paranormal and direct interactions with gods and goddesses.

Why is it then that so many invasions have taken place and so many times our temples have been looted and plundered, when we had such an advanced culture with so much knowledge?

Take a look around, you will find the answer. We are all part of Shiv and this entire creation is His form. But, for Shiv to be able to feel us, the urge for Him inside us must be very strong. we have to have a desire to meet the God so strong that He has no option but to meet us. This may be understood with the example of our body, which has various organs and parts, some more pivotal than the others. If one cuts the hair or nail, we do not feel pain but if there is a cut anywhere in the skin, it pains and we are constantly reminded of that part of the body.

So we should try to become the nerve of Shiv. Create so much heat and attraction within yourself through the powerful practices of Ashtang Yog, Following the Yams and Niyams in totality, undergoing penance and tap so that you become the nerve of Shiv, instead of His nail.

Make your connection so powerful that every time you undergo pain, He experiences it too and is forced to look at you and give you what you desire.

The degradation of the vedic culture began when its custodians began selling it and using it for their own selfish gains. The wealth of the temples was used for private luxury, penance was forgotten, sadhaks became businessmen selling all aspects of this precious science without understanding an iota of it and all the nerves changed into nails, all of them became an unimportant part of Shiv.

Obviously it was not Shiv or the vedic practices anymore, it was attachments, bindings of maya and pleasures of the five senses.

Evolution was no more the aim, pleasures became the finality of physical life.

With avidya all around, the culture had to go, it had to be invaded, the wealth had to be redistributed, all the phenomenal forces and gyan had to go to dormancy, as it was not required — for only what is required is given to us.

Shiv exists and so do all the energies which the Vedas talk about. All the gods are there, the siddhis are for real, all that the Vedas talk about are real for the Vedas are real. All we have to do is to turn ourselves from fantasy into reality, experience the pain that an animal goes through when butchered, experience nature inside us, feel ourself as part of creation and only then Shiv will feel us as a part of Himself and we shall experience the reality or vidya.

Shiv is in all aspects of creation, in every atom but it is the consciousness of that atom which chooses to be aware of Shiv or in other words communicate with Shiv or elsewhere.

It is the fantasy which takes the consciousness elsewhere on the veils of maya.

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…
