Yog is road to eternal bliss

A yogi never falls ill, he never faces abhaav of anything, he does not have any kasht. The biggest pain is not in losing something but in getting something which is dear to you.

As per Ayurveda, the body is made of three doshas. “Dosha” translates as a defect or an impurity. That is, the body itself is impure. There is no negative or positive because everything around you, everything physical, is bound by time. It is bound to end, and the time for it to end is decided the moment you get it, irrespective of whether that thing is good or bad.

The biggest pain is not in losing something but in getting something which is dear to you. The dearer a thing is to you, the more expensive it proves to be, as that much more pain it will cause to you. The day you get something, that day itself the pain that comes with it is also decided. Similarly, the day you take the body, the doshas that come along with it are also determined because the meaning of body is that which is dooshit.

Let me share an excerpt from life of Ramkrishna Paramhansa. He was very fond of eating and would ask his wife to prepare different kinds of delicacies for him. One day his wife asked him — “You give lengthy discourses on eating less, eating satvic food, observing fasts and that how these are all bandhans. Then why do you indulge in such foods?”  His reply came, “There is so much tej in my soul that it is unable to stay in this dooshit body. By eating all these foods, I have to forcibly live in this body because my time to go has not come as yet; there are still some unfinished tasks that I need to complete.”

He also told her that the day he stops eating, three days from then, he would leave his body.

And that is exactly how it happened. The day he stopped eating, people knew he was about to go and third day from then, he left the body.

When there is dosh in the body, only then can the soul stay in the body. If the body becomes pure then the soul will not stay in the body. When there is no dosh, then what will you eat and drink and if you do not eat or drink, then what is the use of living?

The marg of yog has everything in it. Eat anything, drink anything, do anything, but keep walking the path of Guru. If you walk with your Guru, then that thing will stop affecting you.  But if you are not walking then that thing will get hold of you, choke you and you will leave the path of yog.

A yogi never falls ill, he never faces abhaav of anything, he does not have any kasht.

But if due to any reason he wanders from the path of yog, then there is lot of kasht. So there is nothing right or wrong, positive or negative, walk on the path of yog and evolve.

Fulfillment of desires is not evolution. The signs of evolution are clear. You stop falling sick, time passes very quickly, levels of detachment increase, that is, you stop getting hurt.

Yog is a marg of pure anand. It is a path of experience, path to direct interaction with the devs and devis. It is sadhna of within, it involves changes within, it is the marg of moksha.

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…


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 …


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…
