Good karma means doing good deeds




Creation is cyclical in nature. There is an upward curve followed by a downward curve. We are presently on the downward curve of creation, the peak of Kalyug. If you look around, everything is on a decline or fast deteriorating.
Let us take the health of humans as an example, if you compare your body and level of activity to that of your grandparents when they were your age, you would find, they had fitter and stronger bodies and were able to too much more work than yourself. Then if you go back few hundred years and compare their bodies to those of their forefathers, a similar trend would be observed. In fact there is a modern research which confirms that the brain size of humans is shrinking with time.
Not just health, the quality of food, air, water and environment is all on a downturn. Forests are fast disappearing, foods are laden with toxins, water is contaminated, air is unbreathable, wildlife is thinning out. In general, negativity is increasing — disease is on the rise, as is crime, theft, deceit and atrocities against animals. Creation is moving to the pits, and so are we, as part and parcel of creation.
What does one do then? Is there a way to escape the inevitable?
Students of commerce will tell you of a phenomenon called “short selling”. When the markets are doing down, the seller sells a security which is not owned by him at the time. It is motivated by the belief that the price of security will go down in future, enabling it to be bought back at a lower price to make a profit. Thus even when the market is overall going down, the seller is able to make profit or rise.
The phenomenon of short selling can be applied to the curve of creation as well. What is traded here are karmas. You do not have the karmas but sell them off by doing good of creation.
Interestingly, since the creation is on a downward slope, there is plenty of opportunity to do good karmas — save animals, feed poor, nurse sick and when the creation dips further, these karmas help you stay afloat. So even as the creation moves downward, you rise and pave way for a higher birth.
What is higher and lower birth, do an experiment. Shut off all lights in your room and draw curtains. Nothing should be visible, not even the LCD of your television. Shut yourself in this room for a whole day without sleeping, eating or drinking, you will get an expertence of lower births after death. Then get up before sunrise, breathe in deeply. Face the rising sun and chant om for 30 minutes, you will experience a higher birth.
So now you know whats your fate after death, it will be one of the two depending on your karma and if you believe there is no life after death, then come to Dhyan Ashram…I will make you experience it. And, would like to add here, that good karmas are not going to religious players, but doing good to the less fortunate.

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…
