One final teaching


Loving greetings from Westerwald

Today at the "graduation" of 59 advanced yoga teachers I told the following story that I'd like to share:

Three students, upon completing their studies went to sit with their teacher for one final teaching before they left the ashram. They asked him to tell them how to continue their studies and yoga practice while living in the world.

The teacher responded by simply saying the Sanskrit letter “da”, then he asked: “Do you…

Ways to Stay In the Best Shape with Healthy Snacks

There are many misconceptions by many people when it comes to losing their weight. They think that dieting is the only way out to stay in shape. But this is not so at all because even a person with healthy snacks can manage to lose their weight while still enjoying a lot of different varieties of foods. Then there are people who look forward to consume weight loss pills with the hope of cutting down their weight but at the end of the day, they realize that it has only led to lose their money…

Communicate with your body.

A chronic ache or pain is an invitation to stop and take a look at your life. Your body is telling you it’s time to make a change. Listen. Respect its request and odds are you’ll be heading off a greater health issue and saving yourself undue suffering and expenses.

Ajna Chakra and Kundalini...

Only when Ajna chakra opens, forms of Lingam, Shiva and Vishnu cud be realised and its really understood why these r worshipped, not otherwise...

with it this is also clearly understood that Brahma has no existence in reality...

Brahma refer to the "self as whole forms of creation coming in fore"

Generally all books on kundalini have been written by those in whom Ajna has never opened...

people make fool of themselves by imagining different triangulation forms with…

Often human forms r projected as Guru...

its a grave mistake...Its an abuse of the meaning of Guru...

if one listen to any Guru stotram, one wud understand that Awareness, All pervasiveness, Shiva and Vishnu alone r the only Guru...

No where in any verse says human form as Guru...

Yoga to reach the common busy people for well being

Inspired by Yoga Vidya philosophy and teachings, I feel there is a need for taking Yoga to common busy people who need simple yoga activity to remain fit and active.

Where there is a will there is a way.

I have tried simple and easy yoga postures and methods including meditation and art of healthy breathing that can go a long way to satisfy the common persons.

I know it may not be possible to expect approval and acceptance by experts as they believe in traditional complex yoga… Continue

The Forgotten History of Manu Parampara

What is the basis of Hinduism? Is it based on Manu Parampara or Trimurty System? This was the question asked by Navajyotisri Karunakara Guru, whose life mission was to enlighten not only the Hindus but also the whole humanity about the existence of a spiritual governance that is God’s alone. The Puranic tradition or the Trimurty tradition mentions that Brahma, Vishnu and Siva are the authorities of creation. The Vaishnavites claim that Vishnu is the Creator; the Saivites say it is Siva while…

Upäsāna vs Vicharāna Marga

We generally hear much about Upäsāna i.e. the marga or path of worship and Vicharāna i.e. the path of enquiry. Many people have asked me about this, so I shall try to bring some clarity to it. Upäsāna is taken from the root word Upa meaning to be near and Asana to sit. Thus, it means to sit near. Upanishad were drawn from Upa meaning to be near and Nishad meaning to hear. In the ancient times and in some places till date, you can find Guru-Shishya parampara being followed and you can see…

Healer Demonstrates Extraordinary Powers of Chi, Baffles Scientists..

Life force energy, also known as chi or prana, is found in everything. This subtle and pervasive energy is said to be the vital building block of all matter and creation, both physical and non-physical. This energy flows in, through, and around the body, forming vibrant and cohesive living systems in endless forms. Many traditions believe that a steady supply of chi is necessary to sustain all living beings. By understanding the rhythm, flow, and the qualities of life force energy, a wide…

Kundalini Rising,......: The Root Chakra

Kundalini Rising, Part 1: The Root Chakra

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” ~ Carl Jung

Imagine your spine is a tree trunk with seven ascending flowers (chakras) growing out of it. These flowers are either opened or closed depending upon your health, mental disposition, and ability to communicate with the cosmos. These flowers emit a distinct energy unique to your personal frequency, but they are profoundly…

Tension: Physical and Emotional..

The true master creates discontent in you ... and such a discontent that nothing of this world can ever satisfy it. He creates such a longing in you, that unless you attain to the ultimate you will remain aflame, afire. He creates pain in your heart, he creates anguish ... because life is slipping by every moment, and each moment gone is gone forever, and you have not attained to God yet, and one day is over.

He creates such a deep longing in you, such pain in the heart! He creates…

Death is a great revelation,Life, real life, never dies.

The moment of the death of someone you have loved deeply brings your own death into your mind. The moment of death is a great revelation. It makes you feel impotent and helpless. It makes you feel that you are not. The illusion of being disappears.

Anybody will be shaken because suddenly you see that the ground…
