TEA -- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL

































JAPANESE TEA CEREMONY – BODHI DHARMA-  SHAOLIN TEMPLE KUNGFU - URUMI SWORD- SWASTIKA TEA LEAF READING CUPS


this time when i was on leave,  i used to watch a programme on HISTORY CHANNEL.


it was about 2 professional american fighters, going to all corners of the world to learn a martial art , say for 2 weeks. then one of them will challenge the top most fighter of that strain ( karate/ kungfu/ judo etc ).




they were tough and no pushovers. i remember their names bill duff and jason. both were very likable characters , with no ego.


they went to the top secret shaolin temple in china. they were afforded a peek into the forbidden for foreigners, inner sanctum ALONG with history channel video camera--the first time ever--


and guess what-- BODHI DHARMA'S coloured portrait was there- with hairy barrel chest and all.




in 520 AD this mallu , seen in picture above( speaking my mother tongue malayalam ) residing in kerala ( voted by natural geographic / word traveller -- as one of the 5 top beautiful places on the planet ) , travelled to canton china-- and there he taught the monks in shaolin temple--KALARI --  our ancient 6000 year old martial art--- founded by warrior sage Parashurama..




today they call it kung-fu there.


all this is on camera-- the chief priest was proud to admit.


our swords were far superior -- 4 metres long -- double edged and serrated -- sometimes 4 pronged to stave off arrows -- worn around the waist like a belt-- laden with metallurgical poisons like mercury/ arsenic/ lead-- called URUMI


IT BROKE MACH ONE ( SPEED OF SOUND ) . ( no other weapon can do this!-- hence this deadly Urumi demoralises the enemy )












you can crack a whip--the crack is the edge of the whip breaking the sound barrier!


all you need was to nick and draw blood-- we still have it in our temples-- taken out on special occasions--


kalari warriors kept several tourniquets tied around their waist and knees, along with turmeric based blood clotting powder.




not many people know that bodhi dharma went into a meditative trance for 9 years, staring at a cave wall. once when he fell asleep, in a fit of self infliction , he cut off both his eyelids and threw them away.





the chinks watched that SPOT closely --and then took a plant which grew next to it and boiled it, hoping that they wont fall asleep , while meditating.


THIS IS THE TEA-- the whole world drinks. even today drinking tea is a meditative experience for all far east people--






nobody knows the reason for an elaborate tea drinking ritual – even today in japan etc.


japanese call bodhi dharma -- daruma.  




a tea ceremony is an aesthetic way of entertaining guests, in which everything is done according to an established order.  


the tea ceremony emphasized the following four qualities: harmony between the guests and the implements used; respect, not only among the participants but also for the utensils; cleanliness, derived from Shintō practices and requiring participants to wash their hands and rinse their mouths as symbolic gestures of cleansing before entering the cha-shitsu; and tranquillity, which is imparted through long and caring use of each article of the tea ceremony.

TEA LEAF READERS- - NEXT TIME READ IN A TEA BOWL WITH SWASTIKA PLACED AT THE BOTTOM.


AND BY THE WAY, IF THE BRITISH HAD TRADED OPIUM FOR COFFEE WITH CHINA INSTEAD OF TEA --  BRITAIN WOULD HAVE BEEN A COFFEE DRINKING NATION.


It is a LIE that the British introduced tea to India. We in Kerala have been growing tea ( chaya ) on the Wayanad Western Ghats since antiquity.  

The Arab middlemen of spices loved it . 

The commercial production of tea in India was started by the British East India Company and vast tracts of land in the NE of India have been exclusively developed into tea estates which produce various types of tea.

Grace and peace!

  2. Dear Sir,

    What is your take on the new Tamil movie - 7th Sense (Ezhaam Arivu) in which it claims that Bodhi Dharma was the son of a Pallava King from Tamil Nadu?

  3. hi linus,

    admiral zheng he has written that bodhi dharma was from ko-zhe ( short form for kozhikode / calicut ) .

    the tamilians have taken that as kan-chi to form kanchipuram. bodhidharma was supposed to have boarded the chinese junk from tamilnadu, on the way back to canton after the ship left calicut , and trincomalee.

    what is 100% sure is that his picture is there in shaolin temple. he taught KALARI .

    kalari is those days takes 10 years to master under a gurikkal. it is not only about weapon fighting, but about anatomy , nadis , vulnerable points etc.

    kalari schools did NOT exist in tamil nadu.

  4. hi linus,

    i forgot to add another thing.

    BODHI is actually buddhi ( which means intelligent in malayalam and sanskrit ).

    The buddhists of China say bodhi for " enlightened soul"--as Buddha got enlightment under a peepal tree of a Hindu temple, and hence is called Bodhi tree.

    DHARMAN is a very popular name in kerala. I myself have 6 close Dharman malayali friends.

    1. hi v,

      Modaginil also known in India as Provake,Modalert, Modapro, Modafil, Modvigil, Modatec, Alertec , Provigil etc is touted a an “upper drug “ promising enhanced memory/ problem solving/ mental processing , motivation, an unrelenting ability to focus, all for hours at a time etc

      They say Modafinil is not addictive and does not appear to have many side effects.

      This is what Capt Ajit Vadakayil says – never mind if the whole world does NOT support me.

      A lab scientist can take this –and get some temporary benefits like extreme concentration .

      But a leader must not as he will become tunnel visioned and lose the ability to pull back the lens.

      This makes him lose leadership spirit and loss of team loyalty. You can become too focused and it will cause you to miss the bus..

      IN THE LONG TERM USERS OF THIS DRUG WILL GET ALZHIEMERS. PREGNANT WOMEN MUST NOT TAKE THIS – HER CHILD MAY GET RETARDED.

  10. Dear Captain,

    Is there any cure for snoring?

    1. hi nb,

      first read about sleep APNEA .

      lot of people who have been reported as "died peacefully in sleep" actually died of apnea . sleep apnea is a breathing obstruction, causing the sleeper to keep waking up to begin breathing again.

      while you sleep, the muscles of your throat relax, your tongue falls backward, and your throat becomes narrow and "floppy."

      as you breathe, the walls of the throat begin to vibrate - generally when you breathe in, but also, to a lesser extent, when you breathe out.

      these vibrations lead to the characteristic sound of snoring. the narrower your airway becomes, the greater the vibration and the louder your snoring.

      sometimes the walls of the throat collapse completely so that it is completely occluded, creating a condition called apnea (cessation of breathing). this is a serious condition which requires medical attention.

      normal snoring doesn’t interfere with the quality of your sleep as much as sleep apnea,

      so if you’re suffering from extreme fatigue and sleepiness during the day, your problem may be more than just snoring.

      tell you room mate to take a mobile phone video of you snoring, to find out if it is sleep apnea.

      THE DREAMER AND REM SLEEP, THE WITNESS AND TURIYA VADAKAYIL


      snoring is most common in REM sleep, because of the loss of muscle tone characteristic of this stage of sleep. during REM sleep, the brain sends the signal to all the muscles of the body (except the breathing muscles) to relax.

      unfortunately, the tongue, palate, and throat can collapse when they relax. this can cause the airway to narrow and worsen snoring.

      people who snore often have too much throat and nasal tissue, or “floppy” tissue that is more prone to vibrate. the position of your tongue can also get in the way of smooth breathing.

      as you reach middle age and beyond, your throat becomes narrower, and the muscle tone in your throat decreases.

      men have narrower air passages than women and are more likely to snore. nasal and sinus problems, blocked airways make inhalation difficult and create a vacuum in the throat, leading to snoring.

      being overweight or out of shape can cause fatty tissue and poor muscle tone contribute to snoring.

      alcohol intake, smoking, sleeping pills and certain medications can increase muscle relaxation leading to more snoring.

      avoid sleeping on your back, where it more likely for your tongue and soft tissues to drop and obstruct your airway.

      make a pocket on your pyjama shirt between your shoulder blades -and stitch in a tennis ball, so that you cannot sleep on your back.

      having a stuffy nose makes inhalation difficult and creates a vacuum in your throat, which in turn leads to snoring.

      keep nasal passages clear by using nasal steroid sprays and nasal decongestants. very little of the steroid is absorbed into the body from the nose so there are few side effects with these sprays.

      in ayurveda we use a neti pot to rinse out the nasal passages with a salt-water solution to keep nasal passages clear. keep bedroom air moist with a humidifier.

      people with sleep apnea are the last to find solutions to a problem in office meetings-- they become dimwits, due to lack of REM sleep and oxygen in the brain.

    hi rm,

    THIS IS ACOUSTIC SCIENCE

    JUST OVER THE WALL OF MY PREVIOUS HOME IS CALICUT , WE HAD THE SCIENCE PLANETARIUM

    THERE THEY HAVE A CONCAVE SURFACE WHERE OF YOU WHISPER THE SOUND CARRIES LIKE A TELEPHONE WITHOUT WIRES.

    THIS IS SCIENCE

    INDRAPRASTA HALL BUILT BY MAYA DANAVA WAS FULL OF SUCH MAGIC ( REAL ACOUSTIC SCIENCE )

    WHEN DURYODHANA FELL IN THE THE POOL . DRAUPADI STOOD IN AMBUSH IN SUCH A CONCAVE FOCUS AREA AND WHISPERED " ANDHASYA PUTR ANDAHAH " THE SON OF THAT BLIND MAN IS BLIND TOO.

    THIS WAS ALLUDING THAT HIS FATHER KING DRITARASHTRA IS BLIND AND HIS MOTHER GANDHARI TOO HAD BLINDFOLDED HERSELF --BLIND PARENTS

    THERE COULD BE NO GREATER INSULT TO A GUEST KING

    THIS WOULD BE THE ROOT CAUSE OF MAHABHARATA WAR 6000 YEARS AGO.

    SOMETIMES MENTAL BLEEDING HURT MORE THAN ACTUAL BODY BLEEDING

    HINDU LTTE TOOK BIRTH ONLY BECAUSE SRI LANKAN BUDDHIST SOLDIERS SPRAYED AERATED SHIT ON TAMIL VILLAGES USING HELICOPTERS .

    LATER THIS LTTE MOVEMENT WAS HIJACKED AND HINDU PRABHAKARAN BECAME BRO PIRBHAKARAN AND HE NAMED HIS SON CHARLES

    LTTE SOLDIERS SPLIT AS THEY WOULD NOT AGREE TO BE BURIED , RATHER THAN BE CREMATED

    THIS WILL REMAIN THE MOST EFFECTIVE HEGELIAN DIALECTIC IN HISTORY--UNLESS WE DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS IN KASHMIR , BALOCHISTAN , NW FRONTIER AND SIND

    UNLIKE WHAT PEOPLE LIKE HYPER PATRIOT GEN ROY CHOUDHURY THINK -POLITICIANS WIN AND LOSE BATTLES

    CHANAKYA CONVERTED HIMSELF FROM ACADEMICIAN TO POLITICIAN

    HE WAS THE ULTIMATE POLITICIAN-- HE CAN NEVER EVER BE SURPASSED.

    HE CREATED AND MENTORED HIS OWN KING. THIS KING WOULD RULE THE WHOLE OF INDIA EXCEPT NAMBOODIRI CHANAKYAs HOMELAND OF KERALA

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2014/08/chanakya-taxila-university-professor.html

    THE MAP BELOW IS WRONG-- THE EASTERN COAST OF TAMIL NADU WAS UNDER THE RULE OF MAURYA EMPIRE.

    http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Maurya_Empire

    BANGALORE , PALANI OF YAZIDIS ( BUILT BY CALICUT KING CHERAMAN PERUMAL ) AND SRINGERI MUTT WERE ALL PART OF THE ANCIENT CHERA EMPIRE.

    CHERA EMPIRE WAS THE RICHEST AND MOST BEAUTIFUL PART OF THIS PLANET. NOBODY DARED ATTACK IT, BECAUSE OF OUR KALARI TRADITION.

    PUNJABIS AND MARATHAS HAVE WIND IN THEIR EARS—THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHO A KERALA KALARI WARRIOR WAS.

  15. YESTERDAY I WAS WATCHING JAPANESE TV

    THEY TRIED TO SAY THAT CHINA INVENTED SILK

    SORRY--

    INDIAN KINGS WERE WEARING SILK LONG BEFORE THE CHINESE OR ANYBODY ELSE ON THE PLANT

    Sericulture, existed in Indus Valley Civilization at least 3000 years before chinese LIFTED and started making silk in 3500 BC.

    silk was called PATTU in South India -- it is called the same even today.

    Till 150 years ago , India was the largest producer of silk . Rothschild gave the propaganda of non-violence to kill our silk industry .

    Crypto Jew Jains and Gandhi was used to degrade India's silk industry -- Rothschild started promoting AHIMSA SILK, a type of wild silk made from the cocoons of wild silk moths.

    Even today India is the largest consumer of silk on this planet.

    You go to any home in India and you can see amazing silk sarees.

    The bride always wore silk in India.

    Can you see a single bride in India who does NOT wear a eye catching silk saree ?

    At the coronation of King Mahabali , he wore silk--it is in our records. Silk does NOT allow mosquitoes to bite through the fabric. Silk's absorbency makes it comfortable to wear in warm weather

    In ancient Susruta Samhita silk thread was used as non-absorbable surgical sutures.

    Indian silk was far superior to Chinese silk and was in great demand in Egypt . Our silk has a triangular prism-like structure of the silk fibre, which allowed refraction of incoming light at different angles, thus producing different colors.

    WE INDIANS DISCOVERED REFRACTION AND TOTAL INTERNAL REFLECTION

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/10/total-internal-reflection-capt-ajit.html

    Before going for Vanvas Sita removed her silk clothes / diamond jewellery, and wore rough cotton.
