YOGA THE ONLY COMPLETE EXERCISE , INTERNATIONAL DAY OF YOGA JUNE 21ST - CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL

YOGA BEYOND THE QUANTUM SCREEN PART 1 ,  YOGA FOR PTSD ,  YOGA ALLOWS ONLY DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING,  CHEST BREATHING AND HYPERVENTILATION IS BANNED IN YOGA, YOU DO NOT PRACTICE YOGA, YOU LIVE IT




The Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi during his address to UN General Assembly on September 27, 2014 asked the world leaders to adopt, June 21, as International Yoga Day.

Indeed it was done. 

For India will be No 1 superpower on this planet in just 2 decades and all are tripping over each other to please India and be recorded as one of India’s old friends ..



Yoga, is as old as antiquity.  It is NOT 2300 year old Patanjali stuff as the white invader makes it out to be.


Lord Shiva is the first Yoga teacher.   Shiva’s first student whom he gave the secrets of yoga was Maharishi Shukracharya , when he got pleased with his severe penance.

There are people who think that secrets of Kalari was imparted to Kerala by Lord Parashurama . Sorry, Maharishi Shukracharya predated Parshurama by several thousand of years.  

Lord Shiva gave only Shukracharya the Sanjeevani vidya which included the 108 marmas of Kalari.  

Shukracharya was a god in the entire middle east . 

Judasim came 3000 years ago, Christianity came 2000 years ago and Islam came 1300 years ago. 

Shukravar  ( Friday ) is a holiday for Muslims – they will NOT know why .

Shukracharya was the mentor of the Asuras.  He was political advisor to Kerala King Mahabali.  His bitter rival and class mate Brihaspati was mentor of the enemy camp of devas.   

Brihaspati was a god for the entire white Europeans ( Thor/ Zeus ) .  

Brihaspativar ( Thursday ) is a holy day for white Christians and they do not know why ( ascension day / Maundy Thursday etc ).

Vishnu took Vamana avatar and killed King Mahabali because he was getting too powerful and did the Ashwamedha Yagna declaring himself  Emperor over Deva lands.  

Even today we in Kerala do NOT celebrate Diwali ( victory of devas over asuras ), and we are the only state in India who celebrates Onam for our beloved emperor Mahabali.   

Festivals carry over millenniums – they say the truth .   Mind you , there is an amazing paradox here – Kerala Muslims and Christians celebrate Onam too.

Marmas were vital points on the human body, which could snuff out life or disable in an instant . Yet, the same marmas could revive a dying man too. 


Knowledge of marmas in now almost dead with only a few pretenders claiming knowledge .   Kalari marmas are part of Yoga.

http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/12/kalaripayattu-oldest-and-deadliest.html

In the post above , check out the comments column –one of the last comments dated 23rd Dec 2014. 
One reader has severe long standing pain on his right buttock and I ask for information a spot on his left shoulder blade.

The crusades where Christians and Muslims massacred each other is basically ancient enemity between followers of SHUKRACHARYA and BRIHASPATI.

The devas tried to steal Sanjeevani vidya by making Brihaspati’s son Kacha do a foul LOVE JIHAD with Shukracharya’s daughter Devayani .  


Enmity between two rival  “PAGAN”  clans were deep rooted.


Why June 21st ?  On June 21st the sun reaches its highest position in the sky as seen from the north pole. The summer solstice occurs during a hemisphere's summer. This is the northern solstice in the northern hemisphere.


Practically the longest day is when the latitude of the sun ( declination ) is same as the latitude of your home. The sun then is directly overhead at noon , provided your home is between the tropic of cancer and tropic of capricon. The sun then rises exactly in the east and sets exactly in the west.


On Dec 11,2014, The 193-member U.N. General Assembly approved by consensus a resolution establishing June 21 as 'International Day of Yoga'.


Yoga is the only exercise which addressed the complete human being—in terms of body mind and spirit.

Yoga is NOT a physical exercise alone.


Singer Madonna went into hardcore Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and the whole western world suddenly took notice .

Below: It requires a real moron to say that she did Yoga for her FIGURE.


Yes Yoga does wonders for the body . But its effect on mind and spirit is far greater.

No other physical form of exercise does so much for the BODY as yoga

Blood has a pump called heart. The lymph fluid does NOT have a pump. Yoga drives this invisible pump..

The western world of medicine and surgery, has come to know about the human body's lymph node system only 60 years ago.   Ayurveda has documented it 6200 years ago .


I am from Kerala, the land of Ayurveda. We have lost 90% of our ayurvedic herbs because the white invader called our snake groves superstition and they destroyed it.  These snake groves with a water body filled with poisonous king cobras held the most amazing medicinal herbs on this planet- unmolested.   


Despite getting independence successive Christian, Muslim and Communist atheist Kerala governments continues with the destruction of snake groves.  Today visiting a surviving snake grove is in the agenda of many white tourists. 100 years ago, Kerala had 30000 Snake temples. 

Today hardly 5000 are left – the best ones with huge water bodies were all destroyed..

Yoga is NOT about twisting yourself like a pretzel to stretch and limber up.  It had the amazing capability to boost your immunity to almost all diseases, and to help you to recover fast from existing ones.  This works like magic, as it has everything to do with your body's lymph system.  No other exercise on this planet addresses the lymph node system.    


In the West , due to the type of hormone injected non vegetarian food they eat, women suffer needlessly from breast tumours and uterus problems. This category must pay special attention to this post .Main stream science and medicine has NOT caught up yet with the Lymphatic system.






A good yoga teacher is an expert in the lymph system .  He can have one look at you, and tell you what is wrong with you. This science is so exact.  It is a shame to see middle aged women suffering from excessive bleeding, cramps and PMS.

The lymphatic system in your body is a series of connected nodes, ducts and organs that play a vital part in your immune system.


Whatever Yoga does NOT address, the Ayurvedic massage addresses. This is why a Yoga teacher in Kerala was always an expert in Ayurveda.


The human arteries are like a two-lane highway bringing nutrients, oxygen and fluid to the body part. The vein is a one-lane highway taking away the used blood, and the lymphatic channels are the other one-lane highway draining away the lymph fluid.

Two lanes in together, but two out lanes separate out.  Blood is responsible for collecting and distributing oxygen, nutrients and hormones to the entire body where lymph is responsible for collecting and removing waste products left behind in the tissues. Plasma leaks out of the capillaries to surround and bathe the body tissues.  This then drains into the lymph vessels.

Below: Get your lymphatic system pumping so that you’re firing on all cylinders.


The circulatory system processes an average of 20 liters of blood per day.  Roughly 17 liters per day of that gets reabsorbed directly into the blood vessels. The primary function of the lymph system is to provide an accessory route for these excess 3 liters per day to get returned to the blood.

So colourless lymph is essentially recycled blood plasma. The biggest lymph vessel is the thoracic duct, which empties back into the blood circulation.  At the cellular level, the lymphatic system is a pathway through which fluid flows from the intercellular spaces into the blood.

The lymphatic system has vessels just like our circulatory system, but DOES NOT HAVE A PUMP LIKE THE HEART  for the circulatory system .    In order to clear the “lymph” (the clear extracellular fluid that is collected by the lymphatic vessels and filtered by the lymph nodes), the lymphatic system must be pumped manually. 


Now you get a WEE idea why yoga goes into pretzel positions.


Madonna does NOT want to be Manchester Angelina Jolie with both breasts removed  - double mastectomy,

Below:  Look MA-- NO tits !   ( or even fried eggs )
Madonna will NOT get breast tumors.  Yoga experts do NOT even get diseases.



Lymph is a clear fluid that travels through your body's arteries, circulates through your tissues to cleanse them and keep them firm, and then drains away through the separate lymphatic system.


Lymph nodes are the filters along the lymphatic system.  Their job is to filter out and trap bacteria, viruses, cancer cells, and other unwanted substances, and to make sure they are safely eliminated from the body.

Each cell is nourished by the nutrients, oxygen and proteins that flow across the walls of capillaries into the interstitial fluid. There is a dynamic balance between the forces that help those nutrients to first exit the capillaries, and then get reabsorbed back into the blood stream.

The lymphatic system, because of its physical proximity to many tissues of the body, is responsible for carrying cancerous cells between the various parts of the body in a process called metastasis. The intervening lymph nodes can trap the cancer cells. If they are not successful in destroying the cancer cells the nodes may become sites of secondary tumors.


Lymphatic blockages can result in a swelling at the lymphatic node junctions. This condition results in providing a breeding ground for viruses and pathogenic material.   The lymph system acts as a reservoir of infection, churning out billions of infected immune-system cells that eventually spill into the blood stream, where they travel to other parts of the body.  

Up to ten times as much virus may reside in the lymph system as in the blood.

Lymph vessels run through the body in much the same way blood vessels do. The capillaries of the circulatory system leak the plasma and nutrients into the tissues of the body to feed the individual cells. Most of that fluid is not returned to the circulatory system, but rather stays in between the tissue layers as interstitial fluid.

This fluid is filtered into the lymph vessels and travels back toward the heart where it will be returned to the circulatory system. When the interstitial fluid enters the lymphatic system the fluid is called lymph.

Lymph nodes lie in specific locations along the lymphatic vessels and perform vital functions for the body's immune system. 6000 years ago, Ayurveda and Yoga  realized that many lymph nodes are situated near the region around the joints.   Humans have approximately 500-700 lymph nodes distributed throughout the body, with clusters found in the underarms, groin, neck, chest, and abdomen.



All lymph vessels lead to lymph nodes. Lymph nodes can be as small as the head of a pin, or as big as an olive . Half of the lymph nodes in the body, are  located in the abdomen, and many are in the neck.

The movements of the limbs and positions held during Yoga , help to act as a pump to move the lymph through the system. They are located in clusters around the knee, groin, elbows, shoulders and neck. Lymph nodes are also found in the central abdominal and chest area to assist with lymph drainage around the vital organs.

Every Yoga movement take this into account. This is why Yoga must not be self inflicted.  Because the lymph doesn't have a heart to pump it so good circulation of the lymphatic system depends on getting proper stretching exercise and yogic inverted postures which use gravity.

Human lymph nodes are bean-shaped and range in size from a few millimeters to about 1–2 cm in their normal state. Fats are evacuated through lymphatic vessels. These vessels are located in virtually every area of the body where fats may accumulate. The functioning of the immune system is stimulated through increased lymph flow.

The additional flow carries more antigens to the lymph nodes, thereby increasing antibody/antigen contact. This has been found to help with chronic or subacute inflammatory processes -- chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune disease, bronchitis, sinusitis, amygdalitis, tonsillitis, laryngitis, arthritis, acne and eczema.

When the lymphatic system becomes blocked or begins working slowly then it effects all of the body. All of the toxins that your body will normally throw away will then be soaked into other organs and can cause other harmful health conditions, including obesity.

The Ayurvedic lymphatic drainage massage works with the filtering and cleaning of the lymph nodes, starting at the arms and legs and moving towards the lymph nodes.  The lymph nodes are gently stimulated, encouraging them to discharge their contents throughout the lymphatic network, facilitating the removal of lymphatic waste from the body.

IGNORANT western massues ( happy ending party ) and permanently damaged the non-return valves of your lymph nodes. Think back --when did you do allow a such a spurious massage on your back torso and shoulders.

Approximately 70% are superficial lymphatic capillaries located  just under, the skin. The remaining 30%, which are known as deep lymphatic capillaries, surround most of the body’s organs.

THE DEEP ONES CAN ONLY BE STIMULATED BY YOGA – NOT EVEN BY MASSAGE .


Lymphatic drainage massage ( use sesame or virgin coconut oil ) has a positive effect on the following conditions:--

Fluid retention – puffy ankles, legs, eyes, and abdomen.
Arthritis and rheumatism.
Assistance for migraine, headaches, and MS
Constipation and digestive disorders.
Sinusitis and hayfever.
Hormonal imbalance.
Recurring infections – colds, flu, ear or chest.
Skin disorders – acne, scleroderma, eczema and psoriasis.

Wearing a tight compression garment during yoga exercise also provides resistance to further stimulate the lymph flow.  This acts like wringing a wet towel.  Like body inversions and head stand exercises, twists offer your body new ways to remove toxins and flush important lymph around the entire torso.

Yogic asanas to aid lymph flow includes neck rotation, shoulder shrugs, ankle pumps, leg slides, shoulder blade squeezes etc.  Yoga diaphragmatic breathing and many yoga positions open up the chest cavity, while poses like shoulder stands, enlist gravity to help lymph fluid get where it is supposed to go.


Surya namaskar is done for deep Lymph node drainage.  Surya namaskar can increase lymph flow 20 fold.  Two-thirds of the lymph is produces in the liver and intestines.

Below: The main idea of doing Surya Namaskar is to do sun gazing. This is done when the altitude of the sun is low and the UV effect on the eyes is less.   



Because the lymphatic system is a closed pressure system and has one-way valves that keep lymph moving towards the heart, when one turns upside down like in Shirshasan , the entire lymphatic system is stimulated, thus strengthening your immune system.

Lymph fluid is relieved from the legs and ankles and with regular practice prevents the buildup of fluid in the legs and feet.  Usually gravity is pulling us down and compressing our bodies, yet when we do inversions this process is completely reversed. 


So instead of working against us, gravity is working for us by decompressing our bodies and reversing the flow of the lymphatic system, which does NOT have a pump.

Yoga asanasas help to shift lymph fluids around your body in ways that you would not ordinarily be able to achieve in daily life .

Inverted yoga poses are particularly beneficial to the white collar office workers who have occupations that require prolonged sitting still . These work positions increase the occurrence of fluid build up in the blood vessels and lymphatic channels of the legs. 


With light yoga inversions, swelling, discomfort and other chronic conditions can be alleviated. Finally surface lymph drainage massage and yoga asana deep lymph fluid channeling if done properly can cause obese people to lose weight and dimpled cellulite--it is more or less a miracle. .

Kalari marma knock out points can permanently damage certain NON-RETURN valves of the lymphatic system, when means the enemy goes home bloats up and dies.  

YOGA MASTERS HAVE A HUGE AURA.  PEOPLE WHO CAN READ AURAS CAN FILTER OUT FRAUD YOGA GURUS FROM A DISTANCE.

Below: Pattabhi Jois , Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga guru . Why are the students clapping?  Gratitude is inherent in yoga .


svasti prajābhyaḥ paripālayantāṁ nyāyena mārgeṇa mahīṁ mahīśāḥ
gobrāhmaṇebhyaḥ śubhamastu nityaṁ lokāḥ samastāḥ sukhino bhavantu


Meaning:
May prosperity be glorified,
May rulers  rule the world with law and justice,
May divinity ( brahmAn ) and Dharma ( cow ) be protected.

May all beings be happy and prosperous.

Yoga has timings. 

You cannot get up at midnight and start doing yoga.  Like how the aerobic Zumba dancers swing their asses arount at night showing off their CAMEL TOES .  


The ancient Vedic seers knew this 6000 years ago.


Magnesium and potassium live normally within the human cell, and sodium and calcium are found outside. During the day sodium sneaks into the cell, taking a hydrogen ion with it, which is acidifying.  In order to buffer this acidity, which is toxic to the cell, calcium also moves in.  


This has the effect of displacing potassium ( by sodium) and magnesium ( by calcium ) which is pushed out of the cell.  At night the opposite takes place and potassium and magnesium move back into the cell, pushing out the calcium and sodium, which takes the hydrogen ion with it. This has the effect of cleansing the cell, so you should wake up bright and refreshed.

Surya namaskar needs the rising sun at low altitude. The solar wind at dawn, charges the earth’s magnetic field,  and stimulates the pineal gland.  This is the best time to meditate , chant and sun gaze as the level of Ultra Violet rays is too low to harm your eyes.   At dawn, the negatively charged pineal and the positively charged pituitary combine their essences to create a "light in the head".

Pranayama ( deep breathing ) floods the Pineal gland with oxygen, to make it resonate. If you are right handed you must breathe in via the left nostril. The reddish grey pineal gland is located in the geometric center of the brain.  It is located directly behind the eyes.

In Vedic times 10000 years ago, at the banks of the Saraswati river, the crystallised pineal gland of the great Masters was said to be the size of a lemon, and this with evolution, spiritual pollution and change in breathing patterns , has now been atrophied to the size of a very small pea.

In Mahabharata war of 4000 BC, Sanjaya , with awakened Kundalini and 12 DNA strands , sits hundreds of miles away from the scene of battle and gives the blind King Dhritarashtra a blow by blow account.

This gland can be activated by activated by sunlight ( sun gazing ) , and also by sound resonance ( mantra chanting ) during Surya Namaskar. .  It controls the various biorhythms of the body.The pineal gland calcifies with age and melatonin production correspondingly decreases.

When the pineal gland does not receive sunlight, it secretes Melatonin, which induces sleep, increases blood sugar, craze for food, leading to obesity, fears

Stop gazing directly at the sun when you feel uncomfortable and resume when you feel you can look again.  This timing must be built up day by day.   When you do Surya Namaskar, you must be bare footed and  if possible be bare chested.  Being bare chested increases the sex hormones.  

Stillness or steadiness of the eyes is not required, and so you can blink .  Do not wear any lenses or glasses while sungazing.  Have the firm belief that the sunrays in our eyes are of immense benefit and will not harm you .  As the days pass and you are able to look at the sun for more time, you will find find that you don’t eat too much . 

Physical and mental diseases will start getting cured.  Each day more energy blockages will be dissolved.  70 to 80% of the energy synthesized from food is taken by the brain and is used up in fueling tensions and worries.  With a lack of mental stress, the brain does not require the same amount of energy as before. 

As you proceed in sun gazing and as your tensions decrease the need for food intake goes down.  Hunger comes because of energy requirements of the body, which is a must for its existence.  Food is not a necessity for the body to function, only energy is.

You develop a corona of energy around you. As this energy field becomes stronger, diseases don't harm you. The sun is the force of all life, and staring at it can infuse the body with large amounts of energy. Sun gazing also has the added advantage of getting vitamin A and D during the 1-hour safe period window.

When sunlight enters the brain, through your eyes , your good qualities come into appearance replacing negative ones.  Eyes receive the entire spectrum of the sunlight while sungazing, which is distributed to the different parts of the body by the brain on a need per basis.  Sungazing causes the secretion of “feel good” hormones serotonin beta-endorphins, and dopamine.

Hunger comes because of energy requirements of the body, which is a must for its existence. Food is not a necessity for the body to function, only energy is. . For many people, eating seems like a good solution when there's nothing better to do.

Ancient Vedic scriptures tell us the quickest way to charge the bodies cells is by sungazing.  Take away the sunlight and all life on earth would soon perish.  Deprived of sunlight, man loses physical vigor and strength and will develop a disinclination for activity. 

Feed two animals the same diet but keep one in a dark closet and allow the other to be out in the sunshine. The animal that's kept in the closet will be weak, stunted and die prematurely.

Fruits and plants have the ability to trap and store sun energy. We get our energy from eating fruits , veggies and plants.

Surya is one of the principal vedic deities. He is pictured as riding across the sky on a chariot pulled by seven horses.  Seven horses and the seven colors of light for each of the seven chakras. The pineal gland (third eye) is equipped with photoreceptor cells.  



The rays of the sun with seven VIBGYOR colors have a cure for all kinds of diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's,  obesity,  arthritis,  osteoporosis, cancer and others. 

During surya Namaskar, the pineal secretes not only DMT, but other peptides as well that have psychoactive effects.  Vitamin D directly from the sun, is an excellent healing agent.

Surya namaskar needs the rising sun at low altitude with a grateful frame of mind.  

In Kerala some stupid evangelists started Jesus Namaskar doing the same physical asana with Jesus Christ’s photo in front sans breathing and sans the mental mantras .  


A dalit Christian convert, a darling of the Italian waitress  and a member of the National Monitoring Committee for Minority Education  John Dayal spAke  “Yoga, as it is currently practiced in India, is not merely a physical exercise.  It has a strong component of faith to it. Some of the exercises, such as surya namaskar, have a strong religious overtone. … It is not possible to purge religious tones from yoga”

Readers must know the purpose of chanting Sanskrit mantras as a prayer.

http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2014/03/beej-mantra-anuswaram-nasal-sound.html


A muslim Mohammad Salim, national secretary of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, a Sunni Muslim organization in India, spAke  “ Muslims will not accept yoga as a compulsory subject.  Some forces are using yoga to strengthen their agenda of cultural nationalism.  Yoga can’t be made compulsory in India, which is a secular democracy.” 

So don’t do it !   

Who cares ?


Doing Jesus Namaskar does NOT work .

The solar wind at dawn, charges the earth’s magnetic field,  and stimulates the pineal gland.  This is the best time to meditate , chant and sun gaze as the level of Ultra Violet rays is too low to harm your eyes.   

At dawn, the negatively charged pineal and the positively charged pituitary combine their essences to create a "light in the head".


During the Mahabharata war 6000 years ago, it was a terrific scene to see two opposing camps do Surya namaskar  and then pick up their weapons.


Serotonin receptors are activated by DMT and serotonin receptors regulate heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, pupil diameter.  DMT is a small molecule and is a  brain food that is rapidly transported across the blood brain barrier.  Infrared light is not visible to the human eye, it can be felt as heal.   

Far Infrared (FIR) penetrates below the skin and increases blood flow and improves white blood cell function.  FIR light helps remove toxins from the body and speeds the healing of tissues. FIR increases the metabolic rate and stimulates the hypothalamus.  Infrared lights are used to warm newborn infants in hospitals. 

Far infrared helps burn calories and reduce obesity. Improved blood flow to the lymph reduces inflammation.  FIR can remove a wide variety of metals from the body, including lead, arsenic, mercury, copper, cadmium, urea, nicotine, and the residue of prescription drugs.

The amount of serotonin produced by the brain was directly linked to prevailing sunlight duration.  A person low in Serotonin will be inclined to consume greater amounts of sugar in an attempt to increase Serotonin production and this may lead to sugar addiction.

Sunlight exposure decreases adrenaline and noradrenalin levels, reducing their stressing effect, and releases endorphins, which promote the feeling of "well-being".  It also increases vitamin D level.  The principal male hormone, testosterone, is known to be produced by the effect of sunlight on the skin.

Melatonin levels decreased in some of the blind patients when they were exposed to light, even though they couldn't see that light.  But when the researchers blindfolded these patients and then turned on the lights, melatonin levels did not drop.   Those findings suggest that although their eyes could not sense light in the normal way, they still were somehow regulating the release of melatonin, providing absolute evidence that the eyes are involved in functions other than vision.

Sunlight has the highest ratio of near-infrared light at sunrise ( Surya Namaskar time ) when the ultraviolet and blue radiation are scattered while red and infrared are passing through the atmosphere. That's why the sun is red at these moments, which are the best for improving the vision.

Near-infrared wavelengths can boost the activity of mitochondria, the crucial powerhouses in cells. When the sun is high in the sky with plenty UV in the light, the eyelids act as filters, letting only the infrared light to reach the retina. Blood exposed to infrared light had less blood cell aggregation (clumping together) which would free up more surface area of red blood cells to transfer nutrients and oxygen to tissues.

Surya Namaskar increases cardiovascular fitness.  This is a  a combined measure of a number of different parameters, such as resting pulse, rise of pulse after exertion, blood pressure lying and standing, rise in blood pressure after exertion, and time for pulse rate to return to normal after exertion. 

Sunbathing also increases the ability of the lungs to absorb more vital oxygen, as well as the blood's capacity to carry and deliver it. Oxygen deficiency has been readily linked to a host of illnesses and discomforts ranging from chronic fatigue to cancer.

Sunlight speeds up the clearance of toxins from the body several times. It catalyses digestion. Pathogenic bacteria is destroyed by sunlight. Before the advent of antibiotics people used sunbathing and sungazing.  Vitamin D of sunlight prevents colon cells from proliferating and prompts them to change into more mature cells which are less capable of becoming cancerous.   

The same process occurs in breast, skin and prostate cells.  Exposure to natural sunlight increases the number of the white blood cells in the body.  The main white blood cell increased the most is the lymphocyte. It is the lymphocyte that plays the leading role in defending the body in an invasion by bacteria and foreign organisms.

Because the lymphocytes increase in number after a sunlight exposure, their products of defense, the antibodies like gamma globulins, also increase in the blood. This increase of lymphocytes and gamma globulins greatly increase a person's ability to fight infections.

The lymphocyte is also capable of producing a substance called interferon. This substance has the ability to stop the reproduction of viruses. The ultraviolet light in sunlight increases the enzymes that metabolize toxic chemicals and help to remove them.  There are receptor sites for vitamin D on cancer cells that appears capable of converting human leukemia cells back into normal cells.  

Vitamin D produces a thirty percent improvement in body's conservation of proteins. The ultraviolet rays from the sun convert skin oil to vitamin D.  Sunlight lowers the level of cholesterol in the blood stream in humans

Infertility is associated with low vitamin D.  Vitamin D supports production of estrogen in men and women.  PMS has been completely reversed by addition of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D. Menstrual migraine is associated with low levels of vitamin D and calcium.

The excess of melatonin cause alcoholism and whitens the skin.  When melatonin was injected into rats turned them into alcoholics.  People from northern countries have increased melatonin, during the winter time, due to the weak sunlight, and that’s the reason they have a particular preference for alcohol..  

Women with a calcified pineal gland (associated with a low production of melatonin) have a significantly greater risk of developing breast cancer.  Breast, prostate, skin and colon cancer have a strong association with low levels of D and lack of sunlight.  Most men will develop prostate cancer if they live long enough and lack of vitamin D is a major cause.  

Men who live in colder climates have a higher incidence of prostate cancer because they get less sunlight.   Vitamin D inhibits the growth of new, undesirable blood vessels that tumors require for nutrient supply and growth.  

The world is coming back to Hinduism-- it took this quantum age to understand 7000 year old shepherd's verses , right?  These divine Vedic verses were handed over orally and learnt by heart from 30000 BC to 5000 BC.

The ancient Indian Dvau Bhuja Karanam has now been stolen and patented by the immoral west as “ Super brain Yoga “.


Pranayama— where you exhale twice as long as inhale  — IS MORE ABOUT DUMPING OLD EXPERIENCES, RATHER THAN MERE OXYGENATION OF BLOOD.

It is always starts with the left nostril for right handers – for left handers it is vice versa ( no book on pranayama talks about this ) .. Left handed people have their sub-conscious in the left lobe of the brain.
  
Breathe in the new , breathe out the old. Pranayama—inhale and exhale with awareness— long exhales with the sound of MMMMMMMMMMMM. 

Humming boosts level of nitric oxide—this in turn ups the oxygen intake by 98%, the biggest secret . 

Ordinary breath is a mere 4%.

It is amazing Nitric oxide was discovered by Indian yogis 11000 years ago.  For re-inventing this a Nobel prize was given 2 decades ago. nitric oxide is necessary for-

1. Destruction of viruses, parasitic organisms, and malignant cells in the airways and lungs by inactivating their respiratory chain enzymes.
2. Regulation of binding - release of O2 to hemoglobin.
3. Vasodilation of arteries and arterioles (regulation of blood flow or perfusion of tissues).
4. Inhibitory effects of inflammation in blood vessels.
5. Hormonal effects. Nitric oxide influences secretion of hormones from several glands (adrenaline, pancreatic enzymes, and gonadotropin-releasing hormone)
6. Neurotransmission. Memory, sleeping, learning, feeling pain, and many other processes are possible only with NO present (for transmission of neuronal signals).

Obviously, during mouth breathing it is not possible to utilize one's own nitric oxide which is produced in the sinuses. The mouth, was created by Nature for eating, drinking, and speaking. At all other times, your trap should be shut. When there is lack of oxygen in your blood , you living to a small percentage of your potential.
  
Endurance exercise can increase oxygen utilization from 10 to 20 times over the resting state. This greatly also  increases the generation of free radicals, which can cause cancer.

Metabolism, or, more accurately the metabolic rate of the cells, sets the demand for oxygen. At rest, a human consumes about 250 millilitres of oxygen each minute. With exercise this rate can be increased more than 10-fold in a normal healthy individual, but a highly trained athlete may achieve a more than 20-fold increase..

Muscle can do more work, but beyond the aerobic scope they must revert to anaerobic metabolism, which results in waste products, mainly lactic acid. Various mental processes in old people are also found to be improved by breathing oxygen. Any slowed induction of protein synthesis, as from lower oxygen intake, with age is a factor in the deficits of learning and memory of old people.

70% of toxins in your body are released by exhalation— rest by sweat, defecation and urine— surprised? The mind is intimately connected to your breathing. Deep breathing triggers the lymph, your body’s sewage system which will give your cells more efficiency. It keeps the blood fully oxygenated. 

Breathe in the ratio 1/4/2.

Because oxygen is vital to life, the body and brain are extremely sensitive to even very small reductions . This is why exercise must be done at least ONE hour after a meal or oxygen required for digestion is used by muscles leading to indigestion and cramps. 

Stress, fear and anxiety causes muscles to contract and blood vessels to constrict. When blood cannot be transported freely through the body to provide oxygen, and antibodies and to carry away and dispose toxic wastes, illness sets in.


Mind is non material , but it works in partnership with communicator molecules. With every thought mind moves atoms of hydrogen, carbon , oxygen and other particles in the brain .

Knowing the connection between breath and consciousness, the ancient yogis devised PRANAYAMA to stabilise energy and consciousness.  All that vibrates in this universe is the cosmic personality and prime mover Prana, potent in all living beings and non-living beings --- heat, light, gravity, magnetism, vigor , power , vitality,life, spirit.

 When a man is contented and happy , he has more Prana inside him. Anxiety vanishes entirely when you are one with the rest of the universe. When your mind is disturbed the fundamental energy Prana leaks . Pranayama just reverses the process. 

Yoga says that longevity depends on slow diaphragmic breathing. People who do Pranayama regularly have quieter nerves , less lethargy , better sleep and lower BP.  It prevents accumulation of Uric acid which gives joint pains.

Fluctuations of mind are controlled and hence Pranayama prepares you for meditation.

Pranayama was created by the vedic sages who lived on the banks of the river Saraswati in 9000 BC.
Sage Agastya had taught Surya namaskar to Lord Rama just before his fight with Ravana in 4300BC. asically you are greeting a new day with a grateful heart. It is done in open air.

The benefits are:--

1)  You raise your consciousness
2)  Develop inner peace
3)  Rekindle your drooping spirit
4)  Detoxification of body and mind
5)  Your face glows --balance of mind, body and spirit.
6)  Mental clarity and concentration
7)  Raise your immunity
8)  Reduces biological age.
9)  Centring yourself and stoking your inner flame
10)  Gratitude and communion with self

Let me digress –

Recently we had an little piece of turd by the name of Chetan Bhagat insulting Swami Ramdev at the India Today Conclave. 

You must know that our main stream media is funded and remote controlled by Big Brother.

Now Chetan Bhagat has a mediocre brain – the type we call "small caliber big bore".

Since he worked for Rothschild’s controlled Goldman Sachs , he has always been  pushing the sinister agenda of the Banking Cartel. No wonder he automatically got included in Rothschild controlled Time Magazine’s  100 Most Influential People .

He was all over TV pushing FDI in multibrand retail. 

Chetan Bhagat has self conferred the mantle on himself as “Indian Youth Ambassador”.  You should see this to believe .

Every TV show he would cry “This is NOT what young India wants !!”

And then he would push his foreign funded agenda “ Indians want jobs in Walmart and FDI stores , homosexuals want their rights BLAH BLAH “. 

His useless low IQ blogs would appear on Rothschild controlled newspapers and magazines.

Now—


At the India Today conclave he picked on a fellow guest --a respected Yogi . He insulted him. As if on cue the yuppies in the audience would giggle loudly in sarcasm.

Chetan Bhagat ridiculed Swami Ramdev’s claim that he can cure homosexuality with Yoga .
He thundered at Ramdev  “ So, what is wrong with homosexuality?  You'll take India back to the 16th century .  Your values are all wrong!” 

CLAP CLAP  from the ch00tiya ( sorry- cant see another apt word ) yuppie audience attired  in suit , tie and boot.

Yoga can cure much greater things than homosexuality.

In modern science anything which the doctors do NOT know is branded a genetic disorder.

  
Yoga Master the late K Pattabhi Jois,died at the age of 93.

Pattabhi Jois starts his classes 10 ten Surya Namaskars.  Like the name itself suggests , Surya Namaskar has to do with the sun and hence the Pineal gland. 

This super conducting resonator has mystical powers.

Once the third eye ( pineal gand ) is developed it is far more powerful than any of your 5 human senses. If you understand SURYA NAMASKAR which is done at dawn , as soon as the sun rises,   it is nothing but sun gazing while doing yoga. 

Singer Madonna learnt Astanga Yoga from Pattabhi Jois.  Madonna chanted the opening Ashtanga chant on her Ray-of-Light album, and also played an Ashtanga teacher in the movie The Next Best Thing.

Ancient Indian Maharishis had the ability to go on either isde of the narrow 5 bands of human senses.  By resonating their huge pineal glands with their 12 strand DNA they could transcend the limitations of space time. They firmly believed that the invisible below the quantum screen gives rise to the visible.

What does Ashtanga Yoga do for you?

 It improves the feel good factor giving you a natural high, reduces stress , increases vitality,  improves strength and flexibility , improves immune system function, improves blood and lymph circulation, eliminates body toxins, strengthens the cardiovascular system , improves digestion, metabolism and hormone production, gets rid of  depression and anxiety , reduces mind chatter,  improves  concentration, builds patience , gets rid of obesity and sloth, balances body- mind- spirit, and keeps diseases away .

Ashtanga Yoga stimulates the Vagus nerve and the Amygdala to cure many disorders conveniently branded as genetic disorders by modern medicine—just because they do NOT have a clue. 


T Krishmacharya the guru of Pattabhi Jois, stimulated his Vagus nerve and Amygdala to stop his heart beat and control involuntary muscles. 

Below : T Krishnamachari. 

He cured Lord Irwin  , the Viceroy of India from severe mental ( Bipolar ) and physical ailments ( kidney ) . He was about to go back home, when someone told him about Yoga guru T Krishmamachari.  

Grasping at the last straw he summoned this Yogi to his bunglow in Simla and arranged for a room. Within six months Lord Irwin was free of all his ailments ( considered as genetic ) and he was grateful to this Yogi, who did NOT charge any fees.  

Lord Irwin led a full life and died a normal death at a ripe old age--  34 years later.


The Vagus nerve is the longest nerve in the human body.  It extends from within the brain on a winding road throughout the body down through the intestine. 

The Vagus nerve also, just so happens, to be the only nerve in the body that is present through each one of the 7 Chakras. Besides output to the various organs in the body, the vagus nerve conveys sensory information about the state of the body's organs to the central nervous system.  

Vagus nerve regulates the chemical levels in the digestive system so that the intestines can process food and keep track of what types of nutrients are being gained from the food that is taken in. It  keeps the digestive tract in working order, contracting the muscles of the stomach and intestines to help process food, and sending back information about what is being digested and what the body is getting out of it. 

Stems cells are directly connected to the vagus nerve.  Activating the vagus nerve can stimulate stem cells to produce new cells and repair and rebuild your own organs. 

By activating the vagus nerve, you can control your immune cells, reduce inflammation, and even prevent disease and aging! Vagus Nerve can be activated and stimulated by Yoga -- and worked with energetically through chanting mantras, divine geometry like Sri Yantra and longitudinal wave frequency.

Vagus nerve acts as the mind-body connection, and it is the cabling behind your heart’s emotions and gut instincts. Without the functions of the vagus nerve, you would find it difficult to speak, breathe, or eat, and your heartbeat would become extremely irregular.

An underactive vagus nerve can lead to a condition called gasteroparesis. This condition leads to nausea, heartburn, stomach pains, spasms in the stomach and weight loss due to the digestive system having too little of the chemicals it needs to break down food. An underactive vagus nerve can also lead to a dropping heart rate.

Scientists have discovered that artificial Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS), through electrical impulses via a surgically implanted pacemaker like device, shows promising results in reducing depression, anxieties and conditions such as epilepsy and obesity. 

We are just scratching the tip of the iceberg here, as vagus nerve in conjunction with amygdala stimulation can do wonders. 

Vagus nerve is stimulated when we feel empathy.  When we connect with someone else's emotions and feel for them, the Vagus nerve gets stimulated.  Vagus nerve is attached to emotions, and hence the right lobe of our brain.

http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/04/rape-of-subconscious-mind-capt-ajit.html

The parasympathetic system is pretty automatic and not within that "conscious" control. Sometimes you need to step back and "allow" intelligent conscious morphogenetic energy to flow the way it normally would if you didn't put up a fight or flight.

 Human Beings have an Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) that is the body’s automatic regulatory system of nerves and controls that do all the background tasks that keep the body operating. The ANS is comprised of three separate subsystems, the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS), the Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) and the Enteric Nervous System (ENS).

The Parasympathetic Nervous System is responsible for many of our resting functions such as lowering heart rate, increasing digestive & gland activity and sexual arousal, the Sympathetic Nervous System is mainly associated with modulation of hormones and neurotransmitters relating to “flight or fight” responses.

When things in our life become ‘second nature’, like driving, typing etc they are effectively processed through our ENS rather than our CNS. The cerebrospinal system is the organ of the conscious mind and is the channel through which we receive conscious perception from the physical senses, and exercise control over the movements of the body.

While the cerebrospinal or central nervous system (CNS)  has the brain as its control center, the ENS has a ganglionic mass in the belly known as the Solar Plexus, often referred to as our second brain, as its central processing unit and it is in this coprocessor that most of our everyday tasks get executed from.

 The vagus nerve is the most important element of the parasympathetic nervous system (the one that calms you down by controlling your relaxation response).

When an athlete is said to be ‘in the zone’ and performing at near perfect levels, it is because they are practically and literally almost unconscious and functioning entirely through their ENS.

The Vagus nerve is responsible for speech, swallowing, keeping the larynx open for breathing, slowing heart rate, monitoring and initiating digestive processes, and modulating inflammation, among other actions.


The vagus rerve arises from the medulla in the brain and passes through the skull down within the chest cavity where it branches off in multiple directions to innervate organs and muscles. 85% of the nerve fibers are devoted to sending information from the organs/gut back to the brain.

The Vagus nerve also relays information to the brain from what is known as the Enteric Nervous System (ENS).  The ENS is our "second brain" controlling the digestive process; it is made up of over 500 million neurons that surround the digestive tract.

Like I said before , it is called a second brain because it can function independently from the brain if the Vagus nerve is severed.

Different postures that are adopted during Ashtanga yoga exercise helps in releasing pressure from the delicate nerve fibers. Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) activates anti-inflammatory pathways that work in the digestive tract. 

VNS to be a possible treatment for chronic depression in people that didn't respond to any other treatments . Defects in the normal functioning of Vagus nerve may impair the normal control mechanisms that modulate the gastric acid secretion. 

By deep breathing, you activate the vagus nerve and bring balance between your parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system rn, nausea and weight loss.

All this was known to Ayurveda more than 6000 years ago.  The 108 marma points of  Kalari and Ayurveda were mostly to stimulate the Vagus nerve and the Amydgala..  Pranayama affects the amygdala.

The amygdala is the most sensitive structure and most active structures in the brain. It uses more blood than any other part of the brain. We humans are conscious creatures because we have more amygdala nuclei. 


The amygdala has in turn been implicated in nearly every psychiatric disorder. We don’t have animals with mood swings, and OCD , right?

The amygdala has a substantial role in mental states, and is related to many psychological disorders. Children with anxiety disorders tend to have a smaller left amygdala.

Larger amygdalae allow for greater emotional intelligence, enabling greater societal integration and cooperation with others.

There are functional differences between the right and left amygdala.  Electrical stimulations of the right amygdala induce negative emotions, especially fear and sadness. 

In contrast, stimulation of the left amygdala  mostly induces happiness.  The left amygdala plays a role in the brain's reward system. The amygdala is the seat of emotion. Psychopaths lack emotion. They lack empathy, remorse, guilt. Brain scans of psychopaths show a deformation in the amygdala compared to non-psychopaths.

 It is the amygdala which jolts our bodies in fear,  form emotional memories,  helps us feel our dreams and can shape the effects of certain stress disorders and phobias.
  
The two amygdale sit on the horn-like tips of the hippocampus. They work with our sympathetic nervous system to put the body in a state of “fight-or-flight”. The amygdala has an important role in memory.  It reminds us, for better or worse, of past situations. 

Since it is so emotional, the amygdala is responsible for those persistent thoughts and extra mental baggage we wish we would forget.  It nags us with recollections of painful or shocking events. So when a woman jumps out of her skin with a terrible shriek at the sight of a rat – its is just an example of her amygdala in action!

Stimulating the amygdala by meditation and Pranayama  can help you enter a psychological state of flow. Activating the amygdala in a positive way stimulates higher order mental processes. This can improve creativity and intelligence while elevating positive emotion.

There are also links ( which can be modified ) between homosexuality and the connectivity of the amygdala to the rest of the brain.
  
Homosexuality depends on hormonal factors operating during fetal life and NOT genetics.

No baby is born a homosexual. While the amygdala is almost fully developed at birth, the prefrontal cortex does not mature until early adulthood.
  
Damage to the amygdala can thus result in behavioral deficits such as autism, post traumatic stress syndrome, child abuse, alcoholism, etc. The amygdala is not only sensitive to physical hurt but also to emotional hurt. 

So it is involved in both the basic emotions such as pain, pleasure, fear, disgust, surprise, and anger but also in social emotions, viz., shame, guilt, love, embarrassment, envy, jealousy, and pride.

In this state you can easily overcome problems and disregard distractions. Being in flow on auto-pilot results in single-minded focus and joy that comes from losing yourself in productive activity. Trivial issues don't slow you down when you are actively engaged and living creatively.

The amygdala plays a central role in generating fear in response to external threats. The amygdala receives sensory information from two separate pathways: a short route and a long route.

Like all sensory information, the message is first routed to the thalamus. Then information is sent directly to the amygdala (short route), which produces a fast reaction to the situation. Other information travels from the thalamus through the cortex (visual, auditory, prefrontal, etc.) and then to the amygdala (long route). 

The cortex evaluates the situation, assigns it a meaning, and if the meaning is threatening, then the amygdala is informed and produces the appropriate response.

Gay women and gay men are more likely to be left-handed. The right amygdala is also linked with taking action as well as being linked to negative emotions, which may help explain why males tend to respond to emotionally stressful stimuli physically.  

The left amygdala allows for the recall of details, but it also results in more thought rather than action in response to emotionally stressful stimuli, which may explain the lack of physical response in women.  Gamma-Amino Butyric acid (GABA) is an amino acid which acts as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system.

Astanga Yoga increases  our GABA levels , which reduces stress.  GABA levels and mood are positively affected by yoga practice. Low levels of GABA are linked to depression and anxiety. GABA is the major neurotransmitters in the central nervous system, and especially in the cerebral cortex, which is where thinking occurs and sensations are interpreted. 


GABA is made in brain cells from glutamate, and functions as an inhibitory neurotransmitter – meaning that it blocks nerve impulses.  Glutamate acts as an excitatory neurotransmitter and when bound to adjacent cells encourages them to “fire” and send a nerve impulse. GABA does the opposite and tells the adjoining cells not to “fire”, not to send an impulse.

Without GABA, nerve cells fire too often and too easily.  Anxiety disorders such as panic attacks, seizure disorders, and numerous other conditions including addiction, headaches, Parkinson's syndrome, and cognitive impairment are all related to low GABA activity. 

The less GABA, the more nerve transmissions occur. Depressed and bipolar patients to have lower levels of GABA in their blood plasma.

The lower knowledge is the knowledge of the phenomenal world. In reality it is ignorance, for it does not lead to the Highest Good. The seer of the Upanishads asks the aspirant to acquire both the knowledge of the relative world and the Knowledge of Ultimate Reality. When by the pursuit of the former he fails to attain true freedom and immortality, he cultivates the latter.Mundaka Upanishad Mantra, 2.2.11, 5000 BC

Modern medicine has never looked on the human body as a whole like a Ayurvedic physician.  Allopathic has divided up the body into several part s – the cardiovascular system, the respiratory system, the cellular system, the digestive system, the endocrine system, etc. They do NOT understand the concept of body mind and spirit, which the ancient maharishis envisaged in all their wisdom. 

Meditation is an exercise of the mind and is a part of yoga .  What physical exercise is to the body, meditation is to the mind. 

Silencing the body is easy, but silencing the mind is difficult in this modern age.  Silencing is about grace, harmony and tranquility.  Exhaustion is NOT tranquility.

 In the modern age people get stressed, and they need to still the mind--the chattering monkey, which remains entangled in the past and the imagined future, but never in the present.

 Meditation is about holding your mind to the present.  The aim of every form of meditation is to still the mind, or you cant purify it and get rid of deep rooted negativities , which affect your health and even give you severe migraines.

 Meditation is a surgical operation of your subconscious mind to remove and discard negativity / ego and improve tolerance, grace and kindness.

For a layman-- you are stressed when your hands feel cold, your heart rate, breathing, and muscle tension increases. The result is that your immune system goes for a toss and you get depressed or burnt out.. Depression is a weird feeling of loss .

 Meditation  teaches you to look inwards, with awareness , within yourself and know the true nature of all sensations, and loosen the stranglehold of habits and vices..  He scans his own body and sees where the stress and tension is.

He just witnesses , he does not react.  His mind does not control him, rather he controls his mind.  It is a universal remedy for all universal ills.

Let me talk about Vipasana Meditation-

Find a quiet place to sit for 15 minutes. place where you can sit comfortably, undisturbed, for at least 20 minutes. Background noises like the sound of a car horn or a ticking clock should not be considered hindrances, and in fact can be legitimate objects of mindfulness. 

Don't wear earplugs .  Wear loose clothing  and be bare feet. Sit with your back and head held straight. You may sit on the floor or in a chair. Keep your eyes closed. If you must move, notice how and why you are moving.
  
Simply be mindful of in-and-out breathing. You may feel that your breathing is too short, too long, too gentle or too heavy. Do not try to control it. Stop judging. Just let it be, let it settle by itself as you watch.  It is the process of watching which is the meditation, not what you are watching.

When you become distracted, gently refocus your attention on your breathing. Keep watching. Just breathe... As the abdomen rises, observe the motion from beginning to end with your mind. When the abdomen falls, do the same. That's it. Just keep watching the rising-falling movements. You don't have to do anything to them. Just know the movements without judging or describing them. 

Restrict your attention to what is occurring in the immediate present moment. Don't think about the past or future— don't think about anything at all. Let go of worries, concerns, and memories. Empty your mind of everything except the movements occurring right now. But don't think about the motions; just know them.

In insight meditation the aim is not to think, but only to know.

As the abdomen expands, say the word "rising" in your mind. When it contracts, say "falling." Continue to note rising, falling, rising, falling, from one moment to the next. Ninety-percent of your attention should be on the actual movement instead of on the label. The aim in Vipassana is to know the object itself, not the word. 

The abdomen should not be visualized. You only have to know the movements. Be sure to breathe naturally; don't try to control the breath in any way. A mental note identifies the object in general but not in detail. For example, when a sound pulls your attention away, label it "hearing" instead of car horn," "voices" or "barking dog."

If an unpleasant sensation arises, note "pain " or "feeling" instead of "knee pain" or "my back pain." Then return your attention to the primary object. When aware of a fragrance, say the mental note "smelling" for a moment or two. You don't have to identify the scent.
  
The motto is: "Focus and forget it," or "know and let go."

Healing is NOT a physical process, rather it is mental. Mind can wipe mistakes off the DNA blueprint and destroy any disease that has disturbed the design. DNA's ability to repair itself is affected adversely when a person is in depression.

Meditation experiences silence, and is devoid of drives, wishes, fears , thoughts and emotions. Afterwards when the mind returns to its usual level of consciousness, it has acquired some freedom to move.. Grace and peace are the hallmarks of a healthy non-delusional mind in a healthy body.. The happiness is stable.

We have 5 senses – sight, hearing, smell, taste and feel.    God has given us narrow bandwidths which became even more narrow as our original 12 strand DNA , NIL junk, became degraded to 2 strand , 97% junk.   Probably it is good as stress has become too much in modern times and we do NOT want an overload of sensory inputs.

The ancient Maharishi with 12 strand DNA and a king sized pineal gland could use his body into most amazing uses.  

He could become invisible,  he could zap you with a mental blow, he could put his hand into steam ,  he could see auras and know what you are worth by just looking at you ( no need for written/ oral exams ),  he could teleport his virtual body  ( by the way levitation is NOT the human cadaver jumping up and down ), - -- 

--he could do telepathy , is a stinking place he could neutralise the smell , he could see the entire electromagnetic spectrum,  he could smell better than a blood hound,  he could hear beyond human  audio range ,  he could see complex math as a 3D fractal graph--,

--  he could read akashik records , he could ingest poisons , he could feel your aura and tell what is ailing you etc etc.

Many Christians and Muslims think that prayer can substitute for  meditation.  Sorry !  The former is a petition to  God, and the other is a detached observation of one's own mind, and its processes.

In the modern world, ancient Vedic meditation is used as a non-religious technique for relaxation and stress reduction for long-term psychological improvements.   Meditation is done to purify the mind and gain insight.  It abstracts the self from conscious thought, and frees the mind from feelings that cause stress and suffering.  

It fosters creative intelligence, raise consciousness, and enables fuller use to be made of mental potential.  The spiritual aims are peace of mind, wisdom, and, ultimately, a state of enlightenment or self-realization.  It is a  form of natural healing, and helps people cope with  anxiety, depression, and drug dependence.

The attention is focused on monitoring the breath, and noting thoughts crossing the mind, without any judgement or attempt at control, but as a silent and detached witness.   If the mind throws up distractions, the meditator returns to simply observing the breath each time the distraction happens.   A relaxed and unhurried attitude is important, since slowing down and observing the mind to see how it works is central to the philosophy behind meditation.

Using the mantra technique, the meditator concentrates on a mantra  to banish intrusive thoughts and thus achieve progressively quieter levels of thinking until thought itself is transcended. Mantras are essentially in Sanskrit being a divine language. 

The subtle vitalizing frequencies of mantras activate psychic energies and awaken our intuitive faculties.   The purpose of meditation in modern times is to destress, to stop the destructive mind chatter, for some time in a day--  to STILL THE MIND.

WHEN YOU STILL YOUR MIND,  NO CHEMICALS ARE PRODUCED.  The brain must not be allowed to pump in destructive F&F ( fight & flight ) chemicals into your body, which will shorten your life.

The reason why people remain mired in negativity is because of the beliefs they have inherited over time.  Beliefs are subconscious .

We can use our conscious mind to observe ,to introspect and dip into the subconscious where our beliefs are embedded , in order to eliminate it.  You can meditate, to rewrite these negative programmes that cause you misery.

During meditation thinking is separated from perceiving, so that the individual can stand apart from the emotional self. Indians use meditation to purify the mind and gain insight.   Meditation again, is a detached observation of one's own mind, and its processes, after squelching the 5 senses.

In the modern world, meditation is used as a non-religious technique for relaxation and stress reduction. The spiritual aims are peace of mind, wisdom, and, ultimately, a state of enlightenment or self-realization.  

Chanting mantras have an effect of banishing intrusive thoughts . It does a fantastic job of stopping hyperventilating, and slowing  down your breathing.

Next time you hyperventilate out of panic just try a simple mantra like-

 OM NAMO NARAYANAYA  or   OM NAMA SHIVAYA or  HARI OM


There are now thousands of peer-reviewed scientific papers which explain yoga’s efficacy as a healing modality for diseases as varied as cancer, depression, diabetes, and cardiovascular failure. 

Yoga has never been patented to make money – it was never ever meant to be that way. Yet we find many selfish Gurus patenting their own weird type yoga which does more harm than good. There is BAD KARMA involved and these jet setting Gurus who are sponsored by R controlled UN , with hundreds of branches all over the world , will learn , sooner than later.

The EVIL PHARMA is terribly upset that an ancient Yoga could easily replace billions of dollars’ worth of medications, surgeries, and even chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

Which is the world’s No 1 pilgrimage , far ahead of Kumbh Mela ?  Last year 55 million pilgrims attended .

It is Sabarimala ( Makaravilakku on Jan 15th ) for the 9th avatar of Lord Vishnu Ayyappa.  Foreign Christain evengelists tried to use money power and stop this world’s greatest pilgrimage by building a private airport ( Aranmula ) to kill river Pampa.  Well this blogsite contributed in scuttling this slimy plan.


All pilgrims take a ritual dip in the Pampa river ( now dying ) also known as Dakshina Ganga , before heading to Sabarimala.

Below: Kill the Pampa river to KILL THE SABARIMALA PILGRIMAGE.




IN TEN YEARS OF RULE, THE WAITRESS NEARLY KILLED THE MIGHTY GANGES TOO.   KILL THE GANGES TO KILL HINDUSIM

At Sabarimala MAGIC happens in just 5 seconds.


 Pure awareness is a simple experience  —just a small gap in your thinking when you are without ego -- a small space of nothing—shuniata, while in a FIELD OF CONSCIOUSNESS.   

Deep peace is the side effects of this experience of “no-thing” or “no-thought.”   It is the realization that you are more than your thoughts.  Something is there beyond your mind. 

Quantum entrainment  is a process that instantly gives the body, mind and spirit deep rest and fast healing.   

At Sabarimala it works in seconds.  Yes, pure awareness is the deepest rest you can ever get—and it is so dang easy .

The quantum entrainment seeker does “nothing,” yet everything gets done for him.

When we allow pure awareness to suffuse our consciousness, the magic begins.   Quantum entrainment effectively heals the body, mind, emotions, and spirit and centers you .  



शांभवी मुद्रिकाः कृत्वा आत्मप्रत्यक्षमानयेत।
बिन्दु ब्रह्ममयम दृष्टवा मनस्तत्र नियोजयेत॥

सत्यं सत्यं पुनः सत्यं सत्यामाह महेश्वरहः।
शांभवी यो विज्ञानियात्स ब्रह्म चान्यथा॥

~ घेरंड संहिता

By assuming the position of Shambhavi Mudra a Yogi should see the self.  When the Brahma is seen in the form of a dot he should fix his mind on it and nowhere else.   A Yogi who knows the science of Shambhavi he himself becomes Brahma  and none else.   I, Lord Maheshwara (Shiva), am telling this again and again that this is truth.-   Gherand Samhita ( Hatha Yoga ) 5000 BC

The white invader has kicked forward Gherand Samhita by an amazing 6600 years --thank god that they did NOT claim to have written it like our Vedas .

As per the 7000 year old Vedas,  perception occurs in the gap of alert attention. This is the inner space.  There are many methods to create this gap.  Shambhavi Mudra is the most potent and easiest method.

Negative thoughts  create negative feelings and hence stress and illness.  Our inner voice evaluates, judges, compares and worries.   Most people live with such a tormentor in their head draining them of energy.

It is an awful burden not to be able to stop thinking.  Up to 90 % of most people’s thoughts are meaningless playbacks of old broken “records”.

Silencing the body is easy, but silencing the mind is difficult in this modern age.  Silencing is about grace, harmony and tranquility. Exhaustion or being drugged out of your mind is NOT tranquility.

In the modern age people get stressed, and they need to still the mind--the chattering monkey, which remains entangled in the past and the imagined future, but never in the present.  A person stops thinking either when he is dead or when he has realised. 

When your ego powered mind is chattering like a monkey or the angry sea, you miss the truth.  Truth can be communicated only in silence. For this deep silence you need to have harmony between the mind, body and spirit. 

Shambhavi Mudra synchronizes the 2 brain lobes to create inner balance.  

When the left and right sides of the brain , are in balance the human DNA generates scalar waves.   

When two energy fields exactly cancel out each other the 5th dimension is accessed which is all pervasive and has the power to heal. 

He is now in touch with higher levels or higher dimensions of functioning.  He will have  emotional stability and level headed approach to problems which confront him.  This is a fast,  amazingly simple, drug-free method of stimulating neural pathways in the brain. 

All right, now let me talk about practicals.

Wear loose fitting clothes which does NOT constrict you in any way.  Sit on a smooth surface , in a comfortable meditation pose .  This is to eliminate sense of touch / feeling.

Put your thumbs in your ears and palm your eyes with your middle and fourth finger.

Now do OM CHANT with an audible MMMMMMM ( for production of Nitric oxide ) .

You will feel intense vibrations inside your ear — the cochlea spiral passage resonated to 7.83 hertz ( OM frequency and also earth’s heart beat frequency ) and your brain produces NITRIC OXIDE .

Now select a silent, NOT so bright, cool place space, where there are NO strong smells  .  This is to prevent any input of sense of hearing/sense/ smell .   If you can even feel the clock ticking-put  ear plugs –only if you are a beginner.

Keep the head,  shoulder and spine upright and straight.  And place the hands on the knees in (Jyana Mudra).  

Upright is to keep the spirit level in the inner ear at equilibrium so that your brain lobes get balanced and synchronized.

Shut your eyes.   No need to be cockeyed .

Simply be mindful of in-and-out diaphrgmic breathing where you stomach rises and falls.   You may feel that your breathing is too short, too long, too gentle or too heavy.  Do not try to control it. 

When you become distracted, gently refocus your attention on your breathing.   Restrict your attention to what is occurring in the immediate present moment.  

When you feel you have blocked out all ahara ( feed ) via your senses of smell, sight, hearing and feeling , take a deep breath where you fill your lungs only 90 % and hold it .  Put your tongue on your upper palate and tickle it for just 2 seconds and stop.

Now start exhaling VERY slowly while keeping the tip of your tongue stationary on the roof of your mouth.

Don't think about the past or future— don't think about anything at all.  Let go of worries, concerns , and memories.  Empty your mind of everything. 

To be frank you cannot think even if if want to —I can challenge you on this . 

Do this 3 more times .  This means you inhale again , hold your breath and do the same thing.

Later on you do NOT need to hold your breath and you can do this procedure for LONGER TIME , without ear plugs and your eyes open against a blank far away wall of your room.

Do this exercise 5 times a day.  You must NOT have a full stomach.   You can drink some water before you do this.

This is it !


so simple so fast , right?


India gave this planet prayer, mediation and mantras.

Meditation is NOT prayer !

Prayer silent or loud in vernacular , is NOT the same as chanting mantras in Sanskrit !!

If you do meditation the right way , you mind will NOT control you –rather you will control your mind.

You are stressed when your hands feel cold, your heart rate, breathing, and muscle tension increases.  The result is that your immune system goes for a toss and you get depressed or burnt out.. 

Depression is a weird feeling of loss.  .  DNA's ability to repair itself is affected adversely when a person is in depression.

Depressed people must keep a poster on the wall.

WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DEPRESSED ABOUT ?

Meditation experiences silence, and is devoid of drives, wishes, fears , thoughts and emotions. Afterwards when the mind returns to its usual level of consciousness, it has acquired some freedom to move.. 

Grace and peace are the hallmarks of a healthy non-delusional mind in a healthy body.. The happiness is stable.   A true yogi does NOT need to play with king cobras in front of an audience or drive a Hummer at high speed.  


Yoga is always done in a grateful frame of mind , to thank the universal laws, which sustain this planet.  If you translate any mantra you will find gratitude woven in its warp and weft.

Below: Yoga experts go to the river and pull their intestines out and wash it .


There are cannabinoid receptors in the amygdala. The amygdala has in turn been implicated in nearly every psychiatric disorder.

Mental patients damage themselves further by taking the toxic chemical medicines of evil pharma. Lab rats are NOT conscious creature like human beings. The mental research is all in the wrong direction.

Our tribal adivasis are now being used by foreigners , as lab rats for they do NOT know the meaning of depression. They live in the lap of nature , their needs are simple. They do NOT have negative thoughts and their bodies do NOT have after effects of EVIL PHARMA medicines. Their bodies and brains are unpolluted .

I PREDICT THAT IN THE NEAR FUTURE CANNABIS ( MARIJUANA ) THC EXTRACT WILL PULL THE CARPET FROM UNDER THE FEET OF EVIL WESTERN PHARMA.

BETWEEN YOGA AND CANNABIS MEDICAL EXTRACT ( NO NOT SMOKE IT ) EVERY MENTAL DISEASE AND GENETIC DISORDER CAN BE CURED.

I ASK NARENDRA MODI TO GIVE THE ORDERS ON CANNABIS.

Since I posted below, much has already happened in USA  .

 Why did I put a post on UNTRIAL PRISONERS and give PM Modi a deadline ?  

I talked to a young man who was jailed for several months for having Cannabis on him .  He was just released from jail , he had NO money and I bought a tea and a sweet bun for him .  

So Cannabis is bad for this planet ?

Gay fu#kin' marriages are good ?

Gomutra , the urine of HUMPED cow can do wonders.  Capt Ajit Vadakayil says that human urine ( your own ) is toxic and must NOT be drunk .

Ancient Indians relied on organic Ayurvedic herbs .  Maharishis could see and read human auras . Their writings are full of wisdom.  There is much that the western scientists do NOT know.  

200 years back the most brilliant scientist would have scoffed at what a latest generation android mobile phone can do. Mind you, your own body is the ultimate machine . Only thing is that it has been degraded from 12 strand DNA to 2 strand DNA with 97% junk.  

You own body can heal itself .  Yoga does this for you.  Reiki waves from DNA can also heal others half way around the globe . These healing scalar waves travel faster than light.  A yoga guru who is NOT a healer is incomplete.

Don’t bother about what Albert Einstein said about light being the fastest , though he copied and plagiarized 100% from ancient Indian books.  He has NOT understood what he stole .

Punch into Google search -

ALBERT EINSTEIN SHAMELESS PLAGIARIST VADAKAYIL

So, do NOT shove Einstein down our Indian throats.



My wife who is one level above a Reiki Grandmaster, was asked by a close friend to do reiki for a new born baby who was lying in a incubator along with several of such babies in a distant land – none of these babies had cried or drank milk after they were born.  



(Jesus Christ came to Kerala to learn reiki - he left after 3 years as a yogi and a healer) .

After several days of doing Reiki , suddenly my wife felt the energy being drawn.  Immediately she called up her friend.   Well all rushed to the baby and even the doctors were astounded to see the baby crying loudly for mothers milk..


The western brain ( no pun intended ) is going over the precipice soon.  VARIANT CREUTZFELDT JACOB DISEASE is coming !

 Mark my words .

Capt Ajit Vadakayil does NOT shoot blanks- people who know him will vouch for it ..  

Save yourself using Yoga , and Cannabis.

Below: The girl below also flashes her TWAT , for good measure !   I must admit she has a good tight one , unlike Lunny Seone !!  This is what I call a BONUS !!!




You will never find a yoga expert having BO ( body odour ).  What is the point in dating the most beautiful girl on this planet if she drinks AAARRRRRGHHH .

Sweat by itself is virtually odorless. But when microscopic bacteria that live naturally on your skin mix with sweat, they multiply quickly and raise quite a stink.   

Once to win a wager, I used to wear the same T shirt and socks for TWO months on the ship and challenge anybody to point out bad smell .  I used to hang  it on a hook in the gym. People used to sign on it in secret places , using black board marker so check out if I washed it on the quiet.

Most of the MO ( mouth odour ) comes from her stomach.  Indians are the only ones who scrape the tongue after brushing the teeth. Yoga experts do NOT have dry mouth ( xerostomia).

Saliva is necessary to moisten the mouth, neutralize acids produced by plaque, and wash away dead cells that accumulate on the tongue, gums, and cheeks. If not removed, these cells decompose and can cause bad breath.

What is the point in kissing a gorgeous girl if after that you are gonna puke your guts out ?


Yoga crunches the skeletal muscles unlike other form of exercise .The best part is that the body uses its own weight .  


Skeletal muscles can perform extreme feats of strength for a few seconds but are much less capable during prolonged activity.  Most of the extra energy required during  bursts of activity ( like a short sprint ) cannot come from the oxidative processes because they are too slow to respond.

Instead, the extra energy comes from anaerobic sources: (1) ATP already present in the muscle cells, (2) phosphocreatine in the cells, and (3) anaerobic energy released by glycolytic breakdown of glycogen to lactic acid. 

Skeletal muscle contraction enables our joints to move and allows us to engage in physical activity and exercise.   Glycolysis is a form of anaerobic metabolism.  Glucose, obtained mainly from intramuscular glycogen stores, is metabolized to lactic acid under conditions of short duration, high intensity exercise when oxygen supply is limited.  


Glycolysis provides ATP more rapidly than oxidative metabolism.  Hydrolysis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) provides chemical energy required for the mechanical work of skeletal muscle contraction. Mind you, ATP was discovered by an Indian named Yellapragada.


Because the supply of ATP within muscles is small, metabolic pathways that lead to resynthesis of ATP must be activated to keep pace with demands for continued muscle contraction.  These pathways are either anaerobic (without oxygen) or aerobic (oxygen required).  

ATP is synthesized from adenosine diphosphate (ADP) with energy provided by phosphagens, anaerobic glycolysis, or oxidative metabolism.


If aerobic is Brahma ( Tamas )  , anaerobic is Shiva ( Rajas ) , with Vishnu ( Sattva ) acting as a mediator .   Dance of the opposites with a mediator is DVAITA Vedanta.

http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2013/05/dvaita-vedanta-of-sanatana-dharma-or.html

There are two anaerobic power systems available to the body:---

The Adenosine Triphosphate-Creatine Phosphate (ATP-CP) system, 

and

The anaerobic glycolysis/lactic acid system.

The ATP-CP system is used for efforts lasting less than 10 seconds; while the anaerobic glycolysis system powers efforts longer than 10 seconds, lasting up to a few minutes

Anaerobic training is achieved through: speed and power training

Anaerobic training increases athlete's lactate tolerance the size of the fast twitch muscle fibres.

A higher anaerobic capacity enables an athlete to:  Perform at a higher intensity over a specific distance—and, when required maintain a high intensity for a longer period of time

Below: Usain Bolt (like Carlos Tevez ) is my hero ! Everybody on this planet can run-- and he is the best !



 Usain Bolt is a 100 metres world champion because he does ANaerobic training - the Adenosine Triphosphate-Creatine Phosphate (ATP-CP) system.

While running 400 metres his body switches to the anaerobic glycolysis/lactic acid system.

A marathon runner—after breasting the tape takes his victory lap in a totally different mode.

Both the ANaerobic and aerobic systems are utilized during training and athletic performance.

Below: Usain Bolt and the ALSO RANS !



Both the anaerobic and aerobic power systems are important to the athlete and each needs to be trained to optimize their athletic performance.   

All muscle work is powered by ATP. Muscles use ATP as an energy source.

ATP is created in essentially two ways. One is by aerobic metabolism using oxygen carried in the bloodstream. This is a sure and steady way to create virtually unlimited sources of energy; however, it has a limit on how fast it can work.

The athlete has to ensure that they train both power systems to maximize their athletic performance. The anaerobic system is utilized in all-out efforts of exercise lasting up to 50 seconds. 

 The aerobic system, also known as aerobic glycolysis, powers continuous steady state exercise for longer time.  Aerobic training increases aerobic capacity through adaptations to the athlete's oxygen transport and utilization systems.  

Aerobic glycolysis is dependent upon the athlete's aerobic capacity, which is their functional capacity for oxygen transport (i.e. distribution of oxygen rich blood to body tissues) and utilization (i.e. ability of muscle to use available oxygen to produce energy.

Trained marathon runners have a greater ability to quickly deliver oxygen to the working muscles which increases the ability to use aerobic metabolism at a higher exercise intensity.  

During intense power exercise, such as fast 100 metres sprinting or lifting heavy weights, muscles rely on anaerobic metabolism, which can only produce a certain amount of energy at a time, unlike the aerobic metabolism system, which can produce energy over hours like for a marathon runner .

A good sports coach is NOT a rustic CHOOT who gets Dronacharya awards without knowing the science behind athelete training.   He would have NEVER heard of VO2 max and how to increase athletic performance.  

BHAG  BHOSADIKE type of coaching cannot secure world records .


In the aerobic system energy (ATP) is produced through Pyruvic Acid and Lipid/Protein fragments entering the Kreb Cycle and the Electron Transport Cycle. Creatine phosphate (CP) is stored in larger amounts than ATP and can rapidly resynthesis ATP anaerobically. Breakdown of CP within skeletal muscle occurs quickly during high intensity exercise.


Glycolysis is a form of anaerobic metabolism.  Glucose, obtained mainly from intramuscular glycogen stores, is metabolized to lactic acid under conditions of short duration, high intensity exercise when oxygen supply is limited.  Glycolysis provides ATP more rapidly than oxidative metabolism.

The cardiovascular system is limited in its ability to quickly deliver blood and oxygen to the working muscles.  Because of this, during high intensity exercise, ATP is also provided by anaerobic metabolism that don't require an ongoing supply of oxygen.  Anaerobic pathways can provide ATP immediately, but they also have limited stores that need to be refilled after they are used up.


Yoga is far better than tai chi to improve balance and prevent falls in older adults.  Poor Chinese oldies do NOT even know why they  do tai chi.

Below: Tai chi does NOTHING for the aged , like Yoga-  to reduce inflammation and help out in  urinary incontinence.

Yoga is a low impact exercise and that is why it is great for senior citizens with joint problems.

Yoga understands that that the heart is more than just a pump for blood . The heart sends messages to the brain, and the brain obeys. 

Real yogis can stop the heart at will.  T Krishamachari was chosen by Viecroy Irwin only because he could stop his heart or make it flutter fast and this impressed him.

The heart can inhibit or facilitate the brain’s electrical activity. I read in the newspapers a couple of day ago that it takes 3 months to heal a broken heart .  Increasing the energy of the heart and thymus helps to address the emotional issues associated with a ‘broken heart.’   

When our thymus is compromised, we go on a self destructive path .  It damages the immune system which can no longer fight off viruses or bacteria .  Anything the western doctors do NOT know that claim that it is genetic disorder or that the immune system is attacking the body cells. Yes- the dog ate the homework , we know !


An amazing nervous system intrinsic to the heart consists of more than 41,000 neurons which allow the heart to learn, feel, sense, remember, and even make functional decisions without the full consent of the brain.  People who know the art of quartz crystal dousing of the heart chakra know about this.  

Below: The west made fun of Indian sages who could see auras. Then a Kirlian camera changed all that.

When my wife did her reiki grandmaster test , the last test was to douse the gurus body with a quartz crystal.  She found a weak manipura chakra.  The old guru ( a physics professor in his young age ) presented his personal dousing quartz to her .

Asanas of yoga , pranayama and meditation, shore up the the heart’s intelligence instead of that of the mind. The psychological benefits of yoga is unknown to western medicine. Today modern doctors know that yoga can heal the mind by dissipating stress, jealousy, anxiety, fear and negativity. 

Below: Ancient maharishis could see auras and judge from a distance what you are worth -- they did NOT need written exams and orals .  

They sponsored worthy people . Worthless people were told to do unskilled labour.  

Do you really think that a modern 3 hour written test and one hour orals can judge your potential?

Homosexuality which forces people to prey on children - where he/ she will be a different person behind closed doors, is part of this human psychopath negativity. 

Some women pretend to be divya mataji type angels — only their laptop repair man knows what foul pornographic sites they surfed daily ( crashed before deleting history ) and how much dirt lies in their debauched minds.  

Yoga is the only exercise to have the headstand to increase the flow of blood to the brain. Yoga asanas channel blood flow to internal organs selectively.  People who have suffered years of severe migraines found yoga reducing the number of attacks and the pain. Some has migraines stop completely. 

Yoga lowers blood pressure and pulse rate. This is a sure indication of your health getting better and this is NO pseudo science. Asanas increase oxygen flow to body cells.  Yoga improve conditions of irregular heart rhythm.  It has been proved in western hospitals by sheer statistics that yoga makes brain stroke recovery faster .  

Yoga reduces sodium levels and increases level of red blood cells.  For diabetics it helps reduces blood glucose levels. Western women know how Yoga relieves discomfort associated with menstruation and menopause.

Women who want natural delivery of children go to yoga centres.  Women do NOT want caesarian delivery any more.  Babies  born by cesarean section are six times more likely to be sensitive to dust mite allergens than babies born naturally.  

The Babies who are born via C-section have a different microbiome in their gastrointestinal tract.  A microbiome is what scientists use to describe the bacteria communities that reside in humans, whether it's in our mouths, on our skin or in our digestive system.

In human beings, bacterial cells outnumber human cells 10 to 1.  These bacteria are important -- we couldn't exist without them.

In the womb, babies are sterile.   When they go through the birth canal, they get exposed to the entire bacteria population of their mother's vaginal and GI microbiomes.  Through this exposure, their own immune systems learn the difference between good and bad bacteria -- i.e. what to fight off and what to use. READ THIS PARA A THOUSAND TIMES.

Now you know why the west is inundated by allergy problems. Our ancient maharishis knew of all this thousands of years ago. In Hindu culture when a baby boy is born, the father does NOT handle the boy till the 16th day.

In ancient days , on the 16th day , the father will get up before daybreak, and take a bath in clean  water infused with a few drops of ganges river water ( for  bacteriophages  ) . He will then squeeze a few drops of water from his Kudumi into the baby’s mouth.  Only then he will lift the child and cuddle and kiss him for the first time.

Digression:  Bacteriophage, is a virus,  any of a group of viruses that infect bacteria—it literally means  “bacteria eater”.  A British bacteriologist by the name of Dr Ernest Hankin found that colonies of cholera bacteria that thrived in ground water quickly died in Ganges water.   Even today the polluted Ganga that kills pathogens twenty-five times faster than any other river.  Bacteriphages can eliminate the bacteria in the water.

Below: Bacteriophage from Ganges river .


The water wrung out of the wet Kudumi is charged with human spirit ,  basically scalar energy.  This is also a method to introduce some bacteria from the father into the baby. The mother has already transferred her body bacteria while doing NATURAL delivery.

Yoga uses the boys own weight. So what is so smart about that? Hey, stupid—the body will never crysh under its own weight . That is why ! And it tones every muscle and ligament in ZE process. 

 Yoga does NOT require any equipment and special clothing / footwear ..  It does NOT need weights or exercise equipment.  You can do yoga anywhere under the skies.  

It is a great boon for prisoners.  They can come out healthier than they went in, even with the meager prison food.  When a situation occurs, a normal person will react to the situation either positively or negatively.  On the other hand, a yoga practitioner will accept the situation calmly, analyze the situation with a calm and composed mind and try to learn a  lesson from it instead of reacting to the situation in a negative way.

Yoga is self-regulating, so you’ll find the more complex poses too hard to maintain if your circulation is not up to the mark. But as you stick with it you’ll notice that you can do more poses, and that you can hold them longer without getting tired.  This is a sign that your circulation is improving!   

The benefits of good blood circulation can range from being less likely to have a blood clot to being more likely to get and sustain a hop –nay- erection  .  

As you tone and build lean muscle, your metabolism increases .You burn calories in the act of performing the poses.  Once you get into yoga you automatically eat healthy foods . 

Your body mass gets reduced.  Students of yoga get all the answers in a meeting as the increased blood flow leads to better memory and perception.

Yoga can stave off diseases like Alzheimers and other mental disorders.  The white man knows that his race is hurtling head on towards the deadly brain disease VARIANT CREUTZFELDT JACOB DISEASE.

Yoga has the ability to lower blood sugar levels.  Yoga holds the power to transform our minds as much as it does our bodies. Yoga improves dexterity and hand to eye coordination . You get more creative and imaginative.

When yoga can help people manage bipolar disorder , homosexuality kaun sa khet ka beet root hai ?  Yoga has the ability to help you to evolve . A person evolves physically and spiritually when connected with yoga. 

The more you  practice yoga, the more life comes under control.  Yoga is NOT like taking a walk or being a weekend warrior in the gym.  Nobody will do yoga one day and leave it the next.  It is an evolution and does not happen overnight.  The more one continues yoga,  the more one will evolve. The results makes yoga appealing . It is a happy exercise.

No yoga student tries to show off like a person in a gym trying toshow off his biceps and six pack.  The results are fromwithin.   By yoga hormones can be controlled and when hormones are in balance, the body mind and spirit is in balance. No other exercise impacts the hormones as yoga.

In the west they have done statistical yoga experiments  on patients with  atrial fibrillation12 (irregular heartbeat)—a condition in which the upper chambers of your heart quiver chaotically, with huge success .  

Yoga increases energy, alertness , mental clarity and and focus by improving circulation of oxygen and nutrient rich blood . This improves improves your posture which directly affects your breathing by increasing our oxygen levels and energy.

Improved functioning of you immune system,  thyroid (metabolism),  circulatory and respiratory systems will result in fewer sick days, decreased vulnerability to infections and improved sleep patterns.   

In the west , the doctors recommend officially yoga to combat hypertension and high blood pressure in patients with heart disease. When the endothelium ( lining of the blood vessels ) becomes irritated, it becomes a contributing factor to cardiovascular disease . Yoga has the ability to reduce stress hormones such as cortisol can help ease tension on the lining to decrease risk of heart attack or stroke.

Shirsasana ( head stand ) uses gravity to drive the blood where it lacked flow. Good blood flow to the head makes you look younger. 

My father did shirshana almost till he died .  He was a member of RSS before Indian Independence.  Yoga was a daily morning thing. .. When he died at the age of 78 his glowing face did NOT have a single wrinkle .  All his teeth were intact.  He had a heavy crop of silver hair.  

Blood that concentrates and passes through the location of the thyroid gland massages and stimulates it. The thyroid secretes thyroxin which controls the metabolic rate of the body.  Systems of the body are free from gravitational pull reversing the effects of aging and rejuvenate the whole system as all the organs, limbs.  Headstand improves your mental clarity. 

Included in the physiological benefits are the drainage of blood and lymph which are held in reserve in the legs. Any inversion, when the legs are held over the heart, helps to move stored fluids into the core for oxygenation, filtration and elimination of metabolic /cellular wastes 

Shirsasana the "king of all asanas" because of its positive effects on your body, mind and spirit.  Freshly oxygenated blood stimulates your pituitary and pineal glands to calm and revitalize your mind. Sirsasana  strengthens your lungs and helps relieve colds, cough, sinusitis, sore throat and asthma. 

This upside-down pose aids digestion, especially if you are suffering from constipation.  You can lengthen your spine and ease pressure on your lower back. Sirsasana deepens and calms your breathing because of the increased pressure on your diaphragm.   

It causes  the breath to slow down, the blood absorbs more oxygen, which benefits your brain and inner organs as it nourishes cells and tissues.


Shirsasana brings your attention to alignment and balance.  By rooting firmly in your foundation, the crown of your head, you can lengthen your spine and ease pressure on your lower back.  Engage your neck muscles to relax your jaw and vocal muscles.  As a heating pose, shirsasana prepares you for back bends.


Asanas should be practiced slowly and held for a certain period of time in order to affect the glandular secretions of the endocrine system .. 

Without yogic intervention, the thymus tends to shrink as we age.


The thymus gland, located behind your sternum and between your lungs, is only active until puberty. After puberty, the thymus starts to slowly shrink and become replaced by fat.

Thymosin is the hormone of the thymus, and it stimulates the development of disease-fighting T cells. The thymus gland will not function throughout a full lifetime, but it has a big responsibility when it’s active—helping the body protect itself against autoimmunity, which occurs when the immune system turns against itself.  


Therefore, the thymus plays a vital role in the lymphatic system (your body’s defense network) and endocrine system.

Before birth and throughout childhood, the thymus is instrumental in the production and maturation of T-lymphocytes or T cells, a specific type of white blood cell that protects the body from certain threats, including viruses and infections. The thymus produces and secretes thymosin, a hormone necessary for T cell development and production.

The thymus is special in that, unlike most organs, it is at its largest in children. Once you reach puberty, the thymus starts to slowly shrink and become replaced by fat. By age 75, the thymus is little more than fatty tissue. Fortunately, the thymus produces all of your T cells by the time you reach puberty. 

Thymosin stimulates the development of T cells. Throughout your childhood years, white blood cells called lymphocytes pass through the thymus, where they are transformed into T cells.


Once T cells have fully matured in the thymus, they migrate to the lymph nodes (groups of immune system cells) throughout the body, where they aid the immune system in fighting disease. 

Though the thymus gland is only active until puberty, its double-duty function as an endocrine and lymphatic gland plays a significant role in your long-term health. 

Kurmasana ( tortoise pose ) stimulates the Thymus gland – just one of several asanas.


Yoga stretches the muscles and ligaments . Poses held for a minute can be stressful.  But the practitioner remains calm during this uncomfortable period.  

It is this deliberate and cheerful calm during discomfort or even pain that create yoga's greatest neurobiological benefit.  

Before, the stress response in the nervous system is triggered reflexively by discomfort and disorientation. The twisting of your spine, the lactic acid building up in your straining muscles, the uneasy feeling of being upside down, the inability to breathe free , are all different forms of discomfort and disorientation.  

All this tends to lead reflexively to anxious thinking and activation of the stress response in the entire nervous system.  However, just because this response is automatic, does not mean it is necessary.   It is, in fact, just a habit of the brain.   

One of the main purposes of yoga is to retrain this habit so that your brain stops automatically invoking the stress response.



Under any real stressful circumstance you can attempt the same calming techniques: breathing deeply and slowly, relaxing your facial muscles, clearing your head of anxious thoughts, focusing on the moment.  Applying these techniques to real life is what yoga is all about.

Yoga pays attention to the present moment and calms the mind.  Over time you will start to retrain your automatic stress reaction, and replace it with one more conducive to overall well-being.

Yoga cuts out emotional eating. You stomach is bloated like a balloon yet you want to raid the fridge.
Stress causes binge eating. People eat when frustrated, lonely or bored.  

Food not only meets the basic physical need but also social, emotional and psychological needs . Emotional eating is when you eat for reasons other than for hunger.


Over time, compulsive overeating usually leads to obesity. Obesity, in turn, causes numerous medical complications, including:

Type 2 diabetes
Gallbladder disease
High cholesterol
High blood pressure
Heart disease
Certain types of cancer
Osteoarthritis
Joint and muscle pain
Gastrointestinal problems

Sleep apnea

Accumulation of visceral fat correlates with insulin resistance, whereas subcutaneous fat deposition correlates with circulating leptin levels

Leptin tells your body it's full and ghrelin stimulates appetite.  When you don't sleep, they get all out of whack—this makes your leptin levels decrease and your ghrelin levels increase.  This is why fatsos must have good sleep. The fatso eats  unconsciously – he loves to raid the fridge even when his stomach is bursting full  .

Ghrelin and leptin act on the brain via the hypothalamus . Leptin is secreted primarily in fat cells, as well as the stomach, heart, placenta, and skeletal muscle.  Leptin decreases hunger.  Leptin tells the hypothalamus that we have enough fat in the kitty , so we can eat less or stop eating. 

For weight loss — the more leptin the better. Both insulin and leptin resistance are associated with obesity, and impairment of their ability to transfer the information to receptors is the true foundational core of most all chronic degenerative diseases. 

Diet and exercise are your top allies when it comes to improving insulin/leptin sensitivity, and yoga,  can do that just as well as other forms of exercise.

Yoga can help you kick big-time stress . Yoga gets you to quiet the mind, and it also gives your body an outlet to release energy blocks that may have you stressing out even more . Peace of mind is a state of mental and emotional calmness, with no worries, fears or stress, and yoga helps you to achieve this state.

When you start practicing yoga you’ll be releasing pent up energy that could prevent you from falling asleep, and sleeping soundly once you do get to sleep.  Yoga helps relax your nervous system, which is the part of your body responsible for restful sleep or a night of tossing and turning.  

Regular yoga has shown to be associated with making better food choices. It creates an awareness of the emotional sensations associated with hunger and eating, which is attributed to the mind-body connection gained from practicing yoga.

With its ability to lower blood pressure and heart rate as well as improve respiration, yoga provides you with the means to deal with and resolve anxiety and depression without resorting to expensive medications.

Yoga boosts memory and improves concentration. It is the perfect way to clear your mind and calm your senses. You are able to remember things, concentrate, and perceive much better. .  Yogis have better moods, better anger control, and enhanced mindfulness.  Yoga's mental aspect brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “blissing out.”


Yoga reduces the effects of traumatic experiences. Many white soldiers come to India during vacations to use spirituality and  surgically remove negativity inherited from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). 

Patients who suffer from this mental illness frequently experience nightmares and flashbacks, to name a few of the symptoms. They are unable to have proper REM sleep.   


Modern medicine has NO effect on the underlying factors of PTSD. Most are immune to the mindless approaches of modern medicine.


When in danger, it’s natural to feel afraid. This fear triggers many split-second changes in the body to prepare to defend against the danger or to avoid it. 


This “fight-or-flight” response is a healthy reaction meant to protect a person from harm. But in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), this reaction is changed or damaged. 

Below: I ask Narendra Modi-- have you bothered to check with our own jawans , out of Siachen, Kashmir, Red Corridor, --by a secret  poll?




People who have PTSD may feel stressed or frightened even when they’re no longer in danger.   


PTSD was first brought to public attention in relation to war veterans, but it can result from a variety of traumatic incidents, such as mugging, rape, torture, being kidnapped or held captive, child abuse, car accidents, train wrecks, plane crashes, bombings, or natural disasters such as floods or earthquakes. 

The amygdala kicks into effect here.

Yoga has been shown to be completely effective in reducing or eliminating PTSD symptoms, according to the American Psychological Association.




Yoga is the ONLY  counterattack against the ravages of PTSD.


PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder) sufferers have reduced insular cortex volume.  



Participants who had gained long-term yoga practice have greater cortex volume than control participants who had not practiced yoga.


Health is not a mere absence of disease. It is a dynamic expression of life – in terms of how joyful, loving and enthusiastic you are. Yoga is THE ONLY WAY to calm a mind plagued and ravaged by guilt, jealousy, fear , greed , anxiety , revenge etc.   

Our system is a seamless blend of the body, mind and spirit.  An irregularity in the body affects the mind and similarly unpleasantness or restlessness in the mind can manifest as an ailment in the body.



The mind is constantly involved in activity – swinging from the past to the future – but never staying in the present.  Some are addicted to staring into the rear view mirror. 

The present is food on the table. The past is shit in the sewage tank. The future is unknown.

By simply being aware of this tendency of the mind, we can actually save ourselves from getting stressed in a falthu manner.

Yoga and pranayama helps bring the mind back to the present moment, where it can stay happy and focused..  Yoga can help improve your relationship with your spouse, parents, friends or loved ones, which has been damaged by ego and mind games ! A mind that is relaxed, happy and contented is better able to deal with sensitive relationship matters.

Yoga and meditation work on keeping the mind happy and peaceful.   There is a hidden benefit for a strange bonding with the yoga students who attend classes with you.  This bonding coming out of sub-conscious acceptance lasts a lifetime. This is far better than having a beer club buddy.

Below:  In the yoga class such is the camaraderie that  bank balance , looks , age , skin colour , sex etc does NOT matter. They have shared laughter , social outings and rip-roaring picnics -like small children.  Kindness and grace prevails ( for a change ).


 This is the mission of this blog site . To make you experience the joy of your own being .  To make you place your own conscience on the highest pedestal. To make you trust the GOD within you. People who are plagued by guilt do NOT have good REM sleep.

Why is REM sleep so important?


A beggar sleeping under a tree , if he has better sleep than you, it richer than you. You have a general idea that you spend 38 % of your life on this planet sleeping , right ?

When you do NOT sleep well, sinister apparitions disturb your sleep. You cook up your own ghosts. Do you really think that hit men and butchers who take life , sleep well ?


Yoga and meditation have the power to improve your intuitive ability and gut feeling. This you have to experience yourself. Don’t take my word for it .  When you strengthen your body / mind/ spirit connection , magic happens- you deal with your own emotions .

Do you know that NO human being sheds a tear , except due to SELF PITY ? You may feel you are crying for someone else. You are NOT.  You identify yourself in that pitiable situation and then your cry. 

I knew of a shipping boss, who took a useless manager with him when he started his own company. So once I was having a long drive with him , I asked him-why did you take that SPENT FORCE –nay- dead wood along with you. He said –the moment I announced that I am resigning, he burst into tears .


So I lead him from darkness to light . 

He cried out of self pity !!  

There is NO way any other shipping company will employ this useless man.  Such people do NOT even dare to go to a new restaurant to eat something different for lunch. 

TEE HEEEEE!

There are some cocky character who say that they are COOL CATS.  They say that stress drips off them like water off a ducks back ( one of them is an orangutan anchor on TV )  . 

Stress is usually thought of as an innocuous condition that can be ignored, but it does wreak havoc on your body. Apart from releasing harmful free radicals, it also damages the body’s immunity and leaves you tired , irritable and snappy.  

Here’s where yoga comes in like the knight in silver armour. Not only does yoga help calm the mind but also helps beat the ill effects of free radicals and helps build your immunity.  

There is nothing on this planet better than Yoga for stress management. 

A lot of it has to do with deep long diaphragmatic breathing. Shun these FAKE gurus who teach your PATENTED hyperventilation which screws you up by agitating the nervous system.  Shun these sullen faced English literature graduate Youtube gurus who tell you to utter ridiculous BRZEE mantras .

hi jkvn,

Yogic breathing is essentially deep and diaphragmatic.

Sudarshan Kriya patented by AOL , is hyperventilation  -- which is NOT allowed by ancient  yoga.

It causes martini effect ( nitrogen narcosis ) which is bad for the brains.

Capt Ajit Vadakayil with a technical mind , knows more about these matters than TRIPLE SRI or any other English literature graduate gurus .

To top all this he has patented it and charges money for this course .

Yogic breathing is diaphragmatic breathing, or deep breathing is breathing that is done by contracting the diaphragm, a muscle located horizontally between the chest cavity and stomach cavity.

Air enters the lungs and the belly expands during this type of breathing. This deep breathing is marked by expansion of the abdomen rather than the chest when breathing.

Yogic breathing is relaxing and prevents symptoms associated with stress, like high blood pressure, headaches, stomach conditions, depression, anxiety, etc

Shallow breathing, thoracic breathing, or chest breathing is the drawing of breath into the lungs, by drawing air into the chest area using the intercostal muscles rather than throughout the lungs via the diaphragm.

Shallow chest breathing causes health disorders - anxiety disorders, asthma, hyperventilation, pneumonia, pulmonary edema, and shock.

Conversely anxiety, stress, and panic attacks often accompany shallow breathing.   Ayurveda and Yoga has recorded this in writing 6000 years ago.

TRIPLE SRI patented sudarshan kriya causes Nitrogen Narcosis ( Martini effect ) which damages the brain.

WHEN MY WIFE DID HER SUDRAHSNA KRIYA COURSE , WITH TRIPLE SRI—I HAD ASKED HER TO REPORT BACK TO ME ABOUT CARPOPEDAL SPASMS— WHICH SHE EXPERIENCED .    SHE HAD TO TUCK HEr BODY EXTREMETIES LIKE PALMS AND FEET WITHING HER BODY COCOON TO ALEVIATE THIS CONDITION.

If excess ventilation cannot be compensated metabolically, it will lead to a rise in blood pH.  This rise in blood pH is known as respiratory alkalosis.  

When hyperventilation leads to respiratory alkalosis, it causes a number of physical symptoms: dizziness, tingling in the lips, hands or feet, headache, weakness, fainting and seizures.

In extreme cases it can cause carpopedal spasms (flapping and contraction of the hands and feet). Your body relies on carbonic acid to regulate the acidity of the entire bloodstream. By hyperventilating you remove far too much CO2 from your blood.

The acidity of your bloodstream falls as a result. This has all sorts of nasty effects on your body if it is sustained, not least of which is an interference with nerve transmissions.

Hypocalcemia, which results from hyperventilation, can cause tingling sensations, spasms of the muscles, and even convulsions.   Hyperventilating DOES store extra oxygen.  But you can't necessarily use that extra oxygen, because with low CO2, your blood becomes too alkaline.

Hemoglobin, in an alkaline environment, doesn't want to release the oxygen bound to it.

Anesthesiologists sometimes recommend that their patients hyperventilate prior to putting them under general anesthesia.   Bhastrika yoga which employs voluntary hyperventilation is NOT Vedic Yoga . This is white man’s yoga.

The Martini effect theory developed by divers is that every ten meters (33 feet) of depth is the equivalent of drinking a martini. At 30 meters (100 feet), the depth at which Nitrogen Narcosis becomes noticeable the feeling is said to be the equivalent of having consumed 3 martinis. 40 meters (130 feet) would be 4 martinis, etc.  

Nitrogen narcosis is a neurological impairment caused by excess dissolved blood nitrogen .

I do NOT want to launch into VO2 max and confuse my readers.

BY THE WAY THIS BLOG POST WILL NOT DWELL ON VARIOUS ASANAS.  

THERE IS A GOOD BOOK WRITTEN BY BKS IYENGAR FOR THIS. I CHALLENGE MODERN UN AND R SPONSORED GURUS ( ENGLISH LITERATURE GURUS ) WHO HAVE HUNDREDS OF BRANCHES AROUND THE WORLD,  WHO LAND UP ON TOP 100 OF R CONTROLLLED TIME MAGAZINE --

hi bz,

a lot of yoga was INVENTED by the white invader and kapalbhatti  HYPERVENTILATION is one of these.

In 8000 year old yoga we had Vatakrama kapalabhati, where exhalation is active while inhalation is passive, the opposite of normal breathing.

We had Vyutkrama kapalabhati where water is drunk through the nose and expelled from the mouth .

We had Sheetkrama kapalabhati, the reverse of Vyutkrama kapalabhati, in which water is taken in through the mouth and expelled through the nose.

YOGA DOES NOT SUPPORT HYPERVENTILATION !

Our Vedas caution against it.

Example:
 “Yatha sinho gaja vyadho, bhavedvashya shanaiha shanaiha. Thartheva sevitho vayurnyartha hanthi sadhakam”- Sama Veda 5000 BC

(Just like an elephant, a lion or a tiger can be tamed slowly and gradually, in the same way a practitioner should try to tame his breath slowly, slowly or else it kills the practitioner himself )

Kapal Bhatti shown on TV causes hernia and then you are screwed.

HYPER VENTILATION shortens your life span .

What the hell is TRIPLE SRI doing --  he patented hyperventilation and is making money on it. Martini effect ( Nitrogen narcosis destroys your brain) .

Fake yoga gurus have caused strangulated hernia -- which is a life-threatening condition.

Does TRIPLE SRI know yoga?

Where did he do his training ?

A hiatal hernia occurs when the top portion of the stomach pushes through a weakened opening in the diaphragm where the food pipe (esophagus) joins your stomach (called the hiatal opening).

Inguinal hernia is due to weakness of the abdominal muscles which holds the organs in their original positions . So the organ gets protruded through inguinal canal and sometimes to scrotum.

An incarcerated hernia happens when part of the fat or small intestine from inside the abdomen becomes stuck in the groin or scrotum and cannot go back into the abdomen

Aerophagia is a condition where a person ingests too much air, which goes into the abdomen and results in sporadic belching-- this happens when you hyperventilate .

Break Hernia is the outcropping of a part of the abdomen into the thoracic (chest) hole due to decline or crack of the diaphragm.

Yogic breathing is NOT hyperventilation like kapalbhatti -- or triple sri ravishankar's SOO HUM -- it is deep diaphragmatic breathing.

Did his GARGANTUAL TONDH not come in between his training ?

Is his body a Yoga teachers body like BKS Iyengar or Ramdev ?

Can TRIPLE SRI strip down to his waist and show us his yogic body ?

We in Kerala know more about Yoga. -- as all Ayurvedic physicians knew yoga

I WILL POST ON YOGA SOON.

Hyperventilation immediately causes “a changed state of consciousness” albeit a FAKE one . I made my wife attend a AOL class just to feel .  Hyperventilation has been used by FAKE gurus to grab power. Some FAKE gurus  have even LIED that the Kundalini has started awakening .

One fine day I  MAY drag all these FAKE R darling gurus by their nostrils to China Town—till then let them  dance  merry.

In this blogsite along there are several technical posts on Nitrogen —  Capt Ajit Vadakayil is professionally qualified and certified to talk about Nitrogen, Oxyegan and Carbon dioxide . .

http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2012/11/cpr-ambu-bag-and-oxygen-resuscitation.html


##################################

This is what B.K.S. Iyengar wrote in his book “Light on Pranayama”.  

He has told the truth even though he does NOT have a technical mind . 

QUOTE :  Bhastrika means bellows: the air is forced to come in and out of the lungs, similar to the work of the bellows. In other types of pranayama an inhalation influences the length, quality and rhythm of an exhalation, but in bhastrika it is an exhalation that dictates force and tiempo. 

In bhastrika an inhalation and an exhalation are done with an effort. Sound produced during this pranayama is similar to the sound of the bellows.

Both these pramayamas (kapalabhati and bhastrika) activate and strengthen liver, spleen, pancreas and stomach muscles, as well as improve digestion. They dry up sinuses and stop a runny nose. They cause a sense of happiness.

Notes and warnings:--

1. Bhastrika generates prana that in its turn activates the whole body. As too quick kindling blows up an engine or a boiler, as too prolonged bhastrika endangers the lungs and exhausts respiratory system because the process of breathing is too intensive.
2. As the sound decreases, stop and start again, or lessen number of blow-throughs and cycles, or make a pause in a practice for one day.
3. Make a pause in your practice when you feel irritation or tension.
4. Stop the practice when the sound of an exhalation is incorrect or blows-through do not go properly. Any forced action leads to injury or nose bleeding.

People with weak body constitution or limited capacities of the lungs should not try to practice bhastrika or kapalabhati, as their blood vessels and brain may run risks.

The following people should not practice pranayamas:
а) women, as forced blows-through can lead to prolapce of abdominal organs and the uterus, and breasts may get weak and get flabby;
b) people suffering from deseases of eyes and ears (for example, pus in the ears, retinal detachement, glaucoma);
c) people with high or low blood pressure;
d) people suffering from nasal bleeding, intensive pulsation or pain in the ears.

 If anything of the mentioned above happened to you, stop the practice immediately for several days.  Then try again, if the symptoms persist, it means that the practice does not suit you.   

Many people have a wrong understanding thinking that bhastrika pranayama awakens kundalini-shakti. 

Authoritative books affirm the same concerning many pranayamas and asanas, but it is far from the truth.  

There is no doubt that bhastrika and kapalabhati refresh the mind and agitate it for activity, but if people think that by that they awaken their kundalini, in a result thay can damage their body, nerves and brains.
#################################

Let me break a bombshell today.

Many old people while doing hyperventilation on their beds have died and their deaths have been pronounced natural.

Hypoxia (also known as Hypoxiation or Anoxemia) is a condition in which the body or a region of the body is deprived of adequate oxygen supply

Hypoxia is an insidious killer.  There is a tendency for euphoria to develop while motor skills and reasoning abilities deteriorate.

Hyperventilation may be described as a respiratory rate excessive for the body's oxygen requirements. It may be voluntary or involuntary and can occur in relation to many different activities.

Hyperventilation may be obvious, as in the case of children preparing to compete in underwater swimming, or it may be covert as for example when the respiratory rate increases from a required 12 per minute to an excessive 15 per minute and remains elevated for a prolonged time.


Whatever the cause the results are the same.  Carbon dioxide, the most potent stimulus to respiration, is blown off in excessive amounts.  The PACO2 falls and respiratory alkalosis develops.  The cerebral vessels become constricted .


You feel drunken dizzy, a coldness and tingling around the lips and a feeling as though there was a band around the head.  Nausea may be present.  Peripherally there is vasodilatation and stimulation of sensory nerves causing a sensation of pins and needles in the hands and in the feet.


If hyperventilation continues carpopedal spasm develops and the subject may become unconscious and develop frank tetany.  With the breath held the carbon dioxide levels build up once more and the symptoms disappear in reverse order.


Obviously such a chain of events can lead to an accident. This has been documented in some incidents in young fighter pilots or untrained private pilots who have inadvertently flown into bad weather and have kept the microphone button depressed, broadcasting their breath patterns up to their final moment. 


Hyperventilation is excessive ventilation of the lungs, beyond what is required to achieve normal arterial blood gases. Hyperventilation has little effect on arterial pO2 and almost no effect on oxygen saturation which is nearly 100% under normal circumstances. Its main effect is to lower pCO2 and produce a respiratory alkalosis. 



A secondary hypocalcaemia also occurs as calcium dissociation is shifted towards the unionised, bound form. In the lungs, oxygen from inhaled air is exchanged for carbon dioxide from the blood. This process takes place between the alveoli (tiny air pockets in the lungs) and the blood vessels that connect to them. 


When a person hyperventilates, this exchange of oxygen for carbon dioxide is speeded up, and the person exhales too much carbon dioxide. This lowered level of carbon dioxide causes the pH of the blood to increase, leading to alkalosis.


Hyperventilation is the cause in unexplained accidents.  If one considers the symptoms of hypoxia and hyperventilation it will be seen that they are very similar.  As it is imperative in the air that no mistake be made, the treatment for both is to breathe 100% oxygen and to reduce the rate of respiration.

I WANT TO SEE THE FACES OF ALL MEDICAL EXPERTS ( CHOOTS ) WHO PRAISED TRIPLE SRIs HYPERVENTILATION  .  

Below: Yoga of Shukracharya does NOT allow chest breathing which happens during hyperventilation ( propagated by FAKE gurus having hundreds of branches all over the world and who are darlings of R controlled media ) -- 

YOGA AND PRANAYAMA , ALLOWS ONLY DEEP DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING .


The diaphragm is a large, dome-shaped muscle located at the base of the lungs.  Your abdominal muscles help move the diaphragm and give you more power to empty your lungs.   


Diaphragmatic breathing  decreases the work of breathing by slowing your breathing rate. It uses less effort and energy.

Diaphragmatic Breathing is a way of interrupting the "Fight or Flight" response and triggering the body's normal relaxation response.

When the diaphragm contracts, in conjunction with the intercostal muscles, it lowers the pressure in the thoracic cavity. This enables air to enter the lungs. 

When breathing out, the diaphragm relaxes along with the intercostal muscles, allowing air to leave. Air may be forced out faster by increasing abdominal pressure using the tranverse abdominis muscle.

75% of the people on this planet do wrong type of breathing- their chest rises as the intercostal muscles contract. Yet, the stomach is drawn in by activation of the tranverse abdominis muscle and the diaphragm is not engaged. 

Whilst this might present a more pleasing profile in a mirror, it reduces the volume of oxygen available by only partially expanding the lungs. These people die faster.


Due to rapid more shallow breathing, the chest does not expand as much as it would with slower deeper breaths and much of the air exchange occurs at the top of the lung tissue towards the head. This results in "chest" breathing. 

You can see if you are a chest breather by placing your right hand on your chest and your left hand on your abdomen. As you breathe, see which hand rises more. If your right hand rises more, you are a chest breather. If your left hand rises more, you are an abdomen breather. 

Chest breathing is inefficient because the greatest amount of blood flow occurs in the lower lobes of the lungs, areas that have limited air expansion in chest breathers. Rapid, shallow, chest breathing results in less oxygen transfer to the blood and subsequent poor delivery of nutrients to the tissues. 

With regular practice you will breathe from the abdomen most of the time, even while asleep. The diaphragm is a large muscle located between the chest and the abdomen. When it contracts it is forced downward causing the abdomen to expand. This causes a negative pressure within the chest forcing air into the lungs. The negative pressure also pulls blood into the chest improving the venous return to the heart. This leads to improved stamina in both disease and athletic activity. 

Like blood, the flow of lymph, which is rich in immune cells, is also improved. By expanding the lung's air pockets and improving the flow of blood and lymph, abdominal breathing also helps prevent infection of the lung and other tissues. But most of all it is an excellent tool to stimulate the relaxation response that results in less tension and an overall sense of well being. 

By getting more oxygen into your lungs, and then into your blood stream, your muscles will have more "fuel" and the heart will need to beat less quickly and with less effort. When this occurs, the amazing and complex interplay between the brain and the various hormone-producing parts of the body (like the adrenal cortex) will change and smaller amounts of stress hormones will be released. 

The liver and kidneys will then be able to "catch up" with all of the stress hormones in the blood stream and the fight or flight response decreases and then ultimately stops. 

This blogsite now wants you to turn over a new leaf . Flood the internet on facebook and twitter. Inform even you cat and your dog- it is that important . 

EVIL PHARMA and doctors do NOT want you to know all this.  Reawakening correct breathing allows you to tap one of your body’s strongest self-healing mechanisms. 

More than 85% white men do chest breathing-why ? Their culture demands it. 

They are rewarded for stifling strong emotions. They are rewarded for swallowing their sputum. They are rewarded for not washing their assholes after a crap. They are rewarded for NOT scraping their tongue after brushing teeth. 

Below: Yoga stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for “rest and digest” activities—the opposite of the fight-or-flight stress responses managed by your sympathetic nervous systems. 


What happens when you hold back tears, stifle anger during a charged confrontation, tiptoe through a fearful situation, or try to keep pain at bay? Unconsciously, you do chest hyperventilation . 

You see these beach bums who have NO happiness inside their homes , walking about the beach holding their tummies in to impress others .  A “washboard” stomach considered so attractive in our culture encourages men and women to constrict their stomach muscles. This adds to tension and anxiety, and gradually makes shallow “chest breathing” feel normal. 


Shallow breathing hobbles the diaphragm’s range of motion. The lowest portion of the lungs — which is where many small blood vessels instrumental in carrying oxygen to cells reside — never gets a full share of oxygenated air. This makes you behave like an as$hole – nay—FAT as$holes.. 

Deep abdominal breathing encourages full oxygen exchange — that is, the beneficial trade of incoming oxygen for outgoing carbon dioxide. Not surprisingly, this type of breathing slows the heartbeat and can lower or stabilize blood pressure.



Yoga increases GABA levels in the brain.  Low GABA levels are associated with depression.  Low GABA levels are associated with Alzheimer’s disease.


Yoga increases GABA, a get-calm chemical . 

People who did regular yoga had significantly more GABA, and had increased mood and decreased anxiety, than those who didn't do the practice and walked instead. 


More than 40% of the synapses in the human brain work with GABA and therefore have GABA receptors.  

GABA is classified as an inhibitory neurotransmitter, as opposed to excitatory neurotransmitters.   GABA slows down neuron firing.   Other neurotransmitters – adrenaline, nor-adrenaline, dopamine, serotonin, glutamate – have an excitatory function, i.e. they stimulate neuron firing.

Most of the substances used to relieve anxiety – alcohol, cannabis, tranquilisers – get their effect through boosting GABA in your brain.   The EVIL PHARMA sells GABA supplements for anxiety and insomnia . 

It does NOT work.   



When GABA is taken orally, GABA levels in the brain do not increase,  because the substance itself cannot pass the blood-brain barrier and enter the central nervous system.


In humans, GABA is directly responsible for the regulation of muscle tone.  Helps you relax and handle stressful situations more easily. Teaches you how to quiet the mind so you can focus your energy where you want it to go , and be in the moment.

Yoga means to be in perfect tune.   Your body, mind and spirit work in harmony.   When you fine-tune yourself to such a point where everything functions so beautifully within you, the best of your abilities will just flow out of you.  When you are happy you have unbound energy. 

Happiness is about equilibrium or dynamic balance between your  body, mind and spirit. - for life is a combination of spiritual, intellectual and physical aspects.  People who do yoga do NOT sweat the small stuff. 

Using a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine, it has been proved that meditation changes the physical structure of the brain..





Below:  Using a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine, it has been proved that meditation changes the physical structure of the brain..


Prayer is NOT meditation. The former is a petition to  God, and the other is a detached observation of one's own mind, and its processes.



Meditation  abstracts the self from conscious thought, and frees the mind from feelings that cause stress and suffering.   It fosters creative intelligence, raise consciousness, and enables fuller use to be made of mental potential.

The increased gray matter in the meditators’ brains should make them better at controlling their attention, managing their emotions, and making mindful choices.

The brain you have today is, in part, a reflection of the demands you have placed on it. People learning to juggle, for example, develop more connections in areas of the brain that anticipate moving objects. 

Medical students undergoing periods of intense learning show similar changes in the hippocampus, an area of the brain important for memory.  And mathematicians have more gray matter in regions important for arithmetic and spatial reasoning.

The spiritual aims are peace of mind, wisdom, and, ultimately, a state of enlightenment or self-realization.  Meditation and yoga  is a  form of natural healing, and helps people cope with  anxiety, depression, and drug dependence.

If you practice focusing attention on your breath or a mantra, the brain will restructure itself to make concentration easier.   If you practice calm acceptance during meditation, you will develop a brain that is more resilient to stress.    



And if you meditate while cultivating feelings of love and compassion, your brain will develop in such a way that you spontaneously feel more connected to others.

The attention is focused on monitoring the breath, and noting thoughts crossing the mind, without any judgement or attempt at control, but as a silent and detached witness.  If the mind throws up distractions, the meditator returns to simply observing the breath each time the distraction happens.  

A relaxed and unhurried attitude is important, since slowing down and observing the mind to see how it works is central to the philosophy behind meditation.

7.83 HZ or the ALPHA frequency  is the gateway that leads into deeper states of consciousness. Most people are in an alpha state during the short time immediately before they fall asleep and when the conscious nervous system switches over to the subconscious.

The "alpha state" is where meditation starts and you begin to access the wealth of creativity that lies just below our conscious awareness

Alpha is also the home of the window frequency known as the Schumann Resonance, which is the resonant frequency of the earth's electromagnetic field.

When we intentionally generate alpha waves and go into resonance with that earthy frequency, we naturally feel better, refreshed, in tune, in synch. It is, in fact, environmental synchronization.

Experienced meditators and yoga experts feel greater compassion.  Yoga and meditation reduces anxiety and aggression among prison inmates

Using the mantra technique, the meditator concentrates on a mantra  to banish intrusive thoughts and thus achieve progressively quieter levels of thinking until thought itself is transcended. The subtle vitalizing frequencies of mantras activate psychic energies and awaken our intuitive faculties.

A racing mind deprives you of sleep. Yoga and meditation helps to calm down the mental chatter and free yourself from the constant loop of thoughts that keeps you awake at night. 

Mantras still the activity of thought and helps you find a deeper level of consciousness. You will believe in Mantras only if you see a video of the mind boggling perfect geometric patterns,  sand will form on a tonoscope ( cymatics )


A potent Vedic Gayantri Mantra ( 5000 BC ) —

Om
Bhur Bhuva Svaha
Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi
Dhiyo yonah Prachodayat
    

(OM) OM (Dheemahi) We meditate (Bhargo) upon the Spiritual Effulgence (Varenyam Devasya) of THAT Adorable Supreme Divine Reality (Savitur) the Source (Bhur, Bhuva, Svaha) of the Physical, the Astral and the Heavenly Spheres of Existence. (TAT) May THAT Supreme Divine Being (Prachodayat) enlighten (Yo) which (Nah) our (Dhi Yo) intellect (so that we may realise the Supreme Truth).


During meditation thinking is separated from perceiving, so that the individual can stand apart from the emotional self.  The reason why people remain mired in negativity is because of the beliefs they have inherited over time. Beliefs are subconscious.

We act in the way we do because we are not aware of our beliefs and the feelings that these beliefs generate. That is why it is important to obeserve yourself and look within. We can do it. That is why we are different from animals.

We can use our  conscious mind to observe ,to introspect and dip into the  subconscious where our beliefs are embedded , in order to eliminate it.  You can meditate to rewrite these negative programmes  that cause you misery.

To be a mystic or a seer is not the same thing as being a spectator on the fence.  Mysticism provides an escape from a life of uninspired existence. It magnifies man and gives him a hope and destiny to fulfill.

In the modern era the road to holiness necessarily passes through the world of action.  You cant sit in a place , speak very little and call yourself a sage . 


Above:  The sign of OM is the sign of Hinduism.     OM is the first and foremost of all mantras. Mantra is the sound body of consciousness.   OM is the sound of Cosmic Energy and contains all the sounds in itself.    All Hindu Sanskrit mantras start with OM and end with OM.  OM surcharges the innermost being of man with vibrations of the highest reality.  The human ear can discern only a very narrow band between 20 Hz to 20000 Hz. The rest in inaudible. This is why NO cosmic sound can be heard by the human ear. These cosmic sounds were heard by rishis in their spiritual trances which broadened their sense spectrums. The earth vibrates at 7.83 Hz and so does OM. The primordal vibrations of atoms and molecules is thus represented by OM. When 2 vibrating systems are in resonance with each other, a rise in the amplitude of the waves take place. In our case, the brain and the global electric circuit resonance leads to a rise in amplitude in the waves dancing in our brain. Rise in amplitude causes a rise in our consciousness energy.  Chanting OM produces a sonorous vibration like the buzz of a mighty transformer. The vibrations produce scalar waves which calms the mind. The MMMM humming boosts the production of Nitric oxide in the body. This was known to Indians and documented 7000 years ago.

Yoga is 100% enmeshed with Hinduism.  Christian and Muslim religious leaders have claimed that the practice of Yoga violates the core tenets of Christianity and Islam owing to its unmistakably Hindu content.  

If so keep away -- FU#K OFF !.  

It is IMPOSSIBLE to divorce yoga as divorced from Hindu spirituality for extracting the benefits. Hinduism is all about spirituality .  Rest are all religions. Christianity and Islam organised violence first.  Indian societies knew no violence despite having more than 3000 languages and hundreds of gods. 

Never mind all these FAKE creations of the white invader like the FAKE Emperor Ashoka who converted from BAAAD BAAAAD Hinduism to GOODIE GOOD Buddhism . India was invaded by Muslims in 1192 AD and by Christians in 1498 AD --  and peaceful Hindus became slaves, till 1947.. 

Hinduism was developed along spiritual lines, NOT religious lines—the reason why 800 years of slavery could NOT stamp out this amazing way of life.. Hinduism was developed along spiritual lines, NOT religious lines—the reason why 800 years of slavery could NOT stamp out this amazing way of life.. 

At the heart of Hinduism remains mans' essential quest for union with the Absolute supreme the brahmAn. In addition to tradition and moral order, it also signifies the path of knowledge and correct action ( Dharma ). 

The Hindu spirituality tradition , unlike other religions -- has always concerned itself with the “human” situation rather than the “our religion “ situation.   Under the doctrine of karma, the ability to make choices remains with the individual-and NOT what is being told as gospel in a holy book .   

Ask the Jews—they will say India is the only place where they never got persecuted over thousands of years—they always ran here for refuge.

The reason ?

This country had denizens steeped in spirituality — NOT religious bigots. Hebrew religion and Hinduism co-existed.

Yet today foreign funded Indian TV calls all Hindus bigots –what a joke !.


The Mahabharata (Shanti Parva 349.65), - Bhagavad Gita of Sri Krishna occurs, states: “Hiranyagarbha is the original knower of Yoga”

Brihadyogi Yajnavalkya Smriti XII.5 portrays Hiranyagarbha as the original teacher of Yoga.

Bhishma in the 6000 year old Mahabharata (Shanti Parva 300.57) speaks of a Yoga teaching “established in many Yoga Shastras.”

Hiranyagabha ( golden embryo )  Yoga tradition is a Vedic tradition.

Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras is only referred to as a compiler, not as an inventor of the Yoga teachings. He himself states, “Thus is the teaching of Yoga” (Yoga Sutras I.1)

Patanjali lived 5500 years ago and NOT 2200 years ago as written by the white invader.

Patanjali's Yoga Sutra, is composed of a total of 195 sutras or aphorisms ( wisdom packed words ) .

These sutras are structured around four padas or chapters:
Samadhi Pada,
Sadhana Pada,
Vibhuti Pada and
Kaivalya Pada.

The Yoga Sutras are not a philosophy but a step by step method to become aware of one own being.

Each Sutra is compact and needs a great deal explanation as it's nature and depth of psychological content.

Patanjalis Yoga is concerned with liberation through meditation.

The first chapter is "Samadhi Pada" a state of evenness where one is total and centered in one self without distractions. In this chapter the Yoga, the modifications of the mind, "Samadhi" and the concept of "Isvarah" God are explained.  

The second chapter "Sadhana Pada"  is the practice of a Yogi.

The chapter starts with a the base conditions to start Yoga " Tapah Svahdyaya Ishvarpranidhanani Kriyayogah" Austerity, selfstudy and surrender of the ego is Yoga of action.
Patanjalis definition of Yoga of action is Kriya Yoga.
Patanjali Yoga is even known as Raja Yoga, the Yoga of understanding and transcending the mind, consciousness is Raja or the king.
"Ashtanga Yoga" Eight limbs of yoga is the heart of Patanjalis Yoga system.
There are five major afflictions of the mind of which "Avidya" ignorance of ones own being is the root cause of all afflictions.  These are explained in the second chapter "Samadhi Pada".

Ashtanga Yoga
Yama (personal discipline)
Niyama (social discipline)
Asana (discipline of body posture)
Pranayama ( rhythmic breathing exercises)
Pratyahara (inward withdrawal of the senses)
Dharana (concentration)
Dhyana (meditation)
Samadhi (total awareness and evenness"Sama" of ones true self without conflicts)

The third chapter, "Vibhuti Pada" is concerned with Yogic Powers.


The fourth chapter " Kaivalya Pada" is the last in the Yoga Sutras . The difference between the mind, consciousness and witnessing and the soul are explained. 

Below:  You can appreciate the greatness , only if you realise that when Yoga was in full swing in India, the white man was running around naked, doing GRUNT GRUNT for language

nimittam-aprayojakaṁ prakṛtīnāṁ-varaṇa-bhedastu tataḥ kṣetrikavat ||3||
However, outer causes are not sufficient to bring about inner change, which can be likened to a farmer removing a sluice gate so as to allow water to irrigate his rice field so that rice can grow there. ||3||
निर्माणचित्तान्यस्मितामात्रात् ॥४॥
nirmāṇa-cittāny-asmitā-mātrāt ||4||
The mutable self (chitta) is engendered solely by identification with that which is mutable. ||4||

karma-aśukla-akṛṣṇaṁ yoginaḥ trividham-itareṣām ||7||

tataḥ tad-vipāka-anugṇānām-eva-abhivyaktiḥ vāsanānām ||8||
In accordance with this law of cause and effect, the fruits ripen that correspond to the underlying desires (vasanas). ||8||
जाति देश काल व्यवहितानामप्यान्तर्यां स्मृतिसंस्कारयोः एकरूपत्वात् ॥९॥
jāti deśa kāla vyavahitānām-apy-āntaryāṁ smṛti-saṁskārayoḥ ekarūpatvāt ||9||
Even if modality, place and time cease to exist, the continuity of wish and consequences remains, for remembrance (smriti) and impressions (samskaras) are part of the same being. ||9||
तासामनादित्वं चाशिषो नित्यत्वात् ॥१०॥
tāsām-anāditvaṁ cāśiṣo nityatvāt ||10||

hetu-phala-āśraya-ālambanaiḥ-saṁgṛhītatvāt-eṣām-abhāve-tad-abhāvaḥ ||11||

atīta-anāgataṁ svarūpato-'sti-adhvabhedād dharmāṇām ||12||

The uniqueness of change comprises the essence of everything. ||15||
वस्तुसाम्ये चित्तभेदात्तयोर्विभक्तः पन्थाः ॥१५॥
vastusāmye citta-bhedāt-tayorvibhaktaḥ panthāḥ ||15||
That which is mutable in us (chitta) takes various paths to the same object, perception of which thus differs from one person another . ||15||
चैकचित्ततन्त्रं चेद्वस्तु तदप्रमाणकं तदा किं स्यात् ॥१६॥
na caika-citta-tantraṁ cedvastu tad-apramāṇakaṁ tadā kiṁ syāt ||16||
Nor does an object depend on that which is mutable in human beings; for if it did, then what would happen to the object if it were not perceived? ||16||
तदुपरागापेक्षित्वात् चित्तस्य वस्तुज्ञाताज्ञातं ॥१७॥
tad-uparāga-apekṣitvāt cittasya vastu-jñātājñātaṁ ||17||
However, whether an object, situation or person is understood or misjudged depends on the emotional preconceptions and the expectations of that which is mutable in human beings. ||17||
सदाज्ञाताः चित्तव्र्त्तयः तत्प्रभोः पुरुषस्यापरिणामित्वात् ॥१८॥
sadājñātāḥ citta-vrttayaḥ tat-prabhoḥ puruṣasya-apariṇāmitvāt ||18||
The true self can always observe the misconceptions (vritti) in that which is mutable in human beings, because this pure self (purusha) is not in motion. ||18||
तत्स्वाभासं दृश्यत्वात् ॥१९॥
na tat-svābhāsaṁ dṛśyatvāt ||19||
As that which is mutable in human beings is not inherently identifiable, it is a perceptible object. ||19||
एक समये चोभयानवधारणम् ॥२०॥
eka samaye c-obhaya-an-avadhāraṇam ||20||
Nor can both the mind and the illuminating process be cognized simultaneously. ||20||
चित्तान्तर दृश्ये बुद्धिबुद्धेः अतिप्रसङ्गः स्मृतिसंकरश्च ॥२१॥
cittāntara dṛśye buddhi-buddheḥ atiprasaṅgaḥ smṛti-saṁkaraś-ca ||21||
That which is mutable in one human being (chitta) being perceived by another mutable human being (chitta) would be as absurd as perception perceiving perception, and would result in confusion of remembrance. ||21||
चितेरप्रतिसंक्रमायाः तदाकारापत्तौ स्वबुद्धि संवेदनम् ॥२२॥
citer-aprati-saṁkramāyāḥ tad-ākāra-āpattau svabuddhi saṁ-vedanam ||22||
Unlike the characteristic of that which is immutable in human beings, the true self is unchangeable and can thus achieve full knowledge and self knowledge. ||23||
द्रष्टृदृश्योपरक्तं चित्तं सर्वार्थम् ॥२३॥
draṣṭṛ-dṛśy-opa-raktaṁ cittaṁ sarva-artham ||23||
The actual purpose of that which is mutable in human beings (chitta) is to see close up both the observer (drashtu) and the observed object. ||23||
तदसङ्ख्येय वासनाभिः चित्रमपि परार्थम् संहत्यकारित्वात् ॥२४॥
tad-asaṅkhyeya vāsanābhiḥ citram-api parārtham saṁhatya-kāritvāt ||24||
This human mutability (chitta) has countless wishes of every description (vasana). But it has another purpose – namely to establish a connection between the outside world and the true self. ||24||
विशेषदर्शिनः आत्मभावभावनानिवृत्तिः ॥२५॥
viśeṣa-darśinaḥ ātmabhāva-bhāvanā-nivṛttiḥ ||25||
For he who has experienced this unique vision (darshana), the desire (vritti) for self fulfillment vanishes. ||25||
तदा विवेकनिम्नं कैवल्यप्राग्भारं चित्तम् ॥२६॥
tadā viveka-nimnaṁ kaivalya-prāg-bhāraṁ cittam ||26||
Then the power of discernment (viveka) will be strengthened and all that is mutable in human beings (chitta) will take the path of liberation (kaivalya). ||26||
तच्छिद्रेषु प्रत्ययान्तराणि संस्कारेभ्यः ॥२७॥
tac-chidreṣu pratyaya-antarāṇi saṁskārebhyaḥ ||27||
This viewpoint is breached by preconceptions (samskara), whereupon other impressions arise. ||27||
हानमेषां क्लेशवदुक्तम् ॥२८॥
hānam-eṣāṁ kleśavad-uktam ||28||
These preconceptions are eliminated as described previously for spiritual burdens (klesha). ||28||
प्रसंख्यानेऽप्यकुसीदस्य सर्वथा विवेकख्यातेः धर्ममेघस्समाधिः ॥२९॥
prasaṁkhyāne-'py-akusīdasya sarvathā vivekakhyāteḥ dharma-meghas-samādhiḥ ||29||
Attaining genuinely deep insight even engenders constant imperturbability and discernment (viveka). This state is referred to as dharma megha samadhi. ||29||
ततः क्लेशकर्मनिवृत्तिः ॥३०॥
tataḥ kleśa-karma-nivṛttiḥ ||30||
Then the concept (vritti) of spiritual burden (klesha) and cause and effect (karma) will be completely removed. ||30||
तदा सर्वावरणमलापेतस्य ज्ञानस्यानन्त्यात् ज्ञेयमल्पम् ॥३१॥
tadā sarva-āvaraṇa-malāpetasya jñānasya-ānantyāt jñeyamalpam ||31||
Then all veils and uncertainty fall away. Knowledge that can be gained is nothing compared to the infinity of knowledge. ||31||
ततः कृतार्थानं परिणामक्रमसमाप्तिर्गुणानाम् ॥३२॥
tataḥ kṛtārthānaṁ pariṇāma-krama-samāptir-guṇānām ||32||
In this way is the purpose of change accomplished and all change (krama) in the physical realm (guna) comes to an end. ||32||
क्षणप्रतियोगी परिणामापरान्त निर्ग्राह्यः क्रमः ॥३३॥
kṣaṇa-pratiyogī pariṇāma-aparānta nirgrāhyaḥ kramaḥ ||33||
The experience of a sequencing process of moments and changes comes to an end, thus making change (krama) a real experience. ||33||
पुरुषार्थशून्यानां गुणानांप्रतिप्रसवः कैवल्यं स्वरूपप्रतिष्ठा वा चितिशक्तिरिति ॥३४॥
puruṣa-artha-śūnyānāṁ guṇānāṁ-pratiprasavaḥ kaivalyaṁ svarūpa-pratiṣṭhā vā citiśaktiriti ||34||

Liberation (kaivalya) fulfills the goal of the true self (purusha); matter (guna) is transcended. The true nature of being and the force of absolute knowledge are then revealed. ||34||




In swara yoga, prana or energy is circulated in the body through a system of nadis or pathways, of which the three most important are known as ida, pingala and sushumna.  These three flow up the spine, ida and pingala coiling around sushumna at the centre.  

Ida terminates at the upper opening of the left nostril, pingala at the upper opening of the right nostril, and sushumna at sahasrara chakra at the crown of the head. Ida is known as the lunar nadi because its activation produces calmness and a feeling of well being. Traditionally, the colour is blue. 

Pingala is known as the solar nadi because its qualities are heat and dynamism. Its colour is red. 

Sushumna is the synthesis or spiritual nadi which becomes active when ida and pingala are balanced. Its colour is gold. 

There is a direct correspondence between the states associated with the activation of ida, pingala and sushumna nadis and the parasympathetic, sympathetic and central nervous systems respectively. 

When we breathe in through the left nostril, ida nadi or the parasympathetic nervous system as well as the right hemisphere of the brain are stimulated. When we breathe in through the right nostril, pingala nadi or the sympathetic nervous system as well as the left hemisphere of the brain are stimulated. 

When the breath is equalised through both nostrils, the brain and the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems are balanced. Then a state of equilibrium is achieved in the central nervous system and the state of meditation dawns as the sushumna awakens.

Hi np,


Modern Lateral thinking taught in Management schools is lifted from the ancient yogic method of PRATIPAKSHA BHAVANAM . 

There is NO knee jerk reaction like an idiot - only willful choice of a sage .  Every action is pro-active and grounded IN THE MOMENT  . This is the message of Bhagawad Gita.


A yogi is trained to recognize negative thoughts, feelings and habits , and refocus energy onto positive thoughts, emotions and  activities  .

A yogi keeps away from self pity for it will interfere with mature positive action. He can make peace with his past by conscious contemplation so that he does NOT mar his present .

A yogi does NOT jump into conclusions . Nobody can make him jump into the bandwagon. He does NOT bow to precedent.  He will NOT get pre-occupied with stuff over which he has zilch control.


He does proactive change by seeking out reasons for change rather than waiting for them to arise. He can deal with change as a matter of heart as well as the head.  

Change demands energy. Hours of worry will drain your energy. The path through change is rarely smooth or predictable. The first need is to recognise the need for change and let go of old ways.  

He can build inner  awareness of the need and impact of change.  He drops his ego.  He admits to himself if he has made mistakes in the past. His new way is not to be judged as better/ worse or right/ wrong. They are simply new and need to be learned practiced and judged on their merits. 

Yoga has given him a sense of autonomy and self direction. He forges the hinges of destiny on his own terms. He rarely seeks the comfort zone. He seeks new balance and direction.  He can  establish new attitudes and beliefs .

The Yogi uses his free choice and does NOT sweat the small stuff. He will NOT short sell himself . He knows how to let go at the right time.

Happiness is a victory lap of positive forces over negative forces in your life.  A yogi can weed out negative thought.  Freedom from want is his greatest liberator. The gambler who waits for one more throw of the dice  is not exactly liberated.

A yogi is free from worry, compulsive thinking , negativity and pathetic clinging . He can put himself in another person’s shoes to view from another perspective-laterally.  He does NOT engage in tunnel vision . His is NOT stuck in microscope mode— he can pull back his lens at will and go to telescope mode.

Of course he is NOT a dim-wit. He can use pain for feedback.  He uses  pain as a message from the universal forces. He can follow his  emotions but he know when to control them.  He knows that an easy and calm mind can only be attained when emotions are allowed a safe expression.  

He can separate his  pride from the situation in hand.  He does NOT take things personally and get hajaar hypersensitive.. He does NOT swell on nasty remarks . He is able to ignore run down battery torches who endlessly challenges the sun.  

He has the innate ability to move on after grieving. He does NOT get mired in self pity . He is NOT the crying type.  He sees possibilities in every problem.  He can enjoy even a uncomfortable moment and then give a moonh todh full blooded shot. The Gita teaches us to give full blooded shots. 

The yogi has grace under pressure. He does NOT expect too much .He does NOT concentrate on what he does NOT have. He can count his blessings.

He does NOT break his own word to himself consistently. He is NOT addicted to emotional drama, hysteria and cynicism. . He does NOT seek happiness at the expense of anothers deep unhappiness – even if it were his enemy..

 Bhavanam has been used by half wit white skinned Indophiles to mean house ( TEE HEEEE !) —it is NOT made of brick it is bhavana – a thought.

The yogi can take another lateral view, and reframe his perspective on the situation. He is flexible .
Pratipaksha Bhavanam is a method that helps us catch these destructive and distracting thoughts, and redirect our minds back toward the yogic path. This is done by actively cultivating thoughts of the opposite nature when a destructive thought arises.  

The human brain has 2 lobes—left and right. The left side is used by all and sundry in short the bhartical--nay- VERTICAL THINKERS– the right lobe by yogis who are capable of LATERAL THINKING.

Lateral thinking recognises that the approach to a problem is never as important as its solution. It cares two hoots for logical thinking . The tool of insight is a creative gift called yogic lateral thinking. The good part is that lateral thinking can be learnt—you need not be born with it.

Vertical thinking using the left lobe of the brain is all about being right and logical at EVERY sequential step—it blocks all illogical pathways. Lateral thinking is more concerned with the wealth of thoughts .

A lateral thinker is never satisfied with the ADEQUATE beaten track. He does not drill his tunnel though logical steps to his goal—rather he will leap frog—opening new pathways. His last few steps is the one which will make his venture a success. 

Our Chutney Marys and Pickle Johns of our main stream media and BHARTIC-- nay- vertical thinkers . They think in tunnel mode. Their minds can NEVER EVER soar like a condor.

Pratipaksha Bhavana opens doors .By creating the opposite thought and reflecting on the possible consequences of our thoughts, words, and deeds… we are instantly given more options for thinking, feeling, and behaving.

The much touted and admired EQ of this century is about being right at every step. They can never understand the concept of a back swing.  The misunderstood and much maligned IQ+HQ with its tinge of madness is all about being right only at the end. 

Sometimes the genius will move to an untenable position to find a tenable solution. We used Pratipaksha Bhavana when sent our rocket to Mars.  The rocket went the opposite way first.  The satellite went the reverse way and catapulted around another planet to achieve the escape velocity.


Ancient Maharishis recognized the wisdom that the need to be right ALL the fu#kin’ time completely shuts out creativity and progress.

Pratipaksha Bhavana does NOT allow you to stare at the rear view mirror of life. You can at the most give a darting glance.  No self delusions , no distorted interpretations,  no selective perceptions.  No keeping one leg in the past and one in the future , to piss on the present.  Slow down maaan , give it a second thought—INTROSPECT is the message.


Pratipaksha means opposite and bhavana means contemplation .   By cultivating an opposite or positive thought when we are in the throes of emotional turbulence, we pave the way for self-healing.   

Patanjali is simply asking us to replace anger with compassion, violent thoughts with peaceful ones, hate with love, feelings of tension and stress with a sense of relaxation and contentment.

Pratipaksha bhavana assists us with spiritual transformation and self-realization. The emotions of love, peace, contentment and compassion are the natural state of our souls.  When we centre and align ourselves , we move to deeper levels of consciousness and grace.  

With Yogic deep diaphragmatic breathing , we take in the good and eject out the bad. 

Release any negative emotions or inner turbulence with every exhalation, as you continue contemplating the sacred joy and beauty of every inhalation.  

As you practice the substitution process of Pratipaksha Bhavana, the negative will gradually dissipate and lose its force and momentum. The positive will begin to assert itself—it is just a matter of time and patience. 

With sustained practice, as you go on developing the positive within yourself, the negative becomes sublimated and, to your surprise, soon vanishes.

When you attend old alumni meets , you can notice how little some people have changed. The bullies still remain bullies.  They subconsciously try to bully the same people whom they bullied 40 years ago. They still have all the negative traits and characteristics that they had when they were teenagers.  The same fears, attachments, ego and assumptions continue; they are only veiled.

Below: The practice of Pratipaksha Bhavana can help one to activate the IDA NADI parasympathetic nervous system (relaxation response) promoting homeostasis and healing.  The parasympathetic system of nerves is concerned with nourishing, healing and regeneration of the body.

The sympathetic and parasympathetic systems are antagonistic.  The sympathetic nervous system ( PINGALA NADI ) may be roughly likened to the gas pedal of a car.  The parasympathetic is more like the brake.  Pratipaksha Bhavana helps you to slow down. The sympathetic system, however, always takes precedence, because it is concerned with one’s survival.  

To promote balance and healing, the goal is to keep the sympathetic system turned off as much as possible.  This allows the maximum healing to occur.  Simple ways to do this are to rest, relax and think happy thoughts.  As soon as you think fearful or angry thoughts, or become too physically active, the body shifts into a sympathetic stance.   

Pratipaksha Bhavana is a simple and direct way of keeping our minds calm and our hearts open - meditation achieves this. Instead of indulging in the misery of our thoughts we can change the channel and connect to something positive. 

If the negative thought is a withdrawal from our innate peace of mind, then the positive response is an instant deposit. Pratipaksha bhavana adequately deals with the negative triggers as they emerge. This can deal effectively with pedophile psychopathic tendencies of homosexuality..
      

"When presented with disquieting thoughts or feelings, cultivate an opposite, elevated GRATEFUL attitude.  This is Pratipaksha Bhavana."



Getting back-



Yoga nourishes the intervertebral discs and the menisci discs of the knee

- READ THIS LINE A TRILLION TIMES.


-for if you have a knee and a back problem,you are FU#KED!. 


 You are up sh#t creek for good without a paddle !!


Only Yoga can move the SYNOVIAL FLUIDS around and nourish it.  Synovial fluid is the slippery liquid in joint systems that along with hyaline cartilage, allows smooth, painless movement of the bones. Synovial fluid is found in joints like the knees, hips, and elbows where more free movement of the bones is allowed. 

The few joints that do not have synovial fluid are the discs between your vertebrae in your back and both sacroiliac joints in the back of your pelvis. Consequently, movement of these joints is more limited than the others. Synovial fluid is also essential for delivering nutrients and oxygen to the hyaline cartilage which don’t have any sort of blood supply. 

The various poses in yoga allow this fluid to flow to different part of your body and with regular practice can increase the smooth flow of synovial fluid to your joints and make you move around more smoothly.

The isometric poses of yoga train the smaller muscles surrounding our joints to endure more pressure and make us work them harder in order to stabilize ourselves

Our joints are built to support us as we carry extra loads now and then but excess fat  to the point of obesity has been proven to cause earlier and more serious joint problems in individuals throughout their lives. Yoga along with a healthy diet can help you shed excess weight that is putting more pressure on your joints and inhibiting your movements.



No other form of exercise can isolate and concentrate on the muscles surrounding joints like yoga can while promoting healthy flow of blood and synovial fluid throughout the body. Even if joint problems are already getting the better of you there are still many poses that can be done on the floor that allow you to increase fluidity and loosen up the joints.


Yoga improves balance for stroke survivors.  When you have old parents you must know , all these highly polished modern tiles you put in your home are very slippery. You want to impress others ,  you want others to gape at your home.  You don’t release that your home is for you to live in safely. 

One fall and the aged hip bone breaks , due to useless modern foods.  Studies have proved that yoga practice of as little as twice a week had improved balance as well as less fear of falling. 
Yoga has NO barriers. It does NOT matter how old or young you are. It does NOT matter of you are a supreme endurance athlete or a fat couch potato.   The body uses its own weight.  The idea is to explore your limits,  not strive for some pretzel-like perfection.  


"No pain, no gain" is NOT the yoga way.   If it hurts, stop !.  Every ancient yoga teacher was a Ayurvedic physician too.


Our ancient texts talk about Swara Yoga. There is a nasal cycle which is influenced by our central nervous system . There are times when we can breathe more easily through the left nostril and another analogous period for the right nostril.  

This is connected with changes in cerebral hemispheric dominance which was proved with EEG recordings showing that higher activity of the right brain hemisphere results in easier breathing through the left nostril and the higher activity of the left brain hemisphere results in easier breathing through the right nostril and that this cycle changes every 60 to 180 minutes. This has been proved in many countries independently.

When we breathe more easily through the left nostril, the functioning of the right brain hemisphere is more pronounced and dominant than the left.  Easier breathing through the right nostril, on the other hand, means that the left brain hemisphere is currently dominating.

When we can breathe equally through both nostrils there is some kind of balance between left and right brain hemisphere functions and throughout the nervous system. This occurs mainly in the time of dawn, midday and sunset when the vital energies of nature are at their strongest.



We all have a right brain lobe and a left brain lobe.  For a right hander the left lobe is the Conscious lobe and the right brain lobe the Subconscious brain lobe.

Conscious = induction+ deduction ( determines what is to be done ).

LEFT BRAIN LOBE  ( for right handers )  : Numbers, written language, reasoning, spoken language, scientific skills , RH control

Subconscious = only deduction ( no thinking , draws conclusions, does not care for right or wrong, gives the power to do the job )

 RIGHT BRAIN LOBE ( for right handers ): Insight, 3D forms , art, imagination, music, left hand control. 

The conscious mind can be engaged 100% in giving bull  or deep thinking or day dreaming while the subconscious keeps the car safely on the road

Below: Ida- right brain lobe - sub-conscious. -left nostril/ body -parasympathetic nervous system-creative flow  - feminine -moon - blue


When you need to calm down, when your mind is chattering or when you can’t go to sleep, try left nostril (Ida) breathing.  Take your right hand and, with your fingers outstretched, block off your right nostril by putting gentle pressure on it with your right thumb.  Keep the rest of your fingers straight and pointing up towards the sky; the fingers act like antennas for the “cosmic” energy that surrounds us all.  


Below : The Sushumna nadi runs from base of the spine to the crown of the head. Located at the centre of the spinal cord.  Passing through all the seven chakras, it connects the Muladhara to Sahasrara chakra.  It is the way for Kundalini if awakened. Colour silver.



Below: Pingala , left brain lobe - conscious - right nostril/ body- sympathetic (fight or flight nervous) system- masculine -sun- red.



The sympathetic nervous system, dominates one side of the body and at the same time the parasympathetic nervous system dominates the opposite side.    SNS and PNS, is clearly connected to the daily rhythms of the neuroendocrine, cardiovascular and insulin systems, as well as to the secretion of stress hormones, cateholamines, which also show an alternate dominance in the left and right side of the body, and that this left-right pattern is also tightly coupled with the natural rhythm of the nasal cycle



The secrets of channeling breathing to influence the brain were documented 7000  years ago.  By practising the alternating breathing through the left and right nostrils we can naturally balance the functioning of both brain hemispheres .

The parasympathetic nervous system (PNS), lead to rest, conservation and restoration of energy and thus to a reduction in heart rate (HR) and blood pressure, a facilitation of digestive processes and the elimination of waste products.  It is an opportunity to rest, repair and consolidate. 

As a whole, the autonomic nervous system is understood as a `housekeeping' system which ensures our smooth functioning and adaptative responses to different situations in the outer and inner environment, and it is controlled primarily by the hypothalamus.

The sympathetic nervous system (SNS)  prepares us for an increased level of activity and the fight or flight response, which includes an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, cardiac output, a diversion of blood flow from the skin and splanchnic vessels of the internal organs to those supplying the skeletal muscles, increased pupil size, bronchiolar dilation, contraction of sphincters in the digestive system, and metabolic changes utilizing fat and glycogen. 

The sum total of these changes is to enable us to be maximally physically fit, to see and perceive most clearly and be ready for an explosive muscular action with a reduced tendency to bleeding in case of injury, with one purpose in mind - to fight or to flee, and save our skin.


Of late the nasal cycle is of considerable interest to ENT specialists and neurobiologists and it has been found to strongly correlate with a number of modifications of bodily functions, such as the relative EEG predominance of the contra lateral brain hemisphere,  rapid eye movement (REM) and non-REM sleep patterns , verbal and spatial cognitive processing and the release of endocrine agents such as noradrenalin, a potent stimulator of the sympathetic nervous system.

http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2013/02/the-dreamer-and-rem-sleep-witness-and.html

The ancient yogis knew which part of our nervous system is more dominant in a given moment and they instructed their students to how to benefit though conscious breathing effort. NEVER EVER by hyperventilation , but by deep diaphragmatic breathing. If at all bhastrika pranayama was used it was just to willfully break a cycle. The ancient yogis could influence the functions of different brain centres.  


They knew how to increase PERCEPTION just by a breathing cycle. They could slow down their hearts by a breathing cycle  I will give you a brief hint on how to do all this.


Yogis know how to selectively stimulate brain hemispheres through alternate nostril breathing. Breathing through the left nostril stimulates the right brain hemisphere and  the parasympathetic nervous system.  

This is connected with a slowing-down of the heart beat and consequently greater stroke volume of the heart . A greater volume of blood is pumped out of the heart per beat, as a consequence of lower heart rate.

Breathing through the right nostril stimulates the left brain hemisphere and the sympathetic nervous system. This results in accelerated heart beat, higher blood pressure, greater consumption of oxygen by the body cells and constriction of the blood vessels of the skin , thus preserving body temperature . This is how yogis can be totally oblivious to extreme weather conditions.  

Catecholamines are hormones, which regulate many body functions and are secreted upon stimulation of the sympathetic nervous impulses. Catecholamines trigger the release of glucose and fats (as energy sources) that are stored within the body. 

They also cause constriction of the blood vessels and increased blood pressure, heart rate and strength of heart contractions. Additionally, they dilate the bronchi, increase the basal metabolism of the body and mental activity and promote the body's capability to coagulate blood. 

One of my young officers had a deviated nasal septum, which caused him to breathe only though the right nostril, stimulating the sympathetic nervous system >He had high blood pressure . To treat his condition I told him to address the root cause and NOT to take hypertension tablets.  

After a minor operation of the nasal septum , he could breath equally through the both nostrils and his blood pressure problem became a thing of the past.


Have you ever wondered why you have two nostrils instead of one big fu#kin’ one?  

And what has Shiva and Parvati got to do with it ?   

According to Indophiles Shiva is a corpse eater lurking in a the dark shadows of the grave yard for a meal , right?

http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2014/09/aghoris-corpse-eaters-of-india-capt.html


The pineal gland and the pituitary glands must vibrate in resonance to create a field. This is represented by Samudra manthan in Hindu mythology, where mount Meru is used to churn the oceans for Amrit or Ambrosia in a to and fro movement , representing vibrations.. 

Serotonin has the same chemical structure as this hallucinogenic substance Soma. The pineal gland produces Pinoline, ( 6-methoxy-tetra-dydro-beta carboline, or 6-MeO-THBC ) . Pinoline also resonates with the very pulse of life 7.83 Hertz, the pulse the DNA uses to replicate, and which has been measured to be emitted from the brains and hands of all successful healers, regardless of belief or faith. 

OM king mantra is 7.833 hertz. Resonance can vibrate the pineal gland, to release Neurotransmitter seratonin, melatonin, DMT, etc. Pineal DMT is the chemical messenger which links body and spirit. The hormone Melatonin, induces sleep, while Serotonin, keeps you happy and in a balanced mental state of mind.  

At the time of death Seratonin and Melatonin in the brain breaks down to Dimethyltryptamine or DMT, C12 N2 H16, just after the oxygen stops circulating. This is the moment for the ultimate DMT trip. You see your whole past life as FRACTAL divine geometry. 


To the spiritual eastern mind, the story of SAMUDRA MANTHAN produces amazing acts of faith like the Kumbh Mela , which has been going on for 6000 years. Tamas and Rajas are conscious of each other.

hi vk,

TILL TODAY, NOT A SINGLE INDIAN HAS BEEN ABLE TO EXPLAIN THE YUGAS- NOT EVEN SWAMI VIVEKANANDA .

ADI SHANKARACHARYA WAS THE LAST TO KNOW ABOUT GOLDEN SPIRAL YUGA 4000 YEARS AGO .

TODAY ALL THESE FAKE GURUS HAVE LIFTED FROM THIS BLOG SITE AND PUT THEIR OWN VENEER AND ARE PREACHING AWAY TO GLORY .

OUR ANCIENT MAHARISHIS WERE CEREBRAL SUPERMEN.

7000 YEARS AGO, THE WROTE DOWN THE CONCEPT OF PRECESSION OF THE EARTH ( VISHNU NABHI ).

The Lotus from Vishnu's navel , moving in a circle on its supple stalk represents PRECESSION cycle of planet earth - of 25765 years.

Brahma sits on top the lotus -- every 25765 years it completes one cycle -last on Dec 21st 2012 .

The entire modern astronomy science is lifted from ancient Hinduism.

Our 4 Hindu yugas are a spiral-- at the rate 4:3:2:1 . In the Kali yuga the cosmic cow stands of one leg. A cycle of four yugas takes a linear 25765 years ( instead of golden spiral 4,230,000 ).

The first point of Pisces was the place where the equinoxial cuts the ecliptic till 21st Dec 2012. From 2012 AD it is aquarius ( indian kumbam )-- a new age, new sunrise at spring equinox -- precession of the equinoxes and markes the end of Kali yugam.

Dharma walks on four feet in Krutha/ Satya Yuga, on 3 feet in Treta Yuga, on two feet in Dwapara Yuga and one foot in Kali yuga- this is an allegory.

The yugas during the approach to Vishnunabhi are 'ascending' yugas; those during the retreat from Vishnunabhi 'descending' yugas.

COSMIC MECHANISM IS IN REALITY A GOLDEN SPIRAL, AND NEVER A STAGNANT CIRCLE.

Without understanding linear and spiral time ( yugas–aeon ) the Greeks who have lifted this concept use kronos ( chronos ) versus kairos.

Kronos time is linear , what we understand today.. It is quantifiable and measured. The precession cycle of 25765 years.

Kairos time is spiral ( stolen from Indian texts by Greek Aristotle ) based on the Golden spiral in a shankh or conch . .

THE GOLDEN SPIRAL TIME , TAKES INTO ACCOUNT DILATION OF SPACE TIME-WHICH ALBERT EINSTEIN LIFTED AND GOT FOR HIMSELF THE NOBEL PRIZE..

We blow conches in Hindu temples.

Our 4 Hindu yugas ( krita 1728000 years / treta 1296000 / dwapara 864000 / kali 432000 ) are a spiral-- at the rate 4:3:2:1 . In the Kali yuga the cosmic cow stands of one leg.

The ancient Indian Sri Yantra is based on the Golden mean of 1.618. The innards of the conch which creates the sound is shaped by brahmAn, the morphogenetic consciousness field.

In Advaita philosophy , the original theory of Sanatana Dharma brahmAn is the supreme god.

The ancient Vedas written in 5000 BC tell us that the basis of all creation is the all pervading intelligent morphogenetic consciousness field.

The Vedas said that all energy is a spiral and that empty space is not empty at all. It is a plenum, containing zero point field energy.. Scalar waves and sound waves are LONGITUDINAL. Rest are all transverse.

Spirals which follow the Golden mean and Fibonacci series can create scalar waves. A conch can create scalar waves.

The sound of the sea when you listen to the conch held to your ear is the sound of the Zero Point Field or Scalar Field or Brahman or OM. OM is 7.83 hertz and can be heard only by the heart, as the audible frequency starts with 20 Hz.

Ancient Maharishis with 12 strand DNA could hear OM . Hindu king mantra OM is copied Christianity ( AMEN ), Judaism ( SHALOM ), Islam ( 786 –write in Arabic left to right and show in mirror to see OM symbol )

This is what Wikipedia says –let me quote—

Captain Ajitji sadar pranam:

Reporting another perception molder for the followers of your blog: Yogesh Master, a pervert Kannada writer.

In his book "Dhundi" he has reportedly presented Ganapati as a wild person "Dhundi" who later becomes the god Ganapati. He claims that Ganapati was "a god of backward castes"/ dravidas.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkfSLVumTuY
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OzUUXmLsuI

Look at a few of his "variginal" "yuckspert" gleeful comments in the interview:

1. When Parvati encounters Shiva as a lay woman, the erotic actions of Shiva are absurd or horrifying for her.
2. When Ganga and Gauri quarrel, they scold each other calling whore and very vulgar words.
3. Vi-nayaka means "no leader". Vinayaka means "evil incarnate". (He claims to have PROOF to prove this)
4. Seeing vinayaka in dreams is a bad omen.
5. Manusmriti says that Ganapati is the deiti of the shudras.
6. If anyone is POSSESSED by vinayaka: a prince can't become a king and a young woman won't get a good husband.
7. Ganapati is mentioned only in the puranas and not in the vedas.
8. In vedic period only agni, varuna, indra such people were there. Only in the puranas you find the vishnu, shiva and other gods.
9. Vedic people hijacked nonaryan deities like vishnu, shiva, krishna, hanumana of the dravidian race.
10. Ganapati is "sonn" of Parvati but not son of Shiva and Murugan is son of Shiva but not son of Parvati. So that completes the family.

If all this is true then the Bhimvadi people should stop worshiping Bhim or Buddha statue and start worshiping Ganapati, their real god.

hi tr,

hi tr,

people have denigrated lord shiva.  these people have the support of our BENAMI media and the white man.

shiva was converted to a sex starved tribal, a corpse eating aghori.

zakir naik's denigration of hinduism ( ganesha etc ) is still on you tube.

ALL the indophiles ( except a few have denigrated hinduism ).

ever since this blogsite ridiculed wikipedia of writing that FAKE "kabirDAS of immaculate conception , floated on a lotus leaf ( like krishna ) down ganges river to be found by a Muslim weaver" -  they have quietly deleted it.   for even an idiot knows this is absolute bull.

all R opium founded universities in USA/ UK are anti-hindu.

WHY DID I WRITE A POST ABOUT SATYAMEVA JAYATE OF AAMIR KHAN ?

WHY DID CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL GET ARRESTED FOR HATE SPEECH ( TELLING THE TRUTH )?

SMJ gave space to a dalit Sanskrit scholar of Delhi University Kaushal Panwar -- who keeps reminding everybody who cares to listen that -- HUNREAAADES of people call me daily.

So who invites her , to throw sh#t on the Vedas?

Hold your breath -- Harvard University .

Her speech is on Youtube .

She is seen slamming Indian culture, Hinduism and the Vedas, in Hindi to a white English audience -- all the while moaning how she is being discriminated.

This woman cant speak English to save her own life..

Now, why would a diamond polisher abuse the diamond ?

Use your commonsense here. Why would a dalit Sanskrit Scholar abuse the best work in Sanskrit, the 7000 year old Vedas.

ZAKIR NAIK DESTROYS PATRIOTIC MINDSETS AMONG MUSLIMS - AS HIS FUNDS ARE FROM ABROAD .

i have seen his sevral times running down India's ancient math/ scince/ astronomy/ medicine / vedas/ upanishads --

he does NOT know that islam is just 1300 years old, while our vedas were penned down 7000 years ago after 23000 years on oral route .

zakir naik will rattle out like string crackers -

saudi AL HULL BULL invented math
egyptian AL HURR BURR invented astronomy
iraqi AL KURR KURR invented science
malian AL FURR BURR invented medicine

and then you will all Indian muslims cheering like mad .

http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2013/01/mansa-musa-king-of-mali-and-sri.html

and when he LIES vedas told that earth is flat--all these Indian muslims go GA GA .

what is all this?

are they patriots?

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A BENAMI TV ANCHOR OR A DEBATER ON PRIME TIME PRAISING ANCIENT INDIA ? 

WELL IF THEY DO THAT THEIR CONTRACT WILLNOT BE RENEWED.

16000 virgin gopikas whom lord krishna screwed ( poison injected by white invader ) never existed-- for it is an allegory.

SAHASRARA CHAKRA is a 1000 petalled lotus -- each with 16 kalas or aspects --this works out to 16000 .

this is NOT some girl who has sex with Lord Krishna --taking turns.

Narakasura kidnapped 16000 damsels --and Lord Krishna saved these damsels in distress.

this is just an allegory.

shiva/ parvati/ ganesha are all allegories -personalised in a brilliant manner . 

72,000 nadis originate in a place just above muladhara chakra known as “medhra.”   Mula bandha stimulates all 72,000 nadis at their source, an effect which makes it very powerful.

Mula Bandha draws energy towards the lower end of the spine, into the Muladhara Chakra.

There are three bandhas employed in yoga: the root valve located at the perineum (called mula bandha, also spelled as moola bandha), the stomach valve located around the belly (called uddiyana bandha) and the chin valve located at the throat (called jalandhara bandha).

Mula bandha is performed by contracting and lifting inward and upward the muscles of the perineum—a muscle between the asshole and the balls- to sublimate sexual energy and raise it to higher chakras.

As you “lock” the muscles of the perineum, you “unlock” prana and redirecting the flow upwards and reversing the natural tendency of apana to flow downwards.

This muscle is NOT the muscle contracted when you are trying to hold a shit, NOR the muscle with which you are trying to hold a pee.--but the muscle equidistant between the two, which contract during sexual orgasm .

 This muscle help men control premature ejaculation and women to have natural childbirth.

This bandha indeed is the root (moola ) of creation and is mentioned in the 7000 year old Upanishads.

The sleeping kundalini is aroused by the extreme heat and just as a serpent beaten with a stick straightens and hisses.

The pubococcygeus muscle is a hammock-like muscle, that stretches from the pubic bone to the coccyx (tail bone) forming the floor of the pelvic cavity and supporting the pelvic organs.

Activate this Mula Bandha at the end of an inhalation, as the exhalation starts. Draw the pelvic floor in and up.

Brahma granthi, ( the knot of Brahma ) located near muladhara chakra, is pierced and then untied by a moola bandha.

Kundlaini cannot travel upwards unless the Brahma Granthi is untied.

By the way Brahma Granthi ( a muladhara chakra ) is related to the physical body, Vishnu Granthi ( at anahata chakra ) is related to the astral body and Rudra Granthi ( at Ajna chakra ) is related to the causal body.

When Kundalini ascends Vishuddha Chakra and reaches Ajna Chakra, and beyond the five elements of earth, water, fire, air, and akasha- he Ida and Pingala nadis cross over each other and disintegrate in the left and right nostrils, respectively.

As lunar and solar channels, Ida and Pingala are time bound. After this plexis in Ajna Chakra, the time bound consciousness dissolves, and one establishes himself in Infinity.

GANESHA UNTIES THE BRAHMA GRANTHI AT THE MOOLADHARA CHAKRA FOR HIS MOTHER SHAKTI ( PARVATI ) TO RISE UP AS KUNDALINI AND MERGE WITH HIS FATHER SHIVA AT SAHASRARA CHAKRA .

The Muladhara chakra ( root ) hangs outside your body between your thighs , just beneath your scrotum.

The Sahasrara chakra ( crown ) is located on top of your head.

the allegories of Hinduism are for the intelligent NOT for dimwits.

On the micro scale, lord ganesha resides in muladhara chakra. he is in charge of the brahma granthi knot.

only when ganesh loosens the knot can his mother shakti / parvati ( kundalini ) rush up to embrace her husband shiva who resides at topmost sahasrara chakra .  

son ganesha  removes the obstacle which prevents his father shiva and mother parvati meeting, and only he has this master key --

----and this is why ganesha is known so--so that kundalini can take the safe path of sushumna  for exploding consciousness --not ida or pingala..

so all these myths are for idiots -- of ganesha standing guard ( an obstacle ) while his mother parvati is taking bath , and shiva wanting to enter the bath room etc .

mooladhara chakra is associated with jnana indriya -- sense of smell -- a large nose -- trunk of elephant.

in hindu astrology mars is the malefic planet. mooladhara is red resonance.

ganesha removes the obstacles.  When I moved into my new home I did ganesha homam—

In Hindusim Mars is mangalam --auspicious --as ganesha is there to take care of this planet.

we do ganesha homam-- to remove blockages - addictions, compulsions, fear, indiscipline.

the root chakra is the survival seat - will to live, faith in life.

On the macro scale , Ganesha has the swastika symbol on his palm. It represents the cosmic spinning vortex.
Everything is energy.
All energy is a vortex .

let choots say whatever they want over brandy and cigars --or halal meat or pork chops or kosher vinegar !.

BENAMI MEDIA DARLINGS  LIKE AMISH TRIPATI , DEVDUTT PATTANAIK ETC HAVE MADE MONEY ON FAKE HINDUSIM.   YOGESH MASTER  IS JUST ONE AMONG THOUSANDS .

Getting back-

Alternate nostril breathing (as in nadi sodhan pranayama) balances the functioning of the left and right brain hemispheres , improves spatial orientation and spatial memory (left nostril), improves verbal expression (right nostril) and cognition . 

People who do NOT get a single answer in any office meeting ( and hence are treated like sh#t ) and children who are NOT SO BRIGHT in school can gain from this.


When we lower the frequency of the heartbeat  we allow our heart to rest a little bit longer than usual between two consecutive contractions.  This additional resting allows the heart to be filled with larger quantities of blood and to contract with greater strength, thereby strengthening the heart muscle and maintaining it in better condition.

Tantric text Shiva Swarodaya is also called  Swara yoga which implies the  "science of one's own breath" .   The script starts with the conversation between Parvati and Shiva, where Shiva starts introducing the scripts and explaining about the need for maintaining secrecy and also stating astrological value of the text.   

Its fundamental application is to realize the breath as being the medium of cosmic life force, through practising “Swara Yoga” .




Shakti ( Parvati ) asks Lord Shiva:

Q. 1. Which knowledge bestows perfection?

Q. 2. How was the universe created?

Q.3. How does the universe change and dissolve?

Q.4. Who determines the universe?



Lord Shiva responds:   Creation takes place due to tattwas (subtle essences), is sustained by them and finally dissolves into them. Tattwas are the origin of the universe. There is one birthless, formless supreme existence from which evolves akasha (ether), from which comes vayu (air). From vayu originates tejas (fire), from tejas apas (water) and from apas prithvi (earth). These five elements are spread throughout the world. Creation is formed and sustained from them and again merges back into them as the subtle process of creation continues ceaselessly.

What is swara? The science of Swara is the secret of all secrets and reveals the essence of all benefits. This science is the crown jewel of all knowledge. It is the subtlest of all subtle knowledge. It is easy to understand and based on truth. To the atheist it is a wonder, to the theist, the base (verse 11, Shiv Swara Udaya)

Who may have the knowledge? It should be given to one who is peaceful, pure, well behaved, dedicated to the guru, determined in mind, grateful (verse 13) The glory of Swara The power of swara overcomes enemies and joins friends, obtains wealth and glory (verse 22)

O Lady of beautiful face, all sacred books, moral stories, learning and Upinashads are not beyond the knowledge of swara (verse 25)

If you have knowledge of Swara, it is not necessary to consult the date, stars, days, planets, gods, conjunctions of stars or disorders of humours, phlegm, bile, wind, before starting any project (verse 29)

The teaching should not be revealed simply to answer someone's questions, but by one's own self, by one's own intellect in one's own body (verse 28)

AMONG SHASTRA

Among subjects that the texts on Swara discuss are the placement, location and function of the nadis, Yoga sadhana, description of auspicious/ inauspicious nadis according to the day, rules of the five tattwas, Zodiac signs according to the day and night, the appropriate direction of travel, reverse situations, fulfilment of desires-

Shiva explains auspicious acts during the flow of ida nadi, successful acts during the flow of Pingala nadi, characteristics of sushumna nadi, eight-fold division of elements or breath, predictions and divination, places of the five elements in the body, how to get gain and prosperity, prediction and indicators of death, attainment of psychic powers through the knowledge of swara..

This book is divided into 24 chapters in which Parvati, wife of Shiva asks about all aspects of life. She starts with a prayer and obescience to the Lord (Iswara) and then asks about all manner of things to which Lord Shiva answers that everything depends on swara; that "If breath is going out and coming in, there is life and if the movement stops, the body perishes." She continues asking about the nature of the universe, the origin of the embryo, the origin of swara, and all sorts of details about swara, knowledge of the tattwas, on food, sickness, war, dreams and death and many other topics. 

Shiva answers Parvati's questions patiently and fully and goes on the tell her all about swara saying that "for all beings, breath is only the base." These include techniques for managing the planetary effects and the moon's phases and avoiding the negative influence of the planets and astral forces, through altering the breath flow or swara in the nostrils, manipulating and controlling the breath or the breath flow through each nostril. We can alter our destiny by  being more auspicious, and realising, and eventually attaining the harmony and the Highest Consciousness.



There are three modes of breathing- flow from left nostril, flow from right nostril and flow from both the nostrils. The last mode is generally for a short duration when breathing switches from left to right and vice versa.  Mode of breathing can be checked by examining air flow while exhaling.

All our actions can be classified into three main categories; physical, mental and spiritual; which are respectively presided by the above three modes of breathing. 

 Breathing through the left nostril ( ida nadi ) stimulates the right hemisphere of brain, and breathing through the right nostril ( pingala nadi ) stimulates the left hemisphere. 


Breathing through the left nostril is connected with higher intraocular pressure and breathing through the right nostril lowers that pressure Intraocular pressure  is created by the continual renewal of fluids within the eye. The intraocular pressure is increased in glaucoma.

Below: Breathing through the left nostril stimulates Ida which relates to the moon and the parasympathetic nervous system, breathing through the right stimulates Pingala, relating to the sun and sympathetic nervous system.   Ida nadi is associated with the rest and restorative system of the body, whereas the pingala nadi is associated with the fight and flight response.  

As each rises up the back and neck and over the head, the nadis meet in the ajna chakra, or ‘third eye,’ and then drop down into the nose, the ida nadi terminating in the left nostril ( right brain lobe ), and the pingala nadi terminating in the right nostril ( left brain lobe ).


Using electroencephalograph monitoring, modern science has recognised the benefits of balancing and harmonising the two brain hemispheres.  Dominance of the two hemispheres change about every ninety minutes this in turn relates to a dominant nostril side for breath to flow. 

If the left brain is dominant the right nostril is dominant and vice versa, the dominance of the brain has an influence on which is the dominant nostril. What’s also been discovered is this works the other way, changing the dominant nostril will affect the dominance of the brain hemisphere so equalising the breath will also balance the brain, creating the harmonious effect we achieve in Nadi Shodana.

The flow of prana within the sushumna nadi represents the awakening of kundalini, but in almost all people prana only flows within the ida and pingala nadis, representing the duality of human consciousness. 

Ayurveda has recorded that human health is dependent upon the natural, balanced flow of prana within the pingala and ida nadis. This balance ensures the proper function of the autonomic nervous system, and the resultant effects in the body.

 Pranayama starts with the left nostril always. The benefits of left nostril breathing are numerous including sharper, clearer focus of the mind, and a deep, full relaxation or sleep.  In the Yogic tradition, left nostril breathing has been used to break vices and habits, which usually take 21 days  .  


Protein scientists will NOT understand the 72000 nadis.   Nadi literally means 'flow or current'.  In the Nadis are NOT nerves but energy rivulets composed of astral matter through which consciousness flows.   Like the chakras ( energy transducers ) they are not located in the physical body, though nerves of the physical body can be considered as their corresponding physical manifestations.   

Prana ( life force energy ) flows through the Nadis .  When the Nadis have become purified the aura of the yogi increases as can be detected by a Kirlean camera.  The other signs are  lightness of the body, brilliancy in complexion, increase of the gastric fire, leanness of the body, and along with these, the absence of restlessness and ego.

QUALITY  /  IDA    / PINGALA
Guna /  Tamasic    /  Rajasic
Breath /   Left nostril     /  Right nostril
Temperature /   Cold   /   Hot
Sex   /   Female  /  Male
Quality /    Mental   /  Physical
Colour  /   Blue    /   Red
Energy /    Negative    /   Positive
Nerves /   Parasympathetic   /   Sympathetic

Planet /   Moon/     Sun

If you watch your breath you will find that it is usually flowing more in one nostril than the other. Again, if the left nostril has a greater flow of air, then ida nadi is predominant. When the flow is greater in the right nostril, then pingala is predominant. If the flow is equal, then sushumna is ruling.

When the right nostril is flowing, then vital energy is more active, allowing the individual to do physical work, digest food and so on. The mind is extroverted and the body generates more heat.

When the left nostril (ida) is flowing, mental energy is dominant, the mind is introverted, any kind of mental work; thinking concentration, etc., may be undertaken. Ida nadi also flows mainly during sleep.

The primary aim of hatha yoga is to bring about a balance of flow between the prana in ida and pingala, (ha = sun, tha = moon). 

To do this the body is purified by the six techniques known as the shatkarmas.  As per swara yoga, in a day the flow of air through the left nostril should predominate for about twelve hours and through the right nostril for the other twelve hours.

If pingala flows, the body will be restless; if ida flows, the mind will tend to think too much. In human physiology, the two nadis correspond roughly to the two halves of the autonomic nervous system - the sympathetic and parasympathetic. 

Pingala coincides with the sympathetic nerves, responsible for the stimulation and acceleration of activities concerned with the external environment and the deceleration of the organs which tend to utilize a lot of energy internally. The sympathetic nerves speed up the heart, dilate the blood vessels, increase the respiration rate, and intensify the efficiency of the eyes, ears, etc.

The parasympathetic nerves directly oppose the sympathetic nerves, for they reduce the heartbeat, constrict the blood vessels, and slow the respiration so that the individual becomes introverted. The flow of prana in ida and pingala is completely involuntary and unconscious until yogic practices control it.

A Swara yogi realizes cosmic consciousness through control and manipulation of breath

The ancient 7000 year old Sanskrit texts mention 72,000 subtle channels through which prana flows, the dominant flow of prana occurs within the ida and pingala nadis, two channels that course upwards on either side of the spine from their origin within the kanda or ‘bulb’ in the sacral plexus. 

The ida and pingala nadis relate to the activities of the parasympathetic and sympathetic divisions of the autonomic nervous system, respectively.

Surya Bhedana when breathing in through the right nostril and Chandra bhedana when breathing in through the left nostril. Breathing in takes air down to the lungs which will produce suction in the eustachian tube.
Most adults will suffer Eustachian Tube Dysfunction to some extent during their lives. Blocked ears can be painful and can temporarily impair hearing. The most common causes include colds, air travel, sinus infections and impacted earwax. There are exercises you can try to unblock your ears.

The ear comprises three main structures: the inner ear, the outer ear and the middle ear. The middle ear contains three tiny bones, known as the stirrup, the anvil and the hammer. These conduct sound from inside the eardrum to the cochlea – a fluid-filled cavity within the inner ear. 

There is also a small tube connecting the middle ear to the back of the throat. This is the Eustachian tube, which is normally closed but opens briefly when you yawn or swallow. A blocked ear usually occurs when the air pressure in the middle ear becomes negative due to a malfunctioning Eustachian tube. 

Negative pressure within the middle ear causes the ear to feel blocked and may make sounds seem muffled. This problem is most commonly caused by allergies, a head cold, sinus problems or injuries due to atmospheric pressure.

To clear eustachian tube of bad ear:-
Close nostril with finger on side of good ear
Breathe in through nostril on side of bad ear
Close nostril with finger on side of bad ear
Breathe out through nostril on side of good ear
Repeat, always breathing in on bad ear side and out through good ear side.

Use MMMMM  humming sound for Nitric Oxide effect.


To maintain this balanced flow within the nadis, Ayurveda applies a number of techniques including nasya, jala neti and nadi shodhana  Nasya, which involves the application of a few drops of a herbal oil Anu taila into each nostril, which is then inhaled into the nasal passage.

Oil has a unique property to penetrate through obstructions in the body, and in the form of nasya the oil helps to break up and loosen excess kapha or ‘phlegm’, which can then be easily expectorated.
