Prayer - Asking or Celebrating

How should we pray – Asking or Celebrating?

If we look back to the beginnings of religion, people prayed for good fortune from a mix of fear and desire, this was a calling to the gods for protection or bounty which has continued into this day.

People of all religious beliefs pray for salvation from suffering and good fortune, and even those who consider themselves as atheists set aside a degree of hope and faith that the world around them will be supportive.

What is Prayer?

The most limited form of prayer is the asking God, the asking of the universe for some freedom or blessing. In that sense prayer is an acknowledgement that an individual is not in control

Islam: A Destructive Force

Media hides the dangerous intentions of Islam

Img by Nader Dawah

In May of 2018 there was an unforgettable and important event in the world. A French manifesto called for passages of the Koran promoting violence on unbelievers to be deleted. This has sparked outrage among Muslims who claim their religion is being unfairly ‘put on trial’.

The rationale for these passages to be deleted was to take a practical step to combat rising anti-Semitism and attacks on Jews by Islamic migrants into France and help quell Quran-based Islamic violence that’s become widespread over Europe.

The incident should have been promoted and expanded throughout the world, but the media have been almost silent, their

The Task of Reviving India

Sweeping educational changes and responsibility needed

To the casual observer and the European educated, this idea seems strange because India is a country that everyone chooses to mock without any clear rationale beyond this fact: that Islam and the colonialists having raped and pillaged the country have not been able to destroy what is quintessentially Hindu.

The word/name Hindu of course is an abbreviation of Hindustan referring to the geographic area and not what is seen as Hindu religion, another erroneous concept bandied about by experts whereas the proper term for Hindu spiritual understanding is Sanatana Dharma.

What is the problem of India and why does it need reviving?

India needs to be restored according to the precepts of Sanatana

Credit is not given where credit is due

Indian map from the early BC period

We have all grown up in a Eurocentric world where Europe including the UK became the centre of civilisation after the fall of Rome yet this understanding is more mythological than factual.

One thing is certain and that’s that Europeans love their ideas and on analysis they seem to be almost psychologically attached to them that they have written world history as they saw it conveniently leaving out facts that may shed any doubt on their case. For instance when Vasco de Gama left Portugal in search of an ocean route to India, he had to hug the coast because he did not have

The Female Breasts

The nurturing essence of womanhood and a fashion statement

An anatomical overview:

The term breast refers to the raised mound of tissue that grows on the upper anterior ventral region of the human torso (front of the human chest medically known as the mammary glands) and breasts are also found on all mammals. The breasts are mounted to the chest wall and are supported by a delicate system of muscles and ligaments. But the breasts do not contain muscles, the breast tissues lay on top of the chest wall muscles.

Both men and women have breasts but while the male breasts are similar to female breasts, the male breast tissues don’t normally produce milk although history shows that some men

Shall we kill the Brahmins?

A humble Sanyassi Brahmin

The Hindu civilisation was developed and maintained by Brahmins in association with the great sages like Agastya Muni and shaped over tens of thousands of years to foster human evolution in accord with nature. The ideas developed in India spread over the world and have been distorted to suit the patriarchal civilisation that budded in Persia then combined with the ideology of capitalism for global domination.

Despite the influence of capitalism, patriarchy, invasions and eventual occupation, India continue to not only survive, but it is thriving while the seed of Sanatana Dharma is sprouting over the world yet increasingly being denied in its homeland causing political conflict which in turn

A Ritual Life

Stand Up, Reason Out and know life

Sacred space via Arjuna Vallabha

We are creatures of habit and we unconsciously create many rituals in our lives such as waking time in the morning and retiring time in the evening, watching a particular genera of movie, drinking a particular beverage when we feel thirsty or eating certain types of foods. Some people keep their houses clean because they know it makes them feel good and in contrast some people due to laziness or belief live in squalor although some are forced into that situation by social deprivation.

Many years ago the concept of feng shui spread through the modern world, a system of home design and layout
