Being Human

A discussion on our humanity

Over the past few thousand years we have looked outwards in an attempt to understand and tame the world we live in, yet for the most part we have avoided looking into the nature of being human. We are the only species capable of breaking the bonds of karma and creating the life we desire, but unfortunately the emphasis is on external control instead of self-knowledge and responsibility.

When will we ever learn?

We struggle to break free of any binding yet in our struggles we bind ourselves more tightly in groundless beliefs that directly causes suffering to self and others. At the core of our humanity is a desire for

Indo-Aryan Languages

An 8000 year history

Indo Aryan languages are all derivatives of Mother language Sanskrit – the most complete human language of this planet. These include almost all languages of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Balochistan, Kurdi communities in Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey, Armenia, Azerbaijan and some areas of Caspian.

Many languages that are in red like Prakrit, Gandhari, Vedda, Niya, Avestan, Scythian, Bactrian, Khotani, Khwarezmian, Saka, Sarmatian, Pamiri, Vanji, Old Persian, Mediani, Alanic, Sogdian, Parthian, Zaza Gorani are no longer in colloquial usage or rather extinct as they were originally known. Some of them may have corrupted into some colloquial usage among smaller communities that have been merged by force by Islamic influence that literally bulldozed hundreds of ancient communities and forced

Paramahansa Yogananda

A modern mystic and spiritual teacher

(5 January 1893 – 7 March 1952)

One of the first great teachers to leave India for a Western country, the organisation that has grown from Yogananda’s teachings (the self realisation fellowship) to almost every country in the world. He teaches more by sharing his story rather than telling you what to do.

“You are walking on the earth as in a dream. Our world is a dream within a dream; you must realize that to find God is the only goal, the only purpose, for which you are here. For Him alone you exist. Him you must find.” – from the book The Divine Romance.

Yogananda was born in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh,

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

A modern father of Yoga

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

December 30, 1879 – April 14, 1950

Sri Ramana Maharshi is widely acknowledged as being one of the outstanding Indian Gurus of modern times. He was born in Tiruchuli (also commonly spelled as Tiruchuzhi), Tamil Nadu (South India) and named Venkataraman Iyer at birth. At the age of sixteen, Venkataraman became suddenly aware that his real nature was imperishable and unrelated to his body, mind, or personality.

Though many people have reported brief experiences of this, in Venkataraman’s case it was permanent and irreversible. From that moment on, his sense of being an individual person ceased and never functioned in him again. A few weeks after his sense of individuality

The Core of Yoga

The path to truth and happiness

There is no absolute scientific certain, no proven origin or reason for mankind in this world. There is no proof of creation, there is no proof of evolution; there are many maybes and yet we know we have this potential and yet were are caught up in suffering when we have the potential to be happy….

But the fact that you wake up every morning is proof that you are alive and depending on the combination of your actions and circumstances, you are either happy or unhappy. For the happy, yoga is a celebration of life and for the unhappy, yoga is a journey to create an enduring happiness.

We all experience moments of

Ethics in Yoga

The art and core of being

As with the ten commandments of the Christian bible and the more ancient Egyptian 142 commandments, the social and personal ethics known as Yama and Niyama are the rules which we must abide by for self realisation and for our survival as a society or civilisation. In other words, these constitute a formula for world peace and internal harmony.

Yama:

Peacefulness (ahimsa) Truthfulness (satya) Honesty (asteya) Continence (Bramacharya) Acceptance (aparigraha)

Niyama:

Purity (saucha) Contentment (santosa) Ardor or Austerity (tapas) Self study(svadhyaya) Dedication to the Lord (isvara pranidhana)

Why Ethics? Thesocial ethics, when practiced, bring about a harmonising of the community. They build trust and friendliness. Personal ethics assist us to see our true colours,

Chakras Explained

The technology of being human

Understanding the chakras is important if you are going to venture into advanced self knowledge and energy work although simple things like energy clearing do not require any knowledge at all, but it is required that you suspend any doubts or disbelief to allow your energy to work.

Part one

Energy follows thought If there is no thought or impulse, nothing will happen – for all activity and creation, there must be an original thought. This means that after a massage, if you are doing a simple energy cleanse, you must have the thought or better still the visualisation that it is taking place.

Are chakras are cultural a appropriation?

The Demise of Civilisations

Why do civilisations end?

With all its wisdom why was the civilized ancient world not able to withstand or overthrow the invaders?

Wisdom can not save one when times change and the evil attacks and invades. The physical forces who were guided by greed and selfishness destroyed all ancient world slowly and gradually. The fall of ancient world’s last developed times began decaying about 5500 years ago, when Mahabharata war had ended.

The ancient civilized world began its decay and people were misled and they began to fight and lay claims to others properties and this was also coincidental of commencement of Kali Yuga [an epoch of machine] as mentioned in Vedic texts. There upon greed led communities invaded

The Seven Chakras

Life – Force – Energy

Our seven chakras

The seven chakras make up the core of our energy or spiritual body. These points are located along the kundalini, a dual energy stream flowing from the centre of our earth to the furtherest space and back down to earth centre.

The kundalini can be likened to an 11,000 volt power line along which are transformers or chakras which break the current down in to 240 volts for consumption.

In yoga class I have talked about the dual nature of the kundalini in comparison with the alternating current of the city electrical grid and its important in meditation and asana practise to remember these facts as this is an area
