Education Is Failing Us

Acquiring the tools for living

In a more perfect world education would be about sharing and learning about life and all its processes, it would be about becoming a responsible human being in an intelligent civilisation. However as we are governed by ignorance and strength, learning has degraded into learning how to survive in a corrupted world.

Our modern education system is a corrupted version of an ancient Hindu system that taught children how to live in harmony with life which is why before the arrival of Islam and colonialism, it was the world’s most advanced civilisation that had no need to go to war and yet had some capacity to defend itself although there was probably no Hindu who

Sun Worship

Is this age old tradition still relevant?

Historians tell us that our ancestors in most countries at one time worshipped the sun yet in the modern world many think of the sun only as a convenience that gives us heat and light. Our ancestors were not stupid, they wanted to know how life worked and how they could better survive, sun worship helped in many ways.

The sun of course was and still is the most significant phenomenon in our local universe without which we could not survive. In fact if the sun suddenly stopped performing its current function, all life on earth would perish within a couple of days and in the resultant -270° and darkness, the planets of

21st Century Work and Income

A new paradigm for living

In our modern world governed by patriarchal capitalism, we compete to work at jobs that ostensibly pay higher wages yet many of those jobs contribute to environmental destruction and the dispossession of populations.

Take the steel industry, iron ore is extracted from lands from which the indigenous populations have been evicted, transported across oceans to be smelted to create products. The original purpose was to facilitate greater human well-being but that has now been corrupted into greater shareholder profits and the end products have an increasingly short term usable life.

There was a time when things were made to last, electric cars and scooters appeared 100 years ago to be pushed out of existence by

The Nature of Suffering

And the Key to Happiness

In the modern world of today, billions of people are fearing coronavirus and many governments are acting to politicise the fear as much as acting to contain and hopefully exterminate the virus.

The nature of suffering is twofold:

1. The physical; as in suffering caused by physical incapacity, the common cold, coronavirus and accidental injuries that compromise our physical ability to act in the world. A great amount of effort is put into alleviating these physical sufferings by the use of various treatments within the realms of allopathic medicine.

While chemical medicine and surgical interventions take care of some of the physical aspects of human existence, these do little to alleviate the suffering caused by

Manu for The Modern Era

Ideas for Creating a Stable Civilisation – Part One

Manu is a somewhat ambiguous figure because there is no evidence pointing to one particular character in one particular period of our history yet it’s thought that he or more likely a continuity of thinkers existing over the past three or four thousand years gave thought to how we could organise ourselves in relation to what is fair and just.

It seems most probable that as humanity began to develop permanent communities thanks to the advent of agriculture and improved technologies, thought was given to the organisation of social structures and the concept of the rights of individuals and the rights of societies.

We have seen all manner of societies come

Never Trust a Lawyer

A cautionary tale from the case files

How does an attorney sleep? Well, first he lies on one side, then he lies on the other and now from humour to fact: Dear Sir or Mdm, Many years ago I was happy with your service and more recently when I rang asking if you held any documentation in regards to my estate and for information in regard to hiring your service, the lady who identified herself immediately took control of the conversation and began asking questions in relation to making the document.

I thought at the time it was unnecessary and I had some difficulty getting a word in edgewise to actually ask what I really wanted to know which was

Amen

The word AMEN is one of civilisation’s grand deceptions

Amen is commonly used as a declaration of affirmation or agreement, a concluding word and a response to prayer as in the Hebrew אָמֵן, the Greek ἀμήν, Arabic آمِينَ, Amharic አሜን and in Christian English.

In modern use, amen is literally taken to mean; “The truth (subjective) has been spoken”. It can also be used to express strong agreement, as in, for instance, “certainly”, “to be sure” or “amen to that”. Other English translations of the word amen include “verily”, “truly”, and “so be it.”

Phonetically the A infers collusion and agreement to men as superior. The more drawn out use of AaaMenn (reflects a natural instinct for unity) ending hymns

Saving India

Articles 28, 29 30 of Indian Constitution, must be removed or amended

The overall situation in India is a consequence of 1000 years of occupation, brainwashing and other abuses. It’s my wish for greater social equity, and the value of Dharma to be recognised and uplifted. The removal or amendment of these articles will assist the emergence of a much truer vision of Sanatana Dharma as a science, a truer picture of Hindu history, facilitating the emergence of a more appropriate social and political responsibility.

Failure in this will encourage vested anti India organisations to continue wrecking havoc in the country so the government must be encouraged to amend these articles of

Who Were the Brahmins

The leaders who followed

We don’t know exactly when Indian society began to develop but is widely thought that pockets of what we can define as civilisation have existed on the Indian subcontinent continuously over the past seventy thousand years. But it’s only in the past ten thousand that what we can generally define as Hindu civilisation began to unify and flourish.

At one time the people were hunter gatherers as elsewhere in the world with Shamen developing spiritual concepts. You could say these Shamen were the original scientists questioning the nature of existence and it seems apparent from the evidence that in India the Shamen (also referred to as mystics and yogis) were numerous enough

A Sanskrit Glossary

Commonly used Sanskrit words used in Yoga and Dharma studies

Sanskrit is thought to be the world’s first language from which all have evolved or been influenced by. The sounds are primal and focussed on describing a world view based on the intrinsic nature of matter, and an internal world view describing the nature of mankind.

These words are used in books about Yoga, Buddhism and Hinduism and they are often a challenge to understand.

A.

Abhyasa: practice – the act of practising

Acharya: teacher

Adwaita a philosophy according to which there is no duality – only a singular state of consciousness

Agni: fire

Agnisar kriya: one of the shatkarmas (cleansing practices) -intestinal cleansing

Aham: ego

Ahimsa: a yoga Continue reading A Sanskrit Glossary

Why Remove Article 370?

A personal story of a policy dividing India today

What is Article 370? Get educated!

“Article 370 of the Indian constitution gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir—a state in India, located in the northern part of the Indian subcontinent, and a part of the larger region of Kashmir, which has been the subject of dispute between India, Pakistan, and China since 1947 allowing it to have a separate constitution, a state flag and autonomy over the internal administration of the state. The government of India revoked this special status in August 2019 through a Presidential Order and the passage of a resolution in Parliament.” ~ Wiki

It would be polite to say that Article 370 came about
