Women: Not Feminists

Modern feminism debunked

The dictionary definition of feminism is simply “believing in and working towards the economic, social, and political equality of the genders yet it has gone much further in practise. The modern leftist feminism has become yet another monster in the room.

Feminism has become become more about women dominating and controlling men yet it’s also become another thing to being hijacked by people with strong political views. Under the umbrella of feminism, feminists march on the streets demanding that presidents must go and their view of the world is correct and if you don’t like it, you’d better shut the fuck up because they’re right. But there are all sorts of feminists, some push for equal pay

The Surrendered Single 

A Practical Guide to Attracting and Marrying the Man Who’s Right for You

By Lisa Doyle

This controversial approach to dating has given thousands of single women everything they need to attract romance, intimacy, and a marriage proposal – while answering the question, “Where are all the good men?”

A Surrendered Single doesn’t have to look for Mr. Right – she attracts him.

In her popular workshops, Laura Doyle has taught thousands of accomplished women the principles of The Surrendered Single. They are simple: when you try to control who asks you out, when a man will call, or corner him into a commitment, you drive him away. When you let him woo you instead, tenderness and romance appear. You

What is Dharma?

A mystery to those not knowing the essence of life

To get the best from life, you must love life and treat it with love.Via Vogue and lemonade

Dharma is living in accord with life while sustaining what is known and fruitful for all life.

In other words, to know Dharma in its fullness you must know life in its fullness and that is something few people achieve in their lifetimes. Therefore to know Dharma as a layperson without access to the accumulated knowledge of Vedanta requires a relaxation of beliefs and an openness to explore.

To put it simply, Dharma is a way of being in the world that sustains

Caste and Class

Social divisions throughout history

In looking at the world we have naturalism which sees biology as being the determining factor in life, modern humanism that sees cultural norms as the defining factor which is where we are now, yet this is based on the perception of power and possession of animalism or base survival.

The natural world isn’t fair, just or kind. It’s a place where the strong dominate, exploit, use or even kill the weak because it’s the natural order of life. In the race for survival, the fittest and strongest life-form on Earth are humans. The natural world is not devoid of compassion and kindness, it’s just that the more powerful rule over the weaker and from a

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.

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.


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


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,
