Siva and Shiva West of India

The root and extent of life

“When we say “Shiva,” there are two fundamental aspects that we are referring to. The word “Shiva” means literally, “that which is not.” On another level, when we say “Shiva,” we are referring to a certain yogi, the Adiyogi or the first yogi, and also the Adi Guru, the first Guru.” ~ Sadhguru

Shiva today is mostly associated with India, Yoga and Hinduism. But the concepts represented by Shiva were once universal before the development of modern civilisation. Below, Dr Naila Hussain explains the significance of Shiva in Arabia.

Invocation:

ॐ नमः शिवाय Aum Namah Shivaya

SubhanAllah wa bihamdihi

Origins of Mathematics

A secret history

Today there would be no software, no binary computing, accounting or the sciences if there was no zero and the Indian numericals all modern science and technology is based on.

This includes the branches of Math : arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, conics, astronomy, calculus, etc.

Ancient Hindus deviced an amazing system of math codes using syllables and then creating sutras [aphorisms] & mantras [chants] with that that gave a student instant idea of the mathematical applications.

This sutra is endowed with spiritual content as well as mathematical significance: gopi bhagya madhuvrta, srngiso dadhi sandhiga, khla jivita khatva, gala hala rasandara It translates: O Lord anointed with the yogurt of the milkmaids’ worship, O saviour of the fallen,

Sacred Sexuality

Into the Realm of Bliss and Wholeness with Sacred Sexuality

Sacred Sex Art from Khajuraho, India

Sacred sexuality has had a great deal of press in recent years however with new avenues of research and new understandings, these ideas are spreading within the wider community. There are those who continue to disparage this work, but they are an increasing minority.

It is hoped that the casual reader may get that sexuality has nothing to do with morals or social rules, it is more to do with a divine connection which occurs in the hearts of lovers and is fuelled by real intimacy and sex is only a part of that conversation.

Sacred sexuality is not about having

An End to Life

With dignity and self determination

George woke up feeling pleased to be alive, he slid back the blankets, swung his feet to the floor and as usual Kate who had also woken began verbally itemising the things she wanted to happen that day. George had long ago learned not to comment, he walked to the window and drew back the curtain allowing the room to fill with the morning light.

He sat on the bed, gave his wife a good morning kiss and told her that mow the lawns before lunch as it was one of the tasks that he had agreed on yesterday and Kate itemised moments ago as a reminder. He had not forgotten even though she often

The Kama Shastra: Beyond Sex

Sexuality and the human condition in spiritual context

By Gauri Mataji Devi

Many people have heard about the Kama sutra, but generally the ideas that circulate are rather distorted, vague and confused by ignorance and prejudice. Such prejudice is mostly due to the cultural superimposition of layers of prude bigotry and self-righteous moralism brought by iconoclastic Islamic dominator’s and later by Victorian British Christians.

Enforced by the abrahamic invaders, the wholesale condemnation of the intrinsic beauty and joy of the natural form and activities of the body, effectively destroyed the Vedic expressions of beauty and joy, or covered them with the thick plaster of shame.

And that’s not simply a manner of speaking: plaster physically obliterated

Osho

The controversial yogi

Osho was born 11 December 1931 and departed this life 19 January 1990

Born Chandra Mohan Jain, and like a chameleon, Osho was known as Acharya Rajneesh during the 1960s, as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh during the 1970s and 1980s and as Osho from 1989. Over his lifetime, he became an Indian mystic and spiritual teacher (guru) with a large international following.

As a professor of philosophy, he travelled throughout India in the 1960s as a public speaker and his outspoken criticism of socialism, Mahatma Gandhi and institutionalised religions which made him controversial. He also advocated a more open attitude towards sexuality: a stance that earned him the sobriquet “sex guru” in the Indian and later international press.

Homelessness

Symptomatic of disease and not the real problem

If you think for a moment that of all the people on this planet we call Earth, on this planet that we are entirely dependent for our continued existence, and the fact that we have no idea what we are doing here beyond survival and a few trivial pursuit’s, a third of the worlds population is always hungry and malnourished.

In the Western world we have the increasing problem of homelessness and this is symptomatic of a civilisational disease and the only cure or solution to this problem is by healing the problems within civilisation.

The problems within civilisation have been developing, festering over thousands of years and are not new. The

Why Meditation?

A foundational practise

Most people understand that activities go better with some planning and while some things that occur spontaneously can be brilliant, some can go horribly wrong. Meditation grounds us in a reality that leads to a harmonious life and success.

Whatever we do, we want to be successful but sometimes the best planning and our most sincere actions don’t always result in success. But if we look at some of the people who meditate, they range from executives within the world’s most successful companies to ordinary people who want to achieve the best out of life.

Many meditators say that meditation is actually instinctive and this is borne out by the fact that usually before we commence any
