Don’t stigmatise eclipse

On the eclipse day, last Sunday, from early morning, I was flooded with calls from all those seeking to learn how to mitigate its curse.  They wanted to know: Is it necessary to observe fast during the eclipse time? Why no cooked food should be kept in house during eclipse? A detailed list of food grains identified with each zodiac sign (Moon sign of an individual) that should be offered to pundits to ward off {…}

The effect of an eclipse

We will be witnessing Annular Solar Eclipse today. For more than a fortnight, the so called self-acclaimed arbiters of people’s destiny – half knowing astrologers – have been foul mouthing on U tube channels on pitfalls in individual life because of this eclipse.  They have been scaring people born with Gemini, Scorpion and Capricorn as their Moon signs about impending danger in their lives. Insensibly inducing a sense of fear in people’s mind is simply {…}

Freewill can reshape destiny

Having shared the construct of mind and its operative mechanism as detailed in the previous issue, I will now give you an insight into the chemistry of mind. As explained earlier, we begin life with inherent desire and mind trends, coming as they may as a carryover from the past birth. Accordingly, mind involuntarily develops individual specific beliefs that set into motion desire trends, which in turn, excite corresponding thoughts. Some of these thoughts gravitate, {…}

Awareness for mindpower

Continuing from where we left last week, it comes out that ‘Freewill’ serves as a double-edged sword. If, on one hand, it binds you to fate, at the same time, it also enjoins you with the potential to come out of its limitations. What choice to make, remains the prerogative of ‘ahamkara’ (Ego consciousness). The paradox, however, is that we are all born with inherent desire and mind-trends, coming as they may as Karmic carryover {…}

Freewill Versus Fate

It is in human nature to look towards a better tomorrow. So, invariably we begin life with high hopes and aspirations. Accordingly, we set our dream destination. Dreams are necessary for reaching heights one is capable of, as they serve a focus to reach an objective. Since time immemorial the Moon fascinated and evoked man’s curiosity, seen every day – yet unknown. A longing to know and understand, it led scientists to send man on {…}

Be live to collective obligations

Pursuing Dhyana, we have already seen how mind becomes free from all thought imprints, thus becoming free from all limitations and preconditioning thereto.  Full landscape of mind then becomes accessible, offering its wholesome powers.  Also, it makes one look at options in hand with an open mind, whereby one could see things in the right perspective due.  You could then make right choices in life. It is important to note here that mind is just {…}

Contextual Meditation – A self healing process

Since ancient times, 112 methods of attaining the state Yoga are known.  Meanwhile, a good number of new methods, improvised by many experts all across, are also in evidence.  The obvious question now is: Which one out of them to pick up that may prove the best? You can’t anyway evaluate and rate them, as all are equally potent.  Based on my experience, I suggest Contextual Meditation.  It very well follows the footprints of none {…}

Dhyana for self-empowerment

  Moving on from lessons in how to relax and then detoxify the mind, in the previous issues, it’s time now to explore ways and means to access wholesome powers of mind and come out with one’s best. Remember, the power latent in mind is immense mostly lying dormant out of ignorance, which if unfolded in full would has no bounds.  The paradox, however, is that ordinary mortals are hardly able to use five to {…}

Be alert to live mindfully

It is time now to see how we can reinvent the mind to come out with its wholesome power, which, if unfolded in full, would know no limits.  But before that, let us go through a case study, how important it is to address one’s habit tendencies.  The person under consideration was brought for counselling a couple of years back by his family members, worried about his erratic behaviour.  He was made aware of all {…}

Detoxify your mind

To continue from where we left in the previous issue, let me now relate a story believed to be associated with Lord Buddha.  For, it will explain the rationale behind the simple process suggested for relaxing the mind.  Buddha was travelling with his disciples when he felt thirsty.  So, he camped and then asked a disciple to fetch water from a nearby water stream.  As the disciple was approaching the stream, he saw an animal {…}
