Brahma Kumari – a course on meditation

I recently completed a meditation course offered by Brahma Kumari center. It was a wonderful experience to go through the meditation process.

It really helped to differentiate between Bhakti, meditation, penance and gyan Marg. My reasons of going through various processes is to understand their impact on our mind and how it can bring change within us. Yes I found this to be really calming and relaxing. I guess that is what people want in today’s stressful life.

Brahma kumari has 9000 centers across the world. Presence in more than 100 countries. Silent but dedicated work towards humanity.

The theory is bit different from our scriptures but still have adapted a lot from Hindu belief system. Though they don’t identify themselves as religious organisation. It is more of a spiritual center to uplift our soul and cleanse our karma.

Is number of rapes really growing in India?

There is a growing outcry for one particular rape happened in india which is not even proved to be rape. But every media wants to take a pie out of it. I still have to find someone who will analysis the reasons behind this growing number.

Let me first clarify that though being such huge country, India’s number in violence against women is at much lower end compare to any so called developed countries. Our cultural heritage is still working and we are still far better than the western world.

So what’s the reason behind this growing number. First is availability of pornography even in small villages through internet and mobile. This unusual exposure of such movies made in Hollywood definitely works on psychi of the people, as such our women in small villages are not easily visible and that makes a man desperate.

It’s an urge to spiritual gurus to talk about it openly when you go to smaller towns and villages.

Second is Bollywood, earlier our actresses used to dance for one particular lover, many times in the rain too. But off lately they have started dancing for hundreds of men enticing them and inviting them, mostly men of smaller towns are shown on the screen. What do u expect from a drunk and an illiterate man after watching all these.

Third is belief of particular class of people who think women are only to produce kids, they don’t have soul and they can women abuse however they want to. It is believed to be most dangerous than anything else. As they will justify any crimes on the name of belief system.

I always find it quite surprising when western media talks about rape cases in India. There universities are the biggest center of atrocities against women. It is just they know how to hide it from the world and their media is fully controlled by corporate and politicians. That is where we are heading too.

It’s also time that we question the integrity of the media as they have become mere instruments of other forces to modify everything according to the external forces’ agenda. It’s very naive of us to believe whatever they say. Thanks to internet and social media for revealing many truths which were hidden for so many years. But eventually they will also be fully controlled and manipulated by corporate.

Celebrating Akshay tritiya

It’s Akshay tritiya today. Astrologically it is one of the best days to improve your good luck rapidly and remove hurdles from current any outstanding matter:

It’s a special occasion that happens once every year whereby the Sun and the moon are in exalted positions, at the peak of their astrological power, which usually happens in the month of late April to early May.

It is called “Akshaya Tritiya” the eagerly awaited day which multiplies your prosperity. It is also known as Akha Teej, is one of the most auspicious days .

Derived from the Sanskrit word Akshaya, which means never diminishing,

imperishable, and eternal, the day is believed to bring in good luck and success, of which every moment is auspicious. It is believed that sacred deeds (Punya Karya) performed on this day never go unnoticed and that starting a new venture or investing in valuables doesn’t end without fruitful rewards. Hence the benefits of doing any jaap (chanting) and  charity on this day never diminish and remain with the person forever.

Do the following as much as you can and whatever is applicable to you….

1.Sign any important papers.The day is considered auspicious for starting new ventures. It’s said that any venture initiated on the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya will continue to grow and bring prosperity.

2. This applies to any regiment big or small. Important beginnings like starting a spiritual sadhana, setting up a new business, starting construction for a project, buying property, gold or any jewellary, fixing dates of any event or any kind of event. Making down payment any higher purchase.

8. If you have a safe in the house try to make it neat and tidy. Try to add some new valuables and pinch of rice in it.

10. If you are in any positive relationship i.e business or personal,  then show the partner(s) gratitude and appreciation. Verbalize your commitment for a long enduring journey together with the partner(s) .

11. Write in a personal golden book, whatever  wishes you desire to materialise eg. I am reducing weight;  my turnover is increasing in business;  I  am happy in married life etc.

12.The benfits of taking a bath in the Ganga river, doing Vishnu pooja or any prayers, doing charity on this day ,never diminish and they prove fruitful. If not possible this then I suggest sprinkle few drops of Holy water or Ganges water over your head tomorrow .

13.If Lakshmi pooja is done on this day, it brings prosperity.

14.Feeding the poor on this day is considered auspicious.

15. Good day to start any sadhana or vrat, prayer etc.

Oceans filled with plastics

An unfortunate story of oceans. We have abused it like anything. Those who swear by modern science, can u pls give one example of modern innovation which has no ill effect on nature or our health. One example will suffice. I can fill thousands of pages with the side effects every modern amenity which we crave for and run after.

Imagine your life living in a clean environment, clean water and healthy food. Have we evolved? Or gone worse than where we were few hundred years back.

The crass materialistic desire which is named as progress has killed so many millions of species on the earth and we still dream of having better world.

Please wake up.

Adapt a simple, minimalistic and Indian traditional lifestyle. As that is the only savior on the earth.

BJP foundation day

Exactly 38 years ago, on 6 April 1980, Bharatiya Janata Party was founded with Atal Bihari Vajpayee as the first party president. The foundation of the party goes back to the 1950s when Shyama Prasad Mukherjee founded the Jana Sangh. Starting with a 10 member Jana Sangh, the BJP is the largest party today with 11 crore members.

.

In the 1984 Loksabha elections, BJP which started with just 2 MPs in the Lok Sabha today has 272+ members. More importantly, the party is in power in 22 states of India. The journey from just 10 members to 11 crore members…From 2 seats to 273 seats… From non-significant to the largest power has been a long and tough journey.

Generations after generations have sacrificed everything , at times even their lives, to take the party to this height. Boycotted, insulted, beaten, assaulted, co-workers murdered, the workers have never compromised with the ideologies and principles.

The leadership of Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, Kushabhau Thackeray, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Lalkrishna Advani, Pramod Mahajan, Murli Manohar Joshi have taken the party to new heights with every passing year. If there was a duo which built the party brick by brick in the era when there was no internet, mobile, social outreach, it was the duo of Atal Ji – Advani Ji.

In the current post-Vajpayee era, it has been the duo of Narendra Modi and Amit Shah who have taken us to the zenith. Their determination, hard work, vision, integrity and work has helped BJP form government in states where we couldn’t even think to win a single seat a few years ago.

On this foundation day, let us remember all the leaders, every Karyakarta and member who sacrificed everything selflessly, humiliated, were assaulted, wrongly put behind the bars, or even murdered by those who couldn’t stand the resurging party and its ideology. The principles and ideologies run deep in our blood and there won’t be any compromise as far as Nation is concerned. We will continue to grow in strength.

As Atal Ji had said,

“अंधेरा छटेगा, कमल खिलेगा ।” The lotus will continue to bloom in its full glory.

Chan man jitva jaiye

I saw a very good Gujarati movie – Chan man jitva jaiye. A very meaningful Gujarati movie after a long time. A good food for thought. It’s a must see for business community specially those who have made money through short cuts and by cheating people, banks and government.

It has got released at the right time when india is seeing so many financial scandals and government is running pillar to post to grab them.

It has a message for everyone to learn and implement. Even if u r not Gujarati, go for it. You will get the message through sub titles.
