Happy Dussehra DASHA HARA is a Sanskrit word that means removal of ten bad qualities within you.
On the auspicious occasion of Dussehra, hear the tale of DASHA HARA – the removal of ten wicked qualities that reside within us. These vices are Kama vasana (Lust), Krodha (Anger), Moha (Attachment), Lobha (Greed), Mada (Over-Pride), Matsara (Jealousy), Swartha (Selfishness), Anyaaya (Injustice), Amanavta (Cruelty), and Ahankara (Ego).

सिद्धार्थ – that’s how we write SIDDHARTHA in Hindi/Sanskrit through the Devanagari script. Following is how this powerful name came into existence.
Noun: सिद्धार्थ (siddhā-rtha)
“He who has fulfilled the object (of his coming)”
Name of the great Buddha from shakya clan (Siddhartha).
One of the names for Bhagwan Shiv among his sahastra naam
Adjective सिद्धार्थ (siddhā-rtha)
One who has accomplished an aim or object, successful, prosperous
Leading to the goal, efficient, efficacious
One whose aim or intention is known
” was the original name of Buddha and a name which is formed of two words “Sidh” whose meaning is “perfect” and “Artha” whose meaning is “purpose” both are from the language of Sanskrit and combined they mean “the one who perfects ( sidh ) his purpose ( artha )”.
“Sidh” whose meaning is that which “achieves” and that which is “perfect” then expands and becomes “Siddha” whose meaning is “perfected” and “supernatural” and this is then seen in “Siddhanta” whose meaning is “the end ( anta ) of perfection ( siddha )”.
“Sidh” also becomes “Siddhi” whose meaning is “perfection” “skill” and “art” and this is seen in the “Asta Siddhis” which are the “eight ( asta ) perfections ( siddhi )” yogis who can become “larger than a planet” and “smaller than an atom”.
“Siddha” whose meaning is “perfection” can be seen in this verse from the Gita where “Siddhaye” and “Siddhanam” are translated as “perfection” the Gita spoken over 5000 years ago, long before the appearance of Buddha and the language of Pali.
“Out of the many thousands among men, one may endeavour for perfection, and of those who have achieved perfection, hardly one knows Me in truth.” Gita 7.3
“Sidh” expresses that which “binds one ( si ) to the motion ( h ) of light ( d )” as in the “light of the soul” as in the “light of illumination” while its secondary meanings of “beatitude” and “perfection” are an expression of mystical and spiritual states.
As it journeys to other languages “Sidh” is seen throughout Europe as “Sidus” a word from Latin whose meanings are “star” “group of stars” and “constellation” and “Sidereal” whose meaning is “starry” “astral” and that which belongs to the “constellations”.
Around the early 17th century Gallileo wrote his “Sidereus Nuncius” whose meaning was the “message from the stars” a message which announced his “clusters ( si ) of light ( d )” all of which move around the satellites of Jupiter thus proving the rotation of planets around the stars.
“Sidh” expresses the nature of Sanskrit, which expresses the nature of the Vedas, which expresses the nature of the divine, and this can be seen in words such as “Consider” whose meaning is to “observe ( con ) the stars ( sidus )” and also “Desire” which means to “long for ( de ) the stars ( sidus )”.
These words from the Ancient language of Sanskrit go back in time over 5000 years, long before the 2500 year old date for Panini, long before the 3500 year old date for the stone tablets of Armana, long before the 4000 year old date for the disappearance of Sarasvati, and long before Buddhism and the language of Pali.
The Role of Women in the Sanatan Dharma is held in high regard and it is a unique culture where the Divine is also represented as a woman in Vedic scriptures. However, in the name of so-called “feminism”, the true essence of womanhood has been distorted and led society astray.
We must recognize that the world faces many challenges, and women’s rights are among the most important issues we must address. The greatness of any society can be measured by how it treats its women. Unfortunately, women are often objectified and depicted in negative ways through advertisements and media, which represents a deep-seated mindset that must be eradicated. It is our duty to educate all men, regardless of their age, country, religion, or any other parameter.
We must look back to our Vedic roots, as India’s customs regarding women were severely impacted by centuries of invasions and foreign occupation. The careful protection of Hindu women became essential during those times. However, all aspects of Indian society suffered during the Islamic invasion and the subsequent British slavery and the British-imposed educational system. As a result, the pious role that comes most naturally to most women, that of wife and mother, the children’s first guru, the Shakti of the home, and the preserver-enhancer of the spiritual force field of the home and family, has been effectively disparaged.
Let us not forget the powerful words of the Rig Veda: “May you be empress and lead all.” It is time for us to embrace the true essence of womanhood and empower women to lead the way toward a better tomorrow.
“O brilliant woman, remove ignorance with your bright intellect and provide bliss to all.” ~ Rig Veda 4/14/3
“O woman, may you be strong and powerful as a rock. May you gain brilliance of the sun and have a long prosperous life that benefits all.” ~ Atharva Veda 14/1/47
“O woman, you provide bliss and stability to the world. You are the source of valour.” – Yajur Veda 10/26
“O woman, you are as strong as earth and are on a very high pedestal. Protect the world from the path of vices and violence.” ~ Yajur Veda 13/18
“O woman, you do not deserve to be defeated by challenges. You can defeat the mightiest challenge. Defeat the enemies and their armies. You have valour of thousands. Please us all.” ~ Yajur Veda 13/26
“O woman, realize your potential. You are a lioness who can destroy criminals, ignorance, and vices and protect the noble ones.” ~ Yajur Veda 5/10
“May the scholarly woman purify our lives with her knowledge, noble actions and guidance.” ~ Yajur Veda 20/84
“Noble woman motivates us to be on the path of truth, love, and harmony.” ~ Yajur Veda 20/85
“O woman, you are the motherly force that provides direction to our life.” ~ Rig Veda 2/41/16
“The way a powerful river breaks down even strongest rocks and hills, in the same manner, an intelligent woman destroys the fraud propagated by perverted ones. May we bow to such intelligent women.” ~ Rig Veda 6/61/2
“Whenever I am hurt emotionally or physically, woman – as a mother, wife, sister – provides healing touch and rejuvenates me. I bow in humble respect to her.” ~ Atharva Veda 7/57/1
“Noble woman motivates us to be on the path of truth, love and harmony.” ~ Yajur Veda 20/85
i would like to summarize this by saying – “It is the women of my life who have been the biggest pillar of support, thank you for everything you have ever done for me and other people in your life and for being who you are, you are the real creators.”

If you are really seeking to find the truth then Sivaom School of Yoga is what you need. For me it is a life changing point.
Learning yoga at the Sivaom School of Yoga was a journey of awakening and deep knowledge. Becoming a teacher is a great responsibility and one has to be very well prepared to manage with human body, mind and soul. Studying yoga at the Sivaom School of Yoga I was exposed to the original Vedic scriptures and was prepared by my GuruJi Siddthartha Shiv Khanna to be able to teach the Sivaom practice, developed by himself and that includes a union of the four main branches of Yoga (Raja, Karma, Jann and Bhakti). By practicing this combination of teachings we are enabled to bring ourselves in to balance and a perfect alignment between body, mind and soul.
The most authentic classes in Greece, is very important for the world to know that yoga its not just asan, I am very glad that the siva om school of yoga is out there spreading the real teachings! If you are looking for yoga classes or trainings thats the place you need.
Siddharth is a great teacher. Due to my constant back pain I had reached out to him to help me strengthen my back and get some movement. He guided me throughout the sessions and got me back to where I was able to go out for a walk and have confidence in myself that I could do things and have a normal life despite the constant back pain. Now I am mobile however it’s a work in progress and with Siddharth’s guidance I am sure we will get there.
I have attended a few other yoga classes but Siddhartha is the best yoga teacher....his way of teaching yoga not only gives you a healthy lifestyle changes your outlook on life making you a mentally stronger person ....SivaOm is a highly recommended place .
I had my first class at Sivaom school of yoga a few weeks before and it was a unique experience. What I loved most was the feeling coming close to myself, finding joy, connection and deep focus. Many teachers can teach you the physical alignment of yoga asanas but Siddharta spreads the teaching of enlightenment, showing others that the greatest kingdom one can have dominion over is the realm of the heart!
If you are looking for an authentic yoga experience or teacher training then I cannot recommend Sivaom school of yoga enough!! Siddhartha is a unique and extremely knowledgeable teacher, his classes offer a wealth of information, taught with humour and love with no question is left unanswered. I have done several trainings but none like Sivaoms teacher training. Highly, highly recommend, 5 stars are not enough🙏
Being the only yoga teacher from India in Greece it is a privilege for one to learn yoga from Siddhartha. Personally I have been to India and couldn't find the same quality of yoga class. Siddhartha eats, drinks and breathes yoga and takes his students' development and well-being very seriously. I highly recommend this school
