The Fascination with Yoga

The purpose of YOGA

Understanding the Purpose of Yoga

The purpose of YOGA, in the spiritual and adhyatmik sense, Yoga aims to achieve a connection with the “self” beyond the aham (ego), known as the Aatma (soul), and then link the Aatma with Paramatma (sometimes also referred to as The Supreme Soul or the Supreme Shiv Consciousness or Brahman or Ishvar depending upon the tradition you follow). This union aims to grant us Moksha, freeing us from the repeated cycle of birth, death, and rebirth, which is filled with suffering. The ultimate goal of Yoga involves overcoming the attachments and desires of the body and mind and establishing a connection with the soul, which is not a separate entity, but rather an integral part of a larger consciousness.

The purpose of YOGA in Ancient Bharat

In the ancient kingdom of Bharat, named after the great world-conquering and uniting king Bharat, many yogis (those who followed the path of yoga to achieve enlightenment) and rishis (enlightened beings who perceive unfiltered cosmic truth) dedicated their lives to studying Yoga and its teachings. They discovered that among all that exists in the cosmos, Yoga may be humanity’s greatest gift, offering a systematic path that, when followed, can lead to Moksha – the ultimate liberation from the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth.

The Fascination with the Purpose of YOGA

The yogis, constantly seeking higher truths, found the path and purpose of Yoga fascinating. They noted that Yoga also serves as the perfect path to free individuals from the accumulation of their Samskara. Samskara refers to the deep, impactful impressions on our consciousness left by all our thoughts, words, and actions in both this life and previous lives. The yogis recognized that Yoga provides a means to purify the soul and transcend the limitations of the physical body and the impulses of the mind.

Loss and Rediscovery of Yoga’s Wisdom

However, many unfortunate tides of time have led to a significant loss of Yoga’s ancient knowledge during the troubled times of the Muslim invasion of India and the subsequent ban of Yoga during Christian occupation. It is disheartening to witness the loss of much of the wisdom from Ancient Bharat due to these invasions. The invaders specifically targeted universities and intellectuals as a strategy.

Preserving and Spreading Yoga’s Teachings

We must remain hopeful as some of the important teachings persist, and many of the teachings of Yoga are also experiencing rediscovery and sharing with the world. With awareness of this newfound knowledge, we must stay dedicated to not only preserving the teachings authentically but also spreading them and aiding others in finding their path to liberation.

Complete Hanuman Chalisa in Hindi and English

Introduction to the Hanuman Chalisa

The complete Hanuman Chalisa in Hindi and English, a devotional hymn to the Yogic deity Hanuman, is one of the most famous prayers in India. It is from perhaps the greatest literary work of India: the Ramcharitramanas by Tulsidas.

Inspiration and Origin

Tulsidas, a great devotee of Bhagwan Ram ji, was inspired to write the Hanuman Chalisa in the 16th century. It is said that he wrote the Chalisa on the banks of the river Ganges in the city of Varanasi, after being visited by Bhagwan Hanuman in a dream. Tulsidas was amazed by the power and devotion of Hanuman and thus wrote the Hanuman Chalisa in praise of him.

Style and Content

The style of Tulsidas as reflected in the Hanuman Chalisa reflects both the devotional and philosophical aspects of the yogic traditions. The Chalisa starts with the invocation of Bhagwan Hanuman and his many divine qualities. It talks about his strength, courage, and devotion to Bhagwan Ram ji.

Personal Experience and Testimony

This is one mantra I have used since childhood, and hence I vouch for it based on experiencing the glory of what it has helped me achieve in life.

Bhagavad Gita’s Timeless Wisdom: Predicting the Modern World’s Struggles

In the fast-paced and ever-changing world we live in, it’s often enlightening to turn to ancient texts for wisdom and insight. One such timeless scripture is the Bhagavad Gita, which remarkably predicted the challenges and dynamics of our modern society over 5,700 years ago. In this blog post, I will take you on a journey through the verses of the Bhagavad Gita that accurately foreshadow the state of affairs in today’s world.

Bhagavad Gita's Timeless Wisdom
Kaliyug (the dark age of demon Kali) began with the onset of the Mahabharat War about 5700 years ago

The Diminishing Virtues

Reflections on Modern Society:

The Bhagavad Gita’s foresight into the erosion of virtues resonates deeply with the contemporary challenges faced by humanity. From truthfulness to mercy, the fabric of moral integrity is unraveling under the sway of Kali Yuga’s influence.

Wealth as a Benchmark

Rethinking Success:

In a world obsessed with material wealth, the Gita’s prediction underscores the need to reassess our definition of success. True worth lies not in possessions but in the richness of character and compassion.

Superficial Attraction and Deceit in Relationships

Navigating Relationship Dynamics:

The Gita’s insight into superficial relationships and deceit in commerce sheds light on the complexities of modern-day interactions. Authenticity and integrity emerge as guiding principles amidst the maze of superficiality.

External Symbols vs. True Spirituality

Cultivating Inner Depth:

Amidst the clamor for external validation, the Gita’s wisdom encourages us to seek spirituality beyond mere symbols. True growth stems from inner transformation rather than outward displays.

Hypocrisy Accepted as Virtue

Embracing Authenticity:

In a world where hypocrisy is often tolerated, the Gita’s warning serves as a call to authenticity and integrity. Upholding virtues in the face of societal pressures becomes a cornerstone of spiritual resilience.

The Shift in Sacred Places

Rediscovering Sacredness:

As sacredness is commodified, the Gita prompts us to reclaim the spiritual essence of our surroundings. Beyond superficiality lies the profound sanctity of the divine, waiting to be rediscovered.

The Triumph of the Strongest

Navigating Political Realities:

In an era marked by power struggles, the Gita’s insight into political dynamics reminds us of the transient nature of authority. True strength lies not in domination but in service and compassion.

Struggles of Survival

Addressing Economic Inequities:

The Gita’s acknowledgment of famine and taxation parallels contemporary socioeconomic challenges. Empathy and collective action emerge as antidotes to the disparities of wealth and opportunity.

Climate and Societal Issues

Confronting Global Crises:

The Gita’s foresight into environmental and societal upheavals urges us to confront the pressing issues of our time. From climate change to mental health, proactive measures are essential for a sustainable future.

The Bhagavad Gita serves as a beacon of guidance in navigating the complexities of Kali Yuga. By embracing its teachings and incorporating transformative practices into our daily lives, we can transcend the shadows of materialism and reclaim the path of spiritual enlightenment. As we strive for personal growth and collective well-being, let us heed the Gita’s timeless wisdom and embark on a journey towards inner harmony and societal renewal.

Guru Shri Siddhartha meditating in upper Himalayas

Who is a successful yoga teacher

who is a successful yoga teacher ?
Is it someone who spreads yoga ?
Is it someone who markets and creates a niche for him/her ?
Is it someone who can help you evolve spiritually ?
Is it someone who can do those body bending asans ?

I clearly remember the day when I decided to become a yoga teacher. I never wanted to be the best yoga teacher, I just wanted to teach yoga. I just wanted to spread the true traditional message of yogic philosophy, I just wanted the world to stand up and notice how beautiful my culture and traditions are, I just wanted to rid the world of those false yoga teachers who tarnish the image of yoga and yogic philosophy and provide false information in the name of yoga. But most of all I just wanted to provide a safe way of healing and raising the consciousness of the people of this world and help them overcome their mental and physical wounds.

I still think that I might never become a teacher for I will always have many things to learn from the people of this world and the world itself, perhaps at best, I will always be a student in this life regardless of what others call me. I still have many shortcomings and I can’t dare to call myself a yogi, I have some ways to cross before I Recognize myself as a yogi, but I’m not giving up, because I have come a long way in my journey and discovered many things about myself and this world. The best thing about this journey is, that every day is beautiful and every second of life is blissful. I have also realised, Perhaps yoga is for everyone but not everyone is for yoga, and that is fine…

The Genesis of My Yoga Journey

My journey began with a simple desire – to teach yoga and share its profound benefits with others. However, as I immersed myself deeper into the practice, I realized that yoga was much more than just physical postures. It was a holistic approach to life, encompassing mind, body, and spirit.

Discovering the True Essence of Yoga

As I delved deeper into the practice, I began to uncover the true essence of yoga – a journey of self-discovery and inner transformation. Through meditation, breathwork, and self-reflection, I learned to connect with my true self and cultivate a sense of inner peace and harmony.

Overcoming Challenges on the Path

Like any journey, my path to becoming a yoga teacher was not without its challenges. There were moments of self-doubt, setbacks, and obstacles along the way. However, through perseverance and dedication, I learned to embrace these challenges as opportunities for growth and self-improvement.

The Desire to Spread Authentic Yogic Philosophy

One of my driving motivations for becoming a yoga teacher was the desire to spread authentic yogic philosophy. In a world saturated with misinformation and the commercialization of yoga, I felt compelled to uphold the true teachings of yoga and dispel any misconceptions.

Embracing the Role of a Forever Student

Despite my journey to becoming a yoga teacher, I recognize that I am, and always will be, a student of yoga. There is always more to learn, explore, and experience on this path, and I embrace the role of a forever student with humility and gratitude.

The Beauty of Every Moment in the Journey

One of the greatest lessons I have learned on this journey is to appreciate the beauty of every moment. Whether it’s the stillness of meditation, the challenge of a difficult pose, or the joy of teaching others, every moment is a precious gift to be savored and cherished.

Understanding that Yoga is for Everyone, But Not Everyone is for Yoga

Through my journey, I have come to understand that while yoga is for everyone, not everyone is ready or willing to embrace its teachings. And that’s okay. Yoga is a personal journey, and each individual must find their own path in their own time.

As I reflect on my journey to becoming a yoga teacher, I am filled with gratitude for the experiences, lessons, and growth it has brought into my life. Though the path may be challenging at times, the rewards far outweigh the struggles. And as I continue on this journey, I am reminded that the true beauty of yoga lies not in the destination, but in the journey itself.

Hanuman Asana - Om Hanumate Namah

Hanuman Jayanti

From the point of view of yoga, today we celebrate the birth of Bhagwan Hanuman ji and look at the greatest soul who through the power of his Bhakti became the next Brahma in line in the next cosmic creation. If we look for the greatest master of Bhakti yoga, we will realise that there are more than one interpretations available for Hanuman ji.

As “Hanuman,” he is the one without any doubt (anuman) as to the existence of Ram (God).

As Anjaniputra, he is the one who comes accidentally into this world, but by his efforts ascends to the greater heights of spiritual evolution.

As Vayuputra he is the breath body in us and can help the lower self (Sita) that is lost to ignorance to reunite with its true companion, the inner soul (Ram). As Veeranjaneya, he is the source of courage and confidence for many a timid heart.

As Bajarangbali, he is strong in both devotion and physical strength. He is an ocean of virtues and friend of the pure hearted. He loves the ascetic qualities in man because only those who are detached and mentally free from the luxuries of life and desires of their bodies can truly concentrate on the divine and attain Him.

In the macrocosm Ram represents the Supreme Self and Hanuman as his devotee, the individual Self. Within in the microcosm of the embodied Self (jiva), Ram represents the embodied Self, who is caught in the cycle of births and deaths (Samsara). Sita represents the physical Self or mind and the body complex (Kshetra). Ravana with his ten heads represents the ego with ten senses which have fallen into evil ways. Hanuman ji represents, the breath. When ego and the senses carry away the mind and body and put them to wrong use, with the help of breath the embodied soul restrains the senses, silences the ego, regains the control of the mind and body and stabilises them in the contemplation of God.

Here are 2 important mantras for Bhagwan hanuman ji

  • ॐ हनुमते नमः |
  • Om Hanumate Namah
  • ॐ आञ्जनेयाय विद्महे वायुपुत्राय धीमहि।
    तन्नो हनुमत् प्रचोदयात्॥
  • Om Anjaneyaya Vidmahe Vayuputraya Dhimahi।
    Tanno Hanumat Prachodayat॥

May the power of the maha mantra “Om Namah Shivay” lead you to success in yoga…

Is Knowledge Enough, or Is It Just Not Enough?

Embarking on a Journey of knowledge

Within the realm of existence, sentient beings are divided into two distinct categories based on their approach to the divine. The first category comprises beings who, through the path of knowledge, use faculties of their intellect, and embark on a journey of profound inquiry to comprehend the immeasurable expanse of Bhagwan Shiv ji.

Seeking Understanding through Reason

These beings meticulously weigh and measure, attempting to encapsulate the boundless within the confines of their limited understanding. With meticulous precision, they endeavor to fathom the depths of His divine essence, employing the scales of discernment and reason.

Forging a Connection with Ishwar

Their ardent quest drives them to forge a connection between their mortal selves and the omnipotent Ishwar, creating a sacred abode within the recesses of their own minds. Through their inner contemplation and meditative introspection, they fashion a space where the resplendent radiance of Shiv and Shakti can find refuge and solace. It is within this ethereal dwelling, nurtured by their intellectual prowess, that they perceive and commune with the enigmatic presence of the Divine.

Is Knowledge Enough, or Is It Just Not Enough? There are 2 Paths: one defined by intellectual inquiry, & another where the seeker surrenders

Discovering a Deeper Connection

Beyond the realm of analytical pursuit, lies another enigmatic plane of existence. Here, beings of a distinctive disposition dwell, whose hearts serve as the sanctum for the eternal presence of Shiv. Theirs is a journey where mere knowledge is not enough.

Forging an Ineffable Bond

Deep within the recesses of their souls, an ineffable connection is forged, intertwining their very essence with the divine essence of the Ishwar Himself. These blessed souls, touched by a mystic fervor, have attained the divine grace that resides solely within the inner sanctum of their being.

Experiencing Divine Unity

In this sacred space, the cosmic dance of the divine unfolds, as the seeker merges effortlessly with the sought. Their hearts, aflame with an ardor that transcends the limits of mortal perception, become the divine dwelling wherein Shiv, the supreme consciousness, finds eternal abode.

Embracing Unity Beyond Knowledge

Here, the seeker becomes the sought, and the dance of duality dissolves into a state of sublime unity. In this state, the blessed ones experience the divine vision, beholding the ineffable beauty and grace of the Lord in all His resplendent glory.

Convergence of Paths

We encounter two distinct paths: one defined by intellectual inquiry, where the seeker traverses the realm of thoughts and concepts in search of Shiv, and another where the seeker surrenders their very being, becoming a sacred vessel for the divine presence to reside. Both paths bear the potential for divine realization, and it is in the convergence of these paths that the mystery of Shiv’s essence unfolds, enveloping the seeker in a realm of mystic transcendence and boundless love.

A Yogis' Dharma

A Yogi’s Dharma is the best way in kaliyug

Unveiling the Components of A Yogi’s Dharma

To comprehend the significance of A Yogi’s Dharma we must understand yoga. To understand what I say and why I say it, it’s imperative to delve into the narrative of Kaliyug. However, let’s embark on our journey by understanding the fundamental components of A Yogi’s Dharma. Symbolically represented as a bull with four legs, the choice of the bull signifies its innate nature of perseverance and tireless effort, intertwined with the association with Bhagwan Shiv. Each leg symbolizes a unique facet for Dharma to thrive:

1) Tapasya = Austerity

2) Shauch = Purity

3) Daya = Kindness

4) Satya = Truth

“तपः शौचं दया सत्यं इति पादाः कृते कृताः |
अधर्मांशैस्त्रयो भग्नाः स्मयसङ्गमदैस्तव ||”

A Yogi's Dharma

The Erosion of Dharma Across Yugas

During Satya Yuga, the bull of Dharma stands firmly on all four legs. However, as the epochs transition, the integrity of Dharma gradually deteriorates:

In Treta Yuga:

Tapasya diminishes, signifying the infiltration of darkness into a quarter of the world.

In Dwapara Yuga:

Shauch is lost, with only half the populace engaged in higher pursuits and maintaining purity of heart.

In Kali Yuga:

Dharma remains crippled, supported by only one leg, and by the end of this epoch, even Satya wanes. This epoch witnesses the majority of the world consumed by egoism and sensual gratification, neglecting higher aspirations.

Navigating Through Kali Yuga

We find ourselves in the era of Kaliyug, where every step we take determines our trajectory toward divinity or self-destruction. It’s incumbent upon us to tread cautiously, fostering habits that draw us closer to the Supreme Shiv Consciousness. Mind you, we are not referring to Mother Goddess Kali; rather, we speak of the demon Kali. The significant difference lies in the fact that Mother Goddess Kali aids us in transcending Kaal and Maya. On the other hand, Rakshas Kali further binds us in Maya, subjugating our ego and diverting us from our higher Supreme Shiv Consciousness.

Upholding the Flag Bearers of Dharma

Amidst the potent influence of Kali Yuga, truth steadily corrodes as the dark age progresses. Yet, as long as life endures, endeavor to resurrect the virtues that epitomize Dharma. Walk the path of truth, for it is through truth that the divine beauty of Shiva is realized – “Satyam-Shivam-Sundaram.”

The Unfolding of Kali Yuga’s Timeline

Spanning 432,000 years (equivalent to 1,200 divine years), Kali Yuga commenced 5,124 years ago, leaving 426,876 years until its culmination in 428,899 CE. If Kali Yuga were analogous to a human lifespan of 100 years, its current duration corresponds to approximately one year and two months.

Contemplating the Unaware Child of Kali Yuga

Visualize Kaliyug as an oblivious child newly arrived in this world. Reflect on the havoc wreaked by the ongoing challenges. If this is the chaos in its nascent state of unawareness, envision the potential tumult as it matures, akin to an adolescent, a robust youth, and a reluctant elder unwilling to relinquish its grip on life.

Here are some shocking predictions about Kaliyug:

  1. In Kali Yuga, wealth alone will signify a man’s good birth, proper behavior, and fine qualities. Law and justice will apply solely based on one’s power.
  2. Men and women will cohabit merely due to superficial attraction, and success in business will rely on deceit. Womanliness and manliness will be assessed according to expertise in sex, and a man will be considered a Brahmana simply by wearing a thread.
  3. As the earth becomes crowded with a corrupt population, whoever among any of the social classes proves to be the strongest will gain political power.
  4. Citizens will suffer greatly from cold, wind, heat, rain, and snow. They will also endure quarrels, hunger, thirst, disease, and severe anxiety.
  5. Men will neglect their elderly parents.
  6. Thieves will dominate cities, the Vedas will be tainted by speculative interpretations of atheists, political leaders will virtually exploit the citizens, and the so-called priests and intellectuals will prioritize their bellies and genitals.
  7. Servants will abandon a master who loses his wealth, even if that master is a saintly person of exemplary character. Masters will forsake an incapacitated servant, even if that servant has been in the family for generations.
  8. In Kali-yuga, men will harbor hatred for each other even over a few coins. They will forsake all friendly relations, willing to risk their lives and kill even their own relatives.
  9. Uncultured men will accept charity on behalf of the Lord and will earn their livelihood by pretending austerity and wearing a mendicant’s dress. Those ignorant of religion will assume authority and presume to speak on religious principles.
  10. The maximum human lifespan in Kali Yuga will diminish to 50 years.
  11. Religion, truthfulness, cleanliness, tolerance, mercy, lifespan, physical strength, and memory will all decline day by day due to the powerful influence of the age of Kali.

Bhagwan Ram Kills demon king Ravan

Dussehra – The tale of DASHA HARA

Happy Dussehra
DASHA HARA is a Sanskrit word that means removal of ten bad qualities within you.

Bhagwan Ram defeats Ravan

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).

As we conclude the nine sacred nights of Navratri, we witness the triumph of good over evil in the celebration of Vijayadashami or Dussehra. It symbolizes victory (Vijaya) over these ten wicked qualities. Like the sun that rises every day, reminding us that light will always conquer darkness, let us embrace this natural order and rejoice in the triumph of good over evil.

This moment is one of jubilation, where we honor the power of good, and the world witnesses its victory over the forces of darkness. May this joyous occasion bring success to your life, and may you overcome all evils with the grace of the divine. As we celebrate this occasion, let us wish our loved ones good health, happiness, and prosperity. Let us chant the mantras of
