It is indeed an achievement to greet everyone on Deepawali this year after surviving Corona Pandemic. Corona is the Devil of virus whose after affects lasts for months together. May be some problems will last forever. There is a saying in Sanskrit:
।।ॐ असतो मा सद्गमय। तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय। मृत्योर्मामृतं गमय।।
(असत्य से सत्य की ओर ले चलो। अंधकार से प्रकाश की ओर ले चलो। मृत्यु से अमरता की ओर ले चलो।)
Lead (us) from untruth to truth. Lead us from darkness to light. Lead us from death to immortality.
So what is the truth? Even bigger question is: Is there any truth at all? Everything we know is subject to correction and improvement. Human knowledge has been rewritten so many times that we have lost count.
But there is another problem: who is seeking the truth? The seeker is the vessel in which contents of truth have to arrive. We must know the color of the vessel to know true colors of truth. So the even more important question is who is the seeker? Or Who is me? Or Who is the self which is seeking the truth?
Knowledge of self is a deep enquiry which must be undertaken by the seeker, first. The debate whether self is body or mind, is too old and too settled.
Self is something far too subtle and it has too be beyond memory otherwise we can accept the mind to be self. Is it so?
Discovery of self beyond mere memories is the true discovery for any progress in discovery of truth or whatever we hope to find beyond the metaphysical existence. Without knowledge of self there is no learning, no understanding and no knowledge. It is merely confirmation of what is already in memory. It is another type of hoarding of information without any evolution.
Hence enquiry of self must begin today for the light to dawn on us.
Human health is an issue. The longevity of humans may have increased but they are not healthy. Why people in old age has to use a walker and carry a bag of Urine and a diaper full of excreta? Modern medicine may have progressed in military science especially surgery but it has very little to offer for healthy living.
Pandemic from China
This pandemic from China has exposed the myth that good health care infrastructure is a sign of good health. The fact is that providing food is not enough if it is not healthy and does not boost immunity. But what is right food?
India had lowest rate of fatalities in this Pandemic and it is not due to squalor. It is due to personal hygiene and the herbal food which people of India take which is based on the principles of Sanatan Dharma and Ayurveda.
What are the core principles and how any person can take advantage of these principles has been explained in depth in this book. Sanatan Dharma is not a belief. It is a human science. This book explains this science of life step by step.
Not a religion:
When we talk about Sanatan Dharma there is a tremendous amount of intellectualization. There is this sect against that sect. There is this practice placed against that practice. It is made out as if the rituals define the Dharma. The rituals do not determine the doctrine.
Doctrine is diagnosis of the ailment which has been diagnosed. Now all these sects, practices and rituals are different experiments to deal with the different problems. Follow no ritual. Follow yourself and see what is making you unhealthy and even sick. Stick to the principles and continue with your own religious belief but do take care of your health.It is even better if you are healthy. Read the book and know what you are doing right.
It is free for two more days.
The practices which are prescribed with fancy names like Spirituality, Mindfulness or Inner Engineering are components of Sanatan Dharma. Just like Yoga, whose name mercifully remains same.
The protesting farmers have called for Bharat Bund or lock down India today. Later they scaled it down to 4 hours from 11 AM to 03.00 PM. Apparently it has failed except where State Government has encouraged gangsters to force the shut down of shops. Why they did it? Doing something for the sake of doing?
As per reports a Minister in the Government was asking the shops to shut down, in Jaipur, Rajasthan. In Punjab, Petrol Pumps have been closed till 5.00 PM. Seeing their utter foolishness, it appears the credit of there being BJP Government in the Centre in 2019 goes to these people and they have determined that they will not let go of this government in 2024.
The so called ‘farmer’s agitation’ was called as apolitical. But now every party in opposition is supporting it. Kejriwal’s Party MLA’s are distributing food etc. to the protesters. These very farmers were agitating in Punjab for last two months and operation of the Railway had to be shut down resulting in total halt of business activity and revenue of State Government. Thereafter Chief Minister some how managed to relocate them to Delhi.
BJP got a vote share of 9.63% in the general elections last year. In 1998, BJP got 11.67% vote share and party won all three seats it contested. Party repeated similar performance by getting all three seats it contested in 2004 by polling 10.48% votes. Even in 2009, vote share was 10.06% when Navjot Singh Sidhu won Amritsar as BJP candidate. In other words, BJP was a small party in Punjab.
Akali Dal, ex-ally of BJP and Congress Party are two established parties in Punjab. Kejriwal’s AAP is a new entrant in Punjab which has allied with Khalistani supporters and allegedly financed by them.
The Sikhs are a religious minority in India but they make up just over 57% of the population in the small northern state of Punjab. The BJP was an ally of the Akali Dal in Punjab, but it is keen to come to power on its own in the state. Since last many years BJP is trying to win over those leaders who are angry with the Akali Dal, apart from running an ambitious enrolment drive for the state as a whole.
The seed of Khalistan was sowed by Max Arthur Macaulliff a british civil servant who after retirement converted to sikhism and translated the holy scriptures in an abrahamik manner intolrant to other religions. (The Sikh Religion: Its Gurus, Sacred Writings and Authors in 1909) He even added a prophecy that Sikhs would help British to continue to rule India. See page xix of volume 1 of above book. See:
Chandrayan 2 was launched yesterday and it uses the same technology of gravitational pull that was used by Mars mission spcecraft, Mangalyan. The reported mission is stated by ISRO as under:
July 22, 2019 at 14:43 hrs IST from Satish Dhawan Space Center at Sriharikota on-board GSLV Mk-III. It will be injected into an earth parking 170 x 39120 km orbit. A series of maneuvers will be carried out to raise its orbit and put Chandrayaan-2 on Lunar Transfer Trajectory. On entering Moon’s sphere of influence, on-board thrusters will slow down the spacecraft for Lunar Capture. The Orbit of Chandrayaan-2 around the moon will be circularized to 100×100 km orbit through a series of orbital maneuvers. On the day of landing, the lander will separate from the Orbiter and then perform a series of complex maneuvers comprising of rough braking and fine braking. Imaging of the landing site region prior to landing will be done for finding safe and hazard-free zones. The lander-Vikram will finally land near South Pole of the moon on Sep 7, 2019. Subsequently, Rover will roll out and carry out experiments on Lunar surface for a period of 1 Lunar day which is equal to 14 Earth days. Orbiter will continue its mission for a duration of one year.
To understand the technique of using gravitational pull, this picture uploaded by ISRO explains better:
There is nothing more hypocritical than religious beliefs.
Notre-Dame de Paris, often referred to simply as Notre-Dame, is a medieval Catholic cathedral on the Île de la Cité in the 4th arrondissement of Paris, France. The cathedral is consecrated to the Virgin Mary and considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture dating to 1100 AD onwards.
This is the statue of Saint Denis in Notre Dame cathedral:
Christians say he managed to walk 6 km after being beheaded, bringing his head along.
