Why Hanuman as Ideal Role Model for Youth?

0

Teen age is an age of imitation. In this age, mind seeks Role Model to follow and imitate. What is right and wrong is least concerned for teen age. And once the attitude towards life is set, it remains same forever. I see 70+ old with lust in eyes. Reason?

The damaged teen age. More than likely Bollywood perverts as Role Models during teen age.

Although, this is common sense, here is the meta-analysis confirming it

Meta-Analyses of the Relationship Between Conformity to Masculine Norms and Mental Health-Related Outcomes.

Despite theoretical postulations that individuals’ conformity to masculine norms is differentially related to mental health-related outcomes depending on a variety of contexts, there has not been any systematic synthesis of the empirical research on this topic. Therefore, the authors of this study conducted meta-analyses of the relationships between conformity to masculine norms (as measured by the Conformity to Masculine Norms Inventory-94 and other versions of this scale) and mental health-related outcomes using 78 samples and 19,453 participants. Conformity to masculine norms was modestly and unfavorably associated with mental health as well as moderately and unfavorably related to psychological help seeking. The authors also identified several moderation effects. Conformity to masculine norms was more strongly correlated with negative social functioning than with psychological indicators of negative mental health. Conformity to the specific masculine norms of self-reliance, power over women, and playboy were unfavorably, robustly, and consistently related to mental health-related outcomes, whereas conformity to the masculine norm of primacy of work was not significantly related to any mental health-related outcome. These findings highlight the need for researchers to disaggregate the generic construct of conformity to masculine norms and to focus instead on specific dimensions of masculine norms and their differential associations with other outcomes.

Impact Statement
Public Significance Statement—This study synthesized findings from 19,453 participants across 78 samples regarding the relationships between conformity to masculine norms and mental health-related outcomes. In general, individuals who conformed strongly to masculine norms tended to have poorer mental health and less favorable attitudes toward seeking psychological help, although the results differed depending on specific types of masculine norms.

Poor mental health! Tsunami of mental disorders! And we boast self for demographic dividend!
This is just about mental health. Least we talk about physical deterioration.
Who can help youth here?

Is this possible without protecting Virya/वीर्य ?
Can you protect self when you are obsessed with womanizer attitude (Physical and mental)?
In this chaotic time, only Hanuman as Role model and living life with his ideals will help.The subject of brahmacharya is as intrinsic to this conference as oil is to a lamp. It is all too important a subject, and its omission or neglect at a conference of this nature would do grave injustice to a figure like Sri Hanuman. Scripturally and traditionally speaking, Sri Hanuman is always eulogized as an eternal brahmacharin. A brahmacharin is one who controls his senses in order to reach Brahman or the Supreme Being. At a more common level of definition, a brahmacharin is one who controls his passions or sex instincts and transmutes or sublimates these thoughts and energies into resources that are capable of giving him the highest realization of God. In the case of Sri Hanuman, He is not a spiritual aspirant striving to practice brahmacharya. He has already attained mastery in this field. He epitomizes excellence and the ultimate maturity in brahmacharya. It gives us the necessary purity which is the basis of spiritual life. No impure person can be spiritual.
How did Hanuman become a Mahavir? It is with this weapon of Brahmacharya that he acquired unsurpassable strength and velour.
If not him, keeping him in mind, we must strive to become micro version of Hanuman!!

Who is Brahmachari?

1

Since we have corrupted our languages to the core and made them shallow, we often understand words in spiritual domain with shallow meanings.

One such word is Brahmchari!

Who is he/she?

The one who performs sexual abstinence. That is it? That is so narrow definition as for us, we also have Grihastha brahmachari.

Then who is exactly Brahmachari?

As Bollywood depicts? 😀

No!

untitledब्रह्मचारीष्णंश्चरति रोदसी उभे तस्मिन्देवा: संमनसो भवन्ति।
स दाधार पृथिवीं दिवं च स आचार्य तपसा पिपर्ति ॥11-5-1॥
– अथर्ववेद

This particular verse is from Brahmchari Sukta. It describes obligatory duties of Brahmchari. Brahmchari is the one who is ever toiling(साधना) for expanding his consciousness to merge self in God-consciousness.

ब्रह्म means growth, knowledge, value and nectar
चारिन् means to act, conduct, behavior.

ब्रह्मचारी is always engrossed in conducts that promotes growth, knowledge, values and nectar (Bliss)

So what does he do to achieve this?

ब्रह्मचारी उभे रोदसी इष्णन चरति|
अपनी अभिवृद्धिकी इच्छा रखनेवाला पुरुष अपने वातावरणको अनुकूल बनाकर अपना व्यवहार करता है|
ब्रह्मचारी, the one who is steadfast in spiritual progress, works to make his environment propitious and favorable for effortless living. So that he can focus on his goals.

Do we strive to make our surroundings pure? Can we adjust ourselves with environment until we change it for better?

Do not live in friction. Save your senses from unnecessary fiction. Live pure, strive for pure.

Early in fetal life, nutrient deficiencies may result in severe impairments. For example, folate. Or as popularly known as : B Vitamin.

There are numerous benefits but the most critical is during embryonic brain development during pregnancy. Lack of folate during pregnancy means neural tube defects such as spina bifida (a birth defect where there is incomplete closing of the backbone and membranes around the spinal cord. ). This is extreme birth defect but it can lead to many invisible defects like Leg weakness, Orthopedic abnormalities, Bladder and bowel control problems, Abnormal eye movement and different types of allergies.

ACCORDING TO A LOT OF DOCTORS:

Got acne? Take the pill.
Got PMS? Take the pill.
Got irregular cycles? Take the pill.
Don’t want to get pregnant? Take the pill.

All thanks parents’ pre-planning sexual indulgence and avoidance of progeny by modern pills. Folate is a vitamin that may become depleted with the use of birth control pills. Aside from the long list of potential side effects birth control pills can deplete important nutrients. These nutrients include: Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Magnesium and Zinc.

Once the pills become regular bedroom utility, body start denying absorption of nutrients. No matter how sophisticated supplements you take.

Such information is never passed-on to teens and young married couples. And so sex becomes pleasure machine for them. Instant, handy and under control. What a toxic delusion! 🙁🙁 And and top of that Idiot Chetan Bhagat tribe cry for porn freedom rights!! Ghor Kaliyug !! 🙁🙁

Spread the awareness. Save the future of Bharat.

Sanatana dharma talks about Dharma-bound Kama. Pills supported or Condom supported Kama is Vikruti with unforeseen future consequences. Take care.

Oral contraceptives: effect of folate and vitamin B12 metabolism.

Women who use oral contraceptives have impaired folate metabolism as shown by slightly but significantly lower levels of folate in the serum and the erythrocytes and an increased urinary excretion of formiminoglutamic acid.

Effects of progestin-only long-acting contraception on metabolic markers in obese women

http://www.contraceptionjournal.org/article/S0010-7824(12)01048-7/abstract

A first-of-its-kind study by researchers at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC) indicates that healthy, obese, reproductive-age women who use long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) containing the hormone progestin have a slightly increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes when compared to those who use non-hormonal contraception.
While changes in FG and insulin sensitivity were seen in the present study among obese progestin-only contraceptive users, either progestin-only LARC method may be safely used clinically.

Long-term Use of Hormonal Contraceptives Is Associated with an Increased Risk of Brain Tumours

Hormonal contraceptive use and risk of glioma among younger women: a nationwide case–control study

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/bcp.12535/abstract;jsessionid=3B348BECC57B42F30DD406A3A508453E.f03t03

Taking a hormonal contraceptive for at least five years is associated with a possible increase in a young woman’s risk of developing a rare tumour, glioma of the brain. This project focused on women aged 15-49 years and the findings are published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology.
Hormonal contraceptives, including oral contraceptives, contain female sex hormones and are widely used by women all over the world. While only a little is known about the causes of glioma and other brain tumours, there is some evidence that female sex hormones may increase the risk of some cancer types, although there is also evidence that contraceptive use may reduce the risk in certain age groups. “This prompted us to evaluate whether using hormonal contraceptives might influence the risk of gliomas in women of the age range who use them,” says research team leader Dr David Gaist of the Odense University Hospital and University of Southern Denmark.

Beyond Chanakya Cliches

It is now fashionable to quote Chanakya’s wit in board rooms, meeting rooms, debate rooms, to exhibit borrowed information and show off intellect with the help of legacy. Nothing wrong in it as far as it is followed by speaker in his life. If it is not followed, words won’t create impact and the wit-verse becomes mere pastime.

If you say, you don’t just quote Chanakya but also follow his advice in life then you must follow his advices in totality.

Here is one of his advice for seeker, learner and leader.

“The underground water is pure. A wife loyal to her husband is chaste. A king dedicated to religion is always just and merciful; above all a celibate’s life is sacred forever.”

Selective reading, selective learning won’t help. Learn in totality.

Generally I do not discuss this topic but I think it is important to discuss as many columnists lately wrote in support of disgusting personal habit. (Chetan Bhagat ilk).

As per Ayurveda, our body is maintained by Kapha, Pitta and Vayu. Vayu takes care of input/output functions. All our mental abilities depend upon stable Vayu in body. Elimination of waste is also important and it depends upon the force of the vayu.

Balloon takes shape based on air filled. Asthi or bones take shape as per vata’s seat in it. With growing age, this vata deranges and body deforms. No cream can hide aging deformity. You can only slowdown aging by positive life norms. Sadly, more and more Indians are now under vata prakop irrespective of season.

Orgasm demands high contribution of vata. With excess sex(even thinking about it), you loose vata in bones and elsewhere. Further accelerating aging. Youth under the media and cinema is under toxic indulgence state. So like all other addictions, this addiction is contributing in rapid aging of youth.

Food is contaminated with chemicals so more Apana Vayu is wasted in purging them out. Overtime working for it!

Stress is of highest level in modern society so body’s compromised functioning generates more toxins. Again too much work for Apana Vayu.

Celebrate your porn-rights with weak, timid and aging generations.

In all youth gathering I attend or observe from distance, I see waste of demographic dividend. 🙁

Some armchair intellectuals compare Indians with other western countries and defend excessive indulgence by saying that if this is so destructive, why western countries are successful?

These guys forget major role played by weather. Weather here (tropical) consumes faster than the cold weather. So change in habit gives different output here and elsewhere. Apply common sense.

{Vayu devta rides on deer. Those who have vayu in control, can control its deer-like swiftness and timidness.}

Apana And Brahmcharya

अपान and ब्रह्मचर्य

Apana and Brahmcharya
Apana and Brahmcharya

Excretion of waste is very important in any system. Our प्राण, named अपान, takes care of our Body’s material needs and at the same time maintains all outward forces i.e. excretions. It works selflessly, tirelessly 24×7 for your Body’s sustenance, dividing tasks among excretion of मल(Stool), मूत्र(Urine) ,शुक्र(Sperm/Ovum), गर्भ(Fetus) और आर्तव(Menstrual waste).

During delivery of a child, अपान gives total focus on most critical task on hand i.e. contraction of Uterus, movement of pelvic, vaginal opening etc. Due to this over-focus on one task, rest of the tasks find little attention from अपान and hence there is a chance of hampered functioning of Excretion of stool and urine. And this is evident as it is observed by irregular bowel movements during Postpartum period.

Following pregnancy and childbirth, some women experience the following symptoms:
• Bowel urgency: Strong urges to defecate, with a feeling of an immediate need to get to a toilet.
• Passive fecal incontinence: Stool leaks out without one knowing.
• Urge fecal incontinence: Awareness of urge to defecate, but stool leaks out before one is safely on a toilet.
• Post-defecation leakage: Stool leaks out after a bowel movement. This is the rarest of all fecal incontinence symptoms.

Modern doctors prescribe activated charcoal to balance imbalanced अपान (Read more here on WebMD link http://goo.gl/tD1wF). In our village, we give Cowdung ashes prepared by Agnihotra. (Manusmriti is not lunatic when it considers Cowdung Ashes as most sacred and asking to keep it away from stool and urine infections.) Read more about अपान and Cow dung connection here:https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=219758421482407

Above normal scenario is mentioned to explain importance of ब्रह्मचर्य. If ब्रह्मचर्य is not followed, and sex is performed without any control, अपान will work tirelessly for your mindless lust and so other functions are severely impacted. When you are student, you cannot focus on learning when your stool and urine are not in harmony. Irregular stool and urine means indigestion. Indigestion means malnutrition. With mal-nourished brain, student cannot reach their highest possible realization state. Indigestion also mean toxicity. Toxicity – > Rapid ageing. I see many in 20s looking elder than me. Needless to mention reason.

This is just one aspect why ब्रह्मचर्य is important. There are other aspects too like excessive neural activities, reduction of शुक्र ओजस (Not sperm!), mental chaos etc.

ब्रह्मचर्येण तपसा राजा राष्ट्रं विरक्षति | आचार्यो ब्रह्मचर्येण ब्रह्मचारिणमिच्छ्ते ॥ (अथर्व० ११-५-१७)

अर्थात ब्रह्मचर्य के तप से राजा राष्ट्र की रक्षा करने में समर्थ होता है। ब्रह्मचर्य के द्वारा ही आचार्य शिष्यों के शिक्षण की योग्यता को अपने भीतर सम्पादित करता है।

Winning battle against senses is root cause of successful leader.राज्य का मूल इन्द्रियजय है ।

Leader and Teacher – They are what they are (Mediocre or Vibrant of varied degree) due to one essential trait i.e. ब्रह्मचर्येण.
