When you switch ON fan, you get electricity in the form of fan wind.
When you switch ON light, you get electricity in the form of light.

You switch ON your present need of electricity and you get it.

Invoking Devta before chanting mantra is a communication medium that connects the source to the Sadhak.

Mental switches. If you say you don’t need all rituals for spiritual progress, you certainly are under the ignorance cloud 🙂. Instead rejecting rituals, try to follow them, experience them and then decide, what suits your proclivity and what does not suit.

Btw, fire is the fastest medium to get connected with devta. Do homa regularly.

STAR network is now STAR pariwar. Your family is already digested by this monster! Your values and culture, gone! Beware and save as many you can from your family and friends. Ask them to boycott TV the passive entertainment monster. Spend more time with nature. Be active in local civic duties. Be vigilant citizen.

We are at war-front. Great war against perception-management.

The TV came on its own as an instrument of perception-management during past many war events. Instruments such as printed pamphlets, books, radio broadcasts, the telephone and the fax, the E-mail and the Internet are good for the hard aspects of psywar for alienating the people from their state and for discrediting the state in the eyes of its people and the world, but have only limited use for the soft aspect of projecting the power or group behind the psywar in an attractive light and creating a desire to emulate its culture, ways of life etc. It is here that the value of the TV as a medium comes. Through a sophisticated production and projection of programmes, one can create in the minds of the targeted audience, particularly the urban-based elite and youth, an uncritical admiration of the Western societies, soften their prejudices towards the West and evoke a desire to imitate them. Sections of the targeted audience lose faith in their own society and culture.
Read last line with more emphasis ==> “Sections of the targeted audience lose faith in their own society and culture.” ==> This is time to hit hard on people’s psyche. Once they lose faith in their own society and culture, it is easy to mold them as controlled slaves. This is where TV plays monster role.

Do you know why more and more urban youth now castigate their own culture, calling their tradition savage and barbaric?

Read next paragraph carefully.

Writing in the “Washington Quarterly” of summer 1995, Gerald Segal, Senior Fellow, the International Institute for Strategic Studies, London, said: “It is only when Hong Kong-based consortia began satellite broadcasting of foreign and Chinese soap operas and international sports that the satellite broadcasts were watched by many millions of people on a regular basis. The fact that the BBC World Service TV was carried on the commercial satellite gave it greater penetration of the market, but persistent anecdotal evidence is clear that the viewers (in Asia) were picking up Western values mainly from the entertainment and only in passing from “talking heads” (talk shows) discussing human rights. It was “Baywatch”, “Dallas”, “Beavis and Butt-Head” or “Kung-Fu” episodes that were watched by most people and precisely because they were so much more attractive than more cerebral television, such programmes were more effective in undermining state retention of authority and control over values.”

He further said: “When Rupert Murdoch, well-known for his outspoken criticism of Asian and especially communist authoritarians, dropped BBCWSTV from his Hong Kong-based STAR TV because China warned that its presence put at risk the entire venture, many saw the move as an uncharacteristic pre-emptive kowtow to communists. But, by removing the overtly political message and continuing to provide soap operas about conspicuous consumption and loose morals, STAR was actually beginning to do far more damage to the authority of the Chinese Communist Party.”

Not all addictions are chemical. But surely, it is all about mental. Any pattern of behavior that leads to a pleasure, will be repeated by human minds. Positive reinforcement. This is technical addiction. Opium and TV act same as addictive agent.

When you watch TV or any passive entertainment medium, brain activity switches from the left brain to the right hemisphere. In fact, as per research, right brain is twice as active as the left. I call this a neurological anomaly.

The crossover of thoughts from left to right brain, releases endorphins, a neurochemical occurring naturally in the brain and having analgesic properties. i.e. Capable of relieving pain.

11136718_401118426679738_6971567030182555780_n 11146236_401118493346398_5113086435427630449_n

So every time you watch Television, or kids watch it, or play video game or surf internet videos, flood of endorphins releases from the neural gates. Endorphins are same chemical that drug addicts consume for artificial pleasure.

All activities that releases endorphins are habit-forming i.e. prone for addiction.

This the reason why Opium addict and TV addict or Smoking addict or alcohol cannot break the habit easily.

So if you really want to develop addiction, daru, cigar or TV are not good habits. They accelerates your right brain chaos and left methodical brain becomes useless. This leads to vicious cycle of lethargy, procrastination, withdrawal symptoms.

Find out activity that uses both right and left brain. There should be balance of chemical communication between two parts of the brain. TV fails this criteria. Cinema too. Video games too. Epic failures.
So what to do?

Play. Go, play with children. Sports. Go play with friends. Any outdoor sport that demands rules following, methods to execute, timely decision, input processing and gut feeling (Both left and right brain usage), 30 minutes a day, is worth. Try it. My fav is kho-kho. Perfect game where one can use both left and right brain together.

And make sure while you are running, cycling, swimming or doing any physical activity in silo, you do not succumb to pleasure. Addiction of anything is not worth. Even if it is physical exercise. 🙂 I know they are better than watching TV which shutdowns all other areas of the brain but still…addiction is addiction 🙂 misuse of brain 😉 (Y)

The Mental Endurance : Can your mind run marathon?

Can your mind run marathon?
=====================

How often your mind pursue marathon?
Or it gets tired in 100m race?
Don’t tell me that it is worst that your mind can’t even run 10 m.

Attention span is the amount of time that a person can concentrate on a task without becoming distracted. Most educators and psychologists agree that the ability to focus one’s attention on a task is crucial for the achievement of one’s goals.

Whatever the mind thinks of, the organs of action strive to materialise: hence, again, mind is action.

A short attention span is a much greater problem than just not being able to concentrate on something. The issue needs far more serious thought than it is given today. Since mind(minding) is a action, less time spent on it will result in ineffective actions by organs of actions and ultimately inefficient working, lethargy and FAILURE.

Read more about mind and its attention span. Train it to run Marathon!

How to train mind to run marathon?

I could think of three physical/mental exercise to train mind.

Uninterrupted Sports(Hockey,Footbal,Table Tennis like sports which requires non-stop attention. Not like Golf and Cricket where you rest for most of game time) can help mind to run marathon.

Easy but hard to follow : Early morning meditation in nature.

Uninterrupted reading (Reading is endangered hobby.

Placebo power: Depressed people respond to fake drugs get the most help from real ones

Different levels of brain response to sham treatment could predict resilience in the face of depression, help lead to new treatments

When it comes to treating depression, how well a person responds to a fake medicine may determine how well they’ll respond to a real one, new research finds.

Those who can muster their brain’s own chemical forces against depression, it appears, have a head start in overcoming its symptoms with help from a medication. But those whose brain chemistry doesn’t react as much to a fake medicine, or placebo, struggle even after getting an active drug.


We are not mere physical body. There are layers. One of them is मनोमय कोष. Mind. Cure efficacy highly depends upon patient’s strong will to live life fully (जिजीविषा) and doctor’s pious heart to see patient healthy asap.


Association Between Placebo-Activated Neural Systems and Antidepressant ResponsesNeurochemistry of Placebo Effects in Major Depression

http://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapsychiatry/article-abstract/2443355

Main Outcomes and Measures  Changes in depressive symptoms in response to active placebo and antidepressant. Baseline and activation measures of µ-opioid receptor binding.

Results  Higher baseline µ-opioid receptor binding in the nucleus accumbens was associated with better response to antidepressant treatment (r = 0.48; P = .02). Reductions in depressive symptoms after 1 week of active placebo treatment, compared with the inactive, were associated with increased placebo-induced µ-opioid neurotransmission in a network of regions implicated in emotion, stress regulation, and the pathophysiology of MDD, namely, the subgenual anterior cingulate cortex, nucleus accumbens, midline thalamus, and amygdala (nucleus accumbens: r = 0.6; P < .001). Placebo-induced endogenous opioid release in these regions was associated with better antidepressant treatment response, predicting 43% of the variance in symptom improvement at the end of the antidepressant trial.

Conclusions and Relevance  These data demonstrate that placebo-induced activation of the µ-opioid system is implicated in the formation of placebo antidepressant effects in patients with MDD and also participate in antidepressant responses, conferring illness resiliency, during open administration.

Moon represents universal mind (and Sun universal eye). As soon as the child is born from the womb, it is the moon that makes the child breathe as per moon’s position in janma-nakshtra. As long as we are alive, it is moon governed chandra nadi that keeps the life’s time cycle in motion in Muladhara chakra.

Just as the moon keeps the time-cycle of our universe in motion, it is the moon that keeps time-cycle of the human body in motion.
