Broken families : Collapsing society
Broken families : Collapsing society

Have you ever thought why media is paid so heavily to spread perversion in society? Be it TV serial or news, there is unlimited sell of affairs, perversion and sex.

Media Perversion Example: Daily bombardment of perversion by crime serials
Media Perversion Example: Daily bombardment of perversion by crime serials

There is this program on Life Ok which telecast sleazy scenes and stories for 24×7. Especially when the home-makers are idle at in middle class homes i.e. afternoon and late evening.

There are cases reported where teens took inspiration from this show and performed brutal murders of family members.

Do you know why all of this?

Breaking India.

How?

Break family institution.

कुलक्षये प्रणश्यन्ति कुलधर्मा: सनातना:।
धर्मे नष्टे कुलं कृत्स्नमधर्मोऽभिभवत्युत ।।१.४०।।

कुल के नाश से सनातन कुलधर्म नष्ट हो जाते हैं, धर्म के नाश हो जाने पर सम्पूर्ण कुल में पाप भी बहुत फैल जाता है |

Development of civilization pays high tribute to virtue of family system कुल-धर्मं. Lack of कुल-धर्मं/Family system promotes अधर्म. Resulting danger to society and civilization is troublesome. Hope, people understand this by keeping their modernism and wantonly living.

Due to proliferation of delusional properties about self-centered living imported from west, Indian family system is passing through worst time ever. Increase in break-ups, divorces, old-age homes, orphanages, need based marriages, misuse of laws show surely that it is not a good situation. When families are destroyed, Nation suffers.

Take care. Save family from collapse.

If you want to do survey, do it. You will find that, majority of us are either incapable of or not interested in, deciphering self by understanding it in essence (तत्त्व ज्ञान). But that does not mean, this majority should remain aloof of spiritual progress.

Hence, we have ritualistic and symbolic configuration, which can help large majority in taking one baby step further in spiritual progress.

Those who understand that Cricket is now major anti-national establishment, agree with center image. Cricket lovers oppose it. Those who understand that Bollywood is anti-national establishment, agree with background image. Bollywood sympathizers disagree.

I wanted to avoid this post. But it is required. If we as society, won’t take steps at family level, no one will save us from becoming slaves again.

You use Itihasik characters names as movie characters. Okay. We had history about such films. Unlike past movies, recent attempt by Mr. Bhanshali is different. How?
You show Ram as drug peddler, womaniser; Hanuman with gun, and in background, there is on and often display of real portrait of Itihasik(ऐतिहासिक) character – this surely reveal malicious intents. Trained neuroscientists will tell you that, more than center stage, it is background that connects you with the concept and story more. So when in background, you see continous focus on real Ram and the center stage is of character ‘Ram’ who is drug mafia, it creates cognitive dissonance that slowly converts into disbelief.

Not everyone of us is born with constitution of research and reading. So, major mass will rely on symbols and archtypes to follow ideal life. These symbols are shared with them since childhood by visual and auditory perceptions. Stories, Bhajans, songs, drama etc.

Now when you derail them and shamelessly replace with modern depictions, mass is under tremendous subconscious cognitive dissonance. The storm is so powerful that they slowly disconnect from the roots. A major loss for society. Loss because, self-realization path for majority is derailed.

Results?

Sachin’s godhood, Tejpal’s sexual assault and release of Ram leela – they are not isolated events. They are connected events; represent us as society as a whole. Shows our tastes and inclinations. Shows our disinterest in protecting values and symbols. Shows zombie and parasite state of society. Unfortunate. Pity.

At least save yourself from these devils. Do not contribute in their profits at your perils.

 

The Cola Brainwash

The infamous Cola Brainwash
The infamous Cola Brainwash

See this is how they sell your useless products. In 1891, Coca Cola sold you toilet cleaner with a fancy label “Brain tonic”. It is our weakness, to become super smart using shortcuts.

For almost 130 years, people drank it without a second thought. And this was the century of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Day by day, generation after generation, it became part of daily diet.

Situation is so worse now that, even if you show evidences, people won’t listen and keep enjoying their high sugar drinks. May be there destiny.

For sane and sensitive,

What you eat affects how you think. Eating a high-fructose diet over the long term alters your brain’s ability to learn and remember information. It makes you stupid day by day.

Choice is yours. Think about and take care.

This is your brain on sugar: UCLA study shows high-fructose diet sabotages learning, memory

Attention, college students cramming between midterms and finals: Binging on soda and sweets for as little as six weeks may make you stupid.
A new UCLA rat study is the first to show how a diet steadily high in fructose slows the brain, hampering memory and learning — and how omega-3 fatty acids can counteract the disruption. The peer-reviewed Journal of Physiology publishes the findings in its May 15 edition.

 “Our findings illustrate that what you eat affects how you think,”

“Our findings illustrate that what you eat affects how you think,” said Fernando Gomez-Pinilla, a professor of neurosurgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and a professor of integrative biology and physiology in the UCLA College of Letters and Science. “Eating a high-fructose diet over the long term alters your brain’s ability to learn and remember information. But adding omega-3 fatty acids to your meals can help minimize the damage.”
Sources of fructose in the Western diet include cane sugar (sucrose) and high-fructose corn syrup, an inexpensive liquid sweetener. The syrup is widely added to processed foods, including soft drinks, condiments, applesauce and baby food.
While earlier research has revealed how fructose harms the body through its role in diabetes, obesity and fatty liver, this study is the first to uncover how the sweetener influences the brain.
Sources of fructose in the Western diet include cane sugar (sucrose) and high-fructose corn syrup, an inexpensive liquid sweetener. The syrup is widely added to processed foods, including soft drinks, condiments, applesauce and baby food. The average American consumes roughly 47 pounds of cane sugar and 35 pounds of high-fructose corn syrup per year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture

Prepare for Sharad : Kaitha fruit

====================
कैथा and शरद
====================

Kaitha - Indian fruit
Kaitha – Indian fruit

Hindi कैथा and Gujarati કોઠું or Limonia acidissima as scientific name. It is native fruit of Bharatiya subcontinent i.e. India, Nepal, Bangaladesh and Pakistan.

Very popular among female folk and children.

The fruit is eaten plain, blended into an assortment of drinks and sweets, or well-preserved as jam. The scooped-out pulp from its fruits is eaten uncooked with or without sugar, or is combined with coconut milk and palm-sugar syrup and drunk as a beverage, or frozen as an ice cream. It is also used in chutneys and for making jam. A drink, Bael-panna made by blending the fruit with water and spices, is drunk during summers.

The ripe fruit is rich in beta-carotene, a precursor of Vitamin A; it also contains significant quantities of the B vitamins thiamine and riboflavin, and small amounts of vitamin C.

Fruits are refrigerant, stomachic, stimulant, astringent, aphrodisiac, diuretic, cardiotonic, tonic to liver and lungs, cures cough, hiccup and good for asthma, consumption, tumours, opthalmia and leucorrhoea.

Why this कैथा वार्ता?
My friend’s farmer father shared local wisdom 3 months back. While travelling to local pilgrimage together, he shared this: “Look at the Kotha tree. Plenty of fruits. Too many. This is indication of dry monsoon. There will be hardly any rain in this region.”

3 months later, we indeed have no rain (52% deficient in my district). He was so right. So do we have plenty of कैथा/ કોઠું. Mother is suggesting to eat them freely so that you can save self from unusual September heat! Eat Kothu chutney!

Mother Nature is so loving. She shares all her त्रिकालज्ञान by plenty of signs. Not only that, she also prepares us for upcoming seasonal catastrophe. So much wisdom if we just spend life with her and learn from her nurturing!
Less rain or too much rain, does not matter. From Today, there is arrival of शरद ऋतू. शरद without monsoon is difficult.

रोगाणाम शारदि माता (Season Sharad is mother of all disease) – Current season (from 14th Sept) is known as season of epidemics. It is season when Mother Nature prefers to balance the population.
End of monsoon, humid & hot – perfect setup for pathogens to expand their rule.

And so it is well-known wish/Blessing for loved ones – जीवेत शरदः शतं – May you live 100 शरद (You may get answer why this season and not any other season is used in blessing for long life). Those who successfully pass through this time without any sickness symptoms, observe Dashera festival to celebrate victory over all possibilities to degenerate their life, against whom they fought and won.

Abundant Kaitha or lemon is a sign that use them profusely in your diet. Take care. (Y)

The Aja (Goat) metaphor

0
अज = बकरी, goat?
अज = बकरी, goat?

अज = बकरी?

1) अज = Goat
2) अज = Ayurvedic Aushadhi


‘Aja’ or ‘अज’ also mean ‘moon’ or ‘Self’. And it also mean goat. 🙂 🙂
Eid al-Adha (Bakri Eid) means festival of sacrifice.
Sacrifice of self = Sacrifice of अज
बकरा नहीं आत्माका sacrifice tha…kya se kya ho gaya 😀


See…it is simple. Vedic Yagna ritual demands अज or goat! You guys are hypocrite! Your religious texts suggest sacrifice of goat and you keep crying about Muslim way of animal sacrifice! Fascists! Dhimmis! RSS agents!


😀. This is the result of half baked knowledge of the texts. This is the result of inability to contemplate on Sanskrit words and realize their right contextual meaning.

अज = अ + जन. अ means ‘No’ and ‘ज’ means ‘ability to sprout/ability to become alive again or make biological progress’.

अज – Inability to bring life back.

Rice seeds kept in sterile environment where sunlight can not reach, becomes अज after 7 years. For different seeds, this period varies.

Branches of tree fall when they become अज and for Yagna, only collected wood is prescribed in Satapath Brahman granth. Chopping tree for Yagna or Antim Sanskar is a crime against nature.

अज is full of Prana but devoid of ability to bring new life. By using अज in sacrifice, we do not kill the natural possibilities of new life.

On mental plane, in front of Agni Devta, let your mind तप्त to the level that no new Vikruti can sprout again. When mind becomes अज, sacrifice it to Agni Devta so that you transcend the limits of mind.


PS: Barring some highly specialized, target oriented, selfless, not so common rituals, we do have procedure of Bali. But that is not common practice!! And all can perform it! So don’t compare them with regular rituals Hindus perform!

In ancient days, cinnamon more valuable than gold. Gold was in abundant supply, while cinnamon was not widely available.

In Ayurvedic terms, cinnamon pacifies Vata and Kapha doshas, but it may aggravate Pitta dosha if taken in excess. It has a sweet, pungent, and bitter rasa or initial taste, it is heating, and has a pungent vipak or aftertaste.

Cinnamon improves digestion and absorption, and promotes elimination. It removes toxins from the body, and improves circulation by strengthening the heart and warming the kidneys. As a blood thinner, cinnamon prevents heart attacks. Additionally, cinnamon may be used in the treatment of respiratory and sinus congestion, bronchitis, colds, and the flu. It is both an expectorant and a decongestant.

Cinnamon May Aid Learning Ability

Study finds spice consumption made mice better learners

https://www.rush.edu/news/cinnamon-may-aid-learning-ability

Cinnamon is a delicious addition to toast, coffee and breakfast rolls. Eating the tasty household spice also might improve learning ability, according to new study results published online in the July issue of the Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology.

The study by neurological scientists at Rush University Medical Center found that feeding cinnamon to laboratory mice determined to have poor learning ability made the mice better learners.

“This would be one of the safest and the easiest approaches to convert poor learners to good learners,” said Kalipada Pahan, PhD, the lead researcher of the study and the Floyd A. Davis Professor of Neurology at Rush.

Some people are born naturally good learners, some become good learners by effort, and some find it hard to learn new tasks even with effort. Little is known about the neurological processes that cause someone to be a poor learner and how to improve performance in poor learners. 

“Understanding brain mechanisms that lead to poor learning is important to developing effective strategies to improve memory and learning ability,” Pahan said.

Just bought new house or planning to buy one? Planning to buy new furniture? Had oil paint walls? Did they come with fire-resistant label? Did they come with almost VOC free label?

If yes, read on.

Furniture, textiles, electronics, and insulation – they are treated with flame retardant chemicals. Your glossy expensive furniture come with Lower IQs, Hyperactivity in Children.

Solution?

• Do not paint your bedroom (Bedroom because you spend most inactive time there. Preferably entire home) with oil paint. Go with simple lime based white-wash
• Children room should not be dump yard of electronic toys
• Wear cotton clothes (at least for children) (if possible colored with natural colors )
• Use cotton white curtains
• Less is beautiful. Minimal furniture with minimum use of flame retardant chemicals

Difficult solutions, right? We are so modern that it is now difficult to live simple life 🙂 Take care (Y) as much you can.

Flame Retardants Linked to Lower IQs, Hyperactivity in Children

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/flame-retardants-linked-lower-iq-hyperactivitiy-children/

Almost a decade after manufacturers stopped using certain chemical flame retardants in furniture foam and carpet padding, many of the compoundsstill lurk in homes. New work to be presented today reaffirms that the chemicals may also still be hurting young children who were exposed before they were born.

Researchers investigating the health impacts of prenatal exposure to flame retardants collected blood samples from 309 pregnant women early in their second trimester. Spikes in the levels of one class of flame retardant, polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) correlated with behavior and cognition difficulties during early childhood.

The researchers tracked children through the first five years of their lives, looking at a battery of tests for IQ and behavior. They found that children of mothers who had high PBDE levels during their second trimester showed cognition deficits when the children were five years old as well as higher rates of hyperactivity at ages two to five. If the mother’s blood had a 10-fold increase in PBDEs, the average five-year-old had about a four-point IQ deficit. “A four-point IQ difference in an individual child may not be perceivable in…ordinary life. However, in a population, if many children are affected, the social and economic impact can be huge due to the shift of IQ distribution and productivity,” says lead author Aimin Chen, an assistant professor of environmental health at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. The findings, based on women and children from Cincinnati, will be presented May 6 at the annual meeting of the Pediatric Academic Societies in Washington, D.C. The unpublished results have been submitted to a peer-reviewed journal, but the paper has not yet been accepted.

Food Security, really?

http://www.istampgallery.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/464-Wheat-Revolution.jpg

Post world-war 2, across the world, yields for basic cereal crops like wheat, rice and maize rose dramatically.

The bookish explanation as it is taught even now is:

“Farmers started using advanced technology for irrigation, got better seeds and started using more fertilizer than they used to, so the yields went up.”

Simple and convincing, right?

It is not so simple. 🙂 Answer requires in-dept note in future but giving you hint and reality here:

Hint : Cold War Era and Food Aid programs for Asia and Africa by USA (Only wheat was provided so no option but to eat wheat 😉 )

Reality : Rice was prime staple food for large section of Asian population. Tribals had their own different grains as staple food. And yet, after 50 years of so called Green Revolution, we have only one grain ruling our food plate i.e. wheat. 🙂

Do we realize the health impact of single grain dominating our food? (Glutten intolerance. Indigestion. Sick GUT. Lack of GUT bacteria. Got it? )

Impact on soil due to mono-culture farming? (Witness impact in Punjab and MP)

Who controls our food? Who designs our diet?

Are we really free? 🙂

Do we really choose our food or our food chooses us?

Every year, food corporations introduce 15–20,000 new food products to the market.

Can you imagine? 20000 new food products!

Green and purple ketchup, mayonnaise from a squeezable bottle, soup you can eat while driving your car. New food products like these aren’t just flights of fancy.

Of each year’s new products, Lord said, only one-third will be considered successful in two years.

“This is called ‘product churn,'” he said. “The industry puts a lot of products out there and waits to see which ones stick.”

And we feel bad or good for Maggi ban 😀 😀. It was actually a right move to ban one brand so that industry can come up with few more improved brands 😀.

And during this sick churning, you and me, the supermarket consumers, become victim of churning.

Through the way we live, work and play, we don’t really choose our food – our food chooses us. And that is sad reality of so called modern life. By TV, by ads, by peer pressure, we are forced to useless food. Processed food. And pay hefty for nearly free-of-cost nature’s gift.

Unless we get rid of GDP obsession, situation will remain same. There will be group of decision maker who will control our food habits and by that control all of us. This is not freedom. Is it?

– Buy from the source (Farmers) by bypassing entire sick food chain discussed above
– Cook/Prepare for self/Family/Friends – that is really an ideal processed food. Processed by love and nurtured by care 🙂
– Live in community of like-minded so you don’t have to follow social dharma and attend parties and gathering where slave-food (processed food) is served often 🙂

New food products lifeblood of industry

http://apps.caes.uga.edu/gafaces/index.cfm?public=viewStory&pk_id=1682

Green and purple ketchup, mayonnaise from a squeezable bottle, soup you can eat while driving your car. New food products like these aren’t just flights of fancy.

“Food product development is critical to the survival and growth of the companies within our vast and vigorously competitive, $800 billion American food industry,” said Aaron Brody. “Probably a quarter of a million different food products are available, with 15,000 to 20,000 or so new items introduced annually into the crowded mix to try to satisfy consumer desires.”

“In the past, and to a degree, even today, to develop new food products, we went to the kitchen or laboratory or pilot plant and whipped up a recipe, which was sent to marketing to sell,” Brody said. “Or we assembled a group of creative people to brainstorm ideas that were sent to the lab. Or we waited for farmers to grow a new crop.”

Today’s food industry leaders have to know the consumers’ wants, create the right packaging and generate a profit, he said.

John Lord, a food product development and marketing researcher from St. Joseph’s University and member of the FOODPI&C program, said the high number of new products announced each year is actually much smaller than it seems.

“There may be 20,000 new UPC codes … each year, but a very, very small number of these are really new to the world,” he said. “Many are just new adaptations of existing products or temporary or seasonal products like Oreos with a different color icing.”

Sun Worship: Preventive Care for Societal Mental Wickedness

Sun Worship
Sun Worship

आदित्यस्य नमस्कारं ये कुर्वन्ति दिने दिने |
जन्मान्तरसहस्रेषु दारिद्रयं नोपजायते ||

The people who bow down to the Sun (perform SUryanamaskArs)everyday, povertydoes not arise intheir lives for thousands of births. (The people who are punctual in their duties like Sun, never become poor.)

Sickness is a state of poverty. Irrespective of sect, religion and spiritual inclination, this is wonder exercise that gives clarion call to all body cells and put them in motion again, everyday.

An energetic way to start a day.

By worshiping and focusing on param mitra’s external roop, we can finetune his reflection inside. Our biological clocks follow Sun’s the rhythm. Due to our habits, we disturb them. Everyday suryanamaskar can correct them.

For fulfilled and content life, it is important to have healthy mental state. Along with many benefits of प्राण ( modern science is not capable to explain it) at sunrise salutation to the Sun, sun-light interacts with brain serotonin systems and possibly influences serotonin-related behaviors.

So if you are nocturnal and hardly interact with rising sun daily (i.e. don’t wake up before sunrise 😉 ), chances are high that you have minor to major mood disorders.

Mental disturbance means disturbed physical activities. Difficulty in performing own duties ==> shortcuts ===> Crimes, suicides.


Research


Here is the study supporting importance of Sun exposure and mental health.

“Lower rates of suicide are associated with more daily sunshine in the prior 14 to 60 days.
Light interacts with brain serotonin systems and possibly influences serotonin-related behaviors. Those behaviors, such as mood and impulsiveness, can play a role in suicide.”

Direct Effect of Sunshine on Suicide FREE

http://archpsyc.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=1901524

Importance  It has been observed that suicidal behavior is influenced by sunshine and follows a seasonal pattern. However, seasons bring about changes in several other meteorological factors and a seasonal rhythm in social behavior may also contribute to fluctuations in suicide rates.

Objective  To investigate the effects of sunshine on suicide incidence that are independent of seasonal variation.

Design, Setting, and Participants  Retrospective analysis of data on all officially confirmed suicides in Austria between January 1, 1970, and May 6, 2010 (n = 69 462). Data on the average duration of sunshine per day (in hours) were calculated from 86 representative meteorological stations. Daily number of suicides and daily duration of sunshine were differentiated to remove variation in sunshine and variation in suicide incidence introduced by season. Thereafter, several models based on Pearson correlation coefficients were calculated.

Main Outcomes and Measures  Correlation of daily number of suicides and daily duration of sunshine after mathematically removing the effects of season.

Results  Sunshine hours and number of suicides on every day from January 1, 1970, to May 6, 2010, were highly correlated (r = 0.4870; P < 10−9). After differencing for the effects of season, a mathematical procedure that removes most of the variance from the data, a positive correlation between number of suicides and hours of daily sunshine remained for the day of suicide and up to 10 days prior to suicide (rmaximum = 0.0370; P < 10−5). There was a negative correlation between the number of suicides and daily hours of sunshine for the 14 to 60 days prior to the suicide event (rminimum = −0.0383; P < 10−5). These effects were found in the entire sample and in violent suicides.

Conclusions and Relevance  Duration of daily sunshine was significantly correlated with suicide frequency independent of season, but effect sizes were low. Our data support the hypothesis that sunshine on the day of suicide and up to 10 days prior to suicide may facilitate suicide. More daily sunshine 14 to 60 days previously is associated with low rates of suicide. Our study also suggests that sunshine during this period may protect against suicide.
