Ants revolutionized Agriculture

Ants

Read it! Dharma-driven humans respect everyone, including ants!

Ants prepare fungi for soil! Those friends from non-farming field, read this to realize how so called modern agri science is creating delusions about mandatory usage of chemicals in farming.

On one hand, they sell farmers fungicide to wipe out fungus. On other hand, they give you NPK fertilizers.

In reality, fungus actually helps plants for nitrogen uptake! They are helping hands! They appear only when the plant is weak or environment is not favorable. Correct immunity of plant and see, fungus will disappear. I have seen this in my garden and farm. And ants appears to support plant by farming fungi! 🙂 🙂


Ant Agricultural Revolution Began 30 Million Years Ago in Dry, Desert-like Climate

World’s First Sustainable, Industrial-Scale Agriculture Began When Crops Became Dependent on Their Ant Farmers

Millions of years before humans discovered agriculture, vast farming systems were thriving beneath the surface of the Earth. The subterranean farms, which produced various types of fungi, were cultivated and maintained by colonies of ants, whose descendants continue practicing agriculture today.

New Age Medicine: Ancient sleep prescription

Sleep

Poor guys are finding evidences now that sleep is critical factor for health! We were knowing this from time immemorial! (Lest we pay attention to local sciences and avoid making fun of them!)

Go read Ayurveda!

देहवृत्तौ यथाहारः तथा स्वप्नः सुखो मतः। (चरक सूत्र 21/51)

हमारे ऋषिगणों, आयुर्वेद के प्रणेताओं की दृष्टि बड़ी ही स्पष्ट रही है। वे कहते हैं कि रात्रि में हमें यथाकाल सही-सही नींद का सेवन करना चाहिए। सुश्रुत चिकित्सा सिद्धाँत (24) कहता है कि यथाकाल सेवित निद्रा पौष्टिकता, बल वर्ण, उत्साह, अग्निदीप (भूख सही लगना), चैतन्यता तथा धातुओं में साम्यता पैदा करती है। भावप्रकाश में निद्रा को कफकर तथा वातपित्तहर बताया गया तथा शरीर के लिए पुष्टिकर -सुखदायक कहा गया है। श्रीमद्भगवद्गीता (6/17) में युक्तस्वप्नावबोधस्य अर्थात् यथायोग्य सोने-जागने के क्रम को ही दुःखनाशक योग कहा गया है।

ऋषि कहते है कि देह धारण करने हेतु जिस तरह आहार आवश्यक है, उसी तरह निद्रा भी आरोग्यदायक है। अधिक नींद मोटापे का व जीवनशैली रोगों का एवं सही नींद सामंजस्य पूर्ण स्वास्थ्य का सात्त्विक आहार के माध्यम से सुस्वास्थ्य का निमित्त कारण बनती है।

Many friends believing in Vedanta, often argue with me on my strong view about having purity in food and water. They argue that, what is in this body? We are after all, mind and soul (आत्मा). Food does not matter!

😀

Water flowing in the field takes the shape of the field. Similarly, our mind takes the shape as per our body in growth and sustenance state of life (ब्रह्मचर्य,गृहस्थ). If we don’t nurture it, your view of mind and soul, is nothing but delusion!

Quality Food (Grown by selfless farmer, stored by selfless vendor and cooked by loving family member) is essential, not only for survival but for ultimate goal of life i.e. self-realization.

Side note: We see so many cases of Autism in the west. one of many reasons is, food not nurtured by pure prana and mind. Mind and soul are powerful for all. It is supporting body that reflects their powers.

At the same time, in your वानप्रस्थ, mind is mature. Ideal if it has all ideal Sanskara. That is when you really don’t rely on body much.

For growing children and duty-bound grihasth, food is critical factor for performing वर्णआश्रम duties.

“A 24/7 supply of sensorial stimulation – kids these days are dysfunctional without it. #JunkGadgets #JunkFood #JunkExperiences

This is common parental worry this days.

I sat with couple of parents last night. They had the same pain. But their pain of children learning unusual words, acts was fake. They surrendered to system. They simply are buyers of bread oriented education and expecting magic moral and values imparting by system. That won’t happen O’ parents! Get real and wake up!

For your kids to receive right set of values, you need right set of teachers! Right set of teachers is difficult when teacher is engaged in education for money and is underpaid!

Pity the nation where lascivious, immoral,irritable, cruel, slave of system like teachers are in abundant.

When the cultivator ruins his/her own crops,the cure is not easy. And we have been surrounded by such cultivators for 100+ years. Cure is not easy, it is extremely difficult, nearly impossible in short time since such slaughterer of childhood are now abundant.

Are all your activities morally right, in place for growth and sustenance of society?Bharat needs selfless teachers, in great numbers! Are you ready? If not full time, be part time torch bearer for toddlers and substitute current brigade of slavish teachers. Adopt your neighborhood, alma mater, village, slum – wherever possible! Impart humanities, divinities and realities!

Cultivate strong, self-reliant, confident youth of the future! If you are not contributing to this national cause( Education ), you are nothing better than Kasab and Gilani.

The Development(Growing City) that destroys Development(Growing kids)

Pollution

What developed countries experience, developing countries like India experiences  with manifold intensity. if young children in USA suffer due to air pollution, imagine the situation in India where pollution control is joke enforced on citizens.

We wrote this in past:

I have hypothesis or say interpretation about Sita’s Agni Pariksha followed by transfer to Vashishtha Rishi’s ashram. To me, this was well-planned decision. Sita living in hermitage, in forest, giving birth to Luv and Kush, is perfect plan to me.

Child development in forest, with all sort of mother nature’s immune and intellect boosters.

Similarly, birth of Shri Krishna was in highly urbanized Mathura and grooming of Avtar is not possible in urban place. So? Arrangements were made so that Krishna can be groomed in natural environment, in vicinity of cows. Nanda’s home was perfect for it.

Child Development in City invites future mental disorders


Release: Kids living near major roads at higher risk of developmental delays, NIH study suggests

https://www.nichd.nih.gov/newsroom/news/040919-major-roads-developmental-delay

Young children who live close to a major roadway are twice as likely to score lower on tests of communications skills, compared to those who live farther away from a major roadway, according to an analysis by researchers at the National Institutes of Health and the University of California, Merced. Moreover, children born to women exposed during pregnancy to higher-than-normal levels of traffic-related pollutants—ultra-fine airborne particles and ozone—had a small but significantly higher likelihood of developmental delays during infancy and early childhood. The study appears in Environmental Research.

“Our results suggest that it may be prudent to minimize exposure to air pollution during pregnancy, infancy, and early childhood—all key periods for brain development,” said Pauline Mendola, Ph.D., an investigator in the Division of Intramural Population Health Research at NIH’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the study’s senior author.

Role of mother and milk in our immunity

============================
How a beneficial gut microbe adapted to breast milk
============================
MilkSugar
 
If you recall, couple of days back, I shared that synergy plays vital role in nature. In fact, each organism, except humans, performs स्वधर्म!
 
As a mother of infant, breast-feeding is not mere for your kid!! It is for microbes too!! Infant’s gut microbe colonies are building and they also need your milk!
 
Now, replace human mother with गौ माता! Just connect the dots! Why terrain-specific cow milk. Why freely grazing cows! Why cows must not be curfew-ed!
 
Imagine when modern mothers replace breat-milk by formula milk!
🙁
 
Imagine when we idiots replace raw desi cow milk by processed dairy milk! 🙁
 
GUT microbes never get their vital sugar!! Eternal hunger in a case when breast-feeding is stopped and raw desi cow milk is not started!
 
And you expect them work for you synergestically?
 
========================
 
Breast milk provides vital nutrients not only to infants, but also to beneficial microbes that inhabit the gastrointestinal tract. A study published April 6 in Cell Chemical Biology shows that a bacterial species called Bifidobacterium longum has successfully adapted to the unique niche of the infant gut by producing an enzyme called LnbX, which enables this microbe to grow on a sugar that is abundant only in human milk.
 
“Given the health-promoting effects of bifidobacteria, our findings reveal a possible evolutionary route for the breast milk-driven symbiosis between gut microbes and humans,” says co-senior study author Takane Katayama of Kyoto University.
 
Gut microbes in early life are thought to have long-lasting effects on human health, and studies have shown that diet strongly influences the composition of this population. For example, human milk sugars are known to selectively promote the growth of beneficial gut microbes such as bifidobacteria, which prevent diarrhea and pathogenic infection in infants. One major component of human milk is a sugar called lacto-N-tetraose, which is virtually absent in the milk of other mammals. Bifidobacteria produce enzymes that break down this sugar, strongly suggesting that a symbiotic relationship recently evolved between these microorganisms and humans.
 
While investigating how this symbiotic relationship evolved, Katayama and co-senior study author Shinya Fushinobu of the University of Tokyo previously characterized LnbB and isolated LnbX—enzymes that degrade lacto-N-tetraose in Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium longum, respectively. In the new study, the researchers set out to build on these findings by determining the X-ray crystal structure of the catalytic domain of LnbX. The crystal structure, in combination with mutation and pharmacological experiments, revealed that LnbX has a distinct structure and catalytic mechanism from LnbB and therefore belongs to a novel family of glycoside hydrolase enzymes called GH136.
 

The metabolic burden of sleep loss

003

In Ayurveda, Sleep is called one of the three pillars of great health.

त्रय उपस्तम्भा: आहार: स्वप्नो ब्रह्मचर्यमिति (चरक संहिता सूत्र. 11/35)

अर्थात् शरीर और स्वास्थ्य को स्थिर, सुदृढ़ और उत्तम बनाये रखने के लिए आहार, स्वप्न (निद्रा) और ब्रह्मचर्य – ये तीन उपस्तम्भ हैं। ‘उप’ यानी सहायक और ‘स्तम्भ’ यानी खम्भा। इन तीनों उप स्तम्भों का यथा विधि सेवन करने से ही शरीर और स्वास्थ्य की रक्षा होती है।

THREE PILLARS OF LIFE

Here is the interesting research connecting sleep loss and metabolic burden.

Avoid the metabolic burden of sleep loss. शुभ रात्रि | Everyday!

Sleep well. Sleep enough.

Sleep is the first line of preventive medicine.

Heathcare professionals should prescribe it!

In parallel with the increasing prevalence of obesity and type 2 diabetes, sleep loss has become common in modern societies. An increasing number of epidemiological studies show an association between short sleep duration, sleep disturbances, and circadian desynchronisation of sleep with adverse metabolic traits, in particular obesity and type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, experimental studies point to distinct mechanisms by which insufficient sleep adversely affects metabolic health. Changes in the activity of neuroendocrine systems seem to be major mediators of the detrimental metabolic effects of insufficient sleep, through favouring neurobehavioural outcomes such as increased appetite, enhanced sensitivity to food stimuli, and, ultimately, a surplus in energy intake. The effect of curtailed sleep on physical activity and energy expenditure is less clear, but changes are unlikely to outweigh increases in food intake. Although long-term interventional studies proving a cause and effect association are still scarce, sleep loss seems to be an appealing target for the prevention, and probably treatment, of metabolic disease.

DNA can’t explain all inherited traits

002

This is the reason why I call engineered crops or obsession with gene-detection as pseudo science. Same way, gene driven therapy is also not full proof care.

Genes do not control any life form. Epigenetics do. Within cell, histone protein to far distant butterfly flying in the garden, all play role in our actions and reactions.

DNA can’t explain all inherited traits

Traits passed between generations are not decided only by DNA, but can be brought about by other materials in cells.

Research avenues

The finding demonstrates for the first time that DNA is not solely responsible for how characteristics are inherited.

It paves the way for research into how and when this method of inheritance occurs in nature, and if it is linked to particular traits or health conditions.

It may also inform research into whether changes to the histone proteins that are caused by environmental conditions – such as stress or diet – can influence the function of genes passed on to offspring.

Theory confirmed

The research confirms a long-held expectation among scientists that genes could be controlled across generations by such changes.

However, it remains to be seen how common the process is, researchers say.

Scientists tested the theory by carrying out experiments in a yeast with similar gene control mechanisms to human cells.

They introduced changes to a histone protein, mimicking those that occur naturally, causing it to switch off nearby genes.

The effect was inherited by subsequent generations of yeast cells.

The study, published in Science, was supported by the Wellcome Trust and the EC EpiGeneSys Network.

 

Death Acceptance is a sign of genuine medical science

001

Ayurveda is the only medical science that accepts death as natural event and never strive to avoid it. Such events are called असाध्य (incurable).

Modern medical science?

Pseudo charlatan tricks as if it has magic wand to save you 

जन्म,मृत्यु,जरा,व्याधि are natural and unavoidable. मृत्यु – you can (not all can though) delay by slowing down जरा but it is important to die (Why? Separate discussion). Even Bhagwan dies here. Ayurveda resolves व्याधि and at the most can slows down जरा (Not all can though. why? selarate discussion).

In my limited understanding, genuine Ayurvedacharya knows both Jyotish and Ayurveda very well. And due to this, he will never ever claim all conditions as साध्य. There is category of असाध्य conditions too.

जन्म,मृत्यु,जरा,व्याधि are natural and unavoidable. मृत्यु – you can (not all can though) delay by slowing down जरा but it is important to die Even Avtar dies here. Ayurveda resolves व्याधि and at the most can slows down जरा. And chief purpose of Ayurveda is not to save life but help you live peacefully with billion+ cells and 3-4 times more bacteria and viruses in physical body, revere them and pray them to help us in performing our dharma with minimum possible hassles during this life span so that there are less hurdles in self-realization, which I believe is a purpose of human birth.

Dharma protects, the protectors

धर्मो रक्षति रक्षितः|

There is feedback loop between you and your dharma. Loop has to sustain for protection.

Dharma offers protection. If we choose to live a life guided by the principles of
Dharma, then we are assured of that protection. This understanding is ingrained in Hindu’s
thinking from childhood as one grows up in India.

How convenient it would have been if the phrase contained only the first part: Dharmo
rakshati.? One-way street. But life is not so simple. Reciprocal action is invited by adding rakshithaha in the phrase.’rakshithaha’ implies that the concept itself needs
protection too. This is interesting as it conveys the need to protect the very concept whose protection we are seeking.

Dharma will protect you if you protect it. Now it is an equation. Thus long ago it appears there was this recognition that we cannot simply take it for granted that Dharma will reign supreme always and that there is no danger to it. Therefore a duty is imposed on those who seek such protection from Dharma, and that duty is to take care that this
wonderful governing concept of life is not in any jeopardy.

Protect or get vanished.
