The-Damage-Meat-Is-Doing-To-Our-Planet

Dear beef eaters (The ones who started eating beef for the sake of taste, as status, as fashion and not traditional eaters who eat by compulsion – and all of us who use one or another product made by cow slaughter),

Thank you for helping mother earth. Industrial ranching has destroyed much of Amazon rainforest.

About half of the world’s tropical forests have been cleared.
An estimated 18 million acres (7.3 million hectares) of forest — roughly the size of Panama — are lost each year, according to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Good right?

Keep eating obsessively. Yes, at all filthy chains like Mc, KFC and all.

Enjoy. Oh yes, don’t forget to teach your kids a message i.e. ‘Save trees’.

And yes, never complain about flood, earthquake, cyclone and all climcate change impacts. We deserve them, don’t we? (This includes all! As, one or another way, we all, veg or non-veg consume products made from animals).

“The global cattle industry, then, is causing extensive ecological damage. Industrial fields of grain are covering an increasing share of the planet to feed these cattle. Antibiotics and hormones are seeping into local environments and through food chains. Manure is polluting local waterways, and methane from the herds of bloated cattle in feedlots is polluting the upper atmosphere.”

Flower’s mission

Nowadays, I frequently wake up early; just to talk with her, to capture her smiling face so that I can revere her beauty throughout the day.

It was fascinating when I saw her first time. I was flabbergasted by her elegance, beauty and everlasting smile. Her gracefulness inspired me to start waking up early and wait so that I get chance to talk with her.

We started talking. Even if we talk for a minute, it becomes important talk. In a week or so, our conversations taught me ‘Living Life with purpose’, ‘Sensitivity and Sincerity’, ‘beauty and the beast’, ‘selfless services’, ‘lustfree love’ and so on. Life feels void and totality both at the same time when we were together.

But after couple of days or so, when I met her, I felt sense of urgency in life. I didn’t want to miss her. I felt like making each moment year long because she has left few moments on this earth before she die and I want to make each moment memorable by submerging in her nature.

Flower in the garden lived for a week and one fine morning, with easterly wind, she scattered herself into petals, flew in wind direction. Her fellow friends in the garden and I still could sense her presence in terms of her fragrance in the garden. She lived her life and completed her mission – I could understand joy of being.

Indian Intellectuals and Agriculture

Indian intellectuals often cite artificial famines created by Britishers but blissfully promote Green revolution as they feel that world hunger is really an issue 😀.

In locally managed decentralized communities, where agriculture depends upon animals (in India, cows), hunger was never an issue. Like artificial famines, world hunger is propaganda or marketing pitch , essentially non-issue when managed locally.

Post-world war -2 , it was powerful propaganda to sell war raw material as fertilizers (npk). Sadly, including India, world accepted the propaganda 🙁

What world hunger? Is anyone worried about consumerist waste, which is more than 50% of produce?

Why do we surrender to market forces and take most important life decisions based on popular notions?
 
In our culture, marriage was considered as most sacred event of life. The crucial Sanskar out of set of 16.
 
Oh, you don’t wish to be regressive? lol 😀
 
We all have our own microbiome cloud that we’re schlepping around and spewing out.
 
We are bombarded by thousands of diverse species and chemicals.
 
In hotel rooms, 1000s of past guests left their biological and pranic imprints. They affect. They mingle with your bodies.
 
At least, trust Stanford research 🙂

Indian Tradition of Encyclopedia : First known knowledge compilation of the world

0

074_12_2_19

What has been deliberately suppressed by the Western Scholars rooted in the Eurocentric Anti-Hindu tradition is that the Keladi King Basava Bhupala produced the first ever Encyclopedia of the World in any language, Sivatattva Ratnakara in Sanskrit in 1699—29 years before the first Encyclopedia in English by Ephraim Chambers in 1728 and 52 years before the first Encyclopedia in the French Language by Denis Diderot in 1751.

The Sansrkirt Encyclopedia of Basava Bhupala published in 1699 was in no way less detailed or less verstile than the encyclopedia of Ephraim Chambers in English published in 1728 (London) or Encyclopédie, ou dictionnaire raisonné des sciences, des arts et des métiers of Denis Diderot in French published in 1751 (Paris).

==========

Here is something about water from this encyclopedia.

This encyclopedia narrates the following facts:

[1] Formation of clouds,
[2] direction of rainfall, and its Characteristics Effect of air on clouds and rainfall
[3] Rain forecast Ground Water,
[4] Correlation between the plants and water bodies Types of water and its quality Collection and preservation of potable water

Formation of clouds according to the author the formation of cloud takes place due to the union of water particles, fog, air, and fire (heat produced due to friction or difference in temperature) and pours down to ground in the form of rain, with the air pressure, they pour water about six months with the intension to do welfare to all the beings on earth. It is almost in the same manner the rainfall of a Water Year, is accounted as Monsoon (June to November) and Non Monsoon (December to May), of six months each. If the rain fall happens on Deepavali, Tuesday or on Sunday it will not be good. The forecasting of rain should be calculated for a period of 15 days only.Clouds formed in the night will rain in the day time and vice versa. Clouds formed in the East will bring rain to West, and the West to the East. There are 9 types of clouds. Viz., Avarta, Samvarta, Pushkara, Drona, Kalika, Kaala, Neela, Vaaruna and Vaibhava (Verse No.93 to 97).

Ground Water Resources

Soils that are having different colours like brown, white, sand, quartz, contain water inside. It gives the clue which the author knows about the absorption and retention capacity of water by such type of soils. He gives many examples to confirm his view. If the colour of the soil turns from white to yellow, at a depth of three and half feet at the Western side and if there is a termite, there will be water at a depth of about 12 1/2 ft. The Banyan tree having more twists and termite towards its Northen side,about 18 feet of water will be available in that place.

Along with 9 types of classification mentioned above, the author especially mentions the natural mineral water called Narikelajala (tender coconut). By drinking this water, the person gets the required mineral content like potassium, to the body instantaneously. The earth having the quartz and copper contents, the taste of water will be bitter, brown or white or blue colour which leads to hardness of water.

The pure quality of water mentioned above should be collected in vessels of copper, well washed three times before use. King should drink this water by using Gold vessels only. The common people can collect the water and use it from the earthen and copper vessels. The mouth of the container should be closed with white muslin cloth. Water should be collected before the sunrise and it should be filtered before storing.

In modern times the water quality is classified by its parameter contents like Ph, Electrical content, Mineral Contents, and Bacterial analysis etc., based on its utilities in Agriculture, Industries, etc.,
whereas in the ancient times, it was classified according to the source of origin.

This work contains nine chapters called ‘kallOla’ and each of these contains many subdivisions aptly named as ‘taranga’s. In all, there are 108 tarangas in this work. The number of shlokas in the volume is 35000. This is a veritable source book of traditional and region specific knowledge. It deals with all fields of knowledge prevalent during his times such as philosophy, economy, royal administration, warfare, agriculture, history, geography, astrology, astronomy, erotics, sculpture, drama, construction of gardens, divination of water and hydrology, musicology, dance etc in detail. It also contains, possibly by way of introduction a detailed history of the Keladi dynasty. The whole work is written in the form of a dialogue. Somashekhara, a son of the king asks questions and the answers are provided by the king. This conversational mode awakens and perpetuates the interest and intellectual curiosity of the readers.

Charak Samhita on Animal Sacrifice

===============================
Animal Sacrifice – More myths, less facts
===============================

073_12_2_19

As per Nighantu, Yajna has 15 meanings.

यज्ञ:| वेन: | अध्वर: | मेघ: | विदथ: | नार्य: | सवनम् | होत्रा | इष्टि: | देवताता| मख: | विष्णु: | इन्दु: | प्रजापति: | धर्म इति यज्ञस्य |

In Sanskrit, all meaning-bundles like above, carry one thing in common i.e. Theme. They all represent similar theme in different situation, on different planes (आधिदैविक, आधि-भौतिक, आध्यात्मिक).

This post is about Animal sacrifice so we will consider word most nearest to meaning ‘Sacrifice’ and bypass other meanings.

इष्टि: – Sacrifice to fulfill others’ wish, fruits. पश्व इष्टि – wish for group’s, troop’s, community’s welfare and act upon fulfilling their wish. i.e Selfless work for society without society’s knowing about it.

वस्य इष्टि – seeking or desire for the better i.e.for welfare. When we understand this word on भौतिक plane, it means to engage self in such activities which can bear good living to mass. Sacrifice your wealth, your things for others. For physical and mental health of mass (Family, Neighborhood, Village, Nation), our seer-scientists (ऋषि) gave us some rituals called यज्ञ.

In यज्ञ, we sacrifice certain items whose resultant fire is potent enough to provide mental and physical health to mass within short time. Our topic is about Animal-sacrifice so we will not go in details and benefits of this ritual.

When the ritual is about physical and mental health of mass, it must employ such elements for sacrifice to sacred fire which can bring positive impact. चरक is indisputable authority in health science. Read what he says:

आदिकाले खलु यज्ञेषु पशवः समालभनीया बभूवुर्नालम्भाय प्रक्रियन्ते स्म । ततो दक्षयज्ञं प्रत्यवरकालं मनोः पुत्राणां नरिष्यन्नाभागेक्ष्वाकुनृगशर्यात्यादीनां क्रतुषु पशूनामेवाभ्यनुज्ञानात् पशवः प्रोक्षणमवापुः अतश्च प्रत्यवरकालं पृषध्रेण दीर्घसत्रेण यजता पशूनामलाभाद्गवामालम्भः प्रवर्तितः तं दृष्ट्वा प्रव्यथिता भूतगणाः तेषां चोपयोगादुपाकृतानां गवां गौरवादौष्ण्यादसात्म्यत्वादशस्तोपयोगाच्चोपहताग्नीनामुपहतमनसां चातीसारः पूर्वमुत्पन्नः पृषध्रयज्ञे| (चरक -चिकित्सास्थान -एकोनविंशोऽध्यायः-४)

Charak says, originally Animals were brought to place of sacrifice to receive best benefits (Their presence was solicited as they were part of local universe/environ) and not sacrifice them in the ritual. Later, people started ignoring their (Animals) presence and its impact on ritual fruits, and started killing cows in name of sacrifice. Due to these killings, other animals in surroundings go haywire. Panic all over. As a result, अतिसार type indigestion illness spread in society.

 

Activists’ agony

0

072_12_2_19

This is very common agony among activists.

“How do I change other people’s behaviors? I know what they should be doing, but they are not doing it!”

“Is behavior really what you want to change? Don’t you want to make them understand first, their role in critical change their motherland seeks? Change their value systems, and their narrow self-centered beliefs, no? Their mindsets, no?

If you change their mindsets, people will behave differently and this may well lead to behaviors you had not expected but that could be even better than what you were hoping for…

Change their mindsets. Pinch hard to reach commoners heart, the linchpin way.”

*Linchpin : A pin passed through the end of an axle to keep a wheel in position, to keep Dharma wheel of Bharat in position.

 Linchpin way is the way to walk by keeping all interests of subjects in focus. No self-centered arrogance. No selfish motive. Work for the sake Societal sustenance.
What most activists do is: they try to belittle other activists, commoners to prove their points in debates. Hopeless and futile.

Dharma based education: Solution for gender equality

Those who don’t spare single chance to spit venom against culture of this land, under media influence, must read the Ramayana first.

The vices we see in society and label it as typical Indian society, is not because of foundation of dharma-based education! It is damn modern education!

Show me one single individual, passed through तपोवन शिक्षण process and having biased mindset about women!

Read this single gem from Ramayana and get rid of false notion about your own roots!

It is not just a movie Bahubali where Rajamata was shown ruling the state! It was alive in all families where Ramayana was recited! Females were always respected as ruler of the home!

आत्मा हि दारास्सर्वेषां दारसङ्ग्रहवर्तिनाम्।
आत्मेयमिति रामस्य पालयिष्यति मेदिनीम्।।2.37.24।।

This shloka told by the great Vasishtha maharshi Himself, is a priceless gem. “In Indian culture, there is no difference between a husband and wife. Hence, may Seeta rule this kingdom in place of Raama, who is leaving for the forests”.

Cows can calm down inflamed body and heal

Whenever I suggest my urban friends suffering from Asthama, allergies and immune dysfunctions to visit Gau shala regularly, they either ignore or laugh on me.
 
How can cow solve allergies? 🙂
 
Read this research to realize it. Esp when you have child below age 10, you must visit Gau shala regularly if living with cows is not possible!!
 
————————–
 
Improved hygiene has largely eliminated infectious diseases from everyday life. There is, however, a downside to this progress: the number of allergies is growing steadily. If the immune system is not kept busy by bacteria, viruses and worms, it sometimes overreacts to harmless things like pollen.
 
Being born and raised in a farm provides a long-lasting protection for allergies. The microbial environment provided by farm animals is crucial to induce this protective effect, although underlying immune mechanisms remain elusive.
 
The farming environment provides a strong, allergy protective IL-22 stimulus and generates activated CD4+ T cells. Exposure to the farm environment early in their life may also provide a better protection for contact skin allergy. Whether a viral trigger might decisively influence protection for allergies remains to be determined.

Education Vision Series – 1 : Infrastructure for Tapas

In this series, we will talk about ideal and achievable aspects of Education, that are missing in present education.

069_12_2_19

I talked about infrastructure, I meant the luxury that parents and kid seek from school once they pay 1 lakh per year.

सुखार्थी त्यजते विद्यां विद्यार्थी त्यजते सुखम् ।
सुखार्थिन: कुतो विद्या कुतो विद्यार्थिन: सुखम् ॥

जो व्यक्ति सुख के पिछे भागता है उसे ज्ञान नही मिलेगा ।
तथा जिसे ज्ञान प्राप्त करना है वह व्यक्ति सुख का त्याग करता है ।
सुख के पिछे भागनेवाले को विद्या कैसे प्राप्त होगी ? तथा जिसको विद्या प्राप्त करनी है उसे सुख कैसे मिलेगा?

तपोवन = विद्यासे तप्त होने, वन आवश्यक है
