Friends, last week we talked about the Panchamakaras and the tamoguna that originated from them. We have also described the Panchamakaras in old posts. It appears that it’s necessary to read previous post to understand this post fully. Actually, the Panchamakars are the main weapon of the leftist tantric to hunt for Kundalini. These are the five things whose names start with the letter M. These are sex (maithun in Sanskrit or Hindi), meat (maans), alcohol (Madira), fish (matsya) and mudra (typical sustained body posture). Fifth panchmakara, Mudra is actually Kundalini yoga. It’s important to note that Panchmakaras should never be confused with worldly forms of these material things or sentiments. These only become panchmakaras when these are fully accompanied with spiritual sentiment and practices in the guidance of a qualified Guru and are utilized in minimum amount for the maximum spiritual benefits. Not doing so, panchmakaras may turn harmful too. Panchmakaras initially produce duality. Then it can be converted to non duality with various meditation techniques and nondual philosophies like Vedas-puranas or sharirvigyan darshan. Actually, non duality has not its separate existence. It’s only the negation of duality. it’s the duality that has it’s own existence. Therefore, we can only produce duality directly through worldly indulgence. We can’t produce non duality directly but only through negation of duality. In other words, duality is the base thing to be attained first. To what we would apply the negation word ‘non’, if there is no duality. There appears wide spread misunderstanding regarding non duality. We can’t remain nondual while fully ignoring the duality. Both sentiments run together side by side. This post is not advocating any particular thing or method or lifestyle. We are only presenting the scientific truth to the readers.
Panchamakars are considered sinful in the eyes of the world
One of the reasons, which was mentioned in the previous post is that they produce tamoguna. The second reason is that in it violence karma is involved. You get the fruits of karma. But one only gets it according to karma, not according to his choice or thinking. According to classical mythology, most people understand that it will lead to death penalty or will have to face severe torture in terrible hells, because all types of sins or violence are equal. But this does not happen. This is only a spiritual expression, not a physical or practical one. Minor fruits of minor sins continue to be seen, which are ordinarily seen in the common progressive public in any way, such as getting sick, slipping foot, sprains, increase in the chance of an accident, etc. But in most cases, rescue takes place. The power from the Panchamakars makes the man more engrossed in worldly pursuits. Naturally the minor illnesses, physical pains and mental pains that arise from this are as the result of their sins. With them, the sin of the Panchamakaras is destroyed, and the business of the world also continues to progress. Therefore, the maximum use of energy should be done in such a way that one has to commit least sins for it. This is karma management. This is the Yoga.
Nowadays it seems difficult to do Kundalini yoga without Panchamakaras
I was reading about the yoga experience of a young man in a blog. He had become a pure vegetarian for yoga. Once he lives in the wilderness of Amazon as guest to someone he knows. There, he avoids the fish and asks for pulses to be put into a pit made by him in the rice pile in his plate. The laughter of his acquaintance does not take the name of stopping. Embarrassed by this, he becomes a non-veg yogi. It means habits and habitats are according to the country. Eating a balanced diet is very important for a yogi, because yoga requires a lot of energy. Yoga is the second name of balance or balanced life. It highlights the importance of balanced diet in one’s life. We consider the balance of food to be limited only to the balance of nutrients. But in fact, this balance should be extended even to the gunas of the nature or prakriti. A person can get all the necessary nutrients from vegetarianism, but he will get the Tamogun of nature only from the non-vegetarian. One can also use limited alcohol without any harm to health, to obtain the necessary tamoguna. It is known to all and as it has been proved in the previous posts of this blog that for the balance of life, the three gunas of nature should be in balance inside the mind. These gunas complement each other only when in equilibrium, otherwise they may become inhibitors of each other. All of us know that mind is formed by diet. There is also a famous saying that “What is grain, that is the brain”. This shows the importance of having all the three gunas of nature in a balanced amount in the diet. It is said that no worship without eating. Vata, Pitta and Kapha of Ayurveda are also Satoguna, Rajoguna and Tamoguna respectively of nature. Health remains good by balancing them. The word non-violence that Patanjali has inserted in Yama and Niyam of ashtanga yoga means that there should be no violence without a higher purpose. If non-veg such as fish, egg is not taken in the form of mild violence or sin to keep the body strong and healthy, then it will also be violence towards the body. From that, how will the yama and niyam of yoga be applied in Yoga. Violence against the human body is the greatest violence. Patanjali used to think very long, so instead of getting into the mess of vegetarian or non-vegetarian, he added the word non-violence. This is enough for those who understand. Now if according to science, the need of the body is judged, then a man only needs 70-100 grams of meat as doze of one day for two days in a week. It can be harmful for the body if this need isn’t fulfilled or even over fulfilled. Over fulfilling also produce unnecessary tamoguna or darkness. I have seen many yogis, who feel the need after 15 days, many after 1 month, and some after 3 months. Many feel the need for non veg at an interval of six months. Now tell what will be the deficiency of nutrients fulfilled by it. From this, it is clear that the deficiency of tamoguna of man’s mind is fulfilled by it. It also gives him full and refreshing sleep due to its inherent quality of darkness, which makes a good repair of his body and mind, and that makes him healthy. The body states its own need. When it is needed, meditation starts to decrease in yoga, agility is reduced, appetite decreases, digestive system starts messing up, tremors start to occur in the body. In behavior, anger and irritability comes, it becomes difficult to maintain non duality, the mind starts to wander inside the vortex of duality, it becomes like depression, the body starts getting sick, one starts to feel like fear, disinterest in sex. To maintain the advaita sentiment in the right way in the mind, the balance of the three gunas of nature is very important. Further added, where there is non duality, there is kundalini. Like these, many symptoms occur if body requirements remain unfulfilled. In fact, due to lack of diet, some side effects are produced in every part of the body and mind. Many people ignore them and many people are not aware of these. All these bad symptoms disappear immediately after the nutritional supplements are completed. Anyway, fish is considered the best diet, because it has many healthy properties, and also has no side effects. That is why it has been specially included in the Panchamakaras. Papakarma or sin is also very less due to its consumption. Scientific research has also revealed that the fish does not feel pain. It appears as a gift given to it by the nature to escape from the torture of the very same nature. Although all the three gunas of nature are present in all things and expressions, but in a particular thing, a particular guna is more powerful. Take Panchamakars, then there is excess of Rajoguna in sex and fish, Tamogun in meat and liquor, and Satoguna in Mudra or static gesture. In today’s era of pollution and hyper-physicality, the demand for energy of the body has increased a lot. In such a situation, perhaps only the leftist Yogic panchamakaras can guide mankind correctly.
