Friends, in the previous post I was talking about bathing yoga means the Kundalini benefits of cold water bath and Ganga bath. Cold water bath is a complete yoga in itself. In this, Moola Bandha, Jalandhara Bandha and Uddiyana Bandha, the three main bandhas of yoga, are engaged together. However, nowadays the pollution in the Ganges has also increased a lot, and people did not have enough yogic power to withstand the cold water much. I had a middle-aged relative who went with his family to take a bath in the Ganges, and took a long holy dip in the Ganges with the names of each of his relatives. On his return home, he developed a lung infection, which cost him his life. There may have been other reasons too. Nothing can be said for sure without scientific investigation, but it is necessary to say that the water in which so many people are bathing together, and in which unburned or half-burnt dead bodies are thrown, along with the waste water of human settlements and industries, if ingested, it may contain germs that cause infection. Earlier it was not like this or it used to be less, and along with yoga power etc., the immunity of the people was strengthened.
I was also talking about the test of awakening. I’m going to go into some philosophical depth in this paragraph. If readers find it boring they can go ahead if they want. The test of awakening will have the advantage that the awakened person can be made entitled to as many amenities as possible. After awakening, even when the rich facilities will not be able to fascinate him, then only he will recognize the real value of awakening. How will he come to know the importance of awakening by retiring from the world? For him, the importance of those worldly pleasures will remain, whose longing and contemplation he will keep in his mind. A man will understand the importance of sugar only if he eats sweets immediately after eating sugar and he will not feel sweetness in it. If he does not eat sweets immediately after eating sugar, then he will continue to sing praises of sweets, and will consider sugar to be useless. That’s why I believe that immediately after awakening, there should be a flood of worldly comforts in the life of a man, so that he can feel their futility from the heart and then can make other people feel through discourses etc. That is why in the old times, the kings used to return to their kingdom after attaining enlightenment in the forest, and used to spend their future life happily with all the amenities as before, they did not stay hidden in the forest. Perhaps by realizing this truth from the heart, man reaches the pinnacle of self-development, not just by listening. Probably this was also the philosophy of Osho Maharaj. I too, like him, at times run completely contrary to the orthodox beliefs made up, now whether someone calls me a revolutionary or a Satyagrahi. The more appropriate term seems to be ‘free thinker’, because free thought is not imposed on anyone nor is crowd gathered for it, people choose themselves when they like it. It is democratic and peaceful, just the opposite of revolution. Osho Maharaj has explained this difference very well, on which he also has a book. Of course, one who has ever eaten confectionery before, then after eating sugar, by remembering the taste of confectionery, he can guess that the sweetness of sugar is more than confectionery, but the full knowledge of the dullness of confectionery will be known by eating it after eating sugar. Similarly, after awakening, a person can imagine that awakening is greater than all material pleasures, but the direct experience of the dullness of material pleasures will be by drowning himself in the comforts immediately after awakening. Just as if there it is impossible to get sugar again, then a person can eat sweets and remember sugar’s sweetness, and there is no other option, similarly a man can take help of worldly enjoyments to remember his awakening, and there is no other option. So where did this sannyas come from like a flower in the sky? I think sannyas is for one who has become settled in paravairagya means super detachment, that is, after awakening, having enjoyed all the comforts to the fullest, has experienced their dullness, and has become completely detached from them. He has not even the desire for awakening remaining, because like the comforts, awakening is also worldly, and both keep reminding each other. But a lot of caution is needed here, because having even a little sense of importance towards the world can make him a spiritually corrupt person, meaning he can simultaneously be deprived of both worldly and transcendental benefits. Therefore, the best and safest method is Karma Yoga of the householder’s ashram, in which there is no danger in any condition. By taking sannyas in simple dispassion immediately after awakening, he can operate from the old memories of pleasures, but it does not work like direct pleasures, and the yogi’s intellect for pleasures remains.
Far from the comforts, it is said here by many that the man, especially the awakened person, does not need food, only thin air is enough for him. How will this go? The physical truth has to be understood. Actually obesity is not caused by overeating, but by unbalanced diet. All the essential elements are needed in proper quantity for the proper functioning of the body’s metabolism. Due to any deficiency, the metabolism gets disturbed, due to which the food in the body is not able to burn properly, and accumulates and produces obesity. The body is the hearth. The faster it burns, the brighter the life. For many people, Hinduism today means some outward show. It has been understood to be limited to a special and almost virtually unscientific (because the science behind it is not understood) way of eating and living. For some people only those are Hindus who do not use meat and liquor, while for some only those are Hindus who keep distance from sexual intercourse. For some, Hinduism relates to escapism. Similarly, many people have a belief that the more a man non-violent, like a cow, the more Hindutva he has. Yoga and awakening are unnoticed as if going away to take oil. Even most people do not understand the meaning of Kundalini. They consider it as the Kundali means horoscope letter of astrology. Although it is also true that only escapism and decency can save the world, because due to the hyperactivity of humans, this earth is on the verge of destruction. This kind of outward show is in every religion, but because in Hinduism it is over generous and tolerant, so it becomes a weakness, giving other religions unnecessary dominance. If you remain missing from your shop, others will come and sit in it. However, it is worth noting here that the famous yogi Gopi Krishna has written in his book that after awakening, he needed so much energy that he could not survive without some non-vegetarian food. It may also be that different types of people have different types of needs. I was reading a friend’s post on Facebook, who was writing that the habit of blaming one’s own religion, defaming it and leaving it easily or being converted or becoming secular on petty things is the habit of Hindus only and not people of other religions. People of other religions do not blame their own religion at any cost but blame its misunderstanding and mismanagement. That is why many people even say that Hinduism is more threatened by the people of their own religion than the people of other religions. By the way, the goal of this website is not to discuss religion, it was a matter of incident. It has to be accepted that due to the great virtue of the generosity and tolerance of Hinduism, today most scientific research is being done on this religion. Sometimes it becomes difficult to speak or write Dil Ki Baat, which can lead to misunderstandings. Sticking one’s qualities to it permanently also creates misunderstandings. What happens is that the properties keep changing. It may be that a particular quality is more visible in someone or it comes and goes more often than other qualities. The same I have said about some of the above mentioned qualities of Hinduism that they are more visible sometimes, not always. Time calculation is also necessary, to clarify the situation. It may also happen that certain qualities are adopted by only some people of religion and not by others. Therefore, along with religion, it is also necessary to keep an eye on its constituents. Somewhere one particular quality may be more dominant with a religion, while another particular quality in another place. All the virtues are present in all religions, sometimes some are more visible, sometimes others. But the quality which is more visible than the average, is permanently attached to that religion, and with that quality the identity of that religion is attached, which creates religious animosity. That is why it is said that fight evil, not religion; Fight evil, not evil doer. The conditions may apply. If someone looks at me when I’m little bit angry for my jenuine rights, and spreads a permanent impression about me that I am an angry person, then I will feel bad. In today’s world, all religions seem to me to be unbalanced, that is, in an average way. Some religions have more Satoguna, some have Rajoguna, and some have Tamoguna. Some are going north like leftist, some going south like right wing activist, none in the middle. I am telling this from the average point of view, or as different religious leaders express their religion to the world, in fact there are great people in all religions. If all the religions start living together friendly, then this average imbalance will also end, and perfect balance will be established in the whole world. Yoga is balance.
Take for example the dragons of China. It is said that the believer of dragons is a Chinese. But we all adore dragons. It is not associated with any particular country. While bathing in cold water, when the head-mounted kundalini is lowered from the front, there is a rapid warm breath, especially with a jolt outward, as if a dragon is spewing fire. Warm breathing is a common term in love affairs. Mouth opens wide like a dragon or lion, all teeth are visible on the outside, nose and cheeks are pulled upwards, causing eyes to become slightly clenched, body shape also becomes like dragon’s, stomach inwardly Constricted, and the chest expanding and contracting with breath. The movement of the body also feels like a dragon. The dragon is shown to be flying because the Kundalini also reaches any corner of the universe in a moment. The body is the universe itself, the mini-universe. To kill man by dragon means to destroy man’s ego by Kundalini Shakti and take it under its control. What is shown in films, especially in animation films, is how man conquered and tamed dragons, took many tasks from it, sat on it, traveled by air, and took revenge on his enemies, etc., it only shows to achieve various worldly accomplishments with kundalini. Whether there is Kundalini Shakti behind the power of the dreaded animals, it is a matter of psychological research. Perhaps this is the psychological reason behind the face which becomes distorted and scary during anger. Actually the heat generated by the contraction of muscles comes out in the form of hot breath. Now you will say how to bring down the Kundalini from the brain. There is no rocket science in this. Let the brain loose like a child or a dumb deaf, just the Kundalini will come down with a jerky deep out breath and an inward contraction of the abdomen. Although quickly climbs up again. It takes practice to keep the Kundalini down continuously.
The assessment of a man’s face determines his personality
The assessment of a man’s face determines his personality. It’s just a matter of common sense. Arms and legs need strength to compete physically. The total power of the body is limited and determined. It cannot be increased immediately. That’s why the only way left is to give them the power of another part of the body. You cannot reduce the activity of any part too much, because all the organs are connected to each other. You can make a noticeable or decisive lack of power in the brain itself, because it has accumulated a lot of excess energy in the form of extravagant thoughts and feelings. That’s why faces get distorted during anger and fighting, because energy is coming down from it. Even before starting a fight, men do abusive or frivolous debate, so that thoughts and feelings and the thinking power of the mind are obstructed and due to the distorted face, that power comes down to the arms etc. That is why it is seen that even the slightest smile saves miraculously from serious quarrels. Due to this, the power starts returning to the brain, due to which the power of thinking increases and the battle is averted due to lack of power to the warrior organs. That’s why everyone wants to be friends with a smiling and calm person, even if someone smiles in a lie, and everyone runs away from the jealous and tense person.
