Time to get back on your feet

Standard

I was watching “the lion king” and it reminded me of something which I forgot for a while now. There is one famous dialogue in the movie which brought back ‘Simbha’ to his kingdom. “Remember who you are”, said by his father when he was young. I believe no matter what; there is always some-one out there looking for you, perhaps your grandparents, family members etc from up there in the sky.

Now why am I saying this in a yoga related post? Maybe I want you to think that you were not built to suffer all day long in your office suffering from back pain, you were not built to sit back on your chair and keep worrying about knee joints, you were not built to see the blurred image of this beautiful world. You were meant to walk free, travel around the world, eat what you like, do the job you like.

Don’t allow a mere disease to hamper the prosperity of your life. Don’t allow your medical bills to eat up your bank account. Try something new to solve your problems. The reason I have a little bit of love for mathematics is fact that it tells that there are numerous ways of solving a single problem.

So here I am asking you to hop on the internet try to look out for ailments for your disease which you haven’t tried yet. Don’t be a couch potato and surrender yourself. There are a whole lot of medicine techniques which you haven’t heard yet. Try them….

The girl was not able to walk for 8 years but now she can. 🙂

This video is in hindi. It’s about a girl who got cured through Yoga therapy in the ashram. She was not able to walk for years but now she can.

Well, I am no one to push you beyond this but let me tell you that I have seen people walking on their own, the same people who were not able to do so for years. I have seen kids crying out of joy when they stood up on their feet once again after a long time.
I have seen people crying out and getting rid up of a lot of stuff from inside. I have seen people eating dinner because they love it not because they have too. There is huge difference when you are eating with a smile on your face. J

Listen, I have learned a lot from my mistakes, and through the hard way. May be it’s time to love mathematics again try a different formula. I work in a yoga ashram but I am not saying yoga is the only way, try Ayurveda, Homeopathy, meditation, Chinese medicines and hell of other things. Just do yourself a favour think for a minute and ask yourself don’t you want to roar like Simbha again J??

Just remember who you are right now and who you want to be……

State of pure bliss

Standard

20130310_100303

If there exists a state of pure bliss then it can be achieved only through meditation. Considering the fact that I am an engineer; believing in this kind of thought without any factual data is a bit difficult for me therefore I decided to try meditation myself.

Meditation isn’t something you can read in a book or watch a YouTube video and you’re done. It takes hours of guided teaching and then self practice. I was lucky to have a professional instructor. My earlier post on meditation was a third person view, an observation. However this time I was doing it myself.

In the beginning its kindda odd you close your eyes and then a million thoughts come into your mind and you start to think why you are doing this. Then comes a point of concentration where you start to take everything seriously and enjoy the session however this happens only if you let your thoughts to flow on their own. There is a huge difference between thinking about something and letting your thoughts come on their own.

After a lot of practice and guidance you finally find yourself in a place so blissful that you don’t wanna comeback from there. There are no thoughts just immense sense of fulfillment and happiness. You instructor might ask you to come back after sometime but you are in a place of zen and peace and you don’t want to be back. This is where real meditation starts.

I had a great time doing this and I am doing it everyday. When I am in meditation I feel like I am in Ireland… may be because of the movies/songs. Hope to see you there.

Time to say Good Bye and Namaste!

Standard

Another month passed in the Ashram a lot of things happened. A lot of classes, traveling and shopping!!!! But now all my friends are leaving… the course finished!

Good bye!

Time to say Good bye. Everyone got along very well. Ever smiling and always happy.
Time passed and I never realized that it’s almost the end of the month. I wish everyone  could have stayed a bit longer…

Time to make new friends but it doesn’t mean I am ever gonna forget my other friends. Technically I remember every single friend of mine and how or when we met. Razor sharp memory ( Mahendra)
