~ Why Yoga is strictly Hindu

As Yoga is now over 80 billion dollar (over 5 lakh crores INR)  industry worldwide, as usual greedy west (along with some ignorant useful idiot Indians/Gurus) is gearing up to de-link Yoga from Hinduism, making it “Secular” , “Atheist”  Exercise or kind of cool Gymnastic thing!

Here is detail analysis for all ignorant – Why Yoga is strictly Hindu, which can’t be separated even if Western Abrahmics try hard to patent/copyright or Appropriate/Digest it to claim ownership!

Also understand clear definitions of important Sanskrit words (used in Yoga and Mediations) which are non-translatable into English (common mistakes people do):

Must READ => WHY YOGA IS STRICTLY HINDU (via TheBoldIndian)

Sanskrit to English non-traslatable words to understand Yoga:

  • Brahman or Ishwara God

    Brahman-Ishwara-is-not-God

    Aatman  Soul or Spirit

    aatman-is-not-Soul

~ Shivoham mantra proof: Universe and Human Brain is same, we’re like micro-cosmos

Most common self inquiry & confusion to every one – “Who am I ??”…Great Hindu sage Adi Shankaracayrya answers – “Shivoham” (you’re like Shiva!..the nature of Bliss) in this beautiful Sanskrit Shloka “Nirvana Shatkam”. Listen song with English translation  below with pictures to understand Shiv-Shakti in you!

Adi Shankara just summarized 8000+ years old Hindu Veda scripture wisdom to ordinary curious humans.

Today’s so called “Modern Science” proved it again what was known to Hindus  since long using some recent experiments and pictures!

READ: Universe and Brain Cells are same

See below how today’s Physicists just proved Veda teachings of Hinduism is right! They showed Brain cells have same pattern as that of Cosmos.

If you could understand these pictures below, you’ve understood Shiva and Shakti…your Body , your Aatman (soul) and Cosmos connections…

"Shiv = Shati = Human Body =Cosmos = Hinduism = Aatman = Bramhan = Brain cell- Hinduism-india"

"Brain cell = Cosmos=Brahman=Shiva=OM"

Universe and human body resonate on OM sound and other similar frequencies in Sanskrit Mantra…OM=MC2=Shiva=Cosmos=Shakti-HinduismIn Hinduism, Male and Female are not different, they are just different menifestations of same Power born to maintain balance on the earth.

Shiva (static force or Purusha) , Shakti (Dynamic force or Prakrati)…they are same Cosmos (Brahman)…they are in Unity (not just equal), they are same….

Respect both energies – Static and Dynamic…they are creation of same cosmos.

shivashakti = Cosmos = UnityHence proved:  Man= Woman =Animals = Plants = Other species = Micro Cosmos = Unity = OM….

we-all-are-same-hinduism-india-cosmosNo need of any self procalimed God’s chosen human or Gate-keepers between you and Cosmos (Brahman ), who might dominate you and your family, ask for heavy Donations, force to accept their Order….all for what??  Booking ticket to imaginary Heaven that to after Death!!  Ooopsss….

See Science also proved…All Human, Animals, Plants are DIVINE……nobody is inferior or superior… only different menifestations of same Cosmos (supreme force).

Shiva and Shakti resides in each DNA, each Cell…..so relax…don’t search them outside or wait till death!   🙂 😀 😀

Just close eyes and meditate daily to feel home & at peace!

~ Happy Gregorian New Year : Comparing East Vs West Celebrations

Wish You & Family a very Happy New Year 2016….

1st January is a start of Eurocentric Abrahmic Gregorian  New Calender Year…which is generally used in International Trade to avoid confusion. However, many countries still follow their own ancient Calendar in daily life, like in India (for Festivals, Maths, Astronomy, Marriages, Rituals, etc).

On the occasion of 1st Jan 2016, a Gregorian new year, lets learn important life lesson about Cultural, Economical, Social and Mental damage to country & its citizens due to choosing wrong calendar!

Understand journey of 2 calendars used in India – Gregorian for Global Trade/Business/Offices and Indian Traditional calendar which is much before Gregorian calendar or Abrahmics formation in west….used in all Indian Astronomy, Navigations, Agriculture, Religious festivals, Astrology (panchang),etc.

Major Difference between EAST Vs WEST New Year Celebration:

  • WEST- New Year Day starts at mid-night at 12:00 AM in DARK

  • INDIA – New Year Day starts with Sun Rise at 6:30 AM in SUNLIGHT &  POSITIVITY…

But, since when European Invasion (1857 – 1947),   India was forced to use Gregorian calendar as colonial tactics to brainwash people & deprive them from their own great ancient knowledge & wisdom.

Irony, it is neither suitable for Indian Whether and Climate…nor for Agricultural & economy…World famous Indian Mathematician Genius Prof C K Raju, one of fathers of Indian Supercomputer – PARAM in 1984 onwards and author of over 12 best selling books and many articles on Mathematics, Physics and Plilosophy of Science, is exposing here damages done to Indian economy, culture, astronomy and agriculture by using Gregorian calendar which is Abrahmic calculations for European whether/year!

Worth watching…show it to your kids & others interested in Maths, True World History, Geopolitics, East Vs West studies, Indian Civilization , Indology, Hinduism etc

A Tale of Two Calendars by Prof C K Raju (India Inspires Talks)

BTW – In Universe , nothing has changed…all planets are still revolving and stable….Only we humans  unnecessary give too much attention on Day-Night! 🙂

Its just another day and yet another year in life!
